Amorn Thai In Mountlake Terrace Setting The Bar High! - 02/20/09 03:17 PM
Amorn Thai in Mountlake Terrace - YES! Mountlake Terrace is making hanging out in the Seattle Suburbs worth every bite! I have long been a fan of Thai food and have frequented delicious Thai places like Penn Thai in Bothell and Chantanee in Bellevue, but Amorn Thai BLOWS THEM AWAY in my mind! This is a tiny little Thai restaurant in the unlikely spot of Mountlake Terrace, but neighbors are thanking their lucky stars that it is here!
Where is it? 22826 56th Ave W Mountlake Terrace, WA 98043 (425) 712-9112 They do great take out or dine in and (4 comments)

Cobra Help With Stimulus Package - 02/19/09 02:51 PM
COBRA help can free up housing money, too! Along with the $8000 housing stimulus credit which just got signed, I was happy to see that there is help for families needing to continue their health coverage when their job ends. When you continue to pay for benefits to your ex-employer so that you can receive coverage it is called COBRA. COBRA is expensive but necessary if there is a lapse in employment and you need medical insurance. Bravo to Obama for helping these families, too! How? There will be a government subsidy to help pay for COBRA benefits equal to 65% according (4 comments)

These are great shots so I wanted to pass them along as well! Via Dinah Lee Griffey Allyn, Belfair,Bank Owned,Homes & Land (Windermere Peninsula Properties): The Morning came very quickly and the girls and I headed out to catch and early Ferry. Along the way we stopped at the Pike Place Market to grab a quick cup of coffee...This is Seattle! I thought I would grab a few photos that you do not see in every publication about the market. "The Before" It is amazing just how quickly they work to set up in the morning. So here is a few rare before (5 comments)
Seattle REBarCamp - Thanks! - 02/15/09 11:05 PM
Seattle is a perfect place to host this! I only got to attend the first half of the Real Estate Bar Camp in Seattle because I did have an unexpected buyers tour I needed to go on, but I had so much fun and it got me wanting to go to the Portland version in the next couple of months. This is a great impromptu way to see what is going on inside the industry! I met Bob! There were so many amazing people there and I was so happy to finally get to meet people rather than rely on the (10 comments)

Seattle Real Estate Picking Up in 2009? - 02/09/09 09:06 PM
There is still a lot of bad news out there, but... My phone has been ringing off the hook lately in regards to Seattle real estate. For the last few weekends I have juggled multiple clients - both buyers and sellers, but mostly buyers looking to take advantage of low rates and some great tax breaks. Buyers are out there looking strong and now might be a great time to spruce up the house a bit so that they are well received! The houses that are really making an impression are the ones that are cleaned up and well presented, but (1 comments)
