I have a strong passion for the history of Seattle. I especially love seeing how homes have changed and neighborhoods have formed. What a remarkable transformation our city has been through! I often wonder if the people who grew up in Seattle during the early 1900's could even remotely fathom how their city would change over the next century. I think it is extremely important to know and honor our past. Our city has made some great improvements, some unfortunate choices and survived its share of turbulent times. Overall, we are a pretty progressive community.

Jessica was a dream Realtor! She took the time to understand what we wanted, worked with our busy schedules to view houses, and then when it came time to put in an offer and throughout the entire purchasing process, she educated and "held our hand" through it! We felt that she always had our best interest at heart and that she kept us in the loop through the whole process. We HIGHLY recommend having Jessica as a Realtor!
