- I'm a full time agent in Olympia, Lacey and Tumwater and surrounding areas. My main focus is residential for both Buyers and Sellers.
My emphasis is on superior service with personal attention.
About Me and My Services:
I am originally from Canada, born and raised. My family is still there in a little town, (I mean little), Sioux-Lookout, Ontario. I go back whenever I can. My dad has a cabin, that he built, on a gorgeous remote lake. This is my little "heaven on earth". The fishing is great and this is the one place that I can truly relax.
In 1984, just out of College, I had a job opportunity to go to an even more remote area, Inuvik Northwest Territories, 250 miles north of the Arctic Circle. This is where I met my husband Mike who was in a Rock-n-Roll band at the time. Mike went back to his home in Olympia after 4 months, where I soon followed. As he showed me all that this area had to offer, with its parks, rivers, ocean and mountains, I absolutely fell in love with Olympia and the surrounding area.
We married in 1986 and just happily celebrated our 22nd Anniversary.
One of my passions are cooking and baking, trying new recipes which my friends and family enjoy, ( no one has been sick yet). I am currently working on a cookbook of my favorite recipes.
Together we enjoy riding on the Chehalis Western trail on our Recumbent bikes, relaxing in our backyard, where I also enjoy gardening.. We have a dog, Porter, who fancies himself as my personal trainer, having me run 3 to 5 miles daily, "Neither rain, nor sleet, nor gloom of night"....etc....and I LOVE it.
I don't consider Real Estate a job, but rather my business. My success is solely up to me. That success is defined by my clients' satisfaction with my services.
The first thing that I like to do with new clients, buyers or sellers, is to spend a little time with them to establish a mutual relationship, find out what their needs are, and develop a game plan based on their time lines. Once we have established that we can work together as a team, that's when I get excited to make it happen. Being a people person, I enjoy building lasting relationships, and the best part for me is the end result when my clients are happy with the job I have done for them.
Education and Designations
In continuing to better serve my clients, I am always working to improve my eduction and skills so I can provide to you the most professional and up to date information & services. To that end I have achieved the following designations. ABR, GRI, ASR; and I am a Realtor.
Not all Real Estate Agents are Realtors. When you enlist the services of a Realtor, you can be confident that you are being dealt with honestly. As a member of the National Association of Realtors, I have made a commitment to adhere to a strict Code of Ethics, which is based on professionalism and protection of the public. The Code of Ethics is a promise. As a client of a Realtor , you can expect honest and ethical treatment in all transaction related matters.
Accredited Buyers Representative: Defined most simply, a buyers representative (or buyer's agent) is an advocate for the buyer-not the seller-in a real estate transaction. To receive this award a Realtor must take special training. What it means to you as a buyer, you can be assured of proper representation and guidance through every step of the process.
Graduate Realtors Institute GRI symbol is a mark of a real estate professional who has made a commitment to provide a superior level of services by earning the GRI designation. Realtors with the GRI designation are highly trained in many areas of Real Estate to better serve and protect their clients.
Committed to adhering to a stringent standard of ethics, ASR® Seller Agents are to demonstrate complete honesty in pricing as well as thorough research and preparation in completing and presenting the property market analysis. A further and most important commitment of ASR® Seller Agents is to demonstrate ethical conduct and integrity in every aspect of their real estate career.

Words from my Wonderful Clients
"We have relocated three times in the last 12 years and had our share of bad experiences with buying & selling. Our last relocation involved buying and selling our home which was over 1300 miles apart and required endless communication and coordination. Sonja managed the entire transaction efficiently and saved us a great deal of time money & headache. We would recommend her services in a Heartbeat."
Herb & Pat Olayvar
"Sonja was our agent for selling our first home & buying our second home. We knew we wanted a larger house but didnt want to sell our home until we found one we could afford. Sonja connected us with a loan specialist she trusted and he told us what we could really afford. The search began. Sonja sent us home listings and took us house shopping until we found the house we wanted. It took several tries, but she never gave up on us. When we found the perfect home and made an offer she connected us with a respected home inspector to make sure the home was as good as it looked.
Now that we had found a house, it was time to get ours on the market. Since it was our first sale, we were very concerned about all the steps involved in selling. Sonja was very competent and professional every step of the process so we never felt alone. We received a full price offer in 3 hours after our house went on the market and our asking price was top dollar for our neighborhood. I credit Sonja for the quick sale of our home as she met with us on numerous occasions to help us stage it. After we accepted the offer and had our home inspection, Sonja connected us with a repairman to complete the necessary repairs. She also attended the closing to make sure everything went smoothly. Sonja was there for us every step of the way. She was professional, courteous, and works with all the right people to get the job done & done right the first time."
Mike & Jacqui G
"I received your card. Thank you again for all that you did. You went above & beyond to make our 1st transaction easy. I most definitely will be in touch to sell or buy again. "
"Sonja sold my house in 2 days! She found a great new home for me and I love it. The transaction went smoothly and quickly. She kept me informed the whole way Through. I highly recommend Sonja to help you with your Real Estae needs".
"Thank you so much for all of your hard work and patience . We are definitely recommending you to our friends & family. You have made our first home buying experience a great one and we are looking forward to working with you again."
Shannon Charles & Jaden
"Sonja is the Best!!!! She helped us buy our first home. Every day we looked at about 3 homes until we found one we could afford. When we did, we wanted to be in it by our daughters first birthday and Sonja made that possible. She worked very hard for us and with us.
When it came time we had to move out of state, Sonja was there for us again. While we were in Nevada she handled the sale of our house and did an awesome job. We love Sonja, shes been the best Realtor weve ever come across. If we decide to move back to Washington we will call on Sonja again. We have recommended her to all of our family and friends who may be looking to buy or sell. Lots of Love "
