Current Designations and Certifications:

"Foreclosure Alternatives Consultant"
I retired in 1998 from a 30 year career in Federal Law Enforcement involving, among other duties, the investigation of fraud, waste and abuse against the Government. That experience included involvement in the acquisition, renovation and/or restoration of major government owned facilities. I discovered my background is a perfect fit for a second career representing buyers and sellers of real estate and protecting everyone's interests.
Immediately upon retiring, I became licensed as a real estate salesperson in the State of Washington. Because of my wide circle of friends, colleagues, and sphere of influence my real estate business began to flourish. While I hold a BA in Business Administration, my commitment to ongoing education and to providing the best in client service is evidenced by obtaining my Managing Broker's license in 2005, and to my continuing education as stated herein.
Why Work With Me?
My extensive investigative background and now my 19 years selling real estate is the perfect fit to represent buyers and sellers of real estate. I am a compassionate person with empathy for those homeowners who are facing distressing times and need an experienced Broker to help find an alternative to foreclosure. And this experience is very helpful representing buyers who are looking to purchase in a distressed market.
The Puget Sound is simply spectacular and a wonderful place to live. I know, my wife and I have lived here for 44 years! And we spent over 20 years backpacking in the Spectacular North Cascades and the Alpine Lakes Wilderness, a major benefit contributing to our quality of life here.
