Whatcom County Real Estate

In my 25 years of being a real estate broker, I’ve been involved in hundreds of transactions; but quantity isn’t the most-important thing to judge a broker on. The experience I’ve gained from working with a unique property, buyer, and seller each transaction is invaluable—and much more qualifying than a simple number of transactions. When you have as much experience working in real estate as I do, you get to see some challenging situations—and even better, you get to solve those problems for your client. After 25 years in this profession, I have the necessary skills to solve most problems and provide you with the best service possible.

Everything I’ve done in my career has been in the best interest of my clients. That is why I’m always honest with my clients and why I am not afraid to have candid discussions with them in order to get them an outcome they’re pleased with.

I’ve been around real estate my entire life so it was only natural for me to find a career as a broker. My father was a commercial broker in Seattle for 45 years and gave me a strong appreciation for working in real estate. Before finding my way into real estate, however, I had a few different jobs and lived in a few different places. After receiving an Honorable Discharge from the Army at the ripe old age of 20, I began working on a fishing boat in Alaska before returning to the Seattle. I then worked as a cook and in construction for a time before getting my broker’s license. After a few years in Seattle, I moved back to my hometown of Bellingham and I’ve been here ever since.

While not at work, I enjoy spending time with my teenage son, whom I co-parent with my ex-wife. I also spend my time travelling, camping, quading, skiing, golfing, and hiking.

I consider myself somewhat of an expert on Bellingham and Whatcom County. I love to explore my area—I’ve been on every street in Bellingham and nearly all the roads in Whatcom County. If you have any questions about relocating to Whatcom County, the real estate market, or Bellingham in general, I’d be happy to answer those for you. Between Sally Webb (my partner of 10 years) and I, we know just about everything there is to know about the real estate market in this area; and we’d love to give you a tour.
