"If you don't ask, the answer's no." Rooted in the Pacific Northwest - Rhonda's roots run deep through the Olympia community and the Pacific Northwest. She was born in 1969 on Olympia's Westside in the old brick St. Pete's Hospital. She spent her childhood near the Boston Harbor area and graduated from Olympia High School. Actively engaged in youth sports (soccer, basketball & fast pitch) led Rhonda to be ultra competitive. At 19 she left Olympia and moved to Santa Monica, California to work for a law firm and attend college. A few years later she followed her boyfriend who was in the Navy to San Diego where she continued to work as a paralegal in land use and construction defect law. She then found her current husband of 25 years and moved back to Olympia. Rhonda and her husband have two boys ages 21 and 17, two orange cats and a 14-year old golden retriever/lab. Experience matters - Rhonda has spent the past 18 years representing buyers and sellers in Thurston, Mason, Lewis, Pierce, King and Grays Harbor counties. From first time buyers, to clients moving up or helping an estate sell their precious family home. Rhonda provides the same level of service to all of her clients. She is most proud of her communication skills and always being available to answer her clients' questions. She works hard, seven days a week sometimes, just to ensure success for her clients. When you work with Rhonda, you will communicate directly with her throughout your entire transaction. She provides personal service and you will always know where you are with your transaction. Rhonda has owned and renovated several homes including rentals throughout the area. She's always happy to share the pitfalls and success of home ownership with her clients. She truly believes that real estate is one of the best ways to make money and the American
dream. Giving back - Rhonda is proud volunteer with Animal Services of Thurston County as she offers her home to foster kittens. Over the years Rhonda has also volunteered delivering meals on wheels with Senior Services. Most recently when the Covid stay home orders were issued, Rhonda traveled to Lewis County to help the Senior Services and the United Way to deliver meals to seniors who were home bound. Rhonda is a huge believer in outdoor spaces for all to enjoy. She volunteered on the small board "Friends of LBA Woods" who fought hard to save the LBA Woods from being developed into 800 homes. The group convinced the City of Olympia to purchase 150 acres to preserve for open space. Ultimately, this group went on to successfully pass the City of Olympia's first metropolitan parks district. She'll tell you as a young mother of two very active boys, parks saved her life and sanity. "I always tell my husband that if we ever win the big lottery I'll make sure the City of Olympia gets it's first ever indoor/outdoor swimming pool along and a killer skate park." "Work hard, play harder" In keeping with her love for the outdoors, Rhonda spends a lot of time in her garden tending to her some of her favorite flowers - Dahlias. She recently converted her entire garden to only flowers in an effort to provide extra food for her honey bee hives. In winter you can find her swishing down the slopes at various ski resorts. In summer time you'll find her tucked in a kayak paddling the sound or hiking to find the next fire lookout or waterfall."Great Agent who met all of her commitments and sold my house very quickly at a great price."Rhonda was knowledgeable, patient, caring, firm (when she needed to be!) and really great to work with. I will and have recommended her already!"

We had a great experience with Rhonda who helped us purchase our first house. She was professional, friendly and very responsive. Definitely recommend.
Rhonda is amazing to work with, have bought and sold with her and has been great experiences with her.
Rhonda guided us through our house hunting and new home purchase with such expertise and professionalism, it was not only stress free, but an enjoyable experience. Communication, whether by phone, text, or email, was quick and caring, sometimes in response to our questions or concerns, and even offering helpful suggestions when design decisions had to be made. A great agent in every way, and a very nice person!
We used Rhonda as a buyers' agent to find a home for our growing family. She showed us so many homes we thought we would never find "the one." When we did, Rhonda was on our side. She negotiated our offer with the seller and got us a great price on our home. It was so nice having someone on our side to consult about all our questions. We never had the feeling that we were in the dark about the process. We would recommend Rhonda for anyone looking to buy a home.
