|Geordie Romer, Realtor, Leavenworth WA
I am a Washington native, born in Seattle and raised in Olympia. I am a graduate of Middlebury College in Vermont where I earned a B.A. in Environmental Studies and Political Science.
Why Work With Me?:
Prior to real estate I spent nearly a decade as a park ranger in our National Parks. My work included law enforcement, search and rescue, emergency medicine, and wildland firefighting. The values of trust, team work, and determination are ones I bring with me to real estate.
I am one of only a dozen of real estate agents in the Wenatchee Valley to earn the coveted Certified Residential Specialist designation from the Council of Residential Specialists. Only 4% of Realtors nationwide hold the designation which requires numerous advanced real estate classes and requires real world sales experience. The CRS Designation is often known as the Phd. of real estate. It's not surprising that these 4% handle 25% of all residential transactions in the United States.
I have also earned the e-PRO designation from the National Association of REALTORS. As an e-PRO I have received the most up to date training on how to use the internet, e-mail, and other high tech tools to maximize my real estate business. With 80% of consumers using the internet to help them research real estate, doesn't it make sense to use an agent who understands how best to use these tools? With so many out of towners buying in Leavenworth, having a strong web presence is paramount.
I enjoy getting out in the mountains around Leavenworth in any way I can. I am an active climber, telemark and crosscountry skier, and hiker. Recent exotic trips to the mountains include visits to the Canadian Rockies and to the Bolivian Andes.Click Here for Photos. Once upon a time I was a competive cyclist and coached a youth team in Olympia. I also do some freelance journalism as time allows. I have had short articles published in Alpinist, Rock and Ice, High Country News, and Wild Earth magazines.
