A Beautiful Autumn Afternoon in Orting, Washington. Yesterday was “THE” most beautiful autumn day I can remember for many years. My good friend and coworker Kim Schildt and I had an appointment in Orting yesterday so we drove down from Puyallup together. Orting, Washington is a small town of about 7,000 people in the shadow of Mt. Rainier. Back in the late 60’s I came here a lot to work with Bonnie Guitar and her daughter Paula Tutmarc-Johnson. Bonnie’s ranch was just a couple of miles outside of town and we made a lot of music there, back in the day. Kim was driving today so my hands are free for taking photos! Orting has a long history in these parts. The first recorded land claim was by William Whitesell in 1854 and the city incorporated in April of 1889. It’s a little strange for me...

During the month of January  there were 17 homes that sold in Orting. These Orting homes actually had a transfer of home ownership. Contracts complete and Lender funds available. The home buyer and seller signed all of their documents and escrow prepared the closing packages. Once all the I’s were dotted and the T’s crossed there where deeds recorded at the Pierce County courthouse that transferred the property into the new home owner’s name! If you want to learn more about how we transfer property in Washington State a really great site to visit is the Escrow Association of Washington site. There you can find definitions and explanations of the home buying process for Orting Washington.   Let’s look at those 17 Sumner homes -  Original median for sale price was $178,500 and the origina...

Your Choice Real Estate NW discounts the commission--not the service.  Truth be told, real estate agents are independent contractors and can offer discounted commissions if they want.  So why not?  Because the fee's agents pay the companies they work for make it difficult to make a living if they discount the commission charged. Your Choice Real Estate NW is a full service brokerage in Orting with multiple listing programs designed to lower the overall cost of selling a home.  How do we do this?  By lowering our overhead and lowering the fees charged to its agents, we can lower the costs to the consumer--YOU!  It is your equity.  Stop giving it all away.  Do yourself a favor and check out Your Choice Real Estate NW's "Menu of Your Choices".  Don't believe the hype.  Full service is abou...

Even watching Orting's Little League (OAA) is a thing of Beauty when you live in the Little City of Orting.  Orting, Washington is located about 10 minutes South of Sumner, Wa and just east of Puyallup.  We have that "Small Town Appeal", yet are close to shopping and Highways.  We've got newer schools and great community of friendly folks. Well, Orting isn't so little anymore.  I remember when we were excited to get the first stop light!  That was years ago, but it still hasn't lost it's beauty.  There have been many changes since I first moved to this great town.  It has always retained that "Hometown" feel. You have to appreciate when you can be watching your child playing little league in the Orting Valley and you get lost in the beauty around you.  We were playing at the Lyon's Club...

My family and I worked on the Daffodil Float last year and will be working on the float again this year.   We will start fund raising for our float now so we can start planning what to build in January.  We currently do not have a warm covered space to build the float in but are looking for locations.  We have one Orting princess this year and she just happens to be the daughter of one of my co-workers so I am very excited.   Below I have noted the Theme the pins they sell have a baseball player on them but we can do what ever we like that fits the "Swing into Spring" concept.  If any of you have great float ideas please let me know.  We always need volunteers to help fund raise, build, and stuff flowers the day before.  You can contact me on this site if you have any interest in helpin...

  Thursday, December 4th citizens, business owners, and property owners interested in the future of Orting's historic downtown are invited to an open house at the Multipurpose Center.  This will be an informal opportunity to view illustrations and other materials that will be discussed in early 2009 by the Orting Planning Commission and City Council.  The vision planning process has involved technical looks at parking, development potentials, and traffic management.  More importantly, we have been seeking to blend what we've heard into a long term picture of how the City, property owners, and business owners can work together to transform the downtown into a vibrant, beautiful active center of activity for shopping, residences, and community activities that will serve all ages and attra...

 Yesterday I saw a Warning sign I've never seen before...Simply stating ... IF you hear the Lahar sirens, you better hightail-it to higher ground (at least 50 feet - off the valley floor)We took the kids and two friends for a bike trip on the Orting to South Prairie "Foothills Trail".  We parked in Orting, at the park and saw a couple tying the knot.  What a treat!  Me without my camera... only a cell phoneOff to South Prairie we went... all the way dodging fishermen on bikes, on foot, on skateboards; basiclly anything that would take them to the river [the salmon are running]... on the way back to Orting, there were many carring their catch.... here are a few photos.... we all enjoyed the day and the sun!

119 new homes on the market as I write this! Doesn't seem like alot but it only takes 5 minutes to drive through the town and that includes its one stop light! www.cityoforting.org The small town is Booming! People want to move here. Starbucks and Safeway did! The builders can't build the homes fast enough. And its one of my Golf Course Communities. It is probably going to be one of my least expensive golf course communities featured on the blog. But probably won't be for long. The amenities the course offers include a great driving range, chipping and putting greens, a proshop, restaurant, and meeting facilities.It also features a hard to find Executive 9 hole course that winds through the well manicured neighborhood. www.highcedars.com Homes line the 5th and 10th fairways of the champ...

Located in Orting, Washington is High Cedars Golf Course, www.highcedars.com To start, this course has some excellent practice facilities to include, driving range, chipping green and putting green. I played the course the first week of February on a overcast day and was in great condition taking into consideration our recent weather. The price was, too my surprise, affordable at $20 to walk. The #1 hole is a great starting hole being a Par 5 dogleg right, immeditely following is #2, a long par 3. The course sets up appealing to the eye, wide open fairways but with trees and bunkers strategically located for amateurs' errant shots to be somewhat penalized. It boasts some incredible views of Mt. Rainier. It seems at times your at the mountains base rather than playing along the river tha...
