"Larissa did a superb job selling 2 properties. When my sister passed away, I had two houses to sell from the estate. Larissa tailored her advice to each of the homes in their respective neighborhoods and conditions. She recommended specifics using her local knowledge and research to maximize the price received with the least amount of effort and money spent. Her background in home remodeling and design was so helpful for me. She understood the time frame, costs associated with making improvements, she was able to guide me to contractors and places where I could make affordable improvements with major payoffs. Besides being friendly and super accessible, she saved me a lot of time, heartache and $$$. We had a bidding war on one of the houses and the other became home to a lovely family, something my sister would have appreciated. Larissa was recommended by a friend and I’m so glad I chose her as my realtor. I appreciated her straight talk, honesty, integrity - and her above-and-beyond level of attention in selling the properties."

"Larissa Wilson is excellent at providing personalized service. It is clear she is busy and juggles a wide variety of listings, but what I admired most is she made us feel we mattered. We certainly were not her highest listed property and our property came with challenges, but she made a work plan with us and helped us get everything done. She is not a realtor that will just come stick a sign in your yard and expect a commission. I had been thinking about using Redfin to save some money on commission, but honestly, her management of our home showed me why having an accessible realtor is so important. We have no regrets in choosing Larissa as our listing agent and believe her work resulted in a higher than asking price for our home."

"I first met Larissa Wilson during an open house in West Seattle several years ago. While I was not in need of an agent at the time, I was in need of a contractor. So she went out of her way to identify several options to address a serious problem. Based on this positive interaction, I eventually utilized her services on the purchase of additional property. Her understanding of the market trends and negotiation skills made it possible for me to secure this highly sought after property over multiple offers. She provided me with the level of confidence I needed by preparing market research regarding current and future property value with a keen understanding of the neighborhood pros and cons. There is no doubt that Larissa had my best interest in mind at all times. She is smart and passionate about real estate, warm, personable, patient, knowledgeable, organized and forward thinking. She understands when to agree and respectfully disagree with issues and concerns. I have visited several houses for which Larissa worked with the seller to prepare and then list. Many of these required upgrades in paint, flooring, lighting, etc. I've seen the before/after and found her selections to be amazing. Her art and design background are very useful in this regard! Her taste in staging has turned these properties into homes that are hard to resist. I also found her to be tech and social media savvy when successfully marketing her listings. The properties sold quickly and often for more than expected. Everyone was happy! I have recommended Larissa to several of my friends who have also been exceptionally pleased with her services. And I will gladly use her services in the near future. So should you!"

"I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Larissa for the past few years and quite honestly it would be nice to clone her! We have very specific requirements for investment properties that require "turning over stones". It is not an understatement that she simply "gets it" and I don't find myself wasting time looking at opportunities that don't meet our criteria.
This frequently involves looking into land use and other complicated issues surrounding our desire to build equity into all of our projects. Once we have settled on pursuing a potential opportunity her follow through and tenaciousness always gives us the best fighting chance in an increasingly competitive real estate market. With frequently more than one "bidder", she has the grace and fortitude to separate our offer from others.
I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone!"

"We interviewed four agents before selecting Larissa…One of which had sold us our first two homes and sold one of our homes. It was a big decision not hiring the agent who we had worked with on three prior transactions. However, we had to do what we felt was right and that was to hire Larissa. We hired Larissa for a number of reasons. We felt that she would take our listing very seriously and give our home the time and attention needed to sell it. Larissa promised us that she would work harder for us than any agent…and she did. Working with Larissa felt like a total collaboration. We had several ideas on marketing our home and she was agreeable to them. She had an open mind and she was creative. In addition to

"A neighbor let me know that Larissa helped an older couple in the neighborhood prepare their home for sale, that she had an excellent artistic sense, was a results person, and that she represented them well. I am so grateful to the neighbor! Larissa is a well-balanced broker with a huge knowledge base, superior communication skills, durable and efficient problem-solving skills, and the tenacity to provide the driving force for the process. The neighbor specifically suggested Larissa so I did not consult with other Berkshire Hathaway
but compared to 3 other non-BH brokers I'd consulted and almost signed with, Larissa was clearly the best person to represent my interests. Preparation of the property and advertising were done rapidly and efficiently, with Larissa hiring and managing workers at the site. We had a higher offer from a buyer needing financing and whose buyer's agent was phlegmatic. Yet, she persevered, and the deal closed. A lot of effort on Larissa's part in order that I get the higher priced offer. Larissa's professionalism shielded me from the ups and downs of the process, and I am grateful for her larger view of the process. I highly recommend Larissa."
