  • Find Your Close Community in Pickett Street’s Hometown Bothell

    October 25, 2019 /
    Pickett Street Properties Team /

    I’m in love with the latest listing from Pickett Street—a colonial-style, 3-bedroom, 2.25 bath home in Bothell. The home includes a living room with a wood fireplace, a rec room with a wet bar and skylights, a kitchen with a breakfast nook and cedar-lined ceiling, and a fenced backyard with a firepit. This space looks like it would make for the coziest fall and winter parties.  The home’s surrounding area of Bothell isn’t too shabby, either, and it also happens to be Pickett Street’s hometown. First, before someone else snatches it up, get in touch with Jesse Moore at Pickett Street (425.502.5397) for more information about this listing. Then, see below for more details about the neighborhood. The Listing This property is incredibly centrally-located. It’s easy walk away from several schools, including Bothell High School and Red Door Montessori. Not only that, but the property is walking distance from the Bothell library, Sammamish River Park, and the highly-rated tiki bar McMenamins North Shore Lagoon at the Anderson School Hotel.  Area Vibes With the Northshore District’s stellar schools (ranked eleventh in the state) and a welcoming, safe community, Niche rates Bothell as one of the best Seattle suburbs.

  • Ansley Clark: the Pickett Street Blogger

    Ansley Clark: the Pickett Street Blogger   Intro by Mo:  I have been asked several times if the content in the blogs are stories about me, or from my life. I smile, shake my head and tip my hat towards Boulder, CO as a thank you to Ansley for helping to create content for our company that is REAL, authentic and accessible. One of the many things that Jesse and I agree upon and are equally obsessed with is good writing and QUALITY over QUANTITY. He and I both enjoy writing, thought provoking conversation and content for our clients and audience that is enjoyable.    I met Ansley through her brothers- Hunter and Ian. Hunter Clark was our intern during the summer of 2015. When Hunter left we hired his brother, Ian, as our blog writer. Then when Ian decided to go back to school- he referred us to his sister. And thus, the story continues...   I love that we've had the opportunity to work with practically the entire Clark family. When we stumbled quite pleasantly across Hunter I knew we'd hit a gold mine- I didn't realize it would come to benefit us and our clients for years.   I asked Ansley to introduce herself again to you this week- please comment…Read more

  • What Empty Nester Investors Should Know About House Hacks

    October 14, 2019 /

    One of Pickett Street’s many specialties is helping buyers find “house hacks” to significantly increase the return on real estate investments. "House hacks" include single-family residential homes with in-law or mother-in-law apartments (MIL) or other additional dwelling units, either attached to or detached from the house (ADU or DADU). For example, a split-level home with a separate entrance and kitchen in the basement allows homeowners to rent this space for extra income. Or, a buyer might invest in a duplex so that they can live in one of the units and rent out the other unit to cover their mortgage. According to Pickett Street’s Jesse Moore, house hacks are one of the smartest investments for empty nesters who are moving toward retirement. Empty nesters who are considering downsizing can buy "house hacks" to earn passive income through their extra space. Then, this extra income can go toward dreamy post-retirement activities like finally making that Hawaii trip happen. Pickett Street recently helped Director of Operations Margaret Smith’s parents find the right empty nester investment house hack—a rambler without stairs, which is a smart buy for empty nesters, and with a detached ADU. Margaret’s parents currently rent out this ADU. Not only…Read more

  • Live Off the Beaten Path in Snohomish, Washington

    Live Off the Beaten Path in Snohomish, Washington After years of living in cities, I have finally accepted that the thrill of tall buildings and clubs followed by a full meal at a restaurant at 3am has maybe faded. Perhaps this is what it means to get older. (Also I threw my back out last week, so perhaps that is what it means to get older.) In short, my husband and I are looking to move back home to Washington from Colorado next year. We want to live in the greater Seattle area, but somewhere quieter and closer to nature than Seattle itself. Of our options, Snohomish is looking pretty good. One of Washington State’s tucked away, funky gems, this rural farming community sits between the Puget Sound and the Cascade Range, about 45 minutes northeast of downtown Seattle.  If you’re interested in properties in this area, check out Pickett Street’s listings. Even better, get in touch with the team to chat all things real estate at or (425) 502-5397. Area Vibes Budget Travel recently voted it “one of the coolest small towns in America.” Plus, we recently ranked Snohomish as one of the best Seattle suburbs for outdoor…Read more
