"Attentive, Knowledgeable, and Enthusiastic Agents"
“We could not have asked for more attentive, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic agents during the process of buying and selling our homes. Laura and Julie are an incredible team: we found them both to be deeply attentive and supportive throughout our process, while at the same time giving direct and candid answers to all our questions. We never doubted that Laura and Julie had our best interests in mind, and we would most definitely work with them again in the future.” --Jake & Cristin VanderPlas
"They were there Every Step of the Way"
“Laura and Julie were awesome!! With their help, my parents and I sold a townhouse and a house and purchased a condo. They were there every step of the way and explained everything in detail. With their help and guidance my townhouse sold in one day! The whole process for all three transactions were virtually stress free. I highly recommend them to everyone wanting to buy or sell a home!!” --Cindy Roberts
"Made Sure that our Offers were First-Rate"
“We worked with Laura and Julie to buy a home after relocating to the Seattle area. As first-time home-buyers, we had a lot of questions and Laura was always responsive and provided helpful answers! Not only did we get an overview of the process, but Laura's long experience and knowledge of the Seattle area was invaluable as we looked at properties. Laura and Julie helped us to zero in on what we were looking for, and when the time came to make offers made sure that our offers were first-rate. We recently closed on our purchase and could not be happier. Buying a home is supposed to be stressful, but with Laura and Julie we always felt like things were under control. We will recommend her to all of our friends for years to come!” --Ryan & Steve Hess
"Receptive to Our Requirements"
“You have been very receptive to our requirements and championed our interests very well. You were very professional and always consulted us in all situations that may have adverse effect to our interest. When things were taking longer than anticipated, you never gave up on us when others would have easily done so. Through you diligent efforts we were able to realize our objective. You have been a God-send to us.” --Jaime & Diana Macandog (Sellers)
“You conscientiously followed up on all leads, gave me moral support when the inevitable glitches occurred, and finally, neatly tied up all loose ends. You never once dropped the ball. Over and above all that, you negotiated brilliantly.” --Nadine Hazelton (Seller)
"Professional and Personable"
“Laura was my agent through the process of selling my home. She was expedient and had vast expertise in the real estate industry. She was professional and personable. I would recommend her to any friend looking to sell their home.” --J. Bell (Seller)
"Optimistic and Diligent"
“Despite these difficulties [with the property], you and your team were optimistic and diligent in the way you went about marketing and preparing the house. I was impressed…I will be recommending you to all my friends.” --Philip Yun (Seller)
"Treated Us with Professionalism and Kindness"
“Laura was very helpful in all aspects of our house sale, from recommendations of items to repair/update, contractors to do the work, good pricing strategy, and great process to finish the sale. Laura is very friendly and treated us with professionalism and kindness. I would recommend Laura highly to anyone who needs help selling their home.” --Marcie Kelligrew (Seller)
"A Gentle, Patient Guide"
“We knew we were in capable hands from the moment you first sat down with us to thoroughly explain the real estate market and the house hunting process. You continued to be a gentle, patient guide as we looked through house after house…you encouraged us to ‘look past the staging’ and ask ourselves important questions…For how nurturing you are with your clients, it’s surprising to see what a bull you can be in the ring!” --Yemaya & Lucas St. Clair (First-Time Buyers)
"Far Less Stressful or Confusing"
“Your help and expertise have made the home-buying process far less stressful or confusing than it usually is for first-time buyers…We appreciate your strong relationships with the excellent mortgage lender and escrow company that helped make the closing process smooth and efficient.” --Cory Shepherd & Jarrett Mylander (First-Time Buyers)
"Almost Prophetic Anticipation"
“We were amazed at your ability to negotiate acceptance of our initial offer, as well as your almost prophetic anticipation of each response from the seller.” --Nathan & Joy Hawkins (First-Time Buyers)
"[Addressed] My Concerns"
“I was thankful for the way that you worked with me to address my concerns and the time you took to ensure that I was making a wise decision. In the end, when I decided not to buy anything, I appreciated that you agave me your educated opinion but didn’t pressure me to make any decision other than what I felt would be best for me. It is clear that you are not in this business for the commission, but rather because you genuinely enjoy helping people to achieve their life goals.” --Cindy Impola (First-Time Buyer)
“As you know, I practice Real Estate Law and I am very aware of the problems which can occur when either buying or selling a house. Your real estate knowledge, industry contacts, and attention to detail proved invaluable!” --LuAnne Perry (Buyer)
"Gets in the Trenches and Keeps You Motivated"
“Laura is absolutely amazing! We were so glad to be introduced to her after a bad experience with another broker. Laura works incredibly hard to earn your trust and learn what you love about houses, neighborhoods, thinking/decision making process, etc. Once she knows your tastes she will preview houses for you and let you know her opinion, based on what she knows about your wants/needs and what she knows about the market, neighborhood, and house. She is smart and can help you see the potential or lack thereof in a property. She is patient and can completely walk you through explaining all the paperwork (we were 1st time buyers). She gets in the trenches with you and will help keep you motivated when you aren't seeing the house of your dreams. We had some pretty specific wants and Laura worked with us for 10 months to find our house. She is an ethical, smart, passionate professional who we are now privileged to call a friend. We 100% recommend her to anyone who is jumping into the home buying arena.” --Jamie and Ben Hewitt (Buyers)
"Superior Negotiating Skills"
“We ended up finding a house that was a ‘for sale by owner’ property and we could not have secured the sale without your superior negotiating skills. You were able to persuade the sellers that we were the buyers they wanted to sell to, and you willingly gave up your Saturday evening to do so.” --Michael Mariani & Chritina Vaamonde (Buyers)
"Responsiveness, Professionalism, Thoroughness and Creativity"
“Julie’s responsiveness, professionalism, thoroughness and creativity have been highly reassuring during my current long distance real estate transactions…I won’t hesitate to refer my friends and business associates, to Julie.” --Roland Jadryev (Buyer)
"Never Compromised Our Interests"
“When we first agreed to meet you, it was with a little trepidation: you represented the sellers of the house we wanted to buy and we had no agent representing us! But, when we met in person, we realized that you were someone we could trust, a true professional who could ethically represent both us and the sellers. And we were right! We’re sure that at times it couldn’t have been easy for you acting as a duel agent, but we felt that you never compromised our interests. You were always available with answers to our questions, and were able to quickly communicate any concerns between us and the sellers. We are very appreciative of all you efforts!” --Claudia Pittenger & Ginny Clein (Buyers)
