When we sold our house in California we thought we had found the greatest real estate agent in the world. She was fantastic! In addition, as you know, my sister was a real estate agent and was our agent when we bought our first house on Bainbridge six years ago. She also was phenomenal. And then....we happened to meet the two of you at an open house a few months ago. It was like finding a double-barrel, fully loaded, action packed, two-for-the-price of one heat-seeking missile. (Now there is a mixed metaphor!) Your knowledge of the island and its people, help with so many things - especially while we are out of town, enthusiasm, resourcefulness, information about who to contact, friendliness, and consistently good advice was amazing. And, yet, you left the decisions entirely up to us, were not pushy, were endlessly patient, and always supportive. We were blessed to have met you and to have worked with you. You are an amazing team!
The experience with Carii and Tom was off the charts. I am an executive in real estate services , a seasoned real estate buyer/seller/investor married to a 1031 exchange attorney. My wife and I have a combined 45 years in the business and are no strangers to realtors and the buying experience. Needless to say, we are not easily impressed. All that being said, we experienced a broker with patience expertise and perseverance. Our time started with a tour of the area as we are from Southern California. We were shown multiple properties and went in with a full background on those we had selected and others they thought might fit. They took the time to listen to our needs, wants and desires and then helped us navigate the area in a way that we have never seen. True area expertise, guidance and follow up. Carii and Tom are Real Estate Rock Stars! If you are looking for an amazing experience, call them. They will not disappoint.
Carii is the best. I first met Carii when I was a tenant in a Seattle apartment building that she was tasked with selling. Although she was certainly under no obligation to do so, Carii did her utmost to ensure that I was minimally disturbed during the sale process. I was impressed by her integrity and her obvious willingness to go above and beyond. When my parents and I started looking for a family home in the Bainbridge area, Carii was the obvious choice. Carii maintained a relationship with us despite several setbacks - including backing out of two purchases due to inspection issues. She is unfailingly patient and thorough. She has handled one transaction for me in 2016 and I anticipate more in the future as more of my family slowly relocates to the Pacific Northwest. The local market here is brutal. Hours matter and diligence under pressure is paramount. Carii worked around the clock on our behalf, and always took the time to discuss every aspect of what was going on. She is also highly strategic, twice proposing that I make a lower offer than I initially intended - both times accepted! Thanks to Carii, my eventual purchase went through quickly and smoothly. I highly recommend Carii and her very capable business partner and husband, Tom.
Her responsiveness is second to none and she always went the extra mile to make the home buying process smooth and care free. Carii’s professionalism and genuine care separate her from her peers. She always gets it done! I cannot thank her enough and highly recommend her
