"Brad helped us sell our home on the east side of Capitol Hill and buy a new one on the west side- this time a condo. My husband and I agree that he met every one of our expectations. His market knowledge and intellect make him a stand-out. He knows Capitol Hill because he has lived and worked here for years. He is fluent in negotiation and has mastered the intricacies of contracts. And finally, you just have to know how calm, kind, and steady he is. I think his demeanor rubs off on those around him because throughout both our transactions there was never any drama or angst. Instead, we simply enjoyed steady, speedy progress towards our goals. Thanks, Brad!!" - Susan & Calder
"We had interviewed several real estate agents to sell our home, and choose Brad to represent us because of his superior knowledge and understanding of the Seattle market and his friendly and genuineness personality. His suggestions for marketing our home were “spot on”… Brad’s write up description, photography, brochure layout and online marketing were simply exceptional. We feel very fortunate in selling our home for more then we expected because of Brad’s skills and representation. You can not do better then choosing him to sell your home." - Erik & Elaine
"We moved to town NYC and then bought a house last year with Brad as our broker. He was absolutely fantastic. First of all he found out about the house over a month before it even became available, which gave us a serious advantage since there is never anything on Capitol Hill. Secondly, the sellers loved him, so they kept him constantly apprised of their thinking and other offers. He gave us great advice on the price points so that we didn’t get into a big bidding war; he helped us understand the renovation process, and even nailed it with his assessment of how the renovation might impact the value of the house. As a result we took a chance on a fixer-upper that turned out to be a great deal. So now we love our house and our block but feel like if we ever wanted to sell we could get more than we invested. If we do we’ll most definitely go with Brad again!" - Chris & Caren
"Brad was just so lovely to work with. The first meeting we had with him he came fully prepared with checklists and handouts and made a plan with us so that going forward we would know what to expect. He kept in contact and would pass along info on homes that met our criteria. While working with Brad my partner and I often expressed to each other how bizarre it was that the process of buying a home was so easy and painless. We moved into our new place last week and are ecstatic about our new home and neighborhood. Please work with Brad Hinckley if you want a responsive, engaged, and knowledgeable agent." - Amber & Patricia
"Brad took a very stressful situation for us and made it calm and positive. We had a 5 day window in which we could purchase a house, we didn’t have a huge budget, but we started emailing Brad a few weeks in advance of our Seattle trip about what we were looking for. We had strange requests (we’d like a house near a good school and near the university, but we want it to FEEL like a small town, oh, and we only have a limited budget to spend on a 3 bedroom/ 2-3 bath home. And we’d like a huge yard). We met Brad at his office, he showed us a few potential homes, gauged our reaction (oh, and our two kids were with us) and then he piled us into his car for two days of home visiting/ shopping. They were long days but Brad was very patient and open. He’d openly discuss negative aspects of the houses with us and give us background information on the neighborhoods. We ended up having to purchase our home afar, and Brad made that process easy and smooth. We had a happy ending for sure, and would recommend Brad to anyone and everyone. I feel so lucky that he was recommended to us because I don’t think there’s any other way that we could have found a house with our limited time frame…" - Balika & Sven
