About Amy Wiberg
My Client-First Philosophy
There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.
That said, in my experience as a Puget Sound area real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.
This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.
So when you decide that you'd like to buy or sell a home in the Puget Sound area, please contact me.
Being a Realtor has been a wonderful experience! I love helping people, and I know that buying or selling real estate can cause worry and anxiety, and I am here to make that pressure disappear. I am honored to be a part of that process with my clients.
I was born in New Orleans, LA, and lived in southern Mississippi until I was three when my mom and I moved to southern Idaho. So, growing up I spent my winters in Idaho and my summers in Mississippi. Should have thought that arrangement through a little better?
I love my southern roots and all the yummy food that comes with it - red beans and rice, jambalaya, beignets, seafood, shrimp po'boys. I love the coast and the old southern homes. I adore the smell of the ocean and listening to the waves crashing in at night, or the sound of the frogs in the forest. My favorite pastime there was fishing with my dad, which we did at every opportunity.
I love my Idaho heritage as well. My great grandparents on my mom's side homesteaded a 1500 acre cattle ranch that I spent pretty much all of my free time at, whether it was on horseback "helping" my grandfather move cattle or "inspecting" my grandmother's vegetable garden while "QA testing" all of the ripe sun-warmed tomatoes and strawberries. So, I am also very much a meat and potatoes kind of girl. I love the smell of sagebrush after the rain. And I love horses, and being outdoors. Some of my favorite memories include that ranch, helping my grandfather move cattle and watching my grandmother make fresh bread.
I met a young man in kindergarten by the name of Carl, although neither of us realized that fact until years later. I do have the kindergarten class picture and am more than happy to show anyone who asks, in case there is curiosity as to what he looked like back in the early 80s. We went through school together, even rode the same bus, and eventually graduated high school together. He must have made me mad at some point, because I wrote "Jerk" across his picture in our 5th, 6th and 7th grade yearbooks. And all during that time, not once did he even ask me to a school dance. Brat. We actually didn't even run in the same crowds in school, so although we knew each other, we very rarely spoke.
After high school, I went on to college and got married (not to Carl...yet). Not long after the marriage, we decided to buy a home and we were lucky to meet a lady by the name of Penny, who walked with us every step through the process. And an interest was sparked within me. I wanted to be able to give that to others. To help them as they realized a dream and hope coming true. Unfortunately, I would not be able to follow that interest until much later.
Life went on as it does, and I became a mom to two amazing kids - Issak and Rebekah. So, my house was fun with three independent redheads living in it. I wouldn't have traded it for anything. A couple of years ago I attended my 20 year high school class reunion, and ended up laughing my evening away with a former classmate by the name of Carl. We began to date soon after, and I relocated to Gig Harbor to be with him after not one, but three, proposals.
We were married in June 2016, when he gave me two more kids as the best wedding present ever. Not long after, our family grew again - twice - when our oldest two met and married their own sweethearts. So, now we share 6 kids: Issak & Ali, Rebekah & Sterling, Carl John and MacKenzie, and two adorable grandkids - Archer and Layney. We also share 2 dogs, 1 cat and 3 goats.
I was finally able to pursue my interest in real estate in 2016. Since then, I have learned so much! In January of 2021, together with my amazing business partners/ friends we established Legacy Professionals Inc, and can't wait to see the phenomenal future we ALL build together!
