We are so thankful for everything that Jean and Leslie did to help us find a house. We worked with Jean for over a year looking for a house. She was very patient while driving us to house after house. We were living two states away with very hectic work schedules. Our home search trips were always impromptu but Jean was always able to accommodate us at the last minute. She worked hard and quickly to get us access to listings we were interested in. The real reason we kept coming back to Jean was her honesty. She would never answer a question or concern just to secure a sale. Most of the time she would volunteer information that she knew would deter us from the property. In the end we ended up being interested in one of Jean's own listings. With full disclosure Jean offered we work with Leslie so our interests would be fully represented. Leslie stepped in and was with us every step through the process. Since we were out of state for much of it Leslie acted in our stead. Our trust was well placed. Both Jean and Leslie made the whole home shopping and buying process very easy. The only problem is they have always been so helpful and friendly that I continue to bother them with questions even after moving in. And they are so lovely that they continue to answer.

Bought a home in 2014 in Vashon Island, Vashon, WA 98070.

My wife and I worked with Leslie for the better part of a year as we looked for a home to buy on Vashon. Leslie was infinitely patient with us as we were true Goldilockses, looking for the property that was just right: not too big and not too small, not too expensive and not too run-down, not too remote but not too close to its neighbors. We never felt any pressure from her to be less picky, even when we started to feel bad about asking her to show us yet another house that had come on the market. She rapidly developed a sense of our tastes, so she could help us rule out houses that would not work for us. We always felt that she had our interests at heart, even to the point of encouraging us to consider a home that had been offered to us as a private sale that would have earned her no commission. When it came time to make an offer, her long history on the island and familiarity with the other real estate professionals was invaluable in navigating the process. When Leslie was away on vacation, she turned us over to her sister, who was able to pick up seamlessly where she left off. If we were ever looking for a house on Vashon again, we would definitely turn to Leslie & Jean.

Bought a home in 2014 in Vashon Island, Vashon, WA 98070.

My wife and I recently worked with Leslie and Jean to buy a home on Vashon. We are moving from Seattle, and I can say from experience there is a *lot* to learn about the quirks and idiosyncracies of island living - from septic systems to local road maintenance and shared wells, to the realities of ferry commuting - to say nothing of local market conditions, and what constitutes a reasonable price. Buying a home on Vashon is *nothing* like buying in the city, and I cannot imagine more knowledgable or professional folks to work with than Leslie and Jean. They were amazing throughout the process, driving with us all over the island for over a year while we looked for the perfect home, getting us through the negotiation, and talking me off the ledge during the inevitable idiocy on display by my chosen lender and their underwriters...

Throughout, they never, ever pushed, and in the end we found our perfect home. (And by the way, it was the cheapest one we looked at). If you're thinking about making the move, give them a call.

Bought a home in 2014.

We contacted Leslie and Jean to help us purchase land on Vashon in July 2014. The first thing that impressed me was their quick turn around on all communications. Throughout the entire shopping and purchasing process, they kept track of all the items needed to make the purchase go through, provided their local expertise (for instance, putting us in contact with the right people to talk to for water utilities, septic systems, etc.), as well as a keen eye for the quality of real estate itself. For example, Leslie can identify soil quality of various sites by the kinds of trees and underbrush on properties, and Jean has a great eye for site orientation, skills which were invaluable to us as first time land buyers. I would most definitely recommend them!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $450K in Vashon, WA.

Jean was our primary contact, and Leslie her back-up. They were both knowledgeable, supportive, and committed to marketing, showing, and selling our home. They helped us through the sale negotiation with confidence based upon experience. We strongly recommend Jean and Leslie to others, and would use them again ourselves without a doubt.

Leslie and Jean are outstanding real estate agents. There are several reasons why they stand out. First, they look out for their clients and don't try to rush them into making a decision. Second, they are very knowledgeable about Vashon. Third, they are excellent negotiators who provide invaluable assistance throughout the buying process. You can't go wrong by hiring Leslie and Jean as your agents.

We were EXTREMELY happy with Leslie - after trying out a couple of other agents on the island, we were so pleased to have someone so responsive, knowledgeable and patient. I can't recommend Leslie enough - we'd use her again as our agent in a millisecond.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Vashon, WA.

Buying the house we have just moved into was an unbelievably smooth process, thanks to Leslie and Jean. I hadn’t owned a house since the late ‘80s, and remember tons of paperwork I didn’t understand, drives all over town to sign papers, and delays while papers were delivered by mail. None of that this time. Of course cell phones and computers help, but the personal effect of these two made the greatest difference. They are both at the same time personal and good-humored, and entirely professional. In all the paperwork sessions with Leslie, I actually enjoyed myself and was hardly aware of how many times I had to sign my name. Our meetings always combined business and conversation. The two of them together are very good at moving through situations of possible disagreement between buyer and seller, a skill involving sympathy and the ability to build consensus. Both Leslie and Jean have lived on the Island a long time and know both its houses and its people. When I’ve asked for recommendations for repair work, Leslie has always had someone in mind who is both skilled and economical. Leslie and Jean both build trust firmly and quickly as they go through the sale process. I’d have a hard time finding anyone to recommend more thoroughly than these sisters.

Just finished selling my home with Jean. Jean did an excellent job representing my interests throughout the process. She is detail oriented and very responsive and provides excellent guidelines to help keep the process moving along. I'd highly recommend her as a real estate agent.
