Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $450K in Monmouth, OR.
From our very first meeting to the closing of our sale, we found Annette to be an absolutely exceptional professional to work with in all possible ways. She was warm, direct, available, responsive, and always available with advice, support, action and follow-through whenever needed. Her advice about pricing and preparation of our home, in combination with her hard work and top-quality advertising stragegies (including the quality of photos to flyers) resulted in a speedy and smooth sale of our home at a price we were very happy with. She was no less than a joy to work with in all respects, and we cannot recommend her more highly!

Annette Sievert made a real difference as to the fast smooth sale of our home. From crossing the threshold she had us under contract in less than 2 hours. We put our trust in her & she communicated each part of the process as we accomplished this sale "Done" in about 3 weeks! Pretty amazing on so many levels.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Corvallis, OR.
Annette used her personal network to find me an off-market property, which I purchased below the price of comparable properties, in a considerably efficient manner.

A friend had worked with Annette and insisted I contact and meet with her during my search for a realtor. I had been told that the Corvallis market is notoriously competitive, which can be intimidating for a first time buyer. Additionally, a number of my fellow "first time buyer" colleagues had told tales of expensive bidding wars, realtors who are more interested in their fees than cost-benefit for their buyers, etc. I resolved to be a wary buyer.

I closed on my first home yesterday - less than 3 months after I started working with Annette. Annette was very professional and caring. She was also tactfully direct. In my experience in the PCNW, these are very rare qualities, which I really appreciated given the nature of this investment. As wary as I resolved to remain through this process, I had little in-depth knowledge about real estate in Corvallis.

My colleague had described Annette as tenacious in her quest to get her clients a great deal. This was especially true in my case. Annette found potential homes in the initial stages of the search that (a) allowed me test her understanding of my vision for a home, (b) provided good insights into her ability to judge property value and make recommendations based on required post purchase investments (finances, time, etc,) and that (c) her bidding/offer recommendations were usually accurate. As the wary buyer, I decided to trust her accuracy after being outbid on the second home. Following the initial search and the number of multi-bid sales, I decided the Corvallis market was too competitive and that I needed to regroup for a few months.

Annette promised to keep looking.

Annette used her personal network to find me an off-market property. We were in contract 24 hours after the seller contacted her. It was never listed, which reduced the sales price and allayed fears of a bidding war (a concern I had expressed to Annette with previous offer attempts). Beyond the convenience of the transaction, I was impressed that Annette judged the location, style, etc to suit my tastes - she had listened and remembered my comments on other homes, although I don't recall a notepad during any of our conversations! I needed to be out of town intermittently through the purchase process. Annette liaised with loan officers, the inspector, title company, etc. She made my first home purchase fairly straightforward.

I appreciate Annette's commitment to an ongoing relationship with her clients, especially first time buyers. She was attentive during the search and purchase, and has offered to serve as a "future value" consultant should I decide to make value impacting changes to the home.

She's tenacious (in a good way). I look forward to working with her again.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Corvallis, OR.
I have purchased and sold quite a number of properties over the past 30 years in several markets and I would have to say that in general I am not a big fan of most realtors. Annette was a very pleasant exception. She was efficient and direct with both us and the sellers in our transaction - resulting in our seamless purchase of a perfect home for us at well below market comps. Thank you Annette.

Annette is an extremely efficient Realtor. I have worked with many Realtors over the years and I can honestly say she is the most diligent, intelligent, punctual, reliable, organized, and ambitious Realtor mixed with a fantastic personality. There are Realtors and then......there is "Annette".

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Albany, OR.
We met Annette at an open house several months prior to putting our house on the market. We had been planning to sell our house ourselves as we had had a terrible experience with both brokers in our previous real estate transaction and had not been impressed with any of our encounters with agents in the open houses we'd attended; we believed we could manage the process better ourselves with the help of an attorney. We were so impressed with Annette during our brief encounter at that open house - her expertise, the quality of the house presentation, her professionalism - that we both agreed that SHE brought valuable skills and a work ethic that would be worth more than the commission we'd pay. It was clear she brought a level of competence we had not seen before, and truly advocated for her clients.

I am pleased to report that our experience with Annette exceeded those initial expectations. The marketing and sales approach she employed for our home is unparalleled in this region, her candid and forthright manner (and recommendations) gave us confidence we were always gaining from her expertise, and she masterfully managed the negotiation process of our sale. I tend to be someone who maintains a lot of oversight and control in matters in which I am engaged. I was more removed and relaxed during the sale of our home than I could have imagined and that was a direct result of the peace of mind I had in working with Annette. I would not hesitate to recommend her most highly.

Lastly, it is also worth noting that I have never worked with someone as responsive as Annette - a critical characteristic when potential buyers are expressing interest in your home.

Sold a home in 2014.
Annette called me back immediately and I was very impressed with her professional yet approachable manner. She was extremely knowledgeable and gave me lots of important and useful information. Annette came out and looked at the property and her suggestions were extremely helpful. She is one smart cookie and knows her stuff! I wouldn't hesitate a second to refer her to anyone.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Corvallis, OR.
From my first email to Annette to the day of our closing, the experience was wonderful. Annette responded to our enquiry about listing our house within minutes, we had a meeting set up with her that week to review next steps and had our house on the market within two weeks!

Her advice and process really works, from recommendations on staging to photography and open houses, we were incredibly impressed and pleased with the results.

She gave us honest and straightforward advice and insight that helped us sell our home in record time.

Annette's assistance was immeasurable and we can't thank her enough for making the sell of our house a success!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Corvallis, OR.
We initially got in contact with Annette when searching for a home to rent, by reaching out to many different realtors in the area. It didn't take us long to realize that we loved the area so much that we wanted to settle. Annette's helpful and professional response stuck with us and she was the first person we contacted!

Because we were first time homebuyers, we were quite nervous. Annette was with us every step of the way, whenever we needed her. In our initial consultation she explained the entire process in vivid detail. She answered all our questions in an easy to grasp manner, and went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable with the information.

Based on our requirements and budget, Annette was quickly able to locate a few potential homes (in a very tough market). From day one Annette told us that when we found our home "we would know right away", she never pushed us in a certain direction, but instead listened to our feedback and applied it to her search. Annette found us a beautiful little family home in a wonderful neighborhood, close to our shopping, work and leisure locations.

From there on Annette took care of the rest, moving through the purchasing/negotiating process as quickly as possible. She had recommendations for lenders, contractors, inspectors and more; all of which provided us with great service. Annette gave great counsel on when and where to negotiate, getting us an amazing price on our new home.

If we could give Annette a 6 out of 5, we would do so in a heartbeat. We did not deal with many other realtors in our search for a home, but we had no need to, we have a realtor for life!

Thank you Annette!
