Testimonials

From California to West Seattle

"Trevor was fantastic to work with while searching for and eventually closing on our West Seattle home. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the Seattle market and got us on a competitive footing right away. We appreciated his honest opinion on all of the homes that we looked at and his insights were invaluable along the way to finding and winning our beautiful home. In such a competitive market you need an agent that is 100% on top of things and Trevor was definitely that. The whole process was a breeze and we would recommend Trevor to all of our friends and family." - Bob & Allison

West Seattle Townhouse

"We would not have gotten our home if not for Trevor. His knowledge and efficiency throughout the home buying process gave us complete confidence in him and because of the offer he wrote, we got the house we wanted. First offer accepted, beating out five others! Trevor truly cares about getting people into the right home for them. When we sell our home it will be with him, and when we buy another one, it will be with him. I would never even consider using anyone else!" - Tony & Laurie

First Time Homebuyers- New Construction

"Trevor was highly recommended by my co-worker who's sold & purchased a house with him. And I'm so very glad that we got to know him and work with him. We just moved into our first home in Bothell and we could not have done it without Trevor. He truly wanted to make sure we were taken care of and happy. I was 100% sure that he would do everything in his power to make things work out for our benefit. Buying a first home is overwhelming and Trevor walked us through each step and answered any and all questions. My husband and I knew what we didn't want, but we needed someone who knows more to help us out during the hunt. Trevor was amazing at noticing things that we didn't because we just loved the house and that's exactly what we needed. He never said, don't buy this house or anything along that line but he would point things out for us so we can think about it. Good and the bad. He was always honest! He was always available when we had questions. Text, email or phone. He would get back within an hour and if he couldn't, he would respond within an hour to let you know when he can get back to you. I would highly recommend and would not hesitate to work with Trevor again." - Misun & Derek

North Beacon Hill buyer

Trevor was a delight to work with! He helped us get an offer accepted on a beautiful house in the competitive Seattle market only 12 days after we started looking at houses. We were able to close a month later. Trevor is enthusiastic, friendly, and very committed to the interests of his clients. We came in with little to no understanding of how the housing market worked, but Trevor was very patient and answered all of our questions. While we were fortunate to close quickly, Trevor assured us very genuinely at the outset that he would happily go with us to as many showings as we would like. Every step of this process went smoothly, which I largely attribute to Trevor. I can't recommend him enough! - Ashleigh & Jay

From Michigan to West Seattle

"My wife and I worked with Trevor to buy our first home and it was a great experience! Trevor was a true asset in our home search - thanks to Trevor's advice and professionalism we were able to put together a winning offer on our dream home, despite several competing offers. Once our offer was accepted, Trevor hand managed the closing process to ensure it went finished flawlessly and on-time. He even went above and beyond after closing... which was super impressive! It isn't like we closed and he disappeared. He is extremely professional, clearly enjoys helping buyers find their dream home, and will constantly work to put whats in the client's best interest first! It was a pleasure working with Trevor and I would recommend him to any of my friends. " - Thom & Amanda

West Seattle Townhouse

"Trevor has been very helpful and available throughout our home search process. We never felt like we were rushed or pressured to get a place. Trevor always told us that it was about us and we can take as long as we want. He provided valuable feedback for things that we wouldn't know to look for during the house hunting. We didn't get our offer accepted on the first try but Trevor helped us with the purchase of a different unit in the same community! The townhouse wasn't even on the market but he was able to get us under contract with the seller and we closed without having to compete with anyone else. His creative strategy was exactly what we were looking for in this competitive market. We are now in our dream home because of his amazing work. We cannot thank Trevor enough for all the hard work that he has put in for us to make our first home purchase possible. I would highly recommend working with Trevor." - John and Karen

Winning bidding wars

"We highly recommend Trevor Russell! A year ago, my family and I relocated from Arizona to the Pacific Northwest. We were unsure if we would be purchasing a home right away or renting. Right from the start Trevor was AMAZING! He was a great listener, asked questions to make sure we were on the same page, and NEVER pressured us which so many realtors often do. When we first relocated, we rented and were never really 100% sure if we wanted to purchase. Trevor stayed quietly in the background, sending us listings and checking in on us ever so often.

Seven months after relocating, we were finally ready to start actively looking. As soon as we let Trevor know, he popped out of the background and became our advocate. He made it his mission to find us the best home, in the right school district for the right price! Hid individualized attention made my family and I feel as if we were his only clients. He went above and beyond our highest expectations over and over again. He gave us real and honest advice that helped us win a bidding war with very little additional money out of our pocket.

Our entire house buying experience was low stress, simple and personalized with Trevor! Again, we would highly recommend him and have already done so three times!" - Aaron and Dana

Magnolia Bungalow

"Trevor was wonderful to work with. I needed help selling my rental house in Magnolia. He went above and beyond in preparing the house for the market. He arranged the landscaping, roof cleaning, window washing, and staging. He paid for a house inspection, professional photos, professional cleaning, and more... he even helped me build a fence! When we were ready to sell, Trevor hosted 3 open houses and within 5 days we had 2 competing offers. I closed in less than 30 days for above asking price. He is hardworking, professional, and trustworthy." - Jamie

Selling in Ballard, Buying in Burien

"My girlfriend and I met Trevor at the first open house we attended while starting our search for a new house. We immediately enjoyed him and decided to interview him to help with our search. He was so easy to work with we realized during that interview that Trevor would be the real estate agent for us! Trevor helped us both sell my house and buy our gorgeous new home. In the whole buying and selling process Trevor went above and beyond. For our sale, we listed on Thursday, and got out of town for weekend. Trevor had an open house, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, while we relaxed knowing we were in good hands. By Tuesday we had 3 offers in hand, all over asking and were in agreement that night. The selling process was a breeze thanks to Trevor. While we were preparing the house for sale, we were also hitting it hard to find our perfect house. Since we were some picky clients, we worked Trevor hard and viewed upwards of 40 houses(including 11! in one day). He never once balked at our requests and the thing I like most about Trevor is how well he got to know our needs. Trevor always has a smile on his face and if he didn't feel the house was for us, he would let us know. His honesty and work ethic are next to no one and we can't be happier with our purchase. I'm now glad to say that I have a real estate agent for life, but more than that I'm ecstatic that I can say my real estate agent is a friend. I know there are other good agents out there, but Trevor is the best." -David & Katie

One Year Later...

"We are so excited to be in our new home and begin to build family memories that will last a lifetime. We cannot express enough of our gratitude to Trevor and his team. Trevor guided and supported us on our home buying journey for well over a year. We were in a positon where we were ready to buy a home but a lot of work needed to be done. Trevor oversaw everything. He put us in the right direction on how to get our credit where it needed to be, he set us up with a lender who really took personal care for our success, and he was available anytime we needed him. Buying a home can be a very overwhelming experience. However, we never felt that way at all. Trevor made us feel comfortable, he made the process easy and exciting. One thing we knew the entire time is we could trust Trevor and that was the biggest thing for us. He worked with us from the first pre approval to more than a year later on every detail of the offer. The whole time he was there, on top of things, and supportive. The most calming feeling the entire time was, we had someone we really could trust. We not only have a Real Estate Agent for life, we have a great friend." - Johnny & Lisa

Buying in South Seattle

"We met Trevor at an open house we wandered into on a random Saturday. We were out looking for a possible home, but had not yet solidified our commitment to buying a house. Trevor was a warm, welcoming face when we entered the house. We wandered around checking out all the details and when we made our way back to the kitchen we stopped to talk with Trevor to hear more information on the house.
Trevor offered us great information on the house, the neighborhood and the process of starting to look for a home. We loved the mid-century style of the home, but had a feeling the house would sell out of our comfort zone.

We continued our day and saw 2 more houses that peaked our interest. We immediately both thought of calling Trevor to be our agent because of his open-spirit, professionalism and enthusiasm. When we called him later the day we met him, he was immediately on board. He did not hesitate to get things moving for us on the house we were interested in. He researched the specs, the neighborhood, and house. He offered sound advice about positives and negatives of the house. We did not get that house and felt the disappointment, but better things were on the horizon.

Trevor continued to be our trustworthy steward and got us in contact with an excellent lender, slugged around to open houses with us, always happy to check a place out, and kept us up-to-date on the latest to come on the market. This is how we found our amazing home! Trevor had us on his listing service of new homes. There it was, the home we had been looking for! Once again, Trevor was on it! He had the specs, toured the neighborhood and house with us, and got us great inspectors to assess the house and the sewer the next day. Trevor's great attitude and friendly demeanor helped us to establish a genuine connection with the home owners which we believe helped us to close the deal. The house became our home! We are grateful to Trevor for being on our side and helping us to find it.

If you work with Trevor, you will have an excellent resource of information, someone to help you with understanding the ins and outs of home buying and a true professional who cares about his clients and his work.
We were lucky to meet Trevor at that random open house." - Anne & Kelly

First Time Home Buying

We met Trevor this past fall when we decided to buy our first home. He was the selling broker for a house we were interested in. Although we were not successful in our bid on that house, we were extremely impressed with the professionalism and friendliness he showed towards us throughout the process. As a result, we asked him to be our broker as we continued our quest to find the perfect first home.

Trevor met us at houses on nights, weekends, and pretty much whenever we were available. He took us to dozens of houses and proved invaluable when evaluating properties and helping us read the market. You could tell he really wanted us to be happy with our purchase and not have any regrets.

Trevor put in a tremendous amount of extra work to understand what we were looking for, and, in the end, found us the perfect home that we couldn't love more. And, on top of it all, he helped us get it under the list price, while he negotiated the installation of a completely new electrical system prior to close at the seller's expense.

We will undoubtedly recommend Trevor to all of our friends looking to purchase a new home in the future.
-Marc and Charlotte

Selling in West Seattle

"I LOVE working with Trevor. He has been so wonderful in helping us purchase our amazing new home and in selling the old loved one. He is extremely customer driven, in fact, he drove us to so many houses on our search, it's amazing his car still works! He is detail oriented. What I love is that he listened to what we wanted, focused on those wants and needs, and even when the perfect house wasn't on the market, he found it in expired listings and exceeded our expectations and desires. Always cheerful and supportive, even during the stressful times that come with a home purchase. Trevor made our experience one of fun and laughter. I recommend him highly!!!!!" -Denise

Investor

"I have worked with six or seven realtors selling and buying various properties. Some worked out well and some not so well. Trevor was the best for two reasons. We were buying something to fix up and sell. First thing I noticed about Trevor even though we liked a property he would be honest with us if there was not any money to be made. He did not try to collect a commission by selling us a house we could not make a profit on. The second thing I noticed, Trevor would fight for us. He did not hesitate to represent our best interests when dealing with the seller or the bank. I felt very comfortable in Trevor's advice and that he had our best interest in mind." - Fred

From Phoenix to Seattle

"Relocating from Phoenix to the Seattle area, I knew that I wanted to purchase a home rather than rent. It was the wise move to make; but I didn't know anybody that I trusted. I got your name from a friend, asked you to please treat my family as your own and let you know that I was prepared to make an offer sight unseen. When you tried to talk me out of it, I knew for sure that I could trust you. You truly wanted to make sure that I was being methodical and logical, rather than acting on impulse and emotion.
You vetted properties, conducted walk throughs and ultimately stated that you had found our house. It was true. You found the perfect house, in the perfect location for my family. We feel that everyday is a vacation. This house felt like home almost immediately.
Thank you so much for your integrity and intuition." - Trish

Alki Living

"Perseverance, Professional, Creative. That is how I would describe Trevor Russell's efforts in finding us our dream home. For over 6 months, Trevor showed us listings and even called expired listings looking for that perfect home. We did not want to compromise and neither did Trevor. With all of the time that he spent working with us, he is like family now. We are very impressed and very thankful for all of his hard work" - Paul
