Ross was our buyer agent as we looked for a beach home in the San Juans and Whidbey Island. When we found a place that we were interested in Ross was very prompt to research the property, provide background information, set up viewing times, research comparable properties, and find geotech engineers as needed. Even though we have been homeowners for over 30 years we were novices to the current purchasing process. Ross’s wealth of knowledge and attention to detail gave us full confidence as he ...
Ross was wonderful to work with, and we felt like we were in the best hands possible throughout the entire process. He provided great advice and wisdom, but also supported us in our decisions-- doing everything he could to make sure we had the best chance to get the house we truly wanted. Following our purchase, he's made sure we have everything we need and gone the extra mile to help us get settled in. Great experience and we're thrilled with our new home.
We recently purchased our first home and Ross Hartwich was our broker. My husband, Tomas, works at Google in Fremont and I stay home with our 18 month old son. When we started the house search we were very overwhelmed. Especially after hearing hearing horror stories from friends about bidding wards starting on houses. Tomas wanted to be able to walk or bike to work, so the areas we could live in were a little limited.
After meeting Ross, he sent me new properties to look at every day. We had ...
Thank you for your hard work and attentiveness. We’ll continue to refer family and friends! Ross made us feel like we were the only clients he was working with!
We love Ross! Excellent job!
Thanks for all your help during the process. We appreciate very much the fun process and the warm friendship!
Superb job considering long-distance negotiations and difficult seller.
Happy to be a reference anytime!
I'd give you 5s on a few more things as well:
Staying within my price range and not trying to "up-sell" me
Making me feel like you had my best interests at heart by talking me out of a condo with high HOA dues and into a TH with better potential for re-sell value
Being knowledgeable about the market, Seattle neighborhoods, and all the "working parts" of a house-- roof, sewers, heating, plumbing, electrical, etc.
Being enthusiastic, patient, and down to earth and fun to be with-- ...
Thanks so much for all of your hard work. The late night calls, questions, and support didn't go unnoticed. We will be recommending you all over the place. Mario and I are over the moon about the new house and we know without you we might not be there now. We love you! Thanks again.
Thank you so much for guiding us through this difficult market with wisdom and patience. You went above and beyond.
Ross was invaluably helpful with the sale of my condo. Being out of state, Ross went above and beyond taking care of all small details which I could not. He is knowledgeable and thorough, couldn't have asked for a better agent!
We really appreciate the hard work you put into getting us this home- you definitely went the extra mile (especially helping me schedule my hardwood floor contractors!) We are very pleased with our purchase. We will definitely be referring our friends to you when they look for a home.
Ross made selling our townhome so easy for us. He was able to coordinate an army of subcontractors (paint, carpet, landscape, general repairs, staging, photography, and probably others) in very short window of time to get the house ready for the market. He was very responsive to all of our questions and comments and always carried a warm smile. Ross was also flexible with times meeting times to fit it into our busy schedules.
We would certainly work with Ross again and will pass on our highe...
Ross is a stellar real estate broker who goes the extra mile for his clients. We just purchased our first ever home (in Ballard) and Ross guided us through this difficult market with wisdom and patience as we conducted our search. He was recommended by our loan officer at Homestreet (Gail Bean, also great), who mentioned he has a high success rate at winning offers in our competitive market. He is low pressure, extremely knowledgeable of the Seattle market and neighborhoods, and, frankly is a ge...
Ross Hartwich went over and beyond the call of duty as a Realtor. We had a positive buy and sell experience with Ross and was by far the best Realtor we have worked with. Ross gave us great guidance and made both processes as smooth as possible.
We are thankful for his work efforts and for sure will recommend him to all who are in need of a Realtor. We love our new home!
We are very happy with our whole home buying experience!
Thank you so much! You were a huge part of making this process so easy for us.
Ross is one of the best. I've been through the buying process before, however, this time it was selling AND buying. Negotiating the difficult Seattle market, my insane schedule, plus a tight budget didn't even seem to bother him a bit. Ross listens to his clients, taking into account the lifestyle, financial means, and individual needs and constructs a plan that puts as little stress on his client as possible.
We have nothing but positive things to say about Ross. Our home search in Seattle was mostly remote, as we were living out of state. From the very beginning Ross was considerate and cognizant of our time constraints and he was diligent to follow up with any question or concern that we raised.
We began looking at home with another company, but they weren't able to find new construction, non-listed homes very easily. On our own we found a home that we were curious about and contacted the listi...
