Get to know the Badgley Team

Twice the experience! Known for their extensive knowledge of the market, their patience and their friendly attitudes, the father/son team of Bill and Jim Badgley has a reputation for making every transaction as stress-free as possible.

In my lifetime I have sold and purchased appx. 10 houses and this last sale of my townhouse in Bellevue was by far the best. Jim Badgley went way beyond anyone else in assisting me with the sale and move in of my present house. I would rate his service as superior.

–  Joe & Ginger Hart

Jim and Bill were highly recommended to us and we can say that they warrant that accolade. It was evident very early that they had much expertise in their field and had our best interests at heart. They were quick to respond to our inquiries and guided us through the process of selling our home flawlessly. We accepted an excellent offer on the second day of showing!

–  Jim & Helen Boyle

Jim and Bill are a class act. We’ve now bought 3 places with them and have loved each one. They’re a blast to work with and we recommend them to anyone looking for your dream home.

–  Desney Tan, PhD, Microsoft Research

Bill and Jim are a dedicated real estate team. They were committed to meeting our satisfaction at all points of the deal. They took great photos of our home for sale and within six hours had offers coming in. They effectively managed the deal between three competing offers and got us more money than we expected for our home. They made the transaction painless and easy. They knew how to market the property effectively–a very impressive and knowledgeable team. Go with them—they are the best!

–  Stephen & Noelle McKain

We were pleased to have the Badgleys represent us in the sale of a house in Woodinville…The Badgleys proved to be very knowledgeable and competent in handling every detail, including compliance with local laws, arranging contractors to fix problems with the property, and staging the property for an effective presentation, both on site and on line. They were always responsive to our questions. The sale went quickly and smoothly. The Badgleys showed good judgment and fairness in handling competing offers, and obtained a good price. We are thoroughly satisfied.

I want to thank Jim and Bill, who made this all possible. I am loving my new place. I am so happy. Everything worked out beautifully. It was not possible to orchestrate this smoother than it happened. Everything fell into place right on time.

–  Jason Johnson

Friendly, efficient execution of the deal. Best of all it sold almost instantly. Keep up the good work!

–  Dieter & Rosemarie Matthes

You two performed magnificently and we are proud to call you our friends and fellow professionals. You navigated us through some very rough waters and we went into it with the highest level of confidence in you, and came out of it with the greatest admiration possible. We will also refer all of our friends and family to you, which is the greatest compliment we can pay – and not nearly enough for the way you handled both our purchase and our sale. Thank you so very much!

–  Dr. Terry & Sharon Grubb

I’m a no nonsense kind of woman, who seeks to hire “A” level professionals to get the job done…the first time. Jim is just that professional. He shoots for excellence across all levels of his work; from customer service, to market research to execution… Jim’s knowledge is vast and is seen as an asset when clients need information that reaches beyond just real estate. He is well versed in technology, is exceptional in both written and verbal communication and has built relationships and community with people to help him get the job done in its entirety – and in the most efficient way possible.

–  Kim Crumpler, Owner of Uniquely Savvy

Working with Jim was a great experience. We were moving to the Seattle area from out-of-state, and really had no background to go on. Jim took the time to understand the type of home we were looking for likes and dislikes in neighborhoods, and education priorities for our son, then made a great set of recommendations on areas to focus our search. He did such a great job; we’re still in the same place 10 years later, and still love it. But if we ever do move, it will be back to Badgley Homes to take care of us.

–  Tom Blackwood, Director at Microsoft

We had our house listed for 5 months with another agent without an offer. We decided to change agents and were referred to Bill and Jim. They immediately suggested some changes and helped us carry them out. We listed with them and the house sold in 2 days.

–  Walt & Marge Harrison

Jim Badgley lives up to his excellent reputation. We benefited from his knowledge of the market and his extensive experience, resulting in a fast and stress-free transaction. I would never buy or sell property without his expertise and guidance.

–  Eva Cherry

I would highly recommend Jim to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. His professionalism is of the highest caliber, he pays attention to detail with the needs of each individual client in mind, and he knows how to sell houses. Aside from that, he sincerely is one of the good ones. He’s just fantastic and a pleasure to work with!

–  Louise McBrearty, Proprietor, Jewel Cleaning Service

I have brought Jim into a number of my probate cases to sell the real estate contained therein. It is refreshing to work with Jim because he has a “can do” attitude. There are often “issues” associated with marketing, listing, and selling a decedent’s real property but Jim navigates through them quickly and efficiently. I highly recommend him to you!

–  Peter Andrus, Partner at Jelsing Tri West & Andrus PLLC

I highly recommend Jim for all of your Puget Sound Residential real estate needs. Professionalism, skill, diligence and integrity are qualities that have been consistently on display in the 10 years or so that I have had the privilege to work with Jim and his team… In listing situations, the litmus test is the degree to which seller’s expectations are matched by final sales results and Jim consistently sets expectations for both days on market and sales price that are well founded and ultimately substantially realized.

–  Chris Butaud, President, Cleveland Street Mortgage, Inc.

I had the great pleasure of leveraging Jim Badgley’s services for my first home purchase in 2000. I was confused, in a high state of stress, as I didn’t know what my living situation would look like, and did not know where the first step needed to be taken. Jim stepped in, took great care to educate me on my options, the market, and areas where he felt were safe and good for resale as well as what areas weren’t. In hindsight, Jim’s predictions and statements were all 100% correct. Jim made the home buying experience pleasant and seamless… there was no question that the high level of service was maintained and in a cutthroat market Jim kept and strengthened my trust.

–  Jon Edwards, IOC Manager at Puget Sound Energy

Jim spent the time up front to understand what my family and I were looking for. He was patient with us, but at the same time helped us move quickly… He was more than reasonable in the transaction and helped make each of the deals go through smoothly – timely, accurate, dependable, and thorough on all details of all the contracts.  After the deal was done he didn’t disappear. He made time for us and helped us tap into his network of service providers to find dependable contractors… We’re here to stay now that we found the perfect home but if we ever do move on we’ll know who to call!

–  Mike Ross, President at DSL Northwest, Inc.

Jim is a man of integrity. I trust him with our elderly clients who are considering making a move. Jim offers excellent service and keen insight to the real estate market with no pressure. Being a former real estate executive I have had the opportunity to work with 100s of Realtors a year. Jim is one of the best.

–  John Whitney, Community Sales Manager, The Bellettini

I used Jim as both a buyer and a seller and he really went the extra mile for me! He researched, and even used my house as an example of what an agent that thinks out-of-the-box can do by offering turnkey services. He even tiled my kitchen backslash himself! I was even stunned when he recommended that I should raise the price on my house because he felt it could justify it. Through his hard work and expertise, my house listing was postponed until market conditions were right, then we listed the house, had the open house on super bowl Sunday, and got a 100% list-price offer all in the same weekend. Great job! I highly recommend Jim as a real estate agent.

–  Roger Noia, Sr. Marketing Manager at GoodMail Systems

Jim is a highly respectable and responsible professional Real Estate agent. Very easy to work with, knowledgeable in his field, and reliable person to work with. I used him twice… and results were higher than my expectations. Thank you, Jim, for your hard work and great relationship with customer.

–  Daniel Cho, 787 Propulsion Engineer at Boeing

I was so impressed with the competency and the professionalism that was demonstrated that I was completely comfortable recommending Jim to both my boss and to his boss, who are both in the process of relocating to the area.

–  Glen Cowan

Jim knows the area very well and he will really do his best to fulfill your wishes. Thanks so, so much!! I really appreciate your help! You are the BEST!!
