Laura Highsmith

CIPS, CNE, AHWD, Real Estate Agent

Real Estate is a journey and for many, the largest single investment they’ll make over the course of their lives. Whether you’re selling or buying, my duty is to give sound advice as you navigate the real estate landscape.

My years in the industry have taught me that no two clients are alike, likewise no two transactions are as well. You are looking for an agent who will make the process feel effortless; competent agents know how to make that happen. Having worked in the mortgage industry as well, I bring a level of knowledge to the real estate field that the average agent lacks. I am successful because I listen and ask the right questions which helps my clients achieve their goals.

I have loved my journey as an entrepreneur and real estate agent; understanding this is a business has been key to my success. I Create wealth for others through investment, whether that be owner occupied, second home, vacation or multi-family.

Diane L. Moorman

CNE, ASP, Real Estate Agent

A graduate from the University of Washington, with an Art and Design background. I opened a well known Framing & Art gallery in 1990 and expanded to include staging/design and decor in 1997.

In 2012, I decided to close the storefront and focus solely on staging and interior design. In time, obtaining my real estate license became the next evolution. My love of architecture and interior design paired naturally with becoming a realtor. Matching clients with their dream homes has become my obsession.

My skill set is an advantage for sellers and buyers. From fixing & flipping houses to selling and buying, I pay attention to the details. Keeping the important things in mind, while creating the perfect home for them. I look forward to connecting with you!

Jennifer McGowan

Admin & Real Estate Agent

I was born and raised in Seattle and have lived here most of my life. I love living close to the water and being able to explore the trees and mountains in our area.

When I bought my home in 2011, I was able to lay roots for my children in a community that was welcoming and safe. I was drawn to real estate for those reasons, to help others do the same.

My passion is watching clients walk into and fall in love with their perfect home. Helping our community grow stronger, one family at a time.

I was born in Seattle and graduated from the University of Washington Foster School of Business, with a focus in Marketing.

I simultaneously earned a Certificate of Study in Sales and Certificate in International Studies in Business while studying in France.

After many award-winning years working in sales and marketing, I decided to focus my energy in real estate.

I like to create a trusting atmosphere by guiding my clients through their experience with education and resources.

Inspired by my first home buying experience at age 25, my goal is to assist my clients to make the best decisions and know what they can expect.
