With over 28 years of real estate experience, Erin has worked in the Bellevue Commons office of Windermere since 1991. From a receptionist while in college to a successful sales agent for over two decades, she has proved to be not only an expert in real estate but a trusted advocate for her clients. "Nothing is more valuable than proven experience.

Client Centered Service

"How you live and what is important to you is always my focus. I'm not selling a product, the goal is to serve & advocate for each unique situation." Erin works throughout King and Snohomish Counties and specializes in Eastside communities, particularly in Bellevue, Kirkland & Sammamish. Erin understands what people in transition need. Whether it's a growing family in need of a larger home, empty nesters wanting to downsize, or a client facing divorce, she provides supportive and attentive care. Confidentiality is something many clients need, she respects every client's privacy and helps them feel at ease being a trusted partner.

Work philosophy and style

Every buyer and seller receives the ultimate high-level service experience. Whether you need creative solutions to find that dream home, or professional staging and customized marketing to get the best price on a sale, Erin delivers excellence. "Referrals are the focus of my business. When I work with a new client, I have to earn their trust. The highest compliment I receive is a referral from a client I have served. Rather than spend time and money marketing myself, I spend it on serving my clients during a transaction and after the sale. The clients get 100% from me and they support my business by sending new clients my way."

Her personal interests

Erin & her husband Chris have raised three children in Sammamish. Maddy recently graduated from UW Fosters school of business, Jack is a Senior at Eastlake High school, and her youngest, Austin is in 2nd grade at Blackwell elementary. As a northwest native and Sammamish resident for over 30 years, she has experienced the growing community, local schools & sports at every level.  Putting family first is sometimes challenging in this business but they manage to fit it all in.  Enjoying time in Eastern Washington on the lake or in the mountains is how they spend their 'off' time.  Traveling as a family is something that has become more fun since the kids are getting older.

Erin was so wonderful to work with. She was recommended to us by some friends of ours and was unbelievably helpful throughout the process of finding our home. Erin found us exactly what we wanted; the perfect place in a great neighborhood, just 10 minutes from work. We HIGHLY recommend Erin to anyone looking for a friendly, knowledgeable, and experienced real estate agent.

I've bought three houses in three different and very challenging housing markets (Santa Cruz CA, Boulder CO, and now Seattle) and of the three, my experience with Erin was the best realtor on all levels. It is a HUGE challenge to buy within a limited budget in tech-worker-saturated markets, and Erin was absolutely key to our success. Her detailed knowledge of the many areas I was exploring was vital to narrowing down exactly where I should focus to get the most house and best value for my home budget. She's super responsive and always available to help. And she helped negotiate the price down to below-listing -- which is a small miracle to accomplish in the high-turnover, hot competition home market of Seattle. I couldn't be more pleased and we will definitely work with Erin to sell my home if/when we move on from Seattle.

Erin helped us purchase our new house, and walked us through each step. We were well informed at all times, and there were no surprises with the transaction. Additionally Erin helped us sell our current house, and did an amazing job. She helped us out in all aspects to get our house ready to be placed on the market. It was a ton of work, however we sold our house in 12 hours at a price well above the asking price.

Erin is very professional and knowledgeable. She takes the time to learn your needs as a seller and makes sure they are met. She answered all our questions. She kept in touch as we went through the process, making sure we always knew what was going on and what the next steps were. We could not be happier.

Erin is a seasoned professional possessing the perfect balance of market knowledge, process experience, and levity. She works to make a potentially stressful situation a smooth and fun process. She leaves no detail behind and is a true client advocate. We could not be more happy with our outcome.

We really enjoyed having Erin walk us through the process of both buying and selling a house. She made the process as painless as possible. We think her idea of pre-inspection when selling a house is the way everyone should sell a house. The house we bought was not in her area, however she was always willing to drives hours away to show us houses. We have recommended Erin to family and friends in the past and they all report the same feelings about Erin's service.
