"In our experience, the most effective realtors are found through referral rather than advertising. When we began exploring the possibilities of selling our Seattle home, friends recommended Betsy and Kate who helped us through the entire process. Thanks to their wise advice, we received multiple offers well above the listing price on our home which sold within a week. We could not have done so without Kate and Betsy’s guidance and gentle prodding on what we needed to do to get our house ready for listing. They were instrumental in bringing in a team of experts to make minor repairs, touch up the landscaping and deep clean from top to bottom. Kate’s superb staging added just the right finishing touches to truly make our home shine.
Once our home sold, we had a short window in which to find our next residence in Seattle’s hot housing market. We needn’t have worried. Seemingly overnight, Betsy and Kate showed us several properties that closely matched our needs and desires. And now here we are in our new home, happy and immensely grateful for Kate and Betsy who made it happen. We highly recommend their home selling and buying services!”

"Betsy and Kate are Proficient, Professional and Trustworthy. They helped me sell my home of 28 years, a condominium located in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood. It sold in 6 days, just as they laid-out in the sale timeline. Their comprehensive knowledge of the real estate market and attention to detail were demonstrated throughout the process. They were hands-on in helping prepare my home, completing the real estate paperwork and expedient in addressing questions. I highly recommend Betsy and Kate, they are a dynamic duo."

"We collaborated with Kate and Betsy Chamberlain to sell our home in Magnolia this May. Kate and Betsy are seasoned realtors with an in depth knowledge of the Seattle real estate market--an invaluable asset in pricing and marketing our home. Kate and Betsy have a keen understanding of how to highlight the best features of a home to appeal to prospective buyers. Throughout the entire planning and selling of our home, Kate and Betsy were always available, sometimes even on a moment’s notice, to assist us in any way. Kate and Betsy were our partners throughout the process, always giving 100+ per cent to ensure the best outcome for us, their clients. We recommend Kate and Betsy, without reservation, to anyone who is thinking of selling or buying a home in the greater Seattle area. Kate and Betsy are outstanding realtors and individuals."

"Kate and Betsy Chamberlin recently sold our house. Their careful preparation led to five offers during the few days that the house was on the market. Most offers were above our asking price (which they helped us arrive at), with the highest several hundred thousand dollars above what the house was listed for and far beyond our hopes.
Kate and Betsy were invariably available by phone or in person throughout the entire process. They gave us excellent advice on what did and did not need to be done before the house could be listed, saving us from unnecessary work, while ensuring that we didn’t ignore something that a buyer would care about. Their excellent connections meant they could call upon competent and efficient people to deal with the odds and ends, such as washing all the windows, cleaning carpets, that we didn’t have time to do. They were always at the house during critical periods in the process—for example for the inspection or when the photographer was taking pictures.
Our careers have involved several moves so we’ve bought and sold several houses. We mostly have had good agents, but we have never had a real estate agent as competent, smart, energetic, professional and nice as Betsy and Kate. Although buying and selling a house is almost inevitably stressful, working with Kate and Betsy has been a pleasure."

"Now we are in the last leg of the sprint, I would like to thank you both for excellent service. We were thoroughly impressed with you last year and even more impressed when dealing with you directly representing us. You presented the information and ground reality while not dousing our expectations. Very delicate line, but you walked it very well!"
