Experience and Knowledge
Morgan began his real estate career in November of 1984. In 1988 he obtained a managing brokers license and with a partner purchased an existing real estate office. As the housing industry has changed, Morgan has continued to obtain further education to remain an expert in the field. For nearly 40 years, Morgan has worked primarily in the Lake Chelan area, having sold many properties more than once. Being involved in many land use and zoning issues over the years has kept him abreast of city, county and state issues that affect private property rights and value.
Starting real estate developments in 1995 for his own account and project management for clients, Morgan has an extensive background in residential and recreational projects. The ability to bring a project from concept to closing is both creative and challenging and requires both expertise and patience. Through development, his clients have created both equity and cash flow. Morgan has helped clients subdivide land, build and convert condominiums, change zoning/comprehensive plans, text amendments to allow certain land uses and a variety of other activities to create value. Determining the highest and best use is always the starting point and understanding the process and all the challenges is what sets Morgan apart from the rest.
Morgan is a member of the Lake Chelan Rotary Club and Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce. He served the community as a 20-year volunteer firefighter and as Commissioner in the Manson Fire Department. He served on the Chelan County Board of Adjustment, Chelan EMTs, Jaycees, Manson Community Council, numerous school groups, as a park league soccer coach and as a Chelan County Football official.
It's All About Relationships
Morgan and Kathleen Picton were married in 1978. They have raised 3 sons and are blessed with 7 grandchildren. They appreciate the importance of a family home and how it provides security and builds equity. Working as an expert in the real estate industry allows Morgan to help his clients with the biggest asset many of them will ever own. Morgan says "I appreciate and value the relationships I have with my clients and friends. I pledge to do my best to earn their trust and recommendations".
