In Part I of this post, I reviewed new construction and communities by DR Horton, Soundbuilt Homes, Schneider Family Homes, and Conner Homes. Because new construction is such a huge part of our south King County and north Pierce County Auburn location, I’ve split my quick overview into two posts....

Acquiring a new home is thrilling for every Buyer, but new construction, in particular, maintains an exceptionally high level of anticipation, followed by what seem to be endless delays and frustration, and then finally culminating in a near fever-pitch of excitement.

I was a bit (well, a lot) skeptical about whether we’d end up with a storm of the magnitude the weather folks were predicting early last week. We were to get 12-18” of snow. Uh huh … right!

Perched above the Auburn valley, there are some staggering views of the valley, southeast of Mt. Rainier, and east to the Cascade...

Usually with the all-chatty salesman in the backseat, telling us exactly why this car is THE one to buy. We’ve...

This is a never-ending business. We work until all hours of the night and yet most agents I know feel so blessed to be working the way we do. This evening, after a long day at the computer, punctuated by breaks to play ball with the dogs, I met with a new client and helped him begin to dial in to...
