#HAWKPOCALYPSE: Seahawks Fans Take Seattle & Social Media by Storm & Skittles

Bennion & Deville Fine HomesAs locals know, Seattle often works in mysterious ways.  Yesterday our great city granted us glorious weather and one heck of a good time as the Seahawks legendary 12th man – a blue and green mass of hometown folks and hawks fans – took to the streets in numbers in excess of 700,000 to give our Super Bowl XLVIII champs and this city’s first Lombardi trophy the welcome home they so deserved.

Seahawks fans Howard & Joshua Zorzi
Seahawks fans Howard & Joshua Zorzi

We kicked off this NFL season well aware of the fact that we had a team of unique talent that was both positioned and expected to do great things.  Throughout fall, Seattleites watched as the Seahawks tromped through the league, soaring their way to the top the NFL and quickly becoming one of the best teams the sport had seen in quite some time.  It didn’t take long before the team’s cohesiveness and camaraderie on the field started to rub off at home.  For the first time in a long time, Seattle started to feel the power of being connected through a shared goal: bringing home this city’s first championship since 1979.  Stirred by the unifying outlet of a winning sports team and in this case, the 12th man, our weathered sports fans were strengthened by this shared hope and the legion of jersey-wearing, beastquake-producing fans grew strong…and loud.  Last Sunday, as the team took to the field in the meadowlands and proved that they could win it all, the Seahawks organization, it’s fans and this wonderful city practically oozed cohesion.

Bob Bennion & Bob DevilleThen yesterday, as the sun shone brightly and the snow-covered cascade mountains peeked at us through the early morning haze, our usual February rainfall yielded to frozen hands full of Skittles and confetti and bright blue skies.  Seattleites flooded onto public transportation and fans aligned along Fourth Avenue to make sure the world knew that we were “in,” and not simply a rapidly multiplying band wagon of “fair weather fans”-  a term we couldn’t possibly claim anyway due to our long-held reputation for gray skies and rainy days.  Mid-morning drew near and businesses, schools and other city happenings took pause for a moment that will most certainly go down in Seattle history as the Celebrate 48 Victory Parade kicked off.

Bennion and Deville Seattle Real Estate AgentsTo wrap up several weeks of Seahawks bragging via the blogosphere here are a few snapshots of a long-overdue win and celebration as well as a look back on the day’s events through some of our favorite tweets and twitter mentions of the day as the internet became a flurry with Hawk Pride.  The parade might now be over but #Celebrate48 continues through the endless memories and images that will stay with Seattle sports fans for years to come.  Cheers to an exciting season that carried Seattle to the top and here’s to making a run for the repeat next season! …

BENNION & DEVILLE FINE HOMES REPRESENT PENTHOUSE IN THE ACCLAIMED, ENVIRONMENTALLY-CONSCIOUS MOSLER LOFTS

Bennion & Deville Mosler Lofts press release SEATTLE, WA. – As Seattle ranks fifth on American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy’s (ACEEE) first edition of the City Energy Efficiency Scorecard, Bob Bennion of Bennion & Deville Fine Homes Inc. and fellow Windermere agent Mary Snyder are pleased to be representing one of their newest and greenest listings, a sophisticated penthouse unit on the top floor of the acclaimed Mosler Lofts, the most nationally acclaimed, environmentally conscious residential high-rise building of 2008 developed by The Schuster group.

The enthusiasm surrounding Seattle’s demonstrated leadership and commitment to energy efficiency on the City Energy Efficiency Scorecard has come at a good time for the Bennion & Deville team as they take on marketing and selling one of Mosler Lofts finest units. In the Scorecard released this month by the ACEEE, Seattle scored highly against the most populous U.S. cities on their policies and other actions to advance energy efficiency. Ranking among the top five cities in all categories, Seattle also scored higher than any other city in Building Policies. “Over the last several years we have noticed a growing enthusiasm for sustainable architecture in Seattle,” said Bob Bennion, co-owner of Bennion & Deville Fine Homes Inc.  “As energy costs continue to rise, our clients are becoming increasingly environmentally savvy, and much more green-conscious homebuyers.”

bob bennion Windermere Mosler LoftsMosler Lofts, a 12-story building highly acclaimed for its innovative design and green-building practices, is a prime example of a building that is reflective of the significant efforts put forth by the Seattle building and architectural community for greener building and living initiatives. Upon completion in 2008, the building was Seattle’s first high-rise residential building to receive the coveted Silver LEED® certification. Further notable acclaim includes: Top Ten Greenest Projects in the Region from the American Institute of Architects; Best Sustainable Community from the Pacific Coast Builder’s Conference; and the Built Green, 3-Star Certificate from the Washington Master Builders Association.

Bob Bennion co-lists this two bedroom, two and a half bath Penthouse unit with Windermere colleague, Mary Snyder.  Thoughtfully designed to accommodate the Schuster group’s sustainable vision, the result is a stunning, dual-level home that is actively working to reduce operating costs, save energy, conserve water, reduce pollution, and improve indoor air quality.  With an open floor plan, extra-high ceilings that maximize the natural light and the spectacular Space Needle and Elliot Bay views, as well as custom details throughout, this penthouse is a model of eco-friendly, urban-chic loft living. “People want more environmentally friendly places to live but don’t necessarily want to sacrifice the conveniences of modern design and sophistication,” said Bob Bennion. “Mosler Lofts allows people to live more responsibly, enjoy all the benefits that come with living in a green-certified building, and be in a luxury high-rise in an urban environment.  That combination is very rare in today’s market.”

Other green features of the building include ultra-efficient heating and cooling systems, a rain garden to reduce storm water run-off, water-reducing plumbing fixtures, lavish use of recycled local and regional materials, special reflective windows and use of non-toxic paints.Bennion and Deville space needle picture

Bob Bennion and Bob Deville of Bennion & Deville Fine Homes Inc. are proud of Seattle’s push to promote a greener city. “We hope Seattle will continue to lead by example in regards to energy efficiency initiatives and incentives in local government.  These kinds of efforts provide huge benefits to residents,” said Bennion. “Residential spaces that encourage healthier lifestyles also encourage people to learn new behaviors, change their attitudes regarding environmentalism, and ultimately greatly improve the communities that we live in.”
