A Salute To All Those On The Frontline

So much happens so quickly. Since our last post, we’ve watched Seattle area residents and businesses rally together like never before amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Being in home lockdown, however, we don’t see what’s happening firsthand with the hardworking people on the frontlines. It seems appropriate to take a moment to salute all the grocery store workers, supply chain specialists, janitors, fire and police crews, nurses, doctors and health care workers, and sanitary workers. We can’t praise enough those attending to an overwhelming number of sick patients in clinics and hospitals, and those keeping our communities running safely and smoothly. We were inspired by Greater Seattle’s show of “joyful noise” last Thursday evening, when members of Seattle’s cultural community, along […]

Tacoma’s Squeeze is an Investor’s Lemonade

While Seattle’s tight housing market has held the attention of the media since the tech industry has firmly taken root, the population spill-over into other parts of Greater Puget Sound is no more evident than the next major port city just south: Tacoma. Last week, Tacoma’s own daily newspaper, The News Tribune, reported on the swift real estate momentum in its backyard and cited how real estate company and industry tracker Redfin named Tacoma “fastest-selling metro market nationwide” as of January 2020. Further discussion from Tacoma’s own city council members identified a pain point in the dearth of affordable housing– specifically a lack of multifamily housing, duplexes, and townhomes. Tacoma was the fastest-selling national market, with half of all homes […]

To some, that red line running down Washington State’s I-5 and I-405’s traffic corridors on a traffic app are enough to heighten blood pressure on a commute, but on the flipside there’s a silver lining for investing in high-density, transit-oriented developments for this very reason. Industry experts note that as traffic continues to worsen […]


We’re Thankful for The Issaquah Turkey Trot

Our Issaquah community is proud to rally to serve our neighbors in need, and nowhere does that sense of doing for others come through more than on Thanksgiving Day. All of us at Juniper Capital are thrilled to spotlight The Issaquah Turkey Trot, a noble event with a vital community purpose: helping those in need of food and clothing. Even in the most prosperous communities, there is often an entire hidden population struggling. We are thankful for the Turkey Trot because it benefits The Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank, which is there to provide support to hundreds of local families each week.  Juniper Capital is headquartered in this town and our team applauds this community effort. We encourage everyone to […]


Coming in Hot: Multifamily Sales on the Eastside

We congratulate our friends Tim, Sam and Dan at Collier’s for recently closing the second largest deal of the year…and it happened right here in Issaquah, the hometown where Juniper Capital is located! All of us at Juniper tip our hat to this $125 million, off-market deal. As King County’s second-largest multifamily sale of 2019, the sale illustrates how the Eastside has endured as a highly desirable residential location and is resurging to become one of the Pacific Northwest’s most appealing investment markets. The Puget Sound Business Journal’s real estate reporter Marc Stiles noted the sale, citing in a recent headline “Issaquah is the region’s hottest apartment market.” It helps of course that top technology campuses (Microsoft, SpaceX, eBay, SAP […]

One means to easing the burden of rising housing costs is to encourage the supply of affordable housing. A community land trust (CLT) can do just that. Recently the […]

The Seattle area housing squeeze is far from over; if the pace of increasing rents is any indicator, the squeeze has simply moved its way south into areas such as Kent, Renton, Auburn and Burien. Recently a nine-city consortium called South King Housing and Homelessness Partners formed to maintain the area’s role as […]
