  • Jesse Moore & Lisa Bender: 5-Star Real Estate Agents indeed!

    December 10, 2008 /

    We think a lot of ourselves here at Pickett Street, but it's always nice when others validate it in the form of an award or designation! It's with great pleasure that I announce that two members of the Pickett Street team have been selected by Seattle Magazine as 5-Star Real Estate Agents, Best in Client Satisfaction for 2008. My business partner, Jesse D. Moore, and our fellow associate, Lisa Bender, have both been selected among this year's honorees. What exactly does this mean? Seattle Magazine says it best: Experts say that at least 90 percent of homebuyers rely on real estate agents for advice and guidance. But with more than 14,000 Seattle residents holding real estate licenses, how do you find someone who knows the market, represents your interests and operates with an emphasis on integrity and service? Seattle magazine can help. For the fifth year, the magazine has formed a partnership with Crescendo Business Services, an independent research firm, to find out which real estate agents have most consistently wowed their clients. This past May, Crescendo surveyed by mail and phone, 29,000 Seattle area residents who had recently purchased homes. An additional 250 surveys were sent to mortgage and…Read more

  • Summer Secrets

    We all know the old saying, "All work and no play... " in which Jack becomes a dull boy for keeping his nose to the grindstone. Well, Jack and I have had too much in common lately, and it has prompted me to reminisce on summers past, when I've had the luxury of exploring some of our areas scenic escapes. As I've spent a little time reviewing, I've realized with some surprise, that I've amassed a pretty fair travelogue, and since I'm not likely to get back to many of them any time soon, the decent thing to do would be to spread the wealth to those enterprising folks with a little more time on their hands. Most of my favorite trips have involved a few days in the woods with a backpack, and a flyrod, so that's going to be the slant of this post. The majority of my travels have been in the North and Central Cascades- starting in college with short weekend trips around the Bellingham area to Pine & Cedar Lakes- small, twin lakes packed with brown and rainbow trout, and populated by clouds of voracious mosquitoes. The hike in is, while not overly long at…Read more

  • Give Me Liberty!

    When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary to take up arms, then someday a government official will declare a holiday...  and we will blow up stuff to celebrate! So, this is how we spent our 4th of July, 2008 holiday- with a few friends from college, celebrating in a tradition that is now 20 years old; to eat until we explode, and then piece together sufficient gunpowder to make the biggest blast in the neighborhood. If that's not the American Way, I don't know what is! The piece you're about to see includes a 16' tall steel sculpture, dubbed 'Lady Liberty'. She was constructed several years ago for the express purpose of serving as an explosives scaffold. She is demurely wrapped in 70,000 or so firecrackers, with spinners placed strategically at her breasts and navel, and holds a mortar box of another dozen rounds. Beside her, at stage right, is a dizzying testament to the wonders of gunpowder & saltpeter, including mortars, Saturn Missiles, and who knows what. This link will take you to the video- it's about 12 minutes long, and needs a minute or so to load, so you've been warned! independence-day-2008-web. Kick back, crank…Read more

  • Take a Flyer!

    Several months ago I promised video of The PickettStreet R/C truck in action. Well, here it is! Notice that for most of the stunts shown here, the truck is wearing an alternate body. This is due to a hotly debated, but ultimately unsuccessful attempt to persuade my 6 year old daughter that I painted the 'special' body for people to see- she didn't care, and insisted that: "The Flames are my favorite" I have yet to find a suitable argument for that logic. You'll also note that while I was doing the majority of the filming, the wild stunts are courtesy of my 16 year old nephew- and to think he's now a licensed driver!Read more
