Thanksgiving with the Gals

What a year! Seattle’s real estate market has made life crazy this year, with bidding wars and low inventory and an influx of newcomers. But it’s been a good year. The craziness keeps things interesting. And we’re thankful for a whole host of other reasons.

We’re thankful, first off, for our unbelievable clients. I don’t know how it happens, but we somehow manage to consistently work with the best people in Seattle. From John and Kelly to Bettykay and Robb to Kate and Jeremy to everyone else—it’s been a blast. You all make this work genuinely fun. I couldn’t think of anyone else I’d rather help buy and sell houses.

And we’re thankful for Agents of Change, too. A group of amazing real estate people came together this year to give back to Mary’s Place, and we’re making a real impact. We’re hosting a Holiday clothing drive right now, and besides helping the kids at Mary’s Place… this is fun. Agents of Change is a wholesome, supportive community, and we’re thrilled to be a part of it.

We’re also thankful for Mallory! Mallory Victor joined our team this year, and we couldn’t be happier. She cares about people and community, and she takes to real estate like no one else. Mallory fits into the Real Estate Gals perfectly.

And of course, we’re thankful for family and friends, and we’re thankful for our pets, and we’re thankful for vacations like Johnine’s Europe trip this summer. And last—but not least!—we’re thankful for Seattle. We love this city. We’re excited to see how it changes in these coming years, and we’re even more excited that we get to be a part of it.

Thank you, everyone. It’s a good life we have, and we get to share it with people we love. And with that, I’m off to make the most of this Thanksgiving weekend!

    Darcie was such a joy to work with. She felt like family during the sale of our house and the search for our new home. We may have found our forever home, but if we ever need a Realtor in future, Darcie from Real Estate Gals will be our first call.

    I have worked with Johnine and her team for 19 years and have always received personal, knowledgeable and professional service and attention! There is never and pressure and they will guide you away from a property when appropriate, which is always appreciated when a market is hot and the tendency is to move quickly. I trust them and have never been let down!

    Johnine Larsen is fabulous! She listened and came up with ways we could get what we wanted in a house and stay within our limited budget. When we found the house we wanted, she moved super fast to get the house inspected and implemented creative ideas to make our offer appealing. And out of 13 offers, we were selected and got our house. I recommend her to anyone buying a home.

    Real Estate Gals made sure we found our perfect house! Then, when we were up against other bidders, Johnine worked tirelessly to ensure we were tops! Her extensive real estate experience combined with exceptional character and integrity provided peace of mind throughout the process. She also made sure we received the right value as a seller and got the transaction done quickly and efficiently. Simply stated: there is nobody better to help you find your dream home.

    I'd give Real Estate Gals 6 stars if I could. We have used them multiple times, both in selling and buying homes in Seattle and the surrounding area. I can't say enough about the professionalism, knowledge, and patience they bring to the task of buying a new home, or selling your current residence. And they know the Seattle area so well, they'll offer valuable insights into the pros and cons of any location you may be to considering. Look no further, call Johnine at Real Estate Gals. You will be glad you did!

    Johnine was a breath of fresh air in the real estate market. She listened intently to our wishes and goals, and was tireless in her search for our perfect house. She is well versed in both Seattle and the surrounding areas. She made sure all the details were taken care of after the inspection, and made the closing process seamless. She even gifted us with a housewarming present. Nearly 7 years later, we still receive holiday cards and well wishes. I highly recommend Real Estate Gals and will look no further in the future.

    Johnine and the Real Estate Gals brilliantly took us through the home buying process two different times. Their willingness to educate (I was new), hear our home hopes, and support us through the process are a few of the reasons that I highly recommend this team. Speaking of a team, I love their collaborative business model - it meant that we--the home buyers--always had a returned phone call and an ability to look at a house on OUR schedule. Truly felt like they place the customer first!
