Meet Shirley Kinzer

Welcome! I would love to talk with you about your real estate interests and dreams, whether it be the search for the perfect home for you and your family or an investment in your future in this magical place. Living and working on Vashon Island is a dream come true. With only 11,000 people, Vashon offers a lifestyle where you can enjoy peace and quiet, the water, the mountains, the more relaxed lifestyle and an abundance of nature.

I have over twenty-five years of experience in the real estate industry and currently serve as a Managing Broker with Windermere Vashon.  I attended Western Washington University and hold, in addition to my Managing Broker's license some of the most prestigious designations a broker can possess, including the designation of Council of Residential Specialist, which has both a national and international network for referrals of other top producing agents with whom I work.   I lived and sold real estate for ten years on Orcas Island giving me a solid background  knowledge with wells and septic systems.  I have a vast amount of experience with building homes from the ground up as well as the remodeling process. I lived in the Seattle-Magnolia area where my business was a top producer in the industry for multiple years.

Integrity and honesty are my core values. I have a strong commitment to client satisfaction, and always ensure you have the latest information.

I am a Master Gardener, belong to the Vashon-Maury Island Garden Club, Vashon Chamber of Commerce, Vashon Center for the Arts, Vashon Master Gardeners, and I volunteer for the Vashon Food Bank and Food Bank Garden as well.

Our team at Windermere is committed to providing professional real estate services to our customer.  Windermere has the largest real estate network in the West with brokers in nine states.  The Windermere brokers contribute a portion of every sale to the Windermere Foundation, which in turn donates locally to the community.
