In fact, we are one of the only real estate companies in the country to have such a well-respected expert sitting in this role.

8 Ways to Make Back to School Easier

 
The first day of school sneaks up so fast… summer is here and then gone in a flash! Whether your child is anxious or excited about the start of a more “normal” school year, here are some practical tips to help start things off on the right foot.
 
Start talking about it. New teacher, new classmates, new schedules can all create some anxieties with kids. Start talking about school a few weeks before the first day.

North King Quarterly Market Reports Q2 2021

The 2021 real estate market continues to be hot! Tight inventory has been a result of intense buyer demand fueled by historically low interest rates and the lucrative tech industry in our area. Also, moves brought about by the COVID effect of remote work options and some people moving towards retirement have brought additional buyers to the marketplace.
 
New listings are actually up from last year, but buyer demand continues to absorb the selection. This has caused above-average year-over-year price appreciation in the double digits. June had the highest number of new listings year-to-date which provided buyers some relief. We hope to continue this trend as we head into the second half of the year.
