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, 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.
Sandi’s extensive knowledge of the local real estate market and of county rules, her willingness to do thorough research and thoughtful analysis before making recommendations, her experience and no fear in negotiating, her talent for finding the right words to express the rationale for your point of view and actions, her tact, her diligence and hard work ethic, her attention to detail, her background in home design … combined with her grace and kindness … make her a realtor you want representing you.
