Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $775K in Central, Seattle, WA.
Toby helped us buy our first home in Seattle and made the process very smooth and easy. We interviewed several realtors as part of our due diligence process, and my wife and I came away feeling that he was the clear choice. Toby has a consultative style and is very knowledgeable about the area (it's all about location!), and he is a great communicator. I am client-facing in my own business and so I had high standards for responsiveness, attentiveness throughout the whole process; Toby did not disappoint. He was also diligent when it came time to make an offer on looking at comparables, weighing the market, and consulting with us to make sure we got the right price (and didn't pay too much). He made the process easy, painless, and frankly fun. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others. Thanks, Toby!
Toby is an invaluable resource for a new home owner or seller. He has a vast knowledge of construction and his advice cannot be found in your average real estate person. We could not have completed our sales transaction without him. He assisted with our landscaping needs, walking us through inspections etc. I cannot say enough good things about him. He will be our go to real estate guy for ALL our projects in the future.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $450K in Ravenna, Seattle, WA.
During our 10 month home search we found Toby to be patient and honest. He listened to what we were looking for in a home, what we liked and didn't like, and made suggestions accordingly. He is honest about what he thinks a homes value is and where he thinks that it will sell. His contracting background helped us understand the nature and cost of the updates that were needed and that we were planning to do so that we would understand the full price of the home. I would not hesitate to use Toby again.
In addition to his background in construction that proves to be helpful when you’re looking at properties and need suggestions on possible improvements and/or the quality of the home, one of Toby’s qualities that I most appreciated was that he remained calm and level-headed throughout the home buying process. We were looking for a home in a very competitive area, and there seemed to be many buyers making offers that they may regret in the end. When we asked for his opinion on matters, I felt he always gave an honest answer that had our best interest in mind.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $800K in Madison Park, Seattle, WA.
We recently purchased a home in Madison Park, Seattle with Toby's assistance. The service we received was ecellent. He was not only readiliy available but listened to us, advised us on the process and negotiated with the seller in an effective manner. During closure there was a little conflict and Toby, promptly took care of it. He was not only supportive during the process but also after the home closed.
In short, Toby is a genuine professional, very dependable and helpful. It was our pleasure to work with him.
Toby helped me purchase a home in 2011 when I relocated from London. His extensive knowledge in the Seattle area as well as construction was an invaluable help, I don't know what I would have done without Toby!
I really appreciated that Toby was able to help me assess estimated time and expenses related with renovation if certain parts of the houses that I've seen needed re-work from his construction experience. Also, Toby was great in connecting me to reliable contacts to inspect the house after I put an offer in, as well as after-sale, with contractors to maintain the house.
Toby really does provide a great end-to-end service, from house-hunting to moving in. He's become a family friend!
