Port Ludlow Associates partners with Coldwell Banker Bain and new broker

Partnership will work with philosophy of focusing on new construction rather than the resale residential market

PORT LUDLOW — Port Ludlow Associates has entered into a new partnership with Coldwell Banker Bain and broker Chris Murphy.

Murphy has had success with new construction in Seabrook and most recently in Point Ruston, according to a news release.

During his time in Seabrook, Murphy held the position of vice president of sales and marketing.

In this role, Murphy oversaw the marketing department and sales team for both the Seabrook vacation rental business and the for-sale residential real estate department.

In 2013, Murphy moved back to Tacoma and joined MC Construction Consultants, the development company behind the $1.2 billion mixed-use master planned neighborhood located on the Tacoma waterfront.

Murphy managed the marketing department and worked closely with the on-site sales team to sell out their existing inventory and release new luxury waterfront condominiums.

Upon partnering with Coldwell Banker Bain, Port Ludlow Associates decided to not renew its franchise with John L. Scott Real Estate.

The decision to not renew the franchise agreement was based on the philosophy of focusing on new construction rather than the resale residential market.

Ludlow Cove Cottages is already 43 percent sold out and Olympic Terrace II is set to open this fall.

Partnering with Murphy and Coldwell Banker Bain to represent both Ludlow Cove Cottages and Olympic Terrace II aligns with this philosophy and with the future of Port Ludlow and Port Ludlow Associates.

Throughout the past few years, Port Ludlow Associates has forged partnerships including Union Studio, Geyer Coburn Hutchins and Rice Fergus Miller.

Port Ludlow Associates is the parent company of Westharbor Homes and The Resort at Port Ludlow.

Westharbor Homes is an award-winning builder that has been building for more than 20 years on the Olympic and Kitsap peninsulas.

Westharbor Homes specializes in neighborhood construction.

The Resort at Port Ludlow is made up of an 18-hole championship golf course, 300-slip marina, award-winning waterfront restaurant and 37-room boutique inn.
