I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for the past 41 years and have extensive experience in sales, marketing, and real estate. My first exposure to the real estate business came as a high school student, working part time at a title and escrow company beginning in 1979. In 1991, I became licensed as a real estate agent and started my real estate career at Douglas T. Gray and associates in Bellingham, Washington. In the ensuing years, I have been involved in real estate investments, owned/managed my own vacation rental business, and worked full-time in the real estate business with a focus on providing the highest level of service to all my clients. In 2013, with our son off at college, my wife and I decided to follow our dream of relocating to the Anacortes area. My wife, a 16 year employee at the Port of Anacortes, had been commuting to Anacortes for nearly 13 years and it was time to finally make Anacortes our home town. We love all that the area has to offer, with all its surrounding beauty and extra days of sunshine.
