"We have worked with Larissa on multiple properties. Where she stands out, is her incredibly hard work to prepare our house and go above and beyond working with her network of contractors to get the house in ideal shape for sale. She also has an incredible eye for design to stage the house to maximize photos and attraction. We have repeatedly sold our homes for more than expected with her help.
Larissa exemplifies all of the personal characteristics that make working with her a pleasure. Her experience, demeanor and knowledge of the local market takes the stress out of buying/selling because you know she has your best interest in mind."

"Larissa Wilson is by far the best real estate agent I've worked with!"
Kyle Dominick, Seattle, WA (Seller) Thu, 03 Feb 2022 03:45:00 +1000
"Larissa was accessible, knowledgeable and committed to getting our home sold. We certainly weren't the most demanding of sellers, but the house itself needed a lot of work and Larissa was able to see that work through on time and on budget. To add an extra layer of difficulty to our project, we were living overseas during much of the listing process and Larissa was able to work with us without skipping a beat. Larissa's network of contractors was extensive and their work was of high quality. I honestly do not believe that there were many other agents who could have pulled off what she was able to accomplish in the same time frame for the same amount of money. Thank you very much Larissa!"

"Larissa Wilson did a tremendous job for us. After a frustrating initial listing with a different agency, she guided us through a significant number of updates and did above and beyond coordination work to get us to a successful sale. We could not have gotten through this without her support, guidance, and confidence that we would find a buyer."
Walker Aumann, Seattle (Seller) Thu, 15 Jul 2021 04:17:52 +1000
"Larissa took care of everything to sell my home quickly and efficiently. All her communication was pleasant, professional, and reliable. I appreciated her suggestions and willingness to accommodate my specific needs. Her wealth of knowledge and resources helped to quickly fix up my house and present it at it's best for selling. I was able to leave the house in her hands and do most of the selling process remotely. Throughout the entire process, Larissa was on top of every detail. I'm so thankful to have had her help for selling my home!"
Laura Hale, Seattle, WA (Seller) Mon, 24 May 2021 06:19:32 +1000
"We were referred to Larissa by an initial Zillow home listing in December 2020. Although at the time we were not in a hurry to purchase a home, Larissa helped us view multiple listings in the West Seattle area.
We're grateful for Larissa's expertise in the West Seattle area and its neighborhoods, and most of all her tenacity in putting together competitive offers, especially in a sellers' market. Larissa helped explain every step of the process, and was patient with our questions. We relied on Larissa's input and trusted her completely to help us find a home that best met our needs and wants.
We are now first time homeowners, with many thanks and gratefulness to Larissa. We look forward to recommending her to friends and family looking to sell/buy in the future."

"It was a pleasure to work with Larissa. She helped to find and buy my first house. I really appreciate her help and advice during every step. All people that she recommended to me during buying process were high-level specialists. She worked with me even during the Christmas holidays, and we made offer right before New Year. And even in that busy holiday time, she found inspectors to make pre-inspection of the house. She advised me how to make the offer stronger, and we have won against seven other buyers. I will recommend her to my friends. Thank you so much! I am happy that I worked with Larissa!"
Iryna, Burien, WA (Buyer) Wed, 10 Feb 2021 14:06:56 +1000
"Larissa has long transcended from our preferred real estate agent to a member of the family and that relationship helped us secure our dream home. Larissa saw a property on a whim, called us immediately knowing our taste, and we closed a month later. What is more, she helped us identified trusted contractors to work with to do some sprucing up. Could not imagine a better home buying experience. Hard working and always available (too much so)! You would be lucky to have her as your agent!"
Steve and Vanessa (Buyer) Thu, 12 Nov 2020 05:36:29 +1000
"Larissa's combination of strong sales experience, knowledge of our micro neighborhood and design background were the perfect recipe for us. She really helped to showcase the current attributes as well as possibilities of our well maintained 1942 home to prospective buyers. We're convinced that few other realtors could have brought multiple offers to us during our sales period. She's a cool, calm presence who talked us off the ledge more than once. We would recommend Larissa Wilson in a heart beat!"
Jeannie Warner and Debra Duff, Seattle (Seller) Sun, 18 Oct 2020 08:00:26 +1000
"Larissa was straight forward and presented her ideas for the listing very well. I knew with her style of communication we would work well together. I interviewed 5 different agents and she was a shiny diamond.
Larissa was amazing throughout the whole transaction. She communicated well and was very responsive to my needs. Her knowledge of real estate procedures related to the legal documents helped me considerably. I would recommend her to my family and friends with 5 star gold rating.
Selling my childhood home was a difficult transaction. Without Larissa's knowledge, the home might still be for sale. I'm very grateful I choose her to be my agent."
Holly Quin, Seattle, WA (Seller) Thu, 25 Jun 2020 03:55:18 +1000
"You have an excellent team member if you are working with Larissa Wilson! Larissa did a wonderful job of listening to my requirements in searching for my home. I especially appreciated how she catered my experience in response to my 'likes' and 'dislikes' as we actively looked at houses. She was a great at making sure I was informed and comfortable with any questionable aspect of a house and always offered considerations in remediation. I was impressed by her team of inspectors; their reports were thorough and professional. Her knowledge, experience and responsiveness is greatly appreciated in this fast market. I am very happy with my new home. Thank you Larissa!"
Lisa Hong, Seattle (Buyer) Sat, 18 Jan 2020 03:15:36 +1000
"As a first time home buyer I was overwhelmed with decisions I had to make and the enormous amount of information I had to process. Larissa helped me prioritize the details that mattered and patiently worked with me to find the place that fit my needs. The process was less painful that I thought it would be and that is largely due to Larissa's help!"
David Spencer, Mountlake Terrace (Buyer) Mon, 11 Mar 2019 13:07:50 +1000
"When my sister passed away, I needed to sell her house to settle the estate. The house stank from decades of smoking, stained wood floors, and it was pretty run down. Larissa Wilson helped me figure out what to do. Her background in home remodeling and design meant she understood the time frame, costs associated with making improvements. She provided information to make informed decisions. She was able to guide me to contractors and places where I could make affordable improvements with major payoffs. Besides being friendly and super accessible, I figure she saved me a lot of time, heartache and $$$."
Bette Jean Bullert, West Seattle (Seller) Sat, 26 Jan 2019 10:17:40 +1000
"Larissa Wilson was fabulous to work with: professional, knowledgeable, responsive, and a good listener. She also has a background in remodeling and interior design. The property we needed to sell was from an estate. It had been a rental for years. Larissa advised me on which improvements would likely be worth it in terms of the house's sale price, and which upgrades weren't likely to pencil out. In the end, we had a bidding war with an escalation clause. The property sold fast - in 7 days. I'm grateful to my friend who recommended her.
Larissa Wilson was fun to work with. I really appreciated her sense of humor and straight talk. She educated me about the real estate business, cyclical trends and the housing market. I learned a lot so I could make informed decisions.
The process seemed pretty smooth because Larissa is a real pro. She guided me through what needed to be done to position ourselves for success. Very cool.
Larissa sold the house within 7 days, and we had multiple offers.
I found out about Larissa from a friend who had a very positive experience. She raved about Larissa's professionalism and success in selling her house."
BJ Bullert, West Seattle (Seller) Sat, 26 Jan 2019 09:31:55 +1000
"Larissa did a good job arranging staging company that we could afford
She was able to arrange an electrician on short notice for us to hire to fix a wiring problem that could have been a deal breaker if not corrected quickly
She pressured buyer's inexperienced agent as much as she could to see the value in our house as he sided with inexperienced inspector that came up with fixing some items that he incorrectly pointed out ie. new side sewer installed March 2018; city inspector approved and inspector recommended expense of scanning
always a pleasure to work such a professional"
Tom Caspell Seattle Washington (Seller) Mon, 08 Oct 2018 07:09:18 +1000
"Larissa Wilson is excellent at providing personalized service. It is clear she is busy and juggles a wide variety of listings, but what I admired most is she made us feel we mattered. We certainly were not her highest listed property and our property came with challenges, but she made a work plan with us and helped us get everything done. She is not a realtor that will just come stick a sign in your yard and expect a commission. I had been thinking about using Redfin to save some money on commission, but honestly her management of our home showed me why having an accessible realtor is so important. We have no regrets in choosing Larissa as our listing agent and believe her work resulted in a higher than asking price for our home."
Ryan Milburn, Seattle, WA (Seller) Tue, 21 Aug 2018 02:46:32 +1000
"Larissa has exceptional skill in communicating, real-time, with clients. Keen awareness re how to deliver information so a client gets the big picture and feels well informed. Even those with different learning styles.
Larissa' s energy, work ethic, ability to direct or team with others to get the job done on time, willingness to try more strategies in order to reach success: as a seller's agent; buyer's agent; negotiator, whatever, keeps the project in focus."
Shawn Risley, Port Townsend (Buyer) Sat, 05 May 2018 13:44:09 +1000
"Larissa did an excellent job in every aspect of the sale of our house. From picking contractors for remodeling and painting to paint colors Larissa did an excellent job. Larissa also picked out appliances(refrigerator, range), light fixtures, bathroom vanity, mirror and sink/faucet also kitchen sink and faucet, all we're excellent choices! Larissa also did an excellent job in presale staging of the house!
Jeff Chastain, west Seattle (Seller) Fri, 23 Feb 2018 05:16:37 +1000
"Larissa was recommended by a colleague and was very familiar with the region that we were interested in. We moved back to Seattle from Louisiana and Larissa was able to accommodate our needs during our short trips to the area.
Larissa was extremely quick as she spotted our new home the day it went on the market. She walked us through the details for our offer and how we could be the most competitive. In less then 24hrs the house had 3 offers and ours was not even the highest. With Larissa's help we were selected as the most preferred buyers and were able to close quickly and efficiently.
I appreciate everything Larissa did for us and would recommend her to anyone looking for a home in the Seattle area. She was very helpful assisted us in finding, negotiating and closing on our new home. She was also very helpful in finding reliable contractors for alterations well after we closed on the house."
Ray - Burien, WA (Buyer) Sat, 17 Feb 2018 11:19:36 +1000
"We interviewed four agents before selecting Larissa. Two were big-name West Seattle agents, one of which has sold us our first two homes and sold one of our homes. It was a big decision not hiring the agent who we had worked with on three prior transactions. However, we had to do what we felt was right and that was to hire Larissa. We hired Larissa for a number of reasons. We felt that she would take our listing very seriously and give our home the time and attention needed to sell it. Larissa promised us that she would work harder for us than any agent in West Seattle, and she did. Working with Larissa felt like a total collaboration. We had several ideas on marketing our home and she was agreeable to them. She had an open mind and she was creative. In addition to traditional marketing of our home, Larissa used various social media channels. We felt like the marketing of our home was well covered. Larissa is tech-savvy, which is essential in adequately marketing a home today.
Our home was unique. In order to market our home, we needed to get as many brokers through the home as possible. Larissa held several broker open houses that were catered by a popular local bakery. We were pleased at the broker traffic that Larissa was able to generate. She was also generous and creative with her time in holding regular open houses. Our home was located just a couple blocks from a highly rated elementary school. Larissa scheduled several open houses to coincide with the end of the school day to capture school traffic.
Larissa helped us with every aspect of marketing our home, including renovations, painting, carpeting, staging, and inspection contingency removal. She helped us select paint and carpet and even helped replace lights. There was practically nothing that she did not help with. We appreciated her generosity with her time and dedication to selling our home. Selling our home was the largest financial transaction of our lives. We were happy to learn that we hired the perfect agent to help us with this."

"A neighbor let me know that Larissa helped an older couple in the neighborhood prepare their home for sale, that she had an excellent artistic sense, was a results person, and that she represented them well. I am so grateful to the neighbor! Larissa is a well-balanced broker with a huge knowledge base, superior communication skills, durable and efficient problem-solving skills, and the tenacity to provide the driving force for the process. The neighbor specifically suggested Larissa so I did not consult with other Berkshire Hathaway brokers, but compared to 3 other non-BH brokers I'd consulted and almost signed with, Larissa was clearly the best person to represent my interests.
Preparation of the property and advertising were done rapidly and efficiently, with Larissa hiring and managing workers at the site. We had a higher offer from a buyer needing financing and whose buyer's agent was phlegmatic. Yet, she persevered, and the deal closed. A lot of effort on Larissa's part in order that I get the higher priced offer. Larissa's professionalism shielded me from the ups and downs of the process, and I am grateful for her larger view of the process.
I commend your business for providing good customer service. From my experience, customer service from staff at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Northwest Real Estate was positive and efficient."
Shawn Risley, Pacific Northwest (Seller) Tue, 19 Dec 2017 12:32:42 +1000
"It was a blessing to me to have met Larissa Wilson and have her help with this process. In my personal life, the sale and closing worked out just in time to allow me to retire a little earlier than previously anticipated, but very timely as it turns out. She was vital in helping to keep me on track to finally list the house.
She came to my house after finishing up showing the house down the street, as I'd invited, and we talked for a quite a while. She showed great interest in my little home, was personally very pleasant, knowledgeable, and helpful. She expressed interest in staging and said she would be able to do that herself and could use many of my personal items and minimal rental items, she had contact with workers who could help finish up, and she was even able to come help pack up my house, even working there while I was at work, which was a huge help. She had a good idea of how to price in this market for a successful sale. She was hand on for the two-three weeks before showing, always available either in person or by phone/email, and has continued to be accessible for ongoing questions, even after sale and closing.
Excellent work. Photos of the property were beautiful, the online and flyer advertising were especially nice.
Very helpful, personable, knowledgeable, approachable and especially accessible throughout this whole process."

"I have been in sales for 10+ years and couldn't be happier with our experience with Larissa!"
Jeffrey Michael Sirochman II Seattle (Buyer) Tue, 11 Apr 2017 07:19:25 +1000
"We have now worked with Larissa with three separate transactions that all concluded with better than expected results! Larissa is more than an agent, but has become a part of our family and has taken great care us. She is so patient, thoughtful and always puts her clients needs before her own. Could not recommend her enough!"
Steve and Vanessa, West Seattle (Seller) Sat, 01 Oct 2016 02:55:01 +1000
"Larissa was very knowledgeable about the local buying conditions and helped us tremendously with a difficult and very competitive market. Her advice and guidance was critical and essential in getting us a property we loved"
