I set out to buy a new home and met with Roy by chance thanks to Zillow. He very quickly figured out my requirements in our first meeting. He was very humble during that meeting (only later on I learned from others that he is the topmost agent in Sammamish and other areas). Roy set out expectations perfectly, new builders will not negotiate on price, but they can negotiate on buyer's bonus. He simplified the whole process of buying, never overcomplicating anything. Whenever I came with a rational question or concern about a lot, he would always make sure he find answers for it. I regret over passing some homes that he proposed in the beginning. He was right about every one of them. Roy made time for me on three instances, at odd hours, juggling between meetings to help me. His referrals are also amazing - home insurance, mortgage, and anything home-related, you name it. Roy continues to interact with us, and my entire family likes him. Like a lot of other buyers, some discount agents reached out to me (who share half of their commission) saying that the new home buying process is fairly easy and an agent doesn't really play a role. After having the entire experience of buying with Roy (his suggestions on lot selection, builder selection, negotiation steps etc.) I can tell the difference between him and a discount agent. I highly recommend Roy, who really continues to maintain the relationship. My friend recently bought a home that Roy listed and based on their entire process I concluded that whenever I sell my home, Roy will be my first choice, his experience kicks in, even more, when he lists. I realized over time why 220 customers have given him a 5-star rating.

If you're only scanning over reviews, then take away this simple fact. Roy Towse is the agent you want to work with. I say the same with unwavering certainty to my closest friends and family. I hope you'll read on to learn why. As first-time home sellers, my wife and I didn't fully understand just how important it is to have the right agent. After working with Roy, we've experienced firsthand the value of having such an exceptional agent, and in a single transaction, he has earned us as customers for life. Roy is unwaveringly professional, yet personable and funny. He's polished but never pretentious, confident but never cocky. He works with urgency, but with a relaxed demeanor that helps alleviate stress. He's diligent, yet never pushy. He's endlessly knowledgeable, yet shares that knowledge freely, and in a way that's easy to understand. He's a powerhouse business partner but feels like a friend. From his seemingly endless knowledge to his unique expertise in the highly competitive Seattle-area housing market, and the plethora of tools he offers (like his Compass Concierge program and Compass Collections mobile app and website), Roy has every aspect covered with excellence, which gave us tremendous confidence throughout the listing and sale of our home. Lest I go on and on, I'll close with this, if you need an agent, do yourself a favor and talk to Roy. You'll be glad you did.

Given the very desirable seller's market here in Sammamish, we were tempted to sell our house ourselves. We're extremely happy we didn't. Roy, with a low-pressure technique, explained current market conditions and helped us plan months ahead when/how to sell our home. For us, we needed to time things perfectly to receive proceeds to purchase a new home out of state and to keep our three teens in our current home through the end of the school year. With his guidance, we were able to maintain a great quality of life throughout the process and receive an offer/terms that far exceeded our expectations. I appreciated his and his team's marketing efforts. The property pictures (and 3D tour) were impeccable and frankly, far exceeded the quality of far higher-priced homes. His no-nonsense and respectful communication style was just what we were looking for in a partner to sell our home. He pushed back when necessary and took our lead on things that were non-negotiable. We valued his expertise and candor. Clearly, he's a proficient negotiator because he was able to secure ideal terms for our sale. Would we have still sold our home if we had listed it ourselves or with a discount broker? Yes. But I fully believe we would have left significant money on the table and assumed far more stress.


We had the pleasure of working with Roy when relocating from California to Washington. We trusted the reviews we read and took a leap of faith when selecting Roy to represent us in purchasing our first home in Washington. We are so glad we did! Roy is not only an excellent realtor but a wealth of knowledge for the area. He was kind and patient as he worked with us selecting our new home. He quickly picked up on what style and type of home we were looking for as we narrowed down the options. He knew to move fast on those homes we liked and provided stealthy guidance on the offer process. Having a professional like that in your corner is essential with the type of market we were dealing with at the time. We wouldn't be living in the fantastic home we are in today without the help and assistance Roy provided! Please do yourself a favor and give Roy a call, you won't be disappointed. Even my teenage son and daughter liked him!

I sought out Roy for his expertise in getting homes sold quickly and for top dollar. He caught my eye because Roy was the highest producing full-service realtor for my market (Sammamish Plateau and Issaquah Highlands) in May 2017. I needed a new agent because my (discount) broker didn't have the chops to help me stage and orchestrate my new listing. I'd spent significant time and expense prepping my home for resale, and I wasn't going to risk leaving money on the table because of poor execution. I felt Roy understood what factors drive listings to be successful and had the resources to showcase my home properly. We listed the home in July 2017. In less than a week, my home received 12+ offers and went almost 12% over asking. Final price was 20% over the original agent's proposed asking price. I would use Roy again, for sure.

Steve & Cassandra L.

Roy was a pleasure to work with! From beginning to end we knew that we could count on him to answer our questions and provide expert guidance. We made the decision to sell our home quickly which resulted in a lot of prep work that needed to be in a short window of time. Roy helped us come up with a realistic game plan and timeline. I was impressed with the level of strategy involved in selling our home. From scheduling to online marketing tactics, our listing received significant. In addition, the photography package was really great and helped our home stand out among the rest. Roy is an excellent communicator so we always knew where our listing stood. We sold our home quickly and were very happy with the outcome. I would highly recommend Roy for your home sale.

Roy is a professional and the best in the business. He knows the Seattle area extremely well. We found a home we fell in love with on our own. Roy was already working on selling our home at the time and we approached him about this dream home we found, thinking it would be a small chance we could get it. He immediately went to work on it and not only got us the home, but also for a price that worked for us. He is true to his word and does his job with integrity. He puts everything into each negotiation he does, no matter how big or small it is. He is great with people. We also noticed how he is respected by other agents which helped make difficult negotiations easier, both on the buying and selling side. We are so glad we found and chose Roy as our agent.

Tim H.

We're so glad we met Roy and had him represent us! We were having a less than stellar time with another agent and in came Roy to the rescue. We interviewed four other agents in the process and he stood out head and shoulders above the rest. He uses high-quality photographers and staff which helped us get our place sold during a difficult time. During the process he was always professional, available day or night, kept us informed all the time, helped guide us through some tougher decisions with regards on how to keep our best foot forward. He has kept in touch with us even after the process and we found a true friend and professional in the industry that we can trust.


Roy helped me sell my property in Sammamish, Washington. He came to our first meeting enthusiastic and well prepared, and every interaction I had with him after that was the same. He proposed an efficient sale process, arranged for the staging and photographs, gave me good and thoughtfully critical advice on finishing the house. The sale went very well, he brought in 6 offers all above asking in just one week. I thought selling the house would be the most stressful part of the process of moving, but Roy was incredible and I am very happy with the results. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell or purchase their home!

Madhuri P.

Working with Roy has been a breeze! From my first conversation with him until the last, Roy has been simply superb. He figured out exactly the kind of home we wanted, was always available to show us the homes and guided us very well with the school districts we ought to look for. Relocating from Texas, we were very lost in how to purchase a home in Washington. But he made us feel every bit at ease. His team is equally efficient and made this whole relocation process very easy for us right from communication via phone/email and paperwork. I highly recommend him for his high quality of work!

Lindsey R.

Mr. Roy Towse exceeded my expectations as my real estate agent. He is very professional and knowledgeable of the industry. Roy assisted us for the sale of our house as well as the purchase of a new one. This process includes many steps and requires the help of many people. Roy was with us every step of the way as he introduced us to other qualified professionals who were essential in the process. I had many questions along the way while Roy spent the time to carefully answer every one in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Roy Towse for your real estate experience.

Mandy M.

Roy was instrumental in helping us sell our townhouse. After things didn't work out with our first agent, Roy was able to turn things around and had our home under contract within about a week of listing it. He helped us navigate price reductions our prior agent had us take and a pending special assessment, all while getting us list price for our townhouse. We could not have been happier with his commitment to helping us not only sell our home but purchase our new home. If we are in the market again, we will most definitely be using Roy. We cannot recommend him enough!

Punarvashu & Richa S.

Roy came to us highly recommended by our agent that we worked with on the purchase of our new home in a different city. He is excellent to work with, very knowledgeable about the area, friendly and kept us up to date with what was happening at all times. We have already recommended him to other people in our neighborhood and will continue to do so. He has a great supporting team also. We needed a quick turnaround on the sale of this home and he made it happen. If we could give him 10 stars we would.

Logan B.

Roy Towse is a true professional. His knowledge of the real estate market, both locally and nationally, is impressive. This was very helpful to us as we sold our house and bought out of state. What also sets him apart from other agents is his knowledge of the closing and escrow process which is quite complicated today. It had been 20 years since we sold and bought a house and Roy's experience and expertise helped us navigate our way to success. We would highly recommend Roy Towse.

If you have high expectations, Roy and his team will exceed them. The most high-quality broker you will ever work with. Truly an expert in planning and strategy. When it came to selling our home, the process was seamless. Outstanding communication at every step along the way. If you want someone to deliver, Roy and team are your people!

Beth C.

Roy was just as amazing to work with from the first day to the last day of our home buying process. He was incredibly fast at responding to any questions we had, and walked me through every concern I had with extreme patience and knowledge. We will continue to do all of our buying/selling through Roy.

Todd G.

Roy was great, I would recommend him to anyone. Didn't have to lift a finger. He and his team created a truly friction-less experience before, during and even after the sale (I forgot to close close out a few things).

Abhishek M.

I have been working with Roy for over 6 years now. Roy helped me sell my house in Sammamish, Washington in 2014 when I moved to California. Roy helped me buy two investment properties in Redmond/Bellevue this year.


Roy’s knowledge of the local area is unrivaled. He is forthright, responsive, creative, and always professional. In this tight market, you need someone with Roy’s acumen to get the deal done.
