A Project Manager Approach

If you’re thinking to buy or sell a property, then I welcome the opportunity to work with you. I’m a dedicated residential real estate professional committed to providing superior service and exceeding your expectations. As you may know, buying or selling a home is a big undertaking. To help you manage all the moving parts of the transaction, I take a project manager’s approach that pulls the entire process together. From the moment you say, “I think it’s time to make a move,” all the way through the last signature on the last closing document, you can trust me to negotiate hard on your behalf. Buying or selling a home can be a thrilling experience and my goal is to take the roadblocks out of the process and make it as smooth as possible for you.

Seattle Neighborhood Expert

I’m a Puget Sound native and I’ve lived in Seattle all my adult life. I’m President of the Seattle Condominium Network, a Premier Director for Windermere Real Estate and a certified Relocation Specialist. When I work for you, I’ll combine my knowledge of Seattle’s neighborhoods and the local housing market with a strong work ethic and meticulous attention to detail. If you’re looking to buy, then I can introduce you to wonderful Seattle neighborhoods you have yet to discover. If you’re a seller, then I can help you set the right price to get your home sold so you can move on to your next dream. My leadership, experience and training allow me to provide valuable insight and guidance to help you make informed choices during every step of your real estate journey.

Building a Lasting Relationship

A huge part of a successful working relationship is getting to know and understand you. Reaching your goals requires that I not only listen to what you say you want, but also hear what you’re not saying. I have a special knack for reading between the lines and observing a client’s actions which is often more useful in getting to the heart of what you really want. And our relationship doesn’t end after the last document is signed. After closing, you can continue to count on me to be your real estate rockstar anytime you have a question, want to get a sense of where the market is going, or just want to laugh about how many times the GPS sent you in the wrong direction during your house hunt.

A Drive to Create Success

Have you ever wondered what it takes to summit Mt. Rainier twice? Or complete seven marathons? Or log thousands of miles on a road bike? I’ve done all of these things and I can tell you firsthand that it takes an incredible amount of dedication, commitment, focus, consistency and a tenacious desire to succeed—not to mention a great sense of humor. I take those qualities honed on the side of a mountain or during the last mile of a marathon and integrate them into my real estate business to create positive results for my clients. I will use those same qualities to help you achieve your real estate goals.
I have a passion for helping people and getting them what they want. I’m driven to create success for my clients out of a sometimes crazy process that can be both immensely challenging and extraordinarily rewarding. If you’re looking for someone who’ll show up for you each and every day, ready to run a marathon, then contact me. I would enjoy helping you cross the finish line.
