Web Master, Eugene Team Broker
I’ve lived in Oregon almost my entire life. I grew up in the small coastal town of North Bend. Spending my formative years close to the incredible beauty of Oregon’s rugged coastline, I developed a deep love for nature. My family often spent part of our summers in Sunriver, a resort community outside of Central Oregon’s Bend, and there, I fell in love with the mountains too. These remain my true loves (well, several of them anyway.)
I went on to study English Literature at the University of Oregon, graduating then working jobs that had nothing to do with English literature. Living in Eugene, I would spend large portions of my free time walking and biking through different neighborhoods all over town, gaining a better sense for the community and local geography. (Hey, I’m a small-town guy, so it doesn’t take too much to entertain me.)
Little did I know, this would be great preparation for an eventual career as a real estate agent. I first met Kip all the way back in 2006 through our shared adventures in Japanese Zen and stayed in touch with him over the years. In early 2018, he approached me about helping him expand LOHR Real Estate’s presence in Eugene and writing copy for his new website. Finally, I had a chance to put my English degree – and my intimate knowledge of Eugene’s neighborhoods – to use! The rest, as they say, is history.
I know Eugene inside and out, having lived here for most of the past 17 years, and I have a keen appreciation for the sense of place here. I’ve also witnessed Bend’s transformation firsthand and continue to spend as much time as I can in Central Oregon. I recognize how important it is to find a home and a neighborhood that align with what you want to cultivate for yourself and your loved ones.
I also recognize the importance of intuition in guiding the home search process. As a buyer’s agent, I provide you with all the tools and data points you need to connect the dots while also offering plenty of space for your own journey of discovery to unfold. I’m thrilled to be part of a team that places such a high value on really engaging our clients as individuals and connecting them with our wonderful communities.
