A Successful Sale in North Seattle

Thanks to super cooperation by a number of parties, especially my clients, I was able to snap this 'selfie' putting up a sold strip today on Sand Point Way N.E.  The market is what it is, plenty of buyers and not much inventory, but this home in particular captured my buyer's heartstrings, and in large part because of the thoughtful way it was presented.  The owners are gardeners and they've created a...
