A real estate company has set up shop in an old old crane factory in Seattle’s Sodo neighborhood. The industrial neighborhood only has 800 residents, but the unconventional location is working for Metropolist and made the growing residential real estate company an unwitting trendsetter.
Launched two years ago, Metropolist is now the 20th-largest residential real estate company in the Seattle metro area based on sales, according to market data company Trendgraphix. Metropolist has 27 brokers and a staff of 10 employees. The goal is to have 60 brokers.
