This month’s Premier networking breakfast saw more than 150 Puget Sound-area agents come together to hear the latest information on the real estate market. Brokers from as far away as Bellingham joined local brokers at Broadmoor Golf Club to present their newest luxury listings and to discuss 2016 luxury real estate trends and forecasts.
This month, we heard from Windermere’s Chief Economist, Matthew Gardner, and Windermere Owner, Matt Deasy. The Washington State economy has added almost 370,o00 jobs since the lowest point of the recession at the start of 2010. We expect to continue seeing modest job growth this coming year. That being said, our economy will continue to expand, which will be a benefit to our region’s housing market. A few other forecasts for this upcoming year: Mortgage rates will rise at a modest pace. We will see continued home price growth (+/- 5.5%). The Millennials will start to enter the market. Supply in the high-end market will remain tight, but easing demand may take some of the edge off. Matt Deasy provided a recap of 2015 year-end stats, which showed that Windermere continues to lead in the most homes sold and bought in luxury real estate in the Pacific Northwest.

Today, more than 160 Windermere brokers attended the company’s monthly Premier Properties breakfast at the Broadmoor Golf Club in Seattle’s Madison Park neighborhood. Agents from all over the Puget Sound area came together to share their new luxury listings and to learn how to make 2015 their most successful year yet through effective business planning. A big shout out to our speakers, Premier Executive Directors, Ty Evans (Windermere Bainbridge Island) and Rick Franz (Windermere Bellevue South), for sharing their insights and expertise.

Located in one of the most sought after streets in one of Seattle’s most sought after neighborhoods, the first word that comes to mind when viewing this Broadmoor colonial: majestic. We’re still trying to get our heart rate back down after seeing the arched doorways, ebony floors, custom silk curtains and Scalamandre wallpaper. And did you see that wine cellar? You’ll have more than enough room for family and friends who can stay poolside in the lux guest quarters. After a long day you can chill at the wet bar or decompress in the Jacuzzi. As if this couldn’t get any better, this home also sits on the 11th green of Broadmoor’s super-pristine golf course.
