I was born and raised in Seattle and have spent most of my life living in or around Ballard. I began my career in real estate in 1973 after obtaining my Washington State Real Estate Sales License. From that moment on, real estate became a lifelong passion that allowed me to combine my problem solving skills and enjoyment of working with people.
I became the sole owner of Ballard Realty in 1980. At first, I focused on selling residences, but after gaining more knowledge of real estate, I decided to branch out, adding commercial and multifamily properties to my repertoire.
Today, I sell a vast array of properties ranging from residential homes to multimillion dollar commercial buildings and vacant land. Notably, I have listed and sold one multifamily building seven separate times and have sold upwards of 15 to 20 properties to a single client.
Most recently, I have been working on 1031 like/kind exchanges, moving owners from small properties to larger ones. The benefits are tremendous and the process is relatively easy. Professionally, I am a longtime member of the Northwest Multiple Listing Service (NWMLS) and the Commercial Brokers Association (CBA) and have served on various boards, including the Rules and Regulations Committee. I have also served as an arbitration mediator.
Along with my passion for a variety of real estate, I am most proud of the long-term relationships I have established with many of my clients. Through my dedication and proven track record, I have built a solid referral network and am now selling to second and third generations of clients. If you are looking to buy or sell real estate please give me a call and I would be happy discuss your options at length with you.
