There are a number of very good agents on the Island. We have had experience with many of them over the years (decades). But the creme de la creme, by a wide margin, is Maureen Buckley. She did an amazing job selling our house for a good and fare price. Her competency on timing, marketing, and execution is off the charts. Folks, I am telling you, there is none better. Edward is also very good, they make an incredible team.
We moved into a rental on Bainbridge Island in April of 2017 and the Buckley’s had found our dream house and property by November 2017. I don’t consider us being overly picky buyers but we were on a mission to find the right place and without Ed’s help we couldn’t have done it. Ed’s knowledge of the Island and the homes that were for sale was incredibly helpful to us. We tried to use our agent from Seattle but there was no comparison when it came to availability and Island specific expertise. One thing that we particularly liked about their approach was that we never felt pressured or made to feel guilty for showing us so many houses. We consider them friends now and are grateful that they have welcomed us to the Island and introduced us to so many great people.
Maureen has been an excellent real estate agent for my wife and I. She has represented us in the buying of vacant land (negotiating with a tough seller) as well as listing and selling our home. She has a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience which makes the selling and buying process much smoother. Maureen sets realistic expectations for the selling process and then delivers. We listed our home just before Thanksgiving and had an acceptable offer in four days. She is very organized and responsive. Both my wife and I would highly recommend Maureen for anyone looking to sell or purchase on Bainbridge Island.
