I cant say enough positive things about Barb Lamoureux and how she worked to help me sell my home. I was recently divorced and found myself living in a home that was far too large and expensive for me to maintain. The house needed a lot of work prior to listing and I was kind of at a loss as where to start. I wanted to sell as quickly as I could, but also wanted to limit how much I spent preparing it for sale. Barb took the time to listen to my concerns and address each in preparing a sales strategy. She walked me through the things she felt needed to be done to the home and which of those things she felt I could do myself to reduce my expenses. The tasks that were beyond doing myself she was able to have done through contractors she had worked with and trusted at fair prices. She was clearly able to tap into a great deal of trusted resources that she had built over the years. She knows the Everett area extensively and does her homework as to how and when to list properties. She was always available to answer questions and address issues as they came up. Beyond all that, she was a reassuring presence who made my selling experience a positive one. I ended up netting almost exactly what she had estimated and sold even more quickly than I had hoped. She was always honest with her opinions and did not sugar coat things. She knows what she is doing and treated me fairly. I have sold homes in the past and always worked with agents as a necessary part of the process, but can honestly say that working with Barb felt as though we were working together to achieve common goals, which was a refreshing experience. If ever in need of buying or selling again, I would call her first without question.
