I have a deep-seated passion for real estate and supporting my clients in their journey of buying and selling a home. I have been working in the real estate field for 27 years and have learned a tremendous amount along the way. A great deal of my success comes from my ability to accommodate my clients’ needs; their best interest is always my priority! I have worked with a diversity of clients, properties and conditions. This experience gives me an upper hand in dealing with any situation; I’ll work my hardest to get it done! Working throughout the years I have had the opportunity to gain a great deal of skill and familiarity in the marketing and selling of residential, multi-family, commercial, raw land, housing developments and waterfront properties. I genuinely desire to create a relationship with my clients and will do my best to give every client the best experience possible. Having a passion for real estate has cultivated the success I have had with buying, selling and flipping homes.

I began my career in real estate in 1989. I have thoroughly enjoyed learning the ins and outs of real estate. I believe my experience and hard work demonstrates my comprehensive knowledge and understanding of selling and buying homes, making me an extremely qualified and sought-after broker. I am a licensed Associate Broker, as well as achieving a Certified Residential Specialist designation. In 2007,  I earned the coveted CCIM (Certified Commercial Investment Member) designation, which is considered a doctorate education in commercial real estate. With that being said, I am confident that I am able to provide sound advice to clients about their properties.

Today, I founded Bellwether Real Estate alongside four other owners, including my son. I am unbelievably proud of the passion and energy that is fostered at Bellwether. The brokerage has grown remarkably in just under two years, with around 50 brokers at Bellwether. I strive to stay well educated in numerous topics such as; real estate law, real estate brokerage and management, commercial real estate brokerage, tax deferred exchanges, as well many other subjects. I am confident in my skill set to keep my clients well informed, providing the best possible experience for them when purchasing a property.

I was born and raised in the beautiful Northwest and try to fully take advantage of the activities it has to offer. From skiing Mt. Baker’s powder in the winter to boating in the gorgeous San Juans, there is always an activity to enjoy. My family is very important to me and I love spending time with my three children and my wife, Lisa. I believe you will benefit both from my lifetime of knowledge and my sound opinion and analysis of real estate.  I will provide you with new and creative ways to market your property as well as a willingness to do whatever it takes to get your property sold.

I began my Real Estate career in 2010, at 18 years old. I’ve had a passion for Real Estate growing up and have enjoyed the challenges it presents. Beginning my career at a young age, I have been given a unique perspective on marketing and buying properties. I am a highly motivated individual with a drive to support my clients in every way I can.

I graduated from Western Washington University in 2014 from the College of Business and Economics with a focus in Economics. Getting an education from a highly ranked business school taught me how to think critically and find solutions for challenging situations. I’ve refined my skills of collaborating with others to succeed in whatever we are working towards. I take these skills with me in my career, always working my hardest to provide my clients with ample guidance in buying a property. I work hard to develop honest relationships with my clients and will do my best to provide a top-notch service to them. I was faced with my biggest challenge at 16 years old, being diagnosed with cancer. This taught me to work my absolute hardest every single day and live each day to its fullest potential.

I grew up in Bellingham and have always enjoyed being active. I am a huge sports fan (go Hawks!) and love playing basketball and tennis. I also enjoy working out at Bellingham Fitness, swimming and being with friends and family. I will go the extra mile to make sure you have the best possible experience in selling your home.

I grew up around real estate which sparked my passion. With my family having many years of experience, I gained understanding of the business from a young age. To be able to have this opportunity I extremely thankful. I’m excited to bring a new perspective to the table; with my number one priority being my client’s satisfaction. I’ll go above and beyond to answer any questions my clients may have and strive for real, lasting relationships.

Knowing how stressful moving can be, my goal is to make the transaction as simple and easy as possible. Whether you’re buying or selling I strive to get you the best deal. I have a genuine interest in helping our community with their real estate needs.

Some of my hobbies outside of real estate are cars, motorcycles, camping & outdoors. I also enjoy spending time with friends and family here in the beautiful PNW. Wanting my clients to be satisfied with their real estate needs is my #1 goal that I won’t stop until I achieve it.
