About Us

We all long for that sense of place, that belonging. We often ask, “Where’s home for you?” not because we need to pin it on a map, but because the answer tells us much about a person. Home is where we give ourselves permission to be who we are and do what we love. It’s where we cook breakfast in our pajamas, cover the walls with what we love, and bask in sunset light on the patio with loved ones.

Home is where we start and end our days, the very bookends of daily life.

We’re here to help in the transition, and make sure it’s a seamless process into your next chapter.

Our Team

Nikki White

Listing Specialist & COO | 360-921-7270 | nikki@swbrealestategroup.com

Need an advisor when the negotiation gets tough? Nikki is a fierce advocate, the savvy visionary who walks beside you each step of the way. With almost 20 years of industry experience, she’s been there, done that, knows the trends, knows the community, and knows how to help her clients secure a sound future. Her Senior Real Estate Specialist designation means she understands and is well-versed in the financial and lifestyle transitions we all need to address for long-term planning.

But not every hour is spent in the office. On the off hours, there’s a good chance you’ll find Nikki out wine tasting with her man, or exploring all the nooks and crannies of the Pacific Northwest with her family. She’s also an active member of the Clark County Mural Society, advocating for more art and personality in our community.

Christy Buchanan

Listing Specialist & CEO | 360-904-0543 | christy@swbrealestategroup.com

Christy is both cheerleader and coach when it comes to finding a home — not only will she help you figure out exactly what you need, she’ll push everything through so that you get that perfect-for-you place. And if you’re selling, she’s already imagining ways to smooth the process for you. She’s a goal setter who thrives on the success of her whole team, which makes her a perfect fit with the SWB crew. Together, they’re forever brainstorming new ways to help people in their network pave the way to more balanced lives.

Christy just built her dream home — a place where family and friends (and horses) fit perfectly and lots of memories are being made. She knows that working hard pays off in spades, but so does taking time to enjoy the view. If she’s not at home, you’ll probably find her tackling the slopes or relaxing at the beach.

Chauntel Sullivan

Listing Specialist & Director of Business Development | 360-901-3388 | chauntel@swbrealestategroup.com

Chauntel’s past experiences have taught her the importance of resilient customer service and persistent teamwork. For her, it’s always been about people. You’ll find her listening, communicating, and managing all the details because she believes transactions should feel like a simple, streamlined process for her clients. She’s been in the business since 2002, and will attest that while nothing is predictable in real estate, anything is possible when you have passion and a solid team around you.

Chauntel’s husband and two kids light her world. Family time means fun time so they travel every chance they get, especially by boat and Harley. Her care and concern for family spills over into volunteer work — she loves mentoring children and helping people find their place in the world.

Cathi Byrd

Buyer Specialist | 360-831-4436 | cathi@swbrealestategroup.com

A superstar when it’s comes to helping clients find their perfect home, Cathi wears the hero cape of positivity. Her drive to take care of her clients not only makes her a great asset in a fast- paced market, it also makes her a powerful player on the SWB team.

When she’s not scouring listings and showing homes, Cathi is living up to her “world’s best mom” mug. With one almost married, one in the Coast Guard and another settling in up in Seattle, she’s loving supporting her grown up kids. Especially since it leaves enough time for her to enjoy fishing with her husband, and romping with her weiner dogs.

Carrie Calcagno

Transaction Coordinator | 360-935-6867
carrie@swbrealestategroup.com

The hub of all things SWB, Carrie is the organizer, the file grabber, the transaction coordinator, and the detail checker for the team. Each new listing is her chance to market and socialize the uniqueness of the property, so she’s continually inventing fresh ways to get the listing news out to their ever-growing network of movers and shakers. She sorts stuff out best when she’s out running, decompressing on the trail as nature rushes by. She and her family spend most of their free time filling the house with all their friends. Favorite thought? The secret to having it all is knowing that you already do.
