Noell was truly a great help. She made my house purchase experience very enjoyable. She kept in touch and truly help my family find our dream house. She was every knowledgeable and was truly instrumental in get us our house in a very competitive market.
When we decided to sell and make a cross-country move, we were overwhelmed with all the details that had to be sorted out. The timing on selling our house was critical, and we needed someone we could trust to get it done. A friend of mine recommended Chase and Maria, saying they worked very hard for them in purchasing their home in a very competitive seller’s market a couple years back. Chase and Maria made me feel very comfortable, listening carefully to what we were trying to accomplish, and sharing the details of the strategy they thought would work best. Our house sold in a difficult market, very quickly, and for a price we were very happy with. They even put us in touch with a partner in our new state, whom they coordinated with to make sure our transition went smoothly; and it did, from staging, to open house, and even a complex contingent-buyer situation. I would absolutely recommend Team Costello.
Noell was tireless in my search to find my home. She did not hesitate to make time to go look at properties when they came up. She was diligent in doing the research around comps and making sure the homes we looked at were priced appropriately and that we didn’t get into something that wasn’t a fair or lopsided deal. She was great in preparing bids and always acted in my best interest. Highly recommend!
We had the pleasure of working with MaryAnn when purchasing our home. She exceeded all of our expectations, both in terms of helping us find a home and finalizing all required work leading up to closing. If you’re in the market for a home MaryAnn will certainly be there to assist every step of the way.
I had the pleasure of Noell being my Realestate Agent and she is truly one of a kind and forever grateful to her for helping me find and own my 1st home which is a dream come true. She is very real, confident, personable with a great attitude! I really appreciated her hard work in helping me with my very long home buying process due to some unexpected lender issues I had come across, she was there every step just as I was getting frustrated and ready to drop the deal she didn’t let me give up. Her honesty and her abilities to continuously follow, really helped me cross that finish line!
Our home search was for a vacation property with the participation of a several family members. The search covered some 18 properties in the winter, often requiring long treks through snow to see vacation homes. MaryAnn, was, in the words of our party: “A lot of patience, very professional, yet fun to be around”; “Gave us space to look around without hovering, non-judgmental of our decisions, with no pressure”; “when invited, actively participated in our evaluations of the properties we looked at”; “scheduled house hunting trips when it was convenient for us, with a lot of flexibility”; “informative, found answers for us, provided valuable experience and background information; thorough, attentive, and followed through”. Most importantly, MaryAnn really brought her experience and persistence to focus once we had made an offer, and her actions made the difference in getting the property we wanted. We would definitely recommend her service and would look to her again for our realty needs.
Maria is a consummate professional. She is knowledgeable, patient and insightful. I could not be happier with her efforts. I feel that she has my best interest at heart and she is responsive to all my questions. I feel very fortunate that she is my agent!
We loved working with MaryAnn! She negotiated an excellent deal on our home and was able to get us a great price with her up to date market data, and business negotiating skills. We really benefited from MaryAnn’s wealth of knowledge in real estate and she was an excellent resource to us during the buying process. She was always available for us and with her research was able to get us excellent info on any properties we asked about. This woman is the one to know in buying and selling properties!
Chase and Noell were awesome! They were responsive to our needs and got the home sold. Very professional and supportive along the way too! I highly recommend them!
Working with Noell was a great experience for our family. She spent time getting to know us and what we were looking for in a home. Noell is a true local real estate expert; she helped us filter through all the inventory and curated our search which helped us narrow down neighborhoods and made our home search process thorough but efficient. Noell helped us find our dream home and expertly worked with us throughout the negotiation and closing process which kept things moving quickly and smoothly. We are so glad we worked with Noell and would recommend her to anyone looking for a dedicated local real estate expert.
What can I say? I am duly impressed. I initially contacted Noell about 2 years ago arriving in the Greater Seattle Area to look at a rental on the East side of town. Noell advised against pursuing the rental since it did not meet our requirements. We kept in touch ever since, provided Noell our requirements when we were ready to buy, she showed us an array of homes to gauge our interest. Extremely knowledgeable in the area, home valuations, and schools. When we finally when to purchase a home, provided great lenders, contract clarity, and very good working relationship with the Seller’s realtor. This really made the home purchasing experience enjoyable. As an added bonus, Noell has provided some great tips to my wife and I on improving the home layout (Kitchen, Bath, etc), we think she may secretly be a interior designer :).
Working with Chase was an absolute pleasure. He was very knowledgeable about areas and potential problems or things we may not like that he pointed out for us while seeing homes as well as the plus points and local amenities. He was always prompt with replies. As a first time home buyer he walked us through the whole process and even helped us to close early. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a house.
Mary-Ann (MA as we called her) helped us find a house in the south Bothell area in May, 2018, ending our 3-month search for a home. MA had abundant knowledge about the area, built a great relationship with the agent on owner side, had great knowledge about house design/construction from her previous work, would very subtly give her opinions to help us taking out the “agent” hat, and was always fun to drive with my wife and me. Very highly recommended to anyone looking to buy a house!
When we look for a realtor we want someone who knows the area an the market. Noell takes the time to do this. Having known Noell for many years we can tell you she works tirelessly to ensure we are well represented, both when we buy or sell. We count on her to keep our needs and wants in her sights and would not hesitate to recommend her! Thanks Noell!
Noell is an amazing agent, and I could not have asked for anyone better. Her recommended inspector was thorough and honest about the repairs that would need to be done to the house. I’m incredibly thankful that she was looking out for me during my purchase of my first house by keeping track of what needed to be done, and giving me tips. Thanks to Noell, I was able to close within 3 weeks. I’d highly recommend her.
My wife and me are first time home-buyers, but we know that a good agent is a key for success in house hunting. We have chosen to work with Chase and it was a good decision! Now I know that first time buyers are really hard to work with and Chase did a great job helping us! He was extremely responsive and ready to show places anytime (even knowing that we will not make an offer on it) I really appreciate help and support that we received during those 6 months we were looking for out new home. Chase really become our family friend because we have spent a lot of weekends seeking for homes together 🙂 If you are looking for a perfect agent then answer is simple – reach out to Chase and his great Team!
I could not be happier with my first time home buying process! Chase was incredibly knowledgeable about the housing market, local neighborhoods, and the buying process. He helped facilitate engagements with the seller and the lender, and made me feel informed and comfortable every step of the way. He was always available to view or discuss properties, or just answer my questions. I would absolutely recommend Chase to anyone looking to buy in the crazy Seattle market!
I came across Noell through a friend of a friend who had a very successful experience with her. I was first struck by her knowledge. My wife and I would refer to Noell as the walking encyclopedia. For most of us, purchasing a home will probably be our largest investment. It’s nice to be reassured that the person representing you has a firm handle on the trials and tribulations as it relates to these types of transactions. Lastly, the pressure and stress of such a transaction can be daunting. The reassurance and calmness that Noell instilled within the negotiation process was a welcomed distraction. In closing and for whatever reason, I really don’t engage in too many of these online reviews. Noell has truly earned the applause. Well done, Noell and thank you.
She worked very hard to find us the perfect condo we needed and was patient through the process. I will call on her to find my next home when the time comes. I have no reservations recommending her to anyone looking for a home.
