BELLINGHAM, Wash. — Kena Brashear and Peter Ahn, who have a combined 27 years of experience at The Muljat Group, acquired the Bellingham residential real estate brokerage on December 1st according to a press release published today, December 12th.
Brashear and Ahn bought the firm from Troy Muljat, the owner since 2017. Muljat’s father, Frank Muljat, founded The Muljat Group in 1988. Troy Muljat will continue to be a broker at the firm and run his separate commercial real-estate sales/leasing team as well as co-own the property management company, Landmark Real Estate Management.
Brashear was hired by Frank Muljat 20 years ago and promoted to designated broker in 2017. Ahn joined The Muljat Group 7 years ago and retired from the US Air Force earlier this year.
“It was a natural fit for both of us,” Brashear said. “We truly are a family at Muljat Group. We are so grateful for all of our brokers, managers and support staff and Peter and I love helping Muljat brokers develop their businesses. Frank Muljat had a vision in the late 1980s and it is our goal to carry on the Muljat Group family legacy.”
Ahn said operations wouldn’t change much at The Muljat Group, which has approximately 100 brokers in 6 offices across Whatcom and Skagit Counties.
“The time was right for new life, new ideas, new leadership and new ownership,” Troy Muljat said. “My family started the company based on some core values: Honesty, integrity, and hard work. The culture attracted the best of the best in real estate. The Muljat real estate name has a long and strong history here in our community, and I fully expect that legacy to continue.”
