Mike Hanns with Realty Pacific Northwest was really easy to work with and made it possible to sell our home by owner with all of the bells and whistles (MLS promotion and key box) that you normally get with a full service agent. He helped make selling our own home a painless process that allowed us to save thousands. Thanks again for providing such a great service!
I am pleased to report that we received an offer on
our home, from a qualified buyer, on the same day as
our home was listed on the MLS by Realty Pacific
Northwest through Mike Hanns! Our home was on the
market FSBO for one week prior to our listing with
Mike. Our open house and marketing (local papers,
signs and flier) yeilded a lot of interest, but not by
qualified buyers. Using Realty Pacific Northwest
enabled us to maintain control of the events involved
in selling our home throughout the pending sale and
the closing process which was important to us, and
enabled us to save thousands of dollars on a listing
agent fee. I have recommended Mike’s service to
several of my friends and I would do the same to
anyone looking to sell their home independently and
Best Wishes on your real estate adventures! Wendy Stone

My wife and I recently decided to try to sell our home “by owner” and, at first, it was challenging to attract potential buyers and assure agents that we were willing to work with them. We also received unwanted calls from realtors looking for a lead on new listings. The Register Guard advertising bills were piling up but only a few calls were coming in.
A friend and advisor suggested that we list our home in the MLS using a flat-fee service provided by Mike Hanns of Realty Pacific Northwest. For a nominal fee Mike listed our home in the MLS, provided a professional sign for our yard and set up a lockbox to facilitate showing. Just over a week after we listed in the MLS, we received an offer that led to the sale of our home. We also received a backup offer that helped encourage our buyers to close the deal rapidly. The MLS listing provided good exposure at a reasonable price and it helped legitimize our “by owner” sales effort. The result was a quick sale and we saved thousands of dollars that would have been spent on sales commissions. Mike also provided valuable advice along the way.
If I were to do it over again, I would have skipped the Register Guard advertising and the generic sign from Home Depot and immediately listed in the MLS through Mike. I think it’s a terrific value.

Thanks for your assistance with selling our house. It was a real benefit to have your resource as a listing agent. It took two days after the listing was available to sell our house! We would definitely use your service again in the future.

Thanks for your help with selling our home. As you know, we were trying to “go it alone” as much as possible and you helped us do that. Not only did you get us listed in the Multiple Listing Service for the most reasonable price in town, but you answered lots of our questions that I’m sure went beyond your job description. You always returned our phone calls quickly and it only took about ten days for the house to sell after listing it with your service. Thanks for helping us through a couple of stressful weeks!
