    I am very proud to say that my wife and I have had a combined 7 generations of Family living on this amazing Island! Watching our two children run and play on the very same beaches that I played on as a kid brings a smile to my face every single time. Over the years I have met so many wonderful new people that have relocated to Whidbey, bringing with them very positive additions to the Island's already rich culture and diversity. It is our responsibility to continue to welcome all of the positive changes to our Island while simultaneously maintaining a healthy, sustainable level of growth. After all, I would love nothing more than to have an eighth and ninth generation of my Family building driftwood forts on our beaches!

    I chose Real Estate because I love this business! It is all about building and maintaining relationships with people and earning their trust every single day. I am fiercely loyal to my clients and will help guide you through any hiccups in the process and leave you with the feeling that whole process was as simple and stress free as possible. Technology has forever changed the Real Estate industry for the better, making communication with my clients easier and providing easily accessible, real-time information available at your finger tips. But ultimately, technology can only lead us so far. In the end it all comes down to creating trust based relationships and the ability to interact and communicate with one another.

    Why choose me as your Real Estate professional? Simply put, I would consider it a great privilege to oversee and guide you through what is for most of us, a transaction based on significant events and changes in our lives. I can assure you that I will treat you and every member of your Family with the same exact level of care and professionalism that I would expect to be given to a member of mine. My promise as your Real Estate Broker is to make this process as seamless and stress free for you and you're Family as possible. I can also guarantee that we will even manage to have a little fun along the way! Let's get started...

    Michael gave Gregory 5 stars out of 5
    Gregory is an outstanding realtor! We were thrilled beyond expectations in terms of service, responsiveness, personal attention, care and fantastic results! Gregory helped us prepare our home for sale and went the extra mile. For example, he brought his truck over and helped us move some furnishings, cut our grass for us when we were out of town, and provided some staging materials that made our home show well. Gregory did everything he could think of to help us be successful. Our home sold over asking price within a week. Then Gregory helped us find the ideal home for us to buy because he listened carefully to what we were looking for and he has detailed knowledge of the market. He follows through with every commitment he makes. He is very personable, and works well with other realtors. We could not be happier with the quality of services we received from Gregory and will be recommending him to anyone we know who is looking for a fantastic realtor.

    Jon gave Gregory 5 stars out of 5
    We went through 3 different agents before finding Gregory as a stroke of chance at an open house. We'd bought a place within 3 months. Gregory is incredibly knowledgeable about the island and all of the different details and gotchas. I couldn't imagine buying a place again without access to that knowledge! He was also a great communicator, and worked with our sometimes erratic schedules. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone looking to buy in Whidbey.

    Gregory was fabulous during the entire selling process. Without his steadiness I would have been more nervous than I was. He helped with every detail, offered sound advice and pushed me when I needed it. His attention to the details was exemplary...he even changed the drone filming day because it wasn't going to be sunny enough! You can't go wrong having Gregory help you with your sale or purchase.

    My wife of 58 years and I have lived in eight states. When we move to Whidbey Island, in the ninth state of Washington, we plan to stay there. We started looking at Townhomes in Freeland over two years ago. Before coming to Freeland we read reviews for all the realtors in the area. Gregory's statement stressed service and a love for the area. We were extremely pleased with Gregory's patience and service as we sought the perfect townhome for us in Freeland. Gregory was understanding as we toured several listed townhomes that were not a good fit for us. He was always patient and helpful with his two elderly clients, that were sometimes not the sharpest with on-line signing technology. Gregory kept searching for the perfect townhome, and gave wise advise to help us successfully purchase it Since we live in Alaska, Gregory represented us for the inspection and appraisal, so we did not have to make two trips to Washington from Alaska. If you are looking to purchase property on Whidbey Island, my wife and I strongly recommend Gregory as an excellent service oriented Realtor that is well versed on Whidbey Island Real Estate!

    Eric gave Gregory 5 stars out of 5
    Gregory was amazing for us throughout the entire process. We hadn't bought a home before and expected it to be very stressful. Gregory made it anything but that! His communication was amazing, never left us wondering what was going on or waiting for any answer. He made every bit if the process as smooth as it could be, quickly responded whenever extra information was needed, and his suggestion during our initial offer are the reason we got our house!! If you are looking for someone that will make your home buying as easy and fun as possible, and will go above and beyond to help, look no further. Gregory was amazing!! You will be with the BEST if you choose him.

    Gregory is A Total PROFESSIONAL ... Efficient, Kind, Caring, Gets the Job Done, Knows his business, Great Sense of Humour (one of a kind realtor) ... My Home Selling experience was STRESS FREE and Enjoyable, which I never thought possible :) I was looking for a Realtor who would treat me as an Equal, would keep me Up To Date and Explain everything Clearly and Quickly, who would go Above Board And Beyond to Help me, who would Put In The Hours of Work and not just take the fee. I found Gregory did All of the above. But I wasn't surprised I'd done my homework reading lots of reviews, and he OUTSHONE EVERYONE, and that was My Experience too. I gave Gregory an Interview before accepting him as my realtor, as I'm sceptical of realtors in general, but Gregory in his Cheerful way had not minded at all (Sorry Gregory) ... I would have No hesitation Recommending Gregory to my Family and Friends (which I've done). Thanks Gregory for making me feel I was the only client. I'm sure you were busy behind the scenes selling other homes too, but I never felt you were too busy to answer my questions, and I appreciated your Fast Responses. GREAT EXPERIENCE!

    I would never use anyone besides Gregory Young again! It has now been my experience, this is NOT the time to use someone that's a friend or someone I've used in the past because it's convenient. Having a Real Estate transaction go smoothly is what I thought I wanted...until doing business with Gregory Young. His knowledge and expertise made me realize (after a lifetime of sales and purchases) that this is an experience that needs to be navigated with the highest work ethic and incredible knowledge, for it to be truly fulfilling! Gregory has made me realize so much more about making an intelligent decision. If you don't know what it truly means to have an incredible agent, that's not just going through the motions, I implore you to seek out Gregory Young for Real Estate on Whidbey Island! My satisfaction was beyond measure and I would recommend him a thousand times over. He's doing what he was born to do. I truly had no idea how fantastic a talented Real Estate Agent can make all the difference. A thousand stars, Gregory! Thank you for everything! Donald D.

    Gregory was great to work with during our home search and purchase. Buying a home was quite the journey, frustrating and exciting at times, we felt supported by Gregory during the entire process. Gregory is very personable with a down to earth attitude, he shared his knowledge and gave helpful insight on several occasions. Gregory went out of his way to accommodate with our schedules. Thanks to Gregory's hard work and dedication, we did finally find our prefect home fit.

    January 14, 2020 Dear Prospective Homeowner, It is our pleasure to recommend Gregory Young and Caldwell Realty on Whidbey Island, Washington. Gregory handled the sale of our home in over-the-top marketing actions. Gregory used his technological expertise in computer real estate databases. We felt very confident in his vast, in-depth knowledge of real estate. Anyone looking for a friendly, proficient and attentive agent need look no further than Gregory Young. Our home sold quickly and satisfaction was felt by us as the sellers, and by the buyer as well. Regards, Darrell and Paula Coburn

    Gregory Young goes above and beyond the call of duty! Being a former Real Estate Agent and Loan Officer myself, I am very picky and have extremely high expectations when it comes to my agent. I would NEVER again use anyone but Gregory Young as my agent! His knowledge of Whidbey Island is unmatched and his work ethic is unsurpassed!!! The selling of my last home took nothing short of undying determination and insurmountable knowledge and persistence to the end. He didn't let me down for a second! Giving him this review is the very least I could do to show my gratitude for what he helped me accomplish during a very stressful time! Thank you, Gregory! I will recommend you at every given opportunity! And I would give you a million stars if I could!

    We sold our home in Lake Stevens and had our eyes set on relocating to Whidbey Island. I left a message with Coldwell Banker and within an hour Gregory contacted us. I knew instantly it was serendipity. Gregory was exceptionally knowledgeable of the island and was enthusiastic about island living. His energetic and positive attitude fueled our excitement to build a home on Whidbey. Prior to showing us properties, Gregory narrowed down acreage that suited our needs. We wanted 2+ acres with little restrictions, water and electric. There were other requirements and after meeting him, he knew exactly what we were and weren't looking for. Gregory answered all additional questions or concerns we had about each property. He informed us of any challenges a property would have in addition to its possibilities. Since this was our first time buying property, we had a lot to learn. Gregory was able to walk us through this process with ease and confidence. When we found a place we could build our home, Gregory went over and beyond to give us all the information we needed to make our decision. Because of his attention to detail, no rock was left unturned. I'm not over exaggerating when I say that my husband and I would mention daily how lucky we were to have him as our realtor. After we closed, the sellers hadn't sent the keys to unlock a couple of locks. Gregory met us with bolt cutters and a smile from ear to ear. He isn't just a realtor, he's a friend. Gregory put his heart and soul into every aspect of buying our land where we'll not only build a home but memories. The foundation of this process began with an incredibly positive experience with Gregory. Without a doubt we can say that anyone searching for a realtor will find more than they're looking for with Gregory Young. Jana and Stephen Morton

    I highly recommend Mr. Gregory Young as a capable and knowledgeable real estate agent. I met Mr. Young as my husband and I were evaluating a piece of vacant land on Whidbey Island and he was recommended by the list agent. From the start until we closed the transaction, Mr Young guided us through skillful negotiation skills, detailed knowledge of local landscape, and careful follow through. Mr. Young was very accurate in suggesting the right offer price and the length of feasibility study. We were able to finalize the purchase price much lower than we originally thought and secure a favorable timeframe for feasibility study. Mr. Young was very accessible via email, text and phone, and responded to our questions quickly. His priority was not to close the deal as soon as possible, but to negotiate the most favorable terms for us. I truly appreciated that. After the our offer was accepted, Mr.Young sent us a customized calendar detailing each deadline of all contingencies. He stayed on top of those dates throughout the process and reminded us of each deadline as they came. He spent a long time walking through the neighborhood patiently with us, giving detailed and fair accessment of pros and cons of the location. Again he wanted us to find a good fit, not just closing the deal. The best part of working with Mr. Young was his local knowledge and connections with local business professionals. Mr. Young recommended us a great feasibility study firm who completed the evaluation on time. When we ran into questions and roadblocks during the process, Mr. Young was effective to pulling in the right persons to resolve the issue. We read online about some planning by the city of Freeland and we were concerned. It was Mr. Young who quickly asked around with local folks and pointed us to the right directions to get the most up to date information. I had a lot of questions and requests during the closing process and Mr. Young answered every one of those efficiently. No question was too simple and no request was too bothersome. Mr. Young went above and beyond his duty. For example, once he received the key to the beach access, he checked that the key does work and sent us a picture. It was a pleasure to work with someone like Mr. Young who truly understood his clients' perspective and put our satisfaction as his first priority. We are pleased to have purchased the property with Mr. Young and would definitely work with him again when we have real estate needs on the island. We have worked with many real estate agents through the years and Mr. Young is hands down the top one.

    When I was looking for a vacation / investment home in Island County, Gregory went out of his way to help me find the right place. Gregory guided me through the process by providing his expert knowledge of the local market. Gregory pointed out potential concerns with a few of the properties I was looking at. Gregory was much more interested in me finding the right property for my family than he was in making a sale. If you are looking to buy or sell a home, I strongly recommend Gregory Young. He is professional, trustworthy, and extremely knowledgeable of the real estate market in Island County.

    Gregory has been such a joy to work with. I provided him with the property I am interested in finding, what he has shown me exceeded my expectations! He has been mindful of amount we are wanting to spend, it is so refreshing to be working with someone who is knowledgeable and concerned with meeting the needs of client. I would highly recommend Gregory to any friend or family member.

    My Experience

    • Over the past 18 years on the Island, I have owned and actively managed a successful Estate Management and Residential and Commercial cleaning company, affording me the opportunity to establish long term trust based relationships with hundreds of clients. During this time I have continuously demonstrated the ability to create new client relationships, while simultaneously treating each existing client as my absolute top priority. In addition to these relationships, I have developed an extensive network of local service providers, each earning my approval through years of exceptional service provided to my clients. If you are new to the Island or listing your home for sale and are ever in need of services such as landscaping, carpet, window, gutter or roof cleaning, or perhaps even an extensive remodel, I can put you in touch with several providers to choose from.
