When Windermere first opened its doors in 1972, it was a one-office operation in Northeast Seattle. Since then, we have grown to more than 300 offices in 10 states throughout the Western U.S. We are truly, and proudly, a regional company. In that same vein, Windermere Living started as a Pacific Northwest publication but now encompasses all the areas where we have offices, from San Diego to the San Juan Islands.
FROM STARTER HOMES TO LUXURY ESTATES
Something else you might notice in the pages of this magazine is that we feature homes for just about any type of buyer. We pride ourselves on the diversity of the properties we represent. This extends to the people we represent, as well. Real estate is not a one-size-fits-all proposition, so we work with clients of all kinds, such as first-time buyers in search of something affordable, retirees who are ready to downsize, horse lovers who need an equestrian property, and buyers of ultra-luxury estates.
The National Association of REALTORS® recently released a study of home buyers and sellers stating that the average distance people move from their former home to their new home is 12 miles. We also know a large percentage of West Coast buyers stay on the West Coast, even if moving long distances or to another state. That’s why Windermere has made its home on the West Coast and why we’ve chosen to focus our growth in this region.
So, whether you’re moving across town or out of state, or if you’re in the market for any kind of home from a condo to a waterfront estate, we have highly-trained professionals in every corner of the Western U.S. who can help.
