Welcome

Whether you’re buying or selling a home, your success hinges upon the expert advice and services provided by your real estate agent.

I pride myself in earning trust before business by building lasting relationships and providing quality service. Having lived in the beautiful Whatcom County for 18 years, I can without a doubt say it is one of the fastest growing areas in the state of Washington. Since my first home purchase at the age of 21, I have always had a peak interest in helping investors build their net worth in real estate or finding a comfortable home for first time buyers. My duty is to educate my clients on their real estate needs while acting as a consultant in their transactions. Previously, I provided contracting services in industrial inspection for 6 years which helped me in developing a keen eye to detail essentially assuring my clients receive every key feature. With a Master Certified Negotiation Expert (MCNE) designation, I am among only 1% of Realtors nationwide who excels in negotiations on behalf of my clients. An Associate’s degree in Applied Sciences from the Bellingham Technical College along with continued education in economics in Whatcom Community College, my clients can also rest assured on my knowledge with market trends. Together we can promote positive community and economic growth in our neighborhoods!

This website is filled with tips and resources to help you quickly understand what you need to know — and how I deliver the services designed to meet your needs.

I’m the agent who specializes in this local Bellingham real estate market – and has the reputation for putting you, the client, first.

Looking forward to learning more about your needs and goals!

 

I recently accepted the challenge of participating in the 2019 Big Climb benefiting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. This event takes participants up 69 floors, or 1,311 steps, to reach the highly acclaimed observation deck with breathtaking views of the entire Puget Sound region. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Big Climb event raises money through individual and team fundraising, sponsorship and entry fees which is then invested in its mission to fund blood cancer research and patient services. In 2018, the Big Climb raised a record breaking $3,007,080 and I hope to add to this growing number. I am asking you to help by supporting my fundraising efforts with a donation by clicking the image above or clicking HERE.

Your tax-deductible gift will make help bring us a step closer to funding and finding a cure for blood cancers. It is faster and easier than ever to support this great cause – you can make your donation online by simply clicking on the link at the bottom of this message.
