As a full-time Senior's Real Estate Specialist, I am committed to understanding the individual needs of clients aged 65 and over.

  • Life-long resident of the Seattle Area
  • Graduate of the University of Washington
  • 34 years of professional sales experience
  • 14 years at Windermere Real Estate
  • 12 years investor/landlord experience
  • Seniors Real Estate Specialist
  • Mercer Island/Eastside real estate specialist

I represent my clients with personalized, professional service to deliver impressive results. As a Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES) and a member of the Windermere Seniors Transition Team, I specialize in serving the specific needs of seniors and their families. I am highly attuned to the unique requirements that seniors have and work hard to not only meet but to exceed expectations. My clients know that I truly care about them and their needs.

 

The Kirk Vaux Difference

Properly downsizing a senior from his or her long-time family home is a much different process than working with the typical “move-up” buyer. I specialize in working with seniors, and am experienced in the preparation and sale of older homes, senior real estate options in King county, thoughtfully dealing with excess belongings and vetting move managers and estate sale companies. I will streamline the transition process with a customized approach, and ensure my clients are treated with the patience, professionalism and respect they deserve. As a testament to my dedication to seniors, I am the only broker in Washington State to have the following three senior specialized designations.

Seattle and Eastside area seniors now have a new resource to assist them in the aging process.
