“I know the price of success: dedication, hard work, and a devotion to the things you want to see happen.” Frank Lloyd Wright
Hello. My name is Ally Wangsness, and I would like to invite you to allow me to represent your interests on a journey which will culminate in one of the most important events of your life – the sale of your home or the purchase of your new home.
The importance of choosing a new home cannot be understated. It really is about placing yourself in an environment which is in essence symbiotic with who you are, and the places to which your dreams take you. It must reflect the needs of your family – whether near or far. It must sustain and motivate your soul and serve as a launching pad for your future. It must provide you comfort and peace.
To be successful in this goal requires an understanding of, and commitment to, the following principles: Knowing who you are and what you want; Extensive research of the Real Estate Market and opportunities therein; Understanding of financing options; Organization of documentation; Legal issues; Allocation of time to the process; and most important of all – Hard Work. As Vince Lombardi once said, “The dictionary is the only place that success comes before work. Hard work is the price we must pay for success.”
As your representative in this partnering process, I would like you to understand upfront, that my guiding light is embodied in the following: I believe in these essential qualities that are the keys to success: personal integrity, honesty, commitment, courtesy, wisdom and attitude.
I look forward to working alongside you toward a successful outcome in this momentous decision. Do contact me if you are thinking about starting your journey.Ally Wangsness
“Ally Wangsness did a great job handling the sale of our house and was instrumental in our success; we got the most out of a surprisingly hot market. The Open House was a rousing success! Over 100 people viewed our house and Ally handled this potentially overwhelming situation with grace and aplomb. We received nine offers and Ally was incredibly thorough and efficient in her review of the offers and provided outstanding insight to the relative strengths and weaknesses of each. We sold our house within one week for a sum well over the asking price and closing was painless. We highly recommend Ally and would use her again.” ~ John Meerscheidt and Julianne Ariail; July 11, 2013
“I was lucky to be able to work with Ally in the sale of a high-end, relatively complex, Seattle Real Estate sale. I hired Ally to help me sell my property and throughout the entire process Ally was professional, determined, and creative. My project was not straightforward and required Ally to provide a detailed and personalized plan for success. Ally was successful and I strongly recommend her.” ~ Michael Lande, WW Senior Director Business Development LiveHelp on Demand & Optimization Services at Oracle; March 2012
“I was linked with Ally to find a place to live in Seattle, and her creativity found the perfect place in first listings she provided. She was diligent and aggressive, constantly checking on the application process to ensure it didn’t languish. Ally pressed for additional information and benefits to make it a great experience. She also went above and beyond helping me to locate other facilities in the area where I wanted to reside, giving me the distance and address. If you need a real estate agent, pick Ally first! Let her know everything you want in a place, and if it exists, she’ll find it at a reasonable rate! You won’t find anyone better.” ~ Fred Jackson, Career development Liaison: Government Sector at TheSixSigmaWay; February 2011
