Claire was recommended to us by some friends who bought a house about two years ago. We couldn't have been happier with Claire's service. She quickly ascertained what qualities we were looking for in a house and helped us find many great homes to tour. She was able to successfully guide us through to closing during a tough seller's market with heavy competition on almost every home we looked at. We emailed and spoke daily, and [we] felt well taken care of throughout every step of the process. Cl...
Your availability to me to answer questions or recommend vendors was outstanding. I needed a lot of advisement about how to get the house ready for putting on the market and you always knew what to do, who to call, when to pay, how to schedule it, etc. It was like having the best personal assistant helping to organize the whole process for me so I could do what I needed to do to get the house ready to sell. I never felt like I could not speak my mind or ask any question, no matter how small or h...
Claire, your warmth and sincere interest in our house and situation was clear from the beginning when we met, and continued throughout the process, so foreign to us, you made the process clear and manageable. You stepped in above and beyond the call of duty so many times to maximize the potential of our property and navigate the challenges. Throughout, you remained warm yet professional. I have already recommended you to others who may call on you in the future and will continue to sing your pra...
I was blown away by the level of service Claire and Christine offered. Their knowledge and attention to detail is second to none! Thanks to them our home buying experience seamless, easy, and stress free!
Claire worked patiently with us for over a year to find the house that met our needs. She quickly understood our interests and showed us an appropriate cross section of properties. She was tireless in shepherding us through the purchase process, and extremely professional in all of its aspects. We not only recommend her highly, but as a design professional, believe her to be one of the best agents we have ever worked with.
I really can't think of anything more or better that you could have done for us, Claire! You are fantastic.
We trusted Claire and we're glad we did! We would recommend her to close friends and family. She was a terrific guide and we consider the process and sale a success. Thank you!
Thank you for making the whole process of selling my home so problem-free. All of your advice, experience and support helped reduce the stress especially during this difficult time in my life. You two compliment each other and make a great team. Don't change anything! Thanks again!
You did an awesome job on describing the place and laying out the info! I'm so glad we are working with you!
Words can't express how grateful we are for your kindness and generosity. We are so thankful to know you as our realtor and friend. Couldn't have our beautiful house if not for you. Thank you again and cheers to a job well done!
Claire is a hustler who will go the extra mile...
Claire was an outstanding agent. She anticipated every detail, was available whenever she was needed, and provided clear and thorough communication throughout.
Please feel free to use us as references for future clients!
There is NO ONE quite like Claire and I could not more highly recommend her. From start to finish, Claire was there for me. As a first time home buyer, there were many things I was unfamiliar with and Claire guided me through the process with patience and expertise. Every step of the way was fantastic. I enjoyed the properties Claire selected as possibilities. She really stays on top of newly available locations and this makes a huge difference in grabbing the best of the best before anyone else...
Claire, you went above and beyond on my behalf. I was unsure of where I wanted to settle on the Kitsap Peninsula and you helped guide me with knowledge and kindness. I can't tell you just how much I appreciate the absolute ABOVE and BEYOND you went to help make my house in to my home. Meeting contractors, helping with estimates you did so much and I truly can't express how much it meant to me. I feel like not only a client but a friend!
Claire was great. Very knowledgeable and always available. She made buying and selling as easy process as it could be.
Thanks Claire, I woke up feeling pretty good this morning and have stopped worrying thanks to your constant encouragement.
....it has been so wonderful to have you representing us. Thank you for everything, mostly your insight, patience and kindness to both me and the sellers.
