As one of Seattle’s true natives, I’ve had the pleasure of watching each neighborhood evolve over the decades. I entered real estate in early 2002, after buying my second house and feeling like I was doing more work than my agent.

The market was just rebounding from the dot-com bust, and proceeded to take-off. I brought an extensive marketing and technology background to this career, just as the Northwest Multiple Listing Service was going online for the first time. I’ve competed against hundreds of offers and mastered the art of writing a winning one. Conversely, as a listing agent, I’ve honed my ability to draw multiple offers whenever possible.

I’m in my sixteenth year as a broker with the Mount Baker office of Windermere Real Estate.

Seattle Magazine readers have awarded me Best in Client Satisfaction honors via the 5-Star Agent program 12 years in a row.

I’ve built a practice on what one client calls “velvet glove service” (thank you, Robb). Personalized, buck-stops-here attention from prep to launch to close.

I’m proud to be a survivor in this ever-changing practice, and find the art of helping home owners and buyers truly rewarding.

Continuing Education
In 2004, I completed the highest education course an agent can pursue, earning an Associate Broker designation.  (The dept of licensing has now renamed that designation “Managing Broker”).  Those four months of courses included real estate law, broker management, and financing.

Annually, I receive an average of 30 clock-hours of continuing education to keep current on the ever-evolving changes to legal paperwork and protocols of Washington real estate.
