Brian Harwood's Reviews & Ratings

Brian Harwood

    • Brian was an absolute pleasure to work with as a broker. He was really knowledgeable about our neighborhood, and he gave us some great advice before we put our condominium on the market. Without Brian's help, we never would have captured the sales price we received for our home. We look forward to working with him again just as soon as we are ready to buy a house.

      - Sarah Guenther, Kenmore WA
    • Brian is AMAZING!!! He made our first time home buying experience in this crazy market an extremely easy and stressless process. While interviewing realtors, Brian stood out because of his superb experience and knowledge and his devotion to the client and their needs. He was always excellent at communication and very easy to reach when we had questions. He took the time to go to all the house tours with us and knew all the right questions to ask and all the right things to look for/look at while shopping for a house. We found the house of our dreams at 3pm on a Sunday afternoon and the sellers of the house were reviewing offers THE NEXT DAY and needed all offers to be submitted by 1pm Monday. Brian immediately set things in motion and was able to schedule an inspection for 9AM Monday and seamlessly worked with our loan officer to get our offer submitted ASAP before the deadline. And by Tuesday he called us to let us know we got the house!! Because of Brian's expertise, we were able to beat out multiple other offers on the house. Not only did Brian secure our dream home for us, but he also got us in contact with a great contractor who is currently helping us remodel our newly bought home. Since Brian is so well-known and entrusted in the business, he also knows all the right people to help you, from getting the right loan officer to finding trustworthy inspectors and contractors. Brian and his team go wayyyy above and beyond for their clients. We will DEFINITELY be seeking him in the future if we ever need a realtor again!!

      - Crystal Kim, Kenmore WA
    • Brian was personable and professional. We hardly had to lift a finger, he just made things happen.

      - Steve Palmer, Edmonds WA
    • As someone who has been in the real estate industry for over 40 years, I recognize excellence when I see it. Brian did an outstanding job selling our house. He did all the things you want and expect your agent to do and more.

      - Bob Howe, Lake Stevens WA
    • Brian is incredible at what he does- he has helped my family out (MY ENTIRE FAMILY) with every housing transaction they have done. I would recommend him 10/10.

      - Kristina Anderson, Kirkand WA
    • Brian is very professional and knowledgeable as it relates to his business. We found him to be trustworthy and dependable throughout our experience with him. We would highly recommend him to anyone buying a home who is also looking for guidance and counseling as part of the process, without reservation.

      - Femi Lakaru, Bellevue WA
    • Dealing with Brian was awesome. Buying our first investment property should have been stressful, but the knowledge and experience in investing that Brian brought to the table was a great positive compared to most people that would just show you houses. He' and his assistant kept us updated on every step of the way and held our hand while we crossed the T's and dotted the I's.

      - Max Garerro, Seattle WA
    • Brian worked really hard to help me find what I was looking for. He kept at it until we found the best fit for me, and all the way through to a completed purchase. I'll happily bring more business his way.

      - Jeremy Grady, Maple Valley WA
    • Our experience with Brian was excellent from beginning to end. He is very professional and knowledgeable. He has a team of people that can help coordinate anything you might need from total remodel to staging for the sale. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing real estate services.

      - Catia Gavigan, Kirkland WA
    • Brian provided expert advice to get top dollar for our home. He was there for every detail of our remodel prior to sale. His contacts and sources were greatly appreciated. All with a smile - we count him a friend.

      - Richard Guenther, Bellevue WA
    • Brian and his team helped us get into a great house. He gave us good advice as first time buyers and put in extra effort when an opportunity presented itself.

      - Will Thomsen, Bothell WA
    • Getting into the housing market in this time could have been very stressful but Brian was a calming presence during our search. He helped my wife and I through the process of building our priority list and the neighborhoods and communities where we would find homes that fit our wants/needs. While doing walk throughs he was a keen observer of our likes and dislikes and was able to validate those throughout the process. In this market it would be a miracle not to lose out on a bid or two and when we did it was Brian who was able to listen and encourage us to keep going. We eventually found the perfect home for us. I am typing this from the house that we found and got into because of his knowledge and understanding how to be competetive in this market. He is hardworking professional and my wife and I highly recommend you use him.

      - Steve Darrow, Renton WA
    • Brian Harwood was a true professional throughout our home buying experience. We were extremely happy with Brian's attention to the details. During the process he was always available to answer any of our questions and concerns. Believe me, there were a lot of questions.We highly recommend Brian Harwood when it comes to your real estate needs.

      - Tucker Tomesek, Snohomish WA
    • We had the pleasure of working with Brian when the market was HOT! Brian helped guide us in updating our old house from start to finish maximizing value, while still being cost conscious. He held our hand in finding a trust worthy contractor to work with, assisted with managing the contractor and remodel project and pointed us in the right direction for everything from paint colors, kitchen counters and everything in between! He provided staging which turned out perfect, added to curbside appeal by providing yard maintenance and his marketing materials were very professional. We could not believe what our house looked like when the project was completed and it was on the market! Brian worked with us through all of the ups and downs of this process, was incredibly detailed, and followed through on every level, which enabled us sell for top dollar.Brian also assisted us to find our forever home. He was instrumental in the negotiations process during a very competitive market. Without Brians ability to negotiate, we may not have been successful in purchasing our forever home located in our target neighborhood!Brian made the process of buying, selling and updating very easy and as pain free as possible. His constant professionalism and in-depth knowledge of the industry played an important role throughout the entire process. We highly recommend Brian and now count him as not only a trusted advisor, but a friend.Moriah and Mark Oster

      - Moriah Oster, Sammamish WA
    • My husband and I recently bought a house with Brian as our agent. He was good at figuring out the type of houses we would like and helping us navigate the process. As this was our first home purchase, we had many questions. He always responded promptly and was quite informative. We would work with Brian again.

      - Emma Schmidgall, Redmond WA
    • Pam and I would like to give a "Laurel and Hardy" thank you to Brian and Amanda for a great job. Knowledge and experience of the real estate market was a plus. Maximized the value of our property.

      - Craig Smith, Seattle WA
    • Brian spent a lot of time working with us to find exactly the house we wanted in the middle of a seller's market. We competed against all cash offers, over asking, often with inspections waived. He was able to find us a wonderful home and convinced the seller to accept our offer the day after it was listed! Brian was accessible any time and was able to work around our schedules. We will happily recommend him.

      - Jason Chu, Kirkland WA
    • Brian has represented me on three real estate transactions and I could not be more happy with the level of service and professionalism he has provided. Most recently, he acted as my selling agent and was able to sell the property for well above asking price and close on the sale quickly. You will not find a more knowledgeable or motivated agent.

      - Austin Mixsell, Normandy Park, WA
    • Short Story:- First home owner- Looked at all over the maps- Have no clue of what I'm looking for and flexible on budget- End up buying a beautiful condo in FremontReview of Brian:- Understand the market very well on either side of Washington.- Great communication skills and resources.- Understand the process and law very very well.- He is more of advisor than a salesman.- He is there when you need him.Longer Story:I'm a first home owner and have very little knowledge of buying a property. In the beginning, I was looking all of the places (Juanita, Kirkland, Fin hill, Bellevue, Overlake, Seattle, Ballard, Fremont, Greenwood, Lake City, etc.), it was because the crazy market and I just want to understand which area is the best for me to live and investment.Brian has been nothing but awesome in helping me understand what I'm looking for. He gives his expertise on the property that we looked at, and very patient, he never rushed me or make me feel rushed. His communication skills is amazing and very clear, and his assistant, Amanda, is very helpful.

      - Micheal Seng, Seattle WA
    • I met Brian at a Rotary meeting at a time when I wasn't looking to buy a house. And though I know many real estate agents, Brian was the one I turned to last year when it came time to buy.His upbeat, can-do attitude and willingness to help my family see as many properties as we wanted in order to discover what we were looking for was very reassuring.Brian made the purchase negotiation easy for us and always followed through with his promises and with returning calls. It was great to work with someone who clearly loves what he does and, in a people profession, Brian clearly loves working with his clients.

      - Dirk Farrell, Seattle WA
    • Brian worked hard with us using our criteria to find us a perfect condo to live. As first time buyers he went an extra mile explaining the process and helping us along including recommending a bank that would help us. He then went on to buy us a house warming gift sent us birthday cards and his Christmas letter. He is a wonderful friend and will help you find that perfect place. I would reccomend him to everyone in the area and would use him again.

      - Anthony Freeman, Brier WA
    • Brian was so helpful to us in every way. As first-time home buyers, we really had no idea what we were doing, but Brian navigated us so smoothly through the process and made the whole experience a positive one. We're so excited to move into our new house! Thanks to Brian and his team for all their hard work!

      - Andrea Sherodd, Edmonds WA
    • My wife and I are extremely impressed with the service, backed by experience and knowledge of the real estate market, which we received from Brian Harwood at Windermere. His advice and professional help with staging our house, as well as the skillful way he presented it to buyers, made all the difference in our ability to maximize the value of our investment. We highly recommend him.

      - Dan Crandall, Kirkland WA
    • My husband and I were first-time home buyers and Brian Harwood was recommended to us by both a family member and our loan officer. His knowledge and experience helped make the entire experience so easy for us. Both Brian and his assistant Amanda were very responsive and efficient and were great to work with. You cannot go wrong by having Brian on your team!

      - Amber Oldham, Enumclaw WA
    • Brian is terrific!It took me two years to find a area to my liking and when I did I called Brian to help me purchase new construction and to market and sell my existing home. He did so with speed and great ease. He is very knowledgeable and a great guy. He is like a family friend. You want an agent....get Brian.

      - Elaine Mattucci, Everett WA
    • Brian made home-selling an easy experience. He was very informative and invested his time and resources into our home sale success. We have already recommended him to friends!

      - Jennifer Hurley, Kirkland WA
    • Brian was always there we wanted to see someplace on a tight time window and helped us assess what to look for in the local market. He was also patient. When we found the right place, he walked us through making a solidly competitive offer (which won) and has excellent instincts on sale prices.During closing his assistant Amanda was on top of everything throughout the process.

      - Michael Olson, Kirkland WA

      - Tiffany Jaber, Seattle WA
    • My wife and I so glad we chose Brian to be our Real Estate Agent. Brian's insight and knowledge of the greater Seattle area real estate market was invaluable. He was willing to help us find the right house for us regardless of it's location on The Eastside - we looked as far north as Monroe, and as far south as Black Diamond. Brian was readily available via email and phone for any questions we had throughout the process. He was friendly and easy to work with. Brian was very patient with our initial indecisiveness, we were first-time home buyers at the time, but also helped us keep things in perspective. I would recommend Brian to all of my friends and family!

      - Jacob Jelovich, Monroe WA
    • Brian Harwood is an outstanding broker. I am a real estate lawyer and I have the opportunity to see and evaluate many brokers in the Puget Sound region. Brian is the best of the best! I used Brian to purchase my home in 2015. You will not find a more knowledgeable agent or zealous advocate. It took me over a year to find my home and Brian drove me all over Snohomish and King County looking at properties. I have recommended Brian to my family, my friends and to my clients. You will not be disappointed if you use Brian to list your home or to purchase your next property.

      - Jennifer Sehlin, Seattle WA
    • Brian is very knowledgeable about the local area and has a wide network of contacts that was valuable in our home search. He was able to provide great advice as we considered options and offers to make. He has been reliable, responsive and quick which ultimately helped us identify what features were most important to us and also to win a bid within a few weeks of working with him. Thank you Brian!

      - Gena Goh, Redmond WA
    • Brian and his team are the best! The process of selling my condo and buying a new place has been incredibly smooth - and fun. Not only did my condo sell quickly, but I got to close and move into my new place early. Brian's market knowledge and insight have been invaluable, and I highly recommend him as your next Real Estate Broker! Love, love, love the new place and couldn't have done this without Brian, Amanda, and the rest of his team to help me through it all. Thanks so much!

      - Jacquiline Brinker, Edmonds WA
    • I needed to sell my rental property, which needed some TLC. I travel frequently, but wanted to get the house on the market as quickly as possible. Brian had the solution.He has a team of people that work with him get homes ready to sell. They do great work, are very competitive, and available when he needs them. Brian said he would oversee the scheduling of the project and provided excellent recommendations about what needed to be done to sell the property quickly. The house was fixed up and on the market 5 weeks after the renters vacated.The property sold three days after it listed.Brian did an absolutely fantastic job. I couldn't be happier!.

      - Jim Anderson, Auburn WA
    • Just sold my condo and Brian and Amanda were amazing! They were both super reaponsive and always available to answer my questions. I would highly recommend them for a quick and easy sale. I will use them again for sure!

      - Cassie Kerr, Everett WA
    • Brian was incredible to work with!We thought for sure we would be searching for months like the rest of our friends, but we were in escrow in a matter of weeks in the home of our dreams! He was extremely accommodating with our difficult work schedules, and between he & his assistant Amanda, were always able to work with our work and travel schedules. We had a pretty long list of expectations for our new home, and he somehow managed to check everything off the list, and within our price range! We certainly aren't planning on moving soon, but he'll be the first to know if we do! HIGHLY RECOMMEND Brian & team!

      - Marco Esquivel, Seattle WA
    • I just recently closed on my home and I couldn't have been happier with the process. Brian had the connections and knowledge necessary to negotiate our offer with the Listing Agent and we were lucky to have his help in this seller's market. He kept us informed throughout the entire process and was always there to answer any questions we had. He is a fantastic agent, a hard worker and someone I now consider a friend. I will be recommending him to anyone I hear about that needs help buying or selling a home.

      - Amanda Price, Monroe WA
    • "Brian is very knowledgeable about real estate in general and the Seattle area specifically. I believe his best asset is bringing people together and presenting/negotiating a deal that makes everyone happy. I already have and will continue to recommend Brian Harwood to anyone, from the first-time home buyer all the way to the most experienced real estate investor." I just closed 3 weeks ago on an almost impossible deal with Brian, purchasing at $45,000 BELOW asking price and in 30 DAYS! That price and that time frame in this crazy market is beyond incredible. Brian, let's go get another one!

      - Michelle Pieper, Lynnwood WA
    • My wife and I heard about Brian from a family friend who couldn't stop singing his praises. We worked with him to buy our first house and were really impressed by his professionalism and expertise. He took the time to make sure we understood the process and went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with our purchase, even after the sale was complete. The biggest impression I got from working with Brian is that real estate is more than just a job to him because he cares about the people he's helping; we couldn't have asked for better.

      - Brandon Werder, Everett WA
    • Brian came highly recommended by a friend who he had worked with in the past. He did not disappoint. He walked us through the process of purchasing our first home and made us feel comfortable and confident. He helped us to find a house within our price range that exceeded our expectations. He has been a wonderful resource following the purchase of our home for follow up repairs and updates. Highly recommend!

      - Angie Gille, Shoreline WA
    • Brian is phenomenal at what he does, and offers outstanding care, service, and value as a real estate agent. We had a fairly complex home selling process that required a good bit of work on our house prior to listing it for sale. He helped us think through all of the essential elements we needed to address in our home to get the most value out of it at the time of selling such as updating paint, refreshing the look of our kitchen a bit, etc -- all with the perspective of doing things that would be cost effective and deliver value to the new buyers, while also taking into account the budget we had to put toward the pre-listing projects. He offered excellent advice along the way and really helped us make good decisions on where to put our time and money as we prepped the house. Between that home-prep process, and the incredible people he includes in his services to help stage the house for sale, clean up the yard, take stunning photos and 3D walk-through images for prospective buyers, etc -- you are definitely going to get top dollar for your home when you work with Brian! We also worked with Brian on purchasing our new home as well, and it was the same kind of seamless service, availability, and care. He is very skilled at what he does, extremely knowledgeable, and will work tirelessly to help you reach your home selling/buying needs.

      - Jeanette White, Seattle WA
    • I have worked with Brian over the last 3 years to buy 2 houses, buy 1 condo and sell 2 houses. He is extremely thorough, professional, knowledgeable and easy to work with. He always gives his honest opinion on how to get top dollar when selling and has the network connections to negotiate the best deal when buying. I have recommended Brian to friends and family and they have all be very pleased with the results.Brian also has the network of professionals to complete anything that need to be done to prepare a house to get top dollar, such as staging, cleaning, painting, remodeling kitchen or bath. Brian includes free services such as cleaning, landscaping, etc. which are greatly appreciated when selling. He even had his cleaners come over to a new house we bought and had his team deep clean before we moved in.His assistant is always on top of things, with status updates every Friday, and attention to detail to keep things on track.I will use Brian again when my daughter sells her condo in the spring. I cannot recommend him highly enough, as I am now spoiled as to what to expect from a Real Estate Broker!

      - Kimmarie Anderson, Kirkland WA
    • We decided to sell our home and after 'interviewing' a few realtors, Brian Harwood rose to the top. The entire process was a wonderful experience! We were so impressed with the way Brian handled EVERYTHING that needed to be done including small repairs and other things he did to get us top dollar for our home. His great support staff Amanda kept us informed of everything going on and kept us up to date with a calendar. We can't say "Thank You" enough to this team and have already recommended Brian to several people. Thanks Brian and Amanda!

      - Mary Pearia, Bothell WA
    • When I first met Brian he was presenting a class for first-time buyers. He walked with me through the search and purchase of my first home. Even after my purchase the friendship continued and it was wonderful to have someone to bounce questions off of. When, after only three years, a job change required me to move across the country Brian was the first one I called. He and his team helped make what needed to be a quick transition a very smooth one. I highly recommend Brian Harwood. His attention to detail and care for the client make buying and selling a home an adventure!

      - Tammie Stevens, Bothell WA
    • Seattle is a unique city with homes on the market less than a week and offers tens to hundreds of thousands over asking. For any homebuyer, entering this market is hard. But, for first time home buyers, it is especially daunting. My husband and I had been looking for our first home 2+ years with two unsuccessful offers. We had almost given up hope but a friend recommended Brian Harwood at Windermere.Working with Brian was peaceful and exciting. He started by getting to know us as a couple and then moved on to understanding our home interests, needs, and price range. He was never pushy and made sure we knew all of our options: comparable homes, offer structures, loan types, contract nuances. Brian was always positive and would take the time to explain any question.Out of 5 offers we had the winning bid! My husband and I are forever grateful for the hard work Brian and his Windermere team accomplished to help us to establish our first home! The entire process from end to end was joyful and seamless. Brian personally went above and beyond by sending a cleaning crew to spruce up our home before we moved in! Wow.Brian continues to keep in touch and we know we have gained a friend! If you are looking for an agent in Seattle hopefully you are lucky enough to get the opportunity to work with Brian.Extra Extra: Three people in my husbands office have worked with Brian and ALL have closed homes with him. Thats an impressive batting average!Good luck!

      - Karen Hymes, Seattle WA
    • We recently sold our home with the help of Brian. The experience was for us a walk in the park. Brian was very professional. He is a pay attention to detail kind of guy. The first thing he asked us was what our expectations of a Realtor were. We told him honesty was #1. And that was exactly what we got. We totally trusted him to have our best interest in mind. Selling our house was a great experience and Brian and his team was responsible for that.

      - Danny Lindstrom, Kirkland WA
    • Brian is an exceptional and reliable agent. He walked me through buying my first condo with patience, was available at all hours of the day, and went the extra mile with any follow-up questions I had about units wasn't sure about. He even took time during Memorial Day weekend to look into an issue with my closing, and resolved it successfully. I highly recommend him, especially for first time buyers.

      - Gregg Busch, Kenmore WA
    • It has been a great experience work with Brian and Amanda, they are a excellent and professional team. Brian's polite and easy way personality makes you fell comfortable and confident that combined with his deep knowledge in the property market ends in a perfect person to find the perfect property you want. With them you will always feel you are in good hands and everything its going to be all right. We really recommend them.

      - Jessica Martinez, Redmond WA
    • As a first-time home-buyer, with a limited budget, I was initially concerned I may not receive a high level of service. Brian quickly made it clear this was not the case. He was absolutely fantastic to work with - friendly, helpful, flexible, and very knowledgeable. His experience and guidance was crucial in locating the perfect home. Brian was quick to respond, and always available to answer questions or address concerns. Most importantly, Brian's "outside-the-box" thinking and willingness to go the extra mile helped me find and close on a home before it was even publicly listed. I was able to save time and money by avoiding the competition of multiple bidders. I strongly recommend Brian as an invaluable resource and professional real estate advisor.

      - Patrick Butler, Mountlake Terrace WA
    • Brian and Amanda were fantastic to work with. We didnt know if the time was right for us to buy or not and Brian was very patient with us walking through the decision to buy and then made sure that we made an educated decision on our purchase. We have now both sold and purchased a home with Brians representation and he also helped my parents sell their home. I would recommend Brian to anyone who needs an agent for either buying or selling. Amanda did a fantastic job of keeping the process smooth and ensuring we had the information we needed in a timely manner. Thank you both!
