Real Clients. Real Stories.
"Excellent knowledge of local market. Was incredibly patient with us. Didn’t push us and didn’t let us push him. Used him to buy our house and sell it nine years later."
"Evan is a tremendous real estate agent, I highly recommend him. I worked with him to purchase my home in Madison Park, WA and his experience and knowledge were paramount to completing a successful transaction. His guidance during the inspection and his resourcefulness in referring me to skilled contractors/advisers separates Evan from his peers. Most importantly, Evan made sure I was buying a house that fit my family needs, at the right price, and will be the place my family will create lasting memories."
"Very respectful of our privacy as we were making a major change in our lives. His negotiating skills were professional and he answered all of our questions as they came up. He was kind and patient with us as we made a life changing decision by selling our family home of many years and helped us find a suitable spot where we would be comfortable in a neighborhood that is perfect for us."
"I have used Evan for all my personal listings and purchases from day one. When clients ask for help in real estate, I have referred everyone. My reputation is on the line making referrals to help my clients and the confidence I have in Evan's abilities has never disappointed. Its nice to always have a "go to" person to get it done!"

His extensive experience in real estate, his caliber of business, and his ability to seamlessly manage problems that come up during a transaction make him unmatched in this market! I would highly recommend him to everyone in Seattle and the surrounding area - they will not be disappointed!"
"Evan came recommended to us by a friend and we are so glad to have worked with him to find our current home. Evan listened to our needs, was quick to respond, and did a great job focusing only on homes that met most or all of our requirements. He was very attentive and made sure we were well prepared, which significantly expedited our closing process. Evan brings a perfect balance of fun and professionalism that made our home search an overall great experience.

It had been a number of years since we had made a purchase and he spent all of the time we needed and was extremely patient with us. His local knowledge and his local contacts also helped us get through the inspections etc. seamlessly!"
"I've worked with Evan on my last two (2) real estate transactions and would recommend him highly. In my opinion, he differentiates himself amongst the field in that his priorities are aligned with mine: 1) value, 2) location and, 3) transparency. Evan understands that today's buyers and sellers are equipped with tons of information, his purpose is to augment that info with value-added real estate skills. I like to call him the "smart" REALTOR®. On a more personal level, he's just a likable guy too. Think about that when you're going to spend a lot of time with your REALTOR®!"
"Evan is fantastic, and I would highly recommend him. He is knowledgeable, responsive, and a genuinely great person.

I relied heavily on Evan's judgement, and he picked out the perfect place for me: he knows what his clients want and delivers."
"Evan is incredibly knowledge and very easy to work with. His knowledge of local neighborhood details across town was very impressive. He showed us pocket listings and new to market opportunities that helped us better understand what we needed. Strongly recommend working with Evan."
"We chose Evan to help us sell our home after speaking with several other REALTORS®. He was wonderful! He has the rare ability of having professionalism, expertise, knowledge of the market, and an incredibly friendly, easy-going personality. He sold our house within 5 days, negotiating over the asking price and allowing us to stay after it closed until our new house was ready. I would recommend him without reservation."
"Evan was excellent to deal with both when we sold our condos and when we bought our new home. He was extremely knowledgeable and was able to act fast when it really mattered!"
