Staying Current With Market Trends & Education are Key
"Rebecca helped us buy a complicated property that required a lot of evaluation by experts before we were comfortable that we could make it work. Rebecca had all of the resources we needed at her fingertips, and worked through the process with us in an upbeat manner. She was also able to negotiate behind the scenes to get us past an administrative hurdle with the bank that threatened to end the deal. Throughout, Rebecca was responsive and flexible and really great to work with. We happily recommend her to other buyers."
Laura & Justin G
"You can’t go wrong selecting Rebecca Robinson as your realtor. We are a young family who relocated to the island and she helped us get an amazing deal on a beautiful home. She not only helped us find the perfect house she introduced us to the community. When we needed to relocate she guided us through the whole sale process making it less stressful and again going above and beyond to make sure we got the best deal. She is fair and no nonsense and does not allow other realtors to try shenanigans or take advantage. We feel truly blessed that we found Rebecca a wonderful realtor but more importantly a wonderful person. Rebecca is always making us laugh and she has a way of making the whole process fun and enjoyable."
"Rebecca helped me secure the home of my dreams! The whole process was exciting and smooth and fun! I’m so happy with the home and our new life...I would not have without her help! She is wonderful!!!"
Rayna & Rick H
"Rebecca was a great help during the purchase of our new home on Whidbey Island. We live off island and Rebecca made every step of our purchase so much easier. She stopped by the house and took photos of anything we were concerned with, met with contractors and inspectors, and quickly answered all of our questions. Rebecca has also been a great resource for helping us find new things to do and new businesses to support on the island. I am happy to recommend Rebecca and am glad to have made a new friend!"
David & Meliss H
"Rebecca did a fantastic job helping us find a home on Whidbey Island! From the moment we met, we had an instant connection and knew right away that Rebecca understood what we were looking for. She was very responsive, always available to talk, meet and provide local recommendations. Throughout the buying process, Rebecca kept us informed and handled everything professionally and seamlessly. Her local knowledge and relationships is significant. We have already used a number of recommended resources, each as great as she has said! It is refreshing to have such a pleasant and uneventful transaction, and we can say this confidently having bought and sold over 10 homes over the years! The best part is that we've also made a new friend in our new neighborhood and continue to stay in touch. Thank you so much Rebecca - you are amazing!"
Jason & Miki Z
"Rebecca is the only Realtor you need to choose when buying or selling a home. We were very nervous about selling our home and from the first contact with Rebecca, we knew she was the one. She was knowledgeable, helpful and an all around great person. She always treated us like family. From loaning out tools, recommendations and helpful critiques on renovations, or offering a friendly word of encouragement through the whole selling process she was terrific. Rebecca is number one through and through. She has the expertise needed to get your home sold or find the right home for a buyer. We cannot say enough wonderful things about Rebecca and everything she did for us. She is what all Realtors should strive to be like. We love her and anyone that is looking for a Realtor in Island County, Washington, should ask for her specifically."
Cheryl & Larry C
"We started our journey with Miss Rebecca (Miss Wonderful) 4 years ago. Rebecca listened to our requests & kept those in her mind until last year when we carried on our house-hunting pursuit. We never had to remind her of our wants, Rebecca had them all at her fingertips. We have been most impressed that Rebecca has , at last, made our dreams come true ! We would highly recommend her. She is very courteous, professional & most efficient dealing with all questions in a very timely manner. Moreover, she is passionate in her desire to fulfill the needs & wants that we gave her. Love her !!"
Genge & Cindy S
"We recently purchased a vacation home on Whidbey island. Rebecca and her associates kept us updated with emails at least once a week that detailed key milestones for the purchase. The process went very smoothly with no unpleasant surprises. What has most impressed us is Rebecca's attention to detail as the loan closed and we took possession. For example, my husband was travelling and not available the day of the closing. Rebecca helped us to coordinate a durable power of attorney so that I could sign for both of us. She has also gone the extra mile in helping us obtain some furniture for the house. From the day we started working with her, Rebecca has been very responsive, professional and easy to work with! I would be happy to work with her again and I highly recommend her to others."
"Rebecca was extremely professional and always kept me up to date on every aspect of the sale. Highly recommend her services. Always easy to contact Rebecca via phone call, text, email."
Debbie & Lance W
"Rebecca made the entire process seamless. Having never lived in the state we moved too, she had a wealth of information and helpful items.
She was responsive, matched us to the home we purchased and followed up on every detail. I cannot recommend her more highly. It's a pleasure to find professionalism and integrity in customer service."
Steve & Megan J
"Had a fantastic experience buying our retirement home on Whidbey. Rebbeca's honesty and enthusiasm for the area was contagious. She showed us the exact properties we needed to see in order to inform ourselves of the current area market and validate our decision. Rebecca was upfront about some area details that buyers can be turned off by, i.e. the jet noise. We knew what we were embarking upon. She was a great communicator and working with her went quite smoothly. Excited to spend our "golden" years in Coupeville!"
Lillian & Dean H
"Rebecca's advice, counsel, and enthusiasm were the most welcome and appreciated parts of our recent purchase. She not only took time to understand what we were looking for, but once we had made a decision on the perfect property for our needs, she supported us every step of the way. She put our preferences first, was our strongest advocate, and answered questions we didn't even know we had. Rebecca's expertise made our overall experience enjoyable and rewarding, even with the many twists and turns that can be part of a purchase. We weren't in the local area, and she was always in contact, including during our business trips and travel. She was available for every request, even attending site visits with our GC, inspectors, and subcontractors when we couldn't attend. Her follow up and attention to detail is excellent, her demeanor always positive and encouraging. She's level-headed, thoughtful, and knows her area like none other. If we could buy another house, we'd do it in a heartbeat just to work with her again, knowing that we would find another home where we will make memories that we will never forget."
Mike & Jami C
"Rebecca did a marvelous job of closing a home in Freeland so that we can move my mother closer to us. She was friendly, professional, very timely and demonstrated that she is indeed well connected with services / expertise in the area. She arranged a great and thorough inspection on short notice, found reliable service people to advise on repair / refurbishment. We've bought and sold homes before but never has the process been this smooth: Rebecca is the Whidbey real estate pro that you want to have!"
David & Tammy S
"I couldn't have asked for a better experience! Rebecca is kind and attentive! She listened to what we wanted from the moment we met her. She took all of our feedback into account when suggesting homes and did not try to persuade us in either direction, which was incredibly important to us. She did a fantastic job about pointing out the positive aspects of each home as well as items to be aware of from a maintenance perspective. If you're looking for a no pressure experience with someone who genuinely cares about what you want and need, Rebecca is a great choice! Highly recommended! Thank you, Rebecca!!"
Rachel & Zach
"Mrs. Rebecca was the key factor in buying our house. We initially viewed a house with her and it didn't work out....a few days later, she showed me a brand new (very well-priced) listing and worked with us all through Thanksgiving week to ensure we got the jump on all other potential buyers. We ended up buying the property! This woman is honest, witty and was the absolute BEST to work with!! Highly recommended! She made buying our first house an exciting and educational experience."
John & Euri H
"Rebecca's professionalism and mastery is impressive. With her intuitive knowledge and expertise, Rebecca successfully achieved our every goal with agility, precision, and punctuality. Highly Recommend!"
Alex & Anne B
"It has been nothing else but a brilliant experience delivered by a highly committed and experienced professional. We hughly recommend Rebecca for both selling your house or purchasing your dream home. Thank you Rebecca for all your help in selling our house and purchasing a new lot."
Alex & Anne B
"Great local knowledge including useful trades for renovation work post sale. Without doubt we would not hesitate to rely on Rebecca again when selling; in fact we are working with her on several land purchases."
"A personal friend recommended Rebecca Robinson to us. We made contact via eMails and phone calls. My Penn Cove waterfront property was recently compromised by the new Shoreline Conservation Act but in spite of that, Rebecca quickly found a cash buyer. The sale of the property was easy, with no 'bumps in the road' because she had everything covered in advance.
We are now looking for waterfront property on the Peninsula and she may have "saved the day" for us by discovering a very peculiar easement on a property we were seriously considering. KUDOS-PLUS to Rebecca for warning us away from it.
So, our five-star "Local Knowledge" review above ought to be a six-star rating because she has proven she works well with other Windermere offices and speaking of, we were able to finalize her sale of our distant property at our local Agent's office and that was very convenient. There is great teamwork within Windermere. Thank you Rebecca! J&J"
Colleen & Lesa
"Such a fabulous agent in every way! Went the extra mile to answer every concern and question. She was so efficient, so willing to assist each aspect of our island home purchase. Quick to answer calls, point out potential problems and negotiate an offer reflecting those issues. When the perfect house became available, she went into action. She walked us through the inspections and communicated throughout each step of our purchase and closing. Rebecca started as our agent and ended as our friend."
Mike & Connie C
"We started the process of selling a manufactured home we had on Whidbey Island in August 2015. We all thought it would take about 60 or so days to get it done but it didn't turn out that way. We ran in to several road blocks with Island County and had to do some major renovations before we could sell the property. We didn't have to do a thing to solve any of these problems because Rebecca did it all. She arranged for the permits, found us a darn good contractor and took care of any other things that popped up along the way. If you're looking for a hard working agent to help you sell your home you can't go wrong in choosing Rebecca Robinson."
"Rebecca was very helpful with the negotiations with an out of town seller. She was able to facilitate all repairs and inspections for a hassle free closing."
Jeanie & Mike S
"Rebecca was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about Whidbey Island and the demographics of the island. We had several areas that we were interested in and she worked diligently to get us into our desired location. Not only did she find our home, it was exactly what we were looking for at a price we could afford. Rebecca never tried to steer us toward homes we could not afford and she never tried to influence our decision. We were out of state purchasers and this was a challenging process; however, Rebecca rose to the challenge and exceeded all our expectations."
"Rebecca has gone completely out of her way to help me sell 2 local properties. The kicker to this is that I am over 1200 miles away! When you get a person who will help transition all the details into successfully selling a property from this kind of distance, I think it says a lot about her integrity. She is with out a doubt a real pleasure to work with."
"Since we live in another state Rebecca informed us of every detail and when out of her way to help us sell fast. She was amazing. Rebecca went out of her way to stage the home and fix issues as required."
"Highly professional and collaborative. We were kept informed at all stages about events and required actions, and more senior advice was sought as appropriate and necessary to the circumstances. Not sure about how some of her other customers have "behaved" in the past, but I think she was a little more worried about our reactions to certain news than she needed to be; it left a shadow impression that she did not feel as self-confident as one would want, which with less savvy clients (and perhaps more aggressive agents) might be misread. I never felt that she was over her head or less than straight up and honest with us, so she deserves to exude more confidence than perhaps she lets herself. Future clients will appreciate that, particularly as it is grounded in a solid and reliable performance."
no no badog
"We had a difficult house to sell. It was a fixer being sold "as is". Rebecca sold our house for more than we thought we could get for it. There were a couple of times I was sure the sale would fall apart. Rebecca's knowledge, expertise and negotiation skill was able to hold the sale together for us.
I highly recommend Rebecca. She is skilled and a hard worker."
"Our working relationship with Rebecca Robinson was from the beginning, one we felt extremely comfortable with. She told it like it was and due to that helped us through the selling process.
Above all, she was honest. She could have pumped up the selling price to cater to us, or in hopes of making a higher commission. She didn't do that - instead she presented us with the truth of what the current market would bear, not what we, the sellers may have thought it was worth. This is a very important factor in the success of selling a property.
Having bought and sold several properties in our lives we'd never sold unimproved land before. With Rebecca's patience and willingness to teach us how the whole process works we are now better educated in that arena.
We are grateful for her patience and tutelage through the entire process. And without a doubt would request her services again if buying or selling any type of property."
"Rebecca was amazing! She treated me like family. I moved cross country to Florida and she made everything happen. She staged the house for showings, made sure the repairs needed were done, had my yard mowed, and even painted a room for me. I couldn't have asked for a better experience."
" Mrs Robinson was wonderful with me. I was a first time buyer so on top of helping me find the house she also educated me step by step on the entire process. She was patient during my learning curve, did everything she could to help expedite the process, and encouraged me over the bumps. In short, she was a ray of sun during a very stressful time."
"First time buyers, experienced buyers, military, retirees, veterans, and all others should consider Rebecca as their #1 go-to person for real estate! Her patience, expertise, and diligence to get the job done cannot be beat. Rebecca helped us find a home that fit "our" needs as well as listen to our expectations without hesitation. We also used Rebecca to sell our other home and we could not ask for a better person, realtor, and friend! I challenge anyone to find another realtor BETTER than her. Top-notch!!!"
"Rebecca was so helpful and professional! She held our hand through the whole long process and was always there when I called with a question. I would recommend her to anyone looking to sell or purchase a house!"
Buyer and Seller
"We were very pleased with Rebecca Robinson. She went above and beyond in the sell of our home and purchasing our new home. I have and will continue to highly recommend Rebecca Robinson to anyone looking to buy or selling their home. She made the whole process run smoothly in both the purchase and sale of both houses. In all the years of purchasing homes, I have to say Rebecca rates as # 1. She puts her clients first! Thanks to Rebecca we had a buy for our home within a weeks time! If we decide to sell again, she will be the one we call on."
"It was a great pleasure working Rebecca as my agent. Her extensive knowledge of the area, in depth knowledge of the property I was interested in and thorough knowledge of contracts and processes were invaluable in helping me make my decision and purchase with confidence. She was always prompt, well prepared, professional, personable and insightful. Attentive to detail, she quickly understood my needs and preferences addressing all questions and concerns completely and without delay. She was energetic and resourceful in resolving the few problems that came up and kept me well informed throughout the process. Rebecca followed through, answering questions and resolving issues that came up even after closing." I highly recommend Rebecca to any prospective buyer.
"Rebecca was very friendly while being a total professional. Very knowledgeable and she answered any question we had promptly. We would use her again and would recommend her to any prospective buyer ! I give her an A++ and a gold star!"
Denise & John T
"Professional, integrity and honesty and clear directions to achieve the goal of selling the house. She is an asset to Windermere. Great personality and easy to work with."
Bonnie K & Merri L
"Rebecca was the up most greatest real estate person I have ever met. I had two Realtors here in Idaho that didn't know what they were doing. They dropped the ball more times than I can say. Rebecca picked up that ball and helped us all the way to the end. In my families opinion she is outstanding with how she does her job. She's very organized and very informative. We are very pleased with Rebecca's work and we would recommend her to anyone over and over again. She went so far as to take my mother to all of the appointments to sign for both houses, not only once but twice because my mom didn't have a car towards the end. She also talked me off a cliff several times when I had to deal with my lender. She dealt with her too as there was just so much happening. Rebecca dealt with it all beautifully and made us all feel great and in the end, stress free."

First Time Buyers
"Rebecca is a true gem! She is extremely knowledgeable about every process of real estate transactions. She also takes as much time as needed to answer questions and address any concerns. I never had to sit waiting, wondering when she would she respond to me. She is prompt, and resourceful, but also tough and determined to ensure her clients get the very best possible! I highly recommend her! In the event we ever need a realtor again, she would with a doubt be my choice!"

First Time Buyers
"Well we did it ! Our first home ?? our cabin in the woods of Whidbey island! And we did it with the help and guidance of realtor Rebecca Robinson from Coupeville Windermere Real Estate/Whidbey Island !!!! She is truly an amazing person and helped us through the ups and downs of buying a home! She went over and beyond with helping us and making it an easy process! I could call her anytime, ask her any off the wall question, she would research anything I asked. Most of all, she helped us through everything! We feel very honored to have worked with her and her company!"
B & T
"Rebecca was an awesome Realtor for us to be connected with. Right away she was very upfront and open about all of the homes we were looking at. She knew the importance of us needing to be in a home ourselves while also informing us of the small details we may have looked over as first time homebuyers unaware of potential money disasters and other problems that weren't necessarily advertised by sellers. She worked with us and was very flexible and responded superfast to all of our calls, text messages, emails, etc. She was ALWAYS available which we genuinely appreciated. When our home came up she contacted us right away before it was officially listed and I truly believe that is a huge reason why we were able to find our dream house! She worked with us through the financial part of our offer and counter offers. She had great recommendations of inspectors and everything we should ask for. When our closing date got pushed back because of weather and a holiday she helped us with a cleaning crew to help us out of our old place when we only had days left to move, offered us moving help with her kind husband, and just all around made us feel like part of our family. She kept in touch with us AFTER we moved in and even showed up right away when we couldn't figure out why our heater in the master bedroom wasn't working (it needed a quick reset) I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking! this is your gal!"
