We were so grateful for Nicole J at Windermere Anacortes. She is a fantastic agent! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
We knew no one nor were we familiar with the Anacortes area so this review has no bias. We were struggling real-estate hunting solo long distance until we found Nicole and then our amazing home journey began.
While working with her, we were able to learn more about the area and received lots of tips and recommendations. She is very diligent, compassionate, and knowledgeable. She provided consistent support from beginning to end of the home buying process. She really kept us informed and went the extra mile at every stage. If she didn’t know something she would find out for us. I believe she always had my family’s best interest at heart. Whether you’re selling or buying, I would recommend her without hesitation. Thank you Nicole for your patience and in helping us find what we were looking for, a “home!”

Nate and his team at Windermere in Anacortes are hands down, the best!!! My HOA was in a tight spot and needed professional, honest management with a quickness and Windermere certainly was all of those things. Nate is currently acquiring his Professional Association Manager Certification (PCAM) & my HOA felt the immediate effects of this. Reserve studies were done, books were brought back to order and updated, a homeowner portal for the HOA was created. Getting lights and other simple maintenance completed became seamless with the portal. When I was challenged technology Nate, Dreybon and Kevin were there to help. They hosted all of our meetings and helped with all required documents as well.

Overall a solid, great value property management company. If your HOA is tired of the run-around from other local managers, I implore you to contact Windermere; they take care of everything they can and you will go back to sleeping well. My sleep as President of the HOA has been great since the transition to Windemere.


Julie Birkle is super. She is friendly and outgoing, but above all, energetic and knowledgeable about the area that she serves. She knows what's on the market before it comes on the market. She grasps what YOU want, and gears her search toward your preferences. She is assertive in helping you buy or sell a home or property. Her experience gives her a great depth in knowing the value of any property or home in this area, and she is just a nice person who makes the whole process fun and exciting. We have recommended her to others, as she was recommended to us. Everyone we know who has worked with Julie has been extremely satisfied and enjoyed working with her.

Julie Birkle is AMAZING. We were relocating to Anacortes from New Orleans and had no idea where to start our home search. Julie was patient, kind and so knowledgeable. She found us the perfect home, helped with inspections when we couldn't be here and even made sure closing ran smoothly since we were so far away. I was so confident in her ability to get this transaction done, I had little to no stress. She's a super star agent whom I've recommended to countless friends.

-Shendelle Tregre

Julie Birkle has helped us with 3 purchases! She is knowledgeable, efficient, honest, cheerful and savvy in getting everything handled including the property/building investigations. Each escrow went through smoothly too!
She is a valuable asset to any kind of property sale!

-Joyce Suter

We were first time buyers my husband and I were very nervous with the whole process and our Agent Julie Birkle who has turned friend helped us thru the whole process. She found us the perfect house to accommodate all our needs. She is not only a great Agent but she knows the area and surrounding areas. She is there for all your house hunting needs. She has helped many of my friends as well find their perfect home. She isn’t in it to just sell you a house, she is there to find you the dream house you’ve been looking for and she doesn’t drop you once you find it she is there for all questions you might have anytime. When you want the best look no further than Julie Birkle a s the Windermere Anacortes office. Even if you’re not looking in Anacortes. Julie for the win.
