"As a first-time homebuyer in a challenging market, I was a bit apprehensive about my ability to find a home that I loved, in my ideal neighborhood, and within my price range. Anie was a great coach and advocate throughout my search and the purchase process and – just as importantly – she was fun to work with. She has a great understanding of the local market, and I appreciated that she was always available to answer my questions or look at homes a second (or third) time so that I could feel confident in my decision to make an offer. Anie was able to find a condo in a building I loved even before it was listed on MLS. She worked with me through multiple rounds of negotiation, and I’m extremely happy with both the final sale price and the unit itself. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Anie again, and wholeheartedly recommend her!”

"Its hard to express in words how amazing Anie is! Stop looking now and call her. You want her to be your realtor, trust me. She worked really hard for my family and we were a very tough customer. As buyers our transaction was about as hard as it gets and Anie rocked it! Relocation, new to the area, contingent offers, bought a rental, sellers were tough, etc. She helped us through a tough relocation. She organized many showings for us both east and west of Lake Washington and helped us get to know each area well so we could make the right decision where to settle. We were trying to buy while selling a home out of state which restricted us to making contingent offers. In the Seattle market its unheard of the get a contingent offer accepted but somehow Anie did it. Where most realtors would tell us not to bother submitting a contingent offer, Anie exercised some serious possibility thinking and was willing to give it a shot. Ultimately, our second contingent offer accepted on an amazing home that is perfect for us. She even helped sell our home out of state by contacting colleagues and offices in CA where we were selling. Our buyers eventually came from one of those colleagues she reached out to. i could go on and on. Anie is amazing and she will work really hard for you."
“Anie was very positive, attentive, precise, and, on task as to all of our needs and follow through. I very much recommend having her as your agent. You will not be disappointed!”
“Anie was amazing to work with. Given that this was my first house purchase EVER, it was important to me that I have an agent who would truly partner and guide me through the process. Anie did that and more! She was there with me every step of the way, thoroughly explained the process and answered my questions and made the viewings and purchase process enjoyable. She continues to check in and see how I’m doing in the home, which I appreciate as well. Not sure who was more excited to finally receive the keys – me or her :-). She’s awesome and I’d recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a new home.”
“I never would have bought a home without Anie. I was so worried the whole process as it was my first place, and Anie made the entire thing virtually stress free. She was always available, always responsive and was an absolute pleasure to be around. I have sent everyone that I know that is buying a home right now to her, and she has extended the same level of professionalism and dedication to my friends and family that she gave to me. I can’t say enough about Anie! I don’t think I have ever met someone so good at their job”
“Working with Anie was a great experience. I have purchased properties in the past as investments and have always represented myself. I’m confident that without her professional help and close eye on the market I wouldn’t have been able to put the deal together.”

“My Wife and I had such an incredible experience with Anie. We both have purchased homes in the past and had less than ideal experiences. Anie listened to our wants in our new home and guided us with a gentle hand.
We started with looking at homes online and giving her feedback, once she had this we started going out on visits. Within two trips, we found our new home and the buying process started. She remained at our sides through the whole process, advocating for us with the seller and ensuring everything went smoothly.
This was by far the smoothest home-buy that I have experienced. Her energy, great attitude and knowledge makes her a great agent. You will never have to second guess choosing Anie as your agent!
Thank you Anie!!!"

“My Fiance and I had such an amazing experience with Anie. It was our first time buying a home and we were going in to it pretty blind. She held our hands the whole way and was there to answer all of our questions (even when we were emailing her on her vacation). It took us about 3 months to find what we were looking for but she never once slowed down and we ended up finding our perfect home.
I would highly recommend working with Anie. She has an amazing energy and a great attitude. She will definitely help you find what you are looking for.”
"There probably aren’t enough words to describe the genius of Anie Buckmelter, but here goes. Anie is the most creative, savvy, kind, quick, and determined realtor you could hope for. It takes here only minutes to know exactly what it is you need, even if you don’t know what it is you need. Besides being the brilliant Realtor that she is, she is a person of integrity, honesty, caring, and quick wit. She is 100 % responsive, always on time or early, and always meets you with a smile and a purpose. Anie will not let you down. She managed to get me a gorgeous condo with a spectacular view in Seattle at $30,000 under asking. And when the owners and their realtor were less than scrupulous and didn’t follow through on a piece of their agreement, Anie made it right. Thank you Anie B. again and again and again. I LOVE my new home."

"If you are looking for an honest, energetic, yet down to earth real estate agent then Anie is the right choice for you. After meeting with Anie for only an hour or so she was immediately able to set up a search for listings that were right up our alley. We lucked out and found the perfect place for us in just a few weeks. There was never pressure to buy but all the assurance we needed to make a quick decision. In the Seattle market things move incredibly quickly and Anie was on top of the ball whenever we needed to make a move on something. Five stars for an awesome agent and great person to work with."
“Since becoming our agent, it’s was immediately apparent that Anie cared a great deal about us and our families needs and went go to great lengths to promote us during the offer/bidding process, even physically presenting the offer and talking about us more.”
“Anie is easily one of the most attentive, ambitious and empathetic agents in Seattle right now. Her commitment to finding people the right home (not just a house) is balanced by her patience. Her skills manifest in every action, piece of advice and support. She networks like a pro, building collaborative relationships with other agents to make the closing process smooth as can be. Buying a home is a complicated process — and yet she manages to make it incredibly joyful. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her”
“Excellent, non-pushy advocate for you during the whole process. Very quick to respond to questions and flexible in her approach to meet your needs. She will take a lot of the stress of the process out by being such a great communicator. Thanks, Anie!”
“I absolutely loved working with Anie! She is extremely knowledgeable about the Seattle neighborhoods and finding the best property within your price range. I ended up buying a co-op, which is not a common purchase in Seattle but Anie did her homework to make sure I fully understood the requirements to purchasing this property and going through the closing/escrow process. During the negotiation, she was amazing and did everything in her power to get the price to exactly what I needed. She is in constant contact with you during the entire purchasing process which really helped in reducing my stress. I would highly recommend Anie!”

“As a 3rd time buyer, I thought that I knew everything about the process of buying a home. Annie took the time to explain everything, and she did so very clearly and with obvious insight that revealed to me how much knowledge she had. Her excellent people skills, expertise and persistence were key in our helping us win the home when there were multiple offers. She sailed us through tough spots in the negotiations! This was by far the smoothest home-buy that I have experienced. Her advice to us was always on target; thoughtful and wise. ” – Joe
“Anie was such a joy to work with. She knew exactly what we wanted; we even found our home the first day we looked! She was very attentive, and she always had our best interest in mind. I highly recommend her! ” -Hilary

“We had a wonderful experience working with Anie when purchasing our first home. If I could give her 6 + stars for her responsiveness I would! Anie consistently went above and beyond the call of duty and was always a text, email or phone call away when we needed to move fast in this crazy market. In addition to being attentive, responsive, and knowledgeable, Anie is also a joy to be with. She’s positive, upbeat, and always ready for a challenge. We really enjoyed working with Anie and you will too!”

"Anie was great from start to finish. We never felt pressured to buy or to make any decisions we weren't comfortable with. She was incredibly patient, flexible and understood exactly what we were looking for. I looked at places virtually for 6 months before I came into town to buy a place and move in -- and all the places she took me were exactly what I had been looking for, despite that I'm very picky. We ended up getting a home quickly, smoothly and for a great value (despite the insane Seattle market.) I have no hesitations in recommending Anie, as all the other reviews echo. You can truly sense a genuine person like Anie, who has your best interests and customer satisfaction in mind. Can't think of anyone easier or more reliable to work with-- she always gets back to you very promptly. Loved the home buying experience. Never thought I would say that in a place like Seattle."
"Truth be told, Anie was fantastic and went above and beyond. I have to admit, when we first started the home-buying process, it felt daunting. We had heard about the market and were already pessimistic about the process. To make things worse, we didn't really know what we wanted. Every weekend we were looking at homes but nothing felt right enough for us to commit and put in an offer. When we finally did put in an offer on a home (our first offer), believe it or not, the owner selected our offer despite receiving a far more handsome offer. What we didn't know immediately was that Anie went to bat for us. She knew us and understood our family; she became family. Who would have thought that in the volatile Seattle market, we got the first home we put an offer on. Even when things got rocky through escrow, she was our advocate. She even booked us an appointment for someone to come look at our furnace. It really does matter who your agent is; I can't say enough good things about Anie. We absolutely positively love our home and our shared experience."
“Anie has been absolutely brilliant in helping us find a family home in Bridle Trails. She was constantly helpful and friendly when we called, nothing seemed to be too much trouble. I would definitely recommend her. She is very professional and nothing was ever an issue, also helpful with anything that was needed to complete the sale. To prospective buyers who want to deal with someone who is respectful, trustworthy, knowledgeable and truly professional in all aspects of her work, I would say, “You can trust Anie Buckmelter to get the job done.”
“I’m a first-time home buyer and I could not be more satisfied with my experience working with Anie. She is highly knowledgeable, responsive and professional and really took all the anxiety out of a pressure-packed process and turned it into something fun. I was referred to Anie by a friend (another satisfied home buyer) and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy a house. Even better, Anie did not disappear once the sale closed and has continued to reach out and look after me through my first few weeks as a new home owner. She’s truly wonderful. Thanks Anie!”

“Anie you are wonderful, lets just start there. Friendly, detail oriented, and you truly made it feel like we were the only clients you were working with. The most serious conversation Alex and I have ever had was the buy our first home together. The most difficult decision we ever made was where and how much. Anie was perfect through the long 8 month process. It started with weekly check-ins providing us with homes in a variety of neighborhoods and price points giving us an virtual idea of where we might want to call home. She held our hands through the pre-approval process and once a hard number was pinned down we were able to look at homes with confidence. Once we had been outbid for 2 homes and felt defeat Anie picked us back up and encouraged us to keep looking. Third times a charm and really leaps and bounds above the homes original bid on. Tiny perfect craftsman home surrounded by lush landscaping on a quiet street. I would absolutely recommend Anie to anybody looking to buy or sell there home.”
