I made the decision to jump into real estate in 2002. My wife & I purchased our first home in Broadview (North Seattle) and had a very below average experience with just about no follow up after we signed the contract. I thought, "Wouldn't it be cool to be the kind of agent who focused on being as informative & knowledgeable as possible while making the process enjoyable too?" Shortly after that, I acquired my license and began selling homes. For 10 years prior, I had been working as a social worker helping homeless young adults obtain housing, so I saw potential for tons of crossover between the two professions. That experience helped me understand that listening to what someone wants for themselves, rather than what I want for them, could be an asset. 

My amazing family consists of my wife, Rebecca and two sons- Henry (born in 2003) & Elliott (born 18 months later-I know, they're close in ages...but we're officially done!). If you're lucky enough to ever meet me via real estate purposes, I may be accompanied by one of my "assistants" on random occasions and you can bet that you'll like me even more after that. We have two dogs-Jetson the black lab & Ringo the fierce chihuahua. We currently live in Ballard's Whittier Heights neighborhood where we have been since 2005 and are loving every minute! The Adamsons love to travel & Miss Rebecca is a local celebrity in her role as "office lady" at Whittier Elementary School. In my spare time I play and coach basketball plus have a little hobby where I play rockin' music for children & families in a band called The Not-Its!

In closing, I have lived in the Seattle area my entire life, which is a definite plus in a real estate professional. I love this city and enjoy being a member of our community. Being a Realtor at Lake & Company Real Estate is a wonderful fit for me.....and my family!  Lake's tremendous reputation in the city is a joy to be a part of. I know what there is to know about Seattle neighborhoods- ones to jump on and ones to avoid. I have an excellent track record and I come with great references. My belief is that the relationship between a real estate agent and a client lasts for life, not ends after closing on a home. I look forward to meeting you and discussing how I can exceed all of your real estate expectations!

Meet my amazing assistant, Jenzi Thomas! With the market moving so fast, and since I can't be in two places at once, I'm excited to have Jenzi here to help!

"I moved to Seattle 8 years ago, landed in Ballard, and fell in love with my neighborhood and this city! I fulfilled a life-long dream of becoming a licensed real estate agent and now get to spend my days meeting amazing people and being a part of helping them sell their homes or find their perfect next home! When I'm not working, I'm usually riding my bike to the beach, out for a hike, or scoping out a new restaurant with friends."
