    We met with Chana a year before we were ready to put our house on the market. We followed her suggestions for prepping the house for showing and for the open house, and have followed all of her suggestions throughout the process. She pointed us to the best offer and has impeccably counselled us through the whole transaction. Chana returned every call and kept us immediately informed about the marketing and sale of our house. We have really appreciated Chana's professionalism, compassion, and knowledge. Thanks so much Chana! ~ Kristen Trefren, Vancouver

    Chana is awesome! She handled everything so well and made the selling process smooth and easy. Chana provides excellent customer service and I strongly recommend her. ~ Elisabeth DeWhitt, Vancouver
    Chana Dolbey was a great help from start to finish. She understood our needs and gave us pointers so we can get the best deal for us. We had over 45 separate viewings and 1 open house in 5 days. The house was busy. We told everyone that we would be considering all offers Sunday at 5 pm. Property was on the market for less than 5 days and we had 14 offers. Chana was always available to answer all our questions and to explain how one thing effected another. Chana referred us to a realtor with this company in Montana to help us with our transition. ~ Edina Morgan, Vancouver WA
    Chana was Very helpful and easy to work with. Knowledgeable, was able to answer all my questions. First time selling a home so she was able to provide feedback and tips that made process go smoothly. Would recommend her to anyone buying/selling a home. ~ Breanna, Vancouver
    Chana is great at what she does. She negotiated in ways I want. She listened to the things I wanted in a house. She took a constant barrage of looking at houses without missing a beat, or seeming annoyed. When I would get frustrated, feeling like I wouldn't find the house I wanted, or I would get outbid, she kept me hopeful, on track, and balanaced toward my goals. She's the professional one needs in their corner if they're buying or selling. I appreciate her like as a professional, and close like family. ~ Jaysen, Hockinson.
    Chana is the only agent we considered to sell our property. This is our second time working with Chana. The strategy that Chana developed and implemented provided a fantastic result. We are very satisfied with our experience. Chana is the best and we can't thank her enough for what she has done for us! ~ Jeff & Anne Doolin
    Chana was AMAZING! The seller and Escrow were not easy to deal with and Chana remained diligent, responsive and professional. Chana is excellent. I will refer her to anyone who will listen. Chana was so on the ball that I only worked with her. I am now a customer for life. ~ Mitch, Washougal
    Highly recommend using Chana and her team. When we decided to place our home on the market we were worried we wouldn¿t be able to find a home that suited our large family. Chana helped us find our forever home and made sure that closing on our old and new house were smooth and happened on time! ~ Stef Cruz Yacolt
    Thank you so much for all of your help again. It means the world that we were able to get it all sold and so soon! ~ Carmen Valdez
    Chana is an experienced real estate agent, she recommended the right sale price and she also made good suggestions when we assessing multiple offers. She was very transparent and stayed on top of every steps during the transaction. I will strongly recommend her to others. I want to express special thanks to Chana for helping my parents who are in their 80s to complete this transaction, very impressed by her patient, professionalism and friendship! ~ Liang Yao
    Chana was very professional and knowledgeable about homes in our area. This move was very stressful for us as we are working very long hours through the process. She made sure there was very few things we needed to worry about during the entire process and I am so thankful for all of her help. ~ Alexis Tivet - Vancouver, WA
    From start to finish Chana did not fail to impress. She put us at ease during the whole process and was always reassuring. She made it her number one priority to address any and all of our concerns. Hands down the best realtor I have worked with and we will for sure use her again if we need a realtor. ~ Chris and Tayler Huntsinger, Yacolt
    We needed help with our new construction home from across the country (New York to Washington), and not knowing anyone in the area that we could get referrals from, took to searching online. And boy are we glad we came across Chana! We read through all the testimonials and after a quick chat with her felt like she would be a good fit to help us navigate through a number of new experiences. And I can safely say that was one of the best decisions we made throughout our big journey. From the very first call it was easy to tell that Chana is as friendly as she is professional. Over the course of many weeks and months did that become more and more apparent. She's kind, honest, and I can confidently say will try her very best to help in whatever way she can. Her vast experience is apparent when dealing with the procedures and paper work, but I felt like she provided much more than that. She was our eyes locally when we were remote, and she is an extremely good listener. Every point that would come up in our myriad of calls would be noted down and she would help follow up. On top of her knowledge and great communication skills, it's easy to tell that she truly enjoys this line of work. And it's obvious it's not just work for her, but she gets pleasure out of helping people in what can otherwise be some difficult situations to navigate. There's a ton of work involved in being an agent already, but Chana goes so much beyond that. It's not a surprise to me at all that she has provided such great value to so many people, and we are now one of them. I will certainly be reaching out to Chana when we need some help in the future, and she 100% has our recommendations for anyone that we know. It has been a pleasure to get to work with her and to get to know her, and we hope to continue to stay in touch! At the end of all of this she feels much more like a close friend than just our representative. ~ Israr, Washington
    Thank you for all of your help in finding us another perfect home for our family. We appreciate all of your time and wonderful communication. ~ Katherine Cramer
    Chana Dolbey is the very best realtor my wife and I have ever dealt with. Our history extends far back to our beginnings in the Portland area. We could not have navigated multiple purchases and sales without her expertise, commitment, and friendship. We owe our successes to her. ~ J Hubbard
    Chana was INCREDIBLE!!! She listened to our needs (a Trust liquidation), analyzed the condition of our house (rough but really good bones) and using a thorough local comparison she gave us options and advice on how to best market and at what price(s) to sell our house. I feel she positioned us perfectly using online tools and full market coverage. This is evident by the fact we sold in one day for more than $40K over listing price and we did not have to do anything to the house..."sold as is" Working with Chana was an amazingly successful and an unbelievably easy experience. We were very comfortable working with her as her experience, local knowledge and honesty were evident from our very first meeting. She had all the answers to all our questions and concerns and we felt she was in our corner at all times. I personally appreciated her accessibility when we needed it either by phone or in person, since we were not local scheduling and communication was a bit tricky. Again we are more than satisfied with our dealings with Chana, we wish there was an AMAZING rating to select as excellent just does not cover our experience. Very rarely, in this day and age, do you find someone that is motivated, detail orientated, experienced while still being down to earth and trustworthy from start to finish. Her availability, follow up and follow thru was truly professional. All of these skills in one person is hard to find but we are so glad we listened to our friend and gave Chana a call. ~ Loree Leonard Aloha Oregon
    Chana Dolbey sold my house in two days, closed the following week with no problems. ~ Mrs. Cook, Longview
    Chana went above & beyond. She was encouraging, and patient. She helped me with every little trade incentive there is. Because of her, I was successful in buying a house. Even in this crazy market. ~ Vancouver Washington "John"
    Promptness and attentiveness were two of my primary qualifications for an agent. Chana did not disappoint. I could not have had a better experience. I was scared going into the process. I had never sold a house previous, so it was all very confusing. I cannot express how comfortable and relieved I was to have Chana as my agent. I feel like this whole experience could not have possibly gone any better! I now know that there was nothing to be scared of! Chana is prompt and thorough. If I needed her, she was there. If anyone asks who I think is the best agent out there....Chana will be the first one I talk about! ~ Aubrey S. Vancouver, WA
    From our first conversation with Chana Dolbey, we were impressed by her knowledge and experience in the real estate market. It was obvious that she really knows her stuff. Her double licensure in both Oregon and Washington was a big selling point for us as well. Chana managed a veritable flood of inquiries when the listing on our Portland house went live. She kept us up to date on every viewing, and provided feedback on the offers as they were received. Chana was also instrumental in helping us write a solid offer on the home we eventually purchased in rural Washington. She was committed to doing everything possible to make that dream happen for us. We could not have navigated our real estate transactions in the current climate without Chana¿s expertise and encouragement. She was an absolute godsend ¿ accessible, knowledgeable, professional . . . and just plain nice. She loves what she does and truly cares about her clients as people. Chana Dolbey would be my first recommendation to anyone looking for a NW real estate agent with both big expertise and a big heart. We are very happy to know her, and immensely fortunate to have worked with her. ~ Mary Cavanaugh and Aaron Cook, Battle Ground, WA
    I have to admit that the fresh sunflowers Chana brought the very first time I met her were a wonderful touch!!! Chana is a wonderful person!!! Since the home sold before it even went on the market, we didnt have a chance to work with anyone else in the office except Chana; however, I imagine that everyone is as wonderful as she is!!! ~ Carol Hodson (now in) Redmond, Oregon
    She was very helpful and friendly and keep me updated on all parts of the sale ~ Ronald kennedy 12907 ne 37 st vancouver washington 98682
    Chana is on my team. Whether I bought my house, or sold it. ~ Jaysen D Vancouver, WA
    Chana was amazing to work with! She came highly recommended to us from my uncle who recently purchased a home with Chana and we were immediately impressed by her dedication, professionalism and willingness to work with us. My fiancé and I were first time home buyers and she made the process a breeze! I would highly recommend Chana to anyone purchasing a home in this area. She was available at the drop of a hat, hard working, answered all of our questions swiftly and politely and helped us find our perfect first home and close on it in less than a month from our initial meeting! Thanks so much Chana, you and your husband were a blessing to our family and we hope you will help us in all our future home buying/selling experiences. ~ Matt Elliott Vancouver Washington
    Shes the best!!! ~ Lacie
    We had Chana 3 years ago to sell our previous home. It sold in one day! We called her when we decided to sell our condo. It sold in 2 days. Chana is amazing. She is a delight to work with and I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to sell a home without any issues. She is so kind and is always reachable. I give her a 100% satisfaction!!!!! Chana is the best sales agent! She is a great person who we enjoyed working with though it was a short time. She is amazing at her work and seems to live and breathe her work as her passion! It shows how much she loves what she does. ~ Kelli Peebles Hoodsport Wa
    Chana is very experienced and it shows. I appreciated the advice that was provided during various point of the sale. I appreciated that she understood that I did not want a sign on the property. I would give Chana an A+ on all counts. I will ask Chana to be my agent in the future. ~ Steve Frank, Vancouver, Washington
    Chana immediately stood out to me because she had tons of great reviews. As first-time home buyers, we needed to be sure we could trust someone to lead us through the process without taking advantage or not fully explaining things to us. Chana's reviews are very accurate, and I'm so glad we went with her. Chana went above and beyond for us. She facilitated a very safe process for us, front to back, to purchase during COVID. She kept us updated with the ever-changing regulations and how they impacted real estate; for the processes we weren't able to be a part of due to these mandates, Chana stood in for us and advocated for our best interests. She also relayed all info back to us, so we really didn't miss out. She was also available to accommodate our scheduling needs, and provided a lot of comfort to us via knowledge and experience as we hit a few hiccups with the house itself. In the end, we ended up with a great house and Chana gave us outstanding service. Chana is very friendly and approachable. Whenever we had a question or needed advice, we knew we could contact her and she'd get right back to us. She updates and sends documents at lightning speed, and she explained the process to us so well that it eased a lot of our first-time anxiety. Chana killed it! We would totally do business with her again. ~ Hannah & Andrew in Battle Ground
    Chana took a very difficult sale of my home and made it work to my betterment. She was flexible, knowledgeable, and above all kept her cool. She dealt with the buying parties and their issues with respect and grace. Highly, highly recommended. ~ Matt Gent
    House was listed at the beginning of the COVID pandemic. Chana worked tirelessly throughout to get us the desired results on our sale. She was always easy to reach even with a busy schedule. She worked very hard to understand our needs and make our desired outcome a reality. She's a rockstar! ~ Jeff C, Vancouver WA
    Chana looked out for our interests. She has earned our trust. She is very approachable and personable to work with. This was our 3rd property transaction with Chana and she did Not let us down. She totally works with us to meet our goals throughout the whole selling and buying process. I would recommend her to anyone I know. ~ Mike in Vancouver
    Chana had a fantastic knowledge of the area and was friendly and professional. We had a short window of time to look for a home and her approach was organized and informative which we greatly appreciated. She was attentive to our needs and made the experience a pleasure. We highly recommend her services to others. ~ Mari Tazelaar, Vancouver
    Chana's wonderful attitude and industry knowledge made this process enjoyable. This was my first home purchase and I had so many questions, which she answered immediately. She was always accessible and I wouldn't have been able to do this without her. I would recommend her to anyone and am so thankful for her during this huge milestone! ~ Michelle, Ridgefield
    I wanted someone with lots of experience, strong market knowledge, preferably someone who was born and raised in the area. It was important to me to work with someone who had a great deal of experience, was professional and pleasant to deal with. But much more than that, I wanted someone with integrity and I found all those qualities in Chana. Not so for others in the industry unfortunately. I think that if most people recognized the value of the training, knowledge and experience Chana has, combined with her great personality and extremely strong desire to make her clients happy, then shed have more business than she could handle. She checked all the boxes on my blue sky wish list. Chanas husband Steve was as great to work with as Chana. Plus I really enjoyed talking with him about other things as we waited on an inspection together. I was very lucky to get with a team like that. Theyre winners. If I ever buy another house, Ill use Chana, and Ill recommend others to use her too. As a matter of fact, I already have recommended her to a person who is considering moving to the area. ~ Stan Stemkoski, Vancouver WA
    Chana Dolbey was fantastic to work with! I was lucky enough to work with her and husband, Steven! They were both professional, knowledgeable, easy to work with and very patient! This was my first time buying a home and it was a very pleasant experience! ~ Tami Christianson, Vancouver, WA
    Everything was explained well. The process was very smooth even though I was out of town for everything except the initial visit. ~ RUSSELL J FLETCHER Cave Junction Oregon
    Chana was excellent from the start. We had only a week visit to pick out a house and she navigated us to every single one we wanted to see in a timely and organized manner. She clearly and consistently communicated with us throughout the whole process. She went above and beyond to get questions and concerns answered and taken care of. We looked forward to seeing her and already miss working with her! We will absolutely be recommending her to any friends or family who find themselves on the market for a house! ~ Marie & Julia Corey, Portland
    I had contacted other brokers before working with Chana and she is the best in my opinion and if you are looking for a real estate broker, look no further. ~ Pat F, Vancouver WA
    We selected Chana Dolby when purchasing our house and was so impressed with the quality of service no matter what time of day or night she is available. Chana is knowledgeable, an expert in her field. We had kept in touch with her over the years. When we decided to sell our property of course I called Chana. Again, knowledgeable, will go the distance for YOU. Chana has valuable contacts to put you in touch with so transaction goes smoothly. With us every step of the way, we felt secure in the buying and selling of our most valuable asset. I cannot stress enough the great experiences we have had with Chana! ~ Valerie, Vancouver washington
    Ive worked with multiple brokers in different real estate deals. Chana is the best EVER! ~ Jennifer Carmerhall
    I can't recommend Chana Dolbey and her team enough. If you are looking for a team that will make you the top priority, understand what you are looking for, respect your time and needs, and be professional, friendly, helpful and efficient, got with Century 21 Northstar. I have worked with Chana and Steven Dolbey on 3 properties now, and I wouldn't go anywhere else. They have developed a fantastic network including a mortgage broker who was instrumental in moving my latest deal from offer to close in 3 weeks! I'm the kind of person who likes to get in and get it done, and they definitely accommodated my style. ~ Heidi B., Vancouver. WA
    Chana went above and beyond with us. We were living in Georgia when we made the decision to move out here - on the other side of the country! As one might imagine- we didn't have much knowledge of the state to even begin to figure out where we wanted to look for homes. After a brief conversation with Chana, she had a pretty clear idea of what we wanted and was able to work within our budget. We flew in for 3 days and had the pleasure of spending 1 and a half of those with her. We found our house the first day out with her and had an offer submitted the same night. Once we were back in Georgia, we had to handle pretty much everything through email and phone calls. Chana made that work out amazingly stress free as well! ~ Kurtis and Valerie Kucera, Cathlamet, WA
    With all the many other comments I've already written here, I'll tell you one thing. If you want to sell your house - Chana knows the market. If you have any questions, Chana has the answers. If you have a little bit of nerves and anxiousness, Chana will calm your fears. Let Chana take control, while you sit back and relax. I'm glad I met her and I always get a smile on my face when I see her smile! She's just a truly neat person. ~
    Chana is an amazing realtor. She listens to what a customer is looking for and works hard to find the perfect. She has excellent communication skills and goes the extra mile for her clients. I would recommend her to anyone looking for property in the Pacific Northwest. ~ Kimberlee Chandler, Tampa, Fl
    Chana and her team (including Steven and Diana) all were very professional and a pleasure to work with. I would definitely recommend this team! ~ Heidi, Vancouver
    Chana was very helpful and knowledgeable as she walked us through our first house sale. She responded to all of my calls, texts and emails in a timely manner and was easy to talk to. I would recommend her to anyone in need of a relator. ~ Jordana, Vancouver, Wa
    Thank you, Chana. We really appreciate you. ~ Joe and Sue Cardinale, Vancouver, WA
    Thank you, Chana. We really appreciate you. ~ Joe and Sue Cardinale, Vancouver, WA
    Chana paid close attention to what we were looking for and presented us options that were exactly what we wanted to see. We have recommended her to family and everyone that has interacted with Chana has been very pleased. We strongly recommend Chana because of her knowledge of the market and the level of care and attention she gives her clients ~ Dave Leandre, Vancouver WA
    Chana Dolbey is the best realtor in Washington/Oregon. Period. ~ Wayne and Sally. Currently residing in Arizona.
    My wife and I were busy with the sale of our current home. Chana helped us in the purchase of the new home while we were over 200 miles away. With my wife's blindness, Chana conveyed things which helped us get a "picture" of what we were looking at. She helped to arrange all aspects of the purchase which included the two closings on the same day, which made this a very pleasant experience. ~ Ken and Cat Johnson, Vancouver WA
    I was told that she would work hard to help me with my quest and that turned out to be very true. Along with her husband everything has been great. She was always right there when needed along with her husband. No problems at all. ~ Howard Wilson Vancouver Washington
    After our first conversation with Chana, we had confidence in her ability to find us a home.She worked to find out what was important to us and then helped us find the perfect home. Thank You! ~ Mark Payne, Yacolt
    Worked with Chana Before on the sale of our house. Awesome LADY. ~ Scott & Pam King
    Chana is an awesome LADY. She was a great help with the sale of the house. She kept us will informed of what was going on through all stages of the sale.Can't say enough. ~ Scott & Pam King
    Chana understood my position and worked with me to be sure my needs were met. I know several of Chanas clients and saw how she goes the extra mile . She and Steven are a great team- the dynamic duo. The marketing plan was effective and she sold my home in record time. ~ Gwendolyn Babi Ridgefield, WA
    Chana was amazing. Always available when I called, or returned my calls quickly. Chana would be great for a first-time buyer and/or seller as she makes the process clear and very stress free. The house sold so quickly there was no need for a yard sign or other advertising. Everything was actually very smooth and closing was a breeze. The title company Chana utilized was awesome. They not only processed the close of the sale of my home in Washington, they accommodated the title company in AZ where I bought a new home. I was able to sign both the sellers papers and the purchase papers in Vancouver, WA. The staff was great. Above and beyond in my book. ~ Cecelia Connolly, Vancouver WA
    I couldn't be happier working with Chana. ~ Judy Mason West Covina, CA
    Great team to have. I look forward to all my sales/purchases with them in the future as well. ~ JD, Vancouver, WA
    We have work with other realtors but Chana was the best by far. She is an expert in her field and you can trust her. She is 100% for her client. If she doesnt have an answer to your questions shell find out, in a timely matter and let you know. I would work again with Chana. I would highly recommend her. ~ Larry Brown Vancouver, Washington
    I own a small business which made it difficult to even get approved for a home loan but chana was so very patient with me and helped me though the experience which was so very important to me. I'm not a huge computer person and she made everything very easy for me and responded RIGHT away with any questions I had ~ Victoria Dublin Vancouver Washington
    Chana's knowledge and experience of the selling of my home and the purchase of my new home proved that she does an excellent job. Chana always answered my questions in detail and helped me with the both the sale of my old house and the purchase of my new one. Chana is very detailed and she knows just what to look for when a home is sold and purchased. All of the members of her team did an outstanding job. Chana's real estate experience is top-notch and it really helped me with the sale of my house and the purchase of my new one. ~ Matthew Young, Vancouver, Washington
    Chana acted quickly with a variety of key decisions and she has an amazing amount of real estate knowledge which positively impacted the sale of my house. Chana and her team were there every step of the way of the selling and buying process. She responded quickly when issues came up and to my questions. I was quite impressed with the job that job that Chana and her team did for me as I sold my house and bought a new one. My house sold in one day and Chana did an excellent job of helping to market the house. Everyone on her team did an outstanding job. ~ Matthew Young, Vancouver, Washington
    Our work with Steve and Chana Dolbey was as smooth as silk. They did a fantastic job of making every step of the process easy to understand and simple to complete. At no point we're we confused or left wondering what's going on. Which is fantastic as it's our first time buying a home. The Dolbeys are fun to talk to and to be around and remarkable at their job. We have already recommended them to everyone we know and we will continue to do just that. ~ Andrew and Katie Cramer, Vancouver, Washington
    She helped us a lot and made things much more simple, thankyou ~ Robert rebikh
    Chana and Steven did such an amazing job for my wife and I, getting into our new home. We couldn't be happier with the work they put in! The recommendations they suggested for inspections turned out to be lifesavers and major money savers as well! I could not recommend them enough to anyone who is looking for a agent duo who will go the extra mile and put in those extra hours to ensure you not only get into the home you want but also a home that will last. ~ Jeremy Weisser Vancouver WA
    Chana was attentive and considerate of our needs. She was there when we signed at the title company and gave us a house warming gift. She was representing the seller but took care of both parties nicely. ~ Garry Gossett, portland oregon
    From the VERY beginning, felt comfortable with Chana! Not only did she demonstrate an amazing knowledge of the area, but I was also appreciated her complete professionalism with keeping me up to date with the status of the sale and buyers. I also feel as if I have made a new friend. In a word, Chana is fantastic! Chana was amazing. From our very first meeting, she outlines a sale plan. She never seemed to be too busy to answer my questions or to call me with sale updates. Excellent! Words, alone, are inadequate to describe how very pleased I am! From the VERY beginning, everyone was terrific! Just wonderful! ~ James L. Tumblin - Portland, Oregon
    Chana Dolbey was always there answering our calls and emails quickly. She is very friendly and is a great person to work with in this purchasing process. ~ Jones, Deer Island Oregon
    We appreciated Chana's availability to answer all our questions quickly and thoroughly, and to keep us updated about the whole process as we walked through it. She was always polite and courteous. Once she got to know us a little, she was very good at matching us with the right home. We were very pleased and would love to recommend her to any of our friends who are thinking of buying a home. ~ Emil and Delphia Goetsch, Gresham, oregon
    We really liked working with Chana Dolbey, she was always available and prepared to go the extra mile (literally). Chana is very open and honest, she tells it like it is! I love that! ~ Dave & Tracy Johnson, Oregon City, Or.
    We gave Chana a huge lists of home to go visit and she set up a tour for us on a Saturday. She was in constant contact. She kept us updated through the whole process and was available to us anytime we needed her. She helped us with many issues that came up and they were promptly dealt with in a fantastic manner. I honestly can't say enough about Chana. She was amazing! ~ Eric and Amanda Hellman Hillsboro, OR
    Chana's help through this process of buying a previously foreclosed house from a bank was what kept this deal together. She is knowledgeable, professional, prompt, friendly, approachable, and always patient while also having the tenacity to deal with some less than ideal scenarios involving bank sellers, inspections, repairs, and follow-up even after the sale. I would definitely recommend Chana to anyone looking to buy or sell - she made all of the difference with our home purchase process! ~ Denise, Portland, OR
    Raymond Clevenger - Seller - Chana is amazing! Honestly, she made the entire process of selling our home seamless. Chana brings great energy, communication, strong advice and surrounds herself with the best professionals in the business. As an example, Chana's preferred photographer provided such high-quality photos that we had the best looking listing on the market. Do we recommend Chana and Steven Dolbey.... YES!!!!!
    Joe Hubbard - Buyer - If you've read this far in search of a fantastic realtor, stop reading and hire Chana! My wife and I moved to Portland from the Bay Area and although it took several months to sell our CA home, Chana went above and beyond for months to show us local options and strategize. We would not be in the position we are in now if not for her unrelenting support. Words that come to mind when I think of Chana include knowledgeable, very friendly, selfless, acutely aware of regional and market trends, and loyal. Despite our unanticipated and lengthy timeline, her support for us only grew with time. My wife and I could not have asked for more. So, stop reading, and give this fantastic woman a call!
    John Dickerson - Buyer - After going through several of Realtors that were not much help I stumbled upon Chana and Steven on accident over the summer of 2017. Both are great characters who genuinely care about helping you find the home your looking for. They're not just looking to sell you a 'house'. They will spend hours or days helping you find that home you have been looking for. I'd give them a 10 out of 10 every time.
    John McCamish - Seller and Buyer - We interviewed three realtors before we chose Chana to sell our home and help us find our next home. When we hired Chana the market was very strong and our home sold quickly so we had to find another home fast. Chana was on it from the beginning and demonstrated endless patience while we were looking at multiple homes to see what we liked. She keyed in on these points and found us homes that would work for us, in spite of there being such a limited inventory. Her availability, knowledge of the market, and expertise was put to the test and she surpassed all expectations. We sold our home quickly, received a very good price, was able to find a home quickly that worked well for us. I have bought and sold 4 homes in the past, in the future I would hire Chana in a heartbeat.
    Greg Williams - Buyer Chana was very hands-on, advising on my first-time home purchase and available to show homes around my work schedule. I really appreciate her integrity and honesty.
    Adam Peebles - Seller - Chana & Steven Dolby went above & beyond for us. Chana made herself available to us even in the early & late hours. Chana kept us up to date and is very professional. She has a great personality and fun to work with. We will recommend them to all our friends.
    Kelli Peebles - Seller - Chana was amazing! We called her on a Sunday to go view a home for sale. She set it up and met us within an hour. She even left a Seahawks game to meet with us...who does that? She was amazing. We didn't buy that house, but did end up listing our home with her and sold it in TWO days!!! I would highly recommend her for buying or selling or both!!
    Chris Krowczyk - Buyer - I can really tell these two love their job. They took joy in helping us through everything in our first home buying experience. I'm so glad I had them on our side handling everything the way they did! Thank you so much for being such amazing people!
    Pat Krebs - Seller and Buyer - Involved in a difficult sale required an expert. Chana was professional, excellent with contract writing, an most importantly, follow through. Her ability to multi task is exceptional. She went the extra mile to protect our interest.
    Miranda Johnson - - seller - In the modern business world we often see that business and making money come before clients and their needs, but Chana Dolbey is one of the very few business individuals left who can not only be successful, but can make a client feel like he or she is the only person she is working with. I have to say that it was absolute luck that I was given a referral to Chana by a former neighbor before listing my home, and I truly believe that it was the best choice I could have made (even when I had already consulted another agent). Chana went above and beyond each and every day to make sure the listing and selling of our home was perfect, as well as followed each step of the closing with great attention. In my opinion Chana was the glue that held our closing together. She stepped up to the plate and made things happen without someone having to ask her to check into things. Being a first time home seller the process can be a difficult one, but Chana made sure that I understood how each step would proceed and what to expect as the process moved forward. She would be a great choice for anyone seeking to buy or sell a home. She has years of experience and a knowledge base that will be sure to make any client at ease during what could be a difficult transition in someones life. I feel blessed to have worked with her and look forward to her help in our search for a new home in the near future.
    Mike Beaudoin - Buyer - My wife and I so appreciate Chana and Steven, as both were very helpful in answering all our questions promptly, and kept us updated at all times. Chana and Steven worked very well as a team, when we wanted to see a home or just had questions one of them was always available. Getting to know my wife and I, and our needs was very important to them, and they listened and found us a wonderful home. The biggest thing for me was how they walked us through each step after we made an offer, what to expect, what to ask of the seller and what we should expect to see and hear as the process moved forward. A+ Chana and Steven are a Good, Honest, Hard working couple that I would have no problem recommending.
    Curtis Carlson - Seller - Chana was great to work with and was very patient on a somewhat challenging sale. She was quick to respond and knowledgeable.
    Lisa Ricks - Buyer - Chana and Steven are two of the nicest people I've ever met. They helped me when others didn't want to because I didn't want to spend a ton of money on a house. They were patient and always available to help me whenever I needed them. They went above and beyond to help me find my house. I'm still getting settled in my new home but I love it and can't thank Chana and Steve enough for all they did for me. I would recommend then to anyone that wants to buy or sell a home..
    Joy Graham - Buyer - Chana is a wonderful, responsive and trustworthy agent. She made sure all my needs were met. Within a week I had found the house of my dreams, had an inspection and felt honored, respected and gently guided throughout the whole process. She answered all my questions and went out of her way to insure that I felt comfortable with all the aspects of the negotiations and purchase. I highly recommend her!
    Jeff Clemens - Buyer - She was on on the ball for everything and got us the best house for our money. Jumped through all the hoops to get our house to close on time. Very happy with her service and would use again. Thanks Chana!
    Karen Haley My husband and I just purchased a house. We were lucky to have Steven and Chana Dolbey as our Real Estate Agents. They came highly recommended. Now we know why. I'm sure we didn't make it easy on them. We looked and many homes. This went on for over eight months. Steven never complained about showing us homes even on holiday's. I highly recommend Chana and Steven if your looking to purchase a home.
    Grace Clemens - Buyer - Chana was the best realtor we could have had! She got EVERYTHING done on time. She's ahead of the game by a long shot. So detailed.

    Howard A. Hendrix - Seller - Chana was great to work with; always on top of what was happening with all parties involved and eager to keep things moving. She is very detail oriented, and careful to keep all the paperwork lined up and current. I feel like Chana in every sense of the word represented us fairly and adequately and discharged her "agency" in a very professional manner. I highly recommend her and the services she brings to the table. H. A. Hendrix
    Jeff & Anne Doolin - Buyers - Chana did a fantastic job for us. We knew very little about Vancouver. She provided us with all of the information and insight that we needed to purchase our new home. She is professional in her approach and very knowledgeable about the process. Our questions were answered and our concerns were addressed. She is a lot of fun to work with. Beyond that, Chana gave us something that we value greatly...her time. A lot of it. Chana has earned our respect and our trust. She has become our friend. It doesn't get any better than that.
    Nathaniel Loy & Kristeen McGreal - Buyers - Chana was great. She answered all our questions in a timely manner and always made sure we were informed. She got us connected with a great mortgage lender too. Thanks to her, the home buying process was a breeze on our end and look forward to working with her in the future.
    Kerry Haley - Buyer - Steven Dolbey was a pleasure to work with. My wife and I spent approximately 8 months looking for a home which met very specific criteria and looked at many homes in the process. Steven was always very attentive and arranged many showings of homes, accommodating our schedules. When we did find homes that we considered making an offer on he offered valuable advice which allowed us to make intelligent decisions. When we did get an accepted offer Steven was exceptional at communicating any requirements related to paperwork, inspections, etc...I could reach him any day of the week, at any time. I would highly recommend Steven and Chana Dolbey to anyone seeking to purchase a h
    Sarah ansboury - Seller - Chana was there for me every step of the way. I travel full time and she went the extra mile to make sure I felt comfortable even though I was not around. I don't know what I would have done if not for the efforts Chana went to to make sure my sale went through without a hitch.
    Nancy Ansboury - Seller - Chana took on a tough task and did an excellent job. She really cares about her clients and keeps them well informed. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home!
    Valerie D - Buyer - Highly recommend Chana and Steven. I can't express how hard working and right on task they are. Guided my husband and i through the whole process of buying a home making sure our finance company, inspector, appraiser.
    Vince Horner - Seller - I highly recommend Chana & Steve. They took the time to listen to what i wanted & needed & what my issues were regarding the sale. They accommodated fully and the house sold quickly. Chana did an excellent job of representing me in negotiations. The process was extremely smooth. She provided me w/ various options to ensure all signings and communication were as little of an inconvience as possible. They were 100% professional and demonstrated a high level of integrity. She earned my trust and the outcome was completely satisfactory.
    T.J. & Mylea Anderson - Seller and Buyer - Chana is great to work with. She is positive and efficient. Whenever we had a question or concern she always made us a priority. Although selling a home is never stress-free, Chana helped the process go very smoothly. A few years ago Chana also helped us buy our home when we moved to the area. We would highly recommend Chana and Steven to anyone who is buying or selling a home!
    chuck krowczyk - Buyer - Chana and Steve are so awesome. They listened very carefully and got us a perfect house
    Peter Swartz - Buyer - Chana and Steven are amazing people and I love my new house! They went far beyond my expectations and I couldn't be happier. If you need a team that isn't going to let you down, or let you settle, you need these two.
    Laurie KROWCZYK - Buyer - We cannot say enough on how well Chana and Steven worked hard for us, they were very helpful in helping us find the perfect house for us I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a house you will not be disappointed we are honored to call them are friends

    Michael & Vivian Limtiaco - Buyers - Michael and I moved back to WA state from Guam several years ago. Originally, we left our home in 1994 to live in the United States and through the years, we've rented housing but always dreamed of one day owning a home to enjoy with our children and grandchildren-the American dream! The thought of purchasing a house (as a first time buyer) was intimidating and we never pursued the dream only because we really had no knowledge of where to begin and then we met Chana. She listened to our wish list requests of what we would like to have in a house and in the first weekend looking at several homes, not realizing it would be our last, because we found the home we've dreamed of and in our budget! She worked feverishly, regardless of the time, to call us back with answers to questions we had from the start of the paperwork to the signing of closing documents. Chana's level of realty expertise and years of experience really shined through for us and we've never been so happy! Michael and I believe that she helped make this journey of ours so smooth and surprisingly quick! We would highly recommend her to family, friends or anyone looking to purchase a home! Thank you.
    Larry Jodoin - Buyer - Chana was wonderful to work with !! Very knowledgable in all aspects. She spent a lot of time with us to make sure we got the house we wanted !! Thanks again Chana and we will recommend you to any of our friends and family.
    Steve Carroll - Buyer - Chana was fantastic! She is very professional, highly motivated and proactive. Couldn't have asked for a better realtor. Thanks, Chana!
    Larry Blonsky and Marnie Farness - Seller and Buyer - I have had the pleasure to work with Chana several times. She is professional, thorough, and friendly. In buying our house, she gave us great advice based on the the market, and took care of all the details that allowed us to get into our house much faster than anticipated. We would highly recommend Chana to anyone interested in buying or selling a house
    Becky Rey - Buyer - Chana did a fantastic job of finding the perfect home for me! She was great about getting back to me quickly and answering all of my questions. The home buying process can be complicated and I felt like Chana helped everything to go very smoothly. Thanks Chana! I will definitely recommend you.
    Vanessa Jones- Buyer - Chana did a great job answering our multiple ongoing questions through our home buying process. She updated us through the process and is very friendly.
    Kirsi Malone - Seller - Chana was wonderful in helping us to sell our home. We had some strange circumstances and she just rolled along with us during our setbacks. She always answered our questions promptly and was always pleasant. We would highly recommend her to anyone seeking to buy or sell a home. In fact, we did recommend her to our neighbors who were also very pleased!
    Ross & Jeanne Williams - Buyer and Seller - Chana was our realtor when we purchased our home in 2009 so it just made sense to have her list our home in May 2015 when we needed to sell. Chana has always gone above and beyond her realtor role to assist us and was always available to answer questions we had no matter what time of day. We highly recommend Chana Dolbey to anyone looking at purchasing or selling a home. You will be highly impressed with Chana's professionalism and knowledge in the realty business!
    Ginger Speranza - Seller and Buyer We had a great moving experience with Chana. She was patient kind and really listened to our concerns. In the end the house she chose to show us was the one we picked. She also saw the sale of our house and the purchase of our new house through to the end. She spent a lot of time making things come together with the lenders. I would use her again and I have already been recommending her to everyone who is looking to sell or buy. You won't be disappointed with Chana!
    Ted Steinbeck - Seller - Chana Dolbey was great to work with. She answered her phone in a timely manner (like within an hour) and answered all our questions. Selling our home with Chana was a very pleasant experience. I would highly recommend her.
    Emil & Delphia goetsch - Buyers - We so appreciate Chana, as she was very helpful in answering all our questions promptly, and kept us updated at all times. She was very helpful when we weren't sure how to complete a procedure. Once she got to know us a little, she was very good at matching our personality with the right home for us. She was very good at relieving some of the anxiety that goes with looking for and purchasing a home.
    David Leavenworth - Buyer and Seller - A satisfied customer and friend - Chana has been our agent in buying a home in Vancouver, and later selling that same home for much more than I thought it was worth by suggesting a higher price for our listing. She managed to sell the house in only five days, for full price, and for cash. Chana also sold a house for us which had been on the market for nearly three years when listed with other brokers. I highly recommend her.
    Stacy - Home buyer - I purchased my home and Chana represented me! She is very detail oriented and thorough. She kept me informed every step of the way from the time the offer was accepted until the transaction closed. When making the offer she gave me suggestions on how to compete with multiple offers. She is very friendly and positive. I really enjoyed working with Chana and would highly recommend her to anyone I know!
    Susan Clanton - Buyer - Chana did an excellent job of responding to my interests as I identified what property I might want. One of her best skills is immediate response and great com
    John and Amber Earnest - Seller - Long term Landlords. We are John and Amber Earnest. Our situation was unique due to an early retirement. We needed to liquidate all our rental properties in a negative economy and still have sufficient income to cover all the capital gains and the cost of selling. We enjoyed being landlords. We hoped to find an investor that would want to continue working with the long term clients, that were established in our duplex. Chana was extremely sensitive to our needs and worked closely with various buyers to complete the deal. Due to our very busy schedules she introduced us to "Doc-u-sign" and the entire usual "merry-go-round" sales event went seamlessly! We have bought and sold properties many times and it was delightful to work with Chana. Chana's knowledgeable information and research was beyond helpful. We consider Chana timely, responsible and dedicated to meeting our agreements. We will continue to work with her until our final property sale is completed.
    Gina Ariosa - Buyer - recent transplant from the East coast - I highly recommend Chana. She was the best realtor one could ever hope for. She was timely in her responses to questions. She made sure all the deadlines were being met, and pursuing anything that wasn't being done within the needed time frame. She was available and a good communicator - explaining the process to me as we went along. I would recommend her to anyone I know who is looking for a great realtor!
    E & W - Buyer and Seller - My husband and I found Chana by accident, and very happy we did. So far we have bought a house, and planning to list the old one in the next couple of weeks. Chana has been responsive, transparent, helpful, and willing to do whatever needs to be done to make things work. She has mediated the purchase of the new house in ways I wasn't expecting, communicating with all of the parties to make things go quickly and smoothly. I fully expect our selling experience to be just as pleasant. Thanks, Chana!
    Mike Reganold - Seller - Chana was always punctual,courteous and ready to listen to my needs or concerns.She was always accessible and eager to go the extra mile for me.Even from my initial cold calls looking for a realtor,others did not seem interested in coming to my home to view it.They would only e-mail me comps on other homes.Chana was there the next day with her expert advice.She was pleasant and honest. I would and will refer Chana to anyone.I was somewhat emotionally tied to the house,but after making the decision to sell,Chana was always there to help and walk me through he process....Thank you Chana Dolbey...Respectfully,Mike Reganold
    David and Tracy Johnson - Home Buyer - Chana Dolbey was a huge help, finding our Dream Home. Chana was always available for questions and setting up home viewings. It is Chana's personality and her ability to identify the needs we had, that separated her from the other Real Estate agents we previously had. I would highly recommend her to anyone out there looking. She made our experience very special and help us get what we wanted.
    Stefanie Abbott - Seller - We used Chana as our listing agent. She was extremely thorough and conscientious. We really enjoyed her happy personality. If we had questions, she was always extremely prompt in her responses. She saw us through the whole process from beginning to end. We would recommend her to anyone.
    The Olsons - Newly Retired & Relocated - We had the pleasure of meeting Chana a little over a year ago when we moved to Washington. Chana met and exceeded our expectations ... She was always responsive to our phone calls & emails. She kept us current on every property we viewed, offered suggestions & went out of her way to be sure our needs were being met. We continue to keep in touch with Chana & anticipate we will work with her again!
    Heidi Babi - Buyer - Chana went above and beyond to find me the perfect house, in an incredible location, in a very short time frame, and she connected me to a mortgage broker who was able to work miracles and pull it off in the same time frame. I can't say enough about her expertise and knowledge, and her dedication to her clients.
    Carolyn R. Smith - Buyer - We have nothing but positive comments about our experience with Chana, she will adjust herself to whatever transpires. Our search for our new home changed from what we were originally looking for and ended up having a new house built. We were going to have her sell our house and before we could get to that point our neighbors wanted to buy our house, we wondered how Chana would react and she was understanding and professional. She also stayed willing to answer any questions we had. We are grateful for the experience and would recommend Chana to any one trying to sell their home.
    Jo svoboda - Buyer and Seller - Professional, friendly and most important --available. Always answered my calls.
    James Copeland - Buyer - Chana Dolbey helped me out tremendously a few years back when I was first moving into the Northwest. I had never lived in the area before and was going to be stationed here for four years (which will probably turn into 8 years). I spoke with her at a length over email while stationed overseas and she volunteered her time on weekends after I moved here to show me several properties in the Vancouver area. I found my dream home and have been happily living in it ever since. She helped negotiate the price down on the house and later, went on to introduce me to several local professionals that helped not only finance the house but potentially manage it while I was away and needed renters. I couldn't have asked for a better home-buying experience. Chana's the best.
    Eric Hellman - Seller and Buyer - Chana has been the best realtor we have ever experienced. She was constantly pushing for solutions in our purchase and sale to a level that went beyond what a average realtor would do. I would highly recommend Chana to anyone looking to buy or sell in the NW.
    Danielle Smith - Buyer - I would recommend Chana a million times over. She was there for us and very helpful when our own agent wasn't. I feel without her we would have stayed in the dark and been walked all over through our entire purchase process. Thank you so much for going above and beyond and going the extra mile for us. We appreciate you so much!!
    Elizabeth Idlewine - Buyer - Chana Dolbey works very hard for her client. She came and gave me a free appraisal of my property in April of 2012. She was well prepared, polite and knowledgeable. I called her in 2014 when I made a purchase in the "Heights area of Vancouver". We closed the deal in 2 weeks. Love her!
    Linda Johnson - Buyer - I wanted to take moment and recommend Chana. I was moving from Texas and had one day here in town to find a home. Therefore there was a lot of preparations and follow up. She was really able to identify what was important to me and found me choices that really met my needs. A whirl wind of showings in one day and even viewed one house twice. We love our home. Thanks.
    Sonia Rivera - Buyer - I recommend chana Dolbey. First time buyer , she was able to work with my crazy schedule . She found my dream house . She is very nice and friendly and willing to do anything for you.
    Dorene Thomas - Seller - Great agent ! Keeps the client informed on what is happening. Has a lot of energy and works hard on client's behalf. Keeps up to date on what is happening in the Real Estate market and what is available.
    Sheryl - Buyer - Chana worked very closely with my mortgage lender and with the sellers agent. She knew what we could ask for and what we could not in order to get the best deal I could get. She directed me to good neighborhoods with her extensive knowledge of the area. She showed up for every step of the transaction and knew who to call to get things done. i could not have bought my wonderful house without Chana Dolbey!
    Marcie- Buyer - Chana made us feel as though we were her only clients. She's quick and efficient at what she does!
    jean - Seller and Buyer - Chana did an excellent job of working with us to find the right home . She researched the market well and in no time we had purchased a home in Vancouver .
    Julian Anderson - Home Buyer - Chana Dolbey helped me almost 5 years ago in the purchase of my home. I would recommend her to anyone who is in the market to buy or sell a home. Purchasing a home can be a scary and exciting experience for some people, as it was for me, and she was with me every step of the way. One of the things that I appreciated most was that she was constantly available each and every time I reached out to her with questions. I know that I must have interrupted her dinner times and I know at one point through the 30 day long purchase she had a friend visiting from out of town, she always answered her phone or would return my call within minutes. I also remember at one point I was looking at a larger home in a bit of a rough neighborhood, she kindly looked at me and shook her head NO, she knew it wouldn't have been a very safe neighborhood and I truly respected her honesty because she was absolutely right. Her availability and commitment to me was something that I won't forget. If you are looking for a realtor who has your best interest in mind, Chana is for you!
    Sally Condit - Seller and Buyer - Chana is an amazing realtor!! She's with you every step of the way. She is knowledgable, she's friendly, cares and listens to what you have to say. No other realtor will ever sale my homes! Chana or nothing!!!!??

        How to “Win the Bid” in Multiple Offer Situations

        This is a dilemma we are all facing in these times of low housing inventory. There are some strong points to keep in mind when you are working as the buyer's agent.Make A PlanYour buyer must have a solid plan for financing, and be pre-approved. There is no point in showing them homes unless they have done their part.Talk to your buyer frankly about what kind of property they can expect to buy in their price range. This is not the time to buy low and flip houses – those deals are just not ou...
