Leavenworth Windermere - Not Leaving Town!

Windermere real estate in Leavenworth is not leaving town despite rumors to the contrary.

In  these tough economic times the owners of the local office have decided to cut costs by minimizing the amount of rent paid for office space.

We will no longer be using the space at 1133 Highway 2 in Leavenworth.

Here's where it gets tricky though...

The Washington State Department of Licensing has very strict rules about what a real estate office can and cannot be. Much of it has to do with location of files and real estate licenses, brokers, designated brokers and managing brokers. (Minutiae that you probably could care less about.)

To meet those requirements, our official office is now the Windermere office in Wenatchee. This is the office where I got my start and where I actually studied for my real estate license years ago.

Windermere is negotiating getting a smaller space in Leavenworth for agents to meet clients and to house office essentials like a fax machine, computer, printer, etc.  Due to state licensing requirements, it will not have a Windermere sign.

Allyson and I are in the process of rennovating a home office which will be the nerve center for our operations.

Mostly we will continue to market properties in all the efficient ways we know how - through the Internet, through top notch marketing materials, through our wide network of colleagues in and out of real estate. And we will continue to spend our time out in the market with clients looking at homes.

If you want a tour of our new home office - give us a shout. We'd love to share it with you.

Comments

Geordie, Great comment, reminding people that your work of marketing properties is primarily on the internet. The people who are selling vacation homes in Leavenworth certainly know that the kind of buyers they are looking for hit the web first instead of driving over the pass to walk into an office. With things being slower, I wouldn't want the added overhead.

Geordie made this somewhat complicated transition easier for us…going above and beyond to help us work through issues that came up during the sale of our parents home. We appreciated his knowledge, attentiveness to details and his willing spirit.
Our family is grateful for Geordie!

Geordie was great in every way. We have been looking in the Leavenworth area for some time, and Geordie was absolutely the best for local knowledge, history and depth on neighborhoods, developments and the local market trends. He was very quick to respond (even when he was on his vacation) and worked very diligently to get all of our questions answered in a very timely fashion. We would recommend him highly to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Very friendly, and helped us navigate all of the local options before we made an offer on the property that we purchased. Thank you, Geordie!

It was such a pleasure to work with Geordie and his wife, Allyson on our cabin purchase. They showed us a variety of locations, listened to what we wanted and helped us find the perfect match. Everything was smooth and not stressful, just relaxed and easy. We would definitely recommend Geordie and use him again if the need arises!

Maybe you rent a house here and have decided to stay, surprised how a summer of rafting somehow turned into seven years.

Maybe it’s time to escape the hustle of the big city (and its rain) and move to Leavenworth with its four seasons.
