Great Job Bernadette and team

Bernadette – It was a pleasure to work with you and your team. All questions were answered, all calls were returned and you kept everyone (including us!) on track with the closing of selling our home and the purchasing of our new home. Everyone who worked with us was professional and open to questions and easy to work with. Selling and/or purchasing a home is very stressful but from the beginning I knew we could trust you to take care of us and you did. Thank you for everything. We will highly recommend you to anyone looking for an agent.

Best Agent Ever!

Bernadette Pillar not only sold our home but helped us buy it as well. She is one of the most dedicated agents we’ve had the pleasure to work with. Her advise to us during the process was excellent and certainly worked to our advantage. She is very knowledgeable in real estate laws and is a consummate professional!
I would highly recommend Bernadette Pillar and her team to handle all of your real estate needs whether your buying or selling! I can make that recommendation as she represented us in both transactions.

Extremely Helpful!

Bernadette and her team were extremely helpful to us during our recent search for a new home. Nico spent a lot of time showing us potential homes and Bernadette listed and sold two homes for us. Their knowledge and experience of the Spokane market made all aspects of buying and selling go so smoothly. They are all about customer service and will go above and beyond to help their clients including answering phone calls and texts after business hours and on weekends, e-signing documents, showing up when we have last minute requests to view a home and literally answering all of our questions.

Very professional and understanding

I had to the pleasure of working with both Bernadette and Nico on the sale of our home and our new purchase. Both are very professional and I always felt like they had our best interest. They are both very knowledgeable in the real estate world. I would highly recommend both!

BEST Realtor in town!

Once Bernadette listed our home, we had several full price offers within days! We actually ended up getting MORE than our listing price! Her communication throughout the process was consistent and very much appreciated! Selling our home was a very emotional time for us as a family – which she understood and honored during the entire ordeal. Her thoughtfulness and ability to go above and beyond didn’t go unnoticed. I would recommend Bernadette and her entire team without hesitation!

Great Results

Bernadette helped my wife and I sell our house on the South Hill earlier this month. She was very professional and did an excellent job with the pictures and virtual walk-thru on the website. She is very busy and sometimes delayed in responding, but was always apologetic and responded every time. As with many sellers, the negotiating went smoothly for the most part and I give full credit to Bernadette for her professionalism and “Go get ’em” attitude. We sold above asking price and are very satisfied with our time working with her and Nico.

Best Agent Ever

When my wife and I bought our first home, we didn’t realize that real estate agents basically all get the same percentage commission. We figured that like in most industries, the more qualified and hard to get people cost more and Joe Schmo is a bargain. So we just used the first agent that someone recommended. We had already picked the house, we knew the price we wanted to pay, and the transaction was not complicated, so it worked out fine, but after taking the first-time homebuyer course, we had a twinge of regret that we hadn’t done our research and hired the best agent we could find. When it came time to sell our first home and buy our dream home, we knew we needed to use the best. One name came floating easily to the top: Bernadette Pillar. Upon reviewing what others had to say about her, we discovered that she had rave reviews with only one complaint: she’s too busy. Well, don’t you want your real estate agent to be well-regarded enough to be busy? I’d be worried if I was my agent’s only client. While it is true that it was occasionally difficult to get a hold of Bernadette, she always made sure to get back to us and made us feel like we were her most important clients. We just needed to be persistent sometimes with our questions. Bernadette’s help started with her signing us up for auto-notifications through her MLS site which helped us find the home in the first place. My wife and I are incredibly picky, and we thought for sure we would have to design and build our dream home ourselves. After months of waiting, the perfect home popped up on her system, and we were notified immediately. We were in the home within the hour and had an offer submitted that night. Within hours, there were at least 4 offers on the table for this home, and there would have been more I’m sure, but we put in an aggressive enough offer that the selling agent stopped accepting offers. Our transaction was very complicated: multiple offers on both transactions, timing a sale and purchase together, qualifying for financing while holding both mortgages for a short period, a contingent offer, a low appraisal, FHA financing for our buyer, a tight timeline, extensive inspection requests…this one had it all. Without Bernadette, this transaction never would have gone through. She went to bat for us every step of the way, and we came out on top in every issue. We could not be more grateful to Bernadette. We found a real estate agent that we recommend to everyone, and we found a lifelong friend.

Clients are Her TOP Priority

Bernadette is an experienced Realtor and a fantastic person to work with. She is professional, self motivated, reliable, dedicated, ambitious, and very productive. Bernadette’s customers and clients are always her top priority. As one of her clients it has been a real pleasure working together with her. She listed my home for me in the Spokane Valley and we had an offer within 3 days! If you need a Realtor make sure to give Bernadette a call.

Never Been Happier!

My husband and I were first time homebuyers. We knew exactly what we wanted and what we didn’t want. We had a specific area we wanted to be in, which unfortunately had very limited inventory. The second we found a house in that area (in our price range nonetheless!), we jumped on it. We met Bernadette on a Monday, after a very strong recommendation from a friend, looked at the house on a Tuesday, placed an offer on Wednesday, and the offer was accepted on Thursday. Bernadette went above and beyond explaining the entire process to my husband and I since everything was happening so fast and we were so new to this whole experience! She was always available if we ever had any questions whether it be through text, email, or a phone call. She took the time to get to know us personally. We never felt pressured by her. My husband, son, and I are now in our very first home and we have never been happier. I can’t thank Bernadette enough for all she has done helping us start our first home.

Awesome Job at Follow-up

Bernadette did an awesome job at follow up. I experienced both a sale of a home and buying of a home and she looks out for her customer’s best interest. (not focused on her bottom line, but MINE). She is great.

Went Out of Their Way

Used them for our house purchase. They went out of their way to answer our questions any time of day. Kept us up to date on everything going on. Everything went very smooth with their help.

Bernadette Pillar was AMAZING…she has unlimited resources and will not stop working for you till she gets the job done. She is a delight to work with and becomes just as much of a friend as she is an agent. Bottom line…whether you are selling or buying she gets the job done!
Kathy Bruce

Best Realtor in the Area!

My husband and I are so very thankful to have had Bernadette be our realtor. We live out of state and had tried to sell our home in the Valley several times. She was confident she would be able to help us and finally get the house sold.  She and her team worked literally way into the nights on getting the best buyers and handling extraordinary problems that came up. I know without all of her extra hard work, we would have been so stressed out with not being there to help. She found qualified people to handle all of the repairs and things that needed to be done for getting the house ready for selling.  I would recommend her to anyone looking for the Best Realtor in the area!

Wonderful to Work With!

Bernadette was wonderful to work with. She was thorough and continuously kept us updated on everything that was happening during our entire home buying process. She always made herself available to answer our questions at all hours of the day. There was never a time where we were left in the dark. She is dedicated to her clients and very knowledgeable. We are so thankful to have found her. If you’re looking for a kind, caring, compassionate realtor, Bernadette is the right choice.

I was in Spokane for 5 days looking at property. We made an offer on a home on the day before we were to return back to California. We met with Chris from the Bernadette Pillar Team on our way to the airport and took care of all the paperwork. Every step of the process was flawless and I do believe that Chris and the team went beyond the call of duty to help in this long distance process. We were so lucky to have met Chris, who made our purchasing experience the best. I highly recommend Chris and the Bernadette Pillar Real Estate Team for your next purchase.

The sweetest words….Deal Closed and Funded!

 We found our experience with Bernadette to be both agreeable and professional. Her marketing techniques are cutting edge, her rolodex of contractors extensive and her sales ability considerable. The buyer’s agent was new and inexperienced yet Bernadette kept her from straying off track too far with the judicious use of the carrot and the stick.Thanks Bernie!!!
Bill Coleman

Amazing Results

Bernadette went above and beyond in not only representing our interests as sellers but also took on the responsibility of the buyers agent when he made himself unavailable to handle an issue on behalf of his client at a time when he should have been present. The deal would not have gotten done without her intervention on behalf of the buyer. Wish we could change the Washington State laws regarding sellers paying for the buyers agent. He didn’t earn his commission at all and we had no choice but to pay him. Bernadette should have received all of the commission for her hard work and expertise.

Second to None!

It was a huge blessing when we discovered Bernadette Pillar. Even though we were living in Calgary, Alberta, Bernadette was close at hand in helping us buy our Loon Lake acreage. The entire process couldn’t have gone more smoothly. From start to finish we felt protected and important. We knew she had our best interest in mind and proved it as she went to bat for us ensuring every little detail was addressed and resolved. Since then we have engaged her in helping us sell and search for other homes. We have recommended her time and again and will continue to do so! Thanks, Bernadette!

Above and Beyond!

Bernadette was wonderful to work with and extremely helpful! She really cared about us as individuals and not just as clients. She helped us purchase our first home and took the time to explain/define everything in detail on the concepts we were so unfamiliar with. Bernadette has a very sweet personality and was always available when we needed her or had any questions. She went above and beyond to help us with our first home and I would definitely recommend her to anyone!
