Dawn and Corey love what they do. It’s about exceptional client experiences.It’s about relationships with engaged clients who become fans. In the words of one client . . . “Rockstar Pandas made of Magic”. Enough said about that.

For over twenty years, Dawn and Corey have worked in the best interest of their clients, the same way they would want to be treated. They live in Magnolia. They know the neighborhood. They call it home. Use that neighborhood expertise to help you achieve your real estate dreams.

For over 24 years, I have worked diligently in the best interests of my clients. It is the way I choose to conduct business. It’s the way I would want to be treated.

No one will work harder for you. No one will appreciate more the opportunity to earn your trust. In a word, service. Plain, old-fashioned service. Let’s make your real estate goals a reality!

Growing up on a farm in Idaho, I learned early on that hard work and persistence are necessary to success. I moved to Seattle to attend Seattle Pacific University. While I love urban living, the farm boy in me still appreciates the rural lifestyle. You can take the boy away from the farm, but you can’t take the farm out of the boy.

I love living in Magnolia with my wife, three sons, and our dog, Lucy, Queen of the Manor.

My favorite three words? Attention. To. Detail.

Luckily a real estate transaction is all about details. From preparing a home to list, making sure the photos show off your home’s best features, having the home look its best to creating all the marketing and having the entire place showtime-ready, the details are where it is at for me! I take pride in the presentation of the home to the market because I know that the timing is and having everything just right is what is going to help you get top dollar.

Running close second to details is compassion for my clients. It isn’t easy to buy or sell a home, but I am there, looking out for your interests. Whenever possible, I put myself in your shoes and help you move forward in a way that is comfortable to you and is in line with your goals. Because in the end, this home buying or selling process is about you.

I was raised in Wisconsin and am a graduate of UW-Madison – Go Badgers! I cut my teeth in the Chicago real estate market before moving to Seattle in 1993. At home in both rural and urban environments — perhaps that’s why I love Magnolia. I happily share a noisy household with my husband, daughter, our silly French bulldogs and a stunningly old bunny named Yukon Jack.

I don’t just live in Magnolia – I have raised my daughter here. The community has provided a wonderful backdrop for her life. From the parks to the community center, the friendly merchants in the Village, and proximity to Downtown Seattle, I cannot say enough good things about how special of a place it has been for all of us to see her grow up here.
