Devin Has more than 22 years selling residential properties in Washington. He is accustomed to collaborating with affluent Individuals and understands the value of confidentiality and discretion. He holds the CLHMS Designation as a Guild Member of the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing and is an Accredited Buyer Representative. Devin is a skilled and powerful negotiator continuously striving to obtain the best possible outcome for his clients.


Born in Seattle and raised in Snohomish and King Counties, he has a comprehensive knowledge of the local cities and towns, along with a strong familiarity of Western Washington in general.


Devin was the youngest of seven children and was unusually tidy, organized and driven as an adolescent. He understood if you want something you have to work for it yourself. He negotiated contracts of steady work to sweep parking lots and sidewalks for local business at the age of eight years old, earning over 100 dollars per month in the 60’s. At the age of 12, he began public speaking courses and cultivated a “silver tongue” as family and friends often touted. After graduation, these traits afforded him a 17-year successful sales career prior to joining Windermere in 1999 where he became a top two producer his first year. In 2003, Devin joined the nation’s largest privately held home builder where he gained an in-depth knowledge of the new home construction process, received several regional sales awards, and elevated to the position of Designated Broker and Lead Community Representative. He returned to the resale industry in 2010 and spent several consecutive years as the #1 volume Broker among five Preview Property branches, a large Snohomish County Brokerage. He’s received the Five Star Professional Award appearing in Seattle Magazine for 10 consecutive years and has been named a Five Star Legend for 2022.


Client satisfaction is Devin’s highest priority measuring his success by how well he serves others. Devin is admired by his clients, as well as his peers, for his project management, work ethic and uncompromising integrity, hallmarks of his stellar reputation.


When he has time for himself, Devin loves movies, tinkering around the home fixing whatever needs attention, cooking and yard games with family, gardening, and riding his lawn tractor. As a former Bodybuilder, Powerlifter and Karate competitor, Devin enjoys keeping fit in his well-equipped home Gym. When he ventures out, he loves spending time boating in the San Juan Islands or traveling in his motorhome sight-seeing and discovering new destinations.
