Tell us about your experience with Michael & Leilani West

    • When we decided to move to a smaller retirement home, we selected Mike and Leilani West as our broker-agents. We knew we would need the combination of knowledge, skill and experience to meet our needs in the prevailing Mukilteo real estate market. Our home was a Sound view property in the Olympic Terrace area of our town.From our first contact with Mike and Leilani, we knew this was the team we needed to guide us through the many intricacies that are commonly encountered during the real estate transaction processes. They proceeded to develop a targeted, comprehensive, marketing plan. As a result, we had a superior marketing package to use that resulted in a full price offer in just 4 Days! This step is critical to a successful sale outcome. In our case, this package proved to be the key for our successful sale and subsequent move.We also selected Mike and Leilani to represent us in the purchase of our new home here in Mukilteo that also happened to be listed by Mike & Lani. This decision proved to be very beneficial to us as it provided us with a seamless transaction sequence.As we progressed through our sale-purchase activities, Mike and Lani took exceptional care to understand our requirements and desires. From the time of our first meeting they remained very responsive and were always readily available to address our concerns.Mike and Lani have a great deal of experience with real estate sales transactions in the Mukilteo area. They have remained the top Mukilteo real estate sales team for several years. They were exceptionally skilled at navigating through the many variable options, obstacles and potential delays we encountered. We found them to be very creative and forward thinking throughout our sales and purchase. Again, these talents proved to be a great benefit to us.During our careers, we have moved several times. Without a doubt, we find Michael and Leilani to be the best broker-agents we have ever had the opportunity and pleasure to work with. We highly recommend them to any persons interested in buying and/or selling their home.Steve and June ThomasMukilteo

    • My wife and I could not be happier with the outstanding service provided by Mike and Leilani West! As so often happens, we found a house we liked before having our existing home ready to list. We were nervous and uncertain about making an offer on a new house knowing that there would be at least a month delay before listing our present home. Their guidance was so reassuring and helpful that we took the plunge, and I am writing this review from that new house. Mike and Lani helped us through the ups and downs of the process, and their expertise and experience had us feeling very secure throughout with the knowledge that we were in very good hands! One could write pages and pages about what sets Mike and Lani apart from other realtors, but I will try to mention just a handful of the qualities that really hit home with us.1.Mike and Lani are pure professionals! They have a very successful strategy that works. They will promote your house in a first class, comprehensive manner. They also understand the position of the home seller/buyer, and will ALWAYS put their clients first. They will honestly voice concerns, or make recommendations, but leave all final decisions to you. They truly work hard to earn you the best price, and will NOT put their interests ahead of your own.2.They are excellent communicators. They are very easy and pleasant to talk with, and always appear relaxed and engaged. You are kept well informed with how things are progressing, and even receive feedback from prospective buyers on what they liked or didnt like about your home.3.Their names carry clout. They have excellent reputations, and are well respected in the community and in the profession. 4.Lastly, I have made such great use of their moving truck over the last couple months that it bears mentioning. Their moving truck is readily available for clients use, and we have used it on a number of occasions now. As a person familiar with the pain of U-Haul transactions, the time and money saved by this perk is a godsend!So, in closing, I would like to mention that we have not a single criticism or complaint about Mike or Lani West, and the service they provided us. They were a reliable as the sun rising each morning. We will gladly recommend them to anyone we meet who is searching for a realtor.Bruce and Jen Wietharn, One Club House LaneMukilteo

    • To whom it may concern,We just sold our house in Bothell with the help of Mike and Lani. We got multiple offer after three days of listing, closed the transaction smoothly in a month.We felt if we had not have Mike and Lani as the agent, we would not be able to sell the house at such a satisfactory price and without much difficulty and headache. Experts said, when selling a home, listing at the right price is 90% of the sale, and in our case, it's definitely true. Because of Mike and Lani's strong knowledge of the market, and thorough market analysis, the house was listed at just the right price to attract a lot of potential buyers. We feel Mike's market analysis was systematic, scientific and supported by various statistics. He researched the market from different perspective, and tracked the market trend, collected various real estate data, so when they presented their market analysis to us, we had no doubt that they would sell our house with the right price.Besides their strong knowledge of the real estate market, they also have very strong internet presentation. Their listings get pushed beyond the usual real estate websites, the photos of the house and the layout of the flyer for the listing look clear and nice, attractive to web viewers. For each listing, Lani would create a individual website for better presentation of the property. In the world of internet, their internet savvy make them stand out as stronger real estate agents.The results, we got multiple offers within days of listing our home and received more than listing price.Mike's experience in general construction was very valuable to us. After home inspection, our buyer had requested quite a few repair, Mike and Lani not only provided information of various repair services, but even paid for some of the repair. They are incredible!Overall, we think Mike and Lani are outstanding listing agent. We would recommend them to our friends and family, and use them again.Thanks!David & Zhen BrumleyPaloma

    • We were very fortunate to have Mike and Lani represent us with the sale of our Mukilteo home in One Club House Lane, after an entire unsuccessful year with another realtor. They themselves, had shown our home a couple of times, and they were always together, and impressed us as a very competent and caring duo.Sitting down with us, and going over a very thorough market analysis and marketing plan for selling our home, with a few changes to the house, such as some paint and a few staging ideas, they made us completely comfortable that it would sell immediately. It did. Their strategic approach to the whole matter, and their ability to "see" just exactly what needed to be different, was refreshing and reassuring. So thank you very much Mike and Lani!Deb and Don Peterson ~One Club House Lane

    • January 2016I have worked in the real estate, mortgage, banking, and escrow industry for over 30 years and picked Mike and Lani West for our personal real estate needs. They both listed and sold our Snohomish home on acreage and we purchased our new home through them. They honestly are the very best and here are the reasons why: They are professional in every aspect. We were so proud to have them represent us. They were always right there for our every need, concern or question. They priced our home perfect! That can be a challenge and because of their knowledge of the market and hours of research, came up with the price that sold our home quickly. The home we purchased was in a desirable neighborhood that made it challenging to get into. They helped us make the right offer so we ended up with our home we are in now. We were happy with the price we got on our sale and our purchase. In marketing our home, the flyer was beautiful. They had a professional photographer who captured the essence of what we had enjoyed so much about owning our home. They again showed their professionalism in every detail. They outline every aspect so you know what to expect. They schedule and meet with you all along the way. You are never left to wonder what is next or feel abandoned in the process as I hear from other people who have bought and sold homes with other brokers. You will not be disappointed or have any regrets if you work with Mike and Lani West. They are an amazing couple and will work so hard for you. I know you'll be happy.Bob & Kim Stewart

    • 10-17-2015I used Michael and Leilani West to sell my Mukilteo home and they were outstanding. Before choosing a real estate agent, I conducted a lot of research to see who would be the best choice based on the work they put into selling the property and how they promote their listings. Michael and Leilani stood out as the very best our area has to offer: their visibility was excellent; it was easy to find listings on their site, their social media presence was strong, and it was obvious that they put a lot of work into their listings. During our initial meetings, they provided objective data regarding how many homes they sell, how long their listings typically stay on the market, and lots of information on comps in the area. They spent hours answering questions, providing a clear plan for preparing my home to be sold. When I saw the listing, I was absolutely impressed with the high quality of the materials. Everything looked amazing and my home sold within a day, for asking price. There were some minor inspection items to attend to before the sale was finalized and their many connections were much appreciated. They recommended quality subcontractors to perform the work, removing yet another stressful item from the sale process. They also recommended an excellent finance agent to assist with the closing and walked me through every step of the closing process. It couldn't have been a more pleasant experience. Michael and Leilani are true professionals, knowledgeable, informative, responsive and patient. Their genuine, kind and caring approach made a difficult and daunting process incredibly easy and I always felt comfortable that they had my best interests at heart. I highly recommend them to anyone considering buying or selling a home! Cece Hickman Discovery Crest

    • After another broker tried unsuccessfully to find a home in Bothell that met our needs, we were fortunate to find Lani and Mike through their website. They listened carefully to our needs and preferences, worked closely with us to develop a list of likely properties, and in less than a week found exactly what we were looking for. They represented us in the negotiations and were successful in putting together a deal far better than we had hoped for. A few months later the housing market was dismal, prices were falling and nothing was selling and I accepted a new position out of state. We assumed that the house would be on the market for many months, but we called Lani and Mike and left the house in there hands. Three weeks later, despite many other house on the market in our neighborhood, they presented us with an offer very near our asking price.Weve owned six homes over the years and worked with many brokers in buying and selling them. Never have we encountered anyone who we would recommend more highly than we do Lani and Mike.DaveDavid R. Odiorne, MS, DC

    • Mike and Lani set the standard for professionalism, integrity, and honesty for realtors. Besides being one of the most knowledgeable, hardest working and tenacious realtors we know,they are also extremely personable, patient, and communicative. This combination makes them a delight to work with, and we developed a strong sense of trust that Mike and Lani were always putting our best interests first, often ahead of theirs.We first met Mike and Lani at an open house they were hosting. We immediately felt at ease with their friendly, no pressure manner, and placed them at the top of the list of agents we would want to work with when we decided to list our house. When that time came, we met with them and were very impressed by their knowledge of the Mukilteo market. They offered to do a market analysis for us, and we were blown away with the extensive report they delivered back to us, so we decided to list with them. We thought they would do a great job of exposing our house to the market, but Mike and Lani's marketing strategy was totally awe-inspiring, with full-color, professionally photographed flyers, and scanable links to our on-line listings. We felt we couldn't be in better hands. Throughout the process, they both gave us great advice on things we could do to make our house more marketable, including updates as well as interior painting colors. Mike even brought over a sample of the paint he recommended! They also went the extra mile to recommend quality contractors they trusted, to do updates in our kitchen and bathrooms. Overall the recommendations made the house more attractive, and we were able to get top dollar for it! We also kept Mike and Lani to represent us when we purchased our new house, in Auburn. Even though it was far our of their normal territory, they were always available to meet with us there to work with with the builder and their agent.One other very important factor set Mike and Lani apart for us. Our two best offers came from overseas buyers. This introduced a number of new and unique challenges in trying to negotiate and close a sale. Mike and Lani were exceptional in dealing with the intricacies and sensitivities of these situations, as well s keeping us informed and calm when things got complicated.Throughout the past three years we have worked with Mike and Lani, we have forged a strong bond based on trust and confidence in their ability to do absolutely the best job possible in representing us in selling or buying a house. They truly care about the people they work with, and they will be the only people we will contact when it is time for our next house. They are simply the BEST.Dayne and Laurie Gardner12582 61st Ave W Mukilteo
