Real estate agent Junior Torres is the only Latino in Washington State to achieve more than $100 million in sales volume over the past year, as tallied by the Northwest Multiple Listing Service.
Torres, a Windermere agent, views the accomplishment as an opportunity to encourage other people of color in the real estate industry.
“There are so few of us at the top level, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to pave the way for more diversity in real estate in Washington,” Torres said. “It’s not the color of our skin that matters, but our performance.”
Commitment to exceptional service is the key to his achievements, Torres said.
“I believe in acting as a true partner to each client, standing by their side every step of the way. Their success is my success.”
Torres is among the top 1% of real estate agents in Washington State and has facilitated more than $800 million in real estate sales over his career.
A native of the Dominican Republic, Torres grew up in a family of real estate professionals and developers, moving to New York City when he was 12 years old. Torres studied marketing as an undergrad and went on to earn a law degree from Syracuse University College of Law, where he focused on property and tax law.
After moving to Seattle in 2001, Torres began his career in the real estate industry and is consistently ranked as one of Windermere’s top agents. Torres is active in the community and volunteers as a member of the board of directors for Mercy Housing Northwest.
