"I reached out to Hilary to sell my beloved Kirkland penthouse in early April. As my primary residence is in San Diego, it was really important to me that I could find an experienced, trustworthy and detail-oriented agent that could make the sale happen quickly, at a good price, and without a lot of oversight on my part. Hilary did all that and more. She immediately put together a marketing strategy for our place, brought in stagers and cleaners, took amazing videos and pictures, and kicked off the listing with an open house. We received a full price offer within 36 hours. Since then, Hilary has done a fantastic job getting inspection items done and driving all open issues to close. I've bought and sold 8 properties over the years. This was by far the smoothest. Hilary is simply the best - smart, organized, professional, great communicator, and understands the area and industry. My highest recommendation." - Micheal

"Hilary brings the perfect combination of skills to the table and we were so happy to have her help as we bought and sold our homes. She listens well, provides insightful analysis of data, communicates clearly, and works hard. We appreciated her calm, direct approach and her constant support. With Hilary's assistance, we found a new home much more quickly than we expected. She also did a beautiful job of staging our old home and bringing out its best features. If you're looking for a realtor in the Seattle area, we recommend you contact Hilary!" - Susan

"Hilary is more than a realtor. She is a force of nature. She found us the condo of our dreams in a week in a market that offered little during the winter doldrums and at the right price! Not content with that stellar performance she found and managed contractors for us while we were still out of state selling a house and packing up. Every contractor she recommended turned out to be excellent. And she found us the realtors in our home state that sold our house in twenty four hours with a cash offer above asking and two weeks escrow. Calls from this consummate professional buoyed us up and helped us through a stressful time. We could not have imagined a better partner in finding our new home. Thank you, Hilary."

"Hilary was terrific in every aspect of our sales process, from the initial walk-through, to looking at comparables and deciding on a price, to staging and then sequencing the on-sale date and opens, to presenting us with more than a handful of great offers. The house we purchased (well away from Seattle) likely would have gotten a higher offer from us if the seller's agent had anything approaching Hilary's competence and attention to detail. Hilary understands the market and has a high level of professional competence; moreover, she listened and asked probing questions to make sure she understood our wishes. She kept us apprised every step of the way on the sale - and she was supportive during our difficult purchase process, too! I almost never leave 5-star reviews on Amazon (I guess I believe the old saying "there are no 10's"), but I gladly give Hilary the maximum and an enthusiastic all-thumbs-up."

"We were looking for a vacation home and went to Hilary for assistance. She pointed us in the direction of Hood Canal. Hilary showed us several properties and once we found the house we wanted to purchase Hilary gave us the advice needed to outbid other buyers. We had a rather agressive timeline to close on the property and Hilary made herself available every step of the way. The entire process went smooth and we were able to close on schedule. I would highly reccomend Hilary to anyone buying or selling a home. She is a true professional." - Wade
