"Jim and Monte were excellent. For me, communication is KEY! I never felt ignored or that I didn't know what was going on. They were with me every step of the way. Selling my home also came with a divorce and they were sensitive to that as well, which I really appreciated. I didn't feel like just ..."
"From our first meeting, until the papers were signed, our experience was smooth and professional. Monte and Jim showed great care in their preparation, and their guidance led to a three-day listing before our condo sold at full price. We were kept up to date throughout the process, and they were ..."
"For first-time homebuyers, Jim and Monte are incredibly patient and helpful in elements beyond finding the appropriate house. They excel at communicating and explaining (in simple terms) the various forms and processes that are required in completing a real estate transaction. For busy professio..."
"It was truly a blessing to have been referred to Jim and Monte in the sell of my first home. They kept in touch with me over a year and a half on the Seattle housing market and gave me updated stats on sales in my home area. I was living in CA when I finally decided to sell, which was a bit worri..."
"I have purchased 2 homes with Jim and Monte and I had a great experience. Each time they referred me to a lender that they worked with; on each occasion, I had a different lender and both worked very hard to get me the best rate at the time. I loved that Monte would pick me up at work so that we ..."
"I made my first home purchase from Jim and Monte about 11 years ago. I've had a great experience working with them as they made my purchase very smooth and painless. They have such great expertise and they go the extra mile to make things happen. Their customer service is exceptional. After I pur..."
"I have known Jim and Monte for over a decade. They are full of insights, intuition, investigative know-how on the market, and home structures, and more. They bring a wide range of experience and true passion for their work to the job. I was nervous each time I made the leap into a home purchase, ..."
"Jim and Monte made it happen! We were relocating from Miami to Seattle, and not sure of neighborhoods and the local real estate market. These gentlemen were experts and provided options across a wide spectrum of locations. We'll forever be grateful for their honesty (sharing the pros and cons of ..."
"I was looking to purchase a house in the Ballard area, and my mortgage company recommended Jim and Monte as real estate agents.
In this competitive market, Jim and Monte were very helpful, helping me understand the current real estate market, and how get offers. Their insights on the home inspec..."
"We have known Jim and Monte for over a decade and have worked with them on numerous occasions. Each time they have been very responsive to our needs and have given us nothing but outstanding service. One of our purchases was a lot that we decided to split with our neighbor. As you can imagine it ..."

"Jim and Monte seem to have a magic touch to make sure both the buyer and the seller are happy! We have worked with Jim and Monte for 3 sales - the purchase of our first home, then the simultaneous sale of that home and purchase of our current home a few years later. During both purchases, Jim and..."
"Prior to meeting Jim and Monte, I was working through a passive Real Estate agent who believed that simply publishing my Capitol Hill Condo to the MLS and related sites would cause it to sell. After a couple of months of limited activity and no offers, I decided to switch gears and found Select S..."
"My wife and I were not first time home buyers, having purchased before when living in Alabama. But the market here in Washington is vastly different than Alabama. The idea of having to outbid other people for a house just doesn't exist in that market. We have a few friends who have purchased h..."
"When my husband and I decided to purchase our first house, I called my dad to see if he knew a great realtor in Seattle; at the time he was managing a company that created websites for realtors (in OR), and also worked closely with a top realtor in Portland, Rob Levy. My dad asked Rob who we shou..."
"Jim and Monte are the best to work with - professional, resourceful, communicative and fun!
This is a very delayed review but my gratitude is still felt to this day.
Jim and Monte worked with my sisters and me on the sale of my father's house after his death. This house and property were very u..."
