Meet Kirsten

Managing Broker



Thank you so much for visiting my site. My name is Kirsten Robertson and I am a real estate broker with Windermere Real Estate. I’ve been selling real estate in the Seattle/Bellevue/Eastside area for 20+ years. That is my one of my jobs! I also own a real estate media company, Sketchbox Media, that helps other brokers promote their listings through professional photography, videography, 3D media and aerial photography. It’s a busy life I lead!

I started getting interested in second homes early in my career. Owning a home in “wine country” was always a dream of mine. It took a while to get there (kids, work, pets, kids, college, kids…you know how it is.) but in 2019 we purchased our first wine country property in Lake Chelan. Unfortunately, it was just a vacant parcel, although one with a beautiful view of the lake. It was not to be however. We decided custom building was not for us and we really wanted something we could use right away. After selling the Chelan lot we purchased a beautiful 1905 farmhouse in the other (better!) wine country, Walla Walla. Although I have a lot experience selling and buying homes, second home purchases are a different. They are the realization of a goal, the hope for a future, the gathering place for family and friends and that makes them special.

Through this website,  I hope to provide you with some tidbits of knowledge and to provide a referral connection service to great brokers in these beautiful northwest vacation destinations. Mostly though, this is a labor of love. A place to share my home and my second home journey with you.

If you are looking to purchase a second home and need help finding someone to work with, please email me at [email protected].

If you live in the Seattle Metro area and are in need of a broker there, well, I would be honored to work with you. That is my home territory. You can email me at the same address- [email protected]

If you would like to check out my media company, that can be found at www.sketchboxmedia.com



Kirsten went so far beyond the normal call of duty to make our transaction happen it is almost impossible to describe. So many minutes, moments, decisions, bits of advice, clarity, and, above all, kindness. Yes, Kirsten is a knowledgeable, experienced, trustworthy, and smart professional, but when times get tough she has an unflinching, bottomless consideration for her clients and loyalty to the best outcome possible. She made magic happen and we are forever grateful to her. Thank you, Kirsten.

My wife and I recently purchased a home with Kirsten and are extremely happy with her hard work, negotiation skills and knowledge of the area and the market. This is actually the second home that we have purchased through Kirsten. We were so pleased with her work securing the first home that we hired her to help us sell that house and purchase the new one. Kirsten made the buying process very easy for us, providing comprehensive timelines and making everything as transparent as possible. She is always very quick to respond to phone calls and emails and is very proactive, which keeps things running smoothly. Kirsten listened to us and helped us narrow down our desired neighbourhood and house/lot size. Her knowledge of the area and the market were invaluable during the house hunt The next time we buy/sell real estate in the area Kirsten will be our first call, without hesitation.

I had a great experience with Kirsten to find and buy a home. She is very professional and knowledgeable to provide detailed guides and information for me to understand market, house, neighborhoods, and environment. Since I am not familiar with the US housing market, I had to have a lot of questions, but she's so kind to answer all my questions promptly. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to buy a great home meeting your needs!
