This little blog contains my thoughts on the business of real estate, a place to showcase homes for my special clients (YOU!), and a wonderful place to hear your thoughts on ... well, whatever! Come join in, won't you?



By all indications, it appears that 2012 will be a year with even more short sale listings … and closings than 2011. Some of the major banks have embraced the idea that short sales can be a bit more profitable than letting houses sit for months on end and then ultimately end up in foreclosure. Wi...
Like many, you may have been sitting impatiently on the fence for the last three years hoping for a miracle that would allow you to sell your existing home without sacrificing too much more equity … and buy at today’s price and interest rate. At least once a week I get a call from a previous clie...
Everyone now and then a house just captures imagination. Such is definitely the case for this unique house located in Wales, UK. This “hobbit” house was built completely by the owner, for an amazing sum of less than $5,000. It reminds me of the fairy tale houses of childhood stories. Just imagine...
I’m especially honored in 2011 to have been chosen as a Five Star Professional in their real estate category. I’m new to this one, so please forgive me as I carry on for a moment about this special award. It’s my understanding that this award is the result of polling of both the homeowners and ot...
We're hard at work baking Christmas cookies this morning, so hope you'll forgive the early Christmas message. No 'nog' involved (darn it ... too early in the day) ... but the tunes are playing and I've a few minutes between batches so thought I'd send this along now. The Irishman to whom I am mar...
I have a client that loves to send me little jokes and ditties every now and then. He’s just slightly older than I am and loves to pontificate about how prices are outrageous and how he can’t imagine how people can afford to live any more. In some respects, of course, he’s absolutely right. But i...
Yesterday I posted information about what to do as soon as you fall behind in your mortgage payments. As a second step in the foreclosure process in Washington State, the Foreclosure Fairness Act stipulates that if your loan is through one of the big banks, after receiving notice that a Notice of...
In Washington State, folks that get behind on their house payments have options as described in the Foreclosure Fairness Act. The Act prescribes a series of steps to which a homeowner is entitled prior to any auction of their home. One of the first steps a lender must take for a home in Washingto...
Five months in the making … and here it is! Congratulations to a VERY excited first time home buyer! May you enjoy many many years in your new house! And who wouldn’t – all that brand new space just for you, combined with an awesome view of Mt. Rainier and the foothills! Whoo hooo!!! There’s a m...
How about starting the New Year in a New House? One that's beautifully kept, has a fantastic floor plan, sits at the end of a culdesac in a small neighborhood with no through traffic ... and that backs to a greenbelt too!? AND was just reduced in price! Good grief, this is a better value than eve...
