Scott and Kim from Sammamish Realty were fantastic to work with and got us the best price we could ever imagine for our home. From the moment we first met with them they were prepared and educated about our home and realistic about what we needed to do to get it ready to sell. Scott and Kim were instrumental in helping us prepare our house for sale (they paid thousands $ upfront) - from landscaping to staging they were there every step of the way. Once our house went on the market the negotiation process was easy and quick, plus we sold for $200k over ask!!!
Communication was always prompt and honest. We couldn’t recommend Scott and Kim more. If we were staying in Washington state we would use them for every purchase and sale of any home we have in the future.
When you're going to sell a house there are lots of broker and agent options to pick from and the process is very stressful. We decided we wanted to go with a local broker/agent that had a deep knowledge of Sammamish and our neighborhood so we went with the best, Sammamish Realty, Scott, Kim, and Jamie. Scott and the team gave us great advice on when to sell, what to do to the house, and what is the best selling strategy. Kim and Jamie helped us stage the house in a very professional way. Scott and the team visited us several times, listened deeply to our concerns, and gave us the best advice according to our needs. He was very professional with a 100% focus on us as customers not on the commission. We really like this. WE as customers were more important. With their advice, staging, and processing, we sold the house in one day and way over the list price. The strategy and timing worked perfectly. We are very grateful to Scott, Kim, and Jamie and highly recommend them. They will help take away the stress and guide you in the right direction with excellent results and in a very professional way. Thank you, Scott, Kim, and Jamie for all you did. We will be eternally grateful to you. We hope lots of customers make the right decision to come your way. They will regret not doing so by missing the chance to work with the best in the business.

Scott and Kim were on vacation when we reached out to them about putting our house on the market in early December 2020. They not only did research from their vacation spot, but passed up on an opportunity to extend their stay to come back and assist us with our home sale!
They walked us through the process, helped us to prep our home for a weekend showing and our house was sold 2 1/2 days later with too many offers to count and for well over asking price. While some of this is attributed to the hot market, most of it can be attributed to Scott and Kim's efforts. Scott is excellent at pricing a home to attract the maximum number of buyers and managed the process of sorting through all of the offers to highlight the ones to spend most time considering.
They lived up to their original statement that they could have us relocated by the end of December through their tireless work!
My family was looking for a rental house and were unfamiliar with the area. Mitsuko was an amazing help in locating homes that met our criteria and getting us tours. She was always very friendly, professional and thoughtful in her work. She also had great source of knowledge of the Sammamish and Issaquah neighborhoods. A pleasure working with her!
I cannot recommend Sammamish Realty enough!!! I knew I wanted this firm to sell my home after seeing all the local signs around town with their name on a SOLD sign. We decided to put our family home of 11 years on the market at one of the busiest times of the year for most people, right between the Thanksgiving and the Christmas holidays.
We were under a tight deadline to relocate. To make matters worse, I was working practically around the clock in a busy hospital and had little time for planning.
Scott, Kim and Jamie Bobson went to work immediately, going above and beyond. They called in their professional crew of painters, handymen, etc. to get our home in top shape. Kim personally staged our home, bringing in items to place for the perfect touch. Kim and her daughter, Jamie actually packed a good deal of my things in boxes for me!!! I know for a fact that I would not have met the deadline without the Bobson’s working tirelessly to show the home in the best light possible.
Scott is a genius in determining what to price our home at to maximize profit and interest. Our home sold in 5 (FIVE) days with multiple offers. We settled on $65,000 over asking price!!! Unbelievable!
Sammamish Realty is a comprised of a hard-working family with work ethics. They will use to get you the best price possible on your home with the least effort and worry on your part. On a 5 star rating, I give them TEN stars! The very best real estate agency in the Sammamish and surrounding areas!
Not only is Scott a highly ethical professional, but he is an expert at pricing and preparing a house for the best sales outcome. Kim’s specialty is marketing and staging. We handed the house over to them a week ago to project manage the usual various and sundry things that need to be done to put a house on the market. They have brought all of their networks and resources to bear to getting the house ready, while we romped off to our new apartment and to go work as usual, and happily left every detail in their hands.
If you ever decide to sell your home, especially if you don’t want to deal with the cleaning, handyman stuff, or any details about prepping the house….and if you want to get a great price and know that you are in excellent hands… you should keep Scott & Kim Bobson in mind!

Our experience with Sammamish Realty was excellent, from start to close. The reason we chose them was because of their long experience and knowledge of the local real estate market. They also have a good deal of knowledge about the mortgage process, which was very helpful to us as we had many questions while trying to buy and sell a house at the same time. Because our house was on the lower end of the market, we wanted an agent that would give our house the same attention as a more expensive one, and that they did. Their advice was spot on, and I feel they extracted the maximum value for us from our house and helped us avoid any pitfalls during the process. This has been by far the smoothest real estate transaction we have experienced. I would give them my highest recommendations.

This letter is being written to not only express a commendation in regard to Sammamish Realty for their true professionalism and personalized service, but to offer a sincere and heartfelt recommendation.
For any potential seller of real estate that desires the aforementioned attributes in a neighborhood real estate company combined with great communication, a sense of urgency and keen attention to detail; one would need to look no further than Scott and Kim Bobson at Sammamish Realty.
I first met Scott and Kim nearly 18 months ago when my family was in need of selling our Sammamish home due to a career transfer to Colorado. After being on the market for a few weeks (in the valley of the recession), we were presented with an offer to rent our home for 12-14 months – an offer we could not refuse. Not only did Scott and Kim accept our decision in a very positive manner, but they helped to facilitate the entire leasing of our home. A short time ago, our renters moved out of our home and I immediately turned to Sammamish Realty. Within 48 hours of my call to Scott, our home was listed, on the market and the sign was in the yard. Within five (5) days, we received competing offers (above current market value) and we were under contract.

Sammamish Realty: Professional, Personalized, Efficient and Communicative. They work for YOU.
I appreciate the opportunity to recommend Scott & Kim Bobson and Sammamish Realty to any home seller or buyer.
When we made the decision to sell our Sammamish home in order to move to the Sacramento area, we didn't hesitate to reach out to Sammamish Realty. This decision was solely based on the great experience we had working with you and your team when selling and buying our home over 8 years ago. The incredible service and support you provided us throughout both the buy and sell process back then was still fresh in our minds. We could not have been happier with our decision to put our trust in you once again.
From the moment we started thinking about selling, right up to the final signatures, your team once again went out of your way to exceed our expectations in every aspect of the process. Prior to our house going on the market, your expertise shone through in researching and developing a pricing strategy. Kim, your excellent taste and skill in staging our house really made it look and present better than it ever had before (thus the term "Kim up my house ").
Even though we were unable to take advantage of your skills on the buying end, you went out of your way to find a great agent in the Sacramento area and continued to provide us expert guidance and advice remotely throughout the purchase process. Although there was little in it for you, you graciously allowed us to take advantage of our trust in you by leaning heavily on you for advice in all aspects of purchasing a home in a completely different state.
In these complicated times, we were amazed at the speed in which you were able to get us a very strong offer for our house. During the post offer process, we certainly had a few curveballs thrown at us, but you were willing to call in personal favors, gain outside expertise and use your finely tuned negotiation skills to help make sure we were able to keep our buyer and close on time.
It is very rare that you build such a strong trust and excellent rapport when you work with most any sales agents. Your impeccable integrity and deep expertise of the area combined with your friendly, calm professional attitude made it easy for us to do that. Even though we don 't expect be able to take advantage of your services again anytime soon, we wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Sammamish area.
Thank you for all you have done for us,
Ronan and Terese
Scott and Kim Bobson of Sammamish Realty are an amazing team! They understand today’s market and what buyers seek. We are so glad we decided to list our home with them. Kim transformed our 21 years of accumulated stuff into an amazing show piece, one we would have liked to live in for a few years!
Our home sold in less than a week, just as Scott said it would, with multiple offers coming in over the list price. When a potential deal breaker issue raised its head after the dreaded septic inspection, Scott sprang into action on a Friday afternoon. After multiple calls to the Septic company, the escrow company, and the buyer’s agent, he proposed a deal that was a win-win for all parties, and we were able to closer on time!
Scott and Kim are down-to-earth, easy going and definitely know their craft and their business. We value their opinions so much we called on them to help us buy our new home in the Olympia area. Whether buying or selling a home, we highly recommend Scott & Kim.
