About Jeff

Jeff Williams

With an MBA and twelve years of consumer marketing experience with companies such as Colgate Palmolive, Nestle and Warner Brothers, I knows what sells. Applying my marketing expertise to my work as a Realtor, I enjoyed average annual residential real estate sales in excess of $18 million during my tenure with Sotheby’s International Realty in Pasadena, California (2001-2010), and I've been a top producing broker with Windermere in Tacoma since 2010 with current sales with Mark in excess of $37 million annually.  I specialize in residential real estate sales in Tacoma, University Place, Lakewood and Gig Harbor and pride myself on delivering highly personalized service, working with a limited number of clients at any given time. I take the time to make sure I understand my client’s wants and needs, providing each with a customized plan to buy or sell their home. Importantly, clients are never delegated to an assistant.

I've been buying, renovating and selling historic homes since 1993 (more than 55 and counting), and I'm passionate about the restoration of classic architecture.  I am a past board member for Historic Tacoma, an organization dedicated to the preservation of Tacoma’s architectural treasures, and I currently serve as a city commissioner for Tacoma’s Landmarks Preservation Commission.  I also serve as the President of the Board of Trustees for the Tacoma Art Museum I'm on the Board of Trustees for the Pierce College Foundation.  I have owned and shown American quarter horses since childhood.  My show horses are in training at Summit View Ranch south of Roy, Washington. I also served as Board President of the Washington State Quarter Horse Association for a number of years.

About Mark

Mark Pinto

I began my career in residential real estate sales in 2003 as an agent with Sotheby’s International Realty in Los Angeles, and I've been affiliated with Windermere since moving to Tacoma in 2010. Representing buyers and sellers primarily in Tacoma, University Place and Gig Harbor, I am committed to delivering exceptional customer service.

Prior to my career in real estate, I worked as a cancer genetic counselor for Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Cedars-Sinai and USC. My counseling skills have served me well in real estate, enabling me to gently but effectively orient buyers and sellers to the increasingly complex housing market. I believe I provide my clients with invaluable guidance, helping them to prioritize their wants and needs.  Approximately 70% of my business is with repeat clients or clients who have been referred to me by others.

I earned a B.A. in English from Wesleyan University and an M.S. in Human Genetics from Sarah Lawrence College.  Past non-profit board and committee service has included Tacoma Arts Live, the Pierce County Library Foundation, the University of Washington Tacoma and the Greater Tacoma Community Foundation.  I’m currently serving on the board of trustees for Vashon Center for the Arts.
