Bainbridge Island and Me

There’s no place like Bainbridge Island. Almost like stepping back into a by-gone era, life takes on a special meaning. Time slows down. You stop to chat with your neighbors. You get to know your children’s teachers on a first name basis. Why, just strolling down Winslow Way becomes a social event. Tucked quietly away, our self-sufficient island offers an abundance of cultural and recreational activities – beachcombing, festivals, art galleries, wineries, boating – just to name a few. Enjoy the excitement of the big city? A quick 35-minute ferry ride across the sparkling waters of Puget Sound brings you to the thriving metropolis of Seattle. You’ll find everything at your fingertips – first-class shopping, skiing, ballgames, exquisite dining, fine arts, and a vibrant job market.
In 1993, my family and I pulled up stakes after over 20 years in the San Franciso Bay Area and headed toward Seattle. With a sailboat, a high schooler and a toddler in tow, our priorities were clear. We quickly discovered Bainbridge Island. Award-winning schools. Friendly and intellectual community. Unsurpassed rural, natural beauty. We were hooked… and home. I launched my real estate career just a few years later. To this day, I consider it a privilege to work with such a wonderful, caring community... and the strongest and most ethical real estate company in the Northwest.
