Kirkland Style is a feeling, a sentiment, a lifestyle. Inspired by my blissful summer afternoons growing up in this amazing city – from swim lessons at the Peter Kirk pool, to easy walks to the grocery store, to endless adventures at the beach – I've valued Kirkland Style from the beginning and have a nostalgic fondness for the city’s unique homes and neighborhoods. Kirkland’s landscape has greatly evolved since the 80s, yet the small-town feel, quaint downtown, and natural beauty persist.
I’m a proud Husky and UW Business School alum, where I devoured my classes in marketing and organizational behavior. But after just a few years working as a producer and manager at Nordstrom.com. I craved the opportunity to run my own business, with full creative and strategic control, and no limits on achievement.
Developing a business in the real estate arena was a natural choice - I’d been invested from age 23. Likewise, it was well-suited to my deeply instilled Nordstrom service style when taking care of clients.
Home is a special place, an environment that has a huge impact on mood, energy, and contentment - I love that Bryon and I get to channel our knowledge and energy into helping our clients make the best decisions when it comes to such an important investment.
Kirkland is a city unlike any other – I know this as someone who lived in five different states before the age of 16. Starting in Spokane, I learned quickly what ‘show ready’ meant, and was often relied on for those perfect vacuum lines. After so many moves, I was grateful to ultimately return to the beautiful PNW in time to attend the University of Washington.
As a result of visiting so many different regions and people, treasured time spent playing and traveling with the Cleveland Indians organization, and several devoted years in management with Nordstrom, I was well-prepared for my role in real estate where I am fortunate to always be meeting new people. And with a lifetime affection for architecture and development, I couldn’t be happier contributing to this field.
Once jokingly referred to by a client as “The Real Estate Computer”, I acknowledge I am thoroughly dedicated in my research of land, properties, history, and city code. While Natasha and I have varied skill sets, we also have similar goals and approaches, which affords us a natural strength in collaboration.
I want to help buyers and sellers become aware of a property’s investment options, zoning, and renovation or development potential to ensure they have a complete picture of their real estate transaction. I’m always glad to welcome new neighbors to this amazing community.
