Making the Case for Nerdier Real Estate Agents

Bob Bennion Windermere Agent Bennion & Deville Fine Homes
A very geek chic Bob Bennion.

Kathleen Doler of Investors.com recently published an article discussing the many ways Real Estate agents now connect with house hunters online.  “Succesful real estate agents today need all the usual skills- local market market expertise, trustworthiness, and negotiation and sales chops” she said “…but they must also be, well, nerdy.”  Today’s “nerdy” strays far from the stereotype of the geeky techie who was marginalized for so long in pop culture. The rise of geek chic came in part due to the legacy of industry leaders like Apple’s Steve Jobs and Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg who have driven us down a road of dependance on nifty mobile gadgets and a whole new world of Apps that we run our lives, schedule our appointments, pin our fantasy worlds and stay constantly connected through.

In today’s increasingly technological focused marketplace, evaluating real estate agents’ “tech and social media know-how” will play an important factor in your choice of someone to guide you through the complicated process of selling your home and purchasing a new one. We are not readers of the internet any more, we are scanners, and at Bennion & Deville Fine Homes, we believe that both real time marketing and a more integrated social media campaign have become vital components of providing clients with a level of service that encompasses a full 360 degree approach to real estate marketing.  This call for “nerdier” real estate agents, we thought, was the perfect opportunity to highlight some of the Bennion & Deville team’s own efforts to stay afloat in the ever changing digital world and offer our clients the best service possible on the web AND in print….#NERDALERT.

Seattle’s Best: Bennion & Deville Picks for Fine Dining and Entertainment in the Emerald City

Here at Bennion & Deville we’re strong believers in the idea that there’s no better place to live than Seattle. Not only is Seattle a great place to buy real estate (Seeking city & mountain views? Lake front? A plentiful abundance of neighborhood coffee shops?- we can check all these boxes), the city is rich with culture and the arts, never lacking in weeknight or weekend entertainment options. So rich, in fact, that there are far too many things to do and see in just one weekend. With a number of plays and comedy troupes coming to Seattle this fall, and an abundance of fine cuisine, we’ve narrowed it down to a few more picks for entertainment starting this weekend.

A Night at the Bathhouse Theatre with The Habit Comedy Troupe

Bob Bennion WindermereNamed Seattle’s best comedy group, “The Habit” is back with another original play this November. The group, which began performing together in 1995 at the University of Washington writes and directs its own comedy shows each year. “The Habit 13,” which marks the troupe’s 13th show, will open on Friday, November 15 and continue through December 1this year. Audiences can look forward to comedic sketches about passive aggressive astronauts, bomb defusing robots and the vagueness of our founding fathers in this year’s performance.

Tickets are available on The Habit’s website now. This show has been rated PG-13; something to consider if you plan on taking the entire family.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s “The Hound of the Baskervilles”

This comedic Sherlock Holmes tale of brash Canadian, Henry Baskerville is sure to keep audiences on the edge of their seat. As the dark mystery behind Baskerville’s inherited British mansion unfolds before their eyes, can play-goers decipher the clues in this classic Victorian whodunit before the famous detective himself?Bob Bennion Seattle Real Estate

“The Hound of the Baskervilles” will run from November 15 through December 15. Tickets for the three hour performance range from $15 to $45 and are available on Seattle Repertory Theatre’s website.

“Priscilla, Queen of the Desert” the Musical

Don’t miss your last chance to catch the Broadway touring version of “Pricilla, Queen of the Desert” as is makes its final stop in Seattle this weekend. Full of sequins, neon colors and platform shoes, this tale of three friends is sure to entertain with its mix of down-to-earth stories and over-the-top musical numbers to hits including the classic “I Will Survive.”

The show will be held at the Paramount Theater through Sunday, November 17. Tickets range in price from $25 to $70 and are available online now.

Brunswick and Hunt Farm-To-Table Pop-Up Dinner

The team behind Brunswick and Hunt invite you to join them for a six course feast, sampling some of Seattle’s finest foods and drink in celebration of their highly anticipated restaurant opening in 2014.  The dinner will take place at Altura at 6 p.m. on November 7 and include dishes like Oxtail and Mushroom Toasts, Autumn Braised Chicken and Double Chocolate Cake with a smoked chocolate ganache, butter bourbon pudding and crabapple compote. Each course comes with its own specially selected drink pairing for the finest dining experience. Tickets for the event are $90 and are available online now.

With so many great things to choose from, how could you go wrong? For more great weekend options, check out Seattle Met’s website here and stay tuned for our next Bennion & Deville Weekend Roundup.
