DUSTIN VAN WYCK | Principal Broker
Direct: 206-673-3424 | firstname.lastname@example.org
After graduating with a degree in economics from Willamette University, Dustin Van Wyck accepted his first job working in the financial services industry with a large lender. With that foundational knowledge, he created his own mortgage brokerage in Bellevue, WA. Dustin successfully grew his book of business, catching the eye of a larger national lending company, which led to an acquisition of his brokerage. After 9 years and 1000 mortgages under his belt, Dustin felt it was time for a career shift.
In 2011, he partnered with former real estate appraiser Ian Porter, creating VWP Real Estate. The symbiosis of the new team was evident immediately. Dustin’s financial savvy and intimate understanding of the real estate sales cycle meshed with Ian’s ability to appraise and value land. They became court-appointed listing agents, deepening relationships with many local home builders. Leveraging their partners from their previous companies, Dustin and Ian quickly became experts in sourcing land opportunities for builders and developers. Their inherent understanding of the value and the process of buying and selling real estate made the team invaluable to their clients.
Their reputation for compassion, patience, honesty, and understanding has made them the agents of choice for many environmentally-focused builders in the greater Seattle area. Builders actively seek the services of VWP for listing and selling their newly constructed homes, knowing that the VWP team brings experience, white-glove service, and the ability to think creatively when challenges arise. That, along with their vast network of active buyers and other real estate agents, positions VWP as the premier representative for new construction residences in Seattle and the Eastside, often having inside knowledge of properties coming onto the market weeks or months before listing.
Over the last decade, the VWP team has grown exponentially, establishing itself as the #1 team (out of 7000) by volume for Windermere and the #1 land acquisition team in all of King County. VWP is the industry expert in developable land, offering consulting to homeowners, real estate brokers, and developers free of charge. Dustin is an industry thought leader in land acquisitions, often advising homeowners on when to sell the family home or helping buyers find the new construction home of their dreams.
When not helping people solve their real estate challenges, Dustin has a busy family life with his wife and twin daughters. They enjoy trips to Hawaii and keeping up with the girls’ gymnastics/dance/ski/swimming schedules. Dustin also keeps active as a competitive bike racer, where he races on the road and gravel.
Dustin supports the Windermere Foundation, where a portion of every real estate transaction goes toward funding nonprofits working to end housing insecurity. He also supports the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Eastside Baby Corner, and Fred Hutch. He, alongside his partner Ian, participates in building tiny houses for the LowIncome Housing Institute (LIHI), providing safe shelter for individuals and families experiencing housing insecurity.
