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

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.

    If these guys continue providing service at this level, we may have found the solution to all our future electric needs. Here are the things that I appreciated the most: (in no particular order). - Out of the box thinking and go getter attitude: Where other contractors needed to be accompanied by a crew to patch up the dry wall, Eric accomplished without tearing the wall at all (in any visible area)! That's real savings right there. Plus, lack of proximity to a switch was not a dead end to him, and he managed to find clever ways around it. - Competitive rates: Let's face it, cost is one of the most important consideration for most of us, and we got good competitive rates. Otherwise we wouldn't have undertaken the project at all. - Professional work: The estimated duration was pretty accurate, Eric brought along all his fancy tools and gadgets and cleaned up after completing the job. Very satisfied with the overall quality and professionalism. - Availability and Flexibility: Setting up time for a quote and the job itself was a breeze, in spite of our working hours. Based on my experience, I'd highly recommend Washington Electric without any reservations.

    Jake and Ed are God sends in this crazy real estate market. With sometimes only a few hours to a day's notice, they make themselves available for my clients' pre-inspections, allowing us to make strong, competitive offers. Ed's work is always high quality, I know I can trust his reports and feedback, and my clients and I really appreciate their professionalism. - Traci Fischer, Broker Marketplace Sotheby's Int'l Realty

      Dani was very helpful when I was looking for a home. If I had a question about a potential home of interest she was quick to let me know the status. She also wanted to make sure I was satisfied and was not pushy like some Realtors are known to be. She is very dedicated to her job and I will recommend her to friends.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      What is a home inspection?

      A home inspection is a visual inspection performed by a trained professional to determine the condition of a home’s main elements. The inspection usually takes several hours, during which the professional takes multiple photos and notes, tracking information for a final report. After the inspection, the pro will create a printed report, complete with photos and detailed information, summarizing the condition of the house. A home inspection is often used by potential home buyers prior to purchase to determine if there are larger issues (such as dry rot or a faulty foundation) that are not immediately visible to the untrained eye but that would cost a lot of money to resolve. Home inspections are also used by real estate agents and home sellers to address any concerns before putting a home on the market. Longtime homeowners can also schedule a home inspection to get a snapshot of their current home condition and identify any issues that need to be addressed. A home inspection is not a legal document that can be used for divorce or estate settlements, nor can it be used to secure loans or mortgages.

      How do you find a good home inspector?

      A home inspection should tell you the true condition of a home. A competent home inspector closely inspects your home’s structure and foundation, looks for termites and signs of problems like mold, checks the wiring to ensure it’s in good condition, and investigates the HVAC system, among other items. To find a good home inspector, first research whether home inspection is licensed in your area; not all states require licensure.

      If there is no regulatory body that licenses home inspection in your state, there are other ways to make sure you are hiring a trustworthy professional. Carefully look into the person’s reviews and ask for references. Ask if they are committed to continuing education, and whether they are active members in any reputable home inspector organizations. Some organizations that recognize and/or certify home inspectors are the American Society of Home Inspectors, National Association of Certified Home Inspectors, and American Home Inspectors Training. Don’t be shy about asking to see credentials and licensing.

      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 should be included in a home inspection?

      A complete home inspection involves a visual investigation of all major elements that make up your home. A home inspection is a vital part of buying or selling a home to ensure you’re not accidentally buying a termite-infested home or one with major structural defects. Paying for an inspection before purchasing a home can save you a lot of money in the long run. The national average home inspection cost is $310, with prices ranging higher or lower based on your location and the square footage of your home. After performing a walk-through inspection, the pro should provide you a printed report — complete with photos and recommendations — detailing what’s in good condition, what would benefit from minor repairs, and what needs immediate attention. Home inspection pros know how to spot trouble areas, but they’re not licensed contractors, electricians or plumbers, so they may suggest you hire a licensed pro to address specific problems. Here are the main components that a home inspection covers:

      • Home structure
        • Foundation, grading and drainage, roof covering, roof structure, interior and exterior attic walls, ceilings and floors, interior and exterior doors, windows, stairways, fireplace and chimney, porches, balconies, decks, attached carports, and crawl space.
      • Electrical
        • HVAC system, heating equipment, cooling equipment, ductwork and vents, fixtures and switches, branch circuits, receptacles, service entrance and panels.
      • Plumbing
        • Water heater and equipment, drains, waste systems, vents, and plumbing fixtures.
      • Appliances
        • Garage door openers, garbage disposal, dishwasher, exhaust range, range hood, bathroom exhaust fans, cooktop, oven and microwave.

      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.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
