Testimonials: We want to earn your trust, too
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.
Admiration and respect

We trusted her from the start
Ron and Katy Lenn
When you think of the qualities that make the ideal real estate agent – Beth is the complete package. We trusted her from the start. We found working with her a joy and felt she was always there to help through every step of the purchasing process. She emanates a sense of dependability that makes you feel secure during what is, no question, a very involved process. Beth is a true professional in every sense of the word, and puts her clients interest far above her own. With our purchase she was attentive to every detail and always displayed an incredible eagerness to minimize efforts on our part. (This was especially appreciated as we were buyers from out of state – with out-of-state sellers as well). She was happy to work with contractors and schedule work on our behalf. Communication was always thorough and well detailed. For example, she arranged with contractors to locate and test an abandon well for supply and purity [which meant working with the County’s electric company to have power turned on]. She made sure the property was buildable by insuring we had an approved septic design, she combed County records for what might have been a hidden drainage pipe, (even contacted a neighbor to further verify). She also put us in direct contact with specific individuals at the water utility company who had the expertise to answers questions we had regarding future water services to the property; she even supplied aerial photos. Then, even after the sale had been finalized, she had her husband remove an ugly sign that was solidly bolted to a fir tree on the property; then emailed us pictures showing that the sign had been removed. (Sometimes it’s the little things.) To illustrate her professionalism further, after all the “i’s” had been dotted and the “t’s” crossed; she informed us that when we got ready to build she would put us in contact with reputable contractors, even assist and guide us through the maze of county permits. Whoa! … And we’re from out of state… Oh! And we should mention, escrow closing was a breeze. She’s good, really good. We would be very happy to give Beth our highest recommendation for anyone looking to buy or sell a property. Her in-depth knowledge and her many professional and personal contacts puts her in a desirable position to take advantage of opportunities for her clients which other Realtors can only aspire to. This by itself sets Beth apart from other Realtors.
Enthusiastic and determined

The teamwork at T Williams Realty results in someone always working on your behalf. Any questions or situations were taken care of immediately. Our realtor, Miramonee, was enthusiastic and determined that the sale of our bed and breakfast would be successful! We received good advice about other offers and we are so glad we listened! Even when the buyer’s lender started changing terms and escrow was delayed three times, both Teri Williams and Miramonee remained positive and reassuring. We are so appreciative and highly recommend this office to handle the sale of your property.
I recommend this firm to anyone considering selling or buying real estate in the San Juan Islands.

Simply the best agent
Liz and Bob Rodriguez
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.
Monee helped me find my dream property
Monee helped me find my dream property on Orcas Island! She listened to what I was looking for and took the time to get to know me, so the properties she showed me were all spot on. She was incredibly supportive, kind, fun and helpful throughout the whole process. I look forward to working with Monee again in the future!
A pleasure working with Beth

Above and beyond
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.
By far the best
John and Wanda
We never could have done this without you
Libby and Jerry Sullivan
Great news, Teri! There were times we didn't think it would happen but you went above and beyond so many times we've lost count. In spite of us being 3,000 miles away, you definitely were there for us throughout the process. From finding contractors and even a home for the piano, we could never have done this without you. Our only regret is not being able to meet you in person. We wish you all the best and are happy to provide an exceptional review. Thanks again so very, very much!
