Thank you again George for being THE BEST
Hi George Now that it is all said and done I wanted to thank you once more for your help care and concerns during my recent condominium purchase. Your professionalism made every step of the way seem effortless and I appreciated the sense of humor in dealing with the difficult negotiations. I have bought a few properties in my life but having you as a real estate agent for this purchase surpassed all my past experience and expectations. Thank you again George for being THE BESTRumi Grumblatt, Bellevue WA

Hi George Lian and I highly appreciate your time and efforts for the house we bid in Woodridge. Youre an exceptional agent thinking from the side of your clients instead of pushing the deal through. We are glad that we found you and we would highly recommend you to our friends.Lian Jolene Jiang
George brings the exact right balance of listening problem solving and leadership to the role of a true Buyer’s Agent
George is the consummate professional with integrity knowledge experience and skill to back up his expert opinions in real estate. We have worked together on only one or two transactions but from my perspective George brings the exact right balance of listening problem solving and leadership to the role of a true Buyer’s Agent. Instead of a confrontational style with Seller’s Agents he favors the collaborative approach that always leads to better results and happier clients. His unique experiences in home building allow him to speak with great authority on the features and benefits of new versus “used” and the differences in Builder A from Builder B which is a true value to his clients and sets him apart in our industry. I greatly look forward to George and I working together on many future salesPaul Foster Regional Site Manager DR Horton

The Best Search Device
Hi George As I have said before you have the best search device I have ever seen because it allows me to keep track of all the properties still in my criteria. Is there a way for me to go in and alter my criteria I know you have set this based on what we discussed but I may be curious to see potentially what other areas are available through your search.John Hildenbrand
Thank u so much George for all you have done for my family in finding us a great home to live in and with helping us get rid of the old one. The way you handled everything and put up with all my calls and questions was a great help to me. So again thank you and thank you and I will tell everyone I know how great you and your team is.Derek Tressa Shields
