Realogics Sotheby's International Realty Makes the Puget Sound Business Journal's List of Top Residential Real Estate Firms; Continues to Innovate Industry with "Change Agents"

Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty (RSIR) is featured in the latest print version of the Puget Sound Business Journal for its position on the list of Top Residential Real Estate Firms (ranked by 2015 residential home sales in the Puget Sound region). Taking the 7th spot on the list, RSIR reported $800 million in local residential sales for 2015. Most notably, despite being smaller than any of the brokerages in the top 5 spots at 159 agents, the boutique brokerage reported an average sales price of $767,000, higher than the average of each of the top 5 firm’s by at least $225,000.

“We are proud of our consistent recognition among the area’s largest brokerage firms and extend a congratulations to all the firm’s that made this year’s list,” said Jennifer Johnsen, Vice President of Brand Development. “Our brokers work tirelessly and this is ultimately an acknowledgement of their achievements."

The feature was opposite an RSIR spread that reads, “We Are. | Change Agents” and describes the firm’s commitment to industry innovation, extraordinary marketing prowess and broker servicing that befits a global company. It also makes note of the new and improved rsir.com, RSIR’s Asia Services Group, and the firm's over $2 billion in marketing sales experience for new construction.

As Dean Jones, Owner & CEO of RSIR previously said of the “change agent” philosophy, “Our brand is creating a positive disruption in the industry and our brokers are increasingly change agents in their respective markets. We observe a unique added-value, full-service business model that’s being endorsed by our brokers and consumers alike.”

Chinese group lays out early plans for big downtown Bellevue property

Big developments coming to Bellevue! Once considered to be merely a suburb of Seattle, Bellevue has grown to become a destination and powerhouse in its own right; the momentum has no signs of stopping.

Leading the charge is a continuous stream of foreign investment and capital, most notably from China. In the latest of mixed-use construction projects, Plus Investment USA (the local arm of the Hong Kong based Plus Investment) plans to create a half-block project of multiple condominium towers that lie above street-level retail. 

The project is located on the south side of NE Eighth Street between 108th and 110th Avenues, with more concrete plans to come in the near future.
