West Seattle Open House today

Wow! Spring weather just doesn’t get any better than this in Seattle! I hope you are out enjoying it.

Who’s your agent?

Who’s your agent?

One of the questions I always ask visitors to my Open Houses is “Who is your agent?” With so much information available on the internet, many buyers start shopping on their own before choosing a real estate agent, so some already have agents and some don’t. What I find interesting, and a bit baffling, is the number of people who are working with an agent whose full name they can’t even remember. If you are really impressed by someone and…

Open House events: March 4th

Open House events: March 4th

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.

Whether by intention or not,…

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

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…

Perception is everything in home values

Perception is everything in home values

This is one of those spectacular, sunny mornings that answers the question (usually posed by out-of-towners), “Why would you choose to live in Seattle where it rains so much?” They don’t understand that one day like this makes up for a whole bunch of the others. And it’s okay with me if we keep it our little secret 😉 Right now (11:45AM) I’m holding an Open House at 7426 44th Ave SW in West Seattle and here is the view…
