“Erin is great at her job. She is incredibly knowledgeable, thoughtful, caring and also not afraid to have the tough conversations when necessary. We had a number of issues during our search and we could always count on Erin to help pull things together for us. Erin is accountable, has high degree of integrity for her craft and always delivered when needed. I would most certainly recommend her services. She will get our business again.”
Relocating is never an easy task for a family.

Relocating during a pandemic? That is almost impossible. Certainly, a very daunting task.

It was sincerely such a pleasure to work with this family. They had so many concerns about having to relocate their family from San Francisco to Seattle, Washington during these trying times. Not only were we dealing with a pandemic, but we were dealing with being surrounded by forest fires the majority of the time as well. We had to sell their home in San Francisco, and purchase a home for them here. The timing and balance of all of these moving parts were important.

I was able to not only assist them with coordinating all of those steps successfully but finding creative ways of keeping their family safe while these steps were taking place, during the pandemic.

I am happy to say, that we were successful in finding them the perfect property, in the perfect neighborhood and everyone is safe, healthy, and happy.

It is important to find a broker who listens and cares enough to take your concerns seriously. With real estate and with life, both are important.
Does your broker make you feel important?
Do they answer the phone when you call?
Do they instill confidence in you?
Do they work hard to ensure your success?
No?
Then why do you work with them?
Call me, my clients matter.
I look forward to meeting you.

Buying your first house can be a really overwhelming endeavor. Not knowing the steps, not knowing where to start, or how to get there. In this competitive market, it seems almost impossible.

It’s really important to choose a well-seasoned broker, who can help you navigate this process and one that can educate you so that you understand all of the processes involved. Every step is important, from your first to your last.

I had such a good time working with these two clients. Not only was it their first home purchase, but it was their first purchase in this country. I was honored to be selected to help them with such a huge life step. It was so satisfying for me to see them go from having really no idea how to start the process, to becoming savvy real estate investors after working together. I have no doubt that they will be successful in every step they choose to make in real estate future-forward.

I wish them many years of happiness in this one of a kind property!

Fall is the best time to buy and prepare for your sale!


Welcome Fall!Compliments of Erin Harold

Fall is the best time of year to prepare your game plan for both buying and selling. Our extremely competitive market here in the King, Snohomish, and Pierce county areas plateaus slightly during the fall and winter months. This is the PERFECT time to buy. Prices are down and sellers are much more motivated to sell this time of year, giving you more negotiating power. This is the time for you to get the best bang for your buck on any property purchase. 

This is also the time of year all of my investors start buying those buildable lots! If you have been sitting on a property that would be an asset to a builder and thinking about this option for your property sale, call me!!! It is one of my specialties!  Although you can list any time of year successfully,

Spring is the best time to list your property for sale, to acheive the highest rate of return. The highest priced property sales are typically registered in the months of May and June. Which means those homes were on the market in April or May. RIght now is the best time for you to reach out to me and let me help you utilize the winter months to expertly prepare your home for a successful Spring listing!  

Preparation. Presentation.Timing.
These are the skills that are required to provide extraordinaty results. 

 Providing my clients with a stress-free, positive experience and delivering exceptional results is my #1 priority. The reason my results beat those of my competitors, is because of the expertise that I bring to your table. My level of experience, education and knowledge of the market is unmatched. I am known for powerful negotiations, attention to detail, and masterful planning, which delivers excellent results and your success in any purchase or sale.  

In fact, the Sotheby’s International Realty brand draws more attention to your listings, and to your offers, because of our world renowned reputation for excellence. Our exclusive marketing platform is so vast, that it draws in interested buyers, globally. That becomes an insurmountable roadblock to all of my competitors because no other brand can match the level of finesse, attention to detail, or marketing reach that I can provide. What that means to you is: you achieve successful results. Every time 

Want to downsize? Want to begin a new investment? Want to upgrade?
Have a friend or family member who needs my help?

How hard does your broker work for you?


 JUST PURCHASED 

Mercer Island Masterpiece
4465 Forest Ave SE, Mercer Island, Wa 98040 
Purchased: $6,900,000
MLS #: 1453721 


A one of a kind, work of art. This property is one of the most extraordinary homes I have ever had the pleasure to witness in my career, to date. The stunning master-level design and majestic esthetic design was created by Robert Hutchison Architecture and expertly constructed by E & H Construction. Boasting over 7000 square feet of luxury modern and custom finishes, everywhere you place your gaze you are reminded of how much expertise was used to create this dramatic space. 



The custom modern esthetic throughout this home was designed to work in perfect harmony and balance, with the nature surrounding the home. 



Perfectly placed at the water’s edge, with extreme privacy and unparalleled vies of Lake Washington, there are few other properties that could come close to the grandeur of this one. Complete with a separate Lakeside home, designed exclusively for your indulgent privacy or for visiting guests. 



  Offering falling water gardens on all three levels of this property that lullaby your senses into tranquility. as you make your way down to its grand lakehouse.


 In every room, you are surrounded by breathtaking views. With every step, you are reminded of how the design of this home was built with flow and art combined to perfection. An impressive theater room, a grand office with a view, a custom chef’s kitchen, two dining rooms for entertaining, state of the art, high tech smart home technology and private bathrooms in every bedroom, this designer thought of every detail to provide comfort, beauty and luxury. 

THE FAMILY
This has to quite literally have been one of my favorite sales of all time, I had the pleasure of working with this family for over 2 years.  We met in one of my open houses in Bellevue, Washington. They were at that time, residing abroad. They had the intention or relocating back to our area of the Unite States nearly a year later, but were not sure where they wanted to be. I took their information, as they were flying out just days later. 

I contacted them remotely, via email, and found out they really wanted to be on Mercer Island, Washington. However, as they were partially unfamiliar with the area and its’ schools, they needed time to relocate and feel out the area before deciding where to buy. They decided they wanted to rent something during that period of investagotary area study. I took them on virtual tours, and was able to locate the perfect rental that fit their criteria. I proceeded to handle the rental transaction for them, so that when they landed in the airport with their family, they could go directly to this new rental, no stress, no headaches. 

We then began the study period. During this time, they considered all aspects of the island, vs other areas like Bellevue and Hunts Point. Settling on the dynamic of Mercer Island, we began to narrow down their search to which areas fit them best. We also discovered exactly what their dream home would consist of, in a perfect world. Upon minimizing our search to a very specific point on the island, I continued to study the entire island and its listings vs sales, in order to ensure the accuracy of price on their interested properties. 

One morning, I noted a property that was the absolute description of their dream property. It was located in a different part of the island, but I suggested we go see it for a comparative analysis anyways. We did this, and immediately realized this was the one for them and their family. Exactly what they wanted. It had only been on the market one day, when we went to see it. Their reaction to it made me realize we had to strike immediately, to ensure their success. It had not even had an open house, prior to me facilitating their offer to purchase and a successful mutual acceptance. Both the buyer and the seller were elated at the results of how smooth this transaction was.

I am so happy for this family, and was honored to be chosen to help them with this huge life journey. I know this home will be a family legacy for years to come.

 It is no easy task to bring a property sale of this size to a successful close. There are many facets, and many studies that need to be considered in great detail. A big thank you to the Katie Penny Shea and Molly Penny of CBBain Mercer Island, and to WFG National Title and Escrow teams for working so hard to bring this record-breaking property sale to a smooth, effortless close. Your attention to detail, and marked professionalism shows in the expert level quality of your results. Sincerely.

Henley Park Estates              
23719 NE 170th St, Woodinville 98077
MLS # – 1458657       Sold: $855,000

Sellers often ask me:
” Is there really a difference in which real estate company we list with?”
Are staging and marketing presentation really that important? “
The answer is, YES!!!!!

I was competing against another broker for this listing and I was honored to be chosen based on my experience, my education, my market knowledge and the un-paralleled and extensive marketing power I provide as a Sotheby’s International Realty agent.This home happens to be sitting just 2 homes away from another property that listed for sale about 2 weeks before this one, on the same street. The homes are very similar in layout, design and size. My clients’ property was listed and went pending in just 4 days, closing without a hitch and on time. The other property, sadly, is still listed for sale to this date.
The difference, in my professional opinion, is simply this: correct pricing, exceptional preparation, state of the art staging, extraordinary marketing presentation and access to listing placement on our exclusive global marketing platform. 
Presentation matters. Marketing matters. Price matters. Timing matters.
The proof is in the sale.  

Definitely of the most fun couples I have ever had the pleasure to work with, this transaction was fun from start to finish! Thank you both for trusting me with the sale of your home and again with the purchase of your new forever home! The pleasure was definitely all mine.  

Come experience the beauty.

Providence Point
4071 223rd Place SE Unit #2021, Issaquah, WA 98029MLS #: 1420512 
Sold: $430,000

 I met these two clients at a time when they were down-sizing from the home they raised their family in for nearly 30 years. A huge step to be sure! When I asked them to describe for me what their next dream property might look like, they gave me a long list of items to search for. Within just a few short weeks, I found it! Matching all of their criteria, my clients absolutely fell in love with this property and I was able to procure it for them, below asking price.

 I am so honored to have been chosen by a respected colleague, out of our Golden Gate Sotheby’s International Realty office, with the referral of her long treasured clients. Especially with such a huge life changing event as this one was for them. These clients are amazing people and a dream to work with.I wish you both all of the fun and bliss this new life chapter will create for you both!

Off Market Sale 

Federal Way Charmer
33223 30th Ave SW, Federal Way, Wa 98023
Sold: $375,000

One of the most touching sales in my career. I was honored to be selected to assist this couple with the sale of the home they raised their family in for over 30 years. They were downsizing into their next forever home, which I also had the pleasure of assisting them with.During the process, they felt they wanted to do something special with this home. They did not want the stress or headache of listing this home for sale on the open market. They asked me to help them sell it instead, off-market. They also wanted the sale of their family home to mean something.

They had a treasured neighbor couple, who they had been friends with a long time. They knew this couple was interested in buying their first home. They spoke to them about it and this neighbor was, in fact, interested in purchasing their home. I was then asked, by both parties, to assist them both in the sale of this home between friends. 

I was flattered and delighted by this request. Helping people buy their very first home is my favorite thing to do! They always have a lot of questions, and I enjoy teaching them all about the process at every turn. Two of the nicest and most genuine people I have ever met, helping this couple to buy their first home, was very fulfilling.I hope they enjoy many years of creating lasting memories in their new home!Congratulations to both buyer and seller on such a fantastic property sale!
