WELCOME to Pend Oreille's Waterfront Specialist!
We moved to Sandpoint in the summer of 1977. The area's abundant outdoor resources and mild four seasons are what originally lured us. Its people and their warm welcome are what hooked and landed us. It has been a fabulous environment for me and my wife Jill to raise our son Andy. Between school, the wide variety of outdoor sports, and community activities we have led a busy and productive life in Bonner County. Andy earned his Masters in Human Factors Psychology at the University of Idaho in Moscow (just 120 miles South of Sandpoint) and is now working in Blacksburg, Virginia, at Virginia Tech Transportation Institute. He is in research, working to make our highways safer. He is also on the National Transportation Safety Board in the Truck and Bus Division.
An avid fisherman, I have extensive knowledge of Lake Pend Oreille (pronounced "pond-er-ay.") I served on the board and was President twice of the Lake Pend Oreille Idaho Club (LPOIC), a local non-profit organization dedicated to the enhancement of the fisheries and health of Lake Pend Oreille. My twenty years experience in the marine business as sales manager of a local marina and owner of Pend Oreille Marine not only contribute to my familiarity with this region's most priceless gem, but has also provided me with the skills and contacts to make your move to our neck of the woods an enjoyable and calm passage.
I am no stranger to the ski slopes, either. I have been a skier for over thirty years. There is nothing quite like spending the winter months skiing Schweitzer Mountain or snowmobiling in the mountains and gazing down on your summer playground Lake Pend Oreille, and the rest of the year boating and fishing on the lake looking up at your awesome winter playground.
Besides fishing, my passion is wildlife photography. While on the water, I always have a camera ready to capture the opportunities that our photogenic area provides. Whether it is eagles fighting over a fish, a cow moose with her calf, or spectacular panoramas, the area is a photographers’ paradise.
So, whether you're buying or selling a home, property, or a business in North Idaho, my contacts, persistence, people skills, attention to detail, and positive approach are what you need to have in your corner for a successful search, negotiation, closing, and move.
