Selling Your Home For Top Dollar!

In today's complex and rapidly changing real estate market, you owe it to yourself to work with a full service real estate professional. Anyone can sell a home, but selling a home for top dollar takes strategic thinking and a strong grasp of the latest marketing techniques. I’ll work with you to highlight the best qualities of your home to as many potential buyers as possible, thus yielding strong offers, and quickly. A bachelor’s degree in marketing combined with diverse experience in sales and business development allows me to bring “outside the box” thinking to the marketing of my clients’ homes. I bring a consultative approach, strategic marketing expertise, and exceptional negotiating skills to the practice of real estate. There is more to selling a house than putting a sign in the yard and an ad in the paper. An effective marketing strategy for your home is one that combines proven marketing principles with the latest technology to get results, and get them quickly!

Why Work With Me To Buy Your Next Home?

I Listen! Listening is the first, and among the most important things I do for clients. I strive to gain understanding of your desires and needs. Once everyone is on the same page, the house hunting becomes a pleasure. My knowledge of the local housing market and ability to recognize new trends gives my clients an edge in the marketplace. I’ll work with you to narrow down the many available houses to the ones that are the best possible fit for you and your family. Once we find that perfect house, my real work begins. I take every negotiation as a challenge to create the absolute best outcome for my clients within the boundaries of good ethics. I’m meticulous about details (just ask my wife) and my diligent follow-through will keep the transaction on track and help us dodge any potential pitfalls during escrow. Purchasing a home is a huge decision — to get through it you want someone who listens and understands your needs, keeps your stress to a minimum, and negotiates extremely well on your behalf.

Dedication to My Community

I grew up in Oregon, and am happy to have made Portland my home. Neighborhoods I have lived in over the years include Tualatin, Tigard, Newberg, Hillsboro, Garden Home, Lents, Sellwood, Mt. Tabor, and presently Eastmoreland. I am grateful to have such an intimate connection to so many communities in the area. I feel it truly is a service to my clients, and allows me to help them identify the neighborhood that is right for them.

I love Portland and it's important to me to give back to a community that has given me so much. I have served on philanthropic boards and volunteered for many service projects over the years. Some of my current activities include:

  • Board Member and Past-President of Tau Chapter of TKE Board of Advisors since 2000.
  • Rotarian and Past-President – Central East Portland Rotary since 1998. Paul Harris Fellow.
  • Coach and sponsor of youth soccer, futsal, and baseball.
