Broker, Licensed in Oregon
Growing up in western Michigan, the son of two factory workers (one of whom later became a practicing Realtor), it was likely inevitable that Nate would find his way to being a real estate broker.
In Nate’s case, a stint kayaking, skiing and (one could argue incidentally) receiving a Bachelors of Science in Geography from Montana State University led him to land in the Columbia River Gorge.
As the Columbia Gorge will, it forced Nate into a level of occupational creativity. In 2004 he helped found a now 15 year old coffee bar in downtown Hood River - Dog River Coffee (of which he is now sole owner). The impetus for creating Dog River Coffee was to offer a venue in which all members of the community could gather, chat, feel safe, work and enjoy high quality coffee. You can still find him there behind the bar serving up a cup of go juice many days of the week.
Through his involvement with Dog River Coffee, Nate was asked to apply for a voluntary position on the Hood River City Planning Commission. This led to two terms of service. During his tenure on the Planning Commission, housing was one of the most often discussed topics.
While he was on the Planning Commission, Nate noted that a number of his employees were beginning to start families and grow deeper roots in our community. He saw an opportunity to help them navigate what can be an overwhelming and sometimes difficult journey - that of purchasing or selling a home. He knew the time was right to jump in and pursue a career in Real Estate. Modeling himself after his father - Nate offers a high level of integrity, transparency and great service to all of his clients. He is ready to help you with all of your real estate needs.
