Managing Broker, CSP
Exceptional Service, spanning 27 years
As a John L. Scott broker, my mission is transactional excellence and client satisfaction. That means I work tirelessly to make your home buying or selling process as efficient, stress-free and lucrative for you as possible.
Wendy Carrington is an action-oriented broker who is committed to being responsive and attentive to the specific needs and goals of each client. With a background in property management, she experienced firsthand how providing outstanding service made a difference in the lives of every resident. She obtained her real estate license shortly after attending the University of Washington, more than 25 years ago. Since then, Wendy has dedicated her career to helping sellers get the best price and terms for their home sale, and helping buyers find the perfect home for their needs.
Wendy is the co-founder of the Carrington Durr Group with her co-founding partner Van Durr and team members Zoe Durr and Jackie Kelly, out of the John L. Scott South Lake Union office. She represents buyers and sellers assisting with single-family homes, condominiums, multi-family and commercial real estate needs in the greater Seattle area including Broadview, downtown Seattle, Green Lake, Maple Leaf and Ballard.
Following up with all parties involved in the transaction and communicating these updates to clients is an integral part of Wendy’s business. This process can often take its toll on a client, whether they are buying or selling, so Wendy knows how important it is to have clear and consistent communication. Her dedication to service has resulted in hundreds of successful transactions as well as lifelong clients and multiple top producer awards.
Wendy has given back to her community by volunteering over the years at her church for different community events such as the Bite of Broadview. She has also coached the speech team at her son’s school and volunteers with her office to help prepare and serve dinners for the Ronald McDonald House. Additionally, the Carrington Durr Group created a giving program, donating to their clients’ charities.
In her free time, Wendy and her family are passionate about traveling the world and exploring new cultures.
Seattle is a fantastic city for a lot of reasons, but one of the best things about it is the natural beauty that surrounds us. Nothing beats a crystal clear day when you can see the Olympic Mountains and Mount Rainier. But even on rainy days which, yes, we do have a few of here, the views of Puget Sound and Lake Washington are breathtaking. Seattle has a rainy reputation, but our best kept secret is how spectacular our summers are. While a lot of the country is sweltering with heat and humidity, we're basking in the perfect warm days and our long summer days allow us to enjoy water sports, hiking and cycling and tending to our gardens. In the winter, skiing and snowboarding are only an hour away. People recognize Seattle by the Space Needle and Pike Place Market, but we also have a thriving arts and cultural scene, great art museums, symphony, opera, and ballet.
“We couldn’t recommend Wendy more highly. Wendy and her partner Van were always positive and helpful about the marketing process but they didn't sugar coat anything. They were careful to explain that while they expected the house to sell quickly, it was the market that would ultimately determine the results, and that was a difficult thing to predict much less guarantee. Wendy and Van’s recommendation on pricing for the market was spot-on and the house sold in five days. The staging company Wendy used was excellent when it came to showing off the house at its best and Wendy was also able to recommend both a painter and a mover who helped us get out of the house before it went on the market. We couldn’t have done that on our own and the people she suggested were professional, friendly and cheerful. It was a pleasure to work with Wendy from the beginning of the process to the end.”
“Wendy is the epitome of a gracious professional. She has extensive knowledge in her field (20+ years) and it shows! We had a tricky negotiation with our house purchase and she came up with an innovative solution that worked for all parties. She is a terrific communicator and her team is really easy to work with as well! We will highly recommend her to friends and family.”
