JBLM PCS, Relocation & Housing
Will you be PCS’ing to JBLM in the near future? I offer my services, and those of my team, to members of the armed forces in the JBLM area, and have done so since my retirement from Fort Lewis.
Phil Sharp Homes is committed to service members PCS'ing to Ft. Lewis and McChord AFB. My staff and I have experienced many, many PCS moves, and we use those experiences as the basis for how we operate. Our plan is to educate you on the Ft Lewis area and home buying process, expose you to all of the homes in the area that meet your needs, and get you into a home as quickly and as inexpensively as possible.
"My name is Phil Sharp, and I am a Real Estate Broker in the Fort Lewis and McChord AFB (JBLM) area in western Washington. My service area includes the perimeter of the base (Joint Base Lewis-McChord), in Pierce and Thurston County WA. In addition to bringing the Army Values with me to the private sector, I also operate with a clear plan for each of my clients. The plan is based upon my experiences during many PCS moves, and recognition of the fact that time is of the essence."
"Whether you are TDY for house hunting, or trying to get settled prior to a deployment or school, you expect the undivided attention of your agent while looking for and closing on your home, and I assure you that you will get that attention from me. When the time comes to get serious about talking with an agent, Please give me a call. In the meantime, be sure to make use of the resources I offer both on the web and thru my staff":

Current State of the JBLM
(Ft. Lewis and McChord AFB) Housing Market
PCS’ing to JBLM and considering purchasing a home? Population and economic growth in the Northwest, and particularly the Puget Sound region, has been in the news recently. The JBLM area is experiencing extra-ordinary growth, similar to what the DC, LA, Dallas areas (and others) did in the 1990’s. You will love it here….Endless recreation, great economy, lots of jobs for dependents, mild weather.
The population of Pierce and Thurston counties has been growing by over 100,000 per year for the past 3-4 years. Current population for the two counties combine is 1.2 million in 2020!
JBLM has been identified as becoming the largest installation in the US, projected to surpass Ft. Hood for assigned numbers in 2020. The effect on the JBLM real estate market has been significant, with home values going up, and projected to do so for the foreseeable future.
The Lacey Industrial Park, Shipping and Distribution Center, is adding thousands of jobs in the JBLM area, a boon for dependents. Lacey, and the State of Washington, have figured out how to entice businesses to move up here from CA. Target, Kohl’s, Home Depot, and a number of others, are bringing lots of jobs, and demand for housing to the area. Hawkes Prairie in Lacey is home to the industrial park, and just happens to also be the most convenient/closest off post housing in the JBLM area.
Washington State Government…The State Capital is located in Olympia, and state agencies are spilling over into Lacey and Tumwater. If you are interested in growth, btw….the leading edge of growth moving south from Tacoma/Seattle is between Lacey and Tumwater. Home Ownership in these communities will pay dividends for years to come.
What We Have To Offer When Working
with Phil Sharp Homes
As first time home buyers, everything was new to us! Phil helped us with every single question that we had and gave us his honest opinion. He knew the best neighborhoods and did his best to find homes that met all of our needs! He kept us in the loop the entire escrow period, as there is a lot that needs to be done during that time! When we decide to move again, we will without a doubt be going to Phil!!
