Sandra Hines
Realogics Sotheby's International
About Sandra

***SANDRA PROVIDES COMPLIMENTARY STAGING & EMPLOYS A DEDICATED PRE-LISTING PROJECT MANAGER TO ASSIST HER SELLERS AS PART OF HER CONCIERGE STYLE SERVICE*** 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 and her team are at the top of their game. After 17 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 and the Seattle Times. Her team includes Buyer Specialist Blake Waggoner as well as a dedicated pre-listing project manager who takes on all the tasks involved in prepping a house for sale so our clients don't have to and a full-time marketing director. 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 marketing campaigns for new construction resort/hotel projects. 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 and her team should understand that relationships are at the core of their 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 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.

Duke Young
Windermere Bellevue Commons
About Duke

Duke's extensive knowledge of real estate, marketing and business comes from hands-on experience. His experience in a wide range of real estate transactions has included transfer sales, commercial land, bare land sales and multi-unit. While his specialty is residential properties, and of course single family homes, Duke's main focus besides closing successful deals is building lasting relationships, which are the foundation of his solid repeat and referral business. "Where lifestyles and communities intersect" is Duke's personal slogan, because to him it's important to sell lifestyles rather than just homes. Duke will guide you through every step of the real estate process, helping to separate the emotional aspect from the practical financial side so you can make clear, confident decisions that will positively impact your life and your future. Duke believes his role should always be of service, not sales. Because of this, he has enjoyed an exemplary track record of success (despite the down market of recent years) since entering the business nearly a decade ago, as well as status in the Top 1% of real estate professionals in the nation. As an experienced real estate investor of 20 years, he understands the importance of finding the right property at the right price, and looks forward to making that happen for you.

Vince Grant
Grant Team Properties RE/MAX Elite
About Vince

What I do that sets my team and myself apart involves both marketing and negotiating. With a team, I am able to do more and higher quality marketing than the vast majority of my competitors. I feel negotiating skills are by far the most overlooked asset an agent brings to the table. Many times $10,000.00 to upwards of $40,000.00 is negotiated between the buyer and seller. Rarely does a week go by that I don't put an extra $10,000.00 to $20,000.00 in my client's pocket that most agents would not realize. The bottom line is I sell far more homes faster, for more money and with a greater success rate than the vast majority of agents in the Puget Sound region. A Seattle area resident for over 40 years, I have been selling real estate since 1989 and have sold over 2,000 properties. It is my goal to provide excellence in all areas of my real estate practice.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Kirkland?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Kirkland?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date.

You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in Kirkland to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Kirkland is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
