With a passion for interior decorating and gardening, REALTOR® and broker Annabel Kuppens began her career in real estate eight years ago. As an agent, she focuses on representing buyers and sellers of residential properties in Seattle and surrounding areas such as Lake Forest Park, Kenmore, Kirkland, Shoreline and South Snohomish County. Whether you’re looking for a new home or a premium large land lots in the north with downtown access, Annabel’s expertise and knowledge of the area will guide you. She believes strongly in helping the local community by being a resource to her clients every step of their real estate journey.

When it comes to finding new business, Annabel relies on open houses as well as referrals and repeat clients. Over the years, she has built a strong client base, particularly in her local community, of out-of-state clients and among foreigners who immigrated to the United States, like herself. Annabel is well travelled, having worked on cruise ships for many years. Her unique skill set includes her ability to understand the needs of people not just moving to a new city, but a new country. In addition to assisting with the buying and selling of homes, Annabel has a professional and social network that includes everyone from contractors and painters to hairdressers and childcare services. She’s an all-in-one resource for people moving to the Seattle area.

Annabel keeps in touch with her client base by phone, text, or email. She also sends out a monthly newsletter, tailored to meet her clients’ interests. Her goal is always to educate, not instruct. “You have to give them real information so that they can make the best decision,” she says. She makes it part of her routine to wish her clients a happy home-iversary and enjoys sending small gifts like magazine subscriptions to show her appreciation.

A large part of Annabel’s life is focused on caring for her son, who is immunocompromised with special needs. She’s an advocate for the special needs community and supports Northwest Child, which is a program geared to school-aged children with special needs. To keep her support ongoing, Annabel donates a percentage of proceeds from her sales to this organization. She’s working on having her company match her donations to make an even bigger impact. Annabel is also a strong supporter of the local Seattle Children’s Hospital and the Cerebral Palsy Foundation. With all the special needs resources she has gathered over the years, she helps other parents navigate the system to find what is best for their kids.

As for the future of her business, Annabel plans to continue to grow and expand her reach. She’s hoping to pursue the managing broker discipline, to increase her knowledge and skill set to bolster her existing business. For now, she’s focused on making her clients 100% satisfied — that’s what motivates her every day. “Being able to help a client and to see their eyes light up after the conclusion of a successful sale is the best reward.”
