Desiree Renshaw

Owner Licensed Realtor

I know that the only thing harder than buying or selling your home is doing it while balancing a career, a family, and a checkbook. Whether you’re a young family moving up or an empty-nester scaling down, I’ve dedicated the Renshaw Group to making your Spokane real estate journey as seamless and enjoyable (yes, it can be enjoyable!) as possible.

After earning my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Boise State University, I realized that what I truly loved about psychology was connecting with people, getting to the heart of what they need, and facilitating their journey to achieving it. Real estate seemed like the perfect fit and, just like that, my real estate career was born. (In reality, I did loads of research first – and then, my real estate career began.)

Raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, I left home shortly after junior high. Being independent at such an early age taught me the value of a dollar, the importance of powerful relationships, and what it’s like to be the new girl in town – a hard-earned lesson that shaped my understanding of the importance of a home base and inspired my journey toward becoming a relocation expert.

I traveled across the Pacific Northwest before settling in Spokane with my husband almost 14 years ago. Over the years, I have leveraged my experiences to build a career in real estate that is defined by an unwavering commitment to my clients, depth of insight into the local market, and a strong network of enduring industry relationships. I have since been honored as a Top Producer for the majority of my real estate career, all while raising two young kids (moms will know the significance of this!).

As a natural-born people-person with an admittedly stubborn streak, there is nothing more important to me than transforming my clients’ visions into a reality. My fierce negotiation skills, strategic approach to the market, and ability to stay on top of ever-changing marketing trends makes me an excellent problem-solver who is able to inspire clients to think outside of the box.

The journey of building the Renshaw Group has brought me joy, challenged me in the best ways possible, guided new people into my life and, ultimately, helped me achieve what I always envisioned myself doing – connecting people with their foremost needs.

At the Renshaw Group, we pride ourselves on facilitating seamless real estate experiences with consistently exceptional results. Whether you’re a first-time buyer, seller, moving up, or expanding your investment portfolio, let’s work together to spark a brand new chapter in your life.

Sasha May

Licensed Realtor

Born and raised in the pacific northwest, I found my way to Spokane first for college (go Zags!), and later relocated with my husband to take advantage of the quality of life and cost of living in this beautiful city. Prior to real estate, I lived and worked in Seattle as a social worker, connecting homeless families with permanent housing and employment.

I thrived in this work, intentionally communicating and connecting with my clients, understanding what their needs and values were and what motivated them. I loved working with people to set realistic goals and helping them unblock challenges standing in their way. While simultaneously pursuing my passion work as a social worker, my husband and I became home renovators, landlords, and short term vacation rental “super hosts” all as a side hustle. I was enjoying these aspects of the industry so much I decided to jump all-in to real estate, taking with me the fundamental social work skills I built and blending it with my love for houses and eye for design.

After a move to Spokane I hit the pause button on my career to raise two small babies and build community in a new city. The babies aren’t babies anymore and the community I built led me to friendships with Desiree and Alyssa and a career with The Renshaw Group – Having been first a client before joining the team professionally, I can tell you with confidence this group has integrity and a willingness to go the extra mile for their people. I love being a part of this city and keeping up with Spokane’s best-of: restaurants, shopping, and parks that make this city unique and I will leverage that knowledge and the experience of The Renshaw Group to your benefit.

Client Reviews

"Desiree and her team went above and beyond to find us a house that was exactly what we were looking for and made sure that the process of buying a home went as smoothly as possible. She is an excellent communicator, strategist and is very knowledgeable about the Spokane market. If you're looking to buy a home, look no further than Desiree and her team."

Shannon Drew

"Desiree and her assistant, Alyssa, have been WONDERFUL to work with. They have worked with our busy schedule every step of the way. We are not very familiar with Spokane and our only opportunity to look at homes was the week between Christmas and New Years. They worked with us during that week to show us all the listings we wanted. It was all very well thought out and organized. They then continued to work with us during our home purchase while we were still living in a different state. They helped us through every step of the way in what is normally a very stressful process. They've been our advocates and advisors as we've transitioned our lives in a new and unknown city. We highly recommend this incredible dynamic duo for your next home purchase."

Liz Quiroz

We had the absolute pleasure of working with Desiree Renshaw and Alyssa Walsh from Windermere during our home buying here in Spokane. They were both incredibly thoughtful, helpful and patient with us during a very competitive and challenging buying market. Desiree's insight into the Spokane market place and calm ability to help us understand the nuances and current market conditions, different areas to look and honest assessments about each step along the way was both refreshing and helpful and also very comforting to our stress levels during the homebuying process. I can't recommend Desiree and Alyssa Walsh from Windermere enough."

Michael Monosky

Desiree and her team did an outstanding job in guiding us through the home buying process and helping us purchase a home we love. She is knowledgeable, thoughtful and an excellent communicator. Would definitely recommend choosing her for your real estate purchase!"

Conor Senecal

"I could not recommend Desiree Renshaw and her associate Alyssa Walsh more. From initial consultation to final closing, they were amazing in helping us find the right home in our new city. Not only were attentive, responsive and knowledgeable, but more importantly made us comfortable with the home buying process. To top it off, after the close they went above and beyond to facilitate some of our needs given we weren't yet in the area. Amazing customer service from start to finish and highly recommend! We will definitely use them for our home buying and selling needs in the future."

Sam Krajczynski

"We had the pleasure of working with Desiree this past spring to list and sell our home. We have been recommending her to everyone we know ever since. It was such a good experience. The qualities that stood out to us during our experience with Desiree were her professionalism, direct communication, market savvy, deep integrity/honesty and care for you as a person. We can't imagine having a better experience. Also, she & Alyssa staged our home and made it look extra special! Her services really add such value."
