BELLINGHAM, WA, December 14, 2021 – 

Coherence. This is Mark Frye’s commodity, and it runs through everything he does.

Whether he’s describing his business value proposition or talking about his family, writing a contract or analyzing market share, Mark presents coherence.


$1M in commissions in six years

And, out of that coherence—in his work systems and relationships, in his big picture and attention to detail—Mark recently earned a meaningful award. For making (his first) $1 million in commissions, he entered the global RE/MAX Hall of Fame. He earned this distinction in just six years as a broker.

RE/MAX Whatcom County CFO Lisa Carlson said, “We’re thrilled to celebrate Mark’s award, which is so well-deserved.”

In a sellers' market, some homeowners might be tempted to try to sell their house on their own (known as For Sale by Owner, or FSBO) instead of working with a trusted real estate professional. When the inventory of homes for sale is as low as it is today, buyers are eager to snatch up virtually any house that comes to market. This makes it even more tempting to FSBO. Let's unpack why that's a big mistake and may actually cost you more in the long run. 

According to the Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers published by the National Association of Realtors (NAR), 41% of homeowners who tried to sell their house as FSBO did so to avoid paying a commission or fee. In reality, even in a sellers' market, selling on your own likely means you'll net a lower…

When thinking about selling, homeowners often feel they need to get their house ready with some remodeling to make it more appealing to buyers. However, with so many buyers competing for available homes right now, renovations may not be as vital as they would be in a more normal market. Here are two things to keep in mind if you're thinking of selling this season.

1. There aren't enough homes for sale right now.

A normal market has a 6-month supply of houses for sale, but today's housing inventory sits well below that benchmark. According to the National Association of Realtors, there's only a 1.9-month supply of homes today. As a result, buyer competition is high and homes are only on the market for about 21 days, during which time many receive…
