Hi, I was born at a very young age, a fact for which my mother is grateful. Nearly from the day I was born until twelve years ago, I traveled the world. I had malaria in Mexico before I was two. I had my second brithday on a freighter in Manila Harbor. I spent 12 of my first 18 years in the philippines. In Nov 1970, I won the lottery with my prize being an all expenses paid round trip to Vietnam. I stayed with Uncle Sam for 21 years in the army and another 5 years as a civilian working for the Navy. Most of that time was in various asian locations, Thailand, Japan, Thailand again, Vietnam, Hawaii, a stint in Germany--you get the picture. In all that travel, I learned how to listen to people and how to get things done in adverse circumstances. I brought those skills to my real estate business which I have done here in Spokane for about 12 years preceded by a couple years in Hawaii. I look forward to a very hands on opportunity helping you sell or buy your home.
