I am a hardworking and enthusiastic guy originally from New York. My father is a contractor and I worked alongside him for much of my youth, learning the trade of building homes. This early experience has proved invaluable in my work as a Real Estate Agent, giving me a thorough understanding of what is entailed when remodeling, repairing, estimating, building, and maintaining a home. As a young man I was drawn to the beautiful Pacific Northwest by the exciting and challenging work of commercial fishing. While working as a fisherman I began to invest my earnings in fixer-upper homes and apartment buildings and found myself intrigued by the possibilities of a livelihood involving Real Estate.  After 12 years of Commercial Fishing and 4 Years as a Captain, I decided to make my move into Real Estate.  Although commercial fishing was a very different career path I have found that it prepared me well for my career as a Real Estate Broker. Both lines of work require a lot of hard work, honesty, communication, and creative thinking. On top of these skills I work consistently at staying on top of emerging industry trends and marketing tools. I believe that to be successful these days it is critical to have a solid grasp of the technologies that today's buyers and sellers are using. I am also extremely diligent in my market research, staying up to the minute on the latest in pricing and availability in our area.

As an experienced Realtor and investor I love my work and in today's market the demand for the very best representation is essential.  My number one priority is to represent your best interest.  Period!  I listen to your needs and desires with an open mind and then come up with a game plan.  I am very thorough in my research, due diligence, solid negotiations, attention to contract detail and professional communications. I feel it is vital to keep you informed along the way whether you live here on the island already or clear across the country.  I have sound morals, believe everyone deserves respect, and I take great pride in all of my work.   I live and work on Bainbridge Island where I share a home and life with my wonderful wife, our darling daughter, one feisty Cairn Terrier, and a sassy, fluffy old kitty cat!

    Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $425K in Bainbridge Island, WA.
    It was a pleasure having Mercury as our agent. During a long negotiation process he managed to address all our concerns. He exceeded all our expectation and provided us with candid comments about all the benefits and opportunities of the property we bought. Our case got complicated due to the type of loan we were applying for, but mercury was the perfect liaison between all the stakeholders: house owner, lender, and last but not least my family. We are very thankful he worked for us and we are getting ready to continue businesses with his team again. Jose and Mercedes  MoreLess

    Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Bainbridge Island, WA.
    Mercury is so good at what he does that it makes me wish we did more real estate transactions more often just so we could work with him.

    We had the opportunity to meet Mercury when we first started looking to buy on Bainbridge and he showed us a place that he had listed. It wasn't the one we ended up choosing but he made a memorable impression because he was so knowledgeable about the island and so kind and generous with his time. He felt like a friend right away.

    Over the years that we've lived on Bainbridge Island, we've realized that Mercury is as authentic as they come. He really is embedded in the community here and his generosity and commitment are consistent and inspiring.

    We didn't hesitate to hire Mercury when it was time to sell our condo and he made a process that we were dreading seem almost fun. His confidence, honesty, professionalism, and experience guided us through the process in record time and with an outcome beyond our expectations. He helped us find the perfect buyer in only a few weeks in a challenging market and he closed the deal seamlessly with a combination of diplomacy and steadfastness.

    If you have the chance to work with Mercury, I have no doubt that your review will be just as glowing.

    “Mercury is a magnet for success and it is in the way he knows so well what he is doing and loves what he is doing...with a keen sharp mind, caring open heart space and a tremendous depth of industry knowledge and experience, couple that with his impeccable work ethic and his authentic labor of love...it's a recipe for success every time! One senses that with Mercury. He has the recipe, knows what to do with it and he wants to cook it up! ...he see's it all half full and so it is. He attracts great people, great homes, great business and that makes his work greatness! And greatness sells, period.”  MoreLess
