Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $350K in Capitol Hill, Seattle, WA.

Laura was one of two agents working on helping us buy in the very competitive Capitol Hill condo market. Her emphasis was on the negotiation stage, and she hit that perfect balance of agressivness and tact. There were lots of ways in which she helped us, but I want to focus on how she navigated us through our negotiations, as buyers in a seller's market.

She had a superb sense of how our offer would play with the seller, and what we could do to connect with the seller. We and Laura both simultaneously thought of writing a letter to the seller, which turned out to be hugely important in the process. She also reviewed it for us and gave us some feedback. Laura also advised us on ways we could modify our offer to make it more attractive. But what was really great about Laura is that she wasn't concilitory. Even when we weren't in the strongest position, she negotiated for more favorable terms. She wasn't afraid to ask for things, even when we were. In the end, she didn't get everyhing she asked for, but she got enough, and we got our condo.

Laura is an absolute bulldog, but a very disarming and resourceful one. Everyone on both sides of the trasaction was happy to work with her, but there was no doubt whose side she was on.

I can't speak to how she would do in the house-hunting arena (I'm sure other reviewers have remarks on that), but if you need a negotiation guru who knows the market, knows value, knows people, and chews through paperwork like its potato chips, have Laura help you out.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $500K in Renton, WA.

As first time homebuyers Laura provided us with dedicated support throughout the process. She was very accommodating with our schedules and went out of her way on several occassions to make sure things were in order for us. She always presented herself in a very professional manner, and was punctual for every appointment. We would recommend Laura to anybody looking for a new home.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $350K in Leschi, Seattle, WA.

Laura Ko is very helpful and knowledgeable. Throughout the home-buying process, she was never pushy or overbearing. She asked good questions and was quickly able to recognize what we wanted in a home (we were not very clear ourselves about what we wanted).

Buying a home for the first time can be a very frightening and emotional process. Laura put us at ease with her calm and professional demeanor. She was always honest with us about the pros and cons about buying a home, which we appreciated greatly. When the seller's agent tried to play hard-ball, Laura patiently, yet firmly, negotiated and got us a very reasonable deal.

Laura also has a small network of lenders and inspectors who she recommended to us. We chose Tim (lending agent) and Wayde (home inspector), who were very straight-forward, helpful and honest.

I would and will recommend Laura Ko to anyone who is looking to buy a home. I am so grateful to have had her as our agent.
