What is your day job?
I am a Residential Real Estate Broker with Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty and am blessed with representing many of the area’s most luxurious homes and sophisticated clientele.
Having spent over fifteen years in real estate, I have earned the designation as Senior Global Real Estate Advisor and offer leadership, expertise, and savvy insights to assist in guiding my residential brokerage firm, Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty. My clients consistently rely on my astute knowledge, keen perspectives, honest guidance and strong negotiation skills when making decisions on their future real estate investments. I specialize in luxury residential real estate throughout the area and set the gold standard for excellence, both locally and globally.
Deeply connected to my local community, I am dedicated to my work as a Board Member for the JDRF Seattle Guild and am actively involved with Bellevue LifeSpring. My commitment to real estate has carried forward to the next generation, as my two sons are working in commercial real estate and my daughter, Paige Norris, is currently my business partner.
What is your previous dance experience?
Whenever an opportunity to dance to presents, I’m there! Early memory: Dancing for my grandparents to American Grand Stand. Favorite memory: Dancing with my babies on my hip! Always!
Why are you dancing for Plymouth Housing Group?
Giving back to our community is a core value I was raised with. I have tried to honor this value throughout my life and to hold it up to my children as an important attribute. This is who we are and we are all interconnected! And Plymouth Housing Group’s mission is one that I wholeheartedly support, and I’m thrilled to be part of the 2017 Seattle Dances.
Where are you going to put your Mirror Ball Trophy when you win?
Proudly displayed anywhere and everywhere my friends and colleagues might admire my Mirror Ball Trophy! I’m fond of shiny baubles, so it’s possible I will mount it in a special setting and wear it proudly! Who knows… Instagram #mirrorballtrophy may have a life of its own! May my Mirror Ball inspire all others who like to Shine and Shake-it a bit to participate in a future Plymouth Housing Dance event!
Meet Professional Dancer Travis Boothe
A lifetime of hard play, quiet meditation, martial arts, and active observation have shaped Travis into an expert on physical movement, structure, and health. He creates healthy lifestyles through personal training and yoga at his space, GymSmithy, and his understanding of physiology, structure, and strength make his explanations of posture and fundamental movement in tango clear and accessible. He believes movement in the form of exercise is a cornerstone of a healthy and happy life, that tango can be accessible to everyone, and he dances and teaches with joy.
