More About Me

Hi! My name is Larissa and I love houses.

My passion is to connect people to homes; homes are so much more than shelter - they are our place of respite, our sanctuaries, our castles, and I am delighted to work to bring the two together. I was born and raised on a small island in the Puget Sound, and my mom says as a child I would often tell her my dream was to explore all the houses in the world. Needless to say, I have not achieved that goal (yet), but my curiosity has taken me to more than thirty countries around the world. I have taught violin in the Philippines, explored the unique cave dwellings of Cappadocia, Turkey, and helped to build sustainable homes on a permaculture farm in Thailand. Throughout these adventures, I have developed a deep love and respect for the cultures and people that make our built environment so wonderful.

I majored in interior design at Seattle Pacific University and since graduating have had the opportunity to work on a wide variety of projects from construction and design to curb-appeal consultant. In my free time I play the piano, hone my ceramics skills at Seward Park Clay Studio, and enjoy climbing and skiing andĀ all the other outdoor activities that the PNW has to offer. But mostly, I love to work on houses. I am a LEED Green Associate, a certified plaster installer, and trained as a home inspector. I know how to refinish floors, hang drywall, install tile, and I have a great eye for potential. Through my hands-on involvement I have gained practical knowledge of technical components, and these skills will directly reflect into my effectiveness as an agent

My goal is to assist you in realizing your dream of home ownership. You can feel confident I will do everything in my power to help you achieveĀ this dream.
