MEET THE TEAM

Why choose Design Realty?

Thank you for taking the time to learn a bit more about us. You have a lot of options out there, and it can be a bit of a process just deciding who to work with.

 

Real estate brokers are all independent contractors, meaning every broker you meet is operating their own business. Because of this, brokers must spend time looking for new business in order to sustain their small business. A good portion of their time is spent on SALES, trying to generate business, rather than on servicing the clients they have.

 

We believe our brokers time is better spent with you. Sarah and I started this firm with the idea that we wanted to have full time brokers completely focused on their clients. We support our brokers behind the scenes with whatever they need, so they can do what they do best. Our brokers are true professionals in every sense of the word. You will be in good hands working with them. We encourage you to challenge any broker you engage with to answer your questions competently and to your satisfaction. We are confident you will find ours to be the best.

In 2017 my husband and I made the move from Indiana to the PNW having no idea what would come out of it. Fast forward to today, where we have planted roots and are obsessed with the outdoor space and exploring all it has to offer.

If you had asked me 5 years ago where I would see myself, I don't imagine I would have ever said "running a real estate brokerage" , none the less said it with a smile. I found a career that not only am I good at, but I feel passionate about. I have taken the lead as the companies listing coordinator, but I also manage and develop so much more behind the scenes, working closely with like-minded individuals, and building a company so unique and so worthwhile.

Kevin and his team were very professional from beginning to end. Keeping in contact and updating me were keys throughout the process. In addition, they were very helpful with upgrades and staging during the process of the sale of my house.

I got my Real Estate Broker license in 2010 and immediately started working with distressed homeowners, listing and selling short sales. It is such an amazing and fulfilling feeling being able to help people navigate out of such crippling financial situations.

In January of 2015, I joined on with property management company as a Community Association Manager, managing a large portfolio of condominium and homeowner associations as well as a multi-family property. This diversified my experience and knowledge, specifically in the community management and multi-family property management fields. I continue to manage a 51 unit multi-family building in Rainier Beach.

In 2019 I joined Design Realty. Merging my years of experience with a company who’s values align with my own, has been the experience of a life time. I take pride in my work and am recognized as a true professional in the industry.

Alan Zholdubaev

I epitomizes integrity, energy, hard work, and creative service in every detail of your real estate transaction. I’m a family man, an athlete by nature and huge believer in helping others. My moto of life: “The purpose of living is giving”. I grew up in Kyrgyzstan and started my entrepreneur habit at an early age. I have been involved in many areas of business from being an independent owner, trading stocks, to all the way of being an online marketer. I have been trained and inspired in sales by some of the best from Dale Carnegie, Tony Robbins, Robert Kiyosaki, Jim Rohn, Jordan Belfort, Napolean Hill, and many others. I use my experience and foresight to proactively address details before they become a problem, which is essential to a successful real estate transaction.

Blake McBride

I love and know the Northwest very well having lived here all my life. I’ve worked in real estate and investments since 2012, and have grown with the ever-changing landscape of the NW real estate market. I look at real estate through a unique lens with first-hand experience as a real estate investor; I’ve helped clients acquire residential renovation (flip) projects, rentals, and land / new-build opportunities. Whether you are buying your first home or selling, relocating, or adding to your investment portfolio, I value how important these decisions are and I’m here to work on your timeline. My favorite part about this job is that it often doesn’t feel like work at all. I get to connect with fun people and look at cool dwellings – can’t complain! I’m usually spending time with my beautiful girlfriend, or hanging out with good friends, when not doing something real estate related. I’m a nerd when it comes to interesting Spotify discussions, and one of my favorite places to go is anywhere in the back country on a snowboard. I’ve been going out on Union Gospel Mission’s Search and Rescue for nearly a decade; These experiences I’ve gotten to share, meeting other humans exactly where they’re at in life, humbles me and fills me with gratitude for the life I get to live today.

I started my sales career at Cadillac of Bellevue where I was able to sharpen and master the art of negotiation. I quickly realized that while I enjoyed this, I'd rather use my skills to negotiate on behalf of a client versus against them. The saying is that a car is the second biggest financial purchase of a person's life, while a home is the first. Naturally, this led me to real estate. Being in the Seattle region for 20+ years gives me the knowledge to guide my clients to the area's best suited for their needs and help them understand current market trends. Outside of real estate, you can find me on the golf course shanking my tee shot or missing a 3-foot putt. Rest assured, I am a much better real estate broker than I am a golf player! And as every good bio is not complete without: I am a HUGE animal lover. I have a Siberian Husky and Shiba Inu back home. I'd love to adopt more, but those two have enough energy (and shed enough) for 5 dogs!

With a background in home construction, being raised by a home builder, owning a couple of appliances stores and then working in residential remodeling business, I have always had a love of homes. My experience also includes 6 years in the financial industry, so getting my real estate license in 2013 was a very natural and easy transition. I have been helping people with buying and selling their homes ever since and truly have a job that I love. When I am not working I am with my 3 wonderful kids and husband or on the tennis court!

Storm Foley

I was born in Southern California and was able to learn from my father being a real estate investor. I found everything about it fascinating from the numbers to the power of money. In 2018, I graduated from Stanford University with a degree in Neuroscience. I followed that by leading marketing and partnerships with tech giants like Amazon and Facebook to further promote a product that would soon become acquired by Facebook.

While studying at Stanford, I was a TA in Neuroscience and had the opportunity to teach and grade a class of over 100 students. I find fulfillment in teaching and explaining high level concepts in ways that are easy to understand. Being a real estate investor myself, I want to provide as much information to you and recommendations based on my experience. Growing wealth through real estate is fun! I am constantly tracking market trends and predicting what is going to occur in this market.

Whether you are a first time home buyer or a seasoned real estate investor, I would be honored to represent you as we work together to fulfill your lifestyle and financial goals. Buying a home is one of the biggest purchases you will make and I will have your back every step of the way as I guide, plan, inform and empower you as we walk through the process.

I maintain a pragmatic, service-driven approach with every real estate transaction. My passion for real estate started early, when at the age of 23 I left my Emergency Medical career as a Paramedic to pursue my real estate business. My success can be attributed to my dedication to networking and marketing, my savvy negotiation skills, and ultimately, my relentless pursuit of client satisfaction. My diverse experience allows me to provide unique insights and exceptional real estate client experiences.  

I cherish spending quality time with my spouse, Family, and local WA friend groups. When I’m not at home or at the office, I can be found enjoying the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest or biking the local trails and parks of the Puget Sound. Let me guide you through your next real estate transaction and show you what true client satisfaction is all about.

Growing up in Lake Stevens and observing my father navigate his way through purchasing multiple properties, I knew I was on the fast track to being in real estate. I bought my first Triplex at 20 years old and my second at 23 years old. In 2020, I bought a 24 unit. In 2021, I found Design Realty and merged my years of experience with a company who’s values align with my own.

I thrive in real estate, it is truly my biggest passion. I take pride in being able to teach others about the market and how to navigate it in a successful way. Whether it’s a duplex that you want to purchase or your next home, I am excited to have the opportunity to work with you.

I have always had a fascination with architecture and interior design because my father was a structural engineer and my mother was an architect. In 2011, I came to the United States as a civil-environmental engineering student. I instantly fell in love with the beauty of Washington and have been living here ever since. My passion for human connection and cultural background have helped me make life-long friends from all over the world. I bring that same energy into my career as a real estate broker. I want my clients to feel comfortable sharing with me what they need and understand that I am here to help. When I am not working to find my clients their perfect homes, you can find me exploring a new restaurant, filming a video for my Youtube channel, or getting lost on a hike somewhere.

With 23 years of mortgage loan experience, I have helped hundreds of families reach their dream of homeownership. That is why in 2017 I decided to also get my real estate license. This allows me to help clients find that special home and also help them understand the home loan process. My business is solely based on referrals and repeat customers. This has been done through excellent communication and honesty throughout the home search process. When I am away from the office, I enjoy spending time with my wife Gina and my two children, Trey and Ali. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me today and allow me to put my experience to work for you and your family.

I'm proud to call myself a lifetime Washington resident. I'm actually the 3rd generation of my family born in the state dating back to the 1870's!

The quality of life, natural beauty of the region, quality and friendliness of the people and the amazing outdoor adventures all around us makes it difficult to think about leaving! Being a lifetime resident gives me a strong advantage when helping to find my clients that perfect home, or to market a home properly to obtain the greatest traffic to generate the highest sales price possible.

My clients are my business. Their faith and trust in me is what fuels my success. I make it top priority to always be available, knowledgeable of the market, patient, always working for the clients best interest, and most importantly, honest. I would be happy and honored to help you with any of their Real Estate needs. Never hesitate to call or e-mail me with any questions.

Thank you!
