Welcome to Orcas Island! You have arrived at the magical destination that captured my heart over a decade ago. Upon my first visit, I was sold and my family and I have had the honor of making beautiful Orcas Island home now for over 10 years. I moved here with my husband and children from the greater Los Angeles area seeking a wholesome, beautiful and natural environment in which to raise our family. We found everything we were looking for and so much more! They say, “big things come in little packages” and that statement could not be more appropriate in describing Orcas Island. If you are new to Orcas Island you might be surprised to learn just how much our island has to offer. We have a culturally rich community here on Orcas Island that is overflowing with opportunity to both enjoy and participate in the arts. Our local theatre, the Orcas Center, regularly hosts world-class musicians, theatre productions, speakers, dancers and more. Outdoor activities such as kayaking, sailing, fishing, hiking, and biking are literally at your doorstep when you live on Orcas Island. Our schools, both public and private, are top-notch in the state of Washington. I love the business of real estate. I have personally been involved in many transactions both as a professional and as the buyer and seller. I also have experience in building both in Southern California and here on Orcas Island. There are so many great places to call home on Orcas. If you’re looking for a secluded escape, we’ve got that! If you’re looking for a warm and welcoming neighborhood, you’ve come to the right place. Exquisite waterfront, soaring water vistas, huge pastoral views, organic family farm, family homes close to town, or a lot to build your very own dream home, we’ve got that too! As for my background, well experience counts! And I have a lot of experience in a number of fields. Prior to moving to Orcas Island, I lived in Southern California where I worked in Real Estate in a number of capacities including as a consulting attorney. In addition to working in real estate and as an attorney, I was also a professor of art history and taught at several colleges and universities. Here on Orcas, it’s all about lifestyle! Let me show you around and help you find the property that represents the lifestyle of YOUR dreams. I look forward to sharing with you my love and knowledge of this idyllic place I proudly call home.
"Stop! Chantelle Hildreth should be your agent. Does it make sense to choose a real estate agent randomly! Will your agent respond immediately to your texts and emails? Will they answer when you have to call them at night and on the weekend? Will they have the skill to negotiate for you to get you the best deal possible? Is that agent intelligent and energetic? Would you want them to both buy and /or sell a house for you? There is a night and day difference between a truly talented real estate agent and all the rest. Chantelle Hildreth is that agent. She did all of the above and more for us recently. We could not have had a better agent, we could not have been better represented and we are confident that you will feel the same as we do - lucky! Bought a home in 2016 in Sea Acre, Olga, WA 98279."
“Chantelle Hildreth is great to work with! We recently spent a day and a half with her on Orcas Island looking at houses. She listened to what we are looking for in a retirement home and showed us some excellent options, while providing a fun and informative introduction to the island. Based on our conversation during the day, we discovered we had a shared interest in music. She alerted us to a jazz concert that evening and encouraged us to attend to get a better sense of the community. We went and had a great time! Since our visit she has been giving us regular updates on new properties and price changes for ones that we looked at together, no pressure just helpful FYI's. Based on our experience with Chantelle, Orcas Island has moved to the top of our list of retirement location options. We are looking forward to continuing to work with her! “
“We purchased a foreclosed property with complex and unique issues that made closing quite a challenge. However, Chantelle was always available day or night to answer our questions and help us through this process. Because the deal was so complex in nature, there were issues and concerns with which she was unfamiliar. Yet she promptly did the research and reached out to experts to find the necessary answers. She was aggressive at opening doors and facilitating the forward momentum to close on the property. I could not be happier with Chantelle."
