I grew up in Huntington Beach, California which is about an hour south of Los Angeles in Orange County. My family’s home was in Huntington Harbor, a series of man‐made islands accessed from the Pacific Ocean by a large channel. As a result, much of my childhood and teen years were spent on the water; surfing, sailing, swimming and rowing.
I met my wife, Tanya, while I was living in San Diego. She was a professional event planner who had relocated to San Diego from Anchorage, so a few years after we were married, we decided that Anchorage would be a wonderful place to raise a family. We made the trip north in June of 2001 and have never regretted it for a moment. We have two wonderful children: Our son, Andrew, is seventeen years old, loves playing basketball for Dimond High School and working on his truck. Our daughter, Lauren, is nearly fourteen years old and aspires to play volleyball for DHS when she starts in the Fall. Both of our children are in the public school system here in Anchorage, which Tanya and I consider excellent. We both take an active role in their school lives as board members on the Dimond High PTSA.
I began my career in real estate in 1984 (36 years ago!). I spent the first 5 years in commercial syndication and brokerage and made the transition to residential sales after selling my company in 1989. Since then, I have personally handled hundreds of real estate transactions, and have also experimented with building and running a real estate related internet company.
I started with RE/MAX in 2003, and recently returned to the company after spending a brief time away at another real estate firm. I am a firm believer in the power of the brand and the professional standards it represents. I love the real estate profession, and I served my colleagues as president of the Anchorage Board of REALTORS® in 2016, and as president of the Alaska Association of REALTORS® in 2019. I was the 2016 REALTOR® of the Year, and I continue to support the REALTOR® organization as they advocate for the rights of private property owners like you and me.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your real estate goals. Expect exceptional service!
