Development of the Old Downtown Vancouver Burgerville, Stuck in Limbo - 03/23/12 09:33 AM
It was so sad to see one of the original Burgervilles torn down this last year. How many times I ate there as a kid! How many times I took my own kids there! And, with call in orders, how many times I called (on speed dial) their store when I was passing by around lunch time while on my way to my next appointment. Sad as well is to drive by the site and see absolutely nothing being done with it. The Columbian reports that development for the site, which is earmarked for a 16 million dollar, 92-unit apartment complex (1 comments)

New Review of Nickelsen Home Inspections on Yelp - 03/10/12 01:31 PM
Nice Review Just Found on Yelp (although, Yelp doesn't allow you to see it... it filters it because it is positive... I guess): I can always depend on Nickelsen Home Inspection to keep my buyers needs a priority. These inspectors reflect a business philosophy of excellent customer service, giving good information to the buyers, who have hired them, so that they, the buyers can make informed decisions.
