This blog addresses topics of interest in the Kitsap, Clallam and Jefferson counties from the perspective of someone who has moved back to the area after being away for many years. I am licensed to sell real estate in the state of California as well as Washington and bring years of experience in that market that is helpful to my current Washington clients. For my nostalgic look at what it was like to grow up in the Puget Sound area, visit my blog www.newlifeoldhood.com.

With the 107 ft. tall Christmas tree festooned with lights and decorations and the nightly snow fall (man made-of course) it provides an excellent atmosphere of Christmas spirit. Even with the economic downturn, there...
All of the real estate gurus preach the virtues of time management. I for the most part, agree that without some time of plan, we just flounder adrift on the sea of whatever crisis arises at the moment. I have tried many forms of list making, time management, time blocking, etc etc but as of yet ...

Mac tricks: I take the Mac to open house and use the photo booth with the built in i-sight camera to take pix of visitors to the open house. I set up the computer with a sign that says, "picture yourself living here". I get their email and send them the pix. A fun and very unique way to get atten...
Tomorrow my husband, Bob Yousefian, Glendale City Councilman and I, are hosting an event at our home that most Realtors would die for! (Unless of course they were the ones actually trying to figure out the logistics!) We are hosting a holiday extravaganza at our home to benefit a local non-profi...
