Sharri Bailey

It is my privilege to recommend Sharri Bailey to anyone who is searching for a new home. She is enthusiastic, honest, hard working, and has the knowledge of her trade. In my experience with Sharri, she never did anything rashly. She was always on time, meticulous and showed understanding of the skills she was practicing. She showed a professional demeanor while communicating with us, but also made us feel comfortable while doing so. I believe Sharri has the right character, job ethics, and skill level that people of Yakima are looking for while searching for their new home. She is intelligent, well spoken and really cares about her clients. Once she knows the direction that her clients want, she devotes every bit of her energy to achieving it. We are very pleased with our new home and we owe it all to Sharri's hard work.

Jaime Bocek

just wanted to take a moment to let you know how I feel about my recent home buying experience. Jaime Bocek was the realtor that I chose to use. She was a GREAT pleasure to work with. I am going to recommend her to anyone and everyone. She was always prompt and knowledgeable. She went above and beyond what was ever expected of her. Even when things got frustrating she was able to give us answers and get things done. She will be our realtor for life. I hope you at Windermere realize the great asset you have with Jaime.
-Chase Cypher

Jaime- Thank you so much for all of the work and time you put into selling our house. We've sold 3 other homes, and by the time the house sold I hated our realtor. I always felt like all they did was stick a sign in the front yard and walk away. You never did. From the very first day, you kept the house visible, had open houses, put it in the paper and always kept us informed of what was going on with the house. You are amazing! Thank you so much. I know the house never would have sold as quickly as it did with another realtor. I can't say enough how fantastic you are.

Freba Afzali

Freba is amazing! She was there every step of the way during the purchase of our first home. She always made sure to work her schedule around ours, so we could find a home we loved. She made sure that we got everything we asked for during the purchase of our home. She stayed in contact with the other agent making sure they were getting things done in a timely manner. Freba even helped us after we closed on our house when we were having problems with the furnace. She is simply the BEST agent out there....we love her!
-Lacey

Freba is the hardest working Realtor in Yakima. She is constantly working to improve her skills by attend seminars and classes to meet her client's needs. She works late into the night to get the information her clients need to make an informed decision on buying a home of their dreams. She is prompt returning your calls and is very easy to get in contact with. I highly recommend Freba as your realtor, she goes beyond the extra mile to make sure you are happy either selling or buying a home.
-Dale

Freba was amazing to work with. She was always there when we needed her and was great working around my busy schedule to still see the countless properties I ask her to show. She is great at understanding what you are looking for and never gets frustrated when you need to view more properties. Couldn't say enough good things about her, I have worked with a lot of agents and she was the best. From looking to closing everything went great.

Josh DeBoer

I decided to move to Yakima and Josh did all the work. He e-mailed me the listings as they became available, but I wasn't ready. One Sunday I was suddenly ready to do something, hit a few open houses and decided to make an offer. Josh took it from there and I was in my new home in less than 30 days. He works at Windermere and is a real go-getter. He even made sure the drainage problems were taken care of before I took possession although, at the time, it didn't matter that much to me. NOW I'm glad I had him working for me. Thanks, Josh!!

Karen Robel

We contacted Karen Robel in the winter of 2009. My husband and I were eager to sell and buy and wanted someone who would work with us and listen to our opinions while guiding us on the right path. Karen was up for the challenge. Our house was on the market for only three days before we got an offer. She turned right around and helped us work on finding our "new home". She kept us informed and on top of everything; working both sides of the process for us. When things felt frustrating, she was right there to keep us calm and offer her expertise. By Feb, 2010 our family of four was moved into our new home and ready for our next chapter to begin. We have now been settled for almost 9 months and still encourage our friends to contact Karen to help with their home buying/selling needs.

Last night I met with my referral source in Seattle ( they recently asked me for some help in Yakima). I'll be brief and to the point... They could not say enough positive things about Karen Robel, the agent to whom we were referred for the sale of a home in Yakima. She jumped in, put her professionalism to work and impressed the daylights out of my friends/clients. What a wonderful experience. We are on a smooth road to closing and I can't thank Karen enough
-Shelley Miller

I have found Karen Robel to be a good, trustworthy and hardworking realtor. We have sold 2 houses utilizing Karen as our agent. Both sales were in tough economic times and in neighborhoods with competitive homes in our price range. Karen worked closely with us to make sure our needs were met, and not only were both
sales made quickly (within weeks for our first house and less than 2 months for our next), but with minimal stress to our family.
I would highly recommend Karen to anyone interested in buying or selling a home. She has had a huge impact on our family as we grow and move.

Christina Hoover

Christina is wonderful to work with and always has her clients' best interests at heart. She knows Yakima County and has the experience to make the deal happen. Christina is not afraid to get though when she needs to on behalf of her clients. She stands out in her field with her professionalism, knowledge, and integrity; I would recommend her to everyone.
