Roberta Kent

Real Estate Professional in Friday Harbor, Washington
United States

Roberta Kent represents Buyers and Sellers of real estate in Washington State's San Juan Islands. She brings to the job experience and skills perfected in her prior career lives. She worked as a literary agent representing writers, directors and producers in New York and Hollywood for twenty years. She subsequently moved to Ashland, Oregon, where she used her negotiating skills and knowledge of contracts in law firms with practice areas as varied as personal injury, insurance defense, domestic relations and criminal law. She has also been a theater reviewer, a wine columnist and a freelance reporter. She obtained her Washington State Broker's License in May, 2016. Roberta is keenly aware of the personal as well as the contractual nature of a real estate transaction. Whether she represents the Seller or the Buyer in a transaction, her goal is to provide guidance and expertise in matching the perfect property to the ideal buyer and closing the sale quickly. Roberta's husband, Russell Sadler, is a former Oregon political commentator and columnist. After retiring to Friday Harbor in 2003, he lived on a 30-foot boat in the marina and became a naturalist guide on Friday Harbor whale watch boats. Roberta spent many years visiting him, learning the San Juan Islands' geography and unique "sense of place." When they married in 2011, Russell moved to Ashland but it remained their dream to return to the islands. They bought a house on Point Caution outside of Friday Harbor in September, 2015. Roberta enjoys traveling around the Pacific Northwest as well as to Europe. She is an accomplished chef--she worked with a caterer in Los Angeles as a hobby when she lived there--and she and Russell enjoy entertaining. She is an avid reader, especially of history, biography and politics. She loves all animals, especially dogs, and dotes on her small Havanese terrier, Paco. While she lived in Oregon, she owned a horse and participated in local dressage shows. Roberta welcomes your inquiries into listing or purchasing property in the San Juan Islands and looks forward to sharing her love for this very special corner of the world. You can reach Roberta at, at 360-378-2151 or at 800-258-3112 or on her cell phone 541-941-2673.
