Terri Smith, Broker
I am a lifelong resident of Seattle and love this amazing city! I started my career at Nordstrom where I learned the value of work ethic, integrity, dedication and commitment. After 18 years at Nordstrom I accepted a role to expand the footwear and handbag category at Amazon.com/Endless.com. My retail/ecommerce experience was exciting but I always had an interest in real estate entering the market as a broker in 2009. I continue to apply the knowledge and skills I learned in retail to my real estate business today.
Bailey, Chief Napping Officer (2002 – 2014)
Bailey was a founding member of W+A and served proudly Chief Napping Officer. His primary duties included carrying his own leash, sharing his toys and treats, and enjoying lots of afternoon naps. After 13 years of wonderful service, Bailey retired from W+A to that great dog park in the sky in 2014.
Quincy, Chief Greeter (2015 – 2016)
Quincy joined W+A in 2015 as Chief Greeter and warmed the hearts of everyone who met him. After only a year of service, a better opportunity poached Quincy from W+A. (We suspect it was Bailey offering more money, better benefits – and the chance to play all day every day.)
Barqley, Goodwill Ambassador (2016 – Present)
Barqley joined W+A in 2016 as Goodwill Ambassador and his primary duties include welcoming new clients and sharing hugs and kisses. When he’s not working, Barqley loves swimming, chasing balls, and playing tug-of-war. He is proud to follow in the footsteps of his Uncle Bailey and Brother Quincy.
