I was born in Southern California and before I made too many memories, we relocated to Medford Oregon. I spent much of my childhood traveling with my dad to the Seattle area visiting family and fell in love with the area, unaware that I would eventually call this area HOME!
I attended North Medford High School and graduated in 1992, then tried my hand at college a few times before realizing I was done with my academic career. I then moved around a lot, trying new places and new things and becoming a full fledged car junky! Since turning 16 I’ve owned over 30 vehicles of all different kinds!
In late 1995 my dad and I came up to Lynnwood to visit family, and my Aunt and Uncle made me an offer to stay in Lynnwood and try out this area, so I asked Eagle Hardware for a transfer and in early 1996 I made the move. Little did I know that in 3 short years I’d introduce myself to my wife!
Theresa and I met in 1999 and in 2001 we were married and have two awesome kids! Sadie is a Portland State University graduate living in Seattle and Theo is attending Penn State University studying Forensic Science. We’re now adjusting to life as “empty nesters”!
As a family, we love outdoors and traveling. You can often find us on hiking trails throughout the beautiful PNW and exploring our National Parks. We even have a map that we pin the National Park we’ve recently visited. We did a long road trip where we toured 5 National Parks and look forward to exploring more. Theresa and I try to make a few trips a year out of state to visit and explore either our favorite places and try new ones as well. Maui is definitely our favorite place for relaxing and Las Vegas for non relaxing. I’d love to know one of your favorite places to visit!
Professionally, I spent 10 years in Commercial Construction Management where I learned contract negotiation, quality control auditing, and the importance of timelines. When the economy busted in 2009, I obtained my Real Estate license. After initially struggling in real estate, I then spent nearly 10 years in Commercial Pest Control, where I worked my way into management. This allowed me to further build my contract negotiation skills, and learn the importance of building relationships and building rapport with those I am in negotiations. When Theresa joined her dad, Duane, in the running of Century 21 Real Estate Center it just made sense for me to renew my real estate license. In 2017 I was licensed while still working in pest management until 2018, when I began helping people buy and sell homes full time.
Since starting back in real estate, I am an annual award winner in both Quality Service and Masters Award based on production.
I’ll leave you with one last thing…my passion for people and my love of this area make real estate fun for me. I’ll do whatever I can to make it fun for you too!
