I am the realtor I would want for myself: A full-time, full-service professional who anticipates possible obstacles while being proactive and highly responsive to her clients during the process. One who is grounded, candid, knowledgeable, thoughtful, and resourceful while making the process fun and personal. I purposely keep my active client list modest so I can be more responsive to each of my client’s needs. If you would like to hear what past clients have to say, you can read some testimonials here.
Both born and educated at the UW, with my first job at the Pike Place Market, I am a true Seattle native. But one with perspective gained by later years living in cities such as New York, Miami, and San Diego. Now permanently settled back in my hometown and living in Ballard, I happily work in the “family business,” my brother being a long-time Windermere broker himself and my father the former General Superintendent of Sellen Construction.
Because animal welfare, habitat conservation and the environment are my passion, a portion of every commission goes to at least one of these charities:
A wonderful local sanctuary with comprehensive programs addressing animal welfare. Established in 1997 in honor of a special donkey named Pasado, we are a non-profit on a mission to end animal cruelty.
Working in concert with regional, national and global offices of The Nature Conservancy; their mission is to conserve all the lands and waters upon which all life depends.
The IAPF was founded in 2009 and operates in southern and East Africa. The focus of the organization is ecosystem preservation through a community-driven conservation program, empowering disadvantaged women to restore and manage networks of wilderness areas.
"Amy is great! She listens to what your preferences are and even when you are not sure yourself she patiently lets the process unfold until you do. She is very easy to communicate with and quick to return your every call. Also is very knowledgeable about the real estate market and advises you the trends. But most importantly Amy is a good person which makes the work that much better."
"We bought our first home with Amy, and couldn't have been happier with choosing to go with her. She made the whole process easy for us, taking care of things before we even new we needed it. We put in offers on multiple homes, did multiple inspections, multiple viewings so had the chance to work closely with her on finding our perfect home. Could not recommend her more."
"Amy was our agent in the sale of our Seattle home and we knew we were in a competent agent's hands each step of the way. I would highly recommend Amy to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Seattle area market, without hesitation. Your search for an all-around fantastic realtor ends here."
"Amy walked my fiancé and I through the process of buying our first home, and we could not be happier. She has been extremely responsive throughout the process, from looking at homes to negotiating our offers to helping close. We felt like her only clients, even though I am sure she is very busy. Going into the process, we knew very little about buying a home, and were intimidated by the Seattle housing market. Amy made the process painless, quick, and straightforward. Putting in an offer was particularly daunting for me. Amy was able to walk me through all the contingencies and clauses in such a way that I felt as comfortable as one could be in this crazy market. She never pressured me to do anything that I was not comfortable with, and I felt she was a great advocate through the negotiation process. We would use Amy again without any hesitation. "
"Amy helped me sell my home and purchase my current home. She is both professional and tireless, truly knocking herself out for me. The sale: Amy was very strategic about pricing, marketing and timing, such that the eventual purchase price exceeded the list price by a nice margin. The purchase: Amy is very good at finding and using client-friendly digital tools as well, which helped me shop for the new house with her and independently of her. So if I were looking again for a real estate agent, I would want one like her, who is both good and hardworking."
