Living in Whatcom County means heading down to the rivers, lakes and the shore in the summer and driving up to the mountains and snuggling by the fire in the winters. Those who choose to explore and embrace all the Whatcom County has to offer know that even if we leave for a season, we will always find our way back to the Pacific Northwest. That is why Whatcom House Hunters is a team of Whatcom County locals working to help clients find their place in this beautiful part of the planet we call home. We use our knowledge of the area to help sellers’ market their homes in Whatcom County better than anyone in town.

Rob began living in Bellingham while attending Western Washington University for his bachelor’s degree and fell in love with the area. He settled down here with his wife Rebecca and son Travis over 20 years ago and found his forever home in the East County. Rob chooses to make the long commute from Acme to our office in Bellingham everyday because of his passion for rural living. He and his wife love walking down to the Nooksack River almost every night in the summer with their dogs.

 Leigh Rae, our marketing director started living in Whatcom County while attending Western Washington University as well. Leigh Rae and her husband Paul have settled in Ferndale with their cat and they enjoy their quiet neighborhood and friendly neighbors in Northwest Whatcom County. Her degree in marketing gives the Whatcom House Hunters Team an edge on advertising that others don’t have, and her bubbly personality makes her a great addition to our team.

I was born in Ferndale, raised in Lynden and have lived all over Whatcom County since. Recently, I moved over to Eastern Washington to attend school at Washington State University, but I quickly learned that Whatcom County will always be home to me. I couldn’t help but miss watching sunsets at Birch Bay, wakeboarding on Lake Whatcom and snowboarding up at Mount Baker while I was gone. While I do plan on going back to Eastern Washington to finish my degree at WSU, Whatcom County is where my heart will always be.
