"Cari helped us find our ideal home in Olympia in 2013. It took almost 6 months but she was very patient, helpful and insightful. 6 months! That was a lot of properties to drive to and see, a lot of houses in many different conditions. Cari never pushed a sale. She would just stand back and let us see things for ourselves, while being always there to answer questions or get answers for us. That, by itself, is invaluable help.
Now, in 2015, we were ready to sell and she helped us sell our house in record time. That meant the price she suggested was right on and the logistics she did (description, listing, flyers, marketing) superb. She also handled all the negotiations and other issues that arose, greatly reducing our stress levels. All the while, she was very professional and maintained her wonderful sense of humor through all the fray. She promised, she delivered, and we're very grateful"
