Would highly recommend
I felt she considered my best outcome."

COLIN MCCABErecommended by Seller view agent's profile
"Easily an 11 out of 10 for Colin in all categories here. That is not a typo. 11 out of 10, making Colin 110% amazing.
We have worked with Colin in the past. Prior to the sale of our property in Seattle, Colin was simply instrumental in working hard to get us into our new home. He worked from early mornings, to late evenings, and even on his personal time off away from work. Colin worked it! Truly thankful.
It is easy for us to highly recommend Colin McCabe to be our realtor. You are going to be partnered with a hard working realtor, that knows the ins and outs of the market. He know how to work because that's all he does.
Colin will make you feel comfortable, educate you about the area you are looking at living or selling, and he will work to exceed your expectations."

Ron was fantastic."

When we went to showings my husband wasn't able to make it and Tanya still met with me and she really knew what to look for and what to notice. Little things that I wouldn't have.
She was always responsive. We would find a home and she would respond to go look at it the next day.
We closed on our first home purchase in 31 days. Tanya was on top of it all, our paperwork, what we needed, due dates of things.
I 100% would recommend Tanya to family and friends. In fact we already have !"

Nesha Robertsonrecommended by Buyer view agent's profile
"Nesha got this deal done. From initial property walk through in May to closing in October she was crucial in making this happen.
When the deal fell through the second time she went to a different lender who found out why the HOA dues were underfunded and it turns out was only 6% and not 19%.
Because if Nesha I now am a very happy owner.
Yay for her.

"Calvin Mark and Tami Miller quickly became more than just our realtors. They became our trusted confidants and sage guides. We trusted them unwaveringly and we knew they had our backs no matter what. They truly cared about us, what we wanted in a home, and worked several weekends putting together last minute tours.
The Seattle real-estate market is competitive and filled with constant highs and lows, but Tami and Calvin bring more joy to the experience than I could have imagined.
They are two people we'll forever be grateful for, and we'd love to have dinner with after purchasing our home - can you say that about your realtors? If not, you should find new ones."

Colin Mccabe will always educate you with little tidbits about the process so that you don't feel lost or confused. He makes things extremely easy to understand.
Most importantly, Colin is extremely easy to reach. No matter what time of day, he will reach out to you if you have any questions. Very timely in response.
Colin is honest with his feedback and keeps working hard towards finding your HOME.
Luckily for us, Colin knocked it out the park!
It is easy to recommend Colin to all friends, family, and people who simply speak about looking into purchasing a home. Colin will give all of his clients 1000% and more every time!"

"Tayna Lorella was a fantastic buyer's agent! My fiancee and I were moving from Bellingham to the Seattle area and met her at an open house months before we were committed to the move. Not only did she remember us from that single interaction months prior, she quickly understood our needs and was always there to point us in the right direction. She has deep knowledge of the area and passed on some great recommendations from contractors, to inspectors, to loan officers. Tayna's willingness to work with our schedule (mostly involving evening and all-day Saturday showings since we had to drive down) and responsiveness via phone, text, and email made relocating a breeze! Thanks Tayna!!"

"We wanted a real estate agent who we knew and trusted.
Maura went above and beyond in multiple areas of listing and selling our home. She felt like a true partner in our success every step of the way. Marketing the home, she set up professional photography and staging - both helped to put our home in the best possible light.
Handling contracts and keeping on top of deadlines, she ensured a smooth transaction.
We were out of the area, so when issues came up that required someone on-site, Maura didn't hesitate to check on the house, take care of issues, or meet with contractors
Maura is a consummate real estate professional. If we had questions, she responded promptly, clearly, and thoroughly. She also made the whole process enjoyable and just plain fun (as much as selling a home can be!)."

We appreciated her honesty and attention to detail when viewing houses and for asking the seller agents the good questions we would have never thought to ask. She was in no way trying to just sell a house but wanted us to buy a house that was right for us. She is extremely friendly and easy to talk to and was a great communicator over email and the phone. We always felt that Nalani had our best interest at heart and would highly recommend her."

"There was a point where she and I had a slight disagreement, and we were able to solve it amicably. And then we just went forward in a great professional relationship. She was personally extremely helpful in arranging for cleaning and minor repairs. Went over and above what any other realtor has for us. Very helpful and willing to physically work getting our place cleaned. We were out of town, living 115 miles away, during the 30 days waiting for escrow to close. We couldn't have been more pleased. Her help reduced our level of stress immensely!"

"Caren was very considerate and helpful. Presented us with comparative listings of all the properties in the neighborhood in advance. Devoted a lot of her time into preparation for us.
Caren went above and beyond with her sales efforts, to satisfy both us and the buyer. The house was sold on the first viewing, obtaining an offer well above the market price, which she says was a record for her, and it was a blessing for us to have the property sold so fast!
Again, Caren went out of her way to make sure that everything for selling the house was prepared correctly, including voluntarily installing weather coverings on outside pipes, cleaning the yard and house, painting the driveway and making other arrangements to ensure everything was performed properly and to obtain an excellent sales price. In addition, overseeing an excellent staging. Also, since we were remotely located, she made sure to guide us through all the escrow procedures smoothly providing instructions on every step to help us complete the signing smoothly. I (we) would highly recommend that anyone we know selling house or buying a house to go through Caren as she goes out of her way to ensure that everything related to the sale of the property goes smoothly. Caren receives a five star rating in our evaluation!
Caren was excellent in every aspect. We wouldn't know how to rate her sales performance and assistance in any other way.
The overall service of everyone involved was great!"

In the setting of a global pandemic, site unseen, first time homebuyers Maria was able to navigate all of these complexities with grace and support. As buyers living 3000 miles away from Seattle we heavily relied on video and electronic communication. Maria was quick to respond with replies, new information and often times video tours personalized to us within 24 hours. She was referred to us by a family member who recommended her highly based on her integrity, work ethic and trustworthiness. We were able to find our dream home and we couldn’t be happier.

I would work with her again without a doubt and in fact I have started recommending her to my contacts.
If you want to have an smooth, friendly and expedited process, Maria Sotelo is the agent you need!"

BROOKE BUXTONrecommended by Buyer view agent's profile
"I was truly blessed. It just started off as a conversation and next thing I knew was I was looking at condos. I never considered working with anyone else.
Brooke was definitely first rate on turning things around and keeping me informed. Especially with the COVID-19 causing difficulty for the lender and escrow and financial transactions in general.
Brooke is in a class by herself. She exemplifies hard work, professionalism, and fun.
Brooke made the whole thing so easy. I couldn't have asked for a better experience or a better agent. ❤❤"

"We loved working with Callie! She is so knowledgeable, patient, and such a great support through the entire process. The home buying process can be intimidating, especially as a first time buyer. Callie kept us informed and up to date on everything that was going on and we appreciate her answering all our questions (even if we asked the same one more than once). She was always positive and even when we kept going back and forth on what our dream home was, she went with it and never made us feel like a burden. We can’t thank Callie enough! She’s the best and we highly recommend her!"

"We never even met Maura personally, but chose her over 4 realtors we had met when originally listing our home. After 6 months working with another realtor with little activity, we were needing to get our home sold, now from another state. A friend highly recommended Maura and Susan, and after speaking with them on the phone, we really felt they worked to understand our needs and concerns. Always responsive, it was so easy to work with them. After sitting 6 months with another realtor, we had multiple offers above the same listing price after 2 days! The staging was incredible, the service, fantastic.
A wonderful experience. Maura listened to what frustrated us about our experience with our initial realtor and worked hard to ensure we were constantly informed, and answered as many questions as we needed without making us feel rushed. Our buyers threw several curve balls, many at the last minute, all of which were handled effectively and with our best interest at heart. Maura was an excellent negotiator; she let us lead and never pressured us into giving in where we otherwise felt strongly. Highly recommend."

Calvin Markrecommended by Seller view agent's profile
"I purchased the home I sold 7 years ago with Calvin Mark,and I am in the process of purchasing my next home with Calvin. Based on my experience when I purchased my first house with Calvin there was no reason for me to even think about using another agent. Calvin, is very attentive and personable, he helped my wife and I navigate through the process of selling our first home and was very patient as we asked a lot of questions. I would work with Calvin again in the future for both my home buying and selling needs."

"Diane was essential to our process in that she served as our "backup agent" during a brief period when our primary agent was not available.
Diane stepped in to assist during the final phase of closing and did a wonderful job in supporting us and making resources available - i.e., notary services in the local field office, and readily available to receive questions.
The hand-off and back-up between our primary agent and Diane was seamless and deeply appreciated by us.
Diane is special."

"Tamara is a true professional ... always felt like she had our best interests at heart ... and she "delivered" to goods and continues to support us in our transition.
As stated - we could not be more pleased with both processes - the acquisition of our new "forever home" and the sale of our condo. The whole experience went perfectly and was painless ... felt at each step that we had made the right decision - at the right time - with the Right Team.
So grateful to Tamara."

"I've worked with many real estate brokers over the course of my life. I'm happy to say they've all been fairly good. Then I had the pleasure to work with Colin Mccabe. I now clearly understand what the definition of what a great agent is.
I had a unique set of features I was looking for with a hard cap on price. Basically I asked him to find me a unicorn in today's market which we is extremely difficult. Colin never considered giving up, not for a second. He expanded searches, spoke to his contacts and took the time to drive me all over the greater Seattle and Tacoma areas.
His knowledge and experience equally match his shining personality. He's high energy, not high pressure. He takes as much stress off of his buyer/seller as humanly possible, which is a big deal.
During the entire process he kept in contact with me at all times. Most notably he isn't the kind of guy to just push a house onto you. We saw a few where he flat out said this price is too high, or this has too many unknowns.
It's absolutely refreshing because a lot of agents see a sale before honestly considering the long term satisfaction of the buyer. Colin truly wants you to be happy. Imagine buying a car where the salesperson 100% had your best interests in mind. Think about how rare that is! Now apply it to a decision as important as a house. That’s what he delivers. This is not only a testament to Colin but also to Berkshire Hathaway. I've worked with two of their agents in the past year and both went well past exceeding my expectations."

"Our initial contact with CALVIN MARK resulted from a personal recommendation, but after our first face-to-face meeting with him, both my wife and I felt extremely comfortable that CALVIN MARK both understood and respected our goals, priorities and preferences and was working very hard from the very beginning to create a process that would work well for us and result in an outcome with which we'd be satisfied. That that's exactly how things turned out.
There really wasn't any aspect of our experience with CALVIN MARK where I wouldn't give him top marks. Never disappointing, always meeting or exceeding our needs and expectations, CALVIN'S WORK with us was exceptional. We really appreciated the balance of his being direct and open with us while always being sensitive and considerate.
Regarding the specific aspects of our process - Deposit money/escrow: Clear, easy, no problems; Negotiating price and terms: very open discussions, always felt "informed" of how things were going, understood our priorities and preferences; Local knowledge: we got very good pointers from Calvin on the pro's and con's of various neighborhoods and areas we were considering; Inspections/Open Houses: very helpful in setting up a hassle-free, reasonably priced inspection that executed on time and provided meaningful results; Attention to detail: Exceptional - always felt we were well informed and always on a timely basis. Never felt like something was missed. The exchange of contracts and closing: On time, easy, stress free, much simpler than we expected it to be. We ended up in a home we love, in an area we love, and all at a prices that was perfect for our goals. Outstanding!!!"

Tamara was on top of everything that needed to be done and would respond to any questions I had right away. She was very knowledgeable when showing me different homes, pointing out important things to take note of.

He has an incredible way of explaining everything to me, making sure I understand, and most importantly, making sure I'm comfortable throughout the entire process and we're both always on the same page.

Extremely knowledgeable and unmatched professionalism, I will always, highly, recommend Mr. Phillips."

"Jessica Jee was very much appreciated when it came to finding and making an offer on my Condo by the locks. IT WAS HARD FOR ME TO DECIDE WHERE TO LIVE, SINCE I HAVE FAMILY
ALL OVER THE AREA. Jessica did it. Found the perfect spot. Made recommendations on a good solid offer that was excepted. This was, by the way
lot lower than the appraisal, I found out later, and was so pleased. I haven't moved in yet, but am more excited every time I am there.
I WILL CALL Jessica Jee again if I am in the market for another home or sell my house."

"Samantha Teson was very helpful to me. I had not moved since I moved into my house which was 47 years previously and the information I needed to get my house ready for sale was a mystery which both Samantha and Jessica helped me to unravel. I really appreciate the knowledge and the direction that was given, often with a smile and a sense of friendship and not the same pushiness that had come with the other realtors who seemed to me to be "salesmen" trying to get the house sold for the least effort and greatest price. I would recommend Samantha any day."

"We chose Diane Grim because we had friends who had used her for the purchase of a home and they had only wonderful things to say about her and her professionalism and hard work on their behalf.
Diane Grim was amazingly helpful to us in the purchase of our vacation home as she was able to remain calm, cool, and collected in a very back and forth situation where emotions got high as we negotiated the final price. She was a dream to work with, kind, encouraging, thoughtful, and tough!
Diane Grim embodies all the characteristics of an exceptional real estate agent. She listens, works hard, has excellent customer service skills to be able to speak with and work with a vastly divergent group of other agents, inspectors, handymen, and homeowners, yet always remains calm, polite, and sharp as a tack, but aggressive and assertive when warranted.
All of the agents and people we worked with along side Diane Grim were professional, kind, understanding, hard working and wonderful to work with. I would highly recommend Diane and everyone else at Berkshire Hathaway.
Again, the experience working with Diane Grim was excellent from start to finish. She is the utmost professional, who is hard working, polite, a great listener, and someone I would easily recommend again and again to anyone looking for an agent to help them purchase property. I cannot thank her enough for all of the time, dedication to the search, and effort she put into helping us find our dream vacation home."

The staging of the home, open house, negotiations and paperwork were all wonderfully handled.

We will definitely recommend her to others and will use her services again when we purchase our next home."
