KIRO kept the entries anonymous until after the winner was selected. To discover the winner is one of our past customers confirms what we have always believed: Our customers are our best salespeople.


Here is a letter John and his family wrote to us after winning the contest.

Thanks so much for the generous prize offering and the kind words posted out on your web site with respect to the Real Estate Mumbo Jumbo concept.The Naab family experienced Real Estate Mumbo Jumbo first hand, but with the help of we triumphantly over came all obstacles selling our home in Everett, Washington!

Our family greatly appreciates that a company like yours exist, because we were able to get our target selling price on our home and avoid paying high commissions. As I mentioned to you in our meeting, we chose to upgrade our new home with a sport court in the backyard.  This would not have been possible if we had to pay-out a high commission.The family that moved into our previous home is still there and happy. Their home has appreciated in value.  The best transactions are when all parties involved Win.

I can say without hesitation, that has improved the quality of our lives.  Incidentally, my 12-year-old son that you met at 710KIRO is an all-district caliber basketball player, because he lives on our new sport court!

We are looking forward to taking a family vacation in the near future with our prize money, and will look forward to hearing your new radio commercials.  Let’s hope that someday Real Estate Mumbo Jumbo will be a thing of the past.  After all, it’s all about providing consumers with choices.  We’re happy that we chose YOU!

Wishing the Best of Success!

Kindest Regards,

The Naab Family
