Geordie and Allyson Romer - Icicle Creek Homes Real Estate

Real Estate brokers Geordie and Allyson Romer have been serving clients in the Wenatchee Valley real estate market for over a decade. Together, these real estate agents work tirelessly to stay on top of the regional market and present the most relevant opportunities to their clientele.

When not in the office, they can be found exploring the endless recreation opportunities of the area in all of its seasons.

 

Geordie Romer

I am a Washington native, born in Seattle and raised in Olympia. I am a graduate of Middlebury College in Vermont where I earned a B.A. in Environmental Studies and Political Science.

Prior to real estate I spent nearly a decade as a park ranger in our National Parks. My work included law enforcement, search and rescue, emergency medicine and wildland firefighting. The values of trust, teamwork, and determination are ones I bring with me to real estate.

I enjoy getting out in the mountains around Leavenworth in any way I can. I am an active telemark and cross country skier and hiker. In the past I was a climber and alpinist with visits to the Canadian Rockies and to the Bolivian Andes.

In recent years, I have rekindled my love of competitive cycling.  I mostly race on the road and cyclocross, but have been known to find my way onto velodrome as well.

Why Work With Me?

I am one of only a dozen of real estate agents in the Wenatchee Valley to earn the coveted Certified Residential Specialist designation from the Council of Residential Specialists.  Only 4% of Realtors nationwide hold the designation which requires numerous advanced real estate classes and requires real world sales experience. The CRS Designation is often known as the Phd of real estate. It’s not surprising that these 4% handle 25% of all residential transactions in the United States.

In 2011, I earned my Managing Broker’s license from the state of Washington.

I have also earned the e-PRO designation from the National Association of REALTORS and am one of only a handful of Windermere brokers in Eastern Washington to be named a Premier Associate for my expertise in the luxury property market.

Much of my experience and expertise is in internet marketing. I have been blogging about Leavenworth’s real estate market and trends for since 2005 (previously at MyLeavenworth.com). I have been a featured writer for the Seattle PI on their real estate professionals blog. In 2008, I was nominated as one of the most Tech Savvy Businesses of the Year by the Greater Wenatchee Area Technology Alliance.  I am always looking for ways to help my customers through the use of technology – whether that means using social media like Twitter or by creating videos and virtual tours to give buyers a better look at local homes.

In 2006 my peers named me to the Board of Directors for the North Central Washington Association of Realtors where I served as the Director for Governmental Affairs for Chelan County.  Geordie served on the Board of the Chelan-Douglas Land Trust for nine years including two years as the President of the Board.

Allyson Zacharko Romer

I was born in Winnipeg, Canada, and grew up outside of Denver, CO. I graduated from Colorado State University with a B.S. in Forest Management. I have worked in both public and private forest industry, mainly with the US Forest Service. Most recently, I was on the Wenatchee Valley Rappel Crew, fighting forest fires by rappelling out of helicopters in remote areas.

In 2003 I earned a Canadian Commercial Pilot License and spent two summers as a bush pilot in NW Ontario flying float planes.

I first came to Leavenworth the summer of 2001 as a firefighter on  the Icicle Creek Complex. Like many, I fell in love with the area and all the opportunities it has to offer. I take advantage of the extensive climbing and hiking trails up Icicle Canyon, and the close proximity to Stevens Pass for skiing.

Why Work with Me?

Real Estate is about helping people: Helping first time home buyers through their first home buying experience, helping people sell their homes so they can move on to the next step in their life, helping families find their special vacation spot.

I enjoy the human emotions that surround these decisions, especially with vacation homes.  Having had a family vacation home when I was young, I know the special joy a cabin can bring by creating memories and experiences that last a life time.

As buyers’ agents, we will work to find the property that is right for you.  When the time comes, our teamwork and communication will strive to make buying your property an easy and efficient experience.

As a seller’s agent, I am committed to hard work and open lines of communication.  Selling a home can be emotional and I strive to make the transition to a new residence stress-free and simple.

Testimonials

 

  Geordie recently helped us buy a condo in Leavenworth, a complicated transaction that involved a great deal of negotiating and dealing with multiple parties. Geordie went above and beyond to help us conclude the sale. His response time in dealing with issues and making contacts was very quick, his helpfulness and positive attitude was greatly appreciated and made the process a pleasure. Geordie has an excellent knowledge of the Leavenworth market. We would use him again in a heartbeat.

 Geordie is very professional and thorough. Good communicator, he clearly explained to us the details and steps of the selling process. He gave us good advice on how to present the property for sale. He kept us very well informed on the several offers (5) that we received in just 2 days from the day it was listed. The property sold very quickly at above the asking price and without inspection.

 Excellent marketing of our home, beautiful online tour, stunning brochure. The home had multiple offers within a day, and we had a contract within two. Maybe we could have gotten a bit more for the house, but we were very satisfied with the experience. Fast forward a year. We decide to buy a condo, and of course, contact Allyson. This was not an easy or straightforward process, at all. We found a complex we loved, and put in an offer. The complex was not yet approved for Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac financing, so we had to go through the process...which took six months. The seller of the unit we wanted didn't want to wait, and sold it to someone else. So we put in an offer on a different unit, and waited. There were some paperwork snafus, but in the end, we negotiated a pretty good deal on the unit and finally closed. Through it all, Allyson was on top of things. She always responded very quickly to communications, and kept us posted on where we were in the process. I highly recommend this agent, and if we sell or purchase in the area again, we will certainly use her.

 Geordie was fantastic! We purchased our new condo home just before Thanksgiving 2014. However the road there was convoluted and Geordie saw us through every hurdle without fail. Truly a fine gentleman and a pleasure to work with. This guy is "aces" in our book. Thank you Geordie!

Allyson helped us find a condo that met our needs and desires. She listened and understood what we said. She showed us a number of attractive units that came close to meeting our expectations and kept us informed regarding new listings. Eventually she showed us the unit that is now our home. During the rather complex process of negotiation, inspection and more negotation, selection of a loan officer, etc. she offered sound reliable advice. After the condo sale was completed and we had moved in we listed our house with Allyson. She handled the listing in a most professional manner, including great professional photographs and solid follow up with other agents who showed the property. She advised us to make a minor change when negative comments were made about a feature in one of the downstairs rooms. When a serious offer was made, she again guided us through the process. The house sold for a fair price in a very difficult market.
