Joe and Jason were so helpful in helping us buy our first home.

It felt so good having realtors that we could trust. They were great at communicating with us every step of the way. Having both of them on our team meant we could always get our questions answered. I’d most definitely contact them again for our real estate needs.

Joe and Jason are the best agents you could hire.

They will be with you every single step of the way, going way above and beyond what anyone else would. We were both buying and selling. They managed everything smoothly and kept our stress as low as possible. Also, they communicate very well, responding to text, emails, and phone calls as fast as possible.

Home Seller

The Madrona Group, Joe Kiser and Jason Fox, of John L.

Scott Real Estate were amazing to work with! We decided to sell our Lynnwood home in order to build our retirement dream home near Leavenworth. It was a huge decision for us. Joe and Jason put us at ease. They worked hard at marketing our house with a beautiful write up, professional photos, video walk through, complete social media marketing, and an open house. 3 days after it went on the market we had an offer that was $25,000 over asking price. They advised us not to accept it and explained why in a manner that was easy to understand. The next day a bidding war ensued and we ended up getting $90,000 over asking! We put our trust in Joe and Jason and it paid off big time!!! This is going to help so much in setting us up for retirement and our golden years. We can’t thank them enough for all their hard work and expertise.

Brenda and Deryl King

He found a home that fit our needs, wants and budget. He’s also a really great guy. Could not recommend him more!

Katie Dunsmoor- Langley

Joe Kiser helped us find an amazing home in our neighborhood in Seattle in our price range.

He’s a real estate magician and a class act.

Kellie Hoiland

I was thrilled working with Joe, he was a problem solver to say the very least.

Joe and his team would always be prepared to face anything that came up in the process and, as a first time homebuyer, I was thrilled to have such a strong advocate and great negotiator with us through this whole process. If you’re looking for a realtor, this is your guy!

Home Buyer

Joe and Jason were amazing through the entire process!

They both worked hard at helping us locate our forever home. They spent hours driving through Bothell, Lynnwood, Everett and Maltby. Joe came to let us into a property at 7 in the evening, it had only been on the market for 3 hours. This was the house we were looking for. Joe sent in an offer late at night on our behalf and the seller accepted. He moved fast, worked late and helped us to secure our dream home in Medowdale! We both highly recommend The Madrona Group!

Sherry and Phil Showstead

Jason and Joe are not you’re average real estate agents.

After being referred to them by a friend we were extremely pleased to find that they were every bit as friendly, hard working and talented as we had been told. They went above and beyond to help us find a house we loved and did not stop until we got that house. Our offer was outbid but through Joe and Jason’s efforts the seller accepted our offer instead and we are now the proud owners of our first home! These guys are excellent at what they do!

Beau Burdick

Both professional and fun to work with.

He was patient and motivating during the shopping process and thorough with explaining the paperwork. My new home far exceeded my expectations while staying within my budget. Thank you Joe. Im so proud of my new little home!

I want to Thank Jason & Joe for their outstanding help and professionalism on my condo purchase. After being told I couldn’t get a conventional loan, they came through with getting me exactly what I wanted. Thanks again guys and keep up the good work!

We selected Joe and Jason after interviewing 5 agents in total.

They were the most prepared for the interview and handled our sale masterfully. The staging was perfect, and our sale was pending in 2 days. We will definitely contact Joe and Jason for our future real estate needs and highly recommend them to anyone in need of their services.

Lee & Cyndi Fortier

Our home purchase was tricky as someone else had already made an offer.

Joe knows the business and encouraged us to make an offer as well. He knew exactly what to do and our offer was accepted. So exciting! Thanks Jason and Joe for your hard work to help our family get the home we needed. I am serious when I say I will refer you to anyone I know who is looking to purchase/sell a home!

April Mayes

I never thought buying a house would be so easy!

Jason and Joe make a great team and they made this transition seem so seemless. As a mother, I was worried about how my kids would be during the house hunting process, however Joe and Jason made it so easy and were so patient and kind with our children that they absolutely loved them. Thank you so much Jason and Joe! We would definitely work with them again!!

Jamie and Chris Whitman

I had a blast with Joe and Jason!

They made our first home buying experience easy and simple. I couldn’t have asked for better people to help us with this. I would use them to sell and buy another home or to anyone that is in need to find people that care and listen to what your looking for.

Jason and Joe are an incredible team, we recommend them to everyone!

My husband and I were able to buy our first house with their help even after we were out bid. We couldn’t have done it without them. They were not only knowledgeable when it came to buying a home, but kind and patience with us as we learned about the process! Can’t thank them enough :)

An absolute spectacular team, Joe and Jason did a wonderful job taking care of our needs.

They went above and beyond to ensure our sale was competitive and fast. Anytime a question arose they were available to answer. Joe and Jason also took great care at helping us find or next home after the sale. They excelled at helping us focus on what we were looking for and what to expect in a sellers market. We were able to get the perfect home using our VA loan. if you have the chance to work with this awesome team you will not be dissapointed. Thank you Joe and Jason for making our dream a reality.

Chris and Angela Linville

I listed my townhouse with Joe and Jason from the Madrona Group.

At our initial meeting they explained the process and how we would proceed. I was impressed with the presentation and the research they had done on homes in my area and my home in particular. I felt very comfortable working with them. My home sold quickly and for full price. I would definitely and have recommended Joe Kiser to friends and family.

Nancy Johnson

Jason and Joe put together great ideas for marketing the sale of our house.

They were very hands on throughout the entire sale process. Their calm demeanor and real estate knowledge was very much appreciated.

Lynn Merrihew

First home we looked at is the one we wanted, unfortunately it went pending before we could put an offer on it.

We kept looking, no problems. House was no longer pending that we originally wanted and we were able to put an offer on it and it was meant to be. Stress free.

Sylvia Darwood

Joe Kiser helped me buy and sell our home.

It was very time sensitive for us and Joe made it happen smoothly . He was on top of it every step of the way. I would refer him to anyone.

Home Seller

Joe and Jason went out of their way to find us the right house and walk us through the whole process.

In an extremely tight market Joe was able to get our offer accepted over 8 other offers. I highly recommend them for all your home buying and selling needs. They go the extra mile and you won’t be disappointed!

Brandt and April Warstler

One year ago we started the process toward home ownership and we did that with the help of Joe and Jason.

This was our first and these two were so great in helping us understand the process and navigate the market. They listened. They were transparent. They were proactive, as that was the state of the market when we purchased. They were available to us every step of the way. I am grateful to them for their part in helping us establish our home. I may be delayed in writing this review for them – but the impact of working with them did not stop when the handed us the keys. I was thankful when we closed, I am thankful to them now, and I will probably continue to say thanks when I get to thinking about the memories we are creating in this home of ours. Can’t recommend them enough!

Sana Sierra

We worked with Madrona group to help us find a new home for our family.

It was my first time purchasing a home (my wife was already a homeowner) and the team was incredibly helpful and informative. I really felt that we had an advocate through the whole process and every time I had a question, concern, or even something I didn’t understand they would get me whatever I needed. Overall they went above and beyond and I would happily recommend them to anyone looking to purchase a home.

Jeremy Holmes

We won!

Outbid by 15k and less than perfect qualifications, Joe and Jason really pulled out all the stops and got us the into the home we wanted. First house, first bid, and offer accepted! . Simply amazing work by the Madrona group! Thanks guys! The Selby family

Curt and Heather Selby

I have got to see a few agents in my day and rarely have I seen one with Joe’s passion and negotiating skills.

Don’t think twice about working with such a great agent!

Home Buyer

I want to Thank Jason & Joe for their outstanding help and professionalism on my condo purchase.

After being told I couldn’t get a conventional loan, they came through with getting me exactly what I wanted. Thanks again guys and keep up the good work!

Susan Sanfratella

Joe & Jason are simply the BEST in the business!

They answered every one of my frantic texts, emails, and phone calls day and night. Selling and buying a home is very stressful, they helped my anxiety by talking me through every scenario. My rental condo was in terrible shape after the tenants moved out, Joe & Jason have so many connections with their help the condo was market ready and sold within a month for above asking!

Christy Wise

He is a financial wiz.

He was able to let me know pretty close what my walk away amount was. He kept me in the loop all through the process. When my first buyer walked away he quickly resold it the same day. He is top knotch.

Diane Trabont

Joe was excellent to work with in helping my husband and myself purchase a new home in Bothell recently.

He was knowledgeable of the area, negotiated a final purchase price below the listed price and followed up at every step of the process. We will highly recommend Joe to all of our family and friends and use him in the future. Thanks Joe!

Courtney Blankenship

The Madrona Group helped me sell my condo and were great to work with.

They were very professional and listened to my questions and concerns. They explained the process to me and everything went very smoothly. I couldn’t have been more pleased. I highly recommend Joe and Jason and The Madrona Group to anyone who wants realtors who are true professionals and have genuine appreciation and concern for their clients. You won’t be disappointed!

Jana Wood

My family decided to get a 2nd opinion/market evaluation on my mothers condominium in Edmonds.

We are using a family realtor but decided to hire Joe to double check the value since the market is improving steadily. What Joe showed us, and recommended in comparison to other local condos helped us decide to increase the asking price by $35,000. He was quick to respond to our requests and very clear when communicating with my family. His enthusiasm and professionalism was much appreciated.Thank you Joe!!

Mike McCormick

I just completed buying my retirement home through Joe and Jason of The Madrona Group through John L Scott.

This is the second real estate transaction I’ve completed with these two gentlemen. You can’t ask for a more responsive and productive agents. I can’t emphasis enough how well you will be treated and how hard these two work for you.

Marti Baker

Joe and Jason are true professionals.

If you want to sell or buy a home, I suggest you contact them. I am a very experienced buyer and have never had a deal go through as smoothly as my condo purchase. They found me the condo I wanted, in the area I wanted, and negotiated a price I could afford.
