Originally from Southern California, my husband and I came to Seattle for a job interview for me while we were we here thought it would be smart to at least tour the area and get a feel for it. We instantly fell in love, and decided that whether I got the job or not, we were moving here. Mara was recommended by a local friend, and we called her asking if she would be willing to show us around the neighborhoods and maybe a few homes being from out of state, we knew nothing of the area. Mara was super quick to get back to us, asking all the right questions, and getting a solid feel for who we were and what our tastes and style was. She started emailing us listings, and right away we could tell she got us. She put together an extensive tour, showing us all the areas of interest, as well as an amazing selection of homes. The very first home she showed us wasn't even on our list, but she thought we would love the area and the opportunity for this quaint beach bungalow. She was so right. After looking at 10+ houses in a day, we kept going back to the first n our mind. A week later, she emailed us that the price had been reduced and we immediately jumped on it. In less than 8 weeks, our escrow was closed, we packed up and are now living in this beautiful little bungalow, with views to die for. And we would have never found it if Mara hadn't taken the time to get to know us, and show us this special place. Additionally, when we moved in, she met us with the keys and went above and beyond to help us with a heating issue that day (even her husband stepped in to help)! Amazing customer service! Real, down to earth, professional, honest, kind. We could go on and on about our experience with Mara. We highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home in the Seattle area. You will definitely be in the best of hands!
