About me:

Originally from Southern California, I moved to Washington State to earn a Bachelor of Science degree. My experiences, coupled with years in law enforcement, have provided me with valuable skills that I use daily in real estate.

I have a passion for helping people and believe it is my mission to provide any possible service for my community. My peers often describe me as detail-oriented, hard-working, personable, and fun to be around. I recognize and value the trust that my clients place in me. I do my best to continuously go the extra mile to exceed my client’s expectations.

I am a Real Estate Broker at Compass in the Greater Eastside area. My office is in Downtown Bellevue. As a Compass Broker, my mission is transactional excellence and client satisfaction. That means I work tirelessly to make my client’s home buying or selling process as efficient and stress-free as possible.

My current title is a Real Estate Broker. My goal is to become a Managing Broker by 2023.

I became a Real Estate Broker because I truly enjoy helping people and building long lasting relationships. Real estate also allows you to determine your own future. The possibilities are endless, and I like that I am my own boss and can create my own destiny.

I started my career as a licensed broker in November 2020. I have currently been an agent for 10 months and have sold over 20 homes.

I believe the best trait to have in this career is being a good listener. Not only do you have to listen to what people are saying, you must listen to what they aren’t saying. What they aren’t saying can speak volumes. You look at their body language when you discuss their finances, and you watch their faces when they enter properties. Those small nuisances are very insightful. So many agents are too busy “selling” that they can’t hear what their client is trying to tell them.

I'd like to share an experience where I succeeded at helping a family buy and move into a home in a certain school district before school started:

A family previously put three offers on homes, in the sought-after Woodridge community of Bellevue, but got beat out every time. They needed to get their 6-year-old daughter in the school district before the school year started in September.

I knew it wasn’t going to be easy, but I thought outside the box and got them a beautiful home in the Woodridge community with panoramic views of the city. I wrote hundreds of personal letters to homeowners asking if they were interested in selling their home.

We closed in 20 days with some extra time to move in before school started. This was an amazing feeling.

Now they are my dear friends, and I am thankful to have them as lifelong clients.
