Owner and Founder of LUXE Christie’s International Real Estate, the exclusive affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate for Oregon and Washington. Exclusive Affiliate of SportStar Relocation Oregon.
My family and I are based in Lake Oswego, Oregon. My wife and I relocated from the West Indies, the Island of Antigua, approximately 10 years ago to be closer to aging parents. We purchased our home in Lake Oswego, Oregon and are proud to have two wonderful daughters currently attending Our Lady of the Lake elementary in downtown Lake Oswego.
My first position was with a wonderful regional company called Windemere. Within my first year I became the number one producer in my marketplace and continued to perform strongly while with Windermere and then Sotheby’s International Realty. As the economy adjusted I recognized the need to have access to national and international consumers.
“I have consistently ranked as one of the top 10 brokers in the State of Oregon, for successfully sold Listing and closed transactions representing buyers of high end properties. Our office is typically ranked in the top two or three offices in the state for closing high-end properties.
We are a true boutique, full-service Real Estate company, serving clients around the world. We specialize in delivering a concierge based experience complimented by the highest definition of Real Estate advice, local knowledge and unsurpassed regional and Global Marketing.

We take the time to discover how we can best serve the one-of-a-kind needs of every client. And, we rely on our extensive resources and experience to provide a distinct level of expertise. We pride ourselves in giving a concierge service to each individual client.
We specialize in working with families relocating to Portland, I am referred often to new executives and athletes with the NBA, Nike, local Health organizations and other entrepreneurial local companies. Most importantly I listen to the needs of the family and after assisting many families in transition, I have learned the importance of being a partner in the process of starting in a new community.
