Sean was amazing! He went above and beyond throughout the entire selling process. He kept us informed every step of the way, I never had to wonder if everything was taken care of and on track. Sean is thoughtful and adds a personal touch to his business making you feel as though you have a friend in the process. I would highly recommend Sean to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home in the area.

I can’t recommend Sean Hackney enough. He did a superb job from start to finish during our home selling process. He has proven himself to be a highly experienced and knowledgeable expert in his field. Sean took very good care of us and went out of his way to make sure the entire process was as seamless as possible. He is the ultimate professional and gets a ten out of ten from the Buhler’s.

Sean and his team are by far the best around! His support and attention to detail as well as his customer service set him apart in his industry. Sean has incredible integrity along with great sense of his industry. He made sure he listened to everything we felt and communicated clearly always. He is a great guy and wonderful to work with. Highly recommend using him if you are looking for someone who really respects, listens and cares about your real estate transaction. We are so thankful for him and his assistant Courtney! By far our best real estate transaction.

When my friend recommended Sean to us, she said "I recommend him as a realtor and a person." She wasn't kidding. Sean made relocating to Bellingham from the Midwest a breeze. He was gracious and willing to chat with us about the market before we even decided to move. Once here, he was the absolute best guide through this quirky and unfamiliar market helping us understand the neighborhoods, housing options and always having our backs. He has a great way of lightly playing devil's advocate that helps you see your decisions in a new light. Helpful in a market that moves fast. I only wish he could have helped us sell our place in Chicago.

Sean spent many hours with us as we looked at many houses looking for a lot of specific things to combine 2 families to live together. We finally found one and then appreciated so much all of his help in selling our homes. I would highly recommend him to anybody.

Sean is the best of the best! He’s knowledgeable and negotiated for us so we got the best deal on our house. He was always there along the way to answer any questions, and he pulled it all together at the end when it looked like we wouldn’t be able to close on time. We wouldn’t use anybody else!

Sean has been wonderful in every facet. In 2015, Sean was referred to us and helped educate us about the Pacific Northwest and buy the perfect house. In 2018, we chose Sean to sell our home when given a job relocation during the winter months. His knowledge of the local area, professionalism, and local networking were key to us getting our home sold quickly during a slower season. Above all, Sean makes you feel like family and keeps in touch with clients throughout the years. You can't go wrong with Sean for buying or selling.

Sean provided my husband and I with the best real estate experience we've ever had (and we have bought and sold many homes.) He was a great resource for the services we needed in Bellingham in order to get our offer accepted and to close the sale. When we had questions, he got back to us instantly and he kept us well informed every step along the way. Without hesitation I would highly recommend him.

Sean worked with me when buying my home in washington, I had such a positive experience with him helping me find the exact home I wanted that I went back to him when it was time to sell it. The first thing that made him stand out was his concept of home sale competition in deciding the sale price, which was significantly higher than other brokers estimates. It was a relatively poor time of year to sell my home, and I was worried about having it on the market for a long time. Those fears were completely unfounded, not only did he find multiple buyers within a couple of months, but he managed to get a very good sale price through hard work and an expert opinion. If you want the best price, fastest sale, and an all around excellent agent, Sean is your guy.

Words cant even describe how amazing Sean was as our real estate agent. Gosh buying a house is intense but Sean made it so easy for us. He guided us through everything. Also I really liked how honest he was. He was able to find us our amazing first home that was also a smart investment. If you are thinking of buying or selling a home you absolutely need to have Sean be your agent.

as an out-of-country, first-time homebuyer, Sean came through when the time was critical and went above and beyond. At no point did I feel pressured and he gave honest feedback. I learned a lot through the process and we are fulfilled with the purchase of a beautiful home. I would not hesitate to point family and friends to Sean for their Whatcom real estate needs. Thank you again!

Sean was amazing to work with and made the buying and selling process as seamless as possible. Juggling selling one house in Ferndale and buying another house five hours away could have been a complete nightmare. Sean made it as smooth as possible. He helped find us a great realtor in our new area and worked directly with her. He also recommended a great lender and was in constant communication with everyone to keep everything moving. Even with a few hiccups along the way that was out of our control, Sean always handled everything quickly and efficiently. He truly is a trustworthy and hardworking realtor whom I would 100% recommend to anyone.

This the second time that Sean has helped me sell a home. He's wonderful and walks you through every step. He's also there to answer all your questions. If I ever decide to move again, he will be the one I call. We love him.

Sean has been by our side for 12 years, through two home sales and two purchases. He's is the agent that I've trusted to refer to my mother, my father-in-law, and my friends - all of whom purchased theirs homes with Sean's assistance and keen eye for bringing the right properties to your attention.

Sean's is an amazing professional and knows his trade and this region well. Moreover, he is a man of uncompromising integrity, with an overflowing and generous heart. He's really the best of the best!!

I can't imagine either buying or selling a house in Whatcom County without Sean. Okay, that's not true -- I can imagine it because I tried once and it wasn't a good experience. Sean is one of the hardest working people I know. He's smart, ethical, and (perhaps most importantly) kind. His strong focus on service doesn't end when the deal is done - it continues, and continues, and continues.

In the last 10 years Sean has helped me find two houses and sell two other houses. He's also helped my parents and in-laws find houses as well as various friends. He is, without a doubt, the only realtor in Whatcom County I would send friends and relatives to.

Sean Hackney has just handled the sale of two properties for us in Whatcom County. Most of the work was done remotely as our residence is outside of said county. Sean kept us informed every step of the way with reports of viewings, open houses, needed paperwork, suggestions and ideas to consider regarding multiple aspects pertaining to the whole process.
He was great, and we would like to recommend Sean Hackney to all of you. Thank you, Sean, for being there for us, it wasn’t all easy going.

Sean was a joy to work with! He took such good care of us. We are new to Bellingham and Sean was able to show us around and give us great insights to all the different parts of town. Sean is knowledgeable, attentive and works hard for his clients. He is honest and reliable and always responded to our questions through email, text and phone very quickly. Sean is very personable and easy to talk to. He truly cares about his clients. Sean made our home buying process a tremendous success from start to finish. Thanks, Sean!

My wife and I recently had a lot and trailer for sale at The Glen in Maple Falls. Sean agreed to take the sales assignment, even though there were over 50 units for sale there. Sean was able to sell our unit for our asking price. He stayed in constant communications throughout the process, even when on vacation. We were very satisfied with all aspects of this complex transaction.

We have worked with Sean Hackney on two transactions now. The first was when Sean very quickly secured a contract on our home once we learned of a work transfer. Closing was very smooth.

The second was the selling of my mom's home. Sean exceeded all expectations. Working with me remotely and Locally with my elderly mom, Sean was so helpful, extremely patient and caring in working with my mom. Patiently answering all her questions and walking her through the process with kind and sensitive understanding knowing that she had lived there for over 50 years.

We can not say enough and highly recommend Sean Hackney to help you buy or sell your home.

I am delighted to write a letter of recommendation for Sean. Working with him has been a totally positive experience from the beginning to the end (we just had our closing). He is professional, helpful, dependable and most of all, kind and considerate. We are now pleased to call him a friend. He went above and beyond in assisting us with the sale of our home and our cross country move. We highly recommend him without any reservation.

We would absolutely recommend Sean. He really took the time to make sure we found the right house for us. Using his excellent knowledge of Bellingham and his keen eye, he provided a very honest assessment of each property's positive and negative attributes. He was quick with communication and was able to accommodate our difficult schedule, even if that meant taking my wife and I to see a listing at separate times. Overall, he went above and beyond the duties I would expect of a realtor. If we ever need to buy another home, we will definitely call Sean!
