About Me

My favorite thing after 20 years in real estate is being a powerful advocate for my clients best interest.

Helping them style and prep their home for market, advising them on how to make a great offer and win that new home, and being a long term advisor… All these things are what I love most about helping my clients buy and sell their homes and investment properties.

“In the past 15 years, we have bought/sold three houses with Chad Zinda. There is clearly a reason why we continue working with Chad … he’s the best! Most recently, Chad’s depth of experience was evident in the strategic advice and shrewd negotiating skills that he brought to the sale process. From recommending stagers and advising on pre-sale home improvements to setting the listing price and negotiating with potential buyers — Chad was right there, right on target. The results surpassed our expectations.”

My Listings

“I had met Chad several times at a friend’s gatherings, and decided to employ his services to help me find a home to purchase before it got to the point where I wouldn’t be able to afford one in or around Seattle. From day one, he was on top of his game. He understood from our conversations what type of home and where I was interested in purchasing, and sent me listings specifically tailored to my preferences. Every single house I looked at and liked, and was possibly interested in making an offer on, he also wanted to see it. And I relied heavily on his experience of structuring very competitive offers in Seattle’s very tough market.

The house I purchased recently I had seen briefly at an open house on a Saturday or Sunday, and had quickly discredited it because of its large size and exceptional interior quality. I thought for sure it would sell for much more than I would ever be able to afford. The following Wednesday it was still listed, however, I was in Iowa on business. I called the listing agent and she confirmed it was still listed, and that the sellers had not had any offers. I quickly called Chad and asked if he could get in to see the house as I was possibly interested in making an offer. He didn’t hesitate, and left his office and went straight to see the house. He confirmed what I already knew about the home, and we talked the details of the offer I was going to make.

Within just a few hours, and some back and forth of signing documents electronically, I was in contract to purchase the home. Chad made the entire process extremely easy and very comfortable. He made himself available to communicate at all times of the day and night. He was committed to me purchasing the right home at a fair price. He also referred me to a lender, someone he has worked with over the years and trusts, who also made the transaction of purchasing a home painless and transparent. And to top it off, he had a home and sewer inspector at the home just 1.5 days after the seller accepted my offer.

Thank you, Chad! It was truly a pleasure working with you.”
