"Rich Senecal was patient, thorough, and timely. After looking at countless homes, he was tireless and persistent and continued until we found exactly what I wanted."
G. Wharton – Kirkland, WA (10/21/2008)
"Rich has sold a number of my properties over the years and I have referred him to a number of friends and family. He prices my homes effectively so that I receive top dollar without extended time on the market. I would recommend his services highly."
A. MacIver – Seattle, WA (1/15/2009)
"I just finished my third closing with Rich and I can't imagine working with anyone else in the future. He walked me through each step of my purchases and answered every one of my million questions promptly, and with patience and good humor. His knowledge, dedication and experience were invaluable to me throughout the process of buying a home. It is always a pleasure working with Rich. I would easily recommend him to my friends and family."
D. Lambo – Bothell, WA (7/21/2010)
"I would like to express my highest appreciation and recommendation for Rich and Brandy Senecal for going beyond the usual scope of a listing agent. Rich spent countless hours on my behalf in getting my home sold and advised me in many of the additional aspects of selling and moving out of a home. His knowledge and genuine interest on my behalf is unsurpassed and I won't make a move again with out his assistance. I highly recommend him to all my friends and family."
L. McIntosh – Kirkland, WA (8/18/2010)
"Rich and Brandy are true professionals. Their integrity and skill - unmatched. Rich has helped me for over a decade buying and selling. I would never hesitate to recommend the Senecals. They are genuine and a pleasure to work with. "
Dr. & Mrs. Dreher – Snohomish, WA (9/4/2010)
"Navigating through the paperwork and taking care of all those things which help take the stress out of the process of home purchase in this volatile market are what Richard does best!"
D. Lee – Kirkland, WA (10/9/2010)
"The peace of mind you get from working with someone you can 100% trust on a home purchase is invaluable. I had a wonderful experience from start to finish with Rich. He was quick and consistent in communications and provided very helpful advice at each step along the way. Rich and Brandy made my international relocation back to the Pacific Northwest far less stressful than it could have been! Thanks Rich and Brandy!"
R. Olson – Bonney Lake, WA (12/5/2010)
"Working with Rich was a great!! My wife and I were searching for a first home together this past year and it wasn't so great until we got the right real estate agent. We had went through a couple agents before meeting Rich and his wife. Rich worked extensively to keep the price range I was looking to purchase in. After a dozen houses we found our home and our price range. Working with Rich was a great first time home buying experience and would recommend him to everyone I talk with."
Mr. & Mrs. Gage – Bothell, WA (12/6/2010)
"Rich and Brandy are professional and hard working agents. They worked diligently to sell our house in a tough market. Communication lines were always open. "
N. Hardt – Woodinville, WA (12/7/2010)
"Rich Senecal brought us all the way through the home buying process and made things simple and easy. We were first time home buyers, buying a home from out of state. What I appreciated most was his availability and his informed answers to my questions. If he wasn't sure of something he would research it and get back to us right away. We were unable to be in town for the inspection process and Rich met with the inspector for us. He later gave us a detailed account of how the inspection went and what needed to happen. We love our home in Woodinville, WA and feel so much gratitude towards Rich and Brandy for making our home purchase transaction go smoothly. I feel confident in referring their services to family and friends. "
C. James – Kirkland, WA (12/7/2010)
"Rich and Brandy were so easy to work with and made the entire process a breeze! They were very responsive and quick to show my husband and I houses we were interested in and very informative about the process. I know we got a great deal and everything we asked for because Rich was there negotiating for us. After we bought the house, Rich was quick to help us rent out our condo! The home buying process can be stressful, but a lot less so when you have Rich and Brandy working for you! "
K. Galbraith – Snohomish, WA (4/7/2011)
"I've bought and sold houses with Rich and Brandy for years. Not only are they my real estate team of choice but they have become close friends as well. They have guided my wife and I through this rough economy by providing sound advise and knowledge for our future home plans. I would highly recommend "Team Senecal" for any buyer or seller in Washington but especially the Greater Puget Sound. "
T. Colyn – Seattle, WA (4/17/2011)
"Richard and Brandy Senecal are the dream team! They helped me sell my last home and then buy my current home. I would not hesitate to use them again. They are respected leaders in the area, they know all the right people to help with financing, restaging, local contractors, anything you need. They returned my calls immediately, and spent days with me searching for my new home. They took care of every detail and made the whole process painless and easy. "
E. Baker – Seattle, WA (4/26/2011)
"Rich and Brandy are truly fantastic agents who approach their profession with enthusiasm! We started searching for a home in 2007 when the market was high-priced and competitive, a daunting market for a first-time home-buyer to walk into. But, team Senecal walked us through the process one step at a time and made the whole experience smooth and manageable. They readily shared their expertise for every little question we had. They honestly cared to get us the best value for our price range, and didn't hesitate to tell us if they thought a place wasn't a good fit. Since our purchase in 2007, they have continued their relationship with us as home experts, checking in every now and then to see how the house is. This winter they even took the time to stop by just to put insulation covers on our external faucets so our pipes didn't freeze! "
B. Coston – Kirkland, WA (6/24/2011)
"I was in a tight spot, trying to sell a house due to divorce. Richard and Brandy gave us great advice on getting the house and yard ready for sale, and in a bad economy got us a price for our house we could live with. After the sale they also helped me find a new place to live."
Mr. & Mrs. Anderson – Seattle, WA -(1/8/2012)
"Rich and Brandy were knowledgeable, professional and accessible and made our selling and buying experiences enjoyable. They did a great job of listening to what we were hoping to achieve and then developing a game plan to suit our needs. With their market knowledge they were able to price our home to sell in a buyers market while still exceeding our expectation of the home's value. Since our home sold much faster than we were expecting we were eager to find the right place to put an offer on. Rich worked around our schedules and over the course of one month showed us more homes than we could keep track of. After each tour he was able to offer insight on whether the home was over- or under-priced, how long he expected it to remain on the market and an estimate of the cost to make any repairs to the home. He also was great at reading our impressions of homes and offering positive perspective after we were priced out of a home that we were excited about. In the end we found our perfect home and have been so happy making it our own. We plan on being here a while but when the time comes to move again Rich and Brandy will be the first people we call."
M. Delaney – Kirkland, WA (2/13/2012)
"Rich and Brandy helped us to sell our home in Kirkland during a tough market and in a short amount of time. They then assisted us in purchasing our home in Port Orchard. They were incredibly knowledgeable, helpful and honest! Wonderful people that have become great friends. They are the ones you want to go to for any real estate needs!"
Dr. Kurt & Tina Finberg – Seattle, WA (02/26/2012)
"Wow!!! Brandy and Rich worked hard to get our price and they were successful. Brandy, with her contacts, effected timely repairs and beautifully staged the property. Rich's vision and negotiating skills brought home the deal. It sold in 2 days. We are so pleased to have worked with the Senecals in selling our Seattle home."
J.C. – Kirkland, WA (3/27/2012)
"Rich Senecal sold our house in Kirkland this last June 2011. He was extremely knowledgeable, and sold our house in a difficult market. He was right on, on pricing our home, and it sold! We even had a bidding war! We couldn’t have asked for a nicer person, who went above and beyond for us. We had a baby during all of this, and he was so helpful, and patient with us. Thanks Rich for selling our home, we wish you a blessed year, and lots of business."
Mr. & Mrs. Schafleitner – Kirkland, WA (12/27/2012)
"In a housing market with little inventory and the seemingly "good" houses flying off the market in less than a week's time before we could even get a foot in the door, we found ourselves intimated as first time home buyers. If it had not been for Rich and Brandy Senecal to navigate us through the complicated process that is "real estate", I think we would still be looking for a home! Even with his busy schedule, Rich always made time for us and showed us a variety of houses within our budget. He was able to quickly determine what we wanted in a home and was very honest in steering us away from houses with "cheep" construction and remodels, heavy traffic noise, and overall poor resale value. Rich was always one step ahead of the game and knew which new houses were coming to market before they were even posted. In a busy market, this is invaluable! One day in February, the stars aligned and Rich brought us to our dream home on the day is came to market (we were the first to view it). We made an offer the same day and Rich proved to be a fearless negotiator on our behalf. Rich also helped us navigate the mortgage process and his tip to visit a certain other mortgage broker ended up saving us thousands of dollars in closing costs! We have been in our home just over 3 months now and we still contact Rich to get tips for the best plumbers, housekeepers, handy-men, and various other contract work. It is no wonder Rich and Brandy Senecal are voted "Best in Client Satisfaction". We will definitely come to Rich again for future real estate transactions and recommend him to all our friends."
Robert Perry – 4/10/2013
"My wife and I hired Rich and Brandy to help us sell our condo when we were relocating out of Snohomish, WA. At the time back in 2011, it was still completely a buyer's market, and we would not have chosen to sell, except that our HOA had voted to impose a rental cap on our community, which took away any option we had of renting out our property. Realizing that time was of the essence Rich and Brandy found us an all cash buyer who appreciated the unique characteristics of our home, namely that it was a single story, handicapped accessible/designed unit. We were able to close in just a little over a month, with a sales price that ended up being above--and still is I might add--what comparable units were selling for in our community. Throughout the transaction Rich and Brandy were incredibly responsive, and during the listing process they were a tremendous help, working together with my wife to beautifully stage our home, ensuring it would be a quick sale. It is highly likely that I will be looking to buy in the Greater Seattle Area again within the next few years and I will definitely be giving Rich and Brandy a call when I do. If you have a home you're looking to sell, or if you're looking to buy in the near future, I would definitely recommend that you give Rich and Brandy a call as well--you will be glad you did!"
C. Medding – Kirkland, WA (3/14/14)
"We got lucky when a neighbor referred us to Rich and Brandy to sell our Kirkland home of 22 years. They worked hard and helped us every step of the way. They had great connections for getting work done that we needed. We followed their advice for clearing/repairing/refreshing/pricing the home and Rich and Brandy did a fantastic job of staging and marketing our home. We got a huge response to our home, it sold quickly, and we were thrilled with the final selling price. We believe the better than expected success we had selling our home was due following their advice which made our house a standout. We HIGHLY recommend Rich and Brandy. They know their business, they work hard, and they are genuinely wonderful, good people."
E. Mills – Kirkland, WA. (4/15/14)
"Our family knew selling our home could be challenging, due to unusual circumstances. Rich turned what would likely have been a lengthy, frustrating, and costly process into a sale that exceeded our needs. Rich managed to make it less stressful by remaining responsive, communicating with us at every step in the process, managing the pre-sale improvements and providing staging, and actively driving the sales process. Our home looked amazing. It sold when we needed it to sell. Rich is very knowledgeable about today's market, is a strong negotiator, maintains a calm and professional demeanor, and is an absolute pleasure to work with. We are grateful for what Rich did for us and impressed with how he accomplished it. We are thrilled to have a realtor we will stick with."
