Kirkland, Washington

This home story began with the purchase of an older home on a large, private lot in an area that was going to see inevitable appreciation. The owner then undertook complete remodel, essentially gutting the entire original section and adding a major new addition. The original lines of the house became the template for the new spaces. No expense was spared in creating the open floor plan and private, luxurious spaces in this labor of love. It truly became the showcase home in this established neighborhood. 

Later, the home was put on the market. It held a unique position as a forecast of the developing trend in the neighborhood; it was important that prospective buyers recognize not only the value of the property but the strength of the location. Providing information proactively, being aware of development plans of the city and anticipating what educational resources would be helpful became essential. 

“We selected Joanmarie from a field of very qualified agents to represent us in several transactions…Her diligence and thoroughness lifted burden after burden from our shoulders. In the countless details of a real estate transaction, both foreseen and unforeseen, Joanmarie sees things that need to be done and she takes care of them-quietly, competently and cheerfully….It was remarkable watching her bring the parties together….she shines as a diplomat, being able to identify the real issues, develop strategies and find amenable solutions. This is accomplished with her inherent intuition, strength, tact and patience.” - Richard F.
