A native of the great Northwest I grew up with a fascination and interest in real estate. It's not that I allways wanted to be a Realtor, I just had an incurable fascination with houses. As a kid I would fix things around the house for my parents and got my first jobs doing yard work as a teen. After graduation it was on to construction jobs building houses with Clyde Downing Homes. At age 23 I got my real estate licence and started selling homes. Back then there were no computers, no cell phones and interest rates were in the 10% to 12% range. Anytime rates fell below 10% there was a rush on the market. In the 22 years since then I have had several mini carears within the business, its how I have remained passionate about this business and avoided burn out. From first time home buyers, new construction, development, expired listings and FSBO's, investing to the current specialty helping distressed homeowners. The real estate market is in an ever changing state and I feel, as a Realtor and business owner, that true professionals are allways looking to the horizon in order to develop the necessary expertise for any market. With decades of experience, a passion for this business and extensive training in past and current real estate trends i am able to provide exceptional service to my clients.
Over the last two decades I heve developed several areas of expertise including developing, market and selling new construction, selling residential homes and condos and investing. Over the last two years I have dedicated myself to helping distressed homeowners avoid foreclosure through short sales and other techniques. My team of negotiators and transaction managers has the resources and determination needed to complete complex short sale negotiations in the Seattle area.
