I am a long time resident of Northern Idaho having made my home here in 2001 after serving in the United States Army for 21 Years. Originally from Grass Valley California, a small Town in the Sierra Nevada foothills, I enjoy sailing, fishing, photography and the long time companionship of my best friend and wife of 26 years Aafke Murdock. We've traveled, rode motorcycles, owned sports cars, scuba dived, snorkeled, taken pictures, remodeled our home, sailed, and now have a small Real Estate Business. We enjoy challenges and the next adventure.
We believe in community involvement. I am a member of the Rathdrum American Legion where I serve on the Honor Guard. We regularly participate in fundraising activities to support the local community, Classical Christian Academy, Catholic Charities, Camp Journey just to name a few.
A philosophy of service and friendship. – I conduct my business as a service oriented partnership with my friends and customers. One sale at a time without taking on too many customers. In fact I often say that my idea of service goals is not to serve the most customers but to serve my few customers in the best possible manner. This allows me to provide the responsiveness and quality of care to each transaction that I would want for myself.
Mission statements – Service from one who has served. A goal and statement based on the dedication to country, community, and friendships.
I started Real Estate as a way to take control of my life after having worked in Personnel Placement and Rehabilitation, Executive Operations Management, Workers Compensation Field Consultation, and Safety Management coordinating with OSHA, and DEQ. Prior to my various careers as a civilian I was a U.S. Army Warrant Officer where I served worldwide as a maintenance test pilot for Attack, Observation, and Cargo Helicopters.
