It List - May 2016


Our Madison Park office is currently under way! The new branch will be comprised of a boutique retail storefront called “The Park House” located at 4031 East Madison Street with an administrative annex located across the street at 4020 East Madison Street that offers room to grow. The Park House is offered as a retail living room but it will also be a venue for special events. We will showcase homes from around the corner and around the globe with a focus on sun, snow and surf destinations where our network is especially well-positioned to represent second home lifestyles and investment opportunities.


458 Crockett Street, Seattle | From the boxwood hedges to the elegant entry, this 1924 bungalow draws curb appeal from the days of Count Basie and Ella Fitzgerald, when people would sit on their front porch watching the world go by and waving hello to the neighbors as the stars came out. The home brings an English sensibility to mind; while keeping a very practical approach to the place where life happens every day, you should always be wearing your best pearl earrings. Offered at $1,150,000.


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 spread below. 


The Burrard Group, a Vancouver, BC–based real estate development firm, provided a first glimpse of downtown Seattle’s next generation condominium tower, NEXUS, and plans to offer unit reservations in May 2016, presales in Fall and break ground by late 2016 for first occupancy in 2019. Realogics Sotheby's International Realty will be the exclusive listing brokerage; Realogics Inc. will provide the marketing services. I am proud to be affiliated with a company with so much vision and cannot wait to see this project progress!


My recent alignment with Realogics Sotheby's International Realty has connected me with extraordinary talent. I am proud to introduce the first-class team I have backing my sales and marketing. This month, meet Andrea Savage, Vice President of Marketing at Realogics Sotheby's International Realty.   


With all thirteen homes sold at Montana Circle [including closed and pending], the collection of residences at Officer's Row represents the final opportunity to own a home at Fort Lawton. In preparation for the summer sales debut, RISE Properties introduces the "Officer's Club" - a tailored program for qualified home buyers (and their brokers) to receive priority sales information, gain preferred access to private events on an invitation-only basis, and participate in the Officer's Row reservation process before the general public announcement.


"My wife and I were thrilled with the representation, advice, and counsel we received from Laura Halliday. We wanted to move to the Broadmoor neighborhood, and specifically wanted to work with Laura due to her expertise in the area. At the time we commenced our search, inventory was extremely limited. Undeterred, Laura confidently listed and sold our previous house and simultaneously networked to identify owners in Broadmoor who were thinking of selling. We were so impressed and pleased with her efforts on our behalf. She really took the time to understand what was important to us and coached us not to settle for anything less than a home we loved. Laura is a pleasure to work with and is an expert on Broadmoor and the surrounding markets. She is the utmost professional, a strong and effective negotiator, and all around a very nice person to be around. We recommend Laura without hesitation."


Introducing Madoneagle, an island sanctuary of superlatives and an architectural achievement beyond compare. Enviable SW land portfolio along East Sound ranges from beachfront to high bank surrounded by a reserve. Gated and ultimately private. Reclaimed timbers, matchless craftsmanship and artisan features too numerous to list. Main estate, workshop plus guest house. Mooring buoy and near Rosario Resort marina and all-season amenities. If a picture is worth a thousand words, a visit will leave you breathless.


I LOVE monograms! These days it’s hard for those of us that do still adore this beautiful traditional look to find anywhere to purchase something custom made. Enter Walker Valentine (out of San Francisco). This company monograms everything from linen dinner napkins to tote bags. You can select the fabric you want, the thread color and the style of the monogram ~ be still my beating heart!
