KW Red Day 2022

red day donations vine maple place

 

Red Day is a day of service for all Keller Williams agents that happens once a year! This year the Rosie Rourke Team along with our Keller Williams Mountains to Sound brokerage, are collecting donations for Vine Maple Place's Care Closet!  

The Care Closet meets the needs of basic hygiene products for VMP families. While Moms and Dads are at VMP busily working towards stability, they can grab what they need for their family from the care closet. This helps reduce their budget and saves them time and gas going to the store.

Most items can be purchased at the Dollar Store, Walmart, Fred Meyer, etc. or in bulk at Costco. (Please no sample sizes)

  • Toilet Paper
  • Deodorant (female)
  • Tampons
  • Shampoo
  • Laundry Detergent
  • Kitchen trash bags
  • Tall Kitchen Trash Cans w/o lid
  • Dish Soap
  • Paper Towels
  • Conditioner
  • Shaving Cream (female)

June Market Update

should I sell my house now with a real estate agent near me

Should I sell my house now? YES! 

The latest Market Insights Report is in... but what does it mean? It means that inventory (homes for sale in our area of Kent, Renton, Fairwood, Maple Valley, etc) are at historically LOW levels! This was a trend before #COVID19, there are just not enough homes for sale right now. Combine this with a historically high number of qualified home buyers literally waiting for something to hit the market in their price range and desired area. This combination is what is contributing to our ??? real estate market in South King Country! Here is what you need to do next... ⬇️
 
✔️Step One: See how many buyers have a home like yours in their search criteria RIGHT NOW here: www.rosierourke.com/buyernow
 
✔️Step Two: Check out the 5 reasons you should consider SELLING NOW here: www.rosierourke.com/sellnow
 
✔️Step Three: The last step is to reach out to an experienced real estate team that knows the market, is local, and has the experience to not only give you a stress free real estate experience but also navigate you through these unprecedented times! Team leader Rosie Johnson Rourke is celebrating 25 years in real estate this fall with an additional 20+ years of experience from the rest of the #rosierourketeam!

LIVE TO LIST

From Living in Your Home to Listing Your Home!

People always ask me, "Rosie, how is your team different from other real estate agents?" We take the time and put in the work BEFORE your home lists to help you get it ready! Most agents sign the listing agreement and you don't hear from them until listing day... that is NOT US! I've always found that pre-inspections, work orders and simple updates to a home is the secret sauce for a successful listing.

My team and I meet with vetted contractors, help you declutter/organize, and we know what today's buyer is looking for. We are there to hold your hand every step of the way, we want this to be a stress free experience! Here is a great example of a recent listing in Fairwood and how they went from LIVE TO LIST with the Rosie Rourke Team, enjoy! 

 

 

After watching the video you'll first hand how we were able to help this client! Yes, they did get top dollar, which is important, but they also had a stress free experience! Here is a great testimonial from them:

"We have watched Rosie and her team in action over the years and thought perhaps her group would be a good choice when it was time to sell our home and find a new one. We were impressed from our first meeting with her team. To say she knows the area she sells in is an understatement. Rosie and her group are long-standing community members who truly have the business experience to put their knowledge and connections to work for clients. Let me be clear-we also chose Rosie and her group because we really had confidence that they were working in our best interest at all times-not something we feel is true of all agents in our area. Rosie’s team was there for us at every level with advice, assistance and excellent business contacts for banking, contractors, inspections...the works! We brought a home to market with a clean inspection, completed a purchase of a new home and sale of existing one in a few short weeks. Looking back, I know for certain we would have spent more money and taken much longer to get to the finish line had we worked with anyone else. We are so grateful for all the hard work and responsiveness of her entire team. Questions were answered, problems solved, good humor an professionalism right down the line. This is not our first home and we recall all the setbacks and frustrations that can come about during this process if details are missed or someone has their bottom line as a priority over your own. We are doubly aware of the quality of services we received. Do not hesitate to give Rosie’s group a call. I’d put them at the top of your list. Set up a meeting, do your homework and let them impress you."

Happy New Year!

As we enter into a new decade we are coming off of an historic serge in our Renton, Fairwood, Kent, Maple Valley, and Seattle real estate markets! The past few years we have seen prices rise and interest rates fall, but what does 2020 have in store for us? It's also an election, what does that do for first time home buyers, home sellers, second time buyers, and is it a good time to buy or sell a home? Let's ask Rosie Rourke, once of King County's best real estate agents what she things, watch the video below!
