Testimonials

Trusted for both buying and selling

OIR helped us find the perfect place to build our home on Orcas Island. Our agent “got” what we were looking for, didn’t waste our time with places that didn’t fit, and helped us get our piece of paradise at a good price. Eight years later, they helped us sell our island home. She provided valuable insights for staging, and pricing, and negotiating with the ultimate buyers. Buying and selling real estate can be a stressful process. Our agent had this wonderful ability, surely honed by years of experience, to make it very much less so.

Great long-distance communication

Orcas Island Realty made our 30 year dream of owning a beach-front family retreat a reality. This is our 5th home purchase in the past 40 years and was by far the most pleasant which says a lot considering we were working long-distance. Their constant communication, local professional knowledge, numerous industry contacts, and negotiating skills combined to find the perfect property for our family which was skillfully negotiated within our budget.

Helped navigate a frustrating transaction

Our broker helped us navigate one of the more frustrating “short sales” seen locally (9 months from start to finish). She was patient, professional, and courteous. Multiple trips to the home, several iterations with paperwork, and diligent correspondence with Bank of America (not easy to talk with!) all paid off. Yes, I would recommend Orcas Island Realty.

Completely trusted her advice

We purchased a property on Orcas through Orcas Island Realty after looking for a long time. Our broker helped us narrow our criteria and define our goals, and showed us only properties that would work for us. She was extremely knowledgeable and honest about values, location, local culture, etc., and I felt that our interests were very well looked after. She was not in it to make a quick or pressured sale, but to be sure we got what we wanted. Our agent was also very helpful and skilled with advice about the negotiation process and the legal aspects of the purchase. I completely trusted her advice. Not only was she a consummate professional, she made the process FUN. I enjoyed working with her immensely, and she has always been available and responsive with follow-up questions about the property, the market, and life on the island. I would certainly use her again and would highly recommend her to all my friends.
