My Story

Experience:

Experience in the marketplace is crucial to properly market your property. This experience comes through knowledge of the local market through working in the market. Since I moved to the Tri-Cities 16 years ago I have been an investment property owner for 12 years, been in Real Estate as an Agent/Broker for 7 years and 3 years as a General Contractor remodeling uninhabitable homes and restoring and reselling them. Let my experience in the Tri-Cities market help you in your quest to sell your home or purchase your next home whether it be for investment or for your next abode.

Community Involvement:

I have been involved in our community since we have moved. I have coached football for 12 years, Track (Hurdles) for three years, and have been a track official for a number of years at Richland HS for Districts/Regionals/and Twilight meets. Currently I am on the board at You Medical, a local Crisis Pregnancy center with offices in Pasco and Kennewick as well as a mobile medical clinic. I have served on the Benton County Truancy Board for 3 years and on the Interscholastic Materials Committee for the Richland School District for the past 5 years. I have also served as a lay minister in my local church, been involved in missions programs, led church small groups and remain active in the Christian Community. I have been a participant in Sharefest, a community service project of the Tri Cities churches, served on the Boat Race Weekend with Lamb Weston, and the past four years with Windermere Real Estate’s community day project. I love serving, love kids, love sports, and helping those less fortunate earn opportunity to succeed!

Past Life:

Prior to my tenure in the Tri-Cities my wife, two boys and I served in Brazil as full time Missionaries for 7 years. I served as pastor and was the Missions Coordinator for New Church Plants in Brazil where we started 12 churches and trained pastors for ministry. I worked with 2 Orphanages, helping to establish an integration program where the young adults could transition from the orphanage to adult life once they turned 18 and could no longer be a part of the orphanage home. We helped these young adults enter University, find a job, and locate housing. I also served on the board of the second orphanage for 4 years in various capacities.

My Family:

My wife and I have two boys. Our first was born 3 months premature, weighing only 1 lb 12 oz at birth. He came home on his due date and to date has now graduated High School, bought his own home, married and busy with his life and Army Carreer. Our youngest graduated this past year from George Fox university in Engineering and is working as a Nuclear Fluids Dynamics Engineer in Oregon. My wife has been a nurse at Kadlec Regional Medical Center for 15 years.
