What Matters The Most To You?
That really is the goal isn't it? I am focused on you and your needs. Buying or selling real estate can be both exciting and stessful. It is my hope that I can walk down that path with you to shed light on the process, problem solve and celebrate the success of realizing your hopes and dreams.
What are my qualifications?
I started emptying garbage cans in my father's real estate office when I was 9 years old. I worked there until I made the leap into college. Before heading off to Pullman, I obtained my real estate license at the age of 18. I attended Washington State University where I received my Bachelors in Business Administration with an Emphsis in Real Estate (co 2000). I have had the opportunity to work for and with, some of the best REALTORS from Port Angeles to Pullman.
I had a 6 year detour out of the real estate life and into a corporate environment/retail store management with The Bon Marche, Macy's and Federated Department Stores. First serving as a sales associate then onto a department manager and finally into the human resource role. The mastering of flexibility, customer service and truly people service were my greatest takeaways.
People are my focus.
Who am I?
I am a 5th generation Mason County resident who loves to work and live here. I am wife, parent, WSU Cougar, hiker, runner, gardener, lake kid and a massive consumer of the PNW summers.
I am client focused and results driven. I am your REALTOR for life.
I have been listing and selling real estate for over 20 years. I grew up in the business, and real estate is all I have ever known.
I have extensive knowledge of residential, vacation and investment properties. I am your best choice when looking for a good agent.
I am the fifth generation to live in Mason County from my family. I'm not in this business to make a quick buck; I'm in it to build life-long relationships, and to have you tell somebody "Call Andy, he does a great job."
I know Mason County. I know the real estate market. I know the best way to help you through your real estate transactions. With me you will get real information that you can rely on.
Buying and selling real estate is an exciting event. It is my goal to make sure it stays that way. Attitude is everything!
My speciality...I know every street, every house, every person (well almost). After all, this is my neighborhood. I was born here, went to school here and have sold real estate here for 30 years.
Nobody works harder than I do at my profession. I work full-time (and then some) with the help of my assistant. We put together smooth, trouble-free transactions - and lots of `em!
I love my job! I love real estate! And, I love working with people! A positive attitude coupled with good planning and goals can accomplish almost any task.
A customer once commented, "Keith, you'll DO WHATEVER IT TAKES to sell a property." And I will. I list, sell, and love referrals. That's what I do. Give me a call. You won't be sorry.
I have been a Realtor in Shelton since 1960 and an owner/broker since 1964. During this time I have managed the top company in the county, served as the 1st President of the Mason County Board of Realtors, honored with "Realtor of the Year" and most recently the "Lifetime Achievement Award", by the Mason County Association of Realtors. I also actively list and sell residential, land, waterfront, and commercial properties.
I moved to Shelton from Minnesota in November, 1951. Over the years I have seen this area change and grow. Being in Real Estate and always being in the middle of this growth, I try to do my part by staying active in the community. I was a member and a past President of the Shelton Rotary,a charter member of the Skookum Rotary and that club's president for July 2010 through June 2011, and I have also served as President for the Chamber of Commerce. My community service contributions extend to many different clubs and organizations, including Saint's Pantry Food Bank, Mason County Habitat for Humanity, and various scholarship funds.
I am a member of the Faith Lutheran Church, which is where I married my wife, Gerry, in 1953. We have three children, five grandchildren, and 3 great-grandchildren, all of whom live here in Shelton.
The "Himlie Team" includes myself and my daughter, Jill. She started working with me in 2003. Having two of us helps make sure that someone is always available to help with whatever our clients need.
