On May 19th, we joined forces with Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty, Wipliance and OBOT Electric, Ferrari of Seattle, DeLille Cellars, Annette Dresser at J. Hilburn, Ferretti Yachts, AquaQuip, Greenbaum Home Furnishings to welcome scores of invited guests to our luxury waterfront estate on Mercer Island for the inaugural “LOL” (Luxury Outdoor Living) Event. The showcase of luxury brands highlighted the enviable lifestyles provided by market leaders in real estate, audio/visual, automobiles, wine, fashion, pools and spas, outdoor furnishings and others to ring in the summer season.
In a feature for the Seattle PI entitled “Historic palace hidden near Seattle,” Kirsten O’Brien highlights Chapel Lane Estate, our client’s stunning home in The Highlands. As O’Brien notes, “at first glance, it may seem like this home belongs in the English countryside rather than in the suburbs of Seattle. Take a closer look, however, and you’ll find that every detail — from its location down to its filigree moulding – is quite intentional.”
This week, our Mercer Island waterfront was featured on a modern homes blog on Sotheby’s International Realty as a market spotlight!
Home to some of the industry’s most prominent technological titans, Washington State’s “Silicon Forest” is ever-growing. “Techies” currently make up nearly 10% of Seattle’s workforce and as Dean Jones, Owner and CEO of Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty estimates, these workers represent a large share of employment migration that translates to increased housing demand from a demographic that makes an average of $130K annually. Thus it is no surprise that industry growth transcends economic impact and is found in the area’s luxury homes, which embody modern styles that incorporate technological innovation and milestones in “green” living.
