Currently Owner and Broker of Sound Realty. Formerly of Excel Properties in Green Lake, Seattle Washington which is now a John L. Scott Office. Formerly a Windermere Agent since 1989. Founder of Easy Street Records in Seattle but am no longer officially associated with the remainng Easy Street Record Stores. Managed Heavy Metal /Hard Rock Bands, Industrial and a few singers,and was in the Music Business for over 35 years. Worked in radio,tour promotion and artist management had my own record label in the 80's and took artists all over this crazy world. Queensryche was a band I helped form and managed, after they hung out as youngsters at my store on Bel Red Road. They were all from Redmond. Have done major tours with the likes of AC-DC,Dio,Ozzy,Iron Maiden,KIss,and many more. Have got some great stories...
As Owner Broker of Sound Realty, I herd the cats and work with clients that are both new acquaintances and old friends. It's a great business. We have fun helping others achieve their goals, both clients and agents.
I also taught The History of Rock and Roll at BCC and a few high schools years back, so if you're tired of talking about real estate and have any Music Related questions...fire away!!! I love to talk about music. Hit me with your trivia questions. To this day some bands stop by with CDs for me to critique...warning, I'm as tough on them as Ardell is on the real estate industry. So don't ask if you don't really want to know.
Sound Realty and Investments, Inc. is an exercise in freedoms. Freedom of the agent to negotiate with their clients and charge fair prices. Freedom of the client to determine the level of service needed. Low costs to agents so they can pass on savings to cleints, when warranted. We are a small company with valued friends and clients. We give our heart and soul to every effort we undertake. We embrace change and all that new technologies can bring to this industry. We value all companies in our marketplace and support alternative business models in the Real Estate Industry. Change is good. We stay fresh and new, and always look for ways to improve this industry for the benefit of consumers. We value our clients and they value us, and most often become our friends and almost family.
It's a great time to be in the Real Estate Business in Seattle. Seattle is the cutting edge for many new concepts, and we are proud to be in a marketplace that says no to status quo.
More About Me
Everything from soup to nuts, first time buyers to investors, condos to multi-family. I know Seattle like the back of my hand, having moved here when I got back from Vietnam in 1969. Hard to travel through any neighborhood where I don't have former clients and current friends.

I have clients who have bought property through me, many times over. I also have clients who constantly send their friends to me and Ardell. What more of a testimonial do you need? Sometimes we hang out in my music room, which they love, while Ardell might work on parts of the contract.:When people keep coming back and sending their friends...why ask them to write a letter about how good you are. They show this by their actions. I don't need them to put it on paper.
I may ask a few of them to stop by and put their thoughts down on my first blog entry, so those who like to see written testimonials can read what they have to say. I won't ask them to put their real names though, because I value their privacy, though many of our clients know each other and have met one another at our house parties.
It's hard picking an agent these days. I know testimonials are supposed to help you pick an agent. But really. You'll know. Just meet us. You'll know. You won't need any letters and we won't give you our clients phone numbers. Though a few of our clients agree to help one another from the consumer perspective, which is really nice. But you can't meet them until we meet you, because we don't hand over our clients info without their permission and to just old anybody. We value them too much to "use" them that way.
If you are looking for property in the Seattle area, give us a call. We'll do better than most if we can, and tell you if we can't. If what you want isn't what we do best, we'll be the first one to tell you and we'll point you in the right direction if we can.
