A Beautiful Autumn Afternoon in Orting, Washington. Yesterday was “THE” most beautiful autumn day I can remember for many years. My good friend and coworker Kim Schildt and I had an appointment in Orting yesterday so we drove down from Puyallup together. Orting, Washington is a small town of abou...
One of the things I love about social media is the people I meet and the connections I make. Most of the time these days I meet people online, then in person. And others I meet in person and keep the relationships going online. I met Anne Boyington of Trevani Truffles at the Renton Farmers Marke...
Wordless Wednesday: Vino Aquino Winery A great find last week on 6th Ave in the Proctor District of Tacoma Washington. Rock Star Red... Bottoms Up!
Yesterday I had a workshop to teach in Gig Harbor, Washington. I love the Harbor and getting there is half the fun. West on State Route 16 out of Tacoma and over the Narrows Bridge to the peninsula is almost always a treat. The original Narrows Bridge opened on July 1, 1940 and just 4 months late...

She’s located 54 miles southeast of Seattle, yet standing here in Sumner it appears but a walk across the fields and I could reach out and touch her. I never tire of of her beauty and yes, we in ...
I was in Alaska most of last week in Anchorage for work. One of the big highlights of the trip was Thursday morning (10/10/2013) at O'Dark Thirty when we flew down to Kenai to teach a day of clock hour classes for local real estate professionals. We caught a flight out of Ted Stevens Internationa...
If I were a fish with fingers... Having some fun at the Renton Farmers Market a few weeks ago with my Olloclip fish eye lense for my iPhone. When I went through the camera roll I had a good laugh when I noticed half of my shots had a finger or two in them. Not sure why I was doing that. As it tur...
If you’ve been in real estate for awhile hopefully you’ve taken a plant tour at one or more of your local title companies. You’ll find most of them have very detailed land records that predate statehood. I was in Yakima last week for work and during my visit I had a some time to hangout in the ba...
