Bought a home in 2013.
The Shay Group was great in helping us find a home that we really love. Megan and Scott were fantastic with suggestions for neighborhoods for us to explore and were spot on with their research notes of houses that looked interesting to us. Megan was quick to respond to any questions we had and was very detailed in her responses. She has a very realistic approach to the home buying process and always kept us well informed on trends and what the current market was doing. We toured a home that we liked but there were a few issues with the house that initially caused us to pass on it- such as an older furnace, water heater and the asking price seemed high. With Megan and Scott's knowledge and detailed research of the neighborhood property values they suggested ways that they would be able to help us get the house for a more favorable price. They were able to negotiate a closing price for us that was closer to market value and included a stipend for replacing the furnace and water heater. They also negotiated us being able to keep appliances that were not going to be left with the house. When it came to closing, Megan was our hero! She kept on top of the process and kept us very well informed. She even raced to Des Moines in rush hour traffic to pick up our keys to hand off to us with minutes to spare before the Escrow office closed. We absolutely love our new home and truly have Megan and Scott to thank for it.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $750K in Issaquah, WA.
Megan, and her husband Scot,t represented us recently on the listing of our home in Issaquah. It was particularly complicated because we are currently living in Europe so all dealings with regard to the house had to be handled long distance. To say that they went above and beyond what you'd normally expect of any agent is an understatement. Issues with the house needed to be addressed and work needed to be arranged and Megan and Scott handled all of that for us. The result was a sale of the house at a good price in a reasonable period of time. I'd recommend Megan and Scott whether you are thinking of listing your house or you are a potential buyer.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $750K in Issaquah, WA.
Megan and Scott are great! We are living in Portugal, so they had far more to do for us than they would a normal seller and they did everything in a timely and conscientious manner. We had some "fire drill" issues regarding things that weren't done that we were not aware of. They dealt with painters, landscape people, a stager, and a general "fix-it" person and got bids, handled all the details and the work was done with the sense of urgency it required and all the repairs were done very well. I have dealt with 20 year real estate people who did not give me the feedback and communication that Scott and Megan did. Megan contacted every realtor who showed the house as well as those who had an interest in it to get their feedback as well as the feedback from their perspective buyers. This was immensely helpful. She is amazingly conscientious. We received computer data on showings and a myriad of other things. They had not sold a house in Issaquah before and so they quickly jumped in and researched all the information that they needed to get them current with that market and were well informed. In the final negotiations, the inspector found an issue with some windows. Scott immediately researched the issue and found out that the windows were still under warranty and his efforts saved us a minimum of $1500.00. It is great having a husband and wife team as each can then take on the tasks in the areas of their strengths. I would highly recommend them and would have no hesitation to use them again. They are eager, hard working, conscientious and truly care about their clients and the results they want to achieve. The actually listen to you and then execute to your stated goals. You won't go wrong using Megan and Scott.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $725K in Mercer Island, WA.
Megan did an excellent job pricing, setting-up, and selling our house. We tried some new approaches that Megan helped guide us through. It worked and we sold our house very quickly and received over 15 offers.

She is personable, willing to put in the extra efforts needed to sell a house, and works very well with other agents and clients.

I will use her in the future for additional real estate transactions.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $700K in North Queen Anne, Seattle, WA.
Megan was a HUGE help to us as we bought our home in Seattle. Moving cross-country was challenging enough, but when we found Megan at an open house, things got a lot easier. She knows the area and knows the housing market, and was fantastic in negotiating the details of our purchase. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home in the Seattle area.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $325K in Lake Forest Park, WA.
I would highly recommend Megan Shay. She's got a great, data-driven, technological, friendly approach to real estate. Megan was very good at gauging where the market was and in getting lots of visibility for the listing, both digitally and otherwise. We closed on my house within a few months, and I was very happy with the overall experience!
