I’ve been in the real estate business full time since 1996, but have lived with it at the dinner table as long as I can remember. My father started an independent real estate office when I was 7 years old, and in 1996 I joined him as a sales associate in our Mount Vernon office which had become affiliated with Windermere Real Estate.
After about five years of selling homes in Mount Vernon, we had the opportunity to buy the Anacortes Windermere office in 2001, and we jumped at it. Since that time I’ve been in Anacortes running our Anacortes office. My dad stayed in Mount Vernon and continued running that office until my brother Josh took over the reigns there. Together, we co-own and operate the three offices in Skagit County, as well as the San Juan Island Windermere in Friday Harbor and a mortgage company.
I love the business, and I love the people, which makes heading to the office every morning a treat, not a job. I have done everything from home and land sales, condo and new construction, to development work and commercial sales and leasing. Our three offices have approximately 85 agents and 14 staff, and lead the county in real estate sales. Outside of real estate I’m a person who loves the outdoors, lucky me, I live in the most amazing community for the outdoorsy type. I love to bike, run, hike, snowboard, rock climb and on down the line. If it involves being outdoors and being active, I’ll do it. I have a 14 year old son Christopher, an amazing girlfriend Mitzi, and a golden-doodle dog Quinzhee that keeps us all smiling.
