More About Me

About Me

For those who are interested, here’s a quick bio. I have lived in the Spokane-Coeur d’Alene region since 1990 when my wife and I moved here from “back east” to raise our family in a place of our choosing. Sure, we left to escape the rat race of the New York metro, but we came here for all the things we’ve grown to love about this truly special place – The Great Outdoors; the short commutes; genuine four-season weather with near flawless summers; the wide open spaces; the safe, friendly neighborhoods; excellent schools and all-around healthy living. To us it has become an ideal environment to raise our three wonderful daughters. The region’s popular promotional motto is surprisingly fitting: Spokane. Near Nature. Near Perfect. We couldn’t agree more.

As a family we enjoy much of what the area has to offer including mountain and road biking, children’s and community theater, skiing/snowboarding, fishing, exploring the region’s remote escapes and hot springs, hiking, going to our favorite spots on the lake in the summer and being involved in the community.

I am an attorney in Washington as well as a real estate agent in Washington and Idaho. I have owned or operated several small businesses and have worked in corporate finance, law and construction. My wife is a marketing executive with a regional engineering and construction company. We both work at offices only a short commute from home.

Whether by referral or other form of introduction, those who choose to work with me will discover that I am dedicated, intelligent and hard-working. You will get an experienced negotiator, skillful marketer and excellent communicator, whose integrity, optimism and diligence will earn your respect. You will also receive the service and results you want, whether you are buying, selling, a homeowner, an investor, or just need the friendly input of a knowledgeable real estate professional.

Questions abound when you begin your search and they continue throughout this process. Are you looking for a newly constructed home in one of the many beautiful brand-new subdivisions in our region? Or maybe you’re in search of that classic vintage home in an established historic neighborhood? Perhaps you are looking for a rental investment? A condominium or townhome? A lake property? A building lot or land? Whatever your interests – downsizing, upgrading, shopping specific school districts or area wide, whatever your needs, I have the knowledge, work ethic, patience and energy to successfully help you complete the entire real estate transaction process thoroughly, professionally and to your utmost satisfaction.

I am proud to be affiliated with a market leader in Washington and Northern Idaho real estate. You will receive – and should expect – nothing but the best from the great people at Windermere Real Estate. We at Windermere Valley and Windermere Coeur d’Alene Realty are happy to help you with any and all of your real estate questions or needs.
