There are not many areas in the United States like Whatcom County! Within a few minutes of travel from the center of the Whatcom County you can find yourself standing at the water’s edge of Puget Sound or standing on the top of a mountain just minutes away in the majestic Cascade Mountain Range. In less than an hour of travel time on Interstate 5 you can find yourself in a world class city like Vancouver, British Columbia or at Pikes Place Market in beautiful Seattle Washington, the coffee capital of the World! For this reason alone it pays to have an experienced local Realtor from Bellingham to guide you through your Real Estate experience and relocation.



 My first experience about this amazing part of the USA was in the summer of 1979 when I was asked to take over the responsibility for Whatcom County with my company at the time. Since then my wife Laurie and I raised our three sons and have always been on a trek to discover all that Whatcom County has to offer. Please allow us to share out discoveries with you.  


I am thrilled to make your Real Estate search easier with this web site. Please feel free take advantage of all the tools and please call me if I can help!

 Last but not least! I am able to exist in the Real Estate world from referrals from my friends. If you know anyone that is thinking about buying or selling I would love to offer my services.




Mr. Jim Pope is the only reason my Bellingham home was successfully sold in our down real estate market. His consistent attention to detail, follow through and communication for each and every arduous step brought it to fruition. Jim is dedicated to what ever he is doing and never gives up in the fight. He does whatever needs to be done to see the process through to success. But far more than the process, Jim's integrity is impeccable, his professionalism is an example to behold, his sincerity is throughout his life, and his caring for people is profound. I would firmly recommend Jim Pope to assist anyone in their real estate need on any level.

“I have known Jim for close to 15 years both personally and professionally and can tell you that he is one of the people that I respect the most in my life. Mr. Pope is a true professional and a great friend! He values the quality of his service to his friends, family, and clients and works tirelessly to be one of the best educated REALTORS he can be. Jim is honest and his integrity is above reproach. As a father, husband and leader Jim is the best. Get to know Jim you will better off for having done so!”                   Darin Stenvers, Sales Manager, RE/MAX Whatcom County, In

 “I have had the pleasure of working with Jim for over 10 years. On a professional level, Jim is an excellent agent, and his clients would be the first to agree. He consistently goes the extra mile, and his years of experience in the real estate industry serves his customers at the highest level. Jim is a very well respected Realtor, having served as President of the Whatcom County Association of Realtors & state director, and in many other capacities. I highly recommend Jim to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling real estate!” Lori Reece, Broker/Owner, RE/MAX Whatcom County, Inc.

I've seen Jim interact with clients, I've seen him bend over backwards for them, and even though I didn't use Jim Pope when we bought our place (had to go with the wife's parents) I have used him to look into my contract and some issues I've had since...and he has given us exceptional service with up-front answers.  His positive attitude, knowledge of the industry and laws, quick responses, and desire to truly find what is best for people is evident. When you work with Jim then you can not only expect the best service around but he truly looks out for others.
I would HIGHLY recommend Jim Pope to anyone who is looking.

Jim.  I’m so thankful you are the agent on this transaction.  There is no way the Soler’s would be in this good of shape without you.  I wish I could take this madness away from you and get this loan closed, but at least you know you are appreciated.  You’re one in a million Jim!
