We explored a good portion of the western United States before deciding to make Orcas Island our home in 1977. We were drawn to the natural beauty of the place, but as many islanders do, we found that there is much more to the island than it's natural beauty. I began my time on the island in construction, and transitioned to real estate full time in 1986. I would love to share my long term perspective, and my intimate knowledge of the fabric of island life with you.
