Katy is the ideal agent, (especially for people as picky and difficult as we are), her patience and understanding were endless. She is a mine of resourceful information and extremely professional. She also always finds the time to see you when you need most her advice and expertise. I already highly recommended her to my friends because she is among the best and also because she is much fun to be with which is very important. To buy or sell a house, it is well-known, can be sometimes much nerve-racking.

Laurie sold our cabin on Totten Shores in record time not giving up to much $$ from our pockets. Her negotiation skills are very polished and efficient. We couldn’t be more please and will certainly use her services in the future!

Katy is an exceptional real estate professional. Not only was she able to sell my house in a stagnant market, she genuinely had my interest in mind and found me a house that best fits my needs. She gives true meaning to the word "professional!" I had a great experience with Katy and would recommend her to anyone!

10’s yes! Laurie delivered what she promised, was accessible, listened, very knowledgeable and informative. She provided great information on what to expect for timelines, next steps, etc. flexible and responsive. Willing to work with our crazy schedules, using many different tactics-phones, fax email, texting asynchronous viewing of properties, signing and so much more for my husband and I. WE Thank You!

We first met Katy at an open house when we were looking for a house of our own. She seemed very friendly and knowledgeable and we ended up asking her to be our Realtor. She helped us find a house we wanted and in the price range that we could afford. She was always available and helped us work with both the home builder and mortgage broker to achieve for us the best deal possible. We definitely recommend her as a Realtor.

We felt like Laurie was really acting as our representative, covering all the bases and researching all the possible problems and logistics of a non-bank contract. She kept us aware of timetables and all pertinent information. Laurie also has great intuition, a rare skill in my opinion. It was the easiest house purchase I have experienced. Was a true professional and we will wholeheartedly recommended her to our friends and family! We have done contract work for over 25 years and gone through dozens of real estate agents and I only know of two who I would give a 5 ***** Star Rating to, and Laurie Rhyan is one of them.

I cannot recommend Katy highly enough. She calmed my nerves, walked me through every step, never pulled any punches, and made sure I understood and was comfortable with the intimidating process of selling my house. Her attention to detail was extraordinary and her expertise in pricing resulted in a quick sale.

Gary & Teresa Bollman, Tacoma WA

We would, without hesitation recommended Laurie Rhyan to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She was prompt in returning our calls, email and very organized, which we greatly appreciated. She attended every inspection and signing, we have nothing but great things to say about her and if we ever need an agent in the future she will be the first one we call.

Laurie and Katy are the BEST! Not only did they help me to find the perfect home, but gave me the insight into other aspects of the market and process I previously had not considered. They are incredibly intelligent and made the home buying process easy from start to finish. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

I highly recommend Katy Crofts and Laurie Rhyan as real estate agents. Their professional courtesy, attention to detail, and knowledge of real estate marketing tools and transactions was essential in the successful marketing and sale of my home.  Katy Crofts and Laurie Rhyan, Keller Williams Realty, in 2016 successfully marketed and sold my house in West Olympia. Their personalized marketing strategy included numerous home showings for potential buyers and real estate agents from Olympia, Tacoma, and Seattle. Also, as part of their marketing strategy, Ms. Crofts and Ms. Rhyan developed a real estate web application to provide home aerial and room by room in-house photo reviews. To augment the sale marketability of my home they helped plan and supervise reconstruction of my kitchen and staging of the home. Finally, their personal professional guidance in the final stages of the home sale contract was an invaluable aid to a successful and satisfactory conclusion.

My husband Don and I were "downsizing " from ten acres of land and 1100 feet of waterfront and saw a listing held by Katy and Laurie. A mere three acres and 175 feet of waterfront. From the very first phone call we were impressed! They were up-front about the challenges of the property and represented the benefits and features without over selling. My husband brought out the checkbook after our initial showing. We made an offer. We got cold feet and canceled the contract. We made another offer after talking about it. Then we changed our minds...again. Katy and Laurie were gracious each time. Having no shame we called them after a month and asked if the house was still for sale. They burst into laughter and said Yes! We made our third offer, doubled our earnest money and the seller accepted... again. They walked us through the county regulations , helped us find an inspector and kept us informed every step of the way. These two know how to assist both buyer and seller in the same transaction.  We felt very comfortable that all our questions were answered and our interests were represented. We have purchased / sold several homes over the years so we were not used to such professional service. They are like the Nordstrom of real estate polished, professional and a flexible return policy!
