Melissa was great to work with and was very helpful through the entire process. With it being my wife and I's first home we definitely had a lot of questions. She was able to not only answer everything, but also kept us at ease through a very large purchase which can be very stressful. We are very grateful we had Melissa on our side through our purchase and would recommend her to anyone.
Rosie Rourke's team helped me sell my old house and buy my new house. I dealt most often with Rosie, Colleen and Sandie, but the entire team was used for my transactions. They were excellent in every way, communication was great, and having a whole team working my houses meant constant responsiveness. Here are some example details of what they did for me: They called to tell me my offer had been accepted - on a house that I had talked myself into liking, but no longer wanted, having just found my dream house in a brand new listing minutes earlier. When I told them this, they did not get mad at all. They found a legitimate way to rescind my offer on that house, got me in to view the dream house within 2 hours of when it went online. They then hosted a last minute open house to find a buyer for my old house so we could put in a non-contingent offer on my dream house, which had a deadline for offers only 3 days away. They sold my house at that open house the next day. Thru phone, email, fax, driving, they tirelessly worked to speed up the timing on my old house sale so that the dream house offer could, in fact, go in non-contingent with an entire 10 minutes to spare before the deadline. I now live in that dream house and LOVE IT. They chased down everything when my old house closing was delayed by the buyers' VA mortgage company, including informing the buyers' agent of the delay, which she didn't even know about. When I was finishing the last 2 hours of cleaning my old house before handing over the keys, the gas fireplace suddenly stopped working. First I panicked, then I called the team, and they had a handyman over to fix it in 45 minutes so the closing wouldn't be delayed. They were excellent at advising on which repairs and upgrades to make to my old house while minimizing my costs. Twice they talked me out of spending $$ on a new bathroom vanity, told me to just paint the bathroom instead. They were right. They wanted me to keep that money to spend in my dream house. They gave good advice on pricing for offers on new houses and listing price for my old house. They had a professional photographer take the pictures for my old house listing, to maximize interest. They were friendly and professional throughout. I will use ONLY the Rourke Team for any future real estate needs and recommend them VERY HIGHLY.
Rosie and her team helped us sell our home when the market slowed a bit and the inventory was high. Rosie and her team were with us every step of the way. Her knowledge and insight of the market and the whole process was very impressive. Always quick to respond to any question in a kind and friendly manner. I would highly recommend Rosie and her entire team.
Colleen did a great job of showing me and wife different listings around the Kent area. She was prompt in communication and knew the surrounding areas quite well. In our second weekend of looking at houses we were able to find a home that my wife and I both loved. We had our offer accepted and successfully closed on the home thanks to Colleen and the Rosie Rourke team.
I have used the Rosie Rourke team to buy and sell homes, always with great success. Most recently, to purchase a home in Tacoma with buyers agent Colleen Linder. Colleen is a fantastic buyers agent with great communication and negotiating skills. She takes the time to understand what her clients want. Her knowledge of the local Real Estate market is second to none.
