I have been a Kitsap County resident since 1972. I was raised on Bainbridge Island and graduated from Bainbridge High School. I joined the United States Army after high school and served in Kentucky, Virginia and overseas in Germany. Upon returning home I commercial crab fished in Alaska, the Bering Sea, Southeast Alaska, and Kodiak. I worked for seven years at the iconic Town and Country Market on Bainbridge Island and I have been a first Mate with the Washington State Ferries since 1999. I have traveled quite extensively to places around the world including Australia, Mexico, Spain, and the Caribbean. Of all the places I've been, the only place I can imagine raising my daughter is right here in Kitsap County.
I have been involved in construction since I was sixteen and have done numerous projects. I built my home in Suquamish in 2001 on 2.5 acres and still reside there. I find that this practical experience is an asset to my clients whether it’s buying or selling a home. I've been a licensed Realtor since 2007, and have assisted many people in the complex endeavor of buying or selling property. I like to think of myself as deal finding house hunter who is passionate about what I do!
In short, I know a great deal about this area I call home and believe that all of my experience qualifies me to guide buyers and sellers. If you're a young couple purchasing your first home, or a professional moving to the area, or a retiree looking to downsize, I know the lay of the land and will work hard to help you achieve your goals.
