We had been in the market for a few weeks looking for our first home when we happened
to meet Alta over a chance encounter. We had a pretty good idea of what we were looking for but needed someone with patience and experience to guide us through the home-buying process. Alta not only met but exceeded all our expectations!
We found Alta to be very knowledgeable and resourceful. She was always very patient and
prompt in taking the necessary steps to address any concerns or questions that we had.
She had some great references for home inspectors and home insurance. She proactively
kept us well informed throughout and always went the extra mile to help meet the dates.
With Alta there was never a doubt that she always had our best interests in mind.
We are sincerely thankful to Alta not only for her professional help in getting us
our dream home but also for her personal touch to the proceedings which really made
our home buying experience so much more pleasant and less overwhelming. We have already started recommending Alta to our friends

We were impressed with Alta from the moment we met her. First impressions are critical with us. She is detail oriented, professional, thorough and consistent. Alta's work ethic is second to none. She listed and sold our home and was on the selling end of the town home we eventually bought. We would not hesitate to use Alta's services again and would recommend her highly to anyone in need of her expertise....... Don and Jean Kirshner
Alta is one of the best agents I've ever worked with. Buying my home with her 4 years ago was awesome, but I didn't realize how awesome she was until I sold this home and then compared her to all the other agents in Victoria, Canada where I was purchasing a home. If she was available in Canada, I would call upon her again. She exceeded my expectations every day and her¦ use of technology to make my life easier, keeping me in the loop at all costs, driving for completeness, knowledge of the housing market and all the processes, constant comfort when I didn't sell right away, taking calls after hours, responding to e-mails after hours. The list could go on and on. Alta is amazing, she rocks!.......Sean Daniel, Microsoft
Alta created a personal service strategy tailored to our specific needs. She is great, and as a result, Windermere benefits from her professional service with a personal touch. Add in her attention to detail and obvious experience, and the combination is tough to beat......... Mike and Denise Lettig, Key Bank
Our agent, Alta Strayhan, was a pleasure to work with and her staging of our home was a wonderful part of her package. She was professional, friendly, understanding and so easy to talk with and discuss our strategy.......Mike and Kim Parkinson
Seller and Buyer
Alta totally impressed me with both her depth of knowledge of the real estate market and her skills at listening in order to determine the best properties to present to us. When we decided to sell another property there was no question that we would select Alta.
The results of her work in buying our present home and selling our other property were superb. I highly recommend her......Randy Nelson
Outstanding, personalized, professional. She knew the market. Additionally as we were out of town most of the time during the process, she went above and beyond to help with many items- like being present to allow the transport company to pick up my car- one small example. Alta has always been willing to be flexible. She was on a personal vacation but communicated to us on matters as she had cell service even though she had designated back up support. We were very pleased to have her represent us in the sale of our home...........Norm and Cassandra Groh, Xerox
Alta, thank you so much for helping me buy my house! Working with you has been great. You were so helpful throughout this process and we really appreciated it. We are really happy with your service and the house. Thanks again, Emily Rao
Uprooting your family and moving to a new city is one of the most stressful events of one's life. We had the privilege of working with Alta Strayhan and Brenda Rosellini of Windermere when we moved from Denver to the Seattle area last summer. As newcomers to the area, they oriented us toward the best areas to live and helped us figure things out in a particularly crazy real estate market. Working with them non-stop for over 5 months, they were always encouraging and never let us give up. We always felt that they were on our team and helped us find our new home. Even after we moved in, they were still there for us. We encountered some unexpected issues from the builder that brought us considerable headache and heartache. Not once did we feel that we were alone on this, and they helped us navigate some difficult territory. Alta and Brenda's post-close customer service and support was tremendous.
Without any hesitation, we highly recommend Alta Strayhan and Brenda Rosellini if you are in the market to buy or sell a house..... Roy and Jennifer Yen
Alta listed and sold our townhome demonstating: 1) complete and professional research of the market in recommending an aggressive listing price, compared to other realtors 2) extensive knowledge of the local downtown Bellevue market 3) a willingness to support and a responsiveness to provide, many times on short notice, appointment- only house tours 4) in depth knowledge of the process (ie sales agreements and forms) 5) confidence in recommending refusal of early offers to get closer to the listing price. 6) valued recommendations when multiple offers were received........Ardell and Frankie Anderson
