  • Real Estate Investing and Island Hopping in Edmonds

    February 22, 2019 /
    Pickett Street Properties Team /

    While Seattle and the state’s other cities certainly offer tech-savvy, cosmopolitan vibes, Washington State is also home to so many lovely little tucked-away corners. Ideally located on the Puget Sound in between Seattle and Everett, Edmonds is the perfect hub for island-hopping and commuting. This small town boasts incredible Puget Sound views, an artsy community, and easy access to several nearby tourist destinations. Consequently, Pickett Street’s newest listing in Edmonds holds so much potential. This 7-unit multi-family building offers you the opportunity to invest in real estate and create passive income in an optimal location.

    Pickett Street Properties is dedicated to serving the community and is highlighting businesses and community members that are dedicated to doing the same. In this highlight we are excited to share about Jered Burton, a Master Hairstylist in the Seattle area! Here’s his story:   It’s kind of funny actually- the story of beginning my career. So I was born in Northern MN in the 80’s. We didn’t have a lot of money and we lived in the middle of nowhere. Consequently, it was about a 45 minute bus ride to kindergarten... every day. I rode that bus with a few other kids, one of which was my cousin, Amber. She would often get on the school bus each morning and her mother would have French Braided pigtails into her hair. The thing was Amber had bangs, and her mom (my aunt) would manage to braid them back into the style so that her forehead was exposed and I didn’t like it. So for weeks I would take my water bottle out of my backpack and (with her permission) wet her bangs down and move them foreword over her forehead. Finally, one day I got home from school and my mom sat…Read more

  • Love in Seattle: 9 Ideas for Romance and Fun

    February 15, 2019 /

    Though Valentine’s Day was yesterday, it’s still, in my opinion, perfectly acceptable to celebrate and gorge on chocolate throughout the weekend. How are you celebrating love this week? I splurged on an $8 chew for my dog that he ate in approximately 30 seconds, passed out chocolates to my undergraduate students to soften the fact that their papers are due next week, and scooped up all the dog poop in the yard so that my husband didn’t have to—a sign of true love. If you’re still looking for some good ideas for going out in Seattle with your love, your loves, or yourself, read on for the best romantic and fun spots. For Adults: 1. Canon I’ll start with my husband and I’s personal favorite. In 2014, this bar won a spot on the list of best cocktail bars in the world. In 2017, Canon won another prestigious award for the best spirits collection in the world. Despite all of these fancy awards, however, the bar maintains a down-to-earth, cozy vibe with dim lighting and reasonable cocktail prices. Get there early—there’s almost always a wait to squeeze into this small, intimate space. 2. The Octopus Bar With nearly 200 Yelp…Read more

  • Snowmageddon: Last Minute Tips For A Snug Home This Weekend

    February 8, 2019 /
    Pickett Street Properties Team /

    As I sit here writing this from Colorado, I can’t help but laugh bitterly as I read about the winter snow storm hitting the Seattle area this weekend.   Nearly a foot of snow also dumped on Denver this past week. And because I am still a Washingtonian at heart, I eagerly checked my phone approximately once every five minutes to see if the campuses where I teach had issued any campus closures.   But no—as soon as it began to snow, Colorado’s battalion of snowplows came out in full force and merrily and efficiently cleared the streets as soon as a mere half inch had gathered. “Campus will remain open today!” the University of Colorado tweeted. “More snow and below-freezing temps in the forecast, so bundle up!”   Bundle up, indeed. I can’t help feeling envious of my loved ones in the Seattle area right now as I watch the school closure alerts rolling in. (Here’s The Seattle Times’ list of closures and cancellations.) “How’s the snow storm coming?” I texted my mom earlier this morning. “Nothing yet!” she replied. “But the grocery store yesterday was as busy as at Christmas! SO EXCITED.”   However, despite my envy at…Read more

  • Community Highlights: Lowrider Baking Company

    Pickett Street Properties is dedicated to serving the community and is highlighting businesses and community members that are dedicated to doing the same. In this highlight we are excited to share about Lowrider Baking Company out of Seattle, WA. Here is Emily's story: I was a pastry chef before starting Lowrider and it has been my childhood dream to own my own bakery. I started Lowrider in May 2017 and up until October 2018, we have just done farmer's markets, pop-ups, catering, and wholesale. We opened the trailer in October 2018, which has been great because we can now be open year-round. I have always been a very self-motivated person, but when I do look for inspiration I love to watch Chef's Table on Netflix or listen to How I Built This on NPR. Baking is my passion and cookies are my favorite baked treat to eat so starting a cookie shop made sense. I love creating new flavors and recipes. My mission is to make the best cookies in the city. My favorite quote is: "People who love to eat are always the best people." -Julia Child Lowrider Baking Company is open on Saturday 11am-6pm and Sunday 11am-4pm. Go check…Read more

  • Finely Clicked: Margaret and Jesse’s Business-Savvy Podcast

    February 1, 2019 /

    Forget Serial, forget This American Life and Radiolab—have you listened to Jesse Moore and Margaret Smith’s new podcast? Available on Spotify, iTunes, SoundCloud, and Podbean, Finely Clicked covers everything from business and real estate to leadership and personal development to vacations, primordial sludge, ASMR, and whiskey. Margaret and Jesse are funny, honest, and incredibly insightful. Last night on my drive home, I listened to their most recent episode on time. As a university instructor and freelancer, I often struggle with time. Unlike some 9 to 5 positions, my jobs involve strange hours; typically, there are 2 to 6 hours each day when I need to show up at specific times to teach various classes and meetings. When the rest of the work happens—the lesson planning, emailing, researching, writing, grading—is entirely up to me, which means I regularly work evenings and weekends. I’ve also been recently discussing the importance of community and connection, which this episode discusses, with my college classes—according to a recent Harvard study, investing time in healthy relationships actually helps you live longer! As such, my favorite part about this episode was the way it shows how time relates to human connection, an idea that plays such a…Read more
