Working with Sarah was an awesome experience. It’s truly amazing how she managed to make a crazy time in our lives easy, efficient, and fun.
We found out about her through a financing agent who we had worked with for our first house. When we began inquiring about financing for our second, we were told that Sarah would be the perfect agent for us, both professionally and personally, and that was the absolute truth; we were a perfect match as clients and agent.
Sarah guided my partner and I through two major life hurdles, back-to-back: buying our second home and selling our first. We put an offer on our new home on March 26 and we received an offer for our existing home on May 17. In other words, we spent the better part of 2 months working closely with her in-person as well as via email, text, and phone calls. She made herself available to us at any hour and she excelled at laying things out for us, step by step, so that we were informed, prepared, and confident in our decison making. She offered council, both positive and negative, when needed and was sincere and honest with us the whole time, which was huge for us. My partner and I both prefer the cards face-up and we enjoy real, authentic communication and we received both, in spades, from Sarah.
She is extremely passionate about real estate and she is really, really good at her job, which is impressive enough. But honestly, the thing I liked the most about her is that she routinely made me laugh throughout our time working together and that, alone, made our relationship a success. If you can laugh and smile while buying and selling a house back-to-back, someone is doing something right. And indeed, she was. Thank you Sarah for being an awesome agent and, hopefully, our new friend. – Jeff and Patrick, Buyer and Seller, Spring 2018
I knew from our first meeting, I knew Sarah was the real deal. At our first meetings she asked all the right questions, brought a packet of information and went through it all with me.. it was the best kind of hand-holding for a first time homebuyer like myself. When my husband and I (with our 6 month old baby) met her for our first round of house viewings, we felt so genuinely taken care of. She brought things to our attention about each home thoughtfully and with such a keen and knowledgeable eye that we felt confident each time we pursued a property. The Seattle market is incredibly intimidating, but Sarah worked patiently and aggressively on our behalf. We never felt like we weren’t a top priority, or that our small budget (which it was:) wasn’t important to her. She was accessible any time of day – even writing an offer after 8 on a weekend – and cheerfully and confidently made sure that the condo we ended up purchasing was the absolute choice for our little family. Buying a house can be stressful. Sarah made it exciting and fun. She empowered our decisions, remained kind and positive throughout, and rode in the backseat to entertain our tiny baby during many a weekend house viewing. She’s a pro and a gem of a realtor. Thank you Sarah! Katie and Ryan, Buyers 5/2018
Sarah was an absolute dream to work with. From our first meeting she took us by the hand and walked us through the entire process. She even helped us find financing for or new house. Sarah was available to me anytime day or night. She made the entire process run smoothly from start to finish, our house sold in one day thanks to Sarah, she helped us save money on staging and several other areas as we worked to present our house in the best light possible. We couldn’t have done it without her and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell their house. Cam and Rick, Sellers 5/2018
Sarah helped my wife an I buy our first home. Sarah did a great job helping my wife and I figure out what we were really looking for in a house, as well as understand the Seattle housing market. This included understanding how the market was different in the different areas we were considering houses. In addition, she was incredibly responsive to our communication. Greg and Melissa, Buyers 2/2018
Not only is Sarah wonderful to do business with, she’s totally rad on a personal level. We went into the buying process not really knowing how it would work, where we would end up, and what would ultimately happen. Sarah was there every step of the way to give us ideas, help us plan, and do so with a perfect balance of knowledge, sensibility, and realism. She was available to answer our questions anytime, via text, email and phone, and believe me – we had a lot of questions. At no point did I ever feel like I was taking up too much of her time, and she was wonderful at communication. I would highly recommend Sarah and her team, and we are so glad she was recommended to us! Thank you Sarah! – Aivi and Kelly, Buyer 3/2018
Working with Sarah was nothing less than amazing. She is so sharp, knows the area like the back of her hand, and works so hard for her clients. She lead us through the home buying process with poise and determination, helped us craft a super competitive offer while making us feel at ease and confident about the whole process. In fact the first offer we submitted was accepted – and now we are home! I would recommend her to ANYONE looking for a home. – Jenny and Chris, Buyers 2/2018
Good friends of ours introduced us to Sarah after she won them their house in West Seattle. I say won because it was an impressive display of savvy and commitment and she played the game just right! We first met Sarah at her West Seattle office on a rainy weekend evening. She was totally comfortable with letting our curious and quick toddler explore the space. She was easy-going, attentive, and goal-oriented. Her attitude in getting to know her clients’ needs and wants shined through and set the stage for what we felt would be nothing short of a positive relationship going forward.
To qualify for a home loan as low income earning, first time home buyers in the Seattle surrounding area, we had to get very creative. Sarah was patient and friendly during the wait times and as fast as could be during the go times. She kept the cool attitude we came to know from our first meeting throughout the process. Sarah is enthusiastic about showing houses. She’s available by phone, text, or email. In those times where her partner must take over, she stays in the loop. Sarah has recommendations for all the skilled help needed when buying a house too. For example, we worked with her recommended inspector and it was a great experience. The sale process of our particular sale was not pretty, but Sarah handled it like a graceful champion.
I didn’t even know how bad it was until after the fact – and I still might not know all of it. Sarah sheltered us during that storm. Our favorite moment with Sarah was when she practically skipped out of what came to be our house with sparkling eyes and said, “I really like this one for you guys.” We would not hesitate to work with Sarah again and she’s the first person I recommend when someone mentions needing real estate help. Ebba and Keer, Buyers 11/2017
Sarah and Shelley went above and beyond. They found a way to dispose of clothing and furniture from the house and mailed me back an item from across the country that was left behind. I am completely satisfied with their knowledge and effectiveness in explaining the transaction. Thank you! Annette, Seller 11/2017
We just moved from across the country to Seattle and were well-versed on the real-estate market horror stories. Sarah helped align our expectations and with her guidance we ended up closing on a condo in less than four weeks from when we first started searching. With Sarah as your agent, buyers in Seattle can be winners too! Kathleen and Brandon, Buyers 11/2017
Sarah was a great advocate during the process of buying my first home. Seattle can be a tough market for first time homebuyers and Sarah helped me navigate the murky waters. She’s incredibly responsive and committed. Turns out home buying CAN be easy (as long as you’ve got Sarah on your team!). Chelan, Buyer, 9/2017
Shelley was a superb agent. She knew the neighborhood, she knows the business inside out. She’s easy to work with, and willing to get the extra mile to help the process to its successful conclusion. She’s very personable, and you feel at ease with her right away. I’d recommend her to anyone. Unconditionally. – The Siscos Family, Seller 10/2017
Sarah is a phenomenal real estate agent! We were very impressed with her efficiency and knowledge of the crazy Seattle market. She heard our needs and made smart moves! When you list your house you need to be able to rely on your agent and trust their judgement. With Sarah you can do just that! We received well over asking and were very pleased with the sale of our home. -Bernt and Alexa, Sellers, 10/2017
I have bought and sold 3 homes in SW Seattle with Shelley. All experiences were good. She is an excellent agent. She has strong local knowledge of properties. Knows many other agents which allows good triangulation of information. Is very responsive, proactive, thorough, patient and fair. And is an outstanding partner when buying and selling. Thank you! -Tony, Seller and Buyer, 10/2017
Sarah was such a thorough, personal, and creative agent for us. She took care of organizing all aspects of our sale from staging and photography to taking photos of the meters to close out our utilities. She explained every step of the process before we started and all along the way. I was so impressed and relaxed through the whole process because I knew she had it all handled. I highly recommend her and am already using her services for our next purchase. – Ainslie and Dana, Seller 10/2017
Shelley lives in and understands the local market and really worked with us to understand our needs and desires. She thoroughly understands the home selling and buying processes and was extremely helpful in supporting us through both. We appreciated her professional perspective and really appreciated her ability to listen to our feedback and support our decisions regardless of any additional work they may have created. – Justin and Lucy, Sellers 9/2017
Sarah was amazing! There were soooo many hurdles with my contingent offer for my new home. Sarah was on top of her game, she put me at ease in the face of stressful situations. I feel that Sarah went above and beyond what most agents would do. With my sell/purchase, Sarah was the lead. Shelley also had a very strong role in my purchase as well.
Shelley showed me the home that I bought, and she got the ball rolling with me putting an offer on my new home. Sarah and Shelley are a great team, and their contacts from a mortgage person, painter, and landscape guy were also impressive. Windermere you should feel lucky to have Sarah and Shelley on your team! Shelley showed me a home I was interested in, but I didn’t think I had a chance of getting. I didn’t think I could get the house because my home wasn’t quite ready to go on the market. After a minute or two of the showing I told Shelley that I would put in an offer on this house today. When I said that, it was more of a pipe dream, but to my astonishment Shelley said okay we can make that happen. And so that was the moment when I thought I could actually purchase this home.
Sarah was great at communicating with me all throughout the process: she called, texted, e-mailed pretty 24-7 to update me about the process of the sale/purchase. I texted her a few times late in the evening with questions and she responded quickly. Sarah took care of a backyard situation that was bad, she told her landscape guy to take care of it. Sarah suggested that I edit out a few furniture items from my home and she had my home staged. When that was done my home looked amazing and move in ready. When I wasn’t quick to respond to my mortgage lender or other point of contact, Sarah would contact me to get me back on track. The day of closing I told Sarah that I had accidently peeled off some paint in the kitchen the previous night when removing the kitchen TV cable … and two hours later she had her paint guy at my house fixing the problem. I don’t think I would have gotten my new home with another agent. I feel like Sarah had to go above and beyond with my contingent offer. I am now in my forever home thanks to Sarah and Shelley. – Matt, Buyer and Seller 9/2017
I was very satisfied with Sarah as my Real Estate Agent. I would absolutely use her again and I found her to be prompt and responsive. She provided a clear direction on a path to move forward with my condo purchase. – Randall, Buyer 7/2017
Despite the stressful Seattle market and the short time frame we had to work with as buyers, Shelley dedicated so much time to helping us and guided us through everything. She makes you feel comfortable but is also very honest. She’s very prompt and flexible with scheduling. The whole process was far less stressful than I had anticipated, basically a dream! When I tell my friends how my home-buying process was, they are jealous of how well we were taken care of. -Brody, Buyer 10/2017
Sarah just sold our home – and I cannot stop gushing over how amazing she was from start to finish!!! Our old home had some not-so-pleasant surprises in store as we navigated to prep and sell on a super tight schedule — and Sarah handled every bump and problem with grace and enthusiasm. She turned every problem into a solution — when we were teetering on exhaustion and delirium. She also has a wonderful team working with her to handle every single home issue you could think of. Hiring Sarah is like hitting the dream-team jackpot. She loves her job — loves her clients — and it shows! Sarah, thank you SO MUCH for constantly going above and beyond and making this experience as easy as moving/transitioning can possibly be! – Heather, Seller 7/2017
Sarah really understood how to show our house in its best light, and worked hard to get the best possible price for us. She was also a true pro in managing all the little issues that came up while preparing the house, while we were thousands of miles away. She knows her stuff and how to put that knowledge into action. Don’t sell your home in Seattle without talking to her! – Jason, Seller 6/2017
Shelley’s awesome! Her understanding of the market, and of the unique merits of our particular home, were invaluable. She worked hard putting that knowledge into action, with the result that our home sold fast for way over asking price. Shelley was also fantastic at handling inspections, repairs, and closing while we were far away. Don’t sell your home without talking to Shelley! -Nicole, Seller 5/2017
Shelley was fabulous start to finish in the home buying process! She is extremely knowledgeable and is very responsive. As buyers moving from out of state, once we gave her our area & specifications she was able to help us find the perfect house. The Seattle market is super competitive but she was able to work with her knowledge and experience to get us where we wanted to be! We would highly recommend Shelley to all Seattle buyers/ sellers. -Nate and Jackie, Buyers, 5/2017
Sarah has been an amazing agent! We were first time home buyers and the whole thing scared us at first. Until we met Sarah, and she made the whole process not only a breeze, but fun too! She was personable and great at listening to our needs and even found us a majority of our wants! I would highly recommend Sarah to other home buyers. -Kena and Aaron, Buyers, 2/2017
Shelley is a special realtor. She not only has exceptional knowledge to assist buyers and sellers, but also the gift of listening and working through the process to ensure that you will receive exceptional service. Having bought and sold our personal homes, she has been the best realtor we have ever had. -G.E., Buyer and Seller, 1/2017
Selling a house can be a stressful process. There are several steps involved, and Shelley was able to walk us through the preparation, organization, and sale of our house with ease. She made a complicated process seem easy. We would absolutely work with her, again, and we would recommend her to our friends and family. -E.K., Seller, 2/2017
Our experience working with Shelley Godwin was absolutely wonderful. She is the epitome of professionalism. She had a listing in our neighborhood of Si View, in North Bend, several months before we decided to list our house. I chatted with her and walked away thinking that when the time came to list our house, my husband and I would definitely consider working with Shelley. We also liked that Shelley was affiliated with Windermere Real Estate. We had worked with Windermere previously and their long time local presence and excellent reputation also factored into our decision. In August 2016, the time came and we chose Shelley to work with us on selling our home. Her real estate knowledge of our neighborhood was excellent. Her calm and friendly demeanor put us at ease. She was always prompt, whether in responding to our questions or requests, when meeting with us, or when setting up for open houses. When it came time for negotiations and working through that process, Shelley kept us informed every step of the way. Our neighbors were also impressed with Shelley. One of our neighbors also chose to work with her. It is without hesitation that we would recommend Shelley Godwin and we would also choose to work with her again in the future. -T.C., Seller, 1/2017
We could not have closed our transactions without Shelley. She was very professional in a whirlwind of craziness, keeping calm, confident and on course. We love our new home, and a mountain of gratitude to Shelley for pulling it all together. -J.P., Buyer, 1/2017
Sarah is amazing! As first time home buyers we had no idea what we really wanted or how to get it. Enter Sarah who helped us determine what our priorities for our future home really were, educated us on the home buying process and then helped us find and buy our perfect first home. She helped us put together a strong offer, worked with all the parties to keep everything moving forward and made sure we felt comfortable every step of the way leading to a smooth and quick closing. If you are looking for an agent who will be consistently responsive, knowledgeable, and a joy to work with we highly recommend Sarah! -Megan and Andy, Buyers, 1/2017 Video: Opening the door for the for the first time!
Shelley has provided me with excellent service! I have purchased 2 and sold property with her. She understands right away my needs and is very responsive. She’s now my GO TO agent for buying and selling any property. -R.C., Buyer and Seller, 12/2016
Sarah is the best. She’s super responsive and flexible. She knew exactly how to position me best to buy the perfect home given the market, location and circumstances of the purchase. She was an expert negotiator and moved at the speed of light. I know it took patience (I’m a first time homebuyer) for Sarah to explain things to me. But she patiently broke all the complicated details into bite-sized nuggets, made sure I knew what I was signing off on and what my options were–plus the pros and cons of each choice. She was seriously thoughtful & knowledgeable, seriously forthright and seriously wonderful! I felt reassured that she was and is in my corner. -Katie and Dylan, Buyer, 12/2016
Shelley Godwin was impressively punctual, professional, and caring to work with for buying and selling our homes. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a real estate agent. She is a very hard working person of the highest moral integrity; she radiates goodness with a big smile and has done a remarkable job looking out for our best interest during the critical period of contractual counter-offers, contingencies, and inspection repairs. I am so pleased with Shelley’s service that I would highly recommend her to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling a home. -A.K., Buyer and Seller, 12/2016
Sarah was wonderful throughout the whole process of selling our house. We are military and our plans changed several times and she was always helpful and patient with us. This was our first time selling a house and she took time to explain everything to us and made the whole process painless. I will recommend her to anyone and everyone, she made selling our house so quick and easy. -Allison and Luis, Sellers, 10/2016
My husband and I met Sarah by chance at an open house and we are so happy that we did. Sarah helped to clear up our expectations of home-buying in a seller’s market and stayed patient with how picky we were about the homes we were looking at. In the end Sarah helped us to find our amazing first home and we couldn’t be happier. -Kasi and Jason, Buyers, 9/2016
For the first time in my life, I am a home owner, and Sarah Georger-Clark was my realtor. She was recommended to me by a good friend who recently bought a home with her assistance. WOW – am I glad my friend recommended her! Sarah is truly everything you could possibly want in a realtor. She is professional, friendly, personable, humble and knowledgeable. She made herself available when we needed her to be. She was patient and flexible. She listened — and had such amazing instincts — to help guide us to our dream home. She connected us with a fabulous home inspector and mortgage lender. She made sure every detail was taken care of, with truly excellent communication along the way. There is absolutely nothing that could have made our experience better. We feel blessed that we really did find the perfect home for us, and that we had Sarah behind us to make it all possible. -Sherri and Dike, Buyer, 9/2016
We completely enjoyed working with Sarah. We were first-time home buyers and couldn’t have asked for a better person to guide us through the process. She is always available, incredibly responsive and flexible. She gives honest opinions about houses and was reassuring and knowledgeable in a tough market with plenty of bidding wars. Thanks Sarah! -Laura and Jordan, Buyer, 8/2016
I had the best experience ever working with Sarah! She was extremely accommodating and always available for questions. She helped me land my first home on my first offer ever. Her expertise with the Seattle market is extensive which makes it super easy for her to help you navigate the in and outs! I cannot recommend her highly enough! -Audrey, Buyer, 8/2016
Sarah and I worked together on and off for the past year, and I can’t say enough good things about her. She is knowledgeable about the market, she was always available at a moment’s notice to see a house, and when it came time to buy my house she pulled out every stop and made sure I had the best offer on the table. I got the house…and a ton of credit goes to Sarah and her savvy! I will call Sarah every time I have a question or housing need in the future. Sarah was absolutely amazing. As a first time home buyer I had a lot of questions but she was always very thorough and understanding. She is kind, knowledgeable and hard working. I would DEFINITELY recommend her! -Jaime, Buyer, 7/2016
Where to begin? After 6 months with another realtor we decided to change gears. Sarah was responsive, knowledgable, well known by listing agents we saw when looking at houses (and liked! Yes, this is important), flexible and most of all just gave us a general sense that everything was under control. Within weeks we had our offer accepted on a house that made us very thankful some of our previous offers were not accepted. We closed in 30 days. Sarah met us at the house to give us the keys and already had a gift/welcome basket in the kitchen with a promise she’ll swing by in a couple weeks to check on us… I believe her. Seattle is a crazy, crazy market right now and may be for some time to come. Make sure you hire the right person to steer you through it. -Jordana and Mark, Buyer, 7/16
Sarah was a joy to have as a realtor. She was very patient had extensive knowledge of the local areas and most of all was always there when you needed her. She showed me homes that were less desirable (such as a hoarder’s house) and gave me an honest opinion about how much work it would be to fix up. In the end I found a good house at a great price that was a short sale from the bank. This process was very slow and she guided me though each step. The bank gave us only 20 days to close and she was able to pull together all the required people and applications in that time and close the house. I highly recommend Sarah realtor and we’ll be using her in the future. -James, Buyer, 6/16
I can’t even begin to describe how great it was to work with Sarah! She’s more than just an amazing realtor – she approaches your quest with the warmth and kindness of a friend you’ve known for years! My husband and I were both new to Seattle and searching for our first home – a task filled with myriad questions and unfamiliarity on our part.
Sarah was patient, thorough, and detailed in explaining neighborhoods, house styles, schools – and was quick to reply to our every inquiry, no matter the time of day. She knows the West Seattle area in incredible detail. I adored her initial “what do you love/what’s most important” activity. It helped us start to narrow down what we liked and prioritize — a daunting task for your first home! Once we found a house we liked, Sarah drafted our offer quickly and we met an incredibly tight (Mother’s Day!) deadline. We were outbid, but Sarah was quick to reassure us of the nuances of the crazy Seattle market and that we’d have other opportunities. On our 3rd house/offer, we hit the jackpot on timing with a competitive offer and snagged our new home!
Sarah stayed in close contact with the Seller’s agent, our lenders (a phenomenal team — one of Sarah’s referrals!), and escrow, making sure that everything was on track and running smoothly. We even ended up closing a week early! We absolutely lucked out in finding Sarah and can’t imagine this process without her. We’re so grateful to have her as our realtor and a friend. -Julia and Shane, Buyer, 5/16
Sarah was great in helping us find our home and being flexible to find time to show up homes that we were interested in. Working with her was easy and fun. -Crystal and Obi, Buyer, 5/16
Shelley Godwin helped me with the listing process of one of our investment properties. She knew how to showcase the property , help pick out interior colors, carpet, tile, etc. Shelley was also very knowledgeable about the neighborhood and market. Shelley helped us navigate through multiple offers, and pick the offer that was best suited for myself and my investors. I would use Shelley again in a heartbeat. -M.G., Seller, 3/2016
Sarah is a fantastic agent! Very knowledgeable about the market in West Seattle and well connected. She has a great team and was incredibly responsive. She also knows all the little things to do to make the experience as easy and pain free as possible. We can’t say enough good things about her – we’re so happy to have had her on our side. -Eli, Buyer, 5/16
I just met with the Seller and she is the nicest person ever! She was so helpful and funny! I thanked her for choosing me and she got teary eyed talking about the house. She said she loved my letter, that I remind her of herself 8 years ago moving into the home and she said she liked the Realtor–she said you had the best presentation for the offer-organized with all your ducks in a row! Thank you!!! -Megan, Buyer, 4/16
If you are planning to wade into the crazy, frenzied West Seattle real estate market, we highly suggest partering up with Sarah Georger-Clark! We had an amazing experience and, thanks to her, we own our first Seattle home! I’ve heard horror stories about how insane the market is and we were dreading the process but working with Sarah was a pleasure. Sarah is an AWESOME real estate agent. -Sarah W., Buyer, 4/16
Sarah did a wonderful job as our real estate agent. She was always very prepared with helpful information and useful, up to date market facts and figures. She helped us stage our home in a stylish way that fit with our personal tastes. We especially liked how she was always very quick to answer our questions as they came up. We would highly recommend her. – Bethanie and Corey, Seller, 3/16
Sarah is a marvelous real estate agent. She strives to help clients accomplish their goals by providing in-depth market research, shrewd negotiating skills, and drawing from an endless supply passion for the industry. She is aggressive, yet thoughtful, detail oriented and driven, all while displaying an affable disposition. You can tell she loves her job, but more importantly, really loves helping her clients succeed. -Jason Allan, Seller, 2/16
I cannot say enough positive things about Sarah! We first met Sarah at an open house she was running for a friend of hers. At that time, my girlfriend and I were just out looking at homes for fun. We had a condo at the time, and while we wanted to sell it and buy a new home, we weren’t really sure if the market was right. Flash forward to a month later, and we’d sold our condo and were moving into our new home!
Sarah was fantastic throughout the whole process! This was my second home purchase, and my first home sale. As this was my first home sale, and my girlfriend’s first foray into real estate; we had a lot of questions for her. Sarah was always there with answers no matter how simple or complex the question was. She made us feel so comfortable the entire way. We never once felt pressured, or feel like customers; it felt like we were her friends.
Sarah is such a hard worker too! She was always in constant contact. Some days I’d hear from her at 7 in the morning and again at 10 at night. Not only does she do a great job at keeping in touch, she’s also very prepared and well organized. When it came time to list our home, she sat down with us and came up with a list of things to do, and set the order in which they’d be completed. She took care of everything she could on her own, and the things that required us to do; she had lists of people to contact to help us with exactly what we needed to do.
Sarah did such an outstanding job at getting our home ready for sale. She helped us find some amazing housecleaners, a great photographer, and had our home staged perfectly. It was so good, that we listed the home at 8AM on a Thursday morning, and had is sold by 7PM that evening for well over asking! This came as such a relief to us, as she’d helped us to get the seller of our new home to take an offer contingent to the sale of our condo within two weeks of the time we made the offer. We didn’t have much time, but we didn’t need much time thanks to Sarah.
As I said when I started this review; I simply cannot say enough positive things about Sarah. If you have an opportunity to work with her; do it! She will work at whatever pace you need, and will make sure you don’t have to worry about a thing. I’ve already recommended her to all of my friends, and some day when we decide it’s time to move again, I will be calling Sarah. – Kyle and Kiernan, Buyer and Seller, 7/15
I highly recommend Sarah as an agent! She is knowledgeable, professional, loyal, and successful. She is willing to go the extra mile to make sure your transaction is smooth and painless, and that you get the results you want, and more! Because of Sarah, the sale of our house was quick and profitable. She gives great advice and unyielding support. I’ll definitely use her again on my next real estate transaction. – Adrienne and Bill, Seller, 9/15
We loved working with Shelley to purchase our first house. She was honest, careful, communicative, responsive, and respectful. We were on a tight time frame and she helped us move quickly and carefully through the process. I viewed the house with Shelley on a Wednesday, she drew up the paperwork that night and we showed it to my husband the next day and signed our offer then. She worked well with our broker and also helped us navigate appropriate inspections. During the showing process she was honest in her assessment of various houses we looked at and was also incredibly flexible as I toted around a sick baby. We ended up a bit outside of her regular area and she worked hard to find us information on the area. She was fabulous. -E.E., Buyer, 4/2015
Shelley is fantastic! I worked with her on both the sale of my old home and the purchase of my current home and I would recommend her in a heartbeat. She kept me informed at every step of the process, giving excellent advice and offering creative solutions to move things forward. She has the highest level of professionalism and her friendly, positive, can-do attitude made her a pleasure to work with! -M.M., Seller & Buyer, 6/2014 and 10/2015
Shelley Godwin assisted and represented me with the sale of my home. Her skills and expertise are quite diverse. She has been one of the most creative and dedicated individuals I have ever known. Her intuitive process help negotiate the terms of the sale to meet my individual weakness in a win-win for both the seller and the buyer. Shelley should be considered a valuable cornerstone to the purchase or sale of your home. -Seller, 6/15
While on vacation in Seattle, WA I received an offer on my home in San Diego, CA. I contacted Sarah Georger-Clark of The Zack & Jodi Hill Team with Keller-Williams for assistance with printing out my paperwork and getting the offer back to my agent in San Diego. Sarah came into her office on Easter Sunday, she made me feel comfortable and welcome as she quickly read over my paperwork, assisted me in signing and emailing it back to my agent. Sarah is a dedicated Real Estate professional and I would encourage anyone in Seattle to trust her to help them buy or sell a home. -Amber and Eric, Seller, 3/15
I found Sarah through a local Facebook group. My family had an interesting list of needs to meet, but she assured me she could do it, and she did!!!
Our first meeting, she came to our home, met our children, and even held and burped our baby! She was like a dear family friend that we’d known for years. She asked us in detail what we were looking for, what was most important, what we expected of her as our agent, etc. She was so easy to talk to and I felt like she was perfect to help our family!
We only had to look at 3 homes before we submitted an offer. My favorite question she would ask after looking at a home was “What did you think, on a scale of 1-10?” Once we found our “10”, she got right to work drafting an offer. It was a unique situation, and our first offer was rejected. But for our second offer, she suggested adding an escalation clause (which I had never heard of before) and it ultimately won the bidding war and the house for us- for almost $20K less than our first offer!!
Sarah stayed in constant contact over the next few weeks, meeting me for the inspection (and feeding my baby while I walked through the home with the inspector!), getting answers from the seller’s agent, keeping in contact with our lender and escrow to keep us up to date on the progress of the approval process, everything!!
Sarah is nothing short of amazing. I have not one single complaint and wish that I needed to buy/sell more homes just to hang out with her more! I will highly recommend her every opportunity I get! Thank you so much for everything, Sarah!! – Nicole and Clint, Buyer, 9/15
Sarah is an absolute gem. I was connected to her by clicking on “more information” on a house listed on Zillow. I had never met her before, and since most people choose Real Estate Agents based on friends or family, I wasn’t expecting to work with someone I had never met. Sarah made my first-time home buying experience absolutely amazing. From my initial stage of online research, all the way through closing and moving into my new home, Sarah was right by my side making sure everything moved quickly and seamlessly. What I liked the most about working with Sarah was that she never seemed annoyed with any of my questions or concerns, or that maybe a house didn’t feel right for me. Never once did I feel pressured to make a decision to fit a certain timeline. She went above and beyond to help negotiate walk throughs and initiate conversations with the previous owners of my home. She even gave me GREAT referrals to lenders and other resources that I had no idea even existed. I will definitely be using Sarah in the future and highly recommend her to anyone who is new and unfamiliar with the buying process! – Leanne and Omandi, Buyer, 7/15
We met Sarah Georger-Clark, of the Zack and Jodi Hill Team, at an open house in our neighborhood. After speaking with her and seeing her knowledge of the neighborhood we wanted to live in we decided to go with her for our home search. We found a house that met all of our wish list, to our amazement, by looking at the listings she regularly had sent according to our preferences. We expected to have to compromise on some things. Sarah recommended a number of banks and we ended up using one of her recommendations. She showed us the home and others as many times as we asked, worked with the sellers and the bank and us through the offer negotiations, appraisal, underwriting requests, etc. She was very responsive and accommodating and was good moral support as we went through today’s very rigorous loan approval processes. It was a nice touch that she found old pictures of the home for us. We would have wished to have her at the signing, but since this wasn’t my first home purchase that wasn’t an issue. If the rest of the team is as good, we would highly recommend this realtor. -Brian and Ba, Buyer, 8/2015
Shelley is a trusted friend, and when we decided it was time to look for a new home, Shelley was hands-down our first choice to help us navigate the market. Shelley showed us multiple houses and guided us through the various steps of the process: inspections, making an offer, escrow, and more–and we are now happy to own our own place! Thank you Shelley! -B.L., Buyer, 3/2015
Shelley is a fantastic agent! She has helped purchase 2 investment properties. She understands the market and was able to negotiate the best possible price for both. Shelley was able to help us hire subs to help with electrical, plumbing, painting, etc. We have been very happy with Shelley and would gladly use her again. -P.A., Buyer, 10/2014
Shelley Godwin had a difficult task in helping us purchase our home because it was banked owned and had some stipulations associated with the purchase. She was very assertive with the bank representative and convinced him that we were the best buyers for the home. She also tracked down required paperwork and hand-delivered documents when time was of the essence. Without her, we could not have made the purchase. Moreover, she provided us with great recommendations for a plumber and electrician to help make the house move-in ready. -C.M., Buyer, 6/2014
Shelley worked tirelessly scouring Seattle neighborhoods looking for the right home for us. We were out of state buyers and she listened to our wants and needs. She was able to find us the perfect house and negotiate the deal with us never seeing the home until inspection. I have referred her to my son in hopes he purchases a condo. -M.M., Buyer, 4/2014
Shelley Godwin is an excellent agent. My wife and I worked with her for over a year to find the perfect home for our retirement. Shelley really listed, had patience, and was very knowledgeable about the Seattle market. In fact, she called me and told me to meet her at a home in West Seattle, and not to forget to bring my checkbook. The house was perfect! We purchased the home, and are very very happy with our choice of home and Realtor. We have referred her to our friends and would use her again should we decide to buy or sell. -G.E., Buyer, 1/2013
As a client of Shelley’s, I appreciated how she listened to me. She was able to hone in on my priorities and not waste my time. She was respectful, efficient and knew the market very well. I would definitely use her services again and would recommend her to my friends and family. -A.E., Buyer, 1/2013
