Selling your home can be an emotional experience. Handled correctly, it can also be an extremely profitable one. As your Realtor, I’m here to minimize the stress and maximize your return on investment.

I’ve been a North End resident my whole life. I can barely go to the store for a gallon of milk without running into an old friend from high school. I have driven Go-Karts at Point Defiance Park, was there when they demolished the ASARCO smokestack, and have seen what’s risen in its place. Having worked in local government for over 10 years, I’ve been privileged to serve this amazing community. My Certified Residential Appraiser background offers you a unique advantage when it comes to understanding the local market and finding your home's sweet spot list price.

I’m proud to help Tacoma residents sail through the process of selling their homes, so they can begin life’s next chapter.

You need certainty and peace of mind when making one of the biggest financial decisions of your life. As your Realtor, I will offer you tenacity, professionalism, devotion, and a keen ability to hear your priorities and find you the best possible deal. You deserve nothing less.


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

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 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

Anders did a phenomenal job selling my home and finding me a new one in the Proctor District! He took the time to help me find exactly what I was looking for. Anders goes above and beyond when working with his clients.

– Jeff Hoosier, North End home owner

Anders was great to work with throughout the process of selling my house. He put together a comprehensive report to help price it appropriately, suggested small improvements to enhance its value, and answered all of my questions. He kept in regular contact between accepting an offer and closing and eased any concerns.

– Rabbi Bruce Kadden, West Tacoma home seller

Anders is wonderful to work with. We had several challenges selling my late parent’s home and Anders was kind and professional walking us through each challenge, in the end the house sold quickly! I highly recommend Anders for all your real estate needs! I will definitely call on him again in the future!!!

– Karla Smith, West Tacoma home seller

Anders was wonderful. Sold my condo second day listed. Also provided the go to people for moving cleaning etc. Highly recommend him for any sale or purchase. Plus he is a pleasure to work with.

– Susan Leonard, West Tacoma condo seller

Anders did a great job assisting me in the sale of my condo. He supplied me with a realistic price and put me in touch with a “fix it” company that was able to take care of some minor repair work I needed in a timely and quality manner. Anders kept me informed every step of the process . . . very professional and knowledgeable.

– Barbara Bogue, West Tacoma condo seller

I spoke to Anders initially through a recommendation of a friend in the Tacoma area. My wife and I recently renovated a house in North Tacoma and needed to move quickly with a few projects still looming. Anders was able to give us a honest assessment in what we should do to make our house more appealing to potential buyers. Within a week of listing we had double digit offers. Closing was fast and everything was always taken care of. Giving us updates often and being very responsive to anything we needed. I would recommend Anders to anyone in the Tacoma area due to his in depth knowledge of the city, as well as his tireless work ethic!

Distilling the selling process

Putting your home on the market can be stressful, but with the right strategy, data, and negotiation approach, even the most complex situations can be met with ease. I’ll help you get a clear, complete picture of the current market and buyer behaviors. Knowing all the facts ahead of time will help us all feel centered as we begin to list your home.

Here’s how I’ll ensure a smooth process:

  • Step 1: Goal Setting + Property Debrief

    We’ll get clear on your goals, schedule, and what you know about the property. Next, we’ll walk through your home so I can start crafting our strategy.

  • Step 2: Setting Your Price

    I’ll provide a detailed value opinion based on the market data and go over it with you. Together we’ll use that data to arrive at your pricing sweet spot.

  • Step 3: Pre-Listing Process

    I’ll help determine what repairs and other modifications may be needed to maximize selling value and appeal. I’ll also coordinate next steps: occupancy, repairs, landscaping, etc.

  • Step 4: Meticulous Preparation

    I’ll begin to arrange the pre-listing marketing work: deep cleaning, staging, photography, video, title report, direct mail design and distribution, open house logistics, social media ads, final listing paperwork, etc.

  • Step 5: Marketing Strategy

    We’ll introduce your home to the market with a coordinated marketing blitz, with the aim of maximizing showings the first weekend it’s on the market. I’ll personally contact every agent who shows the property – and every agent who simply has interested buyers – to encourage a showing. Our goal will be to heighten the chance of a multiple offer situation (a bidding war).

  • Step 6: Review + Accept Offers

    I’ll compile single-page summaries of all the offers received and help you select the strongest offer and any backup offers. Then I’ll coordinate initial procedures with swift earnest money delivery and plan the appraisal interaction.

  • Step 7: Strong Path to Closing

    Once we’re under contract, we will proceed to closing – on time and without hassle. If we are dealing with a home inspection, I will use the strongest possible negotiation to ensure the best outcome for you. As a Certified Residential Appraiser on the FHA roster, I know exactly what pitfalls to avoid when dealing with appraisers, so that your home appraises at value with minimal fuss. To this date: every home I have ever listed has appraised at value.

  • Step 8: Closing

    I’ll check in every week until closing to ensure a smooth, bump-free process.

  • Step 9: Ongoing Communication

    Once you’re a client, you’ll always be a client. So even after we’ve closed on your home sale, even years down the road I will always be just one phone call away if you - or anyone you know - ever need anything.
