We had the good fortune to meet Nicole at the beginning of our home search and are only disappointed that we only have 5 stars to provide! She was fantastic - she learned who we were first and what we thought we wanted (and was so patient with us as that changed). She helped us connect with a great lender and inspector as we were looking for an old home. We grew to trust her so much that we put an offer on our dream home when we were out of state and could not see it in person. We did so because we knew she had listened intently to us and could say that the house, neighborhood, etc. were exactly what we were looking for. While we miss seeing her for home tours we are thrilled with our new place and so appreciative that she was the person shepherding is through this process!

Working with Nikki cook was a pleasure. She was always available when we needed her, very talented technologically, and helped us find the right home for our family. Our transaction had some difficult twists and turns, but Nikki was always professional and unwavering. She helped us work through obstacles with a calm and proactive approach. We would happily use her again, and highly recommend her!

Todd & Amy

Christel was recommended to us by a coworker who had utilized her expertise in the past. We chose to use her to buy our first home. Christel answered all of our questions timely, and sometimes outside of normal business hours. She was always courteous and polite. It felt like she went to bat to get us here. Will highly recommend to friends or family in the future!

Nikki & Brandon L.

Great people to work with. Made buying our 1st home super easy and seamless.

Amy R.

Christel is exactly what I want in a Real Estate Broker. She is a good listener, responsive, and experienced. In the course of 2 months she handled 3 transactions for us, professionally and with a sense of urgency. My strongest recommendation!

Knowledge of your area where you want to purchase a home is so important. Thank you Gilpin Realty for having Brokers that are familiar with the area.

The Lookout Lodge

We couldn’t have asked for a better experience working with Nikki Cook of Gilpin! Buying and selling at the same time in this current market seemed like it was going to be a headache, but Nikki made the entire process so smooth for us! She answered every question right away and was so professional and personable from start to finish. I would highly recommend her services, and will be using her in the future for our real estate needs!

Courtney & Garrett

When it came to looking for a house, we asked around 4 to 5 agents. When we came across Nikki, it felt very natural to work with her as she is very easy to talk to and listens very well. She's professional at her job and is not pushy. If you need a question answered, she'll respond with a firm response. I would definitely recommend her to others who is in need of a house. The fact that my family was not treated differently as we are asian is also a huge plus and is a high point for her when it comes to her job and her profession. Thank you Nikki!

Evangeline & Dionisio

She is a Superwoman among real estate agents and I am happy to have the chance to recommend her. ​ I am so grateful to have had Christel as our agent. I just popped in one day at Gilpin and she happened to be the agent on duty. She listened carefully to all my specs and preferred locations. She immediately began to send me listings in my price range in areas I was interested in. Christel always answered all my texts, emails and calls immediately. She always answered with a "yes", "of course" or "I can do that". She stayed for the 3 hour inspection of the house. We were in a time crunch between our old house and the new one and she did everything she could to make the closing go quickly. She also advised us on matters such as bidding and contractors.

Spike - I want to thank you for all that you did for me which is just priceless. No words can describe my gratitude. Everyday I look around my apartment and smile. I look forward to going home after work and I sleep a lot better!


Christel helped us to sell our home in Marysville. We were prepared for a long process but our home sold within days with multiple offers and over asking-price. She was extremely professional and helpful throughout the transaction. Christel also helped us to search for and eventually find our new home in Edmonds. We spent hours and hours with her looking at properties and she was patient, helpful, and gave us very honest/ constructive feedback. We are now in the house of our dreams and I can't say thank you enough for making our home sale and purchase such a great experience. Thank you Christel!!

Jenny K.

Christel is very professional , knowledgeable, and able to get things done. We will definitely use her again. Sincere, friendly and diligent - I would highly recommend her.

Marilyn Blackburn changed our perspective of real estate realtors!! After 2 years of contacting different realtors and failing to find a home that fit our needs, we decided to try one last time with Marilyn. We entered our relationship with her very skeptical due to our last experiences with other relators. However, due to her knowledge, patience, great communication and hard work, she was able to find us our dream home. She stayed with us to the end and we cant thank you enough. Marilyn and her team is, with out a doubt, the very best! Thank you Marilyn!

Daniel & Christina R.

Christel VanAssche is a wonderful realtor. My fiancé spoke with her on a Monday and she started working for us immediately. By Tuesday evening she took us to tour a home, Wednesday we put in our offer, and it was accepted that night. I thought the process would take much longer but thanks to Christel it was quick and effortless! We love our new home!

Chelsea G.

Julianne Mckeown I would like to thank both Gilpin Realty and Julianne for selling our home for us. I am so glad that we chose Gilpin and that Julianne answered my call. Julianne is a fantastic agent! She made the selling process go so smooth and quick for us it was wonderful! After the first meeting with Julianne, I knew she was the one who could sell our home for us. She priced it for the market, perfectly. She was very thorough in her research and explaining every detail of the process to us. What I appreciated the most was that Julianne kept in touch with me constantly, even while we were just waiting for updates and during every step of the process. We feel Julianne worked very hard for us and the results were so much more than we expected. Julianne has a wonderful personality and she really cared and understood our needs. I am looking forward to having her help my mother with finding a home on this side of the mountains soon. Thanks so much for having such a terrific agent and a terrific Real Estate Company!

Camy & Bob E.

Rose McAllister, Thank you so much from the bottom of our heart for taking such good care of us through this experience! We couldn’t have done it without you! Hopefully we can keep in touch. You Rock!

Emily Johnson, I was one of those customers who was unsure exactly what I wanted. Emily worked with me for almost two years before I finally found what I wanted. Her honesty and professionalism exceeded the experiences I had had with real estate agents in other areas greatly. Emily made the experience enjoyable. I would not recommend anyone other than Emily for buying a new home.

Steven D.

Christel VanAssche, As an investor Christel has represented us on the sale of multiple properties. Over the years we have had many realtors sell houses for us but Christel’s attention to detail makes her one of the top agent/brokers in my opinion. From her talent in staging to using professional photography to capture the full potential, the presentation is outstanding. Couple this with her personality, her customer interaction and her years of experience in negotiating the deal for the best possible outcome, make her a great agent.

Richard W.

Emily Johnson, Emily showed amazing patience with us, helping us find a house that had everything on our wish list. She is honest & trustworthy and was all-around great to work with.

Russ and Crystal S.

Rose McAllister, Your the best!

Fair & Jim

Christel VanAssche, For my first home buying experience, I couldn’t ask for a better agent. Christel was knowledgeable, informative, and was a great resource. She was frequently in touch and personable. The house hunting and purchase was fast and easy and I am extremely happy in my new home. I will definitely be a return client whether buying or selling.


Spike Wahl, Spike Wahl has been my agent for 6 years. In that time she found me my dream home, sold that home in 9, (YES NINE) days, and found me THE PERFECT rental, when i decided home-ownership wasn’t for me. Spike goes all out for her clients…she’s detail oriented, “knows her stuff,” and goes the extra mile so your place will be seen by potential clients, brokers, lenders who are in the market for what you have to offer. It’s the little things that make the difference; she thinks outside the box….she’s available for questions…she has answers. Additionally, Spike has a team of experts working with her. Spike Wahl and Gilpin Realty Inc. know their business and i recommend them with 10/10 stars and will use them again when i have real estate needs. Theyr’re local: They care-it makes a difference!

Julianne Mckeown, We would like to thank you so much for all you did for us in the selling of our home in Snohomish. We appreciate the way you handled the transactions concerning this sale, and for looking out for our best interest. You are professional, friendly, and you went way above and beyond for us. You truly went that extra mile. You know how to make things happen! Even though we don’t live in that area anymore, we will still recommend you to our friends and family who do live there. We know the value of “Word of mouth advertising“! You Julianne, are an excellent real estate agent, and would be a hard act to follow. Thanks again for everything, and we wish the best for you!

Norris & Susie B.

Rose McAllister, Thanks again for your understanding, your assistance in getting a home for our son is much appreciated!

Gilpin Realty, Gilpin Realty has always been wonderful. Every time I come in they are friendly and very helpful.

Christel VanAssche, Our family was recently in the market for a new home. We ended up spending our Saturdays driving to open houses. We met Christel at an open house. She showed us several properties, but none were perfect for us. Soon she called us because she thought she had found the one for us. We went to look at it and fell in love. It was our dream home. Unfortunately, we were outbid. We were heartbroken, but she took us to look at other houses and we were convinced we’d never find one we liked as much as the one we lost. Soon after I expressed my sadness over losing that home she called us with a miracle. She’d spoken with the developer about building us a similar house on a lot in the same neighborhood (next door to be exact). Today we are living in our dream house and like it more than the home we lost out on. Christel worked her magic and changed our lives. She is the agent I recommend to friends and family in the market to buy a new home. I’ll be forever grateful because I know if it wasn’t for her we would have never had an opportunity like this.

The Love Family

Spike Wahl, I met Spike through a friend looking for a home. When it was time for us to get a home i ran to her office looking for her. I really like how honest she is and knows her job well. Spike does not beat around the bush and has no problem asking questions of anyone or letting them know the process doesn’t work that way. You will have her full attention and she will support you through the process. When i hear of someone who is looking for a home i’m very happy to tell them about Spike. Thank you for making our family’s dreams come true.

Connie & Mike S.

Gilpin Realty, Very helpful. Would recommend. The staff is very friendly.

Nikki R.

Julianne Mckeown, It is with great pleasure that we write this letter as a testimonial of the superior service that our family received from our broker, Julianne McKeown. We give Julianne our highest recommendation. Julianne’s unique talent set was invaluable to us and was extremely refreshing after the dealings we had with a previous agent. She understood the Snohomish County market and was willing to go the extra lengths to make our sale as seamless as possible. Every sale has its upsides and downsides but Julianne was able to respond quickly, reasonably and responsibly. Julianne did so much more for us than was required or expected. She was truly there for the entire process. Any problem or issue that developed, she did everything in her power to make right, in many cases, going above and beyond what her obligation required. We would describe her as fiercely loyal to her clients, hard working and tenacious. She is the “breath of fresh air” that everyone selling or buying real estate should look for. She is also one of the most positive, upbeat persons we have ever met in this industry. Working with her was refreshing and a true pleasure.

Troy & Cynthia P.

Spike Wahl, Love the staff and everything they have done for my family and I. Spike has gone above and beyond to help find a place to live while looking for our forever home. Thank you staff of Gilpin, we will continue to use your services in the future.

Emily Johnson, Emily agreed to list our log home, which was in a very unique market category. She knew how to be sure that we got top dollar in a market with very few comparable sales available. She marketed our home aggressively, advised us on staging, and brought in showings from across multiple counties. She became an expert on log homes in a short time, and offered to be present on second showings to answer questions for potential buyers. She tracked and followed up on all showings, and kept interested parties advised on our status. Because of this “above and beyond” service, we had two solid offers on our home, and accepted a full price offer. But here is what really makes Emily stand out — once the sale was accepted, she went into overdrive. She guided us through inspection, helped us find qualified and quick acting contractors to do the work, and literally hand carried paperwork between buyer and seller on closing to be sure that we closed. It was NOT her job to do this (although she would disagree) but she was not going to let any last minute issues keep this sale from going through. We were so happy to have her with us through all of the emotions that selling and buying a new home bring, and will never forget the many ways that she supported us.

Ted and Valerie S.

Jennifer Murphy, Great experience so far! Receptionist is super friendly and understandable. She was able to answer all my questions and Jennifer was super friendly.

Tina D.

Thank you for your recent help selling our home quickly so we could purchase the home we wanted in Snohomish. Using your services for the purchase and sale was a good experience. Your suggestions on prepping the home for sale and professional photography services really helped to make the best impression online for our sale. Selling, moving and purchasing a home can be stressful and you helped to smooth it out. We appreciated your willingness to communicate frequently and your friendly professionalism. Your availability and prompt responses were also much appreciated. Thank you so much for your help!

Stephanie Bischoff at Gilpin Realty was amazing in assisting me to find my new house. Stephanie was great! Very patient with me as I dragged her around to see lots of houses. This was my third house purchase and she is the best realtor I have ever used! Highly recommend.

Ashley R.

We bought our first home in Snohomish in June 2015, and Christel V. was amazing beginning to end. Our home search took us less then two weeks until she found us our dream home and placed an offer. Christel was very patient and helpful answering questions. She was very professional yet very personable - she made our first home buying experience a special one. She's a very sincere person who would go miles to make things happen and we are forever grateful for her help. We will use Christel for all our future home purchasing needs. Thank you Christel!!

Allyse B.

Christel is the consummate professional. From start to finish Peter and I were taken care of and walked through the process of buying our first house. When there were any delays in the process, Christel was right there to sort it out and keep the momentum moving forward. I appreciate that Christel cared about us as people first and buyers secondly. Not only did she help us find our dream home, she kept us organized and on track with all of the paperwork and details needed in purchasing. I highly recommend her because of her ongoing support in the process, punctual communication, organized hand and her depth of knowledge from years of experience. Thank you again Christel!
