Owner, Principal Broker
I am an Oregonian- born in Corvallis, graduated high school in Salem, University grad in Eugene. I owned a construction company in Portland, and a real estate company in Bend. Growing up and working on my grandfather’s farm in Monmouth instilled a powerful work ethic in me, which included the importance of saying what I mean, and meaning what I say.
After graduating from the University of Oregon with a degree in music, I traveled to Japan and experienced one of the defining moments of my life. I trekked on foot with my closest childhood friend along a Buddhist pilgrim’s trail, which has been walked by other pilgrims for over 1200 years. I discovered the simplicity of being present in this moment. Putting one foot in front of the other, in a foreign land, over 750 miles will do that to you. It has been almost 24 years since my adventure, but I still carry with me the sights, sounds, smells and profound lessons of that journey.
It is with my attention on this moment that I focus my intent on the needs and best interests of my clients. Combining this with over 25 years of real estate and construction experience, I strive to provide the most ethical and highest level of service to each of our clients.
I am a facilitator of your real estate experience. I provide knowledge and experience. I connect you with the best professionals in the industry, including lenders, inspectors, escrow, builders, and attorneys.
After all these years, I still love what I do, and I look forward to the opportunity to care for your real estate experience.
