Karen F: It has been over three months since we closed the door to our home of 12 years for the last time, ready to move on to a new life's adventure. All of the anxiety and emotional toils of having to move through the sales process had been minimized by our listing agents and we had been given expert guidance and attention. We had experienced class act representation throughout. What a relief, and a job well done by Jennifer Saez and Susan Lorenz, They were spot on with mapping out what our expectations should be for the sale of the house and for following through every step to assure an on target closing. From pricing to photography to staging and open houses, to inspections and repairs and plowing through paperwork, they were always detailed and on top of it. They even managed to ease the sting of having to leave a home we loved by sharing how the new owners were charmed by it when it became theirs. I would insist that Susan and Jennifer become a consideration of agency with anyone interested in selling or purchasing property as they are knowledgeable, directed and professional.
Liz S: Susan and Jennifer are incredibly professional and knowledgeable. They sold our home and also represented us in the purchase of our new home. They know the real estate market as well as the community. They are honest, thorough and responsive.
Jeanne G: I met Susan and Jennifer at an open house. I am so impressed with their knowledge about Bainbridge Island as well as their professionalism. I highly recommend working with them! Jennifer grew up on Bainbridge and Susan moved to Bainbridge from out of state - combined they have what it takes to find you the best home and get established in the community!
Leanne F: Jennifer and Susan really the perfect team. Just shy of a year ago, we made the big leap from the Midwest to the Seattle area and being new to the area, we decided to rent first. We found a place that sounded good on Bainbridge Island, but we would have to sign our rental agreement without seeing the place first. A little nervous, we did some searching and called Jennifer and Susan. They agreed to scope out the apartment for us, no questions asked. Their detailed research and candid feedback made us confident in our decision. After renting for 6 months, we decided it was time to buy on Bainbridge Island. Again, we called Jennifer and Susan to help us through this journey. They listened to our wants and needs and also gave us great information about the Bainbridge Island market. Jennifer grew up in this area, so she brings great perspective on the community and how it has developed. Susan grew up in the Midwest as well, so she brings a great outsiders perspective. With this combination, we felt confident that our home was going to meet all our needs and it would be a pleasurable buying experience. We couldn't have been more right; those two exceeded our expectations and went above and beyond each and every house we looked at. If you're looking to relocate to Bainbridge, Jennifer and Susan are the best you can find.
John R: We wanted to buy a good home for a good price, in a good neighborhood. We didn't want to feel rushed, ripped off or like we missed something for not moving fast enough. Susan Lorenz took the time to understand us, to learn about our priorities, our interests and our styles. She must have paid attention because it was only the second home Susan suggested to us that we now call home! Between Susan and her partner Jennifer Saez we had a team that worked together seamlessly to provide everything from prompt phone call and email responses to tracking down roofing experts. Susan and Jennifer will be our first call and our first recommendation for all things real estate on Bainbridge Island and the surrounding areas.
