Jonathan helped us negotiate our first residence when we moved to Bellevue from the Midwest several years ago. He was the property manager for the rental we moved into. He was so helpful and courteous and fair to us, even though his professional interests in that role lay with his employer, our landlord. I decided then to keep tabs on him so we could work together for any future house hunting.
Last year we finally purchased a home, and as planned, we contacted Jonathan. The experience was simply perfect. He’s an exceptional people-person, and you can feel it; he really dialed into what we were looking for, and perhaps even had a better feel than we did for what we wanted. His patience never flagged through a couple of weeks and dozens of viewings. His geographic knowledge is complete and he even has a sense of the community cultures of the neighborhoods we looked at. His skill at the real estate process is thorough and confident. He also has a network of vetted professionals to recommend for all things related to house purchasing and moving.
If I could buy houses regularly, I would work with Jonathan every time.
