I have been a licensed Sales Associate since 1985, a Broker in Washington since 1994 and a Broker in Oregon since 1998. Experienced in residential, unimproved, commercial, investment and recreational property, I am familiar with the laws and regulations regarding these property specialties. I have been successfully employed as a full-time Realtor in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge since 1990 and am committed to providing the highest level of service to my clients and customers in the tradition of Windermere Real Estate Columbia River Gorge. I am also committed to community service. I served as a Board Member of the Mid Columbia Association of Realtors from 1998-2011. I am proud to have been voted the 2005 Realtor of the Year for the Mid Columbia Association of Realtors. I am a Past President of the Rotary Club of White Salmon-Bingen and the Mt. Adams Chamber of Commerce. I have been a member of the Rotary Club of White Salmon-Bingen since 1995. In May of 2007 I accepted an appointment to the Columbia Gorge Commission on behalf of Klickitat County and served as a Gorge Commissioner through 2017. In 2011, I was unanimously elected to the position of Chairman of the Columbia River Gorge Commission and assumed that position January 2012. I was the first Washington resident to hold that position since 1986, the initial year of the existence of the Gorge Commission. My term as chairman was completed 12/31/2013. I completed my term of service as the Klickitat County representative on June 1, 2017. My ten years of service on the commission provided amazing insights and a great opportunity to serve the citizens of Klickitat County. My wife Kathleen and I have lived in the Columbia River Gorge in White Salmon, WA since 1990 and foresee this as our lifetime home.
