Lindsey Adelman recommends Sean Ryan

Full time Mom

Sean was exceptional! We purchased a home from out of state. When we came to visit he showed us a handful of homes that met our criteria. He really learned what we were looking for. After sending us numerous listings we had him view a home on our behalf. His input and industry knowledge were impressive. The purchase process was smooth and easy. We found the perfect home for our growing family. Highly recommend Sean!

Marcy is wonderful to work with due to her professionalism, kindness and integrity. She has a keen knowledge of the area, the neighborhoods and property values. She is always polite, punctual and cheerful; an absolute delight to work with! Her wisdom and guidance were invaluable when we made our successful offer for a highly competitive South Hill property. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Cherrelyn Seegers recommends Marcy Mjelde

Owner Back In Motion Chiropractic and Massage Center

Marcy has now helped me with 5 purchase/sales over 3 homes. I would never utilize or recommend anyone over her. She is on top of Whatcom County Real Estate trends, knows when to sell and when to hold off, her communication is superb, and she is compassionate to boot!

Jill Morris recommends Sean Hackney


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.

Lacey Thompson recommends Stephanie Walter

Stephanie is as smart as she is beautiful. It is obvious she knows what to look for because she gets into the nitty gritty with you when you're really looking at/in/under a house. She is a wonderful advocate for her clients. She is very good with people, so she handles the back-and-forth nature of the buying process with tact and finesse. She gives good advice, and fully supports the decisions you make, regardless of what they may be. She is very timely, both in attendance and the myriad documents involved in making offers. She is thoughtful, too. She gave me a Mother's Day care package, and once our deal was finalized, she dropped off a stack of moving boxes complete with a roll of tape and a marker. This is before the thoughtful housewarming basket she built us that she gave us at signing. She goes above and beyond. My one critique of her is that she works too hard: She was negotiating/writing up documents on a weekend getaway for her anniversary! We will definitely hire her again, whether we are buying or selling, and you would be wise to do the same.

Jeremy Shaffer recommends Stephanie Walter

Software Engineer

Our Seattle real estate agent referred us to Stephanie in our search for a vacation property. We're so glad that we had the opportunity to work with her! She is an A+ communicator and always prompt, friendly, and professional whenever we had questions about a property. We looked at all kinds of properties and she went above and beyond when we found a seasonal-access cabin that we liked in a different county. Stephanie joined us on a winter hike to show us the cabin and was super helpful in negotiating when we decided to put in an offer. We can't recommend Stephanie enough and would jump at the opportunity to work with her again.

Emma Sharf recommends Stephanie Walter

I met Stephanie through mutual friends but was sadly moving out of area. She referred us to a fantastic agent in our area that helped us find our home in one of the toughest markets! She is sweet, kind, very helpful with communication and explaining processes. I would definitely recommend her to every one!

Laura Syvertson recommends Sean Ryan

Home Buyer

Sean was ready to answer questions and take action through every step of our process. He made it fast and easy to get in to look at homes. Sean was very diligent about going to bat for us during the offer process and made sure we were making the most competitive offer we could. Sean was there for us not only as a realtor, but as a supporter. He joined us on signing day at the title office, and brought us little tokens like packing boxes that made our life just a little bit easier.

Jennifer Floyd recommends Sean Hackney

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.

Anne Watson recommends Sean Ryan


Sean Ryan recently handled the sale of our home in Maple Falls, Washington. He was incredibly helpful in selling our home "long distance", as we had already moved across the country. Sean handled all the details of selling our home, and calmly handled every obstacle that arose. I would recommend Sean to anyone who wants to buy or sell a home.

Julie de Losada recommends Sean Hackney

Health Analyst

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!!

Laurie Bertsche recommends Sean Ryan

Sean did an amazing job selling my condo this month. Not only did he price it well for this market, but I got a full price offer on day one. Sean made, what can be a stressful time with selling a property, a easy seamless endeavor. I highly recommend Sean and his team for any of your real estate needs!

Eric Chambers recommends Sean Hackney

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.

Steven Atkinson recommends Staci Ryan

Dairy Pharmaceutical Sales

Choosing to work with Staci is as one of the best decisions I made in my home buying process! She was always accessible and kept me in the loop every step of the way, which made me feel like I was her only client which makes you feel good!
We had some unexpected events pop up in our deal related to a problem previous owner. But Staci handled the whole situation like a pro! She had a plan and always had a smile on her face which gave me the confidence that the issues would be solved and that she would handle all those stresses for me.

ANDREW A ANDERSEN recommends Staci Ryan

Small business owner

Staci and her team we're absolutely phenomenal. She was, and still is always available to help. In this tough market, Staci was able to find the dream house for my family. I can't recommend Staci enough!

susan vadimsky recommends Marcy Mjelde

Marcy was recommended to me by my daughter and I couldn't have chosen a better agent to represent me with the purchase of my new home in Blaine, WA. Marcy was always punctual in returning phone calls and emails and quick to schedule appointments and answer any questions I had. The signing of final papers at closing was well coordinated with Whatcom Land and Title and Churchill Mortgage due to her thorough knowledge of the purchasing process. Even after the closing, I feel confident that I can reach out to her if I have any other questions. I would recommend her to any of my friends who are in the market for selling or purchasing a new home.

Beverly Larsen recommends Marcy Mjelde


Marcy worked with us to find not only a buyer, but a buyer who will be our new neighbor. She marketed our waterfront lot on websites that specialize in waterfront properties. Marcy brought us several offers and got us what we were asking! She listened to us about our needs and provided easy online transactions. She's a cheerful and thoughtful person and working with her was lovely!

Debora Nelli recommends Erin Kennedy

Assistant Professor

Erin was a true pleasure to work with. She sold my condo for within 2% of my asking price in the first 30 days of my listing. I was especially impressed with her work ethic and timely responses to my inquiries. She was great at listening to my needs and making the whole listing, showing and sales process run smoothly. She is a true professional that worked hard to get me the results I needed.

Karen and Jim Sipe recommends Sean Hackney


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.

John shoup recommends Staci Ryan

Control Board operator

I've worked with Staci many times in the past and they've all been a great experience. Replies to emails, texts or calls any time day or night. You'll be the first person to see a new listing and Have a shot at a walk through. Most importantly is the honesty and being able to trust that she's looking out for your best interest with such a big investment.
