Seattle City Council preparing to regulate Vacation Rentals

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 18:40:10 +0000

It’s no big surprise that the Seattle City Council has been preparing to set regulations on vacation rentals, such as homes you find on AirBnb or Home Away/VRBO.  Typically, vacation rentals allow home owners to rent out all or a portion of a home for short periods of time. Vacation rentals have become very popular […]

Moving to Seattle from the East Coast

Tue, 22 Dec 2015 04:26:31 +0000

Everyone who is buying a home comes to the marketplace with some preconceptions as to how things will proceed. If someone is selling a house in the area and buying a different house in the same area, there are not as many surprises that cause a lot of confusion. If someone is moving here from […]

Is Quill Realty the Only non-MLS Broker in Seattle?

Thu, 01 Oct 2015 18:02:13 +0000

Updated 9/13: Quill Realty is now Added Equity Real Estate – but everything else is as true today as when I wrote it! I am loving life at the forefront of change in the real estate industry. My firm Quill Realty left the Northwest Multiple Listing Service on July 1. Since then, we’ve picked up some […]

The Future of Real Estate? It Arrived Today

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 16:04:25 +0000

I could not be prouder today. Quill’s first Single Broker Listing is live and looks great! On the Quill Blog, on Zillow, on Redfin – heck, it looks great EVERYWHERE!! By my estimation, this is what the future of real estate will look like: One broker marketing a property directly to buyers via multiple channels, without […]

Why I am Withdrawing from the Multiple Listing Service to Offer Single Broker Listings

Tue, 19 May 2015 15:41:19 +0000

Today, my real estate firm Quill Realty is announcing its imminent withdrawal from the Northwest Multiple Listing Service [Quill Press Release 5/19/15]. We have some current inventory we need to clear. But by July 1, and likely sooner, Quill will withdraw from the NWMLS. Why? Because that is where the future of real estate lies. For […]

Zillow Talk: The New Rules of Real Estate, by Spencer Rascoff and Stan Humphries Reviewed by Craig Blackmon This book by Zillow’s CEO and Chief Economist, respectively, is a wonderful advertisement for Zillow.

Multiple Offer Situation versus Bidding War: What are they, and why do they happen?

Sat, 11 Apr 2015 02:32:34 +0000

Ardell recently posted on this subject. She noted there really isn’t that much out there about this now-common aspect of buying or selling a home (common, that is, for MLS-listed homes, you can avoid the frenzy by looking for homes on MLS alternatives). She and I then engaged in some typically spirited discourse, which in turn […]

Seller Will Review Offers on Monday…

Sat, 07 Mar 2015 21:37:34 +0000

A seller setting a time in the future when they will review all offers at the same time has become common enough to warrant a blog post explaining the general pros and cons and procedure for this type of listing instruction. I just did a spot check of new listings in Kirkland 98033 and a […]

Best Place To Live – Testing Your Parameters

Tue, 03 Feb 2015 20:08:56 +0000

Seattle Area – Choosing Best Place to Live. I recently received a request to write a new post on this topic. Even I find most of the articles I have read on this topic to be very confusing. Like this one that mixes a few “Really?!?” with the obvious best places. Or this one that […]

What is an Alternative Brokerage? Who is an Alternative Real Estate Agent?

Fri, 30 Jan 2015 01:18:37 +0000

One of the great challenges of being on the “bleeding edge” of change in any industry is identifying the words to be used in discussing the new model. The real estate industry is, at more than a century old, steeped in history and culture. So it’s even more of a challenge to create a dialog that accurately captures […]
