Second Annual “Santa Paws” is Coming to Town

Bring your pup for a photo with SantaSANTA PAWS is a free photo op with Santa for you and your pet happening this Saturday, Dec. 1st from noon-3PM. Hosted by Prudential Northwest Realty, this 2nd Annual event takes place at the Prudential office in West Seattle’s Jefferson Square Shopping Center, 4700 42nd Ave SW, Suite 600. Just look for the balloon festooned signs that will direct you every step of the way.

Appointments are encouraged and accepted, but not required (i.e. walk-ins are welcome). If you have questions or would like to reserve a particular time, call the Prudential Northwest Realty office at 206-932-4500.

We will also provide complimentary coffee/tea and holiday treats for you and your pet.

What? No pet? Then just stop by for refreshments and to say hello.

In the spirit of the season, we will be accepting donations for the West Seattle Food Bank AND the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program.

Bring your questions to “Ask and Answer”

 Do you have questions you’d like to ask home service professionals about your home improvement projects? “Ask & Answer” is a free monthly event where you can do just that.

Sure, you can find information online and you can get faceless referrals on Yelp, Angie’s List, etc. but wouldn’t you prefer to meet these pros in person and ask them specific questions about your specific needs? Ask & Answer provides just that. Live people!

Sponsored by the not-for-profit group, Savvy Seattle Women, Ask & Answer provides a casual, friendly, no-sales opportunity for home owners and business owners to meet, mingle and get acquainted.

Ask & Answer happens on the 3rd Wednesday of every month from 6-7PM. Drop by for a few minutes or stay the whole hour. There is no formal presentation, just mingling.

The next Ask & Answer event is Wednesday, Sept. 19th, 6-7PM at the Prudential Northwest Realty office in West Seattle. 4700 42nd Ave SW, Suite 600, in the Jefferson Square Shopping Center.

AND, if you are a business owner or independent contractor, bring your own business cards because this is a great opportunity for networking!

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


Yum!

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 🙂

West Seattle homes: Two Screaming Deals!

One of the ways I differentiate myself from many other real estate agents is to regularly preview new listings as they come on the market in West Seattle. When I was out previewing properties today, I saw two West Seattle homes that I think are exceptional values for the right buyers, so I’m going to post information about them here for you.

UPDATE: 1/19/12 This first property is SOLD.

The first is a move-in-ready 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom home in the Shorewood neighborhood. This property also has a HUGE double garage that ALSO includes a brand new studio apartment, a huge storage loft AND a kitchen equipped to run a professional catering service! The seller has already moved and wants this sold West Seattle home sold NOW, so the list price is just $329K!!

The address is 11028 26th Ave SW, Seattle 98146; MLS #303080. SOLD

 

The second West Seattle home is a rare one because it is located in the Duwamish co-housing cluster of townhomes.

Co-housing is a type of collaborative housing in which residents are consciously committed to living as a community.

This 815 sq. ft., 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom unit in West Seattle’s Puget Ridge neighborhood has soaring, high ceilings, large windows for lots of natural light, a covered porch, off-street parking and a large multi-purpose loft area in a tri-level floor plan. Community amenities include a workshop, p-patch, play area, common house with professional kitchen, laundry, internet and storage. Low HOA dues of $278/month. Priced at $172,950.

The address is 6000 17th Ave SW, #5, Seattle 98106. MLS #282235.

 

If you’re interested in seeing either of these West Seattle homes, I am the Prudential Northwest Realty agent to call. 206-708-9800.

Want me to keep an eye out for other screaming deals for you? I can do that, too. Give me a call and tell me your parameters and I will set up an automated property search that will send you information about new listings that match your criterion as soon as they hit the market.

 

An easy way to give Toys For Tots

Prudential Northwest Realty and I are proud to participate in the annual Marine Corps Toys for Tots toy drive. This worthwhile cause sponsored by the United States Marine Corps has a long and successful history. The drive is run by volunteers and depends on folks like you and me to provide toys for them to distribute to local children who might not otherwise have much to celebrate on Christmas.

My office is a collection site for new, unwrapped toys to benefit Toys for Tots. If you have toys to donate you can drop them off at my Prudential Northwest Realty office in Jefferson Square, West Seattle. The address is 4700 42nd Ave SW, 98116.

If you can’t make it to the Prudential office, call me at 206-708-9800 and I will arrange to pick up your donation at your home or office.

All donations of NEW, UNWRAPPED TOYS are gratefully accepted.

For more information, visit www.ToysForTots.org. (Sorry this isn’t a clickable link, but my blog editor is acting up and won’t allow me to insert links or photos at the moment.)

Prudential Northwest Realty welcomes Santa Paws!

What is the holiday season without a few puns?

My colleagues and I, in the West Seattle Prudential office, decided to put together a fun little holiday event for our past, present and future clients (after all, everyone fits into ONE of those categories). On Saturday, Dec. 3, 2011 from noon-2:30, Santa Claus will be in our office to have his picture taken with you and your pet (or your other friends/family). And we will give you a free copy of the photo for you to proudly display wherever!

We will also have free refreshments if you are camera-shy and just want to come by to say hello and watch the fun.

If you are feeling generous, you can choose to donate pet toys, pet food, etc. to benefit Ginger’s Pet Rescue

OR, if you’d like to add a little joy to the Christmas of a needy, yet deserving child, we will also have a donation barrel to benefit the Marine Toys For Tots toy drive. Bring you NEW and UNWRAPPED toys to the Prudential Northwest Realty office and drop them in the designated bin. We will deliver them to the Toys for Tots distribution center in late December to help brighten Christmas for a child who might otherwise receive nothing.

Questions? Give me a call at 206-708-9800. Or, if you have donations but can’t make it to the Prudential office, contact me and I will arrange to have it picked up from your home or office.

If you are wondering what this has to do with the Law of Attraction … give happy to get happy.
