As Owner Broker of Sound Realty, I herd the cats and work with clients that are both new acquaintances and old friends.  It's a great business.  We have fun helping others achieve their goals, both clients and agents.

I also taught The History of Rock and Roll at BCC and a few high schools years back, so if you're tired of talking about real estate and have any Music Related away!!!  I love to talk about music.  Hit me with your trivia questions.  To this day some bands stop by with CDs for me to critique...warning, I'm as tough on them as Ardell is on the real estate industry.  So don't ask if you don't really want to know.

Sound Realty and Investments, Inc. is an exercise in freedoms.  Freedom of the agent to negotiate with their clients and charge fair prices.  Freedom of the client to determine the level of service needed.  Low costs to agents so they can pass on savings to cleints, when warranted.  We are a small company with valued friends and clients.  We give our heart and soul to every effort we undertake.  We embrace change and all that new technologies can bring to this industry.  We value all companies in our marketplace and support alternative business models in the Real Estate Industry.  Change is good.  We stay fresh and new, and always look for ways to improve this industry for the benefit of consumers.  We value our clients and they value us, and most often become our friends and almost family.

It's a great time to be in the Real Estate Business in Seattle.  Seattle is the cutting edge for many new concepts, and we are proud to be in a marketplace that says no to status quo.

Everything from soup to nuts, first time buyers to investors, condos to multi-family.  I know Seattle like the back of my hand, having moved here when I got back from Vietnam in 1969.  Hard to travel through any neighborhood where I don't have former clients and current friends.
