Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Federal Way, WA.
Ryan took the time to take me to each house I was interested in seeing. He came up with a few lists of homes that I might be interested in and we looked at ones that I found online. He's very patient and seems to lean towards finding you the house you're interested in as opposed to hurrying up and getting as profitable a sale as possible. That's the main reason I chose Ryan based on other reviews. I noticed some agents appear to be in a rush and get annoyed when you don't buy one of the first houses you see. He also replied to each of my emails and phone calls within a day. I ended up buying a nice house with 2 garages which was something I was really hoping to get. It was a house he suggested in an email. This house has everything I need.

Bought a home in 2013.
We started looking for our very first home this year with a bit of a time constraint as we were expecting our first baby. We found Ryan online after seeing how many great reviews he had and we can see why! Seriously, from start to close he was brilliant and incredibly diligent in making sure to accommodate our every question and request to see a home. It didn't matter what time it was he was available. His knowledge of the industry and of housing in Washington state in general was flawless. We were limited by our budget in a market that has become a sellers market again but we were able to get a brand new home with his guidance in a safe, family friendly neighborhood. Ryan is not only a realtor, he becomes your friend and adheres to your needs. A great guy, a wonderful family man and an absolute pleasure to deal with!! I would HIGHLY recommend Ryan for any home purchase no matter your budget!

Sold a home in 2013.
We had a very unusual circumstance with our lender and Ryan was steadfast in his dealing with them. He navigated the process unbelievably well, and i am certain that we would not have realized the results we had with any other Realtor. He is a true professional and gets results!

Ryan and Sheila were great and patient with us in finding a new home. We got a great deal on the home through negotiation. They were available and responsive when we needed them week or weekend, day or night! Thanks.....

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Buenna, Federal Way, WA 98023
Ryan is personable and professional. He responded immediately to each telephone call and then met us at the precise time of our appointment. His follow-up, knowledge of local real estate and his personal demeanor is impressive.

Ryan gave us his honest opinion, and then, although we decided not to list the home for sale, told us step by step, what to expect and then how to proceed. We appreciated his integrity and sensitivity to the situation that was at hand for our family member.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in New Tacoma, Tacoma, WA.
I will definitely work with Ryan again. He handled all of my requests promptly and very professionally. I gave him a next to impossible task and been very difficult through the process, and eventually we found something even I could not resist, and at a very good price. His local knowledge is outstanding, right away he told me the good areas to live and what to avoid. He prevented me from making mistakes by buying in areas that are not good, prices that were too high, and houses that would be hard to resell. I was tempted to buy some of those and he did not just go along with me and collected the commission. I highly respect that. It took many attempts before we arrived at something everybody has agreed on, and Ryan was very patient with me. He is very responsive, and most of the time I could just give him a call or write an email and he got back right away. Negotiation skills are excellent too, we handled a difficult foreclosure transaction with a seller that wasn't very responsive to our needs, learned about it right away and got better than published price. The only reason he gets four stars for process expertise is we did have a hiccup, mostly due to the seller's slow speed, and the closing date was delayed for a working day. Which, in the end, turned out to be a good thing because I got a refund and I was able to reschedule the move date. If it was all perfect, I would be suspicious reading the review.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Puyallup, WA.
As a first time home buyer, I was unaware of all of the intricacies of the buying process. Ryan made me feel at home and that no question was too small. He was quick to respond to my questions and provided me with everything I needed to feel comfortable in such a major purchase. We found the perfect house in a great neighborhood that I am sure I will enjoy for years to come. Thanks again Ryan for all your help and guidance!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Auburn, WA.
We cannot say enough good things about Ryan Karns and Sheila Elwell! They were extremely instrumental in getting us into the home of our dreams. We greatly appreciated their patience with us, as we were first-time home-buyers, and really had no idea what we were doing. They were always willing to answer any questions we had and were always happy to show us any homes we were interested in viewing. Sheila was especially helpful when it came to some last minute requests to view homes. She always made herself available. We would HIGHLY recommend Ryan and Sheila to ANYONE looking to buy a house.

Bought a home in 2013.
Ryan far exceeded our expectations and helped us to find our perfect house. We were impressed with how well he knew the area and showed us houses we wouldn't have thought to look at on our own which fit in with what we were looking for. He responded to emails very quickly and was able to make time with our schedules to show us homes. We never felt rushed and appreciated his expertise in showing us a variety of areas that fit the description of what we were looking for.

He is very personable and professional and was with us every step of the home buying process. When we finally found the home that was perfect for us; he was able to negotiate extras to be included in the sale. He is very knowledgeable about real estate; as well as the business side of negotiations.

My husband and I would definitely recommend Ryan to anyone looking to buy/sell a home.
