In the heart of Tacoma’s Proctor District, Morrison House Sotheby’s International Realty is challenging the idea of what a typical real estate office should look like. The company’s leadership has jettisoned drab cubicles and laminated desks and stepped up the design and style to reflect its artful approach of selling lavish properties in the Pacific Northwest. This well-appointed office offers polished concrete floors, tall ceilings framed by contemporary fixtures, and crisp white walls highlighting various works of art. Both the interior space and its proximity to popular eateries like Olympia Coffee and Cactus Southwest Kitchen + Bar make Morrison House an office worth envying.
❶ Have a Seat
Fresh flowers and a plush leather couch make morning meetings a bit more relaxed.
❷ A Better Board Room
Custom metal French doors, a reclaimed wood conference table, and floor-to-ceiling wallpaper create a visually appealing experience for client meetings.
❸ Room with a View
A large picture window abutting the street allows for plenty of natural light to spill into the office during day-to-day work or while hosting community events.
❹ Welcome Home
With the thoughtful placement of contemporary seating, bronzed light fixtures, and dark wood panels, the company’s lobby is more reminiscent
of a living space than an office.
❺ Keeping it in the Family
Husband and wife duo Michael and Tonia Morrison have operated the real estate company since the 1990s. In 2008, the couple became affiliated with Sotheby’s International brand.
❻ ‘PC Load Letter?’
Unlike the rage Michael Bolton felt for his company’s printer in Office Space, Morrison House’s delightfully appointed copier nook and supply room is about as serene as it can get.
