5. Networking

We work with a network of top rated businesses to take care of the details for you: cleaning, repairing, remodeling, painting, landscaping, staging, photographing, and marketing.

6. Location

Our office is centrally located on bustling Queen Anne Avenue. This provides a unique advantage, as almost half our sales are to buyers who discover our listings prominently displayed in our office windows.

7. Technology

All of our listings are posted to a listing syndication that adds the listings to the most trafficked real estate search sites to increase exposure both inside and outside of the Seattle market.

8. Website

Our website was designed by the 2015 European Designer of the Year. Our site is search engine optimized to show up first in search results to give our listings maximum visibility.

9. Professional Photography

We use professional photography by the top photographer in Seattle in all of our listings. We use our own sophisticated photography drone to capture aerial images from unique angles. Our premium listings are also provided with video marketing.

10. Staging

We have an impressive collection of over $250,000 worth of high-end furniture for staging so we can show your home at its best.

11. Open Houses

Instead of just the traditional Sunday open houses, we hold open houses on Saturdays as well as Sundays to give homes we list maximum exposure and a competitive advantage.
