What My Clients Are Saying About My Service
"Mari Hubbell was a Godsend. She stuck by me through thick and thin on buying my first home. From looking at house after house after house to making sure my final closing documents were prepared correctly and ready for my signature. She has the knowledge and experience it takes when it comes to the legalities of making an offer on a home and to buying one. But most importantly, she was honest and I truly felt she had my best interests at heart. What more could you ask for!"
"We absolutely LOVED Mari Hubbell! From start to finish she went above and beyond and was always available to help us. We encountered many problems with our loan company and are so thankful for her support in getting us through it. She is the best!!!"
Craig & Tiana Callaghan
"Mari Hubbell is an extraordinary real estate agent. I first started working with Mari in October 2009. I was referred to Mari by another realtor. Mari contacted me and we spoke for well over an hour. She asked me good questions, "Do you want to live in the city or the country? Do you want a condo or house? Do you want newer home or prefer something rustic?" I responded, "Yes". Somehow through my convoluted responses, Mari was able to discern my taste and what I would like. She has a talent for reading between the lines. The list of houses that she sent me to review all fit my ever-evolving tastes and standards.
Mari also helped me find an excellent mortgage broker that she worked with in the past. She offered me at least three referrals (might be four) that she had worked with before and I screened the candidates before selection. Mari was very patient as we went to see about 60 homes together and my parameters gradually narrowed. Mari never made me feel as though I was wasting her time. I felt it was as important to her that I find the perfect place as it was to me. As her website and email footer indicate, she really does treat the transaction as if it were her own.
When I finally selected the house I wanted to put an offer on 6 months later, Mari made the process so streamlined and efficient and, dare I say, easy. She removed the road blocks, spoke with the inspectors and contractors on my behalf (as I didn't know what kinds of questions to ask and I travel a lot on business), coordinated follow-up inspections, etc. Whenever I think about it, I?m taken aback by the fact that she has other clients that she must be providing the same level of service. How does she find the time? I really felt that I was Mari's only client throughout the process.
I think the world of Mari and now consider her a good friend and trust her completely and whole-heartily recommend her to anyone seeking to purchase the perfect home."
"Mari is an amazing real estate agent. She was incredibly patient with me. I worked with her for over three years, searching for the right house. I would change my mind and give her different criteria, and she always came through. She gave me great advice and counsel, trying to steer me in the right direction. The last house she showed me, I wasn't sure about. It didn't really fit the criteria I had given her. It turned out to be the perfect house for me.
Her diligence and commitment to making sure everything was right is greatly appreciated. She saw the sale all the way through to the end, even following up with the banks and lender until all the papers were signed.. She went the extra mile in making sure everything went smoothly. If I ever buy another house....I will make sure I call Mari. Thank you!!"

"Mari Hubbell is a hardworking, detail-oriented thorough agent. I was impressed with knowledge of the market, her availability and her being my advocate. She is a wonderful asset to your company and I will recommend her to any one buying a home. Thank you!"
"I wanted to write my professional endorsement for Mari Hubbell. I have been a lender in the Pacific Northwest going on 5 years now. I had never had the pleasure of working with Mari Hubbell prior to my recent closing of a purchase transaction, where Mari was the listing agent. We closed this transaction of a multi-family home with multiple borrower issues, on time and with all parties in good spirits thanks to the efforts Mari put forth. In an industry where having a personal touch, being available, and actually striving to create relationships is going away, Mari was there every step of the way, pushing to make sure her property was sold!
She very much earned my respect. It is not often I have my own buyer's agents as responsive as she was on the listing side!"
Brian Stone, Loan Officer
"We had worked with numerous real estate agents over the past year or so with little success in finding what we really wanted. We had a written list of criteria that we wanted in the purchase of a condominium. Until we met Mari, the majority of properties that other realtors showed us, for the most part, did not meet all of our criteria. They took us to properties that were totally inappropriate in meeting what we wanted. A big waste of their time and more importantly, our time.
When we met Mari and gave her our criteria, within a very short period of time she had numerous condos to show us. Actually, just after one day with her, she took us to a condo that we both fell in love with and have since purchased. I realize this type of a rapid success is fairly unusual, but Mari did it.
Further, Mari was always immediately responsive to any questions or concerns we had. She is experienced, knowledgeable, and reliable. And, throughout the loan process, etc., she always was excellent at following through on everything until the end. We highly recommed Mari and if we ever have any real estate needs in Vancouver in the future, she will be the one we contact."

"Mari worked tirelessly with me and my wife over many months, as we were very particular with what we wanted. We were new to the area and she helped to show us around. We must have visited at least 100 houses. I''m guessing that we entered at least 50 of those for a closer look. Mari never gave up on us even though it seemed we might never find something that suited all of our needs. When we finally did find our dream house, Mari did a great job in closing our deal which included some haggling over details.
On the day we took possession of our house, Mari showed just how far she would go to see that we had a good experience. On our final inspection we were very disappointed to see that the rugs had a few slight stains that had been covered by large area rugs when we had viewed the house previously. Since the previous owners had already paid to have the rugs professionally cleaned, we felt we were just going to have to live with it. The next day when we took possession, Mari was there to give us the keys. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that she had brought along a special stain-removal chemical. We were even more surprised as she went to work removing some of the stains while we were moving in our belongings. She spent at least 30 minutes scrubbing and showed us that the stains could be removed. She even left us the remaining product!
We wouldn't hesitate to ask Mari to find us another house if we ever needed to move again. Moving is never fun, but Mari made it a whole lot easier."

We met by accident 4 yrs ago and kept in touch. My girl and I were walking my dog and happened to check a house and she showed up to show a client. We talked and she helped us. Mari is a very dedicated woman. She was always on call, working around our schedule and answered our questions and was a great go-between for the sellers and us. She was marvelous!
"Mari did a great job it was my first time going through the home buying process and she made it very easy and able to understand what was going on. I will definitely use Mari again next time I go to buy a house."
"My mother and I wanted to relocate to Washington from Oregon. We started coming up and checking out the area and the homes on the market. It so happened while on the internet searching the listings, I happen to run across a home listed by Mari, that was the beginning of a very enjoyable experience. Mari was very patient with us, We had a basic ideal of what we wanted, but having trouble finding it. She would ask us important questions(food for thought). When we would inquire about a home on the market, she would ask the listing agent questions I would've never thought to ask. She was a joy to work with and highly recommend her. She would be the first one I would call, if I was looking to buy or sell. We can't say enough about her. Thanks Mari!"
Suzette & Trudy Gemmell
"Mari was extremely professional in our search for a home in Vancouver, WA. She knew the areas, comparable home values, and neighborhoods we were interested in. What sets her apart is that she considers her profession a career, and her outlook and follow through was proof to us! She also has a great network of agents, brokers and others who helped us along the way. With so many agents coming and going during the housing bubble, we wanted to work with somebody that actually had a passion for her profession - not just trying to make a quick buck during an inflationary period. Mari is a true professional.
We love our home, but if we ever decide to move, we will certainly ask for Mari''s help again. We''d recommend her to anyone looking for a thorough and skilled agent. Thanks again for everything; you made our dream of owning a home a reality!"
Ryan and Kim Greig
Mari was awesome! I never felt that I was bothering her with my millions of questions. She was always available and worked late into the night on all my changing forms. She is very knowledgable with what she does and I had full confidence that she was sorking for me personally. Thanks Mari -- I love my home!
"I started my home search reviewing several homes on my own. I got a referral to another agency, and met with them, but didn't sign an exclusive arrangement document on the preliminary meeting. I even talked with their preferred mortgage partner. During this search, I attended an open house that Mari Hubbell was holding for her client. I loved the townhome, hung around and had a nice chat with her about it, also discussing our backgrounds, how she got into real estate, etc. She knew I was in the preliminary stages, and there wasn't a high-pressure pitch, or aggressiveness to get me to move ahead. Mari kept in touch, and when I got closer to making decisions, I then decided to work with her. When I finally decided on the townhome that had been my favorite all through the process, she worked out a lot of details as we went back and forth with owners on timelines, concessions(even more than analytical me would have) For a typically stressful process, Mari worked closely with me, and everything seemed to fall in place in the closing of my townhome.
I guess I'd sum it up by saying that Mari's motto is "Committed to treating every transaction as if it were my own" - and I really felt she lived up to it!
Thanks again, Mari..."
"We think of you often! We must have you over soon. We are enjoying the home and My favorite part is coming into the house straight from the garage and not braving the storm from the townhouse parking lot to my front door! Whew! You're a very good listener and you take everything into heart that a home buyer desires in a home! You do not waste any time showing us homes that would not strike our interest! Every home that we took the time to see whether near or far was exactly what we were looking for! We just had to wait for the right deal and come to an agreement on where we would want to live! At the end of our long journey you have found us the home of our dreams.
Thank you I'm so glad we have met!"
"Mari, with you as the real estate agent our experience in purchasing a home was a very positive experience. You studied our needs and made helpful suggestions. Your advice was sound and good plus there was integrity in all the transactions. Also you were very considerate about our time. When we had questions you were responsive to our issues and provided an answer in a short period to time. After our initial meeting you followed up with us for several months to see what we were doing in considering a purchase of a home.
The complete experience was a smooth and pleasant one. We would recommend you to anyone who is considering a purchase of a home."
Joyanna and Lyle Carlton
"Mari was great. Saw as many as 9 houses in an afternoon. She did an excellent job knowing the need to find a house quickly, while keeping in mind my needs due to my disabilities. Extremely pleased with my house!!!"
