After graduating from the University of Washington in 1987 with a BA in English I went straight into the international area of imports. I was a licensed broker within 3 years of entering the field and opened numerous branches for international companies. I owned my own brokerage company from 1995 to 2002 and retired from the industry in 2005. At the same time I owned a couple espresso stands with a gimmick; a proud accomplishment was beating Starbucks and Tully’s to win the 5 year contract with the Seahawks Stadium for all coffee vending. I sold my last store to a licensee in 2009 and dove head first into the commercial real estate world and I have loved every minute of it. I have specialized in Restaurant Sales and have proven to be a Top Producer since the day I started. Averaging a close a month in a recessed economy had been my achievable goal.
I have now joined forces with Keller Williams Commercial to open my base of knowledge and deals immensely. I specialize in restaurants and business sales and have expanded further into commercial sales and leasing. Averaging 2.5 closings per month in the past year.
Most of my adult life I have worked for myself and been highly successful. The number one reason is because I treat customers the way I want to be treated, with respect and understanding. I understand that without the customer, I would have no business.
Give me a call or email, I have plenty of references to share, and I look forward to adding you to my list of referrals. I can be reached at 360-551-1902 or email@example.com
