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.
Need I say more?
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.

When we decided to list our house early 2010, we decided to go with the agent that had sold us the house originally, Scott and Kim Bobson. They had been extremely friendly and helpful eight years prior when I moved in, and left a lasting impression that made me think of them immediately when it came time for us to sell.
In one of the worst markets to sell a house, Scott and Kim did an excellent job of helping us find the right listing price, gave us great feedback when we needed to adjust the price, and kept us updated weekly on the activity of other comparable listings in our neighborhood. They offered excellent advice and answered our questions thoroughly during the entire process, and were a pleasure to deal with.
Kim did an excellent job of staging the house and making it look lovely. So much that I almost thought about keeping it! When we setup the listing, Kim went through the house with us and suggested things we should do to get it ready to sell, and she even went so far as to help us take care of some of it when we didn't think we'd get it done in time.
Scott was great with answering all our questions and very responsive, even giving us a call back when he was out of town for a graduation. His answers were always very thoughtful and honest, and helped ease some of the anxiety of selling a house.
Both Kim and Scott were a pleasure to do business with, make a great team, and I can't recommend them enough.
I am writing you this testimonial from Prescott, Arizona, where I now live, thanks to you. I want you both to know how thankful I am for your outstanding service in helping me sell my home (In only 9 days, wow!!)
You both were knowledgeable, professional, and extremely helpful in all that you did and said, and I thank you. I would be glad to use your services again and would recommend you to anyone looking for help in buying or selling their home.
Thank You- Sincerely,
I would like to thank you and compliment you on helping us with our move. After nearly 14 years on the Plateau to move was a big undertaking. Firstly, in selling our house that went off very well and your gentle guidance gave us the result we needed and FAST! We managed to get the deal we wanted in a very short period. They staged and made the house look picture perfect which made the sale very rewarding.
Of course, the big task was to go through the process of buying new construction. Once we had found the right place you gave us so much good advice on how to deal with the builder. Given the difficulties that we faced, and the delays imposed by the builder you stuck with us all the way through. We honestly feel that you both went above and beyond the normal call of duty and we could not have made it without you. Both of you working as a team made the effort worth it and it showed the consummate professionals that you both are.
A huge thank you from all of us. We look forward to welcoming you into the new home!

I can't say enough about Kim and Scott. They are an amazing team, complimenting each other's skills to give you the complete professional package. Compared to all our previous experiences purchasing or selling a home, this was by far the best.
Kim was so patient, showing us house after house; knowing when to offer insight or advice, but also when to step back and let us work through the process. Because of the crazy housing market, the process took a while for us, but she continued to offer her support and encouragement with a smile on her face.
Scott was always just a phone call away able to quickly research anything we needed, whether it was evaluating a price on a home, researching the market or preparing offers. His advice and wisdom negotiating the offer and contract were invaluable.
They make an amazing team. We felt confident and comfortable throughout the experience. We would both highly recommend them to anyone considering buying or selling a home. On a five-star system, we give them 5 plus.
