Focused on building meaningful relationships and helping people find great places to call home, I am a broker for Windermere Real Estate in the Seattle area. Today, I work hard to be able to provide the best broker services through my commitment to and knowledge and understanding of my client's needs. Windermere is a locally born Northwest company that has grown throughout the Western U.S. grounded in community. 

I specialize in young couples and families. My understanding of the market begins with a commitment every week to see over twenty newly-listed homes on brokers tours. At 800 homes a year, that adds up! There is not an agent out there that is more informed about the market. This gives me an edge in negotiations and relationships with other brokers. I am able to find the right homes for the people I work with. I know the neighborhoods and more than anything, I want to connect great people with great places. 

I am passionate about what I do and about helping people reach their dreams through my exceptional knowledge and quality of service.

Specialties:  Relationship Development and Management, Leadership Development, Relationship-based Selling and Negotiation
