Refreshed, relaxed, reinvigorated: the feelings that tend to accompany the end of an island retreat. But why save the island experience for fleeting vacations that can feel all too short? Life on an island is always enjoyed in the moment and to the fullest. From sun to sand to the stress-free pace of life, there are many reasons for booking a permanent stay.

"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. Laura's ability to get everyone singing from the same hymnal in a very acrimonious situation was invaluable. And her follow up after our house closed was genuine and thoughtful. We recommend Laura without reservation."

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.

"I sought out Laura as she had sold condos in my building. She was great to work with, understood the market well, and provided just the right amount of interaction to keep things moving along. The unit was staged beautifully and was listed with terrific photos. When an issue came up with the  title company she helped unblock things before I left town. Laura was great to work with."

"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.
