I am that professional with a proven track record.
I lead a three person management team which, with the assistance of a 15 person sales force, managed to take a languishing condominium project that had been on the market, inactive, for over a year, and within just two months had 5 units under contract and at the end of the first year, another 6 units had closed. If you have a difficult property and are looking for a cutting edge marketing attention getter, I am that person, with a proven track record of success in selling the "lifestyle".
In addition to ongoing support for the Windermere Foundation, I have been active in the local chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation since 1999, participating in various charity fund raisers. I have volunteer 8 hours a month assisting with the facilitation of a financial planning/education series at my church. For over 5 years I have been a volunteer tour guide, giving visitors to the Oregon State Capital guided tours including the pinnacle of visiting the golden pioneer! Most recently I have been a volunteer delivery driver for Lincoln County Meals on Wheels.
I grew up on a dairy in Central California where I learned the farmers work ethic. After serving 18 years, I retired from the US Coast Guard in 1996. There I learned to put others first and how to finish a job, no matter how long or how far away from home that job may have been. I have retained their motto, Semper Paratus, which means Always Ready. In 2003 I completed my BS degree in Business Management from University of Phoenix. An educational journey that I began in North Bend Oregon in 1986 was finally complete. My wife and I raised 5 children in the Willamette Valley and now make our home on the central coast.

I take pride in offering high-caliber full-service residential real estate expertise. My clients are my top priority, and I focus on delivering the best possible results for them.
The real estate market is hyperlocal, seasonal and temperamental—in other words, it can change on a dime. Technology has made information more accessible to everyone, but it can be difficult to keep up with recent events that affect home values. The benefits of working with a licensed real estate professional go far beyond what a mobile app, online video, or website can do.
I provide my clients with information on market seasonality and information relevant to what is happening in their specific neighborhood. This customized analysis includes recent comparable sales that factor into an offer and acceptance strategy.
Successful negotiations help move a conversation forward and transform the process into an agreement that’s a win for all parties. Negotiation is not only a skill, but a mindset. I keep my clients’ best interests top of mind as I negotiate on their behalf.
I am dedicated to transactional excellence for every listing and sale. What this means for you is that I oversee every detail of the real estate transaction. The transaction is far from over once an offer has been accepted. I monitor inspections, appraisals, title, escrow and loan processes. Communication and collaboration with all the partners and parties involved with the transaction ensures a smooth and timely closing. I am committed to my clients before, during and after a sale.
