Testimonials: We want to earn your trust, too
One-of-a-kind and truly a master
Following our first contact we sent Sandi a detailed list of what we were looking for in a home. She did her homework, and showed us a number of potential fits for our needs, even though we were not ready to make a purchase immediately. The fact that we did not find anything that was "just right" did not deter her in the least. Properties like we sought are few and far between on Orcas Island, but Sandi never lost sight of our original goals list during our 3-year search. When we finally found the perfect place we knew it, and so did Sandi. She was like family, always keeping our desires in sight, and always watching out for us. During the pre-purchase inspection and evaluation period Sandi was a priceless resource for getting the very best people to help us in a critically timely way, and provided the much-needed voice of reason and calm. Incredibly detail-oriented and focused, she handled the inevitable surprises with skill and creativity, and made the process infinitely easier for us. Her negotiation skills are superb; she always seemed to know what would create success. Since our purchase, she has continued to connect us with creative, talented people to help us customize our dream home. Words truly fail us to describe the impact Sandi has had on our experience. She is one-of-a-kind, and truly a master at her craft. Potential clients should look no farther to find the ultimate professional and advocate in finding their island home

Focused, knowledgable, organized advocate
Focused, knowledgeable, thoroughly organized, great buyer’s advocate. Sandi was fantastic to work with throughout the property search and buying process. She guided us seamlessly through, at times, a challenging home purchase due to several “surprises” caused in large part by a lack of full disclosure on certain issues and poor legal contract management by the Seller’s agent (IMO). Through it all, Sandi maintained an even keel and was an absolute pleasure to work with. Great person and well respected in the Orcas and San Juan community at large based on feedback we received during our due diligence and our overall experience.

Positive persistence to make real estate dreams happen
Teri, I’ve watched you do whatever it takes to make things happen for your clients. First, you do your homework, which is how you can out-negotiate competitors to get your client the price they want to pay. You never overlook unresolved issues and future pitfalls just to get the deal done – instead you make sure there is as much certainty as humanly possible so there are no surprises down the road. And then there's your extensive knowledge of County regulations, who's who on the island, your business experience, and your comfortable ability in talking to everyone from the most accomplished and wealthy to new families just starting out. And let’s not forget your intangible but absolutely magic ingredient of positive persistence that brings everyone together – surveyors, attorneys, title company, county, contractors and more – to make real estate dreams happen.
A strong mind and determination

Simply the best agent

We met Beth when we decided to pursue our dream of purchasing a vacation home on Orcas Island. We had many ideas of what we thought we wanted. She listened to all of our ideas and wishes, and found us several interesting properties to look at. She offered excellent suggestions about possibilities that we had not even considered. She enhanced our decision making process by pointing out details that we missed. When we did decide on a property she quickly processed all the paperwork. She kept us informed through the entire process. She responded to our many questions, quickly, answering our emails within a couple of hours at the longest. This was so important since we are not local and had to do much over the internet/email etc. She is simply the best real estate agent we have ever worked with.
