Windermere Real Estate Midtown

I believe people are the core of real estate. Of course, buildings, interior design, landscaping etc. are incredibly important – but not if what you are showing doesn’t meet your client’s criteria. I strive to listen more than I talk and ask thought provoking questions to fundamentally comprehend what you are hoping to achieve before targeting my approach. Developing relationships with clients and harnessing contacts within the industry allow me maximize my skillset, resulting in streamlined transactions and successful outcomes for you.

Working in a highly competitive industry, I realize that creating exceptional value for my clients is a must. A can-do attitude, prioritization of communication and advanced service offerings are the framework for my goal to make your life easier during a transaction. Real estate is also in the midst of a digital re-invention and I find it important to stay on top of industry practices to offer the most advanced solutions possible.

Real estate is all I’ve ever known professionally – or wanted. Since a young age I’ve had a keen interest in buildings and a determination to make them an integral aspect of my adult life. Early aspiration to be an architect faded by a desire to limit desk time and constantly meet new people. For this reason, upon completing my B.A. at Johns Hopkins, I enrolled at Georgetown University to obtain a Masters in Financial Real Estate. This enabled me to start a home renovation business for several years where I gained valuable experience in value determination, negotiation, budgeting, home preparation and real estate marketing. My harshest critic, the lessons I learned in what I expected from myself as a real estate professional have become the bedrock of what I offer my clients.

 

 

A German native, I grew up in London and moved to the United States for my undergraduate studies where I met my wife Elly. We briefly lived in her home state of Texas before the allure of Seattle drew us in. I'm a Mercer Island Realtor that lives in Queen Anne Park, where we are raising our daughter Lilly and where you can find me walking my good pups Beau & Fozzy.

Perched between the Cities of Seattle & Bellevue in the middle of Lake Washington, Mercer Island is the most populated lake island within the United States. Mercer Island has the fifth highest per-capita income in the State of Washington and ranks in the top 100 richest zip codes in the USA.

Named after the Mercer family, the island was previously home to two Snoqualmie villages before being settled between 1870-1880. In 1923 the East Channel Bridge connected Mercer Island to Bellevue and in 1940 the Murrow Memorial Bridge, the world's second longest floating bridge connected it to Seattle.

If you have any questions about Mercer Island real estate I'd be happy to help.
