About Francine Viola
I began my real estate career in 1993 as a residential appraiser. This knowledge and experience led me to commercial sales, leasing and property management, but I discovered my true joy was in residential real estate. I am fortunate and proud to be with the #1 brokerage in Thurston County, Coldwell Banker Evergreen Olympic Realty.
“In tune with your real estate needs” is not just a play on my last name, but it is my philosophy. I work to be “in tune” with your goals. Communication is at the heart of what I do. I’ll ask a lot of questions, I’ll ask for your feedback, and I’ll keep your best interests as my top priority. By working together, we'll meet or exceed your real estate goals.

As a native Washingtonian, I am delighted you are making the South Sound your home! Welcome!
Geographically, I specialize in Thurston County which includes the main cities of Olympia (Washington State's capitol city), Tumwater and Lacey. I also work with buyers and sellers in Dupont, Washington, which is located in the neighboring Pierce County, and is located about 5 minutes from the main gate of Joint Base Lewis McChord.
My clients are first-time home buyers and sellers, very experienced buyers and sellers looking to simplify, and military personnel relocating to and from Joint Base Lewis McChord.
The types of residential real estate I focus on are new construction, single family homes, condos, townhomes and manufactured homes. I also have extensive experience helping buyers purchase bank-owned homes.
Thank you so much for all of your help in our search for our dream home. We really appreciate that you stepped in when we needed your help the most.
--Brian and Nicky G.
Roy and I feel you are without question the best, most professional and competent Realtor we have encountered in our 40+ years.
--Roy and Wendy W.
Thank you for all that you have done for us. I dreaded that house hunting project until you became a part of it. Thank you.
--Chris M. and Agnes O.
Francine did a miracle job. She stayed on top of this sale and was able to keep this client involved in the sale process once a buyer was found despite the fact that the client was moving from shelter to shelter each night. Thanks to Francine, this is one less client who is part of the homeless community right now. This kind of commitment to people in need is not something we often see.
--Leslie Owen, Attorney at Law, Northwest Justice Project
I am very grateful for your patience and perseverance. Thank you for making my new home possible.
Francine was the best realtor we have ever dealt with. She is extremely customer service oriented.
--John and Jamie H.
Your commitment to my needs has been phenomenal. I'm thrilled with my house!
We really appreciate your time and will certainly recommend you to anyone who is interested in real estate. You were by far the best agent we encountered during our search.
--Lori and Thomas M.
I’ve been proud and fortunate to be recognized on the local and national levels with Coldwell Banker for my sales achievements. However what is more important to me is how I was able to reach these goals. My broker says it best:
While these awards recognize your sales accomplishment, I want to celebrate what brought you to this achievement - your outstanding service to clients. This award is only earned by hard work, professionalism, and dedication to service excellence. Perhaps the greatest compliment and recognition of your outstanding service is the fact that past clients so eagerly refer family, friends and colleagues to you.
