Welcome to Friday and hello to the atmospheric river overhead! As promised, leaving the good read right here all of October. I’ll be back with new curated commentary next Friday. I will however share this hour long conversation from the DSA (Downtown Seattle Association) on the retails road ahead – one of the best things I digested this week. I love my city and have hope for resurgence in areas we desperately need. All in, for Seattle. All right here.
And oh, Happy Halloween! Couldn’t help be share a visit from Ted Lasso this week at our Eastlake Office – jealous anyone? #BeAGoldfish
And this too – did anyone figure out the color of the carpet in the original Windermere office? Read on…
I’m hosting “The Windermere Way” book here all of October now that we have this read in a digital version (ISSUU). The “preface” below, along with a link to the entire book is now available for your fall reading list. I just finished re-reading it cover to cover & I hope you will you join me? And, for those of you in my Seattle Windermere Real Estate Co. offices – it just might pay off if you read it in its entirety – knee deep in planning November FUN around the content! Turn the pages – the more you know – the more you could win! Trivia anyone?
“To this day, I’m firmly committed to my belief that owners and agents must build strong relationships with each other, be willing to share knowledge and know-how, and learn to ask – even to rely on – each other for help. You don’t compete with each other; you work toward the same professional objectives. By doing that, everyone wins and there are not only fewer mistakes and failures, but also greater success.” – John Jacobi
After you finish “The Windermere Way” – I believe you too will agree John Jacobi is one of the great architects within our industry. It is for us to continue building in modern ways yet in keeping stride with the foundation firmly poured for us.
Enjoy turning the pages & in authoring the chapters to come – together – I’m All IN for that.
And oh, what color was the original carpet of our very first Windermere office in 1972? Read on to find out…
Here to help – the ultimate goal. – Laura
