October Home Sales & Closings

November 15th, 2012 by Claire

Congratulations to all of our clients who sold or bought a home last month using WaLaw Realty, totaling over $63,000 in rebates! Typically, the market tends to slow down in the fall, when the rain settles in and the kids get back to school – but 2012 is proving to be an unpredictable year. And once again we are busier than ever, and showing no signs of slowing down.

Check out our closings and rebates below, and for more information on the buyers side of the home purchase process, we just posted a great article (and info graphic!) here.

Seattle Home Buyer’s and Seller’s Savings – It Still Feels Like Summer Edition!

October 9th, 2012 by Claire

Last month we posted all about our buyers and sellers savings – summer edition. Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like September was summer edition part II!  Our clients saved a grand total of over $90,000 in September, that’s a lesson in back to school savings. Thinking of buying soon? Craig outlines the need for buyer representation in his latest blog post, “What is a buyers agent? Does a buyer need a buyer’s agent?” or this one on how our real estate agent commission rebate works.

For even more reasons, check out our closings and rebates below! (more…)

What Is a Buyer’s Agent? Does a Home Buyer Need a Buyer’s Agent in Washington State?

WaLaw Realty Combines the Services of a Real Estate Agent with a Lawyer’s Expertise and Duty to the Client

When getting ready to buy a home, people frequently wonder whether they need a buyer’s agent.  If they found the house themselves – which is common these days – then what value do they get from a real estate agent?  The truth is you don’t need an agent to find your next home.  However, only a naive buyer would try to navigate the home-buying process all the way through closing without the assistance of a professional.  The goal is to find a qualified professional who can provide the right assistance, for the right price.

And thank goodness, because I’ve already given up on the gym.

We have had a great start to the year here at WaLaw Realty, with three new closings already this month. Check out what we’ve been busy working on….


  Our buyer clients purchased this stately Victorian home overlooking Fauntleroy Cove and saved $6834, that’s a lesson in the era of elegance and economics!

 And look at this beautifully remodeled Newport Hills home that sent $7399 back to our buyers.

Holy rebate Batman! WaLaw has now rebated $1 million

December 29th, 2011 by Marc Holmes

We’re very excited to announce that with our most recent closing we have now rebated over $1 million dollars to our buyers.  And that’s not counting the thousands of dollars in commissions we’ve saved our sellers.

Since we opened our doors in 2009 our buyers have received an average rebate of $13,514.  That’s the average amount of cash they received at closing, and that’s after our fees are paid in full.  We’ve had two clients receive over $50,000 and, in an off market deal, one client got over $60,000 off his sales price in lieu of the commission.  That’s some serious jack.

What’s even more satisfying to us is the incredible feedback we get from our clients when they’re deals close.  The accolades they express about our service is priceless and the referrals they send our way is the cherry on top.

Thank you to all of our wonderful clients who have made this possible.
