Seattle, Washington

Well, who hasn’t walked by this and daydreamed about living here? Frederick Anhalt built his unique interpretation of Tudor-inspired luxury apartment homes for the newly emerging urban-dweller in the mid to late 1920s. There are a number of them in Capital Hill, with characteristic architectural details and cloistered settings. Converted into condos in the 1960s, generally they remain in high demand and retain strong resale values because of their uniqueness and captivating charm. Residents are deeply committed to their Anhalts and turnovers are infrequent.

Not all condo buildings are created equal and that also applies to Anhalts. Besides evaluating the varying degrees of updates and improvements given to the individual units, these same considerations must be given to the building itself. The building management is an important variable: condos will be reflective of the homeowner associations that have governed it. 

‘’We were looking for an upscale condominium unit in the Capitol Hill area. Joanmarie's skills helped us find the right one at the right price. She knows the neighborhood, and the buildings, and steered us away from some that would have been a mistake. I think that diplomatically advising a client that "you do not want to buy this" is as important as "this is a good one, let's put in an offer." We would recommend Joanmarie to anyone who wants a first rate broker.”—Jim L.
