We have known Denni Shefrin for a number of years and have always admired the cheerfulness, energy, and enthusiasm which she carried into each project or gathering in which we held a common interest or participation. When it came time for us to sell our home of nearly 34 years we knew she should be the one to guide us through that process.
Denni then launched into the business of preparing the home and us for the tasks ahead. All of the above mentioned traits were constantly in motion, and we were pleased to note that she carried out each step of the transaction in absolute honesty and integrity while we followed her instructions confident that we were staying on track and were working with one who deserved our confidence and trust. It was a complex business and Denni was there with her guidance through to the last of all the document signings. Thanks for the help, Denni.

Denni is such a caring, patient and helpful agent! Ten years ago my wife and I used Denni when we bought our first house. During the inspection phase Denni advised us to back out of one house we had an offer on. She instead showed us another house that was in excellent condition and it also better matched everything we were looking for. For ten years we talked about how thankful we were to have found Denni :) This summer we again used Denni Asa our agent when we decided to sell our house and buy another one. Her advise for house repairs before selling was excellent and we were able to get our asking price on both the old house and the newer one. She is someone you can trust to know the business, help you find what you are looking for and will work with you every step of the way!

I happened upon Denni Shefrin almost by accident. I came into the area for a weekend, and had been searching for an apartment for my move to the area. On a whim, I decided to call a local real estate office to see if anyone was available on short notice, on a Saturday afternoon. Denni was not only available, but also she was able to quickly narrow down the sort of house I was looking for and showed me a number of places. Over the next couple of months, Denni continued to work with me remotely, helping me find the perfect home. Once found, she helped me to make the purchase walked me through everything at my pace. She even coordinated things so I could live in my new home the day I arrived in the area. I would highly recommend Denni Shefrin.

"Thank you for the years of house hunting with patience and good humor and gentle prodding. We would never have gotten to this place in our lives and this house without your support, encouragement and professionalism. You were amazing and I will always be grateful."

After living in our home in Tam O' Shanter for 36 years we had no knowledge of Real Estate. Denni Shefrin stepped in to help us. She worked patiently. Not only did she explain everything carefully, but then e-mailed us, and brought copies for us to read - all in her easy but thorough way. There were no surprises, and even though it took seven weeks as the market was very slow - we always knew exactly where we were. It was very warm and friendly, but very professional! We have recommended her to everyone we know!

Thank you so very much Denni for your expert help selling my home. I was very skeptical about listing with an agent as I felt a realtor commission would diminish my return beyond what I needed. I was wrong. You stood by me through final renovations always going beyond expectations and making sure the property was properly cared for. This was major stress relief for me as an out of state seller. You always kept good contact while guiding me through the process. I would recommend you to anyone and certainly would be delighted to list with you again. You helped increase the value of my home enough to cover commission and MORE!!! Thank you for your professionalism and dedication to the speedy sale of my home. Bless You.

While contemplating a move from Kansas City to the Greater Seattle Area, we were in need of a Realtor who could help us find a home in an unfamiliar market. To complicate the matter, we were in the process of searching for a business to acquire, and as a result needed to find a home that was reasonably central to the metropolitan area for ease of commuting.
Denni conducted multiple house hunting outings with us while we still lived in Kansas City and when our place in the Midwest sold, she successfully steered us to a home we love, in a great neighborhood.
The time and effort that Denni put into preparation with us, allowed us to find an negotiate a home purchase in a very competitive market, and under short notice. We effectively sold our Kansas property unexpectedly while were in Pullman for our daughter's college graduation, and drove to Seattle the next day to find a home.
We have worked with some exceptional realtors over the years, and Denni is one of the best. We recommend her without reservation.

Kathy and I want to thank you for all of your hard work with the selection and purchase of our home. Your experience and knowledge was a tremendous help to us. We are very glad that we received your name and chose you as our agent. More importantly we are glad you stuck it out with us as I know we were not easy clients to work with due to our travel schedules. As I reflect back, here is a small list of the many things that you did for us.
1) You listened and noted all of the items what we thought would be an ideal home (even though Kathy and I were not in sync with these items).
2) With the help of your listing application, you allowed us to keep a favorites list of homes that you helped find.
3) We quickly found homes that appealed to us and spend hours upon hours touring them.
4) When we were involved in a offers, you helped to coach us through the process, and took time away from your family to write up the contracts and addendums.
5) You stayed in constant contact with us and other agents 7 days a week and all hours of the day and night. You even took the time to handle matters when you were on vacation trips. This demonstrated real dedication to us.
6) When it was determined that we were not going to reach an agreement for purchase on the home we first choose, you buckled down to help find us another home due to us being in a personal time crunch for moving from Virginia and our local rental lease ending.
7) After we found our next "ideal home", you were there every step of the way. You even helped by personally meet with contractors that could do necessary repairs to the home per the inspection (when I didn't have time).
8) You fought for us to make sure that all paperwork was processed by all parties so that we could meet our original closing date (which was very questionable for a while).
9) After the sale you have helped find us general maintenance firms we could trust as we were new to the area. If that weren't enough, you helped our son find a nice apartment to rent.
This list does not even begin to reflect the amount of effort you effort you provided over a year of time. You virtually became part of our family. If a time comes when we have to recommend an agent in the area you will with out a doubt be that person.
We love our new home and couldn't have done it without you. Words can't convey the respect and appreciation that we have for you. All I can say is thank you so very much.

"Thank you for the excellent service you provided me all along the process of selling my home. You offered just the right expertise to make entering my house an "aha" moment for prospective buyers. Each step of the way you provided the expertise which lead to the final sale occurring more rapidly and successfully than I had anticipated.
AJ Parker, Carnation, WA
"A million thanks to you for your hard work in helping me purchase my new home! The combination of your imagination and vision was the perfect match for mine to put together a very satisfying experience. Once the property was located, your single-minded devotion to "make-it-happen" laid groundwork and generated contacts that easily put me two years ahead of my original plans for the restoration of this beautiful piece of Snoqualmie Valley history."
S. Bell, Redmond, WA
"Denni's responsiveness was outstanding throughout our listing period. She brings a very high level of integrity to her clients and to her business".
Zach and Mary, Seattle, WA
"Buying our first house was really a pleasant experience thanks to Denni. Her vast knowledge of the market and industry combined with her hard work and diligence made this process easy for us. Denni has strong work ethic, organizational skills and is detailed oriented. She is also strong in communication and we knew we could trust her to keep us on track with this very big investment/adventure in life. After the sale was completed, Denni was excellent in following up with us to make sure everything was good and that we were all settled in. Anyone who has the chance to work with Denni is in very good hands."
We love, love our new home! We appreciate all of Denni's help and will definitely work with her again when we are ready for our next home. This, of course won't be for a long time."
The Lazzeris, Redmond, WA
"We are so grateful that we were able to sell our home (with your expert help) as we see so many on the market at this time. What we really appreciated was your calm reasoning during the final negotiation when some of the buyer's demands seemed so unreasonable to us. Many thanks for your good advice and help during this process."
L. Traynor, Redmond, WA
"And I want to thank you again for your work with my neighbor, Glen. I had never sold a house before and certainly never for anyone else. You walked me through the process, explained all the paperwork, kept track of the details and consistently followed up with me to keep the sale moving forward. I know we got a fair price for him which was a blessing given the condition of the house and the state of the housing market right now. When I had questions, I especially appreciated how you went out of your way to provide contact names and numbers, such as for the appraiser and the septic companies. I will be happy to send clients your way and you may certainly use me as a reference."
J. Toigo-Ouzts, Sammamish, WA
"Denni is a consummate professional--very personable, patient and knowledgeable. Working with her is like a breath of fresh air in an industry where mediocrity is so often the case."
Linda & Stan, Quilcene, WA
Thanks so much for all you did to make this purchase happen. The benefits of your expertise, dililgence and caring include literally - a lifetime of peace and quiet for us.
