As a John L. Scott broker, my mission is transactional excellence and client satisfaction. That means I work tirelessly to make your home buying or selling process as efficient, stress-free and lucrative for you as possible.
I am passionate about life and what each new days holds! Married for 38 years and blessed with the journey of raising three fabulous children. I now get to enjoy five beautiful grandchildren! When I'm not finding you the best deal on a home or seeking out the best price I can sell yours for, I hit the road with my husband on our Harleys. Since the transition from an office manager at an elementary school, I have helped over 180 families begin the adventure of owning their own home.
I take pride in offering high-caliber full-service residential real estate expertise. My clients are my top priority, and I focus on delivering the best possible results for them.
The real estate market is hyperlocal, seasonal and temperamental—in other words, it can change on a dime. Technology has made information more accessible to everyone, but it can be difficult to keep up with recent events that affect home values. The benefits of working with a licensed real estate professional go far beyond what a mobile app, online video, or website can do.
I provide my clients with information on market seasonality and information relevant to what is happening in their specific neighborhood. This customized analysis includes recent comparable sales that factor into an offer and acceptance strategy.
Successful negotiations help move a conversation forward and transform the process into an agreement that’s a win for all parties. Negotiation is not only a skill, but a mindset. I keep my clients’ best interests top of mind as I negotiate on their behalf.
I am dedicated to transactional excellence for every listing and sale. What this means for you is that I oversee every detail of the real estate transaction. The transaction is far from over once an offer has been accepted. I monitor inspections, appraisals, title, escrow and loan processes. Communication and collaboration with all the partners and parties involved with the transaction ensures a smooth and timely closing. I am committed to my clients before, during and after a sale.

We met Kerry McGhie 4 years ago when we were buying our current house. Throught that process we were astonished by her many incredible attributes she displayed while helping us procure our new home. Kerry has an uncompromising moral foundation based on her faith and her constant positive outlook on life. She has extensive knowledge of the intricacies of the real-estate transaction, which she uses to help her customers feel safe, protected, and loved. Kerry brings with her a heart so big and so comforting that is hard to remember it is still a business transaction. We recently partnered with Kerry to sell our rental property; it could not have been more smooth and painless. When the challenges arose, she obtained the information needed and provided us with the options so we could make educated decisions. Her instinct in the market is unparalleled and a constant professional; allowing us to maximize our return and sell our home at its full potential. I am often asked to refer and agent to a friend, I explain to them that I know lots of agents but what I can do is refer to them someone more than that. As a professional who believes networking is a key to success, just referring Kerry doesn't truly do her justice. I believe you need to have her in your circle as not just a professional but also a friend. ~Gabe

Kerry went above and beyond to facilitate a transaction that was full of turns and twists. Every part of the journey she was there to reaffirm the positive. Keep us tracking to the ultimate goal of selling our home and tirelessly working to ensure we came out with the most change in our pockets. From her referrals to people who could help repair the house for an economical price to ideas on structure and price each way she added value. She did this all with incredible integrity which is priceless. Thanks so much Kerry for doing an amazing job. ~Hanson Family

Kerry did an absolutely amazing job for us! Within five hours of our house going on the market we had an offer of over $10,000 more than our asking price. She was willing to answer all of our millions of questions and never once made us feel like we were being a nuisance. The sale of our house was seamless. We highly recommend Kerry if you are in need of selling your home. ~Dani

I don't think there are enough beautiful words to describe Kerry. I feel very fortunate that out of all agents in the world, we found her. She is extremely knowledgeable, and very patient. I had a ton of questions and she didn't left a single one unanswered. We felt very well guided, as she was always ready for showing a house, always prepared with a ton of information printed prior to showing. Being a first time home buyer on this crazy market is very hard. The ratio is 10:1 in seller's favor and lot of offers are cash. When we put the offer to the house she was fighting like lioness and only thanks to her we got the house. Not just that she is the best agent you could find, she is a wonderful person that you'll enjoy being around to. I know me and my family did. I'm recommending Kerry with all my hart, I'm giving her 100 stars and we will definitely use her services her for every future house selling or buying. ~Vesna

I've known Kerry McGhie for three years. I admire her honesty, integrity and willingness to go above and beyond not only in her business practices but with building relationships. I highly recommend Kerry if you are looking to purchase or sell your home. Thank you Kerry for serving with a servant's heart. Less ~Pattie

Kerry is that one-in-a-million real estate broker you're always hoping to find. When we relocated to Mount Vernon from Eastern Washington Kerry not only found us the most beautiful home in our price range, she also expertly facilitated in the sale of our Yakima property even though it was not her listing. She is an efficient, tireless problem solver with incredible listening skills - while other agents explain why something isn't their job to do, she's busy getting it done. If you're lucky enough to hire Kerry, you've found the best! ~Jeanmary

Do you want the best service, great knowledge of the market, and a real estate broker that is working for you in YOUR best interest? That's Kerry McGhie. She is one of the best and most dedicated realtors I have had the pleasure of working with. I have experience with many realtors in this market, and can say without a doubt you won't find a better person or professional than Kerry! ~Rich Johnson Wells Fargo Home Mortgage

We loved working with Kerry. She is so helpful and resourceful. My wife and I took a year looking for just the right home for us and Kerry was by our side the whole time. She truly made it her business to know us and our needs, never pushing us to settle or waste time with home we wouldn't like. Kerry's personal touches make the whole experience even better, from her monthly news letter to the holiday cards. Kerry is such a delight. And when you finally find the home you are looking for, Kerry won't leave you in the past. She will continue to be there for you ~Branden
02/14/2017 - Bought a home in 2014 in Camano Island, WA. •
Kerry helped me purchase my first home!! The process was long because it was a bank owned home that had been sitting for years and the sale price was low but through it all I felt like I was her most important client. She made sure I would get that house, she saw what I saw in it and she worked her magic !! Now it's two years later and I still have a relationship with Kerry. And I have a house with plenty of equity that when the time is right I'll be calling on her to help me once again ~Krissy

We highly recommend Kerry to everyone and anyone. We were new to the State, and hadn't purchased a home for ten years - so the entire process was overwhelming and basically "new" to us. Kerry was familiar with every county we thought to explore, met and spoke with us many times to make sure she knew EXACTLY what our family wanted and needed, and not only helped pinpoint homes for us but gave us the tools to do so as well. She knows the market, knows the neighborhoods, property values, trends - AND she knows the mortgage process, keeping in touch with our Lender and us the entire time. Kerry is also an amazing resource for anything and everything you would need - information as well as people (appraisers, contractors, etc). She came through for us time and again, and made the entire homebuying process as easy as possible. Kerry is a spectacular, invaluable Real Estate Professional and an amazing Lady. You really couldn't choose a better person to help you with your home. ~The Wren's

Kerry has helped my family find homes to meet our needs with patience, diligence and with prayer! She searched with and for the perfect home with my husband and myself for several months. When we walked into the "one", we just knew it. We knew by that evening that our bid had been accepted. (I also knew that my realtor was praying for the transaction!) Kerry recently helped our family find a home for my parents within 1/2 mile from our new residence. She knew it was important to us to be close and we are all thrilled with the outcome on this unique property. I would recommend Kerry as a realtor with your best interests in mind. She takes the time to really listen to what your needs and desires are. ~Kim

Kerry worked with us for over a year from first contact to closing. Our needs list had some unusual aspects that we needed to include. She was very helpful as we were moving from out of state trying to find a house to purchase in Everett. She continues to be a great resource when we need recommendations for contractors or services. Kerry is always compassionate and very patient with our 3 young children and the needs of our youngest with physical limitations. Thanks for your help Kerry! ~Margie

I've met with a couple real estate agents that I didn't go with before I met with Kerry. What made it even better was she knew me from an elementary school she worked at years prior. She's made the whole nerve wrecking process so easy for me. Very knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. I would recommend her to anyone and I also referred her to my best friend who also recently made a purchase! ~Brandon

Kerry is a fantastic agent. She helped us find our dream home in a competitive market, and negotiated a great offer. She was always very responsive to our needs and very protective of our interests, which is an important quality in a real estate professional. I would recommend her to anyone looking in the Bellingham area.
