Real estate is my passion. I have been working with buyers, sellers, property owners, and tenants in the greater Seattle market since 2006.

I began my career with Windermere and have also held sales positions with RE/MAX. After receiving the required training and experience, I acquired my Broker's license in the State of Washington in 2009. In 2011, I took the plunge and started my own real estate sales and property management company -- Maximize Real Estate. I am currently the designated broker, and I have a wonderful team in place to help our clients with their purchases, sales, leasing, and property management.

I am personally a real estate investor and an active landlord. I am familiar with the ins and outs of real estate transactions and landlord/tenant practices. My philosophy is to treat my clients the way I would want to be treated if I needed help in the real estate world. Clients choose their agent because they need to feel secure and taken care of while handling their largest investments. The process can be risky, daunting, and unpredictable. But it can also be fun, rewarding, and gratifying. I help my clients realize their investment goals with proper education, research, and really get to know what is important to them. The market is always changing. I stay on top of the trends so I can be of value to my clients. They can tell that I really enjoy my work. The perk of what I do is that I've met many life-long friends along the way.

I do speak fluent Mandarin Chinese. 我会说国语。

I'm never too busy for your call!

      Property manage a Multi Family home in Belltown, Seattle, WA.
      I recently had the immense pleasure of working with Shannon to rent a condo I just bought. She was pleasant, professional, capable, and kept me in the loop at all times. Highly recommend!

      Found a tenant for a home.
      I requested Shannon's service as Landlord for my rental property in Shoreline from July 2012 July 2013. She listed my property within days of our conversation. A tenant was screened and occupying my home soon after. Unfortunately, for the entire contracted year the tenant was a living nightmare!!! I had structural damage, appliances broken, holes in the walls, and literally, garbage and bags of garbage piled in the backyard! At the end of the tenancy, my home was left sooo trashed, it took a total of 8 dump runs just to clean out the inside!! There were bills left unpaid and as renters in Shoreline know....THE OWNER is responsible. Shannon was very apologetic and from the beginning tackled the issues head-on as if it were her own property. Her diligence paid off and the tenant evacuated a few weeks after her lease expired. Fortunately, we did not have to file the eviction paperwork we had at bay. And as stressful as it was, Shannon made sure everything.was thoroughly documented for my records as I presented my case to small claims court. In the end, she even offered to help with the clean-up. I appreciate and commend her services and highly recommend Shannon to anyone who asks. She also provided her services to my mother who just purchased her first home!! Woo-hoo!! We keep in close contact with Shannon and she is welcomed to our home anytime!! Shannon is AWESOME!!  MoreLess
