It List - JUNE 2016


Earlier this month, I joined over 55 Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty representatives in Las Vegas for the annual Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates Global Networking Event! It was a superb event, complete with numerous breakout sessions covering topics from Brand Conversation and Negotiation to Leveraging Media and New Developments. One of the best parts was networking with more than 2,000 SIR brokers from around the globe. I am so proud to be a part of this extraordinary brand. 


Featured in Seattle Magazine | Realogics Sotheby's International Realty recently coordinated an extensive insert in the latest edition of Seattle Magazine, featuring 14 different neighborhoods around the sound. I was asked to be the resident expert for Broadmoor and Madison Park, sharing my love of these treasured neighborhoods. If you are interested in reading more about your neighborhood, I invite you to explore the full spread below! 


Seattle home prices have hit a record and are now rising faster than any major city outside the Pacific Northwest, according to the latest S&P/Case-Shiller data. Compared with a year ago, Seattle area single-family home values in March were up 10.8 percent, behind only Portland, where prices have shot up 12.3 percent in the last year. The Seattle growth rate was more than double the national average of 5.2 percent.

"Laura Halliday of Realogics Sotheby's International Realty represented us in the recent purchase of a home in Broadmoor. If I were a school teacher, I would have given her an A plus. Laura has all the qualities one wants in a real estate agent. She has experience, integrity, reliability and patience. She is also an extremely hard worker. She is the kind of person one would hope to have as a friend, neighbor and business associate. The laws and regulations in purchasing a home have become extremely complex since the Great Recession of 2009. There was great peace of mind in having Laura guide us through the challenges and complexities of purchasing our new home."


I recently learned about WeWork, a company that transforms buildings into beautiful, collaborative work spaces that encourage a co-working environment. With a network of over 40,000, it is easy for members to get inspired and thrive. I find this concept fascinating - membership is affordable (starting as low as $45/month) and offers a network of thousands of potential customers. WeWork currently operates co-working spaces at three locations in Seattle: The original location in South Lake Union, as well as newer spaces in the Holyoke Building and Westlake Tower in downtown Seattle.
