I came to Real Estate after more than 25 years in the Corporate World. That career gave me the intense experience of learning and adapting to the staff and differing needs of Ten different US markets, and that of 3 foreign Countries. I have had the opportunity to lead tremendous Sales, Sales Support & Manufacturing teams as a Vice President or Managing Director during the greatest part of that career tenure. From that background, I bring an unwavering commitment to getting the job done right, while always remaining sensitive to the real needs of the individual or individuals I am working with and on behalf of. I chose this career as a way to Make A Difference on a personal level.
I have personally been either a Buyer or Seller in 23 Real Estate Transactions...needless to say, my education first as a consumer working with a broad swath of Real Estate professionals has been invaluable to me. During my many career relocation's, I became a student of location investing, and home remodeling. When it came time for a career change, no options were in any way as inspiring as having the opportunity to actually be paid for what had already become a driving passion in my life! In preparation for this new career, I attended the Rockwell Institute, one of the most highly accredited Real Estate Schools on the West Coast. In 2004, I chose to be a part of Windermere, and most importantly the Capitol Hill Brokerage, because of my deep respect for that organizations' integrity and high expectations of their licensed agents. In my first two years as a Broker, I helped clients with more than 24 transactions, and was among the highest producers in my office...None of which I was striving for; it was in my mind, simply a matter of connecting with and meeting the needs of the right people, for which I am truly grateful. Moving forward to 2015, I've remained in the top 10% of Brokers in Seattle, averaging more than 20 transactions per year.
