>> WHAT PEOPLE SAY <<
"I normally do not write reviews. This is an exception. Steve Merwick recently handled both the sale of our residence and the purchase of a home as our broker. We had a compressed timeline to make both the sale and purchase of the two properties come together. However, it was smooth, seamless, no glitches along the way, and all aspects of the buy-sell transactions were handled with clear guidance and experienced counsel. Communication and his dogged attention to detail with other broker/agents, prospective buyers, escrow companies, and especially with us, his client, is key to successful transactions…and they were excellent. Aside from being fun to work with, he simply made it all easy. My wife and I could not recommend Steve more highly."

"Steve and Sophie are truly a dream team to work with. Whether preparing our house for listing or navigating contingencies, Steve and Sophie were both 100% on top of everything and always available to answer any of our questions. They made sure we were comfortable and knowledgeable about every decision throughout the entire process. It's hard for us to imagine working with anybody else!"

"I got to know, like, trust and admire Steve Merwick before I retained him to sell property for me. I was going to sell four condos and had talked with a real estate agent, but I had a per square foot minimum I wanted to sell above, so I asked Steve’s opinion on if the market would allow sales above my minimum. He looked into it, advised the units could be sold above my minimum and asked that I list the units with him, advising that he knew the sales area well. Steve was responsive to my inquiries by text, phone or email. All units sold above my expectations and in a timely manner. We have not yet had the dinner I promised him as a recognition of my appreciation for his advice and services."
"Steve Merwick worked with us to complete the sale of two unique pieces of property within Snohomish County; that were part of an estate. Steve offered suggestions and information about not only readying the property for show, but also researched county and legal codes along with an understanding of how the property could be used.
He was patient, knowledgeable, listened to our ideas, and easily worked with our attorney. When buyers wanted to see the property, Steve prepared the photos, cut a trail so the wooded piece of property could easily be walked, and showed the property. He addressed the questions of potential buyers, listened to our questions, and was able to effectively communicate with all of the parties involved.
He knew the potential for the property and offered suggestions about how to work with the parts of the property that presented a few challenges, such as a bridge over a natural creek, the tall trees that were on the property, and getting the property ready for showing. Steve was able to provide names of companies to have the property surveyed and to better understand water and utilities improvements that could be made in the future. Steve was available for conversation and always presented in a calm manner; greatly appreciated.
Steve is a professional and has experience in a variety of building and real estate. He confidently represented our interests and assured us through the process."

"You are in good hands when you work with Steve. He is a life long friend and has handled our family’s real estate for many years. We recently sold and purchased a new home, sold an investment property, and are now working on preparing a 15-acre parcel we own for sale. Steve also helped the family with my father-in-law's estate."
