Allen and Kristin Minner work together as Team Minner. Allen began his real estate career in 1991 and became a Managing Broker in 1993. Kristin started her real estate career in 1994 and they have worked together since then helping hundreds of people with real estate transactions.
Allen and Kristin live in the Snoqualmie Valley on acreage in a 1920’s Craftsman Bungalow that they moved and remodeled. They enjoy helping their clients with real estate not only during the transaction, but also during their ownership. They often help clients make decisions on improvements to make to increase their enjoyment of their property, and to increase resale value, too. While most of time they work in King County they have helped clients from Blaine, to Olympia, and Bainbridge Island to Ellensburg. They are also part of the Relocation Network the Leading Real Estate Companies of the world so they can help you find an agent anywhere in the world.
Allen and Kristin are Relocation Specialists and have experience with starter homes up to luxury homes, homes on acreage, vacant land, and condominiums. They enjoy helping potential buyers learn about the home buying process and the right property for them. While they are helping buyers they also have in mind, the future when the property is sold again. Not only do they want their clients to enjoy and prosper in their new home, but also understand the investment potential. When working with sellers they have a knack for helping the sellers appreciate the positive aspects to their property and showcasing it in the best possible way to maximize their return on investment.
In addition to raising their two children, one in Technical college and one still in high school and at home with special needs, Allen and Kristin make time for hobbies.
Allen enjoys classic Land Rovers. He helped his son, Dean, rehab an 1972 Series III Land Rover when he was 15 years old. The truck has been on 6 continents with the previous owner and had a lot of field repairs. They got the truck in great mechanical shape while leaving the hard earned patina of years of exploration. Allen also enjoys his Range Rover Classic complete with Zebra strips, reminiscent to the stripes used on Land Rovers in Africa.
Allen also enjoys fishing, sailing and power boating.
Kristin and Allen also enjoy spending time on Gabriola Island in British Columbia with family several times a year with boating, crabbing and geocaching as integral activities.
Kristin’s passions are gardening, hiking, woodworking projects, yoga and photography. Her initial interest in building and architecture started back in 6th grade when her mother designed their 1970’s NW Contemporary home in Yakima, WA. Kristin loves learning about trends in home and garden design and spending time nurturing her garden and photographing plants, scenery and people.
They met while in college in Tacoma, WA and both graduated from the University of Puget Sound in 1983 with Business Degrees, with concentrations in Management, Marketing and Psychology between them.
