Tom Bourne recommends Marcy Mjelde

We had a fine buying and selling experience with Marcy. She's a real people person, responsive to all enquiries, listened to our needs but was always ready with guidance if we were confused. Highly recommended!

Sally Cravens recommends Erin Kennedy

Special Sections Manager, Advertising

What can I say about this fabulous realtor. I lived in Kauai and was visiting Bellingham and I inquired about a property. That was the beginning of our fantastic realtor and buyer relationship. She helped me find my ideal place in Sudden Valley, Bellingham. And, when I moved back to the Northwest this last Fall for a job in Everett, she also helped me find a place. A challenging transaction, she was the utmost professional throughout the ordeal, beginning to finish.

I like that Erin listens to what I want, and not what she wants me sell me. She paid close attention to my needs, my requirement list, and was on top of the real estate market issues.

I highly recommend Erin Kennedy to anyone who is interested in selling or buying a home, whether you are near or far. She will be there for you.

Dan Morrison recommends Erin Kennedy

We are really happy with how Erin performed in selling our house! Her market analysis was very complete and spot on. Three other agents that we interviewed valued it $25,000 to $50,000 less than Erin did, We ended up selling it for a little over the asking price. She orchestrated the entire process flawlessly from pictures & video and producing professional marketing materials, to open houses, analyzing offers and negotiating the sale. We would definitely use her again.

Co-Owner & Principal Architect, Atelier Drome Architecture & Interior Design

Stephanie did a tremendous job with the purchase of our new home. She is intelligent, communicative, pro-active and kind, and I can say without a doubt this has been the best real estate experience that my wife and I have ever experienced! We cannot recommend Stephanie and her team highly enough!

Jim Sipe recommends Sean Hackney

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.

Jeff Feemster recommends Sean Hackney

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.

Peter & Marilyn Bushre recommends Marcy Mjelde

We have never had a better real estate agent represent us in buying or selling a home than Marcy Mjelde. We are seniors, and through the years we have worked with agents to buy and/or sell homes in Washington, Alaska and California. Marcy surpassed them all with a 5++ rating from us.

Marcy is very professional, extremely knowledgeable, a great listener and problem solver. She always went the "extra mile" for us during and even after the sale. Along with all this, we could trust her completely and she was a total delight to work with in every instance..

Marcy made finding our new home as easy and delightful as it could possibly be. We would strongly and unreservedly recommend Marcy to family, friends and acquaintances alike. We will always be grateful to her for her expertise, cheerful friendliness and plain hard work on our behalf. She is also great fun to work with in the buying process!

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.

June vaughn recommends Marcy Mjelde

I was selling my home of 32 years and moving to a small apartment. I met Marcy years ago and when I needed a realtor she came to mind because of her sunny personality and her strong work ethic. I was not disappointed. Marcy carefully explained the selling process to me and relieved the stress of selling my home -with all it's memories.
Marcy has years of experience, is knowledgable, personable and generous with her time. She was patient with me when there was an issue I didn't understand. I felt safe in her hands and best of all she sold my house quickly and at an excellent price.

Happy Home Buyers

Buying a new house is surprisingly anxiety-laden. We tried to work with a few other realtors but felt bullied, disregarded, or otherwise uncertain.

Then we found Marcy! She was calm, reassuring, and always professionally sharp. She generously gave her time to show houses we asked for, and honestly helped us realize what didn't work. The market was so stingy in early spring of 2017, and I was often discouraged. At those times, Marcy quietly assured me, "We'll find the right one."

And then one day she took us to the PERFECT house! I knew before I walked in the door that this was the home of my dreams. Marcy went to work with the selling realtor on our behalf. We had a contingent offer, not a good thing at that time. I think she said something like "What do we need to do today to make this happen?" And it did! Go, Marcy!

Oh, and by the way, she sold the house we were coming from as easily and as well.

Dental Assistant

Sean is such an awesome realator. From start to finish, no details missed. He checked in with us with each step, every choice and took care of everything. He made the process as stress free as possible and really got us exactly what we wanted. We couldn't be happier with our home and he was a huge part of making that happen. I would recommend him to anyone buying in the Washington area. If we ever buy again, we will definitely be using him for help!

Todd Gehrke recommends Stephanie Walter

Director of Buying a House

It was great working with Stephanie! She was very professional throughout the entire process and understood exactly what we were looking for. She didn't waste our time by showing us a bunch of places that were out of our price range or didn't meet our criteria. She had the perfect combination of giving us the space we needed, but was always there when we requested information. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a place in the Bellingham area.

Andrea Shenton recommends Sean Ryan

I would not hesitate to recommend Sean Ryan and his team for ANY real estate transaction. We have worked with him on both buying and selling and have found him to be highly professional, timely and very accommodating. Never once did he pressure or rush us. He never attempted to sway us one way or the other but listened to us and made suggestions. In fact he was honest with us if he felt a home did not match our needs. Sean is an awesome real estaate agent and a really great guy. It hs been a real pleasure to work with him and his entire team. They use the latest marketing and advances in technology and social media to go all out when marketing your home or finding your new one.

Dan and Michelle Watterson recommends Sean Hackney

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!

Lynn Setterberg recommends Marcy Mjelde

When my mother decided it was time to sell her home where she had lived for many years, she was given Marcy's name from a friend. I just made one phone call and everything was taken care of. Marcy is very professional and friendly. She understood the needs of, and was respectful of my mothers feelings. We are very grateful to have met her.

Thank you Staci for the professional and awesome job you did in assisting us with our recent home purchase. In Whatcom County's tight real estate market you need a realtor that will go to bat for you and you did just that. This was one of the smoothest home purchases my husband and I have made to date!!!! Staci and her team are responsive and awesome!!!

Tracy Weber recommends Stephanie Walter

Program Office Coordinator

My husband and I met Stephanie when we were looking at a house that we decided we weren't interested in and thought that would be it... until a few days later when we found our dream home and needed someone to help us coordinate going to see it! Stephanie was there every step of the way from that first viewing, to selling our old house, and closing on both. Not only did she always have or get answers for us right away, she was a pleasure to work with and honestly cared about making the whole thing a great experience for us.
