“I’m busy… how can I sell it with as little of my time as possible but put the most money in our pockets?“
Seattle Real Estate Agent Emily Cressey Will Help YOU Sell Your House or Condo For Top Dollar.
How We Put More Money In YOUR Pocket. (Not Ours.)
Many local Puget Sound real estate brokers can “list” your house. Many even charge cut-rate fees to do it. But selling a home for top dollar takes much more than just plopping a house on the MLS. If you can get your property in front of the right buyers, at the right times, with the right marketing message… your chances of selling faster for a higher price increase in big ways. At the end of the day, we are here to help you have a smooth experience and net more money in your pocket. We cut no corners to sell your Seattle-area house fast, and charge a reasonable commission.
Here’s how it works…
PRICE: First, we’ll take a look at your property and provide you with a Value Report.
PREPARATION: We believe the most important thing you can do to help your home sell for top dollar is to prepare the home so buyers have a first-rate experience. We will help you get your home ready for the market, and invest our OWN FUNDS in order to do so.
PROMOTION: Once your home goes “live” in the marketplaces, we will be ALL OVER the implementation of the marketing plan we’ve laid out together. Marketing is our bread-and-butter and one of the things that really helps us get your home sold quickly and for top dollar.

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.
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!
Nick and Tink sold their home due to relocation for work.
“When my wife and I decided to sell our home in Marysville, WA, we got referred to Emily Cressey by our pastor. Emily came out and helped us plan what to do and when to do it since we didn’t have very much time to get the house ready before our move out of state. From furniture arranging, cleaning, professional photography, videos and drone shots – Emily got the job done when it came to marketing our home. We had a big open house, and we could see on our ring camera how people were lining up outside to come in and see the home. Buyers started sending us offers the first day the home came on the market, but we held fast, waiting to see what the market would bring us. Because Emily was familiar with the market values in the area through her research, we had a good idea of what to expect and when we got an incredibly strong early offer, we decided to take it and sold our home for 35% over the asking price. Emily’s professionalism, organization and marketing really came through for us and we were thrilled, and so was the buyer. We would happily refer her to others and have actually already done so!” – Nick H.
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.
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.
“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.
