We are excited to introduce the newest members of our Homes for Heroes affiliate team!
I am passionate about helping people who currently serve or have served our community, and being a Homes for Heroes Realtor is one way I can give back. In my opinion, those who give so much to our communities are our unsung Heroes and deserve as much help as we can give them! Walking along side sellers as they prepare and sell their house is something I take very seriously. Having a background working with first time home buyers for over 10 years in education and credit counseling, it was a natural move to become a Realtor over 7 year ago to help people find their home. I am very familiar with all of the programs that offer down payment and closing cost assistance and love sharing this knowledge with my 1st time home buyers! What I love most, is seeing their face when they get to hold their keys for the very first time. It is my honor and privilege to serve those who give so much! I promise the same attention, integrity, and enthusiasm to each person and/or family I meet and assist. So whether you are Firefighters/EMS, Law Enforcement, Military (Active, Reserve and Veterans), Healthcare Workers, or Teachers ~ and are considering selling or buying a house, please think of me and the passion and experience I bring to the table. I would love to be “your smart choice for your real estate needs.
I am excited to be an affiliate of the Homes for Heroes program and to help Heroes achieve the American Dream of home ownership. The Homes for Heroes organization allows me to give back to the Heroes that are truly deserving including current and former firefighters, law enforcement, military (active, reserves and veterans), healthcare workers, emergency medical services, and teachers.
Prior to becoming a Realtor at Keller Williams Realty, I worked in not-for-profit fundraising helping organizations raise money to support their missions. I know how important even the smallest contribution can make to supporting a larger goal. That is why I choose to be an Affiliate and donate a portion of my commission to go directly back to the Hero and the Homes for Heroes foundation. No matter what the Heroes’ budget may be, I am proud to be able to help them find their way home.
I am a licensed Real Estate Broker in Oregon/Washington and I grew up in the Portland Metro area. I have a very close family and the best parents a man could ask for! My father sold real estate for years and built a view homes. He has passed his knowledge of real estate on to me and I am very blessed to have received that.
I can offer you a wealth of knowledge and services to assist you in the sale of your home or the purchase of a home. I will guide you from start to finish and I will do my best to make each transaction go as smooth as possible. I will always deal honestly and in good faith, exercise reasonable care, loyalty and diligence.
Both my father, mother, grandfather, uncle and many of my close friends all served or are still serving in the U.S. military, police forces, fire departments and in the school districts. I am very grateful to be part of Homes for Heroes and I consider it a privilege to assist you on the sale of your current home or help you find and purchase your perfect home.
“Thank You All” for your services.
