We recently relocated to Seattle after living outside of the US for the past 10 years. It is our first time living in Seattle. Nan’s knowledge and expertise has been invaluable. She helped us navigate a market that moves very fast and that we knew very little about. In less than a month we were able to learn about the different areas, identify what we were looking for in a house, and go into contract on a house all while we were overseas.

Nan brings warmth, humor, common sense, great listening and patience to the table. I felt cared for, understood, listened to- while also knowing that she would keep me grounded in reality and what would bring the sale of my house together successfully. She brought clarity and perspective to my thinking while leaving the final decisions to me. I cannot recommend her highly enough!
Nan Kinnier helped me buy my first house in Seattle in 1983, and so far she has represented me in 4 house purchases and 3 sales. I am always impressed by her professionalism, her knowledge of the market, and her results. Nan is an extremely effective and respectful negotiator, and her advice has always been superb on questions of value, timing, improvements, pricing, etc. Nan is tactful, patient, persistent, and very reassuring to stressed out sellers (and buyers). I wouldn’t work with any other broker, and can’t recommend her highly enough.

I’ve been in real estate for many years and still love what I do. What does that mean for you? It means I’m experienced and easy to work with. I will really listen to you and will partner with you every step of the way to match your goals with the best possible outcome.
In the words of my clients, Melissa and Jim, “Nan is incredibly smart and has a great sense of humor. In a tight market this is critically important as stress levels increase. She listened closely to our needs and guided us to a house that perfectly met our wish list and worked tirelessly and intelligently to secure the deal.”
When you work with me you get me. I do not pass tasks to a team, I prefer to be hands on and take responsibility for every detail. I work hard, I’m accountable and I’m a fierce advocate.
According to Julia, who was referred to me as a first time home buyer, “Nan took time to sit down with me and explain each and every detail, step by step. I never felt uncomfortable or pressured. I found myself grateful for her honesty and straightforward approach. When it came time to make an offer, she was extremely attentive and diligent and fought hard for my best interests. Her knowledge and negotiating skills are impressive to watch…I appreciate the fact that she was patient with me and truly made me feel like I was her most important client.”
I’m grateful that most of my business is by referral and repeat clients. I welcome hearing from my clients anytime whether they are actively in the market or not. I’m happy to be a resource whenever I can. I have a long term perspective and hope that you think about me when you think about real estate.
