As one of the top-selling real estate teams in Northwest Washington, our integrity and experience will give you the edge you need. With our track record and industry knowledge, we can masterfully service any and all of our client’s needs in a way that no stand-alone agent can. We have taken the “jack of all trades and master of none” out of the most important purchase or sale you will likely make in your lifetime.
We are a solutions based organization with a drive to succeed at a high level. Our mission is to build a company that impacts the quality of life for our clients, our team, and our families. We believe that hard work produces extraordinary results, and our team's success is determined by our ability to put people first, always. This mission speaks directly to our big "WHY" and our partnership with the Homes For Heroes program.
As a veteran owned and operated organization, we are passionate about giving back to the Heroes that serve and sacrifice so much for our community every single day. That includes Firefighters/EMS, Law Enforcement, Military (past & present), Healthcare Professionals, and Teachers. Since 2016, we have helped over 600 heroes in their real estate transactions. That is over $2 million dollars from our commissions given directly to our heroes.
This program is our way of saying thank you to those that don't hear it nearly enough.
Through our experience, we have learned that buying and selling real estate coincides with big changes in our clients' lives. Whether it's a growing family, relocation, downsizing, retirement, or another stage in life, we are there with you through the challenging times. The result? We become more than just your real estate agent, we actually become friends. Your goals become our goals, we celebrate your success, and we always keep in touch. And we love it because our excitement comes from creating life-long relationships. Now more than ever, who you work with matters, and we look forward to earning your trust and future business!
