Casey & Laura RoloffFounders
Casey and Laura’s long-time interest in fine homebuilding began with their very first entrepreneurial endeavor: a contract painting service operated during their college years at the University of Puget Sound.
Once Laura received her art degree and Casey graduated with a business degree in '95, they fulfilled their dream of moving to the Oregon coast full time. After finding few homes displaying the attention to detail they expected from a home, Casey and Laura built their first home in 1996. They quickly identified an important market void among northwest coastal home buyers - people were seeking more than a house with a view, but a community to go with it. Bella Beach, Casey and Laura’s first community, redefined Oregon's coastal real estate market.
Bella Beach's huge success confirmed the Pacific Northwest's desire for a friendly, walk-able neighborhood. For Seabrook, they assembled a team and together decided to build their dream - a beach town on the Washington coast. A decade later, Seabrook enjoys national recognition and is becoming the Northwest’s most popular destination, perched above miles of sandy beach.

Stephen PoulakosDirector of Town Development
Since Stephen's arrival to Seabrook in summer of 2004, he has emerged as a specialist in the implementation of new resort town villages based upon principles of new urbanism and context sensitive landscape design. With a bachelor of landscape architecture from Auburn University, his distinguished career has included the provision of premium landscape design services and supervision for several esteemed American resort properties. His portfolio has grown to include private estate design, supervision of the landscape expansion for a top-ranked Relais & Chateau mountain resort (Blackberry Farm), and two celebrated new urbanism developments located in Northwest Florida (Draper Lake Coastal Village and Rosemary Beach). Both Draper Lake and Rosemary Beach's town plans were designed by the highly acclaimed and internationally recognized DPZ (Duany Plater-Zyberk) town planning company. Stephen's role in both developments included the management and implementation of the DPZ architectural code documents and the overseeing the implementation of a majority of civic amenities such as parks, pools, and other resort amenities. Both projects receive worldwide recognition and study today.
After heading west from Northwest Florida to the great Pacific Northwest, Stephen brought his broad knowledge of new urbanism and design code management to Seabrook where he both lives and works today. Here, he has successfully managed the amenity phasing and creation of Seabrook's multiple neighborhoods, parks and civic amenities. Instrumental in establishing the "place-making" principles of the town's master plan, he has worked alongside recognized town planner, Laurence Qamar and town founder Casey Roloff to create the Seabrook we all know today. Poulakos has also influenced the town's architectural style by providing on-site builder guild training, historic precedent analysis, architectural review services, aesthetic guidance, new urbanism education and representation, special project design, and overall implementation of the Seabrook Design Code. He ensures no design detail is overlooked. Active on various social media platforms, his reach to Seabrook buyers and guests tells the story of Seabrook and a Pacific Northwest lifestyle with a design eye. He has also provided planning services for other aligned projects such as The Lookout in Lake Chelan and Olivia Beach on the Oregon Coast. In addition, Stephen has volunteered for regional professional organizations as well as having served on multiple local boards and committees to better serve the greater Grays Harbor Community and to enhance Seabrook's image throughout the region.
Holly EmersonSales Agent
Holly came to Seabrook in 2004 from Mammoth Lakes, CA looking for an investment property on Washington's scenic coast. Once she arrived, she quickly realized that Seabrook would be much more than her next investment. After seeing the community and meeting the Seabrook team, she ended her trip to the coast with a new job in hand and plans to make Seabrook her permanent home. Born and raised in Jackson Hole, WY Holly has always felt at home in resort towns. Her father is a retired custom home builder and her mother works as an interior designer, so selling real estate was a natural career choice for her. After owning and operating everything from a coffee shop to a ski school in her life, Holly's background in business made it easy for her to see the vision of Seabrook and to share it with her clients. She and her husband Randy along with their children Justin, Chanel, and Zach are currently some of the many Seabrook full-time residents.
Robyn RoloffSales Agent
Robyn purchased her first home at age 18 and since that time, she has owned numerous residential and commercial properties around Washington and Oregon. Over the years, she has also owned and operated a variety of successful businesses ranging from a bed and breakfast to a video store, to various gift and retail shops. Robyn formalized her career in real estate over 15 years ago when she attained her Oregon Real Estate License and opened her own real estate brokerage in Lincoln City. There she specialized in oceanfront and luxury properties and assisted in selling Seabrook's sister community, Bella Beach. In 2003, when it became clear that Seabrook would soon make its debut on the Washington coast, Robyn began to transition her real estate career to Washington as well. Today she is proud to share Seabrook with her husband Doug, her daughter Darci, her son Casey, and both of their families while her eldest son, Bill assists in the daily operations of Seabrook's other sister community, Olivia Beach in Oregon.
Darci Roloff KeeferSales Agent

She attended Washington State University and graduated with a teaching degree from Warner Pacific College in Portland before moving to the Oregon Coast with her husband. On the Oregon Coast, she watched her real estate career thrive while she sold homes in Seabrook's sister community, Bella Beach.
