Our San Juan Island Team
Give Yourself the Advantage of Our Knowledge
Coldwell Banker San Juan Islands Real Estate Brokers and management combined have the most knowledge about the local real estate market and related matters, giving both our buyers and sellers distinct advantages. We have the largest base of buyers and sellers, we’re chosen as the listing agent more than any other brokerage and we generate the most buyers for those listings. We look after our customers before we look after ourselves. We know what things to be aware of and advise our customers accordingly. We have the most experience in every aspect of real estate in the San Juan Islands providing substantial benefit, advantages and protections for our customers.
As we have always said, the island’s lifestyle is the primary reason in the purchasing decision process. It is what originally brings you to the islands and what keeps you wanting to be here. Our office has created an entertaining video that helps demonstrate our feelings about the island lifestyle and selling real estate. We hope you will take a moment to enjoy our YouTube Office Video.
Sam BuckManaging Broker Coldwell Banker San Juan Islands Inc
I am a 2nd generation Realtor on San Juan Island and I am a 3rd generation islander with my two grandchildren being 5th generation islanders.
I left in 1976 to experience life off the island and came back in 1987. For 30 years, my father had the largest and most successful real estate company in the San Juan Islands. My younger brother had taken over the business so, with “real estate in my blood”, in August of 1988, I became a Realtor as it seemed like a natural move. I worked very hard and within a few years I quickly became one of the most successful Realtors in my office and have been a top broker since 1993.
My father was born here and he and my mother still live here on the island. My wife and I raised both of our sons here. I loved growing up here and feel very grateful for the gift of being able to raise my family here and now seeing our grandchildren grow up here.
My background is quite diverse including: small farming, heavy equipment operator, commercial fisherman, restaurant ownership, and resort restoration / operation. I was a full time holistic health practitioner with a non-profit organization for over 10 years and still enjoy keeping up with the current trends in that field.
Please allow me the privilege of providing you with the benefit of the knowledge gained over my 25 years as a Realtor on San Juan Island. I am a top Realtor only because people like their experience and recommend me to their friends and family.
