Brian Carter recommends Kristin Schafer

Kristin Schafer is an amazing realtor. She not only guided us through our whole house sale but also made recommendations while the sale was pending. She was chosen from three different realtors and does not disappoint. If we buy another house in the area She will be my go to and should be everyone else's also.

Carolyn did an excellent job helping with the purchase of my home. I can honestly say she went over and above to represent me in the process.
Her communication skills and knowledge were key in getting the deal done!

Courtney Hansen recommends Sue Larsen


Sue is topnotch when it comes to real estate market in DuPont, Washington. She lives and works in the local community, and has an uncanny way of reading the local market even during uncertain times. We started working with Sue as the market peaked and finished as it declined in late summer 2022. Sue got us the most for our house and more importantly helped us sell quickly when many other similar houses languished on the market. We have bought and sold houses in many other markets and our experience with Sue was one of our best.

Trenton Hansen recommends Sue Larsen

Physician US Military

After the purchase of multiple homes in as many different states I can recommend Sue unreservedly. She was consistently on time and well prepared. She gave solid advice in a changing market that allowed us to maximize the sale price of our house. If I ever am in the market for another house in the DuPont area Sue would be the first person I contacted and I would recommend her to my closest friends.

Taylor Newman recommends Carolyn Demaree

Carolyn expertly managed my rental property for years and then helped facilitate its sale. She is absolutely excellent in every way. She communicates clearly and routinely, is always calm and professional, is intelligent in all aspects of real estate, and is an exceptionally great person. I highly recommend her to anyone who is wanting to rent out their property or buying/selling - she is the best at what she does!

Scott Pierce recommends Sue Larsen

Sue was, by far, the best realtor we have had. She helped us buy our 4th house and made it as stress less as possible. Her integrity to ensure we had our needs met over just getting into a house was great. I would recommend her to my closest family and friends, that is how amazing she was for us. Thank you Sue!!

Gene Burgess recommends Sue Larsen

Sue is amazing. She was recommended to us in purchasing our home and did not miss a beat. Over the years we kept in contact and always talked when we saw each other while in town. When we went to sell our home there was no thought of who we wanted to represent us. Sue is a great agent who will always be there for you.

Tawnya Horton recommends Patty Cierley

This is our second home buying / selling experience with Patty. We came back to her again for a reason. We trust her. Peace of mind in real estate transactions is huge. There are so many little things to think about when going through a home buying (or selling) experience that not having to second guess what you’re being told by your real estate advisor is critical.
The housing markets we were operating in both times were not easy ones, for different reasons. However, with Patty’s help, we didn’t feel stressed. She put at ease any time we started to feel like there was a situation we couldn’t handle, or was just a little more than we had asked for. We appreciated that, and I hope any future customers do too. We definitely recommend Patty to anyone wanting a realtor who will make the deal go through seamlessly to the end, coordinate all the trades to make it happen, and do it all without stress. She’ll do it with a smile too!

Emma Rivera recommends Patty Cierley

It was a pleasure to work with Patty. She was very responsive when it came time to sell our home. She is very knowledgeable about the local housing market, quickly provided us with all the details, and promptly got our house on the market. As a military family overseas, she made the process easy and stress-free; even with time differences and challenging schedules, she is always quick to respond to any questions and concerns. If you are looking for a realtor to take care of your property from start to finish, I highly recommend Patty with NextHome South Sound.

Thank you, Patty, for a seamless sale! You answered all questions quickly and made sure we understood every step. I highly recommend Patty for any purchase or property sale!

Isaac Reyes recommends Kristin Schafer

Military Officer

Kristin has been assisting our family for over 12 years now. She went above and beyond to find us a great home and made recommendations on our purchase in 2010. Since then, because of her knowledge base, we are now able to sell our home for a significant profit. She also facilitated a seamless selling of our home as we move on to a new chapter in life.

If you want to ensure you get a good home, at a good price, and without any confusion, then you want Kristen. She will be honest and make recommendations that are in your best interest, not hers. Her selfless service is a testament to her hard work and education as well as the company she works for. I wouldn’t have chosen any other agent and blessed we chosenKristen from the beginning. Seriously, you don’t want anyone else. You wanna make money/profit? Choose Kristen. You wanna get a good deal and a beautiful home to fit your family? Choose Kristen. I can’t imagine where we would be without her.

I highly recommend Dan to anyone looking for a highly skilled agent! I have worked with Dan on multiple transactions and it’s always a pleasure. Look forward to the next one.

Mark Sallander recommends Dan Benz


I was introduced to Dan through my mortgage broker of several years. He presented himself with an open and low pressure professionalism that I found reassuring. His knowledge of the marketplace and his marketing skills were impressive and spot on for me. Dan is aggressive from the beginning with strategies and frequent communication regarding processes and progress. This resulted in my better understanding of all aspects of selling a home. The resulting sale of my home far exceeded my expectations. I attribute this success to Dan's extensive knowledge of the market and his straight forward honesty I would highly recommend Dan to anyone for his service. He was a pleasure to work with and I would be proud to have him as a friend.

Robin C. recommends Dan Benz

Dear Others,
I highly recommend Dan Benz to you. In this case, I recommend him as a realtor for buyers, sellers and/or question-askers. If Dan doesn't know the answer he finds it and gets back to you quickly.

Dan wants to make the transaction that is right and best for his clients. To that end, he listens, asks questions and does loads of fact finding on their behalf.

Dan is considerate, respectful, honest and really patient for a guy who likes to get things over the finish line. He works well with the many people involved in a real estate transaction to the great benefit of all parties. Dan is calm and friendly while at the same time unhesitating to speak up and hold the line for his team.

I look forward to working with Dan again in the future and I hope you will, too.

Amy de Guia recommends Brittany Ulrich

Development Manager

It was a pleasure working with Brittany! I was impressed that from the start, she challenged us to get our home ready to go on the market quickly. She scheduled out everything for us and staged our home herself. We appreciated her great service and energy because she was absolutely perfect on the timing. We are very happy with the sale amount! Brittany is a great person and solid professional. Thank you!

Kyle Byram recommends Dan Benz

Law Enforcement

As a first time home seller, working with Dan on the sale was a wonderful experience. With his help, we were able to sell the home for more than I thought I would ever get.

Dan had solid advice to help me prepare the house to sell and he was always available when I had questions.

He listened to my concerns and always provided the right guidance and options, including recommending the right professionals to do the work I needed in the house to get the best price.

Communication is key, and Dan kept me informed on what was happening throughout the process. He provided a timetable of what was going to happen each step of the way.

Dan brings his vast knowledge of what works to sell a house, shows the utmost professionalism and remains easy to speak with. His level of customer satisfaction second to none!

I was extremely satisfied with his service and I would recommend Dan to anyone.

Daniel and Danielle Sager recommend Sue Larsen

Sue is the absolute best! Not only did she help us every step of the way in getting our house sold, she made sure that it was done in a way that took into consideration our family’s needs. Communication was excellent and she responded to us quickly and assuredly. She has a great reputation in the community and it shows in the quality of her team and the other real estate professionals she brings in to help get your house sold (I.e., the photographer). Finally, Sue is personable, relatable, and overall has a wonderful personality and demeanor that makes working with her a healthy and positive experience. With Sue’s help we’re ready for our next chapter as empty nesters! We highly recommend Sue for all of your real estate needs, whether it be buying, selling, or property management, as she was our property manager for our house almost 20 years ago!!!

Joe Vojir recommends Dan Benz

Dan was a great agent to work with through our home selling process. He was very professional and knowledgeable. He provided us with all the right information from the very start and we very rarely had to ask a question because he had already provided us with the information. Dan was awesome with his marketing and getting us to the right selling price for our house. Dan was on top of everything from the time our listing went live to when we closed. He went above and beyond for us as we had some very unique situations arise during our selling process even after we were under contract. Even though our process was a little crazy at times, and no fault of Dan’s, he made it a positive experience and held our hand through the process. I would most definitely recommend Dan for selling or buying your home!
