Elisa Wirkala (she/her/hers)
Real Estate Broker
A realtor and outdoor-enthusiast with an MA and BA in teaching and geography, Elisa moved to Seattle in 1987 and is a UW alum. She returned to Seattle in 2017 after a years-long around the world motorcycle journey that gave her a deep appreciation for finding home, and a knack for navigating high stress and ever-changing situations.
She's used her experience on the road and her Master's in Teaching degree and 10 years of teaching experience to help seamlessly guide her clients through the intricacies of real estate. But Elisa doesn't just have experience buying and selling homes; she's also helped build 23 single-family homes for Habitat for Humanity and has a keen eye for details and potential pitfalls.
Outside of her love for helping clients navigate the adventures of homeownership, she's most often found exploring the geography and geology of the PNW or helping neighbors with home and garden projects.
Brazilian born to an Argentine mother, Elisa speaks English, Spanish, and some Portuguese, and has a passion for social justice, the environment, literature, and creating community.
She specializes in helping clients navigate the ins and outs of preparing a home for the market, and loves her role in helping buyers find Home.
Elisa is a member of the LGBTQ+ Real Estate Alliance.
