Meet Colleen and Melissa, the dedicated buyer agents for the Rosie Rourke Team!

Here are 3 Reasons Why Colleen and Melissa are the dedicated buyers agents on the TOP South King County John L. Scott Real Estate Team… and why you should partner with them to help you!

  1. Find the Perfect Property! The first step is meeting with one of us, we can explain the process, figure out what you are looking for and get you ready to start looking! We will set up a custom search that matches your exact criteria… it’s a custom tailored list of homes for you to view that is emailed directly to you everyday. Talk about concierge service! See something you like… let’s go look at it!
  2. Negotiate… and WIN! Multiple offers on a home the first weekend it is for sale is the new normal for the South King County real estate market. You need an agent who is detailed oriented, on the ball, and moves quickly to get you into properties before they go pending. Colleen and Melissa make their clients their top priority day or night, and they have the relationships and knowledge of what selling agents are looking for in an offer… which helps them win more deals!
  3. Navigate the Contract… Protect Your Money! Have you ever drafted a real estate contract before? Unless you are a lawyer or a licensed real estate agent then your answer will be NO! That is why you partner with us, we will walk you through the process and make it as stress free as possible! We also have a dedicated transaction coordinator to help with smooth sailing until closing. It’s our job to protect your money and your interests every step of the way, our experience and hands on approach matters.

My wife and I just recently purchased our very first home here in Washington State and we couldn’t have done it without the help of Colleen and the Rosie Rourke team. Colleen was there for us every step of the way and we are very grateful that we had her guidance throughout the whole process.
