More About Me

Why Hire Cori Whitaker? A Proven Record.

Buying or selling a home is one of the most important financial and emotional decisions you make in your lifetime.  You want to choose a trustworthy, caring professional with a proven record and strong business and people skills. Since 2005, I have helped hundreds of people move. My sold price to list price ratios are solid and my Cumulative Days on Market (CDOM) are below industry averages. Please refer to the Statistics tab on my website for specifics.

Business and People Skills

As a past owner in a corporate wellness publishing company, I understand the need to focus on the fine details while keeping an eye on the ever-changing big picture.  I was in charge of Business Development and Sales and in 16 years grew a small, single product company into a multimillion dollar international company with a full line of products. My partners and I sold the company in 2005 to a large national publisher. As a native of Seattle, I value the uniqueness of the neighborhoods and homes in the Puget Sound area and choosing real estate as my subsequent career was an exciting next move.

I love people. I love learning about them, their lives, their families, their hopes, their dreams. Even more, I love helping them achieve their dreams and transition as comfortably as possible to their next chapter. I am a clear communicator and an even better listener. Every transaction is as different as the people involved and I am comfortable moving as quickly or as patiently through the process as needed.

Market Knowledge and Education

As a graduate of Colorado College, I am a lifelong learner. The real estate industry changes dramatically from year to year and it is important to keep current. I constantly study market data and trends and work diligently to improve my skills and knowledge base. This continued commitment to education has resulted in receiving several designations, among them SRES (Senior Real Estate Specialist) and MCNE (Master level Certified Negotiation Expert).

Transaction Management, Customer Care and Representation

I have two full time, licensed employees who help me take exceptional care of you. Rory helps me serve buyers and sellers before we get in to contract and Lynette steps in once we are under contract. She provides phenomenal customer service and facilitates my transactions to assure that no small detail is overlooked. We work closely with lenders, title and escrow so that your transaction will close smoothly and in a timely manner. I also subcontract with specialists for administration, marketing, and social media (see My Team).

I am your delegate from the time you hire me through closing and beyond. I represent you with the utmost commitment, loyalty, and determination. Your goals are mine and I am not satisfied until I help you attain them!

I receive the majority of my business through referrals and know that only by delivering above-and-beyond service and results will I continue to do so.

I look forward to working with you!
