DONALD V. BAPTISTE

OWNER/PRINCIPAL

Real Estate relationships are built upon trust, mutual understanding, communication, and unparalleled service. My goal with my client is to be a super server and not a super salesperson. I do not judge my success by how many homes I list or sell, instead, my success is contingent upon the complete satisfaction of my clients. My interest is to build relationships with my clients for life and to serve you and your family`s real estate needs. Because I am confident in my abilities I do not resort to any high-pressure sales tactics. I am your Real Estate Consultant and not a salesperson.

I have lived in Seattle since 1987, I became a licensed agent in 1994, over the past 20 years I have bought and sold personal residences in many areas of Seattle. This gives me a unique perspective on various neighborhoods throughout the Seattle region. I have been featured in many publications including Newsweek Magazine, I have been awarded “Best in Client Satisfaction” by Seattle Magazine for several years in a row, recognized as one of Seattle’s top Ten “Most Dedicated Agents” by Goldline Research, and recently recognized in the top 10% of Americas Most Honored Professionals.

I enjoy traveling around the world, and my passion for piloting private aircraft is a lifelong dream fulfilled. I am also an avid runner, and I have participated in several Ironman Triathlon events.

JILL MCCORMICK

I have been in the Real Estate profession full time for the past 20+ years. I hold the Accredited Buyers Representation designation, the Certified Short Sale Negotiation designation, I have completed many courses in staging and have just recently obtained my Managing Broker license.

I am proud to be with Sound Point Real Estate, a company where we can present all types of service levels to our clients. Our services range from Buying and Selling of Real Estate, Property Management, Property Maintenance, and various levels of needs within those boundaries. We surround ourselves with a good team of experts to ensure that your transaction runs as smoothly as possible.

My years as a real estate broker have taken me through many different phases of the NW Washington market. I have enjoyed many “booms” and have helped many clients through some tougher times. I know how to negotiate when things are “hot” and I know how to pace ourselves when things are a little less warm. I have extensive experience in construction projects from new to old. I am very knowledgeable about purchasing investment properties, and property management. I am very detail-oriented, I move quickly – but thoroughly, I try my very best to answer my phone and certainly to return calls promptly. You can be assured your transaction will be in good hands!

My background is in business and hospitality management at the Four Seasons hotel. I have been a full-time broker since then, and I love this career! Helping clients search for the right home, negotiate through the transaction, get their home ready, all the good times, and all the tough times, make my job interesting and challenging every day!

I have been married for 18 years, and have 3…nearly grown kids. Two outside of the home, one inside. I have two dogs, 4 city chickens, and some tropical fish. I love being outdoors, watching the sunsets, running, skiing, boating, and hiking.

I would love the opportunity to help you, or someone you know with their current real estate needs.

Buying or selling your home can be a very exciting time, however, it can also be one of the most taxing times in a person’s life. That is where I come in, backed by a team with over 50 years of professional service in the real estate industry. My goal as your real estate agent is to be the best conduit you can have to help make your real estate needs simple and efficient. In addition, exceed client satisfaction and build a meaningful relationship throughout the years to come.

I have competed in many athletics, my favorite being track and field. I also have a passion for photography as well as just about anything to do with the great outdoors.

KELLY BUCK

I have successfully developed and operated several Airbnb units for 5 years. Over that time, I have become very knowledgeable about short-term rental business practices and trends. In the past 2 years, I’ve added real estate development and began building high-end single family homes. I enjoy looking for opportunities, designing with modern high-end materials, managing a budget, and realizing value beyond common expectations.

I am an attorney by trade. I was admitted to practice law in New York State in 1999, and in Washington State in 2008. I worked at a non-profit organization in Washington Heights before returning home to Seattle for family reasons and starting my own businesses. I am currently in emeritus status and volunteer, providing legal advice to low-income tenants. I am also a court-appointed special advocate and work with dependency cases advocating on behalf of children.

I have lived in Greenlake since 2005 in a great home that I’ve extensively remodeled, working as the general contractor for those projects – including developing my basement to be my first rental unit, which started my work in the Airbnb market. I grew up in Woodinville and graduated from Evergreen State College. I stay busy with my 11 and 14-year-olds. I am also an avid tennis player and captain several US Tennis Association ladies and mixed doubles teams.

CHELSEA DOTSON

(206) 947-5998, Chelsea@soundpointre.com

Growing up in the generation of millennials, I have had the benefit of being given tools that allowed me to flourish in the increasingly tech-savvy world we live in today. Additionally, I greatly benefit in my field today having been raised by a single father whose jobs covered all sides of real estate and property management. These factors in my upbringing have given me the advantage of being comfortable around all aspects of real estate.

With years of customer service expertise, I take great pride in providing my clients with outstanding assistance from the beginning to the very end of their transactions. I am friendly, pay close attention to detail, knowledgeable, prompt, and ambitious. Once you allow me the pleasure of helping you find the home of your dreams or help you sell your current home, you won’t be disappointed in the least! My clients come before commission.

Being a Washington state native, I enjoy being outside-running, hiking, paddle boarding, wakeboarding, swimming, etc. I’m a health nut who doesn’t mind indulging. I enjoy challenging my body, mind, and soul. I enjoy art in all forms such as fashion, music, painting and believe it or not, make-up!
