Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.35M in Edmonds, WA.
We interviewed four broker teams before listing our Edmonds home for sale on July 17. Andrea and Jarl were the clear choice due to their professionalism and understanding of the market. We had high interest in our home immediately, followed by two cash offers. The end result was that the sale closed, at $1,340,000, just 41 days after listing.

Throughout the process, we were particularly impressed by Andrea's attention to detail and knowledge of the market, especially the high end market in Edmonds. We give Andrea and Jarl the highest possible recommendation.

Bought a home in 2013.
Andrea is an amazing and very professional realtor. She made her self very available and helped me find the perfect house. She paitently went through tons of houses with me and then when we found the perfect one, she had an offer together and ready to present within a few hours!! Talk about fast! She also managed to set up an inspection to happen within 24 hours! She is all kinds of amazing. Her partner, Jarl was able to show us houses when she was unavailable. She is always available through text and email and worked very hard for us! We are blessed to have found such and amazing realtor. She has so much experience that she even got us everything we asked for as a result of our inspection. I 100% recommened her and she even helps military families with across the country house buying!! She is amazing! I recommend over and over!! No wonder she has won so many awards!

Sold a home in 2012.
In the second half of 2012, I purchased a home, and then sold the old home, with Andrea's help. Met her at an open house in the old neighborhood earlier in the spring and liked her immediately. That listing sold promptly and became a solid, significantly more expensive comp for the old house. Most impressed with the invaluable, pertinent, timely data she had about the local market, backed up with lots of printed reports. Tons of information with NO sales hype throughout our entire transaction period. Jarl assisted as well when it came to listing the old house in September. Whether buying or selling, I always felt in very capable, professional, well-respected hands with this team. Andrea's response time to voicemail or email was often instantaneous. I appreciated her recommendations as to an excellent local bank for a bridge loan, home inspector, even the small mom-and-pop business that installed carpet in my new house. But by far I'm most appreciative of having vast amounts of comparable information for purchasing the new house, determining the maximum, realistic list price of the old, and no realtor hype or pressure; none. The old house received a full-price offer on Day 26 and proceeded smoothly to closing. I can recommend Jarl and Andrea whole-heartedly and without any reservations!

Sold a home in 2012.
Andrea and Jarl were absolutely incredible. They helped us find our dream home and also sell our house within a week. Their combination of professionalism, dedication, responsiveness, and negotiation skills were remarkable. They spent time pricing our house, previewing homes that could be good prospects, and walking us through the complicated process of contract negotiation. We have passed their name on to all of our family and friends. HIGHLY recommend.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $350K in Lynnwood, WA.
While seeking a listing broker for my mother's home I initially contacted Andrea and Jarl based on their five star rating and their success with other local listings, then selected them after personal interviews and review of their marketing evaluation. It proved a wise choice as it was a pleasure working with both of them during the process leading up to the eventual sale. Andrea and Jarl lived up to their rating by exercising skill, judgment and professionalism every step of the way. Both my mother and I were completely satisfied with the experience of working with them, and I would recommend any prospective home buyer or seller in the Edmonds/Lynnwood area consider engaging their services.

Bought a home in 2011.
Andrea and Jarl helped us bought our owned home back in 2007, and they are helping us now with purchasing a rental. Andrea and Jarl are diligent and very responsive - they listened to my needs and find what I am looking for. They are also excellent communicators with both the buyer and the seller/agents. They make themselves available and I enjoy the frequent interaction (phone call/emails). During negotiation phrase, it is an absolute must to have a responsive agent and have everything lines up correctly (offers letter has to be correct with no missing signatures, inspectors and contractors scheduled to meet the inspection contingency). This sound basic but I am surprised how easy it can be messed up. I worked with another agent and I had to check the offers letter for missing pages/signatures, and find and schedule my own inspector/general contractors to meet the contingency. It can be stressful. With Andrea and Jarl, they take care of things for me and I never have any worry so I can focus on the purchase. They have a network of professionals, lenders, and other real estate agents willing to share their experience with us, so I am getting a team. The fact that they are still around and strong after the housing bubble burst speaks loudly about their capability and customers loyalty/referrals. I have friends and co-workers that became real estate agent only to return back to their former professions. I would definitely ask Jarl and Andrea to help me for home purchases.

Sold a home in 2011.
Andrea & Jarl stayed true to us over 2+ years as we very picky folks searched for the right house. They knew our target market inside and out, alerted us quickly when properties in our ballpark came on the market (many times before they hit the online listings) and also showed us some "outside the box" prospective homes that really helped us see and understand the market. They were always available to show us properties and though I suspect our long search must have been wearing on them, they were unfailingly upbeat and positive. And when we did find our new house, Andrea helped us navigate the murky and frustrating waters of the short sale with expertise and energy. They marketed and sold our house, too, and were able to generate an amazing flow of prospective buyers resulting in multiple offers and a sale in just a few weeks, really impressive in this market.

Showed home in 2011.
We have been very happy with Andrea and Jarl as our real estate agents. We have been working mainly with Andrea. But we had our first meeting with Jarl and he took the time out of his schedule to just come and meet me and my husband. Andrea has helped us so much through this very stressful process. It has been especially great for my husband who has never purchased a house before. We would recommend both Jarl and Andrea to anyone who is looking for a home. Andrea has explained every paper we have signed and made sure our interests were protected when we have had the opportunity to make offers on several properties. Thank you for all your hard work Andrea and you too Jarl!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $400K in Victory Heights, Seattle, WA.
We were first-time home buyers and Jarl & Andrea really made the experience great! They were patient, gave honest opinions, very knowledgeable, and we always felt they had our best interests in mind. We could always get ahold of them and they were prompt about sending us new houses to consider, setting up appointments for viewings, and anything else we needed. They make a great team and we will definitely be referring them to friends and family as well as looking for them again when we decide to make a move in the future.
