More About Me

Your Local Real Estate Advisor

When you are looking for your next or first home, it is nice to have an experienced and reliable Broker helping you; saving you time and money; keeping you focused on what is important to you!
When you are selling your home it is nice to have a proven and trusted advisor looking out for your best interest, and helping you navigate through the potential liabilities.
I am that experienced, proven, reliable and trusted advisor that is ready to meet you where you are and get you where you want to be.

Experienced Project Leader

I lead a three person management team which, with the assistance of a 15 person sales force, managed to take a languishing downtown condominium project that had been on the market, inactive, for over a year, and within just two months had 5 units under contract and at the end of the first year, another 6 units had closed. If you have a difficult property and are looking for a cutting edge marketing attention getter, I am that person, with a proven track record of success in selling the "lifestyle".

Involved in the Local Community

In addition to ongoing support for the Windermere Foundation, I have been active in the local chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation since 1999, participating in various charity fund raisers. I volunteer 8 hours a month assisting with the facilitation of a financial planning/education series at my church and together with my wife, we deliver fresh baked bread to first time visitors and guest to Salem Alliance Church. Most recently I have been a volunteer tour guide, giving visitors to the Oregon State Capital guided tours including the pinnacle of visiting the golden pioneer!

Personal

I grew up on a dairy in Central California where I learned the farmers work ethic. After serving 18 years, I retired from the US Coast Guard in 1996. There I learned to put others first and how to finish a job, no matter how long or how far away from home that job may have been. I have retained their motto, Semper Paratus, which means Always Ready. In 2003 I completed my BS degree in Business Management from University of Phoenix. An educational journey that I began in North Bend Oregon in 1986 was finally complete. My wife and I make our home in West Salem where we raised 5 children.
