Dedication, Honesty and Integrity

Open and honest communication, a tireless dedication to fulfilling the needs of their clients and a commitment to educating their clients about the real estate process. That describes the foundation upon which Aaron and Karen have built their successful, 16 year-old real estate business. "We strongly believe in educating our clients on the real estate process and how the market works," says Aaron. "At the same time, we listen carefully to what our clients want and don't work on our own agenda." Aaron and Karen started out with another real estate company, but switched to Windermere after 8 months. "We wanted to be at an office that had the same values as us," says Karen. "Honesty and integrity are important to us and we know that it's the cornerstone of our relationship with clients." The Zehms work strongly with both Buyers and Sellers, and understand that buying or selling a home is an emotional process. Because of that they are committed to making every effort to be accessible at all times to meet the needs of their clients.


The Zehms work both Seattle, The Eastside and Snohomish County, both condominium and residential markets, with Aaron specializing in working with clients looking for investment properties, REO`s and short sales and Karen specializing in relocation. "We know both the Seattle and The Eastside markets and how each one ticks," says Karen. In addition, both have taken staging training and investment property analysis training. Aaron is E-Pro certified-a technical program that trains real estate agents to make the most of technology and the internet to best serve and keep in communication with their clients.


Washington natives, both Karen and Aaron Zehm are not only familiar with why people want to live in the Pacific Northwest, but also why many of those who leave, eventually return. For those looking to relocate to the Greater Puget Sound region, Karen has experience working with Chamness Relocation and Windermere Relocation. She handled transactions for Microsoft`s Internation relocation for nearly 6 years and has had to become very familiar with many neighborhoods. "My relocation clients often don`t know the area or where they want to live," says Karen. "I have to be knowledgeable of many areas so I can help them make an informed decision when it comes time to decide which area best fits their needs." Aaron is currently the new agent mentor for new agents at the Windermere Woodinville office as well as the Managing Broker.


Karen and Aaron share a very active lifestyle and the discipline and committment required to sustain their active lifestyle has them well-prepared for the rigors of real estate. Aaron had a previous career as a personal trainer and his other fitness interests include weight lifting, Cross Fit and martial arts. Karen is an avid runner and has completed several marathons and ultra Runs. Karen is currently the Treasurer of the Eastside Runners Club as well as race director for Mt. Si Relay & Ultra Runs. The Zehms are also active in another way, in their commitment to enriching the community in which they live and work. Both Karen and Aaron also participate annually in the Windermere Community Servic Day in which agents in every community served by a Windermere office work on several projects to improve their local neighborhoods.
