Results: SOLD! Homes, condos, land and waterfront properties.
LAUREL & CHRISTOPHER (Seattle): We are repeat clients of Leanne. She helped us sell our Seattle condo to a first time buyer, the sale was very smooth. She's efficient & professional, we will definitely use her again.
JON & MAY (Kirkland & Sammamish): Leanne was incredibly helpful, walking us through the entire process, making our sale and purchase easy in this crazy market. The service to our family was beyond expectations.
ERNIE (Redmond Condo): Supportive and helpful from beginning to end. Brought signing papers to me, helped me with the transition to my new house.
KIM & CHRIS (Redmond) We were referred to Leanne by a friend who is also a Windermere agent. We were completely satisfied with everything Leanne did for us, and would recommend her to anyone. Did she do anything to exceed our expectations? Yes! She was especially creative helping us stage and prep our half-finished remodeled home.
MIKE and TINA (Whidbey Island) We were completely satisfied with the service we received from Leanne, and would recommend her to anyone. Our sale took over a year to complete and Leanne stayed on top of the details of everything while my wife and I were living in Florida. We couldn't have asked for anything more!
LAUREL (Seattle/First Hill) Thanks Leanne! Sorry, I was on the light rail when you called. I couldn't be happier with this deal. I sincerely appreciate your partnership!
HUA CHEE and YU-CHIEN (Kirkland) We were recommended to Leanne by another real estate broker. We were completely happy with Leanne's service!
MIKE and MARIA, (Whidbey land) We were completely satisfied with Leanne's work, definitely would use her services again. She made the closing process seamless and easy!! Everything was excellent!
Karen (Randle, Lewis County house) I called the Bellevue Windermere Service division of Windermere, looking for an agent to represent me, who could fit my particular needs. I was referred to Leanne, who was very responsive to my ideas and requests. Leanne exceeded my expectations!
JOSEPH G (Seattle Condo plus a Whidbey House). I live in Atlanta, Georgia, but recently inherited two properties in Washington state (one on Whidbey island, and another in Seattle).
I needed an appraisal of each property done, and then I needed to find someone who could sell them. Because the properties were in two very different communities, I thought it was going to have to find two realtors. When i got the referral to Leanne (from a banker I was doing some business with on Whidbey), however, she assured me that she did work in Seattle and on the island. Dealing with one person was easier for me than dealing with two (especially from across country), so I decided to give Leanne a chance.
The strategy for each place was different. The one in Seattle was in a hotter market and was snapped up pretty quickly. The one in Whidbey was slower to go - but Leanne kept holding open houses, and got me to hang in there and keep from lowering the price too much when I was worrying about still having the property after Summer was over.
Leanne took great photos, and also helped organize getting rid of stuff that the buyers didn't want. She had a cleaning person who was able to thoroughly clean both places, and generally took care of a lot of the back-end stuff that I wasn't able to do easily. I feel like I really lucked out by finding Leanne. She helped me get the full value from the homes that she sold for me, and I would work with her again if I ever found myself in a similar circumstance.
ZACH & KELSEY (Renton): Fantastic, Leanne really took the time to do research and follow up with any questions Kelsey and I had. She really cared about us and our experience in each process. Knowledge about the entire selling/buying experience. The assertiveness and passion she had for our experience and to make sure the other agent was doing it correctly was great. Leanne really teaches her clients. She was perfect, We will be referring her to friends and will reach out again when we decide to buy/sell again.
DAN & KARIN, (Seattle house & Bothell house & Seattle condo): We've worked with Leanne before, and value her practical advice. She got our Seattle home sold smoothly, and helped us find our next home too. Our new home is great!
ANDERS & LAURA, and mom SUE (5 acres, Whidbey Island): We were completely satisfied. Leanne was very knowledgeable of the local scene, quick to respond. She gave us many referrals of locals to help in the future.
BOB & MARILYN, (Redmond): Thanks Leanne. This was a great adventure for us!
DARRELL & LINDA (Whidbey Island): We were completely satisfied and would use our broker again. Personal attention, good follow-through, good market knowledge. She even picked us up when our car broke down.
MEL & DEBORAH (Mukilteo and Whidbey Island): We were completely satisfied, the service was excellent - very supportive & knowledgeable in both our transactions.
ANDREW & GRACE (Seattle/Fremont and Whidbey Island: Leanne is an amazing person and broker. Her ability to guide us through our home search and eventual purchase with minimal stress, optimal education, and a well-rounded awareness of the facts was immensely appreciated. She went above and beyond for us in so many respects, notably: she accommodated our (sometimes too) busy professional and social calendars, she went the extra mile to keep costs for inspections and the like in check, she answered any and all questions thoughtfully, promptly, and cheerfully.
SYLVIA (Renton/Kennydale): Leanne was my agent years ago when I bought my waterfront condo on Lake Washington. She did a fabulous job, especially following through with problem situations. She was on top of everything the whole way through the process.
RAJESH & PADMINI (Bellevue): Leanne is very knowledge about the local area and did an awesome job in guiding us through the entire purchase process. She understood our needs and constraints well. She looked out for our best interests . We intend to use Leanne again when needed.
PATTI (Bellevue): Leanne was practical about how to sell and stage the house. The service was precisely what I wanted and needed. I didn't have to redo my house and it sold in a week.
STEVE & ERIN (Whidbey Island): Leanne was a huge asset in finding our lovely Whidbey Island property. She was the most responsive of the agents I contacted. She was extremely knowledgeable about Whidbey Island properties, requirements on the island, people to contact to find out information, and the process. It was a difficult negotiation and without Leanne's support, knowledge and good judgment we probably wouldn't have succeeded. We never felt pushed or rushed. As a result, we are thrilled with our little waterfront cabin. Leanne has become a friend and a person we rely on for input, insights and references on the island. Thank you, Leanne!
RICHARD & MOLLY (Edmonds): The paperwork is all in, and the money is in our bank, so apparently we have actually sold the house! Having a real estate agent that worked at selling the house as opposed to waiting for the house to sell, made all the difference. We are glad that you were so enthusiastic, helpful and eager.
JANE (Langley): Service was excellent. Leanne was willing to do everything possible to get what I needed and get the transaction closed. Returned calls and emails almost immediately - no question too small.
RACHEL & JOHN (Bothell): I am now dealing with another agent in my new town of Tucson, who is competent but not nearly as good as my Windermere agent, Leanne Finlay. I was most impressed with her knowledge, candor and professionalism. I appreciate also that Windermere supports various charities through The Windermere Foundation.
CAROL and RON: (Clinton) I was so fortunate to work with Leanne Finlay. She was referred to us by someone who attended the estate sale from my mothers Whidbey home. We lived 2 hours away from the home, and I really do think if it weren't for Leanne, we would still have an unsold house. She did far more for us than we ever could have expected.
NOREEN (Richmond Beach/Shoreline): Leanne Finlay did an awesome job. I've had experience several times w/agents. This time was great. She LISTENED -- showed me what I asked for & could afford. I will recommend her to others.
CATHY & GARY (Seattle/Broadview): Leanne, this is just a note to let you know quite belatedly that Gary & I appreciate all of your efforts on our behalf in the selling of our home. You did a fabulous job for us, and we appreciate your work very much.
STEVE & MELISSA (Redmond & Auburn): Excellent. Leanne Finlay is an extremely patient person who had our best interests in mind.
HARRIETTE (Bellevue & Fall City): I was VERY pleased, as were my family members. Leanne was very professional, she successfully sold our previous home. She was most helpful in negotiating a number of matters for us. I will gladly recommend her to my friends who will very soon be moving to smaller/retirement facilities.
WILL & ALLIE (Seattle): Thank you so much for your many hours of driving, emails & enthusiasm. Your professionalism, fantastic insights (we still cannot forget the VERY first home we saw w/you & thought we could "fix it"), and calm assurances made the entire purchase process a dream!
LAURA (Renton & Whidbey Island): Leanne helped me find a fantastic home for under $300,000 on South Whidbey Island. I love the setting and the house, and the fact that I see deer in my yard nearly every day.
Cathy (Bellevue & Seattle): 2 years ago I listed my Bellevue home with Leanne and was so impressed with her work on that, that I called her again for my purchase in Seattle.
JIM (Clinton): Her service was tops. She was always available to share what was going on with me and worked tirelessly on my behalf. I believe Leanne's honesty and sense of fair-dealings forms her core personality. She's very personable and can carry out negotiations in a non-confrontational manner. She helped me get through the ups and downs of creating a deal and always seemed to know what to say and when to say it. I am sure that comes with her long experience as a Realtor.
REUBEN & JEN (Bothell): We love being there already, even though we haven't finished moving. We have met a few of the neighbors even. Nancy makes great chocolate cake). We really enjoyed working with you and trying to absorb the wealth of information you have to offer. Thanks again for everything. We'll be in touch soon.
TOM (Seattle): Excellent strategist. Knowledgeable about the transaction.
MAGNUS & HEATHER (Bellevue & Bellevue): Leanne did a great job in both the purchase of our new home and the sale of our old home.
VISHAL & GAYATRI (Redmond): Very professional, timely, courteous, educational & guiding. In the midst of a turbulent closing, she stood by us; her support meant a lot.
JIM & CHRISTINE (Seattle - 3 times!): Excellent service, she not only helped us get the house we wanted, but helped us not buy the wrong house. Leanne was "the voice of reason".
DEBBIE & KEVIN (Whidbey Island): Our Whidbey place is perfect!
BRUCE (Whidbey Island): Bravo!
RIK & LEWJEAN H (Seattle): Efficient, friendly, effective.
AMY & DWIGHT(Greenlake/Seattle): We want to thank you for all your professional expertise and personal warmth you shared with us, as our agent. You did a great job of advising and encouraging us as we readied our home of 30+ years for sale. You did an outstanding job of: staging our home, printing fliers, setting up the computer site, and running the open houses. When we had more than one bid, you expertly assisted us through that process and in all the paperwork that followed. Leanne, we appreciate your job well done, as well as the extra touches. We've already highly recommended you to others and will continue to do so.
MICHAEL & TOMMY (Seattle/Ballard & Seattle/North Beach): I was referred to Leanne by an independent real estate consultant. Leanne is a great agent!
RICK M. & JENNIFER K. (Magnolia/Seattle): Our agent was experienced and knowledgeable formost. She was able to understand our sometimes changing and hard-to-define desires in order to give us informed and appropriate recommendations for each property considered.
DEBBIE & JEFF (Seattle): Leanne Finlay was excellent; just soft enough to allow for trusting communication & hard enough that we knew we had a hard-ball professional if that was necessary. She was smooth!
LES (Seattle): The experience of working with Leanne was very good. She made a difficult situation during difficult times go far better than I had hoped. If ever again I need to sell a home, I would go back to Leanne.
SANDRA and PAUL (Seattle): I got to know my sellers well, and they told me several times that even though Leanne was my agent and not theirs, they appreciated the professionalism Leanne brought to the transaction. I was impressed they noticed!
MARCUS & LISA (Bothell): (buyer and seller) Leanne Finlay was great to work with: responsive, knowlegable, a pleasure.
EDIE & BRIAN (Arboretum/Seattle): Our house felt like home from the first day, thanks!
