"Sold 2 homes, one in Seattle another in Des Moines, with Tony in 2016. We made a plan together, got everything prepared then posted for sale. Both were sold within 10 days. All of my questions and concerns were met with clear and knowledgeable advice. I can recommend Tony to anyone - he knows this business." C. Blake, SF Bay Area
"Great experience! In a really tough sellers market Tony helped me persevere to find the right place. Other options had arisen but Tony reminded me of what we were looking for and that we would eventually find it. Marissa was also helpful and steered me away from a property that I was considering "settling for." It was a pleasure to look at properties with both Tony and Marissa, I give them my highest recommendation!" G. Rolnick, Seattle
"Marisa is so easy to work with. She was available at very short notice for multiple viewings, and her no pressure style was perfect for us. She's also a genius at helping sort out what offer to make. Her work on the comps for the house we just bought was outstanding - in this insane market, we offered under list and got the house based on her research." F. Spencer, Seattle
"Tony & Marisa provided us with great home buying experience from start to finish. They are a great team and complement each other well. They are both very quick with responses and research which we truly appreciated. In addition, we needed some help prodding the bank on a few issues and they did this quite well."R. Flynn, Seattle
"Tony was my real estate agent for a recent home purchase in Seattle. He was a pleasure to work with and added a great deal of value to the entire process. His expertise on the neighborhoods and local markets was extremely helpful given that I am new to the area. He is also very knowledgeable about home construction and has a keen eye for spotting important details in both newer and older homes. I've worked with several real estate agents in other cities and Tony is by far the best I've seen. I recommend him highly." D. Afshartous, Seattle
"Tony was great and incredibly patient with us. He took the time to understand what our likes and dislikes were, managed our expectations when necessary and was always available to answer our questions. Tony's calm pragmatism and good humor made what could have been a stressful experience both fun and easy and we would happily recommend his services to friends." R. Evans, Seattle
"Tony and Marisa were absolutely amazing to work with! I couldn't imagine having a better experience. Tony is a consummate professional with invaluable knowledge of local real estate. We are first time buyers and Tony made a potentially complicated process in an incredibly competitive environment feel surprisingly comfortable. He has an easygoing personality but at the same time is on top of every detail, which is ultimately what enabled us to get the home we purchased. Tony was available any and every time we needed him. His negotiating skills are unmatched and we were able to purchase the perfect home in the perfect neighborhood for even less than we thought. We will be working with Tony for any future transactions we may have. Thank you Tony and Marisa!" M. DeFrancesco, Seattle
Tony and his partner are fantastic to work with. They held several open houses, tolerated our constant questions and were always pleasant and available. Tony has lived in the Puget Sound for many years and knows the market well. I highly recommend Tony to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the greater Seattle area. T. Kooy, Norway Hill, Bothell
I couldn't have asked for a better real estate agent. As a first time home buyer I knew very little about the process and almost nothing about the Seattle market.
After a few lackluster experiences with some real estate agents I was a little frustrated. I found that many will provide comments about style or decor of homes which is not useful. Tony on the other hand had an impressive repertoire. Due to his knowledge of structure and water drainage I was able to avoid buying a very unfortunately constructed townhouse.
After I had decided on a home, he recommended a very reliable mortgage brokerage that worked hard to get me a loan. Meanwhile he was communicative without being pushy. And was present at all important inspections and events. Best of all, since Tony is associated with Redfin, I was able to get the same credit that Redfin agents provide their customers. It was best of both worlds! Redfin benefit without the somewhat apathetic participation of Redfin agents.
Even after the home purchase I have called Tony with random questions that he is happy to answer. And he has suggested reliable agencies for home maintenance. I recommend him fully! V. Shah, Seattle
"Tony helped me find my first home. A few other realtors turned me away because I was looking at some short sale and foreclosed properties, but Tony was fast to respond and didn't mind that it might be extra work to close on these homes. I was also worried about even attempting to buy a house in case a realtor might think I'm not worth their time because of my age, but Tony never even gave a hint that I might be a waste of his time.
I was looking for a structurally sound home that I could do extra work on to make it beautiful. He listened to what I was looking for and I really appreciated his honesty - If he didn't think a home was a good fit for me, he openly told me "I don't think this is worth it". I needed that extra input because this is a big decision, and I'm doing it all by myself. Tony has a good idea of what kind of work you have to do on a home that will increase the value of the home versus the kind of work that will just be a money sink but is necessary to make the place livable. He also has first hand experience in how much certain jobs should cost if you would have to make a major repair to the house and can recommend contractors to help you. Even after I bought the house, Tony still said he's available to recommend experts for the many projects I have planned to fix up my house.
Overall, I'm very happy I found Tony to help me with this process. He was friendly and extremely helpful. He obviously loves his job and prioritizes your best interest. Buying a house is scary, but Tony is calming and makes it fun." D. Sulas, Seattle - First Time Buyer
I really enjoyed working with Tony, I was operating on a tight budget and he was more then willing to work through some of the difficulties that came along with it. He was always available, even answering questions and working through the deal while on vacation. I would highly recommend working with Tony as he is very knowledgeable about all the ins and outs of home buying. B. Carlson, Seattle - First Time Buyer
I originally engaged Tony to help my find my "dream house" in an area with very limited inventory. It took well over a year before an appropriate house came on the market but Tony was diligent during all that time: keeping an eye on the market and keeping me informed of the steps he was taking to find the perfect house. He even talked to current residents of the area to make sure he was informed of houses coming onto the market!
I ended up with the perfect house and a hassle free purchase. I was so pleased with the way Tony represented me during the purchase of my new home that I listed my old house with him. Again, he was knowledgeable, always there when I had a question and we sold the house within a week. Words cannot express how helpful he was -- everything from staging my home to untangling my title to the property!
If this system had 10 stars, that is how I would rate Tony as an agent for buyers or sellers. Also, he's just a really nice guy to work with! K. Mooney, Sammamish River, Kenmore - Seller/Buyer
Great guy, great Realtor. Use him! S. White, Phinney Ridge, Seattle
Tony helped me sell my condo quickly despite issues with the board and a sticky special assessment. I would use him again without hesitation. He also helped me identify and coordinate a stager, contractors, cleaning, and a photographer (who he paid for) in order to get the place ready to sell. R. Cunningham, University District, Seattle - Seller
After being very dissatisfied with the first broker, I hired Tony to list my house because of his professionalism and overall knowledge in real estate. He was very knowledgeable about the structure of my house, wetland and onsite sewage system, Tony did an excellent job marketing my house; he hired a professional photographer to take photos of the house; he posted very clear and beautiful virtual tours and photos on the MLS and created glossy and expensive flyers, He was genuinely honest, always answered his phone calls live,( not voice mail) answered his emails immediately, and on top of all developments about the sale of the house. In addition to selling my house in just six days, he got more dollars for the house ( house sold more than the listed price). Unlike other brokers who try to inflate their market analysis to buy your listing, Tony's market analysis was accurate and reflected the true market value of the property. Tony has very strong negotiation skills and easy to work ( knows how to work with you from the start to the end). I will definitely recommend Tony to family members and friends whenever they are ready to sell and/or buy a house. M. Devera, Renton - Seller
"Tony was an absolute pleasure to work with. Being a first-time buyer, I really didn’t know what to expect. Tony proved to be a knowledgeable agent and an all-around great guy. He consistently emailed asking for updates or if he could help with anything and did not hesitate to take time off his weekends to take me on tours. When I finally found the one, Tony got right to work on the closing process, and within a month and a half, I got the keys to my new townhouse! I would definitely recommend working with Tony whether you’re a first-time buyer like me, or if you’re a guru at the game. Tony really knows his stuff, and will help you find the perfect home." H. Tran, Seattle - First Time Buyer
Tony did a wonderful job of helping us navigate the sale of our property! First-time sellers so we required a bit of hand holding even though the market environment was good. Great insights on needed maintenance/upgrades; very resourceful. Fantastic communicator. Would definitely use Tony again! L. Tubbs, Bellevue - Seller
"Tony Ogden was very welcoming with my family and always accommodating to any number of needs. He understood what my desired neighborhoods were and knew the area very well, which made navigating the market much easier. Always on call, Tony was willing to go the extra mile to make things happen quickly and effortlessly. This proved crucial in my purchase as we ended up doing a pre-inspection and making an offer within just a few hours of the property being listed. Tony was able to expedite the process while always keeping me looped in and ensuring I understood what was happening and why. This was most valuable when competing in multiple offer situations which we did on multiple occasions. Overall a stellar experience with Tony. My family and I would recommend his service all day long!" J. Darlington, Queen Anne, Seattle - First Time Buyer
Tony is a remarkable Real Estate professional! Tony viewed our home, devised a plan for improvements and upgrades in order to have the "wow" factor and not have the home sit on the market for any length of time. We followed his tactical advice by upgrading the kitchen and baths, an internal repaint and a few new floors. When the upgrades were complete, Tony unleashed his photographer who by the way has a great creative eye and shot away. Tony had the marketing materials produced and had the home on his web-site right away, the home looked astonishing! Tony ran the open house and we had a full price offer in a day and a half. Do we need to say more? Thanks Tony, you did a terrific job in listing and selling our home, we're actually sad to see it go, however; it's nice not to have two mortgages, thanks for saving us time and money with all your professional advice and hard work. S. Higgins, Port Orchard - Seller
I had a great experience working with Tony. He was very helpful and patient. It took us nearly 4 months to find our home and he stuck with us through it all. I would highly recommend Tony because our home closed smoothly. He was prompt and quick in the getting back to our underwriter with documents! No matter what time of day. And most importantly, he was flexible. I had a few appointments that I had to reschedule with him and he was open to the changes with no hesitation. He is great and fun to work with! Thanks for your help Tony! We love our new condo on Mercer Island! J. Amy, Mercer Island - First Time Buyer
Tony was very professional and really helped me get into my first home. He has vast knowledge of the area, market, and is very easy to talk to. M. Mitchell, Seattle - First Time Buyer
Tony was very attentive to our needs and was always available to meet with us or answer questions pretty much 24/7. We had a bumpy transaction with our lender and Tony helped us through it all the way. I. McKissick, Maple Leaf, Seattle
"Last year Tony Ogden assisted my husband and I to find and purchase our dream home! We had such a great experience that we wanted to recommend his services any time we can. Tony is a great real estate agent and an amazing professional. He listens and always puts his clients wants and needs first, making sure that you find the perfect home without the stress. A great communicator with a deep knowledge of the industry and current market.
If you are thinking of purchasing a property definitely work with Tony Ogden! I know because I was in the industry for over 10 years and I would never make a real estate transaction or purchase without him!"
Tony Ogden helped me and my fiance find an incredible home in the Bellevue area fulfilling all our wants and needs. I know when someone is good considering my background of over 20 years in remodeling and construction and over 10 years in mortgage and real estate. So, this is an opinion of an expert. I highly recommend Tony he is extremely knowledgeable regarding building structure, construction cost, foreclosures and short sales. And most of all he will listen to your whats and needs and make sure you find the property of your dreams. Tony Ogden is a professional you can trust! J. Lewis, Tam O'Shanter, Bellevue
Tony is an amazing agent. Three key skills make him a standout:
1) Tony simply makes the process easy. Tony invests time in prep work to ensure the time we spent with him looking at homes was efficient and productive.
2) Tony has deep construction/building knowledge. As we visited potential properties, Tony was able to point out trouble spots.
3) Tony intimately understands the market and the negotiation process. During the time we were looking for a home, the market was moving quickly (sales occuring within a day or even before the house hit the market). Tony expertly advised and navigated us through the deal successfully, Although our offer was $45k less than a competitor, we still won the bid because our total offer package was more compelling to the seller.
Tony, thank you for finding us a beautiful new home that meets all our needs. And making the experience so easy! T. Hua, Green Lake, Seattle - Investor
"Tony helped us find and close on a house in the very desirable Green Lake area. It was an outstanding experience working with Tony. He not only was very knowledgeable about the neighborhoods we were interested in, but also very knowledgeable about the conditions of the properties he showed us. He came prepared to the showings and was great a pre-selecting properties according to our criteria and thus not wasting our time. When looking at houses he went down in the basement with us explaining the condition of heating systems and wiring. A very different experience compared to other agents we had worked with in the past who's main contribution was to unlock doors. I highly recommend Tony." C. Huber, Seattle - Investor
Tony is a world class professional. He is very knowledgeable and helpful. I will definitely call on Tony again when the need arises. I would highly recommend Tony to anyone. D. Routh, Duvall
Tony is very easy to work with. He is enthusiastic and is willing to do whatever it takes to help his client find the right home in the right place within his client's price range. His dedication and professionalism is commendable. Through his hard work and effort he help us find a home in Kenmore that we ended up purchasing. We highly recommend Tony to anyone looking for an ideal home to purchase. M. Babcock, Kenmore
Tony listened to my needs and helped find the home that fit my lifestyle and budget. He was great at identifying areas of potential concern and provided creative recommendations while brainstorming around my vision for upgrades and improvements to the homes we reviewed. He was always very flexible with my busy schedule and took advantage of all of the technology at his disposal to make the process much easier. Tony is a great agent that I'd be happy to work with again. B. Ludeman, Newcastle
As a first time home-buyer Tony helped find the right home to fit my active lifestyle and one that brought me almost instant equity. Here are a few things that set him apart from other realtors: As a professional cyclist, most of my day is spent on the bicycle so on multiple occasions Tony joined me during my training to show homes via bicycle in addition to the numerous properties he we drove in his car. Tony's insights were critical in evaluating homes including distressed properties and helped me to decide which options were best for me. Tony always responded to my requests quickly via phone, text, or email no matter the time of day. Once we found the right property, I was fortunate enough to utilize Tony as a savvy negotiator who enabled multiple closing extensions allowing me more time to secure the right type of financing for the purchase of my first home. If you're looking for an experienced realtor who delivers unrivaled service I highly recommend Tony to do your next real estate transaction. M. Schmidt, Woodinville
We set out what seemed an almost impossible task... buying a home in a hurry and on a limited budget that the whole family would love. We all wanted something specific and not just any house would do. We physically looked at over 25 houses before we found "the one". Tony worked with us 7 days a week to help us. Evenings, early mornings, it didn't matter he did what it took to get the job done. He was helpful and friendly whenever we called or met. I would recommend him to anyone. Thanks Tony for helping us find a home we could afford and we all love. M. Gilstrap, Kenmore
