Ken Barcus – Managing Broker/Owner
I am a 30 year resident of the Colville Valley and a graduate of Chewelah High School. I grew up on a dairy farm outside of Chewelah in Summit Valley, while I left the dairy farm behind, I am very fortunate that I continue to live nearby and am able to raise my family on a 240 acre ranch.
I started my career in Real Estate sales at the age of 21 and enjoyed 10 successful years with a company prior to opening my own firm ~ RE/MAX Select Associates, in June of 2006. My mission then, and still today, was to provide a level of customer service and care that went beyond our customer's expectations. Nearly 12 years later the community and the people we serve have echoed their approval by lifting RE/MAX Select Associates to the position of market leader for 8 years and running.
As a top listing and selling Broker for the past 22 years, I have vast knowledge of our area compiled with well over $100 million dollars in sales volume experience to help guide you through even the most difficult of transactions. I have served two 3 year tours as a director in our local Association of Realtors, President of our association in 2009, along with 7 years as a Washington Realtors State Director. In 2011 I was awarded the prestigious RE/MAX Hall of Fame award and in 2015 I was honored to be given the RE/MAX Pacific Northwest Region “Outstanding Brokerage of the Year” award for small markets.
My team “Ken Barcus Properties” has ranked multiple times in the top ten teams in the vast Pacific Northwest Region for total sales volume. The team consists of Ken Barcus; Listing Specialist, Managing Broker and Team Leader. Jenny Jones; Buyer Specialist and Jim Sweet; Buyer Specialist/trainer.
Together we are here to serve all of your Real Estate needs.
