About Marti

Looking around the gorgeous office my team and I work from (lovingly remodeled by my husband!) here on Kent-Kangley Road in beautiful Kent, Washington, I can’t help but feel like one of the luckiest people in the world.

I have my faith. I have my wonderful family. I have great friends. And I have a career that I still love, 16 years after it began.

I’ve always been driven by a need to solve problems. Finding solutions is to me what finding a cure for cancer might be to a doctor, or finding the perfect accessories might be to a stylist. It’s that thing that puts a smile on my face. It keeps me going. In fact, it’s what gets me out of bed each morning, excited about going to “work.”

Which is a good thing. Because, as you may have heard, real estate is a seven-day a week career, and if I wasn’t excited every morning I don’t think I’d still be here. That desire to help you is what’s also lead me to receive numerous honors and recognitions for the work I do.

But finding solutions and making complex situations appear simple isn’t the only thing I’m passionate about. My local community fills my heart with joy.

Like most of us, my family and I have faced our share of challenges in life. Without the resources offered by this community we would not have benefited from the positive outcomes we enjoyed. That’s why involvement with organizations such as Kent Hope (a woman’s day shelter) and Young Life (which reaches out to teens to give them a place to feel welcome, accepted and have fun) are so very important to me.

About The Team

“Behind every successful person is a dedicated team, who are experts in their own right.”

That’s certainly the case with my business! My team is a “Goldilocks” team: We’re not so big that you’ll feel lost, and not so small that we can’t address every single one of your wants and needs. Instead, we’re that “just right” size. Take a moment to meet my success squad. Without these individuals, I couldn’t offer you the outstanding client experience I’ve become known for.
