Jan’s Involvement in Windermere’s Community Service

Once a year my Windermere Colleagues and I put down our cell phones and log off our computers. On this day, more than 6,000 Windermere agents and staff take time out to work on a community improvement project. Since Community Service Day began in 1984, we’ve volunteered more than 300,000 hours toward these efforts. I believe in making the neighborhoods that we share a better place to live.The Windermere Foundation Helping Homeless and Low-income Families.

For the last ten years, the six offices owned by the Deasy family, with their major financial support, the help of all the agent’s and staff have helped special families in need. With a Christmas budget for over 150 families a year, one family member shops for their family, we wrap the gifts and surprise gifts for the shopper. The children take home Christmas presents and good cheer and we all have a wonderful time making Christmas just a little better for many families.

My Family

I have lived in the Greater Seattle area since 1977 and have gained valuable experience and insight into the market conditions in many areas including; Seattle, the Eastside as well as south to Renton. I operate my business from the Windermere Bellevue West office in Bellevue, but also have a full working office in my home in Seattle. I am the proud mother of two grown children (my son, Rod, passed away June 12, 2010 from ALS – Lou Gehrig’s disease) and grandmother of three, who all live in the area.
