Lake & Company Real Estate began in 1982 with a simple goal: be Seattle's best real estate company and serve the entire region. I started at a smaller company, and decided to come to Lake & Company after working opposite sides of transactions with 4 great agents from this fantastic company. I knew I had to end up at Lake! We are an independent office, which is one of the things I LOVE about working here. Lake & Company is the most productive, single office in the city.
The following philosophy was written by Founder Michael Skahen and is the foundation on which the company was built.
BELIEF: We believe in real estate and home ownership, and therefore have fun helping people achieve it.
EXCELLENCE: We strive to do everything better than the other companies.
SERVICE: The client's needs come first.
TRUST: Clients are treated as if they are a member of our family. The Golden Rule!
Our central location on the shores of Green Lake is ideally suited for easy access to all areas and as a member of the Northwest Multiple Listing Service (NWMLS), Independent Broker Association (IBA), and National Association of Realtors (NAR), Lake & Company is positioned to provide the best service available in today's market.
As a result, Lake & Company has grown to become Seattle's most productive independent real estate office, supporting more than ninety professional Realtors. Through commitment to quality, not size, Lake & Company carefully guards its reputation for excellence rather than simply relying on a national name, for, without a national name, we must rely on only our reputation for superior service to compete.
