Team Diva Real Estate has been very lucky over the years to to be invited into people’s lives right when they are starting a new phase in life. We have watched young couples fall in love, become Diva Dwellers, have a baby or two, get a dog, plant a garden and all of the other yummy life milestones. It is truly a blessing to have this incredible experience with so many couples as we all move forward in our own lives.
The Allred’s are exactly this type ofÂ Diva Wall of Famers. Alex and Jon have been in the Diva family since forever – OK – maybe since 2001. Diva Kim helped them find their first home in the Central District. At the time Alex worked at Archie McPhees/Accutraments and later joined 826-Seattle (a Team Diva Community Partner). We spent many magical evenings dining with each other and swapping wine stories. We were guests at their wedding and celebrated fully at the arrival of their daughter Tilia. Just recently we were there when Cheech joined the Allred circle. We have been lucky enough to be introduced to the pals of this magical couple, all of which we consider to be in the Diva Dweller family.
