The People People
The People People are a duo that work in tandem and cater to two types of people: friends who become clients and clients who become friends. Beyond that, their clients are first time home buyers and sellers, seasoned real estate investors, lifelong Pacific Northwesterners, transplants, and new arrivals.
Gretta sees the full potential of a property from restoration to resale. Courtney sees if you’re in love with it, simply happy, kind of nervous, or ready to run. They will keep you calm, laughing, and enjoying every step between where you are now and the front door of your next home. Whether you’re buying, selling or both, they’ve gotcha.
“It is obvious they love what they do, and deeply care about their clients. One gets the sense this isn’t just a business transaction to them, but a chance to unite people with homes they will love and live well in. They really are The People People!”
Gretta and Courtney reside in Tacoma, WA and work along the I-5 corridor from Seattle to Olympia. In their spare time, they enjoy dining out with friends and family, trying all the new restaurants and revisiting favorite oldies.

"When my family began looking for our first home, we spent a good deal of time researching and checking out prospects around town. It soon became clear no one was going to talk to us without some sort of representation. We talked to a few real estate agents and found them impersonal and generally unmotivated. Then we started working with Gretta and Courtney and everything changed. And fast! We went from nearly giving up to finding the perfect place in a matter of days. The entire process from initial offer to closing was an absolute breeze. We adore and admire them as people and as agents they're the only agents we would ever want to work with, and the only ones we would ever recommend."

"My partner and I were looking to purchase our first multi-family investment property. Gretta and Courtney worked with us to find the perfect property that met our needs and budget. They were strong advocates on our behalf with the sellers in a very competitive group of buyers. We feel that Gretta and Courtney’s open and honest relationship building skills are how we were the chosen buyer. We have had two purchases with them (so far) and strongly recommend them for your purchase or sale."

"Courtney and Gretta turned the daunting first time home buyers experience into a fun and meaningful journey. They do not consider you a 'client' but a friend and as such they aren't trying to sell you a house as quickly as possible. Rather, they try to find your perfect home. They went above and beyond in search of my home until i found that magical one at a price i could afford in a location i dreamed of living. To say they are the best is simply misleading because they are in a class all their own. I am grateful they helped me find my home and couldn't imagine using someone else for my home buying/selling needs in the future."

"We rented the same house for years and were saddened to hear it was going to be put up for sale. We spoke with our neighbors Gretta & Courtney and they encouraged us to stop renting and buy the home we love in the neighborhood that is home. We hired them right away to help our dream to own a home a reality. We love our home and can't thank The People People enough."
