Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty’s (RSIR) newest office branch will be on Mercer Island

The announcement was made earlier this month.

Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty’s (RSIR) newest office branch in Washington will be on Mercer Island.

The new space will be located at 7605 Southeast 27th Street, Suite 102. It’s the firm’s seventh branch office in the Puget Sound area, and marks an integration with the Home Collaborative, the Island’s first boutique retail concept, according to a press release from the firm.

Per the release, the new office branch will be helmed by a mix of entrepreneurs, real estate brokers and the founders of the Home Collaborative, Lindsey Bundy and Tammy Gwinn. Bundy and Gwinn will transition into founding director roles; “Washington resident experts” Robyn Kimura Hsu and Natalie Debray, who are currently with RSIR, will be taking on founding director roles in the new office as well.

RSIR’s co-owner and chief people officer Stacy Jones said in the release that she had always hoped the firm would have a location on Mercer Island, since it’s the city where she raised her kids.

She noted in the release that the company’s addition is “well-timed for anticipated growth in the area with the commencement of business interests throughout King County.”

“Bringing together the Home Collaborative and Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty will provide our brokers and clients with exclusive advantages, including access to a network that is globally recognized and trusted,” Bundy said in a press release. “This evolution enables us to better serve our clients and their home buying needs. Whether that next address is around the corner or around the globe, we’re here to help.”

The release, which was shared earlier this month, said that public opening is contingent on what is permissible under COVID-19 (coronavirus) guidelines. Once the new branch is open, the release states, RSIR will be announcing additional brokers and new development projects.

Other RSIR branch office locations on the Eastside include Kirkland and Bellevue.
