You're Invited To The Windermere Cut Party

Next Friday, May 5th, is the Windermere Cut Party! The Windermere Mercer Island team invites you to join in the fun as we kick off the Windermere Cup weekend with a fun Cinco de Mayo party.

There will be food trucks on hand from El Camion, Taqueria Tonita, and Tacos La Flaca, three of the most popular Mexican food vendors in the Seattle area! You’ll be able to sip a beverage in the Beer and Margarita Garden, listen to live music, and enjoy the lovely Portage Bay views.

April 21st Seattle Area Market Report

We saw an incredible uptick in homes for sale this week and some slowing in the volume of pending sales. That said, we are hearing crazy stories of hot Seattle listings being bid up 20-25%.
