I have over 22 years of experience working as a Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX in the Seattle area. The phonetic rude might not be polite, but I am!
The phonetic (rood) meaning of my name may not be polite but I am! Having a family history of 60+ years in the Seattle real estate market lead to my great desire to continue the tradition of working in real estate. Being a native “Seattleite" and raised on Mercer Island, my knowledge of the Puget Sound area made it even more inevitable that I become a professional in the real estate arena. While obtaining my Bachelor‘s degree and a business minor at Seattle Pacific University, I managed my family’s real estate investments. I obtained my license in 1994 and have been an active full time selling agent ever since. My area of expertise includes the Eastside & Mercer Island as well as Seattle, helping many individuals and families with their real estate needs.
The Pacific Northwest is (in my opinion), one of the most beautiful places to live in our country. We're surrounded by fresh air, clean water, and are fortunate enough to have the gorgeous Olympic and Cascade mountain ranges on either side of us, and stunning Mount Rainier to the south. The mountains give us magnificent views and make for beautiful sunsets from wherever we happen to be in the region. The outdoor activities here are endless! Enjoy sailing, hiking, rock climbing, camping, biking, running, skiing, etc.! The Pacific Northwest has it all.
Not only is Seattle a great place for exploring the outdoors, but there are plenty of things to do inside as well! From the numerous cafés found on nearly every corner, all offering their own cozy atmosphere, we also have plenty of pubs, sushi bars, dessert shops, and many elegant dining spots downtown, right on Puget Sound. Seattleites are spoiled with our endless food options!
If it’s sporting events you're interested in, we have plenty of outings year-round to please sports fans of all ages. From the Sounders to the Mariners, and of course, our beloved Seahawks, you're sure to find a sporting event that will keep you entertained within the city. Husky pride is also apparent here, so catch a University of Washington Football or Basketball game to see what the hype is all about!
Seattle and its surrounding cities and neighborhoods all offer a wide range of housing opportunities. The architecture is ever changing but always unique and beautiful, with options ranging from breathtaking waterfront properties, to modern downtown condos, cutting edge contemporary estates, and homes with vintage charm.
With so many options to choose from, I guarantee you'll have no trouble calling Seattle "home."
