We love helping West Seattle home buyers & sellers achieve their dreams! We also work within a 5-ish mile radius of downtown Seattle, and have lived in several of Seattle's great neighborhoods.
Give us a call!
This may sound crazy in today's world of e-mailing, texting, tweeting and surfing: but you may actually find the best way to find a good fit for your real estate needs is to pick up the phone, and meet with somebody in person. We're always more than happy to meet for a face to face meeting, tell you what we can do for you, and let you decide for yourself if we're a good match. No strings attached.
On Top of the Market, but not the Whole World
Outside West Seattle, our business is focused within a short radius of downtown. We feel it's not possible to truly "know" the micro-markets within a 20 mile radius of a major metropolitan area with over 3 million people, so we focus on neighborhoods where most of our clients want to live. Most tourists & newcomers to Seattle don't realize we have so many wonderful neighborhoods outside of downtown- almost small towns unto themselves, and yet they're only 2 or 3 miles away from the city center! That's part of what makes Seattle so special in our opinion. And although we both call West Seattle home now, we've actually lived in just about all of them at one time or another.
Clients, In Their Own Words
"Roger won us over at our first meeting by letting us know there was no pressure to choose a house. We were first-time buyers with a limited budget, particular tastes, and the clock ticking on the 2009 tax credit. Where other agents might have rushed us into a decision, or put us on the back burner, Roger provided expert and patient guidance as we made our way through the listings. He gave us honest assessments of the properties that we liked, and helped us think of the future when we considered our options. When we finally found our house, he did an excellent job of negotiating for us. Now we have a house we absolutely love, and a 100% happy experience of first-time buying, all thanks to Roger. He is a great realtor, a pleasure to work with, and we highly recommend him!" A & P, West Seattle
"Roger represented me in finding a great deal on a challenging multifamily investment property. Not only did he evaluate several sites in West Seattle that were exactly what I was looking for, you can trust him because his is very honest in his assessment (you have to appreciate that), extremely responsive, and communicates well. I would have lost this deal if it weren't for Roger, who managed the process while I was out of state. He kept in constant contact with all parties, suggested a price lower than what I would have, and made it easy. I recommend him to all my friends, and wouldn't use anyone else." -G.H., Bryant
"Roger worked with us to sell our house. After thorough research he priced the house perfectly and it sold within a few days. He's professional, conscientious to details, and always looking out for the client's best interest. I highly recommend working with Roger on any real estate deal." -D & M, Madrona
"My husband and I lived in a condo with our active toddler and felt for his sake, it was time to get a house with a yard. Roger helped us find a home that was so beautiful and well situated that we ended up in a bidding war over it even in this sluggish market. Roger helped us come up with an offer that sealed the deal, in spite of the fact that our competition was willing to pay even more than we were. We are so thrilled to be in our new home and really appreciate Roger's help in getting us here." -D & S, Mt. Baker
"Roger has taken the description of a "Realtor" and turned it into "Relator," which is exactly what you need when you're buying a home. He is an extremely good listener who hears what you want and then intuitively knows how to guide you to finding the perfect home. He's a treasure as an agent and I have personally recommended him to many very happy homebuyers. You couldn't ask for better!" -Sindy, West Seattle
"Roger sold my husband and I our first house in Madison Valley. He did a great job at listening to what we were looking for, and helped us to understand all of the paperwork and process required to purchase our home. Thanks to Roger, we've lived in a great house that we love for the past three years. I highly recommend him as a realtor!" -P&M, Madison Valley
"Roger helped me buy my first home in Seattle. Within days of meeting Roger, he helped me locate a long list of homes that fit my specifications. Roger was very supportive, flexible, and responsive as I went from a "just casually looking" to "definitely want to buy" mode in just a week, and successfully got me through a 3-week close. In addition to being everything you could want in an agent, he is just a great guy to work with who kept me laughing through what we all know can be a very stressful experience!" -M.G., Ballard
"Asking Roger to be our realtor when we decided we wanted to buy was a no brainer. He is really someone you can trust and he genuinely cares for his clients. At first we were "just looking" and we never ever felt pressured or rushed. Roger speaks our language (figuratively AND technically speaking!) and made the whole buying process really smooth also by providing good recommendations for financial and mortgage contacts. We have already recommended him to friends who successfully bought a place and were delighted with the recommendation!" C&E, Downtown
"Roger was awesome. He not only represented us well, but he's also been our good friend and helped us indulge in some typical of us adventures, including helping on the cinematography of our Home Depot contest video. He was also very supportive and patient during the emotional roller coaster our homebuying process was. We highly recommend working with Roger!!!" S&J, Greenwood
"Getting into a blisteringly hot housing market was intimidating, especially as a first time buyer, but Roger managed to take the stress out of the equation and I look back on that time as more fun than anything else because we knew we could trust Roger to lead us through any obstacles. We LOVE our house and heck, he even got us a dog walker lined up so my ENTIRE family, Golden Retrievers included (and especially), loves Roger." -T&F, West Seattle
