Janet Jones

It's very easy to write a rave review for the agent that helps you find your dream home but what about the agent that LISTS your dream home? While divorce may line the pockets of many an agent it has to have them reaching for the jumbo bottle of Maalox. In our case the only thing my former spouse and I could agree on was using Laura as our agent. We have known Laura both professionally and socially for over 20 years. Her reputation as a top agent is hard won and well deserved. Meticulous in her approach, she is knowledgeable, consultative and respectful.

The high monthly increase seen by Seattle on the S&P CoreLogic Case Shiller Home Price Index held relatively steady from March through April 2018, from 2.8% to 2.7% respectively. This was the first instance of back-to-back monthly index gains of more than 2.25% since May 2013. It was also enough to expand the year-over-year advance to 13.1%, bringing Seattle’s nationwide lead to 20 months—second-longest in the history of the index.

"Laura Halliday is the best high-end residential real estate agent you will find in the Seattle area. She has tremendous energy, knowledge, and taste and will take care of your needs and desires if you are a buyer and your dream home exists in the NW. If you are a seller she will sell your property within a short period of time if you follow her advice. I had two expensive properties in Seattle. One was listed for four years with another highly recommended agent. Once I listed with Laura, she had it staged (expensive but worth it, it seems) and sold the aging one within a few months and the other in three. Please call me if you have any questions. Laura has my telephone and gratitude forever. Not only did she sell both properties quickly, she kindly helped with a property problem eight months after the sale."

My It Pick for the month of June is Casablanca Floral, located in Seward Park. Using only the freshest botanical ingredients, the boutique floral design studio carefully considers the recipient, occasion, and space when sourcing and creating floral arrangements. The owner of the business is Maura Whalen and she is just lovely. I recently had the privilege of discussing gardening with her over coffee at the Starbucks in Madison Park (see the photo of us above)! She traces her passion for flowers to her Italian grandmother in whose garden she used to play. If you are looking for an elegant flower arrangement for a special occasion, I highly recommend Casablanca Floral.

"I strongly recommend Laura and would not hesitate to refer my friends, family, and colleagues to her. She is the best.

Laura was referred to me by one of my colleagues who spoke extremely highly of her. I was interested in buying a new home and needed someone with expertise in the Madison Park area. I wanted someone with experience in the area I was looking and who routinely dealt with these types of transactions. From the very beginning I was impressed by Laura's knowledge, friendliness, and "can do" attitude. I felt like I was in great hands, which makes all the difference.

When we found the home we truly loved I was a bit nervous about the cost and the overall process, but Laura was great at soothing my nerves and helping me to continue moving the process forward. Although she was busy she was always willing to speak by phone or text, and more importantly she always attended any meetings related to the purchase in person to help me. For example, she attended the home inspection with me so that she could understand any issues and advise me about them. She helped me understand the concerns raised by the inspector and then did independent research about the others, contacting local builders so that we could understand whether something was problematic or not. I was truly impressed. She then negotiated a fair resolution with the builder/seller. I felt that she was doing a great job at representing my best interests throughout. Finally, she was skilled at crafting offers and counteroffers that were reasonable, warning me if I was asking for something that was never going to fly buy encouraging me to ask for something else instead. In the end I got my house!

Given how wonderful Laura was when buying my new house I absolutely wanted her help selling my prior home (a condo in downtown Seattle). Laura did an amazing job with it. She knew I wanted to sell it ASAP with minimal upgrades, but she also knew I was extremely busy at work and didn't have a lot of time to get the project underway. She went way above and beyond the call of duty by interviewing painters, finding a discount carpet shop, negotiating a deal for me with the painter and the carpet-layers, and being there to tell them what needed to be done and how she wanted it to look for maximum sale appeal. Thanks to her taking over the process and pushing it forward we were able to list the property the month after we moved out, and even better, it sold after only two days on the market with multiple offers well over list price! Other units in the same building have sat on the market for an extended period. She did a fantastic job with it.

Perhaps one of the best compliments I can give Laura (and advice to anyone reading this) is that I heard from several different agents that I was represented by "the best." When touring open houses on our own we would be asked who we were working with. When I mentioned Laura's name, the agents universally respected her and praised her. When purchasing my new home the seller's agent remarked to me offhand that I was in great hands with Laura, and he was right. Other agents are often the best judge of the skills and talent of their colleagues, and Laura was clearly respected and known by all. It made me feel good to know that I was in such capable hands, and in the end she proved that to me firsthand throughout my experience working with her.

In sum, I cannot recommend Laura highly enough. She is capable, smart, professional, and kind. She's willing to do whatever is necessary to get the job done and make a client happy. Don't hesitate to hire her -- she truly is the best!"

My “It Pick” for this month is the Vivian Rose Weaver Defeat DIPG Foundation, based out of Washington state. Committed to finding a cure for brainstem tumors known as diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas (DIPG), Katie and Simon Weaver established the foundation in honor of their 3-year-old daughter, Vivian Rose Weaver, who was diagnosed with DIPG in February 2018. They are thrilled to announce that a very generous anonymous supporter donated $1 million recently to the fund and they are hoping to raise an additional $1 million by the end of the year. By raising awareness, and increasing funding for essential research, we can make a difference and save lives. Join the fight!
