I am a real estate professional with Keller Williams Realty in Gig Harbor, WA. Gig Harbor is a small waterfront village about 45 miles south of Seattle. We are known for our beautiful scenery.
I have been with Keller Williams Realty since 2003. I chose Keller Williams based upon their stated beliefs and priorities. In August of 2008, I became an associate broker at our office. Two years later I was the managing broker and minority owner of our market center. I began blogging about Gig Harbor in October of 2007. My love of photography, writing, and my community have made blogging about the community a natural fit.
Gig Harbor is one of the most picturesque places I've ever been, and it is a wonderful community in which to live. I work primarily in resale properties, and am surrounded by a team of agents specializing in land, new construction, and condo sales. My clients agree that working with me and my team of professionals is a pleasant, full service, real estate experience.
I moved to the Puget Sound region in the fall of 1997. I spent seven years as a teacher and a coach at Life Christian Academy in Tacoma. Although I enjoyed my time in the education field, I felt that it wasn't where I wanted to settle in, so in the spring of 2003, I followed in the footsteps of my father and my grandfather and began my real estate business.
My wife, Kimber, and I moved from Tacoma to Gig Harbor in 2003, where we enjoy the lifestyle that is offered here. We can often be found walking our dog, Sebastian, along the waterfront, or enjoying the water in our kayaks.
Kimber taught 5th grade at Lighthouse Christian School in Gig Harbor, a profession she truly loved. With the birth of our first child, Kimber is now a full time mom. We have found Gig Harbor to be a perfect fit for our lives. I'd love to introduce you to our town!

I have quickly become recognized as one of Gig Harbor's top agents for utilizing the internet and new technology. My online presence means greater online exposure for my sellers, and easy acess to the information that my buyers desire. I have worked extensively with military clients, first time home buyers, investors, and relocating families. I work primarily in resale properties, and am surrounded by professionals who service land, new construction, and condo sales.
