Laurie prided herself in teaching research and creativity to the young minds of our amazing community. Her education experience has led to her success in real estate.

She thoroughly enjoys walking the beach, gardening and just getting outside or you will find her feverishly organizing her next benefit to help others in her community.

Meet Kimberly Secord a Team Member Agent:

Kimberly Secord of the Laurie Satushek TeamThe time is right for both Canadians and local Washington State residents to purchase property in Washington State. The Canadian dollar is strong, the properties are well priced and rentals are in high demand.

Kimberly is experienced and educated, Cross Border Real Estate Specialist. She was born in the United States and currently resides in Bellingham, Washington. Prior to moving to Washington, she spent nine years living in British Columbia, (Canada) and that has enabled her to develop a unique cross cultural perspective between our two great countries. Washington State has always been a choice destination for Canadian Buyers due to the low prices, ease of travel, language and culture.

Kimberly understand that two of the biggest reasons that Canadians do not obtain their goal of owning U.S. property is because of time and fear of the unknown. Buying real estate in the U.S.A. can be complicated and what makes her different is the added value of expertise and knowledge in ALL areas involved with Canadians purchasing U.S. property....not just the purchase itself.

Uninformed and ill-prepared Canadian Buyers will be at a true disadvantage with respect to their cross-border realty purchase. Kimberly is well versed in the requirements for a Canadian to purchase and sell propertyin the United States. She has a vast network of Lenders, Attorneys, and Title and Escrow personnel who are there to provide our clients with education and information on everything that they would need to know about buying property within the U.S.A.

Meet Catherine Witt a Team Member Agent:

Catherine listens carefully and responds effectively to her clients' unique Real Estate goals. Our clients appreciate her expertise in Communication, Marketing and Negotiation. Her background in Teaching (English Literature and French) and Telecommunications and being a Mom round out her wealth of experience.

Meet Kara Van Metre a Team Member Agent:

Kara Van Metre of the Laurie Satushek TeamKara graduated from WWU with a degree in Business with a Marketing Concentration. Post-college she worked assisting the top talent from the SBC management team through the product launch of Pacific Bells cell phone service. Following a return to the Pacific Northwest, Kara was an account executive specializing in Toshiba imaging equipment. In addition to multiple awards for top sales performance, Toshiba selected her for training in high volume sales. Kara became a Realtor in 2003, and has continued to build on her sales success, including renovating numerous homes and investment projects.

Kara knows the Pacific Northwest! She is an expert on all the neighborhoods, homes and their values. She is also a whiz at finances and statistics (we're not kidding!). She watches those interest rates and knows what neighborhoods get the best bang for your buck. Additionally, she has the 'Accredited Buyer's Representative' (ABR) and 'Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) designations.

Meet Heather Stevenson our Executive Administrator:

Heather Stevenson of the Laurie Satushek TeamHeather Stevenson is an innovative outside-the-box thinker that is always striving to find the latest and best in everything she does. She is extremely detail-oriented, organized and is known as a perfectionist (although she prefers to think she just has high standards). Heather prides herself in her technology, communication and writing skills. Her very first real estate blog post was featured on Active Rain with several thousand views and comments. Heather also enjoys creating proprietary applications to help with organization and to keep up-to-date with clients and our real estate transactions. Her applications are often used as examples for others and she has sold some of her systems to places such as the City of Bellingham and the Bellingham Fire Department. But above all her philosophy in business is clients first.

Heather just celebrated her 18th anniversary and enjoys being an active mother to her three teenage sons. She also owns several rental properties and is very familiar with real estate investments and management. If Heather is not working, you will probably find her at one of her sons schools or at the Boy Scout cabin as she volunteers heavily for several local organizations. In 2010, Heather was featured in the Bellingham Heralds 10 Who Cared spotlight and quoted as being tech-savvy. Then in 2012 she was honored to receive the prestigious Volunteer of the Year for the Bellingham School District. Heather also received the PTA Golden Acorn award where scholarship money was donated in her name. She also enjoys photography and videography and has created 100s of videos for friends, family, scouts and schools. You will rarely see her without some kind-of technology in her hands as she is always hungry for more knowledge and researching new ways to accomplish her tasks and goals.
