    Bought a single family home in 2010 for $505,000 in Redmond, WA.

    Michael helped us to find our first home in 2010. Being our first home, we didn’t had much information, He was extremely helpful and helped us on all the aspects of home buying. I highly recommend him, and will work with him again any day.

    Bought a condo in 2011 for $170,000 in Seattle, WA.

    I just purchased my first home the beginning of 2012 via Michael Schafer with Findwell Real Estate. I found Michael to be very communicative and knowledgeable with the area and price range I was interested in during the search. Once my home was found and the purchase process began, his knowledge and guidance helped make my first real estate transaction easy and painless.

    Sold a condo in 2011 for $307,000 in Redmond, WA.

    When we decided on selling our town home in Redmond, we were already late in the year (around July). We were very apprehensive about whether the home will sell or not. We contacted Findwell because of great reviews of their agents on Yelp and we couldn’t be more happy with the results. Michael is the best seller agent that you can have. If I were to summarize it in points then – 1. Michael was very patient, eager to listen throughout the process and always approachable. 2. Michael tried to understand and worked around our constraints 3. Michael never recommended us unnecessary upgrades or staging that would have cost us more money (unlike some other agents from Windermere and Colwell Banker). 4. Michael was very good about setting expectations for the price, time and what needed to be done. 5. Michael was throughout with us after we accepted the offer, through the inspection and closing. He handled some tricky situations during home inspection with such a great attitude. 6. Michael followed up with our Home owner’s association diligently and was on top of everything. 7. Michael never ever pushed us to accept an offer that we were not comfortable with. I really appreciate this one deeply because when you are a seller and you are tired of showing your home for multiple visits, you just want to get done with it. At that time, it is very easy to give in for a bad offer to regret later. Michael not only asked us to counter offer for a higher price, he even said that if we do not get what we are asking for, we can take the listing out and re-list next year because he thought that the listed price was very reasonable based on his research and comparable properties. If we have to buy another house, we would only work with Michael.

    Bought a condo in 2011 for $145,000 in Redmond, WA.

    Michael Schafer spent his days and nights helping us find our first house, we asked him to show us around 50 houses in a period of 3-4 months. He showed us the kindness and patience from start to the end even when we (for a period) told him we weren’t going to buy. He was very honest and experienced about sharing his opinion even when it meant for us not to buy that specific house. I can tell we weren’t easy clients; constantly changing our requirements/price range/ house style and even the decision to buy in a daily basis. I thank Michael for putting up with us and helping us to find and buy our home. He will be the person that I will work for my next real estate transaction and would recommend him to my friends.

    We have had the pleasure to work with Nick Jarman as we were planning our first home search around the Seattle area. As we are from the Bay Area, we were completely unfamiliar with the area. We needed someone to guide us through the neighborhoods and give us the info to determine if the neighborhood would be a good fit for us or not. We wanted the urban-suburban feel, good schools, safe neigborhood, convenient to stores/shops. Nick scheduled a meeting for us right after we landed. Nick is a true professional and suggested he drive us around Seattle area (Kirkland, Redmond, Issaquah, Bellevue, Renton) to see how we like the neighborhoods and from there, we can round down. We realized that these areas have good schools. And he even showed us how traffic was like – live – if we were to be driving home from work! Nick took us around 4 days in a row. Most of the time, we called and he came over to pick us up within an hour. He was very prompt and completely efficient in scheduling and optimizing our time we had during our short visit. Each home was scheduled and the ones he could not get us into, he’d made sure it happened the next day. Without us reminding him. It was extremely easy for us. We enjoyed this journey with Nick because he wouldn’t push a home on us. Actually, he’d let us talk the home through at the viewing and never did he chime in with his opinions only data he had on his hands. My husband, who is a tough critic, completely admired that about him as not all agents are like this. No pressure ever to put an offer on a home either. If we didn’t like the home, we could be honest. That made the experience a wonderful one. In addition, Nick is a complete joy to drive around with as he pointed out the unique areas or interesting facts about various places and other great adventures of Seattle (good eats, too!). You can tell he’s passionate about this city! We did find our dream home with Nick in the 4 days and the communication with the seller and their agent went smoothly. Unfortunately, we had personal circumstances that prevented us from moving to Seattle after all. So, this is a bitter sweet story. We thought back on our trip to Seattle and realized that Nick had a huge impact on making our trip a worthwhile one. I would not hesitate to recommend Nick to anyone out there looking for a home. He truly is wonderful. I wish he was in the Bay Area now so he can help us here one day! And thanks Findwell – you have an awesome agent! THANKS NICK! Glad to have met you!!!

    findwell agent: Kevin Lisota
    Bought a single family home in 2011 for $434,000 in Bellevue, WA.

    Our house shopping experience with Kevin Lisota has been a great one. We wanted an agent who will show us homes that we requested of him rather than take us to various properties that he thinks we may be interested in looking. Kevin was always available to show us any property whenever we asked him to, even if it was just a single property or at an akward time of the day. He was punctual for our appointments with him and provided us with details of the properties. It took us 2 years to find our house and in all this time, Kevin was always patient, available and never pushed us towards a sale. He was polite and knowledgeable and taught us much about the various kinds of property sales. Above all, he was honest and trustworthy. He guided us away from some of the questionable practices and shenanigans of the selling agents and helped us navigate through a successful short sale. It will be my distinct pleasure to recommend Kevin Lisota of Findwell to anyone who is looking for a good, hardworking and trustworthy real estate agent.

    Lauren was an incredible agent. She was always available and made sure the entire home buying process was seamless. I would highly recommend her to anyone that is looking to purchase a home. Couldn’t have asked for a more enjoyable experience during such a stressful process. Thanks again Lauren.

    Bought a single family home in 2011 for $216,000 in Renton, WA.

    I just purchased a single family house. Nick Jarman is the best agent I have ever worked with. He is patient, knowledagable, experienced, followup. He gave us the best advices, fought for the best price for us, and well-prepared throughout the house hunting and purchase process. Nick just never give up until he found my dream house. Above all, he really CARES about his customers! My purchase transaction was closed 2 weeks ago. Nick still checks in to make sure everything is alright, follows up with the listing agent for the junk left over from the previous owner and so on. If you are looking for an accomplished agent to help you getting your dream homes or investing properties, entrust yourself with Nick Jarman! I definately recommend Nick to my friends and family and will hire Nick again for all my future real estate transactions.

    Bought a single family home in 2011 for $450,000 in Seattle, WA.

    I started my real estate search with Redfin, and at first really liked them but then realized they pretty much won’t do anything “outside the box” -meaning work with you on short sales, certain bank owned properties, etc. They are clearly focused on a very specific type of very uniform, routine transaction. I then went to a full service agent, well two actually. And they were like out of control bull dogs just trying to get us to buy a house, any house, despite it not meeting any of our criteria. Then we found Findwell! They rebate the transaction like Redfin, have a website that has fantastic technology for finding homes that emails with updates and homes matching specific criteria, etc. etc., and they are willing to work with you on out of the box type of transactions. Our agent, Michael was personable, honest, and a true pleasure to work with. He listened well and facilitated our home finding process in a way that worked really well for our family. He never missed a detail, communicated often and clearly (even on his anniversary vacation), and helped us navigate the Seattle market. The rest of the findwell team stood behind him so we were fully supported in the event Michael couldn’t make an inspection. Michael helped set our expectations to reasonable levels, coached us down on some offers and up on others. We wound up with a house that we really really love and can’t recommend Findwell highly enough.

    Nick has been the best agent we never met. He is always early whenever we want to see the house and he has been very patient to explain all the pros on cons on every houses that we seen. He never rush us into a deal that he thinks is not good for us and he helped us to pick the house that fits us the most. He is also very good in negotiating the price to make us pay alot less for our new home. I have referred all my friends and families and even co workers to him. If you need a real estate agent, I believe Nick will be your best choice and solution.

    findwell agent: Kevin Lisota
    Sold a condo in 2011 for $739,000 in Seattle, WA.

    Working with Findwell to sell our condo was a pleasure in an otherwise unpleasant real estate market. We worked with Kevin and Shannon, who were professional, diligent, and helpful throughout the entire selling process. We would recommend Findwell unconditionally even if they didn’t offer half-price commissions, and we will definitely be calling them when we buy our next home!
