What Our Customers Say About Me

Richard M. Sep-19
“No negative feedback at all! Just wanted to take this opportunity to say how INCREDIBLE Gail Bean and her team (especially Jeff Cole) were throughout the entire process. They were somehow able to execute a 14-day close in nearly 8 days, due to their planning, organization, prompt communication, and wonderful training and guidance for us first-time home buyers. Our ability to close so quickly was the single most important factor in our ability to have our offer accepted on a competitive property in the crazy Seattle real estate market, and we will be eternally grateful to Gail and her team for helping us buy our dream home. Thank you!!!”

“Gail Bean did an excellent job of holding my hand, and guiding me through the entire home loan process. She is a dedicated professional.”
Tysha Carter
“We have worked with Gail twice now. The first time was a new construction townhome, and, most recently, the purchase of a single family home through an Estate (which made it a little more tricky as more parties were involved.) First, she has a depth of knowledge, understanding, and commitment that cannot compare. She has years of experience in the local market, on both personal and professional levels, which have helped her to cultivate a genuine compassion for those going through the home buying process. As first time buyers, she reassured us along the way, and, now, as more seasoned buyers, she cheered us on and was steady and extremely helpful as we navigated a more tricky purchase. She was also very mindful of the conflicts in our schedules that we have with five young children, and even arranged for closing to happen in our own home to make it less stressful and more comfortable for us. We truly appreciate Gail and her expertise, and have no hesitation in recommending her to any of our friends and colleagues. Thank you, Gail!”
Jacob Carter
“Gail was incredibly helpful and attentive during our home purchasing process. She was quick to answer questions, helped us navigate the fact I was starting a new job in the middle of the process, and supported us every step of the way. She exhibited professionalism and deep knowledge and I'm grateful she was on our team as we purchased a home in Seattle.”
Andy Mennella
“My wife and I just closed on our first house with Gail and Jeff. We asked hundreds of questions and they were always quick with their thoughtful, informative answers. It's an understatement to say that they know their stuff, and can explain it well. I recommend them to anybody who wants professional, intelligent, and kind people on their side. ”
Holly Hess
“Gail made the purchase of my first home happen quickly and efficiently. I was into a place within 3 weeks - 1 month of finding it, and much of that time was spent waiting on me to review details or the HOA to provide them. Very communicative, informative, and stands up for her client when she thinks some party has not done right by them. She is a valuable ally in a competitive market. I highly recommend working with Gail Bean.”
Melinda Issakov - Mrs
“Gail Bean recently helped us with purchasing a home in this crazy Seattle market. Gail was incredibly professional, knowledgable, focused, efficient and fast. I like to refer to her as ' my magic unicorn mortgage broker' as she has the ability to close on a loan in 2 weeks; in this market that can give you the edge you need to be the party who has their offer accepted. As we are not from the USA we had some hurdles to jump through in regards to getting our credit rating looking good, we spoke with Gail a year before we planned to buy and she was able to run a report which told us what we needed to do financially to be in the best shape once we were ready to buy. This knowledge was invaluable, and despite only have a 2 year financial history in this country, we had a great credit score once we started the mortgage process. Without Gail I don't think we would have know the small things needed to help us in this regard. Gail and her team also were wonderful in explaining how it all works, helping us understand the process and basically just doing all the hard 'scary' stuff behind the scenes. I can't recommend Gail enough, she was really great. 10 out of 10.”
