Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Matthews Beach, Seattle, WA.
When my wife and I decided we wanted to purchase our first home, we had a lot of mixed emotions. We were excited about the opportunity but at the same time we had a lot of questions and anxiety about the whole process. We were so lucky to have found Moose and his team as they truly made the process easy for our family.
Moose took the time to get to know us, educate us on different neighborhoods and opportunities, show us houses which met our needs, answer all of our questions and do all of it with patience and care.
We had a tough closing process and Moose proved to be a master negotiator who represented and advised us in way which not only helped the deal go through, but also got us the best price possible.
Today my family and I couldn't be happier in our new home. We love the house we purchased and the neighborhood we're in. To top it off, we have seen houses in our area rise tremendously since we moved in and that equity we sought after is now paying off. We owe it all to Moose and it goes without saying we'll be calling him when it's time to do it again.

Moose Math is AMAZING!!! He has been a faithful and supportive guide through our home-selling process. He has a very strong understanding of the market and advised us astutely in order to make the best possible sale on our house - above and beyond what we expected. No question was too small for him to take time to answer. He is a true professional, wonderful to work with, and puts his heart and soul into his work.

Moose and Audrey are professional, efficient and a real pleasure to work with. My house sold in just a few days and they were instrumental in a smooth and easy transition. Both Audrey and Moose went out of their way to help make it as easy as possible for me. With attention to every detail the sale was completed on time and without any complications. I highly recommend the Moose Group for the sale of your home.

Moose was extremely helpful throughout the process of selling my condo. He had great knowledge of local markets and was able to any questions I had throughout the process from start to finish. He was also very accessible, responding to texts and emails very quickly, often even outside of regular business hours. I appreciate the excellent service and highly recommend using Moose for your real estate needs.

Moose helped with me with buying my first home and the experience was like no other. He was very responsive, respectful, patient and extremely knowledgeable of all aspects of real estate. He gave me advice for things for while looking at properties, not only within the homes but the surrounding areas. He kept in touch with me throughout the entire process. Even after I closed he still calls to check in and see how things with my home are going. If you're looking for excellent customer and knowledge of the market Moose is the man to do the job.

I first came to Moose when I was considering buying a house because of a recommendation from long time friends of mine. When I met with Mustapha he sat down an d took note of what I was looking for and explained to me a bit about diffident neighborhoods I was interested in.
I am afraid Mustapha didn't know quite what he was asking for when he started working for me as ended up dragging him from the Lake Stevens/Everett area all the way down to Kent/Covington area (including a few stops in between). During the whole time he was patient with me and helped me understand what I was looking at and for.
The interesting part about this is that after I decided on a home my financing fell through and out of frustration I decided to give up. After all the time he spent with me he did not end up making a dime off of it, but he was never anything but nice about it and wanted to help me anyway he could.
I contacted Mustapha periodically over the next year or two asking questions about houses, and he always would get back to me with his opinions. Finally I decided to buy a home again and I contacted Moose and not only was he happy to help me again, offered me information on lenders he worked with at my request.
In the end I bought a nice little home in South Seattle and Mustapha was with me the whole time; he has stayed in contact with me to follow up even after his job was done. I would (and have) recommend Mustapha to anyone I know.

Moose Math is an incredible real estate agent and person. I chose to work with Moose despite knowing many other real estate agent because he was a local family guy with heart and integrity. Moose helped me and my husband through a very stressful buying process and now we have our forever home. He was extremely responsive and flexible with our busy work schedules. He listened closely to our desires and concerns and supported us through each step of the process. He even held our baby during home tours. His excellent instincts and negotiating skills saved us thousands of dollars. I cannot recommend him highly enough! A true pleasure to work with from the first phone call to getting the keys!!!
"Bottom Line - Moose Math was fantastic. Excellent communication, very knowledgeable and very personable. Highly recommended.
Moose Math was a pleasure to work with. My 6 month pregnant wife and I had were looking for our first VA home purchase and found it with Moose. Prior to meeting Mr. Math, we worked with another agent that I felt was sub par. After we fired her, interest rates were fluctuating, we were getting burned out on the home search and my wife wasn't getting any less pregnant! Needless to say we were getting a bit discouraged.
Enter Moose Math. I cold called him because he was selling a house that I was interested in and I just got rid of my previous agent. I was skeptical about what services he could provide after my previous experience but then he said, "Let me EARN your business." I knew right away that he was someone I could work with and that was willing to put in the appropriate time to make sure my wife and I got what we wanted.
Our initial meeting was fantastic. He met us at a house that both my wife and I were interested in and then pulled out his Ipad to give an overview of the market, the Seattle area, financing, how the short sale process works and the home buying process in general. Great use of technology to convey his ideas not to mention it set us at ease knowing the process.
Moose worked with us in scouting out locations, finding homes that just got on the market and in grasping what the term "fixer upper" truly entailed. He took time to understand what our idea of fixing up meant (tightening a couple screws and putting up paint not ripping down walls!) which helped focus us too. He clearly outlined pros and cons of each house and location and helped us discover areas of Seattle that we were previously unfamiliar with.
Understands his audience - I am an accountant and my wife is a nurse. I am very numbers oriented and she is more emotional. Moose spent considerable time talking negotiation and finance strategy with me but also broke complex theory down simply for my wife as well. We were both happy to have Moose bridge the gap between us resulting in a house that was satisfying both emotionally and financially prudent.
Knows the market - while other agents avoid short sales and foreclosures Moose was not afraid of the additional work. He outlined what the short sale process entailed, how long it could take and the risk involved. He's experienced and was able to contact banks and cut through a lot of red tape that other agents feared. Although we eventually bought a non-foreclosure it was great to not be limited in our selection.
Moose had no problem navigating the additional VA paperwork required for our sale,
Timely Communication - Fast Clear communication via phone, text and email. Always available and responds quickly.
Outlined the home-buying experience so we always knew what was happening throughout the process
Quality associates - Moose was very respectful of my pre-approved financing but asked if I was interested in trying one of his associates, Keith Akada, to see if he could beat my bank's rate. This saved us a quarter point on our initial financing and set me up with a great contact for our refinance. Keith works very well with Moose and this makes the process smooth for everyone.
Cares that you're in the right house. My wife fell in love with our house first, but I thought she may have been jumping in a little quickly (she fell in love with a few houses before too!). Moose took time to meet with me separately to discuss my concerns, tour a couple more houses without my wife for comparison and to really discuss the pros and cons of the house without emotion.
Two years later we are very happy to be in our home with our little daughter. We got an excellent rate on our house and would gladly recommend Moose and his associates to our friends and family."
