"We are pleased to give Alice Holmes, Broker, a rousing recommendation following her assistance in purchasing our home in Eugene. From our first contact, we felt she really listened to our specific requirements and valued our time, only showing us homes that would meet our needs and pointing out the many specific features and potential areas of concern of each home and location. Alice was extremely responsive to our texts, emails, and phone calls - we never felt we weren’t her first priority. She completely understands the local real estate market and trends. She demonstrated her expertise and knowledge throughout the process, especially during the negotiation phase, when she identified mistakes in the sellers’ paperwork. She is calm under pressure, friendly, upbeat, and has a great sense of humor. Additionally, she referred us to other quality professionals, e.g., inspection service, loan broker, who have exhibited a similar level of service and competence. We cannot highly recommend her enough."

"Working with Alice to buy a home was a fantastic experience. She went out of her way to understand just the kind of home I was looking for, and helped me sift through the many possibilities to find the perfect place for me. Doing a walk through with her was always a learning experience because she has a lot of knowledge, and a keen eye. I moved here from out of state and was really nervous about how that would work, but Alice made it easy. I absolutely recommend her to anyone who's looking to buy a house."
"Alice is amazing. We had to sell my brother-in-law’s condominium. We live out of state and his condominium was a mess. He was a hoarder and had never done anything to improve it. She arranged for a cleaning crew, she went through everything and shredded boxes and boxes of papers. She also arranged for someone to sell items that could be sold and trashed everything else. She arranged for new flooring and had the condominium painted. During this whole process she worked with me and kept me informed. She went above and beyond her regular duties to help us out. The condominium sold within a few days. I would highly recommend her for any Real Estate needs."
"Alice is the best. She is professional, experienced, very kind, helpful and overall a great person. Extremely patient and understanding. I could go on and on about how I enjoyed working with her."
“Alice found a perfect home for us after we gave up on ever finding a suitable property in Eugene. Prior to our recent retirement we decided upon Eugene as our ideal location to settle down. We contacted Alice during our search and she understood what we were looking for. We had a clear picture of what we wanted but after several months of searching we weren’t able to find exactly what we wanted so we decided that maybe we should look at other cities. Even though we had decided to move on, Alice kept searching for something that would interest us and to our great surprise introduced us to a new build project that was exactly what we were looking for. We’re now in the process of designing and building our new place and will always appreciate the extra steps Alice took on our behalf. We cannot recommend Alice highly enough.”

“Alice was wonderful! Above and beyond wonderful! She made sure that everything looked perfect in our house for showing; she did a fabulous job of pricing it to draw exactly the right amount of interest; she helped us navigate understanding all of the intricacies of each offer that we got; then she made sure everything went through. When the buyer's lender delayed the purchase, Alice was advocating for us every step of the way and helped us to not lose the home we were buying out of state (even though that subsequently got delayed). I was so happy for the work that she put in to make the selling of our home successful.”
“Alice, It has been a true pleasure to work with you and we are forever indebted to you for your expert guidance, advice and consummate skill. Words cannot express our appreciation."

"In our recent house search, we found the Windermere agent, Alice Holmes, to be very pleasant and easy to work with. Alice was a good communicator and frequently sent us multiple listings that were possibilities. She was honest in her evaluation of houses that had our interest and was unfailingly willing to meet at our convenience. Her knowledge of community resources has helped even after the house was purchased!"

"As first time home-buyers, we have had the privilege and excellent fortune to work with Alice Holmes of Windermere Real Estate. Alice made our experience a pleasurable and fruitful one that has surpassed our expectations. Alice provided us with a level of service and dedication exceeding that of an average realtor. We have terminated relationships with realtors in the past because we were not satisfied with their level of dedication, competency, and/or integrity. However, we were very pleased with Alice, who was exceptionally industrious, proactive, conscientious, patient, and thoughtful throughout our six weeks of almost daily activity, communication, and newbie questions. Alice was consistently engaged, thoughtful, and attentive, regularly demonstrating a great capacity for detail throughout the entire home purchase process. Alice took us under her bright and capable wings in swiftly arranging home showings, successfully negotiating with the seller's realtor, smoothly coordinating inspections, and helping us with necessary contractor estimates. Alice helped us navigate through a complicated maze of paperwork and preparations. She also patiently answered our many questions and quickly responded to any concerns that we had throughout the entire process.
Alice genuinely enjoys helping people and is skilled at coordinating respectful, considerate, and effective interactions among the various parties involved throughout the home-buying process. Alice's negotiating savvy ultimately helped us clinch the deal on our dream home amidst an exceptionally fast-paced and competitive sale process. She was consistently collaborative, upbeat, professional, forthcoming, full of wise guidance, and made every effort to respond to questions and requests that arose along the way. Alice worked hard to ensure a smooth and seamless process for us with transparency and integrity from the very beginning. We cannot say enough positive things about Alice. We enthusiastically recommend Alice Holmes as a trustworthy and truly dedicated realtor/broker and have absolute confidence in her ability to transform a potentially complex and daunting home buying process into an uplifting and deeply satisfying experience. Now comes the really fun part as we enjoy our beautiful first home! We are deeply grateful to Alice and her supportive and savvy team at Windermere Real Estate, thank you so much!"

"Alice is wonderful to work with. My home sale was complicated, as I was selling my property from 2,000 miles away and during the early stages of the pandemic. Alice and her team were incredibly helpful... far beyond what I could have hoped for. If you're selling your home in Eugene, I'd highly recommend Alice!"
“We appreciate all of your hard work! You made the experience of buying our first home enjoyable and fun! Thank you!"
