    "I cannot recommend Larissa highly enough!"

    I cannot recommend Larissa highly enough. I decided to sell my home of 23 years and was fortunate to have Larissa as my agent. Larissa and I sat down to discuss all aspects of putting the home on the market. Before our conversation I was really at a loss on what was the best way to proceed.My home hadn’t been updated and was showing its age. Larissa explained the current market and recommended I consider a several updates to get the most value from our sale. She impressed me so much with her knowledge and approach that I asked if she could manage the remodel process. I left every decision up to her judgement. She decided on what I spent money on and what I didn’t. Her communication throughout the process was amazing and she documented every detail. She was also extremely frugal with my money. Larissa used her incredible network to get all the work done in an incredibly short time (2 months). We ended up painting the entire interior, replacing all the floors, rebuilding the deck, a complete kitchen remodel and a bit more. The transformation was absolutely stunning. The result was after a 10% investment, the house sold with multiple offers and went for 56% (I’m not kidding) more than I had hoped before the remodel. I was even a little worried that we were listing it for too high a number, but I trusted Larissa throughout the whole process and wasn’t going to stop at the end. The final sale was 26% higher than our asking. Thank you Larissa!!

    " Please don't hesitate in choosing her has your agent!"

    Larissa has been AMAZING to work with. She was an absolute wealth of information leading up to our sale to help us prepare everything. We then sold our house while moving cross country - and wanted to ensure our house sold as quickly as possible. It was so great knowing we had Larissa in charge,because of all the stressful things happening, we never had to worry about details, or about the process itself. I completely trusted Larissa as she had proven herself over & over leading up to the sale that she was trustworthy, honest, reliable, incredibly quick to respond....etc!!! And she did not let us down at all. She ensured we had an amazing offer and things closed as timely as possible. Please don't hesitate in choosing her has your agent!

    "Could not recommend her enough!"

    Larissa did an amazing job selling our home in West Seattle. When my partner and I moved to Seattle we met Larissa as we were looking for a place to rent, not only did she manage to find us an excellent spot but then a year later helped us purchase our first home a year later.Then five years later she helped us sell our home in a quick and easy way! Could not recommend her enough since she is one of the warmest considerate agents one could ever have the pleasure to work with! Plus, Woody is pretty awesome too!

    "We are SO incredibly thankful!"

    We are SO incredibly thankful to have Larissa assist us in purchasing a weekend getaway in an area we knew very little about. While exploring the property, we nearly walked away and missed out on securing it due to misinformation provided to us from an outside source. Thanks to Larissa's expertise,tenacity, and partnerships we ended up having a flawless purchasing experience and couldn't be more grateful. In addition to Larissa's exceptional knowledge, she was an absolute joy to work with and we highly recommend her for your real estate needs.

    "Larissa was just terrific!"

    Larissa was just terrific. She provided great guidance on what needed to be done to my 20 year old townhouse to get it ready to sell, and kept the ball rolling. I took her advice on pricing and the result was a quick sale $25,000 over the list price. I have already recommended her to others,and will continue to do so.

    "Larissa is wonderful to work with. "

    We discovered a perfect home for us with only 3 hours left before offers were due. Larissa, very quickly, worked with the listing agent, got us a viewing and helped us submit an offer that was accepted that day! Larissa made our home buying experience, in Seattle's very hot market, a breeze.

    "I love my new home and I give all the thanks to Larissa!"

    I am very glad I found Larissa via social media. I highly recommend her, she did an outstanding job. I couldn't have asked for anyone else to be my Realtor!!! Upon meeting her, I had a great feeling and she left an awesome impression. She has a warm, friendly, and approachable personality and just really listens to one.I've done some basic research about home buying but Larissa is an amazing resource. Especially for a hot market like Seattle, her knowledge was helpful. I will always be grateful for all the help she provided. She worked around my busy schedule and was sending me listings that I might be interested in, that was helpful bc at times I was too busy to search for it myself. She truly had my best interest in mind and I am glad I trusted her. She was my advocate. When things would come up Larissa was very proactive in finding answers and making calls for me, so helpful. I love my new home and I give all the thanks to Larissa!! Thank you so much!!!

    "Extremely happy!"

    Larissa helped me and my wife buy our West Seattle house and also helped sell our Klee condo in Belltown. Larissa worked incredibly hard on both of our deals and was extremely responsive to any of our questions or requests. She was very attuned to the latest market conditions and provided us with straightforward and honest advice.At no time did we feel pressured to buy or sell or for that matter follow her advice exactly (we did anyways). We were especially happy with the results of our sale of the Klee condo and the strategy Larissa helped employ. We had multiple offers over ask and even received offers over our "extremely happy" price. No doubt Larissa will be helping us in the future with our real estate transactions.

    "Thank you Larissa!"

    Larissa helped me find and purchase a property in Seattle's Magnolia neighborhood. Her knowledge of the Central/North Seattle neighborhoods and connections in the industry helped us quickly identify a good property (location, building specs, value for money) and to position an offer accepted by the Seller within a day.In addition to what I would expect as core service offered by an agent, she was very helpful in introducing me to a good lender (service quality, ease of doing business), giving me tips and recommendations on how to avoid risks and delays in the closing process and introducing me to a property manager after closing on the property. Throughout the process she remained highly engaged, energetic, upbeat and amazingly quick to contact me or respond to any queries I or the lender had about the property. to put things in context, I live in Singapore but with her help the entire "house hunt", offer and closing process went seamlessly and very fast. Thank you Larissa!

    "I highly recommend her!"

    Larissa's expertise in real estate and knowledge of the downtown Seattle condo market was priceless in enabling me to purchase my first home back in 2016. Fast forward to 2020 and Larissa's knowledge once again proved valuable when it came time to sell my condo, especially during a difficult downtown condo market for seller's.Larissa has provided unmatched communication and was able to fulfill my needs and desires in both scenarios. Larissa is amazing to work with and I highly recommend her! There's no one else I trust in helping me with my real estate needs.

    "Larissa is an expert and so knowledgeable!"

    Larissa was recommended to us by our landlord as soon as we shared that we were looking for a home. We were first-time homebuyers and a little nervous about finding a home in Kirkland within our budget, that didn't require significant renovation. Since we were new to the process,Larissa walked us through everything we needed to know about where to look for homes, which lenders to work with, and how to be prepared to make an offer. She also helped us decide on what kind of property was best for us (condo, townhome, or house). Larissa was just "hands off" enough - she let us have our space and really find what we wanted, without bugging us every day about new listings. Once we found the perfect Kirkland condo, Larissa was ON it and we got mutual on the first offer we put in! She was always available and quick to respond, and really helped us keep on top of all the tasks we needed to complete. Even though we had some complications with our loan, the buying process was a snap because Larissa is an expert and so knowledgeable. We would recommend her to anyone!

    "Larissa is a must have on your team!"

    Highly recommend! Larissa is a must have on your team whether you're selling or buying. She knows the industry extremely well and has all the right connections from contractors to brokers. She'll work for you and make the process straightforward and painless. Her negotiation skills really made her shine.We initially had one offer at review deadline, but she managed to convince a 2nd buyer to put in an offer and the bids escalated from there. Suffice it to say we were blown away with the closing offer.

    Larissa is amazing in all regards, and I trust her implicitly. She advised me on market conditions to find the perfect time to see vs. rent, is incredibly responsible and proactive, has a great knowledge of all the Seattle neighborhoods, and is an excellent negotiator. Plus, and this can't be expressed enough,she is a pure joy to work with... always smiling and fun. I would highly recommend her.

    "I would HIGHLY recommend Larissa!"

    Thank you Larissa for selling our sweet little Seattle home and helping us move out to the country. Larissa's knowledge of the Seattle market is outstanding. She knew right where to list it and got us tip-TOP dollar. It's easy to underestimate the amount of work that goes into selling a home and Larissa was there each step of the way to ensure nothing was missed -- met with the stagers,inspectors (we pre-inspected and provided the report to all potential buyers) coordinated a couple repairs prior to listing, marketed and hosted our open houses, responded to EVERY single question we had that came up and basically immediately. If she didn't have the answer right away she'd still respond and let us know when she would have an answer for us or who we needed to talk with in order to get our question answered (mostly loan questions, rates, etc.). She coordinated and kept in contact with our loan officer, and the list goes on. The process of listing and selling our home was seamless. Most importantly, I felt like we were a team. She guided us through this process, brainstormed with us, helped figure out what was most important to us for buying and selling. I would HIGHLY recommend Larissa any day to anybody in the market to buy or sell a home in the Seattle area, you will not be disappointed.

    "She knows the business very well!"

    I worked w/ Avenue One Residential for several years renting my condo. When I decided to sell, I asked my agent @ Avenue One for a Real Estate Broker referral, and I was given a few names and decided to go with Larissa Sweeney. She knows the business very well and I was very pleased with the end result.My place was staged and on the market & sold in no time. There were multiple offers and Larissa handled it very nicely. She negotiated the best possible price/terms for me, and the entire process was seamless. She is awesome! I would definitely work with her again!

    "I highly recommend her as your real estate agent!"

    This was my second time working with Larissa and I have to say I highly recommend her as your real estate agent. She is very responsive and works quickly. She makes sure to give you reasonable advice when making an offer and is in constant contact with other agents. She helped me sell my home and purchase a new one.She took the time to learn the neighborhood and took care of everything (photography, staging, she even did a little yard work for me to help with the curb appeal!). What she recommended for pricing the home was perfect. I trusted her completely through this process of selling and buying and I plan to work with her again in the future if our housing needs change.

    "She found us the perfect house!"

    Larissa was awesome in every way! Knowledgeable, dependable, gave great advice, VERY responsive, got right on EVERYTHING - phone calls were made immediately, every question I had was answered in a very timely manner, she listened to what we wanted....everything one would want in a real estate professional.I especially appreciated how if she was slightly unsure of something she would double check rather than risk misleading us in any way - we felt very secure in her hands, and trust is an important thing when you are talking about this kind of money being spent. She was very patient and helpful through our two near miss deals (no fault of hers, crazy market here) - and then she found us the perfect house! We are very happy with her professionalism and service and are already recommending her to friends.

    "She took control, knew exactly what to do!"

    Larissa is amazing. We put our Wallingford condo on the market in Spring of 2018. Selling the property seemed daunting, but Larissa made everything easy. She took control, knew exactly what to do, knew exactly how to make the unit sell for the best price possible.She was extremely communicative with me and explained every detail of the whole process. Whether buying or selling, Larissa will be the most knowledgeable and helpful realtor out there!
