More About Me

Home Grown

Hello! Let me introduce myself. My family settled in the Northwest in 1888 and I grew up on Capitol Hill in Seattle, part of the fourth generation of Grimms with eight brothers and one sister. I attended St. Joseph School, Seattle Prep and Washington State University. I spent the early part of my working career in the restaurant/tourism business, later in the tech field and then came home to real estate. I followed my mother and two of my brothers in to this business of helping people through the transactions of buying and selling their homes. Presently, my wife and I live in "Phreelard" or on the borders of Phinney Ridge / Fremont / Ballard neighborhoods, which is in the Northwest part of Seattle.

I Work in Partnership with You and Others

I am partnered with Windermere Real Estate Co. Ballard. By law I can help you with your real estate needs anywhere in the state of Washington, but for the most part I practice real estate through a partnership with past clients who refer me to their family and friends in the northern parts of the greater Seattle-Bellevue area which also includes south Snohomish County as well. If you live outside of these areas we have a great relationship with REALTORS that practice to the same exacting standards that we employ in other parts of this state and throughout the country.

I also partner with great trades people to put the polish on your home in getting it ready for sale or to investigate a new home during the purchasing process.


Buying or selling real estate with a broker is a partnership and I believe in the concept of intra-dependence, which means that we can’t comfortably go through life without helping each other – in other words a partnership.
It's my core philosophy that it’s a good life. So, when life changes who you are, what you do or who you share it with it most people change their address. So, whom do you trust to help you in your decision making process for real estate? The smart choice is to start with the company with the largest market share in the Northwest and then add a broker and fellow agents with hundreds of years in combined experience to your team. Make it a good life with Windermere Real Estate Co. Ballard, and myself!
