About Me.

Hello,


I spent the first portion of my career as a Police Officer in the San Francisco Bay Area. During that time, I assisted a diverse group of people during some of the most difficult times of their lives. Through about a decade of service I honed my communication skills and became an expert problem solver, savvy negotiator, and a strong judge of character. While an injury cut my career short, I am now blessed to have the opportunity to assist people during some of the happiest experiences in their lives. 


I have a keen understanding of questions, concerns and issues that can occur. I personally relocated my family to Idaho from California and I am passionate about helping you do the same! My client-centered approach provides robust market knowledge, uncompromising integrity and a true desire to protect my clients.


I look forward to being able to assist you through every step of the buying or selling process. Whether you want to be in the mountains, down by a lake or in a loft overlooking downtown Boise; I will be honored to assist you in making your dreams a reality.
