I was born and raised in Coos Bay, Oregon and had the privilege of attending Coos Bay Schools, graduating from Marshfield High School in 1987. Once a Pirate, always a Pirate!
I married my wife Laura in 1992 and we had two children together; Andrew 20 and Tyler 18. Our boys are both graduates of Marshfield High School and will be attending Linfield College this fall. Andrew is studying Computer Science and Tyler will be studying Applied Physics.
I was also blessed to have a daughter named Shirlee who is currently a medical assistant at North Bend Medical Center.
I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit and looked for ways to go into business for myself. I have owned a cable contracting company as well as a pizza parlor in the area. I have worked in the telecommunications industry and sales for the bulk of my career. I came to real estate late in my life, but feel like I have found my niche.
Having grown up in this area, I am very knowledgeable about the ins and outs of various neighborhoods. I have volunteered a lot in the community; serving as a school board member, coach, and committee members for various non-profits. I have relationships with many business owners due to my connections in past careers and I am familiar with the school systems for both North Bend and Coos Bay.
All of this local experience makes me well suited to meet the needs of my real estate clients and I look forward to helping people find their forever home, their starter home, business location, or plot of land.
