About Us


Our commercial and managing broker, Hollie Del Vecchio, is a real estate attorney (and former land use professor) with nearly a decade of experience in all aspects of business and land transactions. Her background uniquely bridges community revitalization, property rights, and agricultural preservation.

Our residential broker, Nanette Meade, has many years' experience helping families find their forever homes. She is familiar with Snohomish and Skagit Counties, and has a unique background in condos and other common interest communities.


Instead of the traditional 3% commission, we charge a base commission of $5,000 for residential properties, or $8,500 for commercial properties, plus 1% of the purchase price (or the seller-offered commission, whichever is less). This structure saves the typical buyer or seller thousands of dollars. 


For example, if you're buying a home for $500,000, then our commission of $10,000 saves you $5,000 compared to the typical 3% commission of $15,000. 


Mainstay is a mother-daughter (ad)venture, based in our home town of Sedro-Woolley, Washington.


We are not simply selling properties. We understand that every person and business is unique. We want to match you with the right property. This means not only finding a well-suited property, but making sure the due diligence process is tailored and thorough.
