Important information about events involving Michael & Tara Hellickson and the State of Washington.
There is a lot of misinformation floating around about how and why Tara and I sold our real estate business and retired from the sales side of the industry.
In 2007, I made the biggest mistake in my real estate career when I picked a fight with the WA State Department of Real Estate Licensing.
After winning the first (and every subsequent court battle), and in an action by the State that one judge would call “clearly retaliatory behavior”, my license was suspended.
Although it was later re-instated, the damage was done.
Eventually, we gave up fighting the unlimited budget of the State, sold our business, and retired from real estate sales.
