I am a Washington native who grew up in the Kent area and moved to Seattle in 1983. I have been fortunate to live here ever since. My mom was a Realtor during much of my childhood, so I'm carrying on the family business! 

I work primarily in the Greater Seattle and Eastside areas and am quite familiar with a range of cities and neighborhoods. An agent since 1998, my annual transaction volume places me in the top 5 percent of all agents in the Northwest Multiple Listing Service (NWMLS). My years of experience provide me the knowledge and judgment my clients value, and I pride myself on delivering personal and responsive service that every client deserves.

When the real estate business calms down around the holidays, I adventure to Thailand — where my wife Muk is from — to spend time with family, soak up the sun, and eat some of the best food on the planet!

My professional style:

  • Though I am consistently one of Seattle's top-producing real estate agents, I give every client the one-on-one attention warranted for such a major life decision. 
  • Most of my business is referrals from happy clients who recommend me to their friends, neighbors, and colleagues. My clients are the reason for my success!
  • I view every client as a person, not a commission. My clients honor me with their trust, and I work hard every day to prove myself worthy of their esteem. My business ethic is defined by complete dedication to my clients and their needs.

My strengths:

  • Collaborating with my buyers to find the right home at the best price, one that fits their needs and stays within budget. I don't sell my buyers a home; I strategize with them and negotiate for them to buy one. There's a big difference!
  • Helping my sellers market their home successfully to garner a sale at the best terms. We market a home to find the buyer who most appreciates the unique features of the home and is therefore willing to pay a higher price than someone who has less appreciation for the home.
  • Ensuring clients have a real estate experience that is pleasant and productive. My job is to remove as much stress as I can.

I promise to:

  • Communicate early, often, and honestly with my clients.
  • Educate clients so they are empowered to make decisions with which they are comfortable. I'll do my best to explain the risks and benefits, positives and negatives of each situation or choice we encounter.
  • Provide personalized service, driven by my clients’ needs and preferences, not my own.
  • Anticipate likely and possible problems before they occur and to take appropriate action to prevent them from occurring.
  • Recognize that bumps in the road may occur in any transaction, and to work cheerfully, energetically, and diligently to solve them.
  • Never speak beyond the boundaries of my knowledge, and to not dismiss any concern or potential problem. If a question or situation arises that I am unfamiliar with, I don't hesitate to ask for assistance from my community of trusted colleagues and professionals. Whatever the issue, I can get answers and help from the appropriate experts!
  • Continue serving my clients, even after their sale is final. For buyers, that may entail helping with homeownership needs and maintenance. For sellers, help procuring new real estate or assisting with their next stage in life.

Whether you are a buyer or seller, or both — whether this is your first real estate transaction or one among many — I'm ready to help. Please don't hesitate to call or email me with any questions, or to arrange a time to meet and talk. I'm happy to be of assistance to you — with no hard-sell or obligation whatsoever.
