I moved to Seattle in 2010 after finishing school in Minnesota. Since then, I have held a variety of jobs, including working as a wild edibles forager, carpenter, property manager, and journalist. My wife, Shanleigh, and I are proud homeowners in both Victoria, BC and Seattle, WA. Throughout my career and personal life, I have developed a passion for property ownership and helping others find homes of their own. I believe that everyone deserves a place to call their own, and I am committed to using my expertise to make that dream a reality for my clients.
When I am not consulting withclients, I enjoy wood working, wine making, abstract painting, reading, and creative writing. I am also passionate about user design and research. Shanleigh and I like to enjoy time off Vancouver Island on our boat, Cascadia, with our two cats, Mr. Strange and Cherise.
Real Estate Expertise
I have been a licensed agent since 2018, and I offer expertise in home selling, purchasing, building, and renovating. I am particularly passionate about guiding first-time home buyers through the process of property ownership, providing valuable insights on renovations, investing, and vacation rental start-ups. My aim is not to make a quick sale, but to serve as your real estate consultant, leveraging my experience and expertise to advise you on smart purchases that align with your goals. I am committed to promoting the financial well-being and happiness of my clients.
Rental and Investment Property Experience
I have had the pleasure of managing traditional rental properties since 2015, as well as building and overseeing successful vacation rental properties on Airbnb since 2018. My expertise lies in beautifying and restoring properties, which has led me to renovate and manage the updates of aged properties and estates. I am not afraid to get my hands dirty, and because of that I have experience in many trades, including carpentry, landscaping, and gardening. I take great pride in consulting on the staging and styling of properties, as well as developing unique accommodations that set them apart from the competition. My streamlined approach to property management ensures a hassle-free experience for both property owners and renters or guests. If you're looking for a traditional or vacation rental property, I have the skills and experience to help you find the perfect space.
