Below is a glimpse of what it’s like to work with me through the eyes of the amazing people I get to represent. I truly enjoy helping the people I grow to know and love find the perfect home or find the perfect replacement family for the home they worked so hard to build a life in this ever-changing competitive real estate market.
“We are so grateful we were paired with you for our house hunt. I was told buying a house is one of the most stressful events one experiences in life. I, however, cannot relate to that sentiment and truly believe that is due to you. Your ability to think of everything we didn’t even know we needed allowed us to concentrate on our transition to Washington State. We are so happy with our new home and thank you for holding our hand along the way.” – Steve and Jo Saxon
“When we decided to sell our home in Yarrow Point, we wanted our real estate agent to know the market and craft a great sales plan. In Anastasia Miles, we got all of that and much more.
Anastasia is client-focused, proactive, and thorough. She based her marketing plan and pricing on broad data as well as a deep understanding of the neighborhood and likely buyers. She knew exactly how to prepare the house for showing, and she provided just the right props to make the place pop. When inquiries came in following her well advertised and very popular open house showings, she deftly handled them. Due to her great work, we received multiple offers and were under contract within a week.
Throughout the process, Anastasia guided us, kept us informed, and worked proactively on our behalf. Best of all and in addition to her professional prowess, Anastasia is a warm and caring person of good sense, good humor, and high integrity. We recommend her highly.” – Mark and Linda

“We can not say enough great things about Anastasia! We have been working with her for about 3 months and it has been such a pleasure. Other REALTORS® that we have worked with in the past have been hard to get a hold of, slow at email response and just slow to get us answers needed when purchasing a home. Anastasia consistently responds to emails immediately, answers calls and returns calls quickly. On top of being a great REALTOR®, her personality just adds to the package of being an all around great person. We highly recommend working with her, she truly is one of the best in Bellevue!”

“We couldn’t be happier with our decision to work with Anastasia in the purchase of our new home. Anastasia provided lightning-quick responses to any questions or requests. She communicated exceptionally well and kept us in the loop every step of the way. Her professionalism, follow thru and attention to detail are exactly what we were hoping for in an agent. We’ve worked with numerous agents over the years and the experience with Anastasia was by far the most enjoyable and stress-free we’ve had. We’ll wholeheartedly recommend Anastasia to family and friends.”

“Anastasia Miles is a true professional whom I’m very happy to have worked with and would highly recommend her. She was incredibly good natured and tireless in her willingness and desire to help us us find just the right home. We were buying in a “hot sellers” market and she immediately tracked down all of the information that we needed, returned each and every email, phone call, question. If we thought the house had potential she would go look at it first and give us a call. Anastasia is an incredibly responsive and professional agent. As we worked towards closing, Anastasia was, at all times, up to speed on the status of our loan, working closely with the lender to avoid any possible delays. She stayed in close contact with the seller’s agent, oftentimes gently prompting the other agent to take care of their business as well. The other agent in our case needed a lot of help and she helped and guided them daily. We did a 30 day close so everything had to be completed in a timely matter. It’s so refreshing to work with someone who makes purchasing a home so effortless. In summary she is an absolute professional through every step of the process. She is beyond generous with her time in finding the right property and incredibly knowledgeable about the market. I would highly recommend Anastasia to family and friends who are looking to purchase or sell their real estate. Thanks Anastasia.”

“Saying that we were pleased with the performance of Anastasia Miles, would be an understatement. Anastasia went out of her way and over the top for us starting months before we actually listed our home, which incidentally resulted in a bullet proof contract within 3 days of listing, that was almost 10% over our asking price! – a price that many other brokers thought was already too aggressive.
Beginning some months before they formally listed our home, Anastasia spent hours with us in the role of marketing consultants helping us plan and execute our plans to assure that the final “product” that would hit the market in the early spring, would bring us the maximum possible return. I say return and not price because our plan included new landscape and small construction projects which we all agreed were needed to optimize the value (i.e. return) that we could expect from our target market – which they clearly defined for us. In fact, Anastasia actually took us around our wider neighborhood looking at competitive properties to help us see our home, now the product, as a potential buyer would – greatly helping us identify and justify required upfront investments to ready our home for maximum market success.
Anastasia actually sat in on all the key strategy meetings we had with our landscape architect, stager, etc. who were all excellent professionals and ones they incidentally recommended to us – an incredible value in and of itself. Each step in the process to prepare our “product” for market, they provided invaluable insights to us and the professionals we were working with assuring that we did all that was necessary to ready our product, but not more than would add value. And as we reached the final days before our listing date, they recommended excellent workers who charged fair prices to clean and prep our home. Wow did this help make life easier at this stressful, final stage in the process! Going into this, we had no idea how much work all this would be. Looking back, I have no idea how we could have done it all without their constant support and just in time support whenever we needed something. (Oh, and might I add her “gentle” (maybe a bit stronger word is more accurate!) nudging…. to keep us going when we were weary!)
In parallel to supporting us to ready our product, she was aggressively prepping the market. As we neared our listing date, she worked her network of REALTORS® with a vengeance to create demand that would be pent-up by the time we actually listed our product – a process of many phone calls, personal meetings, emails, receptions, tours of our home…. Bottom line – she worked her tail off, and did so very effectively!
Based on the incredibly positive reception we got from the market, resulting in an air tight contract, almost 10% over our asking price, just 3 days after listing, is testament to all the front loaded planning and preparation that Anastasia put into the marketing and sales of our product.
Please note that some may say that our sale was fast because the market was hot and any could agent could have done so well. Two words come to mind beginning with B and S. As marketing and sales professionals ourselves, with many years of experience with Microsoft and other top tier organizations, my wife Theresa and I know talent and effective planning and execution when we see it. Also, the market wasn’t so hot when we started this process. In fact, just weeks before we listed, it was nothing liked we had hoped and we were highly concerned we would not get the price we needed. In many ways, the success that Anastasia had with our home actually established a new value level and ignited the Capitol Hill Market.
If you have any questions, please call my wife Theresa or I. We give Anastasia our highest recommendation and stand by every word we have written.”

“I listed my condo with Anastasia and she worked diligently with the buyer’s agent and the escrow company to close the sale in spite of challenges beyond our control. Her professional and patient approach while dealing with a variety of personalities is greatly appreciated. Anastasia also worked tirelessly with me to find the absolutely perfect condo for me to purchase. Since it was a short sale, Anastasia once again exercised a patient, professional approach to all the details. I would highly recommend Anastasia to family and friends who are looking to purchase or sell their real estate. Thanks Anastasia.”

“We’ve just closed our second home purchase with Anastasia and once again, she exceeded every expectation! We’d been searching for the perfect second home for a number of years & finally located just the right one. Anastasia spent countless hours in the car with me, searching for ‘the one’ and gave sage advice about different properties. She was incredibly good natured and tireless in her willingness and desire to help us us find just the right home.
When we did find our home, there were a number of questions to which the sellers and their agent couldn’t find answers. Anastasia was quick to do her homework, pick up the phone, and track down the needed information herself. The sale could have easily gone sideways if Anastasia hadn’t been so proactive in answer our questions & helping resolve our concerns.
I’ve purchased numerous homes throughout my lifetime and in al those purchases I’ve never worked with a more responsive or professional agent. As we worked towards closing, Anastasia was, at all times, up to speed on the status of our loan, working closely with the lender to avoid any possible delays. She stayed in close contact with the seller’s agent, oftentimes gently prompting the other agent to take care of their business as well. By the time I’d get to read an email requesting something of me, Anastasia had already responded to It, providing them with everything they needed. It’s so refreshing to work with someone who makes purchasing a home so effortless.
We’ll be lifelong clients and wouldn’t dream of using anyone else for any real estate needs. Both times I’ve worked with Anastasia the purchases have gone smoothly and quickly, due largely to Anastasia’s responsiveness and attention to detail. She’s a true professional who obviously has a great passion for her profession.
We’ve bought two homes through Anastasia & I can’t say enough good things about her. She is an absolute professional through every step of the process. She is beyond generous with her time in finding the right property and incredibly knowledgeable about the market. When it came time to make offers, she aggressively (in a good way) represented us, and gave sage, balanced advice. Anastasia is very detail oriented and just takes care of business throughout the process! The two transactions we’ve completed with Anastasia have, far & away, been the smoothest, most professional and most enjoyable of any of our sales or purchases. Thank you Anastasia!
Anastasia was great to work with – she managed to set everything up around painting/repairs, new flooring, staging, and scheduling of an open house while I was on a business trip (a short business trip, at that!)
Her recommendations were spot on re: the market and she negotiated the terms of a sale that were favorable – so much so that we were able to close on the sale in less than 1 month.
Anastasia has been helping my husband and I in our search for our first home. She is so kind and responsive and is making this scary process not scary at all!! We are excited to continue working with her and cannot recommend her enough.
Anastasia has tirelessly searched for a property that suits my very specific requirements. She has been diligent, responsive and sensitive to my needs.
The search continues, so I am unable to comment on her negotiation skills.
Anastasia was extremely easy to work with and coordinated the process for the staging of the property while I was out of town. Although Anastasia is a REALTOR®, when you work with her you truly get a project manager, general contractor, deal negotiator, communications specialist, and mediator all in one very professional package!”
