Bussing Broker: Week 20

After completely missing tour last week (I shake my fist at thee, rhinovirus!) I jumped on the wagon in a big way the first chance I had this week.  Yesterday I took a nice long lunch break and made a tour of the condos on offer from Belltown down to Pike Place.  The sky was a delightful Seattle gray, the temperature was comfy, and it didn’t drizzle even a little.

This has always been my favorite way to do property tour.  It’s near my office but since it’s not Capitol Hill, it’s mostly flat, and the views are always great – I’m a an admitted sucker for views of downtown, so even if water or mountains are lacking from a unit, it probably has something I like.  Now, with the experiment in touring without a car, I get a bonus opportunity to be smug everytime somebody asks, “How did you find parking?”  I should perhaps start tracking this stat, too.  It happened at four out of six properties yesterday.

Bussing Broker: Week 7

Oh my gosh, the weather today is gorgeous.  The mountains are out, and it was a great day for a walk.  I hopped on a bus to head over to Belltown for tour there and it was so nice that I walked up Alaskan Way to look at condo near Pike Place Market before coming back.  I couldn’t have designed a nicer lunch break, and not having to park in Belltown was approximately the best thing ever.

I would complain that this was the second tour day in a row where I did not encounter a single kitty, but I’m entirely too pleased with my mountain-view intake to mind.  Victories all around today.
