For Buyers

The Western Washington real estate market is made up of diverse and interesting communities and neighborhoods. We’ll tell you about each of them and let you narrow your search to find the very best property for you.

We help buyers understand the many fields of information in an MLS (Multiple Listing Service) search. We guide you in making the most of searches in an MLS with thousands of listings.

Once we have an idea of your criteria for a home selection, we set you up on an automated search alert email to keep you informed of new listings and price reductions of properties that fit your criteria. 

As tough as it is these days to get a mortgage, we know the best sources in the market and will help you contact mortgage professionals who have experience that we trust. 

Buyers shouldn't walk into a deal unarmed. We arm you with market data to help you understand the buyer and seller sides and formulate an on offer price negotiation strategy. 

Price isn't the only negotiation, as there will be property inspections and you may need to enter into more negotiating around property condition and repairs. We have seen it all and we are experts in asking the right questions to uncover any hidden repairs. 

The myriad of tasks, documents and delivery deadlines involved in a real estate transaction are all coordinated by us and our closing assistance staff. We are here to help. 

For Sellers

Sellers have enough to worry about in readying their property for market. CPIWA takes over a huge number of tasks and details to make sure that your real estate property or business is properly evaluated, priced, marketed, negotiated and carried to closing.

We help our clients to value their property through a thorough CMA report using current listing price data and past sold comparable property sales.

It's important that we help you search the MLS so you can learn about currently listed homes similar to yours. Only by knowing the competition can you set a competitive price. 

We have perfected a marketing plan for every type of property in the market. Some things work better in some areas and price ranges than others. We will craft a unique plan for your property. 

We consider it our obligation to help you thoroughly and objectively evaluate your home's condition and features to properly assess how it competes in the current real estate market. 

The negotiations rarely end with the price. However, once the buyer completes their inspection and document examination processes, they often object to things discovered and request corrective action that involves expense to the seller. We're here to work you you every step of the way! 

There are more than 50 tasks, objectives and deliveries involved in taking a seller side transaction from contact through a successful closing. We're on top of all of them to make sure you leave the closing tale with a check to move on with life.
