Forrest Hayley - REALTOR ®/Owner- The Hayley Homes Team
After graduating high school, I joined the military at the age of 17 to serve my country and to see the world. My first assignment while serving in the Air Force was McChord AFB, Washington. During this time, I fell in love with the state and with my future wife. Our love for Washington led us to return after my retirement from the Air Force. My grandfather had encouraged and mentored me from an early age to pursue an education in all aspects of Real Estate, and as soon as I was back in the civilian world I began my quest in doing just that.
To become a Real Estate Broker in Washington state, you are only required to attend 90 clock hours of Real Estate Education and pass the state exam. Clearly this is insufficient. Too many agents are uninformed on many subjects which has lead to unsatisfied sellers and buyers and sometimes lawsuits. I have earned the only degree in Real Estate offered in the Northwest from North Seattle College to provide the best Real Estate services possible to all of the people of this great state. I am also an instructor for the Washington State Housing and Finance Commission's Homebuyer classes which offer a great opportunity for buyers to learn the whole process as well as offering several unique loan programs to ensure everyone can afford to buy a home.
The military ingrained in me the importance of professionalism and excellence and I will do what ever I can to help you find your dream home!
