  • 3 Design Trends to Rejuvenate Your Home This Spring

    May 24, 2019 /

    According to author Leo Tolstoy, “spring is the time of plans and projects.” And so, every spring, I fight the urge to Marie-Kondo my entire home to the extreme—giving away all furniture, books, clothes, and knick-knacks in exchange for a more spacious fresh start. My husband usually quietly follows my tornado path around the house, taking rather critical things like our TV out of my give-away boxes and placing them back where they belong. Luckily, there are many easier and less extreme ways to breathe fresh air into your home. Rather than getting rid of everything, for example, you might paint your kitchen walls a splashy color, or indulge in some new houseplants. Below is our guide to the hottest 2019 home design trends to help you revive your home this spring. 1. Living coral and other bold colors The color and design firm Pantone declared “living coral” to be the official color for 2019. This is good news, because this color is absolutely joyful. The Spruce offers some pretty options for incorporating this rosy shade into your home, from painting the walls to including a few simple pops of color with accent pillows. Pantone’s spring/summer 2019 color trends are…Read more

    Who needs to travel when your home state was recently ranked the best state in the country?

    Just in time for spring gardens and lawns, one of Pickett Street’s latest listings features a cozy Riverside Everett home with an outdoor space full of potential. This cash-only, two-bedroom, one-bath listing also has a wood stove to warm the main living space, the sweetest loft, and hardwood floors. About a 45 minute drive from downtown Seattle, Everett sits on the Puget Sound in Snohomish County. The city is currently experiencing exciting renovations—Everett recently approved a development plan for a mixed-use waterfront on the site of a former landfill. This waterfront will include a specialty grocery store, a movie theater, and condo and multi-family home units, as well as a large park, trails, and a wetland restoration. As one resident commented, “It has been a bit of a secret that the city has been improving and getting way cooler and part of me wishes it had stayed that way to keep it from getting crowded but the cat is out of the bag.” Get in touch with Pickett Street if you’re interested in this new listing, or in buying or selling other properties in Everett (425-502-5397 or info@pickettstreet.com).

  • Mixing Friends and Business: Why It’s Actually a Good Idea

    May 6, 2019 /
    Pickett Street Properties Team /

    Contrary to what others may think, I’m a big fan of mixing friends and business. When I got married last year, one of my best friends, who is a professional wedding photographer, took our photos. The best part of this arrangement was how comfortable I felt with her as she snapped pictures all day. She also provided extra love and reassurance whenever the day became a tiny bit—or, let’s be honest, very—stressful. (And she still enjoyed dancing and champagne at the end of the night!)  In the real estate business, family and friends of real estate professionals often hire an outside realtor rather than their loved one. Essentially, they’re afraid that anything going wrong during the real estate transaction will damage their personal relationship.  Margaret Smith comments that this situation has happened several times for Pickett Street. “It’s so hard to watch,” she says, “because most of the time they end up picking some random person they met at an open house—and this agent doesn't have a great track record.”  These days, it’s easy for our lives to feel devoid of real connection—Amazon can deliver practically anything to your home in two days, and online communication replaces many face-to-face experiences. …Read more
