Background: I have lived in the SE Portland area since 1969 and know the area well. I entered real estate in 1984 and started my own company in 1988. I have been active in management and sales as well as investment and development. You can put that experience to work for you today. Training: Less than 3% of Realtors nationwide hold the Certified Residential Specialist designation. Even fewer hold the Certified Residential Broker designation. I have held both since 1994.

As broker and owner I have trained dozens of new salespeople to be successful by helping their clients achieve their dreams. You can put that experience to work for you today.
