Ratings & Reviews

Without Emily we would not be in our current house. She has taken many negotiation classes, and this definitely shows. She was able to navigate the crazy Seattle-area market with expertise, confidence and poise to beat out several other offers on our dream home. We also used Emily to sell our condo. Her listing package includes a professional photographer, a stager, diverse marketing strategies and open houses which she hosts herself. We had multiple offers within the first week. She was even able to use her master negotiator skills to improve the highest offer. She is truly a kind person, responsive and a pleasure to work with. We could not be happier with the whole experience and highly recommend her for all your realty needs.

Sold a home in 2013 in Capitol Hill, Seattle, WA 98102.

Emily sold our property the first weekend it was shown. She listed it using the best possible terms & price which can be very tricky. We loved her positive attitude, professionalism, and knowledge of the area and current market. We highly recommend Emily and will certainly select her again for anything else we buy or sell in Seattle. Melinda

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $250K in Mount Vernon, WA.

Emily is a very helpful realtor who did a great job of matching up our wants and needs with houses and helping us to manage our expectations of the market. Next time we buy/sell a house we plan to work with Emily again.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Maplewood, Renton, WA.

Emily was amazing! She helped my wife and me find the perfect home for our situation. She was mostly an expert in Seattle properties and when we wern't able to find anything that fit us in that area she went above and beyond to become an expert in the Renton/ Maple Valley area.

If you are a first time home buyer I would say that she is your best option. Not only does she have like eight advanced negotiation certifications, she will sit down with you and answer all of your questions and ask all of the questions that you won't think to ask.

However I think the most important thing that Emily does a superb job at is keeping in touch with you. She was always emailing me and texting me with updates on where we were on offers and negotiations. Whether your first-time or on your third house this is essential. She also has an extensive knowledge of online signing apps so you can do most of the offers on your smart phone. It was awesome.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $450K in South Rose Hill, Kirkland, WA.

Emily completely redefined our concept of what a real estate agent could be. She was involved in every single step of the process, from helping us decide our "must-haves" and whether buying a house was even right for us in the first place, to facilitating our final closing by helping our mortgage broker provide electronic documents.

Here are some of the MANY things Emily did for us: 1) Provided an initial set of documents/handouts that explained the process to us in layman's terms - extremely helpful as we were first time home buyers! 2) Of course, she went with us to the viewings, where she pointed out various elements of the homes that we might not have noticed. At the same time, she really let us take our time and was not pushy at ALL. 3) She responded promptly and comprehensively to all our emails and phone calls, even when the subject matter was outside of her official responsibilities. 4) She helped recommend other vendors in the process, such as the wonderful inspector and sewer scope, and even our home insurance agent. 5) She worked long and hard with the seller and also our mortgage broker to make sure this thing went through. There were numerous unforseen complications and it appears to us that she was the engine that really helped drive the ultimate close. 6) She continues to be there for us as we adjust to being new home-owners.

Emily's knowledge of the market and all the processes around buying a home is exemplary. We cannot recommend her highly enough!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $425K in Haller Lake, Seattle, WA.

When we first met Emily, we didn't know anything about the housing market. She quickly grasped the extent of our ignorance, and we spent the remainder of two hours learning the basics of real estate. She was enthusiastic and generous in answering all our questions, and gave us all the freedom in the world to ask them. As we started seriously looking for houses, Emily was willing to give her opinion on the houses we saw, but she never pushed us. We would go out and look at five or six houses at a time. It was was fun, she was positive, and with her we learned very quickly. In a season where houses were snatched up within days of landing on the market, Emily needed to be saavy in knowing how to make our bid particularly attractive. She fought for us, she made us work, and we got the house. It is a beautiful and good home! Emily continues to give us house-related advice. She is smart, tough, cheerful, honest, and completely dependable. Emily Griffin was, and still is, our realtor.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $700K in Haller Lake, Seattle, WA.

Emily's help was crucial in getting us into our house! We were dealing with an inexperienced and often unhelpful seller's agent, which could have made the process a nightmare, but Emily was always on the ball, doing her job excellently, and coaching the seller's agent so that he did his job, too -- although sometimes she did it for him. When the sellers wanted weird financial arrangements, Emily spent a lot of time on the phone with our loan people, figuring out if it would work. She was also there for more usual things, like a sewer inspection that we couldn't get to ourselves. Whenever we had a question or difficulty, Emily was ready to help, and really moved us as painlessly as possible through the whole process. Thanks so much, Emily!

My husband and I have looked at several houses with Emily Griffin in Seattle and the Eastside. She has always been enthusiastic and incredibly knowledgeable about the market. She has been able to help us understand what we can reasonably expect to purchase in our price range without either over-inflating our expectations or depressing us. Emily has shown herself to be very flexible around my husband and my busy work schedules. I have referred her to several friends who have also found to her to be as fantastic as I believe her to be. I can't recommend Emily highly enough. She is everything I have been looking for in a Real Estate agent!

Showed home in 2010 in Ravenna, Seattle, WA 98115.

Emily is a very knowledable real estate professional. She quickly responded to all my interests, exceeded my expectations by showing me additional properties that I wasn't aware of, pointing out areas within and outside the home and neighborhood that are important to me and my family, as well as getting to know me as a home owner to anticipate possible interests or challenges. I highly recommend her to anyone and will continue to use her as my real estate agent in all endeavors. Please contact her for your real estate business and you will be more than satisfied.
