Our Happy Clients Say…

Moses and Roxanne moved from Texas to Washington and found a house with Emily's Help.
These Buyers Were Looking For A Very Specific Type Of Home – And We Kept Getting Out-Bid. When We Came Across One That Was Under-Priced, We Made An Early Offer And Got It Under Contract For Less Than Other Homes Had Been Going For.

“Emily Cressey was outstanding during our home buying process in a market not advantageous for the buyer. She made sure that we went through all the list of priorities in what we were looking for in a home. Emily went to work researching locations/competitive prices… reaching out to sellers agent when we lost on a bid to figure out where we fell short. Always on time at home tours and a text/phone call away at each and every point .Emily has been wonderful with after home buying resources and l have found a realtor for life !if you are buying a home… she is the real estate agent you want/need by your side. Thanks @Emily Cressey” – Roxanne

Brian and Mary's Home In Everett
We Sold Brian and Mary’s Everett, WA Home To A Buyer Who Visited Our Saturday and Sunday Open Houses.

Brian and Mary were excited to show me photos of the new house they were buying in Texas. The only problem was, they had to sell their home in Everett first. Plus they wanted a lease-back so Mary would have time to finish her job at the school before they had to move.

My co-listing agent Laura Lee and I set to work staging their home (and getting them to move a lot of items into the garage). When we were done, the home looked a lot bigger, and the owners had obviously taken very good care of it and undertaken several remodeling projects.

We “held it open” for two days, inviting interested buyers to come and spend as much time as they wanted the first day it was on the market. We had several eager parties who came to BOTH days of the open house, and one of them ended up making the winning bid. She knew the friendly neighborhood and fenced back yard would be just right for her golden retriever puppy!

Brian and Mary were thrilled to have a solid offer with no contingencies, and a 2-week rent-back, because it made it much easier for them to transition to their new home.

Bon Voyage! We will miss you!

Lynette and Rick's House in Shoreline
After The First Buyer Got Cold Feet, We Put This House Back Under Contract The Same Day With A Back-Up Buyer Who Was Renting Nearby And Had Come To Our Saturday And Sunday Open Houses.

Lynette and Rick and enjoyed living in their home for almost 50 years. They had raised their kids and grandkids there and it was full of many happy memories. When they were ready to let it go, it was still an emotional process. I enjoyed hearing their many stories about the mischief gotten up to in that home.

To get top-dollar in a flattening market, we couldn’t rest on our laurels.

They decided to do lots of updates to make sure deferred maintenance items were taken care of and they updated the paint and flooring through out to make it look great. The sparkly quartz counter tops in the kitchen were a special bonus.

With video marketing, flyers, calls, and Open Houses, we managed to get a great turnout to the home. We had multiple offers, which was good, because the first buyers ended up getting cold feet and backing out of the deal after just 12 hours. We had someone waiting in the wings, though, and were able to sign up their above-asking price contract just a few hours later. Phew!

Lynette and Rick were thrilled to see their legacy continue for the next family that would move into the home and enjoy the wonderful neighborhood they had loved.

Moving Truck From Sold House in Bothell, WA McPhetridge
Despite The Slowing Real Estate Market, We Were Able To Create A Bidding War on Day 10 This House Was On The Market. Two Buyers From Our 3rd Open House Made Offers And We Sold It Quickly at Full Price.

These empty-nesters were ready for a change. With their kids in college, it was time to downsize and try something new.

However, the real estate market was cooling and the sellers wanted to go with an aggressive listing price. We decided to “go all the way” with our marketing and engaged drone photos, matter-port tours, professional videos and photos, flyers, calls, emails, and 4 Open Houses! It worked!

We were able to garner multiple offers and the competitive bidding situation helped the home sell for top-dollar so the sellers could quickly be on their way.

My Team Member Had This Listing, and We Met Alena Through Our Open House. We Helped Her Complete a 1031 Exchange To Add This Rental Home To Her Portfolio.

We were able to sell this Lynnwood, WA home to an Open House Buyer participating in a 1031 Exchange the first weekend it came on the market as an ideal investment property.

By giving her “cut to the front of the line” high priority help, we locked up her Lynnwood house under contract and she avoided those taxes!

These First Time Home Buyers Did Not Want To Over-Pay, Even In A Hot Market. We Found A Home That Had Been Languishing On The Market Because It Didn’t Show Well, And Negotiated With The Seller To Get A Deal Locked-In.

Monika and Ravie worked for over 6 months to secure their home without overspending their budget or forgoing protections like an inspection.

They were very patient, stuck to their budget, and didn’t get frustrated, despite a very challenging market in which they wrote offers almost every weekend.

After so long searching together, these clients became good friends… they took ME out to dinner to celebrate their closing!

After fixing up their home and getting new jobs, their next step is buying some investment property or land!

Quaint and Livable Home In Charming Magnolia Neighborhood in Seattle, WA.
We Got Our Buyers Into This Property First and Beat Out Other Early Offers, – Winning This Quaint Home In A Charming Magnolia Neighborhood in Seattle, WA.

“Highly recommend working with Emily Cressey. She helped us buy a house in Magnolia with no craziness. She had the inside track on the sellers and ensured we were the first ones to tour the property and got the offer in super quick. We didn’t have to do any of the crazy stuff that is standard in the market like releasing the escrow or waiving the financing contingency because of the negotiation strategy that Emily had developed for us. She figured out a couple of things that were key to the sellers and made sure that our offer was the most attractive even though we weren’t the highest offer. She is always available and always on top of things and quickly figured out what we wanted after the first weekend looking at houses. In addition, she has a great rolodex of services that you’ll need in this process – lenders, insurance brokers etc.” – Abishek Reddy

Buyers From Canada - To Lake Stevens
My Canadian Buyers Waited Until This Lake Stevens Home Dropped It’s Price, Then Snapped It Up. They Got An Extended Closing Date To Facilitate Their Home Sale And Move.

Jamie and Lisette found Emily on her “Living In Seattle” YouTube Channel. After meeting and deciding to work together, they begin visiting Seattle neighborhoods to see where they would like to live that was close to Jamie’s work and had a great dance studio for their daughter.

They settled on this beautiful custom-built home in Lake Stevens near a wooded greenbelt full of trails and friendly neighbors.

We were able to negotiate an extended closing date while we waited for their home to sell in Canada.

Thanks To Great Strategy From Our Team, This Home Sold With An Early Offer (Even Though I Broke My Arm While Filming The Marketing Video!)

Ian and Carolina were ready to sell their Lake Stevens townhome and head to sunnier climes in Arizona! It was going to be a big move due to their two dogs, two cats, two LARGE fish tanks, and many beautiful house plants. My co-list agent Laura Lee and I helped them stage their home for sale, making it look spacious and move-in ready.

The home was a big hit! We ended up selling it to a buyer who loved it so much, she wrote to tell us she had “tears in her eyes” when she toured the property, she felt so strongly that this should be her next home!

Needless to say those buyers wrote us a very strong “$60K above asking price” offer.

Meg And Jason Bought Their Home Around Christmas Time. They Surprised Their Kids With House Keys Under The Christmas Tree. This Was Their Closing Gift From Us!

“We explained our worries and our needs from the new home. Emily totally understood our situation and was there for us to make it happen! Emily was thoughtful, professional, and effective throughout our transaction.” – Meg

Dan Decided To Replace His Carpet (He Had Dogs and Had Been There For 10 Years) To Get His Home Ready To Sell. With Our Staging and Photography, It Was Ready To Go And Sold In 1 Week.

Dan and his girlfriend were ready to move to a new state…

Together we scrubbed, polished, staged, and photographed their home, along with Laura Lee here at HomeSmart. With aggressive advertising, we packed the house with buyers!

We found a buyer at the Open House the first weekend the home was listed.

14 days later, Dan had cashed out and was riding his motorcycle to Arizona and a fresh start!

With A New Job Downtown, This Condo With A View Was Perfect For Kai Who Had A Strong Interest In Urban Planning And Community Building.

From Day 1, Kai wanted a room with a view.

We looked at several units in Capitol Hill before finding this building in downtown Seattle. After talking with the site-agent of this new-construction building, I identified a unit that was higher up and had a better view than those units that had been listed on the MLS.

It was our little miracle that helped Kai’s dreams come true.

Here’s what Mom had to say:

“Please know that we feel this whole process has been a God thing and that you were gifted to us by the universe! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts and we will be honored to share your name with anyone looking for an awesome, kickass agent. You’re the best!” – Chris, Dawn and Kai

Ray and Tammy were moving down from Canada and were very investment-minded. They looked for a property that had been on the market for a while (even in our hot-hot, low-inventory years) and was poorly presented. Once They Got In, They Fixed It Up And Saw The Value Increase 30% After One Year.

“From the start to the finish of the process, Emily has guided us, and above all, she instilled confidence in us so we can go ahead and buy the home WITHOUT looking at it first hand. I highly recommend Emily to help you buy/sell your house.” – Tammy

Deborah Had A Goal To Get Into A Home Of Her Own By Her Birthday. We Did Get One Under Contract On The Day Of… But It Wasn’t Quite Right, So We Found Another One That Worked Better, And She Was Able To Get In With Almost No Cash Out Of Pocket!

“Emily was so instrumental in helping me find my new home. She was always available for questions and last-minute scheduling. Her kindness and ability to provide a valued experience made all the difference. I’m so thankful for Her. She was quick to respond to my text or emails. We made a great team get to the overall Goal!” – Deborah DeQuier-Bowden

After the death of their parents, these sellers were pretty broken up and had to work together to organize the sale in addition to managing their everyday lives. We worked as a team to coordinate an estate sale of the interior contents, fix-up some paint and carpet issues, and we brought in professional staging. 

With our plan in place, it attracted over 178 showings and 15 offers.

“Emily was a saving grace for our family! She took us under her wing throughout the whole process of preparing and selling my parents home in Bothell. She helped not only deal with the logistical things, but the emotional aspects as well. She went above and beyond by setting up some of the contractors and the home inspection, giving us open ground to figure out what fit our family best with the pre-sale care of the home, going to the home to let contractors in when we were unable, taking the reins with the big mountain of legal paperwork, and most importantly calling when it was the most perfect moment to care for emotional matters.

“She was attentive and interested in making sure you were given just the right amount of information for your personal capacity. She was always enthusiastic throughout the whole process and kept the positive momentum going to help keep us grounded during a sorrowful time. She worked incredibly hard and earned every last penny of her commission. If you want someone who will help guide you through one of the most stressful things you can go through in your life, Emily is the person to pick for your journey.

“Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Emily. We are forever grateful!” – Mel Murray

This Lynnwood home garnered over 22 offers with our marketing plan, and we were able to create a “paper auction” which elevated the offer price by more than the entire listing commission.

Adam and Letty decided to move out of their home (along with their kids and pets) so they could really get it ready to put on the market. They rented a home nearby while they fixed up the paint and flooring – making this house shine.

Their strategy worked.

We got it on the market with a huge launch – professional photos and videos. Flyers, online ads, phone calls, emails.

Through our Open Houses, we met buyers at the property and helped cherry-pick the most interested so we could get their offers in on the property.

I negotiated through the night with a huge field of buyers. One buyer stuck with it, outbidding everyone else, and we finally signed the contract with him at 1:00AM in the morning – setting a new price record for this Lynnwood HOA Community.

These First Time Homebuyers Were Referred By Other Buyers We Had Helped Earlier In The Year. They Used A Great Loan Program to Get A $17,000 Grant Toward Their Down Payment and Closing Costs.

First-Time Home Buyers begin their journey to homeownership & building their real estate empire at a young age.

“My wife and I were referred to Emily as our real estate agent when we bought our first home in Everett. She was insightful, thorough, and extremely helpful as we toured different properties, considered the possibility of a fixer-upper versus something more fancy, and weighed the options near school, work and the price. Emily let us set the pace and let us take our time, which made for a fun and more exciting experience. We actually got the first condo we made an offer on under contract but had to cancel the deal because of issues with the HOA. Emily reassured us that this was fine and an important part of the due diligence process. In the end, we were able to find a home we liked at a comfortable price point, and Emily negotiated for us to not only have an inspection (in today’s competitive market) but also to have some repairs done by the seller. We were so happy when the home finally closed. Even though it was cold and dark, Emily met us at the property with keys in hand to celebrate the move-in together. We enjoyed working with Emily Cressey as our real estate agent and would happily recommend her to others.” – Sam and Tran Webb

Karen is a proud first-time buyer!

Karen was working two jobs when she met me. A single woman, she only had herself to rely on, and a clear goal – she wanted to save up and buy a house of her own. Her dream came true when she decided to lease-purchase a home that I had available.

She took great care of it when she lived there and was able to purchase it after just one year.

The proud look on Karen’s face says it all. This is one of my tenants who was able to purchase her first home – on her own! – after leasing from me for a year! Congratulations, Karen!
