I had to write about Seattle Real Estate because my other Seattle real estate blog is again giving me trouble

Seattle is cooling down but Real Estate in Seattle stays Hot

I was talking with a 50 plus year old man today who was about to spend $900k on a house moving to Seattle from Denver. He is not alone thousands are moving to Seatle, why? Because Seattle and the Pacific Northwest have so much to offer. So much in fact that there are quality of life signs all over the city. Three is construction happenning every where. The Seattle SeaHawks went to the super bowl, so they lost, but still they went. Ok they we’re robbed of the super bowl, I am from Minnesota and Twin Cities originally, so Seattle Sea Hawks are not my favorite team, I did feel for them, after they lost the worst officiated Super Bowl in History.

The richest man in the world lives in Seattle, and many more millionaires from his great
company call Seattle thru home. So it really is no surprise that Seattle us a cool place to live. Yes, it was very cold here today, but the Real estate prices remain very HOT.

A real estate website I use to own, UrbanTango.com had two listings in Seattle NWMLS, one was in Bellevue and one was in Queen Anne and they both sold within 30 days or so. The real estate market is cooling in North America as the recent Seattle times articles suggest, but the Home prices in Seattle local market stayed hot too! I read some where a few months ago, that Seattle Metro is suppose to add 27,000 new jobs, where wil all these people live? Guess what is getting to stay Hot?

Starting a new company in Seattle, coincidental space

I went to the local bank here in Seattle with my business partner Keith, and we didn’t have all of our paperwork together, so off we went home by our selves.  We finished our work on our Beta website for a product for real estate agents hosted at http://www.XoomPad.com this is essentially a brochure wear site, and we will be adding message boards, blogs etc to create community around real estate agents.  But any way not to get off the topic, Seattle still doesn’t suck because today, the bank people were very diverse, friendly, and cultured.  We walked in to this local branch office in Queen Anne of Home Street Bank, and really liked the feel as soon as we walked in.  The staff was friendly etc, so guess all 3 employees were from some where other than Seattle.  After that we called the owner of their building and met with him about office space he had.  Bryan was too cool, a really good reason why Seattle Doesn’t Suck!  He was genuinely a nice guy, and we really liked him.  He gave us the details and he ended up talking his website called http://www.realty.net  I must check it out.  He learned what we were doing with our new company and wanted us to build a competing service of Zillow for his commercial real estate offerrings at http://www.realty.net  wow, i like the name much better than i thought about it.  I am typing it in as links as I am trying to get  afeel for the beauty of the name.  It’s a cool name, and Bryan we hope we get your office space, and than we can build you a cool web solution for your real estate dreams to come true!  So a small coincidental trip made me a believer on why I want my office at Queen Anne top of the hill, and life in Seattle is awesome!  And, it does not suck!
Than we went to lunch at a local Indian Restaurant called Banjara.  The new owners there were very nice, they moved up here in Queen Anne a few years ago, buying the restaurants from my old friend Qazi.  The new owners recognized Keith right away, and they were really cool because they were inquisitive, interesting, and made good Indian Food. Another really good reason, Seattle Doesn’t suck.

After the bank trip we worked on the website and came back to our local coffee shop called Fiore on Galer Street in Queen Anne.  It’s a new but very cool coffee shop, the owner Deming walked by and said hello to both keith and I.  He genuinely likes us, I think, so that is another reason why Seattle Doesn’t Suck!

death of a Seattle Real Estate news blog and now I am free to press on my life

Hi I was just using this blogging tool for my Seattle Real Estate blog as a trial, instead of my Blogger blog.  This WordPress technology seems to be much more intuitive.  I really like it.  Seattle Real Estate agent blogs that I had before were good for 37 articles plus that I wrote last 2 1/2 years.  So this is very cool, that this WordPress technology is taking things a little bit further.  So now, I am really happy.  I don’t want to just write about business any more or about real estate.  I want to start writing why Seattle Doesn’t suck!  Seattle Doesn’t suck because it has the best coffee, the best views on a sunny day, and pretty cool people most of the days!  I live in Queen Anne, it is one of the prettiest places on earth.  I live by trader Joes store, the ethnic food, the amazing snacks, the best prices, the 2 buck Chuck wine, is all topped by the staff.  The people who work at Trader Joes in Queen Anne Seattle Rock. They are some of my favorite people!  By for now, I want to plug in my businesses but for this first reason I want to say Seattle Doesn’t suck because of Trader Joes Queen Anne!
