Specializing in recreational and investment real estate in Sandpoint, Idaho and Schweitzer Mountain Resort.
Realtors don’t have the best reputation and I like to think I go against that grain. My clients consider me their confidant and totally trust me because I get satisfaction out of finding them the right place, negotiating the best deal, getting it closed (which isn’t always easy), and creating that relationship that lasts a long time.
I’m not afraid to advise a client we can get a better, lower price or to walk away from a deal if I know we can get do better. Maybe I personally make less money in the short-term but this philosophy pays huge dividends in the long run. It’s not about the size of the commission check; it’s about the long-term, mutually beneficial client relationships.

Having been in the business for 15 years, I know a great deal about the market, the ordinances, legal issues and nuances so I’m able to intelligently answer your questions on a variety of issues. I have one client who calls me a “know it all, but a legit know it all.”
My listings range from Schweitzer Mountain ski-in/ski-out condos as well as Lake Pend Oreille waterfront homes and Sandpoint homes. When you are ready, please contact me so I can help you find the right property. (Or sell it)
I’m not here to sell property and move on – I’m here to be your agent for as long as you are in our area, and will always do the best job possible. This is why I frequently become my client’s preferred agent. It’s not just about finding you great deals – it’s about making you money and saving you money.
When I’m not at work
I have lived in Sandpoint for over 20 years with my wife Lisa and our two dogs, Murphy and Pepper. For over a decade, we have lived up at Schweitzer Mountain. It’s the longest either of us has ever lived in one place and there is a reason for that. It fills all our needs – outdoor activities, great friends and a wonderful feeling of community. We have one beautiful daughter (and now two grandsons with a granddaughter on the way).
Before I went into real estate, I had 15 years of resort and restaurant management experience in Sandpoint, Idaho, Colorado and Louisiana plus another 5 years in the potato farming industry in Montana.
I graduated from high school in Colorado Springs and attended UCCS (University of Colorado Springs Colorado) and graduated with a degree in resort and restaurant management.
I enjoy skiing, mountain biking, hiking, boating, photography and cooking.
