My husband Ben and I recently completed the home buying process (for the first time) with Ross as our guide and broker, and we were quite satisfied with the service he provided us. His knowledge of the local real estate market, friendly personality and untiring willingness to work with us on our terms made him an invaluable asset during our house hunting experience.
Ross's professional understanding of the real estate market in Seattle, along with his considerable experience living here made...see more
Ross is a wonderful, kind, and caring agent that really made our first home buying experience a great one. I really don't think my wife and I would have gotten the house we were after if it weren't for his experience and professionalism. Can't speak highly enough of him. Ross does an excellent job of guiding you through the process, making sure you understand everything, and finding the right house for you. He's the only agent we'll work with in the future for sure!
Ross was extraordinary to work with! He definitely went the extra mile to make sure we were comfortable with the sale of our house. It all went smoothly and sold very quick. We would not hesitate to recommend his services. He took the stress out of a stressful situation and we'll be forever grateful! Thank you Ross!
Many thanks Ross for making yourself as available as possible, researching our options [at the Seattle Department of Planning and Land Use], and helping us see it through!
Ross was great to work with. As first time homebuyers he expertly explained and taught us tons about the process, houses, and even provided some great tips for home improvement ideas.
We feel truly lucky to have such an informative, thorough, and level-headed agent to work with throughout the process. Because of Ross, our homebuying process was way easier than we expected it to be.
We have nothing but positive things to say about Ross. Our home search in Seattle was mostly remote, as we were living out of state. From the very beginning Ross was considerate and cognizant of our time constraints and he was diligent to follow up with any question or concern that we raised.
We began looking at home with another company, but they weren't able to find new construction, non-listed homes very easily. On our own we found a home that we were curious about and contacted the listi...see more
We recently purchased our first home and Ross Hartwich was our broker. My husband, Tomas, works at Google in Fremont and I stay home with our 18 month old son. When we started the house search we were very overwhelmed. Especially after hearing hearing horror stories from friends about bidding wards starting on houses. Tomas wanted to be able to walk or bike to work, so the areas we could live in were a little limited.
After meeting Ross, he sent me new properties to look at every day. We had ...see more
When I first contacted Lake & Co., it was because I wanted to get some advice from an agent, not necessarily to hire, but because I was having some issue with the agent I was working with at that time from another company. Ross Hartwich answered my call, and little did I know how lucky I was that he was available to chat with me that day.
A few days later we met up, we talked about the problem I was having while he showed me a house per my request, and he gave me the best advice and support ...see more
Ross was wonderful to work with, and we felt like we were in the best hands possible throughout the entire process. He provided great advice and wisdom, but also supported us in our decisions-- doing everything he could to make sure we had the best chance to get the house we truly wanted. Following our purchase, he's made sure we have everything we need and gone the extra mile to help us get settled in. Great experience and we're thrilled with our new home.
Ross made selling our townhome so easy for us. He was able to coordinate an army of subcontractors (paint, carpet, landscape, general repairs, staging, photography, and probably others) in very short window of time to get the house ready for the market. He was very responsive to all of our questions and comments and always carried a warm smile. Ross was also flexible with times meeting times to fit it into our busy schedules.
We would certainly work with Ross again and will pass on our highe...see more
Ross was great. He really went the extra mile for me and provided invaluable advice throughout the sales process.
I am writing to provide my strongest endorsement of Ross Hartwich as a realtor. Ross excelled in all phases of the real estate process - from deep knowledge, which aided in the house hunt, to exceptional customer service and responsiveness, which was critical during the closing process, to his follow through in getting us fully settled in our new home. Bottom line - Ross was a dream broker who greatly exceeded all expectations.
Ross has detailed knowledge of home renovation, which proved e...see more
Thanks for all your hard work and for sticking with us during a trying closing process.
Thank you so much for helping me fin the perfect townhouse! You are an amazing broker-- I really lucked out. You definitely went above and beyond the call of duty in every sense. You are very patient, accommodating, and most importantly, knowledgeable of the whole process. You made what could have been a very stressful process FUN.
We love Ross! Excellent job!
Thank you so much for guiding us through this difficult market with wisdom and patience. You went above and beyond.
Thanks so much for all of your hard work. The late night calls, questions, and support didn't go unnoticed. We will be recommending you all over the place. Mario and I are over the moon about the new house and we know without you we might not be there now. We love you! Thanks again.
Ross is one of the best realtors that I know. He is personable and engaging and professional and goes out of his way to understand my needs. I never get that salesman vibe and always enjoy working with him.
