Julian & Company

            

Julian Friedman, Owner & Real Estate Agent

Born in Bellingham, my connection to this magical area has inspired a lifelong mission to improve the community through my involvement in business, philanthropy and the arts. I am an avid basketball player, hiker and biker! If you have ever lived in or visited the pacific northwest, you are likely aware of the natural beauty and incredible people that call this place home! I welcome new folks moving to town and love sharing my knowledge of the area, helping them make the right choice of neighborhoods and other important factors in their move. I also assist locals with all of their real estate needs. I regularly have other agents ask me how I became one of Bellinghams top agents. My best answer is that I am constantly learning, asking tons of questions and I'm direct and honest about my assessments. The only way I can help you be successful as my client, is by deeply understanding your situation and aligning reality with expectations so that we are all on the same page and I can serve you to the best of my abilities! I am not afraid of being brutally honest to ensure that you are never in the dark about ANYTHING that could impact you both positively or negatively. Ultimately, I am your advocate!

When selling your home, it is crucial that you work with someone who knows how to prepare your home to be shown in tit's best light! My entire team works together to optimize every aspect of the listing process, we have countless references who will attest to the level of care that we put into getting you top dollar and making the experience as smooth and enjoyable as possible! Next is my comprehensive marketing strategy, utilizing many tricks and tools that you will only find with us. Lastly, negotiation. Not only do I have fantastic working relationships with other agents, I have successfully executed for both buyers & sellers on some of the most competitive sales in Bellinghams history. Understanding the landscape of our market is a fluid skill. It is imperative that you work with someone who knows how to leverage all possible tools to your advantage!

As a buyers agent, I have an unbelievable offer acceptance rate. Knowing what questions to ask the listing agent, when to submit an offer and how to craft terms that get accepted, are all much more difficult than some might think. Being born and raised here also makes me a great resource for finding the right neighborhood to best match your lifestyle, needs and budget.

The Muljat Group is Whatcom County's largest locally owned brokerage and I have consistently been awarded top producer and top team. I am active in my industry and spent 3 years on the Board of Directors for the Whatcom County Association of Realtors. Some of the highlights of my career include Bellingham's largest single residential sale in NWMLS history, a $4,000,000 estate on coveted Lake Whatcom & receiving the Readers Choice award for Best Broker in Bellingham.

When I'm not helping buyers and sellers with their real estate needs, you can find me out on the trails either hiking, biking, or hunting for mushrooms with my family.I'm also a self-described foodie who enjoys eating at our wonderful local restaurants. In fact, eat local / shop local is an important guiding post to my daily life. I believe the way to build a rich, local community is to support small local businesses whenever possible.

If you have any questions surrounding residential or commercial real estate OR want tips about the best food in town or fun activities and events, please reach out!

Jerry Spraggins, Real Estate Agent

Jerry once told me that he has been interested in real estate since he was very young. Jerry’s grandmother was a very well-known broker in the Fort Worth/Dallas areas of Texas, and he admired how amazing she was at her job and how so many people adored her.  Like his grandmother, Jerry also loves meeting people and helping them solve issues or get to the next step in their life. Real estate allows Jerry to help people through what can be a stressful time in their lives by supporting them as they find their new home, which just feels right he said. 

In addition to the joy of helping people, Jerry also enjoys sharing his love of Bellingham with others. From the many lakes and camping areas to unique restaurants and quirky shops, Jerry feels that Bellingham is truly an incredible place. Sometimes in the summer right before the sun goes down, Jerry explained that he likes to put on his favorite music and just drive around and take in the beautiful area. 

For Jerry, one of the perks of being a real estate agent is getting to tour homes and appreciate the different architecture. He has always been drawn to mid-century modern style and classic craftsman homes and appreciates the angles and purposeful design. 

When Jerry is not selling homes,  he is known to be competing in soccer, snowboarding, running, or playing spikeball or pickleball. Also, Jerry feels diversity and challenges bring fulfillment to his life and he can’t get enough. Jerry strives to be a positive role model for kids and youth, sharing his mantra that “Life is meant to be enjoyed, so GO LIVE IT”.  He brings that same great attitude to his interactions with clients, always up for the challenge. Combining Jerry 's energy and drive with his warm personality makes him a top-notched agent!

Summer Huntington - Real Estate Agent

Summer Huntington, Real Estate Agent

Outside of selling homes, Summer is also known as a successful coach who thrives in helping
people make big decisions about their future. She has had a long term interest in real estate in
Bellingham, and wanted to get involved in this industry to learn more about commercial real
estate investing. Summer values community connections and adding value to people's lives.
She is excited about how Julian & Company is innovating in the real estate sector and
supporting the local community.

Summer splits her time between living in a historic building that used to be an old schoolhouse,
located between York and the Fountain District, and an off-the-grid, custom tiny home on a large piece of property near North Lake Samish. These two different lifestyles help her understand how and why people are drawn to different types of homes and the lifestyles they support.

Outside of work you can find Summer traveling, adventuring, and dancing. She has traveled to
London, Spain, Budapest, Australia, Peru, and Costa Rica and loves exploring other cultures.
Summer also enjoys interactive art and supporting local performance artists in Bellingham
through events and collaborations. She is also a big fan of downhill mountain biking at
Galbraith, paddleboarding in the bay, and spending time with her son. Summer is a thoughtful
addition to the team who spreads energy wherever she goes, while at the same time reminding
us all to take time to relax and connect within.
