"Keryn was great, everything processed smoothly and we closed on time!"
Ian W, Tacoma (Buyer) Fri, 27 Jul 2018 09:08:59 +1000
"We absolutely loved working with Keryn Giguere! Keryn was very supportive of us as first-time homebuyers, and she was quick to respond to all of our questions with both thoughtful answers and great advice. She recommended a great lender (Heather Hendrix, with Directors Mortgage) and the two of them were a fabulous team, working together on our behalf.
With our initial conversations and during each viewing, Keryn helped us to narrow our focus on the kind of home we were really interested in. She knows Tacoma - and the Tacoma real estate market - very well, and was able to help us think carefully about the pros and cons of each home and each neighborhood we were considering. When we were ready to make an offer, Keryn helped us to put together an offer that was both competitive and within our comfort zone, and she helped us to understand and negotiate each subsequent step after our offer was accepted.
Keryn is a joy to work with, and we highly recommend her to anyone who is in the market for a home in Tacoma!"
Jen & Deb, Tacoma, WA (Buyer) Thu, 26 Jul 2018 13:36:37 +1000
"Keryn is friendly and accessible and I appreciated how easy it was to communicate with her during the sale. She had a great photographer/videographer and made the whole process very smooth and hassle free."
Jennevieve Schlemmer, Tacoma, WA (Seller) Sat, 23 Jun 2018 06:53:54 +1000
"I had a lot of questions and anxiety as a first time home-buyer, and Keryn really carried me through the process. Through the "looking phase" Keryn helped me refine what I wanted and needed from a house and was flexible around my schedule. In the end Keryn took me to a house I never would have picked, and now I live there! The home-buying experience with Keryn was great, and I'll definitely keep in touch for real-estate needs and chill-vibes. Thanks Keryn!"
Sydney Bronson, Tacoma (Buyer) Fri, 08 Jun 2018 08:14:05 +1000
"Keryn was great. She was flexible. I lived in another state when I began the purchase process with Keryn, and she used Skype (online video chat service) for the first time so that I didn't have to make a trip to Tacoma to have my initial meeting with her. She handled all of the necessary details quickly, competently, and with a smile. If I ever have need of a real estate professional in Tacoma again, it is to Keryn that I shall turn. Whenever it is clear that someone is in need of an agent in Tacoma, I shall recommend her unreservedly."
Michael Russell (Buyer) Sun, 27 May 2018 06:35:34 +1000
"Buying a home is a huge investment and can be a little scary, but working with Karyn alleviated most of those fears! She was attentive to our individual needs, and at no time did she try getting us to go outside the price range we were comfortable with nor outside the neighborhood we desired to live in. She was always quick to patiently respond to all questions we had. I appreciated that she knew Tacoma really well and shared our love for the city we choose to live in :)"
Ed Robinson, Tacoma Washington (Buyer) Sat, 12 May 2018 04:20:44 +1000
"Keryn kept us calm in a stressful multiple offer situation. She made good recommendations based on our feedback and communicated often.
This is a really challenging market at the moment and we feel really grateful to have purchased a home in our desired neighborhood with her help."
Jane Whipple, Tacoma (Buyer) Sun, 29 Apr 2018 08:04:36 +1000
"Keryn was great! She knows the Tacoma market inside and out. We were scared going in with so much competition as first time home buyers but she put us at ease and gave us expert advice on houses, locations, and offer details. We only put in two offers and the second one was accepted right away! Then we were off and running, she coordinated everything flawlessly and we closed in under 30 days! We would strongly recommend her to help you find your new home."
Katie Woodfork, Tacoma (Buyer) Fri, 27 Apr 2018 05:31:40 +1000
"Keryn is related to the gal who helped us buy the house and have gotten to know Keryn’s style through social media. She seemed like the perfect fit for us!
She made everything so easy and actually fun in a stressful process. Her constant contact and positive attitude was such a breath of fresh air.
Her knowledge of Tacoma’s market and trends was impressive and spot on when we set the price and reviewed offers.
She breaks the mold!"
Erin Matzke, Tacoma sale (Seller) Thu, 26 Apr 2018 02:43:06 +1000
"Because we were very limited in our selection of neighborhood, Keryn's knowledge of the downtown area mattered almost exclusively to us.
Still have a hard time believing that Keryn helped us find a place that had every single wished-for item on our checklist. Things that I thought were unlikely or impossible to find, we ended up getting in our new place. She was supportive of our search, while helping us remain on-course and realistic. Great experience and would recommend her 100%!"
Dan Barkley, Tacoma (Buyer) Mon, 02 Apr 2018 05:00:24 +1000
"I knew Keryn from the Tacoma Theatre Scene and I was anxious to work with her because of her passion, drive, and ability to explain complicated real estate concepts clearly.
Keryn is extremely skilled at making the complicated process seem simpler. She is very detail oriented.
Keryn treated us like we were her only clients. She was attentive, easy to reach, and explained each step of the process thoroughly. She was kind and helpful!
I was much less overwhelmed by all the ins and outs of house buying with the assistance of Keryn.
I would recommend Keryn highly, especially for confused, millennial, first-time homebuyers!"
Kaylie and Dylan Hussey; Tacoma, WA (Buyer) Tue, 13 Mar 2018 07:08:54 +1000
"Keryn stands out in my eyes because of her creativity and her want to succeed in selling my house quickly. She took beautiful pictures of the home and created a wonderful video that showed every aspect of the house to the buyers. She went out of her way on every aspect of the sale with always being in constant contact and making sure I was comfortable with every decision made. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to sell their house. I really feel like her way of being a real estate agent is very innovative and unique. Thanks, Keryn!!!"
Magen Boles, Tacoma WA (Seller) Tue, 13 Mar 2018 06:45:13 +1000
"Buying a house for the first time could be intimitating, but my experience wasn't bad at all! Keryn was a great help to me! She was easy to work with, super responsive to messages and alway kept me updated. She gave me great information about the Tacoma housing market. And when I asked for her thoughts on a property, she gave her thoughts but wasn't being pushy at all. Thank you Keryn for your assistance!"
QC, Renton (Buyer) Sat, 10 Mar 2018 09:09:52 +1000
"Keryn made the purchase of our first investment property so easy! She was always very responsive and helped us navigate a city that we were unfamiliar with (this took a lot of trust!) she was patient with us and always met our needs. We are so thankful to continue to work with Keryn in finding our second investment property."
Sarah Reichardt seattle (Buyer) Thu, 01 Mar 2018 16:43:36 +1000
"Keryn Giguere doesn’t just find houses for people, she finds HOMES for people. Thank you for helping us find our “forever home”! We’ve never been happier!!!"

Keryn is the best! She is very knowledgeable about the neighborhoods in Tacoma, always available, and quick to respond to any of my questions. She is also such a pleasant human to interact with on the biggest purchase of your life! Her pleasing demeanor and bright personality really helped to put me at ease when things got hectic with negotiations, repair work updates, apprasial, and dealing with the selling agent. I am so happy I went with Keryn Giguere as my buyer's agent, she made the whole home buying process such a breeze.
Logan McClinton Tacoma, WA (Buyer) Wed, 20 Dec 2017 07:54:36 +1000
"Keryn is patient, hardworking, and truly listens to her client’s needs. Keryn started her odyssey with us over a year and a half ago when we wanted to sell our first home. She met us at the house and gave us honest feedback on the improvements that needed to happen before listing our home. She checked back in with 6 months later, and rather than pressuring us to list at the start of the “hot” season, she encouraged us to keep going and finish the long list of improvements, to see the best returns. When it came time to list, Keryn marketed it like fine jewelry, with the best photography and multiple open houses. When the right buyer came along, Keryn worked hard to clear any roadblocks and was an amazing advocate for us.
With the sale of the house locked down, Keryn turned around seamlessly using her superb skills to help us secure our perfect family home. In the end, she performed quite the miracle in orchestrating the close of both homes to happen nearly simultaneously, while never leaving us without a roof over our heads. We could not be more grateful for Keryn."
Duncan's, Lakewood WA (Buyer) Tue, 19 Dec 2017 10:10:47 +1000
"When I met Keryn, I had just about given up on buying my first house due to a very negative experience with another broker. However, some good friends of mine had recently worked with Keryn to buy their new home and strongly encouraged me to contact her. I'm so happy that I did! After just a few moments of meeting with Keryn, I could tell that she was "the one." Her openness, candor, and professionalism immediately put me at ease. Keryn is a gifted communicator and works exceptionally hard for her clients. Plus, she is incredibly patient and knowledgeable about the real estate market, as well as current trends. She took her time getting to know me and really listened to what was important to me. It became obvious that Keryn genuinely wanted to help me find the perfect home...And we did!!! She gave me confidence every step of the way and was always available to answer my questions. Thanks to Keryn, my dream home is now a reality. I highly recommend her to anyone looking at buying or selling a home. Not only does Keryn put everything she has into working hard for her clients, but she is truly a joy to work with."
Heather Taft Tacoma (Buyer) Fri, 15 Dec 2017 05:05:34 +1000
"This was our first home, so putting it on the market was new territory for us. Luckily, we had Keryn by our side the whole time! Two things really stood out when working with Keryn. The first was her availability through all means - text, phone and in person. If we had any questions, she was there to answer them. By the time the buyers' inspection had been completed, we had already moved out of town and could not meet the electrician at the house to have the electric panel inspected. Again, Keryn was there to ensure the electrician was able to access the house. Her attentiveness and open lines of communication really made this process worry-free and easy. The other thing that really stood out was her ad campaign for the house. She brought in a photographer and made a blog page specifically for the house that was amazing! It even included a video of the property. Compared to comparable houses on the market at the time, it really stood out because of the time she took to market the house. Overall, we were very impressed and happy that we chose Keryn to sell our house. We would definitely recommend her to family and friends!"
Aaron & Brett, Tacoma (Seller) Mon, 25 Sep 2017 08:18:45 +1000
"Keryn was so patient and understanding as we were deciding what we really needed in a home. She made a great effort to try to read between the lines and present us with a variety of styles and locations that met our needs. She also gave us as many opportunities as we needed to explore available homes and gave us very honest feedback on how she thought they would work for us (however great they might be for someone else). Her intimate understanding of Tacoma made her an invaluable guide, even for a couple of locals.
We wound up purchasing in a neighborhood she strongly recommended but which we had not originally considered, and it's truly a perfect fit. When it came time to negotiate, she held a strong line with the seller's agent to protect our interests. When we finally reached mutual, she kept the pressure on our lender to ensure an on-time closing. Keryn is a true professional, and we'd highly recommend her to anyone buying in Tacoma."
Z. Brackney, Tacoma WA (Buyer) Tue, 08 Aug 2017 05:37:48 +1000
"Keryn was able to provide valuable market research to ensure we priced our home for maximum value and quick offers. She helped coordinate various contractors for needed repairs, and had knowledgeable professionals at hand when needed"
Arthur Schnitzer Tacoma WA (Seller) Sat, 22 Jul 2017 01:48:18 +1000
"My partner and I have lived in Tacoma for 10+ years and deeply care about this city and community. Having a real estate agent that also cared about Tacoma, where it's been and where it's going, was the most important thing to me. I was able to have very honest conversations with Keryn that had been tricky to have with other folks within the real estate business. Real estate agents are on the front lines of this changing city! So having someone sharp, contentious, and compassionate was so important. We were referred to Keryn by a friend and were so pleased with that choice.
I do not envy real estate agents - their jobs are so demanding. But Keryn made it all seem easy! There were so many places that things could have fallen through the cracks and Keryn juggled all the moving parts with grace. We knew we were in excellent hands with Keryn.
Having a real estate agent that you feel 100% comfortable and confident with is so important - and Keryn was so honest, down-to-earth, and (most of all) fun! She was a joy to be around. Buying a house is a stressful situation, so having someone on your side that you consider a friend is so important. Keryn helped make this transition as easy and enjoyable as possible. She's simply the best.
The staff at Windermere were so friendly! I was offered coffee (WITH CREAM!) every time we went to the office. Luxury."
Micaela Cooley, Tacoma (Buyer) Sat, 08 Jul 2017 04:41:49 +1000
"I truly loved working with Keryn Giguere. She provided the expertise we needed as well as a calming voice of reason. She definitely helped me roll with the punches of this process of buying a home in Tacoma as someone new to the area. She was kind, respectful and assertive at the right times. Keryn helped me come up with a really smart offer and throughout the negotiation process of buying a 100 year old home, she helped get the most value out of the home as well (new roof and lots of detail repairs). We found our dream home and I can't imagine having done it without her. I would absolutely recommend her. I truly think of her as my first Tacoma friend, which says a lot!"
Erin Kelley, Tacoma (Buyer) Sat, 01 Jul 2017 09:08:02 +1000
"The Tacoma market is nuts right now. Keryn warned me of this prior to me sticking my toes in and searching for my first home. Keryn came highly recommended by a friend of mine who bought her first home last year and I had met Keryn a few times in social situations, so I felt very comfortable with her as a person. The only thing that gave me pause about using her as an agent was whether or not I would be able to be a jerk if necessary. I had heard horror stories about people having to be very firm in negotiations and was concerned that I wouldn't want to look bad or mean in front of a friend. It's funny, when I look back now just how off-base that was. When it came to making sure my interests were being guarded Keryn was an absolute pitbull and when things broke down, as they sometimes do, I feel like there's a very good chance that she was actually more heartbroken than I was. She is an incredibly ethical, empathetic, funny human with an amazing thirst for knowledge in her field.
I felt completely comfortable taking all of her recommendations, knowing that they were in my best interest. I can't think of a single reason why I would recommend anyone besides her!"
Andrina Tacoma, WA (Buyer) Wed, 24 May 2017 03:44:00 +1000
"Our sale became very stressful when other buyers tried to out bid us. But Keryn Giguere took it in stride and had a strategy, we got our house and at the sellers price. We additionally got ALL new appliances & repairs done- which may not have happened, or happen on time. But Keryn made sure they did!
I highly recommend Keryn Giguere to be your realtor. She handles every aspect of locating & buying your home in a professional, pleasant, confident & efficient manner!"
Wong & Sara Lee, Port Angeles WA (Buyer) Thu, 18 May 2017 11:01:58 +1000
"Keryn's love for Tacoma as the city in which she works and lives is apparent. Whether you are moving to the area or current residents like us, Keryn is the perfect choice to help you find your home. She is knowledgeable, professional, attentive and always makes you feel like you are her top priority. She patiently helped us navigate through the often stressful and emotional process of buying a home, making it as painless and happy experience as possible. We would definitely work with her again and have already recommended her to friends who are looking to buy."
Sarah & Jake McClintock, Tacoma (Buyer) Tue, 25 Apr 2017 08:38:46 +1000
"Keryn Giguere was the perfect match for us! We were intimidated by the process of buying our first house, but Keryn made it easy and accessible, and we knew we could trust her. She made us feel like she was on our team and always had our backs.
Keryn is thoughtful, funny, and super approachable. Plus, she knows her stuff! Keryn was extremely easy to work with, attentive to our questions, validating of our concerns, and responsive throughout the process. She helped us navigate every bump in the road and got us into a home that we love. We cannot recommend Keryn highly enough!"
Bailey and Elise, Tacoma (Buyer) Mon, 23 Jan 2017 15:03:19 +1000
"Keryn put up with my indecisiveness and goofy humor while we were seeing houses, helped me know my possible actions during negotiations, and gave good advice throughout the process that was helpful. She often drew parallels to previous experiences with clients to help me understand what possible outcomes situations could lead to. When I met her at Karaoke night at E9, I would have never guessed she'd help me buy a house several months later. Funny how stuff works out!"
Ruel Merrill Tacoma, WA (Buyer) Sat, 21 Jan 2017 07:34:21 +1000
"I loved working with Keryn. She kept me in the loop every step of the way and answered any questions I had. She was always available to answer texts or chat on the phone. As a first time buyer, she was great at walking me through the process and explaining things every step of the way. I'm glad I got to work with Keryn and would gladly do it again."
Morgan Bennett, Tacoma (Buyer) Sun, 15 Jan 2017 15:56:46 +1000
"I have already recommended Keryn to a friend looking to sell her house and will continue to recommend Keryn in the future. She is great!!!
We loved how Keryn presented our house in marketing materials. Her photos and video were unique and well-executed. The excitement and creativity that Keryn brought to the sale of our home really paid off with the number of showings and the offer we had right after the house went on the market. In our neighborhood, houses can end up sitting for sale for awhile and we really credit Keryn's creative and comprehensive marketing plan with helping us sell our house so quickly.
With Keryn, it really seemed like we were all a part of a team working together to sell our house. As we were making some repairs while the sale was pending, Keryn was very helpful getting contractors out to the house and was able to help us manage the logistics of getting bids and repair work done.
Keryn has a great combination of youthful energy, great vision, professionalism, and an understanding of the market. Selling our house was almost fun!"
Yoshi and Peregrin, Tacoma, Washington (Seller) Sat, 19 Nov 2016 15:43:50 +1000
"I'm so excited to have the opportunity to write this review; when you receive the best possible service it's important to acknowledge it! Keryn went above and beyond in everything she did for me. She is super responsive to texts (even at 10:00 on a Sunday asking to see something early the next day). She quickly honed in on what was important to me, but she never pushed or cajoled. She is a consummate professional who is on top of communication and kept me in the loop along each step of the process. She was a great listener who would remind me of points I'd made in earlier visits when I seemed too quick to just want to hurry up and get it over and put an offer in.
Bottom line: I almost want to buy another house just so I can continue working with Keryn. Friends and family in the greater Tacoma and Pierce County area will certainly get a recommendation for Keryn without hesitation!"
Allyson Griffith, Tacoma (Buyer) Fri, 21 Oct 2016 18:07:43 +1000
"Keryn was always highly responsive at all times and a true pleasure to work with
I highly recommend Keryn to any new or experienced home buyer.
Thank you. I am thrilled with my home and neighborhood!"
Tami, Tacoma (Buyer) Fri, 21 Oct 2016 04:32:57 +1000
"Keryn was an important asset that we leaned on heavily to navigate the home buying process. We especially appreciate her ability to book inspectors in a timely fashion, write a competitive yet fair offer, and give us her honest opinion on properties and price points. We could always count on Keryn to give her honest opinion yet understand and defer if there was a disagreement. She was prompt in communications not only with us but with other agents and contractors. We knew that no matter how silly we thought a question was we could always ask Keryn. We would work with Keryn again in a heartbeat!"
Jill + Mark (Buyer) Tue, 16 Aug 2016 08:21:34 +1000
"Keryn was professional and easy to work with, and I really appreciated her genuine warmth and honesty. She seemed super-familiar with the local real estate scene, and was a great advocate during the process of buying our first home. Definitely recommended!"
Ben Haines, Tacoma (Buyer) Sat, 06 Aug 2016 03:12:49 +1000
"When I started looking to buy a house, I was very noncommittal and didn't really know what I was looking for. Over the following months, Keryn Giguere helped me figure out what kind of house I wanted, where I should look, and what I could afford. Through it all, she was patient, accessible, and - perhaps most important to me - fun! I'm very glad I got to learn about Washington real estate from Keryn. She's devoted to helping her clients have a great experience throughout what can be a frustrating process. I'm sure I'm not the only one of her clients who fully intends to invite Keryn to the housewarming party!"
Karen, Tacoma (Buyer) Sun, 29 May 2016 09:53:03 +1000
"Keryn Giguere exceeded all of our expectations! She was pure joy to work with, Keryn has an easy sense of humor that kept us upbeat. I felt like many of my questions were answered before I had to ask and she was prompt at returning communications. We feel so fortunate to have had such an expert guide us through our first home purchase!"
Mia Allen & Ben Stockman, Tacoma (Buyer) Wed, 11 May 2016 09:50:03 +1000
"We really loved working with Keryn! She was so personable and friendly, it was like working with a really helpful, knowledgable friend. She was really great at offering her professional insight and advice while still respecting our final decisions. She was communicative and reliable, and we knew we could contact her at any time with any questions we had, and if she didn't know the answer, she was able to draw on her professional network to get the right information for us. Buying our first home often felt like a long, daunting process but Keryn made the whole event simple, accessible, and low-stress for us."
Emmy Burns, Tacoma, WA (Buyer) Sun, 24 Apr 2016 06:21:45 +1000
"Keryn Giguere's communication is her strong suit. She made it easy on us, sending emails and texts throughout the very busy work week, and phone calls on my late drive home. She helped coordinate a place it would be convenient for me to quickly drop off the earnest money without having to miss time with my patients. Keryn understood our priorities and obligations outside of the home-buying process, and we felt our time was truly respected. She was dedicated to us finding (and purchasing, inspecting, etc) our ideal first home, and she was present and accessible through the entire process. We would recommend Keryn to anyone looking to purchase a home in Tacoma - with her knowledge of the area, expertise in negotiating, and her fun attitude, you are sure to have a similar great experience! Thanks for everything, Keryn!"
RJ and Ann Casey (Buyer) Tue, 15 Mar 2016 00:17:16 +1000
"As first-time homebuyers, we were very glad Keryn Giguere was our agent. She provided helpful (never over-bearing) advice as she guided us through the entire process. She was extremely patient and responsive. She quickly handled any paperwork and was always willing to work around our crazy schedule. We would definitely recommend her to family and friends!"
Melissa, Tacoma (Buyer) Sun, 13 Mar 2016 08:57:26 +1000
"Keryn was really great. As a first time home-buyer the process was very overwhelming and stressful, but Keryn really helped to calm my nerves by keeping us constantly updated and making the process as transparent as possible. We encountered several setbacks throughout, stemming from the seller's family and Keryn handled the negotiations very well. She definitely had our best interests in mind. She also worked tirelessly to keep the entire process on schedule and as low cost as possible, out of respect for our personal circumstances. She went out of her way to work around our differing work schedules, and was never more than a text/phone call away. Keryn Giguere is a wonderful up and coming talent in Tacoma real-estate, and I highly recommend working with her."
Mildred Nezbitt, Eastside Tacoma (Buyer) Sat, 12 Mar 2016 10:56:10 +1000
"Communicating with Keryn was always easy for me. She was extremely responsive to all of my texts, calls, and emails. She was also very personable, and I felt comfortable bringing up any concerns or questions I had with her. I am very grateful for how quickly Keryn was willing go see a house after I found one that I wanted to see. I found out early how fast you have to act once a great house comes on the market, and I probably wouldn't have the awesome house I have now if she hadn't set aside time to come see it with me on very short notice."
John Henderson, Tacoma (Buyer) Tue, 19 Jan 2016 11:41:40 +1000
"I met with Keryn and Marguerite Giguere before I met with any other brokers face-to-face. Their professionalism, honesty, and charming personalities were enough that I knew I didn't need to look any further.
Through out the entire process, Keryn was easy to communicate with and took the stress right out of buying a home. She worked hard to get the home I'm in and fought for what I wanted like she was buying the house. I will definitely go to Keryn again in the future and will be recommending her to all my friends. Keryn, you're the best!"
A. Sorrentino, Tacoma, WA (Buyer) Tue, 08 Dec 2015 13:19:49 +1000
"Working with Keryn Giguere was a joy! Not only was she prompt, knowledgeable and straight with us, she was also fun! When issues came up in the inspection, she guided us through how to navigate negotiation like a champ! Buying a home can be stressful and playing the waiting game can be hard, but we felt supported through the whole process. We would highly recommend Keryn if you're searching for your new home - you will not be disappointed!"
Mark and Maggie, Tacoma (Buyer) Tue, 01 Dec 2015 11:19:40 +1000
"Buying your first home can be intimidating. I used a VA loan, which has its own set of special considerations that can be frustrating. Working with a friendly, knowledgeable, accessible and brutally honest agent makes a world of difference. Keryn was all this and more for me. She was prompt when answering my questions no matter the time and professionally guided me through the entire process, relieving the stress I faced. I am in my dream home today thanks to Keryn Giguere."
Eric Williams, South Tacoma (Buyer) Tue, 20 Oct 2015 11:01:41 +1000
"Going into the process of buying our first home was a scary and intimidating process. We knew as soon as we met Keryn that we had found someone who would work for us. We initially chose Keryn because she was easy to talk to and immediately understood what we were looking for. She not only made the process easy, but we had a lot of fun with her. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to move to Tacoma."
Angie Prince, Tacoma (Buyer) Sat, 10 Oct 2015 08:19:59 +1000
"Keryn has a wonderful work ethic. At all times, she made it clear that my needs, roadblocks, or concerns were a top priority. I appreciate her efforts, attitude, and energy that have been constant throughout this entire process. Moreover, Keryn was excellent in promptly contacting or responding to me in all phases of this process."
