Virgil Adams Real Estate works hard at maintaining a reputation for honesty, professionalism and the highest of ethical standards.
In 1953 Virgil Adams, then 28 years old, developed his first subdivision. Virgil died in 1992. He worked for various real estate agencies until 1971 when he formed his own company to assist him in the sale of the more than 25 residential developments he successfully completed over the years. Virgil Adams Real Estate, Inc. has grown to be the most successful and respected of all of the more than 60 companies comprising the NorthWest Multiple Listing Service. In 1984 he sold his real estate company to his son, Dennis Adams, who acts as broker. Dennis has been an integral part of the company for more than 30 years.
"To provide the public with the utmost professionalism, integrity and intelligent, dedicated service."
The company is purposely kept at a maximum of 17 full-time only sales agents. We feel this is optimum for our market and results in fully informed, knowledgeable and hard working sales people with a teamwork attitude. As a result, when a person hires Virgil Adams Real Estate to do a job, they are not hiring one sales representative, they are hiring an entire team to do the job.
