Welcome, I'm Helen Martin, Managing Broker with Keller Williams Realty. I have 16 years experience and I do business in Mercer Island, Issaquah, Kirkland, Renton, Bellevue and Seattle. What makes me different from most realtors is my commitment to the Realtor Code of Ethics and helping you achieve your real estate goals.
I have my Green Sustainable Property Designation and I love helping people find the greener side of life as I run my life and my business by these principles. Green Choices...Make Yours Today!
In addition, I also am a Certified REO Property Specialist and I really know the prices in my market by the amount of Broker Price Opinions I complete for the bank asset managers. I understand the short sales process as a Certified Short Sale Negotiator, assisting sellers with alternatives to foreclosure and can help a buyer understand how to make an offer on either a short sale or a bank-owned property.
Were you aware that now is a great time to buy? Are you chasing the market?
As a warranty management consultant for developers and my extensive condominium management background this makes me an expert in condominium sales and conversions.
Sellers can receive a real time market snapshot that will pinpoint the value of their home. For those sellers with equity, I can educate you how to leverage your equity to build net worth through the purchase of investment property.
I may not be the right agent for you, however if your values line up with mine, you expect experience, integrity and someone who cares about your needs; I would love an opportunity to meet with you.
At Keller Williams Realty, we like to think we stand out from other real estate firms in many ways, but these areas in particular define Keller Williams Realty as an industry innovator and leader: Culture, Education, Profit Share and Technology.

We are a company built and shaped by talented, driven real estate professionals who know the value of having a great career, accomplished colleagues, work-life balance and a reputation for being the best in the business.
We focus on helping associates realize their fullest potential. You will find opportunities for growth, support for achieving your objectives and a true sense of family and belonging.
Your success is our goal.... Make today the day you begin the next fulfilling chapter in your life and career.
It almost seems that the Pacific Northwest is synonomous with condos. If you look in the big cities of Seattle and Bellevue you will see cranes on almost every corner. Even tiny little Mercer Island has three cranes right in the town center.
I have experience in managing over 1,000 condominium units in the Seattle Belltown and Capitol Hill neighborhoods. These mixed-use buildings operate on million dollar yearly budgets. In addition, three of the five buildings I managed were in litigation for which two of these buildings I coordinated and managed the repairs.
I've read and re-read the Washington State Condominium Act and have scrutinized many condominium public offering statements and CC&Rs. It is these experiences that my clients can find value in using my services when purchasing or selling a condominum.
In addition, I have gone green. To be specific I have obtained my Green Sustainable Property Designation with the National Association of Realtors and focus my daily living and business practices toward environmental preservation. I am familiar with green features and energy efficiency for homes and buildings.
The media says 40% of homeowners are defaulting on their mortgage payments. As a Certified Short Sale Negotiator I am committed to helping homeowners with alternatives to foreclosure.
As the Relocation Director for my office, and an approved agent with Altair Global Relocation, I can assist your out-of-town referrals with great care in regard to their employment, lifestyle and education needs. I've lived in the Pacific Northwest in Snohomish, Pierce and King counties over the last 30+ years and know the area quite well.
