Steve did a great job representing us during the home purchase.

It was our 4th different home purchase and was by far the easiest and least stressful transaction.

C Samuelson (Manager)

Buying a house can be intimidating and seem impossible, Debbie pushed us through all the worries with nothing but honest strait answers that will put you at ease while you battling the house market, she is a trooper with full professionalism while representing you and she even has a great mortgage connections that make her a total package.

You wouldn't be doing yourself justice if you didnt atleast contact her and see what's she has to offer, I am happy that we did:)

Tam Ryan Gooch (Inventory control manager )

Thank you, Kent, for helping us all along the way to find our goldilocks property!

I am sure you wondered if any of the wild goose chases we were sending you on would amount to anything, so thank you for your patience and perseverance in helping us with our search. Also for fielding all the escrow forms and liaison work with them and the seller's agent. I very much appreciate your calm and friendly demeanor throughout the process.

Therese S Gesell (Community member)

Awesome job!

I moved from California and she gave me her honest opinion about neighborhoods which helped a lot since I was not familiar with the area. Thanks to Debbie I was able to get a great house with an amazing view and close escrow just after my move to Washington. Looking forward to working with her in the future.

Luis Dominguez (Engineer)

We happened upon Debbie's office by chance and with no appointment we just wandered in.

She was immediately helpful and clearly new realestate. She became our agent and within 2 days we were putting an offer on a house. Nothing but good things to say about both Debbie and everyone that works with her. She and her team were very professional and super responsive to any and all inquiries/questions I had. I would highly recommend Debbie to anyone looking for a house in and around the Seattle area. They were a great team to work with.

Gary Huskey (Grants Specialist)

Linda Moore

Words cannot express how thankful and blessed we were to have Debbie as our agent.

She walked us thru every step of the process and was very transparent with what needed to be done on our end and gave us realistic expectations and her honest opinions. Everything that we could have wanted in a real estate agent we found in Debbie, she truly is the best. We cannot imagine how different it could have been without Debbie and she is now a part of our family and we will definitely use her in the sale of our current home purchase of our new one.

Jamie & Calvin Coates (Seller)

I have known Kent for many years.

Recently I needed to assist my mother-in-law sell her home in Everett. He answered all of her questions and guided us through the inspection process and then recommended a very good firm to make some necessary repairs.

I would highly recommend Kent to anyone.

Kent was very helpful in selling our house.

He did a thorough job preparing our house to sell...his knowledge of construction made the preparation/inspection of the property seemless. Overall Kent was dedicated to us, listened to our concerns and attentive to our needs throughout the selling process.

Peter Lee (Wealth Advisor / Business Owner)

Debbie was amazing!

My husband and I were first time home buyers so you can imagine how stressed out we were about the whole process. Debbie made it so that we understood each and every step. Her patience with us throughout the 6 month process was wonderful. She really cares about her customers. I would definitely recommend her to anyone of my coworkers and friends! Two thumbs up!

Jasmyne igbodipe (Corporate Recruiter )

If you’re looking for a review that is sugar coated this isn’t it.

Kent was exactly what I needed to sell my house. We started off by reviewing the entire house so I could develop the “fix up list”. Doing this gave me an idea of the time required to get my house ready for the market. Kent gave me ideas along with suggestions that would help when we went to market with an asking price. All along during my project Kent checked in on the items and was very pleased with the outcome and time line. We went to market and exceeded my expectations on a final price. What a great outcome it was after all the time that was put into getting my house ready. I can honestly say Kent has wisdom beyond his years and I could highly recommend him to anyone that will get someone that tells you without that sugar coating that others provide. It is still very nice to work with someone that shakes your hand and looks you straight in the eyes and says thank you for using me as your agent. I hope we can all get to that again.

Greg Hooker

Kents excellent service, frequent communication, professionalism and dependability, made the buying process so much easier for us!

His honesty, attention to detail as well as his knowledge of the current market was spot on! Kent was quick to return calls, answer questions and advise us on matters concerning the buying process. He contacted us regularly, even when we hadn't called him just to keep us informed on transactions. Kent made sure that paper work was in order, deadlines were met, and our closing went smoothly. We truly enjoyed working with Kent! Kent went above and beyond and we would certainly recommend his services to anyone that is interested in buying or selling a home! Thanks a million, Kent!

Nancy Hylton (Home purchaser)

It was a long process selling the lake front property, first the survey, changing the title, amendments to the closing date.

Kent was there through out and guided us through the process until the sale closed. Kent helped with getting us the proper forms, finding a surveyor and even helped clean up the property. If in the future I should sale my home I would contact Kent.

Debbie is a consummate professional who really knows and understands the challenging Seattle real estate market.

I am completely amazed how quickly things moved once our offer was accepted and how absolutely flawless this transaction was executed. I whole heartedly recommend Debbie and the NextHome NW Experts!

Michael Lawson (Business Analytics Specialist)

Scott did an amazing job.

He worked on this land deal beginning during the pandemic. We received five offers. Land is not an easy thing to sell. We will be using him again to sell our rental when the tenant vacates. I highly recommend him.

caprice CARDINAL (Retired)

Scott was awesome.

.. Met him completely by accident, but feel like I have known him for years. Once we identified Snoqualmie Pass, WA. as the area we wanted to be, we explored around on our own, met Scott and then returned to Ohio. Scott continued the search and went out and looked at each property, plus a few more that he knew of that were about to be listed. He walked the properties personally and sent numerous photos. His local knowledge of water rights, building permits, easements, and otherwise, is excellent. The best thing I can say is he treats your next property as if it was his own!

Tracy Lewis (President)

Debbie did such a wonderful job at assisting my wife and I in finding a forever home.

During the house hunting process, she would look at the home as if she were buying it herself and point out the things that concerned her about each home and what the highlights were as well. She was straightforward and honest about every placed we viewed. You can tell she is really passionate about her job and helping others find their perfect home. Her experience in her field really shows. I highly recommend her.

Eric james
