Meet The Team
Rob Merhaut - Broker, Re/Max Whatcom County, Inc.
Certified Residential Specialist (CRS)
I am fully involved in nearly every aspect of Bellingham & Whatcom County residential real estate, as well as commercial and investment property sales. I represent both buyers and sellers, utilizing over a decade of local sales experience as well as over twenty years of active real estate investing and remodeling. My goal is to be as knowledgeable in my profession and as helpful to my clients as I can possibly be.
I am well schooled (formally and through experience) in my career and am constantly enriching my real estate resume through active representation of buyers and seller and continuing education. As a result of this devotion to my duty I can offer you, my client, your best choice in choosing a Realtor to work with, with a proven track record and plenty of references, upon request.
As a Certified Residential Specialist, I enjoy company with the top 4% of real estate agents nationwide. Our extensive training and continuing education leads us to close far more real estate transactions than other non-CRS agents!
I look forward to working with you.

A little more about us...
After Marine Corps Service, I moved to Bellingham in 1988 to attend WWU. Marrying Rebecca in 1999, we settled in rural Whatcom County with our son Travis, our beloved dogs, and a very spoiled cat. We live the country lifestyle while enjoying our real estate office in Bellingham. We recreate by enjoying numerous outdoor sports to include boating, hiking, skiing, and we still enjoy the occasional rugby match...Go Chuckanut Bay Rugby! We love spending time with our family & friends, gardening, birdwatching, going to antique stores on rainy days, and going to plays at the 5th Avenue Theatre in Seattle.
