How long have you been in real estate? Since 2018
Why did you get into real estate? Always had a curiosity about the industry.
What was your most rewarding real estate experience? Helping one of my close friends buy a new home to support their growing family.
What is your favorite thing about Whatcom County? The beauty and the people. I love exploring the outdoors with my dog and trying new things. And the people have been welcoming and kind since the moment I moved here.
What real estate trend do you love (or hate) right now? The limited inventory and water restrictions on rural living is really challenging. People struggling to find the right property fit in a price range that is comfortable for them.
What is your favorite hobby or guilty pleasure? Trying new sports - I have been getting into road biking this spring and bought a paddleboard late last summer.
If you could have dinner with one person (dead, alive, fictional, etc.), who would it be? First person that comes to mind is Warren Buffett. I have read is biography, and I think a conversation with him would be incredibly enlightening.
