“Where do I begin? We went through two real estate agents before we met Nicole. I'm glad we did because as first-time home buyer, Ms. Aleshchenko made the process smooth as ice! Her professionalism and responsiveness is unsurpassable. Sterling Johnson should be thankful for having Nicole Aleshchenko as a representative for the company. I would highly recommend Nicole to anyone who is interested in buying a home. Ms. Aleshchenko, Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication in helping my family find our forever home.”
“Great work, Nicole! Selling and then buying another house was a long process and your communication, speed and professionalism during this whole time are sincerely appreciated. Thanks!”

“She is very good and handles all aspects of the transaction very well.”
“We worked with Dulce in 2018 to purchase a home and got to know her through the buying process which included numerous trips to view prospective homes. By the time we finished the purchase of our house we considered her a part of our family and have stayed in contact with her over the years. She was the natural choice when we first considered selling our rental property in fall of 2020. From the first time we met to tour our rental property you could tell Dulce had our best interest at heart, at one point even encouraging us to keep the property (what kind of agent does that???). Once we made the decision to sell she worked closely with us via calls and multiple property visits to ensure we made critical improvements that would maximize our investment when listing the house. She even helped to secure several hard to find contractors and acted as a liaison coordinating the work and ensuring things were complete to our satisfaction. Dulce excels as a selling agent and her network, experience, and attention to detail were critical in selling our house quickly and at a price we hadn't imagined. She understand both the art and science of pricing a property, advising us to push our listing a week when a competing house went live down the block on the day we planned to list. Dulce's knowledge of the market and her advice to prepare and stage the house allowed us to select from multiple offers over asking price just three days after we listed the property.”
“When we first spoke with Dulce she was warm, friendly, and eager to get to know us as individuals. She shared her years of experience, specific expertise, and how she would be a good fit given what we were looking for. Dulce's ability to provide data and then translate it to us was what convinced us that this was the perfect fit. From beginning to end, Dulce provided us with fast and easy to comprehend information that made us feel confident in every decision. She fought for us during closing and made sure that we never left anything on the table. We've been in our house for a week now and she is still checking in on us to make sure everything is perfect. Dulce is so easy and so much fun to work with. As first time homebuyers this process could have been stressful and overwhelming, but she made sure we never missed an opportunity and that we got to enjoy the process along the way. We will recommend Dulce to anyone looking to buy a home. She will always be our first call.”
“Rebecca was very patient and listened to all our feedback and requests. She was very informative. Rebecca got on every listing we were interested in and quickly arranged everything we needed to possibly make an offer. She is very knowledgeable of the current market and helped us write a winning offer when we found the one.”
“Maria has always been very helpful and has honored our wishes regarding what we are looking for in a house. She offers expert advice with relevant information that enables us to make wise decisions regarding purchasing a home. Maria is always on the ball and responds to calls and questions almost immediately. She has the biggest heart of anyone I know and I would never use anyone else for a real estate transaction.”
“Dulce was great from the get go on our virtual consultation back in November when we found out we would be moving to Washington. We began searching and working together all the while living in Virginia and she made things works as smoothly as possible for us. She did everything she could in ensuring us on house hunting procedures, helping with virtual walk throughs, and she was open about everything and we had full trust in her. I would definitely reccomend Dulce Mason to anyone looking for a home. The countless hours she spent helping us was amazing. She would send videos and pictures and thoroughly explain areas of the home. She would not give us wrong info and kept everything open and honest with us to prevent any future mishaps down the road. Dulce is great and I would totally use her as an agent again if we were to sell or look for another home in the future.”
“Maria Quinteiro has been a family friend for many years and has helped us buy and sell our previous homes. Maria really knows what we want and how to get it. She knows the market, how it works, and what needs to get done to get your house. She is the best! Maria knows real estate and is very successful in her dealings. We love Maria! Everything went very smoothly all the way through the transaction. That should give you a clear understanding of how we feel about Maria! She is absolutely the BEST! Don't waste your time looking for a real estate agent other than Maria!”
“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”
“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.”
“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”
“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.”
“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.”
“Christi was great, as I knew she would be! She was always available and quick to answer questions or concerns. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Thank you Christi!!”
“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.”
“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!!”
