Sandra Hines
Realogics Sotheby's International
About Sandra

--------SANDRA STAGES ALL HER LISTINGS AT NO COST TO HER SELLERS!-------- Buyers and sellers in any market need advisers who can spot real value amidst the hype. They need representatives who see things as they really are. Sandra Hines is at the top of her game. After 15 years in the business, she is among the most highly endorsed and elite REALTORS® in Seattle and among the top five by several measures in West Seattle where she resides. She is a true industry leader with a proven track record that includes participation on top-producing broker panels and consistent recognition among Seattle Magazine’s Five Star Real Estate Agents. People are initially drawn to Sandra’s charm, kindness and generosity—traits forged by her Texas upbringing and early career in hospitality management as Global Director of Public Relations for Westin Hotels & Resorts. During her tenure there, she received national recognition for her PR efforts with the launch of the now iconic Westin Heavenly Bed and for her involvement in crafting and implementing multiple launch campaigns for new construction resort/hotel projects that spanned from groundbreaking all the way to grand opening. Beyond the accommodating, enthusiastic Southern Belle, Sandra is a driven and competitive agent with an analytical mindset, keen ability and die-hard desire to win for her clients. She has flawlessly applied her intimate knowledge of marketing and PR strategies for big time corporate real estate to her residential real estate career—this gives her clients and her listings a unique edge others don’t. Sandra’s real estate practice has evolved. A bout with inflammatory breast cancer in 2017 shaped her mindset, values and relationships—sometimes reinforcing, sometimes resetting. Her fight brought clarity and perspective by forcing her to re-examine what was important and to choose to live without fear. “After cancer I am not afraid of anything. I look at situations for what they are and take events as they come,” she says. “I am better at appreciating people for who they are and what they want—without judgment.” The clarity that helped guide Sandra proves a differentiator for her clients; accurately identifying what people care about translates into value (and money). Living without fear makes hard conversations and choices easier. Big decisions transform risks into opportunities. This fresh view led Sandra to align with Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty, where she serves her clients through an unparalleled global network, award-winning marketing and a trusted heritage rooted in the world-renown Sotheby’s Auction House. Those considering a real estate voyage with Sandra should understand that relationships are at the core of her business; respect and communication are foundational. Whether it’s her clients, the agents she negotiates with, or their clients, diverse personalities and underlying values are in play. People want different (and sometimes unexpected) things! Taking those interests seriously leads to creative solutions, fruitful negotiations and wins. Sandra’s business succeeds because she serves her clients’ best interest. Sometimes she advises not to sell. Sometimes she advises not to buy. By valuing relationships over transactions, she runs a business that is authentic to her values. This spirit animates the friendly, conscientious way she works and her commitment to community—local businesses, schools, and nonprofits. Sandra’s business reflects her personality: it’s welcoming and hospitable with deadly competence once you enter the arena. The difference between “average” and “elite” is substantial in real estate. Having representation with the wisdom & skill to see things as they are in terms of people, the market & community values makes all the difference in the world. Outside of being a realtor, Sandra loves being a mom to her two teenage children, planning trips to places near and far with family and friends, and serving as a connector in her community—an instrumental role in introducing and helping others cultivate meaningful relationships within the community. She is a strong supporter of her local neighborhood and the people in it, and is always looking for ways to make a difference. Sandra has served on the board and consistently sponsors events for WestSide Baby, which helps families in the Greater Seattle Area; donates her time and resources to Northwest Hope & Healing, which provides resources to those fighting breast cancer; as well as Refugees NW and Project Kids Cancer Cure Guild and sponsors various other local school events.

Toril Schoepfer
Toril Sells Houses Team
About Toril

When Toril Schoepfer's parents named their daughter, they were somehow drawn toward something descriptive, a name that would continuously inspire this young woman to become the achiever she is today. The name "Toril" comes from Norway and means "female warrior" - reflecting a competitive spirit and inner drive that Toril brings to everything she does. Toril grew up in the Lake Tapps area, where she definitely lived up to her name as a key member of the track team throughout high school. At 5'11, Toril not only stood head and shoulders above her teammates, but with her passion to succeed, she helped take her team to the state championships year in and year out. "Working hard and succeeding in sports taught me that giving your very best is truly the most important thing," says Toril, " I learned that is your care enough to always give it your all, the results will take of themselves." Torils name is hardly the only unique thing about her. She has a passion for helping others, especi
