About Us

We’ve been turning houses into homes for over 15 years.” – Ralph Black

Alliance Properties is a family owned company started by brothers Ralph and Mike Black.

In the early 90’s the development landscape in Bellingham was starting to change. Inside of Bellingham there was a shift from building large homes on large lots to a more tightly knit neighborhood with dedicated open space. Having lived in Vancouver for a portion of their lives the brothers saw an opportunity to bring some larger city luxury to the small town feel of Bellingham. Starting with their first subdivision “Magnolia Hills,” the brothers along with Susan Black began to set the standard for quality and functionality for the Bellingham area. Over 400 homes and 15 years later, Alliance continues to be one of the premier developers in Whatcom County.

Alliance Properties is a full blown family operation with the additions of Travis Black and Beth Black (Son and Daughter of Ralph Black).
