He loves to help people and teaches two types of classes, one for first time homebuyers and one for investors in real estate.  He encourages his team to achieve their goals and helps support and guide them. When they do achieve their goal, he is the first to stand and cheer them on.
Don’s goal is to put together a team with integrity and drive. He wants them to serve their clients to the very best of their ability.  His motto: God, family then business.  Don is a Real Estate Agent with integrity to get the job done and the energy to move you.

Hannah Jones Hannah believes in the power of real estate. She knows that your home is so much more then a roof over your head. It is an investment for you, a place for your loved ones, and 4 walls which you will create priceless memories, and so much more. Finding your home or investment can be a stressful endeavor. That is why Hannah is passionate about helping people get the most value for their money without compromising the vision. Hannah shows up ready to help you achieve your goals. She is passionate about helping people realize the potential of their investments and considering their long term return both for oneself and the community.  Hannah comes from a family of real estate investors. Her great grandfather began investing in his 20’s in the Seattle area in both residential and commercial. His son took his equity and made more investments and his children took his equity and purchased their homes.  Now Hannah has followed the family tradition and built a home in Bellingham because of their investments. It is through this experience that Hannah learned the affects of generational real estate investments. Your home purchase today, could be the reason your great grandchild is able to purchase a home as well.
