Why Anderson Island?

About Anderson Island and How I came to the Island

Ferry at SunriseAnderson Island has a long and rich history of which I am happy to be part of for the past 7 years. 

I moved to Anderson Island on December 1, 2000, from Lakewood.  I stumbled across the ferry dock one day while riding my bicycle.  I took a look at the ferry schedule and decided to go for a ride on the ferry and ride my bike around the island.  Wow!  I was in Heaven. 

Weeks later, I had a client come to my office and apply for a home loan....and guess what?  He was buying a home on Anderson Island.   I could not believe the price of the home he was purchasing and the thought of living on an island intrigued me enough to go looking for a home. 

Long story, short...I purchased a home and later sold it after Eric and I met and now we have a home on 5 acres along with all our animals....18 chickens, 5 turkeys, 3 cats and 2 dogs.  Life is good.

I had been a mortgage broker for almost 8 years when a friend talked me into getting my real estate license and taking over her clientele so she could retire.  That was the best move I've ever made...as far as my career. 

I love what I do, I love the Island life.

Come check us out.  We're just a short 20 minute ferry ride from Steilacoom.

This sounds like a touch of heaven.  You should do a post with a lot of pictures.  E-mail me when you get that posted.
