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 two darling daughters, one feisty Cairn Terrier, and a sassy, fluffy old kitty cat!

Team reviews

Working with Mercury was the best decision our family made when we decided to move to Bainbridge Island. As our agent, he took the time to listen to what was important to us first, then worked with us every step of the way to ensure that we found exactly what we were looking for in a home. His expertise of the market and attention to detail was paramount in negotiating and closing the deal. We found the home we were looking for and could not have done it without him. There is not enough positive things I can say about our experience working with Mercury. He is very professional, responsive, and knowledgeable, but more importantly Mercury is a great person. Success starts with a great relationship with an agent you can trust. If my family has real estate needs in the future, we will be working with him again, no question. Mercury is the real deal.

Sold a home in 2015.

We recently sold a house with Mercury on Bainbridge Island and could not have been happier with the service he provided us. He walked us through every step of the process and answered all of our questions along the way. He is incredibly knowledable and an extremely hard worker - he took the extra time and effort to get a great price for our house. We could not recommend Mercury more highly.  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $575K in Bainbridge Island, WA.

I have worked with Mercury twice, once as a buyer, and once as a seller. Both times have been great. He is responsive, honest, hard-working, and full of positive energy. He helped us find the perfect home for us, a really unique, special spot, that fit our individual dream. And, then, when we were ready to sell, he helped us sell our very unique place. I personally like his enthusiasm and his willingness to listen along the way. He has a lot of experience and knowledge and is very trustworthy.  More Less
