helping you buy

Buying a home is a truly important decision, you need a coach, strategist, advocate and cheerleader all wrapped in one, someone who gives you valuable advice and helps keep you sane during the process. I promise you powerful, ethical representation, well-researched information about the true benefits and drawbacks of each property. Assisting my clients and friends with properties since 2001, I know the neighborhoods of our region intimately and will help you make a smart choice. Remember, your home is an investment but also a place that feeds your spirit, inspires you and helps you relax after a long day.

helping you sell

Many sellers have questions, might feel a little overwhelmed and don't know where to start. Having sold many homes, I will put your mind at ease and give you great suggestions for how we can prepare and present your house to make it look its best. Many of my ideas are practical, common sense, things that don't take a lot of time or money. The week before listing, I procure high-definition photographs, video and 3D Matterport tours so we look enticing to people viewing us online. Then, we hit the market! I orchestrate every step of the process with a strong goal to minimize your frustration and maximize our results.



"Vince found my dream home and sold my former home with a combination of personal qualities and skills rarely found in the same person. Rarely do you find someone is who extremely task-oriented, skilled and efficient, while simultaneously building casual and calm working relationships. On the business of getting tasks done he is very driven; but on the people side, his confident, fun, and easy-going nature relaxes what can often be a stressful period in people's lives. He is generous with his effective and empathetic listening skills and is an artful and fair negotiator. Vince's work is influenced by a set of life values that encompass both his business and personal life. He truly values helping others, justice, community stewardship, and trusts that abundance comes from giving. Like many of his former clients, I consider Vince a friend and someone I will know in this community for years to come. If you don't know Vince and are considering working with him. I trust very much that you will experience the same positive experience as many others have during the often very sensitive and momentous process of buying and selling homes"

"Vince Decker, our exceptional realtor, came highly recommended to us, and now we understand why. Throughout our home-buying journey, his patience and guidance were truly remarkable, helping us explore Seattle's neighborhoods with attention to our preferences. Vince's negotiation skills secured a fantastic deal on our dream home. His thoughtfulness in helping us connect with each neighborhood made the process all the more enjoyable. After this outstanding experience, we're eager to recommend him to anyone seeking a dedicated and skilled realtor. Thanks to Vince, we not only found our perfect home but also gained a reliable resource for all things real estate."

- Amna M. & Justin C.

"Our realtor Vince is a very unique person who made our homebuying experience as enjoyable and stress free as possible. From the first time we visited, he embraced with vigor the needs of our family and provided us with an excellent variety of home options, often seeming to know about the best listings even before they reached the market! He wasn't afraid to give us objectively honest assessments of the benefits and drawbacks of each home and neighborhood, and at no point did we feel pressured or pushed in any direction. Vince possesses a wealth of knowledge of communities, transportation, restaurants and real estate. Within 10 days, he had helped us locate our dream home, truly saving us time and money. His warm personality also put the sellers at ease immediately, and he chose the exact approach to help us get the house for the price we wanted. Vince is a diligent worker, a gifted communicator and was extremely responsive to our needs and questions. During evenings, weekends and holidays, he worked tirelessly to move our purchase process along. Vince went above and beyond in representing our needs all the way through to the end: he was not only literally by our side during the financing, inspection and settlement phases, but he also helped us connect with contractors, served as a furniture broker between us and the sellers, and came up with creative win-win solutions when any challenging issues arose in the transaction. We greatly benefited from his honesty, warmth and sense of humor, and we would highly recommend him to anyone. Thanks Vince!"

- Susannah & Aashish Dhamdhere

"Vince exceeded our expectations. Super responsive. Consummately expert. I've rarely (if ever?) felt so confident in another professional's ability to manage an important and complex process. Vince also so ably and kindly coached us in our own role--so important to the real estate process. Highest recommendation."

- Thomas Gerson

"Vince is a magical unicorn among real estate agents. My husband and I started 2021 with a foggy idea of maybe buying a house. We had no idea where to even start and no clue what we were in for with the wild pandemic market. But little did we know, we had a secret weapon in Vince. He took our rough outline of house & location requirements, showed us what was possible, and helped us figure out what we were truly looking for in home. And while our friends were dragging themselves to hundreds of open houses and putting in dozens of offers but still not landing anything, Vince showed us about a dozen homes and landed a deal on our 3rd offer! Incredibly impressive in 2021! Thanks to Vince, we’ll be ringing in the new year in our stunning dream home as first time homeowners!"

- Cianna and Connor Bedford-Petersen

"Vince is awesome! He helped us buy our dream home during a wild and crazy seller's market without a bidding war. He's candid, transparent, and upbeat. He guided us through the process while giving us lots of space to make decisions that work best for us. It's a fine balance the way he presents facts without pressure. He's highly responsive and referred us to other folks that were also very helpful. Vince has integrity and he's earned loyal clients in us! I highly recommend him."

- Cassandra Rae

"Vince has been our real estate agent for the last 14 years. He's helped us with the purchase of 2 homes and the sale of one. If you want someone who is down to earth, dependable, available when you need him, and extremely knowledgeable about real estate, Vince is your guy."

- Matthew and Megan Burger

"Vince Decker made it possible for us to move from far away to a location unfamiliar to us. In less than four days of house hunting with Vince, our offer was accepted for the perfect home for us! Vince is a genuinely warm, caring person. He communicates exceptionally well, provides timely information, and stays in close contact. We are truly very grateful for all he has done for us. He has changed our lives. Vince can work magic!"

- Susan Christensen

"We were in the delicate situation of selling our condo in Seattle while living in Boston, and without the ability to settle things on the ground due to COVID travel restrictions. Having Vince represent us took the anxiety away of not being there, he took care of everything remotely and made us feel present for everything! We had the added anxiety of a mortgage contingency kicking in after a prolonged period, and Vince was amazing at turning things around and re-listing, and finding a new buyer in no time! Vince was extremely responsive even with the time difference, and made it very clear that he had our back. Will definitely use his services again if we ever move back to the Seattle area! "

- Nicole Frahm

"I am so grateful to have had Vince assist us with the sale of our Seattle home. His deep wisdom from many years of experience in real estate was evident in how he graciously listened to our questions and concerns, and offered steady guidance and support throughout the entire process, sharing his expert advice along the way. He was always on top of things and provided us with a sense of grounding and anchoring in the midst of the chaos that can arise with selling and moving. His warmth and caring demeanor was always present, and the people he collaborated with for photography and staging shared the same caring and professional values. The whole process was so smooth and stress-free, and I couldn't imagine going through all of that without him!"

- Sam Blackman

"My partner and I were lucky to meet Vince in one of the first viewings and immediately felt the connection and understood his depth of knowledge about the area and agent community in Seattle. In a competitive market like Seattle, having an agent like Vince is a must as the competition is high and neighbourhoods have a different price range for putting the right offer to win. He listened to us and paid attention to our preferences and was patient to explore many options and neighbourhoods till we found a perfect home to our liking. Vince is a great communicator, very responsive and flexible to work under all condition. He takes every offer seriously and puts his best judgement to help. My favourite part is you can be straight with him and manage the offer as it's comfortable for you. We would like to stay with him if we ever buy another property or sell ours in the future."

- Fereshteh and Reza

"Vince was extremely helpful throughout all aspects of selling our house, from the beginning - from making recommendations on improvements, to arranging photo shoots (including a drone view!) and writing an apt and winning description for web sites; and through to the end - arranging showings, keeping us updated, and helping in the escrow process. He also was able to provide excellent recommendations in numerous categories such as contractors, cleaners, etc. In addition to Vince's professional expertise, his pleasant personality was clear from our first encounter. Given all of the professional and personal factors, I would give Vince the highest recommendation."

my remote travels

I love people and have traveled all over this planet of ours for more than 30 years. On my often solo journeys, I have trekked among ancient Sri Lanka sacred temples, beaches and indigenous Veddah culture, explored remote post-tsunami Aceh Province, Batak culture, orangutans, komodo dragons and the origin of the best coffee on earth on Sumatra and Flores Island-Indonesia, walked through the jungles and vibrant city of Paramaribo, Suriname. I've lived alone for ten days with the Waorani native tribe in the Amazon Jungle of Ecuador, traversed the lemur-filled rain forests and baobab jungles of Madagascar, rock climbed Hat Raileh, Thailand on amazing jagged limestone cliffs that rise above the Andaman Sea. I've stood at the edge of the biggest single-drop waterfall on earth, bathed with native Amerindians in remote swimming holes and drank great rum in the remote Rupununi area of southern Guyana, journeyed around wildlife-filled Tanzania, listened to bizarrely beautiful music on a rooftop in Zanzibar and sipped mint tea and shopped for rugs in chaotic medinas in Morocco.

I've ridden many hours riding rickety buses on bumpy roads and hiked steep mountain paths to meet (and be tattooed by) a 102 year old living legend traditional tattoo artist woman in a former headhunter village deep in the mountains of Northern Phillippines. I've hitchhiked just for fun from Sapporo to Shiretoko National Park in the far north of Hokkaido, Japan, played beach volleyball with locals and watched matches at the biggest soccer stadium in the world in Rio de Janeiro, canoed in to live with the Embera Tribe in the Panamanian Darien Jungle, had a solo walkabout for one month in remote areas of Ethiopia where I went to the hottest place on earth, stood on the edge of a bubbling lava lake, slept on the ground with 3,000 other locals at the ancient Timket celebration in Lalibela.

I've traveled alone to prehistoric cave paintings, vibrant camel markets and went swimming in the Gulf of Aden in peaceful Somaliland (a self governing area that almost no one has ever heard of). I've gone off the grid with the Kogui indigenous tribe of Colombia, trekked without a plan across isolated parts of Bangladesh and Assam and Meghalaya, in Northeast India. I've traveled solo to the amazing High Himalayan Mustang region of Nepal and taken rickety buses to little settlements and islands on the Mozambique Indian Ocean coastline. I speak Spanish to some real estate clients, and discuss trips to Africa with others. These annual walkabouts continually recharge my spirits and help me have genuine and interesting connections with people I work with.
