Over the years I have learned that there is nothing more important to achieving and maintaining success than the character level of the people you surround yourself with, and the standards you consistently hold yourself to. As a realtor, I feel that my number one job is to have your best interest at heart and to earn your trust by always being straightforward, accessible, responsive, and professional. I strongly believe in taking the necessary time to get to know my clients as individuals in order to fully grasp their personal tastes as well as their specific goals. This allows me to develop custom-tailored solutions for my clients focused on producing optimal results in a timely manner.
I have a genuine understanding of the emotional ties that buyers and sellers can have for a particular property. These emotional ties are a big part of what makes me love, and feel so passionate about, real estate; there is nothing more fulfilling than that moment in which you introduce your client to the specific property they have been envisioning themselves in, or when you secure on your client's behalf an offer for their home that they are so grateful to have received.
Prior to starting my real estate career (first in San Francisco and now here in Seattle) I had a successful 15 year career in Commercial Insurance Brokerage in New York City where I dealt directly with the CEOs and CFOs of many prominent companies in order to successfully manage their business’ Property and Liability Insurance programs. Given the nature, and location, of this prior experience, I am accustomed to a fast-paced, high intensity environment, and I developed the strong relationship, negotiation and marketing skills I now utilize as a realtor. I am a polished professional that is 100% customer service oriented, meticulous when it comes to the details, and am keenly aware as to the importance of managing a client's expectations and doing all you can to avoid any surprises.
I presently reside on Mercer Island with my beautiful wife Holly (a top Human Resources Executive at Starbucks) and our adorable son Barrett. I believe what makes the Seattle area so uniquely special is that it provides all the amenities and conveniences of a big city, yet still retains a sense of peacefulness, community and charm through its beautiful open spaces, lush landscape, established neighborhoods, and extensive waterfront.
