Certifications: Masters Circle Member Top Producer/ SRES Certified/ CNE-Certified Negotiation Expert/ Earth Advantage Certified
I received a BA from The University of Oregon, GO DUCKS!! I followed my passion in my first career, I was a Full Time Tennis Professional for 15 years. Interesting enough teaching tennis and selling Real Estate have many correlations. Both from the competitive side of things as well as the ability to coach a buyer or seller through the process of finding a home or getting their home sold. My education didn't end in the classroom, or on the tennis court, I continue to educate myself daily in the ever-changing Real Estate Market here in Portland Oregon.
My ability to understand the current and ever changing market conditions as well as to market and sell a home will help make for a very successful Real Estate Transaction.
I have taken the time and energy over the past 10 years to become a Certified Negotiation Expert, A Million Dollar Club Platinum Club Member, A top Producer for Windermere Stellar year after year as well as a member of the local and National Real Estate Organizations.

I grew up on SE 40th and Hawthorne, the fourth of 28 grandchildren. My early years were spent developing a love for the outdoors in the Willamette Valley. Now I live in Northeast Portland with my wife and two children. We love everything Portland has to offer from the local music to the microbrews to the amazing food from around the world. Where else can you start your day with a perfect cup of coffee, check the forecast and decide to ski, surf, fish, kite surf or bike most any day of the year? My passion for Portland is endless.

Marketing & Research
There is never a second chance at a first impression. Top profits on homes start with proper market preparation which include: Professional marketing, photography, staging and property enhancement. These are key elements to getting your property under contract fast. However, the one aspect of market preparation that trumps all others is PRICING! Pricing a home perfectly is a mix of art and science. In addition to having the collaboration of other brokers in my office, I have access to the most current market data and resources to help you make the most informed decisions to reach your goal.
Internet marketing is huge! Statistics show that 95% of all residential real estate buyers use the internet for market information and listed properties. I subscribe to multiple syndicating services that feed my listings to all the major sites like Zillow, Redfin, Trulia, RMLS and Craigslist. When listing your home with me, it will be seen by thousands of potential buyers within hours of going on the market. Conversely, I also use the internet to help my buyers find the perfect house. I set up a custom search profile for all of my buyers that can be continually tailored to fit your needs. This system keeps us in sync with the latest properties to hit the market. When we find the perfect home to write an offer on, I prepare a custom report to help you make a winning offer.
