Providence Point- Issaquah, Wa USA

4071 223rd Place SE Unit #2021, Issaquah, WA 98029

MLS #: 1420512

 These amazing clients were placed in my care by one of my most adored co-agents, Mischa Lorraine, of Golden Gate Sothebys International Realty, located in Berkeley, California. 

What an honor it is to be trusted to assist this special couple with the big decision to downsize after living nearly 30 years in their family home. I interviewed them and we had many pleasant and fun filled conversations, encouraging them to dream about what their perfect new life might offer them. They gave me a wish list and within just a few short weeks, I found the home of thier dreams in an active adult community! They could not be happier!

I am so honored to have been trusted by a respected colleague to assist their treasured clients with such a huge life changing event. These clients are truely amazing people and I wish them all of the fun and bliss this new life chapter will create for them!

Baker Condominiums –  Point Ruston, Wa USA

4961 Main St. Unit #803, Tacoma, Wa 98407

Procured at: $$991,000 USA   

 MLS# -1250073

This experience is one for the record! 

I was contacted directly by a gentleman out of Maine, USA. He found me by doing a lot of research online. He told me that he and his wife had visited the West Coast many times and had fallen in love with it. They were planning this move several years ahead to relocate here upon retiring. He wondered if I would be willing to help him find a property, that he was not sure would actually exist. I asked him for a list of his dream criteria.

They were:

 – A condominium located in a walking community with a lot of activites nearby

 – Waterfront but not too loud

 – A view of Mount Rainier

 – Not too far from the airport

 – High rental income rate

 – And here was the final clincher…. Located in the path of migrating whales so that he could view them from his balcony.

That was a tall order. I was absolutely game for the task. 

My specialty, is assisting clients in any community they want to live in, both locally and internationally. I do this through study and research, which allows me to become an expert anywhere in the world.

Together, my client and I gathered a lot of data about whale migration, proximity to the areas he wanted, rent revenues and walking districts. We did this together for many months. After a time, we narrowed down the search to specific areas that met most or all of that criteria. 

He flew out a few times, to view specific listings I had selected for him. After two visits, we found “the one”. The Baker Condominiums in Point Ruston! He was absolutely in love! It met every single point on his criteria list, even the whales! He flew out his wife for the next visit, and she too fell in love. I helped them make an offer, and secured the property for them at asking price.

The following trip I had the pleasure of also meeting thier daughter, and we all had lunch in the village nearby. It was so satisfying and heartwarming for me to see all of them so happy about this new life chapter! It was truely one of the most memorable experiences I have had in my career. I am looking forward to the day when they become my neighbor, so we can visit over lunch again. 

All the best to you and your family!

Enjoy the view!

Sincerely.

  University District- Boarding House     

Sold: $1,695,000

This propery has a long history and a great story. This property happens to be one of the very first properties I ever contracted early in my career. The clients were savvy real estate investors and world travelers who were long standing clients of one of our Califoria Sotheby’s International Offices, looking for investment opportunities in Washington State. I was put in charge of their interests and did my research based on their criteria. On one of thier first visits to our State to look at properties, we ran across this one off-market. I successfully negotiated the sale for them, and they have owned and operated it ever since as a very successful addition to their real estate portfolio. 

We have become friends over these long years and stay in touch regularly. They are even the proud parents to one of my Boston Terrier puppies, perfectly named Teddi Spaghetti. I absolutely adore this family, they are such amazing and fun people, who are full of life. 

Recently, via referral, working with Niko Raptis of Realogics Sothebys International Realty and Dave Poletti, of Poletti nd Associates, who had been managing the rental for many years, it was successfully sold in 1 day for asking price. My clients were elated! 

Congratulations on this successful sale!

Thank you both for your years of loyalty and friendship!

Bretton Wood- Bellevue, Wa USA

824 179th Ct NE, Bellevue, WA 98008

MLS#: 1390990

Sold: $887,500

Congratulatons to this fun family! A referral from a dear friend, who happen to be two of her closest friends, I was honored to be selected to help them downsize to their new home. 

They had long been searching for a property near their dear friends home and this one caught their eye. I was able to assist them in successfully winning the bid for BELOW asking price, and they even paid BELOW appraised value. That means, they essentially had equity in this new home, from day one.  That is a rare occcurrance in our hot local market to be sure. 

With a breathtaking view of Lake Sammamish and walking distance to their best pals house, they could not have been more pleased. I was so proud to have this opportunity to help them acheive their dream. 

Many years of happiiness to both of you and thank you for trusting me to assist you!!

COMMERCIAL

The Clover Building- Bellevue, Wa USA

This was a very fun transaction. I was contacted by a private company who hadd been searching for a commercial lease, who had found me by researching online for expert agents in this area. Their corporate office found my experience to be top notch and just what they were looking for. They required a very specific list of criteria: size, speciffic layout and ameneties, and proximity location to a large local company. All within a very tight timeline. 

I was able to create a tour of acceptable properties within days and took their team on tour. They had not experienced looking at commercial spaces before, so I was able to educcate them on the steps, and hep them visualize what thier new offices would loo lie, after construction was complete of the empty shell we were viewing. It was reassuring to them to know they had all their bases covered there. After looking at several locations, we found just the right fit. I was able to negotiate terms for them that included several months of free rent and all TI they wanted payed for by the landlord. They were so very pleased and ever so grateful. 

I really enjoyed working with this amazing company, learning more about what they do and sincerely honored to meet their team of managing members. It was a lot of fun and I look forward to seeing the finished space!

All the best in your expansion efforts!

I wish you and your company all the success and prosperity!

 Congratulations to my amazing investor client, on this successful sale. I was able to assist him with procuring this property, at the very last minute on a Thursday late evening. It closed the following Wednesday, in just 4 business days from start to finish!
It is a solid investment opportunity for him to either flip, re-build, or re-sell to another builder.
Either way, a win for him. He was so pleased.
A record sale!
A repeat client. who I adore working with and always makes my job a lot of fun, thanks Mr. G!

JUST PURCHASED

– Coast to Coast –

My clients were moving from Boston to Seattle. With a new baby shortly on the way, and another young one in tow, this move was a big event. They needed somewhere to land, a temporary place, and in short order, to start looking for a home to buy. I found them the perfect short term rental, fully furnished, in a beautiful neighborhood in Seattle. Negotiated the rental price down to fit their budget, and ensured it was ready and warm, with lights on, upon their arrival. Comfortable and settled,we then set out on the new home search. I was able to find them their dream home, in their perfect neighborhood, West Seattle. Even with fierce competition, we won the bid on that one, and it closed without a hitch. They could not have been more happy.

 Happy in West Seattle

I love seeing those happy smiles. The pleasure was all mine. 

 

– Whale watching from Maine –

A client lives in Maine with his lovely wife. Their daughter goes to school in Washington, They visit, they fall in love with the beauty of the Puget Sound. They start to dream about retiring here, and create their idea of a what that looks like to them. Their requirement: A direct view of Mt. Rainier, water view, specifically in the path of migrating whales. I was up for the challenge. I searched with them remotely via email, text and face-time video live tours. Once we narrowed down the town they decided  they loved the best, we started a more aggressive search there. We looked for nearly 6 months together. Finally finding a few perfect choices, they flew in for a whirlwind on site tour. I was able to procure for them through man negotiations the exact property they dreamed of, with all their specifications. They are overjoyed! This one was so much fun! I love finding that needle in a haystack, or in this case the one perfect whale in the bay! 

Point Ruston Waterfront

Thank you for the fun tours, and I can not wait for you to enjoy your beautiful new home. 

 

 – Around the world –

Across the globe, in China, a client and her family were planning a move to our beautiful state. A huge move, and an enormous undertaking for a family, they called on me to help them. Not certain where they want to buy long term, they knew they would like to try a very specific area of Mercer Island. Although there are not many rentals that met their desires, I was able to help them search even though they were across the globe from me, via face time and live tours, email and text communications. I found them exactly what they were searching for. I negotiated with the agent, to ensure even their furry family pets could tag along during their stay, and secured the home for them before their deadline. I maintained the home for them, during their transition period, and ensured their home was warm and lights on when they arrived. They arrived tired, and jet-lagged but were comforted by the delights awaiting them in their new home. They were elated, relieved and so thankful. Such a fun family to work with.

Mercer Island Beuaty

I look forward to the search for their new forever home.

JUST SOLD

– A family estate –

 After finding me on google as a top agent, these clients called me for help. Their mother had recently passed and left them her lifelong home estate. The family had been calling around to agents, asking for advice on the best way to sell it. Being a residential home, they were given a lot of advice on how to list it on the market. Highest amount they were told, was near $550,000 in value. I politely disagreed with their previous advisers and asked them to let me research the property more thoroughly, before making any decisions on how to sell it. I did a little home work and realized the best use for the property was not in a residential home, but in a more commercial application. I needed to find them a buyer, who would benefit from acquiring that particular property. I was able to, within 3 days, find them multiple offers from local property owners nearby. The family was ecstatic, and accepted an offer. It closed on time without any problems for $905,000. Nearly double what they had been advised of before meeting me. This was an end of an era for the family, and a start of a new beginning as well.

Kirkland Estate

I was honored to be given the opportunity to assist your family. 

 

 – New Beginnings-

 A referral from a co-agent in our Montana Big Sky Sotheby’s office, I was called on for a favor of his long time friend. He had a very short timeline that he needed to meet, to sell his home he had owned for nearly 20 years. I met with him, listened to his needs, and he decided selling this off market was what he wanted me to do. Not many agents can do this, unless they have a large network or investors or builders. I have that network. I was able to procure multiple offers for him in just a few days. He accepted an offer, and was relieved to be moving on. I suggested he take a back up offer just in case, but it proved to be unnecessary it closed on time with no problems. It was exactly what he wanted, and he was so thankful for my help. It feels good to be able to deliver results exactly as they are asked of you. 

Kirkland, Washington

This one was a win. Best of luck in your new endeavors!

Sold at: $630,000
Congratulations to my amazing clients, the Vedder family, on this successful sale. At first my clients were skeptical about re-listing, after having listed this property once before with another agent, and having it fall through. I patiently walked them through their options. Once I re-listed it for them, it sold in 3 days, over asking price and closed on time with no issues. This is the magic that exceptional marketing, experience and skill can do for you.It is so important to use a realtor that has what it takes to make you a success and one that has access to international marketing to bring you the buyer.
Only Sotheby’s International Realty can give you that.
The proof is in the result. 
This one was hit out of the park. 
 
A note from Mr. Vedder:
“Well it is been a long strange journey,but the sale of our Woodinville house has finally closed. I cannot say enough about our listing agent Erin Harold of Sothebys in Redmond. She just flat worked her butt off, day and night for months on this. Could not have done it without her. If you are looking for a realtor that will go
the extra mile for you I highly recommend her.”
 
Thanks Mr. Vedder!
Thanks to both of you for trusting me to help you with your sale.
 It was my pleasure, sincerely.
I love my job!

CALLING ALL BUYERS AND SELLERS !!!

CALLING ALL BUYERS AND SELLERS !!!
Erin Harold Newsletter | December 4, 2017
A House for the Holidays 

 

Why It Makes Sense to Buy a Home at Year’s End

 
1. Less Competition – There may be fewer homes available, but there are also fewer home buyers and that equals less competition for you. 
 
2. Motivated Sellers – Combine motivated sellers with decreased competition and you have great leverage to get a better deal.
 
3. Lower Prices – December historically has lower home prices than any other month of the year.
 
4. Faster Closings – As a general rule, everyone involved in a holiday real estate transaction wants to complete the transaction before the end of the year.
 
5. Better Interest Rates – Interest rates are still near historical lows, so you may be surprised at the savings.
 
6. Motivated Agents –  Lower activity in the Winter housing market means that real estate agents are dealing with fewer clients and have more time to devote to you. 
 
7. Related Seasonal Sales –  Need new furniture or other items for your new home? Plenty of seasonal clearance sales will be available to help you apply your personal touch.
 
This article from MoneyTips.com, is a great example of why you should definitely buy a home this time of year. Follow the link below for the full article. 
 
A NOTE TO BUYERS:
 
 Make sure you have a strong agent with advanced education and exceptional negotiating experience to help you in your search for a new home.
As one of the top agents in our area, I will ensure you are a success in this competitive buyers market, every time.

HOME OWNERS: THE TIME TO SELL, IS NOW. 
 
2017 was, yet again, a strong seller’s market! Our real estate continues to increase in price, keeping the Seattle metropolitan and its surrounding areas at the top of our Nations real estate markets. Experts agree that the shortage of inventory continues to create this result. Looking forward to 2018, this trend has shown no signs of changing in that respect. This abundance of savvy buyers are still looking, there simply is not enough out there for them to  buy. 
 
How does that translate to you as a homeowner?
 
 Spring may still be peak home-shopping season, since most families want to move when the kids are out of school. Yet, it actually pays to list in the winter, when buyers tend to have more urgency: One study found that average sellers net more above asking price during the months of December, January, February, and March than they do from June through November, and homes listed in the Winter sold faster than those posted in the Spring.

 

That means:  Now is the time to sell your home!
Buyers want to buy it and you should absolutely take advantage of that demand.  
 
Not sure where you will go?
As a Sotheby’s International Realty agent, I can help you buy nearly everywhere in the world, not just locally. I will assist you with planning ahead, to ensure that new home transition is both smooth and effortless for you and your family.
 
 So, dream big and let’s make your dreams a realty together.
 Give me a call and I will provide you with a current market analysis of your home and help guide you down the path to success. 
 
 
Whether you are selling a single family home, or a commercial investment property,
I am your perfect agent.

Just Purchased 
 
West Seattle Charmer
7721 44th Ave SW, Seattle, Washington USA
Purchased at: $799,000 
 

A West Seattle charmer, this home has uninterrupted views of the entire Puget Sound. A beauty from entry to exit, this home was a perfect fit for my clients. I have worked with this family for years, and it was a pleasure finding them another perfect property for their collection. Savvy investors are my forte. I sincerely enjoy working with my investor clients to enhance and grow their portfolios. I am always proud to have their trust and enjoy helping them in their quest for success.

An enormous thank you to Christopher Sayre, at Chase Bank, for his exceptional work on this transaction. As well as the title team at First American Title and the closing team of Galvin Realty Law Group. Great team work is always appreciated.

Repeat business is always the result of exceptional work. This was no exception.

Just Sold 
 
Lochleven property
726 95th Ave NE, Bellevue, Washington USA
Sold at: $1,750,000 
 

This home sale was fantastic from start, to finish. I met this family after they had a failed attempt at listing their property for sale on the open market. They were frustrated and looking for alternative options. After spending quite some time listening to what they wanted to achieve, I was able to help them find the best solution to meet all of their needs. I assessed the property and recommended to them that their property may be better suited to an investor or builder, rather than a family looking for a home to live in.

They agreed this was the case and asked me to find them a buyer off-market. Because I work with so many builders and investors, I was able to find a buyer for this property within days at the price they were looking for and also allow them ample time and the funds necessary in advance, to find a new house to buy.

Thank you to the title and escrow teams at Chicago Title. A great job on this one, thank you.

All parties were happy and successful in this venture.
