A little about me:
I have lived on the West Side of Olympia since 1985.
I served two times in the active duty military, including on the ground in Viet Nam. In my second stint while in the U.S. Coast Guard, I was stationed at 14th Coast Guard District HQ in Honolulu and USCG Air Station Astoria.
My wife worked for the State of Washington for 22 years; prior to her passing. As a result; I feel a strong connection to the many amazing state workers who rarely get the recognition they deserve for helping our state stay such a great place to live.
My partner and I, have 3 rental properties as well as our home. We've been homeowners in Thurston County since the 80's. We have personally completed major updates on several of our homes. From replacing plumbing and electrical panels to putting a new roof on, we've done nearly everything to a home. Our experience in this area; might help you avoid a potential repair problem or provide you with thoughts on how to make your home fit your needs even better with minor changes.
I was born in Omaha, Nebraska. I've also lived in Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon. I have done business worldwide. As VP Int'l Sales I have visited many of the Asian cities as well as many European countries.
Please consider letting us help you sell your home...or find the perfect new home.
