It was a fateful, bright sunny day…

It was a fateful, bright sunny day – just like today – 10 years ago.  I was driving down 202 when I saw the Conner Homes ‘For Sale’ sign.  The builder had just broken ground on phase 1 and had done no marketing.  Since many of my clients worked at Microsoft I immediately recognized the value of this vibrant community we now call home – Woodbridge.

Having got the word out and helping Conner Homes sell more homes than any other realtor in a single community in Conner Homes history, the builder presented me with their signature Woodbridge logo that used to hang in the Woodbridge office here, remember? It was signed by all members of their staff as a token of their appreciation.

(The logo as it sits in my office today)

Much has happened in the Real Estate market place these past few years.  We are fortunate to have been spared the brunt of the down-turn.  In my opinion the Eastside has pretty much bottomed out as far as newer homes go.  We will probably experience a sideways tide for most of the next 12 months.

Since new construction in Bellevue, Redmond and Kirkland is pretty much limited to small pockets, I think that supply and demand should achieve a healthy ratio.

If you have any questions at all about the market, please write to me at zafferlalji@gmail.com

My upcoming blog posts will include:

  • More of my insights into the Eastside and Seattle Real Estate market.
  • Recommendations for Mortgage brokers, inspectors and handymen.
  • And more!
