  • Why a Seattle-Area Home Is the Healthiest Investment

    March 22, 2019 /
    Pickett Street Properties Team /

    When it comes to the healthiest cities in the U.S., WalletHub’s 2019 survey ranks Seattle as second. This high ranking results from the city’s expansive green spaces, high quality food, levels of physical activity, and health care system. Seattle is also the most educated city in the U.S; around 63 percent of city residents age 25 and older have a four-year college degree. In addition to WalletHub, Fabric, a life insurance company, ranks both Bellevue and Seattle as two of the top 15 healthiest cities in the country. This survey takes into account sleep, mental health, physical health, health insurance coverage, smoking and drinking rates, and obesity levels. Seattle-area residents know that this healthy ranking also comes from the fresh salty air, the gorgeous views, and the second best coffee in the country. So, are you ready to buy a home in the Puget Sound area? If so, Pickett Street is ready to support you ( or 425-502-5397). Their next free home buyers class on April 6th will educate you on the home buying process from start to finish.

    Every year, Pickett Street’s Admin Department (aka Command Central) organize the PNW Operations Retreat. This 3 day retreat focuses on building community and helping fellow admin professionals realize their value and full potential, in order to disrupt the real estate industry in positive ways. This year’s retreat, happening April 4-7, is particularly special. Three major speakers will share their stories: Gary John Bishop, author of Unfuck Yourself, Tyler Schmitt, Executive Assistant to entrepreneur, author, speaker, and internet personality Gary Vaynerchuk, and En-may Mangels, Strategic Intuitive Advisor. If you’re interested in the retreat, reach out to Margaret at #206-228-5067 or Also, I was able to chat more about this event with Pickett Street’s Director of Operations Margaret Smith and Team Admin, Sarah Troske. Here’s what they had to say. 1.    Okay—I've been hearing a lot of hype about this Operations Retreat! What is it? Who's it for? Margaret: My goal with this retreat is to show admin just how powerful they can be through persistence, hard work, and networking. Many admin are afraid of talking to their team leaders/bosses about what they want or think they deserve. Thus, much of this retreat is about personal development.  By working on ourselves…Read more

  • Seattle Real Estate Forecast: Spring 2019

    March 12, 2019 /

    I don’t want to jinx it. But, with this week’s forecast of warmer temperatures looking—dare I say —downright cheery and spring-like, the real estate market is gearing up for its traditionally busier season. However, while the Seattle area was home to a hot real estate market between about 2016 and the early part of 2018, this frenzied activity has now cooled and stabilized somewhat. Here’s what you need to know about the area’s real estate market for spring 2019. 1. Home prices dropped... In February, Seattle’s home prices dropped to the lowest point in two years, resulting in prices that were around $116,000 less than last spring’s prices. Mike Rosenberg of the Seattle Times reported that, since the peak of the hot housing market in spring 2018, home prices “dropped a total of 16 percent in the last eight months.” 2. Then home prices bounced back up... ...just when you think you’ve got it figured out! Over the past several weeks, prices have risen again. One can almost hear the Seattle real estate market reveling in its unpredictability and cackling at all the eager home buyers who have been waiting for prices to drop. Prices rose around $45,000, which Rosenberg…Read more

  • Community Highlights: Chelsea Rose

    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 Chelsea Rose, Owner of Wildwood Yoga Studio! Here’s her story:   I began my practice of yoga when I was 16. I was just getting better from my right kidney mysteriously shutting down, planting me in Children's hospital. I became captivated with how the body functions. I was confident that if my skin can heal after a serious cut, I could create a healing environment for my insides. I became enthralled by the mind and body connection. Phantom limbs and how you can itch the air where the limb was and the need to itch will stop. Nuero linguistic programming and how our thoughts create our reactions and the subconscious ultimately controls us. Yoga always seemed to creep up as a healing, enlightening practice. Helping the mind and body become more unified. So I gave it a shot. It was challenging however I felt better after each class I took. I realized when situations in life got uncomfortable I would take deep breathes, which I learned in yoga class.…Read more

  • Let There Be Light: Spring Home Design in Seattle

    March 1, 2019 /

    Happy March 1st! The quality of light is changing—it’s clearer and less grey now, perhaps—and the days stretch longer. Can anyone else feel the slow shift? At this point in the winter, I always long for spring’s lighter days. This season also, of course, signals cleaning and renewing—whether this means letting go of your entire home and entering the market to buy a new one, renovating your current spot, or simply (or not so simply) Marie Kondo-ing your wardrobe. With the cozy grey weather, Pacific Northwest homes often center around maximizing light. According to Neil Kelly interior designer Diane Foreman, the area’s gray skies and evergreens results in Northwest light that “tends to bring out the green and blue tones in a color.” To balance this, she uses “softer, warmer whites and grays in cabinetry and wall colors.” To celebrate the coming spring, let’s dive into some house design joy, shall we? I’ve assembled a few of dreamy home renovations that maximize natural light. 1. Urban Minimalism in Queen Anne With the cozy grey weather, Pacific Northwest homes often center around maximizing light. This property in Queen Anne is no exception—designer Mary Burgess updated the dark original space to one…Read more
