  • There is NO ONE quite like Claire and I could not more highly recommend her. Fron start to finish, Claire was there for me. As a first time home buyer, there were many things I was unfamiliar with and Claire gudied me through the process with patience and expertise. Every step of the way was fantastic. I enjoyed the properties Claire selected as possibilities. She really stays on top of newly available locations and this makes a huge difference in grabbing the best of the best before anyone else can. Claire's passion for her trade is evident. Even as we would drive to/from potential locations, she always pointed out landmarks or houses with the most interesting stories/insights. I feel like I know Seattle that much more because of her. Her clients are her utmost priority and this is clear with her accessibility, follow-through, and responsiveness. The process of home buying can be grueling, as was my case because the property was a short sale. However, Claire's exceptional capability allowed me to remain fully confident and calm. Whenever there was a new component to the sale, she would walk me through the situation while laying out options and helping me make the best choice to continue. On a personal note, she is very warm, supportive, and fun. Though she is a consummate professional, her personality makes her a joy to work with. Thanks to Claire, I am now living in my dream condo. Though I plan on being here for many years to come, I know the next time I need to sell and/or buy, I will be calling Claire!

  • Claire worked patiently with us for over a year to find the house that met our needs. She quickly understood our interests and showed us an appropriate cross section of properties. She was tireless in shepherding us through the purchase process, and extremely professional in all of its aspects. We not only recommend her highly, but as a design professioina, believe her to be one of the best agents we have ever worked with.
    -Phinney Ridge Buyer
  • Claire was recommended to us by some friends who bought a house about two years ago. We couldn't have been happier with Claire's service. She quickly ascertained what qualities we were looking for in a house and helped us find many great homes to tour. She was able to successfully guide us through to closing during a tough seller's market with heavy competition on almost every home we looked at. We emailed and spoke daily, and [we] felt well taken care of throughout every step of the process. Claire was great to work with, and perhaps most importantly we got along well and had fun looking at homes together! We would highly recommend her services.
