Happy New Year, Modern

Welcome to the new year, you marvelous modern, you. This enthralling new office listing in Leschi took our collective breath away on Monday. Soaring living spaces with walls of windows that slide open with the push of a button. Substantial finishes that are completely modern. A cutting edge floor plan that is intimate, engaging, accommodating, […]

Wild Weather, Wild Market

My oh my, what a spring it is. This afternoon, a thunder, rain and wind storm felled trees across the region, including one that crashed onto I-5 and closed the southbound lanes through Shoreline at rush hour. Crazy stories abound. And the stories we’ve heard about this past week’s market activity are wild, too, exactly […]

Landmark In Leschi

Land For Sale

This is located on the Leschi Ridge and I really love the outlook. West facing with views of downtown Seattle, Elliot Bay, the Olympic mountain range. Not an easy thing to finance right now, vacant land, new construction. This seller missed his market but someone might have an opportunity if they have a big bagful […]

Hoisted and Moved

Archive photos can give us some interesting clues to the history of a property. In this particular archive photo of the house I sold this past week it shows that the house was moved to its present location in 1962 (left hand side of photo where it says 12-62). We then can speculate that it […]
