Lisa was responsive and ready to talk bidding strategy both weekdays and weekends during the hottest of seller’s markets. She let my wife and I adjust our expectations without passing judgement and correctly predicted market trends at every step of the process. She was an invaluable resource to craft attractive offers and find a perfect home for my family.
"It's moving day, into our first house, and we couldn't have done it without the amazing Lisa Bender. From the "curious if we could do this" step all the way up to getting the keys, Lisa was there for us to answer questions and support the process. She even had Bernstein Bears moving day book to help my little girl's anxiety about it all. We were amazed at how available she made herself to accommodate our timeline. I'd recommend Lisa to anyone in her service area seeking to buy a home. She's amazing!"
(Oct. 2021) Update to previous review- 3 years after our first home purchase, with Lisa again at the helm of our team, we sold! Quickly and over asking price, too. This sale was part of a huge move to back east, and she could not have made it easier for us. Before we moved she set up a stager and cleaners. We handed her a spare set of keys, left the extras in the kitchen drawer and drove away. The cleaners came later that day and worked miracles on our pet-and-kid friendly house. The stager set up the following day and it was stunning! The media packages she puts together for the listings are so polished. They created ours the day after staging, then we listed the following day and sold in 25 hours on the market with a 2-week quick close offer. Not only is she fantastic at making buying and selling a breeze for her clients, but she goes the extra mile every time. We left a few items behind that she graciously mailed to us, and she sent us an amazing Shutterfly book of the listing pictures. Lisa takes care of the details so you don’t have to worry about them on top of all the other things going on in life during a huge move. I cannot recommend her and her team enough for both buying and selling. I am still in awe of how she took care of everything so seamlessly. I wholeheartedly recommended her to anyone in need of real estate support in the area.

"Lisa is absolutely amazing. She’s everything you want in an agent - knowledgeable, responsive, patient, and pretty damn funny. Five years ago she helped us buy our first home. She showed us a ton of houses and ultimately found us the perfect one - it had an acre of land in Edmonds with a creek running through it, how cool is that?
When it came time to sell, we of course wanted to work with Lisa again, but we were also wooed by an online brokerage’s low listing fees. So we met with their agent and... it was not a great experience. They were hurried, didn’t want to see all of the property, had no suggestions for improvements, and worst of all were insistent on listing it 50k below where we wanted it listed. For a unique house like ours, not having an agent that could see the selling points was a red flag. We chose Lisa. Funny thing is, we never told the other agent we were switching, they just never reached out to us again. Oh well.
Lisa suggested some sensible improvements and for the bigger jobs (like landscaping) referred us to contractors to get the work done. Everyone she hooked us up with was awesome and affordable. I think we saved any difference in listing fees in these referrals alone.
In the end, we had multiple offers above our asking price waiting for us on the offer review date. What more could you ask for?
Buying or selling a house, you’d be lucky to work with Lisa."

"Lisa helped me to list and sell my home and also helped me to buy a new one. The selling went very smooth thanks to her negotiation skills. But I have to say, that I was impressed on how she helped me to buy the new house; we had many external issues and she foresee pretty much all, like a wizard, and she did all the adjustments and negotiations to ensure we got the house. Lisa really cares."

"We found Lisa by sheer luck. There was a house listed next door to our rented place and we casually called Lisa from the number on the listing board on the porch. We did not like the house but loved Lisa. From that first time on, she impressed us with her thoroughness, being responsive to various questions/asks and mostly importantly being customer obsessed. Lisa would always spend time to understand our asks and work backwards to meet it. She was patient, very knowledgeable of her domain (which came in extremely helpful since we were new to the country) and helped us find the house we wanted. With Lisa, you can expect thorough professionalism and yet completely personal service. If I were to buy or sell, I would look no further than Lisa. Thank you, Lisa!"

"Lisa is the real estate champ! Lisa was a huge part of why we closed the deal and got our home. Although the process can be challenging in the Seattle housing market Lisa couldn't have made it easier. She helped us narrow our search and once we found a few homes we were interested in we moved quickly and Lisa really led the way. The selling agent was very pleased with how Lisa presented us and Lisa helped us build a conventional offer that ended up beating a cash offer! I still can't believe it. I would highly recommend Lisa to anyone, Ive never met such a helpful and professional real estate agent. Thank you Lisa!"

"Lisa was great from the start. She met me at my home and we did a walk through of my house. I told her all of the things I was hoping to take care of and she shot me straight. I asked her questions and she was honest from the start. Told me what and how things would work best and really made me feel like she was listening and eager to help. She was always super responsive and I feel like I have gained a new friend in the process. Absolutely enjoyed working with Lisa, especially for my first time selling a house."

"Lisa responded right away to my questions and kept me informed throughout the process of listing, selling and closing. When prepping the house for sale, one thing made a huge difference: Lisa has a team of professionals she can contact and get to come work at the house according to our needs. That made things so much easier for me than running around to find professionals for each job required! When I went to sign the sale, she even helped me (through the phone!) to find the building I had to go to, as I had trouble with technology at that time. I highly recommend Lisa Bender as a real estate agent."

"I was lucky enough to stumble upon Lisa online. If you are even looking at her reviews and contemplating calling her, just stop what you're doing and contact her. It will make your real estate search so much easier, and you will have someone in your corner. She is so patient and knowledgeable, she answered all my questions and had valuable input throughout the process stemming from her years of knowledge and expertise. She truly cares about her clients and it shows. When we found our house, the sellers had scheduled an open house for that weekend a few days after they had listed the property. They cancelled their open house and accepted our offer, without us having to go over asking. She's the best!"

"People come along in your lifetime that standout from others. They are either caring, or dedicated to their mission. In Lisa you get far more that I consider a true friend for life. I will always turn to Lisa the rest of My life when it comes to properties. Her work, wisdom, people skills, knowledge, humor, grounded professional approach is what few like her possess. I interviewed 13 agents and am a tough individual having worked in Law enforcement for over 32 years. I choose her after those interviewed and she never let me down. I had an offer within 3 days yet she stuck to the process the entire way. This closing had its challenges, yet she stayed on the path. Lisa even went on vacation and manage to check in with me to asssure any needs or thoughts I had were met. This is going beyond what is required. Lisa is the BEST. If you need an agent then look no farther. There is no one even close to what she will bring you. She loves family, she loves people and she will work hard in treating your greatest asset with its proper respect. I can only suggest to anyone whom is searching for a professional agent that is a cut above all the rest, Lisa is the clear choice."

"Lisa first helped me sell my home in Clearview. I then went on a search for a rambler in Snohomish. I made bids on a couple of homes and was either outbid or contingencies could not be met. We then found my perfect place. The owners were considering taking it off the market to spruce it up more. Lisa got them to consider my offer and then with a little negotiations it is now mine. I highly recommend Lisa."

Another great benefit of having Lisa as our agent is she is well connected. She helped us find a great mortgage broker who made smart decisions for us. I enjoyed Lisa's wealth of knowledge and her easy going personality. It made the house buying process very comfortable. I highly recommend working with Lisa on any home buying experience!"

"Lisa came into our home buying experience after we had already started working with a couple other individuals to try to get started buying a home. After speaking with her a few times and going to visit a listing together, it was extremely clear that we needed to dump anybody else we were working with and just go with her. She spent a ton of time working with my wife and I to understand exactly what we were interested in and what was important to us and our future family. She was extremely responsive, constantly matching our preferred method of communication to get us the answers we needed. Quick question via email? She got back right away. Needed to discuss something more significant? She was on the phone as soon as she could be. The immediate response, attention to our needs, and overall pleasure of working with Lisa makes her an easy recommendation to anybody looking to buy a home. Don't waste your time with a big company, go with somebody who knows the area, cares about you, and will help you find a house you are proud to own. That person is Lisa!"

She developed a winning strategy. Mindful of our budget, Lisa helped us turn a tenant-ravaged house into a move-in-ready home with her on-target repair/upgrade recommendations. Her sales promotion was very effective...the home received SIX full-price-or-better offers within a week of listing it. Lisa is my personal "go-to" gal for all matters real estate..." Betsy DeSalvo

"I met Lisa about 12 yrs ago when we decided to move to the Seattle area.I told her what I was looking for and she sent me listings to look at. When I arrived in Seattle, she took me to view the listings I was interested in. She kept me focused and pointed a lot of things out that I over looked. Any questions I had she had the answer or found out the answer quickly. The transaction went smoothly.
2014 we decided to sell our home and move out of state. I contacted Lisa and she helped me find an agent in Colorado. She helped me get my house ready to sell--she arranged for pictures and staging etc. She sent me comps so I knew what like properties were selling for in my area. Any questions I had, she got back to me quickly. Their were a couple issues down the road but they concerned the buyer and she and the other agent worked to solve the problems so the sale went as planned. When you buy or sell a house, you want an agent that looks out for your best interests etc. and Lisa is that person."

Her experience with and knowledge of real estate and the market saved us precious time and taught us a lot. One specific example, was when we were interested in a property listed at the upper end of our price range, but not interested in getting into a bidding war on it. Lisa told us the home would likely sell for much more than the listing price, so we focused our attention elsewhere. A month later, I noticed it had sold for 20% more than the listing price! We are extremely satisfied and would certainly go with her again."

"Lisa was my listing agent. I’ve sold a few homes and know many agents. I met Lisa at an open house a long time ago and stayed on her mail list. I liked her approach on the correspondence I received. So when I reached out to a few agents to discuss the listing I took the time to meet with her. Price wasn’t my most important concern because anyone can inflate price to capture a listing. What I wanted was an honest opinion from a knowledgeable currently successful professional that could do an excellent job of marketing the listing and who could guide though the steps required took to make the sale. Lisa did that and so much more. She worked hard for me and earned every cent she was paid. I always knew she was doing her best at working on the sale and not “working me”. Selling a home is always an emotional experience and it’s nice to have honest frank conversations with a professional who has a track record of success that is easy to communicate with. I highly recommend Lisa if you want an excellent agent. Larry L Layman"

"Hands down, Lisa was the best realtor we could have asked for. As first time buyers, we were not quite sure what we wanted and she had to drive to so many places with us. The places were often far outside the city, but she was very patient, kind and helped us stay positive throughout the purchase process. Besides her friendly and up-lifting demeanors, she was very knowledgeable in the market and had many great connections in real estate business. The bank I originally picked for mortgage took too long, and we almost missed the house, until Lisa came through in the last minute. She magically extended the deadline with the seller and connected us with her colleague at a local mortgage company. In the end, we go the house and are very happy. Thank you Lisa!"

"We rolled the dice by using a realtor from an online service, but we hit the jackpot with Lisa Bender! (Pardon my mixed gambling metaphor.) Lisa was extremely responsive to our needs, always available to answer questions or show us homes, and helped us understand the unique real estate issues in Washington state (we're from Texas). We cannot say enough great things about Lisa. Call her! You will be SO GLAD you did."

"Lisa is a professional of what she does, she takes the time to research and study the market to ensure it is fair to all parties. She is personable and on time every time."

"Lisa is phenomenal!! We were under a tight schedule to find our perfect home and she helped us every step of the way. She made herself available on short notice, gave us great advice, tips and honest opinions at every house we looked at. She is trustworthy to the core, has lots of experience and is a joy to work with. Ultimately we found a Home Path house and with Lisa's expertise with paperwork, negotiating skill and a little luck, it is now our dream home. I recommend Lisa to anyone I know who needs a realtor."

"Lisa helped my husband and I buy our first house back in July 2011 and we loved working with Lisa! She was very informative, and I really appreciated how she pointed out potential risks when when we were looking at houses. She answered all of our questions and we felt at ease during the whole process. We would recommend her to anyone! We are still in the house we bought and we love it so much!"

"Lisa was very patient with us as first time home buyers. She helped us through several false starts before we finally found a short-sale that met our needs. Lisa was always prompt in responding to our questions and was great at working around our busy schedules. Lisa is also quite tech savvy, which is a bonus for a pair of software engineers looking for a house."

"This was the first home we have ever purchased and Lisa made the experience smooth, stress free and actually fun. We felt like we were working with a good freind and that she truly had our best interests at heart. She is fun, friendly, knowledgable, and honest. I would highly recommend her and if a time comes for us to sell our house or buy another property I will request her help with out hesitation."

"Lisa was very accommodating to our requests to view houses. She made herself available during the week and weekends. We were looking at foreclosed homes as well as regular sales and we had no problem getting the information we needed from Lisa to make an informed decision and make an offer."

"After buying and selling several homes with other agents, my wife and I met Lisa Bender at an open house. We were immediately impressed with the extra steps she was taking to sell her client's home. After our home sat on the market for several months - and with little effort from our previous agent- we hired Lisa. With Lisa's expertise and professionalism, our home quickly sold, and at a healthy profit! She really proved her value in finding us a new home which we absolutely love! We are huge fans of Lisa Bender! She is a star Realtor and we wouldn't hesitate to use her again."

"We had been looking for a house in snohomish county for quite a while. We had recently sold our home and were not happy with the service we received from our first real estate agent. We found Lisa Bender online and will never use another agent again. Lisa was professional, extremely accommodating, very personable and she really understood what we were looking for in a home. We ended up finding our dream home through Lisa, but it had multiple offers. Because of Lisa's reputation in the industry, the sellers decided to go wit our offer and we got the house we always wanted. We could not be happier with the service and expertise we received from Lisa Bender. I would highly recommend her for any real estate transaction. Kelly and Per Cummings"

"Lisa was always very quick to respond to email/phone calls and kept us informed of status at all times. That is really important considering the housing market right now. We closed on the property ~15 days after it was listed. She made sure all the paperwork was processed in time to ensure the closing. Lisa is also very understanding and patient. She would visit listings with us even though I knew I wasn't going to put in an offer but wanted to get a feel for the comps in the area."

"We happened to see one of Lisa's listings by accident while driving around and when I contacted her she offered to be our agent and set up a meeting. Since my husband and I were first-time home buyers, Lisa was willing to sit down and and explain the whole process with us in detail. She took into account our wish list and did her very best to find what we were looking for. She found two homes we really loved, and when we were ready to make an offer she was very quick to submit it. She was so helpful throughout the whole process and was very honest about the road blocks we might encounter along the way. Lisa was a huge asset to us in our search for our first home. She made the process so easy for us and I would definitely recommend her if you're looking to buy a home!"

"Lisa made the whole house buying experience much less stressful than I'm sure it could have been. She was always available by phone with great advice and information of all kinds. Her sage advice was obviously forged from considerable experience, as well as doing plenty of homework in researching the houses we were looking at, and closely listening to what we were looking for. She made time to go through many houses with us and informed us promptly of any red flags and what their implications were. Behind the scenes, she was on top of the paperwork, phone calls, etc., as well as having an incredible network of connections. She was as far from pushy as you could get, and her amazing personal skills helped us tremendously in navigating the stressful moments and making the best decisions. I could not have been more satisfied in my dealings with Lisa Bender."

"What can I say? She's amazing, smart, funny, engaged and trustworthy. If you need an honest person that will stick with you until it's done pick Lisa, you can't go wrong. I only wish I could afford more houses so I could work with her again ;) Lisa worked with me October of 2011 to buy a HomePath home - it was great to have some experience on my side. There is a lot of paperwork and a lot of things you have to remember. Lisa was there for me, did the homework, worked with my Bank and got it done. We HAD to close by 10/31/2011, and guess what, that was the day we closed!"

"I would highly recommend Lisa to anyone buying or selling. She recently helped us do both and made the process feel seamless. She was always amazingly responsive to our requests to view a home, offering insight into things that we may have missed at the viewing. The same incredible accessibility made the stresses of a multiple offer purchase seem less daunting. Her expertise and calm communication during negotiations were amazing and gave me complete confidence in our offer. While it wasn't our first time buying, it was our first time selling and she expertly guided us through that process, as well. From her pricing strategy that was spot on, to her suggestions for getting our house ready for market, Lisa had us perfectly placed and we had multiple strong offers, selling the house after only one weekend. Having the purchase and sale come together so well was beyond our expectations and was completely due to Lisa's skills! "
