I am a Seattle-area residential real estate specialist with the Lake Union office of Coldwell Banker Bain. With nearly 30 years of experience in real estate sales, non-profit management, marketing, social work, customer service, and community development, I have the expertise you are looking for in a real estate broker. And I love what I do: nothing satisfies me more than seeing the smiles that come with a successful real estate transaction.
I currently reside in Phinney Ridge with my son, though I have lived in various Seattle neighborhoods since moving here in 1992. My first home was a condo in Magnolia, where I was active in my homeowner's association, including stints as treasurer and president. Since that time, I have also owned homes in the Meadowbrook and Queen Anne communities.
I know Seattle inside and out, and community leadership and activism are important to me. I am involved with a number of community organizations, including FamilyWorks, Childrens Hospital, and the Central Area Senior Center. Prior to becoming a real estate broker, I worked in non-profit management at Wallingford Boys & Girls Club, the Women’s Funding Alliance, Seattle Youth Involvement Network, Hilltop Children's Center, and Big Sisters of King County. I also worked as a consultant with several other non-profits focused on the well-being of children, families, and women in our community.
I love exploring Seattle’s many unique neighborhoods, farmers markets, arts and crafts festivals, and cultural events. I am also an avid photographer, reader, beach lover, and traveler. The most incredible place I have ever traveled is the Galapagos Islands, which offers unparalleled natural beauty and wildlife.
I am a Certified Residential Specialist, a member of the National Association of Realtors, Washington Realtors, and Seattle/King County Realtors, as well as the Northwest Multiple Listing Service. I look forward to assisting you with all your Seattle-area real estate needs.
Jamie was a tremendous help in the sale of our home in Wallingford. We learned that this is infinitely more complicated than selling a bike on Craigslist. She brought us calendar alternatives, vendor phone numbers, and general organizational tools to make the whole process run smoothly. Everything happened as planned. Nothing was an emergency.
The open houses went smoothly and we received several offers. The ultimate selling price was at the top of our expectations. The results speak volumes about Jamie’s skills and hard work.
We also worked with Jamie to find a new home. She crafted an offer on very short notice that was accepted only hours later. Without her diligence, we would have missed this home. Buyer or seller, we would recommend Jamie in a heartbeat.
We worked with Jamie for about 4 months while searching for our first house as a young couple. We had a set budget in mind and knew the area we wanted to live in, but did not know much about the home buying process. Jamie, from the beginning, was not only quick to respond to our questions, but sought out houses that matched our style and showed us some that had potential. We ended up putting down several offers on various houses and my husband and I both felt like Jamie was quick to put together the offers and was not afraid to negotiate for our terms. She is a fun, knowledgeable and trustworthy person to work with and we never felt any pressure to buy a house that wasn't exactly what we were looking for. When we finally found the perfect house for us, Jamie worked with our lender to get us a quick closing date so we could move in ASAP. We would definitely recommend Jamie to our family and friends who are looking to buy or sell their home and look forward to working with her again in the future!
My first time buying experience was far easier & faster than I expected, and that was due in part to Jamie's help. Jamie is a very proactive and knowledgeable agent who will anticipate your needs & wants to bring you viable options within your price range and other parameters. Her online process for collecting and organizing homes to consider made it very easy for me to preview online and decide which places to visit. Visiting numerous homes in one day was not a problem for Jamie. She seemed to have plenty of time and I never felt rushed. She is also very responsive to emails, texts and calls at all hours of the day and evening. I felt very at ease with Jamie throughout the whole process and was very comfortable asking her any and all questions relating to the process and paperwork. I highly recommend Jamie as a buyer's agent as she seems to really enjoy her work. The enthusiasm she brought to the process made things a little more fun and exciting.
Jamie couldn't have been more helpful to us in our search, and ultimate purchase, of a house in Fremont. She was always available to show any home we had the slightest interest in and helped us put together several offers, eventually enabling us to purchase the perfect home! Jamie was there every step of the way, before, during and after the purchase. Highest recommendation; we'll definitely seek her help in the future.”
I was very pleased to be able to work with Jamie. She is an exceptional person and has great integrity in dealing with people.
