Gavin was not only professional and helpful, but he was very knowledgeable. He knew what my husband and I were looking for and he helped us find the perfect house for my family to grow. He was interested in our lives, hobbies, and where we're from and where we're going in our life. I couldn't have asked for a better realtor to buy my first home. He gave us a great experience and he found the right house for us. Thank you Gavin, you've been such a blessing during this chapter in my life helping us find our perfect first home

This was our first home we bought, Trey made this not only a painless effort but a enjoyable one at that. He steered us away from questionable houses instead of going for the quick and easy sale. Trey gave us solid advice and treated our purchase as if he were doing the purchase for himself. he was always available when needed and gave endless hours to help us find our perfect home. Not only did i gain a great real estate agent we now have a new family friend. Do yourself a favor and let Trey and his team make your dreams come true. You will not be disappointed.

As a previous licensed real estate broker in several states, including California and Washington, I have worked with a number of extraordinarily professional realtors. Ben Johnson is my personal realtor when I need perspective, a fresh insight and re-direction. Ben completely handled my last personal home purchase of residential water front property that had an unusual amount of seller induced and improvement deficiencies. Because of Ben's keen acumen, tenacious business and people skills and his attention to a myriad of problems I closed on an incredible parcel. Throughout the process I knew Ben consistently placed me first. When you are serious about real estate Ben Johnson is the one person you want working for you. Consequently Ben will always be my first call when I buy or sell real estate.

Kelly was my real estate agent when I recently sold my home in the Sunset Hills neighborhood in Ballard. She went way above and beyond to help me get my house on the market quickly, even helping scrub the garage roof and move huge amounts of boxes in my basement. In addition, she really worked with other realtors at Windermere to help determine how best to show my house, how to price it appropriately, and was a huge advocate for me throughout the process. There was some hand-holding... Kelly has amazing, positive energy and I cannot recommend her highly enough!

We hired Mike to sell my parents home. He did an awesome job and went above and beyond to make the process as easy as possible for my mom. I fully recommend mike for all your real estate needs. Never have I seen an agent go out of his way to help their client! And the best part is we had an offer and accepted it within 48 hours of it going on the market. And we got full asking price!!

I worked with Chris last fall for the purchase of my family home. He was friendly, easy to work with and knowledgeable which was a refreshing change fromm my last two real estate experiences. After finding out our needs and wants he went to work narrowing down our option and finding several homes for us to look at making the process of looking at endless homes non existent. I was very interested in one of the homes and decided to have Chris write up an offer below asking. Chris negotiated the deal back and fourth with the sellers agent and ended up saving us 30,000 off the asking price. He also followed through attending the inspection of the home and the re inspection to make sure all the fixes had been done. I was thrilled with the service Chris provided and would recommend his services to anyone. He is top notch.

I've had the opportunity to work with Kameron a number of times and seen the detail and care he puts into each client interaction. He's an expert in negotiations and does it all while providing the best customer service. I'd highly recommend Kameron to anyone looking for a great local real estate agent.

We hired Renee Gese to sell our rental home that had been severely damaged by our tenant. Renee was very honest and straightforward about what to expect and she worked hard to find us a buyer. We had an unsatisfactory experience with our prior broker and were skeptical that anyone in Real Estate could be relied on. Renee changed our minds. She is very professional, has a positive attitude, is honest about what to expect, and reliable. We will hire Renee again when we sell our current home.

I've been working with Barry for a number of years. I love his HD camera and the elevated platform for overhead shots. A bonus to real estate agents is that he is a licensed agent and also has his own MLS key. Barry recently shot two of my personal homes and exceeded my expectations. Thanks Barry!

I went through Zillow to find a real estate agent and fortunately, Oana was assigned to me. She was immediate in her response to connect with me and since day 1 she was an amazing communicator. Through the whole process, Oana kept us alerted, informed, and updated through every bit of information or change. I felt like I was better held accountable because she was always on her A game. She started the process by sending me lists of homes to view online which she asked me to rank. She then set up viewings immediately (I was only in town for a couple of days and had a small window). Along the way, she educated us on all things home buying since this was our first time. We are a young couple and new to this experience but she treated us like a million bucks and really made us feel like we could trust her advise and follow her lead. Once we found the home we liked, Oana worked quickly to get everything done with us and we were able to close in less than a month (which is almost unheard of)!! Through the bank loan and title company process, she was very informative and stayed in touch daily with all parties to help move things along. While we were searching for our home I mentioned that it was my birthday and she brought me a gift the next time we met. After we moved into our home she sent us the most beautiful welcome home gift basket and she still continues to extend her help with anything we need while moving and settling in. Oana is amazing and we are so lucky that we got to work with her. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy, rent, or sell. You won't regret working with her!!!

    We knew Danielle was the right fit for selling our house after our first meeting with her. We loved how honest she was with us, up front with what was going on in the market and every time she said she would do something, it was done promptly. The constant communication and updates were amazing throughout as well. We couldn’t have asked for a smoother transaction and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for Real Estate Services!

    Connie and Larry helped me sell a house on 5 acres and a condominium. From the very beginning when I interviewed prospective agents they stood out. They are extremely knowledgeable. When buyers agents made mistakes in preparing their offers, Connie helped them follow procedure. You will find lenders really appreciate this. They are great communicators. They answer the phone, emails and texts right away even in the evening and on weekends. They provided feedback on how each prospective buyer was seeing the house and let me know immediately if there was anything we could do to get offers. Just as important, they are good people. From letting me borrow their lawn mower to doing things I couldn't do (I had moved out of state) like fixing smoke detectors and cleaning out my garage when the buyers decided they did not want any of the tools and other things I had left behind when I moved to all the good things they do for the community. I cannot say enough good things about Connie and Larry. Selling a house can be a very stressful experience. Connie and Larry make it a lot less so. I have recommended them to friends and will continue to do so. I strongly recommend them to you.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What does a real estate agent do?

    Real estate agents help their clients buy, sell, and rent commercial and residential properties. There are also real estate agents that sell industrial and agricultural real estate, but the majority sell residential properties. To become a real estate agent, you must be at least 18 years old, successfully complete real estate courses, and pass a real estate exam. Be sure to check for any required licensing, too. Often real estate agents will earn 5 percent to 6 percent of the total home sale price for their work in representing their client. Typically this commission is split equally between the buyer’s agent and the seller’s agent. Here is an overview of what a real estate agent does, according to the United States Department of Labor:

    • Represent clients who are looking to buy, sell and rent properties.
    • Stay knowledgeable about regional real estate prices, mortgages, market conditions and related information, and advise clients accordingly.  
    • Determine competitive market prices by comparing properties.
    • Create and publicize lists of properties for sale, including details such as location and features.
    • Market properties through advertisements, open houses and listing services.
    • Show prospective buyers or renters properties.
    • Present purchase offers to sellers for consideration.
    • Mediate negotiations between buyer and seller.
    • Ensure that all terms of purchase contracts are met.
    • Prepare documents, such as loyalty contracts, purchase agreements and deeds.

    What's the difference between a real estate broker and an agent?

    Real estate agents and real estate brokers both help clients buy, sell, and rent residential and commercial properties. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, real estate brokers are licensed to manage their own real estate businesses. Real estate agents cannot have their own real estate office and must work under a broker. Real estate brokers often have real estate firms and employ real estate agents. Those real estate agents may be employees of the firm, or they may work on contract and earn part of any commission they bring into the firm.

    If you are a homeowner ready to sell or a buyer in the market for a new home, either a real estate broker or a real estate agent can help you achieve your goal. What is more important than their title is their track record and client success stories. When interviewing real estate agents or brokers to help you buy or sell a home, ask about their recent sales history as compared with the original listing prices. If you’re selling a home, ask how they would market your home and what price they would list it at. Whether you hire an agent or broker, you want a professional who will have your best interests at heart.

    What should you look for in a real estate agent?

    When you’re hiring a real estate agent you want to find a qualified pro who can negotiate the best deal for your home — whether you’re buying or selling. Reading reviews will help you weed out obvious bad operators; you want to work with someone who treats their clients with fairness and respect. That said, you also want someone who can play hardball and maximize your real estate deal. Ask for references from recent clients, and be sure to call them.

    Experts encourage you to interview more than one prospective real estate agent before hiring. A home sale or home purchase is a big deal — sometimes the biggest deal in a person’s life — and you want to find an agent who will work hard for you. In today’s market, having a real estate agent who is social media savvy and has an attractive online presence is critical. Ask the agent how they plan to market your house. Review their listings, and ask yourself if they have professional photos with homes that are professionally staged. If the answer is no, they might not have the marketing savvy you’re looking for. Ask what price they would list your house at and why. Pay attention to how they communicate with you during your initial interviewing phase. Are they too busy to respond for several days? Are they clear and helpful? This information is a clue to how they’ll engage during the entire process.

    What do real estate agents charge?

    Real estate agents typically don’t charge a set rate to their clients, but rather earn a commission on the price of the final home sale. In traditional real estate, there is a buyer’s agent and a seller’s agent. The two agents receive 5 percent to 6 percent of the final home sale price and split it evenly, meaning they each earn roughly 2.5 percent to 3 percent of the total home sale. If you are a home seller, you may have fees associated with the sale that are above and beyond the commission the agents earn. The real estate agent may have you pay marketing fees, MLS fees, early cancellation fees, or more. Always ask pricing details before signing a contract so you clearly understand your financial obligations. Here are some of the average (and common) costs that can arise when selling a home:

    • Home inspection: $200-$350 or more, depending on region.
    • Home appraisal: $250-$400 or more, depending on region.
    • Professional real estate photography: $275-$550 or more, depending on photographer, square footage of house, and special requests like sunset shots.
    • Closing costs: Often split between the seller and buyer. An average range for the buyer to pay is between 3 percent and 4 percent, with the seller paying a lower fee at 1 percent to 3 percent of the home’s price.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
