More About Me

My 20+ years serving buyers and sellers is founded on a passion for design, marketing and excellence in all things real estate.  Core values such as authenticity, relentless pursuit of client goals and catering to each family’s unique needs bring reward and success for all.   I’ve helped hundreds of Northwest families through time-tested expertise with in-depth pricing analysis, premium presentations, robust marketing campaigns, efficient transaction/project management and strong yet cordial negotiations.  And last but not least is getting over the finish line with listings selling on average at 103.58% of list price.  Always with the goal of making the process easy and fun for clients.


Certified Residential Specialist (CRS)
The prestigious Certified Residential Specialist designation is the highest credential awarded to sales agents, managers and brokers, representing the top 1% of agents and top 3% of Realtors nationally.  I have met rigorous educational, production and experiential qualifications to earn the CRS designation.

At Home With Diversity Certification - National Assoc of Realtors


“I've been reflecting on all that was accomplished in getting our Issaquah home ready for market and then being able to sell it.  We owe Paula (and Peter) a lot of thanks for making this all go as smoothly as it did.  Her upbeat, positive attitude, professional assessments and resources were a real blessing for us as we traversed this unfamiliar territory of downsizing and selling our home of many years.”      Ginny E., Seller

“Paula was great. She was amazingly helpful in all aspects of our engagement.  The collateral she prepared was top notch, and she always made sure everything was in perfect order for showings and open houses.   On the business side, she always made sure we understood everything being presented to us, and when it came time to accept an offer, she presented us with all of the options so we could make a great decision.  We highly recommend Paula!”   Kurt S., Seller

“We have used Paula now on 5 different transactions.  She has been superb on all accounts, both selling & purchasing!   She did all negotiations, and follow through was excellent.  She is very thorough from start to finish. She was open to suggestions as well.  She staged our home beautifully and received a full price offer.”    Alan K., Seller

"I found Paula absolutely delightful to work with. Her knowledge is extensive, she's very patient, and her guidance was clear. I'll be recommending her to everyone I know who is looking to buy (or sell) a house. I'll definitely be working with her again in the future!"    Derek C., Buyer
