Bussing Broker: Week 28

The sun is shining and I shamelessly abandoned the office for a lunch time tour.  I hopped on the train, took it down to Pioneer Square, then worked my way north until I was at Westlake station.  Back on the train and back to work.  That netted me visits to five properties and some spectacularly great views of downtown and the sound.  It was a really great Tuesday tour, and I’m not just saying that because it didn’t involve Queen Anne.

The takeaway theme for today was, “Isn’t this a great balcony? It’ll be quieter, of course, when they finish work on the viaduct.”  Someday!

Bussing Broker: Week Jury Summons

I was just getting back into a streak when, out of nowhere, Jury Summons!

Actually, it wasn’t very out of nowhere.  I was summoned in August, replied with a, “Hahaha, no, try October,” and they obliged.  Nevertheless, it means I spent my property tour time this week hanging out at the Federal courthouse and raising a laminated placard with a number on it.

And now, rainpocalypse!  I love autumn.  I’m just hoping my office keeps power long enough for me to wrap up everything on the to do list.

Next week, though, we’re touring some things.

Bussing Broker: Week 27

This week was a car week in Queen Anne.  I made it to five places before I had to dash off to meet a client.  I went for houses in the less transit-accessible portions of the neighborhood.  There was a fun range available, with some in need of a lot of TLC and others that have had a full overhaul.  It was also practically a textbook example of what different price points will get you in terms of finish quality and views.

Of course, the low end of that text book example was still listed for over $500,000, and I wouldn’t consider it over priced.  Oh, Queen Anne.  So charming, so expensive.

It has been a long time since I found a kitty to pet on tour.  I’m tempted to call the local staging companies and put in a request for decorating houses with flesh and blood felines.  With the trend toward listing vacated properties, that’s probably the only way I’m going to keep getting my cat-fix at work.
