Sold a Single Family home in 2016 in Lake Forest Park, WA
Thank you for working with us in the sale our Lake Forest Park home this past September. We appreciate your professionalism, knowledge, and efficiency as our real estate agent. You were so conscientious in all aspects of the sale (advertising, showing the house, conducting an "Open House" on the premises), that you sold it in a surprisingly short time. You did an outstanding job applying your knowledge of the LFP market area in various ways, including your market research for the listing price, and your efforts to identify and interact with prospective buyers and their agents. Your amazing customer service continued to support us as we proceeded with the purchase of a new home in East Wenatchee, which required a buyer’s agent in the Wenatchee area. Thank you for the referral through the Windermere Relocation Service. We value your advice and hard work throughout the process and would highly recommend you to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.

Ryan did a fantastic job! We were looking for a home large enough to accommodate the inlaws moving in. He sat down and listened to me, my wife and her parents. That's a lot of opinions, likes, and dislikes to take in! He jumped right in, looking for houses. When we found one that we though might work, he worked with the mortgage brokers to make sure we could be an offer in on short notice. We ended up getting the house. Great guy. Very thoughtful and listens to his clients needs.

We are so glad we chose Ryan to help us sell the house. In addition to being totally professional and on top of everything, he demonstrated a CALM that was really reassuring. Because of some personal family health issues and a life with "too many moving parts" I was often harried and definitely not calm. He just continued to walk and talk us through it all. He also was a great resource for services we needed, like movers, gardeners, etc. I would recommend Ryan to anyone looking to sell and I'm sure he would be just as helpful with potential buyers. -Marian and Paddy

Ryan stood by me patiently every step of the way, from start to finish. I was impressed by Ryan's responsiveness and his market survey that helped establish the value of the house and property, and he helped determine what upgrades would best do the job of giving the house and property maximum value in this spring 2015 market. Ryan put me in touch with an excellent staging company and when the house went on the market he dutifully scheduled open houses. The house sold for more than estimated. Ryan is bright and knowledgeable about the market and the process and if you want to sell your home in North Seattle then he can certainly do an excellent job for you! -David C.

Ryan is everything describe above, he was great to work with as well as made home search not frustrating. Ryan was patient with us and flexible with our sudden request to view a property and sometimes not just one but several, he was accommodating and manage to fit us in his schedule whether it was in between or after his appointments. He advise us of the pros and cons of some of the properties we were focusing on and guided us but did not dissuade us from pursuing them. Ryan was fun to work with, our search sometimes lead us to some of the funkiest properties and adventurous one(water view property without driveway) yet willing to climb his way up just to check it out for us. Ryan you are a trooper! and we are truly appreciative of all you have done for us. The best of all is finding us the home we are in now, Ryan directed us to this property before it was even listed and were so glad he did, it was unexpected and it met our requirements. He definitely impressed us with his professionalism in negotiating on our behalf and helped us with the inspection and in taking care of the issues. He made everything possible for us to close in timely manner.
Ryan it was fun, you are the best and if anyone would like hear more, we will be happy to share our experience with you.
Thanks a bunch and regards.

Ryan is a great professional with excellent knowledge of Lake Forest Park market where our home was located. He provided honest, realistic, and practical advice on the sale of our property.
Our home was an estate sale and needed various maintenance issues addressed. Ryan really helped us prioritize these issues and also helped arrange services. We appreciated his guidance on pricing; other agents were prone to overstate what price was achievable only to later recommend price reductions. Ryan's approach to pricing advice was much more honest and based on other properties on market or recently sold.
Our listing started out a bit slow (I think mainly due to bad timing in late October), however, Ryan had good follow-though with those who visited home. Showings picked-up after 1-2 weeks on market. In the end, we ended up with 2 interest buyers and bidding process. This resulted in getting slightly higher than our asking price. We had 28 total days on market.
Overall, we were very pleased with our results and the level of service Ryan provided. Highly recommend.

Ryan worked with me over several months to both sell and buy a new home in this challenging market. Communication is a strong point and he was with me every step of the way. He takes time to listen and tailor the search to what his client needs/wants. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for professional, responsive and friendly service. -Nancy M.

From our first meeting with Ryan we found him helpful, courteous and very knowledgeable. He walked through our home and gave us honest feedback on what we should and should not do to sell the house for the price we wanted. He kept us up to date on all inquiries and other agent's feedback on the house. Through Ryan we were able to sell the house for the full asking price in less than one month. I would recommend Ryan to anyone looking to sell or buy a home, you will not be disappointed. -Chris T.

We listed our home in Lake Forest Park with Ryan after a year of intense looking for a smaller house/lot with him. He was great about sending us listings and happy to take us into any of the houses we wanted to see. We're picky, so he spent a lot of time with us! When we (finally) found a home we wanted to buy, he seamlessly guided us through the offer-to-purchase process, and had our house of twenty-three years on the market within two weeks of our offer being accepted. He was tireless in his attention to us during the selling process, too--responsive to our e-mails and phone calls, stopping by every few days to check on activity & to replenish brochures, holding regular open houses, and placing ongoing media ads. He sent us feedback from nearly every showing by MLS realtors. Our house sold without a glitch in the process, with every t crossed and i dotted, thanks to him. Ryan knows the north end (Shoreline, Kenmore, LFP) extremely well and is extremely well educated on the complexities of buying and selling homes. He is never pushy--lets his clients make up their own minds, but--when asked--has lots of good information to help with decision making. We would use him again! -Sara G.

I have never recommended a service with all 'perfect', but I feel that Ryan is well deserved of receiving the highest rating in all areas. He knows the area extensively. I was very impressed with his knowledge of the complete process - including all of the 'business' aspects of the sale. The seller, at best, was quite challenging, and Ryan kept communication positive & was definitely on top of his game!! He is very personable, calm & professional. I would always choose Ryan to be my real estate agent. -Barbara J.
