  Recently, my 6 year old son’s best friend taught him a new trick.  How to climb the walls.  Literally. The hallway from the entryway to the kitchen is fairly narrow and the boys place one foot and one hand on either wall and climb up to the ceiling.  Needless to say, it didn’t take long for my ...

As if homeowners facing foreclosure are not under enough stress,  people from both ends of the political spectrum have been quick to blame the current economic crisis on people who are in trouble.  Kelsey Grammer calls them evil-doers.  Rush Limbaugh calls them losers.  President Obama says they ...

As a busy real estate agent and homeschooling mom with six kids, people always ask me how I "do it all."  Of course I don't "do it all."  I don't even try.  My husband and I work together and we focus on our family, our clients, and our business and not a lot of other stuff.   Even at that, there...

How does your home smell?  Inviting?  Repelling?  Nuetral?  This is so much more important than you realize!  Scent is powerfully linked to memory and mood.  You want people to be in a good mood when they tour your house, and you want them to remember it! Last weekend, I showed many, many houses,...

House hunting with my grandmother was always interesting.  Before I was an agent, I used to pick up my Grandma  on Sunday afternoons and take her to look at open houses.  (We wanted her to move closer to us, but she didn't want to commit to an agent.)  My grandmother is a brilliant woman when is ...

With all of the bad news in the economy, and gloom and doom surrounding the real estate market, it's important to point out the great news.  Here are some examples of the silver-lining: The Seatle Area has been one of the toughest markets for first-time home-buyers for a long time.
