Born in Bellingham, my connection to this magical area has inspired a lifelong mission to improve the community through my involvement in business, philanthropy and the arts. I am an avid basketball player, hiker and biker! If you have ever lived in or visited the pacific northwest, you are likely aware of the natural beauty and incredible people that call this place home! I welcome new folks moving to town and love sharing my knowledge of the area, helping them make the right choice of neighborhoods and other important factors in their move. I also assist locals with all of their real estate needs. I promise to always look out for my clients and represent them in an honest and thorough manner. I will always negotiate the best possible outcome and ensure that the process runs as smoothly as possible! The Muljat Group is Whatcom County's largest locally owned brokerage and I have consistently been awarded top producer and top team. I am active in my industry and sit on the Board of Directors for the Whatcom County Association of Realtors. Some of the highlights of my career include Bellingham's largest single residential sale in NWMLS history, a $4,000,000 estate on coveted Lake Whatcom.

We had a great experience buying our home with Julian! He was very knowledgeable about the entire Bellingham area and its neighborhoods. He took all of our wish list into account and found us the perfect home in a neighborhood we hadn’t even considered before his suggestion, but it was exactly what we were looking for! Julian was also very responsive through the entire process and was always easy to talk to and discuss the home buying process. - Ross Olason
Julian and his team were a pleasure to have sell our home. Julian is hands on and goes above and beyond to ensure the his clients needs are met. They will make you feel as if you are the only home on the market and top priority. I would highly recommend working with Julian as a seller or a buyer. We looked forward to working with him again in the near future. - Dakota Coleman
Julian & Company were awesome and very professional. Julian went to the property and did a video visit walk through for us because we could not be there. Above and beyond made the process of buying property easy and pain free. We are so grateful that Julian was referred to us. What a great, professional, efficient team! Joe & Danna Micech - Joe Micech
Julian worked diligently to ensure the smoothest real estate transactions as a buyer and seller on 2 single family homes and 1 commercial property, I would highly recommend his services. I've interfaced with countless agents and he is by far the best real estate agent in bellingham! - Leif L Jones
Before deciding on an agent, I interviewed between 20-30 candidates 🤷♀️. After thorough consideration, I chose to list with Julian and his team. In my opinion, Julian is one of the top agents in Bellingham and beyond! I can’t recommend Julian Friedman and his team at Julian and Company enough! My first interaction with Julian was nothing short of impressive. I called his office, not even sure if I left a message, and he called me back almost immediately. What was more astonishing was that he was in Rome at the time, enjoying dinner on his vacation. Despite this, he took the time to chat with me and scheduled an appointment to visit my property. Originally, he planned to come a couple of days after returning from Rome. However, I was under pressure from my hard money lender and when I texted Julian about it, he immediately adjusted his plans to meet with me on the day he returned from his trip. This level of dedication was beyond anything I had expected. Julian’s professionalism, extensive knowledge of the market, and professional mannerism stood out, especially during a challenging time as I was looking to sell a fix and flip that wasn’t quite ready for the market. He and his wonderful assistant Kailee were fantastic throughout the entire process. They helped me devise a strategy and were instrumental in getting my house sold. Kailee was responsive and extremely diligent in her work. We had to overcome a few hurdles along the way, but Julian and Kailee handled each challenge with grace and patience. Ultimately, I received a full-price offer for my home. Although I was a bit rushed due to external pressures, I believe that with more time, Julian’s expertise could have garnered multiple offers. As it was, I sold the house to a lovely local family with a new baby, who absolutely adore their new home. In summary, working with Julian and Kailee was an amazing experience. If you’re looking for a real estate agent who brings a perfect blend of expertise, dedication, and humanity to the table, look no further. I wholeheartedly recommend Julian Friedman and Julian and Company for any real estate needs. - Joy Nelson
Julian worked with us from October when we were just curious about the Bellingham area until we were finally ready to purchase in July. He and his staff are friendly, professional, patient and fun to work with. - Leslie Spurr
Very successful transaction. Time was a critical component and was successfully met. Questions and concerns were addressed promptly. - Annie Reynolds
Julian was great at listening to what we were looking for, excellent market knowledge, fantastic responsiveness, great strategy advice, and amazing support through our entire home purchase. We would definitely recommend Julian to anyone looking for a home in the amazing Bellingham area. - Ryan
While working remotely out of state, I couldn’t imagine trying to selling my house without Julian and his team. Julian went above and beyond. He arranged for a full contract service (landscaping, fence repair, deck repair, moss removal, gutter work, exterior paint, interior paint, carpet cleaning) as well as beautiful staging, and I didn’t need to speak to a single contractor or coordinate anything. He helped move my roommate out and stored my non-staged furniture in the garage to get it on the market within 10 days our first conversation. He and his colleague, Kailee, did so much more, it could fill a book. For instance, Kailee, coordinated all post-inspection repairs and tasks. It was low stress from start to finish. And he secured me a great offer! Best real estate agent in Bellingham 🙌 - Mark Apicella
Julian is exactly who you need in a crazy market like this one. He put together a competitive offer while taking into account what we were comfortable moving forward with. He walked us through each step, and stayed in constant contact every step of the way to make sure we knew what was happening, and if there was anything more we could do. He coached us on our offer and our cover letter, and in the end, got us the house! Great experience, would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy! - Matt Goodwin
Very pleased with Julian’s help selling our home in a high end neighborhood and helping us get our target price. Very happy with his team and how the whole process went. Thanks! - Blake Hudson
Julian and his team went above and beyond for my wife and I as first-time home buyers. He was patient and understanding as we searched for the perfect home for over five years! Julian was incredibly knowledgeable about the local neighborhoods, parcel classifications, taxes, home appliances, construction quality, and all of the rules and regulations. He was also very helpful in helping us navigate the move to the area from California, and even offered to help us with things like accepting deliveries and checking in on the house after we closed to when we moved in. In addition to his team's exceptional knowledge of the local real estate market, Julian provided us with excellent communication via text, email, and phone calls every step of the way. He was always responsive to our questions and concerns and always seemed to be going the extra mile. When we visited Bellingham, he spent an entire afternoon with my wife and me, driving us around the city, getting lunch, and just giving us the in-depth details. He was incredibly generous with his time! We were VERY picky, and I am sure very annoying at times, lol, but Julian was always so helpful. Julian did an excellent job at negotiating on our behalf, helping us to get the best possible deal on our dream home. We closed at 16% below asking, and helped us avoid negotiation pitfalls. He also helped us line up a loan, insurance, an inspection guy, and more. SOOOO helpful. I thought a realtors job was more basic, but man, I was totally wrong. I would highly recommend Julian and his team to anyone looking to buy a home in the Bellingham area. They love their careers, and it shows. They exceeded our expectations in every way, and we couldn't be happier with the results. They are experts in their field and made sure that we were not just satisfied but thrilled with our home purchase experience. We also feel like we found a great friend... which is rare :) - Matt G
Just bought our first home with Julian's help! Julian displayed genuine empathy and understanding from the start. He actively listened to our concerns, anxieties, and desires, ensuring that we felt heard and validated. His support made a world of difference in navigating the emotional ups and downs of buying a home. Beyond his emotional support, Julian demonstrated extensive knowledge of the local real estate market. His insights and expert advice proved invaluable in making informed decisions and successfully navigating the complexities of the buying process. Highly recommended! - Josh
Julian is both a very personable and professional young man. I expect he has a bright future in his real estate career. He was so patient and supportive of me in a nearly 3-year house search. His associate Kailee was very responsive and supportive as well. - Terry Schwartz

Julian was wonderful to work with, highly knowledgeable about the Belingham area, and advocated professionally for us! I have recommend him to our friends who have also had a positive experience and were very impressed as well! - Jillian Davis
Reply: You and your family are amazing! I had such a great time supporting you with both the sale of your home and purchase of a new one. Also, thanks for sending your friends my way! It is an honor to serve them!
I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, and have lived in Washington State for over 30 years. I arrived in Bellingham in the summer of 2010, thinking that it would be a short stop along a series of travels and new destinations, as I was an artist and a musician, often on tour. Instead, I fell in love with a city uniquely its own, making lifelong friends while exploring the surrounding wilderness and islands, and embracing the lifestyle Bellingham afforded me. I began putting down my roots. I started searching for a home in Bellingham about 6 years ago, which in a roundabout way led me to Julian Friedman of Julian & Company, who I reached out to after having heard glowing reviews around town. Seeing as I am not an investor, not a moneyed California transplant, and not the recipient of a trust fund or inheritance, I always figured buying my first home would be one of the most stressful and daunting things I'd ever do. Working with Julian & Company was the complete opposite: they made this process so streamlined, exciting, and enjoyable. In my initial phone call, Julian and I discussed my house needs and house wants, which helped us set a budget, timeframe, and realistic expectations. Julian got to work immediately and was able to quickly narrow down the search to a handful of promising options. During this process, he was readily available to bounce questions and ideas back and forth, and patiently answered a myriad of questions about all things housing and financing. Within a month, we looked at three dream houses, and we made one offer on a beautiful craftsman in the Sunnyland neighborhood. Our first offer beat out dozens of other potential buyers, many of them offering tens of thousands of dollars above mine, and landed me in my first home. And the house appraised over what I got it for, and I still got to have an inspection in an increasingly competitive market while securing a historically low interest rate. I have no doubt all of this is because of Julian and his team's combination of intuition, experience, hard work, and care - and it happened so quickly and effortlessly, my only regret was that I didn't approach them sooner. All of this is to say, thanks to Julian Friedman and his team, I now own my first home, and I am thankful for all the joys, large and small, that come with it: we've since made many amazing meals in the remodeled kitchen, played badminton in the backyard, enjoyed sunsets from the deck, and had game nights and movie marathons with friends. Last spring, I planted a garden with my dad, which provided fruits and vegetables all summer. I still see Julian around town, and he always checks in and asks me how I am and how my house is coming along. Last year, Julien delivered sugar cookies to my door, and this winter, he brought me a pie for the holidays. Julian & Company, thank you all so much, sincerely. I am grateful we crossed paths, and continue to do so. - Teo Crider

Julian made buying our home out of state an exciting and memorable experience. Not only did he get our offer accepted in a competitive market, he also gave us the warmest welcome to Bellingham and was an amazing resource to have after we moved. It really made our move and our buying experience so positive and I would highly recommend him and his team! Thank you Julian! - Kristin Henderson
Reply: Kristen, It was such a fun journey getting you into such a great home. It has been a pleasure to serve as your agent and I also am so appreciative that we were able to become friends in the process. Wishing you an amazing New Year and beyond!

Reply: Working with your family was such a blast! Thanks for having me as your agent to facilitate the sale and purchase of 2 amazing homes! I'm always here for you!
Julian is the first/only agent we contacted when looking for a home in Whatcom County and we purchased the first home he showed us in less than two weeks. He helped us close under the listing price. He's busy but very responsive. You can count on him not only on finding you a home but also for home services, activities or down to the best sandwiches in town. He's also very knowledgeable of the surrounding areas. He's not only our buying but also our selling agent. Kailee, his Executive Assistant, has been very helpful to help us settle in. We're thankful Julian found us our dream home. Highly recommend Julian & Company and his team! - Iris Fu
Reply: Iris, What a dream it was helping you both find the perfect home in Bellingham and subsequently selling your Seattle home. It is a pleasure to be your Realtor but an even greater pleasure to be your friend! I always look forward to seeing you at our client appreciation parties and cherish the time we spend together! Wishing you both good health and happiness!
