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


"Laura has assisted our family with various real estate transactions in Madison Park and Broadmoor neighborhoods over the past 15 years and our experience has been great. Her local knowledge of these neighborhoods is unsurpassed. Our most recent experience with Laura was when she took our Broadmoor listing at 3356 E. Shore Dr. in June 2015 which did have some challenges. While I had anticipated and fixed some items prior to listing, our first "out of area" buyer backed out due to a number of inspection items to repair. Through her contacts, Laura quickly found a local buyer within 3 days of the previous that understood the value in the property.

When the inspection list came back, daunting as it was, Laura and I teamed up to get through all items. A bit overwhelming, but with Laura's help we got through it and closed on time. I would recommend her highly to anyone looking to buy or sale high-end property in Seattle."

WOW, what an exciting time for our global brand! Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates recently reported that in 2015 its affiliated brokers and sales professionals achieved approximately $80 billion in U.S. home sales volume. Driven largely by a brand record of over 100,000 total transaction sides, this is the highest annual sales volume performance in the history of the brand and marks a 13% increase from the prior year.


My "IT" pick for the month of March is the Blood & Sand cocktail at Bing's on East Madison. A killer combination of scotch, cherry heering, sweet vermouth & orange, this libation is the perfect spring refreshment. Be still my heart!
