Mission: Satisfied Customer

Pusztai"We reached out to Phil before our cross-country PCS move this spring. We were encouraged by the fact that he is a military veteran and served many years at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, where we were being stationed. From the beginning, Phil and his team were very responsive. We discussed what we were looking for, where to live and where not to live and our budget concerns. Phil was incredibly honest in his responses through the entire process, with none of the “salesmanship” I expected from a realtor. We would send him properties we saw on Zillow and his team would investigate them and also come back to us with a report on that property as well as other options in the areas.....READ MORE From the Pusztai Family and More

Learn More About the Local Communities Surrounding JBLM?

When My family and I PCS’d to Ft. Lewis, I received many suggestions on where to live.  It seemed at that time that Lacey and Olympia were the most popular areas.   Currenty, I believe that the most desirable areas are Lacey/Olympia, followed closely by the up and coming town of Yelm.  Areas to the north, such as Spanaway and Graham, are also popular because of lower prices and ease of commute to Tacoma and Seattle.

Lacey-Olympia:   Olympia is the State Capital, and is adjoined by Lacey to the north/east.  The community is known for housing several colleges, a large and growing industrial complex in Hawks Priarie, and for less congestion and a more rural feel.  To learn more about Lacey and Olympia, please visit the Community Information Pages… Olympia Information. Lacey Information.

Yelm (And Roy):  Yelm is a small agricultural town, separated from I-5 by JBLM.  Yelm is a rapidly growing town, which has become very popular with the military.  Because of it’s small town charm, great school’s, proximity to post, and easy commute if you need to visit cities to the north or the south…People have discovered that Yelm has a lot to offer.  To learn more about Yelm, visit the Yelm Washington Community Page.

Communities We Serve Around JBLM

My service area generally includes the perimeter of JBLM, out to a distance of 30-45 minutes.  I have found, and know from personal experience, that more than 45 minutes from the unit/barracks can be painful. 

I do work beyond the “perimeter” more frequently when helping folks who will be retiring in the near future, and want to be in the country…or closer to Seattle.  I also work with people already retired, who are looking to move up, down-size, or who just want a change of scenery.

While I am licenced and able to sell any home in Washington, the following are the towns within 45 minutes of JBLM that I am used to working in.  I am kind of opinionated, and while I have listed all of the communities close to post, however, there are some that I may try to get you to avoid…

  • Univercity Place
  • Tacoma
  • Eatonville
  • Others
