We were looking to buy in an area where properties come on the market infrequent, and competition is fierce when
they do. To find the best possible agent we researched thoroughly for a reputation of creating happy customers
leading us to contact Buz McKinley. Buz impressed us with the time and care he took to deeply understand our
vision, priorities. and preferences. He used this understanding to help us quickly narrow in on our dream property
and showcased his expert negotiation skills in navigating a very complex multi-owner situation to
a successful
outcome for us. We feel extremely fortunate to have landed our dream property, especially in this competitive market,
and it, thanks to Buz McKinley.

We wholeheartedly give Buz McKinley our highest possible recommendation!

1 was referred to Buz from a mutual friend. My wife and I worked with him for a little over a year before we finally
closed on our first home purchase. During the time working with
Buz. he proved to be an invaluable resource for us,
especially since we purchased our new Washington home while living in California. He always returned my questions
and calls promptly, which was very important since my wife and I were first time home buyers and at that time living in
a different state. He quickly determined what was important to us after sitting down when we first met. With that said,
the most important value was his knowledge and expertise of the many neighborhoods of Seattle. He advised which
one, best fit our needs and which did not. Finally, his rich experience of being a realtor in Seattle for over 20 years
was clear, as he confidently worked with our mortgage broker and negotiated with the seller to make sure
we were able to close on the ideal home. We are so pleased with our new home, and are enjoying our new life in

I highly recommend Buz McKinley to any person who is looking to either buy or sell their home in the greater Seattle

Max & Buz Mckinley were extremely professional and easy to work with throughout my entire home hunting/buying process. They went above and beyond from beginning to end to ensure I was comfortable and confident in each decision that was made. They are respectfully honest, patient, and extremely knowledgeable/well-versed realtors. I never felt in the dark, because they worked with me as a team to make sure we were always on the same page. I never once felt rushed or pressured during the search process, as they put me at ease and assured me the right place would come along at the right time- and even talked me out of a few close calls! When I did eventually find my match, they were proactive in taking the necessary steps to close the deal.

As this was my first home buying experience, I can confidently say that I would not have had it any other way! I highly recommend Max & Buz Mckinley as agents. They helped me find my perfect home!
