Rated Rita Harris on Zillow: 5 Stars

Rita was fantastic to work with and I would highly recommend her!   It’s a competitive marketplace right now, and Rita was the reason we were able to get to the front of the line when multiple offers were on the table.

She was consistent with communication to both my husband and I as well as the  listing agent and loan officer. Her attention to detail was impeccable and her knowledge of the industry made me feel confident with her recommendations and overall process.

Rated Rita Harris on Zillow: 5 Stars

Very satisfied with Rita as my realtor (I just closed on a house last Friday with her assistance).

Here are some of the things Rita did that I found valuable:
1. Listened Carefully: I quickly noticed that Rita was very good about picking up on and tracking exactly what I was saying and looking  for.
2. Took Initiative: After looking at one house, I mentioned off-handedly that I would be doing some research into transmit times from there to locations X, Y and Z. By the time I got home, she had already done the research for me and sent me a PDF detailing exactly that, without being asked. Plenty of other examples, too.
3. Very Responsive: I hate to admit it, but it’s possible I may have sent a few emails with questions late into the evening (sorry, Rita), and she responded within the hour pretty much every time.
4. Communicated Clearly: Written and verbal communications on-point. No confusion at any time with…“Huh? What?”.
5. Good Problem-Solving: During my review of the paperwork, I misread one thing on the appraisal document and was getting a little flustered. Rita took a look at the document and explained how I misread the diagram. Problem Solved.  
Earlier, there was an item in the contract that was (actually) in error, and she worked with me and the selling agent to get it changed. Done.

Bottom line, my experience with Rita is that she is friendly, effective and gets the job done. And lastly, she is easy to be around, which is also important as these projects tend to take longer than you think they will. At least it did for me. Anyhow, hope that helps anyone out there looking for a great realtor. Good luck all.

Liebe Rita,

I wanted to write to you to say thank you for all you’ve done for me to help me sell my log cabin on the lake after my husband died.  It was a very hard time for me.  We had lived in the house for many, many years.  I was lonely, not knowing what to do next.  With my health issues, the decision to move to assisted living had to be made so someone could help me.

I miss our home where we held many Christmas and birthday parties, rowed out in the boat to go fishing, the baby ducks we would have each spring, our beautiful flower gardens.  I will always have those memories.

I don’t know what I would’ve done without your help and professionalism.  You answered all my questions, organized everything and everyone, helped me to get packed and recommended me into a good place to live.  If it weren’t for you and my niece Rosie, it would be so horrible.  You mean so much to me.

Nochmal vielen dank,
Marile Snyder, “Honig Tante”

Commended Rita Harris, Thank You Note

Yesterday I just happened to drive past the condo building in Edmonds we had so much trouble with, with their board.

Then when I got home, I thought, “This place is really SO much better than that place!”

I just wanted to thank you again for all the hard work and time you put into finding and painting my new home.  I just can’t express enough how grateful I am and how fortunate I am to have friends like you and Louise. 

Thank you so much for everything you have done for me.
