★★★★★ We went with Leighsa and Patrick, we are so glad we did! It’s our first home so we had so many questions about everything. They walked us through it all anytime we needed anything both of them were on it right away. We will definitely go with them again if we ever want to sell or purchase another home! Thank you guys so much - Josiah and Arija
★★★★★ Working with Leighsa and Patrick was an absolute pleasure. Looking to buy in Capitol Hill, and hearing how competitive the market was, my partner and I started house hunting ~9 months before our lease was due to end. Despite this, not once throughout the process did we feel like Leighsa and Patrick were trying to rush us; They were extremely patient and understanding. It could easily have been frustrating for them to hear us find one or two things we didn’t like about the places we toured, but instead they communicated extremely well with us, and it really felt like they took or feedback to heart.
They made it very clear that they were there for us whenever we needed them. They were always extremely prompt responding to emails, texts, and phone calls. Because of a scheduling conflict, we weren’t able to tour the unit we ultimately ended up purchasing until the night before offers were due. After we fell in love with the unit, Leighsa was able to get an inspector out the next morning to provide a pre-inspection before we made an offer. Not only is this a perfect example of Pat and Leighsa’s eagerness to help, but it also illustrates the strong network of connections they have. We also ended up using their recommended lender after getting quotes and working with a few different options.
I highly recommend working with Francis Crowthers Realty and will be referring any and all friends/family in the area to them. - Taylor
Leighsa and Patrick helped us sell our starter home and buy our dream home, and we feel so fortunate to have worked with them on what has been the biggest financial transaction of our lives. We interviewed a number of agents, and Patrick and Leighsa were the clear standouts as far as their full service offerings, attention to detail, deep and broad knowledge of both the Seattle real estate market and surrounding areas, high level of integrity, non-salesy approach, and unique complimentary personalities. Unlike other agents, Patrick and Leighsa took much of the burden off of us to prepare our home for sale. They added incredible value to the process by being pragmatic about what easy updates we should make, as well as the services they could provide to maximize our sales price. They made sure that no element of the marketing strategy was left to chance, and ultimately we sold our home at a great value. After the sale, Patrick and Leighsa personally took us to dozens of showings at our convenience all over Puget Sound, ranging North to Snohomish / Woodinville, East to Issaquah, and even West to Bainbridge Island. Patrick and Leighsa have lived and worked all throughout this region and know all of the schools, community amenities, commutes, etc. that we cared about in our home search. They were patient and supportive throughout this process, so much so that I have been surprised and delighted at how not-stressful the entire sale and purchase have been. We are now the proud owners of a home that I never thought we could have found in this competitive Seattle area market. We cannot recommend Leighsa and Patrick highly enough, and anyone who has the fortune of working with them is incredibly lucky. - Jeannie
