Tanya Thackeray Wilson, Realtor, Advocate, Design Enthusiast
Background and Experience
Before starting my career in residential real estate, I was an analyst for a commercial property developer, specializing in valuation of their existing real estate portfolio and potential acquisitions. Prior to that, I was in retail marketing and management for Timex Watch Company. The business acumen I developed in these two roles has enabled me to successfully represent buyers and sellers during seismic shifts in the real estate market over the past fifteen years. Having persevered through buyers’ markets, sellers’ markets, and everything in between, I am confident that I can deliver optimal results for my clients in any climate.
My marketing, negotiation, and analytical skills are essential to creating value for my clients, but my focus on communication, problem solving and attention to detail are also critical components of my process. As your advocate, you can expect me to know your priorities and preferences, anticipate your needs, respond to questions and requests quickly and thoroughly, and keep the process moving smoothly. For buyers, I truly delight in finding a home and neighborhood in which you are excited to live. And for sellers, I will work tirelessly to prepare your property for maximum appeal. Purchasing or selling a home is a significant financial decision and life event that I am uniquely skilled at handling. I am proud to have built a business that is fueled primarily by recommendations from past clients.
After my family and binge watching TV dramas, residential architecture and design are my greatest loves. In 2005, I followed my passion for architecture and design and joined Windermere Real Estate and 360 Modern, a consortium of brokers who specialize in finding and marketing modern homes. I spent my early days as a new agent scouring the neighborhoods for hidden modern gems. Soon enough, I developed a comprehensive knowledge of the modern pockets of Seattle, not to mention a mental map of the best eateries. Over the years, my architectural tastes have broadened dramatically as I’ve helped buyers and sellers of many different styles of home.
In 2016 I left 360 Modern and partnered with my husband, Aaron, to form Inhabit Northwest. While we’re still passionate about design, our primary focus is on killer customer service and consistent community involvement. Clients working with us get the benefit of a two-person team. I handle the majority of client interactions, but if you see a tall, handsome man staging your house or setting up open house signs, that’s my husband, Aaron. Having lived in many homes during our single, married, and now family years, we understand that finding your perfect home starts with finding your perfect neighborhood. We now make our home in Wedgwood with our spoiled dog, Mia, and our two daughters, who both attend wonderful public schools nearby. Our professional associations, social connections, and volunteer efforts give us unique insight into the amenities and vibe of Seattle’s many pockets.
