Taking the stress out of buying and selling real estate.
Growing up in small town in a West Virginia was a wonderful experience and it is where I learned the core values in life such as honesty, integrity, hard work and the importance of family and friends. After high school I was hired by USAirways and that opened up an entire new world. I have lived in several major cities along the east coast and finally settled in Tampa, Florida. During my time in Florida I became a licensed Realtor and worked for GMAC Real Estate in St Petersburg, Florida.
I loved working for the airline and being a Realtor but eventually realized I wanted to return to a slower pace and had always wanted to live on the west coast. A friend recommended we check out Bend, so my wife and I came for a vacation and fell in love with Central Oregon and the hospitality of everyone we met. We promptly quit our jobs and made the move!
After moving to Bend we became co-owners of a kitchen remodeling franchise. I did kitchen design and also helped with the installation. We always received high praise for our expertise in design, installation, and the overall customer experience often lacking in that industry. We have made many lifelong friends that were former clients. As much as I enjoyed what I was doing I still felt a career in real estate was calling. What better way to combine my customer service skills with my love of Bend? Now I get to spend time showing people around this great area and all it has to offer.
After living here 10 years, I am familiar with all the neighborhoods inside-out and have the ability to assist you in selecting the best one for your needs. If you are selling your home, I also use the newest internet marketing tools to depict your property to the broadest possible range of qualified buyers. Your home will also be featured in various local print publications.
As your Realtor, I’m committed to providing the best possible service, keeping your informed at every step, and helping you to make sound choices. Through hard work, continuing education, and a thorough knowledge of the local market I can assist you in finding the perfect home or investment property.
When not working you can find me on one of the many beautiful trails or lakes around Central Oregon. I have a passion for rescuing animals and currently share my home with two rescues. Penny (the dog) and Cooper (the cat) who was named after “DB Cooper” the infamous Northwest Airlines hijacker that parachuted out of an airplane over Oregon.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you with your real estate needs.
