Lorna Jean was a knowledgable resource and was enthusiastic and energetic in assisting us in buying a house. She was helpful in many ways that went beyond the usual nuts and bolts of buying a home.

Lorna Jean is awesome! She is personalized, attentive and responsive. Lorna Jean also provided information on important details we did not know, as well as offering creative solutions. Really great ideas, both for the process of purchase, and for improvements to our new home.

Doing this (purchase and settlement) from the east coast was not easy for us. Lorna Jean was responsive and went out of her way to be available in the limited time we had on Bainbridge while visiting our daughter. Once we purchased, she helped with the details at a distance. Lorna Jean made it as easy as it could be under the circumstances. Good work!

Lorna Jean is a friend who encouraged us to down-size to a condo, which we were able to purchase before we sold our house. Lorna Jean made use see through all the obstacles. Without her tremendous energy and positive “can do” attitude, things would not have happened the way they did. She continually kept us informed, followed-up promptly, answered our questions and kept us amazed when she prepared our home for the market by using unique staging materials and professional photographs.
Lorna Jean goes over every single detail, item by item, on a listing or a sales contract. She's a meticulous expert real estate broker. She will protect you in that manner. She's also really nice to deal with when you're going through a time of change. Everyone, buyer or seller, handles that differently and Lorna Jean stays calm and keeps the deal going. Just a delight to deal with.
I retained the services of Lorna Jean Giger to purchase a home on Bainbridge Island at a very suitable price. This home has totally met my needs and wants and I'm very grateful I used her services. After purchasing this home and getting settled in, I used Lorna Jean's services to sell the home I was in. It was a complicated sale to a complicated buyer but it all came together in a very nice way. Lorna Jean is very professional and quick to respond to my questions even when she was out of the area on a trip. She staged the home we sold very nicely and left nothing to chance. I highly recommend Lorna Jean and will use her services any time I have a real estate transaction, or question in the future. Her knowledge of the locales and other service providers is outstanding.

Superb knowledge and expertise in the Bainbridge Island real estate market. After 2 frustrating years working with another island reality firm we were fortunate to have found Lorna Jean Giger. She listened to what we desired in a home and showed us homes within our price range that had the features we most desired. In less than a month working with Lorna Jean we did what many said would be impossible. We purchased an island home well under the listed price with a zero down VA loan. Lorna Jean Giger is a rock star agent that we highly recommend to anyone.
"Lorna Jean helped us find just the right house. She introduced us to a listing that was not on our radar. Lorna Jean has a deep understanding of the local market. She worked in partnership with us to design the right offer. She gave professional input that made for a successful proposal. Purchasing a house can be daunting at times, but the process never was with Lorna Jean. She was diligent in her communications, knowledgeable, and an expert with great resources. We always knew what was happening with all parties. She even kept lenders engaged, on track, and focused allowing for competitive lending offers. Our experience of working with Lorna Jean made for an enjoyable, exciting, efficient, and effective purchase of the home we now love."

My wife and I made the decision to relocate from West Seattle to Bainbridge Island about a year ago. We met Lorna Jean at an open house last fall and after that initial meeting decided she would be the person we would want representing us in our search. After spending time with us and developing an understanding of what we were looking for in a house she spent a number of months working with us until she found what I would say is as close to a perfect fit as you could achieve. We very much appreciated her detailed knowledge of Bainbridge Island and the North Kitsap real estate market. Her guidance through the entire process and her infinite patience with a couple who were probably on the anxious side given this was our second home purchase in 32 years. She always responded to our questions quickly and we felt like we were her one and only client. We are now lucky residents of Bainbridge Island and would highly recommend Lorna Jean. The additional positive is that you also make a good friend during a very stressful process.

Now that we have managed to put, throw or give away what was left over from consolidating two large houses, I have the time to thank Lorna Jean for all the help she gave us in getting out of our home on such short notice. We could not have done it without her! Our special thanks to her valuable and good-natured family, Eli and Tim, who help make her team so valuable. In our previous house selling/moving experiences (well over a dozen in 50 years), the primary value of having a good realtor was in the selling of the home. While Lorna Jean certainly made that part of it short and painless for us, it was only in the latter stages of the move that her unique skills and assurances became critical to the completion of the sale. This was a part of her services that were not hitherto apparent to us but turned out to be the most valuable in this instance, for which we are most grateful. I am happy to write a testimonial for you since few sellers are aware of the unique and necessary services that you can provide in the critical final days of a move.

Lorna Jean Giger and Windermere represented us on both the purchase and sale of our home. We received the utmost professional care and excellent preparedness prior to going on the market. We can’t think of anything that could have been done better - everything to closing was smooth. We would recommend Lorna Jean for her patience, knowledge and dedication to her clients.
