Eager to expand its delivery of community-specific service to Columbia River Gorge residents, Windermere Real Estate Columbia River Gorge recently opened a new office in Goldendale, located at 103 East Main St. The new real estate hub is the organization’s eighth branch in the Columbia River Gorge.

Though the Goldendale office officially opened earlier this summer, the community is invited to attend Windermere’s Grand Opening Party and get to know their new neighbors. It’s the Windermere Grand Opening Party, featuring a tour of the space, networking opportunities, refreshments by Cascade Cliffs Winery and Dwinell Country Ales, and smoked BBQ cooked by Jim Scott of Scott Home Inspection Services. Food and refreshments are complimentary.

The event is Thursday, August 26, from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. The office is located at 103 East Main St., Goldendale.

Windermere’s expansion into Goldendale comes as local buyer and seller demand continues to trend upward. 

“All markets are hot on both sides of the river,” said Kim Salvesen-Pauly, owner and principal broker of Windermere Real Estate Columbia River Gorge. “The market has exploded, and buyers are consistently getting priced out of affordable homes in Hood River, White Salmon, Bingen, and throughout the entire Gorge. With that kind of activity, people look to the outskirts, making Goldendale a great location to buy. We’re excited to anchor ourselves here to help buyers and sellers with their real estate needs.” 

Buyers and sellers can look forward to working with a team of brokers who are rooted in Goldendale and know the area intimately. 

“Our brokers are not just experts in this community,” said Salvesen-Pauly. “This is their home—where they live, shop, and volunteer. They’re committed to putting relationships first and providing the best real estate services.” 

Windermere welcomes experienced, community-minded real estate brokers to join its Goldendale team. Prospective brokers are encouraged to stop by the grand opening to learn more about Windermere and if it could be the right place to propel their real estate careers. Goldendale brokers will have the opportunity to excel and collaborate with a team that boasts an impressive 70-plus years of combined experience selling real estate.
