About Us

Meet Don & Susie Karstedt

We are Don & Susie Karstedt.
Rethinking Real Estate is our company.

After working for and managing a few of the larger real estate firms in the area, we decided to start something new. Something different.

By advancing our careers to total independence, we can now show our clients an exceptional level of personal service and attention to detail when they buy or sell their homes.


That’s why we put our past & present client feedback right on our website.

We want you to see how our experience, commitment, integrity and up-to-the-minute knowledge is why they choose us. In their words, not ours.

If you would like to know what it's like to work with us, we'll be happy to put you in contact with them directly. We know they won't mind, because they already refer their friends and family to us.

We have also found that our experience (real estate partners since 1999) works to our clients’ advantage.


Negotiations can be tough, but that’s why you have us.

We can help you navigate through different markets, foresee problems that might arise, and prevent them, ultimately resulting in a smoother transaction.

If you are a buyer, we help you to recognize the strengths and weaknesses of each property, and advise you on loan preparation, if needed.

If you are a seller, we stage and position your home on the market to its fullest potential to obtain top-dollar.


How do we find time to do all of this?

We don't spend time managing a lot of other agents, and we don’t take on a lot of clients at one time. Quality over quantity is important to us.

We appreciate you stopping by. We’d love for you to browse around, learn more about us, and view the properties we’re currently representing for sale or for rent.

You can even perform a search of the entire Northwest Multiple Listing Service with no strings attached. Listings and their current statuses are updated nightly.
