At Paramount Property Management we have a proven track record, offering more to our owners and our tenants. Listed below are a few of the ways in which we redefine property management.
James Bergstrom » Owner
Music was James's first passion. Raised in the Seattle suburbs, James determinedly pursued his ambitions that ultimately resulted in a long term music career. After a record deal with a major label and a national tour, James settled down in Kitsap County to raise a family of his own.
Real estate quickly became a new passion, and almost overnight, James became one of Kitsap County’s prominent real estate agents with top sales since 2001. His versatile knowledge and unique team is built to manage projects of all shapes and sizes, while representing an eclectic clientele. In 2011, James co-founded The Paramount Property Management Group. He wanted to redefine property management with excellence. "We saw a need and sought to establish a company that provides property management, home maintenance, and construction as an all-in-one service." That resulted in the birth of Paramount Property Maintenance & Paramount Construction & Design in 2012. All three companies are independently strong and strive to put customer service at its forefront because at Paramount relationships are valued over sales.
Heather Larrin » CEO/CFO
Having worked in the Real Estate world since she was a young adult, Heather has assisted some of Western Washington's top realtors. Since then, she has helped grow Paramount organically from 11 listings, to nearly 300 in just 5 years, making Paramount the fastest growing Windermere Property Management subsidiary in history. From the time the company originated, she has helped to develop and maintain Paramount’s unprecedented standards. Heather is a member of the National Association of Residential Property Managers (NARPM) and in 2016, was made Chapter Vice President. Outside of work, she continues to share close ties with the friends and family she has grown up with.
Rachel Nilsen » Executive Assisant
Rachel has been with Paramount going on 3 years and while she does not have prior experience with property management, she has learned so much and has loved the connections she's made with our clients and coworkers. Rachel is originally from Bothell, WA and graduated from Washington State University in 2016 with a degree in Psychology (Go Cougs!). In her free time, she enjoys photography, traveling and spending time with family and friends!
Makayla Bliss-Miller » Realtor
Born and raised in Port Orchard, it is definitely my home. I love the outdoors and spend any minute I can hiking the Olympic mountains, or Paddle Boarding in the Sound. I love music and have been a musician on various worship teams since I was 12. I never thought I would get into real estate, but as soon as I started, I immediately fell in love with the opportunity to be a part of families taking this next major step in their lives. I love facing new challenges, learning new things, and this has been a fun adventure I’ve faced with enthusiasm! I hope to be able to continue meeting new families, exploring new places, and serving the Kitsap County community for the rest of my life!
Edward Young » Maintenance Coordinator
Raised in Washington, Ed has been fortunate enough to spend time traveling the other 47 lower continental states. He says the beauty of the Pacific Northwest and the desire to live closer to his family led him back to the area last year. Ed is a former tradesman who specialized in painting residential, commercial, and industrial facilities. Having owned and operated a painting company for 5 years, Ed is able to transfer his experience with his craft onto the Maintenance Management side and now specializes in helping to remedy any and all maintenance concerns. On weekends, Ed enjoys traveling and exploring the natural beauties of Washington.
Chris Jamieson » Realtor, Property Manager
Raised in the Northern Virginia Area, Chris comes to Paramount with an extensive sales background and an open mind. Chris moved to the area 5 years ago with his family of 2 and one more on the way due Dec 2019! He has been with Paramount since the end of 2017. Just alone in the year of 2019, we have acquired close to 50 new properties and have no intention of slowing down. Chris understands people and is great at building long lasting relationships. When Chris is not working at Paramount he is involved in coaching several sports teams in the Bremerton area as well as taking part in the community watch. His philosophy is simple “treat others how you would want to be treated” and it shows!
Miranda Larrin » Accountant
Miranda has been with Paramount since she was about 15 years old. She started out by helping file after school, and even during the summers when she was home on break from Washington State University (Go Cougs!). This gave her the opportunity to learn how property management works, real estate practices, and mostly a general knowledge of how the company began and grew. After college, Miranda was hired full time as Paramount's accountant. She has always been known as a "math whiz" and genuinely enjoys playing with numbers and solving problems. In her free time, Miranda enjoys photographing natural landscapes around the PNW and hiking.
