There’s No Place Like Home

One of the benefits of being a Realtor is helping people find their dream home. It doesn’t matter what stage of life they are in – a 20-something looking for their first condo, a young couple in search of a house, newcomers relocating to Seattle, empty nesters looking to downsize – Mr. Roger enjoys being a part of the home-buying process with these folks, at the cusp of a beautiful relationship between the occupants and the structure. Dorothy was right…there’s no place like home.

Mr. Roger is feeling a bit nostalgic (okay, when am I not?!?) for the days of post-war glory and hope, when cities were busting at the seams, spreading out and creating neighborhoods full of new developments. Let’s take a trip on the Internet highway for a look at the American Dream of the mid-century…home.

  1. Oh I love them all!
    The first home looks very much like many in my neighborhood, built mostly in the 50’s and early 60’s. I am working on a post right now (for my blog) about the mid-century home styles in my neighborhood. Luckily no one reported me for taking photos while on my morning walk 🙂
    Thanks for sharing.
