Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty Brings Two Properties to Curbed’s Most Expensive Home Sales of the Year List

Sean Keeley from Curbed Seattle did a little digging, when he “decided to round up the region’s most expensive real estate sales of the year so far” and he found that the Eastside was the true “hot spot,” as “only two of the top 15 happened in Seattle” while “the rest were spread out across Bellevue, Mercer Island and Medina.” Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty (RSIR), no stranger to high end property sales, was involved in two of the transactions, one on the buyer’s end, the other on the seller’s.

Chris Doucet represented the buyer of “Laurelhurst Colonial Revival,” which sold for $5.22M. One of only two homes on Curbed’s list are located in Seattle, and Keeley notes the significance of this transaction, as the home “was actually ‘only’ listed for $4.65M,” meaning that “one of those bidding wars we keep hearing about must’ve ensued and the three-level Colonial Revival ended up going for almost $600k over ask.”

Jim Stroupe represented the seller of “New Mercer Island 4-BR,” which sold for $4.1M. Keeley describes that this property was one among a handful of new construction opportunities, adding that “when it’s done, the 8,235 square-foot NW contemporary will sit on two lots touching 101 feet of no-bank waterfront.”
