RSIR Quotes Christine Kipp Regarding Waterfront Living on the Eastside

When looking for the latest trends in waterfront leaving east of Seattle, Realogics Sotheby's International Realty looked to Christine Kipp, a Founding Director of the future RSIR Issaquah Branch office and expert in the area, for insight.

Chris told RSIR, "Similar to the trends on Bainbridge Island, we’re seeing buyers prefer the cities of Issaquah and Sammamish because they offer exceptional school districts, remain close to job centers and arterials and we offer lakefront properties,” adding that "this area truly offers the total package but selection is anemic – there are fewer than a dozen active listings on Lake Sammamish, Beaver Lake or Pine Lake at this time.  In this climate, it’s not uncommon for us to play matchmaker with buyers and sellers off market so that actual stats are not as it appears with the NWMLS."
