I am so happy that I had the opportunity to buy my home with Lisa as my agent. Being a first-time home buyer, I did not have any previous knowledge of the process. She provided me with an abundance of resources, and made sure I was fully comfortable with all of the decisions I made.
Early in the search, she found an amazing townhouse that I instantly gravitated towards. We decided to make an offer, and won, despite being up against multiple strong buyers. We didn’t just get lucky – Lisa’s negotiation, organization, and knowledge are what made that deal. She maintains a very high standard of professionalism, and it is clear that she cares about each of her clients. She is highly skilled in what she does, and I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat!

Buyer and Seller
If you are looking to buy or sell a house Lisa Bibb-Welch is the person you want to be your Broker! I first met Lisa in 2003 when I was looking to buy a condo. Lisa found me the perfect home in Wallingford and was always looking out for my best interests. The condo association for the building I was buying in was in the process of suing the builder because the building was leaking. Fortunately, the unit I bought did not leak, but Lisa had a hold back agreement written into the contact in the event that an assessment would be made. As a first-time buyer I was thankful for her knowledge and expertise in the buying process and for providing protection for me against a potential HOA assessment.
I had the pleasure of working with Lisa again in 2007 when I decided to sell my condo and buy a townhouse in Ballard. Lisa expertly handled negotiating the contingent offer for buying the townhouse and quickly sold my condo.
In 2019 I decided to sell my townhouse to move out of state and of course called on Lisa to help me. I thought I would sell the townhouse and then move but ended up moving out after the townhouse had been listed for 3 weeks. I threw this curveball at Lisa and she immediately had a plan in place for bringing in staging and having new photos of the townhouse taken.
The day I moved out the movers damaged the entry way wall and when I notified Lisa she again immediately put a plan in place to get the damage fixed. Knowing that I had someone to rely on when I was moving out of state was a huge relief. Lisa went above and beyond in taking care of my townhouse – she would water the yard, check in on the place and send me pictures. She provided detailed summaries of how the open houses went and was always quick to respond to me. Prior to the townhouse closing she provided me with final meter reading numbers and ensured my townhouse was clean for the new owner. It is because of her I was able to close early on selling my townhouse.
Lisa is the person you want in your corner when buying or selling a house – she has an incredible amount of knowledge regarding the Seattle real estate market, is a fantastic negotiator and genuinely cares about her clients. I would recommend her without hesitation; Lisa has definitely set the bar high in my expectations of what a Broker should be like to work with.

Some friends referred Lisa Bibb-Welch to us. She is so great! She worked really hard to find the right price for our home and sold it for more than asking.
She is a wonderful person and has a very nice dog as well. We were nervous at first but she walked us through every step and we are so lucky she helped us. She made selling our home a very positive experience.

When asked to assist with the sale of a difficult older residence I was introduced to Lisa through my friend selling the home. At the first meeting she assessed and prioritized the necessary repairs to maximize value and then over the next few weeks proceeded to use her contacts and team to implement the refurbishment. This was not an easy task of simple cosmetics but one involving many sub-trades who she managed well. When it came time to sell, her comps for the home were 10% higher than those of my trusted consultants of 40 years and to my surprise she sold the home for even more than list price. In short Lisa Bibb-Welch is well informed, very personable, presents well and a solid professional. You’ll not be disappointed.

We’ve had the pleasure of working with Lisa three times now; selling our parent’s home, our home, and the purchase of a home. She’s a keeper! Lisa goes above and beyond to get the best price and the best buyer when selling. She leaves no stone unturned in thoroughness when is comes to purchasing. We would not hesitate to hire Lisa again.

Lisa is nothing short of amazing! She goes well beyond the duties of a realtor. There’s no way I could’ve gotten my house ready for selling without her. She has years of experience and has great ideas along with extensive lists of professionals of all sorts to do everything you need. And they usually give her clients priority.
Her marketing strategies were right on target (with lots of research) and very effective as she sold my house quickly and for the best price .
All of the reviews here speak to her amazing abilities and devotion to her profession and clients. You won’t ever have a better realtor, whether you are selling your house or looking for a home to buy–Lisa Bibb is the realtor you want on your team for sure!

Lisa is an absolutely amazing person…. VERY high energy and focused on the task at hand.
My wife and I presented Lisa with quite a task… we needed to get our house on the market within 10 days of returning from a “vacation” that we took to scout out a new area to live next summer. Turns out we found our dream house while we were at and acted on it.
Lisa took notes and prepared for our return. Everything we needed to get done was on a list waiting for us upon arrival. She made several recommendations based on her vast knowledge and instincts, we trusted her completely and she did not steer us wrong. She utilized her extensive contacts to help us chip away at our punch list to get the house on the market with the best chance to command a top return on our investment. We got everything done and my family departed on their cross country journey while I remained here to make sure everything went as it was supposed to on the sale of the house and to complete my tour of duty here in Seattle before retirement.
Lisa was engaged in every step of the way, not in an invasive way… but in a way that made us feel very comfortable with the decisions we were making. Ultimately the house sold for WELL over asking price, largely due to the fact that we followed what Lisa recommended. She knows her stuff, obviously LOVES what she does and cared very much that our experience was as free from anxiety as possible.
I can’t say enough about what a truly stellar friend/agent Lisa is. The entire process was painless, even with such a compressed timeline. Do not hesitate to select Lisa as your listing agent, she is all that and a bag of chips!

Lisa was beyond wonderful as our buying agent. We met with her informally for 6 months and she provided us with a lot of material and insight on the current market. Once we were ready to place offers, Lisa spent hours on end doing research on every place we expressed interested in. We had our home’s offer accepted after only a month of house hunting- not bad for the competitive market we are in!
Lisa is professional yet personable and is 110% dedicated to her clients. I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone looking to purchase their dream home!

Lisa has been a partner in a very important stage of my life, she helped me in two different operations.
If you have been in the process of selling/buying a house you know how stressful it can get and how many details need to be managed. I started by selling my house in Seattle, Lisa took care of every detail, having a clear and direct communication with me, what needed to be done, the reality of market and how to get the best of it. She knows her business and her best is when you’re confident on her. My house looked gorgeous before going to market and sold within one week over asking price, all the process was smooth and having constant communication. She brought value to my house and made me a profit on the sale.
Then she also helped me to purchase my new home on the east side. The buyers’ market is hard, but she always was professional, alert, efficient and in touch of what we wanted and desired, the educational process is important and she helped us to understand every aspect of it, fast, expedited answers, knowledge of her business and consistency helping us to get our dream home in a tough market.
I highly recommend Lisa, she really is your partner in crime throughout the process and beyond, highly knowledgeable, Professional, and attentive. If you’re going to venture into the selling and/or buying process, you must contact Lisa, I’m happy to give any references.
Lisa, thank you very much for your support!

I am writing to express my great satisfaction with my experience working with Lisa Bibb as our buyer’s agent. My wife and I went through a several-month search with Lisa, looking for just the right property for downsizing and eventual retirement in a highly competitive seller’s market. Lisa was on top of it at all times. She knows her business down to the details, in terms of listings available, things to look at carefully in a property, making a sufficiently aggressive offer and closing the deal. She is honest, thorough, and client centered. I do not believe we would have acquired our beautiful new home without Lisa’s diligent consistent, quality work. We will be listing our current home with Lisa when we put it on the market. I would recommend her without reservation to anyone looking for a quality agent to work with.

My siblings and I (5 of us), just sold our parents’ former home in Lake Forest Park, and had the great good fortune to work with Lisa Bibb-Welch in the process. From the outset, and through our entire association, Lisa could not have been more positive, more knowledgeable, or more professional. She had wonderful suggestions and was very tactful in bringing them forward and very respectful of each of us in discussion. Time and again Lisa exceeded our expectations of an agent. Whenever any of us had questions or concerns, Lisa was quick to respond and excellent at clarifying issues. My husband and I have bought and sold a number of homes, Lisa is the best agent we worked with and I hope to have the opportunity to refer her and to work with her again. She is a great asset to your office.

My name is Bob Sage; I do a lot of personal Real Estate transactions. Several years ago I met Lisa Bibb-Welch, Associate Broker, with Windermere Real Estate. My Real Estate work has become a lot easier since Lisa started working with me. Her previous affiliation was with Windermere as Managing Broker of one of their busy offices offering a full staff of 65 agents.
I’ve found Lisa to be trustworthy, honest, responsible and very knowledgeable in her field. She has made a big difference in releasing some of my office time.
If you would like to discuss Lisa’s professional handing of some specific residential and commercial properties. I will be glad to go into more detail if you like. Please call me at 206-347-4586.
She is TERRIFFIC!!!!

Thank you so much for being such a wonderful real estate agent for us. You were right on in evaluating what our house would sell for and in determining how best to market it. I really appreciate all of the extra efforts you made in helping me handle the transition from the tenants to the staging and the care and maintenance of the house you oversaw while the house was on the market and I was out of town. You are the best.

We wanted to take a moment to thank you for representing us in the purchase of our first home. We appreciate the time you invested in researching the answer to our many questions, and also your diligence in doing not only your job but following up on the occasions when the seller’s agent dropped the ball. We feel we received twice the attention from you we might reasonably have expected to receive. Although we doubt anyone can honestly say they enjoyed the stress and upheaval if buying a first home, we know we got through the process quickly and as painlessly as possible, in large part due to your aggressive representation of our interests and because your referred us to reliable professionals. We would not hesitate to refer our friends and family to you.

I would like to thank you for your exemplary promptness, unwavering diligence and sustaining good cheer throughout the transaction we just concluded. Your expertise, together with your lists of able consultants and contractors, was of great assistance in closing a rather difficult transaction. Perhaps your most critical role in this transaction was serving as an intermediary between the numerous participants. Your trustworthiness and candor with the parties to the transaction was instrumental in maintaining a spirit of cooperation through the vicissitudes of an uncertain closing. Thank you for a job very well done. Your skill and efforts were very much appreciated.

We are writing this letter to thank you for the terrific job you did in helping us to buy our new home. From the time we met, you explained what we needed; you were professional, informative, and always a pleasure to be around. You made us feel comfortable and easy in your company.

I didn’t want to let the day pass without writing you to thank you for the wonderful seminar. Perhaps the best things in life are free. It was well organized, informative and interesting and the materials you sent us home with are first rate. The explanation of the financing was the best I have ever heard. I can’t believe that no one managed to give me that information through three house purchases. I wish you had been my agent on the last three. You certainly will on the next one.

Lisa recently sold a house in Ballard for my wife and I after we relocated to san Diego. He efforts in completing the sale were nothing less than outstanding. Lisa’s professionalism was apparent from the outset; we feel Lisa made an extraordinary effort to provide quality service and went well beyond the call of duty to complete the sale. Lisa received praise from our local agent, our broker and the escrow agents in Seattle and San Diego for her courteous, professional approach. We are more than thankful to Lisa!

My husband and I wanted to let you know what a fantastic job Lisa did for us. Not only did she give us an accurate market appraisal, but she sold our house and then found us a new one. Anyone interested in buying or selling a house should get in touch with Lisa. We will recommend her to all. Her positive attitude and knowledge are truly an asset to your organization.
