I would not hesitate to recommend Sean Ryan and his team for ANY real estate transaction.

We have worked with him on both buying and selling and have found him to be highly professional, timely and very accommodating. Never once did he pressure or rush us. He never attempted to sway us one way or the other but listened to us and made suggestions. In fact he was honest with us if he felt a home did not match our needs. Sean is an awesome real estaate agent and a really great guy. It hs been a real pleasure to work with him and his entire team. They use the latest marketing and advances in technology and social media to go all out when marketing your home or finding your new one.

I would definitely recommend Sean and the team at NextHome Northwest Living to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

Tracy Weber (Program Office Coordinator)

We worked with Staci for a while.

We had a small budget and big dreams. Staci stuck with us and helped guide us to having an offer accepted on a house that we love. I will recommend Staci to anyone I know that is looking to buy a house, and if I ever need a realtor again I know who I'm using!

Thomas and Kyla Frearson

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!

Sean was wonderful!

He was diligent in getting our home and acreage sold. He was gracious , kind and patient with difficult people and situations. He knows his business and we would highly recommend him and his team!

Barbara Curry

Sean is extremely organized, efficient and skilled at his craft.

He went well above and beyond to help me sell my home and took most every burden that came up (organizing bids for work needing done, meeting with contractors, etc.) along the way so I could go on with day to day life uninterrupted. I appreciated his authentic spirit and the way he genuinely cared for all involved. And the outcome was phenomenal! I''ll be a client of Sean's for life, he's as kind and trustworthy as they come.

Brad Sim (Client)

Staci Ryan is one of the best realtors in the business.

She is very knowledgeable, does her research, is available to answer questions, and helped guide us through the process of selling our home. She is amazing! Staci and her company also recognize and thank their clients in many ways all through the year. It has truly been a pleasure working with her and I am recommending her to anyone thinking of buying or selling a home.

Linda Robinson

Staci was great through the whole process of purchasing our new home!

When we needed her to find answers she wouldn't hesitate to pester/annoy/hound the seller for them. She was able to help us navigate the whole process, even when things got bumpy and it really felt like she cared a great deal. I personally hope I will never have to purchase a home again, but if I did I would definitely contact Staci right away.

Ty Visser

Sean and his team did a wonderful marketing and sale for us!

Sold our home in 3 days! The process was smooth throughout, any questions we had were answered immediately. The whole team are professional, courteous and knowledgeable. Would always be my first choice in the future! Thank you Sean!!!!!!

Phillip & Karen Fields

I bought and sold a home with Sean's expert guidance.

It is reassuring to work with a man at the top of his craft. He is knowledgeable, honorable, energetic, resourceful and prudent. If you understand the term "mensch," Sean is a mensch.

Frank Paneno CPA (Certified Public Accountant)

Thank you Sean for your tireless work in selling my rental home.

There were several obstacles that came up in the process and you handled all of them with your calm and friendly demeanor. Thanks so much for everything!


Thank you Staci for the professional and awesome job you did in assisting us with our recent home purchase.

In Whatcom County's tight real estate market you need a realtor that will go to bat for you and you did just that. This was one of the smoothest home purchases my husband and I have made to date!!!! Staci and her team are responsive and awesome!!!

Paula Keeler (owner Advanced Health Center)

I've known Staci as a realtor and friend for 14 years.

She is always on top of it and is very professional. We purchased our first home with Staci, sold it, and just bought our dream home and a piece of property all within the last 9 years. I know she will always be there to answer our questions and give us sound guidance and advice. Staci is a great communicator and works extremely hard to serve her clients! I highly recommend her service!

Sarah Ferris (Teacher)

We have just finished closing on our home in Bellingham.

From beginning to end Staci was an incredible asset to have on our team. Throughout the entire process Staci was such a pleasure to work with, a great communicator with a positive attitude. Due to an error committed 20 years ago by the original title company, our closing was delayed two times and took an extra 5 weeks. We give credit to Staci for her persistence, resilience and patience in providing the assistance, guidance and contacts we needed to finally close on our home. We are incredibly grateful to Staci and highly recommend her services.

David B Smith (Business Owner)

Sean is responsive, assertive, possesses a tireless positive focus, and supports his clients like he would his friends and family.

I recommend him to any and all!

Adam Shaffer (Client)

Staci is the sweetest human, and most patient.

She has stuck with us through all of our searching and gone to bat for us without hesitation. She loves her job, and it shows. She is talented and so knowledgeable about this market.

Lisa Aamot (Endless property hunter)

Sean went above and beyond to secure us the house we wanted and helped get us in very fast.

All his hard work was very appreciated. We highly recommend him and his business.

Devin Kellogg (Executive Sous Chef)

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!

Laurie Bertsche

Staci was absolutely fantastic!

She was so helpful each step of the way thru the process of selling my home. She was always available for questions and went above and beyond resulting in getting multiple offers and going above asking price! I would absolutely recommend Staci to any friend who is wanting to sell or buy a home.

Jessie B

This was my second time working with Sean, and he didn't disappoint.

Despite working with an out of town seller and an uncooperative tenant, Sean made the buying process easy. His communications skills are top notch, he knows the market, and he's very pleasant to work with. I'd say I'll use him again, but I'm pretty sure we found our forever home. Thanks Sean!

JASON ARDT (Engineering Technician)

We have Known Staci for many years and have bought and sold houses with her.

She is always there for us throughout the process and is true expert in Bellingham Real Estate.

Kevin Fetter (Fire Captain)

Staci was amazing and such a joy to work with.

She definitely has the patience for first time home buyers. Communication is important to me, and she responded to every single question and concern in a timely manner. I highly recommend her!

Andrea (Retail management )

Staci and Sean are absolutely a fantastic team.

They set the bar, and its high, for the professionals in the real estate industry. Their support staff is absolutely amazing and have a complete understanding of whats happening and when, thus keeping the customer WELL informed at every step. Why use Staci? Because professionalism, market knowledge, compassion and honesty are the values you want and these are the core values you will see. Simply put there is NO one we trust more and therefore we will ALWAYS use Staci as our realtor!!

Scott Taylor (Owner Bright Outlook Window Cleaning)

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.

Anne Watson (homeowner)

Sean helped our family sell our house and buy our new home in Bellingham, WA.

He had a great team to help make the process smooth and much less stressful than our previous moves. We were impressed with the level of service he provided. Details such as offering an interior designer to stage our home and the 360 degree video attracted many showings and we sold our house in two weeks. We are grateful that Sean negotiated 3 days for us to move out after closing and that made all the difference! Sean is thoughtful and on top of everything. I highly recommend Sean Ryan and would definitely use him again for future real estate needs.

Michelle Hsu (chiropractor)

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!

Ray Rodriguez (Opinionated Gentleman)

We have bought and sold 5 different homes from Sean.

He has been very professional and prompt to get things done. He is a pleasure to work with. Thanks Sean

Heather Bayless (Secretary )

I've bought three houses and sold one with Sean.

While buying and selling homes can sometimes be a stressful process, Sean helps make it go smoothly. He is incredibly knowledgeable and always has your best interest in mind. I highly recommend him.

William Brenton

We were moving from Newberg, OR up to Bellingham gor work and needed to purchase a house.

We contacted Sean and he got work right away finding us some where to live. He made the house buying process smooth and with very little stress. He was always available by phone or email if we ever had questions or concerns. Sean and his team made us feel important and not just a number.

Ben Adelman (Physical Therapist Assistant)

We really enjoyed working with Staci!

She stayed on top of things, responded quickly and checked in often. This was especially important to us as we were moving from a different state. We would highly recommend Staci to anyone looking into buying or selling their home.

Erica Egner (Creative Director)

Sean Ryan and his team are truly second to none when it comes to any real estate needs!

When my wife and I were shopping for our first house, we had a tough time finding an agent who really seemed to care about us and our vision. Through a referral we decided to give Sean a call. He was showing us houses by that afternoon and we were homeowners before we knew it. Within a few years we outgrew the first house, and we had no doubt Sean was the guy to help us upgrade. He's never pushed us towards something we didn't want to do, but has always been informative. Sean kept our stress at a minimum and took care of everything needed in order to sell... Prep walk-through's, multiple market analysis, insight/advise on improvements, photos, list timing and whatever else that took place behind the scenes. Meanwhile he was also helping us find our 'next home'. In almost no time we accepted a buyers offer and had our own offer accepted on the future house. Today we are closing on both! It was absolutely a team effort, and that's one of the things we appreciate most about our agent! Not only are they experienced, trustworthy, reliable and personable, but the entire team has been there for us every step of the way. Sean goes above and beyond for us, but even the times when he's unavailable in a moment's notice, we never have to worry. Everyone contributed at critical times for us. We'd like to thank Lisa Tipton for her work behind the scenes and for being available to meet us at random hours. We'd like to thank Staci Ryan for being a HUGE part of getting our offer accepted. To the rest of the Ryan family for putting your night's on hold for our last minute inspections! And last but not least a special thank you to Sean Ryan for putting in all the work for us over time. We appreciate it! Five stars!

TJ Foster

Not only was Sean helpful in finding our home, but he is incredibly trustworthy and knowledgeable as well.

I would recommend him to all of my friends and family.

Kate Oost (Psychologist )

We met Sean over 13 years ago when selling one of our first businesses - With his 'can do' attitude, warmth and experience he quickly became an extension of our family.

Sean has been our go to person ever since; recommending to friends and family alike - they have all had very positive experiences. After moving to the East Coast we made the tough decision to sell a home we had for nearly twenty years --- Sean was the only one we would trust to such an emotional and important step in our lives. It only seemed right that he be part of the closure of our PNW journey. Sean, even from afar, made us feel comfortable and in good hands - just as we suspected he would. I would highly recommend Sean for selling your current home or helping you to find your next. Best Always, the Prendergast Family

Alieca Prendergast (Vice President Program Management; Aerospace )

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!

ANDREW A ANDERSEN (Small business owner)

Staci is a fantastic realtor!

She has always gone above and beyond! We recently used her to find our forever home, a beautiful little hobby farm that we are in love with! She made everything SO easy! She made communicating and paperwork quick and painless and digital!! Such a great experience! Thanks Staci and NextHome!

Ashley Eidsvik

Sean was exceptional!

We purchased a home from out of state. When we came to visit he showed us a handful of homes that met our criteria. He really learned what we were looking for. After sending us numerous listings we had him view a home on our behalf. His input and industry knowledge were impressive. The purchase process was smooth and easy. We found the perfect home for our growing family. Highly recommend Sean!

Lindsey Adelman (Full time Mom)

Sean is such an awesome realator.

From start to finish, no details missed. He checked in with us with each step, every choice and took care of everything. He made the process as stress free as possible and really got us exactly what we wanted. We couldn't be happier with our home and he was a huge part of making that happen. I would recommend him to anyone buying in the Washington area. If we ever buy again, we will definitely be using him for help!

Natalie Kellogg (Dental Assistant )

Becky and I are very thankful that Staci was referred to us!

Our confidence in her grew throughout the three weeks she worked with us. Staci helped us find the right house. She guided us in evaluating everything that was important to consider in making a good decision. She assisted us in completing everything required to successfully close. The end result is total confidence we purchased a house we'll be happy to own for many years.

Steve Moltumyr

We appreciate what Sean did to help us get into our dream home.

He provided great advice on all the different areas in the region, and educated us on what to look out for when buying a home in the Pacific Northwest (we relocated from Texas). Everything worked out great and we are truly glad we chose Sean and his team as our realty company.

James Carneiro (Trade Consultant)

Professional, responsive, attentive, upbeat.

I recommend her!

Lindon Keeler (Doctor of Chiropractic)

Sean was great to work with!

He was professional and helpful, and had a quick response time to any of our questions or concerns we had with buying our house. We would choose Sean Ryan again!

Luke & Amy

Excellent service!

Was quick to reply to our numerous questions and was instrumental in both quickly selling our old house and negotiating our new house.

Sandy Brenton

Sean was very thorough during the entire selling process.

He was good at describing the process during difficult negotiations and was transparent on every issue. I would definitely recommend him to others.

Luke Mason (Maintenance Coordinator)

Sean was a pleasure to work with while we searched for our home in Bellingham.

It is evident that Sean's priority is his long-term relationship with you as a client. There were several houses along the way with which he could have achieved a quick sale but he supported us in finding the right house for us even though it extended his work several months. He is a nice guy, honest and doesn't pressure his clients, which are the characteristics that I most value in a realtor.

Jason Oost

Sean is amazing!

He makes buying and selling houses easy and hassle free! We have bought 3 houses with him and sold one. He is not just our Relator but family friend. He really takes care of his clients, makes them feel appreciated and is extremely knowledgable. We have recommended him to many people and will continue to do so! Thanks Sean!

Erin Shaffer (school counselor)

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.

Camellia Chanel Friesen

Staci was recommended to me from a friend a couple of years ago.

..I literally have never met her! The house I put on the market was a rental for the past five years, and Staci helped me navigate the issues dealing with selling a house with tenants,,,and to say the part of it was simple or easy! Staci clearly helped pave the path for finding a solid buyer, as well as working with "challenging" tenants during the process. I appreciate your tenacity Staci...and getting the job done well. Your communication with me was fast and always in a professional manner. Thank you!

Steve Hauser

Staci has been such a helpful mentor to my husband and I while we got ready to purchase a home.

She started over a year ago helping us meet with a lender to talk about what we needed as a down payment and has stood by us while we prepared to buy! She helped us land literally the most perfect home for us and ALWAYS answered any questions, no matter how many came her way. We are so greatful and she has our highest recommendation!

Rebekah Wilson (Esthetician)

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.

Steven Atkinson (Dairy Pharmaceutical Sales)

Staci was patient and kind and helped us find our forever home!

We had just one day to house shop since we were coming from out of town, and Staci was very accommodating to our needs.

Amy Warenski (Insurance Agent)

Staci is great to work with.

Excellent follow through and great at negotiation. She made my home purchase smooth and easy.

Troy Pazaski

Thank you Staci for always responding in a timely manner with a smile on your face and ready to deal with whatever problem there was at the time.

You really made our selling experience stress free.

Tricia Fetter

Sean helped ud to buy a home in Bellingham, WA.

It was our first time to buy a home, and he guided us through the entire purchase process. Very knowledgable and responsive. I recommend anyone looking for a house in the area should work with him.

Min Park

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.

Laura Syvertson (Home Buyer)

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 always responsive to our questions and needs. He would rearrange his schedule to meet us at our convenience. He was very knowledgeable concerning issues with houses that we were unaware of.

"Sean is beyond exceptional at his craft - everyone generally says the same about their trusted realtor but truly, Sean and team set themselves apart. I seldom leave reviews, usually only if the experience was one of a kind, good or bad. And I’m compelled to share our positive experience here: In a very thinly supplied and competitive PNW market, we identified a home we loved that was listed for sale by owner. From initial contact on through to closing, Sean graciously and expertly navigated what was essentially the work of two realtors. So much so that the selling owners, old school builders who have ALWAYS sold without representation, have elected to utilize Sean exclusively to list their builds moving forward. I can hardly think of a better testimony than that."

"You can't find a better agent than Sean Ryan! He's helped me buy and sell homes multiple times and every time he's gone above and beyond. After writing 9 competitive offers on houses around Bellingham, he recently helped me to get a house at asking price! In addition, he helped me to negotiate a replaced sewer line before closing, and walked with me every step of the last 6 months in this difficult market! If you need an agent to help you buy or to help you sell a home, reach out to Sean!"

"Caring, responsive, knowledgeable about the area, and a great negotiator, Sean made our home buying experience the best it could be. In this hyper-competitive real estate market, having an agent like Sean was essential. He knows the area well and has strong relationships with other realtors and the real estate community. Another plus — he's built and remodeled homes. Our forever home turned out to be a fixer-upper. Sean (and the home inspector he recommended) were able to give us some solid and realistic feedback about the home's potential as a remodel so we could move ahead and purchase confidently. We can't recommend Sean highly enough!"

by Valerie Day
"I've been involved in more than a dozen real estate transactions, both residential and commercial. I can say with confidence that, at least, 90% of real estate agents are average, at best. I can also say with certainty that Sean Ryan is among the very best I've ever worked with. He communicates well, he is professional, and has excellent local and market knowledge. All of this translates to two very important factors: 1) getting the best possible financial result on a transaction, and 2) Ensuring the transaction is completed in a painless and problem free manner.I wouldn't even consider another agent in the area. Sean comes with my highest possible recommendation."
