"To say our recent home purchace was a rather rocky process would be an understatement.  Our Thurston County home sold in 3 days with an agressive closing period.  We needed our agent to be prompt with our purchase contract, have attention to detail, and cover all the bases so our transition was smooth.  To compound issues, we ran into problems with our loan underwriter.  We needed our agent to step in, roll up his sleeves and help us maneuver through the sale.  Phil Harlan was everything we needed him to be, and more.  We've used Phil for both our home purchases and he has consistently provided us the expertise and professional representation we needed in our transactions.  Thanks Phil !   -Chris and Jennifer Aldrich, Onalaska WA"

Just wanted to say thanks so much for the way you handled our transaction. Even with the "Bumps" you still kept things moving and we truly apreciate that.

Most certainly we would highly recommend you to anyone considering using your services so please do not hesitate to use me/us as a customer source in the future.

Take care and all the best.

Dear Phil,
I am writing to thank you and your crew for selling my father’s house in Lacey. Like any real estate transaction, there were unanticipated issues with the house. In all instances when you called with a problem you had a solution as well, which was greatly appreciated. I particularly appreciated the fact that you responded immediately to all of my calls and concerns and communicate effectively during all parts of the transaction. In short, you made the transaction work from start to finish!

Many thanks, Lynn Burlingame

To Whom it May Concern,
I have known Phil Harlan for approximately 15 years and have worked with him on several transactions in Real Estate. We have also served on committees with the multiple listing Association and the Thurston County Realtors Association. Phil has been very professional with very high ethical standards working with the public, committees and sales and lending institutions. Phil is familiar with the Real Estate market n the South Sound area and would be an asset for any person or company that listed their property with him. I would recommend Phil to handle any of my Real Estate Transactions because of his hard work and communicative abilities.

“A real estate agents, agent." I have known and worked with Phil for nearly 10 plus years in the real estate business and you be can certain you’re in good hands. If a real estate agent did need an agent they would call Phil Harlan. He treats you with respect, and the utmost care to see that your transaction goes smoothly. This industry requires an agent to pay close attention to details, and really stay on top of the process with everyone. Phil knows the ins and outs of putting a real estate sale together. Phil is one agent I always refer my clients to!

We could not be happier with the service we received from Phil Harlan. He worked very hard to find us just the right house. He sent us numerous e-mails with lots of options and worked hard to learn our likes and dislikes. His knowledge is very good about home values in all the areas around here. We feel we got a great deal on the purchase of our new home and are very happy there.
With the sale of our old property we ran into some rather stressful complications that could have been costly. He negotiated very well with the buyer and cut our cost for repairs and such to a minimum. We would use Phil again and have and will recommend Phil to all our friends, family and colleagues.

I have closed escrow transactions for Phil Harlan for more than ten years. Phil’s clients are always calm and confident at closing, because Phil explains the process and takes care of any loose ends prior to the signing. There are no surprises at the signing table. Phil takes great pride in doing his job well and expects everyone on his team to be as efficient and prepared as he is. I have previously and will continue to refer business to Phil.
