    "Thank you Rachel!"

    This was our first home purchase and Rachel made the process so clear to us. She took our requirements and found the perfect house for us. She was always optimistic about finding the perfect place and during the process offered guidance on how to get what we wanted. She is an asset to Lake and an excellent example of the perfect realtor. Thank you Rachel!

    "Elisa helped secure the perfect home in the extremely competitive Seattle 2020 pandemic market!"

    After watching Seattle Real Estate closely for a few years, I was doing what I thought was going to be window shopping in preparation for buying the following year after saving a bit more for a larger down payment. We went and looked at a house & some nearby townhomes (I had picked out one, but Elisa took me to see a few more nearby to compare). We then went to look at a somewhat neglected mid-century home in a great location. It was on a quiet street, with beautiful gardens, and a ton of potential. I fell in love instantly and Elisa helped me quickly put together an offer for what we knew would be a very popular home. We ended up in a highly competitive multi-offer situation with over a dozen bids; the guidance I received from Elisa ended up being spot on, with my bid being the second highest but with the most compelling terms for the seller. Elisa helped secure the perfect home in the extremely competitive Seattle 2020 pandemic market. She was with me every step of the way and even continued to assist with repair recommendations even after the purchase was complete! As a ????????woman, it was also extremely important to me to have a very LGBTQ+ competent agent to help me feel safe, respected, and cared for. Elisa was perfect for that, helping guide me throughout a process that can be a bit daunting... and now I have a home that I love!

    "Thank you for your top notch work on our behalf!"

    The Board of Directors of ICA-USA wish to extend our heartfelt appreciation for your excellent service recently in successfully selling our unique office condo property in Seattle. The high quality of your work was the subject of an upbeat discussion this weekend at our December Board meeting. Your advice and counsel in marketing our property proved insightful and right-on-the-money. Your patience and persistence in promoting and re-promoting our property made all the difference. In the end, the sale could not have occurred at a better time for the interests of ICA-USA. Thank you for your top notch work on our behalf.

    "She Was Very Responsive And Professional!"

    We were buying a home from overseas. We had a lot of issues to deal with and Claudine never skipped a beat or batted an eye at the complexities of helping us buy a home from overseas. She was very responsive and professional and we had complete trust in her. If you want a realtor who is dependable, professional and experienced, Claudine is the one for you. If we are ever in the need to sell of buy again we will 100% use her again.

    "Thank you!"

    We have already been providing your information to others. You were kind and thoughtful and straightforward. We very much appreciated all of your hard work for us. Thank you!

    "Sarah Puts Her Clients First!"

    We interviewed several agents before choosing Sarah to help us find our first house--mainly because we liked her patience, humor and down-to-earth style. She advised us wisely, finding us a house that was ideal for us when we had been ready to settle for something less than optimal. We saw it the day it came on the market, because of her, beating out competition in an aggressive buying market. Five years later, in the midst of an industry-wide slump, Sarah helped us sell that starter home and find an amazing deal on a second home. There was nothing easy about these transactions, and a lesser or less committed agent could not have pulled it off. We succeeded because Sarah puts her clients first, always, and because she developed a relationship with the selling agent. I highly recommend her.

    "Leslie has been a very good real estate agent!"

    Leslie has been a very good real estate agent-- helped us understand a lot of things on home buying and assist us throughout the whole process. Keep up the good work!

    "We were immediately impressed!"

    We loved working with Justin and would highly recommend him as an agent. He was reliable, always quick to answer email and phone calls, and provided a level of in-depth knowledge of properties in the Phinney Ridge and surrounding area that far exceeded our expectations. We worked with him over several months and he proved himself particularly useful in helping us to define the kind of house we wanted. We were immediately impressed by his fund of knowledge--- we had contemplated buying a ‘fixer’ and he was able to provide us with helpful estimates of the time and money required for projects we wanted and pointed out projects that would need to be done. He wasn’t afraid to tell us his honest opinion, even when it wasn’t exactly what we wanted to hear. And we were delighted that he covered our move as a gift when we finally found our dream home.

    "Thank you so much for using your terrific abilities!"

    Karen, you exceeded our expectations in every way. You are exceptionally well organized and your people skills are superb. We feel fortunate indeed that we had your good sense and excellent negotiating skills to rely on. Your service to us was of the absolutely highest quality, it could not have been exceeded. Thank you so much for using your terrific abilities in our behalf.

    "Highly likely to recommend"

    Brie is extremely easy to work with. She answered every question quickly. Brie really listened to what I wanted and took lots of time to show me what options I had. She made the buying process easy and enjoyable. I highly recommend working with her.

    "Justyna is a phenomenal realtor! "

    Justyna is a phenomenal realtor! As first-time homebuyers, she answered all of our questions and put us at ease, as well as took our personalities and style to heart when looking for houses to tour. In addition, she is extremely responsive and knowledgeable about the local market, which allowed us to see homes of interest quickly and stay competitive. Justyna helped us land our first home (with all of our core needs – open kitchen concept, spacious backyard, in budget, and more bedrooms than we thought we could afford) in a highly-competitive market and time of year. I can honestly say I would not look elsewhere when we are ready to sell or buy a home. Justyna is one-of-a-kind – she is responsive, experienced, passionate, and goes the extra mile when it comes to her clients. Oh, and did I mention she loves doggos too ??!

    "We trusted Claire and we're glad we did!"

    We trusted Claire and we're glad we did! We would recommend her to close friends and family. She was a terrific guide and we consider the process and sale a success. Thank you!

    "Larissa is easily the best real estate agent!"

    Larissa is easily the best real estate agent. She helped us every step of the way make the right decisions to make our house attractive and sale ready. When there were a few big hiccups in the plan, Larissa easily dispelled any worry and came up with a plan to help us navigate changing conditions to get the house ready. She's personable, friendly and excited to make a deal! We will hire Larissa in the future and definitely recommend her to anyone looking to sell their house or look for a new house!

    "She went above and beyond for us!"

    We recently had the pleasure of working with Sarah-Cate throughout the process of selling our townhome and purchasing our new house. Throughout the selling process, we were consistently amazed at how much she made us feel like we were her only customers, when we knew we weren’t! We were regularly updated on the status of viewings and interested buyers, and always kept in the loop about changes to the market. SC’s list of contacts for stagers and contractors is impressive, and easy to conform to any budget. We had very few comps to the townhome in our area, so through much of the process we would have been flying blind if it wasn’t for placing 100% trust in SC’s expertise. In the end, we were thrilled to have found lovely buyers who came in at our asking price, and we couldn’t have been happier! When we were finally able to start looking for houses, SC made the process simple and painless. We again put full trust in her as we navigated the market. Her keen eye for details helped us weed out homes that seemed to be in our price range at first look, but would have ended up sinking our budget in the long run. When we happened upon our eventual home, SC’s assertiveness got us a viewing immediately, two days earlier than scheduled. We fell in love with the home right away, and were grateful for SC being with us to verify it was the real deal. She went above and beyond for us, befriending the sellers and helping us strike a deal in order to avoid a bidding war we wouldn’t have been able to win. The whole buying process only took a month for us, and we could not have done it without Sarah-Cate! We honestly can’t say enough good things about SC’s professionalism, expertise, and trustworthiness. She’s an absolute joy to work with and is number one at the top of our list of recommended real estate agents!

    "Highly likely to recommend"

    I had been renting in North Seattle for the past 10 years and with the recent correction in Real Estate prices I knew it was time to buy but I could not seem to find anything appropriate in the area I had been living in. <br/><br/>Lisa Wallace-Baker's knowledge of the housing market gave her the idea to suggest and look at some outlying areas and she found an amazing, perfect two br two ba condo for me up in Mountlake Terrace. The neighborhood is quiet and slow paced which is exactly what I was looking for.<br/><br/>I would recommend Lisa to anyone who is seriously looking to buy a house or condo. Lisa seems to be able to see from the buyer's perspective which to me was really important.

    " I wholeheartedly recommend him!"

    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 listings. We wanted to see every house that seemed like a possible fit, and he was always happy to show us. He kept us feeling positive but was also realistic about the market, and cautioned us against settling for a house that didn't meet our needs. Most of the homes that fit our taste and budget were older, and many of them were in need of remodeling or more serious work. Ross's knowledge of remodeling and the underlying systems of houses -- foundation, electrical, plumbing, etc. -- was invaluable and gave us the confidence we needed to buy a house that wasn't already entirely fixed up. When we found the right house, it was during a fast-moving seller's market where most listings had multiple offers. Ross knows how to craft a strong offer and helped us put together a mortgage/escrow team that got our offer accepted and closed. We ended up with a nicer house and better location than we thought possible, and I am confident that it is Ross's skills that gave us the edge to make it happen. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who wants to buy real estate in Seattle!

    "Thank you for your support!"

    Thank you for your support, hard work, kindness and diligence.

    "Kristen is trustworthy and gives insightful feedback!"

    Kristen is the ultimate professional. She has a superlative work ethic. Our family has come to rely on her on more than one occasion with regard to selling our home and assessing its value. Kristen is trustworthy and gives insightful feedback while getting the job done.

    "Highly likely to recommend"

    Kristen was quick to respond when we needed appraisals after separating. She is very knowledgable and an excellent communicator, Quick and concise, you get the information without extra sales tactics. Very PRO! I will definitely use her for the sale of my homes.

    "I'd be happy to recommend her!"

    Barbara represented my husband and I in the purchase of our condo and later the sale of that condo and purchase of another property. She was a pleasure to work with and made the entire home-buying experience smooth and stress free. Barbara listened to our wants and needs and didn't pressure us to look beyond these parameters. She was very organized and thorough but also helped us move through the process very quickly. I will definitely use Barbara again for our future real estate needs and I'd be happy to recommend her to my friends and family.

    "Could not have asked for better service!"

    We used Joseph in the process of purchasing our home. We highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy. We had heard from man y friends who bought homes in the area that they had been involved in bidding wars. This made us very reluctant to begin the process of looking at home. I wanted to get it done ASAP, Joseph made this possible. He made himself very available to show us homes, and was very prompt when responding to our emails. With all of his help we were able to move into our new home in a mere three weeks! Could not have asked for better service. We are very fortunate to have found Joseph.

    "We trust her completely and we are so grateful!"

    Terry is the reason we were able to purchase our dream home. She worked day and night negotiating on our behalf. She is very informed about everything in purchasing a home. We trust her completely and we are so grateful. Thank you!

    "Highly likely to recommend"

    Kristen is the best!!! I honestly think we would not have got the house we wanted if she had not been involved in the process. In such a competitive market you need to have the best professionals on your side or you will be lost

    "He Has My Complete Confidence!"

    Jason Wall has my complete confidence and appreciation in all Classic City Homes Inc. real estate transactions. He has formed a marketing strategy which has managed over 7 million dollars of Classic City Homes Inc. Real estate product. From the Greenlake Drive project in 1997 to the current project on Interlake Ave North (and many in-between) Jason has represented Classic City Homes and the product to the standards of excellence and professionalism I expect and count on for a successful team.

    "I would recommend him completely!"

    I knew right away I wanted Justin to be my real estate agent. He has been helpful in so many ways. His ideas and advice brought the sale of my house to a quick and successful end. I would recommend him completely.

    "Fortunate to have her!"

    Aune went above and beyond to find me a new home. She never complained and I always could count on her to be on time. You're fortunate to have her on your staff!

    "She works with outstanding support professionals!"

    Lisa is an outstanding advocate for you as a buyer's agent, and we would recommend her to anyone looking for a local agent who works for you. Lisa is not an agent who will find the houses for you: the onus of locating your next home is on you. Once you find the house you looking for, Lisa is immediate in sending you further information and offering an objective opinion if requested. She is very mindful of her role in the process, and you remain in control of your decisions. She works with outstanding support professionals, lending agents, home inspectors and plumbers. She is adept at keeping all the myriad pieces rolling to close a transaction.

    " Our family will forever be grateful for Lara"

    During the holiday season, my wife and I like to reflect back upon the reason we have to be grateful. One that we consistently reflect upon is our good fortune. We have been blessed in many ways, but it hasn’t been until recently that we realized it really isn’t ‘good fortune’ that we have to be grateful for, it is for people like Lara. Not only is she one of the best in her industry, but she and her family have also become close friends. She has shown us time and time again her commitment to making big things happen for our family. She represented us during the purchase and sale of our home in WA, my only regret was that she couldn’t represent us on the purchase of our latest home in ID. Nevertheless, she personally recommended and brokered an introduction to another fantastic agent. With her help, we were able to take advantage of the explosive housing market growth which in turn allowed us the financial freedom to purchase our dream home in ID. Our family will forever be grateful for Lara and her friendship.

    "We found Kim to be very open and honest!"

    As first-time home buyers, we found Kim to be very open and honest when discussing all of our concerns. She clearly identified all of the responsibilities of the buyers and sellers, in addition to laying out a necessary timeline for inspections, offers, closing, etc. Kim responded to all of our questions quickly, and was there alongside us at every stage. We would certainly recommend her to anyone looking for a friendly, reliable real estate agent.

    "The BEST experience I have had!"

    We had an amazing experience with Larissa, she was very knowledgeable with the surrounding area on what related homes were selling at and the strengths/weaknesses of the market. She was always responsive and always picked up the phone when I called and answered every question I had (basic and complicated questions). Larissa also had great ideas such as staging my townhome which I was hesitant at first but trusted her judgement and it paid off tremendously. I would recommend Larissa to any family, friend or stranger that is looking to buy or sell a home. Top notch service and very friendly. The BEST experience I have had selling or buying a home.

    "We will definitely be referring our friends to you!"

    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.

    "Ross is a wonderful person!"

    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!
