It was my pleasure to help the sellers of this one-of-a-kind Fairview property prepare, stage, and sell their home of more than 30 years. Designed and built by violin maker and local music teacher Jack Williamson, this residence was envisioned for playing chamber music and Jack’s violin workshop. The builder's attention to detail was highlighted in our marketing campaign from the custom built-ins to the beautiful clear heart redwood walls and hemlock ceilings throughout.

The home sold after only 12 days on the market with multiple offers and $76,000 over the asking price!
