    "You would be lucky to have the pleasure to work with her!"

    Sarah-Cate is truly an exceptional real estate professional. Given the challenging market for Seattle buyers, I worked with her for almost a year and through multiple bidding wars- winning my new home, which is perfect for me and she helped to negotiate a great price with thoughtful advice based on her experience and pulse on recent transactions in the immediate area.Sarah- Cate is warm, responsive, very well-versed in the market, and always went the extra mile for me. I often had questions about properties that required more of her time to answer (what is the plan for the empty lot next door? what is the cost of replacing a failing retaining wall? where exactly is the unclear property line?) and she always quickly researched an answer and often even did extra discovery before we visited a property in anticipation of my questions. She also is well versed in home maintenance and attended inspections to learn more than can be gleaned from the written report. Sarah-Cate spent an inordinate amount of time showing me properties and negotiating deals- all with a smile and positive energy. I have worked with a number of agents over the years to both buy and sell homes, but Sarah-Cate is by far the best. I would highly recommend her services. You would be lucky to have the pleasure to work with her!

    "Sarah-Cate is an absolutely stellar agent!"

    Sarah-Cate is an absolutely stellar agent. As a public school teacher, I never thought I'd be able to get a house in Seattle. Not only was she was excellent at finding great options for me in and near Seattle, she also connected me with the right mortgage lenders and inspectors.She helped me through each stressful snag. She gave me honest and expert advice about each house. I felt like she really understood my needs and tailored our search and offers to maximize my chances. I'm stunned that I actually got a place in Seattle, and I owe a lot to her experience and hard work. Not only am I likely to recommend her, I already have.

    "Sarah-Cate is a very trustworthy, responsible and dedicated realtor!"

    Sarah-Cate is a very trustworthy, responsible and dedicated realtor. Patiently negotiated with the seller during the process of purchasing my plot of land to get the most out of it. Also gave me very much support in areas related to the land parcels. I recommend her to everyone first.

    "She was diligent and knowledgeable and quick to reply!"

    Sarah-Cate was referred to us by our daughter who had a great experience with her while buying her first house. We were looking for the retirement house remotely, during COVID restrictions, and with very low inventory in the area of our interest. After giving Sara-Cate our requirements,our cooperation went smoothly and we felt very comfortable working with her. She was diligent and knowledgeable and quick to reply any time. She was honest and transparent, and always answered a lot of questions we had, and provided helpful recommendations and comps about the area. All her hard work brought satisfying results for us. Process of buying house is seldom a breeze but with the great professional and experienced real estate agent like Sarah-Cate, it can be much less stressful and happier.

    "Sarah-Cate is hands-down the best realtor!"

    Sarah-Cate is hands-down the best realtor we have worked with. Her attention to detail, organization, and responsiveness are only a few of the attributes that made her so amazing to work with. She assisted us both in the sale of our home and purchase of a new one- both in the North Seattle area.We looked at many properties all over greater Seattle. Her guidance in how to write our offer and make it most competitive was most certainly a factor in landing us the home that we were able to purchase. We are now on a lovely tree-lined street, close to amazing schools, restaurants, and know that this is a home that we can love for a long time. I would be more than happy to recommend Sarah-Cate to anyone and would be just as happy to have her represent us again.

    "Her thoroughness allowed me to be confident in my decision making!"

    Sarah-Cate recently helped me purchase a condo in Edmonds and she was wonderful to work with. She was very patient with me as I changed my mind several times regarding what I wanted and walked me through the process so that I understood everything clearly.She read through so many pages of condo by laws and pointed out possible issues that I overlooked and contacted the HOA's for clarification whenever needed. Her thoroughness allowed me to be confident in my decision making. She is friendly and professional and was frank with me. She also did a great job negotiating with the seller agent to make sure everything in the inspection report was addressed and taken care of so I had peace of mind at closing.

    "She went above and beyond for us!"

    We recently had the pleasure of working with Sarah-Cate throughout the process of selling our townhome and purchasing our new house. Throughout the selling process, we were consistently amazed at how much she made us feel like we were her only customers, when we knew we weren’t!We were regularly updated on the status of viewings and interested buyers, and always kept in the loop about changes to the market. SC’s list of contacts for stagers and contractors is impressive, and easy to conform to any budget. We had very few comps to the townhome in our area, so through much of the process we would have been flying blind if it wasn’t for placing 100% trust in SC’s expertise. In the end, we were thrilled to have found lovely buyers who came in at our asking price, and we couldn’t have been happier! When we were finally able to start looking for houses, SC made the process simple and painless. We again put full trust in her as we navigated the market. Her keen eye for details helped us weed out homes that seemed to be in our price range at first look, but would have ended up sinking our budget in the long run. When we happened upon our eventual home, SC’s assertiveness got us a viewing immediately, two days earlier than scheduled. We fell in love with the home right away, and were grateful for SC being with us to verify it was the real deal. She went above and beyond for us, befriending the sellers and helping us strike a deal in order to avoid a bidding war we wouldn’t have been able to win. The whole buying process only took a month for us, and we could not have done it without Sarah-Cate! We honestly can’t say enough good things about SC’s professionalism, expertise, and trustworthiness. She’s an absolute joy to work with and is number one at the top of our list of recommended real estate agents!

    "Sarah-Cate was really fun to work with!"

    We met Sarah Cate at a home buying class. We were first-time homebuyers with very little knowledge about the whole process. Sarah Cate helped us get connected with a local lender and she patiently walked us through the steps from “sold searching”, inspection, looking for signs of problems,commenting on the quality of construction to details of negotiation and making an offer. She is very intuitive, professional, responsive and always on top of things. Although house hunting could be very tiring, it never felt like a drag because Sarah Cate was really fun to work with. She’s got great energy and you know she really likes what she does. We never felt forced to make an offer and she respects our needs and preference. When we finally found the house for us, the whole negotiation and closing was a breeze. We’ve been in touch with her even after closing and she’s been helpful by recommending contractors for renovation projects. We feel really lucky to have found a realtor who’s got our back and we highly recommend her if you’re looking for a realtor who is trustworthy and could help get you a home that you are looking for especially in this crazy competitive market.

    "Sarah-Cate is professional, courteous, extremely responsive!"

    Sarah-Cate helped us both and sell within Seattle's crazy market and we were incredibly thankful for her patience, expertise, and insane amount of skill with navigating through the entire process. For buying - Sarah-Cate put up with us constantly looking at properties all across the board.Since we were unsure of what neighborhoods we wanted, we toured a LOT of houses. Sarah-Cate was able to book us appointments and meet us same day for almost all of them (which is especially impressive considering the additional restrictions for COVID). She would proactively reach out to the seller's agent and get us things like the inspection, sewer report, and seller's disclosure if we were super interested in a place to make sure we had an informed decision about moving forward or not. When we finally DID find a place to purchase, Sarah-Cate spent almost a full day at the property to work with the inspector, to get the sewer scoped and to make sure we felt comfortable with making our offer with as much information as we could get. Thankfully we only had to make a single offer on a single home thanks to her and her team's insights into the market, what to expect for escalations, and what we should steer clear from (we almost bought a house with a rock holding up one corner of the foundation until she and her team talked us out of it! That would have been a disaster). She helped us get through the closing process with no issues, and even bought us a wonderful "welcome home" gift as we moved in. After we bought, we moved and put our other place up for sale and I think this is where Sarah-Cate shines even more (if that was possible). She has AMAZING taste and was able to help us find a home stager that made the place look absolutely stunning. On top of that, she made all of the marketing materials, hired an amazing photographer and got our home in perfect condition for the sale in a WEEK (so fast). When the house went on the market, she stayed in constant communication about number of visitors, how interested certain parties were, and what we should expect given the amount of folks coming through. We had an offer review date for a week later, but had so many offers we ended up closing early - and selling in CASH. TL;DR - Sarah-Cate is professional, courteous, extremely responsive, has amazing contacts for everything you need to finance, inspect, stage, photograph and buy and sell your home! She's awesome (which explains why she's part of the Awesome Nossum group...). If we ever buy and sell again, you better believe we'll be repeat customers.
