PROFESSIONAL REPRESENTATION With all the changes in the financial markets and our economy in general, professional representation has never been more critical.
My services include programs designed specifically for buyers, sellers, and investors. Relocation is a growing need in our area and I work directly with individuals and companies to accommodate timelines and needs associated with relocating from all over the world. Transition is always stressful and as my clientele will attest to, my top priority is to guide you through this process and make it as simple as possible.
Whether you are looking to relocate, buy, sell, invest, reallocate or even liquidate your real estate portfolio; I have the expertise required to assist you with achieving your goals. I look forward to assisting you in any way I can â€“ please don't hesitate to call or send me an email and I will happily answer any questions you may have.
PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE I am a graduate of Central Washington University with a Bachelor's Degree in Managerial Economics. Prior to working in the real estate industry I worked with Deloitte & TouchÃ© where I performed a variety of consultant services for Fortune 500 companies (such as Boeing, Microsoft, Nordstrom, Weyerhaeuser, etc). Going back a bit further, I also worked for Nordstrom in the Corporate Finance.
My professional certifications include being a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designee, Realtor, Accredited Buyer's Representative (ABR), Internet Marketing Specialist (IMS), and Accredited Home-Staging Specialist (AHS). I also maintain a few designations from my corporate years, including the Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) and Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA).
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! I have grown up in the Seattle area and have lived in many neighborhoods including Kirkland, Bellevue, Issaquah, Seattle, Mill Creek and Snohomish. I enjoy all the Northwest has to offer from boating on Lake Washington or in the San Juan Islands, to camping with friends, and sampling the finest our local breweries and wineries have to offer!
The housing market in the Puget Sound continues to fend off national trends and remains relatively strong. This is due, in part, to strong local employment that serves diverse industries including world class aerospace, software, retail, ecommerce, as well as the food and timber markets. This combination helps to insulate our local economy from the highs and lows that many other areas are experiencing. Additionally, the Pacific Northwest offers unparalleled natural attractions, which continue to garner national recognition.
Altogether, this creates strong demand for our region and certainly the greater Seattle area. The bottom line is that Seattle is a wonderful place to live, work and play!
