With more than 8,000 sales associates, Windermere is the largest real estate network in the West. With more than 70 in our Anacortes and Mount Vernon offices, we are also the largest network in our own little neck of the woods.
The Anacortes Windermere office was opened in 1988 by John Prosser, and was later purchased by Jim Scott together with his two sons and his daughter. A word from Jim on Windermere, and his business philosophy;
In 1989 I chose to affiliate with Windermere because of the people who owned, operated, and populated the Windermere organization and offices. Every national franchise that courted us had a great name and a checklist of reasons to join, but none offered a genuine partnership of interests, ideals, and philosophies. I chose Windermere because I liked the people and agreed with their culture and philosophy of hard work and extended community involvement.
There are certain things that I believe make us a great company:
In more than 30 years of real estate sales, we’ve seen first-hand the effects on business of challenging people and indifferent leadership. That’s why we try hard to choose good quality people to work here, and why we’re willing to be very particular about the agents we hire. They must be a good fit for us and our clients, as well as a good fit for Windermere’s driving philosophies. As our industry and our society change, our way of doing business continues to change. It’s critically important to us that our day-to-day operations-from our agents to our staff-provide a high level of support and consistency, including:
You know, thinking back I’m glad I made the choices that I’ve made. Windermere has helped me define and clarify my own philosophy, and has helped me hire great people, whose support and example-in turn-help me even more. Business is not just business; it’s what we do with much of our life. I care a lot about how I spend the business part of my life, and am proud to have great agents and staff who care very much about the work they do, and the ways in which they do it.Jim Scott
