Required from the Rooftops

One way to get a view in West Seattle is to get up high! I’ve been noticing lately that roof top decks have become de rigueur in new construction townhomes throughout Seattle. They provide outside space which is more and more at a premium, and, sometimes, they provide views all around.

Surprises Around Every Turn

Just when I think I might be at last up to speed on Seattle’s condo buildings and their particulars, I come across something surprising and delightful that makes me glad I am not. I cannot remember a time when a client said to me: Please find me something outside of town, the further the better. Instead, what […]

Not Quite Back

School is supposed to start tomorrow in Seattle, but the teachers are hitting the picket lines instead and school is cancelled district-wide, allowing children everywhere another day of summer.

Seeing the City

An exceptionally active market means putting many miles on the odometer. I visit dozens of homes every week, all across the city previewing, showing, structural inspections, market analyses.

Your Offer is No Good Here

Woe to some of us involved in the pursuit of real estate dreams these days in Seattle. What a week. But this is an open marketplace and there are those who are reaping unimagined gain instead. Yin and Yang. I’m encouraged to know a balance might exist.

Out and About

My business, as you would expect, takes me from place to place to place. And our current market remains so brisk that my own pace must keep up. In the past week I have been all over, and along the way I collected a few snapshots of some things that caught my eye. Downtown Bellevue’s burgeoning […]
