Do I need to have a Prequalification letter before I begin house hunting?
It is absolutely the best thing you can do to be empowered to win an offer. A seller will have much greater confidence in selecting you if you can demonstrate that you have been to a lender & are able to move forward and close the transaction.
How do I select a lender?
I have had the good fortune to work with a variety of lenders. This has enabled me to get really clear about how to make the right choice.
You want to interview a couple, ask them the same questions... how do they communicate? Email? In person? Phone calls? How frequently? Ask them how they will determine which loan is best for you. Listen to how they speak when they explain - Are you on the same page? Are they making things clear, or do you feel like you need an interpreter? Do you connect to them personally, enjoy chatting? That's your lender!
Should I over-price my home in the beginning? We can always come down.
I don't encourage sellers to over list. Instead I concentrate on pricing competitively, while putting your best foot forward where appearance in concerned. A thoughtfully priced home, that looks its very best, will typically draw more attention and sell quickly at fair market value.
Gretchen and Jake were an awesome team to work with to sell our home! From the first day we contacted them, they jumped into action and pulled all of their resources together to get our house on the market in 10 days. They used a variety of marketing strategies (drone and traditional pictures, staging, neighborhood marketing, etc) to make sure that we presented a very strong product as soon as the house was listed. Their communication skills along every step of the way made sure that we always knew exactly where we were in the process. Whenever we had questions, they were only a phone call or text away and always quick to reply. They guided us throughout the process and provided advice when requested but also made it clear that their main focus was to represent our wishes. We highly recommend Gretchen and Jake!
We relocated from out of state and worked with Gretchen remotely (for the most part) and she was super helpful along the way. She would send us videos and pictures which were a huge help rather than just looking at pictures online. I worked with quite a few different realtors and she is hands down my favorite thus far. She's very quick to respond to text/email/phone/, very easy going, and over all just a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend!
As first-time home buyers my boyfriend and I had no idea what we were in for. We've of course heard plenty of stories but really had no idea what to expect. Buying a home in this market was going to be a struggle from the beginning and we thought we were prepared and ready for rejection. Now here's where Gretchen steps in, her knowledge, persistence and dare I say knowledge again was how we landed the home we fell in love with and with minimal to no bruising to our egos or our wallets! From the start, I was wowed with Gretchen's demeanor, she's a get things done with little to no bs kind of person. She freely shares her knowledge and cares if you comprehend it! It's easy to spout off what might seem like a foreign language to others, but it takes a particular individual who loves what they're doing, to make sure you understand every process. Gretchen took the time to read between the lines and was able to answer most of our questions before we even had to ask them. Her positivity is infectious and for us, was vital for this process. We didn't think two, twenty-somethings would be able to find a home, let alone a home they could afford and win in today's bidding wars. We could not have done this without Gretchen, her confidence knowledge and attention (dare I say I may have been a little needy) were what got us to the finish line.
I wholeheartedly recommend Gretchen to anyone looking for a home. We all know someone who knows someone, or we know a realtor personally, but Gretchen's the real deal! Do yourself a favor, just give her a call and I promise you'll notice the difference immediately!
Thank you Gretch
When my neighbors put their house up for sale last year I watched their house sell very quickly. I asked them who their agent was and they gave me Gretchen's name and a raving review of how she handled the sale. So when I put my house up for sale and was in the market to buy a new home I knew who I was going to call, Gretchen Muldowney! Gretchen handled the sale of my home and the buying of my new home. She did a fabulous job on both from helping on what needed to be done, decisions on staging, pricing, contacts with contractors all the while presenting me homes that met what I was looking for. She staying on top of things all the way through the process from the offer to closing and even after closing checking in to make sure everything was good. Through all the stresses and challenges of selling and buying she always had a smile on her face and her positive energy was contagious. I highly recommend Gretchen for any of your reality needs!
Thank you Gretchen for all that you did to make this happen!
If I could give Gretchen 100 stars I would! We were living across the country when we needed someone who understood our position and would become a partner to us. Gretchen's knowledge of the process is onpoint. Not only did she have a mapped out schedule for us to follow once we got an offer but to our complete surprise, we got an offer within a month! She took the time to understand our back story, our needs and our goals. I truly believe this sets her apart- she understood and listened. She knew how to handle the process for us professionally and all while having our best interest at heart. Gretchen is organized, well prepared and always friendly. We will never use anyone else for our real estate needs!
Gretchen is amazing! She helped us with the purchase of a small piece of property that was For Sale by Owner. Her communication, attention to detail, knowledge and patience was top notch. We've used her in previous purchases and sales of our primary residence as well. Would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell any type of real estate.
My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Gretchen and her partner Jake, on our first home! They were always up front and honest, which we absolutely love! They were very knowledgeable about their job and their clients, which made this process for us a little less scary, since this was our first time! Their recommendations were always on point and they were also so very patient with our process since it did take longer than expected. We had a few hiccups along the way but they always put us at ease and made sure we were 100% comfortable at all times! They truly go the extra mile to help their clients! We will recommend them to everyone we know and we look forward to working with them again in the future! .
Gretchen and Jacob are some of the most amazing people that I have ever met. My husband and I worked with Gretchen tirelessly to find a home a few years ago. We were looking at three houses a week I loved every moment that I got to spend with her! We had to stop looking for a while, then when we were ready to start looking again we went right back to Gretchen. It wasn't even a thought that we had we just knew we would work with her!. Once we won the bid on our current home she and Jacob were there to walk us through each step in great detail. No question was to small or large for the team. I am so glad that our paths crossed and that they were able to help us in to our first home! If you have any doubt about the home buying process go with Gretchen she will guide you with kindness and love!
Where to begin about Gretchen. WOW!!! This woman went above and beyond so many times. My wife and I had been looking for a house off and on for almost two years. During that time my wife and I would call her with a house we found, and she would drop what she was doing and come show us the house. If we had any questions about anything, she would answer them, or find the answer as quickly as she could. She truly looked for houses with what we wanted in mind. There would be days that we wouldn't get any houses to look at in our emails, but this was only because she would only send us houses that fit the criteria we had set. We are tough clients. I won't lie. We expect a lot of a person that is going to be working for us. My wife and I both work in the customer service field, and give everything to our clients. We expect that from people that are working for us and with us. Gretchen pulled through on this with FLYING colors. I truly appreciate her. Without her I don't know if we would have found our dream home. Thank you Gretch!
Gretchen is probably the most motivated person and most driven person I've met. My family was relocating from Alabama to Seattle, and had a vague idea of what we wanted -- she helped us refine that idea and found us the house of our dreams. She wasted no time setting up appointments and driving around my wife to at least 20 different properties -- of all different size, shapes, ages & colors (because we had no clue what we were after). After seeing reactions from both of us, she started refining what we'd look at to help us wind up with a house we'd love.
When we finally chose the house, she was very active in helping us with the seller finishing out what was promised in the contract -- visiting the property (which is at least an hour away from her office) at least 5 times before closing.
The purchase went extremely well, even from a country away. I would recommend Gretchen to anyone! Now if only she'd fly to Alabama to sell our house there :)
Grechen has always been extremely professional and she has kept in touch with me on my property and answered my phone, email and text right away. Never had to wait less than a 5 or 10 mins for her respond. She is very friendly and knowledge about what she is doing. Thank you for all your help.
A couple of my co-workers recommended Gretchen and she has been awesome from day one. This will be our first house and she has been very patient with all of our first time homebuyer questions. We've done several different trips out to view multiple houses and she is very good about pointing out the pros and cons of each. I also find her suggestions for improvements on each house helpful as it gets me thinking about the future potential of the house. Last weekend we went out to look at a house that we thought might be the one and on the way back I thought it would be nice to drive by another potential candidate. Not only did Gretchen drive us out there (which was not part of the original plan) she reached out to their agent and got us a quick tour on extremely short notice. We've only put one offer in so far and we were promptly out bid but she patiently walked us through the whole process. Unfortunately we haven't found the right one yet but the day after we were out bid on one home Gretchen was right back to sending us new homes to consider. In this sellers market its been tough to find the right home but Gretchen has been wonderful to work with.
Gretchen is the whole package. Virtually all you could ever want in an agent and a human. If you are listing, she will, quite literally, take the pictures off her walls if it helps in your staging needs. If you are buying, she listens to all verbal and nonverbal cues to really narrow down what you are looking for in a home.
Gretchen is also an excellent communicator and active participant in your transaction. She is transparent about all major milestones and shares key dates, in the form of a checklist, so you can follow along with each step, feeling confident about where you are in the process. Buying and/or selling a house is one of the most stressful things a person does in their life and having someone looking out for us by making sure we stayed on track, and knew where we stood, was truly important to us.
We would recommend Gretchen to anyone for their buying and selling needs. You couldn't ask for someone more professional, warm, and trustworthy.
Thank you, Gretchen, for helping us find and purchase our dream home! We are so grateful that we got to go through this wild ride with you professionally and that we get to a great friend out of the deal too!
This woman is a miracle worker. She handled my every mental breakdown and panicked call. She played tough with the guys that needed to be handled and yet was as sweet as cherry pie. I genuinely love her! Will use her for any future investments and recommend her to anyone who is looking.
If you need a house, contact Gretchen. She will get you one.
Throughout the time we worked together, you never once turned into the pain-in-the-backside agent that makes these transactions crawl space. You were always positive, supportive, and never once acted like you were the only one who knew anything about buying or selling real estate. You know, you’ve worked with them, we all have. And, you never pressured us into cutting corners or covering anything up.
So, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you Gretchen. Thanks for the help. Thanks for bringing us a buyer. Thanks for the positive attitude. Thanks for setting the bar for others who do what you do. You’ve pretty much made it impossible for us to even consider working with anyone else in the future.
Thanks for helping us get to the “celebration.”
Gretchen sold a Lake Stevens property for me in 2013. They helped with staging and suggesting ways to maximize investment on quick updates. The property sold quickly at asking price.
We would happily use her and Kay again.
Gretchen & Kay are AMAZING! Not like most realtors. Very friendly, laid back, and they work extremely hard for their clients. Had our backs the entire time and made sure they did everything possible to make our home buying experience easier. LOVE THEM and would never use another realtor team. Will be letting everyone we know that is looking for a home to go to them. Gretchen sold a Lake Stevens property for me in 2013.

Kay and Gretchen are very good at what they do. They worked hard to sell my house. They are very professional and friendly. They held my hand through the entire process, which included siding work, painting, open houses, etc. I have and do recommend them to anyone wanting to sell their house.
These two agents have a lot of positive energy and determination. When you work with them, you know there is a ton of knowledge and experience behind them. I highly recommend Kay and Gretchen.....Team Integrity. Have you opened a new location, redesigned your shop, or added a new product or service? Don't keep it to yourself, let folks know.
Gretchen was wonderful to work with! She was so patient with me and just kept looking for "the right house". We ended up putting in bids on many houses before we were accepted and she never gave up. And when we finally found the perfect house, she has worked with me relentlessly throughout the whole process. I would recommend Gretchen to anyone in the area looking to buy or sell their home. She will work with you to make your dreams come true, she sure did for me!
