I’m Joe Hoppis. I grew up on Bainbridge Island and started my real estate career in the Seattle market, more than 20 years ago. Many moons later, I started my own brokerage with the goal of providing the highest level of customer service in a boutique style to ensure each client has the best experience possible. We are customer-driven, not deal-driven, and we pride ourselves on helping our clients find exactly what they are looking for—no compromising here! I have a great passion for providing the highest quality customer service. My experience extends back to when I worked at Nordstrom, way before my time in real estate. I appreciate you putting your trust in me and my team, and we look forward to partnering with you soon!
My name is Luke Remmers, for over 14 years I have worked with clients from all over Asia, basing myself and family in Phuket, Thailand. I have mainly been involved in real estate transactions as a broker and a business consultant for a wide array of holiday businesses, helping individuals relocate or invest in the Asian community. I have been involved with many new condo and villa developments and commercial planning projects. I have had two successful beach club restaurants, "Surfs UP Phuket" and "Skyla's Beach House Phuket". I have owned an ocean sports retail a store, a recreation center on the beach in Thailand and Co-Founder of the "Life Education International School in Phuket' LEI. I love giving back to my community by supporting local charitable organizations, mentoring programs and people in need, like "Stand Up Paddle Projects" for kids and local youth. My previous background before Asia was in Emergency and Natural Medicine, I worked as a Fireman Paramedic for over 15 years in a busy metropolitan system, annually worked as an island camp boat medic and jet ski rescue for surf camps and big waves arenas all over the world, this gave me time and space to travel and surf the world, looking for business opportunities to be the entrepreneur at heart that I am.
Growing up in the Bellingham area my whole life has given me an appreciation for this unique city. My career in the realm of real estate started with Chicago Title and lead to coordinating the office of Hoppis Real Estate. With a base understanding of title and escrow as well as knowledge of the Bellingham area, I enjoy my position and can’t wait to grow with this business.
