YOUR STORY IS OUR STORY.

The Callahans One Club House Lane

We cannot begin to express how impressed we are with your outstanding knowledge, professionalism, and dedication to selling our home. From the first meeting through closing, you went above and beyond to provide continuous and prompt communication, multiple market analyses, and candid, honest advice. The entire process was smooth and comfortable, and we could easily trust you to take care of everything for us.

In addition to being exceptional realtors, your kind and thoughtful attitude made us feel like we were working with close friends who truly cared about our home and our family. You are such an attentive, personable, and intelligent team, we cannot imagine a better experience. We are so grateful for all your hard work and look forward to working with you while we look for our new home.

Best,

The Odiorne's from Bothell

After another broker tried unsuccessfully to find a home that met our needs in Bothell, we were fortunate to find Lani and Mike through their website. They listened carefully to our needs and preferences, worked closely with us to develop a list of likely properties, and in less than a week found exactly what we were looking for, Wow do these two know the area well. They represented us extremely well in the negotiations and were successful in putting together a deal far better than we had hoped for. We have bought and sold over six homes in our life and worked with many brokers. Never have we encountered anyone who we would recommend more highly than we do Lani and Mike.

You both truly exceeded our expectations!

"When we placed out house on the market with you, there was one thing that was apparent to us that filled us with great comfort and confidence from the beginning of our relationship to the present time; that you were both committed to us and our requirements as though we were family. As a service, it just doesn't get better than that. In all, we couldn't be more pleased with your professional and personal service to us in our time of need. You both truly exceeded our expectations!

While we hope that we are now settled in our new home, rest assured that is we or any of our friends or family need such services in the future that you two will have our highest recommendation." ~Joe & Millie Johnson

We expected them to very competent-and they are.

"We chose Michael West and Leilanin McCormick to sell our home because we knew that they had an established track record of success in out neighborhood of One Club House Lane in Harbour Pointe. We expected them to very competent-and they are. What suprised us is how likeable they are as individuals and how hard working and dedicated they were to our home sale - seemingly at times to work around the clock in our behalf. Most importantly to us is that they are highly ethical and trustworthy. In a few short weeks we have come to trust them to negotiate in our behalf, knowing that they keep our best interest as their first priority."

We would highly recommend you to everyone we know.

"It was such a pleasure working with you to sell our home. We appreciate your profesionalism. It is rare to find people who truly love what they do and it really showed with the time and attention to detail that we received from you.

It was truly a painless experience. You were very helpful in finalizing the deal. Not only was it fast, but we received quite a bit more than asking price.

We really appreciate the fact that you give back to the community. The Elementary School PTA appreciated the check they received from you. It is a wonderful program to have.

We would highly recommend you to everyone we know. You certainly would have our repeat business!" ~Tom & Terri Black

Mike and Lani were at all times the epitome of professionalism.

"Mike and Lani were at all times the epitome of professionalism. They were always there when promised and returned our calls immediately. They exceeded our expectations and believe me, our bar is set very high! Without question, we would recommend Mike and Lani to everyone we know. " ~Doug & Patricia Wisman

We decided to choose Lani and Mike after seeing only their SOLD signs.

"In contemplating when/if to sell our home, we decided to choose Lani and Mike after seeing only their SOLD signs. They came to our house completely prepared with a professional and realistic plan. They sold our Mukilteo home in four months during a time when nothing else did in OneClubhouse Lane. Their personable business approach and creative suggestions proved invaluable during the process. Mike's plethera of ideas and Lani's sensible organization make a perfect combination for success. ~Greg & Diane Lind

On a five star rating system, I would give Mike West and Lani McCormick -West ten stars.

On a five star rating system, I would give Mike West and Lani McCormick -West ten stars. They were upfront in what we needed to do to make our house more sellable, and very honest in setting our expectations on what we should expect for a selling price in a challenging and competitive market. In our case they acted as both the buyers and sellers agent, and they negotiated this potentially difficult assignment in a friendly and professional manner that left both the seller and buyer completely satisfied.

Our selling saga began in the fall of 2009, when we enlisted the services of what we believed to be a very successful and competent local agent to sell our home. Much to our dismay, the house languished on the market for over a year without even one offer.

In the fall of 2010 our older son put his house on the market, and chose Mike and Lani as his agents. In less than a week he had an offer at a very good price, which culminated in a quick sale. This served a wake-up call for us, as his house was less than half a mile from ours and in the same development.

After taking our house off the market for the winter, we re-listed in March 2011 using Mike and Lani as our agents. The marketing approach used by Mike and Lani was phenomenal. The staging, the pictures, the web site, the communication, and the cooperation were all first rate. Best of all, it worked. In less than two weeks we had an offer that resulted in a sale. We were amazed and very pleased!!

If you are looking for a real estate agent as either a buyer or a seller, we highly recommend Mike West and Lani McCormick-West. You will not be disappointed. ~Bill & Sally Raker ~ Picnic Point

From that first meeting to the final day of the sale, Mike and Leilani were amazing.

We initially worked with another reputable agent to sell our home. The house was on the market for over a year, with very little buyer interest. We decided to take it off the market and search for another agent with more experience in our neighborhood. All signs pointed to Mike and Leilani. I'm an engineer and rely on data for much of my day to day work. During our first meeting, Mike blew me away with his grasp of the local housing market and had provided very good insight into upcoming trends. We were sold from that point on. From that first meeting to the final day of the sale, Mike and Leilani were amazing. Selling a house involves mastering every step of the process and as a team they have done it. The house was staged beautifully, the pictures were gorgeous, they provided constant status, and, most importantly, we received an offer within the first week. Its not always easy from that point on, but Mike and Leilani guided us masterfully through the final steps of the process, making sure all our needs were met. I highly recommend anyone looking to buy or sell in the area speak with Mike and Leilani. Thank you very much. ~Thanks, Jason Bond ~ Mukilteo

Our home was sold and closed within a month!

We would high recommend Mike West and Lani McCormick as real estate professionals if you considering buying or selling a home. We listed our home with Mike and Lani in October 2010 and our home was sold and closed within a month! We attribute our success to Mike and Lani who guided us through the process of preparing and staging our home for market, marketing our home, and helping us navigate through the negotiations associated with the offer acceptance and home inspection.

Contracting with Mike and Lani to sell our home was the best thing we could have done. Mike and Lani met with us even before we made our final decision to sell to help us evaluate the real estate market and to identify what could be done with our home to make it more marketable. Once we made the decision to sell, Mike and Lani helped us stage our home and hired a professional photographer to take pictures of our home. As a result of these preparations, the beautiful color fliers and effective marketing of our home, we had multiple viewings and an offer within a week! Mike and Lani continued to support us through the process of making a counter offer to the prospective buyers, negotiating through the items identified in the home inspection and even purchasing at their own cost, a home warranty for the buyers to seal the purchase with the buyers!

Mike and Lani are truly professional, knowledgeable and responsive! We wholeheartedly recommend their services! ~Brian and Jane Raker

We got multiple offers within days of listing our home and received more than listing price.

We just sold our house in Bothell in September 2012 with the help of Mike and Lani. We got multiple offer after three days of listing, closed the transaction smoothly in a month.

We felt if we had not have Mike and Lani as the agent, we would not be able to sell the house at such a satisfactory price and without much difficulty and headache. Experts said, when selling a home, listing at the right price is 90% of the sale, and in our case, it's definitely true. Because of Mike and Lani's strong knowledge of the market, and thorough market analysis, the house was listed at just the right price to attract a lot of potential buyers. We feel Mike's market analysis was systematic, scientific and supported by various statistics. He researched the market from different perspective, and tracked the market trend, collected various real estate data, so when they presented their market analysis to us, we had no doubt that they would sell our house with the right price.

Besides their strong knowledge of the real estate market, they also have very strong internet presentation. Their listings get pushed beyond the usual real estate websites, the photos of the house and the layout of the flyer for the listing look clear and nice, attractive to web viewers. For each listing, Lani would create a individual website for better presentation of the property. In the world of internet, their internet savvy make them stand out as stronger real estate agents.

The results, we got multiple offers within days of listing our home and received more than listing price.

Mike's experience in general construction was very valuable to us. After home inspection, our buyer had requested quite a few repair, Mike and Lani not only provided information of various repair services, but even paid for some of the repair. They are incredible!

Overall, we think Mike and Lani are outstanding listing agent. We would recommend them to our friends and family, and use them again.

Thanks! ~David & Zhen Brumley, Paloma

Everything closed on time and we were very happy with our overall relationship.

We enlisted Mike and Lani West to sell our Mukilteo house after we had a meeting with them. We found them on the internet and were very pleased with the presentation that they had on it. We set up a meeting and they laid out their ideas and methods for listing and selling our home and it was well thought out. They had great ideas and Lani was very good at staging recommendations. They gave us a detailed market analysis of which seemed very in depth and showed their comprehension of the Mukilteo market. They then had a professional photographer take pictures of our house and then reproduced these pictures onto a full color flyer. It was awesome. We actually kept some of them just to remind us of our house.

Mike had a strategy with the sale of our house and we let them go with it since they were the professionals at this. It resulted in more than one offer and as a result we were able to select for ourselves the best one for us.

Mike and Lani were very helpful in the contract negotiations and at all times, represented us in a very professional way. Everything closed on time and we were very happy with our overall relationship that we have established with them.

We highly recommend them and were very satisfied with them. ~Vic and Louanne Bursell. Former Mukilteo Residents

The entire process was smooth and comfortable.

We cannot begin to express how impressed we are with your outstanding knowledge, professionalism, and dedication to selling our home. From the first meeting through closing, you went above and beyond to provide continuous and prompt communication, multiple market analyses, and candid, honest advice. The entire process was smooth and comfortable, and we could easily trust you to take care of everything for us.

In addition to being exceptional realtors, your kind and thoughtful attitude made us feel like we were working with close friends who truly cared about our home and our family. You are such an attentive, personable, and intelligent team, we cannot imagine a better experience. We are so grateful for all your hard work and look forward to working with you while we look for our new home. ~Conrad and Karla Callahan, One Club House Lane, Mukilteo

You two rate head and shoulders above any realtor we have dealt with.

Just a note to thank you for your very personable and professional assistance in the sale of our home in Windward Bluff.

Comparing to over the past years when we have sold previous homes, you two rate head and shoulders above any realtor we have dealt with. You, as a team, were so knowledgeable in every detail of selling a house including: Staging the home, knowing local market conditions, presenting the home to many marketing venues, construction assistance, financial advisement and on and on.

You did this in a period of difficult marketing and financial conditions. You even rescued us when we were locked out.

You were more that realtors, but partners in our goal, and along the way, we became good friends. For all these things, we thank you. You are number one in our book. We wish you the best in the coming years. ~R.P. (Buster) and Jo Ann Crook, One Club House Lane, Mukilteo WA

We were very fortunate to have Mike and Lani represent us.

We were very fortunate to have Mike and Lani represent us with the sale of our home in One Club House Lane, after an entire unsuccessful year with another realtor. They themselves, had shown our home a couple of times, and they were always together, and impressed us as a very competent and caring duo.

Sitting down with us, and going over a very thorough market analysis and marketing plan for selling our home, with a few changes to the house, such as some paint and a few staging ideas, they made us completely comfortable that it would sell immediately. It did. Their strategic approach to the whole matter, and their ability to "see" just exactly what needed to be different, was refreshing and reassuring. So thank you very much Mike and Lani! ~Deb and Don Peterson ~Mukilteo

Take care of YOUR best interest first by hiring Michael West and Leilani McCormick.

I highly recommend Michael West and Leilani McCormick as the top real estate sales team in the greater Harbour Pointe area. When I say top real estate team, I mean tops in knowledge, professionalism, client service, and most importantly, getting positive results! I first met Mike West at one of his open houses. I had talked to literally dozens of agents in Mukilteo before meeting Mike, and he was the only one that I felt comfortable with right away. Both Mike and Lani have the rare ability to make almost anyone feel at ease. Combining their superior knowledge of the local market, professional demeanor, precise marketing plan, common sense approach, and obvious love for their work, Mike and Lani gave us the confidence that we could sell our home at a fair price even in a down market.

When you meet Mike and Lani, it is clear they know the local real estate market exceptionally well. It is clear they know current market trends, they have a tested marketing strategy, and they have a proven track record. We knew from the beginning Mike and Lani would work hard for us and achieve a successful outcome. Just as importantly, Mike and Lani relieved our anxiety, turning a stressful situation into a relatively carefree and easy process.

Mike and Lani offered practical advice on what needed to be fixed or upgraded to properly market our house and get the maximum sale price. Not only did they identify what needed to be done, they helped us get the work completed quickly. Properly staging your house is also a key factor in successfully selling your home. Unlike other agents, Mike and Lani staged our house themselves, using a combination of their furniture and household accessories, and some of ours. Other agents quoted an upfront staging cost of up to $5,000.00 for only 90 days of staging. Mike and Lani beautifully and effectively staged our home at a fraction of the cost to us.

Mike and Lani were always responsive to our telephone calls and emails, and cheerfully answered all of our questions. Because they live in the area, Mike and Lani were always available to do things that other agents would likely never even think of. For example, they checked our house daily, turning lights on and off for the best presentation, they offered to meet service people at the house when we were unavailable due to our work schedule, and on at least one occasion, Mike and Lani made sure our garbage cans got put out on garbage pickup day! Mike and Lani also produced the most incredible sales flyers that clearly maximized our home's sales potential. With amazing photography, our sales flyers appeared far superior to any other agent's flyers I had seen in the area.

I should also let you know that we had tried unsuccessfully to sell our Harbour Pointe home in 2007. Like most people, we have several friends or relatives who are real estate agents. Although many people call themselves real estate agents, few have the knowledge, business experience, marketing, and negotiating skill of Mike West and Lani McCormick. Our former agent was a friend who tried very hard to sell our home. Unfortunately, she lacked the experience and skill necessary in a very competitive down market. Our house was on the market over 450 days and never sold! Working together with Mike and Lani was like night and day. We realistically priced our home and received a great offer within 4 days! Based on our buyer, I am convinced that Mike and Lani actually sold our home to them, while other less experienced agents might have let our buyer walk away without further conversation.

Please consider our experience, and don't feel guilty about not hiring your friend, neighbor, soccer coach, or cousin to sell your home. Take care of YOUR best interest first by hiring Michael West and Leilani McCormick. ~MARTIN W. HODGES

We couldn't be more pleased with your professional and personal service to us in our time of need.

When we placed our house on the market with you, there was one thing that was apparent to us that filled us with great comfort and confidence from the beginning of our relationship to the present time; that you were both committed to us and our requirements as though we were family. As a service, it just doesn't get better than that. In all, we couldn't be more pleased with your professional and personal service to us in our time of need. You both truly exceeded our expectations!

While we hope that we are now settled in our new home, rest assured that if we or any of our friends or family need such services in the future that you two will have our highest recommendation. ~Joe & Millie Johnson, One Club House Lane, Mukilteo

You made selling my home so much easier for me!

Thanks to you I am moving to Colorado to be near my daughter and her family.

I knew after a previously listing my home with another agent and not having success, that I needed to do something different to realize getting my home sold. As I walked through the neighborhood, I noticed your signs, and the speed with which the For Sale sign had a SOLD. That's what I wanted. After contacting you and learning about your marketing strategy to get my home "out there", you then gave me advice on how to present my home in the best possible way to attract the perfect buyer.

Your attention to my questions and concerns was immediate, and you were always positive, which in turn kept me positive throughout the entire process. I had many more prospective buyers come through, due to your marketing, and had an offer within 2 months. You walked me through all the steps necessary to get the sale completed. And, your advice during negotiations was invaluable. Your help led to a successful contract and now the exciting new chapter in my life.

I have already told my friends about how amazing you two have been from day one and they in turn have told their friends.

Thank you so much for your professionalism and your friendly manner. You made selling my home, that I love, so much easier for me. You took all the worry out of it. ~Sheila Jordan

They made an impossible situation work!

Mike West and Lani McCormick are the most extraordinary agents with whom I have ever worked.

I lost my mother last year and through the most difficult and stressful time of my life selling my parents home, long distance in today's real estate market, with an attorney that went missing, Mike and Lani where there for me. These remarkable people went above and beyond as agents, they were friends. They held my hand through the entire process (sometimes literally). I have never known more honest and compassionate professionals. No matter what the circumstances they always had a smile, a kind word, and a solution. They made an impossible situation work! Simply put they are the best! ~Julie Kerr, Bothell

Our expectations were met to the highest standards.

Over the past 25 years we have moved four times within the King and Snohomish County area. When it came time to look for a new home in the Mulkilteo area, we researched the potential real estate agents specializing in this market. Our due diligence consistently discovered your services and experience. When we met, your presentation was both warm and professional. Within a short time we felt you each clearly understood the features specific to our requirements, and that you offered a confident approach to being able to provide several acceptable homes for our review. We appreciated your approach to presenting only homes within our expressed price range, as well as understanding the quality and styling necessary for our consideration. In short time, we were making an offer, and closing the purchase transaction. We found your knowledge of the area, its features, its neighborhood, and the overall handling of the documentation related to a real estate transaction in today's world extremely competent. We loved our new home.

Four years later we once again decided to relocate to a larger home. When the time came, we returned to Mike and Lani to handle the sale of our home. It proved interesting selling the same home they worked with us to buy; now representing us on the sale of our home; this time, in a much more complex and difficult marketplace. Our expectations were met at the highest standards. Within sixteen days of listing, we had an offer, and completed the our sale within thirty days of listing.

It was a pleasure working with individuals who understand the market, are knowledgeable of the new banking limitations, as well as all of the requirements that arise between the buyer and seller that need to be worked out in order to achieve and mutually acceptable outcome between the buyer and seller. Michael and Lani really do get it! We are pleased to offer our positive experience for your consideration. ~Robert and Dianne Klem

Don't waste time with anyone else!!

This is what Lou Farthing, Kamiak High School'ss Bookkeeper had to say about us when no one else could get her home sold:

I had been trying to sell my home since March 2007, after several Realtors, with no success, I decided to take the house off the market for the holiday season, for a break from the "Clean house syndrome!". The Christmas crazyness was over, and I was going through my mail, when I saw a card from 2 very chipper Realtors saying "We sell all of our listings in the Harbour Pointe area-no one knows this area better than us". I honestly was going to throw it away, but the words on the card keep repeating in my brain...We know the Harbour Pointe area!

So I thought what the heck....I'd give them a try! BEST DECISION I ever made regarding getting my home sold! Mike and Lani know their market, they completely understand what it takes to get a house sold in this awful housing market. While there were times I didn't like what they suggested (It either meant I was going to have to take a lower price or fix one more thing in the house) I knew they were suggesting it because that is what I had to do to make it happen. Mike and Lani felt like friends whose main objective was to help me get my house sold and for the best price we could get that the market would bare. Mike and Lani's professionalism is beyond reproach. They know their stuff.

I am so glad I made that call to them. Bottom line.....I HIGHLY RECOMMEND MIKE WEST AND LEILANI McCORMICK TO ANYONE looking to sell their home in 2010. Why....because they are the last Realtors they'll have to use....because they make it happen! Don't waste time with anyone else!! ~Lou farthing-Kamiak High School Bookkeeper

It was clear to us that Michael's extensive market data was accurate and up-to-data.

Below is my full testimonial I would like others to see.

Michael West and Leilani McCormick team is the best real estate team we have worked with. They always made us feel like we were their top priority. When we relocated to another state we needed to sell our home. We interviewed many real estate agents, but when we met Michal West team we distinctly saw the professionalism in the approach to effectively market and sell our home. He was honest with us about the actual sale price of our home and even though other agents told us higher price, it was clear to us that Michael's extensive market data was accurate and up-to-data. He utilized many tools to successfully market our home and effectively staged our home. In addition to that they had a professional photographer to take pictures. We had our first offer in 2 weeks and sold the home in about 60 days.

Our past experiences with other realtors were disappointing- they didn't protect our interests, or failed to help us when the going got tough. Michael and his team were there 100% the whole time, looking out for our interests, ensuring a smooth negotiation, and helping us with last minute complications. We felt they earned their commission many times over. ~Max and Antonina Kislyak, 3330 189th PL SE Bothell, WA 98012

Mike and Leilani went above and beyond for us.

We had our One Club House Lane home listed recently with another broker for six months and we where very disappointed with the lack of communication and follow up during this time. When the listing expired the agent did not even contact us to let us know. What a complete disappointment and waste of time and money in a declining market.

We then found Mike and Leilani and could not have been happier; they were so professional in all that they do. They had our home sold in a matter of 21 days!. What a difference the right realtors make!

Mike and Leilani went above and beyond for us. We were out of town when the sale was going through and they went over to the home and found a pipe had broke (water was everywhere). They called the right people to take care of all the clean-up and repairs and told us not to worry. Leilani even did the laundry of all the wet towels from mopping everything up!

When it came to having to do anything in regards to the inspection, they (once again) just took care of everything themselves. They made everything as good as they could under the circumstances.

Mike and Leilani are truly caring professionals. We have bought and sold many homes in Washington, Whistler (Canada) and California. Never before have we encountered anyone who we would recommend more highly and with complete confidence than we do Mike and Leilani.

We look forward to working with them again. ~Brett & Tina Olson, 6108 Bayview Dr., One Club House Lane, Mukilteo

They KNOW WHAT THEIR DOING!

My name is Cathy Ortiz. My husband, David Ortiz and I had our home on the market for about 2 years. starting when the market was not so bad until now. The other agents we hired didn't do squat for us, hardly any advertising, no staging, and no open houses. And we hardly ever heard from them. What a waste of time. The market was also horrible so that didn't help us either.

In trying to replace our previous real estate agent, we had interviewed 4-6 new agents, none of which we where happy with. He suggested getting in touch with Mike West again. Mike had sold our previous home So, we did. When the contract with previous Real estate person had expired we brought Mike West and Lani McCormick on board. There was a trust and a history there between all of us.

They came in and assessed the house. After looking it over and coming up with a game plan, they came in, painted certain walls, brought in $6,000.00 (no less) worth of staging furniture. Completely staged our home and then had it professionally photographed which then made for amazing marketing materials and a unforgettable on line presence. They were in contact with us about every 2-3 days. I emailed Mike to death (I'm a typer). He and Lani are excellent at sizing up the market and the condition of your house, the neighborhood, and the market. In other words , the big picture. Final result they SOLD our home in 65 days for full price! They also get very in tune with your personality types to know how to make things happen and being kind and ethical at the same time. They are also providing us with a truck they have to move out of the house for FREE. They have done everything they possibly could to help us with this move in a terrible economy and real estate market.

I could go on and on, but if you work with them you will see for yourself, they KNOW WHAT THEIR DOING and you have some real friendly, responsible, professionals in your court. They walk the talk.

So, if you're considering using them as Real Estate agents you're in for a treat, a relief and can feel confident that they will take care of you.

As you can tell, I highly recommend them! ~Cathy Ortiz

Working with Mike and Lani was a pleasure!

Working with Mike and Lani was a pleasure! From our first meeting, many months before we listed our house, to the day of closing, they were helpful in ways we never even expected. In helping us to decide when to sell our house, they provided concrete information (not just their impressions) about the sales prices of comparable homes as well as trends over time. They gave us reams of advice about renovations and repairs that we should have completed before the sale, including recommendations for companies that could provide high-quality results for a reasonable price.

Throughout the process, we were impressed with Mike and Lani's professionalism and their understanding of the housing market from both the buyer's and seller's point of view. They clearly know our neighborhood and stay up to date with sales trends. They are not afraid of using technology to collect information and share it with their clients. When we listed our house for sale, Mike and Lani gave us advice about how to make everything as appealing as possible to potential buyers and communicated with us promptly whenever they received feedback about the house.

After we accepted a buyer's offer, Mike and Lani continued to work closely with us to make sure that all the details were taken care of before the closing date. Contacting them by phone or email was easy, and we always got a prompt response, even when the hour was late.

We would not hesitate to recommend Mike and Lani to anyone getting ready to sell their house or even just starting to think about it. We knew that selling a house is a complicated process, but Mike and Lani took care of many of the details for us. We were confident that Mike and Lani's expertise would let us sell our house quickly and for a good price, and that is exactly what happened. ~Bill and Charlotte Pratt, Mukilteo Wa.

Mike and Lani held open houses and worked hard to find a buyer.

Mike West and Lani McCormick were our real estate agents during our move less then 2 years ago. We met Mike during an open house and started the process in the month of August 2007. Mike and Lani were with us almost daily from that point until January of 2008 when our existing home sold. Moving can be a challenge and we had been in our house for 25 years, had raised our kids and we needed a real estate agent that would be patient, thorough and effective. We got all of that with Mike and Lani. They represented us very well during a difficult negotiation to buy the new house. They were professional and provided excellent guidance. They provided us with good references when it came to work that needed to be done before we could move in. Similarly, we were trying to sell our existing home in a declining market. Mike and Lani held open houses and worked hard to find a buyer. They advised us on current market pricing and we were able to sell the house successfully in a difficult market. They are top notch and I would certainly work with them again if I need real estate assistance. ~Steve Anderson ~ Mill Creek, Director of Marketing, Ultrasound, Philips Healthcare, Office 425-487-7296, Cell 425-210-1481

There is no one else like Mike and Lani, they are the best of the best.

Mike and Lani are unbelievable!!! they are extremely helpful, competant, trustworthy, hopeful, efficient, amazing, professional... we cannot say enough wonderful things about them. when they said they sell 99% of the homes they list in less than 2 months, we were a little doubtful, but it happened. we sold our home and they helped us purchase our dream home. they are outstanding. we highly recommend them to everyone who needs to sell a home in this market, they will make it happen. they will also help you find and purchase your dream home. there is no one else like Mike and Lani, they are the best of the best. ~Andrew and Maryrose, Edmonds, WA

Mike and Lani took exceptional care to understand our requirements and desires.

From our first contact with Mike and Leilani, we knew this was the team we needed to guide us through the many intricacies that are commonly encountered during the real estate transaction processes. They proceeded to develop a targeted, comprehensive, marketing plan. As a result, we had a superior marketing package to use that resulted in a full price offer in just 4 Days! This step is critical to a successful sale outcome. In our case, this package proved to be the key for our successful sale and subsequent move.

We also selected Mike and Leilani to represent us in the purchase of our new home here in Mukilteo that also happened to be listed by Mike & Lani. This decision proved to be very beneficial to us as it provided us with a seamless transaction sequence.

As we progressed through our sale-purchase activities, Mike and Lani took exceptional care to understand our requirements and desires. From the time of our first meeting they remained very responsive and were always readily available to address our concerns.

Mike and Lani have a great deal of experience with real estate sales transactions in the Mukilteo area. They have remained the top Mukilteo real estate sales team for several years. They were exceptionally skilled at navigating through the many variable options, obstacles and potential delays we encountered. We found them to be very creative and forward thinking throughout our sales and purchase. Again, these talents proved to be a great benefit to us.

During our careers, we have moved several times. Without a doubt, we find Michael and Leilani to be the best broker-agents we have ever had the opportunity and pleasure to work with. We highly recommend them to any persons interested in buying and/or selling their home. ~Steve and June Thomas, Mukilteo
