Port Angeles and Sequim Real Estate Broker Chuck Marunde is known by many in the area as a real estate attorney (ret.) and now as a Broker/Owner of Sequim & Port Angeles Real Estate, LLC. What most people don’t know is that he has been operating below the radar for many years as an accomplished author.
Chuck has a very large Internet presence through many websites and blogs that he created and hosts, starting with his first website in 1995, which won national awards for being “content-rich.” Chuck has published 100’s of articles on the Internet. His articles are nationally syndicated and have been published online with Reuters, the Chicago Tribune, and the Wall Street Journal. Chuck sits on the panel of real estate experts for the Seattle PI Blog, for eZineArticles.com, and is affiliated with a number of other online organizations.
He also is a freelancer for Ultimate Grappling Magazine, Pacific Northwest Home Owner Magazine, and he is the editor of the online version of Topix news for the cities of Sequim and Port Angeles, Washington.
Chuck first started writing in Alaska in the early 1980’s, and when he isn’t showing houses or solving complex real estate issues, he is writing. “I love to write, and real estate is what I know best, so I write about real estate.”
Chuck practiced real estate law for 20 years, and because of his love for real estate, he says, “I couldn’t stay away from the transactions end of real estate. I love helping people buy and sell. I’ve handled almost every angle of real estate, from buying and selling to investing, foreclosures, short sales, real estate partnerships and joint ventures, to business development and marketing and sales.

Author, technology guru, Internet expert, lawyer, Realtor, marketing expert and salesman Chuck Marunde is no longer operating under the radar. The Internet is a powerful tool, even for the purpose of bringing Chuck into the radar zone, where he can be found by buyers and sellers. “I love helping people solve their real estate problems, and right now the biggest challenge people have is selling their homes or land in a slow market. In my opinion, now is a good time to buy, and it’s a good time to sell if you handle the pricing and negotiating with wisdom.”
Chuck raised his family in Sequim, including his oldest son, Jesse Marunde, who was Internationally famous as a professional strongman. Jesse came in second at the World’s Strongest Man Contest in Chengdu, China a few years ago. Chuck’s middle son, Bristol Marunde, continues the Marunde tradition in athletics by competing as a professional mixed martial arts fighter. Reflecting on Bristol’s career choice, Chuck said, “Fighting in the cage is just another form of negotiating, although it is much more assertive than the kind of negotiating I do in real estate.”
