Client Testimonials

The day after I asked Jerry to be my realtor I went into his office and he had countless listings that were In my price range and houses that would have been perfect for me! Then when we found a house I really liked he was able to get me in to view the house the first day it was on the market and  then put an offer on it. Then, to top it off when I got the keys to house house the previous owners left it a mess an Jerry had cleaners come so the house looked amazing again. Jerry is an awesome guy and a great realtor, and I would recommend him to anyone and everyone who asks!”

“Jerry and Kassi are AMAZING, they had our house listed right away, amazing pictures inside and outside, and because of their hard work in getting it listed so fast we had offers the next day. Jerry and Kassi have also worked very hard in helping us find our next home. They are both very dedicated  to working for you as a seller or buyer and helping in any way possible to make the transition smooth and stress free, including meeting on weekends and evenings. I would recommend them both.”

“I have known Jerry for a very long time and can’t say enough good things about him not only as a real estate agent but also as a person. Buying a home is one of, if not the biggest, decisions/purchases one will make in a lifetime. As such it is extremely important, in my opinion, to work with an agent/person that you trust and respect among other things. Jerry is all those things and more. Jerry is a great agent who made the home buying process go very smoothly for my wife and I.  He removed many of the stresses you hear about when buying your first home as he explained the home purchasing process to us up front  from viewing homes to righting offers/negotiating through the closing process and ultimately receiving the keys. He coordinated all the showings, handled all the negotiations with the selling agent, and was knowledgeable not only about the home buying process itself, but also, was helpful with the inspection process, obtaining financing , etc. I say all of this and then mention that I purchased a home during my busiest time of the year as it relates to my work and the fact that my wife and I were moving from Whatcom County (where we had been lifelong residents) and were purchasing a home in Snohomish county.  Not only does Jerry have great knowledge of the Whatcom County market but was equally as impressed with his  knowledge of the market and real estate industry outside of Whatcom County. Additionally, Jerry demonstrated great flexibility with his ability to perform showings, negotiate the offer, etc. all while living afar. I’d highly recommend Jerry and his team to family, friends, coworkers, and anyone else looking to buy or sell their home!”

“We first met Kassi and Jerry in late 2014, looking for a home out of state from Illinois.  As difficult as house-hunting from so far East could be, Kassi and Jerry helped make that easy.

They provided active searches, specific details and were always readily available for questions.  When flying in to see homes, they would spend almost entire days with us, making sure we saw every home we wanted to see – providing extremely honest and helpful feedback on the neighborhoods, communities, and school systems.  As a result, we found a home we ABSOLUTELY love, closed easily (handling most from out of state), and transitioned our family over thousands of miles with minimal stress.  They were a blessing to us and I love seeing them in town, knowing they are just a stop or phone call away for anything.  I couldn’t recommend another agent any higher and will be using them when (hopefully) the in-laws move this way!”

“We have known and worked with Jerry Blankers for over 26 years.  The service and personal attention we have received from Jerry Blankers and his team has always been exceptional. He is a seasoned professional and his knowledge of the local market and negotiating skills and input were key in ensuring that we received the best offer for our home.  We also appreciated the countless hours that he and his team of professionals took to keep us informed of new listings, as well the time spent viewing potential properties with us while we looked for our next home.  Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Jerry.  We could not have asked for a better Realtor to facilitate the process of selling our home and helping us to secure our next one.”

“We cannot say enough about how well our experience working with Jerry went. We knew we wanted to list our condo but every other realtor we had spoke with said that we would break even in the selling process. Reluctant to list we decided we would see what homes were available in Lynden, then if something sparked our interest we would decide on a realtor. The first place we saw had Jerry’s name as the listing agent, so we called him. He was willing to meet with us right away, get our place listed for what was a fair asking price and do everything in his power to sell it quickly for us. Needless to say a couple months later our place sold, we found the perfect home that fit our family in our dream town of Lynden and moved in after. Jerry was always willing to answer our questions, calm our nerves, keep us updated on the housing market and so much more!! We will definitely me using Jerry again someday and would recommend him to anyone!!”

“We have been working with Jerry Blankers and Kassi Simonson for all our real estate needs since we moved to Whatcom County in 2013. Jerry has helped us source and purchase homes and has handled our sales as well. We were pleased with the marketing strategy and sale of our last home summer of 2015…We wholeheartedly given our full endorsement and look forward to our ongoing relationships.”

Jerry and his team helped us both buy and sell our home. Jerry knows his stuff and is super easy to work with. We knew we could trust his advice when it came to negotiations and all the big decisions that come along with buying and selling real estate. You can tell he really cares about his clients and goes the extra mile with his customer service. We won’t be working with anyone else as long as Jerry is still in the practice! We can’t recommend him and his team enough!
