I was born and raised in Bremerton and spent many summers in Mason County enjoying Hood Canal, hiking the Olympics and boating on South Puget Sound. I have experienced living in California, Oregon and the East Coast but nothing compares to living and working in Mason County - it is like no other place on earth. The communities of Allyn, Belfair, Grapeview, Victor and Tahuya are friendly, semi-rural communities. My home is in LakeLand Village a lovely development in the small seaside village of Allyn. LakeLand Village is just flat out beautiful - 27 holes of golf, private lake and gorgeous homes. By the way, we do a lot of business there. Another great advantage to living here is the close proximity to the Puget Sound metropolitan cities of Seattle, Tacoma and Olympia. If you want to live and work in a stress free world, do yourself a favor and check this place out.

The Hood Canal is our LOCATION of choice. It is one of the most beautiful bodies of water in the Pacific Northwest. How fortunate we are to live here. We’ve called The NORTHSHORE of Hood Canal our home for 20+ years now. Growing up as Seattle natives allowed us as kids to frequent the Olympic Peninsula and all it has to offer. My wife, Buff and I have been best friends since Jr. High and have now been married for over 43 years. We have raised our two sons with pride and now with their wives and their children, we couldn't ask for more.
In the past, my advertising business allowed me to flourish in the art of negotiations. This was a natural stepping stone into Real Estate. I have been a Broker with Windermere Peninsula Properties for nearly 15 years and have been quite successful. Buff had assisted me in past transactions which has led her to this next venture of our lives (Real Estate Partners), as she has completed her Real Estate Studies and is now licensed. Partners in life and partners in business.
While Hood Canal holds a special place in our hearts, our town and surrounding areas do as well. The relationships with our clients are lasting and the feeling of providing them with outstanding service in selling or finding just that "perfect" property is very rewarding!!

Modern rural brokers must know what their urban counterparts know and be sophisticated enough to leverage digital advertising and create custom single-property websites with professional content. With links and hashtags, blogs and posts and a targeted demographic, measurably better results just require a more refined marketing approach. I am that broker.
I’m unique to Mason County. My educational foundations, advertising & marketing training, 25 years computer business experience and over a decade listing Mason County residential and vacation homes offers a combination of related experience rare outside Seattle/Bellevue.
I am also dedication to traditional Realtor values. Listening, knowing the area, having the skills to negotiate, practicing our state’s real estate laws and acting solely in the interest of my client – they are all essential to how I do business. I built my real estate career upon the successes of my clients, their plans and their outcomes so my clients know me as “their Mason County broker”.
Safety is important these days. To talk, we don't have to leave your homes. We can meet face-to-face with Zoom Video conferencing. The app is free (download here) and is pretty easy to use. Just schedule a time to meet.
