Galya Kirstine began her real estate career in 2000 and quickly established herself as a leader in the Eastside real estate market. She joined the NWG team in 2014 and continued her focus in Eastside sales, leadership, and Director of Eastside Luxury. In 2018 they were selected as the launch partner for Compass’ expansion into the Seattle market. In 2022, Galya helped establish Real Residential as Partner and Founder.
Galya’s move into a co-founding role with Real Residential is the culmination of a successful career in which she has consistently ranked in the top 1% of Washington brokers. A native of the Eastside region, Galya is intimately familiar with all aspects of the local markets; she specializes in resale, the luxury home market, and new construction homes in the greater Seattle area. She also has an impressive background in builder projects and has built homes from the ground up herself, too—she’s someone who knows every square inch of a quality home, right down to the studs. This deep knowledge base helps her better serve her clients, guiding them through key decision-making.
Additionally, Galya’s strong commitment to her clients shines through in Real Residential’s Real Duty of Care, a promise it makes to every client—including a focus on honesty, transparency, and exceptional service throughout the home buying and selling process. When you choose Galya as your agent, you get more than just the vast technical knowledge she brings to the table. You get her enthusiasm for real estate and her passion for client satisfaction.
Galya and her family are strongly connected to the Eastside through her children’s schools, sports teams, and everything that makes this community their home. She also enjoys spending time on the tennis court whenever she can. And during school breaks, you’ll often find her and her family recharging their batteries in a sunny destination.
