I want to recommend John Stewart. What we like about John is his deep knowledge of the Seattle neighborhoods and that he takes the time to get to know his customers so he can present various options that directly map to the customers needs. He has a solid understanding of what it would take to fix up properties and has a lot of connections with various contractors, builders, etc. in the area to provide quick assessments that can greatly help make a decision when contemplating a new home. In our case a fixer upper. In closing I highly recommend doing business with John. He has helped several of our friends purchase homes and what we all like about him is his calm demeanor and low pressure attitude that immediately puts you at ease. John also takes the time to explain all the paperwork and end to end purchase process in great detail which helped us a lot as first time home buyers.
