Otis Hunter began his painting career in Yakima, Washington more than 20 years ago, following in the footsteps of his father, Mack Hunter and his grandfather, Paul Hunter, who started painting back in 1929. Since opening Hunter Painting in 1985, he and his team have painted more than 10,000 homes and buildings.

Otis is lucky in that not only does his wife Kelly support him owning a business, she’s helped him grow it.

They’ve have stained wood and painted walls, trim, concrete, stucco, block, brick, shingles…. you name it. And they’ve treated each and every job as though it was the most important job ever.

More than just a painter, Otis is proud to have received one of PDCA’s highest achievements—Accreditation from the Contractor College. He is a member of the MPI Master Painters Institute, and has been an instructor in the Painter’s Apprenticeship Program at Pacific Lutheran University.

Before and After Kitchen

“Otis and his group painted the interior of my whole house. They did an outstanding job. They assisted me in picking just the right color. I love the new paint. They listened to just what I wanted and did a great job.

Amy H.Otis Hunter is professional, personable and does a terrific job. Before hiring Otis and his team, I checked his references and even went to look at a couple of jobs where his past clients raved about his work.

Otis has a fantastic eye for color, wasn’t pushy but offered great advice and was really willing to work with me, be patient and do samples until we got a color that was just right. He is a perfectionist; a wonderful combination of a business professional, who is also a bit of an artist.

He shows up on time, is very responsive, and does a great job. Before he was even done I referred him to my mother-in-law who was also thrilled!

Mandy Nau“Otis and his team painted 80% of our interior and we’re very happy with the quality of work. He did it in 1/3 the time of other companies’ estimates (5 days instead of 3 weeks) – plus they were fast, efficient, clean. I was just thrilled with the experience and the minimal impact.

We’re already talking about having Hunter Painting do the exterior and the rest of the rooms in our house.

“Dear Mr. Hunter, one word can sum up the job you and your crew did “WOW”!!!! From day one, your company has really impressed us. Painter […] showed up on time, was friendly, asked for our approval after painting sections, worked a full day and finished by cleaning up all the supplies.

We really appreciated the professionalism. Our neighbors have complemented us many times on the paint job and we have told them about you. So, you might get a few calls. Please use us as a reference for your work. We would be glad to give a good word for your company.”

- Sharra and Ron Jenkins

I just wanted to write to you to let you know how very pleased I am with my paint job. My house looks like a beautiful home. First, I want you to know Nancy, your designer was so helpful in assisting us in choosing our colors. Second, Gustavo and Brad are amazing. They are a great team. They are hardworking, reliable and professional. Gustavo is like an artist and he pays careful attention to detail. Towards the last hour he went all around doing final touches. It was the icing on the cake. Thanks again.”

- Allison Dawood

We would like to express our great pleasure at the quality of the exterior painting you did for us this fall. Your crew of workers was very skilled and extremely considerate of our needs as required for the job. The fact that they were able to start and complete the job in a timely fashion late in October was especially appreciated. The clean-up of the work area was completed immediately after the last brush stroke. A personal follow up visit and interview made by the company to determine if we were pleased with the job was appreciated. Thank you.”

- Russ and Lanita Ellison

“I wanted to thank you and your team for the update you did in our lingerie department and fitting rooms. Your team came in and painted the trim on our headers, feature walls and fitting rooms and did a great job. They were in and out in days and you could hardly tell they were here except for the newly painted walls. Our hardware wasn’t here when they painted the fitting rooms so your team came back and installed it the day after we received it. Again, doing a neat and clean job.”

- Janis D. Haines, S.E.M., JcPenney – Southcenter Mall Seattle, WA

“Want you to know how happy we are with the interior painting of our house you folks provided. We were very impressed with how meticulous the guys were. So careful of our belongings. Enjoyable to have around. Kim came twice to look things over and, as always, so friendly and sincere, making sure things were going O.K.”

- Dick & Joanna Arnold

“Painted the exterior of my home. Cleaned with a pressure washer, caulked all areas needed, painted a base coat. Then top coat back roll process with a roller brush not just a sprayer. Finally finished up with the accent color and trim color. Also, they used a 25 year paint product. Great Job!

The job was completed so quickly! Everything was done within three days! The workers were clean, professional and friendly. They knew exactly what they were doing. I told them what I wanted and they did it. I even got under foot at times and they were great about making me feel that they were there to make it right for me!”

- Nancy Coutts, Designer & Owner of LaBelle Satie

“Hunter Painting contracted the painting of a 6,000 sq ft house which had intricate interior and exterior details. It was a job which needed a high-quality finish. So, we contacted Otis Hunter who has painted specialty projects for us during the last 15 years.

As predicted, Hunter Painting created a fine art painting masterpiece for us. They professionally came in on time and they submitted only one Extra based upon a change we had made. Their fees justify the high quality of professional workmanship. The top quality of materials they use to complete a project.”

- Gregory Hart, CEO, Building Fixer, Inc
