This little blog contains my thoughts on the business of real estate, a place to showcase homes for my special clients (YOU!), and a wonderful place to hear your thoughts on ... well, whatever! Come join in, won't you?
RECENT BLOG POSTS
Like many of you, I've been blogging for years. My posting habits tend to run to whatever seems to be of personal interest at the time. Sometimes I ask for help, sometimes I just offer my own opinions. Often I post about various houses and client queries and all sorts of stuff. And when researchi...

I am often somewhat amused by what the "experts" tell us about the reason real estate markets perform they way they do. In a recent article published by Real Estate Economy Watch, two Federal Reserve economists say that lenders have been applying stricter underwriting guidelines for potential buy...

Yesterday, I wrote a post about places on the Web I visit when needing a bit of inspiration. After all, there are days when getting going on business just takes a bit more effort.

It's been a statistics sort of morning here at my Auburn WA home office. I usually start the day by skimming the local newspaper (I'm a touchy-feely sort of reader). Reading the May House Sales article with interest, I noticed The Seattle Times report (from our local MLS) that house prices in my ...

Recently, a coach with whom I was consulting made the observation: "Blogging produces buyers. If you want to get more listings, you must Farm." Hmmmmm. Her statement was supported by the fact that most buyers start their home search online several months prior to actually contacting an agent/brok...

The gated Madera townhouse community at Lakeland Hills in Auburn, WA is gorgeous! Perched on the hillside as you climb up from the Auburn valley towards Lake Tapps, the units sitting on the front side of the hill have amazing views of the valley and the Olympics far to the west, especially on a s...

Years ago, I watched a developer scrape and then ultimately design a huge area on Lea Hill in east Auburn, WA, finally to be named The Bridges. There were grand plans associated with the area -- lots of parks, several builders with all sorts of differing price points, a bit of shopping. In short,...
