We met The Collective Group during a down payment assistance class that they taught. It was clear from the start that they could educate us about the home buying process and be sure to help us find and buy a great home. We couldn't be more happy with our great Central District home and we feel that they did  an outstanding job managing the details and making sure we were well-represented throughout the process. We would highly recommend them to anyone buying or selling in Seattle!" - Rhea

​​​​​​​"​​​​​​​The Collective Group are exceptional real estate agents! Our family had to relocate to Seattle from San Diego due to a job change and it came during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Moving to a new state and area we weren’t familiar with was already challenging, but even more so with the quarantine and  travel restrictions. They made the whole experience comfortable and went above and beyond to help us with the purchase and transition to our new home. They helped us make a competitive offer in a demanding market, did video walk-throughs for us when we couldn’t be there in person, and answered all our questions. They were super personable and very professional. We would recommend The Collective Group to any prospective buyers and sellers with the highest confidence!​​​​​​​" - Marissa
