Whether you’re looking for a first home, a move-up or downsized home, or a vacation home, one of the best ways to start your search is by looking at inventory with our online search. You can do a general search or narrow it down by categories like geographic location or type of housing/land.
Online searches work well for a quick look, but I’ll have much more detailed information about available properties. Looking in person together will allow me time to listen to your feedback so that I can help you narrow down your search – saving you time, and often money. It will also help you, as you look at properties, to identify what you like and don’t like, and what your ‘must haves’ are.
Buying a new home can be a great adventure—a chance to imagine a new lifestyle, re-create a familiar atmosphere, expand for a growing family, downsize for easier living, discover a new neighborhood, and redefine a happier, healthier future.
One often-overlooked aspect of home shopping is a dwelling’s sustainability—think energy efficiency, indoor air quality, water management, and siting considerations. Sustainably built or retrofitted homes offer many advantages for quality of life, aging in place, and future resale value. Consider:
NEW FOR 2024:
Beginning on January 1, 2024, the Washington State Agency Law will require real estate firms to enter into a written “brokerage services agreement” with any party the firm represents, both sellers and buyers. This change is to ensure that buyers (in addition to sellers) clearly understand the terms of the firm’s representation and compensation.

If you’re thinking of selling your home, soon or in the future, increasing its sustainability can offer benefits while you remain in the home as well as enhance its future value.
My goal is to work with you to identify the home you’re hoping to create as well as to maximize its health and lifestyle benefits.
As a full-service real estate broker and member of the National Association of Realtors®, with training in sustainable building, I offer you an enhanced range of skills. I’d be honored to help guide you to meet your aesthetic and practical goals, as well as to make best use of modern available resources and live in concert with our natural environment. I call it intentional living.
My expertise is grounded in providing step-by-step guidance toward achieving a higher-performance home or business. Whether you are buying, selling, building, or upgrading, I can help you navigate design considerations, assessments, certifications, rebates, incentives, vendors, and more.
Helping to Build Healthier Communities for You, Your Family, and Our Planet
With more than 20 years as a real estate broker and as a Healthy Home Consultant, my client base includes both buyers and sellers, and homeowners who want to learn more about living in a Healthy Home. We talk about Green modification like low flow fixtures and toilets, under-sink instant water heaters to reduce the amount of wasted hot water, recycling and composting, drought resistant and edible landscaping, and low voc paints and finishes. All of these things can be adapted in your current home or added to a home you are buying. The bottom line is that when your HOME is healthy, you are healthier, too!
I take pleasure in providing individualized and high-quality care for buyers, sellers, and homeowners who prioritize their family’s health and understand the importance of an energy efficient and low maintenance home.
Where we live affects how we live and how we feel, and it all intersects with our overall quality of life. A home is the largest investment most people will make; investing in a healthy home can decrease your medical bills and increase your sense of wellbeing.
