Can you smell the faintest crisp in the air? This summer seemed to zip by faster than many and we find ourselves at the end of August. It was one of my busiest months thus far for me. I got immersed in learning about trailer parks and doublewides up North, proving that an old dog CAN learn new tricks. In this still strong, Seller’s market, I negotiated a deal on Queen Anne where the appraisal came in $10K higher than what the Buyer paid. My listing in Pinehurst sold in less than a week for considerably higher than list price. But the most fun I had, was working with the Sisters of Providence. Their referral, in my humble opinion, is better than the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval. As my best friend said, “Well Diane, from Naughty Girls to Nuns…you help them all!”. He he…
As many of you know, I co sponsored my Rotary Club’s Happy Hour for Good last Thursday to fund a grant our Club is working on to work with the teens from YouthCare. Thanks to our many generous guests and a matching grant from the District, we raised $10,000.!!! It was a huge success and a lot of fun! Lake Union Rotary has Happy Hours for Good the third Thursday night of the summer months taking advantage of our prime location at the Center for Wooden Boats. Our next one will be Sept 18. Mark your calendar for a feel good night!
And without further ado, here is what the Sisters had to say…
What Diane's Buyer's are Saying…
After we were evicted again from our
rental so that the owners could sell the house, we ourselves decided to buy a house in West Seattle. A friend recommended Diane Terry to us as an agent. As a community of adult women
of varying ages and physical abilities, we had some specific requirements and
price ranges that we wanted in our new house. Diane listened carefully to our needs and showed us all the properties that she thought would suit us. She did a very good job interpreting our needs, making what could have been a tedious task fun and informative.
After we made our choice Diane helped us navigate the intricacies of buying a house in a most professional way. She anticipated possible pitfalls and worked with her team so that we could be confident that we were not going to find unexpected problems ahead. When the Seller needed to obtain a city permit for the sewer line, her can-do and don’t give up spirit helped us to avoid sinking into frustration.
Because of her we now have the house we need and so much more. We have a friend for the long haul.
