seattle wa real estate: Twitter Riders On My Signs... - 06/22/09 05:41 AM
Is Your Seattle Home on Twitter?  A follow up to a few popular Tweets..... I had tweeted a while back that I had started adding Twitter riders to my for sale signs around Seattle.  I got a ton of responses ranging from "why would I ever do this" to "wow that is a great idea!", but most of my signs do have this rider on them.
I obviously agreed with the latter or I would not have invested the funds to have some gorgeous wooden riders made for my company signs, but my reasons might surprise you.  I fell head over … (2 comments)

seattle wa real estate: Greenwood Homes in Seattle: A Prime Example of Seattle Living! - 06/05/09 09:08 AM
 Greenwood is a great neighbrohood in Seattle! 
Greenwood is actually one of the first neighborhoods of Seattle that I lived in - I loved shopping at the Fred Meyer on 85th, Top Ten Toys, and Gordito's back when they were located across the street from their current location.
My favorite in Greenwood?
Gorditos - healthy Mexican food  (unless you eat too much)
My least favorite thing about Greenwood?
The sink holes if you happen to live in the bog...  Many homes are right on the edge, though and out of the bog...

seattle wa real estate: I am not selling you a house!!!! What? - 09/02/08 04:06 PM
 Seattle is a great place to buy a house, but I am not selling you a house!   I am a Seattle Realtor, but I absolutely do not sell houses.  I don't sell dreams or sell great investments.  You see, I can't stand the traditional cliché of a sales person,  and I have never considered myself to be one.  In fact, I was an accountant before I ever became a real estate agent and the sales people drove me nuts!  I mean no disrespect towards any of you genuine sales people out there, but I am just not one of you.  … (15 comments)

Seattle:  I like this rainy day ferry scene... I have a couple showing appointments today in Northern Seattle and I am thrilled that it is such a nice day, but tomorrow does not seem to be looking as nice!  I actually heard that we might get another summer rain for the end of August just in time for my open house!

seattle wa real estate: Seattle Staging?(These Were Not Mine): The Rest Of The House Was Great, But......... - 08/19/08 05:01 PM
I love Staging!  Staging is one of the major things I think should be done in this day and age when you are selling a house in this market. I want all my listings to be cleaned and Staged!  A buyer needs to be able to come into a house and feel comfortable with the surroundings!  I was in a house the other day that for the most part had some drop dead gorgeous Staging through out, but there were a couple VERY STRANGE things and I had to share!

Dried beans and waxy candle leaves..... This first … (4 comments)

Seattle real estate has been tricky lately.  Buyers are getting pretty much what they want and sellers are learning to play ball.  Yes, the mortgage rates as of late have been all over the place and have a huge impact on affordability when it comes to buying a new house. 
Looking in your correct price range is helpful when it comes to avoiding sticker shock.  The only way to know if you are in a good price range for your situation is to talk to a good mortgage person! Rates change, but looking at an appropriately priced house to begin with … (2 comments)
