Tenacity is the word I think of when I think of Conor. There needs to be more real estate agents with Conor’s ethics, passion, humor, and diligence. He gets it! I highly recommend Conor to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
I became aware of Conor a year ago. There were homes in our neighborhood that weren't selling, and then there were the homes Conor represented. His homes were properly updated, well-staged, and effectively marketed. They all went quickly, usually the first weekend, and for top prices. In one case, a house had languished for months. The owners eventually took it off the market, then a few weeks later put it back on. It looked like a completely different home, and sold right away. There was Conor's name on the realtor sign. At the time I had Conor over for a chat and realized that his approach to real estate was as sensible and as rare as I had expected after witnessing a few of his successes.

I usually talk with a few different agents before buying or selling a house (I've done each 6 or 7 times), but when we decided to sell our house this year, Conor was the only agent I called. What I like about Conor is that he has a laser focus on you, his customer, and he works tirelessly! So often, realtors work hard to get you to list with them, then go to cruise control, doing little to help. Conor works tirelessly, and pushes to get you to do the things that will help the house to sell quickly and for top dollar. This includes identifying the improvements you should make to your house before selling, staging the house tastefully, and pricing competitively. He definitely considers cost/benefit and doesn't tell you to do anything too ambitious, but gets that the little things count. We had someone repaint most of the inside of house inside and some of the outside, had the landscaping trimmed, and did a few other odds and ends. We also paid to have the house staged nicely. He would make the case for what you needed to do, but if you didn't want to do some of it, he wouldn't get pushy. By doing almost everything Conor recommended, the house was in a great state for selling. We ended up fielding many offers and sold for well above asking price.
I've never written a recommendation for a realtor before, but I was motivated to do so for Conor, of course without his asking. If you want to sell or buy in the Seattle area, Conor is the best I've ever met and I can recommend with no reservations.
