You know that feeling when you walk into your new home? The excitement! The possibilities! That excitement is why I am a Realtor. Being able to help a buyer find the perfect home is what motivates me. I have always loved working with people. It is my goal to confidently guide people through the buying process and build relationships that last after the sale.
I love exploring, adventuring, and roughing it. I moved to Alaska to work on a small placer gold claim 100 miles above the Arctic circle, halfway between Wiseman and Coldfoot. There, as part of a 3-man mining crew, I lived in a one room shack, with no utilities. We lived pretty rough. We drank from the creek, and feasted on meat from the unsmashed half of a moose, who met his demise on the Ice Road. It was refreshing to live so simply, but we never found the ¿mother lode¿. I received my pay in gold dust and headed for the next adventure.
Back in the lower 48, I previously worked as a muscle car mechanic in Oregon, a lettuce farmer in West Virginia, a snowmaker in Maine, a dairy farmer in Pennsylvania, a tanker truck driver in Kentucky, and I was a Sergeant in the Army Reserve. Also, I¿m a leather smith and I enjoy making custom wallets, holsters, and dog collars.
I came here to Southeast Alaska to work on a fishing boat. I fell in love with the rugged beauty and the small town feel of Haines. I love it here, and I¿d love to help you buy or sell your home here in Haines or Skagway.
