Shelley Jones & Carries Hammond

These two went over and beyond to help us sell our place in a very quick timeline. They provided us assurance and confidence as well as grounded us in reality. Their guidance, great communication, and positive approach eased our fears and set us up for success! I would recommend them in a heart beat!”

  I LOVE my new home!  It is exactly what I had in mind. I am very happy here. You provided me with excellent service – you made everything easy. I thank you so very much for that. I always felt you had my best interests in mind. I would recommend you in a heartbeat to anyone I know wanting to buy/sell. It was such a pleasure working with you!


Mark Ellis
Mark Ellis was my agent , to sell a Rental Duplex that I had owned for 45 years. When I was mentally ready to put it on the Market, I was discouraged with the Covid scare looming in every one’s mind. Although I had received Market Analysis from three other Agents , Mark was the final  one to give me a Market Analysis. They were all in the same range. He, in a matter of fact way said,  if I put it on the market in early March, he has confidence that there will be a few prospective buyers in two days, because the Market is short on Inventory. None of the others had such confidence. I thought to myself  “What do I have to lose ?” I signed with him on March 4th. Within 24 hours he brought an offer, full price, cash, no inspection required!

I was mentally prepared for the process to drag on, I was blown away at what he accomplished!  But within 48 hours the prospective buyers with drew the offer. As he broke the news to me he reassured me, that he has another buyer in the wings who would offer more than asking price, but would require inspection. That buyer bought it. It was the seller’s dream deal. Mark’s professional, savvy, honesty, and personable nature made the sale possible without a hitch.

Maybe it was just chance, that it was an uncomplicated sale! In the month of closing that ensued, I got to observe Mark at work , dealing with my long-time tenants to open their apartments for Virtual Video showing. Mark is gregarious, polite, patient, respectful, honest in all his interactions with his clients, reluctant tenants, escrow officers etc.  I will definitely choose him as an agent for future Real Estate transactions. I will recommend him, without reserve to any one who wants an honest, hard working, result- oriented Realtor/ Broker.  All the folks I dealt with at Northwest Home Team Realty are top notch, professional and personal.

Joe Simmons
SO THANKFUL FOR JOE SIMMONS! We’ve never bought a home before, and we were in Hawaii moving back to the PNW. He FaceTimed walk through of houses with us and really answered all our questions at all times a day. I’m glad he got to help us buy our first home to raise our two little ones in and give them a place to always call home.
-Alissa M.

Eric Prehm
Eric has a great, positive attitude, is very responsive and is easy to work with. Hindsight is 20/20, of course, but our beach home might have sold faster if we had used Eric’s estimate for the initial asking price and also if he had helped us earlier than he did to improve the view. Which he did.

Jordan Trapp
I recently purchased a home in the Tumwater area and I had the pleasure of working with Jordan Trapp in finding the home.  I had been interested in moving to the Olympia area from Seattle and had chosen The Northwest Home team as a source.  I filled out the form as to what I was looking for and what I expected to spend.  Jordan sent me many, many listings before I decided I wanted to start checking homes out.  At no time did he pressure me.  I would occasionally get an email from him asking if I had seen any properties that piqued my interest and he left it at that.  When I decided I would start looking at possible homes, I contacted Jordan and we set up a time to meet and I gave him a list of the houses I was interested in.  When I got to Olympia, Jordan was waiting for me with a packet of information and the listings for the homes I wanted to see.  We headed out to the first home and I immediately knew that I had the right agent.  Jordan was very knowledgeable about the Olympia area and was able to answer any questions I had.  When we would look at a house, Jordan again never pressured me.  He let me walk through the houses and ask any questions I might have about the house.  He would point out if there was something about the house that might need attending to, such as the need for a new roof, upgrades, etc.  He would explain different heating systems, windows, etc. and their advantages and disadvantages.  Each time I came down to look at new homes, Jordan was waiting for me and we would immediately head out.  He told me that I would know the right house when I saw it.  I looked at quite a few houses before I finally found one that I decided I wanted.  Once that happened Jordan went through the process of getting me set up.  He found me a lender to finance the house, he found me a very qualified inspector who inspected the house, and after the inspection he dealt with the selling agent to get any discrepancies fixed.  He would go with me whenever we met with anyone that had anything to do with the purchase, to make sure I had backup if needed.  I could not have asked for a better person to work with.  He was very professional but also had a great personality that made it easy for me to ask questions and feel at ease when looking at homes.  I highly recommend Jordan if you are looking for a new home!

Jesse Kellems
Jesse goes above and beyond. He is absolutely amazing and gets the jobs done. He helped us with a very fast closing and was always in touch with us along the way. Could not ask for a better realtor.
-Megan F.

Mark Ellis
I am very pleased with what Mark Ellis at NW Home Team accomplished for me. He brought a buyer, in two days, paying full cash price who waved the inspection! Needless to say that I am sold on NW Home Team. You can be sure that I will recommend Mark Ellis and NW Home Team Realty to my friends and family for their real estate needs.

Jessica Poulos
“Throughout our purchase, Jessica was the consummate professional. She was timely in her responses to our questions, thoughtfully keeping us updated in every step of the process. Jessica instilled a confidence that we would get this done, especially when we were unsure. She is truly a calming presence. Our particular purchase required subtle negotiations that could have easily fallen apart…Jessica represented us amazingly well and delivered! If you’re looking for a confident and knowledgeable agent, we highly recommend Jessica!”

Matt Brady
 “Our home search experience with Matt was informative, diverse, exciting, hopeful, disappointing, challenging, successful and very fulfilling. Matt is knowledgeable, well connected and sincere in his commitment to finding the right fit for his clients. His experience, both professionally and personally, make the sometimes grueling process an adventure. Availability on short notice was especially impressive. Communication, follow up and technical assistance are qualities that Matt is well versed in. We have high regards for Matt and the Northwest Home Realty Team. “
Michael and Louise

Jesse Kellems
 “We worked with Jesse to sell our house, and the experience was stress-free and smooth – exactly what you want this process to be. Jesse is a consummate professional who stays in touch with you throughout the whole entire process, even for little things, which builds a tremendous amount of trust. Thank you so much, Jesse, you are amazing!”
Judy M.

Matt Brady
 “My wife and I would love to recognize Matt Brady and the Northwest Home Team for such a wonderful experience purchasing our home in Olympia. We were initially referred to another agent within the team but due to some scheduling conflicts that agent was unavailable during our visit, so Matt stepped in to help. We couldn’t have been more blessed! He is professional, knowledgeable and very personable. We looked at over 20 houses in just one day, but by the end we felt like Matt was part of our family and vested in finding something that met our needs and wants. He provided us a true sense of security as he continued to represent our interests long after we had to return back to Georgia. As a military family that has to coordinate from so far away this is such and assuring quality. He doesn’t approach his role as a job, he has a genuine care for helping people find a home. We are happy to have met Matt and look forward to referring anyone we can to him and his team.”
Greg W.

Michelle Lukin
“I could not recommend Michelle and Northwest Home Team Realty any higher. My wife and I had a wonderful experience working with her, and can say with confidence that you will be well served and wholly satisfied if you choose to work with Michelle. In complete honesty, we felt like we were working with a close friend. Michelle took the time to get to know us and our family, fully understood our tastes and preferences, and was honest about her thoughts on how various homes hit or missed the target. Our search for a home took much longer than we had hoped or anticipated, and Michelle persisted with race and confidence, even going out of her way to lend support when we had to move into a temporary rental in the middle of our home hunt. We do not make this review lightly, rather we stand firmly behind it and have even referred my parents to work with Michelle as they look to relocate into our area. Work with Michelle.  You will not be disappointed, and it will be both fruitful and fun!”

Jessica Poulos
 “Jessica was always super friendly and upbeat. She kept trying new strategies when the property didn’t sell right away. She answered texts and emails almost immediately and kept in close contact with us.”

Without reservation, we would highly recommend her as your realtor.”

Thomas Schwall

“I worked with the agent Thomas Schwall for several months while we looked for a building lot for our new home. Thomas was patient with me and helped guide me through the process. Cosser & Associates set me up so that I could view properties on line as soon as they were available. We put an offer on one property that did not work out because the seller was not ready and Thomas gave me good advice so that we would not be caught up in it and exited the sale with no drama. When we did fine the right property he gave me good advise for the offers, we went back and forth a couple of times and got the lot at a great price!”
– Rod Zimmerman

Terry Wentworth
“I was put into contact with Terry Wentworth by my Issaquah selling agent and I’m so thankful for it! I wasn’t intimately familiar with the area or neighborhoods and valued Terry’s knowledge and input. Terry and I only met in person twice – for the tour and inspection – but she felt like a fast friend. And, when the sale of our Issaquah house moved up by a full week, Terry worked hard to move up the date on my Centralia home for a simultaneous close. I appreciated her thoughtfulness, experience, and work ethic. I’d highly recommend Terry and Team for your home sale or purchase!”
– Catina Piliaris

“We had traveled from Hawaii on numerous occasions to try to find a home in Washington. We had made arrangements with Seth to show us some homes. Seth is very open and caring. He does not try to overwhelm you with a sale. He is calm and lets you look around. Initially we did not find anything and he started to look that afternoon for us. He was persistent and the last home he showed us was just what we were looking for. We placed an offer and it was accepted. During this entire process, Seth was always available to us. We were in Hawaii and did trust him with all the small details of closing on a home. I have bought 14 homes and Seth was by far the most helpful, professional and kind. We have developed a friendship with him. You could not do better than to work with Seth.”
– David Lewis


“Jessica and her team did an outstanding job of listing and selling my home. She went the extra mile and really hit it out of the park with professional staging and photoshoot along with a high quality video. Everything went as planned and sold for top dollar along with earlier closing date then expected. If you are looking for help with selling or buying look no further than these fine folk!”

– Ted Hatch

Jody Hill

– Paul & Annie Germenis

Kim Witham
“Kim Witham at Better Homes and Garden Northwest Team has a reputation of professionalism. This is one of the reasons why we selected her a second time as our real estate agent. The first time she introduced us to the housing market and helped us find our first home. The second time around she helped us put our house up for sale so that we can continue with our dream goal in building and she successfully completed the sale within a month. She uses all of her tools and resources to attract buyers for example through social media postings, handing out flyers, hosting open houses for brokers and potential buyers, and her communication skills are quick and responsive.
