I can't imagine a better real estate agent than Sean. So professional, personable and skilled. He made buying a home in Bellingham very easy (maybe too easy? Nah!). He knows his business and quickly figured out what we were looking for and helped us a lot in narrowing our choices and in prioritizing. I can imagine how one could go wrong in working with Sean. And, after you settle on your new house, you know that he will keep in touch and be a resource. We look for to seeing him around Bellingham. Thanks Sean!

Sean was an amazing agent for us. He took great care to find out everything about us and what we were looking for in a house, a neighborhood, and more and then went to work. He always listened to us and kept us informed re the process, the real estate market, and the ins and outs of each house and location. Because of his attention to detail and taking the time to really listen to us, he consistently provided us options which ultimately led us to our dream house. In addition, he presented us so well to the sellers, capturing the extra information that made the sale. We can't be happier with him and would highly highly recommend him to anyone looking for a home just as our dear friends recommended him to us. He is the best.

Sean handled the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new home. He is very professional, does what he says, and was always available as question arose. I would highly recommend him to anyone buying our selling a home. His experience was invaluable.

Sean was awesome to work with. As a first time home buyer he gave us a ton of helpful information and really made the process enjoyable. We would highly recommend!

Sean was very professional in helping us sell our house to achieve our goals of moving into a different lifestyle. Moving 40 years of accumulations takes some time to sort out and he was patient with us as we moved through the process. He was very undertanding when we pushed our dates out a few times in order to accomplish the move out process. When it came time to list, his advise was sound and the resulting sale was very positive! I would highly recommend Sean if you would like a professional and positive experience in home sales. Thank you for helping us achieve our alternative lifestyle goals!

We were referred to Sean over a year ago and he has been by our side since that first day. It had been 16 years since we were in the market to buy a house, but I remembered what an awful realtor I had back then, so was extremely discerning when choosing Sean. He made it an easy choice! He understood our timeline and cross-country move limitations and took it all in stride. He was seemingly available every weekend to do last minute (virtual) viewings and entertain our family as they helped us find the perfect home. We had some misses due to the volatility of the market, but ultimately ended up finding the perfect home, in the perfect location, at the perfect time. I credit Sean with our success! I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell!

We were purchasing a vacation home and the process was a little complicated. Sean was absolutely amazing! He was critical in dealing with the seller's agent to get the deal done. We would not hesitate to recommend Sean to anyone - 100%!

Sean is the consummate professional. In a time where the market is unpredictable and out of control his experience and knowledge shined.
Sean was able to get a significantly higher price for our property even after paying his small commission than if we just listed it ourselves. His negotiation skills were exemplary and the small details to make the house a home for the new owner were spot on.

We highly recommend Sean and will use again.

Save yourself a headache and hire Sean.

I can't recall how my search through Bellingham real estate agents brought me to Sean but I'm I found him. Looking back I'm sure the time it took to find our house wasn't too long but it felt daunting at times. Sean's calm demeanor and what seems like an encyclopedic knowledge of Bellingham house prices steadied the search. Who knew finding a 3 bedroom house for sale in Bellingham would be such a wild ride but Sean was the right partner for the job. Work with Sean with confidence. Thank you.

Sean did such a wonderful job helping us sell our home. All of the advice was spot on and every question was answered in a timely maner. We sold our house in a few days and when the slightest problem came up he was firm in the decision that was the best for us.
Thank you

Could not be happier with the way Sean handled the sale of my home! He is so efficient at all the little details making the process so easy.

Sean was huge help in buying our house in Bellingham. We didn't know anything about the area and he really helped educate us. He was very communicative and walked us through the process. I consider Sean a friend, which will be very helpful living in a new city.

Sean was the best, most helpful realtor we could have asked for! As first time homebuyers, we felt nervous and worried about missing steps in the home buying process, but Sean was so helpful and informative every step of the way. He was always willing to help us get in to tour homes as soon as we asked. After our offer on the home was accepted, we always felt well informed of the status of our new home, what was expected of us during the loan process, and what we needed to prepare for before our close date. His timeline was spot on and made our lives stress-free. I would highly recommend Sean to anyone I know looking to buy a home.

Enthusiastic, Positive and Pro-Active. I'm super thankful working with Sean. He helped me buy this condo and now sell it 4 years later. I had a lot to learn about both processes and he always communicates in a way that is informative and helpful. Even with a buyer pull-out he had the listing back up and the perfect buyer in no time at all - talking me through and encouraging all the way. He also has a way with special touches like personal notes, helpful contacts and surprise drop offs (like moving boxes just when I needed them).

Sean treated us like royalty and with his vast experience in real estate we were in great hands. We had a difficult property to sell. But , Sean was persistent and as they say "Get Er Done". He had many good ideas to help sell our property. The best thing about working with Sean is that he is so personable and caring. When you finish working with him you feel like you have made a good friend. We, my wife and I, highly recommend Sean Hackney for all your real estate needs.

Sean helped me to buy my first home 5 years ago and the experience was so incredibly easy and enjoyable that I couldn't think of anyone else I would want to work with to sell my home.
Sean has a tremendous depth of knowledge of policies and programs available for buying and selling homes, stays knowledgeable about current trends, and has knack for working with people. Every year he reaches out to communicate with me, invites me to participate in events, and even offers delicious desserts for the holidays!
Whether it's buying or selling you home, you can't do any better than Sean!

Sean was recommended to me by my daughter,as Sean helped her family with their home purchase.
I really appreciated Sean listening to all of my questions and concerns and when I had anxiety about selling during Covid 19, he always put me at ease. He would rightly admit that he would not know how things would go during this time, but it was his past, extensive experience that helped him navigate the ins and outs of the changes we experienced due to the pandemic. I always
appreciated his availability to taking my
phone calls, his prompt return calls, or letting me know when he could contact me. I loved the videos he made, giving me the latest updates, it made it that much more personable.
Sean was by my side all the way, which is what a great agent is supposed to be.

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.
