More About Me
Experience and KnowledgeMorgan began his real estate career in November of 1984. In 1988 he obtained a managing brokers license and with a partner purchased an existing real estate office. The housing industry has changed dramatically since 1984 and those changes have required brokers to adapt and continue to obtain further education to remain an expert in their field. For 32 years Morgan has remained an expert and has worked primarily in the Lake Chelan area, having sold many properties more than once. Being involved in many land use and zoning issues over the years has kept him abreast of City, County and State issues that affect private property rights and value. Joining the Windermere office in Chelan in 2013 has opened up many opportunities for additional education, networking and marketing.
Creating ValueStarting real estate developments in 1995 for his own account and project management for clients Morgan has an extensive background in residential and recreational projects. The ability to bring a project from concept to closing is both creative and challenging and requires both expertise and patience. Through the process of development his clients have been able create both equity and cash flow. Morgan has helped clients subdivide land, build and covert condominiums, change zoning/comprehensive plans, text amendments to allow certain land uses and a variety of other activities to create value. Determining the highest and best use is where we start and understanding the process and all the challenges is what sets us apart from the rest of the herd.
