Tom spent 25 years in the construction industry working different aspects of the trade: project management, project development in the electrical industry and technical sales both domestically and internationally. During those years, he remodeled and sold a home and built many fences, decks and built-ins both for friends and family. In 2001, he began to learn the art of fine furniture making. Tom has sold dozens of pieces to private parties and galleries. Clients can attest to his hard work and skill.
Abby owned and operated a small lawn care and handyman business after college. That path eventually lead her to Los Angeles where she became a real estate appraiser and ran her own real estate appraisal company. Using the knowledge she gained as an appraiser, it was a natural to buy and sell homes and invest in multi-family housing. And because she is hands-on, kitchens and bathrooms were gutted; floors, walls and showers were tiled; and miles of walls were painted. Not only does Abby have an eye and a vision for making a house a home, but she knows what will bring value in the marketplace.

We are a large blended family living in the heart of Cedar Mill. We have six boys and one big giant doggie. The boys range in age from 9 to 18 and attend Bonny Slope Elementary, Cedar Park Middle School, Sunset High School and PCC. Yes, it is crazy...our home is filled with nonsense and laughter and love. I like to say it is deliciously chaotic.
If you see us around town, perhaps at the grocery store, Sunset Athletic Club or at one of the schools. Come say hello, we’d love to meet you. And if you are ready to take the next step give us a call, 503-780-0554. Or…click LET’S GET STARTED! where you can tell us about your project and upload photos. Let us know how you would like to be contacted and we will be in touch.
