More About Me

Business Philosophy

I love helping people. I operate my business as an advisor and counselor. I will provide you with all the information, inform you of all the options available, and be your advocate in your transaction to purchase or sell. My goal when working with my clients is to reduce the stress and make the process as easy and understandable as possible. I am accessible, detail oriented, and go to great lengths to see that each client feels that they have received excellent service.

Success

As a Managing Broker, I have had extensive experience listing and selling homes and condos in the Greater Seattle area. I specialize in residential properties including single family homes, condominiums, multiplexes, fixers, and 1031 tax deferred exchanges. I enjoy many referrals from happy past customers. I am a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), and a Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES). I was honored from 2011-2016 with the "Five Star Real Estate Agent" status awarded by Seattle magazine.

Background

I have enjoyed over 17 years as a licensed real estate professional. I am an income property owner who owns and manages rental properties. My previous career was a successful solo musical performer in the Northwest, Berlin, Japan, and on cruise ships in Mexico and the Caribbean.

Personal

I enjoy singing and playing jazz and blues music. I grew up on Mutiny Bay on Whidbey Island, graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in Communications and Advertising. I served 6 years as a Board Member of the Ballard Chamber of Commerce, am a member of the Rental Housing Association, and the USGA. I am a supporter of the Seattle Art Museum, The Nordic Heritage Museum, and The Ballard Boys and Girls Club.
