I cannot say enough about Sean. He helped us find a home when we moved to Washington 5 years ago, and helped us sell our home when we were heading out again. More than that, Sean stayed in touch during all the time we lived in Washington - I knew I could count on him for information, advice, and recommendations at any time.

I promise, if you're looking for a Realtor, you will not find a better one that Sean Hackney. Plus, those little frenchies are SO cute!

This is the second time that we have had Sean represent us in our home sale and purchases. Sean makes you feel like you are a high priority and helps you every step of the way. With his professionalism, knowledge, kindness, and positive attitude you won't find a better agent.

After years of discussion, when we finally decided to list our home we weren’t in a hurry and wanted to be in control of the process. We had nothing pushing us and did not want to compromise our priorities, so we knew it would require an agent with patience and perseverance. Sean listened to our needs, provided informative market data and wise counsel, while ultimately letting us drive the process. He was an outstanding partner and the NextHome team did a fabulous job of marketing our home. He ultimately helped us find the perfect buyers who will be a great fit for our home and neighborhood as we close one chapter and move on to the next. A huge thanks to Sean and the entire NextHome team!!!

Senior Account Manager for a niche MES company
I am a real senior and never ever thought that I would be able to live in my own home. This makes me a total novice in the real estate area.
If it wasn't for Sean I might not have thought it possible to get my own place but also probably given up in the process for lack of knowledge and discouragement.
Sean was there every step of the way, patiently answered all my questions and showed me all the possibilities.
Sean is trustworthy, never ever pushy and very supportive.
His expertise brought this transaction to a very successful closure.
Sean came highly recommended and rightly so.
Thank you so very much for helping me start a whole new chapter in my life.

First time home buyer
I was shocked at how smooth and low stress our first time home buying experience was, and that is in large part due to Sean’s expertise, market knowledge, personal connections, optimism and amiability, and responsiveness to our wants and needs. He was recommended to us by family and we will for sure extend the recommendation to any others in need of a local agent.

Sean Hackney was incredibly helpful to my husband and I during our home buying purchase . He is highly experienced, has a hands on and personal approach that sets your mind at ease. He walked us through every step of the process. He is an awesome negotiator and was extremely patient every step of the way. He is not only a top notch Real Estate Broker but he is an incredible human being who is genuine , trustworthy and works with the highest integrity! We would highly recommend Sean to our family, friends & anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

Thank you Sean, you are the best!

I was lucky enough to be referred to Sean by a trusted friend and could not have been happier with the outcome. Whether you're a first time home buyer like myself or have been through it all before, Sean is always available for guidance and information. Not knowing what I didn't know was a tough spot to be in and Sean helped me through the process and advocated for me even when I was away at work for multiple days with limited phone access. Do yourself a favor and go with someone you can trust and someone you'll regard as a friend by the end of the process. Can't say enough good things about him. Thank you Sean!

In the current real estate marketplace where buyers have access to a number of resources to access listings and we often assume as consumers that if we “find” the house, that we’ve done the lions-share of the work and sometimes this may be true, but in our case, Sean and his team of professionals were able to bridge our gap in knowledge in a new location and were able to negotiate a price reduction after inspection that made a cosmetic fixer a viable option for us. Sean helped us understand potential value and the trends in the local market and along with his guidance on final offer, we were able to make a smart decision. We are very happy with our purchase and highly recommend Sean because of the depth he goes to in support of his customer.

There are lots of agents out there that will place a sign in your yard and do the bare minimum to sell your home. Then there agents like Sean hackney that take a vested interest in you the client, in your home and the process of selling your home. There are lots of agents after doing the bare minimum to sell your, expect full payment for very little work. Then there are agents like Sean hackney that dot every “i”, cross every “t” and have no expectations until the job is completed 100%. There are lots of agents that can help you sell or buy a home. If you want an agent that takes a personal stake in the process, walks with you step by step through that process, answers your questions and addresses your concerns day or night, an agent that becomes your personal advocate- then call Sean Hackney, the best first decision you can make!

Thank you Sean for all the help of understanding the Bellingham market. Coming from out of state, it was a real challenge getting up to speed, but you showed a lot of enthusiasm and obviously know this are so well, that it made it super easy for me and my husband, and also very enjoyable with your bubbling personality. I would highly recommend you to anyone.

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.

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.

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.
