My Real Estate story stretches back to when I was 8 years old driving with my father to take Polaroid photos of his real estate listings in rural Vermont. Like my father, my work ethic and honest, straight dealings with clients and colleagues keeps my schedule full. Also like my father, I’m a born 'Horse Trader'. Anyone can close a simple transaction; I read people and situations and get deals done despite difficult personalities and scenarios - and I love every minute of it. My office is located in Port Townsend, but my business spans evenly throughout East Jefferson County. I know every back road in the county, and a lot of the stories that go along with them. If something needs to get done, people call me to find out who to call.
I always go the extra mile to make sure my clients are being taken care of in the same manner I would want a member of my own family to be cared for. Buying and selling a home can be a difficult and sometimes frustrating process. It can also be a very gratifying one too! Over the past 15 years, my clients have found that my ability to keep a level head and work through issues in a non-aggressive, solution-based approach with the opposite party makes the process of a home or land purchase a pleasurable one. I take pride in my positive attitude and tenacious problem solving. I can 'Get it done'. If there is a roadblock that can be solved, I WILL find the way.
I take great pride in exceeding my clients expectations of a real estate professional.
I am a graduate of the University of New Hampshire with a double major in Humanities and Psychology. After graduating, I worked for 4 years in the financial services industry in the Boston area. In 1998 I moved to Port Townsend and exercised my life-long love of woodworking as a professional boat builder for 5 years before starting my career in real estate. In 2004 my wife and I purchased 20 acres on Eaglemount Road in Chimacum and proceeded to clear a two-acre homestead that first winter with two chainsaws and a small tractor. The next year we built our own home by hand and moved in. My wife is the owner of Nicole Fox Bookkeeping and a graduate of Luther College with a degree in English. In 2009 we had our first child, Samuel Garfield Fox and in 2014, our second son Thomas Branford Fox. Today, my free time is filled with outdoor adventures with my sons (currently ages 6 and 11). Our 20 acres is a little boy’s playground with a salmon stream, treehouses and zip-lines to fill the days.
This is my "Go-Time” in life, so my business keeps us close to home... We make sure our land is a happy, fun place to be and truly appreciate why this beautiful area of the Pacific Northwest is such a draw to so many people, young and young-at-heart.
I am a native Washingtonian, born in Forks and raised in Port Townsend. Previously I worked in the title and escrow industry for 16 years wearing several different hats, including title officer and office manager.
I have been working as a licensed real estate assistant at Windermere since 2010. I joined forces with Jim Fox as his personal assistant and transaction/listing coordinator in 2013.
I have an extensive knowledge of the area and local real estate. Every transaction has its own unique set of questions and demands and I enjoy working on all the behind-the-scenes research and paperwork that goes into each one.
I have 3 children, ages 26, 18 and 10. When I’m not hard at work in the office I enjoy working in and around my home in Port Townsend, and spending time with my family.
