After traveling the world for 20 years in search of adventure, education, and experience I came back to Seattle. I’ve pared my goals to just that of solving the housing crisis. One excellent client at a time. Through life’s experiences and God’s patient instruction I have learned that people are the only thing that matter. What is important is that you are served properly and well. It is not about me. IT'S ABOUT YOU.
When someone is spending a lot of money to buy a home, or needing the best result from a sale of their home, it is my philosophy to do the best job I can. To work hard, to use my experience(19) yrs) to put my clients in the absolute best position I can. The idea of not doing what I can for my clients doesn't hold water.Designations
I want to be designated as your Realtor. Your trusted source of information about the housing market. Someone who has served and will serve you well enough that you will actively refer refer me to your friends.
