Batten Down the Hatches! Winter Storm Preparations

The National Weather Service has predicted that the Pacific Northwest may see gale force winds and 4 inches of rain when the remnants of Typhoon Songda hits the coast Thursday afternoon through the weekend. We might expect urban flooding, high winds power failures and falling tree limbs.

Take these steps to get ready:

  • Create an emergency preparedness kit with at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food and water for your home and office. Kits prepared for vehicle road travel and winter weather evacuation go-kits are also advised.
  • Don’t forget to have food/water for your pets!
  • Make a plan with your family and those who depend on you.
  • Stay informed and know the weather approaching so you are prepared for whatever Mother Nature throws our way.

Greenwood Neighborhood Explosion Relief Efforts

In response to the explosion at 85th and Greenwood, The PNA and its business members are creating an action plan to provide relief to the area. We are grateful to be part of a community that quickly steps up to help. We’ll update you as we go along.

Windermere Greenwood and our real estate Brokers were shocked to learn in the early morning hours of March 9th 2016, Three of our neighboring businesses were entirely leveled by a natural gas explosion. Mr. Gyros, Neptune Coffee and QuickStop Mini-Market were completely destroyed. Dozens of other businesses and apartments had windows and doors shattered and additional damage. Our office, luckily, had only minor damage with a few broken lights and shattered picture frames.

Our hearts go out to our neighboring businesses affected by this devastating accident. We will be supporting the Phinney Neighborhood Association relief efforts by donating funds individually and as a PNA member business.

Checks can be made out to Phinney Neighborhood Association with “Greenwood disaster relief” in the memo and sent to:

PNA – Greenwood Relief Fund
6532 Phinney Ave N.
Seattle, WA 98103

We will also support neighborhood fundraising efforts and invite you to help our community rebuild. Please click the link below to learn about events in support of the staff and businesses of Greenwood

Windermere Community Service Day 2015

Today is our annual Community Service Day!

 

This year, our dedicated Windermere Greenwood real estate brokers volunteered to paint fun and games for the preschool playground at Viewlands Elementary School.

Viewlands Elementary School

From simple chalk outlines, the lifecycle of a frog from eggs to tadpole, froglet to full grown frogs leaping across lilly pads came to life. A habitat mural along the back wall with ABC’s and 123’s plus every kid’s favorite – hopscotch games in full fun colors are ready for the preschoolers to enjoy!

Every year Windermere closes its offices for one day to help make a positive difference in our local communities. It all started in 1984 when a handful of Windermere owners and agents came together to make repairs at a local elementary school. Thirty years and more than one million hours of community service later, we’ve continued this tradition through neighborhood-enhancing projects in the areas where our Windermere teams live, work, and play. Follow our projects online at www.facebook.com/WindermereRealEstate.
