Friday Harbor Estate
VIP Guests, Brokers and Musicians “Playing Music in the Sun”; Tour Rock Legend’s Estate
On July 6th, scores of guests attended a first-of-its-kind rendezvous at the home of Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Steve Miller, of the Steve Miller Band. Mary Norris, a Senior Global Real Estate Advisor with Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty (RSIR) hatched the plan to showcase this unique compound on its namesake in Friday Harbor on San Juan Island, which invited local and Seattle-area brokers as well as VIP guests.
In advance of the Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty (RSIR) Rendezvous event at Friday Harbor Estate in early July, Patti Payne of Puget Sound Business Journal highlighted the home, owned by famed rocker Steve Miller, in a feature discussing the Island’s market, the vast media coverage of the unique property and the event itself. Payne says, “it’s a big real estate sales time in the San Juan Islands, from the high-end properties to those more affordable” as homebuyers begin to discover the relative affordability within the best kept secret in the Northwest.
