I’d like to say I was doing research, but frankly I don’t remember. Knowing me, I was lost in thought whilst tripping the proverbial matrix of search engine rabbit holes. Afterall, it was my holiday so I followed my fancy.   “Take me where you will, Google!”   When something quite unexpected and amazing happened. Just after Thanksgiving I came across a post on the Black Diamond History blog by JoAnne Matsumura. Going home: Louise Fabre Joulia Persyn Bailleul It perked my curiosity. Could Louise be a relation? But I don’t recall any conversation about her when I was a child. Yet this photo of Henri Joulia, Jr., Louise Fabre Persyn, and Georges Persyn from 1912 captivated my interest and something about it looked oddly familiar. Over the Christmas Holiday this story would reveal itself. M...

        Located in Black Diamond, Lake Sawyer is the 4th largest lake in King County and is where some of the best Bass fishing can be found (or so I've been told).   The lake is approximately 286 acres in size and at it's maximum, 58 feet deep.   Because it is the largest boating/wake-boarding/jet ski lake in South East King County, prices for waterfront real estate are considerably higher than on some of the smaller, non-motor lakes in the area. At the very Southern end of the Lake is a magnificent view of Mt. Rainier. I have great photos I'll have to find of when my parents lived on the lake with a drop dead view of the Mountain in all it's glory.     On the South West side of the lake you'll find the public boat launch next to a small park which is one of my favorite places to stop...

About a month ago I met Ginger Passarelli Senecal, respectfully and gratefully referred to in our area as "The Soup Lady." Known as "Mama" to everyone who's ever met her, several years ago Ginger felt a compelling need to fill a desperate need by those who are "first responders" in times of need and disaster -- our fire fighters, police, EMTs, military personnel, search and rescue teams, and so on. Several years ago, Mama decided that the folks at her church needed more connection with one another. And so she began bringing pots of soup to the church after services. It was a way to get to know one another! As happens periodically in our area, in 2003 we had a windstorm go through the area that toppled trees, cut our electricity and other essential services. For many of us, it meant that...

Whether you're looking to move into the Maple Valley area, or live here currently, it can be interesting to look at market trends and stats by individual neighborhoods. This report is for the Greenbrier area, which is technically a Black Diamond address, but located within the Tahoma School district. There are several divisions, but all of these homes are located on larger (typically 1/2 acre+) than average.  In order to give the most accurate picture of this year in review for Greenbrier, I decided to go back and compare 2008 to the prior two years. Please note, these numbers reflect single family homes only listed and sold through NWMLS and do not take into account any "by owner" or private sales.     2008 2007 2006 Number of sales 3 5 7 % Down from prior year -40% -28%  n/a Average S...

  I am a Real Estate agent and manage a few rental properties. I recently had a tenant that was behind in her rent payment and struggling to come up with the needed funds. The reason for the shortage was the money was lost while she was out grocery shopping. Of course, nobody turned in the money and she was left with a great deal of disappointment. Her story was told at her local church and the Church she belongs to, which is the Lake Sawyer Christian Church decided to step up and help this individual. It was a few hundred dollars and I think this deserves to be recognized. Her payment is now caught up and I wanted this Church to be recognized for their efforts. I am not a member, nor do I attend this Church. I just think that this Church needed to be recognized for their assistance and...
