My last sale of the year closed yesterday. It was another flawlessly-executed, everyone-does-exactly-what-they-should-when-they-should transaction. This super-charming house on Vashon Island now belongs to this super-charming couple. Congratulations Lauren & Gennaro! It was a privilege to work with the two of you. Welcome home.
I’ve always liked the sleek look of the white high-gloss Ikea kitchen cabinets. I noticed these new mustard-yellow ‘Jarsta’ door fronts when I wasat Ikea last week. I think it’s a great accent to an almost-all-white kitchen. What do you think?
Welcome to my new website! I wanted to create a web presence that reflects the fun I’m having in my real estate career these days. What fun am I having? Aside from the usual listing & selling of homes, as Seattle booms I am getting the chance to serve more and more clients in my own backyard — West Seattle, of course, and beautiful Vashon Island. I’ll be sharing interesting properties I see coming on the market in both saltwater communities, trends in the local economies, and whatever delights me as I go about my business here.
This blog, my Facebook page and Instagram account will all see frequent posts — one of the many benefits of my job being the freedom to update social media on a whim without having to hide it from the boss! I’ll continue to cover Seattle generally, since my clients are spread all over the city, and since what happens in one part of the city tends to ripple out and affect everyone.
Feel free to steer friends, family and colleagues to my website for real estate services, and I will treat them like V.I.P.s. The site will help people keep my contact info handy, and also serve as an educational tool for one of life’s biggest financial transactions. My joy in life is to uncomplicate those transactions for friends and friends-to-be, and to experience secondhand the rush of new possibility that changing places brings.
P.S. How about that headshot! Thanks to Ian of Seattle Headshots, I look at least a decade younger! I love modern photo technology…
A big, big THANK YOU to my clients – past & current – for voting me a 5-Star Real Estate Agent again for the SEVENTH year in a row! I am so fortunate to work with such great people. It is truly a pleasure & an honor. Look for my ad on page 43 of the December Seattle Magazine!
My Mom – a former Vashon Island Broker – sold this home to the current owners back in 1986. And now I just listed it for sale. How fantastic is that? My Mom would have made her famous chili dogs for her broker’s open; but tomorrow I’ll be bringing treats from Bakery Nouveau. Please stop by Thursday 11am to 1pm or Sunday 1-4pm.
