Real Estate is something I was born in to—second generation. I’ve embraced it as my full-time and lifetime career choice. For over 17 years I’ve endeavored to grow as a person and as a Realtor, providing the absolute best service possible. My style is positive and energetic, showing up as a cheerful and aggressive advocate for your needs.
As both a broker & owner of the John L Scott Real Estate in Bellingham, I am passionate about the Real Estate industry and work to Live Life as a Contribution. I work with my Real Estate clients to help get them from where they are, to where they want to be with personal service (I don’t have a team so we work directly). As an owner of our Bellingham franchise, I also am working to raise the bar for our profession by doing everything possible to have John L. Scott Real Estate brokers add more value to their clients.
I am married to Andrea, and have a daughter Riley and son Liam. In my free time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, reading non-fiction, and sports. I like to golf and fish, and love watching (or playing) football, basketball, soccer and baseball. I am a huge Seahawk and Husky fan!
