The Seattle real estate market is extremely competitive for buyers. When you find the one house you fall in love with sometimes a personal letter to the seller can give you a competitive advantage. The letter not only helps endear you to a seller but it also shows them how bad you want the house. If another buyer hasn’t written a letter you may come across as wanting the house more than the next buyer and this might be what convinces a seller to choose you. All the same, if another buyer has outbid you but you submitted a heartfelt letter that touched the sellers they might come back and give you the opportunity to price match the highest offer. I see this scenario happening often.


International President's Elite

We are very excited to announce winning the 2013 Award for #1 Top Producing Agent at Coldwell Banker Danforth. It’s a great honor because our priorities are not actually focused on sales volume. Our priority has always been providing exceptional client service. We then rely on referrals to gain new business. The fact that we were awarded top sales volume means that our clients are getting exceptional service and referring friends & family. For this we are deeply thrilled and very much appreciative of all of the ongoing business and referrals our clients have referred us.


Home Approved

I’ve been asked quite a few times do I need a home inspection if a home is brand new? The answer is absolutely yes. Homes are built by human beings and as such mistakes can be made. The home inspection may only turn up little things like adding metal braided hoses to the washer or tethering a shut off tool to the gas meter for added safety. But often times bigger issues turn up. I once had a home inspection on a new construction townhome where the builder simply forgot to supply the attic with insulation. More disturbing was that the home passed a city inspection as well. I’ve also seen plumbing leaks, exterior paint chipping and electrical wired backwards. In my experience builders are willing to fix these types of issues during the inspection negotiation period. If you do one thing for yourself during a home purchase, get a home inspection. You’ll be glad you did.
