A Brief History

Since Helen Yunker played a primary role in the incorporation of the Pierpont Beach area into the city of Ventura in the 1960's, the name has been synonymous with real estate starting with the beach and marina areas and eventually growing to cover the hillside and beyond. Built on the corner of Pierpont Boulevard and Seaward Avenue in 1979, the offices of Helen Yunker Realty remain at the heart of Ventura today. 

In 1986, after being friends for 10 years, Helen and Marty Harder formed a business partnership, which led to Marty taking over all of the operations of Helen Yunker Realty. In 1992, Marty Harder became the sole proprietor of the company and continued in the legacy of Helen Yunker Realty as the dominant real estate firm in the Ventura beach and marina areas, while expanding the company's market share to the rest of Western Ventura County. 


In 2008, Marty brought Jim Wick on board as a partner. As a longtime broker and associate of Helen Yunker Realty, combined with a shared personal philosophy that professional personalized service and integrity for the client are key, it was a natural move for Jim to become Managing Broker and oversee the day-to-day operations. Jim Wick brings over 30 years of personal experience and knowledge to Helen Yunker Realty and the Ventura real estate market.

Through the highs and lows of our real estate markets, Helen Yunker Realty has remained a constant. While large national name brand companies expand and consolidate, we remain in the same location, following the same ideas and providing the same high level of personalized service to our clients. This dedication to our clients and our city has made Helen Yunker Realty one of the most successful long standing independent firms in Ventura.
