 Whether you're a buyer or a seller, for a short period of time, you invite us to become part of your life, and for that reason, we think it's important for you to know a bit about us. 
 
We have been a REALTOR® team since 1992, combining our broad experience to provide you with the advice you need to make smart real estate decisions!  You benefit from two perspectives and double the service! For us, being REALTORS® means so much more than showing property or getting paperwork
completed. Our job is matching you with your dreams. We'll treat your interests and concerns as if they were our own. You'll receive the same quality of service that we'd want to receive. We're ready to go to work as your trusted agents to help find your dream home or find the perfect business opportunity. What a great job we have! It's both rewarding and meaningful.
 
 
My Professional Life:
I'm an Accredited Buyers Representative (ABR), a Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES) and I specialize in commercial real estate as well. I have enjoyed being a licensed Real Estate Broker since 1991 and find rewarding the many relationships my work allows me to develop. I've held the post of President of the Port Angeles Association of REALTORS® for two consecutive years 1996 and 1997 and held several board leadership positions from 1994 through 2004. I was selected as REALTOR® of the Year 1996, received the REALTOR® Achievement Award in1994, the 1995 Political Action Award, the 2002 Community Service Award and the President's Award in 2006. I consider real estate an important issue and like to take time to educate and represent Clallam County citizens on real estate issues. From 1996 through 1997, I enjoyed a stint as a local KONP Radio 1450 radio Talk Show personality chatting about real estate issues and subsequently two other public service real estate segments running throughout the day over a three-year period specifically. In 2000, I was appointed by the Governor as Real Estate Commissioner for Washington State Department of Licensing, a post I filled until August 2006.

Just For Fun:
I've always believed that we are so much more than the job we do. My love -- outside of real estate -- is aviation! I have my own plane and can tell you from personal experience that the Olympics are even more exquisite when viewed from above!  My enjoyment of flying has lead to several volunteer opportunities including: 
  • Northwest Experimental Aircraft Association Arlington Fly-in management team and past Board member, Summer 1998 to 2009. Year round planning, layout and one week full time over July 4th week every year in Arlington, WA.
  • Area Coordinator for the "Wings of Freedom" visit of the B-17 and B-24 WWII Bombers for public viewing andrides, 2004 and 2005.
