Client Testimonials

Thanks for your note and for all the help you've been to us during our recent "expedition."  You've proven yourself to be a most worthy guide!  We're thrilled to see the transaction finally close, and Joanie and I are planning to have a celebration toast on the deck this coming weekend!

Randy & Joanie

I would like to take a moment to thank you for all your guidance, patience, and never ending support during my first home buying experience.  You have made this process such a stress-free environment, and I think you deserve the praise.  You have been a joy to work with and I am so thankful I reached out to the NAEBA to find such a reputable Buyer’s Agent.  And kudos to Suze Orman for recommending the NAEBA, and to them for referring you to me.


Ian was fantastic!  I chose to work with him because his firm was the only Buyer Agent firm recommended by NAEBA in my area.  It worked out very well!  He was extremely patient in answering all of my questions, right through to the key hand-off.  His honesty as we viewed homes, in terms of quality, resale, neighborhood, etc., was a huge benefit.  All-in-all, it was a great experience.  I plan to work with Ian again in the future and I will recommend him and NAEBA to friends and family.

Thank you


We wanted to thank you for being our guide on our first home-buying venture. You helped us navigate this unfamiliar territory and shepherded us through the whole process. We couldn't be more thrilled with the house. Thank you for capping our first house experience with that extra special touch. We really appreciate it.

Karl & Kathryn

We just wanted to say thank you again. We are camping out in the house until our stuff arrives at the weekend. Everything is going really well. We love the house! Everone says to us "How did you know to pick Squak Mountain? Its the nicest place in King County". Jeff's response is "That's easy, we had great realtors."  We would love to share our experience with others - what's the best way to do that?

Laura & Jeff

We were, and continue to be, very satisfied with our business relationship with First Exclusive and are quite pleased with the residence we bought, especially the neighborhood and it’s surroundings.  After buying our residence with Ian, we have continued to work with him in acquiring several investment/rental properties in Seattle, and the buying experience has been consistent and professional in each instance.  We also recommended him to a relative who was buying a residence in the Seattle area, and they were quite pleased with Ian’s work and did buy a property they are very happy with.

George & Ching

Ian, you are wonderful! Thank you for your generosity - the coffee mugs are fabulous! We love the condo & truly enjoyed working with you! Cheers to you!

Jennell & Jim

Ian was very outgoing and accomodating around my family (including children) and helped make them feel very much a part of the process.  He offered his opinion and recommendation when appropriate, and always did so based on what he thought the needs of MY family would be.  Very customer focused.  He allowed my wife and I to give a lot of direction and guidance in the search for the house and didn't try and direct us to houses/areas that we wouldn't have any interest.  He made the actual paperwork process very easy and responded to my questions concerning our new house, even after the sale was closed.  I would definitely work with Ian again!

Ben & Melody

I appreciate your help in finding my new home - hopefully this will not
be our last journey together.


Thank you SO MUCH for yours and Jeretta's help. Can't believe this is actually happening. Can you come by the tomorrow evening to drop off the key? We'll have a glass of wine as a toast. Thanks!
