Hide Profile

Crawford and Conover, Inc. was a Seattle real estate firm established in 1888 by two reporters from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Samuel L. Crawford and Charles T. Conover. Crawford and Conover engaged in real estate, rentals and property management, fire insurance, mortgage loans, and investments. Conover is credited with coining the nickname "The Evergreen State" as part of the company's national campaign advertising the state of Washington and the city of Seattle. After Crawford's death in 1916, Conover continued running the firm, only retiring in 1941.
