Meet the Team
Chauntel’s past experiences have taught her the importance of resilient customer service and persistent teamwork. For her, it’s always been about people. You’ll find her listening, communicating, and managing all the details because she believes transactions should feel like a simple, streamlined process for her clients. She’s been in the business since 2002, and will attest that while nothing is predictable in real estate, anything is possible when you have passion and a solid team around you.
Chauntel’s husband and two kids light her world. Family time means fun time so they travel every chance they get, especially by boat and Harley. Her care and concern for family spills over into volunteer work — she loves mentoring children and helping people find their place in the world.
Need an advisor when the negotiation gets tough? Nikki is a fierce advocate, the savvy visionary who walks beside you each step of the way. With almost 20 years of industry experience, she’s been there, done that, knows the trends, knows the community, and knows how to help her clients secure a sound future. She is even a professional standards board member and a CCAR Director! Her Senior Real Estate Specialist designation means she understands and is well-versed in the financial and lifestyle transitions we all need to address for long-term planning.
But not every hour is spent in the office. On the off hours, there’s a good chance you’ll find Nikki out wine tasting with her man, or exploring all the nooks and crannies of the Pacific Northwest with her family. She’s also an active member of the Clark County Mural Society, advocating for more art and personality in our community.
Christy is both cheerleader and coach when it comes to finding a home — not only will she help you figure out exactly what you need, she’ll push everything through so that you get that perfect-for-you place. And if you’re selling, she’s already imagining ways to smooth the process for you. She’s a goal setter who thrives on the success of her whole team, which makes her a perfect fit with the SWB crew. Together, they’re forever brainstorming new ways to help people in their network pave the way to more balanced lives.
Christy just built her dream home — a place where family and friends (and horses) fit perfectly and lots of memories are being made. She knows that working hard pays off in spades, but so does taking time to enjoy the view. If she’s not at home, you’ll probably find her tackling the slopes or relaxing at the beach.
