The Zehms work both Seattle and The Eastside, the condominium and residential markets, with Aaron specializing in working with clients looking for investment properties and Karen specializing in relocation. "We know both the Seattle and The Eastside markets and how each one ticks," says Karen. In addition, both have taken staging training and investment property analysis training. Aaron is E-Pro certified-a technical program that trains real estate agents to make the most of technology and the internet to best serve and keep in communication with their clients. Aaron is currently the new agent mentor for new agents to the Windermere Woodinville office.
Washington natives, both Karen and Aaron Zehm are not only familiar with why people want to live in the Pacific Northwest, but also why many of those who leave, eventually return. For those looking to relocate to the Greater Puget Sound region, Karen has experience working with Chamness and Windermere Relocation. She has handled relocation transactions for nearly 8 years and has had to become very familiar with many neighborhoods. "My relocation clients often don't know the area or where they want to live," says Karen. "I have to be knowledgeable of many areas so I can help them make an informed decision when it comes time to decide which area best fits their needs."
Karen and Aaron share a very active lifestyle and the discipline and committment required to sustain their active lifestyle has them well-prepared for the rigors of real estate. Aaron had a previous career as a personal trainer and his other fitness interests include weight lifting and martial arts. Karen is currently the Treasurer of the Eastside Runners and spends many days running with their 2 year old daughter, pushing her in the jogger stroller. The Zehms are also active in another way, in their commitment to enriching the community in which they live and work. Both Karen and Aaron also participate annually in the Windermere Community Service Day in which agents in every community served by a Windermere office work on several projects to improve their local neighborhoods.
