The Zehm Team Difference

The Aaron and Karen Zehm “Get it Done Right” Difference

Aaron and Karen Zehm put their hearts, combined brainpower and even elbow grease into finding best solutions for buyers and sellers. Real Estate Done Right means:

Shoulder to the wheel – To stage a home Aaron has helped sellers repair sheetrock, paint interiors and dig out crawl spaces. Karen has quietly and efficiently scrubbed clients’ homes to make inspection. Their truck is always available for trips to the dump.  

Twice the Energy – It’s Saturday and a relocating client wants to see a dozen comparable homes on the Eastside. No problem, one of them will clear the decks to care for the client’s needs.

Two for the Price of One – Clients get two very experienced, different and complementary agents working the solutions. Aaron is calm, a great listener, good with the details and market trends. Karen is more outgoing, equally knowledgeable, patient and an awesome contract writer.  

Family First – At home in Bothell, the Zehm’s focus is on raising their daughters. They understand how important it is for clients to find the perfect home in which to raise their families. Karen actively volunteers at her children’s schools, church and running group.   

Return Clients Become Friends – Due to their “can do” ethic, most of the Zehm’s business comes from repeat clients and referrals. Many clients have become lasting friends and acquaintances and use the Zehms as both their seller and buyer agent team.

Educate the Client – Part of the Zehm’s success relates to their ability to communicate with and educate clients to the real estate process. As a result, there are no surprises.

Enormous Resources – When it comes time to find a lender, most agents work with only a handful of institutions. Aaron and Karen work with more than a dozen bankers and lenders and cultivate this network to make the deal happen. 

Honesty and Trust Your Gut – If a house isn’t right, the Zehms will tell the client. They have foregone commissions in order to counsel clients to follow their gut and keep looking. They are confident that with more hard work, even knocking on doors, they will find the perfect home.
