I made the decision to jump into real estate in 2002. My wife & I purchased our first home in Broadview (North Seattle) and had a very below average experience with just about no follow up after the transaction. I thought, "Wouldn't it be cool to be the kind of agent who focused on being as informative & knowledgeable as possible while making the process enjoyable too?" Shortly after that, I acquired my license and began selling homes. For 10 years prior, I had been working as a social worker helping homeless young adults obtain housing, so I saw potential for tons of crossover between the two professions. That experience helped me understand that listening to what someone wants for themselves, rather than what I want for them, could be an asset.
My awesome family consists of my wife, Rebecca and two sons- Henry (born in 2003) & Elliott (born 18 months later-I know, they're close in ages...but we're officially done!). If you're lucky enough to ever meet me via real estate purposes, I may be accompanied by one of my "assistants" on random occasions and you can bet that you'll like me even more after that! We also have two dogs-Jetson the black lab & Ringo the fierce chihuahua. We currently live in Ballard's Whittier Heights neighborhood where we have been since 2005 and are loving every minute! The Adamsons love to travel & Miss Rebecca is a local celebrity in her role as "office lady" at Whittier Elementary School. In my spare time I play and coach basketball plus have a little hobby where I play rockin' music for children & families in a band called The Not-Its!
In closing, I have lived in the Seattle area my entire life, which is a definite plus in a real estate professional. I love this city and enjoy being a member of our community. Being a Realtor at Lake & Company Real Estate is a wonderful fit for me...and my family! Lake's tremendous reputation in the city is a joy to be a part of. I know what there is to know about Seattle neighborhoods- ones to jump on and ones to avoid. I have an excellent track record and I come with great references. My belief is that the relationship between a real estate agent and a client lasts for life, not ends after closing on a home. I look forward to meeting you and discussing how I can exceed all of your real estate expectations!
"Danny helped me purchase my first home, so having him assist with the sale of my home was logical. He is very knowledgeable, prompt, and thorough. He made the process less overwhelming and was always there to help and explain. Thanks for everything"
Danny met with us at a stressful time, and without his invaluable advice, organizational skills, calming demeanor and problem-solving, I don’t know what we would have done. He explained his strategy, kept constantly in touch, and led us by the hand, scheduling a host of really excellent, courteous professionals including painter, landscaper, stager, sewer repair persons, cleaners, a fence erector, window washer, photographer, and more. We were willing to put in some elbow grease ourselves a...
"...made our home buying experience much more relaxed"
My husband and I were referred to Danny by our Mortgage broker who stressed the importance of having a real estate agent who is excellent with paperwork. She was right! Danny's ability to quickly get offers together and coordinate all other moving pieces ended up being the reason our offer was accepted. Danny was available and responsive whenever we needed him which made our home buying experience much more relaxed. We got the home we wante...
"We were first-time homebuyers in the increasingly competitive Seattle market, and Danny was an invaluable resource for us. He got us on the right path by helping us strategize about how to navigate through the process while maintaining our sanity. We had an offer accepted within four weeks -- much quicker than we had originally feared. We are very grateful to Danny for his help, and we'd absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell."
"...highly recommend working with Danny"
"We were introduced to Danny by our real estate agent who had moved out of state. He highly recommended Danny and we really liked Danny in the very first meeting. Danny was punctual, extremely professional and very easy to work with. He made us feel very comfortable. We had a lot of special cases and would also be overseas when our house would be listed. We had limited time to complete all formalities. Danny worked closely with us, was very responsive on...
We decided to work with Danny because we knew him through friends, the Ballard Community, and Whittier Elementary. We were confident that he would be reasonable and fair on both sides in this crazy Seattle housing market. We were looking to sell rather quickly due to circumstances after being in this house for over 10 years. We didn’t want to spend a lot of money upfront on updates or getting it ready to sell. Danny came in with a great plan to save money upfront with just the required updates...
"Danny...has exceptional knowledge of the landscape and how the market works in Seattle."
As first time homebuyers, we entered into the whole experience nervous and pretty clueless. From our first meeting, we felt like we could trust Danny. He listened to what we were looking for, asked great questions and in general got to know us as people- not just “home buyers”.
With each house we saw, Danny was able to point out what might make it a good fit for a family and where we might be compro...
"Without his invaluable advice, organizational skills, calming demeanor and problem-solving, I don’t know what we would have done"
Danny Adamson is the BEST agent and nicest person you could ever meet.
Danny hands-down is the absolute best, most helpful real estate agent I’ve encountered in my decades of moving around and running a small business. My husband and I hired Danny Adamson and his team to help us sell our home in Seattle. Danny smoothly guided us through the maze of things ...
"We not only found a house, but a friend!"
"Danny was a pleasure to work with throughout the process of finding a home. Even after the sale, he kept in touch and has helped enormously with finding good contractors. We not only found a house, but a friend!"
"...would definitely recommend Danny to anyone looking for an experienced realtor"
"Danny was a delight to work with. He is very personable and caring. He was very helpful in getting our house ready to sell, in taking care of the lawn during the sale process, and finally in helping the buyers to figure out how to make the sale go through! We would definitely recommend Danny to anyone looking for an experienced realtor."
“We highly recommend Danny Adamson as a seller's agent. Danny recently sold our Ballard house for us, getting well over (+24%) our asking price. We interviewed several agents before asking Danny to work with us, and chose him because we liked his "bedside manner", positive but realistic attitude, and knowledge of the local real estate market. Further, we needed a true full service agent to assist us with, and sometimes outright manage, some minor home improvements we wanted to have done befor...
“We loved working with Danny, it made buying our next place easy and hassle-free!”
