Testimonials

Irene and Mike have been the most professional, knowledgeable and responsive realtors I’ve ever worked with. They helped my partner and I buy a house, and also helped me sell my existing one, which was a difficult one to value and bring to closure. I think they are equally strong on the buying and selling side, and do a great job of telling you the pros and cons of each feature, each house and location. Mike is a huge help when it comes to taking care of work to be done in the house you’re selling, and the staging of my house was just a knock-out – it looked fabulous. Irene knows the area very well, and is tenacious and well organized. She helped me to evaluate each potential house as an investment opportunity, as well as it’s fit for us as a couple. They work really well as a team, and I would recommend them without hesitation.

On the buy side, Irene was extraordinarily responsive and helpful. It was a very complex, custom transaction involving a long presale agreement and various addendums. When necessary, she pulled in experts from her office for assistance. She went to bat for us in sometimes difficult circumstances, spending 2+ years on this one transaction and putting in an amazing amount of effort. On the sell side is where Mike and Irene truly shined, however. The house was in need of some work in order to really make it shine and maximize price. But we simply did not have the time to do the work. Much to our delight, Irene and Mike took over the entire process in order to get the home prepared and staged ASAP in a really hot market. The work that they did was far above and beyond what we expected. They completely transformed the house. And got us $60-70K more than we were expecting :) All, in all, I cannot recommend them enough. Super professional, super responsive, super thorough. And most of all, they seemed to genuinely care about us and our transaction.

Irene and Mike Nash are the sincere, supportive and knowledgeable partners needed to prepare for, and accomplish, a smooth, rewarding home sale. They respectfully share their perspectives as they and the seller make team decisions throughout the process. Both Irene and Mike provide thoughtful, economically sound suggestions that increase both the aesthetic appeal and monetary value of the home prior to placing it on the market. Efforts to make simple and affordable improvements that Irene and Mike suggest (and help execute) make a wonderful difference in the home’s appearance and charm. These partners take on complementary roles to skillfully and efficiently work together to stage the home with impressive results. Irene’s eye for detail in decorating and landscaping, and Mike’s expertise at making the home’s workmanship look its very best, both inside and outside, create an atmosphere that welcomes, and appeals to, numerous buyers. Irene and Mike carefully listen to the seller describe their perceived value of a home’s interior and exterior, and the community, which enables them to reveal its full value to potential buyers. Their careful, accurate market analysis and their well-informed, professional judgment help price the home appropriately for a rewarding and timely sale.
Irene and Mike provide wise advice. They stage the home in a creative and detailed manner, and their all-important marketing is of professional quality. If you are facing what could be the overwhelming task of selling a home, this husband and wife team is an absolute pleasure to work with. They will bring a supportive partnership to the experience.

Thanks again for your outstanding customer service and professionalism!

Rob and Jacki

It was my first rental property. Irene and Mike did the deep analysis from every aspects to make sure that this is a great investment. I am very happy with the result! I would definitely hire them for next house.

(We also recently staged and marketed a home for Yoshi that sold with multiple offers at over 25% above list price.  See the photo gallery here.)

I have known Irene for 8 years. She helped me buy my first house. I was so clueless, and Irene is extremely patient with explaining everything thoroughly. And it wasn’t just that she was good at explaining tiny details of paperwork (although she is good at that), she is also excellent at evaluating the pros and cons of a property. She helps you choose a home with long-term value that still meets your needs. Even after all these years, I am still in love with that first house.

I lived in that home for many years, and during those years, I have used Irene as a resource for quality service providers of all kinds of household/ lifestyle things. Working with quality people, be it your inspector, your title company, your septic inspection, your handyman etc, is very important to her. If she doesn’t know of a recommendation, she will ask for references from her office, so you always end up with a well-researched answer. Even when I wasn’t actively buying/selling a home, Irene was an excellent resource for me.

Years later I bought a second house with Irene. We were not even sure if we were looking yet, but Irene kept her eyes open and sent us an enthusiastic email when she found our dream house. And she was right, it was perfect! Of course, with any purchase, there are always some odd thing that needs to be looked into. I cannot begin to describe to you how many hoops jumped through and phonecalls made by Irene to clarify some minor odd details in the title of the house. And of course, she could not have made things any smoother.

Irene is extremely meticulous and organized. She is the only person I know who has MORE attention to detail than I do myself. She is calm and mild mannered in stressful situations. She is able to make recommendations and suggestions without being pushy. She is organized and very responsive. She is very ethical and it is always apparent that she is your advocate. She looks out for your best interests. She is a wonderful person to have in your corner and I could not recommend her more highly.

Michele Lewis

My wife and I, who were first time home buyers, had a great experience with Irene. She worked extremely hard for us and was very responsive. She showed us house after house after house, and was exceedingly patient as we tried to figure out what we wanted. She did her best to show us the types of houses we asked to see, and gently pushed us to consider houses we didn’t know we’d like until we saw them!

She also gave us her honest opinion at every turn. That meant telling us the downsides of houses that interested us, and, ultimately, encouraging us to buy the house we’ve now lived in (and loved) for more than 3 years. Her interests were always aligned with ours, and we were glad we had her at our side!

Jake and Emilie

My husband and I just bought our first home, and we chose Irene as our agent. After getting recommendations from friends, we interviewed 3 agents and chose her based on the following: – She took a lot more time than I thought she would to help us figure out what we needed. – She was very straight forward with us about all points of the home-buying process. – She has great confidence and knowledge, but still managed to be extremely patient with us. – She is fun to be around. This was hugely helpful during some exhausting days of home viewing.

We were also pretty proactive in learning about the process and searching for homes online. I was nervous she might shoot down my ideas, but she was totally respectful and supportive throughout the entire process.

Paul and Rebecca

We have worked with Irene several times over the past decade, and have referred her to numerous friends and family.

Irene is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and thorough on all aspects of buying and selling. She is well versed in current market trends and helped us negotiate through a challenging real estate market. When we moved out of state and had to find a new agent, we still connected with Irene for her advice and guidance, which she graciously provided.

Irene goes above and beyond as an agent and I highly recommend her. You will be in good hands!

Ben and Wendy

As a realtor myself in California, I had arranged through my broker’s office to work with a referral agent from the same company. In doing so, we would have received approximately 10% of the commission as a referral fee. After one long afternoon with this referred agent, we knew we would NOT be doing business with him. So much for referral fees! Later that day, we called Windermere about an ad in the newspaper. We reached Irene and began what has turned into a long business relationship as well as a friendship. Over the next few months, we completed our search for and purchase of our home on Lake Washington. This was not an easy task from California and we depended on her for much more than is required in a local transaction.

Irene is extremely patient, thorough and honest, but more than that, she LISTENS! Her follow-through is beyond reproach and while she is very knowledgeable about the local housing market, what she doesn’t know, she will find out. She recently handled our search for and purchase of a rental property in Tacoma with her usual expertise, which required much research and sharing of information.

In short, Irene is an excellent, trustworthy agent.

Doug and Robbi

Excellent! Irene sets the bar for all other agents to attempt to achieve.

Rucel and Elizabeth

My husband and myself will highly recommend Irene as a Real Estate Agent. She has lots of experience and helped us in the hard process of buying our first house. I had already recommended her to all our friends and will be working with her on future opportunities.

Roberto and Yolanda

We thought about using a discount service when selling our home in Shoreline. But, after a difficult and time-consuming experience purchasing a house from a seller who didn’t have a realtor, we decided that we really wanted a full service agent to handle our sale.

Irene took the initiative to hire a gardening service, a stager, and a professional photographer for us. We believe that using a professional staging service and photographer made a significant difference in the number of showings that we had, and in the short time-to-sale.

We invested more money on a full service agent than we would have with a service like Redfin, but we believe that we were able to sell the house faster and for a higher price than if we had had to do it without so much guidance from Irene. Our agent was worth every penny.

Curt and Amanda

Irene was a hard worker, patient, a good listener, and trustworthy – we couldn’t have done it without her!”

Patrick and Mary

Excellent! Irene is very personal and professional at the same time. She did everything in her power to make things go smoothly. We really enjoyed working with her and would use her again (and recommend her to others.)

Knowledgeable, professional, thorough, friendly. Irene helped my experience as a first time buyer to be a pleasant one. Irene was very present, organized and supportive during the whole process.

Irene is a very patient, responsive, and detail-oriented realtor. While she was our agent, she was continually trying to get a better sense of what exactly we were searching for in a home. Not only did she do the essentials of her job very well, she also offered good advice on home improvements and was able to provide quality recommendations for home-related service professionals.

In addition to her high standards of professionalism, Irene is also very personable, charming, and a very pleasant person to spend time with!

Although it took us six months to find a house that we wanted to make an offer on, Irene never showed an ounce of impatience with the slow-moving process. We highly recommend utilizing her services for your next home sale or purchase!

Ryan and Mary Ann

Irene represented us in selling our condo and buying our first home. We were guided with not only her expertise, but with her sensitivity and understanding. She explained the selling and buying process, making sure we understood and were comfortable with every step along the way. She kept us apprised of every detail and was always available to us. We felt Irene was always committed to our best interests. We were nervous and excited and full of questions. Irene made sure all our questions were answered before we moved forward in both the buying and the selling. Many times this entailed Irene working with us past 10 pm as we fired numerous questions and scenarios at her. She was always patient and understanding.

The selling process:

She gave excellent advice on preparing our condo for sale. We were very happy with her market analysis to price it correctly. She spent a great deal of time with us throughout the preparation and took great photos. This led to a great offer the day after the “For Sale” sign went up! Irene went well above and beyond what one would expect from a realtor.

The buying process:

Irene understood what we wanted in our new home, and spent a lot of time looking for a match. She did a lot of research, previewed all the properties she showed us, examined our commutes, and pointed us to information on the neighborhoods we were interested in. She has strong negotiation skills and an excellent knowledge of the marketplace, which was instrumental in helping us find and secure the beautiful home we now have.
