McHugh Realtors closes

After operating in Sequim for more than 35 years, local Realtors Paul and Rochelle McHugh are retiring.

Paul McHugh said they sold McHugh Realtors to Alan Burwell in 2006 and he operated the business until Aug. 1, when he moved his operations to the Windermere Sequim East office.

"We started winding down and not working as much as we did before (in 2006)," McHugh said. "Now that he has closed the company we have decided to retire completely."

Burwell did not return a phone call requesting comment and staff at Windermere Sequim East said he is on vacation this week.
