What Does Your City Whisper to You?

by Drew Meyers on 11:00 am April 26, 2017

Given my own travels and having friends all over the world — I think about “cities” often. When I hear the name of a specific city, I generally think about my experiences while visiting or, if I’ve never been there, people I know who live there (or have told me about their prior visits). Or, perhaps I think about a book or movie that took place there. Maybe its a sports team. The point being that I have a unique perception of what makes a city and … Read More »

Context: A year ago, after several years of not having a permanent place of my own, I finally resettled full time in Seattle, and rented a condo in Queen Anne from a friend. That friend is now selling the condo rather than continuing to rent it out, so I’m seeking a new rental in the exact same area (Lower Queen Anne). I thought about buying, but … Read More »

Your Thoughts on “Real Estate Tech Startups” Meetups?

by Drew Meyers on 7:17 am August 12, 2013

There was an article recently in Inman about the New York Real Estate Tech Startups meetup that took place recently, and 60 people attended. If people in New York attend an event such as this (there are 434 people in their meetup group) — then I have to imagine there would be enough of a techy crowd in Seattle (Zillow, Redfin, Estately, MarketLeader and a number of tech savvy agents and brokers) and other cities for something similar? A couple questions: Are you interested in … Read More »
