Sheila Johanse recommends Lynn White

Lynn was professional in the very best sense of the word. On top of that she was patient and kind. I would highly recommend her without reservation.

Lynn was incredibly helpful with every detail in our buying a new home. She is an exceptional professional and is very resourceful. We enjoyed spending time with her and her thoughtfulness and kindness throughout the process was especially appreciated!

Barbara recommends Sean Hackney

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.

Alieca Prendergast recommends Sean Ryan

Vice President Program Management; Aerospace

We met Sean over 13 years ago when selling one of our first businesses - With his 'can do' attitude, warmth and experience he quickly became an extension of our family. Sean has been our go to person ever since; recommending to friends and family alike - they have all had very positive experiences. After moving to the East Coast we made the tough decision to sell a home we had for nearly twenty years --- Sean was the only one we would trust to such an emotional and important step in our lives. It only seemed right that he be part of the closure of our PNW journey. Sean, even from afar, made us feel comfortable and in good hands - just as we suspected he would. I would highly recommend Sean for selling your current home or helping you to find your next. Best Always, the Prendergast Family

Jonathan Grove recommends Jack Schramer

Self Employed

Jack was recommended to us by a friend in the area. We were introduced and he quickly developed a good understanding of what we were looking for our next home. Jack's understanding of real estate, general building and his detailed knowledge of the Bellingham market enabled him to help us find multiple possibilities. He helped us negotiate an excellent price on a very good home which should be a very good long term buy for us. We cannot say enough about his availability and communication. Also, after the sale we needed assistance with details about the property quickly and he came through with what we needed in a very short time frame. 5 star service with a smile. Couldn't ask for anything better!

JASON ARDT recommends Sean Ryan

Engineering Technician

This was my second time working with Sean, and he didn't disappoint. Despite working with an out of town seller and an uncooperative tenant, Sean made the buying process easy. His communications skills are top notch, he knows the market, and he's very pleasant to work with. I'd say I'll use him again, but I'm pretty sure we found our forever home. Thanks Sean!

Janis Walworth recommends Marcy Mjelde

Marcy was great. She made sure we were well taken care of when she was unavailable during our house-hunting process. She helped guide us through the purchase of a house for sale by owner, handling every detail with tact. She was always responsive to our phone calls and answered all out questions. We plan to use her again to sell our rental property.

Sandra Glick recommends Sean Hackney

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.

Kimberly B recommends Sean Hackney

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!

Brad Snyder recommends Shaun De Yager

Shaun recently helped me sell the home of my aging parents in South Seattle. He had two strikes against him from the get-go. First of all, my parents didn't want to move, and second, I live in Helena, MT! But Shaun rose to the challenge and got us the best price possible. He and I spent many hours on the phone and I learned of his unwavering integrity and his foundational desire that we end up with not only the best price, but also the best selling experience. And he made that happen. Not only did he work hard for us in the office and on the phone, but on-site as well. Since I couldn't be there to do some of the grunt work necessary to make the sale, Shaun took it upon himself to get dirty and get the job done. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Selling a home is a very emotional event even in the best of circumstances; the sale of my parents' home was fraught with emotional circumstances hardly to be imagined. Shaun never wavered in his commitment to us. He was always encouraging, always ready to troubleshoot the next set of challenges. He is a gem!

Kenneth and Deirdre Hahs recommend Jack Schramer

We chose Jack Schramer to help us find our new home after we witnessed first hand the personal time and attention he gave our daughter and son-in-law when they purchased their first home. We were not let down! Jack is a great listener, communicator, and always kept us up to date and in the loop during our whole purchasing process. His background and experience helped to identify things that might have been issues, and addressed them promptly on our behalf. He is personable, reliable, and readily available to address questions, show a property, or follow up with other parties involved in the purchase. We highly recommend Jack as an excellent and experienced agent offering personalized service!

J Ives recommends Sean Hackney

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.

Lynn was an absolute pleasure to work with. She learned about us and found perfect homes for us to see.

Katherine Lee recommends Marcy Mjelde

Marcy was great! She was very friendly, very enthusiastic, very encouraging. She immediately did anything I suggested, had a lot of helpful suggestions herself. It was a somewhat challenging sale, and Marcy persevered and succeeded.

Matthew De Haan recommends Shaun De Yager

Shaun was knowledgeable, well connected and maintained consistent communication in a complicated real estate transaction for me and my family.

I would highly recommend Shaun to anyone looking for help with buying or selling a home.

Joy Brewer recommends Sean Hackney

Retired Educator

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.

Steve and Cathi LeCocq recommend Jack Schramer

Private Investor

My wife and I have been buying and selling real estate for over 30 years. We have closed property transactions with and without the professional assistance of real estate agents and brokers.

It is our opinion that Jack Schramer is an excellent real estate professional. Jack, having worked in the construction and development sector for many years understands properties and structures. He knows how to "talk the talk". Jack consistently kept in touch with us on leads and potential buyers, communicated clearly with us on how we wanted to partner on moving sales potentials ahead and kept a continuous marketing plan moving forward. Jack also knows how to "walk the walk".

One of the most impressive traits we saw in Jack was his communication and negotiation skills. Too many people just plain talk to much, including realtors. Jack seems to have an excellent feel for how much information to share with other agents or buyers and what information to keep close.

Bottom line --- we feel that Jack Schramer is very professional, progressive, easy to work with and he gets things done. We could easily work with Jack again.

Ryan DiBiano recommends Sean Hackney

Process Control Engineer

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.

Kaysee Leyva recommends Sean Hackney

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.

Sean is amazing! He makes buying and selling houses easy and hassle free! We have bought 3 houses with him and sold one. He is not just our Relator but family friend. He really takes care of his clients, makes them feel appreciated and is extremely knowledgable. We have recommended him to many people and will continue to do so! Thanks Sean!

Cameo Besherse recommends Jack Schramer


My boyfriend and I looked at four houses. All in the general area of where we wanted to live. They all had their own special little thing that we either liked or disliked about them. On the fourth house we fell in love, and I think Jack did as well. He was so very helpful with the process. Since this is our first house we really didn't know where to start. Jack took lead and did everything he could to get this dream home. I would recommend Jack to everyone. He has extensive knowledge about the construction and electrical part of the house and will help guide anyone through what you should be looking for. Not to mention he is a friendly guy.
