The first American settler at what is now Bucoda was Aaron Webster (1828–1911) who arrived in 1854 In .the 1860s Webster sold his claim and sawmill to Oliver Shead who officially named the settlement "Seatco", a native word meaning evil spirit or devil. The Northern Pacific Railroad located a station at Seatco in 1872. Later the town was renamed Bucoda using the first two letters of three principal investors in local industries- Buckley, Coulter, and David. In the 1880s investors began operations to mine coal in the area, but the coal was of poor quality and operations were sporadic. From 1874 to 1888 Bucoda was the site of Washington's first territorial prison. It garnered a reputation as a harsh institution as the inmates were used for dangerous and brutal manual labor in local industry. It was discontinued when the state opened the Washington State Penitentiary in Walla Walla, Washington. Bucoda was officially incorporated on June 7, 1910. The town had a water tower that was scrapped in the early 1980s. The Mutual Lumber Mill was so productive the town was once billed as the "Town with the Million Dollar Payroll." The Mill burned down and was rebuilt only to have demand wane and once again it was consumed by flames. [source: Wikipedia]

"Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $475K in Lake Stevens, WA.
Dana recently assisted us with an International relocation from Singapore back to the United States. Our move was rather non-conventional and required some very focused effort over a compressed time frame. Dana's market expertise and process knowledge created a very fluid experience that was very effective and very efficient. She worked with me through international time zones to coordinate necessary activities and always kept me informed. Everything went according to plan and was a huge success from my point of view. More important than Dana's direct skills were her soft skills and customer service. She absolutely catered to my wife and always made us feel as if we were the most important thing in her schedule. We not only found an incredible agent but we found a friend!"
