Serving Home Sellers and Buyers since 2000






Our goal is to ensure that YOU earn the maximum profit for the sale of your home, without leaving any money on the table.

To do this, we establish a comprehensive marketing plan that includes:

  • optimally preparing your property both inside (staging) and outside (landscaping)
  • determining correct list pricing
  • developing property advertising via social media outlets (Instagram, Facebook, MailChimp, LinkedIn, SnapChat)
  • establishing public and broker's open house schedules
  • setting an effective offer review deadline.

The majority of our listings sell for significantly above list price as a result of these combined efforts.


In this competitive climate, multiple offers are the norm.  Trust our tried and true strategies that set our clients apart from other buyers.  We typically win in multiple offer situations as a result.  It's NOT all about the highest offer price, there are many other techniques to consider to ensure you are the winning buyer.  Our goal is to help you win a home that is within your price range so that you can maintain the lifestyle that best serves you and your loved ones.

Kristin and Joyce are an excellent mother and daughter team! Their combined knowledge of Seattle neighborhoods, communicativeness, responsiveness, friendliness and professionalism made our home selling and buying experience a much better experience than we expected it to be. Kristin was always available regardless of our challenging schedules and truly went the extra mile when it came time to make an offer.  We cant thank them enough and will recommend them to anyone we know who is considering entering the challenging Seattle real estate market.

Kristin & Joyce were both so very helpful to our family at a time of difficulty with a sale involving an estate distribution. They put our family at ease with their warmth, confidence and with an expedited sale that was hassle free for all of us.

Managing Broker

I have a genuine interest in, and concern for, the wide variety of people that I serve and I derive great satisfaction in seeing my clients move forward in life, getting from where they are now to where they want to be. Many times this calls on my unique blend of tenacity coupled with a caring, human touch, taking the stress out of what can be one of life's most emotional events.

My clients often compliment and thank me for utilizing my keen negotiation skills and my great attention to detail.  I go above and beyond for my clients, managing the details so they get optimal results.

I grew up in Spokane Washington until I moved to Seattle to attend the University of Washington. I have lived and owned property in Greenlake, Eastlake and Wallingford. I am raising my two sons in Seattle and have gleaned an extensive knowledge of the cities unique neighborhoods, "hot spots", schools and amenities.

I enjoy my work a great deal. In fact, I love what I do. I listen and listen some more. It`s simple, but it`s service. I believe in organization, enthusiasm, and a sense of humor. I also believe in staying current and utilizing all of the latest real estate technology available today: the Internet, modern real estate marketing programs and advance web sites

Knowledge is power. I educate my clients on what they need to know about buying and selling. I lead them through the entire process, managing expectations every step of the way. I am an excellent negotiator and do whatever it takes to create an extraordinary experience for my clients. I always ask myself, “How can I best serve my client?” This is my anchor question that I ask myself throughout our entire relationship. It is about getting what you want in a home, not what I want

When you’re happy, I know I’ve done my job well. I focus and listen to you. No matter where you are in life, I can work to find the perfect home for your needs. Your home buying or selling experience should be one of the most exciting times of your life. I take away the stress of the transaction, so you can enjoy it and focus on you and your family.

Spending time with my family is the best part of my life. Although I love my career, my family is number 1. I have 4 wonderful kids (3 daughters and son) and brace yourself, 10 GRANDKIDS!! Two of my girls are graduates from the University of Washington, and my other two graduated from WSU. As you can guess, APPLECUP is a dynamic event in our household!!
