More About Me

Meet Claudia Gentzkow - REALTOR® Ⅰ Broker

A Northwest Native, resident and Broker since 1999

Claudia is considered a locally recognized waterfront and saltwater homes property specialist serving sellers and buyers of homes through every step along the real estate way.

She has earned her National Association of REALTORS® SRES® senior designation and is an approved Windermere Senior Transition Specialist, equipping her to advise 50+ individuals and families on upsizing, downsizing, relocating and aging in place decisions.

Marketing & Communications

She has embraced the new age of internet "marketing" leaving what was known as "advertising" behind. Her methods are specific and targeted, with extreme attention to professional staging, drone photography, video and virtual tours. She's selective in her pricing and just which features get highlighted. She's big on out of the box thinking and not one method fits all.

Claudia is proud to be affiliated with Windermere Real Estate, with access to research data tools, global reach for marketing and expansive network of like-minded professionals. 

Saltwaterhomes, her personal web based real estate and business storefront is just one location where homes get showcased. While easy to navigate and save searches, this also makes it a great place for buyers to research properties of all shapes, sizes and prices.

Design

With a degree in Interior Architecture from the University of Oregon, she has had a 20+ year career in architecture, design and  retail marketing. The last formal position held was at NIKE, where she had an image design position in global retail design and management. It is because of her prior experience that she's adept to trading hats. She'll tell you that it has truly been an unplanned blessing entering the field of real estate.

Her strength in space planning and studying how people move through spaces, why they feel comfortable, or not, the art of why we buy and working to move consumers to purchase, has been a huge asset in her current business. Claudia will tell you that it's a beautiful thing when a buyer or seller realizes that value and leans into it and where she gets to be a complete real estate advisor and not just a sales person.

Business

She's big on dreams and helping her clients fulfill them, yet  she never leaves out the "business and financial sense for you", piece. She knows that a purchase and sale of a property is a BIG one, whether for residence, investment or both.

She has an “all about you” approach to meeting your real estate needs, and realizes that the path for most may never be straight! 

With a constantly changing industry, she's a firm believer that reaching out WELL before you think you're ready to buy or sell is time well spent. It costs you nothing and the rewards await you! How soon? 1 month, 6 months, 1 year, 5 years. It all works for her!
