home: Wake up call... - 07/24/15 05:16 PM
Somewhat ironically, I actually grew up about 2 1/2 miles from where I now live in Renton, Washington. We moved to the Earlington neighborhood in 1958 and it was the family home until we sold the place after Dad passed back in November of 1998. It was a challenge to let go.
Back in the day Renton was a small town with a population of about 12,000 or so. Our home was across the street from the “Little Woods” and west of that, down the alley behind the Shaw’s and a short zag on the path around the Hofmeister home, was the … (12 comments)

home: You boys go outside and play! - 05/29/15 04:05 AM
We lived in the Renton Highlands in the 1950’s. Our neighborhood, The Projects, was up on the east hill and made up of little look alike government homes that were built in the early 1940s for the amazing influx of people who came here to work at Boeing and Paccar during World War II.
After the war they were available for purchase and Mom and Dad bought our first home in 1950/51 for about $1,000. I’m sure its size (about 750 square feet) and there being three energetic young boys in residence had a lot to do with the amount of time … (32 comments)

home: A House is a Home - 07/28/13 05:50 AM
As the housing market heats up, I'm reminded:
 
A House is a Home.
 
I grew up in the Earlington neighborhood of Renton, Washington. I have many memories from those days, some great, some not. I remember playing hide and go seek, kick the can, olly olly oxen free, and exploring the woods across the street with my pals. Later it was sports, high school band, cruising the loop, and playing my guitar.
In those days I couldn't imagine our home as a financial investment. It was our home. We took great care of it. For us three boys, it was getting … (40 comments)

home: A Home is a Home is a Home... - 03/07/11 02:45 PM
I missed this one. We had a closing last Wednesday (March 2, 2011) just as I was leaving for the Northwest Video Summit with Frank & Brian of Think Big Work Small. A young couple was closing the purchase of their new home and had their 5 year old with them. He was a really cute, intelligent, and well mannered young man.
I had a lot on my mind. Last week was super busy with the TBWS video summit, RE Barcamp Seattle 2011 (March 3), and Mike Mueller stayed in town to give 2 workshops for The Talon Group clients on … (13 comments)
