I am very proud to say that my wife and I have had a combined 7 generations of Family living on this amazing Island! Watching our two children run and play on the very same beaches that I played on as a kid brings a smile to my face every single time. Over the years I have met so many wonderful new people that have relocated to Whidbey, bringing with them very positive additions to the Island's already rich culture and diversity. It is our responsibility to continue to welcome all of the positive changes to our Island while simultaneously maintaining a healthy, sustainable level of growth. After all, I would love nothing more than to have an eighth and ninth generation of my Family building driftwood forts on our beaches!

I chose Real Estate because I love this business! It is all about building and maintaining relationships with people and earning their trust every single day. I am fiercely loyal to my clients and will help guide you through any hiccups in the process and leave you with the feeling that the whole process was as simple and stress free as possible. Technology has forever changed the Real Estate industry for the better, making communication with my clients easier and providing easily accessible, real-time information available at your fingertips. But ultimately, technology can only lead us so far. In the end it all comes down to creating trust based relationships and the ability to interact and communicate with one another.

Why choose me as your Real Estate professional? Simply put, I would consider it a great privilege to oversee and guide you through what is for most of us, a transaction based on significant events and changes in our lives. I can assure you that I will treat you and every member of your Family with the same exact level of care and professionalism that I would expect to be given to a member of mine. My promise as your Real Estate Broker is to make this process as seamless and stress free for you and your Family as possible. I can also guarantee that we will even manage to have a little fun along the way! Let's get started...


Purchasing a home can be intimidating, especially when it is your first time. Finding the right home, in the ideal neighborhood, that is within your budget is no small task. I am here to guide you through every step of the way and be your advocate. You come with the dream, I will help you get there.


Your home is likely your largest asset. Selling it may be the most important financial transaction you will make. If you are like most, you want to make the most of your investment and sell it for the best price with the most favorable of terms.  I am here to help guide you through every step.


"Gregory was extremely responsive and timely throughout the entire transaction. He somehow managed to make every appointment time I requested happen. I work 9-10 hour days so this meant weekends and evenings. What I appreciated most though was that he genuinely listened to my new home wish list and presented property options accordingly for us to consider. He gave us valuable insight when we asked questions, and we felt like his objective was to actually help us find the right home, not just make a sale. The home we were looking for was intended to be our last, and I was pretty demanding (sorry Gregory!). I was very specific about what wanted and I wasn't going to settle even if it meant we would be in a rental for an undetermined period of time. Gregory was patient and never once made us feel rushed or pressured. I would absolutely recommend Gregory!"

"Gregory is an outstanding realtor! My husband and I were thrilled beyond expectations in terms of service, responsiveness, personal attention, care and fantastic results! Gregory helped us prepare our home for sale and went the extra mile. For example, he brought his truck over and helped us move some furnishings, cut our grass for us when we were out of town, and provided some staging materials that made our home show well. We have no doubt that Gregory will do everything he can to help you be successful. Our home sold over asking price within a week. Then Gregory helped us find the ideal home for us to buy because he listened carefully to what we were looking for and he has detailed knowledge of the market. He follows through with every commitment he makes. He is very personable, and who works well with other realtors. You can be confident that you will receive the very best realty services if you choose Gregory as your realtor."


"We went through 3 different agents before finding Gregory as a stroke of chance at an open house. We'd bought a place within 3 months. Gregory is incredibly knowledgeable about the island and all of the different details and gotchas. I couldn't imagine buying a place again without access to that knowledge! He was also a great communicator, and worked with our sometimes erratic schedules. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone looking to buy in Whidbey."


"Gregory was amazing for us throughout the entire process. We hadn't bought a home before and expected it to be very stressful. Gregory made it anything but that! His communication was amazing, never left us wondering what was going on or waiting for any answer. He made every bit if the process as smooth as it could be, quickly responded whenever extra information was needed, and his suggestion during our initial offer are the reason we got our house!! If you are looking for someone that will make your home buying as easy and fun as possible, and will go above and beyond to help, look no further. Gregory was amazing!! You will be with the BEST if you choose him."

"I know 5 stars, right?! Must be a bought review. Nope. This is the real deal. If you want your dream home, in your dream location, actually IN your price range, all the while being treated with great respect and consideration. Gregory Young is your guy. I mean it. We have been looking for the right home for a couple years. While a couple of years....well sometimes life got in the way. Sometimes it wasn't the right time in the market but Gregory never gave up. And he always gave us hope. He was patient and supporting throughout the entire process. There were times that my parents wanted to look at houses just because they were wanting homes to open up sooner. They would want to come see a house just parents were worried or anxious to start the next portion of their life. Gregory would give us all the information about the houses and properties and gently add his input when he knew it DID NOT FIT there needs or budget. And there were times when he called and said I think there is a home or property that was interesting and had potential. We lived in Eastern Washington, so he really weighed each property and house to see if it was worth the drive and expense. He had the respect to tell us if he thought a house, we were wanting to look at out of desperation, was not the right fit nor worth the time and expense that comes with traveling from the Eastern side to the Western side. I just can't express how impressed and grateful I was to Gregory for ow he looked out for my parents. He really did speak his opinion when he heard my parents trying to rationalize a house that did NOT meet the needs they have. On the same note he would speak up if he knew a house was likely to meet our needs and we should get over here to take a walk through. three years he hung in there searching the market for a house that REALLY met my parents every need. In the end he called us and said I know we are meant to look at a house today but a new house just came on the market this morning and I think it is the house for you. He did not disappoint. He not only met my parents every need but he also found a house that possessed some of our wants. And wants that we NEVER thought we could afford. In the end. Gregory Young really will take all your needs, wants hopes and desires for your perfect home and deliver your dream home. He listens. He hears you. And he will deliver your perfect home for you. He negotiates your needs when its time to buy the house. He is on top of every step and will do all the hand holding you need (and we needed a lot with everything life was throwing our way). We feel like we made a new friend. he makes you feel as though you are apart of his family. he takes care of you like you are family. Trust me when I say you want Gregory Young in your corner. He will deliver you the perfect home at the budget that works for you."


"Gregory is A Total PROFESSIONAL ... Efficient, Kind, Caring, Gets The Job Done, Knows his Business, Great Sense of Humour. My Home Selling experience was STRESS FREE and Enjoyable, which I never thought possible:) I was looking for a realtor who would treat me as an Equal, would keep me Up To Date and Explain everything Clearly and Quickly, who would go Above Board and Beyond to help me, who would put in the hours of work and not just take the fee. I found Gregory did all of the above. But I wasn't surprised as I'd done my homework reading lots of reviews, and he OUTSHONE EVERYONE, and that was my experience too. I gave Gregory an interview before accepting him as my realtor, as I am skeptical of realtors in general, but Gregory in his Cheerful way had not minded at all (Sorry Gregory) ... I would have no hesitation in Recommending Gregory to my family and friends (which Iv'e done). Thanks Gregory for making me feel I was the only client, I'm sure you were very busy behind the scenes selling other Homes too, but I never felt you were too busy to answer My questions, and I Appreciated your fast Responses ... GREAT EXPERIENCE!"


"Gregory is very personable and we felt supported through the entire home buying process. Gregory had a well rounded point of view from the start to finish. We would highly recommend him."


"I highly recommend Mr. Gregory Young as a capable and knowledgeable real estate agent. I met Mr. Young as my husband and I were evaluating a piece of vacant land on Whidbey Island and he was recommended by the list agent. From the start until we closed the transaction, Mr Young guided us through skillful negotiation skills, detailed knowledge of local landscape, and careful follow through. Mr. Young was very accurate in suggesting the right offer price and the length of feasibility study. We were able to finalize the purchase price much lower than we originally thought and secure a favorable timeframe for feasibility study. Mr. Young was very acceesible via email, text and phone, and responded to our questions quickly. His priority was not to close the deal as soon as possible, but to negotiate the most favourable terms for us. I truly appreciated that. After the our offer was accepted, Mr.Young sent us a customized calendar detailing each deadline of all contingencies. He stayed on top of those dates throughout the process and reminded us of each deadline as they came. He spent a long time walking through the neighborhood patiently with us, giving detailed and fair accessment of pros and cons of the location. Again he wanted us to find a good fit, not just closing the deal. The best part of working with Mr. Young was his local knowledge and connections with local business professionals. Mr. Young recommended us a great feasibility study firm who completed the evaluation on time. When we ran into questions and roadblocks during the process, Mr. Young was effective to pulling in the right persons to resolve the issue. We read online about some planning by the city of Freeland and we were concerned. It was Mr. Young who quickly asked around with local folks and pointed us to the right directions to get the most up to date information. I had a lot of questions and requests during the closing process and Mr. Young answered every one of those efficiently. No question was too simple and no request was too bothersome. Mr. Young went above and beyond his duty. For example, once he received the key to the beach access, he checked that the key does work and sent us a picture. It was a pleasure to work with someone like Mr. Young who truly understood his clients' perspective and put our satisfaction as his first priority. We are pleased to have purchased the property with Mr. Young and would definitely work with him again when we have real estate needs on the island. We have worked with many real estate agents through the years and Mr. Young is hands down the top one."

"Thanks so much, Gregory, for providing the best possible guidance and support throughout the entire process of selling our home. You listened to exactly what my husband and I wanted and answered all of our questions - and there were many! The patience and professionalism you showed made it possible for us to experience a successful house sale. Before we put the house on the market, you gave us a detailed assessment of the maintenance and cosmetic improvements that would make the house more appealing to buyers. When the house was ready to sell, you staged the main rooms. We were blown away at the amazing job you did of marketing the house - it sold in a matter of days! The online advertising and quality photographs were top notch. I would encourage anyone planning to buy or sell a house on Whidbey Island to contact Gregory Young. He's the best!"

Thanks Greg, Caryn and Chris Ploof

"Thank you, Gregory, for everything you have done to help us purchase our new Langley home! You have been an absolute pleasure to work with, and made what at times seemed a difficult process, as simple as possible. We will continue to highly recommend you to any of our friends and family. Your patience, knowledge, and calming spirit kept us positive that we could make this work. We especially appreciated your daily communication, keeping us informed. Thank you again for all that you have done for our family."

"Working with Gregory Young at Coldwell Banker Tara Properties far exceeded all of our expectations. His knowledge of Whidbey Island was limitless. Being new to the area we needed help every step of the way. He happily helped us with every request we had, from restaurant recommendations to home renovations, even outside of our transaction he continues to be our first line of defense when we are in need of help. Gregory's long-term relationships with vendors in the area helped us enormously. He is very well connected with what seems to be every type of vendor we may ever need. He has worked in the industry with local builders and is involved with several volunteer organizations. Gregory is by far the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. He was very knowledgeable about the entire process and was always one step ahead of our questions. His communication with us throughout the entire process was exemplary. If you are lucky enough to find Gregory, you will have found the most honest and loyal Realtor on Whidbey!"
