On August 24th, Erik Weinbrecht from Sotheby’s International Realty highlighted technology’s impact on the market in the Pacific Northwest, quoting Dean Jones, Owner & President of Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty (RSIR) before highlighting several RSIR listings.
The blog post entitled, “Washington | Where Technology Drives Luxury,” describes a recent feature in The Wall Street Journal, in which RSIR Broker Carrie DeBuys discussed the art of competitive offers in this tech-infused Seattle market. It then continues by citing Dean Jones, who said that “the Greater Seattle Metro Area has fully recovered from the Great Recession and we are setting new benchmarks in sales values. 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, are compelling Millennials to step towards homeownership.”
