Washington luxury homes are some of the most extraordinary deals in this market anywhere in the United States, but luxury homes in Washington and on the Olympic Peninsula seem to be the best kept secret. Billionaires and millionaires have been busy buying luxury homes around some of the elite areas of the country, and wealthy investors are buying homes by the dozen in Las Vegas and in key locations in Arizona.
The super wealthy International buyers are snapping up mansions in the U.S. at bargain prices with the market down and with the U.S. dollar down. Internet investor Yuri Milner paid $100 million for a Northern California mansion recently, and other foreign billionaires are buying mansions in Florida. “International buyers purchased an estimated $82 billion worth of U.S. homes in the 12 months ended on Mar. 31, a 24 percent increase from the previous 12 months, the National Association of Realtors reported in May.” [See Russians Prop Up Luxury Housing Market]
The Olympic Peninsula and the Sequim area, including Sequim Bay, Discovery Bay, and around the Strait of Juan de Fuca, are relatively unknown areas for the super wealthy. This means that the demand for Washington luxury homes is low around the Strait and a gorgeous water front or water view home can be bought at the lowest prices in decades. While this is unfortunate for sellers who are now taking a loss on the sale of their Washington luxury home, it is definitely the find of a lifetime for the buyer who can afford to buy a luxury home now.
You can have fun looking at some of the most incredible Washington luxury homes on the Olympic Peninsula and around Sequim, Washington right here at Washington Luxury Homes for Sale.

I was amazed: a real estate who listened, did his research, and didn't waste my time showing me houses I would never buy! I made an offer a few days later. That was the easy part…
Buying a house is always a stressful time in life. Advice to Buyers: choose an agent who is competent, communicates well, and has exceptional follow-up and follow-through!

You need an agent who is competent to handle and help you negotiate the issues that come up during disclosure, home inspection, appraisal, etc. Chuck's competence is superb! I got truly professional, sound, straightforward advice.
Chuck's communication skills are exceptional: phone, email, fax. He has a wonderful ability to stay "on-point" with what is actually important and doesn't lead you astray on issues that aren't so important.
Chuck's turn-around time on questions, issue resolution, etc. was virtually always within 24 hours. He follows-up, follows-through. He does what he says he will do timely. This relieves a lot of Buyer stress!
