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
I met Ross at an open house he was hosting during an exploratory trip to Seattle. I had looked at quite a few houses that trip and was not ready to buy, but just wanted to get an idea of what the market was like. I was impressed by Ross's knowledge, candor, and lack of hard sell tactics, and knew at that point that I wanted to work with him when we were ready to move.
I'm so glad I kept his card. Ross quickly learned what my wife and I liked and valued in houses, and found us appropriate lis...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
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 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
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 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
Thanks for all your hard work and for sticking with us during a trying closing process.
Thank you for making the process of selling my home relatively easy. I watched my neighbor sell his home and he didn't get nearly the support from his agent that I received from you.
Even my architect friend was impressed by your professionalism and knowledge.
Thanks so much.
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!
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 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.
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
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.
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
Ross really is as good as it gets in Seattle's crazy real estate market. He helped us buy our home in Seattle 3.5 years ago, after a somewhat picky, several month long search. We loved our home, and continued to rely on Ross for his home renovating and resale expertise as well as his extensive list of local contacts to help do some projects around the house.
When it came time to sell our home, despite several agent referrals from friends, we had no doubt we would ask Ross to help us again. In...see more
Ross went above and beyond the expectations of a buying and listing agent! He was professional and knew when to listen and when to act. Thank you, friend!
We really appreciate the hard work you put into getting us this home- you definitely went the extra mile (especially helping me schedule my hardwood floor contractors!) We are very pleased with our purchase. We will definitely be referring our friends to you when they look for a home.
