After spending nearly 20 years away from home attending college and pursuing career opportunities, company owners Dan and Anne Erickson returned to their native roots in 2000. They wanted to get back to the mountains, beaches, forests and laid-back lifestyle of Washington State’s Olympic Peninsula.
Dan had enjoyed a successful career as a Sales Manager for Brunswick Corp where he was responsible for building a distribution system for recreational power boats and yachts.
Anne was recognized as an Emmy Award winning television producer for NBC affiliate, KING-TV in Seattle.
By 2002, we had purchased an existing franchised office in Sequim and TOWN & COUNTRY was born.
We soon realized that most buyers were using the Internet and many who were searching our communities did not even live in our local area. By necessity, we quickly became proficient at all forms of internet marketing. The company grew quickly and the Coldwell Banker “President’s Award of Honor” helped cement the company’s growing reputation as a solid, innovative, technology-driven real estate brokerage.
In 2009, TOWN & COUNTRY moved to a larger, more community visible location at 305 S.Sequim Avenue.
In 2012, the company discontinued its affiliation with its franchise. A shift in consumer behavior, driven by the internet, made it clear that the benefits associated with operating as a franchise had diminished.
Today, we operate a professionally managed brokerage, with a “Local Flair” which serves both brokers and sellers with exceptional marketing services. TOWN & COUNTRY has created an energized new business model which focuses on the needs of today’s consumer.
In the last few years, we started adding full motion video to every listing as well as local lifestyle videos. This has been a fun and creative experience that has delivered exactly what the consumers want; local experience and local information.
In 2014, our “Skiing Hurricane Ridge” lifestyle video was named a finalist in the Hometown Hills Video Contest by the king of video promoters… Warren Miller Entertainment.
In 2015, we opened a brokerage office in Port Angeles, Washington which has become the fasting growing office in the company.
In 2016, we purchase a Toyota SUV as another tool to support our field video production team.
Looking forward to 2017, TOWN & COUNTRY will constantly strive to stay ahead of the technological and social media curve. Rest assured, TOWN & COUNTRY will continue to offer the most innovated and relevant marketing services available.
