Artfully Uniting Discerning Individuals with Extraordinary Properties

My productive and successful real estate career began in my home town of Seattle in 1980, when interest rates were 18%. To say that was a proving ground is an understatement. I worked at a high-end boutique firm, Heritage House, in the Tony neighborhood of Washington Park. My love of houses, neighborhoods, and the people who made them into communities motivated me to become a top agent by the time I moved to San Francisco in 1987.

Within 3 years of landing in SF, I was the top agent at the high-end boutique firm, Vincent Friia & Company. From there, I moved to TRI which became THE firm in SF for many years. I was always among the top percentile of those 100+ agents. After a few years at Sotheby’s, I felt the Coldwell Banker Global Luxury would offer my clients better exposure. I have now made the move to Berkshire Hathaway in Pacific Heights and am pleased to have associated with the most respected brand in Real Estate.
