I bought my first home when I was 21 years old. Besides some bedroom furniture, I owned basically nothing. I remember being overwhelmed by the process and the weight of the responsibility. When I closed on the house and picked up the keys, I celebrated by enjoying a pizza and a beer sitting on the floor in the middle of my very own living room. I was so proud and excited to own a home of my own; something that was all mine. It was an experience I will never forget and one that influences what I do today. My background in Real Estate spans over 24 years and includes sales, restoration of historic homes, and construction and development. Over the years I have always tried to bring the same sense of pride and excitement to my customers that I felt as a first-time home buyer myself. And now as a builder, I strive to create beautiful homes and a home buying experience that is fun and easy. I am a lifelong resident of the northwest and understand the importance of a good name. From start to finish, my reputation is represented through our quality of craftsmanship, honorable dealings and attention to detail. And that is why I am involved in every aspect of Marnella Homes. My vision of the Marnella companies and the experience that I expect for our homeowners is what motivates me and every one of my team members.
