Helping sellers and buyers here in West Seattle has been my specialty for over 20 years. I love living here; our area has so much to offer. I enjoy the diverse home styles we have - from historic and charming to new and modern. After helping hundreds of my seller and buyer clients, I know that I can help you achieve your real estate goals too.
I have personally owned, remodeled, and sold many homes. This has given me a great deal of knowledge about home remodeling, new construction, hiring contractors, scheduling, finance, and all the various aspects involved. And by having this extensive experience, it can greatly benefit my clients.
As a child, I was often involved in various home remodeling projects with my father. He wore a suit and tie to work, but on the weekends he enjoyed working with his hands. He taught me the basics of building. How to saw a board straight, pound nails without bending them, measure accurately, and the importance of always keeping in mind the finer points of how you want the finished project to look and function.
After my formal education, and during a warm August, I helped a nice couple purchase their first home here in West Seattle. They were excited about their house and all their future plans.
Helping that first couple clinched it for me. It gave me great satisfaction to see the buyers so happy about their new home. My wife and I (and daughters) live near the Alaska Junction in West Seattle, and love being able to walk to restaurants, or just stroll through the neighborhood.
