Each year I backpack to remote places on the planet. On my journeys I have trekked among ancient Sri Lanka sacred temples, beaches and indigenous Veddah cuture, explored remote post-tsunami Aceh Province, Batak culture, orangutans, komodo dragons and the origin of the best coffee on earth on Sumatra and Flores Island-Indonesia, visited incredible tribal festivals in off the grid NE India, navigated Bangladesh tiger-infested swamps in the Sunderbans, lived alone for ten days with the Waorani native tribe in the Amazon Jungle of Ecuador, traversed the lemur-filled rain forests and baobab jungles of Madagascar, rockclimbed Hat Raileh, Thailand on amazing jagged limestone cliffs that rise above the Andaman Sea, journeyed around Tanzania, Zanzibar and Morocco, hitchhiked just for fun from Sapporo to Shiretoko National Park in the far north of Hokkaido, Japan, canoed in to live with the Embera Tribe in the Panama Darien Jungle and had an amazing walkabout in the Rupununi area of Guyana and jungles of Suriname. I speak Spanish to some real estate clients, discuss trips to Africa with others. These journeys recharge my spirits and help me have interesting and genuine connections with people I work with.

Client Testimonial: Susannah & Aashish Dhamdhere, "Our realtor Vince is a very unique person who made our homebuying experience as enjoyable and stress free as possible. From the first time we visited, he embraced with vigor the needs of our family and provided us with an excellent variety of home options, often seeming to know about the best listings even before they reached the market! He wasn't afraid to give us objectively honest assessments of the benefits and drawbacks of each home and neighborhood, and at no point did we feel pressured or pushed in any direction. Vince possesses a wealth of knowledge of Seattle and Eastside communities, transportation, restaurants and real estate. Within 10 days, he had helped us locate our dream home, truly saving us time and money. His warm personality also put the sellers at ease immediately, and he chose the exact approach to help us get the house for the price we wanted. Vince is a diligent worker, a gifted communicator and was extremely responsive to our needs and questions. During evenings, weekends and holidays, he worked tirelessly to move our purchase process along. Vince went above and beyond in representing our needs all the way through to the end: he was not only literally by our side during the financing, inspection and settlement phases, but he also helped us connect with contractors, served as a furniture broker between us and the sellers, and came up with creative win-win solutions when any challenging issues arose in the transaction. We greatly benefited from his honesty, warmth and sense of humor, and we would highly recommend him to anyone. Thanks Vince!"
