I’ve lived in Seattle for the past 25 years, and even though I am proudly from the East Coast (near the Berkshires), Seattle really does feel like home. Before I became a real estate agent, I spent many years designing, developing and marketing home products with several Seattle-based home and textile businesses. I see the potential of spaces and I have an eye for the details that matter most when you’re buying or selling a home.
“Deirdre Doyle did everything I thought possible and more. Her heart was in it more than mine at times and because of that, I have a house beyond my expectations. She was amazing and gained the trust of both seller and buyer.” — PATTY L.
“Deirdre was the only listing agent that we talked to and we felt connected with her even before we seriously considered making an offer on the house. We’ve had some bruising encounters with listing agents in our house hunt. Also, as we portrayed in our letter to the sellers, we think buying or selling a house is a very personal experience for a family. We can relate to the sellers feelings as they considered our offer. We much prefer this kind of human interaction to cold, money-driven, business-only transactions. Deirdre’s gracious and forthcoming approach contributed to making our buying experience very personal and positive. ” — ENRICA & CHRIS
“I really can’t say enough good things about Deirdre. We were really demanding clients with high expectations and she stuck with us for almost 9 months until we found our dream home.” — PETER M.
“I wanted to thank you so very much! We couldn’t have hoped for anything better! I was sweating this one our and I think you may have as well — and you did it! It was your skill at marketing that helped my father achieve such a great price for his house. You did such a great job with the rehab (notice I didn’t say fix-up). You were the best general contractor ever, and because of all your time and effort and your knowledge it sold far above our expectations. Thank you for caring so much about the welfare of my father.” — CATHY J.
“Deirdre came forth with a stream of solid, competent and reasonable experts (foundation, chimney, sewer line) to check all the aspects of the house we ended up buying, and gave us a clear idea of what we were looking at in terms of needed repairs and associated cost. She was able to talk with us as a person who remodels houses, which is what we need since we’re pretty inexperienced with that and expect to have to fix/remodel things in the new one.” — DARCY D
“Deirdre was kind and patient under duress. The sale of our home was a bit more difficult than we anticipated. She handled it well and we did not. If not for her, I don’t know what would have happened. We felt very comfortable asking her odd/uncomfortable questions, and she didn’t blink. We felt she was very honest and helpful with answers. She helped ease the stressors along the way, and she definitely handled our unease with grace.” — BRIAN V.
“Thank you for every single thing large and small you did to help Lynn sell his home. You were there for us from the very moment we said, “let’s do this.” You held our hands and jumped right along with us. We just always knew that you would be the right person to sell our home. Wishing you continual success and happiness.” — ANDI & LYNN
“It was nice to have her as a sounding board for what was and was not acceptable in a prospective house based on the work that would be required. Deirdre was a great communicator who advocated for us and was on the same page with us throughout the process. She was particularly helpful in helping us think through the fix/remodel parts of the new house.” — DARCY D.
“I wish to compliment Deirdre on her professionalism. Deirdre’s ideas of how to improve the appearance of the property paid off substantially in the final selling price. She spent many hours obtaining bids for needed improvements, as well as, organizing the work teams to accomplish the various tasks. Her efforts were and are greatly appreciated.” — PAUL J.
“Deirdre is an incredible professional who knows how to flawlessly combine her particular expertise with her clear understanding of people and their emotional connection to house and home. She guided me gently through the sale of the grand house I had lived in for over 30-years, and doggedly joined me in my 3-year pursuit of a new place to call home. I can say without reservation I could not have done it without her.” — HILARY B.
“Deirdre is extremely insightful and patient. She was so understanding and calm through the entire process. She was very responsive, coming to listings at the last minute’s notice, and putting together offers in a matter of an hour when we found a house that we liked. We wouldn’t have gotten the house that we wanted without Deirdre. She went the extra mile. When presenting our offer, she negotiated and “sold” us to the clients. Given how difficult today’s market is in Seattle and in our price range, I know that we would not have gotten the house without Deirdre.” — HEATHER H.
“We wanted to thank you for all of your hard work in our home sale and purchase. And also for helping us deal with the sewer and all of your advice and referrals. I’m pretty sure that you went way above and beyond what an ordinary agent would have done, and we want you to know we are so grateful for your thoughtfulness. We absolutely love the new house and we were laughing the other day about how we surprisingly don’t miss our old house at all. The space we have now and this neighborhood are so much more suited to our needs, and it feels so good to finally be settled.” — ASHLEY & TYRONE
“Excellent. Deirdre Doyle is an exceptional agent. She is honest, trustworthy and helped us for several years in finding the right house for us. She was always patient and truly wanted us to have the “right fit.” She gave good advice and was well organized.” — TIM H.
“Phenomenal! Deirdre went above and beyond to ensure a seamless transaction. She was attentive to every detail, each phone call/text, and each step of the way. It was as smooth as it could have been, given so many details of buying a house. Great job!” — AMY M.
“Deirdre is highly professional, works hard and is extremely familiar with the Seattle neighborhoods. We really enjoyed the experience of finding our new home. The market has been crazy and we had our share of disappointments in bidding wars, but Deirdre made the process fun.” — KELLY & DAVID
“Not sure what kind of magic you made happen to help us get the barn, but when I saw this couple on the card using the ol’ distract them and act casual” technique you and Jan came to mind, and without saying your experience and knowledge backing up your technique. Huge gratitude!” — LISA
“We can’t thank you enough for all of your time, energy, effort and excellent advice as we went through the process of making an offer on that sweet little home on Summer Hill Lane! We are still crushed that we didn’t get it, but we couldn’t have been in better hands as we navigated the process and made a run at it. You are brilliant in what you do and we so appreciate all you did for us in those intense few days. Enjoy this wine as a small reflection of our thanks. Here’s to the next one working out in our favor.” — BRITT, JONATHAN & ELIN
“You really know with Deirdre that she just loves finding the right house for you, not just selling you any house, which is an important distinction. Any agent can sell you a house, but Deirdre helps you find a home in the right location and in your price range.” — HEATHER H.
“Deirdre - you must know that you are partially responsible for moving this little family along by getting us a nest. We are very happy with our next and excited about sharing it.” — SHAWN L.
“Wanted to take a moment and thank you for allowing me to help out, meeting with me to provide your insight, and everything else you’ve done to support my start in this industry.” — PETER
“You have been wonderful to work with, and you sold the “most favorite” home I’ve ever had the opportunity to represent in my 20 year career. Thank You!” — LAURA
“Deirdre, went so above and beyond for us! We really enjoyed working with her. We really love our new home and location.” — NINA & PERCY
