Since 2002 I've made my living helping people realize their piece of the American Dream; home ownership. Seeing the thrill on the faces of youngsters picking their bedrooms never gets old. I love this job and helping others better their lives, build wealth for their families and provide a safe and secure environment in which to live. In addition to sales, I'm also involved with residential property management. So even if folks aren't quite ready to buy, I can help them find a rental home and provide the necessary counseling to those wanting to become homeowners in the future. In my 'spare time' I'm also active in my local and state Realtor associations, and was the 2013 Tri-City Association of Realtors President. Having been born and raised right here in Kennewick, I've watched our community grow and prosper from 3 small towns to a major metropolitan area of over a quarter million people. Through all of this, the Tri-Cities has kept it's small-town roots. We have big hearts and help, where and when it's needed. I believe in these same values. That's why a portion of my commissions go to local charitable organizations such as United Way, The Chaplaincy hospice and grief counseling, as well as helping local homeless and low-income families in need with housing assistance. It's important to be a part of a community, not just live in one. The Tri-Cities is a great place to call home. We have a strong and vibrant economy, fantastic weather with over 300 days of sunshine, recreation everywhere, and the best transportation system and commute times in the northwest. I tell people every day it's the greatest place in the world to live, and I look forward to helping find the right home for you.
