I've been a Realtor since 1991 and currently co-own Better Properties Tacoma-Pierce County with my business partner, Greg Garner. We have located our business in central Pierce County and service Pierce and Thurston Counties and are affiliated with over thirty other Better Properties offices around the greater Puget Sound area and the southwestern part of Washington State. We are all independently owned and operated.
I specialize in residential real estate and have a marketing background in previous career positions. Real Estate is a very personal business, dealing with the dreams of first time home buyers and the hopes and wishes of who need to sell for more room, downsize, or for personal reasons. I've seen it all and have always prided myself in listening and offering advice and suggestions to the problems that arise. The experience I can offer is sound and well founded. I pride myself in follow through; extremely critical in this business. My clients can always depend on me to provide them with honest , well thought out, approaches to any issues that may arise.
With over 35 years experience, principally in my local market of Pierce County, real estate has provided invaluable experiences in interacting with Purchasers and Sellers. Assisting with the technical side of a transaction as well as the personal or emotional side of a sale or purchase is an art. Maintaining expectations and providing balance and pace keeps everyone on track and moving toward their goals. The right location, price and terms are key to the Purchaser and the right price, terms and time are key to a Seller. I help people understand situations and in doing just that; find the solutions.
On a personal note, I have lived here nearly 40 years and raised two sons Jeff and Pat who are now in their late thirties. And yes, I have the stories of a veteran little league coach. Additionally, years past still allow me to talk a respectable round of golf and presently I hold a strong interest in motor sports.
