Rod knows The Market

Rod consistently and carefully monitors the Real Estate market using a variety of technologies and independent, third-party resources. This benefits his clients by giving accurate, up-to-the-minute snapshots of the market. His clients are able to make clear, informed decisions based on current facts and trends, not on information from last month or last year.

Rod and Bremerton

Rod is unapologetically enthusiastic when it comes to his primary market area, Bremerton. Bremerton has come a long way since 2000. While the city still has room for improvement, it continues as one of the most remarkable Real Estate values in the central Puget Sound region. As Rod says, "We put down our roots, build our lives, and can have a real and lasting positive impact in our community. The natural beauty is incredible. The people are diverse. We have our challenges, but it is incredibly exciting to take part in the vitality of this wonderful place!"
