What Our Clients
Are saying

“We got our house because of Maria and how she handled the transaction from start to finish. Buying in Seattle is super competitive and Maria knows how to handle it all. We had to submit multiple offers for the house, she was quick to turn those around, guided us the whole way and made sure we were comfortable with every step. This was our first home buying experience and it was painless all thanks to Maria! Maria was always one call or one text away. Maria kept us informed at every step and we never felt like a burden to her. I would recommend Maria to friends and family in a heartbeat Maria has a lot of experience in her industry, she is sharp, attentive and always goes the extra mile”

– Inna Rasor & Greater Seattle

“Anyone selling or buying a home could not be more fortunate than to be working with Dulce Mason! At every step, Dulce was there helping us make the right decision. She has a great ability to understand our perspective and weigh in on decisions at just the right time and with the right answer. Literally everything Dulce predicted came true except that we made an even bigger profit than we expected. We would trust Dulce with our lives! Her kind and caring personality is no act. She truly cares about our futures. She knew exactly how to maximize our sale and how to help us make difficult decisions, allowing us to take the next step in life with confidence.”

– Colin and Kharli, Renton

“I could not have asked for a better realtor than Dulce. From the very beginning she was so helpful, polite, knowledgeable and so passionate about her work. She worked so hard for us in getting top money for our house! Again, could not have been happier with my experience with Dulce”

– Tiffany Jay- Renton, Wa.

“We have used Sterling Johnston as our property managers for several years and they have always done an exceptional job for us. When it came time to sell this property, we did consider other brokers, but we decided to go with Sterling Johnston and Maria Quinteiro thinking their real estate team would give us the same quality service we had received from the property management team. That same level of service and professionalism was just as we expected, and we were very pleased with the process and results. Maria, and her assistant Amy, did a wonderful job. We would also like to commend Amy Marohl, Maria's assistant, for her hard work and dedication. Amy did a fabulous job in assisting us when we had a few questions and being available at any time. Maria and Amy are a very hard working team. I would also like to say what an excellent job Maria did in helping to prepare the property for sale and the staging she used when selling the condo. All of Maria's recommendations were just as professional as she is. I feel we received great service from her recommendations and would not hesitate to use any of them in the future. We were especially impressed with the carpet company (who did an excellent job on very short notice) and the staging that was used. We've sold other properties and this was the nicest staging we have ever had. All in all, Maria, Amy and the entire staff at Sterling Johnston are true professionals. You won't be disappointed in any way choosing them to represent you.”

– Anita and JD, Bellevue, WA

“During pandemic, Maria Quinteiro and SJA did exceed our expectations from tenant handover to the sale of home. Maria handled prior property state really well to ensure it’s brought back to an excellent condition including staging and timely listing. Throughout the listing and sale process, we were amazed by Maria’s professional experience in the field, handling unique scenarios in complex offers and navigating us through the process with so much ease and confidence. We visited the property once and Maria and team took care of the rest. Overall, I am highly impressed with Maria, SJA and the experience in sale of the house.”

– David Bintliff/Oak Harbor, WA

“Christi went above and beyond to get our house staged and ready to sell! She had the contacts and resources to help us get improvements done and staged on a very tight timeline! Despite have a number homes in various stages of the sales process, at no time did we feel like we were getting “short changed”. Staff was very thorough and provided timely communication throughout the process.”

– Doug Weller

“Maria is a really wonderful person to work with. She's patient, and helped me set realistic expectations w/o disregarding my wants. I'd work with her again in a second. Thank you Maria!!”

– Jax, Bothell

“Christi did a fantastic job helping us not only buy our new home, but also sell our old house. She took great care walking us through the process and making sure we understood how all the pieces fit together. She worked hard to make sure all of the details got handled within the closing timeline. Christi’s knowledge and experience helped us navigate through process and make sure all of our concerns were answered. Christi was more than just a “tour guide”. She was proactive and very detail oriented. I would certainly recommend Christi to anyone looking to buy or sell.”

– Doug Weller

“Christi is a close friend of ours and seeing how she conducts herself personally and professionally, there was no question who we would choose for an agent. Working with her was fantastic!! She made our experience as seamless as possible and made an overwhelming process easy to understand and absorb. Her attention to detail, continued commitment and patience with us newbies was greatly appreciated! Our experience with Christi and the folks at Sterling Johnston Real Estate was nothing less than top notch. Thank you!”

– Marco Lago, Seattle

“Christi Sheridan-Cisler planned the sales campaign and forecasted the price it ultimately sold for. She pointed me to qualified contractors who brought my tired condo up to current market expectations, and staged the result beautifully. She arranged a 3-D video of the interior, and professional photos of the whole property. She put these all on an easy-to-find website, and used emails and printed brochures to invite prospects to learn about it. She fully met her plan and my expectations, and was highly professional yet friendly throughout. She won't disappoint you -- I highly recommend her!”

– Howard of Bellevue WA

“Nancy Gervais is a top notch agent, her understanding of the market saved us big $$ on our purchase. She was always available, polite but offered her true assessment/recommendations not dancing around and got right to the point to make a long term decision that was in our best interests.”

– Shawn Anderson, Snoqualmie

“Nancy Gervais is all you could ever wish for in a real estate agent. First, she is incredibly communicative -- highly responsive at ALL times, thorough, and helpful. Secondly, Nancy is a total expert in buying and selling strategy. She knows the market, and she knows what sellers and buyers are looking for and executes a flawless strategy to help you complete your transaction. Nancy also has an unbelievable network of connections to help accelerate a sale in the most effective way. Lastly, Nancy is just a great person who is an absolute pleasure to know. I feel lucky to have met Nancy and have the opportunity to have her represent me in home purchases and sales. I will never look for another agent.”

– Nick Boston - Kirkland, WA

“My wife and I were searching for a real estate agent and although we did not know Jeremy Minor, he was willing to meet with us and really catered to our needs. He was (1) knowledgeable and informative (2) available, punctual and fast to respond, (3) understanding of our needs and desires, (4) and easy to communicate with. He was great to work with, made the process fun, and exceeded our expectations.”

– Warren and Amy

“Where to even begin... We would have never been able to purchase our new home without Dulce, she made our dream come true. The amount of effort she puts in, and her work ethic is admirable. She was available to us day and night, and always made us feel at ease. The work she put into our home purchase was impressive, as our purchase process had some obstacles. She truly is the best! We wouldn’t recommend anyone else.”

– Shelly and Kyle Ottosen, Snohomish

“We came up to Bellevue for week in August, to decide whether a move from San Francisco was right for us and to see what the housing market was like. Shanon was an amazing host, taking much of the week to show us around Bellvue, Mercer Island and Seattle. We decided to make the move after returning to San Francisco, and Shanon went above and beyond, helping us secure a short-term rental here while we continued to look for a house. When we did find the right house, Shanon was amazing with the negotations. We ended up having an identical bid as another potential buyer, but with Shanon's help, the sellers chose to accept our offer. We ran into some unexpected speed bumps in obtaining a mortgage, and again Shanon provided us with great guidance and advice. We're very happy in our new home, and are so grateful to Shanon for her help in getting us here.”

– Bellevue

“Rebecca was amazing and went above and beyond on multiple occasions for me no matter the situation. I'm very happy with her services and diligence. Rebecca was incredible when it came to explaining any questions regarding money or what was expected of me when it came to the process of the purchase. Rebecca is the most polite and respectful person/agent I think I could have ever asked for. She could not have gone any more above and beyond than she already had for everything about my home buying experience. I could not be more pleased and truly thankful I was able to work with someone so diligent, and hard working as she was to make this home I am now in, mine! I am very happy with my experience with Rebecca. Very happy with my experience with Sterling Johnson Real Estate and their agents. Very happy with my experience. She made a stressful situation as smooth as possible.”

Kjerstin has a great personality. We felt she was honest and made us feel very comfortable throughout the process. We would recommend Kjerstin to our others.”
