It’s time to take the first step toward a more secure future. Whether you’re looking for your forever home or you’re investing in real estate for the financial benefits, we can help you find the right property and complete your journey on favorable terms — even in Seattle’s hectic housing market.

We invest our time by learning to see real estate through your eyes. We study the specific requirements and intangible drivers that are important to you and then implement plans to identify, evaluate, and purchase the right properties, both listed and unlisted, in any market.

We bought our home with Mike and Mark in an aggressive market nearly 6 years ago. WE sold and closed on our home in less than a month from listing. They are communicative, smart, supportive AND honest. I can’t recommend them enough!”
