Carissa Saffel


Get to Know Me

Carissa began her real estate career in 2000 and has over 20 years of experience in both commercial and residential real estate. In 2010, she changed her focus to residential properties in the greater Seattle area and the Eastside. As a Seattle native, she has deep roots in this area along with a keen understanding of the local neighborhoods, schools, market conditions, zoning regulations, and local economies.
Carissa had her clients in mind when she joined Compass. By aligning herself with Compass’s innovative, social media, client-first philosophy, and industry groundbreakers, she can truly find the best solutions for both buyers and sellers. Clients value that she guides them through the complexities of buying or selling a home, eliminating the stress and hassles that often accompany the biggest financial transaction consumers will make in their life. Carissa strives to always serve her clients with dedication and commitment to better serve them in the process of selling their homes.
She enjoys spending time with her husband and their two boys, Charlie and Jack, as well as being involved with the Lakemont community in Bellevue, where they reside. Carissa looks forward to helping you find your Compass home.
