Thank you SO much for your amazing service and support. Alex, Jacob, Shonna and their entire team LOVE what they do and this makes them phenomenal, individually and as a team. Their team was pivotal in the transformation of my sister & brother in law’s well loved family home to a beautifully staged market ready house! Their crews were prompt, efficient, communicative and professional. This all resulted in their home selling for way above the listed price. We highly recommend Black & Pickett!

These guys are AMAZING! Jacob, Alex, Shonna and the whole Black + Pickett team really are an outstanding, professional, talented group. They sold our awesome, yet slightly dysfunctional oddity of a house in 6 days! They were an absolute pleasure to work with. They staged our house beautifully and kept us looped in throughout the whole process. If you are looking to sell your home, CALL THESE PEOPLE!!!

Jacob and his team are the best in the Pacific Northwest. .the BEST! They sold my son’s home and my mother’s home. ..they both sold very quickly.

He wants to make sure you get into a property that is the right value, the right fit, and in the right neighborhood for you. As you see houses, he’ll point out the pros and cons of each place which gives you the complete picture when thinking about a home purchase.

I really appreciated all the hard work Jacob and his team did for me and if I’m ever one the market again, I’ll definitely use them.

Excellent team! They go far and beyond to find the perfect home for you! Fully knowledgeable and educated on current market trends and everything there’s to know about homes! From foundations, non/curable assets to different market types (investment, multi-homes, single homes, etc…); they have all covered end-to-end!

Selling a home is no easy feat. We interviewed a few realtors and the minute we met Black + Pickett, we knew it was a great match. Alex, Jacob and Shonna staged our home perfectly, the landscaping was thorough and beautiful. The professional photos turned out far better than we could have expected. The house sold quickly and for much more than we would have anticipated when we first started down this venture. This team exceeded our expectations and we can’t wait to begin looking for our next home to purchase with this great group by our side.

We are a couple who wanted to downsize to a condo after living in a Maple Leaf house for 30 years.  Muna helped us find a new place and sell our old place.  She is a consummate professional: very hard working, smart, always with our interests in mind.  Nevertheless, when looking at condos she occasionally would show us something “outside the lines” of our rather stringent specs—and it is one of these that we now proudly call home!

She also knows how to sell a house—again always with our interests in mind.  She put together a team of professionals who prepared (at very reasonable rates) our Maple Leaf home for sale, and pitched in herself at times.  We are content with what we paid for our condo and could not be more satisfied with what our house sold for.

Thank you, Muna!

John is was a fantastic advocate and dedicated to finding the perfect home for us. We saw many homes and found our wonderful house with John’s keen eye and quick action. John’s local knowledge combined with his experience is what really makes him a great realtor. We have been in our home for a little over a year, absolutely love it and the neighborhood.

Thank you John!

Muna helped me buy my dream home on the lake. She did a great job! She is trust worthy and without a doubt the best in the industry.

Shane Bumbalo

John was awesome for our first time home owner buying experience. He’s patient and lead us every step on the way and was always there for many questions we had. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone that needs to buy a home!

Joey D. & Patrick C.

My experience with Muna was fantastic. Muna managed my investment property for many years. I will certainly keep her in mind for all my Real Estate needs. She’s well established in Seattle and is very knowledgeable of surrounding areas.

Mary Mooney

Simply put, I would not have my house without Muna.  By far the best representative for a buyer in Ballard.  Muna had the right relationships with the right people to pull off the impossible: She negotiated an off market sale, on the most desired street, in the fastest growing town in Seattle.  In a word. She was a miracle worker! I cannot praise her enough.


I had the pleasure of working with John this summer as we purchased our home in the Arlington, WA area. He was very personable and worked tirelessly to ensure that we were taken care of every step of the way. I couldn’t be happier with John and would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to buy a home in our area.

Randy P.

I am very thankful that Muna helped me through the process of listing my home. I had peace of mind with her every step of the sale.

John was great! He helped us buy our first home. John was very responsive to our inquiries about houses on the market. He was always willing to research the home improvement costs for properties we were interested in, which was helpful for us as first time home buyers. With John’s help we were able to buy in the neighborhood we wanted, and for an incredible price. We are very happy with our home, and we would definitely recommend John to anyone!

Muna was in charge of managing our rental house for the past 5 years. Since she has taken the responsibility of overseeing the property, we have had no issues or problems. It has been particularly comforting for us, as we do leave town frequently, to depend on her. Later Muna changed careers from a property manager to a real estate broker. We decided to sell our rental house and contacted Muna to represent us. Based on our experience with Muna, we would highly recommend her for all your real estate needs.

Richard and Barbara Mead

It’s easy to give Muna a 5 star rating!  We have known Muna personally for over a decade, and have worked with her on several projects.  Most recently, Muna’s wide network of Seattle connections came to her with a corporate housing need and she quickly connected them and us. Within two weeks, we had a lucrative short-term corporate rental client that closed just days after we purchased a new building in Ballard.  We could not have planned that to happen, and it happened because of Muna’s connections and our relationship.  Highly recommended and trusted!

Jeremy & Rachel

This is the second house John has worked with us on and I can’t say enough about his professionalism. He is a motivated agent with your satisfaction at the top of his priority list. When it’s time to get your house on the market he pulls all of his great resources together and sets the wheels in motion for a quick sale. Both experiences have been amazing, with our houses selling at their first possible availability at over-list price! There is definitely a lot to be said for an agent who can set you up for success and i’m happy and confident to refer him to any and all of my family and friends for any of their buying or selling needs.
