Why Windermere?


In 1972, John Jacobi set out to change the real estate industry by putting relationships before sales quotas, with an emphasis on service to our clients and our community. Over  40 years later, this mission has helped grow Windermere into one of the largest independent real estate companies in the nation, with more than 300 offices and 7,000 agents throughout the Western U.S. and Mexico.

What this means for you:

  • Exceptional service
  • Unsurpassed integrity
  • A strict code of ethics
  • Locally owned and operated offices
  • Neighborhood knowledge
  • Market expertise
  • Premium tools and services
  • Giving back to our communities

While the real estate industry has changed substantially over the years, our core values of relationships, community, collaboration, and professionalism have remained central to how we do business, and will continue to do so for years to come.

Within these core values is an outline of how we believe our clients deserve and expect  to be treated. It is intended to provide total transparency about how we do business, while letting our clients know that Windermere agents hold themselves to an even higher level of competence and accountability.

How We Give Back

Every year, Windermere closes its offices for one day to help make a positive  difference in our local communities. It all started in 1984 when a handful of Windermere owners and agents came together to make repairs at a local elementary school. Thirty years and more than one million hours of community service later, we’ve continued this tradition through neighborhood-­‐enhancing projects in the areas where our Windermere teams live and work.
