Ratings & Reviews

Shawn far exceeded our expectations of a real estate professional. He is extremely responsive, leaves no stone unturned, and managed us through the process with great professionalism. As an example, we used Shawn as a buying agent and selling agent as we put in an offer contingent on the sale of our old home. Shawn's picture and marketing was top notch, he was willing to do whatever was required to sell our home, and he even took care of all the remediation required through the buyer inspection. We are busy with work and Shawn took care of everything; even being at our house to oversee the contractors. People often make comments how real estate agents don't earn the money they get. Well, that is certainly not the case with Shawn. He earned every cent. <br/><br/>We highly recommend Shawn for buying and/or selling your next home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.05M in Madison Park, Seattle, WA.

I highly recommend Shawn for the homebuying process. While looking at homes, he was able to identify problems and concerns that I wouldn't even think to look for. He is a great guy and was super easy to work with.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $325K in Highlands, Kirkland, WA.

Shawn was very quick to get our listing in the MLS. Very professional and knowledgeable. He was dead on with the pricing and the condo sold in two days. Could not have been an easier process!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.925M in Madison Park, Seattle, WA.

Shawn was instrumental in helping us buy a house in Seattle. He demonstrated a current and complete understading of the residential and condo markets in the Seattle area. He was seamless in process issues for documenting the purchase effort. He is pleasant, extremely responsive and is well respected by everyone with whom we innteracted.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Shoreline, WA.

Shawn was extremely helpful in assisting with the purchase of my first home. The purchase came during a time of family emergency and Shawn made the process as quick and stress free as possible. I really appreciated his willingness to take initiative and go above and beyond what is expected. He is very professional and knowledgeable; I have already referred him to friends/family and will continue to do so!

Helped me rent a Single Family home in Yarrow Point, WA.

My husband and I wanted a larger house for us and our children, but the market was not very good for us to get what we really wanted, so instead we looked into renting a house.

After looking into purchasing a house with Shawn's help and having to financially wait for a better time, or better market… Shawn was wonderful enough to continue helping us with our rental search. He helped us with advice and searches, and really helped us with the whole process.

I was really impressed how much he looked out for what we needed and were asking for. He helped us find listings to look at that we wouldn't have even known were there in the beginning... and we found a house that we love. He helped us with everything we needed to sign the contracts and negotiate rent and everything. We won't look any further when we decide to purchase a house again. Shawn has our trust and has earned our referral to everyone who mentions needing an agent.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $375K in Edmonds, WA.

I worked with Shawn in 2011 to purchase my first home. It was a bank owned property and Shawn was instrumental in our negotiations with the bank. I feel like I wouldn't have gotten the amazing home and deal I got if it wasn't for Shawn.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $825K in View Ridge, Seattle, WA.

Shawn Filer helped us with the recent purchase of our home in Seattle. He was extremely responsive with email and phone communications and accommodated our requests to view homes as soon as they got listed. We've lived in Seattle a combined 60 years and felt that Shawn knew the Seattle real estate market and neighborhoods better. As experienced home buyers (it was our 6th home purchase) and as attorneys, we felt we were in good hands with Shawn during the paperwork (ie, price escalation provisions) and negotiation process. We would recommend him without hesitation, and would use him for our next real estate purchase and sale.

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $1.525M in Windermere, Seattle, WA.

Shawn successfully sold our large, but dated home in a very challenging, declining market. He was great at overcoming buyer objections to the layout and also to possible remodeling costs associated with a larger home. He even went as far as to escort potential buyers to the neighborhood's private and gated park to demonstrate the added value that living within the Windermere Park borders provides. I highly recommend Shawn for his negotiation skills, NE Seattle knowledge, and also his marketing capabilities.
