About James Hagarty

Hi, I’m James.

I’m a real estate broker and Realtor® serving buyers and sellers throughout Whatcom and Skagit Counties.

I was born in Ireland, and raised in Delaware, where I lived when I happened to fall in love with a beautiful girl from British Columbia, Canada (my wife Amanda).


After our first few years of marriage she convinced me to leave behind the snow and slush of the East Coast for beautiful Bellingham, Washington.  We were immediately captivated by this community, and I realized we had found a place to call our home.

In my free time I enjoy going for bike rides around Zuanich Point Park, supporting the local writers groups, and reading non-fiction and science fiction.

If I’m not attending a reading at Village Books or Cozy Corner, you can find me playing board games at Rudy’s Pizza on Sunday nights.  Sometimes we even stay in and snuggle with our cats, Beans and Cassie.

My professional background is in direct sales and business ownership.  Amanda and I ran the calendar kiosk in Bellis Fair mall for a few years.  We did so well we won Calendar Store of the Year, beating 800+ other stores!

We also own a “virtual” real estate business, buying, selling, and renting land in the online world called Second Life.  I even wrote a book about it, which is currently tearing up the charts on Amazon.

I enjoy the time freedom and financial freedom that comes from running my own businesses. Being in real estate full time allows me to enjoy life to fullest, while helping my clients achieve their dreams.

Thank you for visiting my website, I look forward to serving your needs!

James Hagarty, Realtor®
