I am naturally distrustful of the relationship between a realtor and client, as it seems like there are ultimately disparate interests, but I didn’t feel that way with the Divas. Kim and Chavi are great! My wife and I had pretty different things we were looking for in a house and the Divas really listened to both of us and kept coming up with great places to show us. We started out thinking we wanted a green built condo and then after seeing some places and talking, we changed gears and decided we wanted a house with a yard. Â They didn’t pressure us, showed us all neighborhoods, and we eventually found a great place. Â They are fun to work with and honest, and followed through with everything they said they would do. Â I would feel confident telling anyone to work with them! Read all of our reviews on Yelp!Â»
My husband Michael and I were first time home buyers and looking for a Realtor. Â He was looking on Yelp and saw that Team Diva Real Estate had very good ratings, and I won’t lie, the name kinda grabbed our attention. Â We were looking for a place in Capitol Hill and Kim knows this place like the back of her hand! She also seemed to know what we liked very quickly. Â There was a couple times where we said we saw a place online and wanted to check it out. Â She didn’t try and talk us out of it, but she seemed to be hesitating though we insisted. Â She was dead on! On those two occasions we walked right in and out and said “We should’ve trusted your instincts!” Â We weren’t able to afford much, especially for Capitol Hill for the size we were looking for. Â But Kim was able… Read More »
Today is a sad day in Team Diva land. Our summer intern, Chris Clem, leaves us to return to Seattle University. During his stay with us he was dubbed the “Him-Tern” by our Diva Dweller pal Mia. Chris came into our Diva Entourage during the Diva’s Take the Hill event. The first time we met Chris we thought of him as a quiet sort of fella. We weren’t quite sure if he would survive as an intern in the fast-paced madness of our Diva office. How wrong we were! Chris showed up his first day on the job and jumped in full force.Â Chris developed a massive Client Retention Program and database for us Divas and he also created a communication system for the team. His efficiency and positive attitude in everything he took on for the team was unbeatable. Plus, he took one for the team by allowing Ms.… Read More »

The Adventure School has been around Seattle for awhile. They are the go to gals for events, marketing, brand development and happenings for some of our favorite organizations. Specifically, anyone who went to Velocity Dance Center’s Greatest Move on Earth remembers the event in this magical surreal way. The executive director of Velocity said they made it possible for her to just glow and celebrate Velocity’s amazing transformation. The video from the greatest Move on Earth event inspired us to totally rethink how we connect with our folks and launch Diva TV. That’s the impact The Adventure School has on the community. The Adventure School has stepped out and decided to open The Adventure Store. Consider it your urban supplies for that perfect adventure. Everything from handmade arrows for spearing your lover to the Macy Necklace made with resin on a leather thread. Simply said – Fabulous Divaness. Currently, I’m… Read More »

Team Diva Real Estate has been using professional photography to market our listing for the past 6 years. We hire professionals because we know the intrinsic value of an engaging photograph and – these Divas are a picky bunch.Â We expect all the homes we list to look as fabulous as possible. The photography needs to draw the buyer into the home and make them linger long enough to decided that this home is worthy of a “non-virtual” viewing.Â Stellar photography often makes the difference between selling at top market value versus languishing on the market for months. Seattle PI ran a great article about the actual value in home prices for those who use professional photographers. For a home over $1,000,000 the difference can be around $100,000. Professional photographs can result in a $5,743 increase in price for a medium priced home in Seattle. Here is the entire article… Read More »
