Tell Us Your Story

Kim was fantastic.

She helped guide us through this crazy market and found us the perfect house. Her insight in the real estate market in Olympia was important when making an offer on a house. Kim was always available via phone call or text, this was invaluable when houses go under contract in just a few days. We 100% recommend Kim for all of your real estate needs.

David Conaway

I have worked with Roberta before and found her energetic, extremely knowledgeable, and helpful throughout the process.

So I went to her again to help me find a new home in Olympia. She gets better each time. She can spot the good and the bad about houses, works tirelessly to find the right home, knows the ins and outs of financing, can recommend contractors when necessary, and is just a wealth of the kind of information you need to buy a home. I recommend her without hesitation.

Deborah E Hoyt

Katie was and is the best realtor we could ask for on our adventure on finding a house to call home.

She was very patient with us, kind and courteous, and not afraid to go to bat for us. We thought for sure we would draw thin her patience as this was our first time buying a house and we had so many questions and concerns, but she never made us feel like we were being an inconvenience. She went well out of our way to help us and we couldn't have been happier. We would recommend her in a heartbeat. Thank you for all that you've done for us, Katie. We will never forget you.

Anthony Bambaloff & Jennifer Wroblewski (Line Lead & Forms and Records)

Roberta helped my fiancé and I find our first home during a very difficult time in the market and we had felt like we were never gonna find our home!

Roberta was amazing, she was always there to answer any question we had and there at any time of day or night. She had no problem traveling for us to find the perfect home for us to start our family and home. We was so patient and truly cared. I will always use Roberta and recommend her to anyone who is trying to buy a home. She is the best you will not regret her!

Taylor Wallace

My wife and I highly recommend Katie as a Real Estate professional.

She guided us through the process of selling my Mother's house and property. She explained each step of the process in a manner that was understandable for us. She was always very patient and responsive to our input and questions. She quickly moved through the steps of determining a good listing price, getting the listing advertised and setting up an open house. The house sold quickly and she worked with us through the closing process and was always just a phone call or text away if we had any questions or concerns.

Greg and Lynn Dickey

She always kept us updated on how the two sales were progressing and was a personable, friendly professional who knew the ins and outs of her job very well. You can't go wrong working with Katie!

Mark Boyd

Roberta was very good at finding things we'd like and we found a grat house with her help and her advice was key to getting the place on the West Side.

She has a great knowledge of the area and also of local contractors. Best, Eric Marr

Eric Marr (House Hunting)

Katie did an amazing job with our home buying experience.

My husband and I have been looking for the perfect "forever" home for a few years. We had been through several bidding wars, lost offers, and had lost hope. We had a very particular home setting in mind, and we had just come to the realization that it wasn't going to happen. We met Katie, exchanged contacts, and 6 months later my husband and I were ready to circle back around the crazy housing market. To make a long story short, she was super patient, on top of it, consistent, and pleasant. She road this emotional ride with us for a long while and saw it through; all the way to the end. I am happy to say my husband and I found our "forever" home and I couldn't be happier. Thank you Katie for being you and not giving up on us.

Susanna Samuelson

I’ve known Roberta professionally for over 20 years, and she has been the primary realtor for 3 different transactions during that time.

I can’t say enough to adequately recommend her, but her professional knowledge, personality, communication style and skills, and hard work made every transaction a pleasant outcome. Yes, she’s that good!

Jim Adams

Cari was an excellent realtor.

She was patient, knowledgeable, responsive, good natured, and professional in every manner. We spent days looking at numerous houses, and she never lost her energy or pleasant smile. She was super knowledgeable about the Olympia Lacey Tumwater area, and was willing to show houses that were outside her area as I was not sure where I wanted to buy a house at. The closing was flawless as was all the document processing. Her taste is impeccable. I can see why she came highly recommended, and now I am happy to recommend her to others as well . Thank you Cari!

Audrey Ross

While navigating 5 moves in 5 months with our aging Mom, we needed a hero!

Thanks to Katie the process of selling Moms house was made easy. Professionalism, communication, no pressure, this experience has been very satisfying.

Leslie Buning

Sandi was wonderful to work with.

Easy to communicate with and helped throughout the process of buying my new home. If the need arises I will not hesitate to reach out to her again. Thank you Sandi!


Robin is the most amazing realtor!

!! I cannot say enough about her. She made everything go so smoothly as we were moving from a different state. We needed some services done on the house before moving in, she coordinated everything. She went above and beyond and I cannot express how thankful I am to have had her as my agent.

Magda Hoff

I would highly recommend Katie to anyone needing a realtor.

She is very attentive and responsive. She went out of her way to help me through the home buying process.

Debra McClanahan

Cari has been excellent to work with on both my home selling and home buying experiences.

She is a great communicator, provides sound advice, and quickly responded to my questions during the home buying and home selling process. Cari is also very patient and makes finding your dream home her priority. I would not hesitate to recommend Cari to my friends and family.

Justin Schmal

We have used Roberta on many occasions over the years and I have always found Roberta to be amazing and very knowledgeable.

I would use her for any real estate question's and transactions we may need. Thank you Roberta and a 5 star rating from us.

Rick Jensen (business owner)

We have chosen to have Kim assist us a couple of times for home buying and home sales.

We appreciate her insight, honesty and thoroughness. We value her opinion and feedback. She is always great to work with!

Jacki Bell

Katie works for her customers best interests.

It was a pleasure working with her.

Michael Koehnen

Cari made the selling of my house stress free.

Even with my challenging work schedule and necessary travel, the Whole process was easy. I appreciate her professionalism and help during each step and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor.

Julie Engeman

Mike has been our realtor for our last two houses.

He’s honest, up front, and most importantly experienced. He sold our house in three days and even helped move some heavy items because my husband was in another state for work! He does more than what’s expected from a realtor and truly cares about his clients. We were approached by a lot of agents when we were ready to sell, but we will never go to anyone but Mike. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for realtor who listens and knows what he’s doing.

Diana Simmons (Office Services Manager )

Cari was wonderful to work with.

She helped stage the house and we had an offer the first weekend. When we ran into some issues, she was right there with assistance and advice. I would definitely work with her again.

Karen McLaughlin

Lorena was AWESOME to work with!

She went above and beyond for us. We relocated from another state and were therefore unable to be here locally to handle many of the small things that came up in the home buying process. Lorena really put our minds at ease and knowing that she was available to answer our questions was a huge stress relief. We highly recommend her!

Mona Sanders

Roberta Rudnick was referred to me by more than one person and she is the best.

She was very familiar with the area and the current market. She put together a very comprehensive report in a binder with statistics and graphics regarding comparable properties, local information, marketing strategies, and her professional background so that I could make informed decisions about how to proceed. She was always available to answer any questions I had and didn’t hesitate to offer more information. I will go to her again in the future and I highly recommend her for anyone who needs a realtor.

Sheryl Lotton (Computer Technician)

Lorena worked with us on every step and went the extra mile to make sure that everything that needed to be taken care of before and during the sales process was done.

Very knowledgeable of her profession and the trends of the market.

Brett Wood

Roberta found our house in a market that felt impossible.

She was quick, found listings she knew were of interest to us and within our budget and helped us to act fast. We are so grateful for the home she helped us find and would gladly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell!

Samantha Millar

The process of selling a home with Kim was so easy.

I had a situation where both owners needed to communicate with her separately and she was very accommodating. I also loved the ease of arranging the showings through an app on my phone. All around I would choose Kim again if I needed to sell or buy a home!

Mina Webster

I enjoyed working with Kim.

She is professional and organized. Kim helped with planning when to put our house on the market. She is knowledgeable about the local market and able to help with negotiation. Kim, thank you for all your help in this selling process.

Priscilla Soh

There was no doubt in our minds about selecting Roberta to represent us with our real estate needs!

She has helped us with the purchase and selling of three homes over the last eighteen years. Each of those was an absolute success! Wouldn't even consider another agent. Roberta brings top notch professionalism to the table each and every time! Her experience, availability, attention to detail, and proactiveness are all the qualities we looked for in a realtor. More importantly, Roberta has treated us with that special touch of making us feel as if we were her only clients, while we knew that she was busy working with other clients as well. We highly endorse Roberta Rudnick!

Mike & Christina Nack (Buyer/seller)

Katie is an experienced, thoughtful, and thorough realtor.

My husband and I feel so lucky to have found her. We were living in another state when we bought our property, which brings its own set of anxieties. Katie made the entire experience a breeze and even fun! Thank you, Katie!

Jade Rivera

Wonderful, stress-free and painless house purchase experience!

It was a real pleasure working with Cari. As our Realtor, she helped us find the right house, in the right neighborhood, for the right price. She was patient as we traveled through many cities and looking through numerous different styles and types of homes. Cari is extremely responsive to us and was always available to visit houses with us, despite our very busy work schedule. In short, she was always on our side working to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible. The best part about working with Cari was that she was always focused on answering our questions, giving us good advice, providing extensive knowledge, and finding homes that met our needs. We would recommend her to anyone

Fallon Aiono

Katie is amazing.

She is knowledgeable of the market. Answered our emails, calls, and texts quickly. She had our best interest in mind the whole time.

Kym Greene

Jacqueline Little

There is not enough stars on this page for Sandi Hoffman needs to be 100 starts.

Sandi is an amazing real estate agent, she goes way beyond anyone else. I’ve sold three homes in my life time, I wish Sandi was there for all of them, but fortunately I fist met Sandi when I bought and sold my last home. Everyone needs a Sandi Hoffman in their life. She’s honest, hard working and is 100% there for you. Sandi doesn’t sit back and wait for action to happen when your selling your home, Sandi is the ACTION , she makes things happen, Sandi knows what you need when selling your home, I would recommend Sandi Hoffman to everyone, she is absolutely the best in her field, no joking I’d give her not just 100%, 500% is more like it, like I said earlier in my recommendation of Sandi Hoffman as your agent, if you want the best, you’ll get the best in Sandi.

Gloria Rodgers

Roberta was great to work with from start to finish.

She has the knowledge and experience, that is feel like we were in good Hands at all times. I would work with Roberta anytime!

Matthew Neeley

Investing in a home, especially in a new city, carries a lot of stress with it.

We had a lot of questions and felt uneasy as we began to contemplate this move. We were introduced to Lorena right away and we began to feel at ease. Lorena was attentive and responsive and had genuine empathy for what we were feeling. In addition, she is a true professional and does not tickle your ears. She is looking out for your best interest and you feel that from moment one. We felt no judgement, or pressure in this process. We are so happy we met Lorena and are grateful that she was a part of this chapter of our lives!

Scott Sanders (Partner)

As first time home buyers we were really thankful for Diane’s expertise and patience during a challenging market.

Diane was punctual, great at communicating, and determined to find us a house. After nearly a year of searching we found a great home and we are so happy! We highly recommend Diane.

Chloe Pearsall (Marketing )

We have used Roberta for several of our real estate needs since living in the Pacific Northwest and she has always been kind but firm in her work.

She won’t ever make you feel pressured and always offers insight with any questions you may have. I would recommend her 100%!

Jessica Locke

Sandi has helped us buy a house, sell a house, and buy property.

She always goes above and beyond. We would never go with anyone else!

Meagan Caster

I would totally recommend Lorena as your agent.

You couldn't ask for a more knowledgeable, caring and professional agent to help you sell your home. Lorena hand guided us with all the many steps needed to sell our home - after living in our home for 37 years there were many things we didn't know and she was very patient and prompt in answering all our questions and concerns. Lorena helped staged our home which I believe helped us get top dollar.

Lyn Matson

It's been a wonderful experience working with Kim under this stormy real estate market.

She made a typical stressful home buying process much smoother and did a great job in negotiation between parties. I was well educated and mostly worry free during the process under her care. Thank you Kim!

Laney Hsieh

Buying a house is one of the most important decisions in your life.

Having someone like Lorena is a blessing. She understood our needs and helped us through the whole process and made it so much easier. It was easy to communicate with her and always responded fast. She has passion for what she does. I will highly recommend her.

Mari Navarro (District Manager )

Great positive reviews are what drew me to Roberta… especially prior client's praise for her hands-on managing of a sale for an out-of-town seller.

For me, she was invaluable, especially during the pandemic because she coordinated all the various tests, arranged servicing, hired repairs which were completed promptly and with reasonable costs , and she personally handled actions that required contacting businesses, or the County. She treated the sale of my home as if it was her own home in terms of promoting its best features which resulted in the best offers. The whole sales process was painless and almost effortless for me and my home received multiple bids and sold for double-digit percent increase in listing price.

Ellynda Giles

Cari was excellent to work with.

She was very prompt in responding to our questions and keeping us updated on the progress. Our home was an estate sale which was worrisome to us but Cari handled everything and really made this whole process as smooth as possible! I would definitely recommend Cari to anyone looking for real estate help. Not only was she knowledgeable she was also very kind and a pleasure to work with.

Justin Dhaenens

Roberta is hands down the best real estate agent in Thurston County.

She’s a pleasure to work with and will do whatever it takes to make buying a home easier for you.

Adam Rudnick

Roberta has an unmatched eye for detail.

From decluttering the house, to interior and exterior photos, to staging the rooms to show to their best advantage, to providing booties, masks, and hand sanitizer for clients, Roberta and her team offered expert guidance and support. I highly recommend her real estate services to anyone selling or purchasing property in the area!

Bonnie Long

Sandi Hofmann is the most reliable, knowledgeable, thorough real estate agent I have ever worked with.

My husband and I have sold 6 homes and never experienced the kind of service Sandi provides. She helps with every aspect of selling your home to assure you get the best price. Thank you so much, Sandi!

Kathy Porterfield (Administrator )

Selling our home of 29 years was a life changing experience for us.

Kim was the best person to help us through this process. Every step of the way she gave us her Professional guidance and she was spot on every time. She always gave me a sense of calm when I felt stressed . Her expertise was a 10 plus.

Barbara Eyles (Paralegal)

Roberta has always been so helpful for every purchase we've made since 2014.

Whether it's residential or an investment property she is always ready to do the due diligence. Her advice is invaluable. She is so communicative and responds very quickly to questions. If you want a broker/realtor that you know is working for YOU, Roberta is your pick!!!

Melissa Bluestein-Rogers (ARNP)

Roberta became "our realtor" years ago when helping us buy our first home.

When it came time to sell, she was laser focused on getting top dollar. She drew on her experience to make recommendations that increased the sales price, made it a point to listen to our desires and assisted with decisions (e.g. she came to our home when we were picking new carpet). The only bad thing is that we moved out of the area and won't be able to use her help again!

Lewis Wright

Lorena was wonderful to work with she helped explain how the whole process would go.

Also went above and beyond to get us the best price. We really appreciated her hard work and experience!

Brian Alderman

We were retiring and moving across the state, Kim walked through our home and gave us a few ideas to promote the home.

Kim gave us a very accurate and up to date market comparison along with a recommended price point. We took her advice and our home was under contract with in 10 days of being on the market over Christmas. The staging of our home was a great way to show a home when you have moved out. Thank you Kim for all the great service.

Jim Henry (Septic System Designer)

I've worked with Roberta Rudnick several times, and she has delivered A+ service.

Thanks, Roberta!

Bruce Whitney

We have used Lorena 3 times now in selling and buying and selling again.

We love her. This last house sell she came to our house, helped us stage the house, helped us load up the Uhaul and than came back later to help us clean so we could be out sooner. She is amazing and always has a beautiful smile and truly goes the extra mile!!!

Tiffany Tofte

We deeply appreciate Roberta Rudnick's understanding, skills and abilities in helping us transition from our home of 40 years to a newer home a few miles away.

Timing was tricky, as we needed to sell the old home before buying a new one. Attracting a buyer for the "old" home while finding an available, desirable "new" home was an amazing accomplishment. Roberta's patience, encouragement and persistence in finding just the right situation for us was amazing. We are forever grateful and highly recommend her services.

Dianne Pastore

We've utilized Lorena Evankovich on multiple home listings and transactions through the years and she always goes above and beyond.

Not only is she a great person, but very conscientious and thorough with all of the little details that help to promote the sale of a property up to the last minute. I would highly recommend Lorena to anybody, anytime! Thank you for all your hard work and assistance through this process, Lorena!

Randy Gandara (Owner)

Katie was persistent and thoughtful while helping me sift through listings until we found the perfect home!

She was always prompt with responses and filing of paperwork. Katie made the whole transaction stress free and fun!

Colin Christensen

Sandi was extremely helpful in selling a home I had just inherited.

She such a positive person!. That really helped me in my situation. I appreciated her energy, knowledge, great personality and commitment to getting the house sold. When I'm ready to relocate and sell my house, I'll be contacting Sandi again. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Andy Mac

Guardian Angel With the passing of my Mother, my home suddenly was up for sale.

With no place to stay, I needed a place to go. So... I lost my Mother (I am not mentally all here). Displaced from my home (30 days or forgot my belongings). Finances (Really... Everything I had was used to care for my parents before they passed). And my own physical disabilities (There is a list ..,. ). I could go on with all the wooes but when the phone rang and the offer to help was given she had no idea of what she was in for. This did not stop her. She jumped in and immediately helping narrowing the search to fit size needed, the conditions require, money available, and in the time. Than a better place. I do not know how, but she finds a place. She walked me through the paperwork (well I crawled). She supervised the home inspection, arranged the finances? Seriously all I needed to do was authorize it morn my mother and use the tissue (that she provided). Bottom line I am in my new house, relatively sane and trying to recover both physically and emotionally from the whole thing. I can not honestly give enough praise for her she literally saved my life.... Trying to write this is becoming harder because of the realization of what she did. Not just an Agent but an Angle.

James Russel Caron

Patricia is always great to work with.

Attention to detail and always makes sure you understand everything. She will go out of her way to make sure you are satisfied. Thanks for all your help. Kent

Kent Winger

Sandi was a breeze to work with.

She was very responsive and patient with all my questions. She went beyond the call of duty to make sure my property was presented in its best light. I would most definitely recommend her to help you sell your home.

Margaret Girski

Katie has done a great job representing us during our home purchase.

She stepped in and helped us navigate through many unknown areas during the purchase and explained each step to us such as the offer, the inspection, the negotiations and worked with our mortgage provider to keep the process moving forward. She is an excellent realtor and we are so happy she represented us.

Andy Johnson

From start to finish Kim Rucker was very professional, kept us informed of every detail and answered our many questions quickly and efficiently.

Our transaction was during COVID and involved us moving from another state and relocating to Washington. Kim was patient with all our requests and we highly recommend her for your real estate needs. Thank you Kim for helping us get our dream home!

Bob Merrick

Sandi did an amazing job.

She was always very attentive to myself and the process. She also made sure that I received a fair price for what my home was worth. I very much forward to working with Sandi in the future when I am ready to move on to my next home.

Steven Severson (Client)


Robin made a very stressful and difficult experience so much easier. I can't recommend her enough. She handled my home's "unique" challenges

Camilla Bryner (Seller)

Katie went above and beyond to help us sell our house in a hurry.

We were in a bind with the military transferring us sooner than anticipated and she negotiated with the buyers so we wouldn't sell at a loss. She made the tough calls and networked with others in her field in order to give us the best advice & service. She was honest and transparent throughout the entire process. She took care of literally everything and made it as easy as possible for us to sell and move within a short timeframe. She is extremely professional and knowledgeable as well as trustworthy, kind and personable. We couldn't think more highly of her. We highly recommend her for all your real estate needs.

Darryl Means

If you're buying a home, you need this person!

Ami has a magical touch. All the houses she sent were spot on in prerequisites, but the second one in her list was cozy, cute, needed no work and was exactly what I wanted. There was no long months of searching here and there. I never had to send suggestions. Her magical touch didn't end there. She was super effective at working with the seller to help me beat out other bidders. I was even able to get the buyer concessions I needed. "But Wait! There's More" She had ready-to-hand great inspectors and movers. She walked me through the entire process. There were no surprises. She was great about keeping me up-to-date and educating me on what to expect. She was very personal, very hands on, very knowledgeable, and very professional. I could not be anymore pleased. Thank you Ami! You're amazing!!!


I recently bought a home and my Real Estate Agent, Cari Schwison, was instrumental in helping with the process.

From the first day she was knowledgeable, patient, engaging and fun to work with. She’s a great communicator and worked in conjunction with the Mortgage Company and Seller to obtain the best possible contract for me. I would highly recommend her to family, friends and anyone looking for their next home!

Susan Fulcher

I have worked with Sandi before and she is wonderful.

She goes way beyond what is required of her and was with me every step of the way and even helped clean and set up the home to make it look great. She is very reliable and dependable and I have recommended her to other people.


Kim is wonderful to work with.

She helped us buy & sell 9 years ago so naturally we contacted her to sell our house this time as well. She has good knowledge of the market, pricing, values, and 'street smarts.' She knows how to attract many buyers. There were times things weren't going as planned and she both calmed us and took care of it. We highly recommend Kim for buying & selling. Her & Roberta even staged our fairly empty house to give optimal showing ideas/vision. It was sold in 2 days. Thank you Kim for all you do! You da best.

Dave & Roberta Hamilton

Katie helped me find the perfect first home!

As a new home buyer who knows nothing about the home buying process, Katie walked me through all the steps. She was easy to reach, quick to respond, and very knowledgeable. Katie made the home buying process very enjoyable and I would recommend her to all of my family and friends.

Kayley Bass

I just so happened to find Roberta through wanting to view a home she had listed and she offered to show it to us since we didn’t have a realtor ourselves.

The moment my husband and I met her, I felt at ease and knew that I wanted to work with her — we had our condo to sell. Once we told her that, she came by to our home with an analysis of our neighborhood and what to expect. She is very thorough and so knowledgeable! She was able to find a buyer without even listing our home and having to deal with showings, since at the time I was heavily pregnant and caring for a toddler. Once that deal was completed, she showed us other homes and eventually helped us secure a spot in a new construction neighborhood in an ideal location. She also provided us with recommendations for contractors, plumbers, and home inspectors to make sure we were being serviced by top notch professionals. That was much appreciated, as everyone knows, since it’s quite the daunting task. Fast forward two and a half years, we’ve received orders and need to quickly sell our new home. Roberta, again, came over with an analysis and a game plan to sell. The overall process was so easy and since we are Covid-times, she helped calm my fears with showings by making sure to provide items to protect ourselves and potential buyers when entering our home. If all this doesn’t sway you to her side, let me say this: she listed our home a day after taking pictures (which were professional and showcased our home beautifully), and that first day we had multiple showings and offers. By the end of the week, we received countless offers with many being over listing price. Essentially, Roberta was able to list AND get our home under contract in SEVEN DAYS. It was amazing and I am very grateful at what she did for me and my family! I hope I am able to find a realtor as dedicated to her clients as she is in our new location.

N. Braithwaite

Katie was outstanding.

....patient, communicative and determined. She went above and beyond in our search for a new home. She listened to what we were looking for and stuck with us for almost a year in a very competitive market until we found the right home. Never once did she waiver or get impatient with us, and always let us drive the process. She knew I was out of town for a week during closing and scheduled, and met all of the requested contractors and inspectors to ensure we knew exactly what we were buying. I cannot say enough about her. If you are looking for the right realtor to sell or buy at any price range, look no've found her.

Matt Samuelson

Working with Lorena from out of state was easy.

She is knowledgeable, professional and very helpful. She made certain that all our questions were addressed promptly and ensured that our home purchase moved forward quickly and efficiently.

Betty A Mirzayi

Katie did an outstanding job every step of the way and absolutely went above and beyond my expectations.

She is considerate, positive, knowledgeable, and solution driven. This was hands down a positive and smooth real estate experience with Katie. I would recommend her to anyone for any real estate needs.

Liz Skill

Katie was exceptional.

My husband and I had been looking for a home for quite some time. We had very particular things we were looking for in a home and we were in the middle of a HOT housing market. To say the least, this was definitely a journey for us. Katie stuck with us every step of the way and never gave up hope, even though at times we did. We finally found our forever home and couldn't be happier. Thank you Katie for seeing this through with us. Forever grateful.

Susanna Samuelson

Katie went out of her way, literally, to help me find a great home and property that was nearly 50 miles away from her home office.

She was always there to answer questions, and if she didn't have the information I requested she quickly found what I needed to know. I highly recommend Katie, and will contact her again if I'm ever in need of real estate services. Thanks, Katie! It was a pleasure working with you.

William Purtee

Katie took us through the home-buying process with a combination of patience, grace, competence, humor and professionalism.

In the 5 months it took us to find our home, we never once felt pressured, and the home we ended up with is truly our perfect place. She literally drove through a snow storm to show it to us, and that persistence and dedication is a big part of why we got our house in a very competitive market. Earlier in our search, she also pointed out warning signs when a house had issues that we were blind to. She grew up here and really knows the area, and also has a strong understanding of the current trends of the market. She advised us well on exactly what offer would place us just above the other bids. We dearly hope we'll be here for a good long while, but if we ever need to buy or sell a home again, we would use Katie's services in a heartbeat.

Jacob Voll

She waited patiently for my son to get through the process of buying my Mom's house.

Always was there when I needed help with the process. Definitely a highly qualified real estate professional. Will use her again when in need of her services.

Rick Horton (Mr)

Sandi was better than amazing!

She was so helpful in many different areas, including helping me get the house show ready. She helped with touch ups and moving of furniture. She was very good at explaining things in a way that was easy for me to understand. She got my house on the market and we had multiple offers so fast! She’s a 10 out of 10 for sure, and I HIGHLY recommend!

Katrina Turner

Katie helped us sell two properties and did an amazing job.

She communicated very well and always kept us updated on how the two sales were progressing. She is a true professional who knows her industry and market very well. You can't go wrong working with Katie!

Mark Boyd

Roberta was so great to work with.

She was always absolutely for all of our questions and concerns and provided us with all the information needed to make well informed decisions. It was a pleasure!

Katie Butler

Cari Schwisow was a great pleasure to work with throughout the property search and the buying process.

She is very efficient, professional, punctual, and was very understanding of our specific property needs. Her very pleasant and positive personality made every face-to-face and phone conversation with her an event to look forward to. If you need a great real estate agent, contact Cari.

Russell & Renee Bertch

Cari Schwisow is the best realtor in Thurston County, hands down.

She is professional, organized, great with communication and most of all ... she is patient! We could not have done this without her. I would recommend her 100% to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is absolutely amazing to work with!

Jami Fordice

After selling RealEstate for 31 years and knowing a lot of Realtors.

Sandi is my go to when my family needs to buy or sell. She is honest, responsive and has integrity. I hope to do more with her in the future.

Jack Sherman (Retired Realtor)

Lorena did a FANTASTIC job.

She was efficient, knowledgable and easy to work with. I feel like she made this entire process easy. She represented the buyers as well which went very smoothly and we got to know the new owners of our home and feel very happy with them and with the whole process. Thank you very much Lorena!

Tom Helpenstell

It was a pleasure working with Katie to find our new home.

Thank you Katie.

Jim Peterson

Sandi is the very best at what she does.

Friendly and good at keeping me informed of what was going on with the sale of my house. She worked hard getting my house ready for showing. She is the best real estate agent I've ever worked with.

Kathleen Pickett

Katie was very helpful for us in purchasing our condo.

She assisted us by providing an updated list of properties which met our requirements but did not pressure us. She was always on time when we requested her presence and she researched and answered any questions or issues we did not understand or did not know how to resolve. She knew who to contact and what information we would need to have ready to complete required documents. We were able to close without leaving our home as it was all done pretty much online and she followed up after we purchased the condo. She looked out for our interests and we feel she got us the best deal and we are so thankful. She was recommended to us from a co-worker who also had a very good experience and we could not be happier with her service. We would definitely use her services again and recommend her to anyone needing a competent and professional real estate agent to purchase or sell a home.

Ken Frohning

Attentive & Patient Attentive & Patient Robin was amazing to work with.

She sent me consistent leads for over a year until we found the perfect property. One we found the property, Robin then made the entire experience incredibly smooth and helped guide us through our very first purchase. Thank you for your patience and your help! Verified by RateMyAgent

Arielle Keller (buyer)

I came in from out of state to sell my mother's house.

Cari understood all the constraints I was under, including minimizing my trips to Olympia, not spending too much to fix up the house, getting the house emptied, shipping some items to NY, etc. It fell on her to keep an eye on the estate sale, donation, house and carpet cleaning, etc., and she was very reliable and very helpful when I was not around. She was very good also at keeping me informed and being available to answer my questions along the way. At the beginning, she prepared a good market analysis and provided a notebook of resources that was professional. As a woman, I wanted to work with another female, who was respectful and collegial. Cari was an excellent find, and I would recommend her highly.

Susan Hakala

Robin is simply an OUSTANDING Realtor.

She is well versed in the area, honest and so very helpful with her expert advice. Aside from all the great support we got from her, we especially valued her expert knowledge in Shellfish and tidelands. She is simply an expert in tidelands and helped us so much in assuring we found the right property for shell fishing activities. We worked with Robin on finding one property for years and her patience and resolution to find the perfect spot never wavered. 100% recommend her without the slightest of hesitation.

Tim Labatte (Buyer)

Katie goes the mile for you.

I would tell all my family and friends about Katie and I wouldn't buy or sell again without Katie as my Agent. If you want someone that will work hard for you to get you what you're looking for call Katie Parkinson.

Shelby Swete

Sandi is the best real estate agent.

She goes above and beyond to work with my schedule and to make things easy for me. I have bought two homes with Sandi and just sold my first house. I wouldn’t work with anyone else. She’s absolutely the best!

Maureen C

After getting word I had a job transfer from California to Olympia, my wife and I needed to get living accommodations taken care of asap.

Lorena came highly recommended from a friend and she did not disappoint at all. She went above and beyond everything we expected. She scheduled tours of 10 homes in throughout Olympia,Tumwater, and Lacey. We did that in less than 8 hours as she explained everything about the area, from shopping to schools and attractions. We ended up putting in an offer and she was there every step of the way through the escrow process. We were definitely in good hands as she represented us well .

Marc Nobida

We had one of those sales that everything that could go wrong did go wrong (Lender issues), but sincerely Katie was the glue that held it all together with her calming reassurance, depth of knowledge, and willingness to fight for us when necessary.

She set up weekly meetings to keep up us to date and answer our questions and concerns. She also maintained communication with all the moving parts that come with a sale. I would recommend her hands down to anyone who asked for a realtor.

Zach McKissick (Director of Operations NATO AWACS Training)

Katie was great explaining the steps into buying our first home.

She was there to step in & help us when other parties weren't communicating with us. She was responsive to our many questions through the process and was professional each step of the way. I can't recommend Katie enough!

Patricia is very knowledgable and helpful.

She takes the time to make sure you understand all of the aspects of home buying. That was especially helpful to me as a first time home buyer. Patricia is experienced and knows how to win a deal. I don't know if I would be a home owner without her expertise in this tough market. I feel so blessed to have her as my realtor.

She also recommended a number of great contractors to help us develop the site for building.Robin is professional, experienced and trustworthy.We highly recommend her as a real estate agent.

Norma Sellers (Buyer)

We couldn't be happier with our experience with Katie Parkinson.

Beginning in January 2017, Katie was responsive to email communication as my wife and I ?planted the seed? of our interest in home buying. We learned quickly of her great knowledge of the Olympia/Lacey/Tumwater areas and found her to work tirelessly to find us properties that would meet our family's needs. She listened carefully to the ?wish lists? of both my wife and I and was available with with very little notice to visit the properties. We appreciated the way she ?gave us our space? and never did we feel rushed or under pressure to make a decision. Being 8 months pregnant when we began our search, we are happy to share that Katie helped us find on my wife's due date what became our wonderful new home. We are confident that Katie's calm, kind, honest, and genuine professional will make her the perfect fit for anyone needing help with buying or selling their home.

Carrie Dunning

Roberta was helpful and active throughout the house search and purchasing process, from reviewing listings to strategizing and communicating with the seller's agent.

Diane made things simple for us during the home buying process.

We appreciated the quick and timely responses, her proactive approach to providing us answers to questions we were thinking of, and her flexibility and organization as we coordinated multiple house hunting excursions.

I absolutely recommend Mike Barber to handle all of your real estate needs.

He is extremely thorough, reliable, and full of resources. He is always quick to return a call or text, follows up on leads, and sends appropriate listings to match your search criteria. He went above and beyond for me on pulling county records and permits for a property I was looking at. You will not be disappointed when you work with Mike!

Angela Hilliard (Forensic Scientist )

Kim Rucker handled the sale of my house and I was glad for her help.

She was relaxed and kept me from feeling apprehensive about the process. I appreciated that she has been an Olympia Real Estate Agent for a number of years and therefore has built up a number of helpful contacts in the business.

Rosemary Lowry

Best realtor that I have worked with.

Sherman Davis

Buying or selling a home is not something that most people do frequently and we include ourselves in that group.

Fortunately, we linked up with Robin Downey early on in the process and were amazed at how tirelessly she worked to help us get into the right place. It wasnt a big purchase and it had complexities, but nothing was an obstacle to Robin. Her knowledge, her high level of service, her creativity and her good humor throughout made the whole process very enjoyable. We were very lucky to have a partner like Robin help us through the purchase of our new home. A top drawer professional!

Rick Levesque (Buyer)

Mara de Perio


Ami went far above and beyond in the preparation of sale for my current home, spending dozens of hours of labor and materials. She was able to find tenants when sale fell through and I was still able to move into my new place with no contingency. Ami is very responsive and knowledgeable, and definitely has gone way above any other realtor I've worked with

Benjamin Gunderson

Roberta is the only real estate agent I would work with.

She has assisted my family and I with all our home sales and purchases over the past 30 years. Roberta is not only professional with a depth of knowledge of Thurston County but also fun to work with. She is a true client advocate. Most recently Roberta worked with me on the sale of both my own and my family's home. She provided a thorough and fair market analysis of both properties, gave me tips on what to improve or repair, and then staged and marketed the houses. We sold both houses at fair prices in today's market. I have and will continue to recommend Roberta to my friends, family and any one who asks.

Linda Susan Grant

Roberta has done an excellent job in the transition of my home.

Her outstanding performance in her work is very professional and satisfying to her clients. In any purchases in the housing markets I do highly recommend Roberta. Always cheerful, productive, professional, and there for any questions you may have, any time of day. Thank you Roberta for your awsom job!

Roberta Rudnick

Katie was the ideal realtor.

Giving advice asking questions about how we would like things to go. She came over and talked with us about what we needed to do , in order for us to proceed with the sale of our home. She made us feel comfortable and relaxed when we talked with her. From the time Katie handed us the cookies till the time she put the sold sign up she was there to help us with all of our needs. We highly recommended her for your realtor and have given card to our neighbors.

Sharon Pickard

Roberta has helped my family on a few sales and is amazing every time.

.. I had a lot of emotional and financial ties to the house I sold and she was so patient, understanding and knowledgeable through the whole process. I'm sure we will have the opportunity to work with her again, and I will be recommending her to everyone I know! Thanks Roberta!!!

Renee Gilsdorf

You would be absolutely LUCKY to get to work with Roberta.

She is hands down the best at what she does. Everyone in town knows her, and people prefer to work with Roberta over other agents. We've bought two houses with her and will never work with anyone else. She is calm and collected and makes a stressful process feel easy. I can't say enough good things!

She was always responsive to any question I had regarding the process. I would recommend Kim to anyone looking to sell or buy a house.

Jenifer Wasnock

I have worked with Roberta Rudnick for over 30 years and could not recommend a real estate professional more.

Roberta has an extensive knowledge of the real estate markets in the South Sound and has always given our company and me personally honest advice.

Rich Holbrook (President)

My wife and I were told that our agent being difficult was the reason offers on 3 different houses were rejected.

We really wanted the 3rd house. We fired our agent, a friend sent Diane to us, the homeowner was willing to deal, and we closed and moved in last week. Diane was fantastic and made it happen. We owe her a very big thanks. I would give more stars if I could.

Joseph Guerrieri (Construction Foreman )

Lorena was awesome during the whole process of selling my home.

She communicated well and kept me updated on house prices nearby so I can make adjustments base on the market. She was on time for all her appointments and gave great suggestions in staging the house for sell. She is eager to go the extra step in helping me get all my documents in order and was very patient with me. I will highly recommend her to my friend's in WA to use her service in buying or selling their home. Thank you Lorena!!

Ampy Santos (Owner)

Very easy to get things started, also to get thing finalized!

Very easy to get things started, also to get thing finalized! We were looking at houses in the area we wanted by ourselves at first. One of the houses we looked at real estate agent that was setting up appointments for a tour. Robin helped my husband set up a time that met our needs. She was on top of the forms that we needed to fill out and some good advice on what to do next. We didnt get that house but when we found another house we were interested in she had a good grip on what we needed to do even though she was so far on vacation. It was a timely matter and she got the job done for us. Now we are buying this house thanks to her and how quick she gets her job done.! She was so friendly to us all the time, she let us know what the next steps were when it came to filling out papers. Even though after we bought our house she is still engaged and is very excited for us. We really think shes such a good agent to work with! Verified by RateMyAgent

Mary Patricia Hilario (Buyer)

Roberta has been my realtor for 35 years!

So there is a great relationship with Roberta... She always takes my calls and answers my questions and some times talks me out of doing some not so good ideas!! I can't say enough good things about Roberta! I can say if you want you personal, kind and knowledgeable Realtor Call Roberta!

Jerry Holbrook

We had a wonderful experience, for such a stressful event, with Kim as our agent.

She has a calming demeanor and is proficient at the process of selling and buying a home. Kim was a great at listening to our questions and needs. She always provided answers and responds very timely. I will recommend Kim to our friends and family as their real estate agent.

Melissa Bovenkamp

Lorena Evankovich is the BEST!

I was always worried going to the process of buying a home again because I can’t handle the thought of stress. But Lorena makes it so smooth and easy transition for us. She is very knowledgeable of what she is doing and always on time of our appointments. When she says she will be there to meet you …. She is there on time! Very professional and kind . In behalf of my Family and I , we strongly recommend her. She did a wonderful job for us. Thank you Lorena, from the bottom of our Heart! The Bond’s

Florisa Bond

From start to finish, Kim and Roberta made it easy to sell my house.

They took care of all the details, including staging it so expertly. It sold very fast! I highly recommend NextHome NW.


Katie was wonderful to work with.

She was super available and friendly for the home search, showing 4 homes on the first day out, one of which I bought! She explained our contract clearly and answered all my questions. She was timely in all my contacts with the seller and the seller's agent. Closing went smoothly and I would work with her again in real estate. Thanks Katie for your professionalism and hard work. -Steve

Steve Lee

Kim is awesome!

We sought her out to be our seller's agent when we found a house in the hot Olympia market and wanted a great pro in our corner as we negotiated the deal. She is thoughtful and thorough, no-nonsense, calm, and friendly. She understood the timing and the pressures at the initial offer stage, and we successfully won our bid against other competing bid. We identified a drainage issue at the new house in the "11th hour," and she was instrumental in working with the seller's agend to repair that issue before we closed. Also, she helped us locate reliable. competent tradespeople to do work on our current home, too. We bought a house using her 9 years ago, and had a great experience with her, then, as well.

Travis Hoppe

We have always been very pleased with the professional service Katie provided us with both the purchase and selling.

She is very easy to contact and responds instantly to texts, calls and emails. We will definitely call Katie with any future real estate transactions.

Kenneth Frohning

Katie is an excellent realtor!

She makes the whole process easy and makes sure to factor in your wants and needs to find your dream home!

Karen Geiger

Ami was absolutely fantastic!

! Planned to just start "getting a feel" of the market and found our perfect home that same weekend! She worked closely with me when my husband unexpectedly deployed during our closing and we still closed on time! Wonderful experience!!

Brittney Chiasson

Lorena will work very hard on your behalf to get you the best price as a buyer or seller.

She goes the extra mile in getting your home ready for sale or negotiating on the best price and process for your home purchase. Lorena has the energy and commitment to work tirelessly one your behalf. She has 20 years of experience in the real estate industry and knows her stuff. She is patient and understands the needs of her clients in the process. She also is very likeable and has great people skills. I would highly recommend Lorena if you are considering buying or selling a home.

Dennis Matson

Roberta has helped my husband and I several times throughout the years and she’s has always been attentive, communicative and very helpful throughout the process of selling or buying a home.

She’s great and we will always recommend her!

Kim Harris

Kim is truly the best!

My first experience with Kim was 12 years ago, for the purchase of my first house. Although my budget was small, she spent so much time with me. She talked me through every step. Her advice along the way has stuck with me since. The experience Kim has, makes her an invaluable resource! She made me comfortable to take my time; never a rush to find the house and be done. It felt like she had all the time in the world and would be OK if I never picked one. Fast forward, 12 years... She has now helped me with 4 buying/selling transactions. When we began the search for a home in another state, it was difficult to think of working with anyone else. Kim even helped with that! Her recommendation was very close to the standards she has set, and made for a successful experience. We are now in the process of selling, what we thought could be, our forever home. It's a very different experience and Kim has been extremely compassionate. I could go on, but will just recap. I would HIGHLY recommend Kim for all of your realtor needs.

Sara Specht (business owner )

Sandi made the task of buying a new place easy.

She was very helpful and went way beyond what I thought her part of the process was. She makes a very personal connection and follows through on any problems that might occur. I hope to never move again, but if I do, I will find Sandi and use her services again.

Joann Sanchez

I highly recommend Sandi Hofmann.

She goes above and beyond, and is always there to lend a hand. She will be our “forever” real estate agent.

Kimberly Peace

Kim help us buy our house in 2012.

For my wife there was no question who would help sell our house this year. I'd recommend Kim to anyone buying or selling in the Oly area.

John Rowland (Home owner)

Sandi Hofmann went above and beyond to find us the perfect home with everything we wanted and my husband Danny Cichy and I could not be any happier.

She is a very good realator and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home. She is there every step of the way.

Wendy E Cichy

We met Ami at an open house that she was hosting and right away, we felt like her interest to help our situation was heartfelt.

After a few outings of searching for other properties, my husband and I felt like she was a long time friend. Not only did she eventually find the right property for us, but we feel that she went over and beyond what a normal agent might do to make the deal happen with patience and understanding. We are very pleased with her performance as a professional, but more than that, we have a new friendship that hopefully, will last a very long time.

Elizabeth Parsi

Kim made my first home buying process both simple and rewarding.

She was consistently available and encouraging at every step. She is also very well networked in the area, and helped me find various people to help me with everything I needed to fix up my new home. I plan to use Kim for future home purchases and sales :)

Mara Machulsky (Lobbyist)

Roberta is the best realtor you can ever come by.

Her industry knowledge is phenomenal. While I know she has other clients when working with me, you'll never notice it. She gives you her full attention and works non-stop and all hours to get the best deal for her client. She always makes sure to provide me the best the industry has with staffing and rates with loan officers, title companies and home inspectors. The process as a whole is not stressful knowing she takes the lead. This is my sixth real estate transaction with her, and I look forward to more!

Zack Midles

Roberta was very thorough and very easy to work with.

Her advice was spot on, and she was very helpful in lining up workers to prepare the condo for sale. Her staging of the unit helped it attract a successful full price offer within 24 hours of going on sale. I am very pleased.

Peter Swensson

Lorena is our favorite realtor for a reason.

She works exceptionally hard for her clients, she is incredibly knowledgeable about the region and the local market, and she has a great network of resources who can help get your property in shape to capture the most market value. We've been using Lorena for years and we recommend her to anyone interested in buying or selling in this area.

Bob McGinley (Executive)

I've known Sandi Hoffman for 23 years while owning our HVAC business.

She has always been the best agent at selling mobile homes for sure. She goes beyond the call of duty when selling mobile and manufactured homes. She even washed our windows even though we told her we wanted to do it. Sandi is not afraid of rolling up her sleeves and getting your home sold quickly.

Jessica Pettit

We have worked with Michael on the purchase and sale of several properties.

He is through, candid, ethical and "really good". He goes above and beyond what the typical realtor would do regarding ,not only the transaction, but help and support with technical, regulatory, and improvement issues. He is one of the few realtors I have dealt with that places our needs above getting the transaction done. He brings up issues and disclosures that are important when making a decision on a property.

Thomas and Shana Engel (Home buyer)

Sandy is wonderful.

Have worked with for at least 15 years maybe 20. She is very patient and always positive.

Bob Steger (Mr)

Roberta is the only agent I will ever use.

I usually like to be in charge of everything but I just let Roberta advise me with my purchase/sale transactions and I listened. It all worked out perfectly. She is a true professional.

Deb J

Roberta is a phenomenal real estate agent!

Without hesitation she jumped in and gave us a number she would list our house at, provided pictures and staging and got it on the market quickly. She knows the local market inside and out and was able to list it on Wednesday, have 8 offers to share with us on Saturday and we closed within 2 weeks after that. I can’t recommend her highly enough. You won’t be disappointed with her service!!

Melissa Bell

Katie is wonderful!

As a first-time homebuyer I had so many questions and Katie answered them all. She is friendly, knowledgeable, quick to respond to texts, and helped me buy my perfect house!

Carol Dunn

Sandi is an amazing realtor who goes above and beyond to help you sell your home!

She worked tirelessly to get my house ready to sell and was so easy to work with even though we were all the way in Germany. Sandi took care of all the little details that I couldn't think about managing without her help and expertise. She is kind and hardworking and will make sure your house sells quickly. I can't recommend her enough.

I am so pleased to write this recommendation for Roberta Rudnick.

She went above and beyond to help us find our home in WA. When our first purchase did not pass inspection Roberta offered to facetime us in California to find another house. She handled all the details, advocated for us, and made us feel very comfortable with the home buying process. The next time we need an agent we will certainly use Roberta again!

My experience working with Katie to sell my home was excellent.

She was confident, professional, and capable every step of the way. She was available and successful at solving any problems that arose, and made the process very easy for me. Thank you, Katie, for leading me successfully through this process.

? I've bought and sold more than half a dozen houses. Getting a house ready for sale is a challenge. From decluttering to staging, if it's not done right, the house may not sell well or even at all. I'm grateful that I had Lorena as my agent because she helped me with everything. Thanks to her professionalism and work ethic, with her assistance, we got my house into shape quickly and effortlessly. The house sold almost immediately for a very good price. I've worked with lots of real estate agents, but Lorena is extraordinary.

There was no doubt in our minds about selecting Roberta to represent us with our real estate needs!

She has helped us with the purchase and selling of three homes over the last eighteen years. Each of those was an absolute success! Wouldn't even consider another agent. Roberta brings top notch professionalism to the table each and every time! Her experience, availability, attention to detail, and proactiveness are all the qualities we looked for in a realtor. More importantly, Roberta has treated us with that special touch of making us feel as if we were her only clients, while we knew that she was busy working with other clients as well. We highly endorse Roberta Rudnick!

Evinrude neck was just the best agent ever full transparency and such a hard worker I highly recommend him to do the best job to move your property.

As Executor of my brother/sister-in-law’s extensive estate life quickly become way more complicated for me.

It seemed every step along the way was tough. Needing to sell one of the rental properties I contacted Kim. I really wasn’t looking forward to the process. Well, Kim was like a breath of fresh air. At first contact Kim took control (at my request), worked with my tenant, made arrangements for cleaning and repair. She listed, sold and finalized the sale in a very short time. I would never sell or buy a property without Kim’s Help. I have already recommended Kim to several of my associates.

Robert Huber (Estate Manager)

Roberta did an incredible job for us as our realtor as we were looking to buy our first home in the Olympia area.

We were completely new to the process and Roberta walked us through it step-by-step. As buyers in an incredibly competitive market, we had to make tons of offers and look at house after house. We so appreciated how generous Roberta was with her time - even when we were losing patience, she helped us keep looking and persevere. Roberta gave us great advice that ultimately led to our offer being accepted, even though it wasn't the highest offer the seller received. After our offer was accepted, Roberta worked with us through every step of closing and closely coordinated with the sellers to make our experience as smooth as possible. She is very familiar with the Olympia area and a stellar realtor. We couldn't recommend her highly enough!

Sam Young

We just purchased our 3rd property with Mike Barber.

He has gone the extra mile with all three properties. He has gone above and beyond for us. We've also recommended him to friends and family and they have said the same. If you're looking for someone who will go above and beyond for you he is your guy.

Shawn L Lanning (Longshoreman )

Roberta is a aggressive realtor.

She gives your home 100% attention. She was always easy to get a hold of. Definitely would use Roberta again.

Alicia Neeley

Lorena was a BLESSING during the search for our first home!

We previously had tried to get help from a few other realtors and were at a loss, felt like we were getting nowhere. Things were completely different with her, she calmed alot of our fears, and was able to answer all of our questions. Lorena as ON TOP OF THINGS. SO INCREDIBLY HELPFUL and INFORMATIVE. Response time was immaculate, communication is SUPERIOR, and we felt like she genuinely cared about us and what we were searching for. She went above and beyond for us. 10/10 would recommend her and the team to any of my family and loved ones, not just strangers.

Caitlyn & Jordan Barrette

Roberta‘s many years of experience in the area of real estate was pivotal in helping us complete the purchase of our new home.

Despite Roberta operating in Thurston County she was able to assist us with purchasing a home in the county to the south. Roberta is highly recommended for any real estate needs.

Timothy O’Dell

I worked with this amazing realtor Katie Parkinson to sell my home back in August.

She was professional, detailed and worked with me while I was in another state. Her attention to detail and signify realtor knowledge she had my home staged, posted and closed in three weeks. I highly recommend using Katie Parkinson for your future home purchases or sale.

Clarewen Bedt

Roberta Rudnick is a pro in every sense of the word.

We have bought and sold with her multiple times and would not hesitate to work with her again. She is honest, hard working, professional and knows the real estate market well. Our most recent sale and purchase was done during the COVID19 shutdown, followed by tight restrictions. It was overwhelming the amount of unknows we faced as we prepared a house to sell while also looking for a new place to buy. Roberta was there, every step of the way, fully engaged and proactive as our representative. She is an amazing real estate agent!

Kevin & Hope Reimer

Roberta has been our agent once before, and we were happy to work with her again.

She found us exactly what we asked for, and has exceeded our expectations for make sure we closed on our home. Even after closing, she has remained a valuable resource to us, namely is recommending contractors.

Andrew Bird (Sales Representative )

Katie helped us sell a lot in Olympia and was such a pleasure to work with.

The lot had been on the market previously with no offers, but once Katie took over the listing we had multiple offers in hand within days. We would highly recommend her services to anyone look ing for a realtor in her area. Thanks again, Katie!

Roger BAer

Kim made home buying a breeze.

She was very knowledgeable with the entire process and the Olympia area. Made us feel confident in every decision that was being made.

Justin Donahue

Roberta's experience came through for us.

She packaged the sale of our house in a well thought out way that resulted in a timely sale. She became our agent for all future transactions! Thank you.

Patrick Snodgrass

Cari is very knowledgeable about the local market and has helped me in two transactions of purchasing and one transaction of selling.

She helped make my transition from out of state very easy four years ago and this time helped me to sell that home that I had purchased and procure another home. Her communication and response time is excellent. She goes above and beyond, communicating very frequently with you over the years after transactions and offering any support such as referrals you need for various services at your home. She is just terrific to work with!

Kristiann Smith

Cari listened to what I wanted and was always quick to show me a house I was interested in.

She is very good at communicating and being in touch with you through the whole home buying process. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in buying a house.

Kristen Rogers (Special Education Teacher)

Katie was incredibly helpful in our home purchase!

We had been haunting Redfin for months, looking for our new home remotely before a move to Olympia. When by far the best house we had seen popped up, we called Katie immediately and planned a visit that weekend for a viewing. Everything went great, the house was wonderful in person and Katie helped us through the bidding process to make sure our offer was accepted. Since then, she has been very helpful with the closing process and letting in contractors to get estimates for work we need before we move in. Highly recommended!

Sam Larson

There’s not enough good things to say about Katie.

She was professional, articulate, knowledge, helpful, and efficient every step of the way. Helped me immensely with her honesty, guidance, and strategic mind. Best realtor to go through, bar none.

Avram Bourdeau (Data Analyst)

It was great.

Robin did a wonderful job and went above and beyond expectations! Robin knew the information that we needed and was very professional in every aspect of the purchasing process. Robin was willing to answer any questions we had and went above and beyond to find the answer. She was always cordial and friendly and very kind as well.

Trish Shelton (Buyer)

Mike did an excellent job!

He was very communicative with what he was doing on his end, what I needed to do, and with any updates on our progress. He took care of a lot of the work and explained anything I didn't fully understand as he did it. As a first time property buyer, he made the whole process very simple, efficient and stress free!

Devon Proctor

Kim was amazing to work with yet again.

This is the 2nd house I've worked with Kim on selling and she's always been great to have on my side. She knows the market, had an idea of what the selling price would end up being and was spot on with it. When we had some inspection and appraiser issues she walked us though options and was very responsive between us and the buyer. Definitely will be using Kim again

Chris Gregor

Thank you so much for your exceptional service and performance selling several investment properties.

Very pleased with your results! Already working on my next one!

Shon Hathcock

Kim Rucker and Roberta Rudnick demonstrated their Realty acumen during the sale of our grandmother's home in 2018, and we felt fortunate to be able to enlist their services for a second time.

Professionalism always, astute knowledge of the market, reliable and responsive communication to our many questions, of course; but also kindness, patience and understanding with the emotions of letting go of a family home. As the project unfolded, many issues arose, but Kim's energy and optimism kept us all moving forward; we were so grateful for a team whose connections with tradespeople allowed for things to get done. When it was finally time for showing, as before, the team's staging was transformative, definitely an asset for the successful sales of both homes. We highly recommend this NextHome Team. Thank you Kim & Roberta!

Kris Docherty and Kathy Docherty-Muzzana

Katie did a great job for us.

She is awesome! She helped us find a great house. She made herself available around our schedule and answered questions quickly after they were asked. It was a great experience!

Jonathan and Karen Geiger

Sandi recently sold a property of mine on Black Lake in Olympia.

She staged it, put it on the market, and got it sold at the start of winter during the holiday season. She was hands on in presenting it in the best way possible. She was professional and competent in all aspects of the selling process. I feel very fortunate to have had her as my realtor. It was a pleasure to work with her.

Cliff Bishop (Seller )

Great job in finding us a lovely home.

Great local knowledge and advice. Friendly and not afraid to tell you the truth about houses and neighborhoods. Thank you somuch

Robert G (Marine Pilot)

Roberta did a wonderful job getting our home prepared for our listing.

Roberta was always available to us and kept us updated. Her personal touches staging our home was one of the keys to successfully selling our home. Always positive, always professional, always honest. Steve & Christal Nelson

Steve Nelson

Lorena is an great agent.

Her personality and work ethic are both exceptional. No matter what I asked or what time I asked, she responded with an answer that was helpful. We sold our home in 8 days for full asking price and that was due to the great advice Lorena gave us prior to the sale. I recommend her to everyone I know that is interested in buying or selling.

Michael Dahl

Roberta Rudnick is one in a million!

We have used her expertise on 4 real estate transactions and are about to use her on transaction #5. We wouldn't consider anyone else. She is extremely knowledgeable in the real estate field and works with your wants and needs. She goes far beyond being your agent. If you are looking for an agent, Roberta is who you need.

Janet Willey

Cari was extremely helpful and responsive to answering our questions.

Moving somewhere from out of state is a challenging and stressful process, and I'm glad that Cari was there to help us through it all. She was awesome to help do virtual and in person walk-throughs. We found just the right amount of Washington Quirk in our house. Very reassuring and helped us through every step of the process. A++ Thanks so much!

Christopher Drabandt (Buyer)

I have bought and sold many homes.

Sandi is by far the best realtor I have ever worked with! This was a very difficult situation involving a divorce and disabled seller. A very tight timeline was needed. I don't believe any other realtor would have had a prayer of getting this all done. Sandi is such a great professional, she has many people that love working with her so much. They do extraordinary efforts to get the jobs done in the time allowed. Sandi herself does so much of the work to get the house ready and then complete any work needed to complete the sale. There isn't enough room here to tell you how awesome she is!

Scott Sonsalla

She is The Greatest!
