Broker @ Sterling Real Estate


Why are you proud to be a Sterling Broker?

As a child I spent many days in Whatcom County visiting my grandparents’ dairy farm in Everson, WA. I grew up across the border in Abbotsford and after high school, worked in the home construction industry for a few years. I attended Dordt College where I earned a BA degree in Exercise Science. I stayed in the Midwest for several years, earning my Master of Science degree from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. I then worked as a personal trainer and home remodeler while living in Minnesota, my wife’s home state. In 2006, I moved back to the Northwest with my wife and two sons to where we currently live in Everson. I have spent the last 6 years raising our sons and the past 3 years working part-time as a PEHR instructor at Western Washington University. I am a health and fitness enthusiast and enjoy the vast outdoor recreational opportunities this area has to offer. I currently own and operate my own home remodeling business in Whatcom County. Green building solutions are inspiring to me, and I am always trying to improve my abilities to create more efficient and functional homes. I decided to become a real estate broker and join Sterling Real Estate Group because of my passion for helping people while providing straightforward, high quality service. I look forward to helping you in any way I can!
