“You’re very much at ease in this comfortable, traditional house. It’s a house with million dollar views that makes you sort of relax,” says listing agent, RE/MAX On Market’s John Manning.
The seller has nothing but great things to say about the home as well. “We absolutely love the beach lifestyle. Love waking up in the morning and smelling the saltwater, hearing the waves against the bulkhead and watching marine life out the windows.”

You might’ve seen our post last week with our buyer holding the “Miracle Home” sign and wondered, “What is it?”
Miracle Homes is a program that allows RE/MAX agents to make donations to children’s hospitals around the country. Since 1992, RE/MAX has partnered with Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) hospitals to raise more than $150 million for 170 partner hospitals and helped save countless young lives. Here in the Pacific Northwest, our donations go to Seattle Children’s Hospital in direct support of their charter to never turn any child away who needs care.
At RE/MAX On Market, we make a donation to Seattle Children’s Hospital after the sale of every home we sell. If we donate after the purchase or sale of your home, we will send you an Honor Card to let you know your home purchase or sale went towards a great cause!
If you’re not looking to buy or sell right now, you can still support your local CMN Hospital by making a donation at www.cmnhospitals.org.
Take a look at the infographic below to see the impact of donations.
