Jim Perry- Owner Managing Broker Olympia Office
Jim started his real estate career back in the 1990s as an investor in real estate; he soon found his calling in the business and received his real estate license in the State of California originally. After moving his family up to the State of Washington in 2004, he quickly advanced and became successful in the Tacoma and University Place, WA area where his wife’s family had a long history. The idea of opening his own real estate firm was not a novel idea in 2018. Jim had started planning to open a real estate firm as early as 2008 and continued over the next 10 years planning and dreaming what his best version of a real estate firm would be. Hence, Jet Realty was born. He follows very closely to Jet Realty’s mission and that is that Jet Realty strives to offer its agents the best broker care via time and training. With this training the agents in turn can give their clients top quality service.

Originally a California girl, Stacy and her family moved to Olympia in 2010 for a new adventure. Upon settling in, Stacy started working at Washington Mutual Bank as a Senior Loan Representative and realized she loved being a part of getting her clients into their dream home. But just being part of the financial process wasn’t enough for her at the time. Being a people person, she decided she wanted to be with clients every step of the way, and she became a real estate broker three years ago, now loving every second of it.
When she’s not helping other people realize their real estate dreams, Stacy’s self-proclaimed gypsy soul can be found traveling and dreaming about travel. In fact, she says that her perfect day would be on a picturesque beach with a piña colada in one hand and a book in the other.
After spending most of her life in the High Desert of California, Stacy found Washington state mesmerizing, and she still can’t get over how green everything is. Stacy and her husband, along with their two fabulous little (not so little) teenage daughters, have made their home in Olympia. Stacy hopes she can help find you the perfect piece of the Northwest Lifestyle as well.

Stacey can tell you she has strong negotiating skills, local market knowledge, and more, but the most important thing she wants to share with her clients, the most important thing she can provide in your home sale or purchase, is her passion. Stacey didn’t get into the real estate industry just to make money – she got into the industry because she fell in love with it. She fell in love with getting to know the homes, the flexibility in schedule that it affords her to be able to work for you, all while sharing time with her family. Stacey fell in love with hearing people’s stories, really getting to know their needs for their futures, and focusing on ensuring you find a home that actually meets those future goals. Real estate can be a stressful thing, and it can be more difficult if you don’t have someone to partner with who takes the time to understand that.
Stacey’s business goes beyond the professionalism she brings to the table, the knowledge about local market and communities and past the number of sales she’s made thus far. Instead, it prioritizes you. How much can you afford? What motivates you? What do you HAVE to have to make this big transition in your life? You need a real estate agent who understands that and seeks to know the answer to those questions, along with all of the other important ones that make buying and selling a reality for
you. Grab coffee with Stacey and talk about your real estate goals. Stacey will get
to know your needs, she’ll share the amazing experience she can provide, and she’ll make sure your next move is in the right direction. You don’t need a computer to find your dream house. You need a professional partner who has your best interest at heart from the moment you call to even after the house is closed. Stacey wants to do more than just selling homes in Thurston
County and beyond. She’s helping you bring your dream home to life.

Maggie is a driven individual who constantly strives to learn from and build those around her. She is eager to gain experience in personal growth, leadership qualities and knowledge from any opportunity that will present itself in a day. It is not difficult to see that she can express her eagerness to do so through her accomplishments in her elite athletic career, education and prior working experiences.
As a former, collegiate women’s soccer player, Maggie has demonstrated a strong passion for success. Entrusted with the role as her team’s captain after obtaining numerous, prestigious awards throughout her early freshman and sophomore years, a strong ability to effectively organize and complete established priorities of her team, helped to provide others with similar success. Along with the responsibilities of providing her team with leadership, she was compelled to implement constructive feedback to her team in order to induce a productive environment for growth, resulting in an accomplished team.
The University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, TX is where Maggie left the great state of Washington to study biology. She has a deep passion for helping others, so her aspirations to be an orthodontist would allow her to do just that. While she was at the university, she studied other subjects. Amongst them were math, physics, kinesiology and education. Courses in kinesiology allowed her to see the world of the educational society and her passion to be an orthodontist became a passion to teach and help children grow and develop into society’s brightest generation.
