The hot real estate market has resulted in consistent year-round sales for the area’s highest-rated independent real estate firm, Brandon Nelson Partners. That success has inspired the firm to donate to the Whatcom County community $10,000.00 upon the sale of the 100th house. The firm has already sold (or has under contract to sell) 84 homes in 2018.
“Our business is over eighty-percent repeat and referral clients,” says firm owner Brandon Nelson. “This donation is a way for us to give back to the community that has given so much to us.”
All seven Realtors at the firm are contributing to the $10,000 pot by chipping in every time a sale closes. They’re keeping track of progress on a “100 Houses” poster displayed at their office on Squalicum Way, and with a celebratory ringing of a giant cowbell with each closing.
“We love our work, we love our clients and we love our community!” says Chara Stuart, a Realtor at the firm. “We don’t see this donation as an expense. We see it as an investment in our amazing community!”
Word of the donation has gained traction on social media, where the firm has asked community members to nominate recipient organizations by adding @BrandonNelsonPartnersRealtors to a post. Over a dozen different organizations have been nominated so far.
“We expect to hit our goal in September,” says Jacson Bevens, another Realtor at the firm. “We’ve got a party planned, a giant four-foot-long check and the cowbell is shined up and ready for that one-hundredth closing!”
The firm, started in 2015 by former builder-and-home-inspector-turned-Realtor Brandon Nelson, specializes in residential sales in Bellingham and the surrounding areas. In 2017 the firm sold 144 houses and boasts nearly 300 five-star reviews online.
