"I'm not someone who leaves a lot of reviews but when its called for you make the exception.
We just recently decided to purchase a vacation property near MT Baker and were not sure how to go about it as we are from Canada.
We didn't know anyone to help us but found a listing that Brian Hefter was sell selling and reached out to him.
We talked on the phone a couple of times and then we were able to meet the next week when we came down. Brian showed us several properties that were interesting and met our needs. We had a great time getting to know each other and talk about how things work.
We ended up finding our dream property that day thanks to Brian's hard work and time. He then introduced us to the rest of the team at ReMax that we would be dealing with for the rest of the purchase.
From day one everyone has been incredibly helpful and beyond friendly to us. There have been parts of the transaction that went butter smooth and there were some large hiccup's due to the seller. I was shocked at how fast and efficient the whole office were able to find solutions. Mark Frye was able to pull a rabbit out of a hat to help with one of the situations I was getting stressed about.
When the sale finalized the team was very gracious to us and Brian came to the property and did a massive walk through to make sure everything was good. He has also offered his own time to remove some items that were left by the old owners.
The story doesn't end there. We got a call this week from the propane company that our tank was empty and the had filled it but couldn't turn the heat back on. I reached out to Brian to ask who we could call to help get it back on? He said don't worry about it. He drove 45 min to go turn it on for us.
The ReMax team is a very special group and I now consider Brian a friend.
If you are looking for professional and more importantly friendly people who will do whatever it takes to help and make you happy do yourself a favor and call them."

"Mark and his team are the best! My son and I recently closed on a house outside of Bellingham (in Sudden Valley) with Mark at the helm. He knows the best people to handle your loan, inspect the house, get your insurance, your escrow, and anything else you could ever think of (including where to get the best cinnamon rolls). We were purchasing from out of state; Mark made the whole process easy. We were able to fly up and put an offer on a house in only one weekend. (That offer thankfully fell through when Mark’s top notch home inspector found the “remodel” was just lipstick on a pig.) We flew up the following weekend and were able to make an offer on an even better house that had just come on the market! We made those offers with excitement and confidence, knowing, “That’s the one!” because Mark took the time to show us everything within my son’s limits and needs. He listened to my son’s wish list. He worked very hard on for us. Mark knows his business and provides straightforward, honest advice. He did not waste our time. He also helped my son acclimate to the town and live on his own in this great area. I will always be grateful to Mark for being there for my son. We would certainly use this team again, and recommend his team to anyone who wants to feel 100% sure they made the best purchase available! Mark is truly a first-rate realtor and a wonderful man!"
"He was always quick to reply with answers to our questions, he was very friendly. A pleasure to work with. Thank you very much for all of your help in our purchase! We will use him again!"
"Mark was very professional and was direct with what or how things would work. Since we live in Canada and my husband is handicapped, Mark made every effort to keep us from having to drive back and forth. It really was appreciated and was a wonderful experience. Mark’s wife even gave us a personal gift, which made my heart so warm from both of them. Thank you ever so much, Mark. I will pass his name on to anyone as this was such a honest interaction"

"Live in Canada and was attempting to purchase a vacation property in Washington State. I had a very poor experience trying to buy this property with another realtor that was not upfront and honest.
