Personable, On Time, High Integrity
Our work with Ann resulted from a cold call into the local Windermere office. We couldn't have been happier with the relationship. She is thorough, responsive (still to this day, 8 years after our transaction) and professional. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a home in the Seattle area. We will use her again when the time is right for our next real estate transaction.
Great Results, Personable, High Integrity
Ann is a real estate my family has worked with when finding homes in the seattle area twice. She is the only realtor I would ever use. She is honest, fun to work with and has great knowledge. She is never pushy, in fact she kept us from buying homes which would have lost much of their value in the 2007 downturn. We would never have even noted our current home on redfin. Ann knew we were about to have a child and which neighborhoods would appeal to us after that which was not where we were looking. She very quietly directed us to homes which would be more appropriate in addition to those we e-mailed her about several times a day. Ann is the best agent and I feel lucky to know about her!
Great Results, Expert
Ann is a fantastic agent who worked with me to sell my home and purchase a new one in a different city. She was instrumental in helping us negotiate to get us more money from our buyer and in lowering our purchase price from the seller. She actively listened to our needs in a new home and limited the homes that she showed us to those that met our parameters and were within our budget. We ended up with a home that met our needs in every way and are very happy. I'm not planning on moving anytime soon, but Ann would be the first call that I would make in the event that I do. I would happily recommend Ann for any real estate transaction.
Bought a Single Family home in 2020 in Seattle, WA.
Ann helped us choose a house that became our home. We would never have been able to compete in this market without her. We are brand new to the Seattle area, moving from out of state. We gave her an impossible task - find us an affordable Seattle home in the middle of a global pandemic that meets a long list of needs. And, she delivered. She met with us over the phone several times before we even moved out to Seattle to talk us through the ins and outs of the Seattle real estate market, hear about our family's needs, and set a plan for where we should look once we're out here. She worked tirelessly with us every weekend, patiently showing us different parts of Seattle and house after house until we found the perfect one. She showed us different areas of the city, and walked us through the pros and cons of each house and area in relation to our list of needs. She is extremely knowledgeable about the Seattle area and helped us navigate the city. Once we found our home, she made sure we had the most attractive offer possible and negotiated with the Seller to ensure that the house was in good shape prior to closing and kept us on track to close on time. My husband and I really enjoyed getting to know her. She is a true professional. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a home in the Seattle area.
Bought and sold a Condo home in 2019 in Seattle, WA.
Ann has helped with 3 purchases and 1 sale in the last 5 years and has been such a wonderful resource and friend. She's always been transparent with me and has never made me feel rushed. My first real estate purchase was a condo in Seattle in 2015 and took almost 7 months between meeting Ann and getting keys, but it was the perfect place for the perfect price and Ann assisted me in what to look for in a mortgage company and even met me at escrow for closing to help me navigate all of the paperwork. In 2017 when my husband and I wanted to get a house in the suburbs, she took our seemingly impossible wishlist and price point and got us in a 4 bedroom in a competitive neighborhood that is again absolutely perfect for our family. There were some heavy negotiations and she advised us during offers (we had made one offer before our current house) which concessions we should make in this market and what we shouldn't risk. And then in late 2019, I needed to find a place for my retired mother whose social security wasn't going to cover rent increases at her apartment building. Ann bent over backwards helping to get the Seattle condo we had been renting into sale ready shape and offered to project manage and meet many of the vendors as I had a newborn on my hands. We were able to sell the condo within a month and got a great townhouse in Bothell for my mom to live in that's closer to our family, in a safer neighborhood, and my mom never has to worry about being priced out. I'm a life long client.
Bought a Single Family home in 2020 in Shoreline, WA.
We were experienced home buyers in another state, but were not familiar with the local market or area. We met Ann at an open house and while we didn't purchase that house, we liked her approach and professionalism. Most importantly, she made herself readily available because given the hot market we had to react the same day a property was listed. She also was very quick to call the listing agent to find out details that may have helped us get an offer accepted. While it was difficult for a buyer to be able to negotiate much in this sellers market she did the best she could to make sure we did not overpay. And once in escrow, things went very smoothly. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an agent that is professional, friendly and knowledgeable about the local Seattle area.
