Ode to Rita Levin (Rita Levin) and our new home :)

"Ode to Rita Levin (Rita Levin) and our new home :)
Friends, I want to share info about a wonderful person - Rita Levin. However, I think many of you are already familiar with it.
Imagine people who, like, have conceived the idea of ​​buying a house. First they want a big house, then a small one. They collect money for expensive housing, then decide that they will not pull. Then they need 5 bedrooms, then 3 is enough. Then submit the site, then you can do without it.
Then they find a home and rejoice. "Rita," they say, "prepare the papers." In a day people become overwhelmed with fear and they go back on track. And so several times. Seven Fridays in a week, damn :)
And Rita does not give up - Rita is looking for. And now, later I do not know how much time and spent Ritin nerves (our do not count :) - WE HAVE A HOUSE. URRA !!! Without Rita would not happen :) I recommend it to everyone! " -Irina Rogozhkina

We worked with Rita Levin from January to May 2015.

"We worked with Rita Levin from January to May 2015. Half a year later I write a review, objective, not affected by the wow effect of buying a house." This was our first experience of buying a house here, so there's nothing to compare with, but I will try to pass my experience as 
well.Thus, the pluses: + Productivity.Working with Rita, you get two realtors (+ Anna) -
Very productive in terms of inspection of houses - sometimes we went for an inspection an hour later as the house was put up for sale. Rita quickly realized what we needed. As a result, we examined only those houses - which fell under the bulk of our criteria. Sometimes, and so Rita calls: "Here's the house, yes, I understand, a little further, but the house is interesting - worth a look." If we were interested - went to watch. Rita works brightly, many times it was "Just left the house, look at the description / forks." If you like, we meet there in an hour. " But at the same time when choosing whether to give or not - no pressure, gives time to think, if required - then go look at the house again. + No pressure, customer opinion is more important.
+ Patience. Patience Rita does not hold. So much to spend time with customers who have the desire to change several times in a week (we want it, tomorrow is already) and at the same time stay high - it's professionalism. 
+ Openness - that I really love in business relations so it's 
openness. Communication with the agents was open to us, there was no deaf phone or "gag". Before calling the agent, Rita called us first - she was advised. 
Any questions about the process of buying a house Rita answers honestly with understanding. If something can not answer, then he will tell someone who should be asked about this issue. For example: "And for this item, it is better to consult the lender" 
+ The speed of the transaction - (writing an auction - filing - bidding - a transaction). In
Rita it is so put on the conveyor (at least standard transactions), that for some this "haste" may seem a minus. For me, this is a plus. Short term of the transaction strengthens the weight of the scope. My advice is to discuss with the turnkey all conditions for entering the deal so that during the transaction there are no surprises for you and everything went smoothly so that you do not have to change conditions on the fly and even more so choose another creditor. 
Just here you can relate the hasty manner of Rita's work. Well, for me 
, it's a plus too. When looking for a home, especially at this time, you need to be nimble, as good houses fly away like pies. 
Minuses:
- one aspect that has not been illuminated until the end of the transaction is the payment of bills (electricity, gas, water, equipment leasing and so on) - who to pay, with whom to contact, what figures? But in our case it was not a problem. 
- "rush" as I mentioned above. This point is in doubt. On the subjective opinion of some it may seem a minus. Some of our friends started working with Rita, but were slightly embarrassed by this manner of work and decided to use the services of other realtors. But after several months of throwing from one realtor to another, the nerves were returned, back: "Rita, help us" As a result, the guys stayed with the house.

"Rita is a wonderful realtor, we absolutely got acquainted with her, bought a house that is very pleased, and now, after two years, we continue to communicate. And I always recommend Rita to all my acquaintances. "

Working with Rita Levin was a great experience.

"Working with Rita Levin was a great experience. She is a professional and she helped us to found our dream house. Last couple days I was just wandering in my new home and didn't believe that it is mine! Me and my husband started looking for a house with zero knowledge about houses in the US (We just saw a few houses of our friends). Rita showed us all varieties of houses in our area, pros and cons of different styles. She explained what could be changed in house with little money or what could increase house maintenance. Going though all varieties, we understood what works best for us. When we found exactly that we needed, Rita did everything really fast. So now we are enjoying our dream house with perfect quality-price ratio. Thank you, Rita!!!"-Alex and Valeriia

“Rita Levin is a great real estate agent. She patiently worked with us until we found the right house, which we are enjoying so much now. The process and the transaction could not have been smoother.”-Dima Zhiyanov
“Without Rita buying a home would be a very nervous stressful disaster.
Buying home with Rita turned into great potential for new great friendship; the nerve wracking experience with the bank loan into a journey through many new interesting things to learn; and the long process of waiting - into a pleasure to see Rita, whenever we needed her. I wish, Rita will come to our house warming party. Thank you for helping us to find a great house, which will be our Home!”-Kreina Clement

We worked with Rita on purchasing a new house, and I cannot think of a more knowledgeable, smart, and attentive real estate agent than Rita.

“We worked with Rita on purchasing a new house, and I cannot think of a more knowledgeable, smart, and attentive real estate agent than Rita. What sets Rita apart is her ability and willingness to listen to and understand her clients. We were changing our plans three hundred times, and Rita always took time to listen, understand, and suggest her plan of actions. What we also love about Rita is her openness – she is candid and speaks her mind, and her substantive knowledge makes her advice even more valuable. She also has a common-sense approach to business, and cuts through unnecessary fluff. For example, because she took time to listen and understand our needs, she never bombarded us with new listings. Instead, she hand-picked the properties she thought would meet our needs and explained why. This showed that she values time – both hers and her clients - and this quality was crucial for us because we both are very busy professionals with children. Finally, we appreciated that Rita never pressured us into anything. She is aggressive in her strategy, but we never felt being pushed into a hasty decision. As a result, we won a cut-throat bidding war in a highly desirable location, and landed the property we really wanted – all thanks to Rita. We will continue working with Rita in selling our existing house. She is truly the best.”-Lola Zakharova

Rita made the process of buying our first home as smooth as possible.

Everything was done in a very timely fashioned. Thank you to her diligence and pro activeness we were able to close quickly. She is very passionate about what she does and was a pleasure to work with.”-Anna and Christian

Amazing!

“Margarita Levin was recommended to me by a co-worker and provided me an initial property review, consultation and pricing for my condominium in early 2015. She ultimately listed and sold the property for me in October. I have sold multiple properties on my own and I had intended to “FSBO” this property as well. I communicated my intentions to Margarita up front to insure that there would be no false assumptions that I was interested in her service outside of a complementary review. I was pleasantly surprised and amazed by how thorough she was in her research, analysis and presentation. She provided numerous, extremely relevant comps, a comprehensive in-depth property analysis, area amenities / services, historical market analysis and what turned out to be very accurate area trends and performance forecast… this was the “free” stuff. My circumstances changed in the following 8 months and I was unable to dedicate the time required to sell the property. I contacted Margarita and requested a proposal. Her thoroughness was again noted as she reevaluated the property with the same high degree of competence and focus. We reached a listing agreement and a few days later I notified her that the property was ready to show. Within 2 days, professional photographs were taken, a very impressive MLS listing was online, signs posted, brochures distributed and an open house scheduled for the coming weekend. The traffic at the open house was amazing. Margarita engaged all prospective buyers with her effervescent enthusiasm. Due to the amount of interested buyers (not just looky-loos) she brought in one of her associates to ensure everybody got an informed showing. By 6:00 pm on the evening of the open house I had received multiple, full-price offers. Margarita provided expert analysis and advice on how to manage the offers and balance price, quality, qualification, contingencies and ability to close… down to lender response history and agent performance. She continued to shepherd the sale through closing and communicated with me as though I were her only client. Her experience in the industry is top notch and her professional demeanor, high-energy performance and tireless follow-through impressed me beyond my highest expectations. I’m not one to give “glowing” reviews… or reviews at all for that matter but when I see this level of professionalism and performance I think it’s worth sharing. To sum it all up, I contacted Margarita on August 24, 2015 to list the property; it was sold for high-end market price and closed by October 2nd… amazing!”-Chirstopher Schulke

Rita did an outstanding job helping our family to purchase a house in Redmond.

“Rita did an outstanding job helping our family to purchase a house in Redmond. She is an excellent professional and a great person to work with - I never imagined I would be able to reach such a level of trust with a real estate agent. She is very informal, responsive and - she totally proved it - 100% on the client side. She would never recommend a client to buy a house if she's not 100% positive it's a good deal. We managed to buy a house in this crazy market and when we ran into a situation where we needed more reserves to close Rita found a way of saving the deal. She also helped us to switch to another lender when it became obvious that the lender I've picked (Wells Fargo) won't be able to close on time and stayed on top of every single issue along the way Thank you, Rita!”-Andrey and Polina

I simply cannot recommend Rita Levin enough.

“I simply cannot recommend Rita Levin enough. In a time where people may think that due to Zillow and other similar web-sites, they can act as their own agent, Rita is proof positive that the role of the real estate agent is alive and well. She is the consummate professional. Immediately upon entering homes, you'll discover that Rita is analyzing the home and has a depth of knowledge that's very impressive, certainly much more than mine. Just as important as her knowledge of what makes a home a good deal, she also listens to you and pays attention to what appeals to you as a buyer. After a couple of home tours, she will never take you to a home that doesn't match at least 90% of your criteria for your new home. If you're buying or selling a home, you simply cannot do better than work with Rita Levin!!”-Gregg

Rita has been our agent for years and we can't imagine working with anyone else.

Rita has been our agent for years and we can't imagine working with anyone else. She helped us purchase 2 different rental investment properties and most recently, a new primary residence in Issaquah with acreage. Rita really knows her stuff and is a delight to work with. She is a wonderful human being on top of being a fantastic agent. She works hard for her clients and stays on top of all the details, and she's always demonstrated a great working relationship with sellers' agents to make everything go as smoothly as possible. Her guidance is invaluable throughout the entire process, from search to closing. The Seattle area real estate market is not for the faint of heart, and Rita will help you navigate it and find the right place for you.” - Sunny Diaz

Everything was awesome!

Thank you so much for helping us buy the house of our dreams!

"Thank you so much for helping us buy the house of our dreams, selling ours, and also helping us make the right decisions at the right times. We admire your professionalism and knowledge of the market. What a relief after our house is completely closed. Thank you so much again." - Tali G.

Rita Levin is a great real estate agent!

“Rita Levin is a great real estate agent. She patiently worked with us until we found the right house, which we are enjoying so much now. The process and transaction could not have been smoother.” - Dima Z.

In the end, the actual process of buying the house ended up being the easiest part of the whole move!

“We have recently relocated to Redmond from out of state and needed to find a house prior to the move. Rita understood our needs perfectly and worked with our very tight house-hunting schedule, taking the time to educate us about the market within our budget and guiding us towards a house that is a great fit for our family. Rita is very well-known and respected by her fellow realtors, which became important when she advocated on our behalf with the sellers. In addition to actually finding our house, Rita also assembled a team of a mortgage agent and a contractor who all worked smoothly together to make sure that our house was ready exactly when we needed it. In the end, the actual process of buying the house ended up being the easiest part of the whole move!” - Tim P. & Rimma N.
