Meet Judy & Jim
It’s about experience.
I fell in love with the Puget Sound area the first time I saw it. The experience was breathtaking.
The mountains, the water, the skyline, it was so beautiful. I knew that if I could I wanted to live here.
When Jim and I got married we had the opportunity to choose where we would live, and we chose the Seattle area. We continue to love this area.
When it came time to buy our first home I remember what a stressful experience that was. We didn’t know anything except we wanted to live in that house. Inspections, negotiations, contracts were all a foreign language to us.
I have been in the real estate industry now for over 25 years. I have helped MANY people through the same experience. My goal has always been to make their experience as stress free as possible, and the outcome exceed their expectations. I know what makes a real estate transaction and home purchase or sale successful, and what doesn’t, I know what makes the experience for a buyer or seller a good one, or a bad one. I know what to look for in a home or a neighborhood, and what to avoid. What makes a strong offer that could get you a home in a multiple offer situation and what won’t. I know what will make a home more marketable and help to fetch the best possible price in a market and what is just wasting money. It’s about experience. I have it.
Jim joined me in the real estate industry a couple of years ago. He brings ove 20 years of sales and marketing experience to our group. (He can also tell you quite a bit about wine if you ask him)
Together we offer our clients a team with knowledge of markets, contracts, and sales.
We offer experience.
"Judy was the second real estate agent I interviewed and it was clear from the very beginning she knew the potential of the home I was selling. She knew who the builder was, who else in the area had a home built by the same good builder, what new buyers typically did to modify the home, and how to market it. Her comparisons were very carefully done and her sense of the market was amazing. She helped with practical things like locating good roofers as the house needed a roof and getting a great stager for the home. At every step of the way she demonstrated professionalism and attention to detail on my behalf. We ended up selling my home for way over the asking price and that was because she knew her stuff. I would VERY highly recommend Judy Gratton to help give you your real estate edge! She sure gave me an edge and I'm very thankful for her help."
"Judy Gratton made our dreams come true! She sold our home in Bothell quickly and then found us a new home in Mukilteo near the beach. The agent on the house we purchased was NOT professional, but Judy masterfully managed the hurdles and stresses and got our property closed on time. I wouldn't use anyone else for my real estate transactions ever again."
"Judy is really conscientious. She cares about people being happy with their real estate dealings. She works well with the whole network. Judy is intuitive and coupled with her experience is the best in the area. You can rely on Judy to ‘be there’ and she's very energetic. I will hire Judy again and refer her with confidence to be your realtor, too."
“Judy is organized, thorough, and personable. She’ll work hard for you to ensure a winning transaction, whether buying or selling a home. Judy has the highest integrity, is honest and extremely knowledgeable about the market. You won’t find a better realtor or person!”
"Judy and Jim were not only flexible and friendly, but they were "to the point" and patient with our growing needs. They invited us for family holiday functions, as well. They were in communication the entire process and willing to answer any questions. We sold and bought through Judy, and her expertise shines in everything she does,"
