Whether you are purchasing or selling property, you need to find an agent that will give you the advantage and will work hard on your behalf. I have drawn these traits from my many years of experience, and I stand out first and foremost as a businessman. A longtime resident of Coeur d Alene, I owned and operated of a thriving retail chocolate franchise, as well as being a principal owner and founder of multiple stores in the fast-casual restaurant industry. My successful business experience spanning over three decades, gives me that advantage in the art of negotiation, communication, and by dealing with complex contracts in the real estate industry. My extensive knowledge, dedication and integrity will offer you peace of mind in knowing I am someone you can trust. I bring enthusiasm, commitment, creativity, and a wealth of significant real estate and construction expertise as well. Combine this with my aggressive marketing strategies and strong negotiating skills, I understand how to get results. I have handled numerous property transactions during my career, plus worked with contractors and designers, and have coordinated all aspects of the building process from new construction to remodeling.

Today, along with my business acumen, I focus on building strong relationships with all those I work with through my dedication and hard work, to gain their satisfaction. My commitment in working with clients is to help reduce the stress and drama often associated with real estate transactions. I am persistent in negotiations, and do not easily back down while mastering the art of peacemaking as well. I understand and will listen diligently to the needs of buyers and sellers. I strive to keep good relationships strong, by dealing with everyone respectfully, and command fairness in all my business transactions.

I am joined with my wife of 39 years in marriage, Candace, who is a REALTOR and Accredited Home Staging Professional. She adds another dimension and insight which propelled us in becoming the #1 Top Producers for Windermere PF in 2018!

Our son Shawn recently has joined our team in 2019, is a REALTOR and works as our Buyers Agent. He brings a wealth of knowledge, professionalism and communication skills in assisting anyone looking to buy a home.

My personal mission and philosophy is to strive for excellence in all I do by providing exemplary service to my clients. I place tremendous value on building long lasting relationships and knowing I can be referred with confidence. I pride myself in my accountability to always do what is right, and hold myself to a higher standard of professionalism and integrity, no matter what the cost.
