The Power of a Windermere Broker

When John Jacobi founded Windermere in 1972, he set out to change the real estate industry by putting relationships before sales quotas and emphasizing service to clients and the community. While real estate has changed substantially since then, Windermere’s core values — relationships, community, collaboration, education and professionalism — remain the pillars of their business model.

These values dovetail with Merna’s own. With a heart for service, Merna truly loves taking care of people — whether its guiding first-time home buyers through the process with patience and compassion or feeding a room full of people at a dinner party, Merna connected with Windermere’s commitment to their clients. In fact, this core value inspired her own tagline, “Putting Clients First.”  

Windermere’s hands-on approach to training and continuing education gives Merna the technical edge to know the market inside and out, counsel her clients accordingly and provide the best service possible.

"Merna helped us buy our home in Bothell and she is simply unbelievably amazing. "

She is very professional and helpful. Her great experience with interior design that helped us a lot. When we started looking for a house, we felt burdened with the amount of details and risks, but all of that evaporated with the amount of knowledge, analysis, and assurance she provides. She knows how to approach every person individually. She usually talks to me in numbers and facts and talks to my wife in ideas and vision. I just wish the process of buying a house happens more often so we can have the delight of working with her over and over!


"Merna has a genuine personality that radiates positive energy and makes a client feel that they are in good hands."

She is an amazing salesperson without even trying to be one and earned our trust right off the bat! She really cared about helping us find the house of our dreams. She really steps back and listens to what the client really needs! She never tries to push her ideas or impose her opinion, but at the same time, subtly and intelligently, rolls out her input and advice at the right moment and in the right manner. This is one experience where one person, like Merna, can change the life of an entire family to the better. The process was flawless. We highly recommend her!


"It's as if she's part of your family and wants it as much as you do."

Merna was amazing. We gave her very specific (almost impossible) parameters on a very short turnaround time. She was able to secure us the home we wanted and was there every step of the way. She thought of things we did not think of, and she really provided end-to-end seamless service. We strongly recommend Merna as a relentless advocate when looking for a home. It wasn't about the sale for her but about making sure 100% we got what we wanted.
