We had a complex real estate transaction in Bellevue, at one of the toughest times for real estate sales. We needed a real estate agent team with a full set of skills to take us from the start to a successful conclusion. We were very fortunate to receive a referral to Mimi Bemis and John Young! Even during some of real estate's darkest hours, their positive energy, their knowledge of the real estate market and contracts, and their staging abilities were excellent. In addition, they went the extra mile and took on many "chores" that would have been done by the owners.....if the owners lived in town.....which we did not. Mimi and John are simply the best! Their synergy combines for a wonderful wrap-around feeling of "can-do" and confidence. We would recommend them to anyone.

I had the pleasure of working with Mimi Bemis in the sale of my Kirkland condo last year. Having bought and sold a number of times, Mimi stands out to me as exceptional in her field. From the very onset, Mimi demonstrated a level of professionalism that appealed to my business sense. She came to our first meeting with research and invaluable perspective on pricing, marketing strategies and well thought out timelines.
Early on Mimi and John came through the condo with a "hit" list of items that needed to be taken care of prior to listing the condo. The items were all reasonable and affordable but made a tremendous impact when it came to showing my condo. It was wonderful to have the staging done in a way that still left my home livable. Mimi developed a marketing strategy, complete with time lines to gain the highest visibility. Her substantial network kept interest high at a time when condos were becoming difficult to move.
Mimi demonstrated true objectivity when offers came in and helped me with invaluable perspective about the offers. Throughout the entire process, from beginning to end, she kept me informed, she was readily available to answer questions and her professionalism was unparalleled. Her service did not stop with the sale of the condo: she even provided guidance for the moving process. I always felt I was in highly capable hands.
I recommend Mimi Bemis as a top-notch realtor.

Describe the service you received from your agent:
---Exemplary commitment, support, and enthusiasm. Those were important parts. An honest and genuine individual who sincerely cared about providing the best service. Many thanks for that.
Did your agent do anything to exceed your expectations?
---Taking care of the details such as the photographer and staging some of the rooms which included installing window treatments. Use of the informational placards throughout the house worked well in highlighting certain attributes and features, as though our agent was at the house all the time and pointing out these attributes whenever there was a showing.

Mimi Bemis was our listing agent for two properties near Seward Park, and also represented us in the purchase of our new home in West Seattle. Her staging advice and sales strategies helped us sell our properties in an amazingly short time frame, and with her assistance we negotiated a favorable purchase price for our new home which closed in record time. Mimi was on top of every issue that came up from beginning to end of the transactions. Her dedication and availability to us was phenomenal; she showed us more than 25 homes before we found the right one. I can enthusiatically recommend Mimi without reservation, whether you're buying or selling, or both!

Mimi was very professional and ethical. She was always honest and truthful with us. We had never sold a home before and she was patient with our sometimes naive questions and concerns. Mimi always responded promptly to our texts, phone calls, and e-mails. This woman is a hard worker and really knows her business. Both Mimi and John have our respect and friendship forever.
