Testimonials


We’ve used Kirk multiple times both for home sales and purchases. He has always taken the time to get to know our needs which helped us to be directed to homes closely aligned with what we wanted allowing us to avoid wasted time. We never felt rushed or that he was put out regardless of our requests. His knowledge of the local area and his personal demeanor made him enjoyable to work with. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kirk and will definitely use him again in the future.

Kirk is the utmost professional. He is efficient and always prepared. He answered all my questions & concerns promptly and professionally. He also made me feel he was more concerned with doing the right thing than to just make a sell. I loved all his advice and respect for my time. In fact, in one of the deals we were involved in was a very complicated deal which he could have steered me towards going through but chose to have me leave it alone even after he had spent massive amounts of time and energy towards it’s fruition.

After 10 years as a broker in the local area, it was time to sell. I don’t believe Realtors ought to sell their own properties. The reasons should be obvious. I asked other local real estate professionals for recommendations even though I was sure I knew the good ones. We wanted an agent who was a top producer with outstanding business credentials and an unquestioned reputation. Kirk made the top of all the lists. I cannot say enough good about the quality and effectiveness of his marketing. He knows the market, the inventory and the process. He listens carefully, speaks wisely and guides the process to the best conclusion. A great business partner. Kirk Ghio is, very simply, your best choice.

Kirk was terrific to work with: knowledgeable, direct, patient, thorough, intuitive. I would definitely work with him again and recommend him to others!
- Michelle A.

We made the mistake of listing with another agent in town before we went to Kirk. We had twice as many showings with Kirk and excellent follow-up and feedback about each showing. He had our listing up in a few hours, has a beautiful website and knows Bellingham neighborhoods inside and out. We highly recommend using him!

Kirk is the best realtor I’ve ever worked with (out of 5 house purchases and sales). His understanding of our needs and the market was far superior to other realtors we’ve worked with. He made a very difficult process as easy as it could possibly be.

We recently bought a home in a new city for us working with Kirk Ghio as our realtor. In large part due to Kirk’s approach and demeanor, the process was very enjoyable and resulted in the right transaction. What we appreciated most about Kirk, was his ability to discern our needs and show us the homes that fit us best. We found the perfect home and within our very short timetable. We highly recommend Kirk. He has expert knowledge of the Bellingham market. He is the consummate professional and a delightful person.

Kirk was a pleasure to work with! He turned a daunting life experience into a seemingly effortless one. Throughout the process he was relaxed, knowledgeable, honest, and explained things to me articulately and patiently. At no point did I feel rushed or pressured and his professionalism was comforting.

We have enjoyed working with Kirk for a number of years now. Though we have worked with other agents in our area, we found none to be as responsive, enthusiastic or diligent as Kirk. He sold a home for us and also worked for us on our most recent purchase as our Buyer’s Agent. Buyer or Seller, you could not go wrong by having Kirk on your ‘team’…!!
- Ron E.

Kirk was very helpful during the process of finding and buying our home. He was very knowledgeable about the areas we were looking, familiar with the area contractors’ work, easy-going, honest and trustworthy. We will definitely work with Kirk again.
- Kim W.

Kirk was just wonderful to work with! He listened to what we were looking for and to what we could afford. He showed us homes that were in our budget and would fit our needs. His patience was hugely appreciated as was his friendly and knowledgeable customer service. We will definitely return to Kirk when we outgrow our current home!

Mr. Ghio has been my agent for the purchase of two homes and the sale of one of them over the course of the past 8 years. He has consistently delivered a smooth transition every time. I have referred many friends to him who have also been happy with his work.
- Coleen C.

Kirk has an extensive knowledge of a large area and can point out the pros and cons of each one. He is exceedingly flexible and patient even when you want to view a property more than once. He is focused (very few distractions from his cell phone) and generous with his time. We will be selling a house in the near future and plan to ask Kirk to assist us.
- Linda L.

In a down market, with a glut of similar properties for sale in the area, Mr. Kirk Ghio managed to find a buyer for our condo with a reasonable offer. Although the average sale was taking more than a year at the time, Mr. Ghio persevered and, in the end, all parties were more than satisfied.
- Jeff S.

Kirk was upfront and honest with us. He understood what it was going to take to sell our house and he found us a buyer within a week. This is the second home that Kirk has sold for me and I wouldn’t use any other agent in Whatcom County.
