We had the good fortune of connecting with Misty Matisons and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Misty, how do you define success?
Success is truly a measure within yourself. My husband asked me on a milestone birthday, how do you feel about turning this specific age in life? I am completely pleased and proud of my accomplishments. I am overjoyed at the unconditional commitment I have created with my spouse, the love and devotion for our child and creating his growth and prosperity. I am appreciative of the long standing and beautiful relationships I have curated with family and dear friends. I am incredibly gratified of my professional achievements and the woman I have become. Success is a level of fulfillment. Even though I am fulfilled, I will continue to always grow, further educate myself, overcome new challenges and expose myself to an ever-evolving world every day. Success is a constant reminder of how far I have come in life. It’s a measurement only you can establish and achieve.
 
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I am a multi-generational native Washingtonian practicing Real Estate in the Greater Seattle area. Understanding my client’s wants and needs along with offering exponential knowledge of our region is important in helping them transition into a new home. Washington has been an appealing state for decades, due to our temperate weather, stunning scenery and strong job market. Helping newcomers move to Washington or relocate within the region is key when using a Real Estate Broker that knows each region, neighborhood culture and commute times. I have always approached clients with relatability, honesty and nurture. I truly care about the clients I am helping and their futures. Our local real estate market is moving at such a fast pace, it is vital to partner with a broker that can address all facets of relocation, negotiation and making each transaction run smoothly in such a stressful environment.
 
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Visting the Pacific Northwest for the first time is spectacular! Starting off with a quick day trip to Pike’s Place Market overlooking Elliott Bay, visiting the flagship Starbuck’s location on its cobblestone street and grabbing a snack at Beecher’s Handmade Cheese. Finishing the downtown Seattle experience with an elevator ride to the top of the Space Needle and possibly a museum tour at the Museum of Flight, Chihuly Garden and Glass or the Museum of Pop Culture. Finalizing the night while slurping oysters at one of my favorites, The Walrus and Carpenter, The Whale Wins or Taylor Shellfish Oyster Bar in Seattle. Heading east on Interstate 90, towards the Cascade Mountain Range, to view the majestic Snoqualmie Falls and finishing with dinner at one of Seattle’s iconic restaurants, 13 Coins in downtown Bellevue. A one or two-day trip to the Olympic Peninsula, the Washington Coast or the San Juan Islands are some of the true gems of our region. Exploring Puget Sound’s south sound region is remarkable as well. Tacoma is a laid-back city overlooking beautiful Commencement Bay and towering Mount Rainier. Visting Tacoma’s iconic Point Defiance Park, Zoo and Aquarium, with hiking trails, beachfront parks and views of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. Washington has so many picturesque vantage points, it takes more than a week’s trip to fully indulge in our outdoor lifestyle.
 
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My husband is the only person in my life that has truly taken the time and effort to understand how I am built and my genuine intentions in life. I am a person that has always felt misunderstood. Like most, what I project on the outside is quite different than the thoughts procuring on the inside. He has truly believed in me, fully supported my goals and encouraged me to never stop flourishing and challenging myself. Without his constant, undeniable support and encouragement, I’m not quite sure if I would be as fulfilled as I am today. I will always be thankful for his presence in my life.
