"Alan, I wanted to thank you for all your efforts helping me buy my house! It was a challenging transaction with many "bumps in the road", but you made it all come together despite the difficulties we had to deal with.
You are a real professional, from being in frequent contact with me to guiding me past all the issues. I just wanted you to know that I am completely satisfied with the job you performed and I really am enjoying my house.
In fact, I have referred a co-worker of mine to you, because I know you will take care of him and guide him through the process, just as you did with me!"
"When I decided to sell my 2 rental properties, Alan gave good advice and guidance from start to finish – beginning with letting me know which repairs would bring a good ROI and which would be a waste of money. He was always quick to return my calls and willing to spend time answering my questions. Even better, he used good marketing and negotiation techniques and got those properties sold."
"When I set out to find a home, Alan insisted that I take my time (and his). Ever observant, he was quick to point out the negatives of each house as well as the positives. He made sure that I had all the facts and noticed all the details, so that I could make an informed choice."
"When my husband and I moved back to Washington State after 20 years in California we were unsure where in the Puget Sound area we wanted to settle. In addition, the market in this area was extremely “hot” and homes were getting multiple offers making purchasing difficult and stressful to say the least.
Alan was absolutely great about showing us different areas and neighborhoods until we had narrowed it down to one area we were really excited about. Then we found the perfect house, but discovered it had two other offers on it.
Thanks to Alan’s experience, knowledge of the market and negotiating skills we did get the house but we did not pay more than the market value. He is someone you want to have in your corner buying or selling a home - We wholeheartedly recommend him!"

"As a first time home buyer, I was pretty overwhelmed with the process and nervous about finding exactly what I wanted and needed. As soon as I met with Alan, he put me at ease. He has a way about him that is calming and you know he is looking out for your best interests.
Alan is trustworthy and patient and really listened to what I was looking for, helping me to narrow down what was truly important to me. He was quick to return calls and emails and was willing to take me to the many listings I wanted to see. He offered his suggestions and opinions, both the good and the bad. Lastly, Alan really knows Western Washington, the real estate market and what is critical for resale in the future, which I found to be invaluable!
Thanks to Alan, I just love my house! I have and will continue to recommend Alan to everyone!!"

"I wanted to take the time to write a letter of thanks for everything you did for us during the sale of our previous home and the purchase of our new home.
Our situation was not an easy one, but through it all, you remained diligent in your efforts and served us in the most professional, patient, and courteous way. Neither my husband or I were looking forward to handing over a large amount of money to someone we did not know, but I do have to say that it was the best money we could have ever spent! You are AWESOME!!!
When we first started looking for a real estate agent, my husband was very skeptical. We immediately felt at ease with the level of professionalism you exhibited in our first meeting.
You were truly interested in finding the home that was just right for us and the new house is absolutely everything we both wanted and needed!
Even though the house I thought I wanted was more money and you would have made more commission, you were honest with me about the reality of the repairs it would need and how it would affect our payment and budget limitations.
There were many things that your years of knowledge contributed to in our purchase and our sale. You were able to point out things that neither my husband nor I were aware of.
Also, your skill behind the camera was instrumental in the presentation of our house. The photos looked AMAZING and captured the true beauty of our home! That resulted in three offers within the first week on the market!!
I appreciate the fact that although the home we were purchasing was brand new, you recommended we have it inspected. The inspector you found was very thorough and detail oriented. He found an issue with standing water that would have cost us almost $5,000 to repair had it been overlooked. You went to the seller, and they agreed to fix it at no cost to us.
Your integrity, work ethic, kindness, and professionalism are the best! In the future, if anyone we know is looking to buy or sell a house, we would excitedly refer them to you.
You truly were a God send!"
