I help buyers find their dream home in Jefferson County as a Broker and REALTOR with Windermere, Port Townsend. Since 2007, I have been actively involved in Pacific Northwest real estate as both broker and developer. After many years exploring the Olympic Peninsula, my wife, and two daughters, and I decided to make Jefferson County our home. I will put my years of experience living in Port Townsend, Irondale, and Chimacum to your advantage and I am dedicated to making your real estate experience rewarding all the way to closing.
Professionally, I have been working on real estate since 2007. My first job was managing development projects for Seattle Public Utilities. During that time I had the great opportunity to work on hundreds of real estate projects ranging from Built Green residential construction to the creation of the first commercial Living Building in the world at the Bullitt Foundation. I truly enjoyed the challenge of increasing the quality of life in our neighborhoods while we added jobs and parks.
Personally, I have been lucky to have been involved in the real estate process as a buyer, seller, and broker. Our family currently owns and lives on 20 acres just outside Port Townsend. Previously, we bought and sold a 1906 Farmhouse in Fremont, Seattle. During the past decade, I have been part of projects to build 6 different buildings doing everything from framing to roofing all the way to deconstruction and reuse of salvaged materials. Today, in my spare time, you can find me logging, milling, building, or digging a trench on the mini-excavator.

Our Port Townsend discovery story is one of good fortune and good friends. After years of traveling and exploring the Olympic Peninsula, we decided we would move to Port Townsend and found a rental at Finnriver. It turned out to be a great experience and we were able to meet the founders of the farm and cidery, who were welcoming beyond belief.
Over the course of the next year, we moved to Irondale, where we shared property with good friends just a few blocks from Irondale beach. Finally, we settled on a 20-acre property just outside Port Townsend off the Larry Scott Trail.
Our children have attended many of the great schools in Port Townsend including Salish Coast Elementary, the Swan School, and the Ocean homeschool program.
Here is a list of community organizations we currently support:
Housing Solutions Network.
Jefferson Land Trust.
