Being born and raised in Milton, WA, Colby is deeply rooted in the Puget Sound area. He went to Fife High School and his first job was working for his father’s residential construction company. Helping his dad build custom homes day after day (and of course both parents constantly watching HGTV) is where Colby’s passion for real estate began. After graduation, he moved to Pullman and majored in Finance at Washington State University. While there, Colby served as Assistant Director of Cougar Choice Housing, where he inspected and certified quality property management companies to help students avoid the awful ones. All these experiences led Colby to becoming a Real Estate Agent, and he loves helping clients make exciting and informed decisions!
