When you're buying or selling real estate, it's critical you have a knowledgeable, ethical and hardworking professional on your side. Every transaction is different, yet they're all same in one distinct way: You need someone working tirelessly on your behalf to achieve your goals. I take tremendous pride in what I do and I have an extensive track record of success. My work doesn't end until my clients are completely satisfied.

It’s a fact: Seattle and the surrounding area is one of the hottest markets in the entire country. There’s tremendous demand for homes and a continued shortage of supply. On top of that, interest rates remain relatively reasonable which drives even more demand.
In order to successfully purchase a good home in this market, you must compete with other buyers. And to win in a competitive situation, you need an agent who can make your offer strand out. One who can skillfully work on your behalf with the listing agent. I have an extensive track record of success when it comes to getting my clients the homes they want.
Thanks to our thriving local economy, the natural beauty of our region and several other factors, our real estate market is one of the hottest in the country as droves of people come into the area. Thus home prices are rising and many residences frequently receive multiple offers getting over asking price. But to get the most money for your home, the proper steps must be followed. It’s not as simple as putting up a sign in your yard. To the contrary, if you don’t do things right, you’re leaving money on the table.
The details matter - whether it's the price you set or the way you prepare your home for sale. It requires a seasoned professional who understands the market, pays attention to detail and is committed to getting the job done right.

I come from a family of real estate professionals. My grandfather, a Chinese immigrant who arrived in 1910 with $20 to his name, acquired a small piece of land in 1929 in a trade with another immigrant. He slowly acquired more. My father followed his father's footsteps and turned Grandpa's holdings into a family-owned real estate business.
As a boy, I spent countless hours driving in the family station wagon with my dad, evaluating properties for purchase and sale. In 1992, I first got my real estate license. I derive tremendous satisfaction from working with all different kinds of clients at various stages in their lives. For me, working in real estate is about helping clients get exactly what they need. There's nothing more satisfying.
I live in the Mt. Baker neighborhood of Seattle with my wife and two kids.
