About Les Ostermeier
Originally from Iowa, Les has called Seattle home since 1989. Studying abroad at the University of Bochum and later at Michigan State University, he holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management with a minor in Marketing. The idea to create the Referral Agency, CHOICE Advisory stemmed from a combination of his educational and work experience. Les’ knowledge of offering services of interest to consumers was broadened through his ten year career as a sales manager and general manager of hotels and conference centers.
His experience in admissions and marketing for a Kirkland-based retirement and assisted living community helped Les recognize the need to specifically define options for seniors and their families. While the Puget Sound area is rich with housing and care options, the various services and pricing plans are complex. Les felt it was in the best interest of consumers and senior housing/care providers to create company who could ask the appropriate questions to better define the available options.
