It’s winter and time for blizzards, tornadoes, floods, and extreme temperature, but not in Sequim. Sequim weather is well known as mild without extremes and without all the terrible natural disasters that hit other states every winter.
Winter in Sequim naturally means colder temperatures, some overcast and gray skies, and a little rain. While we might complain a little, we are so fortunate we do not suffer from blizzards, tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, and icy cold temperatures. Many winters we don’t even have snow.
Yesterday I drove to Silverdale, which is one hour south of Sequim, and about 10 miles outside of Silverdale, it was snowing with slushy roads. On the way back to Sequim a few hours later, and once again as I got close to Sequim the roads were clean with no snow and no rain. It was overcast in Sequim, and the temperature was about 45 degrees, but I’ll take that any day over the nasty weather that is so common this time of year south and east of Sequim.
I don’t miss tornadoes (I lived in Illinois), flash floods (I lived in Vegas), blizzards (I lived in Alaska), 115 degrees or 50 below zero, so I’m thankful Sequim doesn’t have blizzards, or any of these, but Sequim weather is not perfect either. Still, on a scale of 0 to 10 where 10 is the perfect climate, I would rate Sequim a high 7.5.

I am an experienced real estate buyer, but I am not from the Sequim area. I am somewhat flexible, realistic, but also particular. So the question was, “how do you choose the RIGHT real estate agent?”
I made my appointment with Chuck on a Sunday morning in March, 2013. He showed me 5 houses. Every house he showed me was within my parameters! 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 will spend a lot of time with your agent during the process. Choose someone likable. Go with your gut. I got to know Chuck during the process, and he's a great guy!
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!
