Hello! I'm Michael Duggan; thanks for stopping by.
I'm a Tacoma Realtor who can’t believe it took me so long to find the perfect job. After years as a musician working in the service industry, touring, playing shows on the side, buying homes and figuring out how to fix them up (with help from dads, professionals, and yes, YouTube), I found that I always had houses on the mind. Not a day went by without browsing real estate listings, market reports, and interest rates. My wife can attest to this! When a friend recommended diving into real estate as a professional, it just fit.
Raised in nearby Port Orchard and Gig Harbor, I've belonged to Tacoma since 2004. I've lived all over the city, in houses shared with guys, to apartments shared with other guys, and finally to significantly cozier places shared with my wife, Gretchen. There’s always a dog at home too. In fact, buying a house flew to the top of our life goals list because it was a good thing for the dog Gretchen wanted to bring home.
As a Realtor, I value respect, trustworthiness, professionalism, and kindness. Come to think of it, I values those in general. I believe Tacoma is a vibrant community, strong in its diversity, full of fantastic neighborhoods, enlivened by one-of-a-kind small businesses, growing in its recognition of the arts, and brightened by the beauty of our wonderful Puget Sound. Need help finding home here? I'm ready to partner with you along the way.
