On Sunday, Nov. 18, 2012, from 1-4PM, I will be hosting an Open House at a custom built home near the Fauntleroy ferry dock in West Seattle. This 1,840 sq. ft., 3 bedroom/2.75 bathroom home includes a Mother-in-Law unit, a 2-car garage, heated office space above the garage. Set well back from the road, the house abuts Fauntleroy Creek in back, providing a truly serene environment.
Wow! Spring weather just doesn’t get any better than this in Seattle! I hope you are out enjoying it.
At the moment, I am hosting an Open House at 5919 36th Ave SW, in West Seattle’s Fairmount neighborhood. The accompanying photo is the view from the living room of this totally remodeled mid-century home. Weitzel Construction purchased this property and worked with architect, Veleta Witcraft, and turned the original 1958 design on it’s ear to create an amazing home that takes full advantage of natural light and the Sound and Mountain view. Listed at $729,000 by my Prudential Northwest Realty colleagues, The Johnson Team, it has 3 bedrooms, 2.25 baths, 2,620 square feet of living space on a 6,528 sq. ft. lot.
OR, come see it in person! I will be here until 4PM today (Sat., 4/21) and again from 10A-1P tomorrow (Sun., 4/22). As always, I am giving away coupons for free ice cream from West Seattle’s own Husky Deli, located in Alaska Junction.
Studies show that approximately 90% of all home buyers now search the internet as the first step in buying a new home. Technology makes it incredibly easy to get a virtual look at Active listings, saving everyone a lot of time and energy. I suspect, however, that a large majority of those who search online and then visit homes in person, will tell you that there is no substitute for seeing the real thing “live”. Whether by intention or not, the photos you see online can be very deceiving. Sometimes they make the home look better than it does in person and sometimes they do not do the home justice. So despite all the advantages of online searches, Open House events remain popular, particularly for those who are still not ready to choose a buyer’s agent just yet.
This is the place to access a list of all public Open House events entered in the Northwest Multiple Listing Service (aka the MLS).
If you prefer to have a private tour of homes for sale, call or text me at 206-708-9800 to set up a time that works for you.
On Sunday, March 4th, from 11A-1P I will be holding open my own listing, a fabulous 1-bedroom condo on West Seattle’s Beach Drive. Here’s where to go for photos and details: www.SingleMindedRealEstate.com/321982. Come visit me at 4004 Beach Dr. SW, then walk across the street to access the public beach through Andover Park or stroll on down to Me-Kwa-Mooks park. So much to see, so much to do.
As usual, I will be giving away coupons for a free ice cream cone at West Seattle’s own Husky Deli.
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!
Did you know that I serve ice cream at my Open House events every weekend?
Well, I don’t exactly “serve” it, but everyone who comes to my Opens receives a coupon for a free ice cream cone at West Seattle’s own, Husky Deli.
Why? Because it’s one way I differentiate myself from other run-of-the-mill real estate agents. Not by bribing you, but by demonstrating that I go above and beyond what is expected (did you get treats at any other open houses?), anticipate my clients’ needs and desires, then work to fulfill them.
As a Prudential Northwest Realty broker in West Seattle, I constantly strive to provide my clients — buyers and sellers — with exceptional service. Isn’t that what you want from your real estate agent?
This weekend, from 10A-1P both Saturday and Sunday, you can find me at 7426 44th Ave SW in West Seattle. This remodeled home, listed by my Prudential Northwest colleagues the Johnson Team, was originally built in 1921. It has four bedrooms (three on the upper level) two and a half bathrooms, 2,625 square feet of living space and a big entertainment deck to take in the Sound and Mountain view. MLS #75850. Listed for $625,000 and worth every penny.
Come take a look and pick up your coupon for free ice cream 🙂
