"Laura's reputation as a top agent is well-deserved! She is just the best! She talked us through every step of selling our house. We were so impressed with her professionalism and up-to-the-minute market analysis. She is warm, open and honest and has our utmost respect and admiration. She was always available for our questions and was always on time for every appointment. Her team of re-stylers, photographers and her brochures were all A+++. We would recommend her without reservation!"

My IT Pick for May is the new bookstore in Madison Park, Madison BKS! I am thrilled that we finally have this in our community again. My mother was the owner of Madison Park Books, which closed in 2005 (for those of you that did not live here then, it occupied the space where Key Bank is now). Not a day goes by that my mom does not think about her store…  On Mother’s Day this year, after breakfast at Bings, we walked over to check out the new bookstore and had a lovely conversation and tour with the manager. Let’s all support our local store so that it continues to serve our community!

"Laura Halliday is a visionary. When other realtors saw much less value in the property, she recognized its uniqueness, understood the benefit to buyers, and knew how to show case and market the property so that potential buyers could picture themselves living, relaxing, and entertaining in this  beautiful waterfront condominium. Not only did she have vision, but she also had a professional network that included an excellent cleaning company, a top quality stager, a brilliant photographer, expert marketers and a great estate sale company. She understood the value of breathtaking pictures on the internet, as well as stunning postcards to homeowners in Madison Park who do not use the internet to search for properties. Laura listed the property at what others thought was a ridiculously high price and in six days, had two bids above asking, setting a new benchmark for dollars per square foot in the area. She accomplished this during the months when the Seattle Times reported a slowing in local real estate sales. I have no doubt that the new owners will thoroughly enjoy living their dream here, just as my parents did for many years. Laura is both professional and real, having great integrity and a sense of humor. She is simply a pleasure to work with. My only regret in selling the condominium is that I will miss working with Laura"
