Travis was diligent with keeping us informed about where we were in the process. He almost always answered our questions before we asked. He was able negotiate items into our home that I didn't even think of. He was very good about communicating and checking in with me so I knew how our real estate process was going. I heard back from others that we worked with for our purchase that were equally impressed with his communication. He knew what we wanted and found it for us!
Rob & Shirley W. (Buyers)
We couldn't have asked for a better real estate agent! Our experience with Travis was superb even from our initial phone call. He really took the time to get to know my husband and I, as well as our family. In this tough market (for buyers), Travis was able to educate us, help us understand the reality of certain situations, and provide us with a wide array of homes to look at. He also was able to quickly pick-up our likes and dislikes and really get a good understanding of what we were seeking. We were very impressed with his hard work ethic and really doing his best in researching and negotiating. We've never experienced such great dedication and service; Travis truly went above and beyond expectations. We will always recommend Travis any chance we get and he will be our first call whenever we need real estate services again.

Travis was the perfect agent for us! -He identified early that the house was very much overpriced and knew what the true value was. -Kept us informed throughout the transaction -He kept in constant contact with the listing agent about our interest in the home. Even after they went into contract with another buyer. And in turn this led the seller to come back to us with a price that fit the value. -This was a unique buy, this was the only property that we wanted. Because of that Travis built in extra contingencies in the contract to protect us. -Introduced us to a truly great home inspector. -Travis came up with solutions for last minute hurdles that could have led to a delayed closing/possession date. -Helped overcome difficult sellers that were slow to get out and remove all of their property.
Swamy & Reena G. (Buyers)
Travis was just fantastic! We had decided on another property when we first met up with Travis, but after we talked, he researched and showed us a few other listings that had just come on the market. We ended up buying a property that we never would have found out about without Travis's expertise. He is great to work with and extremely knowledgeable.
Anthony & Claire D. (Sellers)
Travis made this whole process of listing and selling our house easy! Very knowledgeable, always followed through, and has high integrity. I recommend using Travis for any real estate transaction!! If you want it done right, fast, and with the least amount of hiccups he's your guy!!
Jason H. & Taylor G. (Buyers)
"Highly recommend Travis DeFries to anyone looking for a realtor. His attention to detail was phenomenal, as was his communication. Travis went above and beyond for us in our home buying experience. He was able to get us into the home we wanted, and negotiated everything exactly how we wanted it. Being new to the home buying process, there were a lot of unknowns, but Travis made sure to explain and provide all the information needed. His knowledge of the area we were looking in and comparable homes was outstanding. When I decide to buy another home, I will most definitely be using him!"
Kelvin & Christina K. (Buyers)
I usually do not do reviews but I wanted to for our real-estate agent, Travis DeFries. Travis was a huge help in navigating the purchase of our new home. We were in a difficult situation because we were looking for a home in one of the most competitive markets in the area – Bellevue; where investors were pricing us out of the market by paying cash. Travis keep a positive attitude and consistently told us, we’ll find you a new home in Bellevue, and do not give up. After over a year of making several offers and being priced out, we finally found a home which we just closed on. Travis is so consistent and knowledgeable, he does his homework and would send us updates regularly with available homes and stats about the current market value. What I know is that Travis is not looking to sell you a house, it was immediately clear that he wants to help you find your next home. Travis was incredibly flexible and accommodating in scheduling views, we were not the easiest clients; we were tough and he was consistently patient with our changing our minds about offers and always had extra information to provide; he consistently made good working relationships with the selling agent and was able to provide us with helpful information. Also, important to us was the fact that he put absolutely no pressure on us and provided information in an even-handed, non-judgmental manner, and was unfazed by several course-changes in what we were looking for. Bottom line – I can’t imagine having a more positive experience and recommend him without reservation to anyone looking to buy in this stressful and competitive market. He will be our go to guy for any other home search in the future.

Working with Travis DeFries to purchase our home was a wonderful experience. Knowing that he has other clients he was working with, Travis made us feel like we were the only client throughout the entire process. He was very organized and professional when working with us, the seller, and the seller's agent. I have complete trust in Travis and would use him again if or when needed.
Kelli M. (Seller)
Travis was awesome to work with! When I decided to sell my home, I really wanted someone I trusted and someone who knew the area...Travis was exactly this person. From the beginning to the end of the selling process, Travis was professional and knowledgeable. He was patient, and answered ALL of my questions! I listed and sold at a crazy busy time, but I never once felt like I was "just another customer". Travis kept me in the loop the entire time and took the time to make sure I was happy with each decision made and without any pressure. He truly wanted me to do what was best for me. I highly recommend using Travis if you are thinking about selling or purchasing a home. You won't be disappointed!
Kyle & Lori P. (Buyers & Sellers)
When it came to selling our home it was essential to find an agent we could trust and count on to walk us through the process. We couldn't have asked for a better agent than Travis to meet those needs! His knowledge of the market, the time he dedicated to our sale and the overall professionalism he exhibited exceeded our expectations! We highly recommend Travis DeFries!
When you have a hot sellers market, a narrow search area, a "lists of musts" a mile long AND a contingent offer to add to the mix, you better have a great agent, and we did! Travis was patient with us, understood our needs and worked tirelessly to get us into our dream home! We highly recommend him.
Arthur & Susan D. (Sellers)
We've bought and sold several homes, but never had the great experience we had with Travis. He is extremely detailed oriented and involved every step of the way and was always available by phone. There was no job too small for him. He offered to help us in any way as we went through the process of downsizing. He priced our home to sell, carefully and knowledgeably, and it sold in 5 days. We were thrilled. He was with us every step of the way, from the sign going up to turning our keys over. He became a good friend and we highly recommend him.
Kurt & Louise C. (Buyers)
Working with Travis DeFries was simply spectacular. Our success in finding a beautiful home would not have been possible without his hard-work, dedication and willingness to go that extra mile to ensure we found the home we were looking for. Our journey with Travis began about two years ago when we decided we wanted to purchase a property in the Mill Creek/Snohomish/Everett area. We had very specific needs and requirements and Travis did excellent work ensuring all of these were always considered whenever he presented a property to us. He spent a lot of time showing us properties and spent many hours gathering comps for every property we were interested in. Even though our home search took a long time Travis never wavered from his goal of finding us the perfect home. At the end of the day we did indeed find a perfect home and more importantly we now have a great friend in Travis. We highly recommend Travis for all your real estate needs.
Taylor S. (Buyer)
Travis is an amazing realtor! My fiance and I were referred to him by a work friend and we are so happy that we had the chance to work with him to buy a house. He made the process easy and painless, was prompt, available, insightful, and answered our questions with honesty and clarity. Along with his general personable and easy to work with personality, we especially appreciated his attention to detail and investigative nature (which we are sure comes out of his years of being a police officer), which helped to ensure we were paying a reasonable price for the house and that all of paperwork was in order. The buying process was incredibly smooth and straight forward, but I am confident that if we had issues or hiccups, that Travis would have handled them with absolute professionalism and aplomb.
Taryn Z. (Buyer)
Travis is the best realtor I have ever worked with - his attention to detail is second to none, and you always know your best interests are #1 with Travis, whether it be for big or small decisions. He has a keen knack for this industry, which shows in multiple ways throughout the process. It's a relief to have someone managing all the pieces of your transaction who is completely trustworthy. I highly recommend working with Travis!
Jason M. (Seller)
I’ve bought and sold eight homes in the past 15 years and I have used a different agent for each one. Travis is the first agent during this time that I used twice. For each house, he took the time to understand my goals and timeline and then did the research to develop the best marketing and sales plan for that home. Travis managed the process and the communication any way that I needed him too; text, phone call or meet in person. In addition to the things that you expect your agent to do, Travis also did or offered to do the small stuff, like grab the mail. I think this is just who he is and it made a difference to me. As for the results, both homes sold above listing price and under 30 days. Thanks Travis!
Michael & Cynthia E. (Buyers)
Travis is an absolutely great broker, and this is not a compliment we give lightly, particularly since we have worked with other brokers in buying and selling our previous house. We chose him to help us buy a house in Mill Creek, and we had very specific preferences. Travis was highly knowledgeable about the market, exceedingly patient with finding the type of house we wanted, and incredibly prompt in responding to our questions and concerns. We greatly appreciate him in helping us purchase our dream home.
Shane & Julie S. (Sellers)
Travis DeFries was exactly what we needed to help sell our home....a trusted real estate professional. His knowledge and expertise made our transaction go very smooth. I very much appreciated the way he communicated with us throughout the process. He is very thorough and presented us with all of our options so that we could make educated decisions along the way. We recommend Travis very highly. You won't find a more professional realtor out there.
Francisco & Amber D. (Buyers)
Travis is trustworthy and has high integrity, which allowed us to just look at houses and relax. Travis is patient and was able to help us collaborate to decide on what we needed and wanted. We appreciate Travis and will use him again for every transaction we have. He helped us with questions before we were clients.
Bryan & Jentry D. (Buyers & Sellers)
Travis helped us through the arduous process of selling our home of 10 yrs. and purchasing a new house all within a week span. Travis was knowledgeable, focused and realistic with us. Our family has never been happier, Travis DeFries helped make that happen. As an agent and a friend he is of the highest caliber.
Ken & Joanna D. (Buyers & Sellers)
My family went with Travis and his team; they were diligent, honest and knowledgeable. We put our house on the market during a tough time of year, December-January. Travis and his team did their homework and priced us right. He gave us updates frequently and data to back up our listing price point. We had a ton of views/traffic so Travis and his Windermere team did a great job of advertising. He had helpful tips and advice to get the most from our house. The whole process went smooth and Travis is a great with his communication. These are tough times and having a trustworthy agent who communicates well is critical for your piece of mind. We also went with Travis and his team to purchase our new home. I had mentioned to Travis we were thinking of moving a couple of years ago. Travis came by, sat down with us, and created a search engine that would email us listings that met our wish list. There was no pressure, just emails once in awhile that showed new listings. In 18 months of casual looking we saw 2 houses that really interested us. He showed us both within hours of us asking. When the right house popped up, Travis jumped right in and the deal went as smooth as possible. I don't write review,s but with decisions as big and life changing as buying and selling houses I have to give Travis and his team a big thumbs up.
Curtis & Dena Q. (Buyers)
Travis is fantastic! We moved from Texas and had to do the whole process remotely. Travis worked tirelessly to find the right home for us, doing all the walkthroughs and inspections personally for us, always giving an honest opinion of condition of home and neighborhood and never pressuring anything! He was amazing and I would highly recommend him for any of your real estate needs!! Thanks so much Travis!!
John & Erin M. (Sellers)
Travis did an excellent job for us in our house sale. From the very first moment, I felt like we were his only clients. He was responsive, respectful of our timing and attentive to our needs. His knowledge of the market in our area and the proper pricing of our home was spot on. He was also compassionate in recognizing that selling a family home we lived in for 27 years also came with a bit of emotion. Travis gave us the space to prep and, when we were ready, helped us to a final sale that was far, far beyond our expectations. I would recommend him to anyone!
William & Maureen B. (Sellers)
We had a 5-star experience with Travis. During our initial listing discussion, Travis provided some suggestions to address before listing our home; however there was no pressure. Being both a buyer and seller, the suggestions made sense and we moved forward. Well, all the suggestions paid off; our house sold in less than a week, well over asking, and received multiple offers. We needed at least a 45-day closing, and Travis helped facilitate that in the offer. The closing went like clockwork, without any drama. The entire experience was painless, and we could not be happier. So, if you are looking for a professional who has your best interest in mind, is highly ethical, please don't hesitate to contact Travis for a buying your selling needs.
Blythe V. (Buyer)
It was an absolute pleasure working with Travis on my recent home purchase! This is a tough market to be a buyer (especially first time buyer) and my situation was made even harder because I had a very small area I was limited to as I needed to stay in a specific school zone. Inventory was very limited and each house that came on was insanely competitive going for huge amounts over asking. I’d been working with another agent from a non-full service agency for 8 months and it had been a roller coaster ride of unsuccessful offers. I unexpectedly was left without my agent and I knew I wanted to consult Travis as I’d been following him on Facebook for a while and had been impressed with him. I wish I’d made the switch sooner. By the time I started with Travis, I was wondering if I’d been completely priced out of the market in my area but Travis kept encouraging me and within 2 months, I got my house and only slightly over asking! From the get-go, Travis was hands-on, engaged and made it his business to understand exactly what I wanted, needed and what my constraints were. He educated me, was highly responsive and quickly available for showings. He was very pleasant to work with, never made me feel pressurized and gave me guidance when I needed it, every step of the way. I am so thankful to Travis and highly recommend him to anyone in need of an agent as a buyer or seller. Thank so much Travis! 🌟
Carol T. & Bob D.
We made the difficult decision to sell my wife’s childhood home, Travis understood and helped to make everything go as easy as possible. He kept us up on values in the area and improvements we could make to help make the house more attractive to a buyer. He was always available to answer any questions. We appreciate everything he did to make this process as painless as it could be and we are very glad now that it’s done that we chose him to get us where we are. I will recommend him to anyone I know that might be looking for a real estate agent. Thank you very much Travis!
