We found Helen to be a very savvy person in her field. Her expertise and guidance from the very beginning of the process to the end was over the top. Pictures most often do not do a home justice, but under her direction, Helen's photographer and videographer did an amazing job of bringing our property to life. Her marketing materials were done in very good taste and she always made it a priority to field questions from potential buyers and their agents. For us as clients, she was always a text away and it gave us peace of mind to know that we were in the best of hands. We wouldn't hesitate for a moment to give Helen our highest recommendation or to call on her in the future.
"Working with Helen is a pleasure. She is always on top of things, personable, fun, knowledgeable and a good negotiator. My wife and I are recent transplants to the Northwest from Munich, German. Coming from a different country requires a realtor with excellent skills: we had to get to know the new city, a different buying process (eg. understanding pricing, loan application and close) and a lot of other intricacies. We were very lucky to have been referred to Helen, she really exceeded our expectations on every level.
From day one, Helen was super proactive. Before we even landed in the U.S. we had received great info about areas to live as well as a selection of homes based on our initial feedback/needs. Once we were on American soil, we saw a few homes and spent a good deal of time talking about what we were looking for. Helen intently listened, asked great questions to learn more about our specific needs and was very familiar with the Eastside area that we were interested in. She showed us around, pointed us to areas that would be a good fit for our needs and wants and always was a good sparring partner to think through various aspects of advantages and disadvantages of available options. We truly appreciated her professional perspective and together we found a home we loved.
After researching comps, we made an offer and started an intense negotiation process, during which we had to face many obstacles. From the beginning and throughout the closing process, Helen was always on top of it, and she was quickly available when we had questions. She patiently and knowledgeably walked us through any questions we had, worked through a lot of ambiguous situations (seller side was unresponsive and unreasonable) and resolved all issues no matter now big or small. Now we are happy to live in our dream home.
We appreciated her dedication to get the job done from start to finish, the positive spirit and would highly recommend Helen to anyone looking for a new home in the Seattle area and beyond. Without a doubt, we will work together with her on our next real estate endeavor."

"Helen is very professional, very thorough and pays attention to detail. She is an incredible advocate and we would absolutely recommend her to anyone selling their home."
- Amber K.
"Helen is by far the best realtor I've encountered in all of our years of buying and selling homes. Her market knowledge, marketing expertise, style, enthusiasm, patience, and kindness is everything you want in a realtor. Helen made selling our home and buying our next a smooth process.
Helen's years of experience allowed us to list our home for far more than we had anticipated and even though it was mid-October, we received multiple offers immediately and sold it for above list with terms that helped make our move less stressful. Her marketing/packaging of our house blew us away!
After the sale, Helen continued to diligently work with us, dedicating much time helping us find our new home in a low inventory market. She took the time to understand our personal parameters, taste, and personalities. In the end we found a home and, again, Helen made the transaction as smooth and enjoyable as possible. We highly recommend Helen whether you are buying or selling. You will not be disappointed. She is a gem!"

"Helen was truly a pleasure to work with. Professional in every way, market savvy, extremely efficient, and always congenial. Helen is a great listener and communicator and honed right in on our objectives and sales strategy. She is respectful and considerate of all parties in the transaction and is a consummate real estate specialist who clearly loves her work!"
- Francis K.
Helen showed us several properties out of her usual territory and helped us find one that was the right size, house design and type of property. She worked tenaciously to negotiate a good deal with difficult sellers and selling agent. All around outstanding job!"
- Lisa G
"Helen took over for my original realtor within a very short time and sold my house within one week. She is passionate in her real estate field, so much so that I'd say she has the magic touch! Honest, direct and very knowledgeable and so likable too!"
- Carol W.
"As a buyer or seller, you have one shot to get it right. Helen got it right from the start. Without her counsel and ability to work well with the buyer's agent, our selling outcome could have ended much differently.
Bottom line: Helen is very, very good at what she does and we are thankful to have had her on our side all the way through the process."
- Greg F.
