What We Do

At Kinzer Partners, we're particularly good at finding our way through large, complex real estate problems.

Kinzer Partners - What We Do

We’re probably best known for high profile projects such as corporate headquarters for many of Seattle’s largest and most successful companies. But we bring the same level of passion and quality of thinking to every project. Especially yours.

“We spend a lot of time on understanding our clients. What really makes them tick? We talk about what’s going on in their world. And eventually, we touch real estate.”

Craig Kinzer, Kinzer Partner

What Our Clients Are Saying

“In my opinion, Kinzer is the most trusted name in Seattle real estate.”

Richard Lancaster, Founder, CobWeb

Mark Griffin - Port of Seattle

“When you work with Kinzer on an assignment, you can be assured that you’re going to get the focus of the whole team.”

Mark Griffin, Former Real Estate Manager, Port of Seattle

Scott Wyatt - nbbj

“Quite simply, Kinzer redefines professionalism in the real estate industry.”

Scott Wyatt, Partner/Chairman, NBBJ

“Most real estate people are transaction-driven. Kinzer is relationship-driven. In this environment, when you meet someone who’s interested in the relationship as much as the transaction, that’s a rarity, an anomaly. It gets your attention.”

Howard Schultz, Former CEO, Starbucks

Case Studies

Most real estate projects have a few obvious options. At Kinzer, we uncover creative solutions and negotiation leverage that other brokers often fail to see.
