As a former realtor myself, I was impressed with Lisa’s level of client rapport and communication. Not only is she extemely knowledgeable about the market but has a keen eye for the best deals. Throughout the transaction process you will find she is a skilled negotiator, with a superior attention to detail. You definitely want Lisa on your side of the table! I always recommend her to my friends and business contacts who are looking to buy or sell real estate because I know they will be in great hands!
I worked with Lisa to both sell my home in Ballard and then purchase a condo in Bothell in an extremely competitive market. Lisa’s advice was spot on – everything she told me to do to get the house ready for the market paid off. Her recommendations for stagers, painters and contractors were stellar; I got multiple bids and the people she recommended came in lower, did great work, and were efficient, on time, and on budget. Once Lisa sold my Ballard home, she helped me find the perfect condo in Bothell, and negotiated a complicated situation with the sellers and their agents to ensure I got the best possible deal. The real estate market in summer 2016 was crazy and homes were getting multiple offers over asking, all cash offers, and buyers were waiving all contingencies. I could never have survived the craziness without Lisa’s diplomacy and skill, tempered with her down to earth approach, sense of humor, and laser focus on closing on the perfect property. I recommend Lisa without reservations and can’t imagine working with anyone else!
Lisa is an incredibly efficient and knowledgeable agent. Her perspective of the market, her insight into how to sell the home, is what really set her apart.
It’s simple. If you are selling your home, do as she recommends. If she suggests staging, do it. If she suggests a particular value, do it. After following her recommendations to stage my home, approve the pre-inspection, de-clutter and to make the home less personal, we had a mutual agreement five days after the home was officially put on the market.
And not just my home. I referred Lisa to a friend of mine, and his home had a mutual agreement in short time as well. Prior to my friend hiring Lisa, he spent MONTHS with another agent. As he was losing hope in selling his home, and had been recently layed off, Lisa helped him sell his home in record time.
Hire Lisa. You cannot go wrong.
I highly recommend Lisa. She is smart, experienced, honest, friendly, practical and a great communicator. Her help was invaluable in selling a relative’s condominium for a very good price, and her professionalism plus common sense combined to make this a smooth transaction. We felt very confident once she was on board. Selling a property can be stressful, but a great agent like Lisa makes all the difference in the process as well as the outcome.
Lisa worked with us as well as our daughter and son in law on purchase and sales. She gets top marks in every area of the processes. She is a calming influence in stressful circumstances. She is knowledgable and professional. And every time we needed an outside resource , she had a contact : painters, carpet cleaners, HVAC, you name it . They were all reasonable and reliable. Highest recommendation !
Lisa helped me find the right home, provided guidance during purchase negotiations and stayed involved through and after the closing. Easy to work with. Highly recommend.
Lisa impressed us right out of the gate with her knowledge of our specific area and neighborhood. She kept us apprised of every step of the process throughout selling our home and was incredibly responsive to our questions. I would absolutely work with Lisa again and would highly recommend her to others.
Lisa Hjorten is a truly professional broker! Not only she helped me sell the unit at a premium price, but also helped me find the right home that fits my daily needs. She is open, respectful, and insightful professional! Thank you very much for truly outstanding work!
Lisa is an amazing agent, who gracefully combines both talent and experience. She has an incredible sense of the market and where a particular property fits – giving her an almost uncanny ability to maximize on your best opportunity (either as a seller or buyer).
We have sold several homes over the past 8 years, but the right agent can transform your experience from a good offer, to an amazing one. With Lisa’s guidance we had multiple offers over asking, the first weekend.
She is an incredible asset. Call her!
We have purchased several rental investment properties with Lisa. She knows the areas that will be great for investing, found numerous candidates, and helped us analyze each property. She also guided us through the best practices and tools for managing our properties and we know we can count on her when we have questions.
Working with Lisa gave me tremendous surety. Because of her expertise in buying for rental income, she thought of key insights that made a difference for me in terms of what I bought and where I bought. She made the whole process very efficient and was there for me every step of the way.
