Testimonials - Ann Samuelson at Cascade Sotheby's

It is with immense pleasure that we recommend Ann Samuelson as a real estate agent to any person or family looking to buy or sell a home. After interviewing a handful of agents it was a "no brainer" that Mrs. Samuelson was the obvious choice for our manufactured home sale. Her ambitious attitude stood out the most and her commission was lower than the other agents we spoke with.
Ann is highly talented technologically and made excellent use of the relevant search engines and real estate databases to quickly sell our manufactured home. When we use the word "quickly" it is because our home was only on the market for 41 days (in the middle of winter) when we received and accepted a very appealing offer, close to our full asking price.
A master with the contract negotiations, Ann came up with a deal that was good for us and made the buyer happy as well. Throughout this home selling process we had several road blocks along the way due to the strict regulations regarding manufactured homes. We were also plagued with unprofessional help from the bank that held our current home loan. Despite it all, Ann tackled every single hurdle and kept us completely informed on a daily basis. She knows Clatsop County like the back of her hand. There is nothing that escapes Ann's attention when it comes to property in this area.
We found Ann to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were her only customers, although we know that was not the case. She returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. She is also highly personable with an engaging attitude. Ann was always honest and her advice worked like a charm.
We were fortunate to have crossed paths with Ann and are privileged to count her as a friend. We are pleased to recommend Ann Samuelson to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is hands down the best in the business. We are currently looking to buy a new home and she will be our first choice in real estate agents. We look forward to having the pleasure of working with her again.

Ann is tremendous help in finding her clients a property that is within budget, fitting the

needs of her clients, while caring about their input at every stage of the process. As a

Government Building Codes Official and Licensed Home Inspector I have witnessed first

hand her concise, caring and professional mannerisms. She is very professional in her

approach and upholds the highest integrity all the way through to the end of the Realty

process. Ann always looks out for the client’s interest and often insists on Home Inspections

even when lenders do not require them, which truly protects the buyer and seller. I have

rarely seen such integrity in the way she deals with Home Inspectors and lets them diligently

perform their work without any attempts at undue influence. I would recommend Ann to

anyone buying or selling his or her biggest investment!!

From a FishHawk Lake homeowner....

Ann got it done! Ann was the one Realtor that worked for us after years with others in area. She worked hard with fresh ideas which ultimately sold our rural home. Her integrity, grit, and dedication to the seller proved true. You will get results with listing your home with Ann!

Our search for a second home spanned several months and Ann was our partner every step of the way. She was personable and professional, persevering and patient. Ann knows the area and history; she even introduced us to some folks who gave us a feel for what it's like living in Astoria. Ann did an outstanding job, and was great to work with. We highly recommend Ann to anyone looking for a realtor who is responsive and will look out for your best interests.

Ann was the fourth realtor we had made contact with concerning selling our home and buying another home or land to build on. She was the only one that followed up after our initial contact. Ann worked hard at showing us every property in the area that might fit our needs. When we weren't finding anything already built, we shifted to looking at available land. She made contact with local developers for us. We found the lot we decided to buy on our own but it was out of the area we had been looking at. Ann went with us through the process of negotiating and purchasing the homesite.

Very creative in finding solutions. Ann showed us about 6 listings to accern what we were looking for, then tailered the search, which greatly respected our time. She also showed us two awesome properties that were not on the market-one of which we bought. Ann negotiated with the Owner, and convinced him to accept our offer which was significantly less than the market price. She is very, very good at what she does.

Reflecting back over the past year I felt the need to say THANK YOU for your help this year. Your assistance was tremendous to our efforts at the lake. Getting Senator Johnson to help made an incredible difference. Our Spillway/Fishladdder project is now in the funding stage. Our dredging permit which we were desperate for is secured for another 5 years. And with exception of ODFW the agencies have become much easier to work with.

Without your efforts none of this would have happened.

Happy Holidays!

Ann Samuelson is an unusual realtor in that she doesn't impose her will upon the Buyer in any way. When I told her my price range, she didn't go 50-100k above it, as had so often been the case with previous realtors. She stayed well within my range, finding a wonderful home for my family in a short period of time. That characteristic - finding just what works for people without imposing another agenda sets her apart from other realtors I have worked with over the years. In the last 20 years or so, I have bought and/or sold 7 houses, so I have a bit of experience with realtors.

Ann is unparalleled in the amount of research she does and in her ability to narrow down the number of properties the Buyer goes through based upon her knowledge of their desires and the entire western region of Oregon. Furthermore, she was dogged in her pursuit of my goals, which were quite demanding. I wanted to close on the house in less than a week! Ann was able to pull this feat off, not only by working with the builders agent, but more importantly, because she knew everyone in the county, she was able to work with the title company and everyone, to accomplish this Herculean effort.

I would not hesitate to recommend Ms. Samuelson to anyone, in any price range, because I know she has tremendous people skills coupled with the ability to get it done.

There is not a broker within 300 miles that can do what Ann does. She makes your journey into a new home like a walk on the beach in 75 degree weather with a friend.
