Jodene was so wonderful to work with, we really can’t thank her enough for helping us find the perfect starter home. Being that this was our first house and not knowing the process at all, she helped guide us through. She was ALWAYS responsive to the many questions we had while searching for a home for the last year. When it finally came time for us to start the process of buying she helped make it a breeze, while providing straight forward answers and working behind the scenes to ensure everything went smoothly. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience working with her!

We know several realtors. One is even a family member. We have spoken with and looked at houses with many, many agents. Jodene is the ONLY agent, the only PERSON and she became the only FRIEND who could’ve POSSIBLY guided us through this whole mess, period. Nobody else would’ve taken ownership of the process, of our feelings, of our tasks to be done, of the options to be explored and so much more – to the level that she did! Nobody. She prepared us for what she knew was coming next without overwhelming us with whole ball of wax all at once. She kept irons in the fire when there was seemingly no fire at all – only a few fading embers that she had to fan by herself just to keep the possibilities alive. We had a buyer flake out. We had a septic disaster! We had a financial disaster. We had weeks of wasted time by contractors and yet she somehow kept a second buyer active, happy and patiently waiting. Everything came down to the last possible second to be completed and Jodene was always there to take care of the details - from the extensions to be signed that kept hope alive to her physically getting in with us to do the dirty work. She was tireless. She was dedicated solely to our success and she was simply incredible! Not only did she get our house sold for full price despite all of the issues and delays, she also managed to get us into the one and only house that we all thought was best for our family… the only one we “loved” …despite it having other buyers and being taken off the market. Somehow, we still got in, we still got through the torturous loan processes, we still had a place for our stuff despite being “homeless” for a while and we still ended up being quite happy in our forever home for less than full price. Jodene did so stinking much in the background, on the phone, in e-mail - you name it - she was doing everything humanly possible to get us what we wanted and needed on both sides of the equasion. Nobody else could’ve or would’ve gone this far for us. Thank you Jodene!!! …from the bottom of our crawl space to the top of our chimney… thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU!!! -The Norths

Jodene is dedicated, hard-working, helpful, kind, and patient. We couldn't ask for a better agent. She was always responsive and addressed our questions straight on and in a timely manner. We purchased a foreclosure - I have heard from many people that the process of buying a foreclosure is stressful and exhausting. Although the experience was often frustrating, Jodene made it as stress free as she could. She was always available to us and talked us through the process and advocated for us nonstop through the process. We are beyond satisfied with her work. We can't thank her enough for all she has done for us.

Jodene was a great asset to our home buying experience! She is very knowledgeable about the local area, which was huge for us as we're new to the Snohomish county area. She was very patient with our indecisiveness and endless questions. She worked hard to find us the perfect home and was very accomodating with our schedules. Ultimately she negotiated an awesome deal for us! We have already recommended her to others and will continue to recommend her to anyone in the market to buy or sell their home!

This was our second time working with Jodene as a buyer. We sold our condo in South Everett to get some acreage in Snohomish. First, Jodene helped us sell our previous home, netting far more than we ever could have dreamed. This allowed us to search with power and opened may options. Secondly, we found the home we had only dreamed of being able to find. Jodene negotiated on our behalf to get us the home for far less than listing. Before closing, Jodene went to bat again and the deal got even sweeter, allowing us to keep all of the appliances and have some minor work completed by the seller. Lastly, We hit snags with our financing and Jodene stepped up BIG. She spent nearly entire days at our future home to close underwriting's ludicrous requirements. At times that felt completely overwhelming, dark and hopeless, Jodene swooped in to make everything flow smoothly. I wouldn't just recommend Jodene to anyone searching. I'd recommend her HIGHLY. From buying our first home Condo, to buying our now homestead ranch, Jodene has been unbelievably great. I am so thankful to know her.

Having worked with Jodene before as a buyer, I had an idea of what to expect when working with her again as a seller. Little did I know that the process would be so quick, painless and dare I say... exciting. Our home was under contract in less than 48 hours, at above list price. The cruise to closing was smooth and seamless. We were thrilled. We know this couldn't have been done without Jodene's guidance. Her high level of involvement, knowledge, marketing expertise, and negotiating skill delivers a power house of potential when you want to close the deal effectively and timely.

Being a first-time home buyer can be a little intimidating with so many processes to navigate through. At first I didn't even know where to begin. Once I started working with Jodene searching for homes began to have a purpose and I felt like my search was headed somewhere. She made finding homes that suited my wants and needs an absolute breeze as she helped guide me through the entire process. Jodene was excellent at explaining not only what things were happening along the way, but why they were happening and how I can benefit or detriment from them as well. I was always able to reach out and ask questions and I knew they would be answered quickly and with enough detail for me to have a full understanding. She was always quick to jump to bat for me making sure my best interests were looked out for any opportunity she had. Bottom line is that buying a home can be a stressful process, that can at times feel like everyone is working against you. In those times Jodene always provided the stability and trust I needed to remain sane.

Well where to begin, it was not the best year of my life, ended up having to sell my home. Jodene made everything painless, stuck with me and kept me in the loop. She got my home sold and I appreciate everything she did for me. I'll defiantly be contacting Jodene when I decide to buy a new home.

I had the pleasure of working with such a consummate professional as Jodene both as a buyer and a seller. It was Jodenes attention to detail was paramount to the sale of my home, and also assisting me in the professional veiwpoint in the purchase of my new home at 1295 Terrace Place, Camano Island, her knowledge of the local market was spot on. I have to say how much I appreciated her prompt response to my inquiries and if she didn't have the answer at her fingertips, she was dedicated to getting me an answer as quickly as possible, giving me the oppurtunity to make an informed decision. She was great to work with, and was helpful in the transition from one house to another by providing information on the local utilities in the area, and she balances the professional and the human aspect marvelously, I could not be happier with the whole experience and will highly recommend Jodene to my friends and family and will give her a call, if I chose to relocate. My thanks to Jodene for doing all she could to make this painless and enjoyable.

Jodene is fantastic to work with! I have a hectic travel schedule which made the task of shopping for a home in a tough market difficult. She really took the time to understand what was important to me, to ensure that I was able to optimize my time when touring homes. She is very personable, professional and extremely supportive throughout the purchase process and did a great job coordinating with my lenders, escrow, etc. I learned so much from her and am extremely happy to have finally found the right home. Thanks Jodene- I miss you!

I met Jodene originally when she listed a home for a friend of mine. I noticed her professionalism and dedication right away and knew she would be a great fit for our buying needs. She is incredibly intuitive to the needs of her buyers. Based on the homes we were interested in viewing, Jodene found a home she thought we would like. It was the second home we viewed, and we fell in love with it immediately. However, we weren't sure we would be able to swing it financially, because it was a little above our price range. Jodene remained practical, but her unquestionably strong negotiating skills definitely got us into our new home. We ran into a few kinks along the way, but Jodene helped to iron things out in a timely manner. She always kept us informed and was willing to explain anything about the processes that we didn't understand. You will love working with Jodene if you are looking for someone who is practical, friendly, professional, and incredibly knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Jodene to anyone, and would definitely hire her again in the future. She is absolutely wonderful, and we were lucky to have her during our first-time home-buying experience.

Jodene was awesome! In a market were you need to move quickly, or loose the opportunity to buy, Jodene was perfect. She listened to my needs, found a home, negotiated the deal and closed the sale. Again, in this market you need an agent that has the skills and is responsive, or you will just get beat out. Jodene is you agent! If I could have rated here with 10 stars instead of 5 I would have done so.

Jodene Collings is a very experienced realtor that we had to go back to her to sell our house. She helped us with buying the house back in 2012. We were so pleased with everything she did for us that, it was a no brainer that we needed her again. We definitely recommend Jodene to anyone wanting to buy or sell their house.

We couldn't have imagined a better realtor than Jodene. She consistently went above and beyond what we ever expected of her. Jodene did everything in her power to make our experience one to remember, despite endless difficulties with our mortgage company. She remained positive through the process and helped to keep us sane when we were hanging by threads. There were a lot of uncertainties as we went through the process of buying our home, but Jodene was always available to listen and answer questions. We can't even begin to thank her for everything that she did for us, she truly was an amazing example of professionalism. Thanks so much!!! ~Heather and Chris

Jodene was beyond wonderful to work with!! She worked very hard for us getting this house closed and making sure all the details were in order and taken care of. We had the most awful mortgage broker and Jodene worked with him exceptionally well despite this. She would often have information for us regarding our loan that the loan officer hadnt shared with us which made this stressful experience a little easier. I would recommend her to ANYONE looking for a real estate agent and would love to work with her again in the future! Chris and Heather

She listened to us and assisted us with everything we asked of her. She led us thru the maze of paperwork and explained everything to us as we went. I will recommend her to anyone I know that is buying or selling a house. Thank you so much Jodene! Sharon Catlin

Ms. Jodene Hayes of Zip Realty has been my listing agent in the selling of my Edmonds home and my realtor in the purchasing of my Everett home Ms. Hayes has always been attentive to detail answering my many questions. She explained the process in detail which was important to me, as this is the first time I've sold/bought a home. She coordinated the staging and sale of my home. My Edmonds home sold the same day as it went onto the market, expediting my move to Everett in early summer, as I had asked for. The appraisal of my Edmonds home was within $2,000 of selling price at $655,000.00, so she is an expert at pricing the value of a home. She spent several hours showing me homes that were tailored to my particular needs and was able to eliminate the homes that wouldn't suit me. I was, and am completely confident in her guidance. I would recommend her to anyone asking for a realtor. She is organized, patient, efficient and capable. She returned every phone call and email within a half an hour. This made the moving experience go smoothly for me, and I appreciate her services greatly. Kathleen O'Leary

This is the second home we have purchased with Jodene as our guide. She was very quick to grasp our goals, wants and needs and make them the priority so as not to waste time viewing homes that would not make the cut. She takes our search very seriously and in the current market place that is extremely important. Jodene has also helped us to sell a home in the past and her experience and knowledge of both sides of the process have no bounds! She also consults with colleagues as well to ensure that she is helping us to make the best decisions. We would never consider partnering with anyone else to buy or sell a home! She is simply wonderful and such a pleasure to work with. Now that the purchase is complete, I am missing her daily contact. Sincerely Tereasa Woods

She walked us step by step throught the entire process and communication was very timely. She was definitely our partner in this process and was as excited as us in the end! She worked late into the night negotiating on our behalf and we could not be more pleased with the results. I will be highly recommending her to friends and family! Terry Woods

She was easily accessible through all means (phone, email, txt, and in person) to answer any of our questions and doubts through the whole process. Her communication skills are great and kept us well informed about how the process was going. She is very trustworthy. Due to her extensive knowledge and great negotiating skill we ended up getting the house we wanted at a really good price.

Jodene was very good at following through with questions we had concerning our purchase. She is very punctual, organized and best of all did not try to talk us into buying any particular house. She left the buying decisions up to us with a very neutral sales approach, which suited our tastes well. Since a house is such an expensive purchase for most individuals it is nice to work with a realtor that gives us honest answers to our concerns. Would use her again, and would confidently recommend her to anyone needing a good realtor.

Touring homes with her was fun, and seemed to be just as much fun for her. When questions came up she researched and asked until answers were found. Once we found our property she made closing a painless easy experience. We'd work with her again in a minute. Thanks Jodene!

Although she did have to become a little more pushy in the end, I did not always feel my interests were most important. I think the issue is that Jodene is very safe in her approach and I would have like a more assertive agent in coordinating my needs. Jodene did put in a lot of effort in the end, my concerns are likely more about style.
