Sandra Hines

    • Sandra is not only a wonderful person but also a patient, instinctive and knowledgeable agent. We we struggling to find a house that met our criteria and expectations in the crazy SEATTLE market. Sandra insisted (sweetly) that we visit a home that we had discounted as an option. Low and behold, it was perfect for our family and the 150% best house we had seen in our extensive 5 month search! She guided us through what ended up being a surprisingly smooth and fast close. We are incredibly appreciative for her support throughthe process and she will be our first guest in the new home!

    • There are not enough superlatives to describe how delighted we were with the job Sandra did as our selling agent. Not only is she super savvy, friendly, and whip-smart, but she handles all aspects of the project with calm and grace. One aspect of her services that we particularly appreciated was the ability of her staging team to make our home show ready even while we occupied it. We were astounded by their creative abilities to work with our own furniture and design pieces, supplementing with items of their own that had been carefully curated to bring out the best of the spaces. Sandra went above and beyond to ensure that all aspects of the process were stress-free and seamless. Her depth of expertise in our market was evident every step of the way. We thank our lucky stars that we chose her!

    • Sandra was an amazing help when I needed to sell an older home I had recently inherited in West Seattle. She made wonderful suggestions to make the home more marketable and arranged for all the work on my approval. Then she staged the home beautifully. Sandra was so professional, knowledgeable and kind to deal with. She went out of her way to meet our every need as out of state sellers. I would give her 10 stars!!!

      - Jean Udell
    • Sandra and her team do it all. Sandra walked through our home with a keen eye, knowing how to best use our budget for top dollar changes and then, her team made those changes happen painting, landscaping, floors, cleaning, lighting, fixtures, plumbing. Sandra has the trust of local contractors so theres no need to call, wait and schedule. Sandras team made all appointments happen, so we could focus on moving, not selling. Staging, photos, videos all included. We felt like we were on HGTV home network show. In the end our home sold for $150K above what we expected. Sandra is solid. Shes honest, professional, and kind. We had the best possible experience.

      - Catherine Wilson
    • Sandra is absolutely the best. She has incredible local knowledge, extensive professional experience and is a pleasure to work with. I received an offer on my townhouse within 4 days of listing, sold for the price I wanted, and she made the entire experience seem easy. I loved her staging team as well.

    • We moved to the Seattle area from out of state. Sandra was great to work with in helping us narrow down our search to the neighborhoods we would love. She seems to have an instinct for what her client wants and guided us to homes we loved. When we found "the one" her exceptional skills and experience were applied to an offer that was accepted quickly and enthusiastically. Working with Sandra felt like working with a friend that had your back. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to buy real estate. Whether a new home buyer or seasoned veteran of the real estate market.

      - Katie Pheneger
    • Sandra is a top-notch real estate professional! We used Sandra's services to buy a new house and sell our old house. She is personable and a go-getter who is well-connected and very adept at closing deals. Sandra has a strong team who made our house look its best for the sale closing for way more than we thought possible! We would highly recommend Sandra for all your real estate needs.

      - Tina Urso
    • We worked with Sandra THREE TIMES in one year - for the sale of a house in Beacon Hill, the purchase of a condo in downtown Seattle, and the sale of another condo in South Lake Union. In all three scenarios, Sandra exceeded our expectations - both financially and from a level of service. We are both working professionals with very little free time - and we also live outside the city part-time, which could have made the process extremely burdensome. Sandra made things SO EASY. She told us where to invest (and where NOT to invest) to maximize resell potential and ROI, put us in contact with really great contractors who had favorable pricing, and her assistants are AMAZING - truly they go above and beyond. We are now two homes "lighter" and living in our dream condo - it's nice to be settled, but we are almost sad to be out of the real estate game for awhile.... we miss Sandra!!

      - Mia Steere
    • Sandra had been part of our Seattle journey start to finish. We had found her while living in Texas so my husband flew out to meet her. She and her assistant at the time graciously took us all around to see different neighborhoods to get a feel for the area. It was a very much appreciated gesture and helped us feel very welcome. We decided not to buy for a year or so but when we did she was our first choice for a realtor. She helped us find the perfect home for our growing family. Fast forward 4 years later we had decided to move back to our home state. We knew we could trust Sandra to help us sell our house. We couldn't recommend a more personable, professional and dedicated realtor for those looking to buy or sell.

      - Stephanie Kelly
    • I was the personal representative of an estate during the second wave of COVID. Sandra was extremely responsive and organized, including using her team to ensure everything was planned and executed on schedule. She also has a vested interest in West Seattle, where she is both a broker and resident. I highly recommend Sandra and her team!

      - Paul A. Barrera
    • We worked with Sandra and her team to buy our first house on the east side. Right from our first with Sandra, she guided us with details about the home buying process. She was extremely patient and understood the client needs well. What makes Working with Sandra unique 1) is that she points out fine details which sometimes may not even strike to you as a buyer 2) understanding and carefully customizing every offer we made to increase the chance of winning in this hot market. We recommend working with Sandra and her team. Thank you!

      - Saleha Pathan
    • Sandra was recommended to us by a friend. We were trying to get an offer in quickly on a house in West Seattle, and Sandra was right on top of it. She quickly got our offer in and it was accepted. Then Sandra navigated us through the process of filling out all the forms, and even getting some concessions from the inspection process. Sandra had great referrals on a home inspector and several contractors who helped us along the way. She also had a great referral on financing through a local business in West Seattle. Sandra and her assistant Jill were always available for us, meeting us several times at the home during the purchase process. I would highly recommend Sandra, Jill and all of her associates if you are looking to purchase a home in West Seattle.

      - Julie Phares
    • Sandra was wonderful to work with! We are first time home buyers and knew next-to-nothing about the process. After our first meeting with them, we felt much more prepared. Despite a tough market, Sandra helped us to be competitive and eventually find our new home. She was always willing to show us new listings and take second looks at houses we were interested in, and worked with our chaotic schedule. Sandra had a keen eye for both pros and cons of homes, and took into consideration our personal preferences when making recommendations.All in all, we would recommend Sandra (and her associate Jill) without reservation. She made a stressful and sometimes scary process much easier.

      - Jeremiah Alexander & Katie Luxa
    • What can I say about Sandra that could come close to describing the incredible level of service she provided? As an out of town seller it could have been very stressful to try to manage the process but Sandra was there taking care of everything from staging my home to handling the sale of the furniture I was unable to take with me. She and her assistant Jill came up with the perfect marketing plan for my property - taking into account the neighborhood and demographic to bring in a a high volume of buyers (yes, even in a seller's market, having a realtor who is willing to take the time to personally market your property is critical). Because of this approach, I was presented with 4 great offers in less than 5 days and I was able to secure a price far beyond my expectations. Sandra really rose to the occasion when, only days before closing the fully finished basement sprung a leak. She pulled together a team and got everything repaired before closing. After suffering a completely different experience during the process of purchasing this home, and being underrepresented in every aspect of the transaction, I will be forever grateful that I met Sandra and Jill when I was ready to sell. They took all the stress off my plate and served in its place, a true sense of peace knowing that everything was going to be done with integrity and a great sense of humor. I couldn't recommend them more highly.

    • Sandra was great and helped sell our townhouse in the Highland Park neighborhood in West Seattle in lest than a week. Even though our house wasn't as nice as some of the other properties I'd seen she had sold she made us feel like we were the most important clients she had. You could tell she busted her butt for us. She is kind, funny, quick to respond. You can tell she really knows her stuff. She had a great plan of action when we were ready to go on the market, priced our house just right, and it sold for more than we asked.

      - Leija Goodman
    • When we planned to buy a new home in 2015, there was no hesitation about who we would call. Sandra had helped us purchase a home in 2009, and her skill in that transaction had already made us raving fans. We quickly discovered that having an experienced and creative agent like Sandra in a hot market is key. When we looked seriously at one home that was getting a lot of attention, she devised a strategy that was both innovative and effective. She also was patient and understanding when we shifted away from our initial geographic focus and looked at an island home. Even though she had already invested a lot of time for an in-city search, she didn't hesitate to quickly recommend a very competent on-island agent who she trusts because she felt someone with deep knowledge of the island would best represent us. Because of how well she took care of us, we of course asked her to list our old home for sale. It was the first time we had sold a house, and she not only walked us through all of the steps, but staged it and marketed it beautifully, and listed it for a price that resulted in multiple offers and a positive outcome for everyone involved. The purchase and sale this last year are likely the biggest financial transactions of our lives. We are so fortunate to have had Sandra assisting us each step of the way.

    • We had the best possible experience using Sandra Hines as the agent to sell our home in Shorewood on the Sound! Sandra's knowledge, positive personality and constructive feedback at our initial consultation won us over! She had really done her homework! Sandra also offered free staging, which we didn't even know we needed, but it ended being such a life saver! After living in, and loving our home of more than 15 years, there were many tears and fears in the prospect of selling - Sandra really helped through that process as well. Her fresh strategies , market knowledge and local market analysis really helped her "nail" the asking price - making the whole process less stressful. We feel very blessed to have found her and were very happy with the entire experience!

      - Brett & Jodi Morris
    • Sandra was referred to us by a couple sets of friends. When I first reached out to her, she responded back to me immediately and arranged for a time for us to meet up and discuss buying a home.From the get go, I knew Sandra knew her stuff and she was very attentive to our wants and needs. She stuck with us over a 5 month period in which the market was soaring and extremely competitive. We ultimately found our new home and have been extremely happy. Sandra is a true professional. She never tried to push us into any purchase. She's very educated on what's happening in the market and keeping up to date on trends she identifies. She's also extremely focused and makes her clients her priority throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Sandra to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. I also plan to work with Sandra again in the future one any of my real estate needs and wouldn't even consider going to anyone else. She's the best!
