Gordon and Jay Young co-founded Real Property Associates in 1991 in Edmonds, Washington, moving to Seattle in 1996 where their office is today in North Seattle's Roosevelt district. Throughout these decades, the vision has remained consistent: To provide excellent brokerage and property management services to clients throughout the Puget Sound region.
Gordon acts as the designated broker for the RPA, overseeing over 70 brokers in their sales activities while continuing to personally represent buyers and sellers. He is also involved with RPA’s commercial real estate division where he provides management and consultation for commercial property owners.
Gordon grew up in Lake Forest Park and graduated from North Seattle’s Shorecrest High School in 1984. After graduating from Stanford University in 1988 with a degree in economics he returned to Seattle and started working in real estate as a sales agent with two regional franchises, MacPherson's and Windermere, before starting RPA.
Gordon lives with his family in Lake Forest Park, just north Seattle, and is an original board member for the online real estate website Zillow.com, and Pure Watercraft, and is a trustee for Earl Palmer Ministries. He has previously served as a trustee for several non-profits, including Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission (www.ugm.org).
