Passion

passionIntegrity, honesty, and hard work; that is what has kept me in business for over 10 years.  I am rewarded only when my customers are satisfied.  The greatest testimony to my success is when one of my customers refers one of his or her friends or family to me because of the positive experience they had.

I am originally from North Dakota.  I have been in Seattle since 1987.  I earned my Business degree from the University of Washington.    I have two boys, William and Matthew and enjoy every moment I can with them.  I work hard while maintaining balance, for it has been said; "The better part of ones life consists of his friendships".     

 The number one thing I've learned from my customers is they really appreciate clear, honest communication.   When selling, I deliver comprehensive calendars of all the marketing activities that will occur.  I preview the latest on the market so you can get that gem when it just hits the market. I don't just send my clients pictures, As the saying goes;  pictures only tell half of the story.

Isn't it  great to work with people you genuinely like to spend time with?
