About Louise Olson

More Testimonials...

"You'll see from the testimonials below how much I appreciate your work and your reassuring influence on me. Thanks so much for riding the bumpy road to a really satisfying result for me. As you know, I found the whole process nerve-wracking and you helped me keep my sanity; that meant a lot to me."
"From our first meeting, Louise demonstrated thorough thinking, respect, reassurance, and good humor. Her market research report was detailed and well-researched. We had an offer at our first open house, in part due to her professional preparation. She then worked hard on a long, difficult negotiation, which in the end was not the offer we accepted. Still her reassuring attitude and good humor never failed. She guided me easily through accepting another offer and planning for a Purchase and Sale agreement, and at the end gave detailed logistics advice on closing and moving day. What I appreciated most of all was having her solid planning and calming influence throughout a process full of ups and downs."

"Scott handled brass tacks elements such as photography, installation of a carbon monoxide alarm and inspection of the smoke alarm, as well as coordinating the moving day buyer’s walk through with hustle, solid results, humor and even-headedness. My immediate response on seeing his photographs for the web was ‘Who knew my space looked so good?"  With gratitude, Dale

“Thank you Louise.  As painless and successful as these things get.” - Tom

"Thank you both for all your help.  You eased the process greatly, and got a good price, too!"  - Dave
