I have been in the real estate industry for 28 years. I acquired my license at the ripe age of 18, and joined the family real estate business in Lahaina, Maui in 1983, and worked there for 18 years. I left as principal broker of Sullivan Properties in June 2002. Looking for a lifestyle change, we packed up and moved to Bend in 2002. As of the end of 2013, I closed over 120 transactions in Central Oregon, representing over $55 million dollars in sales with an average price over $500,000.
