After attending the University of Washington to study History and English, I moved to Jefferson County in 2011. Enchanted with the beauty and the immediate proximity of the majestic Olympic Mountains and Puget Sound, I knew I had found my new home.
Having spent seven years working tirelessly, and enthusiastically, as a kitchen manager, saucier, sushi chef and more, I look forward to putting that same dedication, eye for detail and inexhaustible work ethic to work for you.
Whether buying or selling, I am committed to providing my clients with prompt and succinct communication, making their needs and concerns a top priority, and I have a drive to strive for excellence. With more than 19 years of customer service experience I know how to prioritize, negotiate, organize and set my clients up for success.
I spent many summers during my youth on Hood Canal. I worked at Camp Parsons, BSA camp, during the 50's, 60's, 70's, 2009, 2010 and 2017. In 2005, I purchased a small cabin in Brinnon and made visits during time off from my regular jobs. I worked in education as a school principal and as a representative for Scholastic Publishing Company. I sold the home in Lake Stevens and moved into a fulltime home in Brinnon in 2014. I am active on the Brinnon School Board and publish the Brinnon Crier, local newspaper for the Senior Organization. I also served on the Lake Stevens City Council for years. I have been active in real esate in the Brinnon area since 2009. I also worked in real estate in the early 70's. I may be "retired" from my early careers but have not retired in my real estate activities.
I do know the area well. I also have helped clients find property in Port Townsend, Quilcene, Hoodsport, and Shelton.
I will provide you with the service that you expect from a real estate broker who has integrity. Once we connect and meet, I will serve and support you until you find that right piece of real estate. In this competitive market, you will need a broker who will tirelessly keep looking for your new purchase, confirming that each new piece that comes on the market has what you need.
I can help locate that piece of waterfront property, the cabin in the woods, a home in a community, or that piece of vacant land for a camp site now or for a future building. I will contribute 5% of my net commissions to local non-profits and organizations.
I moved here to get away from the endless traffic and high taxes. Living on the Olympic Peninsula is a perfect place for retirement or for young folks who want to work from home. Brinnon is very small with a school, post office, grocery store and gas station, fire station, garden nursery, storage areas, some places to eat and many campgrounds. The Book Mobile comes twice a week. Major shopping is approximately 45 miles away in each direction with national stores, theaters, and cultural activities. (Port Townsend, Shelton, Sequim, Silverdale).
Olympia can be reached by driving south for about an hour on Highway 101, which is very scenic and not very crowded with vehicles. If you enjoy abundant seafood, we have it all here. (Fish, clams, oysters, shrimp, and crab). Hiking is close by in the Olympic National Forest and Park. Victoria, Canada can be visited by taking the ferry from Port Angeles, either by car or by foot. Forks, the location for the movie series Twilight, is just a few hours drive away. Once in that area, you can visit a real rain forest. Visiting the Pacific Ocean is also nearby and a great place to explore.
Belinda is excited to start her second career as a Broker with Windermere Hood Canal. Retiring in 2014 as Assistant City Manager in Riverside, CA, she brings over 30 years experience in economic & community development. Belinda and her husband have vacationed & owned property in Brinnon since 2004, and have called Brinnon home since 2015.
Belinda worked part-time as a consultant to the City of Port Townsend where she coordinated the Upper Sims Way Subarea Plan. She also served as Chairperson of the Brinnon Parks and Recreation Commission, and the ShrimpFest in 2019. Belinda believes in giving back to the community and will donate 5% of her “net” proceeds to several Brinnon and Quilcene nonprofit organizations.
Belinda looks forward to bringing her experience to help buyers find their home in South County/Hood Canal.
