Steve & Shara Benner recommends Sean Hackney

After years of discussion, when we finally decided to list our home we weren’t in a hurry and wanted to be in control of the process. We had nothing pushing us and did not want to compromise our priorities, so we knew it would require an agent with patience and perseverance. Sean listened to our needs, provided informative market data and wise counsel, while ultimately letting us drive the process. He was an outstanding partner and the NextHome team did a fabulous job of marketing our home. He ultimately helped us find the perfect buyers who will be a great fit for our home and neighborhood as we close one chapter and move on to the next. A huge thanks to Sean and the entire NextHome team!!! View More Info at

Senior Account Manager for a niche MES company

I am a real senior and never ever thought that I would be able to live in my own home. This makes me a total novice in the real estate area.
If it wasn't for Sean I might not have thought it possible to get my own place but also probably given up in the process for lack of knowledge and discouragement.
Sean was there every step of the way, patiently answered all my questions and showed me all the possibilities.
Sean is trustworthy, never ever pushy and very supportive.
His expertise brought this transaction to a very successful closure.
Sean came highly recommended and rightly so.
Thank you so very much for helping me start a whole new chapter in my life. View More Info at

I was shocked at how smooth and low stress our first time home buying experience was, and that is in large part due to Sean’s expertise, market knowledge, personal connections, optimism and amiability, and responsiveness to our wants and needs. He was recommended to us by family and we will for sure extend the recommendation to any others in need of a local agent. View More Info at

I was lucky enough to be referred to Sean by a trusted friend and could not have been happier with the outcome. Whether you're a first time home buyer like myself or have been through it all before, Sean is always available for guidance and information. Not knowing what I didn't know was a tough spot to be in and Sean helped me through the process and advocated for me even when I was away at work for multiple days with limited phone access. Do yourself a favor and go with someone you can trust and someone you'll regard as a friend by the end of the process. Can't say enough good things about him. Thank you Sean! View More Info at

Anne & Brent Willen recommends Sean Hackney

In the current real estate marketplace where buyers have access to a number of resources to access listings and we often assume as consumers that if we “find” the house, that we’ve done the lions-share of the work and sometimes this may be true, but in our case, Sean and his team of professionals were able to bridge our gap in knowledge in a new location and were able to negotiate a price reduction after inspection that made a cosmetic fixer a viable option for us. Sean helped us understand potential value and the trends in the local market and along with his guidance on final offer, we were able to make a smart decision. We are very happy with our purchase and highly recommend Sean because of the depth he goes to in support of his customer. View More Info at

When my friend recommended Sean to us, she said "I recommend him as a realtor and a person." She wasn't kidding. Sean made relocating to Bellingham from the Midwest a breeze. He was gracious and willing to chat with us about the market before we even decided to move. Once here, he was the absolute best guide through this quirky and unfamiliar market helping us understand the neighborhoods, housing options and always having our backs. He has a great way of lightly playing devil's advocate that helps you see your decisions in a new light. Helpful in a market that moves fast. I only wish he could have helped us sell our place in Chicago. View More Info at

Sean has been wonderful in every facet. In 2015, Sean was referred to us and helped educate us about the Pacific Northwest and buy the perfect house. In 2018, we chose Sean to sell our home when given a job relocation during the winter months. His knowledge of the local area, professionalism, and local networking were key to us getting our home sold quickly during a slower season. Above all, Sean makes you feel like family and keeps in touch with clients throughout the years. You can't go wrong with Sean for buying or selling. View More Info at

Process Control Engineer

Sean worked with me when buying my home in washington, I had such a positive experience with him helping me find the exact home I wanted that I went back to him when it was time to sell it. The first thing that made him stand out was his concept of home sale competition in deciding the sale price, which was significantly higher than other brokers estimates. It was a relatively poor time of year to sell my home, and I was worried about having it on the market for a long time. Those fears were completely unfounded, not only did he find multiple buyers within a couple of months, but he managed to get a very good sale price through hard work and an expert opinion. If you want the best price, fastest sale, and an all around excellent agent, Sean is your guy. View More Info at

I can't imagine either buying or selling a house in Whatcom County without Sean. Okay, that's not true -- I can imagine it because I tried once and it wasn't a good experience. Sean is one of the hardest working people I know. He's smart, ethical, and (perhaps most importantly) kind. His strong focus on service doesn't end when the deal is done - it continues, and continues, and continues.

In the last 10 years Sean has helped me find two houses and sell two other houses. He's also helped my parents and in-laws find houses as well as various friends. He is, without a doubt, the only realtor in Whatcom County I would send friends and relatives to. View More Info at

Sean was recommended to my husband and I last summer when we first started looking for a house in Bellingham. We thought our wonderful house in Santa Cruz would sell in a week, and we eagerly looked at high-end houses in Bellingham in anticipation of the sale. Sean happily acquainted us with the many virtues of Bellingham and its houses.
However, the weeks turned into months and our house still didn't sell. We came back several times to Bellingham: each time we were more cautious as we adjusted the price range of houses we could afford. Sean didn't miss a beat. He never made us feel uncomfortable about the lower price range. He gave us good advice about reading the market, timing an offer, and making sure we'd get a good value in a tightening market.
In January, with an offer on our Santa Cruz house finally in hand, only 3 houses remaining on the Bellingham market met our criteria. Sean's help was invaluable: he helped us to clarify which house was our best bet, advised us on getting a good price, and helped us navigate the inspection process to determine that the house was in fact a good value for us. We closed yesterday! Very excited be moving in on Monday! View More Info at
