What Connie's clients say . . .
March 1, 2013
Hi K- and S-,
We are sad to hear you are moving, but understand the reason - being near your family
Last year we worked with a wonderful realtor to sell several of our rental homes - Connie
Bovee with Windermere/Stellar Group in Vancouver. Connie is very knowledgeable, experienced,
professional, honest and straight-forward. I enjoyed working with her and she does a great
job with follow-up and communication with her clients. Connie did a great job for us and we
will continue to work with her in the future. We highly recommend Connie Bovee!

Windermere's Customer Service Response
How would you describe the service you received from your agent?
I contacted Connie Bovee for help in finding and purchasing a home because I had worked with her as the buyer's agent
when selling a home in the past and was impressed with her experience and professionalism. During my current process,
Connie answered all calls and email messages promptly, throroughly, and professionally. She took initiative in making
suggestions, seeking properties to show, and explaining the search and purchase processes. She was friendly flexible
and encouraging in every way. Also, her proven resources for other help including mortgage service, home inspection
repairs, painting, and color consultation were very helpful. I am again impressed and pleased with Connie's service and
would definitely recommend her to others.

Connie has represented us several times as a buyer and a seller over the
last 15 years. She is such a kind person, yet she will speak up if she feels
you are not considering things that are truly in your best interest.
In the last year she also helped us with deciding whether to keep a house
as a rental or to sell. Since she and her husband have invested in/managed
numerous rentals during their time in Clark County she was an excellent
resource for that information as well. She sent us links for leases and other
valuable documents we needed for a lease termination/eviction and told us
about the Landlord's association web site as well.
Connie keeps up with the market trends and can help you with ideas on how
to get your house staged and looking it's best for hitting the market looking
it's best. Her negotiating skills are excellent and she will not lie or try
to overprice your house just to get the listing.
Recently she helped us sell my parent's condo after their passing. The
renter was dragging his feet on getting out of the condo. Since I was out of
state and couldn't handle things personally, Connie stepped in and helped
improve the communication with the renter in order to get him out of the
condo in a timely manner before closing.
Connie's ethics are unequalled. She always does "the right thing" and
wants/expects her clients to do so as well. I have been buying and selling
houses for 36 years and watched my parents do it for many years before that.
Yet I have learned so much from Connie over the years. Connie is the kind of
realtor that you will never lose touch with once she has represented you
whether she helped you buy or sell.
I hope we are in our "forever" home, but if not I would not hesitate to
use Connie's services again.

Susan and I (and members of our extended family) have worked with Connie in several real estate transactions
over the past 10 years. While there are many things that we appreciate about Connie (e.g. integrity,
professional knowledge, and continued service after completion of the transaction), one the most impressive
characteristics is her desire to act in the best interest of her clients even if it means not making a sale
For example, we initially decided to list our property with Connie due to a number of personal factors,
including our daughter dealing with a serious medical condition. At the time, we thought this was the
best decision for our daughter and our family. However, three months later, our circumstances changed
and we changed our minds. We felt so bad making this decision because of the time and energy Connie
had invested in helping to prepare and market our property. However, Connie expressed no hesitation in
agreeing with our decision and firmly stated we should do what was best for our family.
Later in the year, circumstances changed again and we decided (supposedly for the last time!) that
“downsizing” would be a good decision for financial and family reasons. Connie listened as
we explained our reasons, asked excellent and insightful questions to help us confirm our decision.
Unfortunately, we listed the property just as market conditions began to deteriorate. Connie was
very open and honest when explaining how the changing market changes would impact our sales price and
purchasing options for a new home. Over the next six months, it became apparent that selling the
house in the current market would not be a sound financial decision. Connie advised us to take the
property off the market and wait until it stabilized and recovered. It would have been so easy for
Connie to just focus on making the sale, but that is completely opposite of her business and personal
philosophy. Connie will never compromise what is best for her clients in return for a short-term
financial gain (i.e. the sales commission).
I imagine it is tough economic conditions such as these that truly separate excellent, service-oriented
career realtors from ones that are just in the profession to try to make money. Connie has our utmost
respect and that is why we always refer clients to her. No one we have referred has every experienced
anything other than superior service. If you are contemplating selling and/or buying a property,
Susan and I can confidently state that working with Connie will be the best decision you make.

Thanks again for the superb service in helping me relocate to my new home. I can't tell you how much I appreciate all you have done to make this transition go as smoothly as possible.
If and when you are in the area, I would love to have you drop in for a cuppa.
We have had a lot of experience buying home, both together and in prior "lives" before we got together.
So, we speak from some experience. The professionalism, attention to detail and timeliness of all three of you in completing
our recent home buying spree was extraordinary. Each of you has shown in your part of the transaction that you
are at the top of your profession. From our initial contact with Connie on the phone through signing the last
document in Leslie's office with a liberal sprinkling of repeated contacts with Angelique to make sure that the loan
process was timely and accurate, we felt as if we were the most important people in your lives. For this we
On the other side of that coin, you are also the only three people that we know in Vancouver. So, for the near term,
we plan to rely on your experience and knowledge of the local community as we settle into our lives there. Hopefully, we won't become pests.
Thank you all, again!
