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.

About Paul

Representation I take pride in offering high-caliber full-service residential real estate expertise. My clients are my top priority, and I focus on delivering the best possible results for them. Expertise The real estate market is hyperlocal, seasonal and temperamental—in other words, it can change on a dime. Technology has made information more accessible to everyone, but it can be difficult to keep up with recent events that affect home values. The benefits of working with a licensed real estate professional go far beyond what a mobile app, online video, or website can do. I provide my clients with information on market seasonality and information relevant to what is happening in their specific neighborhood. This customized analysis includes recent comparable sales that factor into an offer and acceptance strategy. Negotiations Successful negotiations help move a conversation forward and transform the process into an agreement that’s a win for all parties. Negotiation is not only a skill but a mindset. I keep my clients’ best interests top of mind as I negotiate on their behalf. Transactional Excellence I am dedicated to transactional excellence for every listing and sale. What this means for you is that I oversee every detail of the real estate transaction. The transaction is far from over once an offer has been accepted. I monitor inspections, appraisals, title, escrow and loan processes. Communication and collaboration with all the partners and parties involved with the transaction ensure a smooth and timely closing. I am committed to my clients before, during and after a sale.

Kim Colaprete
Coldwell Banker Bain
About Kim

Kim is passionate about her community, her clients and real estate. She has twenty plus years of experience in working through the nuances and details of a real estate transaction which shows in her ability to strongly advocate for her clients in any and all situations. Kim is highly respected in the industry and amongst her peers but if need be she will cut a bitch. When push comes to shove, Kim is a fierce negotiator and will always put her clients’ needs first and foremost. Kim has a deep love of the arts and design, which means when you hire her to list your home - it will always be the belle of the block or the MLS. No Dwelling listing by this Diva will ever hit the market without putting it’s best facade forward. This is referred to by other agents as a “Diva tax.” Other top agents know that their clients will be paying more when they purchase a home listing by Kim and Team Diva, than by other agents. And it works, since year after year, homes listed by Kim sell for a higher percentage of list price, than the Seattle average. From the first intake to the closing table and beyond, Kim is there for you: Fiercely advocating for you, Marketing your home above and beyond and ready to enjoy and great bottle of wine and a fabulous meal with you once your deal is done.
