"Dayna is an expert broker. Very smart, creative, hard worker and stays on top of the transaction.
She reads all documents and watches out for her clients. IE she caught two items that were significant which saved me several thousand dollars.
Highly recommend her!"
Britt Slone (Seller) Wed, 06 Jan 2021 06:46:26 +1000
"Dayna is able to share her knowledge in a very useful and friendly matter. Dayna had my back every step of the way and is still there after the sell. Dayna has shared that I can still call her if I have any questions or concerns well after the sell is complete!
Wonderful customer service and VIP treatment!"

"Ruta is a very knowledgeable and passionate Reel Estate Agent that will work to get you the home you want! She is a great pleasure to work with and communicates regularly to ensure you are up to date with the process and always making sure you are aware and comfortable with the current and coming actions during the home buying process. She also advocates for her clients to get them the best deal she can and close on your home on time."

"As an experienced agent Nina Thornsburg is knowledgable about the local real estate market and took time to explain the process and what to expect within our price range and the location we were interested in. As first-time buyers she was excellent to work with throughout the buying process, as she was responsive and was able to advise us on our options while remaining a neutral party. Nina was able to answer our questions and always directed us to the proper resource if the question was outside her legal scope as a realtor. She helped us go through the process of purchasing our first home feeling confident and prepared. We recommend Nina to anyone looking, especially first-time buyers who want someone that will take the time to address any concerns and answer questions to help you feel comfortable throughout the process."

"We were out-of-state sellers. It was important for the sale to go fast and smoothly. We also very much wanted to find a buyer who valued all my mom’s touches. Diana staged the house, arranged repairs and made the house sparkle. The house sold in 5 days and closed in 30 days to a lovely couple."

Meredith, Seattle (Buyer) Wed, 09 Dec 2020 03:09:33 +1000
"Nina was with me all the way. I liked her when she listed my rental house. I had a long time agent with Windermere Commercial who retired after many offers that ultimately fell through. Nina is easy to talk with about my questions and concerns. She always kept me updated about the progress of this difficult and complex piece of land that kept getting more and more restrictions from the City of Bothell."

Melissa Jacksonrecommended by Buyer view agent's profile
"We knew that local knowledge would be vital in our home search as we were not very familiar with the area. Melissa showed us that she knows the area well. We had some critical requirements in our home search, and she listened well to us. Our loan pre-approval process was a bit complicated, and Melissa worked with our mortgage broker to make sure she understood the terms of our somewhat unusual loan. We could not ask for a more professional, friendly and helpful person! We will absolutely recommend Melissa Jackson to friends who might be looking for a broker on the Eastside."
Sonja, Kirkland (Buyer) Fri, 04 Dec 2020 04:26:50 +1000
"My wife and I (Ruby and Rudie) liked it very much working as a team with Ruta. Ruta was also our agent in 2012 when we bought our first house in Newcastle WA. Thank you again Ruta!!"

"We highly recommend Andrea. She has a profound knowledge of the real estate market. Her hard work and knowledge of what it takes to sell our house really paid off - our listing was a standout...the ad was very well-written and concise, We got an offer on the first day the house was put on the market. Subsequent offers followed.
In addition to Andrea’s above expertise, her warm, invariably courteous, gentle, positive demeanor greatly influenced our decision to work with her. We couldn’t have asked for a better seller agent than what we’ve already got."

Heidi Drakerecommended by Seller view agent's profile
"Heidi knows the market and gets it done for her clients. She got us several offers over asking within a day of listing. Then she stayed with us through the close, making sure everything got taken care of, even when it wasn't her responsibility (for example, making sure escrow and the buyer's bank did their jobs in a timely fashion). We'd work with her again anytime!"

"Andrea helped us through the entire process of making the offer and getting acceptance. She acted quickly to help us get acceptance even when someone had beaten our offer. She made the entire process easy for us.
Andrea was amazing! She did a great job helping us strategize the offer and orchestrating all the communication. She was available quickly to help us tour about 8 houses before we found the right one. She and Zach were so helpful and we’re very happy we found her to help us in the process.
She was also extremely helpful during the closing process, escalating issues with the lender when communication from them was poor."

"Dayna was an absolute pleasure to work with. She came to know us well, made some excellent suggestions for properties we would be interested in in the area we wanted to be in, and kept us on course through the entire process even when the sale and life threw us some curveballs. I'd absolutely recommend her, especially to first time homebuyers."
Steve Cooper, Shoreline (Buyer) Tue, 04 Aug 2020 01:16:58 +1000
"We just wanted someone who was knowledgeable with the market and competitive with our offerings to the other agent. Helen was the best we’ve ever worked with!
Helen is thorough with her work and was always prepared with the information needed when attending open houses. She was in immediate contact if we needed her and provided so much detail that we were always in the loop. Her best asset was her follow ups and making note of all our concerns and questions. We felt she always had our best interest which is important since you’re going through a tedious and personal process.
Helen was OUTSTANDING and would recommend her to anyone we know.
Same as previous comment- Helen is the definition of a professional agent/ broker. I wouldn’t be surprised if she isn’t one of your top performing agents. She was polite, professional and had no judgements to any of our questions or interests. She always guided us to our house potential.
Super thoughtful and so grateful we were paired with Helen ."

"May is very patient, experienced and thorough. She’s able to understand my wants and needs within the first couple of showings.

"I used Ruta for the purchase of the home several years ago and was impressed. It only seemed appropriate to use her again for the sale of that house, and the purchase of a new one.
Sellling a home in the middle of Covid-19 was difficult enough, but it went very smooth using Ruta and allowing her to navigate."

"Dayna Mink-Coats did a fantastic job as my real estate agent. She was prompt, clear, and thorough in all possible ways. She quickly determined the needs I had in a new home and was easy to work with to tour and select the properties. During the sale she prevented problems before they could arise, she kept me aware of all the actions to take place, and was in frequent communication. I will fully recommend Dayna for anyone needing an agent."

"Diana is one of the finest real estate agents you will find. She is exceptionally knowledgeable and her and her husband Bill have gone above and beyond to not just help me with this purchase but she has helped a multitude of our friends get their first houses as well and they would all agree that she goes well above and beyond any realistic expectations. She literally helped us negotiate and reach an agreement on our current home on extremely short notice while she was on vacation in Mexico and she still got the tough negotiations and back and forth with the seller done so we did not lose out on the home we wanted. I would be extremely surprised if anyone else could have gotten this done under such challenging circumstances. She is simply the best."

"We have sold and purchased many properties and, by far Dayna has been the most outstanding agent we've had. She was critical is helping us purchase a new home while selling our previous home. Without her strategic advice we would not have been successful with our offer - she was amazing at getting our offer accepted. On the selling side of our transaction, she far exceeded our expectations by getting the house sold quickly and far over list price! She has incredible energy, she is on the spot for any issue that arises (and they always do), has a wonderful personality that works with everyone, and simply knows how to get these deals done! She was right there with us from the initial meetings right through the closing sessions handling anything and everything. I highly recommend Dayna to anyone purchasing or selling - she is fantastic!"

"Dayna was super helpful throughout the whole process of my home purchase. Being a first-time homeowner I had a lot of questions since there so many steps to the process but Dayna was extremely patient and helped me navigate through all the steps with ease! I had provided Dayna with some critical requirements for my home and she made sure to find places that met those requirements and also made sure to keep reminding me of those requirements. Dayna helped negotiate with the seller and we got the home for a lower price than the listing price which is rare in Seattle's competitive market. With Dayna's help, we were able to submit an offer and close successfully within 3 weeks. Last but not least, Dayna was very sweet to leave a gift basket and provide carpet cleaning services as a gift after my closing :)
Dayna is awesome and would highly recommend her."

Taylor S, Renton (Buyer) Tue, 04 Feb 2020 14:01:52 +1000
"Nina Thornsburg found a commercial developer who was interested in our house lot, and we signed a contract with them early, as we awaited zonal changes with the city to finalize the deal. Nina was very competent and on top of the situation, always timely with letting us know the sequence of what needed to be done. Since it was a complicated contract arrangement with a developer, she always dealt with them and answered our questions. She is very energetic and friendly, and went with us down to Tacoma to find another house to buy, always making herself available to see houses and give advice. We'd recommend Nina in a moment to anyone looking to work with a superb real estate agent."

"We have worked with Pam Paris for years. She sold us our first house, putting up with us looking for the perfect home for almost a year. Pam helped my Mom buy and sell in the area even though it was a small retirement home. And now she sold our current home in less than a week for full price. Pam has always been there to answer questions and help us navigate the real estate world. Patient, trustworthy, and someone I consider a friend, I wouldn't buy or sell a house without talking to Pam Paris."

Not only did she help me find a stellar investment property, as an owner of multiple properties herself, she was able to give me tips on how to successfully manage the property after the purchase. It was also extremely helpful to have her critical eye as an investor during our search for a property."

"BECU suggested Carleen Plodinec and Berkshire Hathaway to us. Carleen contacted us within 24 hrs of BECU referring us to her. It was like a match made in Heaven. Carleen listened to what we needed, prepared several homes she thought fit our criteria. Took us out to look, didn't try to push anything at us. Answered our questions honestly and as well as she could. Once we made our choice, she did her best to guide us in what was customary in the negotiation process. When the seller was requesting us to agree to pay more if the appraisal came back lower than the sale price, she advised us not to. Then when the seller contacted me directly via email, she notified the selling agent and they quickly told him that was not appropriate. We ht a few snags along the way and Carleen quickly advised us and worked with the selling agent to smooth it out. Carleen went all out for us and we are truly grateful for her efforts.
Carkeen is top notch. She was in constant contact throughout the transaction.
I cannot say enough good things about Carleen. She was a joy to work with.
Carleen made the whole process very easy. Even with a difficult seller, she went to bat for us and came through. We are completely satisfied with the service and personal care Carleen gave us."

"Dayna Mink-Coats was prompt contacting me after we met to follow up on getting my parcel on the market. She was readily available and punctual to see the property. Dayna Mink-Coats was excellent with advice on setting the sale price. She had already prepared a breakdown of other similar properties in the area that were on the market and included properties that had sold with their listing and sale price. Providing this information and with her advice, I was able to set the asking price with confidence. She had the property listed quickly, informing me immediately. She followed up with every inquiry and offer, helping me to determine the counter offer without any doubts. Dayna Mink-Coats interaction/communication with the other realtors involved was excellent.
There were no problemsI with the sale, and I sold the property for more than I originally had thought I would. I had procrastinated putting my property on the market. I am really thankful we met through my son and daughter-in-law’s first home purchase. The offers came in so fast, I was amazed. Getting through the details of closing were complicated for me, but she was able to understand and navigate each step of the way. I highly recommend Dayna Mink-Coats for the sale of property or homes. She is personable and very professional at the same time."

"We initally were introduced to Dayna through our Equity rental. We told that if we went through Berkshire they would break our lease for us. This gave us flexibility with timing when looking for a home. We didn't have to wait until our lease ended or incur fee when we found our perfect home. When I initially met Dayna I knew she would be the right agent for us. She never pressured us in anyway, gave us time to think things through.
We had an amazing experience working with Dayna. She was very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. She gave us pointers and things to look out for during our home search. Whenever we had questions she responded right away either via phone call, e-mail or text. We knew we were in good hands.
After a few weeks of hunting we went back to a couple of the houses that were in the running. We finished look at homes at 2pm on our last day of touring and decided to make an offer on our home. The offer review was at 4pm that same day. Dayna rushed off to a cafe and got our offer letter together very quickly. She worked with the seller's agent to buy us a little more time to get everything together. 7pm that same evening our offer was accepted. She called us right away. Everything was so easy, we were shocked (since this was our first time buying a home).
My mother in law is already in touch with Dayna to sell some plot of land and potentially to sell her current home. We highly recommend Dayna to potential buyers & sells."

Since I had been travelling outside the country, the documents and information were strictly done through e-signage, making it easy in completing all the documents.
May Wan coordinated, led the maintenance crews prior to putting the house for sales to the top notch conditions. She personally ensured the staging with high professional flare at the most cost effective way."

She was patient with is and answered all the questions knowledgeably. This was our first homebuying experience and because of Roberta it was a breeze. There are no questions about who we will return to when it comes time to move. We have already been recommending her to anyone who will be house hunting soon. Roberta was a true pleasure to work with."

"Sean MacDonald was readily available to us every step of the way in our home buying journey and made the process feel like a breeze. He was always prompt in returning calls and texts and we honestly could not have asked for a better agent. Knowing we can trust Sean with such a big decision is paramount for us. We will absolutely be using his services in the future and recommending to our friends as well."

"My family and I were moving from out of state. Had a general idea of what we wanted, but it was a significantly different market than we were accustomed to. Diana knew the area very well, helped guide us on the key things we should know, and was very straightforward with her analysis of properties we were considering, giving her honest opinion on whether she thought it would be the type of place we would be happy with long term. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking in the greater Seattle area!"

"If you are buying or selling a house Diana is the agent you want for the best result and experience. I’ve owned 16 homes. I’ve hhad many buying and selling agents through the years. None of them came even close to the care and attention she gave me throughout the entire process. I basically just relaxed the entire time. Diana did EVERYTHING! You can be confident you will be in good hands with Diana and, as a bonus, she is a delightful person. I would recommend her to all my family and friends. Easiest buy AND sale I’ve ever had."

"Mrs. Guidrey protected my interests in the sale of the property by being a TECHNICAL TACTICIAN By:
1. Ensuring that the Buyers were properly loan qualified for this size of a property sale.
2. Ensuring that a sub-par appraisal did not negate the sale.
3. Ensuring that an inspection was not required.
Her Resume showed that she had the training and knowledge to be the kind of representative that I felt I needed.
She was an excellent representative of my ideas in the negotiations with the buyers and in the presentation of my counter-offer(impressive)."

"Diana has sold two homes for us personally. Additionally she sold my fathers home, and my sisters home. She's done an excellent job all four times!
Diana is extremely professional. She knows what buyers are looking for and takes the time to help get the house to the best condition to receive the best offer. In our case, several offers!
Diana's help with staging was invaluable. She showed us how to use our own furnishings and decor to better appeal to all buyers. For the rooms we had already emptied, Diana had furnishings to define the spaces. Diana's suggestion to remove the rugs to highlight the wood floors was the best suggestion - ever. We may never cover our hardwoods again!"

"The home buying process it's quite the endeavor to undertake. For someone who has never bought a home, I consider it to be a daunting experience and most of the time we would rather just rent, rather than face it. I had a lot of friends in the area when I moved up here that informed me that their rent was going up by $200-$300 every time they would renew their lease. I wasn't exactly excited about taking part in such forms of extortion. Individuals who rent their property in the Seattle area know that buying a home can be a crippling experience. With that knowledge they charge people who rent from them pretty much whatever they want, and they're able to get away with it. It's simple supply and demand.
Going into the home buying process I was quite eerie about the steps that needed to be taken. I have always had a good experience going through my union at work for things, so the recommendation that I go through Roberta to buy a home wasn't a difficult decision to make… It was just a matter of whether or not I wanted to put up with the whole process or not.
I'm glad that I did.
For me, and being a veteran, I preferred someone was is familiar with utilizing the VA loan. Roberto was extremely knowledgeable in this. She was quite familiar with what I needed to do long before I needed to do it. As a first-time homebuyer it's a little bit nerve-racking to take on such a large debt. The only thing I would have done differently was not in her control. I preferred a residential property so that I could accrue more equity, but the reality is that Seattle is just too expensive. As a result, I settled for a condo, but I still was able to get everything that I wanted in a home. Thanks for the time and patience of Roberta, I am now a proud homeowner. There isn't any one thing that I can say she did better than the others; she executed everything with precision and efficiency.
I can shamelessly admit that I would have rented a place had it not been for her. If it were any other realtor, I don't believe I would've gotten the confidence that Roberta provided me. She is really good about not just throwing a bunch of information at you. She waits until you have questions, and then answers all of those questions. I will admit, it's nice to have someone do everything for you, but when it comes to buying a home it is important that someone asks those questions for themselves. It is the responsibility, but it was the responsibility that I gladly took on.
My favorite part of that my mortgage is going to suddenly rise by $200-$300, like rent would. I have a place of my own where I get to pick the paint, appliances, furniture, the floors, the windows, the doors… I can rest a little bit easier knowing that my payments for housing will only get cheaper over time. This isn't typically the most admired fact about buying a home, but in the Seattle area it is a crucial point to think about.
I will be selling my condo through Roberta if/when that time comes..."

"We starting working with Diana in December of 2017. At that time we were only looking at homes, as we were in the process of selling our home in California. Diana was very accommodating and knowledgeable. Diana was patient and when ever we had any questions she was available to meet with us and talk it through. I would highly recommend Diana MacDonald to my family and friends."

"Heidi did an amazing job with all her research of the communities we were looking at. She gave pros/cons which ultimately narrowed down our search and led to our first purchase. She had great knowledge of the the area we were looking at as well as surrounding neighborhoods. She also had great knowledge of the quality of home/hardwood/carpets/structure etc of the homes we looked at. She understood our plans/future plans and gave us a lot of information about what we should look for in the kind of house that we need. Price and negotiation were on point and never thought it would be easy on our end. She was quick and worked hard for us which we really appreciate. Open house and inspection was great to have her there as she kept me informed of each step of the process.
Everything about Heidi is great. We are so lucky to have used her in our first home purchase. She made the process very easy, inviting, and very calm throughout the whole deal. Her knowledge of real estate and her customer service is top notch/Best in class! Anyone that is looking for a home, i will refer them to Heidi Drake. Thank you so much!"

"We had conversations with Pam Paris twice when we were considering selling our home (but decided against doing so). We liked her approach, her obvious knowledge of the area, her patience with us.
Pam was on top of every detail from the time we said "yes" to her until the deal closed earlier this week. We couldn't be more satisfied with the job she did for us."

She is an amazing, caring and realist agent. She never over promised anything and was very concise on all her communications and keeping in calm state when we originally lost a sale. Next time I am on market to purchase she will be the first i call."

"Diana McDonald did a fantastic job helping us buy our first house. We were referred to Diana by a close friend who worked with her multiple times. Diana was patient with us while we narrowed down what we were looking for in a house as first time home buyers. Though the process of finding our house was long due to the current market, I never questioned her competence or dedication. She was always available to show us any house we wanted to see which often involved accomadating my night shift schedule. Our closing was seamless and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to find their perfect house."

MARK LEINGANGrecommended by Seller view agent's profile
"Mark is very knowledgeable in the market and created a frenzy among agents and created a bidding war netting us $96,000 more than asking price.
Mark worked all hours of the day to put multiple offers together. He was always available via text or phone. I could not be more pleased. We live out of state and Mark took care of everything for us. He made it very easy for us and sold our property in less than a week.
I would not hesitate in using Mark again or recommending him to anyone."

She would often drop everything to verify I didn't miss out on seeing a house. She was always quick with responding and most importantly, she is trustworthy.

"Andrea....has basically turned into family....we love her dearly and would recommend and have told everyone we know how wonderful she is!!! She makes things happen and goes beyond even the extra mile and does whatever it takes!!! She is just an amazing agent and would use her again in the future!!! She sold our house in Bonney Lake within 7 days!! And worked hard to get what we needed even dealing with a local agent who wasn't very nice to her. She dealt with her with grace and ease...to us, Andrea's integrity shows in all that she does and touches!! She has such a giving heart and spirit...she is just truly an amazing person...not many like her!! She deserves every award in the company and we will forever use Berkshire-Hathaway in the future!! Love this company and the people who work with Andrea are just amazing (especially my future daughter-in-law, Alexis Fries) but the Bellevue office we just love visiting and everyone is so very nice and personable. Loved even meeting Mary?, the manager. An extremely good experience!!! Cathy Tix
We are sold on Andrea....and using Berkshire-Hathaway forever in the future!! Andrea was just amazing and the company is and has met above our expectations!!!
Andrea is just an amazing person and goes above and beyond every single one of the descriptions above. And I mean above!! Even when she was on holiday in England....I got phone calls reassuring me situations!! Our whole family has grown attached to her and we consider her family now...she is just the best person we have met who is so "real" and "gets us" that we won't let her go!! She is just amazing!!"

Gary Kwongrecommended by Seller view agent's profile
"We were on a tight schedule and Gary Kwong was able to come out to the home within a short period of time after calling him. He was very nice and understanding of our situation.
Gary Kwong took pictures to accentuate the homes best features. He made signing the contracts very easy for me since I live in CA.
As you can see on my ratings...Gary Kwong was excellent in all of the above. He was always available via text, phone or email. He answered all my questions within a very short period of time after receiving them.
My experience with Gary Kwong was very pleasant. He was very nice and professional from the beginning to the end. He's a good guy."
