High Point West Seattle Homes/Condominiums (Real Estate) For Sale

As the self-titled “resident green agent” in High Point, I wanted to give a quick update – we’re headed into the Fall selling season in West Seattle and there are some very nice single family homes, townhomes, condos, and even a carriage home for sale.

To be clear, as a Washington licensed real estate broker I represent all types of property, not just what is considered “green”. I have additional training to help people identify green real estate (healthy homes), which is especially valuable to those who have chemical sensitivities, asthma, or allergies. But when it comes to West Seattle, especially High Point, I am the expert.

See High Point West Seattle Homes For SaleSome homes currently being marketed for sale require lender approval (short sale). Ask for details.

What makes High Point so great?
Well, first of all, it is in West Seattle. I have lived in West Seattle since 1997. And I won’t leave. It has everything I need so I don’t actually have to leave at all, which is nice. And for when I do want to pop downtown for a night out, pick up someone at the airport, or go mall-hopping at Southcenter, all of that is within 15 minutes (using the West Seattleites travel tips, which I am happy to share).

It was wonderful to have the opportunity to buy a brand new home in a Built Green Certified Community right in my own neighborhood. I lived within a mile of this location for ten years, and watched the development of this community over that time with great interest. When I took a property tour in April 2007 I wasn’t looking for a new home and had no intention of moving – but what I found in High Point made me put my house on the market almost immediately, and the sale of our home on 18th Ave SW and the purchase of our townhome on SW Raymond all managed to squeek through right at the beginning of the real estate market fallout. We feel lucky that we managed to get moved and settled without any hassle.

The utilities are underground so the views are not impeded by anything…but trees. And I like trees. The old trees in High Point were saved during redevelopment and they *make* this neighborhood. There are great views of downtown, sunrise, sunset, trails in the woods, access to Camp Long and the Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail all within walking distance.

If you are considering a move to West Seattle…
Call me. Or email me. Or send me a message on Facebook or Twitter. I know the Westside inside and out and can answer any questions you may have about what it is like living here. Just know you will get biased answers – because it is clear that I love it here and don’t see why anyone would want to move!

Why should you Eat Local Now? Because Local, Sustainably Grown Food…Affects Climate Change Positively

I’ve been producing a video series in support of an upcoming dinner event that promotes local, sustainable grown food within 100 miles of where I live. The nonprofit is called Eat Local Now! (yes the ! is part of the name) and I took on the social media marketing for the event, sort of a new thing for this group. They already had a Facebook page but they weren’t on Twitter or YouTube yet.

Here are the videos I have put out so far – and there will be more to come between now and the end of the month. I am addressing the Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Eat Local Now! They have a very informative handout with the entire list, but I viewed it as a video opportunity and we have found some great folks to participate. It helps educate the public, but also gives the participating farmers or organizations an opportunity to explain how they address the environmental issues we find ourselves facing today.

Here is today’s video, with Terri Glaberson of CoolMom.org. The others all have been put out in the last two weeks and are in reverse order. Wade Bennett of Rockridge Orchards was my first interview of the season and he is one of our favorite peeps. We’ve been out to the farm several times in the past 7 years and really enjoy talking to him.

Kittens on a plane

Well, not exactly – but maybe this is like Snakes On a Plane – our very own kitten horror film. (NOte: this is off topic for this blog but too good to not share).

We’ve been busy this summer, and this is one of the things we have been occupying ourselves with. These kittens arrived in our home when they were a day old (on August 9th), with an orphan we snuck in the next day.

You can’t see the kittens very well in this video, but you can see tons of great pics and all of our videos on the Facebook fan page we have set up called Kitty Cornered (haha).

Real Estate Outlook: Consumer Confidence

I hope you all enjoyed a nice holiday weekend. As we head into fall – and even though we can’t quite face that since in the Northwest we didn’t get much of a summer (winter spring and summer were just one long Spring) – I find myself doing more social media volunteer work. And I do a lot of posts on Facebook on numerous pages I admin. I won’t be abandoning my blog but you will just have to check my Facebook posts for enriched and timely information.

Here is an outlook update from Realty Times.

After a few weeks in August where the economic and housing outlooks have been a little sobering – even grim – the numbers at the beginning of September are looking increasingly positive.
