Bought a Single Family home in 2016 in Rainier View, Seattle, WA.
“Yvonne is incredible!
My husband and I were referred to Yvonne by my company’s relocation service to help us find a rental when we moved to Seattle from Los Angeles. From the beginning, Yvonne was open, communicative, and available at any time of the day to talk–even while she was on vacation! Once we gave her the type of space we were looking for (a short-term, furnished apt in Capitol Hill), Yvonne sent us several options that met our parameters and our budget within 24 hours! When we decided which apt to pursue, Yvonne went to the apt and did a virtual tour for us (as we were still in LA) and made the initial connections with the Landlord. Everything went very smooth, thanks to all of the planning and work that Yvonne had done. As soon as we moved to Seattle, we wanted to buy a house. We had an intense, self-imposed deadline to make an offer within a week. Knowing Yvonne was a realtor, we asked for her help. She was very flexible and open to helping meet our quick timeline. Together we went to see around 15 houses in 3 days! She was so on top of it, sending us listings that met our criteria, neighborhood, and budget. Yvonne is very knowledgeable about the Seattle area and what it take to purchase a home in today’s current market. We found a house and made our first offer within a week. We really leaned on Yvonne’s experience and expertise on how to approach it. She recommended an aggressive, competitive offer and she completely respected out maximum budget as well. We asked for Yvonne’s recommendation for a lender to work with–who was phenomenal. Throughout the offer submission process, Yvonne and her colleague, Kim, were very communicative, emailing us with any new update. Yvonne was always available to text, call, or email, and responded immediately to our questions. She also explained everything in a very clear way. While we didn’t get this first house, it was a great learning experience. Yvonne called us as soon as she knew the result. She is so supportive and recognizes how gut wrenching the process can be. The next day, we were back on the saddle, looking at more houses! We made a second offer in the next week and got it! Yvonne had the same focus, communication, attention to detail, and timeliness with this offer. She also worked to develop a relationship with the seller’s realtor, which made us feel like she was doing everything in her power to help us be competitive to get the house. We will absolutely work with Yvonne for all of our future housing needs. The key reasons we loved working with Yvonne:
– She is open, honest, and works to stay in constant communication with you. You know that she will call you or text you back at the first minute she has free.
– She is very knowledgeable about the market. She will go at your pace to find the right house, and once you decide to make an offer, she will do whatever it takes to make your offer competitive and look as good as possible.
– She has a great team of people she works with and she makes great recommendations of people to work with.
– She is incredibly kind and gracious!
We can’t thank Yvonne enough!”
