"Great skills in negotiating"
"In the fall of 1993 Grace worked with us to [buy] and close our first house. She had worked with us since the spring before, being patient and thorough throughout the process. We feel that she displayed great skills in negotiating with the realtors she encountered and was able to clearly communicate the language of real estate to us. We feel that Grace did an outstanding job of keeping our spirits up while coaching us in diplomacy when making our house wants and needs known. This experience of buying a house was awesome and Grace helped keep it in perspective for us. We will definitely continue to refer our friends and acquaintances to Grace."
~ Corey G. (Seattle)
"I received excellent service! Grace did a great job explaining and communicating as the deal evolved. She was the most professional and positive individual I'd worked with in a long time."
~ Cynthia P. (Redmond)
"Very helpful and knowledgeable"
"Grace Currier is, as usual, very helpful and knowledgeable. I'm sure her tips for "Staging" my condo to sell it helped it sell so quickly."
~ Judy R. (Bothell)
"Excellent, prompt, thorough, reliable, energetic, and perceptive!"
"Excellent, prompt, thorough, reliable, energetic, and perceptive! Grace not only listed our house but helped us find the one which we have now bought. Grace was a marvelous person and a very dignified and astute realtor. We especially appreciated that Grace did not use high power manipulation tactics. She always let us do our own thinking, and made careful suggestions."
~ Patty B. (NW Seattle)
"This letter serves to inform you of the outstanding professionalism we experienced with Grace Currier as our real estate agent. We have some knowledge of real estate affairs from our prior residence, but to date, no one has shown the excellence in her job as has Grace. Specifically, we found Grace to be readily available, and reliable, so much so that it seemed we may have been her only clients! Also, she was aggressive in meeting our needs, while personably allowing us to experience the house buying process and learn about what we really wanted in a house. The forms and process of purchasing a home can be overwhelming and confusing; she patiently detailed the salient points so we could reach a thorough understanding. Most importantly, she always was optimistic for us in finding the perfect house, in a difficult and rapid seller's market."
~ Scott & Victoria Cartwright (NE Seattle)
"Kept us informed of each step along the way."
"Grace was professional and kept us informed of each step along the way. It was a very difficult home to sell! She couldn't have done better!! After 3 months with another office and several deals that fell through, Grace was able to see the process through to the end - our $$ in the bank! She did a wonderful job."
~ Denise & Saeed M. (West Seattle)
"I cannot imagine finding anyone more experienced, dedicated or more a pleasure to work with"
"Grace did an excellent job helping me sell my house. I live in New York and was selling my home which I had been renting in Seattle for several years. I needed someone I could trust to handle a lot of matters while I was not there to supervise. Grace was recommended by a friend, and she distinguished herself immediately and truly became my right hand. She came up with a list of 20 or so items to help increase the presentation and value of the home. She recommended, met and supervised contractors. She developed a great web-site and flyers and held multiple open houses. She always answered her phone or got back to me within minutes. She kept me updated on everything happening with long, detailed e-mails and never dropped the ball on a single item. When it came time to negotiate the sale, she knew exactly what to do and everything went smoothly. Even though she was very experienced, she was open to my ideas throughout the process. I would highly recommend Grace to anyone. I cannot imagine finding anyone more experienced, dedicated or more a pleasure to work with."
~ Michelle Matta, New York (Fremont area, Seattle)
"We loved being able to work with someone who genuinely cared where we ended up"
"I have raved and raved about how great our first home buying experience was. Everyone says, "Wow, what made it so pleasant?" What they meant, as I am sure you gathered, was that buying a home is difficult and time consuming. It can be fun, but it can also be stressful. I have to tell them, every time, that our Realtor made this experience 1000 times better than I thought it would be. You walked us through the process, and to top it off, we loved being able to work with someone who genuinely cared where we ended up and wanted to make sure that we knew all of our options - even though they were a bit scarce. Richard and I just want you to know that we so appreciated working with you and will use your services on our next house and refer you to anyone we can in the meantime. We had a wonderful experience, thanks to you!"
~ Kristen & Richard Kiene (Kenmore)
"is a delight to work with"
"I'm not certain where to start except that this was the most remarkable real-estate experience I've ever heard of. I don't say this lightly and give Grace 100% of the credit. Grace is in the business to sell homes. She's smart, she's focused, she's knowledgeable and she's tough. She keeps her background in design, marketing and staging current. She understands what appeals to the widest range of buyers and stages accordingly. She's proactive and would never consider just plopping a sign in a front yard and waiting. Rather, she keeps up on the market and kept me in the loop. She followed up on every agent visit to my home with a phone call and she repeatedly advocated for me with potential buyers. But most importantly, Grace is a delight to work with. She listened to my ideas, solicited my input and although she wasn't afraid to disagree, she always made me feel I was part of a team. She's the consummate professional and I will most definitely work with her again.
Oh, and one other thing. When I decided to sell my home, the Seattle Market was one of the last six in the nation that had not yet taken a down-turn, but it had definitely become a buyers' market! Statistics showed 6 - 7 months as the average time a home was sitting on the market. Grace told me up-front that staging and marketing would be everything. Especially online (Internet) marketing! I now agree. She sold my home in 7 weeks. I would recommend Grace for any sale in any market."
~ Karen Sherwood (Bellevue)
"outstanding in every way"
"I have worked with a number of realtors over the years, buying and selling homes but none come close to the experience of working with Grace Currier. She has been outstanding in every way. She not only possesses the characteristics that make an excellent realtor (experience, market savvy, people skills, tenacity, dependability, attention to detail) but also those less often found: honesty, good humor, resources and sound judgment. In the twists and turns that often occur in real estate transactions, Grace was steadfast and went above and beyond the call of duty, never taking her eyes off the goal to sell the home for a fair price in good time. She's a gem and a great working partner! Because she is in tune with what people want, my home sold in a matter of days despite the soft market."
~ Judy Santos (Redmond)
"she fights hard for her client's interests"
"Grace Currier is an elite professional that every buyer should get to work with. She is caring, proactive, thoughtful and she fights hard for her client's interests. She loves people and it shows. She fights until the deal is done and she watches your back the whole way. I recommend this seasoned customer pleaser to you without reservation. Get with this lady; she will make your goals happen! We will never ever be able to repay the kindness she has shown us or our family."
~ Scott & Kathy Santos (Issaquah)
"guided us completely through the process"
Grace guided us completely through the process from start to finish. Grace staged our home beautifully for an excellent showing. She recommended some work to be done beforehand to get the best price and even offered to meet our contractors at the house when we had to be at work. She did a particularly good job of managing our expectations right from the start."
~ Lisa Higley (Seward Park - Seattle)
"Knowledgeable, highly responsive, went beyond the call of duty"
Grace was knowledgeable and provided useful insights and perspectives for us to consider throughout our search. She really helped us clarify our own thoughts to ensure we found the right house. She was also highly responsive, and we really felt she went beyond the call of duty more than once to get documents together for us on short notice. . . . . Grace worked weekends, worked late, and even got back online after a special night out with her husband to put together documents for us. She also took us to see homes that were well outside the areas she normally services without complaining or making us feel like she was doing us a huge favor. She was absolutely a delight to work with." "This is our second time working with Grace, and we wouldn't hesitate to work with her again. We've already recommended her to friends." - Gary & Amy Pope (Port Orchard)

"The experience with Windermere/ Grace has been amazing. She is very knowledgeable and was always upfront in letting us know the right property for us. She is very courteous and highly responsive. She always adjusted to our property viewing times and also ensured that we get the best one. We were also impressed by her polite and courteous nature. We are very obliged to her. Grace went beyond her normal office schedules and helped us in every way to find the best property, submit the offers on time and responded fast all the time. She also ensured we are well informed of our needs, risks, limitations of buying the property and helped us in every way to get the best deal. " - Nimesh & Archana Nagar (Bellevue)

"incredibly helpful, incredibly responsive, very prompt, so available"
Grace did an excellent job. She was incredibly helpful, walking us through all the steps of buying our first home. She was also incredibly responsive and very prompt with her work. She made everything go as smoothly as possible. She really was wonderful! She gave us updates and would give us emails about what to expect which helped immensely. She was so available in a way that made everything easier." - Caitlin Enright (Lynnwood)
