Jef, Now that we have closed on the Kamilche Point property, I just wanted to send you a note to tell you how much I appreciate all of your help. I have to admit, being from out of state, I was a bit apprehensive about buying property in an area with which I was not familiar. Your knowledge and willingness to answer all of my questions (even the dumb ones) made the entire process so much easier than I expected. Your professionalism and courtesy helped me to feel completely comfortable in buying this property, and made our business dealings a pleasure.
I hope to meet you in person the next time I'm in Washington.

Hi Andy, This is a very belated thank you to you and your team for the terrific work in helping us sell the house in Shelton. You made what could have been a very stressful process a positive one, answering our questions and recommending solutions in such a timely manner. Thank you for the professional guidance and the attention to our family's needs.
It was a pleasure working with you!
Sincerely, Megan Knapp
Thanks Jef. I also want to thank you for your extraordinary efforts in the sale of our Harstine property. As one who regularly works with brokers and listing agents, it is not often that I find someone as diligent, hardworking, and knowledgeable as you have been with respect to this property. You were outstanding. Thanks again.

Thank you so much for everything you did to help us make our dream of owning a waterfront home a reality! Your services were first rate in every way. We sincerely appreciate your attention to every detail as we went through the inspection process, negotiations with the seller, financing, and closing. We will recommend you to anyone we know who is looking for waterfront in Mason or Thurston County.
Thank you also for the wonderful book you sent us. We are thoroughly enjoying it!
~ Keith and Keri Sullivan
As you know we have had the pleasure of working with you on a few occasions in the past. It's not often that I am so impressed by someone's performance that I write about it but in this case I think I should. When we listed our first home for sale with you, we had no idea what to do and your ability to generate trust, personal commitment, and experience were obvious and impressive. When it came time to sell our second home we undoubtedly listed with you and once again your patience, persistence, and dedication were the reasons we were able to find a buyer and quickly sell our home.
You are an absolute asset to any home buyer or seller. You did a great job for us and of course we found a good friend in the process. It goes without saying that we will look to you for help again in the future. Until then I assure you we will continue to recommend you to all of our friends and colleagues.

To whom it may concern:
I recently sold my house on Harstine Island. Prior to listing it, a friend advised me to contact Jef Conklin as a possible broker. Having no other such leads, and being a Seattle resident, I called Jef and met with him the following weekend on the island. From the moment he introduced himself, I knew he was the perfect choice. His personality and knowledge assured me that I need look no further.
The sale went smoothly, despite a few stumbling points, which Jef managed to resolve with a few phone calls. I was in France for the last four weeks of the escrow period and Jef dealt with the remaining issues by phone, which was impressive and allowed me to enjoy my time abroad fully.
I would recommend Jef Conklin to anyone in need of a knowledgeablem thoughtful and congenial real estate agent.
You guys are great! What a wonderful job you've done.
On behalf of Bea and myself, we would like to thank you and your team for your outstanding services rendered in the purchase of our Harstine property! From our first meeting I was impressed with your professionalism and knowledge! Whenever I asked for information it was always provided in a speedy way. We always felt you listened to our wishes and acted accordingly! When the right property appeared we were immediately contacted and the property was purchased! You always gave us good advice and protected our interests! You have a good ability to ¿Cut to the chase¿ and not waste a lot of time and energy! Thank you again! We look forward to having good times on Harstine Island!
I am writing to commend the professional services of Jef Conklin, Associate Broker. In 2002 my husband David Mackey and I bought land (directly from the owner) near Shelton thinking we would build a home. When we changed our plans in 2004, we asked Jef to list the property for us. In little over six months his good work had sold the property at considerable benefit to us.
It is significant to note that this was a complicated sale. The property had extremely irregular boundaries which had not been well marked, and one boundary line had been contested. Jef had to ensure that all these issues were resolved. Furthermore, because the property was essentially unimproved, Jef had to arrange some clearing of brush just in order for potential buyers to get into the site.
Jef was enthusiastic and confident that the property would sell, and he was right. He and his team (Andy Conklin and Jamie Gwynne) worked with us from out of state to ensure that all details were taken care of. We are more than satisfied with his excellent and professional work.

Three years ago my wife Sandra Herndon and I made our initial contact with Jef Conklin, Associate Broker, via the Windermere web site. Through Jef's enthusiasm, recommendations, tireless communication responding to our endless questions and his life-long knowledge of the Shelton area, we shifted out future- home search from Thurston County to the Shelton area. This change to the Shelton area has proven ideal for us in matching our life style, community values and real estate values.
Jef and his team have been instrumental in the success of our search and finally our recent purchase of 6170 W. Skokomish Valley Road. During the course of our purchase process it was through Jef's trade and legal knowledge, his tireless coordination activities and his personal skills, that helped resolve deal-breaking boundary issues that surfaced. Jef invented solutions where none seemed possible.
Now, with all the issues resolved, transactions duly recorded and ownership in place, we say "Thank you, Jef and Andy Conklin and Jamie Gywnne, for having faith in us as buyers from the northeast anxious to move to our new home in the northwest in July, 2005."
I just want to thank you for staying with us and doing so much to help settle our case. We couldn't have done it without your help and the help from Stephen.
Thank you so much, I really appreciate it.
Dear Jef, Andy, Jamie and Staff,
Thank you so much for all you've done for us. You made it so easy and painless to start our dreams to come true. We are so excited to be there and have our horses in our own backyard and have a beautiful home on a very beautiful 20 acres.
You all have been honest and helpful and not get us over our heads in an unrealistic deal. We can't hardly wait to move in and enjoy some nice weather, and have my family close by, This will be our home forever and you have made it possible for us. Thank you so much from two long time Alaskans who are looking forward to living in Shelton.

Sara and I would like to thank you for the superb manner in which you managed the sale of our cabin at Kamilche Shores in Mason County earlier this year.
We were impressed that you took the time to answer all our questions and that you also dealt with the many things that came up no matter how small the issue may have been. We were also very pleased that you were able to anticipate the many things that happen when property is being sold. As you know we had some special things that needed to be done prior to the sale and you were able to locate the right person to take care of each of the situations that arose. The most important thing to us was that whenever we had a question you responded immediately and you provided a quality of customer service that is unrivaled.
I would be remiss if I did not mention the great support we received from the other members of your team. Jamie Gwynne and Andy Conklin provided a level of assistance that was exceptional and is rare in the world of business today.
Thanks again for the great support and service. Hopefully we can work together in the future. I will recommend you and your great team to other people I know that are interested in buying property in the South Sound.

Dear Jef and Andy,
I am just writing to tell you how pleased I was with the very professional service you provided for me when on two occasions I listed my property with you.
In both instances my property was sold in a very short period of time, with you tending to every detail.
Then, when I needed a place to move into quickly, you seemed to have an unusual ability to know exactly what I needed and you were able to find something that was just right and that was immediately available.
Thank you so much for your guidance, your attention to important details and your concern for my needs.
Jef and Andy,
We would like to thank you for the exemplary way in which you handled our recent lot purchase. We were very impressed by your professionalism, follow through, and dedication. Even though the purchase was for a small amount, we felt that you treated the transaction with the same attention to detail that you would bring to larger purchases.
We also appreciated the support of Jamie, the other Windermere staff, and the Mason County Title Company escrow personnel. Thanks to everyone's efforts, the transaction was practically stress-free for us.
Jef, your knowledge of the Shelton area and Hartstene Pointe was invaluable in helping us reach a decision to purchase our lot. We are very excited to begin construction.
Thanks again to all of you for a very pleasurable, professional buying experience.
Jim Segaar and Jeff Harder
