You’ve all heard the good news – as of January we will officially merge our six offices and become one – Windermere Real Estate Co. – and what I informally yet enthusiastically like to refer to as the super six.
Ballard + Eastlake + Madison Park + Northgate + Sand Point + Wedgwood.
What I’d like you to know about this merger….I for one wouldn’t dare take on this role as Designated Broker without the partnership of great people – you, OB, Jill, our leadership team & our staff. Your manager is still your go-to. Think of me as that added layer of support along the way (and yes, the one who would need to put ink to paper anywhere required by a “Designated Broker” – very few circumstances). Jill & OB remain a key additional layer of support as well to you (and heck, me!). What was messaged this past week is how we’ve been operating for some time now. Bottom-line, it becomes official January 1st!
Ink it! | Save the date > January 23rd 2017 – It’s just around the corner, I can’t believe it. We are excited to begin promoting the focus and format of our six office Kick Off event. A quick run-down of how the day together is shaping up – think “TED talk” style – inspired by our people. A quick rundown of the day, so far…and who will be sharing their “Ideas Worth Spreading“…

Jordan, Rob, Steve, Michael, Dave, Ob & Jill must be jealous of our field trip! A few shots from our modern Willi Wonka tour with a twist of Laverne & Shirley in style…
Selfie by the girls!
They read “sweet” on the choco-meter!
Our little nibs testing out actual “nibs” – bitter!
