The Sweet Living Team Approach

Kristen Meyer - Managing Broker + Listing Specialist

Kristen founded Sweet Living in 2013 with the mission to revolutionize the way residential real estate is done in Seattle.  She moved to Seattle from New Jersey (via Chapel Hill, NC) in 1995 to work for legendary independent record label Sub Pop.  Never really intending to live in the Pacific Northwest, Kristen found that she had landed in one of the most creative, naturally beautiful, friendly, interesting, dynamic and livable cities in the country.  

After 8 years working at Sub Pop and being a part of the robust music community, she hung up her flannel in pursuit of a real estate license.  Kristen began her career in 2004 with Keller Williams Realty in West Seattle - only the second Keller Williams office in the Seattle area at that time.  

Kristen's clients became her raving fans after they experienced her expert advocacy, energetic commitment to helping them find the homes of their dreams, and diligence in creatively marketing unique properties to get them sold.  

In early 2013 Sweet Living was born. Sweet Living is a boutique team of real estate agents with expertise in the Seattle Metropolitan Real Estate market. Dedicated to client service, Sweet Living has consistently been one of the highest producing teams in their Keller Williams office which has expanded to include market centers in Downtown Seattle, Tacoma, Bothell, Everett and Kirkland.
 
Kristen loves to work with her talented team and clients. Her passion for helping first time homebuyers begin their journey toward homeownership keeps her energized and excited no matter what the market is doing. The constantly evolving technology that is revolutionizing the way consumers and real estate professionals interact provides unique opportunities for Sweet Living clients to get where they want to go.

When she is not peering quizzically into sewer lines or meeting with new clients, Kristen loves to hang out with her husband, young daughter and dog, Iggy. She remains an avid music fan and loves discovering new artists on KEXP. She feels blessed to be living in Seattle surrounded by great friends.

Jacquelyn Phillips - Buyer Agent

As Sweet Living's in-house property bird-dog, Jacquelyn has successfully gotten our Sweet buyers the homes of their dreams through tireless searching, advocating, and being victorious in multiple bidding wars.

A native of Oklahoma, Jacquelyn now calls West Seattle her home with her husband and two young sons. When she is not fiercely negotiating in her client's best interest, she enjoys running and fitness. She will work tirelessly for you, unless you call her Jackie. Do NOT call her Jackie.

Erika Long - Operations + Marketing Manager

Erika is Sweet Living’s Operations and Marketing Manager, a title she owns. When Erika isn’t ushering clients through the contract to close process, rallying the Sweet Living team at a client appreciation party, or marketing Sweet Living’s beautiful logo to the world, she steadies the ship. Erika helps make the wheels turn behind the scenes, and is the keel of S.S. Sweet Living. Erika is obsessed with customer care, her eye for detail is second to none, and she starts to break into the good sweats when people land the home of their dreams.

Erika was born in Seattle and, save for a short college stint in Bellingham, has lived here forever, currently with her husband, baby, and cat in West Seattle (a house they purchased years ago, with Kristen at the helm). She has worked in the music business (for Sub Pop’s sister record label, Barsuk), and the almighty Amazon, and is thankful to have experienced both small and big business, happily now settled in this sweet spot. When not holding down the Sweet Living fort, she can be found on the water in her fold-up kayak, pulling weeds in her garden, or belting Third Eye Blind on her way to the San Juan Islands.

Nicole Walters - Showing Agent

Throughout Nicole Walters' eclectic professional background the single common thread in all of her endeavors has been her genuine affection for people. Whether as a copywriter, proposal coordinator, author, or choir director, Nicole loves to creatively leverage her talents in service to the people and projects around her. A Sweet Living client before becoming a Sweet Living Showing Agent, Nicole brings her enthusiasm for customer care and satisfaction to compliment this sweet team. 

A native Californian, Nicole has fallen in love with Seattle, its moody skies, and endless supply of good coffee and steamed milk. When she's not bouncing around Seattle introducing clients to the houses of their dreams, you can find Nicole on a yoga mat, enjoying dinner out with her foodie husband, or in her kitchen with flour on her nose baking her incredible sweet potato pies ... if you're really, really lucky.
