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.
We are very happy with our whole home buying experience!
Thank you so much! You were a huge part of making this process so easy for us.
Appreciate all the help with the home buying process! We had some big fears going into this process and you made those go away. Totally will be sending our friends to you as they get ready to buy, too.
Thank you again for all you helped us accomplish with our house sale!
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 our buyer agent as we looked for a beach home in the San Juans and Whidbey Island. When we found a place that we were interested in Ross was very prompt to research the property, provide background information, set up viewing times, research comparable properties, and find geotech engineers as needed. Even though we have been homeowners for over 30 years we were novices to the current purchasing process. Ross’s wealth of knowledge and attention to detail gave us full confidence as he ...see more
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.
Thank you so much for guiding us through this difficult market with wisdom and patience. You went above and beyond.
Ross is a wonderful person. He listens to our needs, concerns, and requirements. We are the first time home buyer. Ross help out during the entire process and educate us a lot. He always pt our needs above everything and he does not settle with a "so so" house. He find us a house that fits all of our requirements. He let us control the whole process from making an offer to closing the house. Thank you!
Thanks for all your help during the process. We appreciate very much the fun process and the warm friendship!
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.

Thank you so much for everything you did for us during our house hunting process! Thanks for being an awesome party bus/van driver. I appreciated your flexibility in always taking us around last minute and your willingness to see a few sketch places Josh and I put on the list. Your humor made what I was expecting to be a painful process way, way more fun than I could have imagined! Thank you for everything!
Ross Hartwich went over and beyond the call of duty as a Realtor. We had a positive buy and sell experience with Ross and was by far the best Realtor we have worked with. Ross gave us great guidance and made both processes as smooth as possible.
We are thankful for his work efforts and for sure will recommend him to all who are in need of a Realtor. We love our new home!
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!
Rarely is it easy to offer unhesitating praise for someone who has helped you in the plying of a trade. Ross Hartwich inspires such praise in me. I was in need of a new home, and I was, like many these days, unspeakably busy with ongoing commitments. I was going to require a really energetic alliance. I had spent a year or so relying on another agent who just didn't have that steam. Then I met Ross at an open house--he enthusiastically helped me make sense of the place I was looking at, to a lev...see more
Being a single female first time home buyer in the Seattle was daunting, to say the least. I started the housing search with vague sense of what I was looking for and not 100% sure I would ever be able to find it. Ross came highly recommended through friends who had recently purchased a home in Seattle. He was a HUGE asset and can't imagine having gone through the process without him. He was incredibly helpful in guiding me every step of the way and making it feel much less formidable (and actua...see more
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
Living in Idaho, and selling a home in Seattle, with absolutely no free time, seemed to be a near impossible task. How could we get the house ready to sell, after 4 years of renters? When would we find time to move our things into storage? The yard is a mess, when are we possibly going to be there to clean up and make it presentable? How will we afford to do all this? One meeting with Ross and it all became clear and easy.
Ross immediately laid out the plan for us. He would have the folks he ...see more
