I began my real estate career in 2003 after a 20+ year career in commercial banking, financial planning, and management consulting. My last banking position brought us to Florence in 2000, and my wife Karen and I fell in love with the community. The natural beauty, mild climate, extraordinary people, and proximity to Eugene and I-5, make Florence a wonderful place to call home. We quickly settled into the community and I had the privilege of serving on the boards of the Home Builders Association, the Florence Area Chamber of Commerce, and the Central Oregon Coast Board of Realtors. I was honored to be named Realtor of the Year in 2012 and 2016. I currently serve as state director of the Oregon Association of Realtors.
To better serve my clients, I earned the the professional designations Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Graduate, REALTOR® Institute (GRI), Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR), Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES), and e-PRO Internet Professional.
As a full time real estate professional, my commitment to you is to give you the very best service I know how. My proven negotiating skills, investment in technology, continuing professional education, and community service, supports my efforts to provide a high level of customer service, satisfaction and your success as a buyer or seller. A significant part of the service equation is based on my thorough understanding of the Florence community and your unique lifestyle needs. If your dream is to live on the Oregon coast, or if you are planning to leave our beautiful part of the world, it would be my pleasure to talk with you.
My wife Karen and I enjoy Florence's live music and theater, and fine restaurants. We enjoy exploring the hiking trails and paddling the lakes and rivers in the Florence area. When time allows, we also enjoy traveling the backroads of Oregon on our Harley Davidson Road King. You may even see me strumming my ukulele around town as a member of the Florence Ukelele Club, better known as the "Flukes."
Throughout my professional life, I have worked with individuals and organizations to solve problems, identify opportunities, and achieve goals. Let me put my experience to work for you.
Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about me. If my skills and enthusiasm seem to be a good match for your needs, let's talk.
