    The annual Harbor Days event in Olympia will be this coming weekend - August 31st - September 2nd, 2012.  This is always so much fun, since you can enjoy the waterfront and maritime tradition of this area, as well as craft booths, food, and plenty of people watching.   There will be plenty of...
One of my favorite things about selling Olympia area real estate is that showing houses can be much closer to fun than work when you get to enjoy a great view on a sunshiny day!  So, this past weekend being out and about with some buyers, I got just a teeny bit sidetracked by the beauty of the sc...
The Olympia Tour of Homes, put on by Olympia Master Builders, is always a great opportunity to check out some new and remodeled homes by some of the best builders and remodelers in our area.  The 2012 Olympia Tour of Homes began last weekend, and continues this coming weekend, August 25th & 26th....
    Sand in the City is always one of my favorite Olympia area summer events!  The 2012 Sand in the City will be this coming weekend, August 25th & 26th, with Friday giving you a chance to watch the sand sculptors in action!  And this year's event is in a new location at the brand new Hands on Ch...

When I wrote a letter to my cousin to let her know about the death of my Dad this past spring my only thought was that she would really want to know - and I just couldn't make any more phone calls.  But that one letter has spurred on a flurry of letters back and forth, and the unfolding of some f...
Pet Parade is an annual summer favorite in Olympia, and the 2012 event is coming up soon!  Saturday, August 18th at 10:00 AM, there will be a parade in the downtown Olympia streets.  A parade that features kids with pets of every type imaginable, kids with costumes, pets with costumes, kids on d...
The August weather in the Olympia area has been downright HOT the last few days - and the pending home sales are heating up as well.  Just looking at the daily "hot sheets" of market changes on our NWMLS has had that fact on the periphery of my mind, since I'm seeing homes that I've recently show...
