Another year has passed, as have many pivotal milestones for Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty and the local housing market that we serve. The Seattle/Bellevue metro area led the nation all year with median home price increases, according to the S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller Home Price Index and despite the anemic inventory levels, our brokerage generated $1.5 billion in sales volume – the greatest such production on a per-broker basis compared with the top ten largest real estate brands in the Northwest Multiple Listing Service.

According to a recent Mansion Global article, "In March, Seattle was the fastest moving high-end market in the country, with homes flying off the market in about a month and a half. In sunny San Diego, which was fifth on the list, the typical high-end home sold in about 75 days; and in the home of country music, mansions in the Nashville-area, which ranked ninth, sold in a little over three months."

"In all aspects of my professional life, I run into folks who are exceptional in their given trade. Laura, is a true genius and outlier in real estate sales, marketing, and negotiations. Laura brought forward a team of experts including a designer to stage our home and get a price that exceeds our expectations. On the purchasing side, Laura found us a home that fit our family, expertly negotiated pricing and options on our behalf and saw us through all aspects of the sale of our home and purchase of a new property. Laura’s professionalism, poise, and approach are unmatched and we are indebted to her. We are loving our new home and would not be in this position without Laura’s help. The Seattle market is so crazy right now you really need a true professional to help you navigate and strategize how to successfully buy and sell. If you don’t hire Laura you are selling yourself and your family short. He is the best in Seattle hands down. Thank you, Laura!"

My “It Pick” for this month is local stylist, Michael Bruce, who I met at an event last year. I was so impressed by what he offers that I had to include him in my monthly newsletter! He is a great guy with a fun personality and a great sense of style and he helps you be a better YOU.    

Style is more relevant than people realize; it permeates every aspect of how we conduct our daily lives. Personal style makes a statement about who we are; but even more importantly, it conveys how we feel about who we are. Professional style does the same, but it also conveys how successful we feel about what we do. Personal and professional style combine to create a brand; it is Michael Bruce Image Consulting's job to help define your brand identity.

"We have worked with Laura on three real estate transactions. Laura was our purchasing agent five years ago. When we started looking for a new home, there was no question that we wanted her on our side again. Over the past three months, she has worked with us on a challenging contingent purchase within Seattle's most competitive market. Laura navigated the extreme highs and lows of this stressful landscape with an ease, grace, cool and elegance that is unique to her. She is passionate about her work and is a true advocate for her clients. We exchanged ideas at nearly every hour during a day, on nearly every day of the week until we were able to simultaneously close on the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new property. On many occasions, she skillfully buffered, as only a seasoned agent would, our interactions with our counterparts. We are thrilled and thankful that we had Laura on our side."

My “It Pick” for this month is the thrilling book, "Red Notice: A Story of High Finance, Murder and One Man's Fight for Justice." I recently finished listening to the audiobook and couldn't put it down! I highly recommend reading (or listening to) this if you are looking for a fascinating exposé that is part business, part political memoir. You will not be disappointed.
