Before moving to Boise I helped clients buy and sell houses in Seattle for almost 10 years. I grew up in Boise's North end and have been practicing real estate here since 2007. I specialize in the older north and east end neighborhoods and homes in the foothills. I have extensive experience orchestrating the fixing up of older homes to make them as safe, comfortable, and energy efficient as modern homes without losing their charm. My strengths are in communicating and negotiating, but more importantly I strive to identify long term value and provide advice that will lead to wealth creation, as well as the comfort of owning a home you love.
My goal is to make sure my clients get the best access to the housing marketplace possible, and the best access to the information needed to make intelligent financial decisions. As an agent I spend my energy providing education to my clients about the market and the process, I make myself available so that opportunities are not missed and rely on my experience in marketing and negotiating to make sure my clients’ needs are fully met.
In 2000 I started the CoHo Team of Windermere Agents. The idea was simple, tie my own success in real estate to fundraising for non-profit agencies doing work in housing and community development. To do this, I commit to donating 1/3 of my commission checks. To date I have donated over $330,000 to organizations primarily in Seattle, but I look forward to expanding my support of the non-profit community in Boise. The CoHo Team has 4 full-time members in Seattle as well as myself here in Boise.
As first-time home buyers, we wanted to work with someone we could trust, and our CoHo Team agent proved to be exactly that. He worked hard to help us through every step of our home buying process, showing us dozens of houses and staying patient as we looked for something that fit our needs. His extensive knowledge of neighborhoods, market trends, building quality and the art of negotiating made us feel secure in our purchase. Our expectations were exceeded! And of course we were happy to contribute to the larger mission of the CoHo team, which is doing something really innovative. We offer our wholehearted endorsement.
