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 14

Spring has definitely kicked off, because this week has been astonishingly busy, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to let up any time soon.  Despite that, and clients running me from hither and yon, I did make it out on tour this week.  (I suspect next week isn’t going to happen, though.  We’ll see.) I went on Wednesday, and this is the first chance I’ve gotten to sit down and write it up.

Given the frantic pace this week had, my goals for tour were pretty modest.  Three properties, a condo and two single family homes, in Fremont and Wallingford.  I caught the bus to the first property, walked to the other two, and then used a bus-train combo to get back.  This was slightly less than two hours round trip, including the tour, and I got a lot of correspondence and planning taken care of while I was on the bus, so it worked out pretty well.  Also, the weather on Wednesday was gorgeous, and everything is in bloom, so that was a really nice walk to take in the middle of the day.
