Kari Dryke – Broker
“Amazing Realtor!! She did a wonderful job!!! Love my home!!”
~ Miranda P.
“My husband and I were probably the worst of the worst real estate shoppers! Kari patiently took us from house to house without giving up hope in us. When we finally found our house, without delay Kari jumped on it. Kari is professional and caring. Thanks, Kari for all you did. She still notifies us when something new comes on the market.”
~ Jenalee A.
“Could not be happier with our realtor! she sold us our dream house and made it such an enjoyable experience thank you Kari”
~ Courtney K.
“Kari Dryke was diligent and very responsive in helping us buy our first home. She was thorough in ferreting out possibilities that met what we were looking for, and made several trips to Clallam Bay after hours to show them to us, thereby accommodating my work schedule. Overall, we were very pleased and would heartily recommend her to represent anyone in the area.”
~ Clifton H
“Well if we could have had a little bit bigger kitchen I would love our house even more but she didn’t design and build it… She just got it for us… So I don’t think that I can blame that on her… I can tell you that she had to work her bootie off to get us a/our house… I recommend her to anyone I know looking to buy or sell real estate…”
Kari has a deep love for this area she calls home. She was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and has a particular affinity for the Olympic Peninsula and all of its diverse activities, mountainous landscapes and stunning beauty. Her love and passion of the outdoors takes her far and wide, over many hills and trails.
With a bachelor’s degree in Human Services, Kari finds the importance of building trusting relationships. “Building relationships with all of my clients is vital to me because it’s more than just a business relationship…it becomes a friendship. I treat them like family or a close friend, the same way I would want to be treated during a transaction.”
With her attention to detail, Kari will go above and beyond to help her clients, whether selling or buying. What she enjoys most in real estate is the feeling she gets knowing she has helped her clients achieve their dreams. “One of my favorite things is when I take families into homes and the kids get so excited about picking out their bedrooms – to find that home is a dream for clients, kids included, and I get to be a part of that. I just LOVE that feeling.”
True to the heart of the Olympic Peninsula, Kari spends the majority of her time outdoors, hiking and exploring the many hidden backroads and trails, or river fishing. Her happiest moments are watching her son play sports, discovering the hidden treasures in the Pacific Northwest or taking in breathtaking views from different mountain trails. Some of Kari’s recommended hikes include Lake Angeles, Klahhane Ridge, Hurricane Hill, Sol Duc Falls and the Hoh Rainforest, all of which offer stunning scenery.
Kari spent a decade in Seattle as an office manager before returning home and joining JACE Real Estate more than 8 years ago in office administration then later in sales. She had the distinct pleasure of working directly with Jace Schmitz, namesake to JACE Real Estate where she was given a top notch real estate education for many years. When asked “Why JACE?” Kari answers “JACE is a local business and I support small local businesses. In addition, we are a family here – everyone gets along, we are all good friends and always willing to help each other out. You simply can’t beat that.”
With Kari’s love for the area and many years of experience, she is a strong candidate to help you accomplish your real estate dreams. She takes great pride in how thorough she is, how hard she works and how well she takes care of her client relationships.
