Have a VA loan?

I specialize in helping active military and veterans with their real estate needs. Because VA loans are unique, it’s essential that military borrowers work with an experienced agent who understands the program’s special requirements. You’ve served our country proudly, and now it’s my honor to serve you.

Buy a fourplex for nothing down

Did you know that you can use your VA loan to buy multi-family investment properties … for potentially zero down? Listen in as my colleague Amy Remington from Guild Mortgage and I explain how, with all the stats and financial data you could ever hope for.

Anders is a uniquely effective realtor. He gave us input on what to do to best show the character of our house and attract the most potential buyers. Along the way, he kept us up to date on developments and got back to us quickly when we had questions. It all paid off – we got eight offers within three days, all of them over the list price. His advice was always well thought out and driven by experience. His relationship with us was, from beginning to end, collaborative. The result: we sold our house for 20% over our asking price!

– Beverly Smaby, North End home seller

Anders knows his stuff and is helpful at every turn. Although I wanted to work with him because of his track record and positions in public service, what I came to truly value is Anders’ knack for level-headed communication: he’s super responsive, with exactly the right level of detail. He will elicit your priorities and preferences, and then act quickly and skillfully on your behalf. Stop reading this and give him a call!

– Brian Kerr, West Tacoma home owner

Anders is an expert in his field, and his counsel saved us tens of thousands of dollars in concessions and repairs in an extremely hot seller’s market. We entrusted him with a fully virtual experience as we are an active duty military family. Our trust in him was so profound that we went under contract on our near million dollar investment property, site unseen except for his in-depth guided Zoom showings and analysis. If you are looking for an agent that can calculate value and prevent you from overpaying, give Anders a call.

– Vivian Lekowski, multi-family investor

Anders Ibsen is undoubtedly the very best real estate agent that a house seller could possibly have. He is brilliant, knows the real estate business from bottom to top, very friendly, most responsive, articulate — I could go on and on. Anyone wishing to sell a house (I rather imagine he would be terrific on the buying end as well) can do no better than to be represented by him throughout the entire process.

– Jack Bregger, North End home seller

We cannot say enough good things about our experience with Anders. Every single step of the way, he was on top of it. We found a property we love, got an offer in, completed acceptance, inspections, closed, and get keys… all within 30 days. Speed was not our goal. Anders just made it possible. His knowledge of the neighborhood and the market in general, along with his objective approach when letting us know what to expect, made us very comfortable with him right away. We don’t plan on moving, but if we ever had to buy a home again in Tacoma, we would insist on partnering with Anders again.

– Brian Espinosa, North End home owner

Anders’ expertise and background in city zoning laws was essential to be able to secure a cash-flowing investment property in this hot Tacoma market. Originally when I began my search, I was looking for multi-family properties that fit within my financial guidelines – a hard proposition. By leaning on Anders’ knowledge, I was able to get creative and find a value add in the Proctor neighborhood. I’m currently in the process of a garage-to-ADU conversion with the help of someone in his sphere and I couldn’t be more excited.

– Mark DePaul, North End homeowner

Anders Ibsen came highly recommended, and his being a former Councilman increased his credibility. I appreciated his knowledge of Tacoma’s current market trends, creating strategic plans while seeking input. He was always available and personable. I especially appreciated his patience helping me understand the selling process. Anders is your Go To Man for any real estate transactions.

– Kelly Hale, North End home seller

I give credit to Anders for closing on the house that my wife and I got! He understands the market very well and helped us put in a strong offer so we could be under contract after just 1 weekend of looking around (we were on a tight time schedule). He was able to handle small issues autonomously and led the way to getting a second lender when the first fell through, without which we would have lost the house. Great effort by Anders, we really appreciated having him as our broker.

– Matthew Heidebrecht, West Tacoma home owner

Buying our rental house with Anders help was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. We appreciated that he took the time to get as many details from us about what we were looking for so we didn’t waste time looking at properties that weren’t right. Throughout the process he kept us informed and was easy to get in touch with. He seems to know everyone so every question we had was answered quickly. We highly recommend Anders Ibsen!

– Nancy Parsons, Tacoma investor
