"Merrie is a very positive minded person with the patience to handle difficult situations. She was able to sell our property during a difficult selling period by providing us with the information a seller needs to adjust their sights. She recognizes the importance of both seller/agent and buyer/agent concluding that the final sale is a good deal for all. We believe she achieved that in our sale."

Her honesty in representing both parties in our transaction helped to smooth any issues as they arose, and the process was smooth in it’s completion. Merrie more than met our expectations and we could not have been more pleased with the successful outcome of our escrow closing. We wish her all the best…!"

"Thank you for your superb professionalism, detail-oriented work, efficiency and thoroughness. You have a great can-do attitude, and were a pleasure to work with. We felt we were in good hands with you. You stayed on top of everything throughout the long complicated process. Even though it is a very difficult market, you made sure we obtained the highest price possible. When it comes to buying or selling another home, you are the only agent we would call."  
Katherine and Steve W
"Merrie hit a home run for me. I had a very special request for her to find me a home in a development that I loved. There were only 15 condos there and she actually wrote every one of the homeowners letters in my honor to see if anyone would sell. She followed up with true determination and all of the sudden a seller showed up. She did everything perfectly and got the job done for me. I am so grateful for Merrie and her ability to get the job done well."

"We can’t thank you enough for all of your help in finding our new home. You never gave up on us. It took a long time and many, many trips for us to finally find our home. We are so happy here and just love our view and location. Your warmth and easy smile always made us feel so comfortable. We’re not just customers, we are friends. Thank you."  
Jack and Barbara T
"A Few months after Dad died I contacted Merrie to help get Mom’s house sold so we could move her to the Pacific Northwest to be closer to my sister, brother and myself. Mom is in her 80’s and had never dealt with a Realtor or selling a house in her life. Dad always taken care of almost everything, so Mom was a bit lost. From the beginning of getting the house listed to the end at closing, Merrie was extremely helpful, kind and very professional. She treated Mom like family and this meant a lot to us. Communication between Mom, Merrie and all of us was great and it was wonderful dealing with Merrie."  
Donna Yauger
"We thank you for selling our house efficiently and smoothly without any complications. No wonder you sold four houses in our neighborhood in one year. We especially thank you for doing many extra work for us. We appreciated very much. You are not only good realtors but also good people. It is our luck to meet you. Keep up your good work to help more home owners."

"Selling a home is probably one of the most stressful times in an individuals life and the Bessells made our home sales experience the best ever. Their knowledge of the selling market and our location made the sale of our home almost effortless. From the beginning both Peter and Merrie worked with us on establishing the right price, staging our home and producing a video that showcased the house perfectly. They suggested that we schedule our first open house 10 days after the house was listed on the MLS. Once the house hit the MLS listings, we were amazed at how quickly 5 offers came in just one week . A sale was finalized for over the listing price. Peter and Merrie quickly handled all the next steps from inspections to loan documents to insure that everything would go smoothly for us and the new buyers. We can’t thank the Bessells enough for the personal way they handled our sale and closing. They are the best and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking to purchase or sell their property."  
Jack and Sue Hinkle
"What an extraordinary couple! Thank you to Merrie and Peter Bessell who sold our previous home and helped with the purchase of this new home. My husband and I were extremely happy with their professionalism in the selling of our home. They are very good at what they do….from the suggestions to taking care of the items that needed to be attended to. We appreciated their prompt replies to our questions and/or concerns. Just imagine, two people whom you can contact, instead of one! We loved having Peter, who is a general contractor, take care of a lot of things around the house that needed to be attended to. We would not hesitate to recommend this couple as your Realtors! You would be so glad you did! We not only found a great Realtor Team, we made new friends whom we will keep in our hearts for a long time!"

She was very patient and led us through each step. I appreciate her diligence and time she spent explaining the process to us. She was always pleasant and upbeat. I would recommend her to others interested in selling their home."
