Associate Vice President
I started my career working with my father on small single-family and multifamily buildings in Cowlitz County. During the recession, we laid flooring, hung sheetrock and did whatever it took to upgrade and fill our apartments. Born and raised in the Beaverton area I graduated from Portland State University with an undergraduate degree in Real Estate Finance and Development. I began working in the Portland Multifamily Market in 2010. I specialized in representing private owners of multifamily properties in the “close-in” markets of the East and West sides of Portland. My experience has provided me with a unique perspective of the Portland Multifamily market. I have enjoyed representing owners of century-old gems to brand new modern construction.
My goal is to help your family maximize their return on investment whether that is selling your asset for the best price, evaluating whether a purchase is right for you or finding solutions to give you more free time. Each client comes with a different set of needs. We do our best to learn the perspective, desires and goals of each client to fully understand their unique situation. From that place, we approach each step with the mindset of what would I do? If this was my money, what would I do? If my family’s income depended on this asset what would I do? Because of this we take a very cautious approach to our investment advising which helps highlight the routes that should be pursued.
I am grateful to be a part of Portland, a community that values such a high quality of life, hard work, and the entrepreneurial spirit.
While not in the office, you can almost always find me with my beautiful wife and two daughters. When the kids get older... you might find me on the golf course, ski slopes or planning our next travels.
