More about Brian Hayter

There is a lot that goes into being an exceptional agent. Great listing agents will do much more than put a sign in the yard and posting your house on the MLS, and a strong buyer's agent certainly provides more value than simply opening doors, showing homes and writing offers. My approach when dealing with my clients has always been comprehensive and extremely thorough. My goal is not only to make each experience as seamless and stress-free as possible for you, but also to become your trusted real estate advisor for life. Whether you're buying or selling, I have developed and implemented processes that will help set clear expectations up front on what to expect along the way when working with me. Extensive research on market conditions and individual homes allows me to negotiate on your behalf from a position of strength. My clients have complete access to me and are encouraged to ...

Brian Hayter

    • I wasn't finding many houses out there in the beginning, but Brian persevered and helped find me the perfect house! He was my go to person for selling and buying my house.

      - Kaila Kemmis
    • Brian was very responsive to our viewing schedules and would take time to show us a home when we would call him with only an 1 hour or less notice. I am very appreciative to have an agent like him and would recommend him to others. I glad he has the patients to deal with the amount of house that we looked at and did not like until we found the one we liked.

      - Jared Lohr
    • Brian went above and beyond in our home purchase. He seeked out information and provided answers within the day if he didn't know the answer right away. He is very honest and his knowledge in the business definitely helped us be aggressive in our asking price and ultimately the purchase of our home. I would highly recommend him to anyone

      - Joey Kenney
    • Brian recently assisted my wife and I with a 1031 exchange transaction. I inherited a property in south Seattle which fell in disrepair and had some squatters living in it for some time. Therefore, we were eager to sell and use the proceeds for a rental property closer to where we lived in south Snohomish County. Brian listed the property and we received multiple offers, ended up selling for $140K over list price after a 10-day review period. He also assisted us in setting up the 1031 exchange, facilitated the 1031 exchange with the 1031 processor and we were able to close on a new construction property in the Lake Serene area approximately 45-days after closing on the sale of the south Seattle property. Brian was excellent to work with and responded to emails and texts very quickly. If we ever had a need to purchase or sell in the future, he would be on the top of our contact list. Thanks Brian for your assistance the last few months, much appreciated

      - Peter Hu
    • Brian is the best real estate agent Ive ever worked with. He was always on time, he performed in-depth market analysis and explained it in a way that was easy to digest, and he listened closely to our wants and needs and found us the perfect home. I will be recommending him to everyone I know who is buying or selling a home in th future. It truely was a first class experience

      - Mark Stanley
    • This was our second time working with Brian to sell our house and buy a new house. He was very attentive in understanding our needs, spent time researching the market in our area, and was always prompt in responding to our questions or concerns. We had a very tight timeline due to a new job and inflexible travel plans, but Brian was super efficient while still providing quality and attention that surpassed our expectations. Brian's guidance led us to the best possible outcome with multiple offers on our selling property, and also helped us use sound decision making on the property we purchased. Although buying/selling property can be stressful, Brian was incredibly genuine and his expertise made the entire process smooth and very successful!

      - Charles and Jaspreet Doan
    • My wife and I worked with Brian to sell our home and really cant say enough good things about him. He is knowledgeable, approachable, personable, extremely patient, and incredibly generous with his time (including evenings, and weekends). He answered every question, explained all the forms and every part of the process clearly and thoroughly. Selling a home poses challenges, but working with Brian made it as painless and straightforward as possible. We highly recommend him

      - Tony and Claire Clark
    • If anyone out there is looking for a "FANTASTIC" real estate agent, we highly recommend Brian Hayter!! Before we found Brian my husband and I looked at, at least 3 dozen homes if not more. Brian is a real find, he saved my highly frustrated Husband from loosing it... We asked him to come out to the home we were renting so he could see what we were looking for, and we had some difficult requests. Brian did come to our home we were renting, and he spent some quality time sitting and talking with us. Brian was there for us every step of the way, even through our frustration. Because like I said we had some difficult requests. We could "always" reach Brian by phone, text or e-mail. Buying a home can be a stressful ordeal, and Brian took on all the stress for us! (literally) Brian found a home that had been listed for only 45 minutes. So he sent an e-mail since is was late in the evening on a weekday, that he knew had all our needs met. I just happen to look at my e-mails before going to bed. So we called him, and of course he answered right away. Brian showed us this home at 8:30 at night. It was perfect for us, and we fell in love with it!! We went to Brian's office to put in an offer, he was there with us until 11:30. We couldn't believe he would do this for us so late in the evening, like I said he is "FANTASTIC" He literally walked us through everything, and explained, and answered all of our questions so we could understand. Every step of the way, he made this easy for us. Brian cared about us, and what we were looking for. He didn't just want to make a quick sale, he wanted to help us find the perfect place to call home, and he did just that. Brian is not just a real estate agent, he is a real person with a caring heart who truly cares...

      - Brett and Justine Webber
    • Brian's guidance and expertise in preparation of the home for photography and marketing materials was masterful. We ended up selling the home for the price we were looking for in only three days after the listing hit MLS. We cannot thank Brian enough for efforts and we are definitely recommending him to anyone considering buying or selling a home in the greater Seattle area.

      - Bruce and Cyndi Christofferson
    • Brian Hayter is basically the most awesome real estate agent there is. He gets it done and makes it a great process. This is silly, but working with him makes me sad we don't have more houses to buy and sell. It's that smooth and even enjoyable doing business with him. Brian knows the market back to front and has great tips, experience, and instincts. He helped us buy a house that fit our needs more perfectly than we could imagine. He tirelessly toured with us, gave us great input/opinions, helped us pre-inspect so there were no surprises, and didn't let us settle for less. We "right-sized" and bought a newer, nicer, but smaller house in a better area for us. Brian also helped us fix up and sell our older larger house in Bothell for just the amount we were looking for, in just the time frame we were looking for. Everything couldn't have gone smoother, and it was mainly because he set us up for success. Brian dots all the i's, crosses all the t's, made sure our house looked great for a reasonable price. He coordinated deep cleaning, staging, great photos, a walk through video, an professional description on the listing. Along the way, he had straight forward and honest discussions with us, cheered us on and encouraged us, pushed us through to the end when we were getting tired, and then celebrated with us. He has become a close personal friend though this process, and we could not have been blessed by a better person or expert along the way. Interestingly enough, we had a buying agent in mind already, but kept running into Brian at showings. He was pretty much the agent on several of our favorite showings. Now that I know him, I think it's because of how meticulously he helps you set your house up to be the best it can be for potential buyers. Anyone who works with Brian has the best man for the job in their corner. Anyone who chooses him is one smart cookie. I never knew this process could be so pleasant. He was always reachable a phone call or text away when we had questions or problems. He called us and kept us in the loop constantly. We couldn't be happier with our new home, and are still fixing it up. Brian still stays in touch with us to see how it's going every now and then. He simply is the best.

      - Steven and Ada Naramor
    • We met Brian at an Open House when we had just started looking for our first home. He was easy to talk to and we felt no pressure to sign on with him as our realtor (but we are so glad we did!). Brian did a thorough job walking us through the process of finding and putting an offer together prior to visiting any houses together. He was willing to work with our schedules, always responded to our questions in a timely fashion and was a great advocate for us as buyers. He was great about giving us options for service providers (inspections, sewer scoping, etc.) and even arranging times for them to stop by. Furthermore, he knows how to put together a competitive offer. Brian is a great realtor!

      - Joel and Heather Orsen
    • Brian did a great job with the sale of my condo. He went out of his way to get some fine details taken care of and I appreciated that! It went very smoothly and he is very knowledgeable, helpful and kind.

      - Sapphire Sun Hort
    • Brian was fantastic! He was very knowledgable and understanding of my needs. I set goals to him and he met them all. He was sways on top of giving me updated on the progress of the sale of my house. From the beginning to the end. Polite and courteous. Must use for selling or buying your home! Thanks again Brian!

      - Zack Kreitle
    • Brian was great. He has great knowledge of the real-estate market in the Seattle region. It was a challenging market but Brian was able to work with me and other professionals in a highly effective way. Responsiveness and a positive attitude was a huge part of the great experience I had working with Brian on my home purchase. Highly recommended!!

      - Raj Katru
    • Brian worked with us for six months prior to the sale, keeping us advised of the market, and giving us tips for getting ready to sell. He was very patient in explaining the process to us. At the same time, he was never over-bearing or pushy with us. The sales process concluded very well for all parties involved.

      - Don Reynoldson
    • Brian was a true professional throughout the transaction. Brian developed a comprehensive marketing strategy that resulted in a large increase over our asking price. Brian handled every detail from getting the house ready to sell to all the closing documents. Brian was exceptionally responsive to our calls and meetings which gave us a great feeling of confidence. I would highly recommend Brian to list your home for sale!

      - Dan Murnan
    • As first time home buyers in an incredibly competitive market we were very nervous going in to the home buying process about being able to find a home in the timeline and price range that we needed. Brian was very patient and knowledgeable and quickly put us at ease. We never felt like we were wasting his time with all of the questions that we had. Once we found the home we wanted to put an offer in on, Brian expertly walked us through the process and helped us to write a competitive offer that won out over 3 others! He has been so very helpful, responsive, professional, patient, and supportive in this process. Even going above and beyond and helping us with questions we had after we closed on the house. I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a stellar real estate agent.

      - Derek and Amanda Smith
    • Brian was always available for questions that I might have. If I didn't call with questions, he would contact me to be sure everything was going smoothly for me.

      - Ruth Wilson
    • We lived many years in the Seattle area, and met Brian and his family through St Mary Magdalen school. We moved away from Washington State several years ago, and now living in North Carolina. Since we still have 2 of our children in the Seattle area, and another planning to return to the area, we decided to buy a small home that we could live in when we visit for extended periods of time. Our son put us in touch with Brian and he did a terrific job! We purchased our townhouse sight un seen, but I have complete confidence that we got a spectacular place! Brian also referred us to Alycia Edmonds, at First Security Bank to obtain our mortgage, and that transaction was executed seamlessly! We have purchased and sold many homes in our lifetime, but this purchase through Brian was by far the easiest and most pleasant experience we have ever encountered! I am excited to see our new home next month!!! Marilee and Tom Koewler

    • Brian recently helped with the purchase of my home in Kent Washington. He did an outstanding job as my representative. His general knowledge of real estate was very helpful as we navigated from the beginning of the process to the end. He dealt with any issues extremely quickly and was very responsive whenever something needed attention. The best part about working with Brian is that he genuinely cares about his customers and is always willing to go the extra mile to help. Anyone who is looking for a realtor would be very lucky to have Brian Hayter on their side.

      - Jake Hanby
    • I was a first-time home buyer and Brian really went out of his way to make the process as easy as possible. He's very professional, personable and a great realtor. The best part about working with Brian is how responsive and organized he is. He kept me updated about how the process was going and gave me information as fast as possible. A very smooth experience and I'd gladly recommend Brian to any of my friends who are looking to buy or sell.

      - Taylor Hodges
    • I wanted to invest in Seattle real estate and did not know anything about the local market. Brian suggested some areas where I could look into based on my investment profile and we worked together to some up with a short list. He followed up regularly with me on new properties that came into the market and when I finalized one he was spot on getting me through with the process and paper work. I would recommend Brian to anyone looking for an Agent

      - Prasanna Gollapudi
    • Brian is awesome! We could not have had a better experience working with Brian. We'd been planning on relocating from southern California for a while and had been in contact with Brian leading up to finally pulling the trigger. We scheduled an appointment with Brian immediately after moving, but were exploring the area the weekend before our appointment and stumbled upon a house we loved that had hit the market that day. Brian arranged for us to look at it right away and helped us write a rock solid offer when we fell in love with it. It was obvious that he has tremendous knowledge and he provided great education on the different options we had to strengthen our offer, but did not pressure us at all when it came to making the decisions. There were multiple offers, but thanks to all the recommendations Brian made that helped us make a very strong offer with some unique perks, our offer was accepted! Throughout the process, we NEVER had to reach out to Brian for an update. He was constantly in communication with us, even when everything was in place and it was essentially the "waiting period, " he still touched base with us periodically and asked if we had any questions. He was amazing at facilitating the process and keeping us on track, without making us feel overwhelmed. This was not our first home purchase, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that this experience was actually not stressful at all. We were very relaxed during the process because we had complete confidence that Brian was keeping tabs on everything and would let us know if there was anything we needed to know about. All in all, we could not be happier. We are in LOVE with our new home and the ease of the purchase process was icing on the cake. We will DEFINITELY work with Brian again in the future! We've already recommended Brian to my parents and we will highly recommend him anyone we know that is looking to buy or sell real estate. Thank you, Brian!!

      - Kaley and Scott Penington
    • Brian was absolutely amazing in the buy/sell of our home. If it weren't for him, we wouldn't be in our new house. His industry knowledge, excellent communication between the sellers realtor, and superb negotiation skills were instrumental in securing our buy. Once we bought our house, we then turned around and sold our current house for top dollar in less than 3 days because of Brian. I would highly recommend him for the buy or sell of any house. He's amazing to work with. You want him on your team!

      - Matt and Brooklyn Biggerstaff
    • This was our second investment property purchase with Brian and he was better than the first transaction. We had some issues with the lender and he saw everything to the end seamlessly. Again, he only sent us relevant properties to our criteria thus expediting the offer and closing process. Nothing like closing in two weeks. Thanks again Brian!

      - Mark Loucks
    • Brian Hayter is an excellent realtor who helped us find an amazing home that fits our needs and desires! As we were first time home buyers, he was happy to walk us through the process. He's prompt with communication and gladly answered any questions we had. When the sellers posed an issue he kept our best interests and needs as top priority and helped to quickly resolve the problem. All of Brian's hard work made this process easy and stress-free for us. We love our home that he helped us find, but if we do decide to move to another home one day, we'll definitely be calling Brian again! Thank you, Brian! Ally & Evan

    • Brian is an outstanding real estate professional! From day one, as we began looking at homes in the highly volatile North Seattle market, he was always at our side helping us navigate the complexities of what is very much the sellers' market. Largely thanks to Brian tireless work, we were able to close in a very timely fashion. Amazingly, Brian did not disappear, but remained available to answer questions regarding schools, Internet providers, etc. Yes, our relationship was driven by the real estate, but we feel that we did not only buy a wonderful home, but also gained a great friend, someone who is caring, responsible, trustworthy, and fun!

      - Alex and Anfissa
    • Buying your first home can be a daunting, scary, and overwhelming task - especially in a chaotic market we live in here in the Seattle area. My wife and I were ready to buy our first to start our family and began our home search where everyone typically does; online. As we began looking for homes on several real estate websites, we soon felt lost in the sea of real estate jargon and dubious listing agents. We required professional help and Brian Hater provided us with the life preserver we so desperately needed. Brian brought a wealth of real estate knowledge and expertise about the current market conditions to make us feel comfortable with the substantial investment we were about to make. Instead of manually searching for homes on multiple websites, most of which were confusing and difficult to navigate, Brian would send us listings for sale every single day based on what we were looking for. He proved to us that he was a master of his craft and we trusted him with finding our dream home. Once we found and toured the home we ended up purchasing, Brian got to work on helping us close the property by communicating directly with the listing agent, mortgage lender, and the escrow company. Not only was he able to convince the listing agent/owner to fix a few major flaws with the home before the purchase, he was even able to do what I thought was feasibly impossible in this market: he negotiated the listing price DOWN by $6,000! I 100% recommend Brian Hater as your real estate agent. He's not only our agent, but a great longtime friend who made us feel comfortable throughout this process and taught us enough about real estate to feel like we are agent's ourselves! Thank you Brian Hayter!

    • I was more than extremely satisfied with the amount of attention and level of service I was provided by Brian. It felt like he was always available and always prompt with respect to any of my needs (even ones I didn't know I had!). It was clear his passion and dedication to his trade, and more importantly to his customer, were top-notch. I'm extremely grateful for his efforts and dedication, and highly recommend him to prospective buyers and sellers!

      - Joel Taylor
    • My husband and I met Brian at an open house in Shoreline when we were still pretty new to the housing market. His open and friendly manner put us at ease right away. Later that day we emailed him questions about a different house and we were both impressed with his quick response and the amount of information he gathered (we weren't even his clients yet!). As the search became more earnest Brian's work ethic and easygoing personality really shone through. He was thoughtful with his home recommendations and thorough in his searches. It was this thoroughness that opened the door to our new home! A house we had previously overlooked online was still on the market so he encouraged us to visit.... Just in case.... : ) If you are a first time home buyer who is nervous about the pressures of a competitive market then Brian Hayter is the man for you. He'll make the search fun and work hard for YOU. You can put any worries to rest with Brian Hayter on your side.

      - Donovan and Kirra Fisk
    • Brian was really helpful, kind and indeed very humble. During the process of us getting our first home, he has shown lots of patience and always arrive in a timely manner from one location to another. As tiring was the process, he has shown no frustration in helping us getting what we wanted, no place was far to drive to meet us. It was a great pleasure getting to know him andrammeh doing business with him. I highly recommend him as a great agent

      - Jennifer and Musa Bojang
    • Brian was an excellent agent. He always kept me up to date from the people who were stopping by to the enormous amount of paperwork that needed to be signed. He was thoughtful ,explained things well and was always available when I needed him. I would recommend him highly.

      - Barbara Rokicki Bartlett
    • Brian Hayter has been a friend of mine since I could barely tie my shoes. But that is not the reason why I chose him to sell my house. You want an agent that will work for you, and keeps your best interest in mind throughout the whole process and Brian does just that. Brian is very meticulous and catches every detail which is important dealing with the buying or selling of a home and how one screw up and ruin it all. He is young and hungry, holding open houses every weekend, and even when he was on vacation he still kept in constant contact and had the open houses covered. He is already hired to sell one of my parents rental houses now that my house officially closed. Def would recommend Brian to anyone looking to sell their home.

      - Ryan Kjolso
    • As a first time buyer, I couldn't be more pleased with the support and service I received from Brian. He was knowledgeable, thorough, and supportive throughout the process. Especially with how hot the Seattle market has been, he knew how to present a competitive offer without making me feel any pressure. He also provided plenty of great resources - lender recommendations, inspectors, etc - throughout the process. The process of buying a home can be very stressful but with an advocate like Brian on my side the process was smooth and I closed on my (perfect) first home.

      - Megan Gimmestad
    • I had just fired my original realtor and found Brian. He helped turned my bad experience into a fantastic one! He's motivated, enthusiastic, and believes in a lot of communication. Brian was able to put my house on the market and do an open house the very next day. A couple offers came out of the open house and it closed within 2 weeks! I will definitely recommend Brian to my friends and family buying or selling.

      - Kaila Kemmis
    • Brian was an absolute pleasure to work with. From our initial meeting through our closing date, Brian was professional, courteous, and always timely in response to help answer any questions. As first time house sellers, Brian helped us understand market trends, comps, and strategies to help sell our home at a competitive rate in just days! We would highly recommend Brian and the Windermere group for any real estate needs.

      - Nicole and Kevin Cooley
    • Brian made our home buying process a wonderful experience. He is very knowledgeable in all aspects associated to real estate and was always willing to go above and beyond to gather all information necessary for us to make our decisions throughout the process. Brian would update us on any new listings which met our criteria on a timely basis, and would always meet us at the listings which we wanted to view at a time which was convenient for us. He was always professional, and very punctual at all appointments/meetings. Once we found the home which we knew was the one we wanted to pursue, he promptly and accurately filled out our offer sheet and submitted it on a timely manner to ensure we would not miss a step. Once the offer was submitted, Brian worked very diligently with us and also the buyers agent to make sure that we were satisfied before accepting any counter offers. There really was no pressure throughout the whole process whatsoever from Brians end. He truly was looking out for OUR best interest. Once the offer was accepted, Brian went above and beyond through the close process to work with our loan officer and escrow agent to ensure that closing would fall on the date which both parties had mutually agreed upon. We were more than satisfied with Brian as our agent in buying our new home. We would recommend him to anyone as we can state by his work ethic that he will work hard for his clients and will put your interests and satisfaction above anything else.Thanks for your help Brian!Mick & Karen
