My family has deep roots in Seattle commercial real estate. 25 years ago, my father co-founded a prominent commercial real estate appraisal firm here. Some of my earliest memories are him pointing out the many buildings he toured and valued. As the city and I both grew, he began to share more of the intricacies of appraising and the complexity of our market. Since then, I’ve been fortunate to work alongside incredibly smart and creative people who have motivated me to pursue a career in commercial real estate.
