A Good Real Estate Agent is a Valuable Resource When Moving Home
When you are relocating to a new area, a good real estate agent can sell you a house but a great agent will sell you a home. The difference is simple: a house is just a building but a home is a place where you are happy to live, have a job and are able to enjoy everything your new location has to offer. A good real estate agent in Bellingham knows that making you comfortable with the area is the best way to take some of the stress out of buying a new home.
Real estate sales in Bellingham have enjoyed consistent success over the past few years and All Services Real Estate is ready to help you buy your new home. Derek Worchel knows the area and can help narrow your search for the perfect property by neighborhood style, quality and schools as well as convenience to the lifestyle options that interest you most.
With so many growing businesses and industries, Bellingham is a great place to get a fresh start or move up in your career. Health care, led by St. Joseph Hospital and education with opportunities at Western Washington University, several community colleges and a host of top K – 12 schools lead the list of the largest employers in the city. Software development, engineering, manufacturing and refinery jobs also have a lot to offer.
Bellingham is ideally situated on the Bellingham Bay and only a short drive from Mount Baker providing a wide range of recreational choices. Skiing, mountain biking, hiking, kayaking and all sorts of activities keep residents and tourists busy. Annual events include the Ski to Sea Relay Race encompassing 93.5 miles and seven different sports, the Scottish Highland Games and the Lummi Stommish Water Festival.
Downtown offers plenty of options for social and cultural enrichment and enjoyment with the Fairhaven Summer Solstice Art Walk, plenty of museums, theaters and art shops as well as many events open to the public at WWU. Throughout Whatcom County, you can experience numerous fairs, festivals, picnics and holiday activities all year long.
Bellingham has been voted ‘Best’ for a variety of categories by magazines and surveys:
- The West’s Best Places to Live
- Best Paddling Town
- Ten Best Beer Cities
- The EPA’s Green Power Partner of the Year
A relatively small population of under 35,000 gives Bellingham a home town feeling but there is nothing small town about the jobs, leisure activities and services available. The picturesque location provides a sense of peace and separation from big city congestion. The proximity to both Seattle (90 minutes away) and Vancouver (60 minutes away), however, makes Bellingham an ideal location for ease of travel when you want something a bit more.
