Working with Jerry these past few years to find the perfect fit for me, has been a very positive experience. Jerry was extremely patient with me, offered positive feedback, expertise and support. I found his previous experience in home inspection and rennovations extremely helpful as well. Jerry is positive, patient, professional and caring. Plus, I found the perfect home for me.

I would highly recommend Jerry. He is a dedicated, diligent and worked hard to understand what we were looking for in a home. Though it took us awhile to find the right fit, Jerry was patient and supported and guided us through the whole process. We are very satisfied with his service!

Through a period of 3 years, Jerry helped us purchase the house we like the most. He is honest and responsive. We highly recommend him to anyone who wants to buy a home in the area.

Been away from real estate for about a year when my wife and I saw a house that we'd previously had our eye on come back onto the market. Who was the first person we contacted about it? That's right, Jerry. We wanted to put the feelers out to see if they would be able to fit our budget, ended up writing an offer and getting the house at a price we are happy with. We've had three purchases with Jerry now, and each one has been different in their own sense, yet each one was relatively simple because Jerry brought all the paperwork to the table and kept everything transparent. You know you've got the right guy when your doorbell rings, and your toddler opens up the door and squeals "UNCLE JERRY!"

Jerry has gone out of his way more than enough for us. He's been accommodating with our hectic schedules and has been flexible for changes at the drop of a dime. It doesn't seem like working with a broker, but like working with a friend. Only wish I had more money to buy more real estate so I could work with Jerry some more.

We chose Jerry based on his previous reviews on ZipRealty. Even though he lives almost 1 1/2 hours from the area where we purchased our home, he always showed up on time for any appointments. He was well-organized and always responsive to e-mails within the day they were sent. Compared to other real estate agents we have worked with, he was more reserved and less assertive. This was refreshing in a way, but it also made it hard to tell what his true professional opinions were; we could have used a little more guidance from experience. I think part of it was that he was not intimately knowledgeable about Island County, WA, and we probably should have chosen an agent from the area. That said, we would definitely use him again, especially if we were to buy a home in Bellingham/Whatcom County!

We contacted Jerry on a friends recommendation, and found him to be an outstanding real-estate agent. We told him what we were looking for and he went to work. When Jerry called and said we should take a look at a house we knew it already met our base criteria. Jerry has extensive knowledge of the Bellingham and Whatcom County home market. We were looking at specific neighborhoods and homes in those areas of Bellingham don't stay on the market long. Jerry gave us almost daily updates during our home search. When we found the house we wanted to make our home Jerry was very helpful in coaching us through the negotiation. We would recommend Jerry without reservation, to anyone who's looking for and agent to assist them in finding a home. Michael and Jessica McAloon

Jerry has done a great job for us selling a second home. I sold the home remotely (2500 miles away) and Jerry took care of all the details including setting the price, home presentation, taking care of the property through closing, and was always looking out for my best interest. He made sure the Buyer's home inspector and appraiser had all the information they needed to do their jobs and managed to get the sale closed 20 days ahead of the original date in the offer. Jerry negotiated a win-win sale between a Buyer who wanted to pay less and seller who didn't want to lower their price! He has a high level of integrity and is very honest. Communication was clear, timely, and concise both by phone and email.

Jerry's contractor experience and local knowledge is a huge asset for a buyer not familiar with the Bellingham market. He prescreened various properties for me and had good advice as far property location, condition, and repair. The home inspector Jerry scheduled was first class. Jerry worked closely with my lender and the seller to secure a quick 5 week time frame from offer to closing. I'll be calling Jerry to list when I'm ready to sell!

Jerry has been a great help with the purchases of our investment properties. He is easy going, trustworthy and dedicated. He has looks out for our interest and has provided us valuable knowledge and advise because of his background as home inspector and real estate investor. I highly recommend Jerry because I never feel pressured to buy when you work with him.

Jerry worked with me for almost 2 years to find my retirement home. Being from out of state, I was unfamiliar with the Bellingham area. Jerry's knowledge of the area plus his deep knowledge of house conditions was invaluable in finding the house that met my needs. Jerry was always a pleasure to work with and always ready to help me. I highly recommend Jerry everyone.

I'm retired and Jerry helped me relocate from Oklahoma to Bellingham WA. This man is thorough, honest, knowledgeable and very kind. I first met him when I came to Bellingham in the spring of 2012 for a week of exploratory house hunting. A friend in Bellingham recommended him because she said he has a good reputation in the community. I didn't buy a home during my spring visit but returned to Oklahoma to sell my home there. Meanwhile, Jerry found a Bellingham condo that a property management company was willing to lease month to month after I sold my Oklahoma home and arrived in Bellingham. It's not easy to relocate from such a long distance, especially when you haven't bought a home yet in your new location. Jerry did so much to help me...finding the temporary rental, suggesting a temporary storage facility for some of my household goods, patiently showing me many houses and offering wise counsel on the pluses and minuses of each one, and much more. I understand now why he has such a good reputation. Truly, you won't find a better agent than Jerry Swann.

Jerry was a great agent to work with and fun. It was nice to see him trying to talk Spanish with my dad and mom. Well, my family has been trying to buy a home for a long time. I mean a really long time ļ. We work with different kind of agents but none of them have the time and patience that Jerry has. He was willing to work even on Sundays. He is really good on responding by text message at almost any time.

I can't thank Jerry enough for his time and patience with us. We are first time homebuyers and Jerry spent a great deal of time walking us through the different processes and answering all of our questions. He did a great job negotiating with the seller and got everything that we asked to have done finished. If you're looking for a great realtor Jerry is your man.

Jerry helped me out enormously. I live quite far away and he was my eyes, ears and advisor. He took photos for me and gave me his honest impression of the places I asked him to look at. He's great at responding to emails in a timely manner and is never trying to sell me on anything. He's also friendly and good natured. I've worked with Jerry twice now and would highly recommend him.

Jerry was a pleasure to deal with and went the extra distance to make the transaction run smoothly. Since I was buying from another state I had alot of questions and Jerry always provided me with valuable information. He's really a fine Realtor in every way.

Jerry did a great job for us. He was available at all hours. He kept very on top of new properties coming on the market. He drove a hard bargain. He always had our best interests at heart. His experience as a home inspector was particularly valuable. We recommend him highly!

We live in Florida. When we first considered moving to Washington to be nearer our family, we started a computer search for homes in the Bellingham area. We signed up with 4 different realtors. But as our plans changed and a move was not in the immediate future, only one realtor stuck with us – Jerry Swan. When we were finally able to target a date 6 to 12 months in the future, we included making an appointment with Jerry in our vacation plan. Although we told him we probably would not purchase anything at the time, we still wanted to get a real (vs. virtual) prospectus of the housing market. Jerry was prompt, courteous, patient and professional during all of our looking. And he shared some of the differences in prospective in moving from Florida to Washington. Although we ended up buying from a ‘for sale by owner,’ we asked Jerry to be our Washington representative. He handled all of the inspections, forms and paperwork from the beginning of the process to the signing of the contract. It was indeed our pleasure to work with Jerry, and we highly recommend this professional to all potential buyers. Bill and Shirley Dunwoody

Jerry went above and beyond in helping us find a home. He made several house visits for us when we were shopping long distance from out of state and was always available for extra questions by phone. When we were finally in Washington with limited time to search for a home, Jerry devoted several days to us exclusively to look at houses. We have been very satisfied with ZIP realty and Jerry Swann.

This review is long overdue. Having read all of the previous reviews, I agree with everything that was stated. I should mention we were from Eastern Washington and not familiar with the Bellingham area. In our dealings with Jerry he was clear, concise, direct, honest and highly professional. Jerry’s stated area of expertise was Whatcom and Skagit counties which include Bellingham and the surrounding cities. His knowledge of the neighborhoods was invaluable in our selecting a home. Jerry always gave great customer service with a low pressure style of business. After almost a year of searching we found the home we wanted to purchase. Jerry went the extra distance to insure our transaction went smoothly, and was always available via phone if needed to answer our questions. I would not hesitate to recommend Jerry to any of my friends who are looking to purchase a home in northwest Washington Respectfully, Bob VanMeer

Jerry once did work for us as a contracter, doing a remodel of a home. He demonstrated integrity and fairness in all matters regarding the remodel. With that in mind, we knew that Jerry was a person who we could trust. We had no doubt that he would work hard to make sure we had all the information that we needed, and that he would be honest about any possible transaction. Jerry gave us an answer to any and every question we had about buying a house and about the property we ended up buying. If Jerry didn't have an answer for us at first, he found it for us and called or emailed the information. I would readily recommend Jerry to anyone interested in doing a real estate transaction. I scored Jerry a five in all categories except local knowledge, where I gave him a 4, given that our Whidbey Island home was out of his area of expertise, that of Whatcom and Skagit counties. In the process of our search, Jerry did consult with some realtor friends in the Whidbey area who helped him better understand the region. Thanks to Jerry, we are in our new home after a very smooth and painless process.

I have traveled throughout the world and good customer service is a rarity. Mr. Swann goes above and beyond what I would have expected, yet received. Because of him, I bought the house I expected, and wanted all from across the country. His expertise and professionalism made this possible. Not only does he have a great knowledge in Real Estate but in the working order of a home as well as the general area and neighborhoods. And he LISTENS! He really heard what I was asking and looking for in a home. I would recommend him to anyone without pause.

Jerry was great! He helped us through our first home purchase. The best thing about Jerry (for us at least) was his low pressure style. He simple gave us facts, walked us through each home we looked at and provided his depth of knowledge at every turn. He was always available by phone or e-mail. Jerry returned calls immediately if he didn't pick up. When I asked questions, if the information wasn't immediately available, he had it in a short time. I would definitely use Jerry again or recommend him to anyone I knew.

Jerry was great to work with. His prior experience as a home inspector was extremely helpful in identifying potential negatives (and positives) in the construction of houses we were considering. Jerry had our best interests in mind throughout the whole process.

Jerry worked with us for quite a long time as we were living out of state and would travel to Bellingham to find housing several times. He always made time for me, and was willing to show me homes and neighborhoods and point out the attractions of the area. Since we were totally unfamiliar with the area, we relied on Jerry's knowledge heavily. We were not disappointed. Jerry answered all my questions, and was always willing to go the extra mile. His knowledge of the area, his familiarity with home construction, and easy demeanor were great assurances to us. Jerry helped us find a great mortgage broker, home inspector, and was beside us all the way to closing. He is a valuable asset to your company, and we would recommend him as an agent to anyone.
