  • Referrals - Local and Out-of-Area  -  80% of my business comes from clients and their friends/families.  When a move is planned outside of Seattle, I have access to top brokers around the country and the globe through Leading Real Estate Companies of the World.  I love to interview other Certified Residential Specialists to find the best real estate brokers for your friends.
