Testimonials

 

Real estate represents a key moment in someone’s life: whether it be moving to your dream home, selling an estate property, buying a home for the first time, joining households or relocating out of the area.  It is a transaction involving your most expensive asset. I do not take that lightly. The core values of my real estate practice are trust, loyalty and integrity. I strive to exceed my clients expectations in every moment of a transaction. I align myself with partners that share the same vision and values as I do. My goal is to earn your trust, and business for life.

“Caitlin is the perfect person to have in your court. She is one of the most competent, responsive, hardworking people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. We literally would not have closed on our house without her tenacity, knowledge of the current market and her ability to influence others. From the moment we started working with her, I knew she was going to get things done. As first time home buyers, there was a lot that we didn’t know – she was not only our educator, but thought outside of the box to get us our perfect home. She is the perfect advocate that will fight tooth and nail to get her buyers exactly what they want. In the current market, anything can happen, houses are on the market for only days at a time, but this in no way intimidates her. She knows all of the right things to do to put her buyers ahead of the game. What separates Caitlin from other Real Estate Agents is that finding a perfect home for her clients isn’t just a job to her, but a passion. It is that difference that truly makes Caitlin a one of a kind agent and person. Buying a home is one of the biggest decisions and events one can experience and having someone like Caitlin by your side through that makes all the difference.”

“Caitlin was absolutely instrumental in helping me purchase my first home. Prior to showing me anything on the market, she took the time to really get to know me and understand my goals in the process: what my lifestyle looked like, what features were important to me, geographic preferences, etc. Her intuition is uncanny. Going into the process I was convinced that I wanted to buy a single family home. During our tour, we looked a handful of homes that hit all of my criteria. The last stop on the tour was a condo, which she included because she thought it hit so many of my hot buttons and fit my lifestyle very well. Low and behold, that was the one I ended up offering on! I love the fact that Caitlin was willing to think outside the box, and give me a fresh perspective. Despite having multiple parties interested in the property, Caitlin was able to successfully position our offer ahead of the other bidders. She is crafty, and worked tirelessly for me throughout the process. During the inspection period, Caitlin was always available and recommended several great contractors who I ended up using. I ran into an issue with my financing during escrow and thought that I was going to lose the deal. Caitlin was able to compel the seller to grant us an extension while I worked through the financing and ultimately closed on the property. After the sale closed, Caitlin was the first person to congratulate me and come over to my new condo with a personalized closing gift. Super thoughtful! To this day she continues to follow up with me, sending me info on the local market, comps in my building, even ideas for interior decorating (which, being a guy myself, is invaluable). She helped me with my refi last year, recommending a great local lender and helping me navigate that process. Caitlin is the ultimate professional, and exemplifies all the qualities anyone would want in a real estate agent. She is tenacious, knowledgeable, creative, and incredibly passionate about what she does. I will never conduct a real estate transaction without Caitlin being on my side of the table, and would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home! She’s the best!”

“Caitlin is a professional in every sense of the word. Buying a home is stressful- especially in this market. This is the woman you want in your corner. She has the years of experience, industry knowledge, and calm focus of a seasoned professional. What’s even better? She also has the hustle, drive, and “roll-up-your sleeves” -commitment of someone who’s new to the space and committed to building their brand.

If you work with her- she will help you understand what your true ideal home means, guiding you as a supportive but direct consultant. This made our search more focused- and made the process of competing in this seller’s market more business-like, and less emotional.

She will also be your advocate- finding creative solutions to some of the following frustrations (at least in my case) ; low inventory, bidding wars, and short turnaround times from listing to offer review date. Caitlin also has true and loyal connections and relationships in the industry – which allows her to smooth out some bumps in the road (like inspectors and contractors who are hard to get last minute). These relationships speak to her character- and gave me even more comfort in my shopping process.

Since she’s from the area and so passionate about being an expert  -she informed me of up and coming neighborhoods that I was not aware of – even though I am from here too.

Most of all- she will go ABOVE AND BEYOND for you- reading documents late at night to be sure we understood the greenbelt building rules and property lines (at one point she read a 48 page document that was sent to me the night before offer review- and found a VERY strange building rule which made the house a no-go for us – as it would be impossible to add on).

Caitlin saved me time, heartache, stress, money, and risk as my partner in shopping for a home. I would and do recommend her to everyone/anyone who’s looking to buy in the greater Seattle area.
