We were grateful to chat with Rebecca Yuan, the Sales Director of Concord Pacific Developments, on their upcoming condo project in Seattle, The Seattle House Condominiums.

With the developer still firming up some of the details, we will definitely come back for a second question and answer session to get the remainder of our questions answered as they closer to their sales process, which will possibly start in late August.
