We like introducing you to agents we work with, love and admire. To us, it is worth spreading the word on the Real Estate Rock Stars out there.
Meet JASON VIYDO. He makes the home buying and selling process almost effortless. With his many years of experience in the industry he has seen and experienced just about everything. My advice? Listen to him, do what he says and your property will be listed, shown and sold in the best light. I appreciate that he personally meets us at the property, the inspector, the appraiser, the painter, the cleaner-it's all hands on and laser focused. I gave him a few get to know ya questions:
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR PROFESSION?
The opportunity to help my clients get clear on their real estate goals. It is one of the biggest financial purchase or sale most of us make in our lifetime. In some cases, giving the advice to not buy or sell if it is not in the best interest of my client is a rewarding part of my job. I like being able to help someone achieve their goals.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN AN AGENT?
30 years; all with Windermere Real Estate
WHAT IS ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE LISTINGS?
A group of townhomes on Yale in the Eastlake neighborhood in 2008. This was a fabulous site overlooking Lake Union, the city skyline and evening sunsets in the most challenging market I ever faced. I was able to get them all sold, while other properties around the city were going to foreclosure.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE DRINK?
Bourbon on the rocks. It reminds me of my father; he always had a bottle of Old Grandad in the liquor cabinet, even though I never saw him take a drink.
IF YOU HAD A BOAT WHAT WOULD YOU NAME IT?
The Carol Marie. (ahhh... I love that-your sweet adorable wife!)
WHAT IS THE BEST PURCHASE YOU EVER MADE?
Our home where we raised our family. However, I always enjoy the purchase of a hot, freshly baked chocolate chip cookie.
WHAT IS THE WORST THING ABOUT YOUR JOB?
Parking in city. To ease my pain, I’ve switched to a small electric car, the I-3. I can create a parking spot darn near anywhere.
WHAT BENEFIT DO YOU BRING TO A GROUP OF FRIENDS?
Humor. I like to give my friend’s a good-natured ribbing. If you can dish it out, you got to be able to take it.
WHAT WAS THE LAST BOOK YOU READ?
Leaders Eat Last by Simon Sinek. This book is about being a leader and pulling together as a team.
