I am a Washington native, originally from the Olympic Peninsula, and have been a Seattle resident since 2004. I currently reside in the Phinney Ridge neighborhood, and have lived in Green Lake, Maple Leaf, and Wedgwood. After studying Geographic Economics at UW and working as an emergency medical technician, I spent a lot of time traveling internationally before returning home to work in carpentry. Travel abroad has helped me better appreciate all that the Pacific Northwest has to offer and understand how lucky we are to live here.
I began working in real estate in 2004 and never expected that I would enjoy a career as much as I have enjoyed being a Realtor. Helping clients find the perfect house, sell their current home, and navigate a wide variety of housing transitions, has been enormously gratifying.
I strive to understand the wants and needs of my home buyer clients. My goal is to help you find the right home -- a home that you'll be happy in for a very long time. I enjoy the negotiation process and will do my job to my best ability to help you purchase a home under the most favorable and affordable terms. In our search, I bring hands-on experience and knowledge of building construction to educate you about building condition and observe possible defects.
For my sellers, preparation and research regarding your home is vital. After I conduct a detailed market analysis of your home, comparing it to local properties, my work has just begun. My understanding of market conditions and comparable homes helps me guide you appropriately in pricing, marketing strategy, and negotiations. I am able to offer a list of referral-based contractors, if necessary, to prepare your home for the market and maximize the sales price. When your home debuts to the public, professional photography, marketing material, as well as widespread web-based regional and national advertising gets it the exposure needed to sell, for the most money possible.
