Buying a house on Whidbey Island

Relocating a family within the largest island in Washington and the 4th largest in the contiguous United States is not a bad idea. Nestled right on the bay between the Olympic peninsula and the I-5 Corridor, Whidbey Island has secured its spot as an up and coming hotspot for homeownership. Whether you're interested in buying for investment or your first home, island life has its perks!

Neighborhood Vibes

Whidbey Island has a strong sense of community. With only a few ways to access the island the community is strong and very self reliant. The island has one major highway that travels from one end of the island to the other and many communities branched off in between. Catch a world class sunset at Lagoon Point, watch the jets fly by in Oak Harbor, or watch the fishing boats motor about in the bay near Clinton. Sip coffee and watch the sea lions swim in the marina everyday! Whidbey is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life while keeping the amenities that we all love.
