Meet the Team


“It has been such a pleasure and joy to know that our listing was under your leadership and expertise. This is the first real estate transaction that either of us has just stepped away knowing that all was in good hands."


"Shawn Filer was extremely responsive and accommodated our requests to view homes as soon as they got listed. We've lived in Seattle a combined 60 years and felt that Shawn knew the Seattle real estate market and neighborhoods better. As experienced home buyers (it was our 6th home purchase) and as attorneys, we felt we were in good hands with Shawn during the paperwork and negotiation process. We would recommend him without hesitation, and would use him for our next real estate purchase and sale."
