Once a sale is closed, my office sends out a questionnaire to our buyer and seller clients, asking for feedback on how well we did. Here are some responses I've received:

  
 
~~~ 

 

[How would you describe the service you received?] Outstanding! We have lived in our present house for 35 years. Thus buying a new house was overwhelming with all the paper work to read and understand. Al walked us through each step from earnest $, house inspection and sewer inspection, and loan officer. Any questions we had Al replied in a timely manner.

 

[Is there something we could have done better?] Not that we can think of. Al made a very stressful journey easy through his knowledge and humor.  If Al ever retires, be sure to "clone" him. -Steve & Cindy Plancic (Magnolia purchase)

[How would you describe the service you received?]  Excellent!!! Took exceptionally good care of us as we went through the process of selling our home SUPER, WONDERFUL JOB AND CARE!!! [Is there something we could have done better?]  Not much, unless he could personally change the overall Seattle-King County Housing Market which would be quite an accomplishment!! [How did you learn about Windermere?]  Personal Contact Have known Al Johnson for several years. Did everything one could do to help us get our house sold, even in a difficult market, at a very reasonable price. Thanks. Please feel free to list us as references at any time!! --Jim Nelson and Terry Jacobs (Mount Baker)

Exceptional! Looked at Internet/Windermere's web site and saw Al's resume/write-up. When we first met Al, we felt very comfortable. He made us feel at ease, and confident that he had the experience, the knowledge of the market in Mt. Baker, the chutzpah to get the job done if it became rough; and a fabulous network behind him: Windermere. He proved our predictions over and over, by being "Johnny on the spot" for all of the big and little things that we needed. We loved him and his team and service! We highly recommend Al! --Joyce Altaras & Betty Altaras, Mount Baker

I wanted to share this with all of you in case you or someone you know is ever looking for property in the Mt. Baker or adjacent neighborhoods-- or if anyone living there ever has a house to sell. Al's experience and knowledge are unbeatable, and his focus on just this part of Seattle keeps him from being scattered all over town. We ran into problems that no rookie would have known where to begin to solve, but Al (almost) waved a magic wand. No matter how many times you do it, selling a house is stressful; and it makes the medicine go down a lot easier when dealing with a broker like Al who has a brilliant and wicked sense of humor!    --Kate Walker (Mount Baker)

[at mutual agreement] Thanks so much for the fantastic result. We are most delighted with the outcome. Being able to get such a good price in the minimal time possible certainly far exceeds our expectation. In addition to the great result, I must say I thoroughly enjoy seeing the whole event being carried out with good planning, excellent execution and high professionalism. Thanks again, and hope the rest of the process goes through smoothly. [following closing] Thanks for the most wonderful gift, I could not ask for a better present.  We shall treasure it and remember all the good times that we had.  You have made a difficult task as smooth and trouble free as possible for us.  --Ching Ho Chang and Meng Chao Yao (Mount Baker)

We received outstanding service. Al Johnson attended to all details in an exemplary manner. We have bought and sold many houses through the years, but we have never had such extraordinary service as we received with Al. From the moment we first contacted Al, we knew we were in good hands. He provided excellent advice in preparing our house for sale; his sales strategy got the house sold practically the moment it went on the market; he got us a sales price much above the asking price; and he and Susan closed the sale on time and with ease. Throughout, Al always kept us informed in a timely fashion. Everyone should use Al Johnson to sell their homes!--Pat Thorson & Elaine Bild (Mount Baker)

Excellent service! Everything that could have been done was done & done speedily. I have already told people about the service & friendliness of Al & Susan-- my many thanks to them both. --Dorothy Neff (Seward Park)

Above and beyond all expectations. The rare mix of personal and professional. We are so thankful for Al's help selling two properties before our move across the country... a million thanks. Thanks, too, for the beautiful picture book of our home. What a nice surprise. We have it up on our mantel. Needless to say we all shed a few tears. Thanks for your thoughtfulness.  --Love, Carol, Jim, Julia, Esme & Harvey Eubanks (Beacon Hill)

I can't thank you enough for the great job you did on selling my Aunt's home in Columbia Heights. You told me before signing what you would do and when, and by golly that was exactly what you did. From the day I signed the papers to sell the house, you had everything ready to go and I signed the purchase and sale agreement five days later and for a better price than was listed. Then you held my hand and guided me through the whole thing, even to the extent I panicked while you were on vacation, called you on your cell and you most graciously calmed me down and answered my question. If everyone had the experience I had with selling a home, life would be so much easier. --Sandy Drake (Columbia Heights)

Al Johnson's encyclopedic knowledge of the Mt. Baker/Seward Park area combined with his willingness to explore other neighborhoods served us very well. We quickly came to trust Al's judgment of a potential home because he is observant, analytical, and offered potential solutions for house problems without trying to sell us a bad fit. Through the Christmas holidays, Al was always responsive and available to answer our many questions, and he successfully completed negotiations on our offer just before midnight on New Year's Eve. His working relationships with other agents and excellent communication skills eliminated our need to worry about transfer of documents and information. With Al, we felt that we were in capable, competent care, and we will undoubtedly be return customers.  --Mark & Jennifer Hickey (Seward Park)

Al provided a level of service that is all too rare in today's residential real estate market. In addition to being very professional and highly knowledgeable, Al was a joy to work with. Al went out of his way to provide those extra things that make for exceptional service and a truly smooth sale process. I have dealt with a lot of residential real estate agents throughout Western Washington and a lot of agents at other Windermere offices, and Al Johnson stands out as a top agent and a top performer.  --Fred Graham (Lakewood)

Mr. Johnson provided very attentive and personalized service, even to the point of communicating with loan officers to smooth the way for a successful transaction. Even though he was the listing agent representing the seller, I as the buyer felt that he remained scrupulously fair to both parties in order to best facilitate the transaction to the satisfaction of both parties. The attention I received from Mr. Johnson at all phases of the transaction far exceeded my expectations, especially when compared to the service I had received during my first home purchase in 1998. Highly recommended. --Henry Li (Madrona)

Al Johnson is professional, available, personable, honest, and a joy to work with. He guided us through each stage of our transaction with caring and sensitivity. Moving after twenty years was quite a task for us. We appreciated Al's thoroughness and responsibility in selling our home. He was available and considerate in every step-- from the asking price decision, to the preparation of ad materials, to locating a handyman to help prepare the house, to the loan of sign boards for our garage sale, to his presence at the escrow closing-- to represent our interests. We have never appreciated an agent more than we do Al, and would be happy to offer our reference for him any time!  --Bill & Sally Euster (Seward Park)

Al Johnson was wonderful. He was very down to earth, and a real person we felt comfortable with immediately. This is our first house, and he took a lot of time with us in explaining all the procedures and paperwork! He made both my husband and myself feel very comfortable through the purchase of our home.  --Peter and Tracey Galarosa (Skyway)

Best I've ever utilized as a buyer or seller in 30 years of residential real estate: 5 houses/ 5 pieces of undeveloped residential property. Al's reputation is unparalleled in the Mount Baker area, and for good reason.  --Marc Mauney (Mount Baker)

Al Johnson was excellent! We felt very prepared and supported through the whole process. He helped prepare and price our home just right, wrote a great flyer, and did a wonderful job. We will definitely recommend Al Johnson to any of our friends who are buying or selling in Seattle!  --David & Connie Shank (Seward Park)

Al is a consummate professional, always guiding, never pushing us into any decisions. We recommend Al to all our friends!  --Jim & Bill MacKellar-Hertan (Lakewood, Leschi & Wedgewood)

This guy knows his stuff. We will use Al again if need be, without question. We will also give glowing referrals.  --Tom & Jean Kraabel (Leschi)

Al did a fantastic job, beginning well before we listed our house. He gave us good advice about preparing it for the marketing, and he made himself available-- often on short notice-- to walk through the house & talk with us. He did a great job of marketing the house and in negotiations. We highly recommend him to friends.  --Kay Stein & Vernon Threlkeld (Mount Baker)

Stupendous! Al was knowledgeable about area, prices, and houses. I couldn?t have asked for more patience or help. I think "Uncle Al" was a wonderful agent. --Diana Robbins (Judkins Park)
