It's been a couple of months since I last visited Active Rain, and several more months since I've been "Active" on AR.  A few things played into my absense, all good.  1) Business picked back up.  I got to be #1 in my community during 2008, when I spent the majority of the year hiding behind my c...

Many of you know that my baby girl was born 6 weeks early, at just over 4lbs.  Within days, she had dropped to 3lbs, 11oz.  After 15 LONG days in the Tacoma General Hospital NICU, we got to take our little girl home.  Today, at 18 months old, she's as healthy as can be!  Yet there's still some h...

Often times when you're on the inside of something, you can miss what the outside perspective is.  The old can't see the forest through the trees analogy.  A colleague of mine mentioned that the perception of Keller Williams Real Estate here in Gig Harbor is that we're a new company, a little sta...

I tried to think of something witty about loving houses, or buy a house instead of a box of chocolates, but I came up empty.  So with no fanfare, nothing witty or creative, here is the map of open houses in Gig Harbor this weekend.  If you see anything you like, or if you have any questions about...
