Ratings & Reviews

Galen is great. It was hard for us to choose an agent because we have several friends in the industry, but in the end Galen was the perfect guy to help us buy our house. Galen is responsive, professional, and knows all of the ins and outs of real estate.<br/><br/>Our purchase had several unexpected hiccups that all ended up working out due to Galen's attention. He is far and away the most business-like agent I've ever met. In an industry that is sometimes disorganized, Galen is truly a professional and it shows from the first interaction until the last.<br/><br/>I would highly reccomend his service if you are looking to buy or sell your home. While he has never sold anything for me, his help with our purchase makes my recommendation very easy.

Showed home in 2014 in Dewey, WA 98226.

Galen helped my family and I move into our dream home just before Christmas. I found him very attentive and responsive to our questions and concerns. He offered several options for each juncture and decision point during the process and gave us recommendation on how to proceed when we asked. I highly recommend working with him when you are ready to find your home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Sunnyland, Bellingham, WA.

We bought our first home with Galen. We met him at an open house and felt an immediate connection. As first-time-homebuyers, we had no clue about the process. Galen was patient with us as we looked at a dozen houses. We liked that Galen has contracting experience, so he helped us assess our inspection results and helped us look for things in a house that might be problematic (knob and tube wiring, a bathroom off the kitchen, etc). He is also very practical, and laid back. We felt like Galen made an effort to really understand our needs in a home.

Ultimately, Galen helped us find the perfect home - we could not have done it without him! He is very responsive, and you can tell that he genuinely cares about his clients.

Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2014 in Bellingham, WA.

Galen is very knowledgeable of the market and was very responsive to our needs, both as buyers and sellers. He gave us honest feedback, and worked to make sure we found a home that was right for us and met our needs. We will be using him in the future when a family member moves into the area.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $750K in South Hill, Bellingham, WA.

Galen was personable, reliable, and knowledgeable. He quickly knew what style of house appealed to us and worked for our family. His background in construction was very helpful as we looked at houses -- especially the older houses that needed work. We would definitely use him again when and if we ever list the dream house he helped us find. We highly recommend Galen.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Deming, WA.

Galen was great to deal with. After we first got in touch with him and told him we were looking but weren't necessary in a hurry, he kept an eye on listings for us for several months and identified the perfect home with his first recommendation -- no easy task since our criteria was essentially that we'd know it when we saw it. Once we started the process of making an offer, etc, he made himself available to talk to us anytime something came up, and the people he referred us to were equally excellent and accommodating. He set us up with great lenders, an excellent local title company, and an inspector who really knew his stuff, going far above and beyond the norm in terms of thoroughness and talking us through all potential problems. Galen and the seller's agent communicated with each other extremely well, and he stayed focused on our needs through each step of the purchase. The whole process was smooth sailing with Galen at the helm. Highly recommend.

Galen is an excellent real estate agent. He knows the market well - single and multi family properties, has great negotiating skills and always keeps track of timelines and legal issues. I highly recommend him.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Bellingham, WA.

Galen recently worked with my wife and I on the purchase of our new home. We always felt he was working for us in every way. He was very helpful in the difficult negotiations. He was always accessible and easy to communicate with making the process much easier. Now we are very excited to move in to our new place in the next few days.

Bought a home in 2014 in Birchwood, Bellingham, WA 98225.

Our whole experience with Galen was excellent. He quickly keyed in on what we were looking for, and selected properties that were within our price-range and needs. He was quick to respond to questions and setting up showings. His knowledge of the market and his skill at negotiation resulted in us buying the home we wanted at a substantially reduced price.

We highly recommend Galen. He is young, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. And most impressively he is deeply caring about his work and his clients. He made our home buying experience fun.

Galen's communications skills were essential in negotiating this purchase. He is very sensitive and attentive to the needs of his clients, and it was a pleasure dealling with him in both our search, and negotiating. Galen is simply a pleasure to work with.
