"Wow, Wow, Wow"
These 3 words became a mantra uttered countless times during a recent 6-month housing journey with our clients, Tim and Kim Briggs.
Was it the stars aligning perfectly or something else?

Over the past year, a big reason we hear from our clients about why they want to move is to "down-size" or "right-size" to find a home that fits their current life stage.

Oftentimes, moving homes is motivated by big life events. We work with our clients to incorporate this reality with their hopes and dreams.

For the Briggs', we've had a 25-year working relationship which began with their starter home and then onto their family home, both in the Sammamish area. Along the way, they also purchased a vacation home in the charming Seabrook community near the Pacific Ocean.

For their third stop with us on the housing journey, we helped them reconfigure their real estate portfolio and land their WOW dream home. A waterfront property in the local islands that we found "off market" due to our numerous real estate connections.

What's the key to aligning the stars and elicit a wow, wow, wow result?
First, we talk with you to understand what you want to do; second, we prepare your home for sale and third, we coordinate the details of the transaction to ensure a smooth ride.

Are you considering a move to rightsize with your current or next life stage? We would love to talk to you about the process to make your next transition as smooth as possible.

At every step of the way, we provide personalized guidance and support, leveraging our expertise to make a complex process positive and organized for you, as our clients.

Regardless of where you are in your home journey,
read on for more insights and relevant home information.
