Roy is the best agent in the business. It was by pure luck that we found him. We just asked to see a house, that was listed on Zillow, and he was the agent that responded. The first house we viewed our son ran up and hugged Roy, the minute we stepped out of the car. That was a sign. Everything was amazing. Roy is smart, honest, friendly, efficient and treats you like family. We not only found a house we made a life long friend.

Roy brings an impressive mix of professionalism and a comprehensive approach to the business. I've worked with a wide variety of realtors over the years, and Roy stood out as the best of them all. He is upfront and fair with his promises about your home's true market value and how to unlock the highest value. He brings a comprehensive approach from market assessment, home preparation, staging, professional photography, and even post-sale cleaning.

Relocating halfway around the country, my wife and I had only a week's visit to learn the area, understand the market, and find a place to live. Roy accomplished it all in only four days. His intimate knowledge of the region, sense of humor, and real estate acumen make him an excellent advocate to have on your side.

Mark and Denise L.

If there's an agent that you want to work with full confidence and trust, then it is Roy. He takes home buying personally. He works on the case as if it is his own. We took a U-turn on buying a home at the last moment. Other agents would have shown their anguish.. Roy - No. He was still the same smiling figure, ready to help make the right decision. And we bought a fantastic home through him. Thank you Roy!

Roy always took the time to explain anything we asked of him and his knowledge of local real estate was incredible. My wife and I knew we could always depend on him and he always available to us. He is a patient, smart, dependable, and honest person to deal with. We always felt Roy was looking out for our best interests: we never pressured or that he recommended property that we weren't interested in. Also, as a veteran, I used the VA loan program, which is much stricter than a traditional loan and Roy was well versed in how to navigate that as well.

Robert and Regina C.

Excellent all around knowledge of everything we needed to know about the process and areas of interest. We found Roy's excellent network of contacts (maintenance, landscaping etc) a huge help as well.

Sha and Aarthy E.

As first time home-buyers, the process seemed intimidating at first. Roy helped us navigate through each and every step and in doing so alleviated a lot of our concerns. He was very patient with all over questions and proved himself to be very knowledgeable and experienced. We would definitely call Roy again in the future and we would recommend him to our friends and family.

Shelby and Grant Z.

I first seen my daughter and son in law hire Roy to sell and buy their new house. I was so impressed and felt his loyalty that when I decided to look for a new home I had no question that I would ask Roy to help me. He allowed me to take my time to ensure my decision was right for me.

Kathy E.

We recently relocated from out of state and only had a few days to find a house. He contacted us early on to discuss all of our needs and wants, and began sending us homes that he believed we would be interested in. As we looked at the homes online and gave him feedback he would refine our search and truly got a feel for what we really wanted. He educated us on all of the neighborhoods, laws in the area, things to do, schools...

Eric and Melissa S.

He was always available by phone or text, and kept us updated throughout the entire buying process. He was very flexible and accommodating with us wanting to see multiple homes, even at the last minute. Due to his expansive network, he was able to keep us in the loop about new opportunities that we may have otherwise missed.

North Bend Resources


Though not incorporated until 1909, early explorers started calling this place home in the 1850’s. Spacious grasslands beckoned to be tilled and rewarded its farmers with plentiful orchards and crops. The little town went through several name changes in its early years, starting with Snoqualmie Prairie Acres and Mountain View before settling on North Bend (sparked by the fact that the South Fork of the Snoqualmie River takes a “north bend” near the town’s center). By the 1880’s, the little town had built up their community with stores, restaurants, and travel lodges to accommodate exhausted trekkers heading across Snoqualmie Pass to or from Central and Eastern Washington.


North Bend is a naturally expedient location for year-round activities of all kinds. Summer hiking and biking trails are endless, including the popular Mt. Si Trail, a steep 8-mile hike with incredible views – once you reach the peak at 4,000 feet! Nearby winter snow sports are plentiful and in line with those found at world-class peaks. The Summit at Snoqualmie offers inner tubing fun for the whole family, ski and snowboarding lessons, as well as a myriad of employment opportunities for those snow lovers who really just can’t get enough of it.
