About Herm

Herm Gunst is a seasoned real estate broker having earned his real estate license in 1987. His extensive experience, market knowledge and expertise is why his clients come back to him time and time again. Prior to his real estate career, Herm owned his own dry cleaning business in Lynden and worked in construction for a building contractor. This latter experience proved beneficial to home buyers as he could quickly ascertain the construction quality of a home.

Herm isn’t shy about pointing out deficiencies in a property or the pros and cons. It is part of his nature to provide his clients with the information they need to make an informed decision regarding buying or selling. He has always enjoyed working with people and being of service. He enjoys the challenge of a transaction and putting all the pieces together from the offer to negotiations and the pending to close details. He likes to say that his approach is “no pressure” but he knows his clients well enough to encourage when appropriate.
