2019 State Streets Home Sales & My Outlook for 2020


I am proud to have sold three State Street homes in 2019:  3202 Iowa, 3209 Michigan, and 3216 New York.  These sales represent the highest 3 prices per sq. foot for the year, and 3 of the 4 highest ever in the State Streets.   Looking back, I appreciate my clients' trust in my pre-marketing preparations, home pricing, and negotiation strategies for each sale.  Each home received multiple offers with 10 total offers received over the three homes.   I look forward to the opportunity to meet with you to show you how I can help you achieve the same with your home sale.  The top sale in the neighborhood according to sales price in 2019 goes to the expanded 1722 Missouri St. at $1,049,900. …

2019 Canyon Park Home Sales & My Outlook for 2020

An annual Halloween parade for kids, pets, and parents mostly in costume?   It's the envy of every neighborhood, or should be!  2019's parade was no exception.  Hundreds of neighbors met at 4:15, as they have for the past 29 years, before setting off on the 3 block stroll.  I had the privilege of catching up with past clients, friends, and family on the parade route and spotted many more I wish I saw more often.  "Can we have a parade more often than once a year?", one neighbor asked.  Kudos to fellow Realtor Mary Fewel, who has lead the parade since its inception.  The neighborhood is lucky to have this great event.  Long may it continue!
