  • Operation: Tungsten Light and Three Other Uplifting Resources

    April 20, 2020 /
    Pickett Street Properties Team /

    How is everyone feeling? This week, I read that after World War II, researcher Anna Freud discovered the children left behind in London during the war to endure the bombings with their families actually suffered less trauma than the children who were sent away to the country. Freud concluded that “the physical injury is often not the harshest part of trauma; it’s the breakdown of relationships during and after.” If you’re in need of an uplifting boost of connection and community during the COVID-19 quarantine, Pickett Street’s Margaret Smith has you covered. Margaret recently started Operation: Tungsten Light with her friends and colleagues Ande Dunn and Sarah Troske. According to Margaret, she started the group because she “realized very quickly that fear and anxiety were creeping in” for her loved ones. Read more about Margaret’s Tungsten Light, as well as other positive online resources for this tough time. Additionally, if you are feeling anxious about real estate and would like to know more about buying or selling your home right now, get in touch with Pickett Street at (425) 502-5397 or Operation: Tungsten Light Tungsten Light’s purpose is to spread light, love and positivity.

  • “I Turned the Horses Out Again Tonight”

    April 20, 2020 /
    Pickett Street Properties Team /

    “I turned the horses out again tonight." By Jesse D. Moore This was the first and last line my father wrote in an article for New York Times Magazine, entitled “Bad Days at ‘Big Dry’” (Aug 14, 1988). He started and ended the article with the same line, a literary device that illustrated the redundancy of the days we lived in during the drought of 1988. Growing up on a cattle ranch in Montana, we would corral the horses in the morning after their feeding. If we didn’t have use for them, we would turn them out. Turning the horses out then was emblematic of not having enough work. That drought never seemed to end, though we woke with a daily hope that things would change for the better.  12 years ago my ex-wife was pregnant with our second child. I was finishing my third year in real estate, having better than average success in a new business. Our goal was to have my business support our family, so that when David was born, Kami could be a stay-at-home mother to our two kids. I was 30 years old and the real estate market was in a steady slide downward.…Read more

  • Keep Calm and Carry On: 5 Ways to Stay Connected

    Keep Calm and Carry On: 5 Ways to Stay Connected How is everyone doing? With recent COVID-19-related changes to businesses, schools, and—well—basically most other aspects of daily life, it’s been an intense few weeks.  One thing I’ve been keeping in mind is that, regardless of whether or not I’m worried about my own health, social distancing is important right now. This practice keeps the most vulnerable members of my community, such as immunocompromised folks or seniors, safe. As UC San Francisco epidemiologist Jeff Martin says, “Social distancing now is one of the greatest calls for altruism.” So, how to manage these strange, unprecedented times? First, if you’re worried about buying or selling a home right now, I promise you will feel better after chatting with the Pickett Street team’s resourceful, creative, and whip-smart real estate experts ((425) 502-5397 or Let these professionals do the tough work for you. Next, you might keep in mind that we are all in this together. One thing that’s been helping me when I feel anxious about the uncertainty is that so many people feel the same anxiety right now. I’m not alone, and neither are you. Finally, check out this list of ideas…Read more

  • Get Wild: 4 Ways to Rewild Your Outdoor Space

    March 16, 2020 /
    Pickett Street Properties Team /

    Get Wild: 4 Ways to Rewild Your Outdoor Space Along with kombucha and succulent terrariums, one of the latest trends (old trends) in home design is rewilding. “Rewilding” means allowing your yard and the rest of your land to grow naturally, replacing imported plants with native species, and generally encouraging wildlife to thrive. Not only does this practice create beautiful outdoor spaces, it’s also good for the environment. If you’re curious, check out this interview with novelist Jeff Vandermeer, in which he talks about how he and his wife “rewilded” their yard. Rewilding doesn’t have to involve a major re-haul of your property’s exterior. As Vandermeer says, “You can always do something. Even a few potted plants that your local nursery says are good for butterflies or birds can be of use. Even a small bird feeder can be of use, too.” You can rewild your yard no matter the size. And luckily, the Pacific Northwest hosts some of the lushest, most diverse wildlife in the world. If you’d like to find the kind of home where you can practice rewilding your property, or if you’re interested in other real estate, let Pickett Street know—call or email at (425) 502-5397…Read more
