About Me

Experience

As an agent who’s an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It’s not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter – not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

Sell a Home
When it’s time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don’t visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience – which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that’s sold fast.

About Me
I am a Certified REO Property Specialist and Certified Short Sale Specialist, both areas in which I have extensive experience. I have been working in real estate for many years, learning from some of the best agents and teams in the area. In that time I’ve picked up all the real estate knowledge necessary to succeed in the industry, however it’s my wide-ranging and comprehensive earlier skills and experience that will allow me to be one of the area’s best agents.

With 14 years of experience in the legal profession, spending most of that time managing a law office, there is hardly a legal issue that can arise during the buying or selling of a property that I have not encountered. After leaving the law office, I added entrepreneurship and digital acumen to my skill set, acting as president and CEO of a computer consulting start-up. It was there that I saw my calling in real estate, and have been working in real estate ever since.

In addition to those professional accomplishments, I have been very involved in local government and improving the community for the last 9 years. Serving as Chair of the City of West Linn Planning Commission, adviser to the City’s Sustainability Commission, and a member of the Infill and Planned Unit Development Task Force.  I am also on the Board of Directors for the non-profit company Youth Building Green and Vice-Chair of the Oregon Young Professionals Network.  When not working on real estate, for the city, or as a volunteer, I love spending time with my family.

Now that you know a little about me, I look forward to helping you with all your real estate needs!
