We literally stumbled upon a property in the Gig Harbor area that had a for sale sign on it with Mike’s name. We called him and he was in Hawai’i at the time (on the tail end of a much-deserved vacation I’m sure), and he was flying back into town the next day — unfortunately, we were leaving town the next day. So we communicated via phone and email for the next few weeks and made the purchase of the home without ever stepping into it until the final walkthrough. Crazy, I know. But Mike was great. He was always available and extremely responsive, and someone who we fully trust. We have purchased several homes in California (not all at once!) but we’re new to home ownership in Washington, and he was very helpful. His love for the area (and his knowledge of the area) is clear, and I’m so happy that we found him. I can’t recommend him more highly.
Profile of the Point Evans on the Narrows Condominiums
Point Evans on the Narrows condominiums is one of the hidden treasures in Gig Harbor. It has a park like setting and is surprisingly quiet. It is very close to the Narrows Bridge but it is just north of Point Evans and the point blocks the road noise that you would expect to hear from the bridge. It is also close to Hwy 16 but the Hwy noise is blocked as well.
There are 8 buildings and 32 units. 5 of the buildings and 20 of the units are on the high bank waterfront and enjoy views of the Sound, Mount Rainier, and the railroad across the Sound.
These condos were originally built in 1979, but since then many of the owners have done extensive renovations. Its fun to go through the different units as they all seem to have a personality of their own.
Amenities include a clubhouse, gated entry, swimming pool, and a path to the beach.
