Raised in Kirkland Washington, Steve attended school on the eastside until attending Bishop Blanchet High School in the North Seattle Wallingford neighborhood. As results of this background, Steve has firm roots and excellent local knowledge both of the entire Eastside, and west side of the Lake, especially Ballard, Green Lake and North Seattle.
After graduating from high school, Steve went on to serve his country by enlisting in the United States Marine Corps during a time of war, including three combat tours in Iraq, during the second of which he was wounded by an enemy hand grenade. Steve was honorably discharged from the military in 2007.
Realizing firsthand the difficulty of transitioning from a war time environment to civilian life, Steve now gives back to Veterans by serving as Seattle chapter president of VAREP, the Veterans Association of Real Estate Professionals (www.varep.net).
After his military service and before beginning his career in real estate, Steve continued to serve as a Corrections Officer at Monroe Correctional Complex in the Snohomish County city of Monroe. The time spent working at the prison gave Steve excellent practical knowledge of Monroe and the surrounding areas of Snohomish County.
