As a Bellevue-based real estate agent helping both buyers and sellers, I consider it my mission to listen to you, ask the right questions, and truly understand your motivations and preferences.
I’m here to help whether you’re a first-time buyer or a seasoned real estate investor. Every client and property is unique. My approach is tailored based on what’s best for your situation instead of taking a cookie-cutter approach.
Originally from Chicago, I’ve lived in five states, and I’m now happy to call Bellevue home.
I’ve always been drawn to real estate, buying my first home at 26 and my first investment property the following year. After that, I continued as a real estate investor with a focus on renovating and flipping houses, in addition to being a property manager for fifteen years.
I brought my love of real estate to the mortgage industry. For four years, I worked as a mortgage broker, giving me a deep understanding of buyers’ experience as they navigate the lending process.
My time as a principal of a prominent actuarial consulting firm helped me develop negotiation, problem-solving, and customer service skills. Earning a Masters in Business Administration from Northwest University in Kirkland allowed me to hone my project management and negation skills
After many years in Arizona, my wife and I sold our home in Tucson and moved to the Seattle area. We took our time to find the right spot, exploring many different towns and neighborhoods. We loved the food scene in Woodinville, the beaches of Whidbey Island but ultimately fell in love with the vibrant city of Bellevue.
Purchasing our home in Bellevue inspired me to get back into real estate, this time as an agent. I saw firsthand what it was like to be a buyer in this market. The home buying process can be quite the rollercoaster ride, with the greater Seattle area having so many great neighborhoods to choose from.
When I’m not working, I spend time giving back to the community. I’ve volunteered for the Salvation Army in Arizona, and now in Washington, I’ve joined the Advisory Board for the Army’s Eastside Corps in Bellevue. Family members of mine were devastated by Hurricane Katrina, and the Salvation Army provided the heal and relief they needed the most.
In my spare time, you might find me cycling around Mercer Island, skiing at Snoqualmie or Crystal Mountain, running, swimming, hiking, or traveling. I’ve completed two Ironman’s and Ultraman Florida. My wife is always roping me into running events.
