I've shortened this blog significantly...I'm not usually a fan of rants, so I am just hitting the bare bones.  The state of Washington has embarrassed our residents...again. Minnesota went out and elected a pro wrestler (not even the real kind, but the dress in funny outfits and act kind) as gove...

Maybe it's the weather.  Maybe it's the fact that we'll all be at this weekend's Maritime Gig Festival.  Whatever the reason, there are only 7 open houses in Gig Harbor this weekend.  Click on the map below for a list of the opens.  Put your cursor over the pushpins to get the homes' information,...

In about one week, we'll be hosting the Dan Perkins Memorial Golf Tournament.  This isn't a charity event, but rather a day devoted to honoring long-time Keller Williams agent Dan Perkins.  Dan's wife, Sophie, is still one of the most valued members of the Gig Harbor Keller Williams team. I belie...

I'm relatively new to the blogging world (my blog was born in October '07).  I'm really new to this MeMe phenomenon (I saw it for the first time last week).  Apparently, bloggers tag other bloggers with a list of questions to be answered about themselves and then pass it on to others.  Christina ...

There is currently a humpback whale cruising around the waters between Tacoma and Gig Harbor.  It's pretty rare to have whales swimming in the Narrows, but apparently this guy is just hungry and didn't want to share his meals with any other whales.  You can actually see the whale from this waterf...

Nobody would argue that mailings that generate responses are more valuable than those that end up in the trash.  Yet many (if not most) real estate agents send mailers that even they would toss in the trash.  We justify our actions by saying, "Yes, but we're building mind share, and that's what m...

Thus far in May we've seen 17 home sales (and 0 condo sales) in Gig Harbor.  Clicking on the interactive map below will allow you to see what has sold in May.  Click here for April's sales.  By moving your cursor over any of the pushpins, you can see the price the home was listed for (most recent...
