Uncategorized Don’t Sell too Quickly I often hear people enthusiastically say: “They/I sold the house in a day!”. I cringe because I know the seller has probably left money on the table. The below stats (2015 King County single family home sales) beautifully illustrate the point. Controlling the market exposure to 5 to 7 days will optimize your sales price. […]
Uncategorized Wedgwood Fun This darling Wedgwood listing is fun! First, it’s heartwarming to have repeat clients who trust me with the sale of their childhood home. Then, the sellers followed our pre-listing advice—pre-inspect, address some inspection issues, some prep, tidy the yard, and invest in staging—and, as anticipated/hoped, the market response is off the charts. I thought the […]

Interestingly, in the last few weeks, the single family home market has seen over priced homes not sell in a weekend (which is a lifetime in this market). Time will tell if this was a Spring […]
Uncategorized Sold in 4 Hours! Listed this condo on Thursday and was Pending in 4 hours. Normally, we do an offer review period that runs through the weekend. In this situation, the seller received an offer they couldn’t refuse, from a buyer who has been beat-up by the market. Beyond happy for my client and the buyer. It’s truly a […]
Uncategorized Key Delivery–Fun and a Little Sad While giving clients their keys and sharing in their excitement is one of my favorite things. It’s also a little sad for me, as the frequent interactions slowly to nearly a halt. It’s a bittersweet, but certainly more sweet than bitter. This is Dani—she is fun (in case you couldn’t tell).  
Uncategorized The Market is Hot! Man oh man, is this market hot. I've been in 3 multiple offer situations in the last 24 hours. Buyers are active and writing offers. It’s an amazing time to sell! It’s also a good time to buy—interest rates are low, our demand is real (versus pre-bubble) and our local economy is booming (and diversified). […]

Uncategorized Conflicting Advice – Don’t Lose Your Ass I'm in the process of adjusting my business structure (services still the same, changing the behind-the-scenes money flow).

I'm frustrated because I'm decisive and an engineer, so […]
