Team Testimonies

 

I wanted to take a moment to sing the praises of one of your agents, Mickie Barnett. We originally started our search for a home with another agent at Windemere but had a horrific experience so we fired her and interviewed several agents before finding our perfect match in Mickie. Mickie exemplifies what it means to be the consummate professional with so much knowledge and wisdom about the real estate market but what put her over the top is the just right amount of kindness and compassion. She was always on our side and fought for us at every turn whether it was at 6am or 10pm at night. We could always count on her.

We had a very confusing, complicated and rocky journey in both selling our home and finding our ultimate retirement home but with Mickie’s patience and guidance we got through it all and are now starting to settle into our new home. We’ve worked with many, many agents over the years and Mickie surpassed all of our expectations and anticipated all of our needs. Mickie is the ultimate professional but even better…. she’s a wonderful, caring person and Keller Williams is lucky to have her on board. We will definitely tell all of our friends who our STAR Agent was when they start their journey to sell or buy a new home. – Bob and Mary Spisak

Toby was amazing! He helped my husband and I find a home in South King county when he normally works in Snohomish county. He was always quick to respond to our questions, willing to go out of his way to enure our happiness and he was completely flexible with our schedules. He was a pleasure to work with :) – Dan & Katie Perry

Toby was GREAT for us during the Short Sale of our home! We had multiple offers/delays that we had to deal with (mainly due to the bank/lender), but he was diligent and on top of things to help us expedite the process, and complete the sale of our home! I would DEFINITELY use him again when the time comes to purchase a home again! – Sara Bloom

I have been active duty military for a8 years and have moved all over the United States. We have dealt with many Real Estate agents but Toby by far has been nothing short of amazing!! My wife and I thankfully called Toby from San Diego interested in finding a home. While still in San Diego, Toby went above and beyond providing us in depth video tours of the houses we were interested in making it so much easier to understand the layout of the property making our decision easier. We finally moved to Everett Washington and met Toby and once again his hospitality and work ethic proved to be true as he found us the perfect home in the perfect location. Toby has outstanding knowledge of all the surrounding cities North of Seattle IE: Everett, Marysville, Lake Stevens, Monroe, Arlington, Mount Vernon, Mill Creek, Lynnwood, Granite Falls, Mukilteo, Stanwood, ext… He also is an outdoorsman so he was very helpful with providing lots of information about outside activities such as hiking, camping, and road trips in general. After this experience of buying a house through Toby my wife and I we have developed more of a friendship that we believe will last forever. I honestly couldn’t think of a better person to recommend for assistance in buying a home than Toby Barnett. Thank you Toby for all your support and hard work. Chie and I are truly blessed to have bought the house we are in. – Shane & Chie Krueger

Julie and I used Toby as he was recommended by our loan broker. We could not have asked for a better agent and representative. He is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. He answered all our questions on the spot and he clearly knew what he was talking about. Not only did we have a wonderful experience with Toby, we also gained an agent we definitely will be using in the future and a friend. He’s a great guy with a great personality! Thank you Toby for making this home buying experience easy and fun! – Eric & Julie Lutz

Mickie is an awesome broker. This summer my husband and I returned to Mukilteo from our international teaching job. We had found ownership from afar was too difficult, and so it was time to sell the home we had loved. We had given this a great deal of thought and had many questions for our “brokers”. I’m sure Mickie’s team found our interviewing grueling, but they were always professional. We made the decision to ask Mickie to be our broker. I am very glad about that decision. My husband returned to Azerbaijan and I was left to sell the house. I suppose for many in that position they would say they were left alone to sell the house, but not me. Mickie was there every step of the way. I learned she was even more than just professional; she really cares about each individual she represents. I have learned that selling a house is an arduous task. She was there through the fun times (we laughed together); through sad times (leaving a house and area I have loved); through tedious times (showings, showings, showings, open houses); through depressing times (inspection); through confusing times (final paperwork); through exasperating times (delays); through exhausting times (packing up, moving out); through all the extras (finding repair people, yard sales, putting furniture on Craig’s List……) Now, again, I am looking for a broker–this time to manage property in Philadelphia. And as I meet new brokers in this area, my opinion of Mickie is reinforced. Mickie is an awesome broker.

Toby really went above and beyond in our home buying experience. this was my first home and I was really unsure about the process and logistics of everything. Toby did everything he could to keep me calm and comfortable with everything. he was extremely flexible with scheduling and viewing all the homes I wanted. I never felt like i was putting him out. He had a great sense of humor and made our experience enjoyable even when things were crazy and I was stressed. He did everything he cold to reassure us that everything would work out and I felt like he had my best interests in mind and that he was doing everything he possibly could. – Kelli Tyack

Mickie and Toby Barnett is a killer combo in real estate. Mickie has sold four homes for me to date. She has always been right on the mark for knowing what the houses would sell for (even when I wanted to try for higher). She was patient with me and very knowledgeable of the real estate market and completely on the mark every time. Mickie and Toby’s experience of real estate in Snohomish, King and Skagit Counties is superior. They don’t just list your property, they work it, they close the deal!! They keep you informed of all activity. Their marketing program is exceptional! If you want the best/most knowledgeable team in real estate, Mickie and Toby Barnett are it!!! – Dennis & Maxine Hanger

We found Toby Barnett by chance in 2011 and he showed us several homes in our range in the area we wanted to be in. We looked pretty aggressively over several months for the perfect home. Toby was always flexible and patient with us. This was a really long and frustrating process that he made so much easier for us. He was very honest and never tried to push us into anything that we weren’t absolutely sure of. Instead he gave his advice when asked and was always ready with info on all the properties we looked at. We finally found the perfect place, at the right price, and closed June 1st 2012! On top of being very friendly and professional, his team was amazing! They answered all my questions and responded very quickly to my calls and emails. I would and do recommend Toby Barnett to anyone looking to buy or sell. – Chris & Amanda O’Brian

My husband and I couldn’t be happier with the service we received from Toby Barnett. This was our second home purchase and the difference in knowledge, professionalism and communication was “night and day” compared to our first home buying experience. Toby’s knowledge of the market and attention to detail was outstanding. He was there with us every step of the way in the home buying process, providing us with much needed peace of mind. Not only would we recommend his services without hesitation, we’d give him 10 stars. – Paul & Lisa Inman

Toby was great! My husband and I were doing a military relocation and there were times we were not able to be in the area. Toby was our eyes, at times, and went above and beyond to get us the house we wanted. He worked extremely hard for us! Toby made us feel very comfortable and treated us like family. He made the process of buying a home simple and always let us know what to expect. He was even able to negotiate a few repairs on the home for us that we didn’t expect! We really trusted Toby because of his extensive knowledge of the local area. We would highly recommend Toby to anyone looking to purchase a home! He is a real person, not a salesman. – Daniel & Joaquina Longwell

Unfortunately when my father passed away we had to sell his home in Everett. Knowing that the market is low I was not too excited about doing this. I felt I needed to interview several agents to get the best options out there because this was not your typical home. It was a passive solar design built in 1980.The first two agents interviewed did not understand the marketing of the home and did not respond with the enthusiasm I felt was needed. I was getting frustrated until a friend recommended I talk to the Barnett team (Toby and his mother Mickie). One thing that impressed me right away was on our first meeting Toby investigated the entire house, including the crawl space while I was going over things with Mickie. Even though this home is a little different and needed a special buyer, Toby and Mickie left with excitement and a promise to get right back to me. While others took over a week to get back to me, Toby and Mickie called me within 48 hours ready to meet. They showed up with a complete file of local home sales in the area, an explanation of what they could do, a full resume, a reasonable price for the home and a contract to get started. I signed the contract and by the next week had signs out front and in the windows along with a superb pictorial of the exterior and interior of the house. Very impressive. We had a qualified buyer in 20 days and closed in the next month. As any sale goes there were a few glitches. Nothing serious but the Barnetts stepped up to the plate and negotiated with everyone involved to make a satisfactory sale. I would not hesitate to recommend Toby and Mickie Barnett to anyone asking for a professional, helpful and caring agent. It was a pleasant adventure. Best regards – Gene Goosman

Toby was a huge help to me and my wife. He climbed through brush, mud, drove long distances and picked me up from the airport. I recommend him to anyone interested in buying property or a house. He became more than a realtor to us, he became a good friend. This is the honest truth. – Jesse & Carrie Picard

I wanted to thank you again so much for all your help with Marta and I with the house here at Kennard….we did one heck of a lot of work and some big changes and were very happy and pleased in the way everything turned out! Your patience and assistance with us was so much appreciated and we both wanted to extend our gratitude to you in making our purchase so smooth and let you know that we both feel you went out of your way for us! If you ever are in the area we’d love to have you stop by and see the changes we made to the place!! Again our thanks for all your help and direction in our home purchase! – Neil & Marta Kanikkeberg

Thanks, Mickie. I feel very fortunate that you were handling the buyers side of this transaction. Your patience, persistence and thoroughness really carried us through. If I can EVER be of help to you in any way I would welcome the chance to help, so never hesitate to call. I will heartily recommend you to anyone that I hear might be thinking of buying or selling in Snohomish County. Please take care and thanks again. – Tom

Great Service! Toby, you’re the BEST! – Erich Sweaney

We are so happy with everything Mickie did for us! Our friends are amazed at how quickly and smoothly our home buying process went and we totally credit Mickie! She was a dream to work with! So kind and friendly while really fighting for us when complications arose. She was there for us every step! – April Wilkins

Toby listened to what I was looking for in my first home purchase. He also offered many suggestions and explained the differences between the varieties of real estate available. I was looking for a fixer upper house that I could live in while I work on it. There were many properties he brought me to. The property I purchased was a short sale which I have learned is not the easiest real estate to purchase. Toby did an excellent job representing me as a buyer and negotiating with the selling agent. – Dave Cox

Mickie you’re the best and you have to come over and see my place now that I’m moved in. Thanks for all you did for me. – Robin Wilson

Toby is the best agent I have worked with in 30 years and a dozen transactions. – Frank Vrechek

[Mickie] thank you so much for everything. – Keith McBroom

[I] would recommend your office to any one buying or selling. – Sarah Koch

Bryan Rocks! – Jamie & Carol Hawk

Thanks Bryan! :) – Anonymous

[Mickie] thank you for your time & effort. – Russ & Shari Bennet

Bryan, was great. He did some searching on his and we came up with a list of houses to look at together. The house Bryan found was just what we were looking for. His communication was great and he had a great knowledge of the area. Thank you Bryan, we will recommend you to friends. – John & Patricia Fromong

Thanks, Mickie; An excellent job of ‘picturing’ the 5410 property! Also, love your comments. I’m so glad we picked you as our realtor. Really. Go forth and prosper. – Jim
