Deer Park Chamber of Commerce
Featured Business of the Month
Real Estate Marketplace N.W.
Real Estate Marketplace N.W. was started over 18 years ago by father and son duo, Jim Palmer Sr. and Jim Palmer Jr., as equal partners with their wives, Nila and Sue. Starting with just a few dollars in their pocket, they had to rely on their honesty and hard work ethic to bring success. Now the company employs over 30 associated brokers who work from Spokane to the Canadian border and who sell more real estate in the Deer Park area than any other real estate company.
They received the accolade of “Washington Family Business of the Year” from the Family Enterprise Institute at Pacific Lutheran University in 2007. It truly is a family affair with Nila and Sue handling front desk and secretarial duties, Jim Sr. as recruiter and marketing director, and Brandon (son/grandson) as a broker and assistant to Jim Jr. Jim’s youngest son, Mikal, has plans to obtain a real estate license when he turns 18 later this year. This succession factor is important to the two Jims, who want to see their hard work perpetuate into the next generation. When asked how they were surviving the recent market crash, both Jims’ comments were similar, “We are here to stay!”
In this non-franchised, independent company, the goal is to provide legendary service at the highest level of professionalism to earn the trust of their customers for lifetime relationships. That formula has earned them the trust of the community and propelled their sales volume to a majority market share in Northeast Washington. They belong to the Spokane Association of Realtors as well as the Northeast Washington Association of Realtors, which gives their clients the advantage of two multiple listing services.
