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. Being in the Director of Operations role, I have the opportunity to work closely with our team and manage its development and growth. Working closely with like-minded individuals, and building a company so unique and so worthwhile is the most fulfilling position I could hold.

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 grew up in Woodinville and have enjoyed watching the city grow over the years. My passion for helping people lead me to study biology at WWU. After earning a B.S. in biology, I moved to Southern California where I worked as a lab tech and eventually Lab Coordinator. I decided to move back home to the beautiful PNW to be closer to family. I've always had a deep interest in real estate and interior design so I'm thrilled to have transitioned my skillset from Lab Coordinator to Listing Coordinator. I'll use my strong attention to detail and creativity to coordinate contractors, stage, and market your home. Preparing to sell your home can be daunting. Let me take some of the weight off your shoulders by handling the details. I love connecting with clients and helping them get their homes market ready. Teaming up with our talented brokers to guide clients through the listing process is truly a joy! Outside of work, I enjoy playing basketball, spending time with family, and playing with my Chihuahua- Mastiff mix, Maggie.

Blake McBride

I've lived in the NW all my life and have been fortunate enough to witness firsthand the growth and development of this beautiful region. I have nearly a decade of experience in real estate - being a real estate investor since 2012, working with investor clients, along with my role as a traditional real estate broker. I'm able to look at traditional real estate through a little bit of a different lense having been in the trenches as an investor; this wisdom allows me to look out for my clients in diverse ways.

My favorite part about being a real estate broker is helping home buyers and sellers get what they want and to be a part of, what is for many, one of the most important decisions of their life. My clients deserve to know every detail about the process and their investment - good or bad. I work hard to eliminate gray area, negotiate, streamline the process, and make my clients selling or purchasing experience as seamless as possible.

David Cho

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!

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 diverse experience allows me to provide unique insights and exceptional real estate client experiences.

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.

Real estate is in my blood. My family going back three generations have been brokers, owners, or investors in residential and commercial real estate in Washington, Wisconsin, and North Carolina. In my family, real estate buying, selling, and investing has always a topic of discussion around the dinner table. 

My real estate path began in the University of Washington Law School and then lead to my real estate, business, and contract law practice. I also became involved with real estate acquisition and investment early, buying my first single family residence at age 25 and building my own portfolio of residential investment properties over the years. Expanding into real estate brokerage has allowed me to pursue my passion of working with clients and helping to make their real estate goals and dreams a reality. 

I have a thorough understanding of contracts from my legal practice, and a bone-deep knowledge of the Northwest, having been born and raised here, and having lived here my whole life. I understand how to price your home, how to write a clean offer that will appeal to buyers or sellers, how to work with lenders and escrow, and I can negotiate and get your transaction closed with terms you can feel good about.  

My husband is a data scientist and his family has lived in Washington since before it became a state. Between the two of us we have lived in the University District, Tacoma, Ravenna, Lakewood, Shoreline, Lake Forest Park, Ballard, Queen Anne, and – back in the very old days – Unincorporated King County! There probably aren’t many streets in King, Snohomish, or Pierce County that we haven’t driven down at some point. 

Outside of work, I enjoy coaching my children’s baseball teams and elementary school cross country team, running the school gardening program, assisting with the school auction, teaching “adulting” classes to post-grads, baking mouth-watering desserts, traveling around our beautiful world, learning piano, practicing family photography, and dabbling in acrylic and watercolor painting.  

Thank you for your business and for your trust in me!

In 2021 I moved from Philadelphia to Washington looking for a change of pace and a different environment. I've leased and managed apartment homes for 9 years and decided to become a real estate broker in 2022. During my time as a property manager, I understood the importance of the client experience from the initial tour to move in and how it impacted a resident's decision to renew. Building rapport and creating lifetime relationships with people is my goal as a broker. If you are renting, buying, or selling I'd like to join your journey and provide guidance and most importantly support as you make these big decisions.
In my free time, I like to cook, try new foods, and have a great time with friends and family.

I'm a PNW native with over ten years of experience working with real estate investors in the local market. I've worked in construction, in both the residential and commercial space, worked for a property management tech start-up, and on the acquisitions arm for a real estate investment brokerage, finding both on and off-market deals for my clients.

I've done my fair share of personal investing as well, yet, regardless of how much I know, there's always more to learn. I like to keep a constant watch on the local market and I'm always on the hunt for good deals. I also enjoy getting to know my clients and helping them to create and deploy a strategy that gets them what they want for the right price!

I know that buying (or selling) a home can be an intimidating process, even for those with experience. A general anxiety over, "how to make the right decisions"  when, " you don't know what you don't know" can muddy the waters and cause people to make costly mistakes or miss golden opportunities. I pride myself in being able to demystify the real estate market for my clients, and helping to guide them towards their goal. So whether you're looking to invest, or find your dream home, I'm the right guy for the job.

Outside of work, I enjoy writing and playing music, watching a good game, or hanging with my pup Shiloh.

A Seattle transplant by way of the Midwest, Joe Sheldon instantly fell in love with the area's beauty and year-round access to outdoor activities when he arrived a decade ago. He feels fortunate he gets to spend his days helping others find their perfect homes here. Clients have said that when you're working with Joe you always have an ally throughout the process—100-percent in your corner.

Joe's path to real estate was by no means a straight line. In fact, before becoming a realtor, Joe had two distinctly different and varied careers, spending nine years in IT and another nine years in emergency services (six as a volunteer firefighter and the other three as an EMT). Both occupations proved deeply rewarding, and as an EMT Joe's deep empathy came into play.

In some respects though, life in real estate was inevitable from the start, as Joe's father was a home builder. This early exposure to the family business informs Joe's understanding of new construction and development, and his appreciation for the care and attention it takes to find the ideal home and deep understanding of the ins an outs of property sales.

Joe's diverse background has indeed shaped his success as a realtor. Honing his keen eye for detail and analytical mind, his IT experience also provided him a unique insight into advancing technologies in real estate and beyond. He stays on top of market trends at all levels and is well respected for his business acumen and knowledge. The backbone of his research informs his innate market intuition and his strong negotiation skills.

Ultimately, Joe takes the most pride in connecting with clients. He appreciates the deep commitment involved with the home buying process and works as a genuine advocate for his clients at every step in their journey.

As satisfying as his work in real estate is, Joe's true priority is dedicating himself to his two children and working as a volunteer with local organizations at every opportunity. There's little doubt that Joe will put the same passion into his dream house as he has done in finding that perfect place for his clients.

It gives me great satisfaction to assist people in finding the property they want to make their home and doing so with the care and assurance to have the transaction go as smoothly as possible.
Outside of real estate, I'll be busy having fun with my wife and our two little girls. Skiing, backpacking, traveling, and eating delicious foods are always a great added bonuses to life.

My sales career started in the fitness industry, working as a personal trainer for Golds Gym. Although training my clients to help them achieve their fitness goals was immensely rewarding, I slowly came to realize that my passion lies more in the sales process than it did with anything else. After 8+ years in the gym industry and hundreds of successful client testimonials, I chose to move on and pursue my dreams. Eventually, my deep rooted passion for helping people lead me to real estate.

My success thus far can be credited to my upbringing. My parents taught me the value of always putting other people first, and showed me how enriching life can be when you treat everyone like your neighbor. With over 25+ years of life experience in the PNW region, I am confident that I can find a neighborhood that is the perfect fit for any clients needs. Whether you are a first time home buyer/seller or an experienced real estate investor, I am excited to build a relationship with you and show you what genuine client satisfaction feels like.

Outside of the office, you can find me spending quality time with my wife and our two Australian Shepards, on a golf course attempting to make contact with the golf ball, or in the gym avoiding the cardio machines.

Hi! Experience helps in this crazy world of real estate, and I bring a lot of it to the table.

My journey began by watching my parents' purchase rental properties in Victoria, BC on a teacher's salary. After years of hard work, the properties provided my parents with true financial security and allowed them to retire in their dream waterfront home. Their experience showed me the power of real estate, and I was inspired to follow in their footsteps.

I built my own rental portfolio in the Midwest and acquired extensive experience in the logistics of buying, renovating, maintaining, managing, and selling real estate.

As your agent, I will leverage this hard-won experience to ensure your real estate journey is as smooth and successful as possible. Whether you're buying, selling, or investing, you can trust in my expertise to guide you through the process with confidence.

Let's work together to turn your real estate aspirations into reality. Reach out, and let's begin this journey together!
