We knew Daphna Robon from when she helped us buy our place 4 years before and we had such a great experience with her the first time that it was a no-brainer contacting her for selling our place.
Daphna went above and beyond with strategies for the sale, online marketing, a custom website, 3D models, drone videos, amazing pictures, great stager, video overview of the neighborhood, you name it.
Not only is she super professional with everything she does but she's also super friendly and approachable.
I would recommend Daphna in a heartbeat.

Buying a house is hard. Especially in Seattle. For years I was way too intimidated by the cost and complexity and competitiveness to even consider it, but then I decided to contact Daphna based on a recommendation from a friend, and 2 months later I was officially a first time home owner.
She is incredibly hard working, patient, professional, and communicative. I would send her links to several listings that looked promising and literally within 15 minutes we would have tours scheduled for all of them. She was incredibly patient with me while we drove all over the city looking at different types of properties while I learned about what I was actually looking for. I kind of felt bad that I would flip-flop on places all the time, but she did a great job of assuring me that I could take as long as I needed to until I felt truly ready. In the end we saw close to 15 places and by that time I felt like an expert in not just the process and the financials, but also in what I was looking for in a home.
Once we found the right spot she was persistent and assertive in negotiating the price with the seller, and in under 24 hours we got the price we were looking for and had the final contract written up and ready to go.
She also has a great relationship with her recommended lender, which helped us get as much as we could out of closing credits and interest rates during the closing process.
Daphna's work ethic, punctuality, communication, and patience is seriously some of the best I've ever encountered in another person. You really couldn't ask for more.

Daphna was incredibly amazing at helping us find our first home. She's very attentive and smart. She understands the area and her extensive knowledge of Real Estate and the Seattle market was crucial to us getting the home that we wanted.
She often would help us think through bid strategies and helped us see through first time home buyer rose colored glasses. Daphna never pressured us to increase or change our budget and made us feel as though we were in control of the entire process without leading us astray. She was very giving of her time, often making us feel as though we were her only clients even though I know that was not the case. Thank you, Daphna!

My daughter had learned of Daphna Robon through others who were pleased with her services; I cannot comment further on initial considerations, but I can confirm that she was an excellent choice.
If you are looking for an agent who is intelligent, knowledgeable, pleasant, indefatigable, thorough, and caring, and who will go the extra mile for you, she is your obvious choice.
I wouldn't consider using any other real estate agent in the Seattle area! I trusted her implicitly when it came to reading the small print and pointing out anything that we might have missed. The fact that she is also a lawyer makes her all that much more insightful.
In a word, Daphna is awesome!

I did not know anything about Daphna before I contacted her for purchasing a Condo. Looking back I feel it was the best decision I made. Daphna is a very simple, easy to deal with and very methodical in her approach. Guided me all the way, opined but never imposed her views; understood my requirements, budget constraints and successfully navigated through the maze. I can vouch for her as not just a good professional but also very affable and affectionate person with lot of patience and maturity. That's what a good realtor is all about.

We worked with Daphna when we purchased the property several years ago, so when it was time to sell it, it was a no-brainer to reach out to her again. She was wonderful to work with on our first home purchase and we wouldn't consider anyone else when looking for realators.
Any time we had a question, Daphna was quick to respond regardless of the time of day or day of the week. She gave us great pointers when listing the property and was just a joy to work with.
We would absolutely work with Daphna again and cannot recommend her enough to friends and family.

As a first time home buyer, the thought of starting the home buying journey can be quite daunting. It didn’t help that my timing also coincided with a global pandemic..
Having the right real estate agent to help navigate has not only made the journey realistic, but also enjoyable. Daphna was recommended to me and I would not hesitate to recommend her as well, especially to those experiencing the process for the first time.
Daphna was very patient and thorough with her explanations and helped me made informed decisions. I felt that she had my best interests in mind and genuinely wanted me to find the perfect home and not just try to close a sale. She would not hesitate to suggest walking away from poor decisions and would offer comparables when she felt properties were too overpriced. I felt like I could trust her in helping me make well thought out decisions, and she had no qualms going to bat for me during aggressive negotiations with seller’s agents over offers.
I found her to be adaptative to how I wanted to house hunt and we were quick to find a working strategy. I enjoyed looking for new listings on my own and she was able to accommodate me when I sent her a weekly list of houses I wanted to check out and tour. Oh and she's super good at being persistent, which is a much-desired trait when you realize how unresponsive people can be during the whole process. Id like to think I'm rather capable at navigating tricky processes and doing things myself… but I can’t stress this enough: If you’re a first time home buyer, get a real estate agent and make sure its Daphna.

We had worked with Daphna in purchasing our current home and were so impressed we wouldn't have used anyone else.
We couldn't have been happier working with Daphna. Her follow-through is amazing and she is just great to work with. Everything went off perfectly and we sold our home in less than a week. If we ever want to sell or buy a home again we will only use Daphna.
Daphna is a wonderful person and very very professional. She keeps the other realtors on their toes. It doesn't matter what or when we asked a question, she was right on it. Absolutely a wonderful experience.
We could not have been happier or felt better taken care of. Daphna is amazing.

We were referred to Daphna from a friend of our's who recently purchased a home and he highly recommended her as someone who looked out for her clients and was amazing at negotiating.
We were worried about the home-buying process going into it knowing the challenges most people have finding a home in the Seattle area and honestly Daphna just made it really easy and took away a lot of the worries.
Daphna is just super nice and engaging and she was always willing to work with us and be patient; she clearly explained the entire process clearly from the beginning and coached us through the negotiations. She kept us focused on the things we needed from our house and made sure we were aware of any potential concerns with properties.
Daphna always went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable with our purchase to include working with the sellers to make sure we could get quotes for work before our closing to fix minor house issues.

This is the third transaction that I have done with Daphna. I would say Daphna is a truly excellent agent and would recommend her to anyone I know.

Daphna was accessible, and responsive. She was empathetic, and really went to

I highly recommend Daphna Robon to anyone looking to purchase a home - whether it be your first, or your hundredth. She handled our entire home search, contract and closing process with utmost professionalism and in a very personable manner. She always had time to take our call and also to go see homes on our schedule. She gave us expert advice that truly helped in our selection of a home. I trust Daphna with all my real estate needs. I have truly felt her genuine interest in our needs. Daphna is my broker for life!

Daphna Robon was a true advocate for us. When we first contacted her, we were actively looking to build our own home on vacant land and passively looking at existing homes. Daphna had little experience in vacant land to build on but took incredible initiative to learn about it. Not only did she help us with our land search, she went to the county offices with us to learn about permitting requirements, wetlands restrictions, and feasibility. She actively sought out specialists as needed and was on calls with us and our feasibility company. She far exceeded any expectations we had for a realtor helping us search for land; she went above and beyond what was needed. In the end, we unexpectedly found a house that checked all our boxes. Daphna effortlessly switched gears from the land search and helped us purchase our first home. She was professional and prompt in all communication both with us and with the sellers, lenders, and escrow. Daphna stayed on top of what needed to be completed, kept every party on track, and provided useful advice. She was direct and assertive when appropriate while also being friendly and respectful.

Both times we used Daphna we weren’t the highest offer, and both times we landed the house that we really wanted most. I am just blown away. She was there the moment a home was listed to take us to tour the home. She was there early in the mornings, at night, and on weekends. Her level of strategy is insanely awesome. We never felt like we had to worry about anything because she was always on the ball. And it’s extremely interesting to see how our lives are shaped by the homes she puts us in. We are bless to know her, and we would gladly recommend her to all of our friends and family. Thanks Daphna!

Daphna is the most professional real estate agent I have dealt with. She knows the ins and outs of the business and is quick to respond. Daphna was very patient with some difficult situations we ran into. If I sell/buy again, I plan to use Daphna as our broker. Daphna gave me a wide variety of options when it came to third party resources. I really appreciated this. I have no criticisms of Daphna. She comes highly recommended.

A friend recommended Daphna Robon to us when we decided to move to the Seattle area. She helped us buy our home, and we love it very much. Soon we worked with her again for our investment purchase. Daphna is knowledgeable, understanding, honest and extremely thorough. I was not familiar with this area, and her expertise and advice helped me a lot. She was very patient and helpful, and maintained great communication throughout the entire process. In our latest buying deal, the listing agent was not such a pleasure to work with. Among other things, the seller took the washer and dryer away, which was against the contract terms. Daphna helped me to contact the seller and listing agent, trying any way to make up my loss. Thanks to Daphna, we got a check from the listing agent at last. I will definitely work with Daphna again! Can’t recommend her enough.

This was the first time we had ever sold a house. Daphna’s knowledge and humor makes a stressful, confusing process clear and enjoyable. I can not recommend Daphna enough.

After working with Daphna Robon there is no one else I would rather work with to purchase or sell a home. Period!
Written by Jerry M.
I have nothing but good things to say about the help we received from Daphna! During a house visiting day Daphna kept looking at new houses that came on the market during the day. We hadn't really come across anything really exciting, but she suggested to go look at one more house she found that might fit our needs. I wasn't sure and had already given up on finding something that day, but when we got to the house I instantly knew I wanted to buy it. We put in an offer the same day and 2 days later they accepted our offer. Daphna was very on point during the entire closing process. She explained everything that needed to happen, and was always available for questions. Daphna's great at making sure things move forward, but never put any pressure on me during this entire process. In short, if I ever sell this house, or buy another house, Daphna will be the first person I call!

Daphna Robon first helped us in finding and buying a new home. What really stands out for me in our buying experience is that Daphna really listened to us when we talked about what we were initially looking for, and what we liked and didn't like about the houses she took us to see. Because the were open to a wide area, she took us to see houses up north and in Gig Harbor. We ended up buying the second home she took us to, because she really understood what was important to us and then worked hard to find us a home that matched those items incredibly well.
Once we found the house we wanted to buy, she negotiated well on our behalf, and we've ended up with the house of our dreams! I couldn't be happier or more satisfied with the services provided by Daphna Robon and Choice Gallery Homes. We next worked with Daphna on selling our house in Redmond. She did a great job of coaching us through the prepping and selling process . Because our new home was being built, Daphna was very flexible with us and helpful to us during the long run up to getting the house on the market. Once we were ready to get the house on the market, Daphna did a great job helping us target improvements that would smooth the sale of our home. It was really helpful to know what we needed to do, along with what wouldn't make a difference. Daphna's recommendation of having a pre-inspection was genius, and helped us make fixes that enabled us to breeze through the escrow process without a lot of negotiation back and forth.
Daphna did a great job of easing us through the selling process, which was especially helpful since we had already moved an hour away. She helped us arrange for tradespeople to get the house ready, and when a windstorm came through just before we listed, helped us get someone to come our on very short notice to do a quick cleanup! It's really a tribute to Daphna at that the sales process was so smooth and easy - our house sold on the first day it was on the market, for asking price! During both the buying and selling process, Daphna Robon did a great job of getting our questions answered, addressing our concerns, and soothing our anxiety. I really credit her with reducing the stress for us that is inherent in the process of both buying and selling. She is a great communicator, keeping us in the loop through every step of the process. Daphna is personable and friendly and her follow-through is excellent. I really enjoyed working with Daphna Robon, and would highly recommend Daphna for buying and/or selling a home.

We had just about given up finding the perfect house, but then we met Daphna and our problems were solved. She really listened to what we were looking for and found us the right place within days of beginning work with her. We could also immediately tell that she was very knowledgeable about the market where we would be selling our house.
Turns out our confidence was not misplaced. In fact she sold our house for full asking price (above what we thought we'd get) in just one day. In addition, she helped us manage many details in the run up to the sale, right down to helping us find service personnel for getting the house ready for the market. She made what could have been a very stressful time in our lives much hectic and stressful than we thought it would be. We couldn't be more satisfied with Daphna Robon/Choice Gallery Homes-Professional Realty Services. I would highly recommend the company and Daphna specifically to anyone either buying or selling a home.

As a first time buyer Daphna was the best I could have asked for and I never have to worry about looking for another agent in the future when looking for a new home. It was a long and difficult learning process for me but, she was there 100% of the time in supporting me. She was always patient with me and always put me at ease when it got rough for me emotionally. I also appreciate there was never any pressure from her. She only wanted to find the right place for me and never tried to force me into anything I didn’t want. Early on it was difficult for me to express something I wasn’t sure about but, Daphna was very understanding and soon figured how to best communicate with me in those times. All in all Daphna was more than a pleasure to work with and I will easily choose her as my agent in the future.

Daphna was very helpful with me and went through a tedious process along side me. Very responsible and very respectable, thanks to her I can finally relax in my own home.
