The Windermere Mount Baker Difference
The brokers and support staff who make up the Windermere Mount Baker office are as diverse as the community they serve. What we all have in common is a warm and friendly attitude, a desire to help one another succeed, and a better-than-average sense of humor. It's no wonder that our brokers have been with the office an average of 10 years, and the support staff an average of 17 years. The level of support, the willingness to collaborate, the sense of family- these all make Windermere Mount Baker different from the typical real estate office. Whatever that special something is, people say they can feel it as soon as they walk in the door.

He also actively solicits broker feedback on how the office can serve them better.

A commitment to community
The Windermere Mount Baker office has roots in the community that run deep. The office opened in 1979, the fourth of what are now over 300 total Windermere offices, and the only major real estate company with an office in South Seattle. Our desire to help others succeed extends to the greater South Seattle community. The office is very involved in the Rainier Chamber of Commerce and the Columbia City Business Association. Each year brokers and staff hold a food drive for the Rainier Valley Food Bank and host a Toy Drive for Treehouse, a local agency that supports foster children. We sponsor a Rainier Little League team, donate money to family support workers at Southeast Seattle elementary schools, and are there to lend a helping hand when our neighbors need it.
