Sold a Condo home in 2012 in High Point, Seattle, WA.

We worked with Wendy to sell our condo in a green community. We had already been working with a real estate agent who we had bought our home with only 1.5 years before. That agent recommended that we list our home for more than $10,000 less than we bought it, even when the market had increased and we had bought the home on a short sale! We went to Wendy, who really knows the value of green homes and knows the buying market. Long story short, as a result of working with Wendy, we actually made money on our home even after owning it for only 1.5 years - rather than losing $30,000 if we had stayed with our old agent! Wendy goes the extra mile to learn about a home's features, to target the right buyers, and her follow-up and level of communication is simply amazing. I can't recommend her highly enough!  More Less
