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.

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!

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.

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!

Lillian P Canada recommends Marcy Mjelde

Counselor/ Therapist

Marcy listened to what we wanted and showed us homes that met our 'want list'... she did not waste our precious time showing us homes that did not meet our criteria.
Also, as we were novices at looking at construction of a house, she educated us about certain specifics we needed to be aware of, i.e. siding, or type of floors.
She is genuine, knowledgeable, friendly, and works more than 100% to meet our preferences, and our timeline.
We hope to keep her as a friend... she is someone we definitely want to have dinner with more often in the future.

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.

HENRY WALTERS recommends Stephanie Walter

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.

Ray Rodriguez recommends Staci Ryan

Opinionated Gentleman

This is the second home we have sold with Staci and her awesome team and each went smoothly and efficiently! All of her providers were top notch and professional and she and Stephanie are more like family at this point then Realtors. They always provide the real scoop and actual facts instead of just telling you what you want to hear. I'm hoping not to need their services again for a looooooooong time, but I wouldn't hesitate one moment to use Staci's services again!
