Meet Vice President and Principal Broker for LUXE Christie’s International Real Estate Kendra Ratcliff
As a second-generation residential and commercial broker, real estate is in my blood. Having grown up with a father who was a successful real estate developer in California, I learned lessons early about the importance of focus, professionalism, and creating value. My family traveled to every corner of the globe, instilling in me a curiosity for the way people live, an understanding of cultural differences, and a knack for navigating uncertain situations. These collective experiences made me the person I am today – an honest, good-natured, hard-working professional who appreciates the challenges and rewards of high-end real estate.
Through my nearly 30 years of experience working for many of the region’s most prestigious real estate firms, I have honed my skills and developed a passion for representing recreational and acreage estates. Experience in this niche market has proved invaluable as these properties often serve as businesses as well as homes for the owners. I understand both the personal and professional sides of these complicated transactions, and my unmatched experience and strategic marketing plans allow me to connect buyers and sellers who have the desire to live their dreams on these distinctive properties.
As the founder, COO and designated broker of Christie’s International Real Estate – Seattle and the vice president and principal broker of LUXE Christie’s International Real Estate, my entrepreneurial spirit and keen business acumen have been instrumental in growing these brokerages into market leaders in luxury real estate. My business development achievements have received regional, national and international recognition, while my desire to exceed expectations and deliver results has earned me inclusion into Christie’s International Real Estate Masters Circle, an elite group of international brokers who have proven records of success, passion, and expertise.
