Gabe Ng recommends Sean Ryan

Sean is an amazing person who has found the career that exploits his greatest strengths. He is not a salesman but a servant leader who works graciously for his clients. Sean is very informed and intelligent with all the specifics needed to buy or sell a house. He is honest and his recommendations are spot on! He made our home buying experience as amazing as it could be and we are grateful to have Sean along side of us during this life changing Adventure. We would recommend anyone in the area looking to sell or buy a home to use Sean, as he made the experience straight forward. Thanks Sean! We Appreciate you!

Annelise Snyder recommends Sean Hackney

Sean is amazing! We worked with him to buy a house in Bellingham for our upcoming move, and he was so helpful with the entire process. He's been in the area a long time and was able to provide useful information about neighborhoods, send us listings that met our criteria, and send over videos he took on house tours for days when we couldn't make the trip to see listings in person. Sean was incredibly organized and fast when we expressed interest in houses, and was very much on top of things when we were ready to submit offers. He's a true professional who takes his work seriously, and he played an essential role in helping us buy a home that we're very excited about. I strongly recommend Sean to anyone searching for their next home!

Marli Schoessler recommends Sean Hackney

I can't speak highly enough of my experience with Sean Hackney. From day 1, Sean was extremely responsive and had great suggestions for homes to view based on what I was looking for. He was very accommodating and patient in showing me, a first-time homebuyer, houses and explained to me every detail and how it could impact maintenance cost. I would, and will, recommend Sean to anyone in the market to purchase a home. I look forward to the opportunity to work with him and the NextHome Northwest Living Team again.

Anne Harding recommends Sean Hackney

Sean was a joy to work with. He helped my brother and I sell our Dad's house when he passed away. We live out of state and he helped us coordinate repairs and clear out the last few things in the garage. He did an amazing job of putting together a virtual tour and photos. The house was on the market one weekend and sold for the price that we wanted. I can't recommend him enough.

Joe Doughty recommends Sean Hackney

Sean was awesome! He was very knowledgeable and made the home buying process as stress free as it could be. As a first time home buyer, Sean did a great job explaining all the complicated parts of purchasing a home in a simple manner. Sean was always available for a phone call or a text to answer any questions we had and we felt supported through the entire process. Would definitely recommend his services!

Mark Lytle recommends Sean Hackney

Retired Chemist

I was referred to Sean by an out-of-state realtor who knew of Sean's skills, experience, and professionalism. Sean developed a plan to sell my home and kindly coached me along each step. Sean's team provided impressive support in marketing my home. Sean actually fielded offers on Superbowl Sunday resulting in the sale of my home on a schedule he predicted based on his accurate metrics. Sean is hardworking, resourceful, and intelligent. Sean also has a great sense of humor, and he is a pleasure to work with.

Jason Kumle recommends Sean Hackney

Sean and his team were extremely helpful with our home purchase. We were moving from south Texas to Washington and because of Sean’s professionalism and team work with the mortgage company, we were able to close on our new home while in transit.

Camellia Chanel Friesen recommends Staci Ryan

It was great working with Staci to find our house and home. It was not an easy task but Staci was always super-hopeful and confident. It was a pleasure meeting up with her to look at houses because she is always so cheerful. She was also great at getting us appointments to see houses on short notice, and if she couldn't be there herself, she still made sure we got to see the place either with her husband (they're a realtor team) or an assistant. She also made sure the technical difficulties were ironed out for our property notifications.

We can't say enough good things about our experience of buying and selling our home with Sean Hackney. Sean was there every step of the way! Sean's expertise in the field and patience with us were only outdone by his excitement for us in this new chapter of our lives. He supported us through every aspect and was emotionally invested in our journey. All of the little touches along the way were so unexpected and fun--from beautiful pamphlets, professional videos, and fun signage (who doesn't love a cute dog?!) to decorative keys, balloons, and welcome home goodies. It is obvious that Sean LOVES what he does, and has the knowledge, experiences, and expertise to make your Next Home the right one for you!

Working with Stacy was a truly wonderful experience. Communication was top notch, she was always available and quick to respond to any and all questions. Her and her staff were very professional, flexible and considerate of our schedule.
My partner and I would recommend Stacy to anyone looking to purchase a home.

Senior Buyer - Aerospace Electronics

Sean came highly recommended to me from a family member & he was absolutely wonderful to work with. He guided me through the entire process, so I knew just what to expect and he kept me updated throughout. He was such a pleasure to work with and so easy to talk to I felt as relaxed as one could feel selling a home in this crazy market! I highly recommend Sean for anyone looking to buy or sell, he does not disappoint!

Michael J. Paolisso recommends Sean Hackney

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!

Anita Merina and Michael Paolisso recommend Sean Hackney

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.

Ben Johnson recommends Sean Hackney

Sean was awesome. As a first time buyer Sean treated me like family every step of the way. Sean was quick to send over homes that matched what I was looking for as soon as they hit the market. Sean responded to any questions that I had and was quick to set up appointments to go tour homes I was interested in.

On move in day Sean was there and just as excited as I was. He helped with the move in process and even had a house warming gift for me!

Can’t thank Sean enough. Would definitely recommend.

Theresa Erickson recommends Sean Hackney

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!

Krista Cain recommends Sean Hackney

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!
