When you think of someone who has traveled the world, who builds relationships within her own community, and considers herself a steward of history, you can’t help but think of Robin Joy Savage.
Throughout her travels, she has developed a profound understanding of what most people universally want – happiness at home. She has lived in Paris, France; Brussels, Belgium; Athens, Greece and has traveled in Western Europe, Scandinavia, Lebanon, Tunisia, Egypt, Iran, the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii, Canada, Costa Rica and the US. She is uniquely skilled at being able to work with people of different cultures and who speak different languages.
Robin knew a unique understanding started with a solid education. She has a Master of Arts degree in International Studies, Western European and Middle Eastern Studies from the Center for International Studies at the University of Miami. She also received a Bachelor of Arts degree in French with Western European and Middle Eastern Studies from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey. She attended Harvard Summer School in 2000, taking Microcomputers and Information Technology class.
Robin has worked for a real estate appraisal company for 11 years, reviewing residential, industrial, commercial, and right-of-way real estate appraisals. The ability to analyze property and market data across a number of different markets is a special skill, and one she utilizes when helping home buyers and sellers. In 2013, she obtained her Real Estate license, applying her knowledge of real estate, the area, and insight to determine, locate, negotiate, and successfully purchase or sell properties for her clients. With a full suite of online marketing tools to stage, show, and prepare homes for sale and an equally robust suite of online tools for both standard properties and luxury, and resources to find the home of your dreams, Robin stands ready to do whatever it takes to create a winning result.
A West Bellevue resident since 1966, Robin has an extensive knowledge of this area. From riding horses in Kirkland, Bellevue, Woodinville, and Issaquah to exploring the beach at Medina and shopping in old Downtown Bellevue, she has witnessed the growth of Bellevue over the last fifty years.

|Robin Joy Savage answered my initial rental search. She was quick, easy going and helpful when my husband and I were searching for a house. She was very responsive and attentive to our needs and questions. She was quick to call the agents for the rental homes, finding suitable homes to view. It was a pleasure working with her and I hope to again next time I move. She is someone I can trust, and most importantly, she is very knowledgeable of the King County market. I highly recommend her as an agent.|
Insight. Appreciation. A cultivated perspective.
