Ratings & Reviews

My wife and I are physicians in training, and finding time to look at homes together can be tough to say the least. To make it even more difficult, we are both picky! We worked with a different Coldwell purchasing agent for about two months, before it was rather clear that this person was mostly interested in us purchasing a house, rather than helping us find a house that we would want to purchase. Rebecca was highly attuned to our desires and needs, and extremely patient and professional. She showed us properties that we would genuinely be interested in and helped us refine our interests, in a house hunt that lasted for almost one year. She also provided us a great reference for a loan broker who provided superb service and and extremely competitive rates and exemplary service, all of which were difficult to come by given our amount of debt. In times where she had any questions or uncertainty, she was quick to seek out consultation from her colleges. Anyone looking for a genuinely helpful, patient, interested, flexible, and professional broker should serious consider meeting Rebecca Carlson.

Bought a home in 2011 in Admiral, Seattle, WA 98116.

We were referred to Rebecca through USAA and were very happy with the high level of service she provided. She made herself available whenever we needed her, even with less than 24 hours notice. She walked us through the entire home buying process and explained in detail every document we signed. Since we were new to the area she even researched and recommended subcontractors to us. Rebecca did a great job showing us homes, negotiating and closing the deal, and taking care of the few issues that came up after close. Her calm demeanor and positive attitude made her a pleasure to work with and we will definitely use her for any future real estate needs.

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $650K in Seaview, Seattle, WA.

Rebecca was referred to my wife and I through USAA in the summer of 2010. After a career in government (State and Defence Dept.) and business, we looked forward to returning in retirement to the NW and Seattle. Rebecca's professional and personal care lead to the timely purchase of our last new home in West Seattle. Our positive experience lead my wife to engage Rebecca in the sale of her late mother's home, also in West Seattle. In a now buyer's market, she doubled her efforts, adding her own staging details and an energetic open house schedule. A qualified buyer was found and the sale finalized to our satisfaction. Throughout several weeks of effort, Rebecca's upbeat attitude and pleasant personality won the day.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $325K in Lakewood, Seattle, WA.

Rebecca had our house SOLD in 24 HOURS! She did such a great job staging and the photos were brilliant. We were blown away that 2 offers came in (especially in this down market) and wondered, of course, if we had priced the place too low. Rebecca skillfully handled the negotiations so that we closed right on time with no surprises.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $325K in Shoreline, WA.

One word to sum up Rebecca: integrity.

As first time home buyers, we choose Rebecca based on a recommendation from our Mortgage Broker. From the moment the conversation with Rebecca started we knew we were in good hands. Rebecca fielded all of our numerous questions about buying a home (we had lots!) and was incredibly patient with us throughout the process.

We drove up and down Seattle with her, weekend after weekend. We made and pulled offers. She carefully explained every document that was ever put in front of us, and in general she has a great sense for every step in the home buying process. She knows the traps that are out there lurking for home buyers, and she carefully navigated around any pitfalls that might have caused us grief.

6 months after closing, the escrow company the sellers insisted on using came to us claiming that we owed them $1600 due to an error in the paperwork. Rebecca was happy to review the documents and helped us refute the escrow companies bogus claim. She never stops working for you.

You will not regret choosing Rebecca as your agent.

Sold a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $500K in Admiral, Seattle, WA.

We moved from London and did not know Seattle but Rebecca was excellent in showing us all the areas that fit our criteria. And she was patient as we took our time to purchase. In the end, it was Rebecca who found our house and said "I think you should see this one." We did and we loved it!!! When a new job moved us to a new State, Rebecca sold our house for us and helped stage it. When the negotiations came, she was amazing in keeping the other side motivated and excited during the long inspection process. I highly recommend Rebecca for her local knowledge, understanding of client needs and her negotiation skills.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $275K in South Delridge, Seattle, WA.

We used Rebecca as our purchasing agent in our recent home search. We began that process close to 6 months ago with two agents after getting referrals from different, trusted sources. Some three weeks in, we decided to use Rebecca solely due mostly to her calm demeanor and attentiveness to our stated goals. We never regretted that decision.

Our first offer on a short sale property went south after months of waiting. An offer on a second property was eventually concluded after an incredibly difficult purchase process.

Through each of these, Rebecca fought for us. And on our second offer, she went above and beyond both to insulate us somewhat from the insanity of the sellers and their agent; and to keep us calm and focused for which we are heartily thankful. The purchase was incredibly difficult but Rebecca never lost focus or left us feeling adrift.

I have already recommended her to others and will continue to do so with no reservation.

I'm bringing this over from a review I wrote for another review site. Pardon the duplication. We can't say enough about how much we've appreciated Rebecca's help and guidance.
