I first began my real estate career in the Columbia River Gorge in the early 1990’s. In the mid 1990’s I moved to the Oregon Coast where I managed a  multi branch real estate firm. In July of 2005, I returned to the Columbia River Gorge as the Risk Manager for Windermere Glenn Taylor Real Estate as well as Principal Broker/Sales manager for the offices in Hood River & The Dalles. In August of 2007, Glenn Taylor elected to retire after more than 35 years and I continued the journey as the new owner of the Hood River office of Windermere Glenn Taylor Real Estate. In the years to follow, I acquired ownership of offices in Stevenson, Bingen, The Dalles and most recently Cascade Locks as well as opened a second location in Hood River.  In 2016, I added a Property Management Company to help our clients manage investment properties throughout the Columbia River Gorge.  In January of 2018, our name was updated to better reflect what we do and where we do it! The Columbia River Gorge area market real estate leader with 55 brokers in 4 counties and 2 states. 


With several years of management experience serving not only in a Managing Broker capacity but also serving on the Lincoln County Board Of Realtors® Board Of Directors for more than 7 years, I have learned that being involved is the key to success in any industry. As President of the Lincoln County Board Of Realtors®, 2003 Lincoln County Realtor® of The Year, State Director for the Oregon Association Of Realtors® as well as chairperson for many other operational committees, I was given an unequivocal opportunity to learn and grow by volunteering time to our industry. Other positions held at the state level include Chairperson for the Oregon Association Of Realtors® Business Issues Key Objective Group and a Member of the Oregon Association Of Realtors® Executive Committee, and then serving locally as a Director for the Mid Columbia Association of Realtors® where I became Realtor Of The Year in 2012.


Over the years, I have also had the privileged of earning many Realtor® specific designations. Those include: Graduate of the Realtor Institute (GRI), Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR) as well as being one of less than 25 Accredited Buyer Representative Manager’s (ABRM) in the State of Oregon and the Certified Real Estate Brokerage Manager (CRB) designation. In addition, I am a trained mediator and a Licensed Real Estate Instructor in the State of Washington and Oregon for training of new and experienced agents. The real estate industry has allowed me the opportunity to align myself with my educational background in Contract Law, Business law and Business Management and to focus on those things that are most important to me, my family and my career. Doing what you love to do makes such a dramatic difference in your life!
