Testimonials

“Ann helped me buy my dream home by targeting the area where I wanted to live, came up with some listings and took me to the listings I had found. She was knowledgeable and lot’s of fun to go house hunting with! She stayed within my budget and some great opinions on what was “easy” work vs more difficult issues. I felt really comfortable with her. When I found my house, Ann came up with a terrific negotiating strategy and I got an amazing deal. I was absolutely thrilled and would work with her again in a heartbeat!”

“We met Ann at an open house she was hosting. We immediately clicked and she has been our agent ever since. We are so glad we found her! We have bought one house with her for the grandparents which went seamlessly and have continued for the past four years to hunt for the right house for our family. That’s a long time and Ann has been so accommodating and available over these years. She always arrives at a house visit armed with comparables. She’s vigilant about contacting listing agents and getting answers. She spared us from taking on a home that would have cost us several hundred thousand dollars in repairs by hooking us up with a fantastic home inspector. She’s savvy about the market and gives us solid advice on what may or may not be a good investment and never seems in a hurry to make a sale. She genuinely wants us to find the right home, whenever that is. We are not the easiest clients, but that hasn’t deterred Ann from giving us top notch service. We’re looking forward to listing with her in the future and fully expect the same professionalism and attention we’ve received as buyers.”

“We had worked with Ann to look at a few homes, but had not seen what we were looking for. After virtually patrolling a neighborhood for a couple years waiting for a home to come up for sale, one did, and we called Ann and looked at it that day, had an offer in that night, and our offer was accepted the next day in a competitive bid environment. Ann worked with the seller agent and provided advice to ensure that the transaction would work for all of us. She provided just the right level of assistance and oversight to ensure that we worked our way to closing without any real issues. Ann is a consummate professional with a solid grasp of finance, process, and psychology that provides a rate combination of talents in this industry. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a home, or selling. She is a smart and knowledgeable advocate who really listens and responds to her customers.”

– Meg & Dave


“From start to finish, Ann provided great information and follow through. My wife and I both appreciated Ann’s knowledge of the local market and her respect for what we were looking for. We looked for a period of over a year and she remained patient throughout. We ended by purchasing a home through Ann. The experience was very positive and we recommend her without reservation!”

As most people know, it can be stressful enough to put your house up for sale; then add relocating your family internationally in about 3 months and you could have a serious recipe for stress. What we needed was someone who could move our house quickly, at a good price and work with our schedule, which went from 0 to 60 overnight. Not too much to ask right? We had known Ann for years but never needed a Realtor until a job offer took us from Sammamish, WA to the Netherlands. Three months from job acceptance to departure, Ann Hauser was the perfect choice. Ann jumped in with both feet and made the partnership of getting our house ready for sale, staged, listed, and marketed, as stress free and smooth as possible. She took on our crazy travel schedule (sometimes we weren’t even in the country) and timeline with no hesitation. Although we knew she had other clients, we always felt we were her #1 priority. After a few short weeks, our house was ready to go on the market. In the end, pricing the house right, Ann’s dedication to showings and marketing, her true partnership with us and her prompt response to everyone resulted in our house in Sammamish being SOLD within 30 days at 98% of the asking price, even in what people referred to as a “down” market!

( Juli-anne and Joe first review) “We were off to our new adventure with a great experience behind us. To say Ann is professional and dedicated as well as personable and super to work with is just the beginning. She is in our opinion, the hardest working realtor out there and is truly the best at what she does. We would work with her again without a doubt.

Thanks Ann for being so supportive through the entire process.”

– Juli-anne & Joe


“We used the services of Ann Hauser to buy and sell in 2009. We were very happy with how she handled both transactions and would recommend her strongly. We should add that we are family friends of Ann but that does not factor into our strong recommendation. Dealing with a friend can make the experience of buying and selling more pleasant, but at the end of the day , it is a major business transaction that eclipses the friendship.

Thank you again! Ann did a stellar job.”

– Ashley & Garrett


“Ann, Stephen and I want to let you know how much we appreciate all of your efforts during the buying and selling process of our homes. We could not have imagined everything it involved! One thing we know for sure is that we couldn’t have survived without you! It wasn’t just the details of buying/selling (which you handled expertly), it was the way you helped us each day. There must have been a million phone calls, questions, contacts, advice, and yes, even just reassurance. Every time we called you, you answered.Many times you came over. It just feels easier going through things when you were standing in our living room (or kitchen bringing us ice cream at a particularly difficult moment at 11pm!) Ann, you are thoughtful, thorough, and you were there for us. Thank you again!”

– Denine & Stephen


“Ann made the process of buying our first home as smooth and painless as possible. There were hiccups along the way and she was extremely proactive in smoothing things out and resolving any problems, and went above and beyond of what could be expected.”

– Kate & Andrei


“We interviewed three agents before we decided to go with Ann. Her professionalism and knowledge of the area convinced us to go with her. Additionally she was very pleasant to work with and immediately started on the sale of our home. We don’t believe we could have found a better agent for us.”

– Jack


“I had been searching a neighborhood for six years, and a highly desirable house came on the market. I called Ann, and within an hour we were seeing the property. From there we put in a bid and had the house in less than 24 hours. Had she not tirelessly worked through the night,we would have missed having the home of our dreams. If you want a realtor who is able to discern exactly what you are looking for, thorough, and impeccably forthright, go see Ann. Many of my friends have used her as well. She puts the same energy into selling your home, having seen what she has demonstrated with my close friends. And to cap it all off, we relocated to San Diego three years later. We informed Ann about wanting to rent the property. She found incredible tenants for us within a month. Need I say more?”

“Ann was our realtor when we sold our condo on the Eastside. Since this was our first condo sale, we had many questions and Ann patiently provided some much needed clarity about the process. Our sale was complicated by the fact that we were in the process of making an international move. Ann took care of everything; she scheduled the carpet cleaning, house cleaning, and window repair. We didn’t have to worry about trying to get those things done on our own when we had a ton of other things to handle for our move. The sale of our condo was finalized after we moved out of the country, and it couldn’t have been simpler because of Ann. She made herself available to take our phone calls, all negotiations were handled professionally, and our condo was sold for the most per square foot of any in our development. Ann is special because she cares, and it’s obvious in the way she treats her clients. We consider her a friend, and if we move back to the U.S., there’s no doubt we’ll use Ann to help us find a home.”

– Scott & Mandy


“Ann is a professional real estate agent in every regard. She gave us honest and practical advice in areas in which we desperately needed help – preparing, listing, staging and selling our home. It sold in less than a week! Ann dedicated herself to helping us reach our goals and she worked hard in a very respectful way that left us to make the key decisions throughout the entire process. Ann lives in and stays current with the ever-changing local realty market. Having her represent us was a great experience and we highly recommend her to sell your home/property!”

– Bill & Marilyn


“Ann did a fantastic job in representing us with the purchase of our new home. On exceptionally short notice she helped us walk through the house several times, secure home inspection services and even supported obtaining a sewer repair estimate for negotiation purposes.

She is a consummate real estate professional and her dealings with the listing agent were thoughtful and timely. She advocated for us strongly throughout the entire process.

We were in a multiple offer situation and Ann navigated the challenge this presented beautifully. She counseled us in writing a heartfelt letter to accompany our offer. She presented the offer in an friendly and earnest manner and kept us in the mix until the successful outcome.

Ann is a great person and great real estate agent. Her attention to detail is unsurpassed. You will truly feel serviced when you enlist her to help you with such a big life decision.”

“Ann was an exemplary realtor. She was able to find us a home that not only fit our needs, but had a stellar location with regard to work/school. She was willing to go above and beyond to take care of us and spent countless hours with our family. We would highly recommend her to anyone!”

– Nick and Rebecca


“Ann Hauser helped us sell our home and she made a stressful process as stress free as possible. Ann always returned my calls promptly and kept us informed during the whole process. She understood the value of our home and the market better than I did and we sold our home for more than I expected. Ann was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her as Realtor to any one buying or selling a home.”

– Pam & John


“Ann Hauser is undoubtedly, one of the best agents on the Eastside.

I have worked with Ann Hauser on our last sale and purchase of our homes. Her dedication and patience went above and beyond our expectations. One of the things I like best about Ann is her personal involvment and caring about what our preferences were when selling and buying. When she put our house on the market she work dilligently to make sure everything was staged perfectly. Our house sold in 2 weeks!”

– Gina & Bob


“I know a lot of crazy claims are made in these type of reviews but that is not my style. Ann not only sold my home rapidly and painlessly but she made what could have been traumatic, a really fun experience. She provided calm reassurance, sage wisdom, lighthearted banter, and unique staging ideas, all at the exact time each was needed. Beyond how pleasant she is to work with, Ann sold my house in one week in a soft market! I highly recommend Ann Hauser as a truly exemplary real estate professional.”

“After spending over 3 ½ years living in Europe (see prior review below) we had an opportunity to come back to the Seattle area in 2014. Once again we chose to work with Ann based on our last experience. However, this time we were Buyers. She again embraced our “International schedule and time zone” without hesitation and rolled with all the challenges of our relocation back to the US. While still in the Netherlands, she listened to what we really wanted in our new home, she sent us listings via email, searched and searched as we narrowed our “wants and must haves”, she previewed properties and ruled out many for us (a huge time saver!)…and with a tight window and only one of us in the country scheduled showings of some fabulous house choices on the Eastside. The understanding Ann had for what we wanted was remarkable and we felt so fortunate to have her on our side. After finding a favorite, we ended taking a Skype tour for the spouse back in the NL we had a winner. No easy task for most. Again, a great experience.

We have now worked with Ann as both Buyer and Seller and couldn’t be happier and loving our new home in Redmond. Again, big thanks to Ann!
