I consider Jeanette to be a good friend, someone
who can be trusted...
I decided to return to the
Pacific NW and found Gig Harbor to be the perfect niche community for my
final home. I began working with a broker in 2014 and was sent listings
of resale homes. Eventually I moved into a rental apartment to provide
me the time I needed to find the right neighborhood in the best
location. I first needed to fine tune my choice of a real estate broker
which is not an easy task.
Fortunately, I received a referral from a wise woman
who suggested Jeanette Wiley, someone who I consider to be the salt of
the earth. Jeanette always listened to me, provided immediate follow-up
answers to my questions, and per my request found a new home being built
within the city of Gig Harbor. Jeanette had a wealth of knowledge per
building protocols, and educated me about the necessary policies and
procedures to be followed during the buying process. (i.e. recommended
an excellent building inspector and mortgage broker).
I consider Jeanette to be a good friend, someone who
can be trusted and garners respect from all who work in the real estate

She is very
knowledgeable of the real estate market in the area
This was the second time
we used Jeanette as our realtor and I consider us fortunate to find her.
10 years ago she found us the perfect house to buy and recently we
picked her to sell that same house.
There are two points I want to make
specifically as to why I would recommend her to anyone buying or selling
a house. First, she is very knowledgeable of the real estate market in
the area. It was very rare for her not to have the immediate answer to
all of our questions. On the occasion she didn’t immediately know the
answer, she always got back to us within the next 24 hours with the
answer. On our initial meeting to sell the house she gave us some ideas
of items to fix based upon our desire to have a good return on the
investment. She spent many hours answering our questions and giving us
confidence the house would sell quickly.
On our meeting just prior to listing she
brought every possible example of comparable houses currently on the
market and those that have recently sold to give us the best information
on how much to list the house for. Once we decided on a price and
listing date, she sent in a very professional photographer to capture
the best aspects of our house. When we saw the listing we were simply
We quickly received multiple acceptable
offers and the hardest part about the whole sale was deciding whom we
were going to sell the house to. Jeanette made the process easy, kept us
informed along the way, and sold our house quickly for the amount we
wanted. Everything we could ever ask for in a house sale.
I highly recommend Jeanette to anyone
that is searching for a new home to put down roots!

||We found our experience with Jeanette to be the
best real estate experience we’ve ever had. She worked diligently
with us for over 3 years, until we found the perfect house to meet
our dreams. Patience and wise counsel are her strong suits. She
would never sacrifice honesty to make a sale. Thank you, Jeanette,
for making our dream come true!"

|We just purchased a new home in the Gig Harbor -
Lakebay area. Jeanette Wiley helped us in many ways, with our
financing and our search for the perfect home. She was always
professional and caring. We enjoyed working with her and would
recommend her to family and friends.

||Moving from California to Gig Harbor was a very
big and stressful move but Jeanette streamlined the process for me
and truly was my personal GPS. She managed the compass and kept me
solid during this very stressful period. She is Very personable and
efficient not to mention extremely patient as I had numerous
questions and concerns.
In addition, her wealth of knowledge of the area
and her local contacts and connections were very instrumental in
paving a smooth path for my move to Gig Harbor. Jeanette Wiley went
above and beyond all my expectations of what a realtor should and
Would I recommend Jeannette? In a heartbeat!

moving into such a nice home. Having you with us every step of the
way was such a comfort and we will always recommend you to others.

||It is a great pleasure to recommend Realtor
Jeannette Wiley of Coldwell Banker Bain. In the last 9 years we have
participated in eight separate real estate transactions. Without a
doubt, Jeannette is the best real estate professional we have had
the privilege of working with.
She is efficient, an excellent communicator, and
always willing to go the extra mile to address our needs and
concerns. Her assistance continued beyond the closing of the sale,
facilitating an effortless transition to our new home.
She possesses the highest ethical standards and
professionalism, always ensuring that we had accurate information
about all the properties we viewed. It has been a pleasure to work
with Jeanette. We will look to her for assistance with our future
real estate needs.

||We went through 3 different agents to sell our
home. All 3 were awful.
Let me save you a lot of time, a lot of grief and a lot of pain.
Jeanette Wiley is a pro. She is no bones, matter of fact get the job
done in record time kind of agent.
She understand the needs and makes things happen. She doesn't make
excuses. Trust me, I have sold many homes in the past decade and she
is my number one pick from here on out.
I know you will understand once you hire her.

on the sale of our house and the purchase of our new condo was much
appreciated. Things progressed smoothly for us with your vast

match for our requirements.

||During the recent sale of our home, Jeanette
served as our agent. She was a pleasure to work with. Her experience
and knowledge made the process run smoothly. We were always well
informed of the progress.
She was always
ready and able to answer our questions and point us in the right
direction. She made a difficult move much more bearable.
- George & Ruth Reilly
|Jeanette Wiley did an excellent job for us. We
live out-of-state, so it was important that we use someone who knew
the business, knew what needed to be done, and took care of it. Who
used good judgment without needing to be hand-held.
Jeanette said she was all of those things, and, I'm
happy to say, she was. She arranged for getting estimates, setting
up repairs, and following up to make sure they had happened as
quoted. I made it clear from the beginning that communication was
important (especially being out-of-state), and she was very good
about that. Those who know me might say that I can be difficult to
please. I think I can be demanding, but I don't think unreasonable.
At any rate, Jeanette was exactly what we were looking for, and we
would definitely use her again.
||As a remote real estate seller in the WA market,
I have been overwhelmingly pleased with Jeanette's work. She
literally took a beaten-up property, hired contractors to fix it,
and even shopped appliances... all on nothing but her commission.
She also made glossy brochures, held open houses,
and worked with a variety of other agents, brokers and even lenders,
right to getting the sale done. This is not only going above and
beyond the call of duty, it is nothing short of stellar.
My heartiest congratulations to her, and my strongest
recommendations to other potential clients.
|“Jeanette handled the sale of our home.
She was attentive, professional and always kept in
touch with us. She was very persistent negotiating with the bank
when she needed to be.
Her negotiating skills were evident. We would
never have gotten through the sale without her!
We would highly recommend her to anyone thinking
of selling or buying”.

||“A short sale is one of the toughest ways to sell
your home, but having a team like Jeanette and Karen backing you
through the entire process is a lifesaver! It took two failed offers
before the third was successful and they were never once
For anyone out there who thinks you could easily do what any realtor
does (as I had originally), you will completely change your mind
after working with these two! They are amazing. I would have gladly
paid them three times as much and I definitely could not have done
it without them.”
Thank you so much Jeanette and Karen
|Let me just start by saying Jeanette is a wonderful person to
work with. Her patience and genuine caring throughout the sales
process was a true testament to how a real estate professional can
make a transaction move through difficulties and challenges.
Jeanette is the kind of person you want working for you. She
communicates continually as the sale move forward and is able to
smooth the bumps along the road to closing.
The best recommendation I can offer is the fact that I would ask her
to be my Realtor again.

||Pam and I wanted to thank you for the service and
support you provided during the recent sale of our home on Fox
Island. As the buyers agent it was obvious to us that your
communication skills between the parties was superior.
Since the buyers were out of area, one key item we
noticed was their trust in you while working on their behalf
throughout the process. This professional level of service made for
a quick, and efficient path to the successful sale and closing of
our home. We appreciate it and would be happy to offer a referral to
any prospective clients.

|We were very pleased with Jeanette's handling of
our recent purchase of a new home. As we are new to the area, we
needed help to find a local mortgage broker and home inspector.
Jeanette had recommendations for both and her
referrals were excellent. She stayed on top of the transaction the
whole way through and she offered solutions for every issue that
She was responsive and courteous throughout and
became our advocate when the title company caused some glitches. She
followed up after everything closed and contacted the former owner
for us when we had questions about some of the systems in the house.
We highly recommend her.

Jeanette & Karen thank you so much for your expertise and
professionalism in handling the sale of our home in Canterwood. You
exceeded our expectations! We couldn’t be more pleased with the way
you communicated with us throughout the process, the marketing was
over the top and in a down market you were able to bring us a buyer
in a short time. Your experience really showed throughout the
process and we couldn’t be more delighted. We have sold other homes
in the past but by far this was the best experience we have ever had
with a real estate professional. We will refer you to all of our
friends and family. JOB WELL DONE!!

Without hesitation, I endorse Jeanette Wiley as a
Real Estate Professional. Jeanette listed our waterfront home and
expertly guided the transaction to a successful close.
I had the
honor of working with Ms. Wiley at CB Bain for several months.
During that period, I developed enormous respect for her abilities.
It has been a privilege to know this brilliant and dedicated Agent.
I fervently endorse her.

showing us homes in a wide area surrounding Gig Harbor.
You were always so diligent in every effort to help us find what we
needed for our family. Thank you for your availability at all times (and
the long hours of house hunting!) and for the way you handled every
aspect of our purchase.
You both made the transition across the state an easy one for us. It was
wonderful to not have to worry about details of the purchase, as you
took care of all of those for us! You are both very kind, positive and
upbeat and have a great understanding of the market in Gig Harbor and
the surrounding area.
We will recommend you highly as knowledgeable and personable agents who
work hard on behalf of their clients.

|We would like to take this opportunity to
thank you for your excellent service and professionalism.
Our home was on the market for 1 year and 4 months with two
previous agents that promised the world and delivered nothing.
We became so frustrated with the lack of results that my wife
spent a substantial amount of time researching possible
replacements for our current agent. After many hours of
research and asking around we came across you and your partner.
Upon listing the home with you we noticed a night and day
difference between you and the others. After just three (3)
months on the market we received a full price offer.

"My husband & I bought a house in Gig Harbor and
sold our house in Southern California, all in the same week. As
out-of-state buyers, Karen & Jeanette handled all aspects of the
transaction for us. We were extremely confident in their
abilities and plan to refer all of our friends and family once
they see the town and decide to follow us! Thanks again, Karen &
