The Muljat Group adds Solveig Johnson

Oct. 17, 2017


Solveig Johnson, who already has 140 home sales in less than four years, has joined The Muljat Group in Bellingham as a real-estate broker.


Johnson has earned the ASP Home Staging certification, which she utilizes to prepare properties so they gain maximum return for sellers. Before entering the Whatcom County real-estate market, she was an outside sales consultant for high-end salons for seven years.


“I’ve also personally been involved in three successful house ‘flips,’ so I’ve gained practical knowledge about the costs and added value of making various improvements to a property,” Johnson said.


The Muljat Group, which has the highest volume of sales per agent in Whatcom County, is located at 510 Lakeway Drive. For more information, call Johnson at (360) 303-8048 or visit Johnson

Housing Market is Simmering


According to Northwest Multiple Listing Services, Whatcom County real estate agents had sold 5.1% more homes in 2016 than in the previous year, and the median price of those homes is continuing to increase. Lylene Johnson of The Muljat Group has collected reports of agent transactions and noted that the median prices for homes, “… continue to show how challenging it is for first-time homebuyers looking for property in Bellingham…”

Moratorium has been extended by City Council

Whatcom County property owners are angry as City Council decides to extend the 60-day moratorium that was set in place a couple months ago and would have ended this month. This means that new developments are restrained from counting on exempt wells in areas of Whatcom County. Kie Relyea of Bellingham Herald writes, “County officials have said they needed more time to find solutions – and to come into compliance – after the state Supreme Court ruled the county failed to protect water resources as required by the Growth Management Act.”

While the council voted 5-2 on Tuesday to approve the measure, not everyone supported the decision, including council members Barbara Brenner and Ken Mann. “I am so upset by the position that it has put Whatcom County in and the position it has put people in…” Mann commented.

This leaves property owners in a position that allows them to build homes under certain conditions, until further changes are made.
