Sequim may be the best retirement community in the county. Sequim received a number of retirement awards already (read several articles at Best Places to Retire). I talk to retirees several times a week, and I’ve listed some of the reasons they tell me why their retirement in Sequim is so great.
Ask a retiree in Sequim what their occupation is now, and they are likely to say something like, “Enjoying Life.” Isn’t that one of the primary goals of retirement? So what would it take to classify a town as one of the best retirement communities? If you could put together a checklist of items that you would want, what would be on that checklist?

This short list is just the tip of the iceberg. Want to have some fun conversations about retirement in the Sequim area? Next time you’ve visiting Sequim, take a walk through Carrie Blake Park, or walk along Port Williams Bay on the beach, or walk around town, and strike up a conversation with a retired couple.

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!
