Print Agent Bio

James Hutchenson is a problem solver who thrives in high-pressure situations. As a realtor, he loves the responsibility of creating enjoyable experiences by eliminating unnecessary stress for his clients. James worked as a licensed member of a top real estate team in Scottsdale Arizona for over five years prior to his launching his real estate career in the Pacific Northwest.  

James loves the Northwest, but he also enjoys traveling. Originally from Longview Washington, James missed the seasonal weather, mountains and ocean and returned to this region after gaining real estate experience in Arizona. Now, James is excited to develop relationships with the clients who comprise his community. 



We really can't say enough good things about James and all of his help. I am a highly motivated person when it comes to getting things done and James not only kept pace but went above and beyond to help us in our process. We had tight deadlines, an odd rental agreement, new house repairs and deep cleaning, and a tricky purchase arrangement with contingencies. James was professional and outstanding in everything he did to help. We not only had a great agent helping us adjust to life in Vancouver but we now have one of our first close friends here. Thanks again, James, for all of your help in making this transition work.

My experience was excellent with James. He was on top of everything and willing to help with other things that came up. It's very difficult to find a place and finance from 2500 miles away. Stressful. James was understanding about it and helped where he could.

— Beth Richardson

Our expectations of James and his team, went above and beyond our expectations. From the time we arrived from the airport to the time we departed Washington. All issues were met involving our new home purchase, in a quick & timely manner. James also stayed in close communication with us through each process. With James knowledge of what needed to be done, and because of his connections, tasks were done so fast! Such as a home inspection, and also the septic inspection. These jobs were completed in just hours from the time we purchased the home. As a former Realtor, I can really say, James is the best Realtor I have ever come across. We felt very lucky having James as our Realtor!

James has been an excellent resource for my family's home search. He is knowledgeable, understands our needs, and has made an offer on a property on our behalf.

James has been a pleasure to work with. He quickly figured out what type of house we were looking for. We found our current house on the first day of our search due in large part to James ability to sense what we were looking for and his ability to organize the house hunting tour. Louise was very helpful in putting together the paperwork for the offer. Louise and James were on top of the whole offer / counteroffer process and were able to accommodate our travel schedules during the whole process. James was very helpful arranging for us to make interim visits to the house so that we could take measurements to figure out how we would arrange our furniture prior to move in day. James and Louise have also been great at recommending service providers. We couldn’t imagine working with a better team than James and Louise.

I have bought and sold at least ten houses, if not more over, my life time. I've bought and sold a couple of commercial buildings, and in the course of these activities I have become acquainted with a lot of real estate professionals. Absolutely no real estate professional, in any way, approaches the quality of service that James provided to myself and my wife. He is absolutely the best. He is efficient, courteous and intuitive. He quickly figured out what we needed and gave us exactly what we needed. It seemed to me that literally nothing was too much trouble for James. If James is on your side, everything is going to work out...Guaranteed!

— Michael Morgan

Our home buying experience with James was very positive!

— Marcia and David

Thank you again James for helping us deal with all that craziness (buying a home). You really did go the extra mile.

— Doug Messnick

Great business man, very good at what he does. Hard worker, makes sure you get what you want, whether buying or selling. I recommend James and Hasson Co highly.

— Wendy McCoy

This is not your parents old mundane real estate agent. In a time when the role of a real estate agent is ever changing and evolving, James remains ahead of the curve. His impeccable attention to detail, honest interpretation of the market, and relentless drive to provide nothing but the most perfectly tailored house for your individual situation is what put James at the top of his field.

My realtor James Hutchenson is handling everything my son Spencer needs to acquire a home to raise my grandchildren in. A huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders knowing they are being taken care of as I fight lung cancer. Your priceless to me James Hutchenson!

— Sharry Debolt

James is the absolute best realtor we have ever had! He goes above and beyond all expectations and has a truly unique knowledge of his field. Love him much!

— Leslie Vise-Clark

James is fantastic! He continually went out of his way to make everything perfect with our home purchase. He was patient and understanding to our wants and desires (which were often changing, and took us a couple of months). We knew he was always working for our best interest! He's very personable, prompt, knowledgeable, honest and professional. We highly recommend him!

— Liberti van Gass

I'm writing to tell you what a wonderful experience it was buying our last home through you. I've never seen anyone go to such lengths to find us a home. I mean to drive across the state! Now that was dedication and service above and beyond what was to be expected! Your knowledge and personality warmed our hearts and when we go to buy again I know who we will look! Thank you so much for all that you did for us. I will tell our friends about you and give you an A+++!

— Jim and Leslie Finch
