iRealty Virtual Brokers is a real estate brokerage like no other. Intentionally. iRealty was created with an entirely new approach to real estate brokerage. We designed our business model around our clients’ needs. Everything we do is based on our clients’ best interests. That includes everything about how we communicate and serve our clients from the first day to closing and beyond. When clients are placed at the center of the business Universe, it changes everything about how they are served.
We bring several critical components of our business model together for our clients. Imagine the best technology in the world, the best Internet tools and the best marketing strategies. Imagine bringing these tools together with a total focus to provide clients everything they need and want.
Then imagine a commitment to hire only brokers with the highest standards of honesty and integrity, and who also agree with our mission to put our clients at the center of our Universe in every way. We will walk away from a commission before compromising our clients’ best interests. Add to that some of the most experienced and educated brokers in the country, and you have a level of competence and professionalism that is almost unheard of.
We believe the best technology, extensive knowledge and competence, the most experience, and the highest commitment to honesty is the best way to run a real estate brokerage.
Consistent with all of this is the way we structured iRealty Virtual Brokers. We eliminated the expensive bricks-and-mortar, because it did not serve the best interests of our clients in this modern era of the Internet. We created technologies to serve our clients and our work behind the scenes. We use the cloud and digital transaction management. We’ve reduced costs so dramatically, that also increases the net commissions our Brokers take home. That redounds to our clients’ interest because each Broker can focus more time and effort on each individual client.
We do have a small and very comfortable office downtown Sequim where we can meet clients and where agents can work, but it’s more of a coffee shop environment rather than a sterile traditional office. Typically iRealty Virtual Brokers work out of their home offices most of the time, which is true of all agents anyway, and all participate in our Virtual office meetings, training, and webinars. They must meet the highest standards. They also tend to be well adjusted, well educated, very professional, and enjoyable to work with. There’s a reason we have such strong client loyalty.
This is who we are. We are iRealty Virtual Brokers.

CLIENTS THAT LOVE US
- ~ Testimony by Bert and Sally
"During the months of February and March 2012, Chuck showed my wife and I over two dozen homes from Port Angeles to Port Townsend. We found Chuck to be very helpful, friendly and courteous. With Chuck there is no pressure; It is all about finding the best home for the buyer. As a Buyer's Agent, Chuck will give you his honest opinion of a property, including a fair market price. In one instance Chuck wrote up an offer for us which was accepted. Chuck was very helpful arranging for home and well inspections which involved multiple trips to the property. Unfortunately, escrow failed to close when, during the home inspection process, it was determined that a septic system repair was needed which the seller was unwilling/unable to make. We will continue to work with Chuck as there is no better Buyer's Agent on the North Olympic"

"Over a year ago, during a visit to the Olympic Game Farm, we developed what we eventually called the “Sequim Syndrome.” We live in New Mexico and decided Sequim was where we wanted to live in retirement. On our second visit to Sequim, we met with Chuck and asked him to help us. Chuck's web site provides such amazing search capabilities. Chuck's site also contains a 1000 blog postings and a real estate video series detailing buying real estate in Sequim. We bought Chuck's book about Sequim real estate and set out to follow his advice carrying on an ongoing email and phone conversation with Chuck. Doing our due diligence “Marunde style” and using his MLS search site, we came up with about 50 homes that met our needs. We narrowed the list down to 15 properties that best met our needs. We came back to Sequim a third time with our list in hand, and Chuck spent two days with us showing us all the homes on our list. Not only did Chuck help us find that dream home, he spent time to educate us about the quality of construction, fair market values of various properties, home layouts, and the joys of Sequim living. We had a great time as we traveled from house to house. By mid afternoon of the second day, my wife said we had found “the house.” Chuck helped us draft our offer and sent our offer to the seller's agent. It turned out there was a second offer made on the property at the same time. Chuck's help to make a clean offer paid off. At breakfast two days later, we got a call from Chuck saying our offer had been accepted by the sellers. We are now back home in New Mexico. Chuck attends every inspection on our behalf, updating us at every turn by email and phone. Our dream home is becoming a reality because of Chuck and because we were smart enough to follow his advice. We absolutely would NOT have been able to do this without Chuck Marunde's expertise and enthusiasm. We recommend Chuck to everyone planning a move to Sequim, Port Angeles, or anywhere on the Olympic Peninsula. Chuck is a gold mine of information and expertise for home buyers everywhere, not just on the Olympic"
