Jami Downing Abbey realty

Jami proved invaluable to us in navigating the purchase of our new home.  She took our wishes and quickly found several homes to show us - all meeting our criteria and working around our schedules.  She always made herself available, was present during all of our builder walk-arounds / walk-throughs, and went beyond what I expected from our realtor. Several times we had disputes with our builder about our desires with the property.  Because Jami was there when the issues were first discussed she was able to verify that certain things were agreed upon, and on more than one occasion she directly called the necessary people to help fight our fight. If we buy another home in this area we will definitely ask Jami to help us.  We always felt that our complete satisfaction was part of her thought process - she is the definition of customer service. --Rich and Audrey Adams

It's obvious Jami loves her profession and she's very good as what she does.   Jami sold our previous home and helped us buy our current home.  Her knowledge of the Olympia area real estate market is remarkable! We had very specific criteria, in terms of location, for our new home and Jami was able to find us exactly what we were looking for.  Not only does she have an excellent understanding of the local market, she is an amazing negotiator.  The home we purchased was in high demand, with numerous offers, and Jami was able to deliver with our offer.  Jami is extremely professional, works tirelessly on behalf of her clients, and is an excellent communicator throughout the entire process.  We highly recommend Jami and we'll use her services for any future real estate transactions.    --Ryan and Johanna Johnson

Jami Downing is hard-working, professional and kind. She helped us refinance our home and was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. She is honest, straightforward and an excellent communicator. She can tell when something warrants further explanation, senses when to give you and your partner space to discuss options and knows when to just listen. We hope to use her services when the time comes to buy a new home. She'll work diligently on your behalf and you'll be happy you made the decision to hire her. We recommend Jami Downing without hesitation.  --Mike and Jessica Juergens

I have had the pleasure of buying or selling a house on three different occasions with the help of Jami Downing - I wouldn't even consider using another broker. When people ask me why I would recommend Jami, I usually use words like intelligent, experienced, honest and hard-working. Jami possesses a unique combination of professionalism and genuineness - she will tell you what you need to hear and deliver exceptional advice all the while really caring and listening to your needs. Give Jami a call - you won't be disappointed! --Jake Grater

Two words describe Jami Downing - patient and professional. Jami worked with me on my home search for a long time - partly because of market availability but mostly because I was very selective about what I wanted or didn't want in a home. And when I finally found "the" property, Jami skillfully negotiated with a difficult seller. Patience and professionalism - assets you appreciate in a realtor and qualities personified by Jami Downing.  --Joan Smith

Before we ever met in person, Jami was going above and beyond the call of duty to help my wife and I find a home from across the country. My wife, Tara and I moved to Olympia in the fall of 2011.  We were recommended Jami by Tara's employer and contacted Jami thinking she could help us find a rental.  Jami is strictly home sales, not rentals, but she was happy to help us regardless.  Needless to say, we were impressed and immediately thought of Jami when we started shopping for a house a year later.

We met Jami in person for the first time when we rendezvoused at our first house viewing in the spring of 2012.  Jami met us after our busy work schedules ended, was full of energy and had a fun positive attitude.  We burned through the current market offerings in less than a month and reached a point where Jami had shown us everything there was to offer in our search area.  Eventually Jamie spotted a really great home and notified us literally as it was posted for sale. We were able to view the home the same day and put in an offer less than 12 hours of the house going up for sale.  The rest of the story is a lot of paperwork and inspections.  Jami supported us all the way to closing.  I have nothing but positive things to say about Jami, and would recommend her to anyone looking for a home. --Morgan Misek & Tara Tumulty, 2/17/2013

I was referred to Jami through a friend and am so glad that I found her.  I was going through a very difficult divorce and we needed to sell our house that was upside down.  Jami understood the challenging situation and worked very hard with the bank to get us qualified for a short sale and despite several offers falling through, Jami worked diligently to get our house sold in less than a year!  She also helped us find contractors and organized the work that needed to be done before selling the home.  When I'm ready to buy my next home Jami will definitely be the real estate agent that I will use!  I trust her to do a great job and keep my best interests in mind.  Thank you for everything, Jami!  You made a very emotionally and financially difficult situation much easier.  Jami went above and beyond to do the extra things, such as running comps on a rental property that I own and never hesitating to answer even my silliest questions.  She does an excellent job of explaining all the ins & outs of loans and was able to clearly explain the differences between short sales and foreclosures.  I have already recommended Jami to others who want a quality real estate agent.   --Jennifer Edwards

We met Jami on a whim to buy a house. Turned out that that house did not stand out to us, however, Jami did. When we were ready to buy our first home, she was the first person on our hearts. We remembered her welcoming smile. We loved the time we spent together working on this process. She helped us in every way. She even still helps us to this day. I recommend her to ALL my friends in Washington. She truly understands that this process is a major step in your life and will do anything in her power to make sure that you make the right decision for you and your family. Thank you Jami, you are the best!  --Ronald and Aquila Bernard

Jami has been our agent for both selling and buying a new home. We would, and do, recommend her to anyone needing a realtor or real estate advice. She was always very easy to get a hold of and responded to any questions or needs very quickly. She proved to be very knowledgeable and very willing to do any research if needed. She takes pride in her work and does so ethically, honestly and with great integrity. Thanks Jami!  --John and Laura Baxter

 Wanted to thank you soooooooooo much for sending a copy of our settlement statement. Really appreciated that. You are such an amazing person and I am so happy we had you sell our home.   We will always recommend you to anyone that might need a "superior" agent. :) Thank you again for everything.  --Caramel Wood

Jami helped my buy my house three years ago.  I had asked her to find me a house in a specific area of town and that was within 1 mile of a park.  When she took me on a tour of the homes she selected for me, she showed me the park that was near each one.  She was very patient with all my requirements, and  within two days of showing me homes, I found one I made an offer on.  I am currently looking at property, and Jami is always ready to help found out more about each piece I am interested in.  I would highly recommend Jami if you are looking for someone that will help you find exactly what you are looking for!   --Marion Carey

Jami was originally recommended to me by a friend several years ago and since then I’ve worked with her in both buying and selling of my home.  Jami is the ultimate professional Realtor.  She’s proactive in providing information on every aspect of the property and has done an excellent job keeping me informed in every detail of the transaction.  Her marketing skills are outstanding and she’s been great in acquiring property feedback from other Realtors and buyers that can be used to improve the marketability of the home.  As a real plus Jami has established numerous reputable contacts in the community (septic, inspectors, yard, cleaning, systems, etc.) that takes the stress out of having to have work done on the home.  Whether it’s when I was buying or selling my home, there’s been so many instances that Jami has really gone the extra mile and way past what you’d expect from your Realtor.  She truly cares about her clients and has their best interest at heart.    --Clay Cox

Jami Downing is incredible!  We could not have been more pleased with how kind, hard working, thorough, and professional Jami was with our family.  We love our new home, and Jami allowed us to move into the home of our dreams.  You will be so glad to have Jami Downing represent you in any real estate transaction.  Thanks Jami...we LOVE our home!!    --Rhyan and Kari Smith

We recently worked with Jami as both our realtor and lender, she is so wonderful! We purchased a short sale property and it was a long,long process working with the banks but Jami was so great. She always gave us updates and was so easy to communicate with. There was alot we didn't understand about the process but she was alway able to explain everything. She is very well educated in both real-estate and loans. She was a joy to work with and we would not even consider anyone else in the future!   We would highly recommend Jami if you are looking for someone great!    --Rusty and Megan DeLong

My husband and I were in the market to buy a small house as rental property.  Jami spent months with us finding the perfect little cottage that fit our needs. She went above and beyond once we found our property helping us find people to do repair work and even giving us several names for property managers. I always recommend her and will use her again if we decide to buy or sell real estate. Jami Downing is a real pleasure to do business with.  --Jodi Muller

Jami has been our realtor for two properties (one residential and one commercial). She exemplifies excellence with her personality and competence.  Jami is simply the best. We will never use another realtor.  --Kathleen and Erik Penner
As a lender focused on creating the healthiest scenario for my clients, I find myself very fortunate to get to work with a realtor who shares this same compassion for people.  Jami strives to add a profound long term value to her clients by creating an environment of understanding and listening to their needs.  Jami understands the magnitude of your situation and focuses on exceeding your expectations. With a constant thirst for education and a sharp-shooter's eye for detail, Jami will deliver outstanding results and ensure a transaction that is smooth and a success.
Having integrity in her core and trust in her heart, it is a privilege and a pleasure to work with Jami Downing.  --Cole Linich, First Horizon Home Loans

I would like to thank Jami Downing for making the process of selling our home and buying a new one a very easy process. Jami provided me with guidance necessary to make informed decisions. She is very knowledgeable. Jami made every effort to cover details, throughly explain questions that I had and kept me informed throughout the process. Jami, thank you for checking up on me after I was all moved in.    --Pam Brown, Olympia, Washington

Because of the rise and fall of property values we didn't think we'd be eligible for the great rates we knew were being offered. Through the expertise of Jami and her team we were able to get a great rate and lower our monthly payment.   --Ryan and Rachel Fox


Jami worked tirelessly for almost a year to sell my home. I was in a tough situation with negative equity and Jami came up with a creative solution to get the home priced appropriately to sell. She is an excellent negotiator who keeps her client's best interest in mind at all times, while also helping to bring the buyer's perspective into focus as well. Jami works to get the deal done, is incredibly responsive to all forms of communication, and totally available to her clients. I would recommend Jami Downing to represent you for any home sale or purchase you may be considering.
