"Just closed on our first house today! Whoa, the whole process of buying a home is crazy. Luckily we had a solid team helping us out, and that started with Ann. She came highly recommended, and I'm so happy she was with us every step of the way. She is calm, and her calmness is contagious. Whenever we were unsure of any step of the process, she was there to chill us out. From the beginning when we were toying with the idea of buying a house, she reassured us that we actually could do it. Then when we started to really filter our preferences and get serious about it (my partner and I both had different things that were important to us), she stayed up to speed on all the listings that fit both of our needs. One thing I really like is how current she is with new technologies. This really turned out to be clutch for us. For instance, she had us download an app which allowed us to share listings and messages through it (HomeSpotter I believe). Also, if we needed to sign any documents, she'd send it through Docusign, and we were able sign them remotely in like 2 seconds. Super convenient. Ann understands that buying a home is a really big deal, especially for first-timers. We didn't ever feel pressure from her, and we actually enjoyed the process of looking at houses on the weekends and sometimes during the week (she was seemingly always available, which was awesome). Going to look at houses with Ann became one our favorite things to do. She ended up finding us a house that we are both in love with, and because of her tech savviness, we were able to get our offer in before another competitor whose agent was more old school (apparently she had to meet her clients and have them manually sign papers and deliver them). We got our offer accepted before they could counter. Once the offer was accepted, Ann stayed helpful throughout the whole process, hooking us up with all the people we needed. I would recommend Ann to anyone who is thinking about buying a home, wether it is a first-time buyer or not. She did an outstanding job for us. Thanks Ann!"
"Jared has sold both of my homes for me. Both homes came with their own challenges. The first home is a bungalow house located in West Seattle. Due to the age of the house and physical attributes (67 stairs before entering the front door), many things needed to be fixed before selling it. Jared was able to get a team to fix the critical things around the house during the Winter of 2019. The house was sold within a reasonable time. What was impressive about this transaction was the fact that I never worried about contractors, bills, payments, and stressful information as Jared worked on all of that behind the scenes. I was very impressed by the hard work and dedication Jared put into selling our home. I had another house in Queen Anne where it presented many challenges. But these challenges were not home related but environment and circumstances related. I decided to sell my house three weeks before the Covid-19 or Corona virus epidemic. Jared once again worked tirelessly to ensure everything was taken care of. Everything from staging the house to working with other real estate agents, to handling special requests. The house was sold very fast and I’m very grateful Jared worked on both homes. Would I recommend Jared again? For sure. Jared is probably one of the smartest real estate agents in the business. He treats each home as his. He treats every client as family. He’ll go above and beyond his work to make sure his clients are satisfied."
"Aaron was just what we needed in this crazy market. He helped us define our search using a collaborative database of listings and by showing us a number of properties, asking probing questions to really understand exactly what we hoped to buy. Next, he poured over new listings as soon as the came out to make sure we didn't miss all the houses selling the same weekend they list. He was very responsive to our questions and evolving wish list for our dream home. I really appreciated his use of technology, appropriate for each situation: from leaving comments in our collaborative database of homes, to a quick reminder text when needed, and a phone call when a longer conversation was required. He eloquently wrangled the opinions of all five people weighing in on this purchase. His experience in the industry helped us navigate the fast-paced market, including what we should expect, what concessions we could afford to make and what dangers to watch out for. He kept our nerves steady through rejected bids and lengthy inspection reports. He expertly informed the listing agent on our backstory, ultimately giving the seller the good vibes that landed us our new home! Thank you Aaron."
"Ann is the prettiest and most professional agent-inside and out! It is rare to find a person who you feel really has your best interest at heart. My partner and I had the best experience buying our first home. I am very indecisive and she was very patient with our needs to get us into our dream home. The buying process was much more manageable with her help, as we were both working or very busy during this experience. It was so fun looking at houses with her, I am honestly sad it’s over! She planned out our days with the best places for us to see in order to utilize our time the most effectively. Ann was able to negotiate to have all our need and concerns met. The fact that she has grow up in the Seattle area was an extra plus for picking the best location to start looking. Very easy to communicate with, fast responder, and set up all the inspections, lender communication. I will be using her in the future and recommending her to all my friends."
"Jared sold my home for 25% over asking with no contingencies. Results speak for themselves. In my case Jared acted as both a sellers agent and a project manager. Beyond the services you expect from a realtor, Jared brought in his team of designers and contractors to determine what upgrades were needed to get the best return on investment. In his role as project manager Jared kept everything moving smoothly and was always available when issues came up. The contractors were top notch, the work was done on time and at budget. When it was time to sell. Jared was spot on determining the best asking price and marketing the property. Great knowledge of the market. An experienced and professional team of people to work with. I would recommend Jared and his team to anyone planning to sell their home."
"My wife and I used Jared Holland as a remodel contractor (JH1 Homes) as well as the listing broker in preparing our home for sale. On the remodel side, Jared was communicative, responsive and transparent with the costs of the rehab. He provided all copies of all invoices and work orders as promised. His crew was extremely fast and we completed a whole house remodel within 3 months. On the listing side, Jared was a great negotiator and handled the transaction flawlessly. He had excellent marketing materials, including professional photos and video of the house and property. Jared sold our house in one day at $129,000 over asking price! If we were remaining in the area, we would not hesitate to use Jared again."
"I can't imagine working with someone other than Jared, he made the entire process of finding a home as easy as it could possibly be. He is always available and responsive, and does a great job with communicating expectations. I feel like he looks out for my best interests, and his expertise is apparent. When buying a house on the MLS got challenging, he made it easy by finding a home off market and selling it to us after completing a stunning full house renovation. It's like we have a beautiful brand new home, with 70 year old bones, and a one year warranty! One of many ways I know Jared cares about my satisfaction, he stopped by to do some touch up painting himself!"
"Alla took her time to thoroughly explain and answer any or all questions we had regarding purchasing our first home. She was always available to us and our crazy schedule. One of the most important things I believe is she let us know the good, the bad and the ugly of every house we viewed. She truly wants her clients to be happy. Her honesty and loyalty to her clients is what will keep up continuing to use her for our purchases in the future. In the end she worked extremely hard and got our family our first house in the neighborhood we desired. We will continue to recommend Alla to all of our friends and family for years to come."
"My wife and I had our first born in March 2020 and we were looking for the perfect home to grow our family in. After many years of remodeling a fixer upper in Seattle (Madrona), we finally decided that it would be best to sell the house for something a little more turn key. I called Jared and spoke to him about the potential sale of the fixer upper and he walked me through the entire process. Jared's expertise, communication, and quick execution allowed us to close the deal on our new home. No more remodel work for me, as I am happily spending my weekends with my family. Thank you Jared!"
"Michael was incredible in helping my fiancé and I find our first home. We had some pretty unique criteria and had picked out a region where we thought we could afford. Michael, a owner of a few fixed-up properties himself, kept his ear to the ground and found a home much closer to the city than we ever thought we could've paid for. He was instrumental in the inspection process, the thorough financial analysis, the offering and closing. He even pitched in help for rehabbing the home afterwards to earn rental income. Would give Michael a strong recommend!"
