As everyone knows, Seattle home prices have sky-rocketed and we don’t seen any sign of a slow down, due to the lack of inventory, and increase in financially strong buyers. For a growing family who dreams of a backyard, large living space, and the single family home experience, we suggest opening your search and looking outside of Seattle proper. We met the Salmon family through a Keller Williams agent in Brooklyn, New York (where they lived for 11 years). She looked to Alicia Shope to help them start their new life in the Pacific Northwest. Since Keller Williams has an amazing referral network, it was easy for them to start the process right away. We loved that they had narrowed in on Kent, a city near Seattle & Bellevue, but far enough away that they could find everything they were looking for in their dream home. 1 year later, we had the chance to check in, hear the news of baby number 5, capture some adorable photos, and interview them about their journey to homeownership on the West Coast.
