Lisa Calkins - Agent
My goal is to provide extraordinary customer service by always placing my client's needs first. With 14 years in the real estate industry, I have developed exceptional customer service, marketing, and negotiation skills, to assist sellers in getting their homes sold! I take this responsibility seriously, and strive to build a lasting relationships.
I began my real estate career in Lewis County, Washington in 1987, listing and selling rural homes and acreage in Packwood, Morton, and Mossyrock for the following 5 years. As you can imagine, marketing real estate at that time was challenging, as there were no desktop computers, and the MLS listings were stored in a 3-ring binder. Even without modern day technology, the same principles applied, and customer satisfaction was achieved with strong customer service skills and local knowledge, combined with honesty and a strong work ethic. In 2005 I returned to the real estate industry in Clark County, Washington, as an administrative assistant and transaction coordinator through 2012 – in this position I learned invaluable skills in overseeing hundreds of home and land sales from listing through closing, and the importance of true customer service.
In 2013, my husband of 30 years and I relocated to rural Shelton, Washington, and are enjoying “life in the trees” as we call it. Having grown up in Port Orchard, returning to the Puget Sound region feels so welcoming. There are so many things to enjoy, and the natural beauty that surrounds us is unparalleled. We are always busy, either working in our yard, antique shopping, or visiting family and friends all around the region – enjoying Northwest country living!
I invite you to give me a call so that we can discuss your particular needs. I am here to help, and welcome the opportunity.
