My love for real estate and architecture began early in my life. My mother was a broker in Wisconsin when I was a teenager I used to spend time with her checking out homes and helping with photography.  I remember my mother baking bread and cookies and making her famous cheesecake for special open houses.

One sale of hers was of particular importance to me and looking back it was certainly foreshadowing of things to come. The home was an original Frank Lloyd Wright and I loved it from the moment I saw it. As was typical of Wrights designs it had low ceilings, small bedrooms and even smaller closets but I loved it. She ended up selling it for what is now the cost of a moderately priced car. That deal haunts me to this day….what an investment it would have been.

My appreciation for Southern California modernist architecture in particular grew a number of years ago when I lived in the LA area. The designs of Richard Neutra, John Lautner epitomized the modernist movement. It was then that I was introduced to the work of Buff & Hensman a prominent local firm whose designs I appreciate to this day and was fortunate enough to bid on(and failed to get) two of their designs. Great design is timeless.

If you’re looking to purchase an existing home for a primary or weekend residence or investment I’d love the opportunity to assist you with your selection and purchase. Additionally, here in the Pacific Northwest and on Whidbey Island we are fortunate to have some fantastic architects and design firms. If building your dream home is on the horizon I can assist in land/lot searches and purchase and introduce you to local builders and designers and architects.

I’ve been fortunate in my 25 years of corporate work to travel and work in many countries and I’ve enjoyed it immensely. Weather you live in Asia, Europe or South America I’d love to introduce Whidbey Island to you and show you all the great things our community has to offer.  

If you currently own a home or property in the area and are interested in a complimentary price assessment (market analysis) I would be happy to assist you. Inventory is low and it’s a great time to list.
