Nestled in the valley where the White River flows into the Puyallup River, the City of Sumner is combining the best of the past with a visionary future. Settled in 1853 by pioneers, the City was built on agriculture, especially daffodils, rhubarb, hops, berries, vegetables and turf grasses. In fact, Sumner is still known as the Rhubarb Pie Capital of the World! Sumner has retained its small-town charm even though it is now a city of 9400 residents. The historic Downtown Sumner is home to a variety of shops and businesses and hosts many community events including the Daffodil Parade, Wine Walks and Music Off Main. The East Main Street business district is a newer, vibrant business community with restaurants, shopping, services and the largest YMCA in the State of Washington, opened in 2015. And, the industrial north of Sumner is home to many warehouses and industries that enjoy easy freeway access and other amenities suited to manufacturing. With two major highways intersecting in Sumner and a commuter station for the Sounder train, it’s easy to get to Sumner. With stellar schools, beautiful parks and small town charm, it’s hard to leave.
OUR DNA: Real estate coffeehouse think tank; industrial meets mid-century modern, and a huge rustic whiteboard scribbled with group coaching and mastermind sessions. The conference room table covered with cups of coffee, laptops and notepads; while our agents are fully engaged and will depart feeling energized, up-lifted and ready to conquer what lies ahead. We’re not your customary Real Estate brokerage. That has never been the idea. The word “Sozo” is a Greek verb; and action word. The root of the word means to restore, to keep a safe and sound mind; to take action.
