Realtor® at Dwell Realty LLC
Whether buying a home for the first time or investing in multi-family real estate, I believe that the key to success is a balance of business acumen and emotional intelligence. With a wealth of experience as a builder of businesses across multiple industries, including commercial real estate, technology, and hospitality, I hope to bring a calm wisdom borne of high pressure situations.
Becoming a residential real estate Broker has allowed me to use my experience to impact people’s lives in a direct and personal way, cutting through the potential stress to find a smooth and seamless way forward. I use the hashtag #betteragent not just because it’s my last name – My goal is to always represent you, my Client, in achieving a result that works for both your lifestyle and financial goals.
As the third generation of real estate professionals, I began my real estate career in San Francisco, managing what is now a 300,000 square footAdobe Software office in the Baker Hamilton building. After a foray as a commercial real estate analyst, I entered the nascent internet technology field, quickly rising to head up sales for Studio Verso, leading to its acquisition by KPMG Consulting. For 10 years, I owned the New Easy in Oakland, California, which was an award-winning cocktail lounge that focused on seasonal and local ingredients. I continue to be involved in the real estate, technology, and hospitality worlds as an adviser and at times as an investor.
I live with my wife, child, and two goofy cats in inner Southeast Portland. When not working, I enjoy the outdoors, cooking, cocktails, clay shooting, and lacrosse. I can also be found hopefully waiting (and waiting) for my beloved Alma Mater (Tulane University in New Orleans) to field a decent football team.
