As a John L. Scott broker, my mission is to make your home buying or selling decision as easy as possible.  I work tirelessly to provide client satisfaction by doing my best to make your home buying or selling transaction as efficient, stress-free, and lucrative as possible. 


I take pride in offering high-caliber full-service residential real estate expertise. My clients are my top priority, and I focus on delivering the best possible results for them. 

When selling your home my services will include consultation on the best way to stage your home for sale, items which can be spruced up to make your home more sellable, professional photographs, and marketing; including Social Media; and market expertise.



The real estate market is hyperlocal, seasonal and temperamental—in other words, it can change on a dime. Technology has made information more accessible to everyone, but it can be difficult to keep up with recent events that affect home values. The benefits of working with a licensed real estate professional go far beyond what a mobile app, online video, or website can do.

I provide my clients with information on market seasonality and information relevant to what is happening in their specific neighborhood. This customized analysis includes recent comparable sales that factor into an offer and acceptance strategy.



In addition to providing you with market information and professional insights when pricing your home, I will share that same knowledge when reviewing offers on your home.  Sometimes the highest bid isn’t the best.  There are many considerations to consider when reviewing a buyer’s offer and I will be by your side during this negotiation period.

When buying a home I'll give you realistic information about the market for your dream home and help guide you through bidding and negotiating process.  Your thoughts should be focused on the excitement of owning a new home, not learning how to navigate the complex real estate buying process.

Successful negotiations help move a conversation forward and transform the process into an agreement that’s a win for all parties. Negotiation is not only a skill, but a mindset. I keep my clients’ best interests top of mind as I negotiate on their behalf. 


Transactional Excellence

I am dedicated to transactional excellence for every listing and sale. What this means for you is that I oversee every detail of the real estate transaction. The transaction is far from over once an offer has been accepted. I monitor inspections, appraisals, title, escrow and loan processes. Communication and collaboration with all the partners and parties involved with the transaction ensures a smooth and timely closing. I am committed to my clients before, during, and after a sale.  


As a longtime Seattle resident I am delighted to help clients buy and sell homes in the lovely Puget Sound area. Living in West Seattle I can easily enjoy the beauty of the area while walking along Alki or sitting at one of the waterfront restaurants sharing a meal with friends. I love to cook, travel short distances or far, explore out of the way communities, relax on Whidbey, spend time with my family, read, write, attend plays, watch movies, eat just about anything from Bakery Noveau, cheer on the athletes in the family (as well as our Seahawks, Sounders and Mariners) and make new friends. 


I have many years of sales and customer service experience, exceptional attention to detail and a track record of doing anything and everything possible to ensure my clients' are not just satisfied but absolutely delighted with my service to them.  


I have lived in many of Seattle's neighborhoods as well as a few on the Eastside and would be excited and honored to assist you in finding the perfect new home or the perfect buyer for yours.  I have boundless energy, an exceptional attention to detail and a dedication to not only exceeding my clients needs but also their wishes.  I value your trust and your willingness to consider me for your real estate needs. Residential Real Estate buying and selling should be rewarding, efficient and fun - let me represent you and I promise it will be that and more.
