Sunset Hill in Ballard Featured in Seattle Times

Sunset Hill Real Estate and more:  Find out why I love this Ballard waterfront Seattle neighborhood!

Sunset Hill in Ballard has long been one of my favorite spots in Seattle - you can read why in this Sunday's Seattle Times article by Ray Martinez:

Sunset Hill real estateMr. Martinez asked me for a lot of NWMLS numbers for the Sunset Hill article, but also was kind enough to post some of my personal thoughts o the neighborhood.  Here is an excerpt:

For Cooper, the walking factor in the neighborhood has sentimental value.

"I met my husband in Sunset Hill - he was my next-door neighbor," the real-estate agent said. "Almost our entire courtship involved walking around the neighborhood for hours daily.

"He actually proposed to me at Sunset Hill Park one evening many years ago, and our anniversary ritual, as boring as it sounds, is to go buy some crab cakes from Ray's [Boathouse Cafe & Bar] and sit at the park every year and watch sailboats."

"It is truly one of my favorite neighborhoods in Seattle. I love the fresh salty breezes and the care and attention that goes into the gardening and landscapes here."

Sunset Hill Seattle Sunsets? The article has a lot of great info and quotes and it is funny to note that none of us actually mentioned the phenomenal sunsets that are experienced on Sunset Hill! Are you interested in Sunset Hill Homes? I would love to show you around this very special neighborhood!

About Me: 

Seattle real estate has been a huge part of my life for well over a decade since I began my career in real estate,but also before that time when I was in the process of purchasing my own first home.  Buying your first home can be quite overwhelming,but I have managed to help many first time home buyers along the way.

Move up Seattle buyers and other types of specialized purchasing is a great passion of mine!  I love Seattle houseboats and you can find me down on the docks of Lake Union and Portage Bay several times a week.   Other aspects of Seattle real estate that I adore include Queen Anne Real Estate,Wallingford Real EstateBallard Real EstateGreen Lake Real EstateLaurelhurst Real EstateMagnolia Real Estate,andSeattle Waterfront Real Estate.
