Meet My Team

Jerry Blankers

These days it’s hard to find someone who has been actively working at the same company for thirty-five years. But I have been with the Muljat Group North since 1980, and I am proud to say that company has been serving the North Whatcom County area for eighty-five years.  I credit much of my client’s happiness to the real estate team at The Muljat Group North. My real estate background has also includes extensive experience in property development, having developed over 275 single and multi family lots and 69 condominium units all within Lynden. I have even owned and sold commercial properties and apartments. With this kind of background, I am ready to assist any seller meet their real estate goals.

I service my client’s real estate needs with hard work, integrity and straightforward talk. I view myself as a counselor, not a sales man. You make the decisions, I am here to answer questions and advise you throughout your transaction without any pushy sales talk or pressure. I communicate effectively and promptly with you throughout the entire process of selling and ensure your transaction is as smooth as possible.

I have lived in North Whatcom County my entire life and when not at the office, enjoy coaching youth basketball and softball teams in Lynden.  I continue the community’s legacy of farming through my family’s hobby farm and raising cattle.  Traveling, cooking, and spending lots of time with his grown kids and grandchildren keeps me busy and fulfilled.

Kassi Waldemar

A team of people can get more done than a single person; especially if the people involved are dedicated to strong client care and client satisfaction.

She helps me coordinate the buying effort, will help be on the lookout for properties that might meet your needs and will communicate with you every step of the way. She is a vital part of our entire Muljat Group North team, working behind the scenes coordinating the transaction and offering advice on staging and otherwise facilitating sales. Kassi became licensed in 2010, earning her ASP – Accredited Staging Professional.
