Faulkner credited his success to a commitment to customer service. Customer service for Faulkner has meant reaching out to potential clients before they are in the market to buy or sell a home.

“Service has become a buzzword in the business world, but this is something I try to live and breathe in my daily interactions,” he said. “My business is over 90 percent referral-based. I pride myself in my follow-up and the services I provide before somebody becomes my client.

“It is my obligation to be certain every buyer and seller is treated with the same exceptional level of service.

The staff at REALTOR® Magazine selects the 30 agents each spring who have excelled at either listing or selling residential property. The selection process this year focused on agents who were “ready to put recession behind them and embark on a whole new era of real estate.”

Faulkner graduated from Eastlake High School on the Sammamish Plateau in 2002 and now makes his home on the Snoqualmie Ridge with his wife Bethany and their Australian Shepard, Maddy. He currently serves as president of the largest chapter of the networking organization Business Networking International (BNI) in the Puget Sound region and is affiliated with the Issaquah office of John L. Scott Real Estate. His website is Faulkner-RealEstate.com.
