Rhonda discovered her love of real estate at the early age of thirteen! Before there was child labor laws, she interned at a local office answering phones on weekends then working full time in the summer months with expanded responsibilities. She capitalized on these early years of training by leaning both the basics and the finer points of the real estate business.
With family roots in western Washington spanning over 70 years, Rhonda grew up with horses and displaying her spunk early on in the highly competitive junior rodeo circuit, competing and winning in barrel racing, goat tying, and calf roping. This young miss also won the title of Rodeo Queen traveling throughout the state attending events and parades.
After graduating from South Kitsap High School at seventeen, still to young to get her real estate license or to buy her first home, Rhonda secured a job in the banking and finance industry--getting management to waive their age restriction--and was again highly successful. During the next five years, she accumulated business experience in the real estate related field of residential and commercial construction.
In 1990, after working from home while her children were young, she returned to her first love, Real Estate. She now owns three RE/MAX offices, in Port Orchard, Belfair, and Gig Harbor--with a fourth due to open in Tacoma in 2015. Rhonda is a full time broker at her Port Orchard office and is the leader of the Edwards Team
She and her husband Steve, who until recently was the long time business owner of Heritage Fireplace Shops in Gorst and Poulsbo, have three children and seven grandchildren. Their Kitsap County property is home to horses, cows, and puppies and a happy gathering place for their extended family.
