As a licensed real estate appraiser I didn’t think my fiance and I needed to use a real estate agent because we thought we were savvy enough of investors to know what we were doing, so initially we decided to use a well known brokerage company to purchase our home to save $$$ on commissions as their commission rate is 2.5%, not the standard 3%. However, after realizing we weren’t getting the attention and responsiveness that we wanted, we decided to use a full service agent. That agent was Devon. From the moment we met Devon he was extremely responsive and showed us homes the instant we let him know we were interested. The home we ended up buying was a home Devon found for us, and he was able to negotiate a price we were happy with and get it under contract within approximately 24 hours of it being listed. This, in an extremely competitive market where multiple offers were the norm. If it wasn’t for Devon’s responsiveness and negotiation skills we likely wouldn’t have our home today! We would highly recommend using him!

As many people know, choosing to put your home on the market can be a stressful decision. We were a bit tentative initially until we got Devon on board as our Realtor. From the beginning, we felt assured that he had our best interest in mind. Devon is a very hands-on agent who makes sure every detail is met and that we understood what was happening and at stake throughout our transactions. His confidence, outgoing personality and open communication was invaluable in the selling of our home. We gave Devon our house for the weekend and went on a mini vacation as he held it open for a Broker’s open the Thursday that it went on the market and then both Saturday and Sunday for “opening weekend”. We came home on Monday evening to three offers, two with escalation clauses. Devon had our home sold in 4 days!! His marketing plan using video, professional brochures/photos and even a dedicated website was instrumental in getting our home sold fast! Now it was then time to find our NEW home. Devon was very diligent and patient. He made time in his schedule to accommodate every showing until we found the new home that was perfect for us. We had a very tight timeline and began to get concerned that it was not going to come together as we were on a very tight timeline. Devon made sure that all parties involved (escrow, buyer agent for the home we were selling, listing agent for the home we were buying, loan officers, etc) stayed on task and in the end it all worked out according to the contracts, just as Devon assured us it would. We immediately referred two friends looking to sell their homes to Devon and will continue to refer friends and family to him in the future.

I typically do not write reviews regarding service experiences but felt compelled to speak to the help and guidance we received from Devon DeHaas.

Buying a home is one of the most important decisions we make. Having an expert to guide you through the process is essential. Devon educated us on the pros and cons of the various choices we had before us. Through his education, we felt confident when it came time to put an offer in on a home that met the criteria we gave to Devon. He listened to our needs and delivered. He communicated what we needed to hear and not just what he thought we wanted to hear. He is a straight shooter and will give you feedback based on his vast experience. We appreciated his honesty and always knew that he had our best interest in mind. He is very creative and thinks outside of the box.

Devon stayed on top of the transaction process from beginning to end and kept us updated. We were never in the dark about what needed to happen next. He is thorough in ensuring that all paperwork is complete and timely.

Devon invests himself 100% to satisfy his clients and makes it fun along the journey. Save yourself the time in looking for a good agent and instead choose an outstanding one.

I had the pleasure of working with Devon on my first home purchase. As a first-time buyer, the whole experience can be quite stressful and intimidating, especially going into it with very limited knowledge of the home-buying process. Devon worked diligently with me, morning and night, taking extra steps to make sure I understood all of the details of the transaction–taking the time to educate me and explain what I was agreeing to (or not). I appreciated that he really listened and understood my need. He showed me many homes that met my requirements and that were in my price range before he let me decide on the home I purchased. Through the process I realized how important it was for me to consider all of the options I had (condo vs. townhouse vs. single family home, fixer vs. move-in ready, etc.). He is much more than a sales professional. I felt that he was my advocate and always had my best interest in mind, regardless of what was “in it for him”. He possesses the industry knowledge and really knows the Seattle market. He was always professional and honest, and never lost patience with me. Devon’s extensive knowledge of “DIY” was invaluable when looking at homes – he was able to explain what work was done well, what work was done poorly, what still needed to be done, approximate cost, and prioritizing home improvements (even accompanying me to the local Home Depot a couple of times to look at options and explain things!). He has the ability to see past what’s there by providing the vision of what it could be.

I recently purchased a lovely new Condo in the West Seattle area and Devon DeHaas was a superb agent working on my behalf. I’ve been divorced for some time and finally decided to invest again on my own. I had many questions as this was my first Condo purchase.

Devon made himself available to me at any time to answer questions and work with all parties involved to make this a very smooth purchase. He even shortened a summer holiday and drove through parking-lot traffic to meet my schedule and show me the Condo I now happily call my home.

I can not say enough about Devon. I was new to the area and a first time home buyer. It was my first weekend in Seattle and Devon was holding an open house. I was actually interested in the house next door and Devon took the time to get me access. A few days later i decided to make an offer. Devon walked me through the steps. He had a great team in place. His recommendations for the home inspector was fantastic as I work in the construction field I was impressed. His recommendation for a mortgage broker was again great they made the process seamless. He took the time to address my concerns while he was an vacation. Thanks to that. With his help we were able to close on the home in a little over 30 days. I really appreciate Devon’s hard work in helping me purchase my first home.

I worked with Devon to buy my first home recently and along every step of the way, Devon exceeded my expectations and was an excellent adviser and advocate.

Devon took the time to understand my specific wants and needs and guided me through a very thorough search using his comprehensive knowledge of the neighborhoods and properties to choose from. This can be a challenging process, but Devon made it approachable and fun!

He was flexible with meet up times and made sure we got in right away to see top prospects. When it came to make offers, everything went seamlessly. Contracts were written up quickly and accurately and Devon negotiated with real talent, representing me and my needs to the greatest advantage each step of the way.

All said, I am so happy with my new home! With Devon as my agent I was able to find the right place, negotiate the right price, and close the deal with confidence. I will definitely be calling him right away when I’m ready to make a move in the future.
