Windermere Real Estate has opened a new Tacoma-area office, its fourth in and around the City of Destiny.

Located in Old Town at 2200 North 30th Street, the new office will be co-owned by Anne Jones, Kevin Mullin and Michael Robinson. Jones, who started her real estate career in 2007 and has been with Windermere since 2012, will be the location’s designated broker.

“I really enjoy selling real estate, but as time went on I found myself wanting to have a different impact on the industry,” said Jones. “There are a lot of conversations happening right now about needing more women in leadership positions in the real estate industry. So, when I was approached, I not only saw it as a great opportunity, but I felt an obligation to step up,” said Jones.

 Mullin, who also co-owns several Windermere offices in the Tacoma area with business partner Robinson, said that becoming an owner seemed like the natural next step for Jones.

“Anne has been a leader both locally and nationally in the real estate industry, and it seemed to be a natural progression for her to have her own office to further develop and expand the unique marketing techniques and tools she has developed over the years,” said Mullin.

Jones said the office is opening with nine brokers, with plans to grow.
