Market Knowledge

Relationships are important to us. Our drive to succeed for our clients gives them a competitive edge in the Greater Seattle market. As a certified negotiations expert, we write winning offers through property analysis and by creating a compelling buyer story. Our extensive knowledge of the local market and neighborhoods connects our clients to their ideal home. 


Our job is not simply to sell you a home or sell your home. We will support you every way we can. That is important to us. A home purchase is a very big decision but it is one of many big events that happen in your life. We don't feel like we can help you the way you deserve with your home purchase without remembering you at other points along the journey. It's really nice working for a company that believes the exact same thing we believe. We're a community here to help each other along the way. Buying or selling a home is one of the stops.

The Best

The process of finding a home can take months. You need someone who will help you find just what you need. You want a broker who will not rush you but will be with you to give you the resources along the way to make a good decision. You want someone honest and knowledgable. And you want a broker who will negotiate and represent you so that you get the best for you. That is what we are all about!

The Team

Merritt and Emily work as a team and have complimentary skill sets and persepectives. As a team, they provide comprehensive service to their clients and have extensive knowledge of the local Real Estate market. They are honest, devoted, professional, hard-working, competitive, positive, knowledgable, light-hearted and caring. The Hess Team feels very fortunate to wake up each day and do what they love. When not selling homes they enjoy anything related to the outdoors from skiing, hiking, fishing, camping and all things adventurous! Merritt played sports through college and can be fiercely competitive on the ping pong table, so watch out! This competitive personality translates well into real estate.
