Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.275M in Sammamish, WA.
We highly recommend Cory, especially if you are looking for an agent that knows both the process of buying or selling a home, as well as building one. He's extremely knowledgable about the lake front properties in the Sammamish area, and goes out of his way to identify the right home for you. He's so well connected and respected.
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $375K in Robinswood, Bellevue, WA.
First of all, Cory was highly recommended from the real estate agent who helped us buy our house originally but is no longer in the business. Cory did a miraculous job of preparing our house for the market in what must have been record time. After he initially toured our house he knew actually what we could expect to sell it for and we ended up selling it for very close to that amount.
He was honest and up front with us about our property and what we could expect from buyers in this obvious “buyers market”. Cory kept us informed during every step of the process and answered all of our questions in a timely fashion. This was important to us as we presently live in Europe attempting to sell our house in Bellevue thousands of miles away.
It became quickly evident that he has extensive knowledge & experience in the real estate market and had our best interests in mind to the very end of the selling process. His negotiation skills and intuitive “reading” of the buyer was very impressive. As we look to the housing market for our next property, we will not hesitate to call on him once again for his impeccable services.
As a commercial real estate professional we shopped very long and hard for the realtor that would provide us with the best service, having many candidates compete for our business. We selected Cory to sell our challenging home and to help us find the perfect place to live. His superior market knowledge and communications skills allowed us to achieve a quick close at our target price on the sale of our home. He then helped us find the perfect home in our new neighborhood and guided us through the negotiations to make the process easy and painless. We highly recommend Cory as a superior residential realtor.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $575K in Issaquah, WA.
We worked with Cory when we relocated to Sammamish this past year. He is by far the most professional and knowledgeable agent we have ever worked with. He really listens to what you want and keeps your best interest top of mind. His attention to "the details" shows when you tour homes with him.
Cory knows how to negotiate an offer and keep the deal running smoothly. He didn't go silent after we made the offer or push us off on an assistant. He kept in constant contact about the deal's progress and was on top of all the details.
Cory is an great resource for new and experienced buyers. He has extensive knowledge of the area, and his network of professional contacts means that no question will go unanswered for long. He is a knowledgeable professional with years of experience. We have already recommended him to friends and will gladly do so again.
Cory just helped me and my wife purchase a cabin at Snoqualmie. He was responsive - meeting us up at the pass after we got off work on numerous occasions. Cory also did a great job of helping to explain some of the things you need to know when you buy a home at the pass - this local knowledge has been invaluable to us. I would strongly recommend Cory for representation in Seattle or up at the pass.
