★★★★★ "If Zillow allowed 1,000‘s, Jeff & Hal are worthy of them! I’m not one to leave online reviews but these two men need to be recognized for how amazing they are! I was referred to Jeff by several friends who had previously worked with him and am so glad I did as well. Jeff & Hal helped me navigate a major remodel of my home (within 3-weeks) to get it on the market and were more than willing to be hands on to help the entire process. From helping to touch-up paint, install under counter lightening, replacing fixtures, you name it, if something needed to be done, they were there! I was out of town quite frequently and they never hesitated to go to my property to let contractors in, provide direction, and just overall manage the selling process. As a first-time home-seller I wasn’t sure what to expect but never expected this level of exceptional service they gave me! I cannot wait to have Jeff help me find my new forever home! I not only consider Jeff & Hal the best real estate agent team in Seattle, but consider them my friends now as well!"
★★★★★ "Jeff and Hall went well above and beyond any reasonable expectations I had. The level of personal care and concern shown throughout the entire process was mind blowing. Side note: This dude knows his cookies; homemade and he bakes them at every open so our home smells awesome and inviting!"
★★★★★ "We have been working with Jeff and Hal on both the buying and selling process now for several years in the Seattle area. We have bought and sold many homes in the last 20 years and I can safely say that Jeff & Hal were the best brokers we have worked with. They are extremely responsive and know the market and the process really well. They also adapt to the market realities and find ways to give the person they represent an edge over the competition. This is mostly done through superb communication with all parties involved and looking to find a win/win for the seller and the buyer. On the sale side, they do also an amazing job at recommending the updates that will improve the property marketability and driving the overall marketing campaign for selling the property. As a former marketing executive, I have been quite impressed. They will definitely continue to be our agents of choice for any future real estate transaction we conduct in the future. "
★★★★★ "This is the dream team! Honestly, I could never say enough good things about Hal or Jeff! They helped us purchase our first home and not only just a home but our dream home. Being from the Midwest we were very unsure what to expect when it came to the Pacific Northwest market but Hal and Jeff went above and beyond to work with us. We spent many hours, nights and weekends searching for the right home. Hal and Jeff were so knowledgeable from general home owners questions, to the neighborhoods around the area and just general housing questions. They really helped us be able to understand what to expect and look for. Not only did their knowledge help but their honesty and integrity were out of this world. We trusted with them and valued their opinions tremendously. If you are familiar with the Seattle market, you know it’s a hot market but Hal and Jeff were with us every step of the way making the process as least stressful as possible, enjoyable and a fun, the way buying your first home should be. The relationship we built with them made it seem like we were not just working with realtors but family and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. They were phenomenal with negotiators at getting what we wanted and deserved. Again, I can’t say enough about how wonderful this team is. I would never work with anyone else and highly recommend Hal and Jeff!"
★★★★★ "Hal and Jeff Homes Team has been our real estate team for over a decade. They have helped us multiple times on multiple projects. Most recently they listed and sold our town home on Beacon Hill. It resulted in multiple offers and escalation clauses and ultimately went for significantly over our asking price. Hal and Jeff are responsive to our every need. They are also honest and trustworthy. We have always felt they had our best interest in mind. They listen and understand our needs and are aggressive in fighting for what we want. You couldn't ask for a better team to represent you!"
★★★★★ "I’ve been buying and selling homes with Hal and then Jeff for more than 20 years. They can manage anything! And if they don’t know and answer, they find someone who can. They are my go-to for all thing’s real estate in the Pacific NW. They started out as my brokers and now have become friends. Hal has even shown up with little notice and pulled off a sale that I thought would be impossible. You can’t get a more experienced knowledgeable or can-do team to work with than Hal and Jeff."
★★★★★ "Hal and Jeff were great! We worked mostly with Jeff but had many email interactions and phone calls with Hal. Both of them were extremely knowledgeable about the market and diverse areas in Seattle. Their skills complemented each other well. My wife and I were looking for a real estate agent that was patient and not pushy; somebody who really understood what we were looking for, for us. Though all real estate agents say they do, they really don't (our experience). We found a diamond(s) in the rough with Jeff and Hal."
★★★★★ "If I could leave 100 stars for Jeff and Hall I would! We worked with Jeff from 3,000 miles away (NYC) to sell our home in Seattle and we couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. Our tenants had done some significant damage to the house so it was not a small or easy job to take on. Jeff was enthusiastic and walked us through recommended repairs, shared a host of contacts who were just as reliable and professional as he was and managed all the necessary work. He was always patient, professional and fun throughout the process. His knowledge of the market, staging, showing and offer review was amazing and hugely helpful. He adhered to the timeline we agreed to and was able to attract fantastic offers and ultimately a buyer for our house. I highly recommend Jeff without a moment's hesitation!"
★★★★★ "Hal and Jeff are definitely a great team whom you can trust! Jeff worked with us on both the sale of our last home and the purchase of our new home, and we could not be happier! Jeff was a calm, kind presence in the midst of a stressful and uncertain time, and his friendliness and professionalism really guided us through to a fantastic result. Jeff did an outstanding job marketing our home, and we were thrilled with the outcome of the sale. On the buying side, Jeff positioned us extremely well, allowing us to be the number one choice for our dream home. These two are the real deal!"
★★★★★ "I was a nervous wreck selling my home, but Hal and Jeff made the whole process. From the pre-listing phase on they provided excellent advice as to what things I should do and not do to get the home ready for the market. Once on the market, they held the open house and sought feedback from agents who had shown the house. When it was time to review offers, they made sure that all of the information was presented to me in an easy to understand format which enabled me to make a good decision."
★★★★★ "Hal and Jeff are a dynamic duo meeting all deadlines and EXCEEDING every expectation! They provided me with a selling strategy, proactively communicated, and cultivated an immediate relationship with my tenant; their diplomacy is unsurpassed. I felt prioritized EVERY day of the process from questions to status updates. The outcome of the sale of my property is WONDERFUL!"
★★★★★ "Over the past 13 years, I've worked with Hal and Jeff on three home purchases and one home sale. They always go above and beyond. During the purchase process, they carefully listened to my needs and helped locate listings that were suitable for my situation each time. With the home sale, they explained the process, staged it beautifully, and got it on the market quickly. They are customer-service oriented and attentive to each individual's needs -- Jeff even brought home-baked cookies along while we were looking at homes. They definitely go the extra mile, and I highly recommend them."
★★★★★ "Our experience with listing our Capital Hill condo with the team of Hal and Jeff was flawless. From the moment they had the keys they were in charge. They staged the unit in the most efficient and best layout. (The unit is only about 450sq. ft. so this was no small task.) They decided when to review offers, then graphed the offers so we could weigh all the variables easily. Their opinions were very helpful in helping us decide. Once we chose, they kept us informed of all the follow-up details. Hal and Jeff are masters in their field and we recommend them highly."
★★★★★ "Hal and Jeff did an amazing job from the perfect staging, open houses, to offer review and acceptance. They were always helpful and gracious. It was easy to be a seller with this wonderful team."

How it Works
We work together to decide which services can increase your home’s value the most and set an estimated budget for the work.
When you're ready to start, we will be by your side as you engage vendors and commission work.
Once the transformation is complete, your home will go on the market.
You'll pay for the services when one of the following happens: your home sells, you terminate your listing agreement with Compass, or 12 months pass from your Concierge start date. Ask me for more details.
A bridge loan is a short-term loan that uses the equity from your current home to help you make an offer on a new one, without rushing to sell. A simple solution to bridge the gap between the home you have and the home you want. It is the exclusive option to get up to six months of your loan payments on fronted when you sell your home with us. Get special access to competitive bridge loan rates and industry-leading lenders.
