Lifetime Achievement awardee Terry Miller, Coldwell Banker Bain

Currently, HomeSight is busy with overseeing a $200M project at Othello Square in Southeast Seattle.
REALTOR® Achievement awardee Beth Billington, Coldwell Banker Bain
This award (nominated by a REALTOR from a different office) is based on an outstanding achievement or multiple contributions of a REALTOR® to the local and/or state levels of the REALTOR® Association, and/or to the Industry as a whole.
Billington has been recognized by her peers as a “beacon of professionalism” in a real estate career spanning nearly 30 years and with over $1.5 billion in sales. Her colleagues and competitors alike describe her as a kind, generous, fun and straight-forward REALTOR® with incredibly clear ethics. She is involved in the community and has supported numerous charitable boards and causes financially and as a volunteer, including Hopelink, USO, Bellevue Schools Foundation, Catholic Community Services and Union Gospel Mission to name a few. Beth consistently achieves recognition in the top 1% of Coldwell Banker’s network of agents, including the prestigious designation of International Society of Excellence. Beth has built her business success on sound principles and earning the respect of both clients and colleagues.
Five to Follow awardee James Campbell, Coldwell Banker Bain
This award (nominated by another REALTOR® from Coldwell Banker Bain) recognizes a newer REALTOR® who has demonstrated exceptional talent or potential.
Campbell has been recognized as a 2021 Rising Star by Five Star Professional and “Most Prominent Agent” by Homesnap. Serving his clients with care and integrity is his biggest priority. He often says, “I do real estate with my running shoes on,” because the market moves quickly, and he has learned quickly along with it. He consistently shows up to Young Professionals Network events to build connections. “If you’re going to follow me, lace up for a marathon, because I’m in it for the long haul,” he says.
