About Us

Working as a team means that we can be here for you when you need us. Our combined availability and negotiating skills enable us to accomplish more than any single agent can.


The Awesome Nossum Group consists of our founder (who oversees everything), our AWESOME agents, and a business operations manager & marketing specialist.

It was founded by Christian Nossum, a born and raised Seattle native and father of three.

Christian’s strong focus on education extends to how he develops and manages his talented team. He takes pride in mentoring each member of the team to be the best they can be. His clients also benefit from his team approach since the combined expertise and availability of the team far outweighs that of any single agent.

Joanna Beecher, Real Estate Broker

I have lived in Seattle for over a decade and have been able to see this city and surrounding areas grow into what it is today. I love to be able to help clients find joy and ease throughout their home buying process, while at the same time helping clients learn and find homes that work best for them. When I’m not helping clients find their homes, I love walking with my dogs in Discovery Park or around my neighborhood, or snuggling up with one of my 2 rescued cats. 3 things I love to talk about are animal rescue, how to detoxify your home life (from home products to skincare), and how to eat and live clean but with balance. I also love to laugh and dance! Like dance a lot! I look forward to meeting and working with you!
