Edy is a member of the National Association of Realtors, dedicated to the highest standards of service and professionalism.  She is the Branch Manager of the Seattle eXp Realty office, located on Lake Union in the heart of the brand name Seattle neighborhoods, and with 8 agents working out of our boutique office, she has experts to recommend in every aspect of real estate, be it a home search in the area of your choice, investment properties, short sales, relocation, or selling your home taking advantage of our high volume of website visitors to give your property the best possible exposure.  Edy was in the top 2% of real estate brokers in King County in 2010 and 2011.  And in 2012, due to client evaluations collected by an independent survey company she was honored by being appointed a Seattle Magazine 5 Star Agent, one of the top 5% of agents in Seattle according to client ratings (these were the clients who purchased or sold homes.)  Her perfectionism and dedication result in attention to detail during every stage of your search and purchase experience.

Edy and her family came to the area nine years ago and fell in love with it. The size, natural beauty, people, culture and educational resources all make it an exceptional place to live, work, and play. Edy brings her experience in business, management and negotiation to her work in real estate. But it is her love of people and her joy in being involved with your important moments of change and decision in the process of life that make her dedicated and unfailing in the pursuit of your goals.

As a realtor and most recently the team leader at SeattlePowerSearch.com, the Seattle branch of eXp Realty, Edy has been involved in over 150 real estate transactions in the past seven years, involving homes from Vashon Island to Duvall, Snoqualmie Ridge to Bellingham! What a great and inspiring way to learn about this amazing place. Of course, her GPS has been invaluable to the process…now Edy feels like she’s “from” Seattle, but with the added ability to understand what it means to relocate here and which knowledge is first tier, which is better to follow after. She works extensively with relocation clients in Seattle and on the Eastside, including from Microsoft, Amazon, Boeing, University of Washington, and their subsidiaries. She lives in Ballard, and formerly lived in Richmond Beach, part of Shoreline five minutes north of the Seattle ‘border’, and loves Queen Anne, Magnolia, Fremont, Ballard, Wallingford, Green Lake, Ravenna, and the areas along the west side of Lake Washington, as well as Shoreline, Lake Forest Park, and Edmonds. On the Eastside she has spent most time in Kirkland, Bellevue, Redmond, Woodinville, Sammamish and Issaquah. She has also worked extensively on luxury condos in Belltown and Downtown, and enjoys comparing views with the best of them!  Mercer Island has been another favorite for Edy and her clients, and she has extensive information to offer on the city and properties.

Edy’s involvement in real estate began in the 1980′s when she was part of a Project Development Team for a real estate company in San Francisco for two years. After having worked on several major San Francisco and Lake Tahoe projects, she became most interested in buying and leasing of properties, including sales of business opportunities. She was also the official company photographer. There followed a period of work in finance, but an interest in travel led her to Japan, where she lived and worked teaching in university for 12 years. In addition she founded and ran her own large private school and formed Currents, a group that produced art exhibitions in Japan, America, and Australia, and arranged tours of New York and on the West Coast.

Eventually Edy returned to Monterey, California, where she taught Japanese, designed instruction, was a project manager for multimedia products, a product developer for early childhood educational products, and helped manage a five-star resort hotel, all while completing a masters in Multimedia and Instructional Design. Upon relocating to the Pacific Northwest with her family, she pursued her real estate license and is now deeply involved in helping her clients search for the perfect property in the local real estate market. When not at work, Edy practices Aikido and takes advantage of the local boating, picnicking and hiking riches with her family and friends. Oh, yes, and the great restaurants!
