"You never get a second chance to make a first impression".
In March of 2000, my wife and I bid farewell to Atlanta, Georgia. Oregon had been beckoning us for more than two years after a back packing trip that brought us to the Pacific Northwest and changed our lives and perspectives. We've been like two kids in a candy shop with all the outdoor activities the Northwest has to offer. We love to hike, camp, ski, and snow shoe together. In January 2001, we bought our first home in the Mount Tabor neighborhood and in December 2003, we had our first child, Macy. Our son, Levi, was born in April of 2007. Children are definitely the best adventure we've embarked on yet!
I earned a BBA in Marketing and Professional Sales, which I put to good use working for a Fortune 400 company as an outside Sales Rep. Out of 1,200 reps nationally, I was ranked in the top 10% of all producers. I was ranked 5th in my zone and was the top sales person on my team for 3 years running. No matter how well I did, it wasn't enough for me. The missing ingredient was true passion. As an active investor, real estate had been calling my name for quite some time, so with the support of family and friends I took the leap and haven't looked back since.
Life is good.
I am passionate about what I do and where I live. Portland is a vibrant community that I am proud to call home-- I would be honored to have the opportunity to help find your perfect home.
Service that pays (with interest) -
For my seller clients, I differentiate my real estate services by incorporating the pre-listing talents of Inside Design. Your home is a personal environment and a reflection of who you are, but when you decide to sell, an objective professional eye helps you create a desirable product for a marketing campaign. Inside Design makes interior and exterior re-styling recommendations that will have wide appeal using things already in your home. Is your home empty? No problem, we do vignette staging that will focus on key areas for a great first impression.
Staging properties prior to presenting them to potential buyers has been proven to speed up the closing process and also increase the seller's asking price. All of my clients will enjoy this value added full-service solution to market their home.
For my buyer clients, I provide a professional architectural/ interior design consultation to help visualize the possibilities of customizing their new home to better suit their needs.
