Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $550K in Lakewood, Seattle, WA.
Marco and Loren made finding our dream house fun and easy! They magically got us in a house before others could make more competitive bids-- something we definitely couldn't have done without them and their quick, spot-on work. It was my first time buying a home, and Marco was super patient and able to re-explain all the paperwork to me in a way I could understand. And Loren was kind enough to think of us after closing when another client was trying to quickly get rid of furniture that would work perfectly in our new den. They make a great team, who are oh-so-fun to celebrate with after closing!

Bought a home in 2014.
I couldn't have imagined a nicer, more pleasant experience than working with Urban Marco. I had every expectation surpassed, and felt like I was taken care of with kid gloves- only to find out it's the only way Marco operates! Really can't recommend him highly enough.

Sold a home in 2013.
Aside from being a friendly good guy, Marco comes to the table with great knowledge of the Seattle area, an fantastic preparation.

After an initial consultation he let us know exactly where the home we were interested in fit among neighborhood homes that had sold recently. Verifying the home's price was appropriate for the area and what other homes were going for.

He also helped us to verify that that what we were buying was what we wanted in terms of mortgage payments etc. He worked extremely well with Cornerstone Lending to get the house closed in right around a month.

Highly recommended.

Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $500K in Fremont, Seattle, WA.
Our experience with Marco and Loren was so wonderful and I can't recommend them enough.

When we told them we were thinking of selling they started putting their "feelers" out immediately and came to us with a potential buyer. They were able to quickly get our condo sold without any hang ups or hassles.

We quickly needed a new place to live and they were all over it. They took us out to see a ton of different places just to get a sense of what we liked. I appreciated how willing they were to take the time to show us what was out there without the pressure of buying immediately. And believe me, they showed us a lot. There was never a place that came on the market that they didn't find or scope out before I emailed them (which was a lot). They knew what we were looking for and were always on top of previewing options and getting us a viewing quickly.

Once we found the home we wanted, Marco did a wonderful job advising us on our offer and turning the paperwork around within hours of the house coming on the market. They didn't pressure us to go above our limit and were able to close the deal on our home without pushing us out of our financial boundaries.

Loren and Marco make an amazing team. Marco is great at scoping locations and negotiating deals and Loren is super organized and stays on top of all of the details that I could never keep straight. On top of this, they are tons of fun to work with. I will use them for our next home purchase and would recommend them to anyone on the home hunt!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Kenmore, WA.
Marco and Loren provided an excellent service when they helped us purchase our home. It was our first home, and they far exceeded our expectations. Marco knew the areas that we wanted to focus in better than us, and impressively helped answer all of our questions.

Throughout the entire process, they both kept in very frequent communication with us, and made themselves available to show us properties within our schedules. Both Marco and Loren truly acted as our "agents" and not sales-persons, keeping our interests their primary concern. I would not hesitate to contact and use their service again for any real estate issue.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $475K in Pinehurst, Seattle, WA.
There is no other way to describe Marco and Loren except "THE BEST!" The first time we contacted Marco was actually as a referral from a general contractor who said he'd be able to take a look at our home and help us determine the best home improvement projects to eventually get us bang for our buck. We were clear that we did not have any immediate plans to list our home. He still provided us a very in depth comp book (literally a bound book) detailing what projects would be best to tackle first. We parted ways thinking we might call him in a year or two. Well, as it turned out a job opportunity (in Texas) came up just a few months later and we gave him and Loren a call. They were AMAZING in helping us set up vendors to finish up those half done projects and in just about one month's time we had our home fully staged and cleaned and listed all while we were out of state. We sold our home the very next day at our asking price and were closed within the month. We are so impressed by the professionalism of this team...and wish we had stayed closer just so we could share the congratulations with them over a drink! You won't find a better realtor in Seattle. Seriously.

Sold a home in 2012.
I have bought and sold quite a few pieces of property and have had great people to work with in those transactions. Even so, I have never seen the level of service provided by Marco and his team. What a great job- start to finish! Marco is extremely efficient and keeps you well informed.

Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $225K in North Beacon Hill, Seattle, WA.
Marco and Loren Kronen were phenomenal in the selling of our Seattle condo. We moved out of state, and were renting the unit out for 5 years. We finally decided to sell it, but were very concerned at selling the unit in this troubled economy, and had the added stress of attempting to accomplish this from afar.

Right from the start, Marco and Loren put all of our worries at ease. Throughout the whole process we had complete faith and trust in Marco and Loren's abilities. They took care of EVERYTHING for us. From staging, minor repairs, and cosmetic fixes. Their attention to detail and follow up were vital for our situation. They stayed in constant contact with us and offered thoughtful advice on all the situations that arose. They became less of an agent, and more of a trusted advisor.

Their website is another excellent tool that details the foot traffic and feedback from potential buyers.

We highly recommend Marco and Loren as your Seattle home buying/selling solution.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2006 for approximately $375K in North College Park, Seattle, WA.
Marco was great to work with and a true professional. He was well versed in what was happening with the market at that time, he gave us a lot of time and options to look at. He made sure we had a thorough understanding of our financing options and put us in touch with a couple of professionals we could work with to find a budget and loan that works for us. He was great at negotiating some of the extras like washer/dryer as well. We recommend him to anyone!

Sold a Condo home in 2009 in Moss Bay, Kirkland, WA.
Marco is definitely the urban expert for Seattle. He helped my wife and I sell and buy a condo and both experiences were easy and fun!

He’s was very good at listening to our needs and really digging in to understand what they meant (I’m not sure we were always clear in knowing what we wanted). After nailing down our key criteria, he did a fantastic job of laying out options and explaining his process. I’m sure all of that saved us a ton of time and stress – the communication was great and his follow up was fast.

We’ve had the opportunity to work with a few other agents in Seattle, and I don’t think any other has the strong consultative approach that Marco does. He really understood the vibe for different neighborhoods around Seattle, which was, of course, great for helping us lock in on where we wanted to live. But it also showed in the way he positioned the condo we sold – so it fit that neighborhood well.

I wouldn’t want to work with anyone else!
