Remember when? - 11/27/09 10:50 AM
I enjoy writing an occasional piece for the local paper. It is a change of pace and tests skills I don't always use. This particular one is about growing up in Wenatchee and the role radio played... much better than TV...lol! Anyway for those of you that might be interested or that want to take a short step back in time and remember how we grew up you might find this link of interest http://tr.im/FWXo It was another day and time and we do all grow up (ok, Peter Pan excepted) but it is fun to stop and remember... thanks for (4 comments)

One of the special features of our town is the development, in the last few year, of a river walk/trail system. Initially the loop was about 11.5 miles in length. Today there are several additional extensions. But it is a great place to be, relax and exercise. I started near (0 comments)
Market Pricing - Now there is a novel idea! - 11/01/09 11:33 AM
This morning I read the following post and I agree! (See below). In fact I had to chime in with more thoughts. We have all seen them... overpriced and out of the market but still in MLS. Before going on I have to subscribe to full disclosure and that is I have had a few too... but some of the ones I see I would be embarrassed to have listed at that price. So whats the deal? First from "04 to now, even with recent attrition there are a lot of comparatively new agents that just have not really dealt in a flat (10 comments)
