      Diane Terry
      At a time when ethics matter more than ever, when you want an agent who can’t be bought or sold…that agent is Diane Terry. She is precise, polished and prepared for everything. Her focus is her client not a text, a tweet or call. Taught early on in life to be a good listener, always ready to learn and certainly willing to give back to her community. She is a shining example of how to succeed in business by ‘caring’. This consummate professional has the heart of a teacher and selflessly shares her learned wisdom with other real estate professionals. Diane’s belief in mentoring (which she has done for many years) helps provide the public with a new breed of educated, thorough and thoughtful, honest and caring Realtors.

      She teaches and shares her knowledge with each client so they have control of the decision making process. Earning trust and loyalty with each transaction, Diane exceeds expectations.

      Educated in business at the University of Puget Sound, Diane spent nine years in international trade and transportation with Sea-Land Services. Sea-Land afforded her the opportunity to garner valuable negotiation and marketing skills. Customer service skills were honed from living day to day and treating others with joy, interest and respect. Whether it’s business, family or pleasure you would be well served to work with and associate with Diane Terry.

    • Ask Jacob
      As the senior financial consultant at JMB Financial Services, Jacob Proulx entered the financial services industry to help protect clients’ hard-earned money while giving as little as possible back to Uncle Sam. His main focus is to use sound financial strategies to minimize income taxes while protecting clients’ assets from stock market downturns. A former Boeing electrical engineer, Jacob is skilled at solving complex problems and explaining the solutions in an easy-to-understand fashion.

      Jacob became passionate about becoming a financial professional in 2008 when he witnessed the stock market wipe out trillions of dollars in IRA and 401(k) accounts. As a problem solver, Jacob knew that not everyone lost a huge chunk in the stock market, so he went on a search to find out why not everyone was devastated. His search unveiled a few financial strategies that never lose capital when the stock market drops, and yet receive gains when the stock market rises.

      Jacob worked in the mortgage lending industry before entering the financial services industry in 2007. He has since helped multiple individuals and their families in the greater Seattle area build smart financial portfolios. He is licensed in life and disability insurance in the state of Washington and is a member of Missed Fortune Producer Group. He has been featured on local news affiliates of ABC, NBC, Fox and CBS News for his financial experience and trusted guidance.

        Away from the office, Jacob enjoys playing softball, pool and golf and spending time with his family. He resides in Bonney Lake with his wife and is the proud father of two sons and three dogs: two pugs and a lab.

    • Ask Julie Price
      Julie has worked with hundreds of clients using the Financial Dashboard, a comprehensive and customized financial plan designed to help people prepare for, transition to, and navigate through retirement.

      Currently working? One worrisome question you might ask is whether you will have the same living standard in retirement that you have now while working. Julie helps clients answer questions like this with the Financial Dashboard, a plan that analyzes options like when to retire (or transition out of your business), when and how to start Social Security, whether to take the lump sum or a pension payment, how much to contribute to your retirement accounts and how to draw it down in retirement, and more. We work with you the whole way to help keep you on track.

      Already retired? The Financial Dashboard is also for you. It helps by determining a consistent living standard throughout the remainder of your life and what pace to draw down your savings. Maybe you’re looking ahead to some major financial changes like a new housing situation. With the Financial Dashboard, we can help evaluate multiple scenarios to help quantify your options and come up with a strategy designed to meet your retirement goals and objectives.

    • Ask Kristin
      Representing a client’s needs with regard to their real estate investments is the fulfillment of a decades-long dream. My experience as a commercial contractor for 20+ years – an exciting and high-risk industry – prepared me for an ever-changing situation environment. ASP staging credentials were earned after realizing I had actually staged my whole life! And finally, the CMPS lending designation is vital in helping clarify that part of your transaction. My list of preferred referral partners – from inspectors to investors – is at your disposal to assist us in making your first-time journey or your tenth through the transaction process a good experience. Additionally, having sat on the other side of the table myself multiple times negotiating real estate contracts gives me a unique perspective from which to negotiate in my client’s best interest. I would be honored and delighted to make your real estate planning my first priority so your transactions, either selling or buying, position you well both fiscally and with respect to Puget Sound’s unparalleled lifestyle.

    • Ask Ted Butler
      Helping you move from "Opinion to Knowledge", and just as importantly move from "Knowledge to Understanding" with the FHA Home Equity Conversion Mortgage, the modern Reverse Mortgage.

      As a Home Equity Retirement Specialist my primary focus is in assisting recent or soon to be retirees help make sure that they have enough cash flow to last their entire retirement.

      In addition I spend time working with planners and advisors to help insure cash flow survival in the retirement distribution phase. Recent articles from the Journal of Financial Planning show that housing wealth can play a key role in mitigating sequence of returns risk and reverse dollar cost averaging.

      And I am a certified Continuing Education instructor with the American CE Institute and work with Certified Financial Planners, Financial Advisors, Insurance Specialists, Realtors and Builders teaching the use of the FHA HECM as a planning and purchase finance option.

      In service, and gratitude.
