Affordable Eastside homes is almost an oxymoron.    Believe it or not you can still buy a home close to Bellevue, Redmond and Kirkland for under $400K. I am not talking about 600 sq ft 2 bedroom 1 bath homes. I am talking about 2 story 3+ bedrooms 1.5+ bath at 1500+ sq ft with bigger lots than mo...

Recently I have had the opportunity to speak with many agents.  I quickly learned that what we assume and take for granted, many haven't really thought through to it's true meaning. For instance, many have heard the phrase: "Your Real Estate Agent For Life!" But, when buyers and sellers call them...
