Providing Relentless Representation and Knowledgeable Empowerment for my Valued Clients throughout Kitsap County WA, and parts of Pierce, Mason, and Jefferson Counties.
My Passion for Real Estate
After spending most of my professional life climbing the ladder of corporate America, and being away from home and family way too much, I decided a change was needed. I discovered that real estate was a natural fit for my abilities and talents, and have thoroughly enjoyed my career choice ever since!
As a licensed Real Estate Professional with Keller Williams West Sound, my primary focus is to relentlessly represent my client's best interests, and to empower them with expert knowledge so they can make informed decisions, thereby successfully achieving their property buying or selling goals.
My Passion for My Family
Here's my family (left-to-right): Elliot (21); Alex (daughter-in-law); Ben (24); Jerod (son-in-law); Emily (25); Yours Truly; Janice (my wife); Luke (18); and Sadie the Wonder Dog.
If I'm not out working with my real estate clients, chances are I'm with my family, enjoying life here on the beautiful Kitsap Peninsula.
My Passion for Kitsap County WA
Of all the places I've ever visited, nothing compares to the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
Here on the Kitsap Peninsula, we're surrounded by the clear deep waters of the Puget Sound. To the west is the picturesque Olympic Mountains Range rising up dramatically from the shores of Hood Canal.
To our east, the eclectic & hip Emerald City, Seattle, and the towering summit of Mt. Rainier. There is no better place on the planet to call home!
During the summer months, when not with clients, you'll find me in my boat out on Hood Canal, pulling up my crab pots, and soaking up the rays!
My husband Bob and I would like to thank you for all of your hard work in selling our home in Poulsbo. We appreciated all the hard work and professionalism you showed throughout the entire process. You more then went out of your way during the transaction, and even helped the Buyers with their real estate needs, due to their agent being out of town. Your photos of our home were done so well, I am sure that it helped a lot in bringing in the right Buyer. I also wanted to add that I appreciated the honesty that you showed, and the thoughtfulness of helping us to save money where we could. I cannot recommend you high enough! For anyone wanting a realtor in Kitsap County, they really should go to you first! Maxine and Bob Howard

As first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions. Rich answered all of them patiently and thoroughly, and always with a smile on his face. He was quick to respond to e-mail and phone calls, easy to talk to, flexible, and respectful of our wishes. Rich truly made the home buying process simple! He was great in every aspect of our home buying experience. With this being our first home, we were really starting from scratch and we felt like he was always there to provide help and thoroughly explain each facet of a very complex endeavor. We truly appreciate his diligence as he helped us throughout the entire closing process. We couldn't be more pleased with our first home. Our deepest thanks go out to Rich for his generosity and hard work.

I have been commuting to the Central Kitsap School District for the past 8 years from Sumner, which is about a 1 and 1/2 hour drive each way. Through the years, this drive has become very old and tiring. Just recently, I realized I no longer wanted to make this commute and decided to buy a home closer to work as an investment and as a place to live during the week. Rich Jacobson was recommended to me by one of my employees as a person who could help me with this purchase. I contacted Rich and in an extremely short period of time I purchased and moved into the perfect place for my needs. Rich was wonderful to work with, took care of all the details of the purchase and was very professional in all aspects of his job. If you are looking to buy a home, I strongly recommend Rich Jacobson of Windermere to help you through that process--you will be glad you did!
We were coming to Washington from another state, so it was critical to find an agent who understood our needs and in whom we could trust. Rich only had one day to take us around Kitsap County, learning what we liked and getting an idea of what we wanted. He continued to look for properties while we returned to California and waited. Rich was able to find the absolutely “perfect” home for us and we trusted him so much that we bought the house without physically seeing it, only viewing it through pictures he sent us. Without any reservation, we would highly recommend Rich to anyone searching for a home. He listened to what we wanted and gave advice as to what he thought would meet our needs. He was the perfect agent and now we own the perfect home!
