A lifelong South Sound resident, Anne was raised in Gig Harbor, graduated from the University of Puget Sound (go Loggers!) and continues to make the Tacoma area her home. Prior to entering real estate in 2008, Anne worked in new construction alongside her parents, Pete & Kathy Crase. Their emphasis on honesty, quality and customer service has kept them building homes for nearly 40 years, and was the foundation upon which Anne built her own business.
Most recently, Anne and her husband Dave opened Windermere Abode, a boutique real estate office in North Tacoma’s Old Town neighborhood. After spending 15 years in education (most recently as an assistant principal), Dave runs the day-to-day operations of the office.
When she’s not working, Anne enjoys snapping photos of Tacoma’s most beautiful homes & scenery (find her HERE on Instagram) being a mother to two very active young boys and dreaming up ideas for her midcentury home. Aside from the amazing people who live here, Anne’s favorite thing about Tacoma is the independent coffee scene. (Her favorite is Valhalla, but there are other locally roasted options.)
WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID ABOUT WORKING WITH ANNE:
“My wife and I worked with Anne last year to buy our dream home and to sell the home that we lived in for 16 years. I’m very critical on evaluating anybody that I do business with. Anne Jones is the type of professional that you cross paths with very few times in your life. I can’t speak highly enough of the outstanding job that Anne did for us. Her professionalism, integrity, knowledge, dependability, hard work and care for her clients are second to none. She is the very best in the industry!”

“When I needed someone to give me another opinion about our Father’s estate Anne made plans to come and meet with me and my siblings within a few days. Within a week she had her photographer making a video and taking pictures. Anne was very helpful with our Father’s estate. Anne took time to look at the home and property to see the real value in it. She listened to my siblings about the history of the home and very attentive to the workmanship and details that went into the home. Anne treated our Father’s home as if we were her only clients. She answered questions honestly and gave us her honest opinion when we needed it. I would recommend Anne to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home.”
— Mark McKibben
“Anne was amazing! She knew exactly how to help get our house ready to hit the market. Her thoughts on what needed to be done before listing while making sure we didn’t spend too much time and money with unnecessary updates was extremely helpful! Her expertise paid off because we received a full price offer in 2 days. She was always professional, yet made us feel at ease. We never felt silly about our lack of knowledge when discussing things with her (this was our first selling experience). I very highly recommend Anne to anyone looking to sell a home!”
— Tiffany Hensley
“Anne sold a house for us in 2009 and another in 2012. Ann knows the area well and is continually researching and reviewing the changing market. She has a network of service contractors if you want a referral when work needs to be done on your house. Over the years, I’ve sold 3 other houses. Anne is the most tuned-in, hard working, conscientious, honest realtor I have ever worked with.”
— Tim & Cassie Standke
“Anne was the second agent I hired to sell my home. She provided me with exactly the kind of professional and hands on approach I so desperately needed. The house I was selling was unique in so many ways. In a depressed real estate market, she held my hand thru numerous offers, unexpected inspection glitches and the eventual quick turn over to the new buyer. Throughout the process, she had my back. Then we finalized the purchase of my new home after going through dozens of potential properties. I should add that she also sold two properties for a friend/relative, one of which was a pretty hard sell in the condo market. Would Anne Jones be the “go to” person for my next real estate transaction? You bet!”
— Janice Seelig
“Anne is fantastic. We’ve worked with Anne to both find us the perfect home and to sell that home when we were ready to move out of town. She is knowledgeable, responsive, and friendly. She has a very artistic eye and does an amazing job marketing a property. She also takes the time to get to know you and find the house you’ve dreamed of. Couldn’t be happier!”
