Featured on SIR.COM | Washington: Where Technology Drives Luxury
I am excited to announce that my Queen Anne Penthouse is featured on Sotheby's International Realty's blog in an article discussing Seattle's technological market.
According to a recent article published in the Wall Street Journal, “The technology boom is pushing its way north up the Pacific Coast, boosting real-estate prices, sparking neighborhood squabbles and creating new demand for luxury homes asking $1.5 million or more. [Seattle’s] high-end real-estate market is on the rise, as executives relocate from pricier locales like Silicon Valley.”
“The Greater Seattle Metro Area has fully recovered from the Great Recession and we are setting new benchmarks in sales values,” said Dean Jones, President & CEO of Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty. “The catalyst for demand is our diversified and booming economy, driven in large part by the tech sector, and our emerging status as a preferred gateway for Chinese buyers. Our abundance of natural resources and affordable waterfront lifestyles and rising rents, which are compelling Millennials to step towards homeownership.”
