Lisa Bender Team With RE/MAX On The Lake

What a great experience has it been for us to work with Lisa!

It took us quite a long time to (finally!) find our dream home. We have seen dozens of homes with Lisa. On quite a few of them she provided an insight for us to prevent us from wasting our time seeing them - she knew exactly what we are looking for. It took very little time for Lisa to calibrate the search criteria and to be on lookout for a home that suits our taste!

We are located two counties away from Lisa... Yet the experience working with her has been seamless - she utilized video chat with us while visiting properties to show them to us. She recorded videos and sent our way when needed. She sent property information ahead of our visits with all the "pluses" and "minuses." She answered our calls and e-mails promptly.

We are so glad that after so many months we finally found our dream home with Lisa in our own county - Whatcom! Once we located the home we finally felt good about - she worked FAST and DILIGENT to make sure our bid was the highest and best in a pool of 12+ offers! She made sure to work efficiently with our lender and our loan got closed in 2 weeks! All Thanks go to Lisa for her professionalism and persistence!

On a personal note - she is HONEST and very KIND! The traits that are hard to come by these days! And... she has high INTEGRITY!

Thank You Lisa for all that patience and helping us to get us our dream home!

p.s. Soon to sell our existing home and we know that Lisa will deliver great service... again!!! We have full confidence in her! :)

I cannot recommend Lisa enough, she was just such a pleasure to work with. From getting my place ready to sell, to taking care of last minute details before closing, she was a true professional. I had to move out of the area before my sale went through, but staying in touch with her was easy and she always got back to me quickly. She knows the ins and outs of real estate and will work to get you the best deal possible.

Lisa was great. She made the process smooth and was always available to answer questions. She was candid about what needed to be done to improve our chances of finding a buyer and I appreciated that.

We recently purchased a home through Lisa. She was always very quick to respond to any question we have. She is knowledgeable and will often point out things of a house that we don't normally think about to help us decide what's best for us. She kept in touch with the sellers agent constantly to help us write a competitive offer. She has many local contacts that she refers to us and all of them are very helpful. We will recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home.

This whole experience was made extremely easy because of working with Lisa Bender. This was the only home we have ever owned and had never sold a property before. She answered all our questions in a timely manor and is very knowledgeable. If I was a teacher I would grade her an A+!!

It's moving day, into our first house, and we couldn't have done it without the amazing Lisa Bender. From the "curious if we could do this" step all the way up to getting the keys, Lisa was there for us to answer questions and support the process. She even had Bernstein Bears moving day book to help my little girl's anxiety about it all. We were amazed at how available she made herself to accommodate our timeline. I'd recommend Lisa to anyone in her service area seeking to buy a home. She's amazing!

Lisa is absolutely amazing. She’s everything you want in an agent - knowledgeable, responsive, patient, and pretty damn funny.

Five years ago she helped us buy our first home. She showed us a ton of houses and ultimately found us the perfect one - it had an acre of land in Edmonds with a creek running through it, how cool is that?

When it came time to sell, we of course wanted to work with Lisa again, but we were also wooed by an online brokerage’s low listing fees. So we met with their agent and... it was not a great experience. They were hurried, didn’t want to see all of the property, had no suggestions for improvements, and worst of all were insistent on listing it 50k below where we wanted it listed. For a unique house like ours, not having an agent that could see the selling points was a red flag. We chose Lisa. Funny thing is, we never told the other agent we were switching, they just never reached out to us again. Oh well.

Lisa suggested some sensible improvements and for the bigger jobs (like landscaping) referred us to contractors to get the work done. Everyone she hooked us up with was awesome and affordable. I think we saved any difference in listing fees in these referrals alone.

In the end, we had multiple offers above our asking price waiting for us on the offer review date. What more could you ask for?

Buying or selling a house, you’d be lucky to work with Lisa.

When we started thinking about who we wanted to sell our home for us, it was a short discussion. We had seen Lisa's reviews and after meeting with her in person knew we had the right person for the job. She understands the current market, knew exactly what to price our home at and within 4 days of listing we were under contract. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell there home. In todays crazy market you need someone like Lisa!!

Lisa saved us money on the original offer and again when the appraisal did not meet the lenders threshold and we needed to re-negotiate with the seller. Both times Lisa acted in our best interest and saved us significant money. She was always available and responded to our texts or phone calls if not immediately certainly within minutes.
We were very happy with her customer service as we felt that we were her first priority. It is rare these days to be treated so well. We would definitely do business with her again and would recommend that you do as well.
Sincerely
Brad and Therese

Being first time home buyers, my husband and I were looking for someone who would be more than just a realtor. We needed someone who would explain the whole process and answer all of our (millions of) questions. When I reached out to Lisa, she immediately started helping us that day! We ended up finding our house very quickly and had a very smooth process thanks to Lisa’s knowledge and experience. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great agent!

Lisa came highly recommended to us by my brother. We had definitely decided to make the move, but were concerned, and even stressed about the whole process, due to a very bad experience the last time we sold/purchased a home. Lisa was always there for us, reassuring and smoothing the process all the way through to closing. We would highly recommend her to anyone needing an agent who is understanding and there for you all the way to the close of the transaction.

We listed our house with Lisa on a Friday and we accepted a full price offer on Sunday. What's remarkable is that we were in direct competition with several brand new homes being built nearby that had similar features and price points. She pulled out all the stops to make it happen.

Here are the things (that I know of) that she did:
- Coached us on prepping our house to sell it.
- Arranged for our house to be professionally staged.
- Arranged for professional photography that included aerial drone shots.
- Placed placards throughout the house to highlight key features & amenities.
- Promoted advertising on Facebook.
- Created a virtual tour walk through of our house.
- Held an open house the first weekend and connected with our buyer!

Beyond being a rock solid agent, Lisa is trustworthy, enjoyable to work with and has a great sense of humor. Needless to say I highly recommend her, whether you are buying or selling.

Lisa Bender is a fantastic realtor, she is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. Lisa helped our family to purchase our new home is less than one month. I was amazed at how many houses she was able to fit into her schedule to go and see. She was flexible about where we were looking and knew the areas well. She was very knowledgeable about the ever changing market for housing and helped us understand all the leagalities of budding on a home. She met us with a smile every day, and was up front and honest with us about all the properties we saw. Most of all there was never a question I asked that felt silly! Lisa is fantastic!

Lisa is amazing to work with, she is so helpful and has our best interest in mind. This is our first time buying a home and we had no knowledge of whatsoever when we started. Lisa explained everything, answered all our questions. Both my husband and I work full time, she was so willing to accommodate with our busy schedule and showing us around even when it was already so late of the day. We were able to get our 4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom for less than $500K, which is almost impossible in the area with this crazy market, let alone our was a brand new construction home. She is definitely the BEST. Would highly recommend!!!!!

Lisa Bender is the best! She is professional, empathetic, and has a great sense of humor. Lisa always responded promptly to any requests or questions and never once lost her patience with my inexperience at this daunting process. When it came time to negotiate she was very strong in our favor. It was a great day when Lisa became my realtor.
