Igor believes that buyers still have exceptional opportunities in today’s real estate market. He helps buyers capitalize on opportunities in the current market and guides them through the entire buying process – from the first visit of a house to closing day and beyond. Igor supports buying clients through gathering information about the home they’d like, helping to prepare an offer, negotiating a price as needed, providing education about the building process and materials, helping with inspections and assisting clients with escrow and title companies.
For sellers, Igor knows it’s crucial to understand the current market conditions to ensure the sale is effective as possible. He helps each seller prepare their home for the market through establishing the right price for the property and implementing an innovative marketing plan. His approach ensures each listing gains maximum exposure and ends in a successful sale.
Redmond, Washington, is probably best known as the home of Microsoft. But if that’s all you know about our gem of a city, you’re missing a lot. Marymoor Park, which hosts concerts in the summer, also features a climbing rock, sports fields, a cricket pitch, a huge off-leash dog park, tennis courts, a community garden and an outdoor theater. Redmond is also home to more than 17 miles of hiking and biking trails. Known as the bicycle capitol of the Northwest, Redmond is home to the state’s only velodrome and each July, the city hosts a bike race around Lake Sammamish. This race is part of Redmond Derby Days, which also includes a parade, live entertainment, a carnival with rides, and fireworks at dusk. The top-notch schools in Redmond draw a lot of families to our community. And our library is world-class, the second largest in the King County Library System. Redmond itself is home to restaurants, breweries and shopping to rival any major city, but if you are craving the bustle, both Seattle and Bellevue are a few minutes away. Though one visit to the outdoor mall called Redmond Town Center may convince you you never need to leave the city again. If you are interested in learning more about Redmond, let us know. We’d love to show you around and help you find your perfect home.
