Helping 21 Families this Thanksgiving!

All month long, our Windermere Greenwood brokers and staff donated funds to help purchase turkeys, canned and perishable items for local families in need this holiday. During the holidays, canned pumpkin and yams, cranberry sauce and box stuffing, can help families have at least some of the traditional holiday fare.

Working with the  Greenwood Boys & Girls Club, we spent the morning organizing all the ingredients for Thanksgiving dinner for 21 neighborhood families!

This is just one way that Windermere Greenwood donates our time and money through the Windermere Foundation to support local non-profit organizations in our community. If you’d like to help us continue to support these and other programs this holiday season or beyond, please let us know!

Thank you to everyone who supports the Windermere Foundation. Your generosity is truly making a difference in the lives of many families in our local communities.

Windermere Greenwood wishes all of you a bountiful Thanksgiving with family and friends!

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.

From October 17 through November 14, we are collecting new hats, scarves, gloves/mittens, and warm socks for YouthCare, a non-profit that provides support and services to homeless youth throughout the Puget Sound area.

Windermere Cup 2016

 

This Saturday, May 7 marks the 30th anniversary of the Windermere Cup rowing regatta – an event held in conjunction with the Seattle Yacht Club on the Opening Day of boating season. This year is an especially exciting year as we celebrate 30 remarkable years of an event that was started by Windermere founder John Jacobi and the University of Washington, who came together to turn Seattle’s opening-day rowing regatta into something that could attract the highest caliber crews from around the world.

Over the years, countless universities and more than 20 countries have rowed in the Windermere Cup, including England, Germany, New Zealand, China, Australia – and the former Soviet Union, who raced in the event’s historic first year during what were very politically unstable times between the U.S. and USSR. Thirty years later, the Windermere Cup has invited Russia back to compete against the Husky men, bringing the event full circle.

“The very first Windermere Cup saw the former Soviet Union take on the UW in an epic matchup that would ultimately make international sporting history,” said OB Jacobi, president of Windermere Real Estate. “Bringing Russia for the 30th anniversary is as close as we can come to recreating that celebrated first race of this storied event.”

In addition to Russia, the UW men will face Stanford, while the UW Women will go up against the University of San Diego and Cambridge University.

To celebrate this year’s milestone anniversary, Windermere has released a coffee table book that tells the story of the Windermere Cup. Through insightful interviews, original documents, and breathtaking photography, the book captures the historic moments and colorful stories that have turned the Windermere Cup into an enduring, world-renowned rowing event. For more information and to purchase a copy of the Windermere Cup book, please visit http://windermerecup.withwre.com/ourstory/

We hope to see you along the shores of the Montlake Cut on Saturday, May 7 for this free, family-friendly community event. Races start at 10:20 ending with the Windermere Cup around noon, and followed by the Opening Day boat parade. There will also be food vendors, booths to purchase UW and Windermere Cup gear, as well as a bouncy house. More information can be found at www.windermerecup.com. You can also follow us at www.facebook.com/WindermereCup and @WindermereCup.

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
