Steven Thomson knows about marketing and merchandising — both in fashion, international modeling and real estate. He entered real estate 15 years ago while in search of a profession with less travel.
“I was looking for a career where I could use my creative and merchandising experience as was well as my education and enthusiasm of asset markets,” he explained.
“I was starting a new family and wanted to be around for all the special moments.”
His exposure from modeling, art directing, and styling translated well into real estate in regards to understanding a property and the aesthetic way in which to present it. He has leveraged that experience into successfully marketing properties to outpace the market’s selling averages in both market time and listing to sales price ratios.
“I make sure my listings stand out by first merchandising, or staging, the property then use a variety of professional photography to convey the home in its best light as the first and most important showing is online.”
A strong negotiator, he also provides keen knowledge of the local market, a skilled value analysis and the ability to guide clients through the transaction smoothly. Combined with the desire to supersede his client’s expectations and provide a level of service that conveys total satisfaction, he is driven by a strong sense of integrity and accountability. To Thomson, the most rewarding part of his career is the satisfaction he derives from helping people achieve their goals.
“I am completely committed to a successful outcome and achieving my clients’ goals, Thomson says.
Thomson is a member of the International Presidents Circle which represents the top 6 percent of Coldwell Banker sales associates worldwide. He majored in Economics and Finance at Western Washington University. While attending school, he worked as a sales associate at Nordstrom, where he was recognized as a company leader in customer service.
