"Linda lives and breathes a genuine and fulfilling hunt for the perfect real estate for her clients. She was very patient with me as a first time home buyer, and was very flexible and adaptable as my ideas changed about what I wanted over time. She framed the right questions for me to think through, shared high-level stories of other client's journeys to help me learn, and was always able to provide an objective perspective of pros/cons/timing/the current state of the market as we searched. Linda's natural ability to make personal and professional connections wherever she goes afforded me opportunity to enter into a FSBO situation, with the perfect home.This allowed me to purchase at a reasonable price. Linda was my tenacious advocate, and when we went through the offer process and paperwork together, she was very meticulous and challenged details in a respectful way, which put me at ease that she truly had my best interests at heart. As you may come to learn, Linda is Dutch and has an amazing story for how she came to choose the Seattle area for her home years ago and is a strong and amazing, independent woman to get to know personally. Her global awareness, quips, accent and insight on what life is all about made for an overall delightful experience, and I am so glad to be able to call her my friend today. I highly recommend Linda as a Realtor for Buyers and Sellers."
-Julia, Buyer 2017 - Columbia City
"Linda’s wealth of knowledge provided us with professional guidance that
put our home on the market with a sales strategy that was very experienced,
left nothing overlooked, and had our home sold in a week. Her expertise
goes beyond sales. She exceeded expectations as a property manager for our
home when it was a rental property and made us feel like we had family
watching over it for us. Real estate matters can be very complicated and
stressful, but she was there to make sense of everything for us every step
of the way in all aspects of owning, renting, and selling a property. Thank
-Natalie & Joseph, Sellers 2016 - Madison Valley
I worked with Linda for quite a long time to find the right place for me in Seattle's crazy market. I was a first time homebuyer and she was incredibly patient and seemed happy to explain (in detail) answers to my numerous questions. I felt like Linda really advocated for me and she took the time and work to make sure an extension that I needed for closing was fair between me, the lender, and the seller. Both of us also took an extra class so that I would be eligible for a tax credit. She worked with my busy work schedule (I'm often unavailable during business hours). Linda is incredibly persistent and detail-oriented, and I would particularly recommend her for any first-timer in the market for real estate.
Genia ( Buyer 2015 Seattle - First Hill )
We bought our first home in Greenwood last spring. We met Linda when we
walked into an open house in Madison Valley. Linda was immediately kind,
warm and open without being pushy. She walked us through the process of
buying our first home. Buying a house in Seattle, especially as first time
home-buyers, can be a trying process. Linda was knowledgeable, supportive
and walked us through thoughtful strategies and careful negotiations. We
ended up with a house we love very much at a price we were comfortable with.
I highly recommend Linda!
-Courtney and Preston (2014 Buyers, Seattle)
Linda helped us sell our waterfront condo last summer. She was very helpful
and attentive throughout the entire process. It was stress free and an
enjoyable emotional experience.
-Roberta & Chris (2014 Sellers, Seattle)
Linda has given me a new found respect for the Realtor profession. Detail-orientied, professional and patient are only some of the ways I can describe my home buying experience with Linda. My highest recommendation goes to Linda for anyone searching for a Realtor professional!
-Jared (2014 Buyer Seattle Columbia City)
"Dear Linda, we wish to thank you for the amazing job you did when we asked you to help us sell our house in the winter of 2012. Never did we think we would have that much interest between November & December. Linda, you proceeded like the "Classy Agent" you are, hiring an expert photographer, giving up your planned trip and having open houses immediately. The result, you sold our house in 14 days for "Top Price".
You were there for us through all the details of offer-reviews to the closing at the very end and we sincerely thank you for the great job you did for us to help prepare our relocation to Idaho.
WITH MUCH APPRECIATION"
Blaine & Joanne Gibbs - (2012 - Sellers Seahurst-Burien)
"I recently re-located to Seattle from the east coast and had to find a rental residence within a relatively short time frame. Understanding my time limitations, Linda was very prompt, organized, and provided excellent communication between myself, the property management company, and the owners to get the paperwork completed in a timely manner. I ended up getting the perfect rental for my needs, in a great area, and I would definitively like to work with Linda again in the future when I am looking to buy a permanent home in the area."
- Laura Flessner, (2012 Tenant - Greenwood-Seattle)
"Linda Cassee's attention to detail made our experience as sellers a breeze, and we are so grateful to her. Our busy lives had made the project seem forboding, but Linda had her eye on everything and was courteous and helpful, ballast to the ship, always willing to go the extra mile. We were selling in the wintertime and had to come down a little in our expected value in order to sell promptly, but Linda never pressured us to make any decision, simply presenting the offers, and our options, in an informed and placid way. She gave multiple open houses, made it her business to know everything she could about the buyers, and was very well-connected and communicative with other agents, which was helpful in sussing out buyer intentions. Personable, pleasant, respectful and kind, clear and prepared, professional and warm, informed and high-performing: she's everything one needs in an agent. We hope to work with her again in the future."
-Audrey Freudenberg & Truman Buffett (2012 Sellers, Upper Rainier Beach, Seattle)
"Dear Linda, I appreciate that you recommended this two-bedroom condo to me, while I was looking for apartment for my daughter, even this condo was not in market at that time. Because you had early information from other agent we could make offer on first day.
Your keen service help my daughter to begin her happy life in our lovely home near her school very quickly, and your experience and carefully analysis make the deal concluded very soon with satisfied price. Thank again."
-Jasmine Zheng from Shanghai of China - (2011 Buyer, First Hill, Seattle)
"Linda was extremely well prepared and on top of all details during the entire process of finding, buying and closing on my new house"
-Leo van Dorp (Buyer , Issaquah) SVP Sales and Business Development
"We were very happy to have Linda work with us to buy our home. We planned to puchase a home in a great location and after looking for a while, we got exactly that. We were in a multiple offer situation (10+) offers and ours was accepted! Linda scheduled all meetings and interactions at our convenience, she promptly returned all phone calls, emails and was always available on short notice if we wanted to preview a home. Linda was very diligent and suggested a real estate attorney when we choose a bank owned property, since they have their own contract and we wanted to make sure that we all understand the ramifications. She was often in contact with the listing agent, escrow and our mortgage company to make sure everything was moving forward, and she made it happen. She worked hard, illustrated a great understanding of contract details, negotiation etiquette and documentation. We really appreciated Linda's calm reassurance and expert advise throughout the entire process. She was the outstanding professional we were looking for and having her work with us made a nerve-wrecking negotiation a wonderful success! Best of all, she is a Realtor who makes it her job to help you meet YOUR GOALS rather than her own; we highly recommend Linda Cassee!"
-Anne & Brent Willen (2010 Buyers - Bellevue, Clyde Hill)
"We found Linda at an open house in Judkins one day. Her warm and welcoming personality made us keep her business card as a potential agent to work with when we were ready to start looking for our own home to buy. We reconnected with her a month later, and were surprised she remembered us from the open house. Linda demonstrated extreme patience for us as first time home buyers and offered her wealth of knowledge as she supported us in our decision making process. Despite the challenges of the crazy winter season- extreme rains, power outages and snow and ice, we were able to find the greatest first home with Linda's help. Thank goodness for her Subaru and her patience! Thank you Linda for all your expertise and guidance through the purchase of our new home! "
-Carrie and Kathryn ( First time buyers, West Seattle)
"Linda was quick to respond to any questions and concerns I had. She made the buying process easy."
- Mark (First time Buyer, Bell-Town, Seattle)
"Linda, thank you for all the work you did to sell my home, a beautiful home but a very difficult one to sell. When we first talked you told me you had sold a "cliff house" before and felt you could help me sell mine as it would take a special buyer. We both know how much of a job that was. You held many Open Houses all summer long and eventually one did procure the current owners. I don't think any other agent would have done as much as you did to sell my home. I realize it is your job but I want to let you know that I appreciated all the extra work you did to make it work."
-J. Soltis, (Seller, Leschi, Seattle)
"My wife and I were getting ready to move our family overseas and Linda worked very well with us and our company's appointed relocation services. Linda started working with us even months before we made a decision to sell our house. Her patience and knowledge of real estate made it all possible. We were confident the house was in good hands, she made herself available to show it at all times, made sure there were enough flyers, arranged for open houses, advertised in papers and on the internet. She took great pride in promoting our house, and kept us informed of all feedback. A challenge to sell "the best house on the block" Linda got the house sold very quickly at full price. She is easy to work with and we recommend her without reservation."
-Bart & Fatma, Engineers (Sellers, Maple Leaf, Seattle)
"Linda Cassee was my Realtor in the recent sale of my mother's condominium on Queen Anne in Seattle. Her services included a detailed market analysis, marketing plan, pricing, sales strategies, reviewing offers and closing. I was impressed by her professionalism and attention to detail in all these aspects. I relied on her entirely and confidently. Linda was a pleasure to work with and I would readily recommend her to any friend of family member in need of realty services."
-Sally S.McMahan, (Resident & Seller, Queen Anne, Seattle)
"Linda Cassee is one of the most dynamic business women I have
worked with in any industry. She is an effective agent that keeps her word and gets the job done efficiently and professionally. I admire and respect Linda's work ethic and her commitment to her clients. She is a PRO! I have and will continue to recommend her to my friends, family and colleagues. Everyone enjoys working with an individual who gets the job done!
And with a SMILE!"
-Mitzi Nakamura-Verlinde (Sr.Loan Officer Cobalt), Ph:425-452-5920
"Linda is a wonderful agent. She's very attentive to one's wishes in obtaining a new home. She was always prepared with the latest listings and exuded never-ending patience for all of my questions.
I recommend her to any first-time home buyer."
-Darlene Davis (First time Buyer & Seller-First Hill, Seattle)
"It was truly a pleasure working with Linda Cassee. In 2002, we worked with Linda to buy a house in West Seattle. When we decided to sell our home in 2005, Linda was the first person we thought of. Because of her thoroughness and thoughtfulness, we felt confident in Linda's abilities and were able to feel more relaxed when buying and selling our home at a time our baby was born. Linda was very considerate of our needs and worked hard to make sure our needs were met. We highly recommend Linda, and feel that anyone who has the opportunity to work with her is truly lucky! We hope to work with her again in the future."
- The Bourne Family (Buyers & Sellers West Seattle)
"Working with Linda as my agent was the best decision I made in 2005! She made my house search a totally pleasant adventure. During our search she showed me the city, gave a lot of good information and managed to get in some fun too. Linda is not "pushy" but definitely "steered" when needed. She is an effective negotiator and keeps the ball in play even when it appears the other party lost interest, She listened, worked hard for me and was very dependable. If I ever move I look forward to listing my house with Linda.
" (Buyer - Madison Park, Seattle)
"Linda Cassee is very professional and ethical in representing her clients. We were pleasantly surprised by her thorough research and knowledge of neighborhoods, architects, and history of houses. We were very fortunate to have her as our real estate agent in selling our house in Madrona!"
- R. Teorell, (Madrona Seller, Seattle)
It has been a pleasure working with Linda Cassee as a realtor who really cares for her clients and demonstrates incredible follow-through. I highly recommend using Linda Cassee who is an expert in her industry and delivers first-class service!
- Tammy Wiskow (Sr. Loan Consultant, COBALT Mortgage)
"Linda, I will remember you as a woman of class with a style of professionalism unmatched by anyone. It has been my pleasure to know you and if anyone should ask me if I could recommend a real REALTOR®, yours will be the name I give them."
- Joe Burke, (Fellow REALTOR®, retiring)
"Purchasing a house in the Seattle area can be quite overwhelming, especially when most of the properties turn over in a matter of days. Linda took the time to explain and show my wife and I all of the neighborhoods, so that we could make a more informed decision. Whenever there was a property that we wanted to look at she always made herself available. We soon found the property we were looking for and she did a great job guiding us through the paperwork, making sure everything was in order - and in our case, even teaching the (new) listing agent a thing or two. We look forward to working with her again and maintaining a friendship over the years."
- Jeremy Reding, Designer (Buyer, Greenlake)
I write to express my sincerest appreciation at the way I was looked after by realtor Linda Cassée on my quest to buy a house in Seattle. I had looked forward with anticipation but never in my dreams could I have conceived just how wonderful it was that she was my agent. From the moment of first conversation, in which I outlined my wishes, throughout the house-searching process and to the final stage of buying, the attention Linda Cassée provided was something very special. Her attention to every detail, whatever I asked of her, she so willingly obliged. I am flat out extolling her professionalism and dedication to all who will listen.
- Peter O. Wurmbauer (Buyer, Madison Valley)
"Linda sensed perfectly what we were looking for. Before we knew it, she had found the right house for us." - Sander & Danielle (Buyers, Capitol Hill, Seattle)
"Buying a home can be an overwhelming, sometimes frustrating experience. However, Linda was with us every step of the way. She was always available to show us a home and answer any questions we had. Linda had an incredible knowledge base of the whole home buying process: everything from loan applications, up and coming neighborhoods, to inspection details.
She was very organized and always had a variety of homes to show us within our price range. Always one step ahead, Linda pre-screened homes recently listed on the market and would steer us away from homes not within our budget or basic specifications. We never felt pressured or rushed. We trusted her expertise in matching us up with the perfect home - as a result, are now living in the home of our dreams. Linda's friendliness, open manner, and dedication made our home buying experience a pleasure."
- Ben & Carrie Kim (First time Buyers & Sellers Central Area, Seattle)
"I worked with Linda to get a house ready to sell in the Seattle Aboretum area. She made sure that all the details were taken care of before they became problems. She is easy to work with, and knows exactly what she is doing. Needless to say, the house sold quickly. Linda works hard for her clients, and is great to work with. I would recommend Linda to anyone."
