We recently listed and sold our home with Brad, and Team Maider Knowles. We did not even consider listing with another agent as Brad, Tom and Kim are NE Seattle’s go-to Real Estate Team. Brad was attentive, responsive and very straightforward. The team as a whole has deep roots in our community with unsurpassed knowledge of this local market – it’s history and trends. They have very reliable support resources as well, and were able to connect us with their “rolodex” of awesome service providers whether it was landscaping, painters, electricians, etc. All those things on the list to do to prepare your home for sale, as well as during the inspection phase of a potential purchase, and once you move in. Brad has been there every step along the journey. When you work with Team Maider-Knowles you get three experts backing your transaction(s).
Brad helped us with both buying and selling our home. The process was seamless and he continues to be a great resource to us as we evaluate making improvements to our home. I highly recommend Brad and his team to anyone looking for help with their real estate.
When I was selling my 1906 4-bedroom Craftsman, Brad Knowles knew the market, the right asking price, and the people to fix my house to look its very best. Excellent people skills and real estate knowledge. We received $100,000 over asking price and everyone was happy with the outcome. An absolute joy to work with. Than you Brad!
I can’t say enough great things about Brad! We have purchased two homes through him, both in peak markets where inventory was low & multiple competing offers the norm. He’s extremely knowledgeable & predicted the escalated purchase price within a few thousand. If you want an agent that can get you the house you want, he’s your guy!
Brad has helped me with two home purchases and one sale and has always been on top of everything. He’s incredibly professional and patient and has a great balance of keeping you informed, but also allowing you to go at your own pace.
We first hired Tom in 2002 when we were deciding between remodeling our existing home or moving. Tom was extremely helpful in the process and we ended up remodeling instead of moving. In 2007 when we did decide to move, We hired Maider & Knowles to list our house and they were instrumental in getting the deal done. They have expert knowledge of the North East Seattle real estate market and was spot on in the strategy to get our house sold quickly and positively. I would highly recommend Tom, Kim and Brad on the buy or sell side and would be shocked if there are any residential real estate professionals in NE Seattle that are better than Maider & Knowles.
Tom and his team worked with us to get us our dream house. Even though Tom was representing the sellers, he did a fantastic job helping us work through the process, espeically given the lack of local knowledge on the part of our own agent. Tom, Brad and Kim are straight shooters, great communicators, responsible and responsive. I will work with him and his team again anytime and would recommend them highly and without reservation to anyone selling or purchasing a home.
Tom is an exceptional real estate agent. He’s an honest and patient man who clearly, genuinely loves his job. Tom defines professionalism and quality for busy families demanding results. He’s a delight to work with; his integrity astounds (contact me for specifics). We’ve had the fortune to have Tom help us with 2 home sales/purchase in 1 year. He is ever-available, thorough, competent, and extremely knowledgeable. HE HAS NEVER WASTED A MOMENT OF MY TIME. In fact, he’s added exceptional value. He gets the job done. He’s a rare agent that is joyful, generous, wise, and kind. He entirely calmed us down through stressful transitions with knowledge and reason. I simply cannot say enough about Tom. He is an utter class act. He’s the rare real estate agent who remembers what buying a house is all about: arriving home…
We can’t say enough good things “nor can we can say anything negative” about Kim and Brad Knowles and Maider & Knowles team. We’ve known Kim for twelve years and Brad for two; Kim helped us sell and buy a new house in 2000, and recently both Kim and Brad have worked tirelessly to ensure a positive experience selling my Mother’s house. The invaluable advice, the “out of the box” ideas to overcome obstacles, and the shoulders to beat against and then cry on, have been nothing short of wonderful. I have recommended them to many people in need of real estate advice and help, and we will absolutely call them if and when we decide to move forward in another real estate transaction.
My wife and I hired Tom to look for our first house. We asked around to a number of people, and they all said the same thing, “If you’re looking for something in the Laurelhurst, Bryant or Windermere neighborhoods, Tom and his team are the best.” They definitely didn’t disappoint. Not only did they have a thorough understanding of what we were looking for and matched that to what was available on the market, they also provided insight on what was coming up for sale and allowed us to get the inside track on a number of properties. When we look to sell our current home, we’ll definitely be turning to Tom again with the utmost of confidence.
Dear Kim, I love my new house in Sand Point, and I am so thankful to you and your colleagues, Brad and Tom, for helping me get here. I feel so privileged to have been able to work with you Kim and your team. I enjoyed getting to know you during the hunt for a new home and the selling of our home (in a week with three offers)! I found you so genuine, well-intentioned, professional, and highly skilled in your field.
The three of you work so well as a team: I felt you were all committed to our best interests. I hope that I live out the rest of my life here. I could not ask for more. Gary and I are so glad to be here.
Tom did a great job tailoring what he did to meet our specific needs. He came up with a creative solution to help us find the house we were looking for, finding a house that wasn’t even listed on the exact street we were looking at. He and his team also did a great job assisting us with the sale process, helping us maximize the value we got for our house. He was quick to respond to questions we had at anytime, day or night! I wouldn’t hesitate to use Maider & Knowles again and would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.
