Shawn was Amazing to work with. From beginning to end he was attentive to our needs and always made himself available. Shawn also works with a great Mortgage company and inspector. I trust Shawn completely that he has your best interest at heart and endorse him 100%!!!
— Lorene R., West Seattle
Shawn helped us both buy and sell our home. He was great throughout both processes. With his help we were able to get our offer in before another potential buyer and lock in the home. On the selling side, his marketing efforts brought in multiple offers which led to the sale of our home within 30 days of putting it on the market. He really understands the industry and works well with people. He’s a good mix of confident and personable. My wife and I were admittedly green to the whole industry.
Shawn helped us understand all the nuances and was always available to answer any questions we had.
We recommend Shawn to everyone we know.
— Jason W., Madrona
…If you want an agent who is honest, down to earth, friendly, and hard working...look no further, Geoff is your guy. I would recommend him to all of my friends who are in search of a home (in fact, I have and they loved him too!). I know when it’s time to sell my little Ballard oasis, Geoff will be my go-to guy. Seriously, if you need an Geoff now!
— Katelyn P., Ballard
I started a conversation with Geoff about buying my first home somewhere around four years ago, and along the way he’s exhibited more patience than I imagined possible in a human being, let alone a real estate agent. Every step of the way, his top priorities were making sure I was well informed and comfortable with the pace things were moving. I’d email him a question like, “Hey, what about house boats?” or “what do HOA dues cover?” and receive a prompt and amazingly thorough reply every time. When it came time to actually look at places, he was immediately responsive each time I found a candidate, and totally understanding each time I rejected one. Not even ever once for a single tiny moment did I feel any pressure to hurry up, and he always had a way of making me feel like I knew what I was doing. Now I live in the exact place I wanted. I’ve already recommended him to a friend, and will continue to do so. If you have the chance to hire Geoff, it would be a mistake not to.
— Patrick M., Seattle
We’ve worked with Shawn twice, buying and selling our first home. He was awesome. He helped us find the home that was right for us and helped us get it. Then, when the time came, he helped us sell in a challenging market. You couldn’t ask for anyone better than Shawn for your real-estate needs. He was helpful, informative, and is a go-getter.
— Rob D., Seattle
I have worked with Shawn to purchase two rental properties in the last two years. I have bought ten houses and sold seven houses. Shawn is the best real estate agent I have ever used. He is always available and responsive. He is very knowledgeable about construction issues including repair and maintenance issues and the quality of the construction. He is excellent at negotiating and communicating with the seller’s real estate agent which can be critical in securing the purchase agreement. He has a good sense of the property value. All in all Shawn is a pleasure to work with from both a personal and professional level.
— Daniel R., West Seattle

Geoff Hill | MANAGING Partner

Geoff doesn't believe in "selling" real estate. As counselor, advocate, strategist, analyst, and expert negotiator, Geoff's role with his clients could best be described as "master facilitator". Since 2006, Geoff has been facilitating successful real estate transactions for his clients in Seattle and beyond. 

The cornerstones of Geoff's approach to real estate are impeccable customer service, fierce loyalty to his clients, extraordinary skill for educating his clients on the home buying process, and an unwavering focus on rapid response to client needs. In real estate, "time is of the essence". Because of Geoff's "24/7/365" approach to real estate, Geoff's clients are often able to view a property in person, write an offer, submit it to the sellers, and get mutual acceptance, all before competing buyers have even had a chance to view the listing online. Whether it's sending the newest listings to his clients for review, arranging for them to tour a property, or preparing an offer for submission, Geoff prides himself on always being ready to move rapidly when circumstances require fast action. Rejecting high-pressure sales techniques in favor of honesty, Geoff believes that his candor with his clients engenders loyalty from them in return. 

Geoff is a Certified Financing Specialist and holds the Internet Marketing Specialist Designation. He was winner of his market center's 2011 Customer Service Award, is among's top Seattle agents, and is consistently among Keller Williams Greater Seattle's highest producing brokers (out of 138 agents).

Geoff was born and raised in Olympia, went to college for 3 years at Western Washington University in Bellingham, moved to Seattle in 1999, and graduated from the University of Washington in 2001, earning a bachelor's degree in Comparative Literature with a concentration in Cinema Studies. Geoff currently lives in the Roosevelt neighborhood of Seattle and works out of the Wallingford Keller Williams office. In addition to selling real estate, Geoff enjoys backpacking, snowboarding, tennis, racquetball, basketball, writing, playing board games, making candles, and making music. Rarely seen in a suit-jacket, Geoff prefers selling homes in jeans and a t-shirt.
