Proven Record of Success

Full Service Real Estate

Specializing in Resale Homes

I specialize in selling resale homes. This sets me apart from many other agents who focus on new construction.

My time and efforts are directed to meet you and your homes’ requirements.

I have been an active full time agent on the Eastside for years and am very familiar with local neighborhoods and all aspects of Eastside living.

It is not uncommon for me to have personal knowledge of the homes used as comparables in my market analysis.
