Engaging and charismatic, Kurt serves as a key relationship builder at Coldstream. Joining the team in 2012, Kurt transitioned away from his previous life in the legal field. An Alaska native, Kurt practiced law in the area of estate planning, advising affluent Northwest families in all areas of estate and gift planning, trust administration, and charitable planning. Kurt began his legal career in mortgage banking law at Routh Crabtree Olsen, P.S. and holds a Juris Doctor (J.D.) from Seattle University School of Law. Kurt also obtained his undergraduate degree in Biology from Taylor University in Upland, Indiana.
Kurt enjoys volunteering regularly with Seattle Children’s Hospital and Union Gospel Mission. He lives in the Maple Leaf neighborhood of Seattle with his wife and three daughters and enjoys the local sports scene, traveling, and running around Green Lake.
The deep relational side of Coldstream is what initially drew me to this firm and the industry. The idea that I could serve a smaller list of families in a much deeper way and truly take my time in bringing them value – that’s why I’m here.
