I have loved working with Enrico! So much so even I had my sister work with him too! He was willing to work with us when our schedules were crazy, he takes the time to really get to know you. We were picky buyers and as this was our first home he helped make the process more fluid and less stressful. Not to mention as we think forward and plan for the next move, he’s been instrumental in the whole thing.
Whenever my husband and I were concerned about something he seemed to always know how to address it too! His knowledge of homes, the market, and even how to make minor fixes (like knowing why our garage keeps tripping the electrical circuit) is incredibly helpful!
I really will always choose to go with Enrico. We love Enrico for his work but also for his friendship. Honestly, I can say we learn from Enrico not only in home related matters, but just his passion for life and kindness. He is one of a kind!
We will also be using him this year (hopefully) to look at buying a rental instead of investing in the stock market because of our experience with him. If you don’t get it already we love him 😉 – Sarah C.
I can’t recommend Enrico enough. As we bought our home the owners told us, it was the kindness and professionalism of our realtor that sealed the deal. We couldn’t have gotten our home without his experience, professionalism and quick thinking. We love where we live and owe it to Enrico! – Diana A.

Enrico used his many years of real estate experience to help me choose the right condo in the right neighborhood for me when I moved to Seattle 10 years ago. I worked with him again when I sold that unit and purchased a larger unit in the same building. All the transactions settled without issue, thanks in large part to Enrico’s close attention to all the steps and details involved in a successful real estate transaction. I will definitely use him again. – Mary Ann R.

Our purchase and sale process was outstanding! Enrico redefined the term “real estate agent!” He was always ahead of the curve. Enrico spent significant time with us to help us understand what we were looking for in our next home. He is much more than a realtor! He is a friend who enjoys his work by making others happy and satisfied!
James and Karen A
By observing and listening Enrico zeroes in quickly on what we were looking for in a home. This quality expedited the process by leading us to the right home. We could not have asked for a better experience. Enrico was great to work with and a pleasure to get to know. Finding our home was a fun process due to Enrico’s knowledge, experience and his sense of humor.
Yohan and Tara S
Our purchasing process was long, so we are excited we finally found our home, but Enrico made it very easy. We’ll miss spending weekends with him looking at properties. We were comfortable with the flexibility Enrico provided since we were not sure at first what type of property best suited us. Enrico is a smart and patient agent and he made our house hunting process a very comfortable one.
Enrico was always very flexible with his schedule and was willing to meet with me at any time. I Definitely feel comfortable referring him to my friends, family and colleagues.
Sean and Sue M
Enrico was very efficient, patient, unbiased and had a balanced approach. We never felt pressure. He always was helpful and flexible. It was the best introduction to buying real estate for new arrivals in this country!
Our property was an estate sale. He was sensitive to our family loss and allowed my family to process all the information as it arose. He did a great job!
Jen Y and Larry T
Enrico and his team provided exceptional service. They often went above and beyond what they said they would do. They were there every step of the way and were invaluable during our search for a home!
Peter and Anu H
The expertise and advice we received was second to none. We were personally overwhelmed by the professional attitude throughout the whole process. Great job!
Enrico was very knowledgeable of the local market and was always looking our for my best interest while assisting me with the purchase of my condo. He was professional and friendly every step of the way. Enrico never had a problem “going to bat” for me when we had to negotiate with the seller. Thanks SeattlebyDesignTeam!
Jason and Kera N
Enrico and Britt, we absolutely LOVE our house! Thank you for always being available to us and for providing us with answers to our questions. You both made the buying process and our move to Seattle effortless, almost worry free and an enjoyable experience. THANK YOU!!
Enrico, you’re the best. Every day when I walk into my new home I thank the people that made my dream of owning a home come true and you are the person who is mainly responsible for it. You put so much time and energy into helping me purchase my condo and I will appreciate this forever. Thank you!
A friend recommended Enrico to me when I mentioned I was interested in buying a houseboat. I was so pleased with Enrico’s work that I also contracted with him to sell my condo! Enrico’s level of professionalism was exemplary throughout the process. I knew nothing about houseboats and he took the time to help me above and beyond what was expected of him as my agent. He was incredibly dependable, honest, talented in negotiating, and gave very sound advice with both of the purchase of the houseboat as well as the sale of my downtown condo. In hindsight, I can’t imagine going through this fairly complicated process with anyone else. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if there is any other information I can provide you on Enrico.
Paul and Delmar A
We would like to express our profound gratitude for the service you have provided to us. You have been great and went the extra mile over and over! We are so delighted and impressed with the work you have done for us. A million Thank You’s for all the work we noticed and for all the work you did for us behind the scene. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
The following is a brief description of my experience working with Enrico Pozzo. I will attempt to keep it short, but please feel free to contact me if you have any questions; I would be glad to elaborate.
Certain characteristics are critical in a good real-estate agent.The following is my list of essentials and how Enrico satisfied them all:
Trustworthy: Above all else, Enrico has the strongest sense of integrity that I have seen in the industry.
Client Focused: During every stage of the process, I always felt that Enrico had my best interests in mind. Enrico’s relationship-building approach was refreshing in an industry that is often filled with short-term focused salesmen. I feel like I have a close friend, who happens to buy and sell real-estate.
Experienced: The effort of buying a home can be an emotional rollercoaster for many people, and I was no exception. Enrico has the experience to handle those difficult and sensitive situations, as well as alleviate the unnecessary headaches.
Knowledgeable: Very few real estate agents have the experience and knowledge to handle house boats / barges transactions. This market is filled with unique circumstances that demand a knowledgeable agent. Enrico consistently amazed me with his knowledge of the market and his honesty to let me know when he needed to do additional research. Enrico’s knowledge and his vast network of resources allowed him to tackle all the issues that I experienced during my home buying process.
I would highly encourage my closest friends to work with Enrico for any real-estate need.
Once again, please feel free to contact me if you would like any additional details.
When we started looking for our first house, we knew little about the process- it was all very baffling and frankly somewhat frightening. Enrico spent the time with us to make sure we completely understood each part of the process and worked with us to find the exact house we wanted. He worked when it was convenient for us, not just for him, which often meant late evenings and weekend hours. He had a clear understanding of the process, the paperwork and also familiarity with many of the other realtors in the area. In addition, his background as an architect made me feel more secure in the integrity of the houses we were looking at as he examined each house we walked through from a structural and as well as an esthetic point of view.
At our first meeting, Enrico took lengthy notes on the fine details of the kind of house we wanted and then every day from when we met to talk about the house until we settled on one, he sent us new listings and new ideas.
Enrico is a good realtor and a good friend, I highly recommend him to help anyone find the house they desire. He takes the time to really understand what you want and very much is a strong advocate to have throughout the house-buying process. He is truly in the business because he likes people and he likes houses and having that as a motivation makes a big difference.
Thanks, Enrico, for your diligence in helping me secure my dream houseboat! You truly went above and beyond, and I appreciate it. People looking for a home on the water would be well advised to seek your services as you are someone with the expertise and determination needed. Best of luck!

Barry made the home buying process easy to understand, stress-free and fun! He went above and beyond to help us purchase our first condo. We will highly recommend him to others in need of a Real Estate Agent! Our baby even loved him!
I wanted to extend a special thank you for all the extra work you did to make selling my condo happen in such an easy and efficient manner. I felt you went that extra mile and appreciate the professional and ethical way you handled the sale.
Over the past year and a half, Barry has shown me what a true professional is, and has exemplified every attribute of a competent real estate professional – Knowledge, Confidence, Communication, Tenacity and Consistency. Barry has exceeded every expectation I had for my Real Estate Agent.
I have owned and sold four other homes over the years but this was the easiest and most pleasant home selling experience I’ve ever had.
My wife and I were so impressed with his knowledge, easy going manner, and candor that we hired him on the spot. Barry seemed to be tireless in searching for exactly what we wanted in a home. He seemed to make the hard things look easy, and the easy things look even easier. I had heard that purchasing a home a home was one of the most stressful things a person could go through. With Barry, the process seemed to be completely effortless.
You are definitely on my “A” list of good people. Thank you so much for the time, talent and patience you’ve given me these past months. You are simply the best and it is my intention to heartily recommend you to anyone needing a Realtor. I love my home!
Sara and George P
We will miss the Barry updates, for a little while anyway, but just wanted to say thank you for your professionalism and no pressure style. You were about the only pleasant person we dealt with during the entire home-buying transaction.
Barry made the process of being a first-time buyer as easy as possible. He was a fabulous help in all aspects. He even showed up at our signing appointment to assist if needed.
He went beyond the call of duty to sell our Seattle condominium. It was a level of service I had never experienced or expected. He never lost his polite & professional manner. Thorough, quick to respond – the BEST.
Aaron and Kari F
Barry was our buyer’s agent. He was terrific to work with. He took us all over Seattle to show us various neighborhoods since we just relocated. We’d definitely refer friends to Barry.
Barry was great! I felt no pressure, which really contributed to my overall comfort level. As far as real estate goes, Barry is my guy!
We highly recommend working with Chris. He went above and beyond in every way, from getting to know us and what we wanted, to providing advice, like lender and inspection referrals that made the process easy for us. He showed us about 40 homes in a span of 2-weeks covering most of the Greater Seattle area. He accommodated our schedule and really listened carefully to find us our perfect home. He’s knowledgeable about the city and its different neighborhoods. Also, he always pointed out advantages and disadvantages of each property, which helped us make a more informed decision. When we found a place we loved he managed to get a rental contract rescinded, an earnest money extension, and a really good deal with cash back at close! He made us feel safe and taken care of and we would highly recommend him.
Chris made the home buying experience very pleasant and easy for us. I didn’t know where to begin when we decided to start the process. He was the first agent to actually give me a call, instead of an automated email reply. He was so knowledgeable and easy to communicate with. He took us around to properties right away and was very personable and flexible. I recommend him 100%. Awesome experience!
Chris is great at what he does. He is very helpful and flexible. Always available for all your questions and is great in explaining the details. I have learned so much about home buying process because of Chris. The in-depth property analysis, after a tour, is the best part of Chris’s service.
Chris was extremely helpful in guiding us to make our ultimate decision to purchase new construction in Gig Harbor. We were open to a variety of solutions including purchasing a lot and placing a high-end manufactured home, resales, and new construction. Chris provided much needed input to help arrive at our desired outcome. We could not be more pleased at what he contributed. In addition, Chris has a great eye for design and was a great help while picking the model and lot for our new home. His providing us with information early on helped us avoid two significant price jumps which resulted in immediate equity at closing. We highly recommend Chris to anyone interested in a real estate transaction.
Chris was our broker in our search for a Seattle condo. He worked with us for about 3 months and showed us multiple properties, mostly condos but a few houses also.
His general local and local real estate knowledge was very impressive and he sent us excellent, detailed emails about properties that we were interested in. He didn’t shy away from telling us when he thought a property was not right for us, and was very patient in explaining why he hadn’t recommended a property we had found online, and he was always right!
We did buy our new condo through him and will be moving in shortly. We would not hesitate to recommend Chris. You can trust him completely. He will make your search as painless as he can, and also fun in the process!
Chris made the process easy to understand and stress free. He was available to answer all my questions but answered most of them before I even knew to ask. He was very personable and supportive through the whole process. I believe his knowledge and direction resulted in better than average results (117% of asking price)!
Chris was great to work with and I would definitely recommend him to a friend! He drove me around to see 10+ houses in one day alone! Chris is knowledgeable and helped us through the negotiation process. The best part is that he was still available for us even after we closed on our house!
Chris was great at navigating me thru the home-buying process. As a first time buyer I had no clue of many of the processes that needed to be done and he was always very patient when explaining things. He even went out of his way to help me understand the loan terms, insurance terms and so on.
He was very proactive communicating with me and made sure all other parties such as escrow, lenders and sellers were fulfilling their duties in a timely manner.
I think my best experience was this one time I saw a house I liked, on Sunday morning, and he immediately drove there to take a look in order to have a good idea of how to handle the negotiation as well as build rapport with the listing agent. This exceeded my expectations since we had not arranged any time together that day.
In the end we went with a house that was off-market, and Chris did a great job helping me get it with the benefit of having no competition.
I highly recommend working with Chris Kallin. Chris is professional and friendly, super knowledgeable and very communicative. He represented me in the sale of my condo in the Marina District of Des Moines, WA. I was relocating out of country and had a very tight window to sell my property.
You know what I liked most about working with Chris? He is an extremely likable person! In such a stressful situation, he gracefully took the lead so that I could concentrate on other aspects of my move. And we had quite a few laughs! He has an easy going, cheerful style and effortlessly connects with people, such as your potential buyer.
Within two hours of my condo being listed, I was alerted to the first viewing. Within four days, my condo was under contract for over list and closing was within my very short timeline. I had ZERO stress with selling my condo. He and his team walked me through every detail (or handled details as appropriate) which enabled me to concentrate on other aspects of my relocation. In short, if you need an outstanding broker who has sharp negotiation skills and will go the extra mile for you, do not hesitate — call Chris!
We appreciated the outstanding service provided by Chris Kallin of SeattlebyDesign. We purchased our home after a few intense weeks of searching the Seattle market. Our recent move to the city threw some wrenches in the process, but each time we changed the parameters of what we wanted —from downtown, to West Seattle, to the Eastside, and finally Lower Queen Anne— Chris made it work. He spent time chauffeuring us around the city. His smile and kind words of encouragement to see “just one more” paid off for us. After one long day (of many), freezing cold and ready to call it quits, Chris inspired us to see the one last place. We now own it. Thank-you. We highly recommend Chris. He is accommodating and has great first-hand knowledge of the Seattle market.
When I started my house hunt earlier this year, I was mostly a newbie with regards to knowledge of how the housing market works, and had pretty much no idea what to expect! I bumped into Chris at an open house, and he was by far the nicest, friendliest agent I’d chanced upon. I knew right away that this was someone I could work with. He not only offered his invaluable guidance and knowledge, but also genuinely cared about my preferences and requirements. He’s great at reading people, and the most surprising moment in this journey for me was one afternoon while we were out touring a property, he said “I can see you living here. This feels like your vibe.” He couldn’t have been more accurate in his assessment. One week later, I got the house! There was absolutely no way I could have gotten that house if I didn’t have Chris helping me. In fact, there were 34 offers on the property. And our offer, which was a financed (not cash), was the winning offer! Although in retrospect, it sounds like a dream, it was anything but easy. The amount of time and effort and strategizing that he put into strengthening our offer was amazing.
One great thing about Chris is that he is always extremely honest about his ideas and opinions. I remember him telling me “I wouldn’t let you spend that much on that property myself!” when I was getting ahead of myself and trying to convince myself that I could afford a property that I probably realistically couldn’t. It was almost like he wasn’t just doing his job, he actually cared that I made the right decision for myself! Recently, when there was a slight issue with the early closing and a possible delay, Chris handled everything himself, and called me after to make sure I was aware of what was going on. Towards the end of the call he assured me saying, “Do not lose sleep over this, I’ll do it for you.” When you hear something like that from your agent or anyone for that matter, you know you’re in good hands. So, long story short, if you’re looking for an agent who knows everything there is to know about the market, who truly cares about you and what you really want, who has the negotiation and strategizing skills of a genius, you know who to call! I wouldn’t work with any one else even if they paid me to.
Chris is the ultimate professional. I was looking for an investment property from long distance, that had to meet a certain criteria, and he worked diligently to present me with suitable options. After visiting a few properties I had selected, he gave me his honest opinion, and we continued until we found one that we both agreed would work for me. He guided me throughout all stages of offer, purchase and closing seamlessly. If you’re looking for a reliable, consciences, hard working professional, I would highly recommend him.
