Tell Us Your Story

Tyler was a huge help the whole time.

He showed up to every meeting and fought for us when the builders of our house didn't have everything right. He stayed in contact and always easy to get a hold of.


Carly was (and is) absolutely amazing!

She helped us purchase our first house. She was appropriately aggressive and very easy to work with. Her knowledge with the area and market made us feel comfortable and safe in our decisions. I have many friends looking for houses, and I am hoping to send them her way!

Kellie W.

We met Carly in 2019 and it was a pure coincidence as “our” agent was not available.

She showed us the house and we, my wife and I immediately realized with that we had been super lucky and decided to have her as our agent. CARLY is a knowledgeable honest and approachable person. Because of her we got the house that we loved in no time no hassle and at OUR CONDITIONS yes you are reading it right, in a shark tank we had a great and smooth swim!!! I’m 2020 because of the pandemic unfortunately we had to sell our newly bought home and Carly assisted us again. This time she was even more amazing than the first time. She really ran the extra mile she assisted us with all you can think about mortgage, movers agencies escrow whatever you can think of, and ALWAYS with confidence because she was always 20 feet ahead of us, professionally but with a human touch. We believe that indeed we got the best real estate agent in the whole country! CARLY THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING YOU HAVE DONE FOR US!

Peppe C.

You are the best real estate agent that I have ever had!

Really! You handled situations well and I appreciate you working hard to try and solve the problems with HUD. I will refer you to others, and already have.


I can’t say enough great things about Margaret.

She helped me find the perfect home, one where I have been happy for a year now. Things I appreciate: • She listens. This may not seem critical, but it is. She never wasted time taking me to see anything but what was on my ‘list’. • She carefully walked me through the entire buying process, answering every question clearly. • She followed up, making sure I had everything I needed, even anticipating things I hadn’t thought of. • She never pressured me. She made both the search and the finding of my home a positive experience. I wholeheartedly recommend her!


What a blessing to meet Margaret Fast.

We needed to get my aging mother off of Whidbey Island. After living on the island for 18 years, it was an emotional task for myself and my mom. I could give a hundred reasons why everything went so well. Not only did we find a home for her, but I then had to sell her Whidbey home. Margaret made it happen, covering all the problematic things that came up: septic issues, HOA, propane tanks and the list goes on. But I found working with her is like working with a longtime family friend. I will call her for any transaction going forward!


We have worked with James Minkley for many, many years.

We have seen James out-perform other Agents in so many different areas, it is incredible. James ensures that he maintains the best skills available in each of these areas: market comprehension, negotiations (on your behalf), deal structure, creativeness, customer service, hard work ethic, crisis intervention, Real Estate laws and regulations, compliance, and most importantly....overall personal experience. Our entire team HIGHLY recommends James for all of your Real Estate Transactions (buying or selling, short-sales, REO's, etc.). You will not be disappointed!

TJ Gallo

Carly treated us with respect, like family, when showing us homes.

She found out what our needs and budget were. She worked within that budget. She let us decide if the property worked for us!! No pressure!! She was there for any questions we needed answered. We had fun looking at places, she has a sense of humor! We have confidence she can help anyone find their forever home too.

Lou B.

Thank you so much for all you’ve done for Dave and me over the years.

From the purchase of our home in 2005 to the finalizing of our sale in 2020. You have been very willing and able to show us MANY homes in the past, always available to answer questions that we had. Thank you SO much for your caring attitude and help anytime we needed you.

Dave and Lynn

Margaret worked under very unusual circumstances to help us buy a house for our parents.

She managed the sale of their home out of town by visiting and fully researching that market. She offered sound advice on pricing and she navigated the sale professionally. In addition to her business leadership, she offered our parents sincere kindness and compassion during their relocation -- a very difficult time. And then Margaret went above and beyond what other realtors would have done to work on the purchase of a home near ours for our parents. She maintained excellent communication with the seller and continuously offered professional support. What could have been a very complicated sale was, from our side, a smooth transaction. She did a lot of relationship-building with the seller in order to get us the best deal possible. Margaret has proven herself to be knowledgeable, proactive, authentic, and wise. She tells the truth. If we sell or buy again we will definitely ask for her help.

Mat and Suzan

James was great throughout the entire home purchasing process.

My wife and I were new to Puget Sound and quickly came to rely on James' local knowledge and expertise. I also need to mention his patience. We must have looked at 3 dozen houses and never heard him complain and was already ready to look at new homes. I've recommended him to friends a few times already.


Margaret was truly amazing.

She is smart and accessible, friendly and strong. She knows her stuff and she went to bat for us at every turn...and there were a LOT of turns in our process. From buying the new one to selling the old one, she has so much experience that there really wasn't a better choice for a real estate agent. I thought she was amazing already but then I saw other agents as I've since watched other friends go through their own buying and selling process. They were all good agents, but Margaret is clearly a cut above, in another class, truly all her own. She really is the top of the line and fun and classy, to boot! Choose Margaret Fast, you will be so glad you did!


My experience with a Carly Willis was great, she brought me to any condo I was looking into as well as helping me understand monthly pricing.

She also was great at responding to any concerns or questions I had.

Bryce C.

Margaret is the best!

She was amazing with helping us purchase our first home. We wouldn't be in our forever home if it wasn't for her! After going through a few Realtors and nothing working out well, it was a blessing from God to connect with Margaret! She is compassionate in what she does and goes above and beyond to see you through it all! ❤️


Tyler is a great realtor.

100% of the time I felt he was acting with my families best interest in mind. He is very knowledgeable and made the process of selling our home very simple. We had an offer in less than a week! We are using Tyler to buy our next home as well and he has never been pushy or anything while looking for homes, we highly recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor that cares.

Justin C.

Margaret helped us find & buy a house when my husband & I got married.

She is so easy to work with. I really dislike pushy car salesmen and real estate agents, but Margaret is above and beyond the best real estate agent we've ever had the pleasure to help us. She tells it like it is. I like how she allows you to walk through each house at your leisure. Other agents can seem like they are commission driven but not Margaret. It's almost like she becomes a part of the family through the process. We would recommend her anytime!

John and Tina

Margaret truly has her clients' best interest at heart.

She works tirelessly to help her buyers find the right home by listening to their needs, recommending & showing properties, and building a relationship with the sellers and their representation to help ensure success. Margaret is very accessible and gives her clients her full attention.

Ryan and Candice

Working with Tyler to find the perfect home for me was a great experience, he helped set my expectations regarding prices and neighborhood needs.

Being a first time home buyer was intimidating at first but Tyler's patient approach gave me time to make a confident and informed decision. His timeliness in handling my questions and paperwork was also top notch and very accommodating. I highly recommend Tyler to anyone looking to purchase a home.

Michelle S.

Carly is very professional, knowledgeable and patient.

She took the time to get to know us and our needs and encouraged us to always aim for the "perfect" house. She was available for questions and her response time was quick. I highly recommend her as a real estate agent!

Sophear O.

I cannot say enough good things about Carly.

We worked with her to buy our first home and she made what could have been a stressful process easy and even enjoyable. Carly is knowledgeable, hardworking, honest, available, and will work with your situation and budget to get you into the right home. She really knows what she’s doing and is also great at explaining every step of the process to make sure we were comfortable. Carly really listened to what our family’s needs were and actually cared about helping us find a house that fit. She is straightforward and honest at every step and actually cares about her clients over just making a sale. Whether you’re experienced or a first-time buyer who isn’t sure about the homebuying process, I would highly recommend reaching out to Carly.

Annelise S.

Margaret was invaluable to us as first-time home buyers.

She was always available for our questions, which were many, any time of day. She was quick to respond and never made us feel like the inexperienced home buyers we were. Margaret handled every situation with ease and confidence which made the whole process comfortable and pain free for us. We'd recommend Margaret without hesitation.

Chad and Whitney

Margaret is reliable, passionate and of course fun to work with.

She will serve you well with her strong work ethic and true integrity and her deep interest in your quest.

Brent and Gayle

We wanted a house with some land so we'd have more room for our kids and dogs to play.

Margaret helped us find and purchase a home in an ideal location with fantastic property and a lot of potential—just what we were looking for. She was able to help us navigate what became a somewhat tricky real estate transaction, as the owner of the house we were purchasing decided to purchase our house as well. We essentially switched houses—a pretty rare situation! Margaret is extremely thorough and punctual. She was always on top of things and constantly in communication with us and the other agent. We appreciated her proactive approach and great communication skills. I would highly recommend Margaret to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is an expert in her field, fun to work with, and everything else you'd want and expect in a real estate agent

Stefan and Heather

In April 2016 we made a life changing move.

It was at the front end of the market frenzy when we discovered a view condo in our neighborhood. Until then the discussion to someday downsize had been on the back burner, but when we walked into our now home that beautiful Spring day, the conversation changed. We called our dear and good friend Margaret to see if the dream to have a view home in our neighbor could become a reality. Margaret was there for us from start to finish helping us navigate selling our home and buying our condo. In the midst of a crazy busy season we appreciated Margaret’s commitment to being available to answer questions and advocate for us on both the sale and purchase of both transactions. Margaret is both personable knowledgeable and a joy to work with.

Craig and Margo

James helped us find our first home in Bothell, WA and we are thrilled.

We've lived here a year now and it's perfect for our needs. James was professional, pleasant to work with, and honest. I appreciate his honesty and perspective in an industry where you don't always get that.

Chris D.

I've bought and sold a number of homes over the years.

Carly Willis was the most professional, knowledgable, courteous, and communicative realtor I've worked with. She shows up for appointments on time, has all the information needed at her fingertips (or knows where to get it), knows when to encourage and when to back off a bit. The home I just purchased is likely my "forever" home, but if I ever wish to purchase another, Carly will be my first phone call.

Ann H.

The Plumeria Homes Team hung in there with us in our long protracted journey in selling my late mother’s house.

The Plumeria Homes Team was always there with a positive attitude and new approach to our situation. She worked tirelessly with us as sellers and kept us well informed at every stage of the sale and escrow process. She has a solid sense of the real estate market and the Santa Monica area. We would highly recommend working with The Plumeria Homes Team!

CA. – Liz Dietl

Margaret and Gary, Thank you for your amazing services.

Thank you so much for all your patience and hard work it took to sell and prep our house! You both are a great team and always have a happy smile. I will continue to refer you to others for real estate needs!


Carly Willis has over 5 star quality.

She has a good personality, friendly and easy to talk too. I will recommend her anytime.

Violet G.

The Plumeria Homes Team made selling my house incredibly easy … and I must add how quickly she sold it and for a great price, too.

The Plumeria Homes Team's professionalism and expertise is exceptional and made the entire process stress-free. She kept me informed every step of the way and was always quick to return my phone calls and texts. If you choose to work with The Plumeria Homes Team, you will not be disappointed!

CA. – hamnetsadler

From the first day that we sat down with Tyler to sell our house, we knew that he was exactly the Real Estate agent that was going to get the job done for us.

He answered every question, every fear and every issue we could think of professionally, efficiently and with confidence. This confidence helped us throughout the entire process. We had so many questions and concerns throughout this time yet Tyler never left us wondering. Tyler communicated and shared with us each aspect of the proceeding as it went along. We trusted in Tyler to not only quickly sell our large property but that he truly had our best interest in all these dealings. We were not disappointed. His professionalism, his positive attitude, his availability and his knowledge in his business allowed our property to sell to new owners in a much shorter time period then we thought possible. His communication skills with us are something that all agents should learn when dealing with the public. Tyler made a very stressful period extremely easy and comfortable for us. Thank you Tyler for your time, your skills and for making sure we were treated with the upmost respect. We look forward to working again with you in the future.


Tyler has been amazing with us during our home buying adventure.

He was always helpful with all our questions (which were a lot!) He was right by our side through the process. I would recommend him to all my family and friends.


JD and Katie did an amazing job selling our home!

Katie and JD communicated with us and held our hands through every step of the process! They explained everything to us very clearly and our home sold super quick. I highly recommend!

Amber Marvin

When we decided in 2020 to list our house for sale it had been 21 years since our last real estate purchase.

Margaret was recommended to us by a mutual acquaintance, so we went with her without shopping around. This turned out to be a good choice. Margaret answered every one of our questions and had very good advice for selling during COVID. If we were to stay in the area, we would have also used her to purchase our next house.

Sid and Cheryl


D. and Katie were amazing!! We were first time home buyers and had no clue really where to start. They set us up with a zoom meeting to explain all the steps to buying a home. Also set us up with an excellent mortgage company!! They helped us find exactly what we were looking for! Anytime we wanted to see a place they made sure we were able to go see it ASAP on our schedule. They were fast and on top of everything!! We closed on our home in 30 days! If your looking to buy/sell they are the people you will want to have help you!:)

Amber Panek

I found Margaret by chance after calling on an ad for a home that had already been purchased.

She then was very patient with me as she spent four months showing me homes. She even wrote up four different offers on different homes until this one was accepted – and I love my home every time I come home after 16 years! I love the added personal touch Margaret gives of staying in contact through Christmas cards ever since. I always felt a good sense of trust with Margaret - and I have recommended her to others!


Margaret, thank you for being awesome and listening to me.

Being so patient through the house buying process was a real blessing and just what I needed!


Tyler was very helpful in finding us our first house to flip.

He was very willing to show us houses even in the rain. He was with us every step of the way and even came to the signing. Would highly recommend him if you are looking for a house.


Carly was absolutely amazing last year when we bought our house!

She was patient, informative, helpful, and just so pleasant to work with! As first time buyers, we had a lot of questions and Carly walked us through every step of the process. I appreciated that she was always easy to get in touch with. I highly recommend Carly and her team!

Susan B.

Margaret has been our agent for both buying and listing properties for many years.

She works hard, and cheerfully. We consider Margaret a friend, as well as a consummate professional. We have also recommended Margaret to family members, who also appreciate Margaret, and have had positive home buying experiences.

Jon and Pam

Margaret, We were extremely pleased with the service, the savings and your expertise in marketing our house.

We really believe that your knowledge of the area was a very big help! We had a choice of all kinds of brokers and we chose you because you honestly seemed to have our best interests in mind. We know we made a very good choice and would highly recommend you to others.

Rob and Colleen

Margaret was so wonderful to work with.

Her friendly and familiar style put me right at ease —from our first interaction till the day we met so she could give me the keys. She was very flexible and worked around my schedule, and was always available to answer questions. She educated me through every stage of the process, making sure I was completely informed and comfortable with the decisions I was making. She is a coach and an advocate, and definitely someone you want to have in your corner. Margaret also put her network to work on my behalf - recommended a great mortgage broker and wonderful home inspector. Ultimately, I believe her relationships with others in the industry was a factor in the home I ended up purchasing, and in getting through the process smoothly and quickly. As I sit and write this review in my new home, I whole-heartedly recommend working with Margaret. Thank you, Margaret for making my home buying experience a very positive one!


Margaret has my utmost respect and admiration as a friend, a human, a Christian, a wife, mother, daughter, mentor and as a real estate broker.

She is my go-to person when it comes to listing my house or shopping for one. Many of my friends have used her services, as have two of my sisters and two of my brothers – as well as my grown son and daughter-in-law. She has my trust!


We asked Margaret to help us sell our home and then find us a new home.

She came to our house and helped us stage it to make it more attractive. She also recommending some changes that we could make that would help in the sale. We began in September and our home sold at the high end of the market the day before Thanksgiving. While looking for our next home, Margaret was very accommodating to our requests to view prospective new homes. Once we found the right home, Margaret was very helpful in negotiating with our buyers and the owner of our new home to get us into an agreement, so all parties were satisfied. Our purchase was on the low end of the market and has been a blessing ever since! Margaret also used her network of mortgage and escrow companies to complete both transactions. I think my wife and I are here in our home to stay. But if we ever decided to move, Margaret would be the first person I would call.

Sal and Deb

My husband and I are so impressed with the help we received in listing and selling our home by both JD and Katie.

They were extremely knowledgeable about the market and other homes in our area. They gave great advice on small things we could do around the house to help increase buyer interest. They coordinated all of the showings, kept us up to date, and expressed great insight on negotiations - we even finished our first weekend on the market with three very competitive offers! Additionally, as we were selling our home during a global pandemic, they took extra care to help ensure the health and safety of our family, and the families touring our home. I cannot recommend Team McDonald enough!

Amanda Bihler

JD and Katie sold my home and helped me buy my new one (all in the middle of the pandemic).

We viewed numerous homes before finding the right one for me and then they went to work making sure everything went smoothly during the closing process. They were also amazing in making sure I sold My home and worked diligently to make sure that I was well represented. They took care of all the hurdles and made sure to keep the process moving despite several hurdles that came up. Highly recommend them for anyone looking to buy or sell

Lauren Giron

James did a great job selling our home in what turned out to be a long process due to the area we were living in.

His brochures, pictures and descriptions were top notch and creative. He was always available when we had questions, needed to discuss strategy, or to follow up with potential buyers.

Nita Timberlake

It is with great pleasure that we recommend Margaret Fast as a real estate professional.

Margaret was our Realtor/ Broker when we relocated from California to Washington a few short years ago. It was a complex move that required considerable coordination and attention to detail. Margaret professionally represented our needs in every respect. Her knowledge of the real estate market and the local area were critical to helping us find just the right home to meet our needs and expectations. Months before we moved, Margaret forwarded numerous listings to us to review online; and then once we relocated here into temporary housing, we visited at least 50 potential homes in person! Margaret knew our concerns and what we desired in an ideal home. She patiently and capably led us through what could have been a daunting, frustrating process. Instead, we immediately felt at ease, knowing that we were in Margaret’s care. Once we found what would become our present home, Margaret very capably represented us throughout the purchase negotiations and escrow. We have been very happy in our home for nearly five years! We are exceedingly grateful to Margaret for the professional care and expertise she accorded us. We are now honored to have Margaret and Gary as our friends as well. Margaret’s knowledge and expertise were essential to us, but more importantly her honesty, integrity, and genuine caring set her apart. She is a gem, and we were truly blessed to have her assistance! You can believe her and trust her…and that says everything!

Dave and Norma

If you are looking for a dependable and effective real estate agent, we would highly recommend Tyler Minton!

He has handled our transaction with highest respect to our financial goals and our wish list for a new home. He is a good communicator, personable and assertive during negotiations. He is very proactive in selling our current home and is as honest as we could ask for. We have loved working with him and will do so again when the time comes!

Camilla S.

We have worked with Margaret on three separate property deals and are extremely happy with her professionalism and her ability to bring these sales to completion in a timely manner.

Thank you, Margaret!

Chuck and Pam

James has been instrumental in helping me build my real estate investment portfolio.

He has a way of sharing his experience and views in a way that is not aggressive and allows you to get clear on what your objectives are. He uses his breadth of experience to help you navigate the home buying process and feel confident you are getting the best possible deal. He has gone above and beyond for me in several situations and I am very grateful to have him as my go-to agent.


James was our realtor to buy our new home and also to sell our existing home.

He did a fantastic job walking us through a very stressful time as he helped to secure our dream home, while walking us through a way to buy that home while selling our existing one. James has a vast knowledge of real estate and we were extremely happy with the marketing of our home and negotiations he performed on our behalf. My husband and I would definitely use James again.

Tracy Munson

Margaret was excellent!

Helpful, caring, knowledgeable and was always ready to view a property. Communication was excellent! We would recommend her anytime!
