“Hank and Chesley did such a wonderful job helping my husband and I find a new home. They were amazingly responsive and available to us at our beck and call, which is asking alot of them as they have many other clients! Their attention to detail was extensive and even impressed the other contractors we were working with, for example one seller almost accepted our lower offer because they were so impressed with our organized and detailed offer. Highly recommend!”
~Stacie and Ryan Anderson
“I can't recommend Henry and Chelsey enough. They have all of the qualities you would expect from excellent real estate agents - they are knowledgeable, responsive, always available, are very familiar with the area, and bring with them a wealth of experience they make available to their clients when navigating all aspects of the home-buying process. On top of all of that, though, their teamwork as a couple goes well beyond the sum of its parts, which provides you with a team who knows exactly when honey will catch more flies, insightful evaluation will win out, and when it's time to just be a bull and stand firm. Every part of the process that could induce anxiety in a normal human seems to be second-nature to them. Also, I dare you to work with them and not end up with a new pair of friends in your life.
Highly recommended. You can't go wrong with the Samontes.”
“The Samonte Group was extremely personable, professional and knowledgable. They understood the market and provided useful listing strategies. The communication was excellent and met all of our selling deadlines. I would definitely recommend this group.”
~Jill and Sean Murphy
“They are AWESOME to work with. Their expertise, knowledge and compassion are above the rest! They truly want the b st for you. We trust them to explicitly. Love them!”
~Debbie and Gary Ludlam
“I thought I knew what a good real estate agent was. Then I worked with Henry and Chelsey Samonte and I understood what GREAT was! Here is why:
Their follow through was impeccable. Every single big and small question that I asked was addressed in near-real time. They were extremely knowledgeable about every step of both the home purchasing and sale. When we met to discuss the properties I was interested in, they always came armed with pertinent information on the home to ensure I was informed and making a data-driven decision.
When we needed to get an offer out in one day, they both worked until late into the day to ensure the offer was submitted to the listing agent so we did not miss the opportunity to purchase my dream home. I am now living in the environment I had envisioned for myself over the past 20 years thanks to their diligence!
Chelsey and Henry were an absolute joy to work with. They have a wonderful positive “can do” attitude and were always supportive in addressing any concerns I had throughout the sale and purchase process. As a project manager, I understand how important it is to handle critical details and meet a client’s expectations. They continually exceeded my expectations throughout my engagement with them.
I would wholeheartedly highly recommend the Samonte Group (Henry and Chelsey) to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home!”
“I cannot recommend Henry and Chelsey highly enough! What a team! My sister was searching for a new home, and I knew she would have the best of care through every phase of the process with Henry and Chelsey. She trusted my recommendation that they are the absolute best. She had high expectations I knew they would fulfill...and exceed.
When she found her dream home early on a Sunday morning, they moved quickly to ensure we were viewing the property within just a couple hours. Thanks to their expertise and professionalism in working with the listing agent, my sister submitted an offer that day that was soon accepted. They were incredibly responsive and communicative throughout the entire process, drawing on their years of experience to guide her at every turn.
My sister was so impressed that she listed her former home with them. Thanks to their coaching and support, she received multiple offers quickly, closing with a smooth transaction.
Thank you for making another dream come true, Henry and Chelsey!”
“We both bought and sold with Henry and Chelsey. As first time home buyers/sellers, we had many detailed, specific questions, all of which they were able to provide complete, knowledgeable responses, along with practical experiences that applied to our specific questions. They've seen it all, and know the advantages and pitfalls of almost any scenario we could imagine. They were always available, to the point I would wait to ask questions, as I knew they would drop whatever they were doing to respond. Their buying negotiations yielded us a win with bonuses, in the HOT Seattle market. Their selling strategy, though I doubted it, paid off with multiple exceeding escalations, and ultimately a cash sale beyond our thought of possibility! Incredible performances, that we celebrate every time we look around our amazing home.”
~Louise and Tera Figueroa
“We love working with Chelsey and Henry! They have helped us buy and sell several homes and each time, their knowledge and experience were instrumental in getting the best deal for us.
We are very impressed by their communication and that they answered our questions at all hours of the day. We very much appreciated all the timely updates and their honesty in advising us about the houses we looked at and the market situation.
They are great people who care a lot about their clients. We definitely recommend Chelsey and Henry to anyone who is looking for dedicated and hardworking real estate agents. They will do all they can for you!”
~Kevin & Christina Brooks
“The Samontes helped us with the purchase of our new house in addition to the sale of our old house, all in a span of a few weeks! They made a challenging and stressful process into a smooth and easy transition. They have a wealth of knowledge and lists of helpful professionals that assisted us in our journey. We would recommend Henry and Chelsey to anyone needing a new house or selling their old house or BOTH!”
~Cindy and Ryan Kimmel
“Hank and Chelsey made buying a house a great experience! This was the first time I had bought a house and they helped walk me through the process, get me set up with good lenders, etc. They were great about searching for prospects daily and sending us information about them. They were very flexible and available at all hours to answer questions and look at properties. I am going to miss driving around looking at houses with Hank but we are so happy with the house they found us. I would highly recommend Hank and Chelsey!”
~Holly R Sato
“Short summary, you are in good hands with Henry and Chelsey! There are very knowledgeable about the local market, and have been in the game for a number of years. We used their services to sell our townhouse in Bellevue and at the same time buy a home in Redmond. We couldn’t be happier with the services they provided. They are always available, good with returning calls and communicating via email. We have worked with another agent in the past here before we found the Samontes and I can easily recommend Henry and Chelsey above others.”
~Tamara and Jason Joyce
“Chelsey and Henry are a wonderful team. They've helped us sell 2 homes and buy 3. They know the market and are excellent guides through the process. I can't say enough great things about them!”
~Jeff and Naomi York
“We were referred to Henry and Chelsey by a co-worker and could not have been happier. They were energetic, fun, and extremely knowledgeable. They demystified the entire process and helped us put together a strong offer including giving us the invaluable advice that we know set us apart from the competition. Both were extremely responsive and were always available to us no matter where or when.”
~Eric and Christina Yates
“If you're looking for the best, contact Chelsey and her husband Henry "Ritchie" Samonte = The Samonte Group.
The combination of Chelsey's keen ability to present awesome, useful data to help make a home purchase and get accurate comparable home sales, her amazing infectious personality, flawless faith-based ethics, keen negotiating skills, and overall knowledge and experience of the market is simply unmatched by any other.
Chelsey is enough of a reason to buy or sell your home, but adding the powerhouse partner Henry to The Samonte Group makes the whole experience enjoyable and they are truly a great balanced team! They get you fast responses and results, balanced feedback, and together they make buying or selling a house a barrel of laughs while executing with the precision of a well-engineered, high-performance machine. They are the best duo since Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz (or maybe Beyonce and Jay Z for the current generation)!
I highly recommend Chelsey Samonte!”
“We were referred to Chelsey and Henry by friends and we are so happy we found them! We began our house hunt while living out of state and they helped us each step of the way. They were always very quick to respond to my endless questions regarding neighborhoods, houses, home prices, etc. We were under tight time constraints to find a home and they were always available for showings when we were available. We have already recommended them to several friends and will continue to do so without hesitation. We look forward to working with them in the future!”
~Megan and Andy Payne
“Chelsey is always ready to show a house, even at a moment's notice. Any time we had questions, Chelsey researched and got back to us quickly with answers. Her extensive experience helped to keep us focused and practical, and her creative eye helped us envision possibilities we might not otherwise have considered. Chelsey is a consummate professional, but that being said, I think she enjoyed the house-hunting almost as much as we did! Her enthusiasm for the real estate business makes it a pleasure to work with her and her husband Henry. They make a fantastic team.”
“The real deal! The Samonte Group are honest, trustworthy and hard working realtors. They listen to what you want and strive to find you the perfect home. Can't say enough about them and have referred them to all of our friends and family. Not many people love their realtors, but we do!!!”
~Colin and Karolina Martin
“Chelsey is my go to real estate contact! She is very knowledgable and always goes the extra mile for her clients. She helped my mom list and sell her house. She offered great suggestions. I recommend her wholeheartedly!”
“Chelsey and Henry Samonte were absolute professionals when it came to selling and buying our homes. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for agents that are knowledgeable and experienced in the real estate business.
On our new home, we had to make multiple trips to meet contractors for some work we wanted to do on it prior to moving in and they were always there and willing to help us when we needed them.
Very professional and responsive!!”
