Winds Blow!Windstorms are not uncommon in the Northwest this time of year.  This is at least the third one this Fall/Winter season and more are projected. We are known as The Evergreen State due to our many tall trees, but trees and winds don't always get along.  If you are new to the Northwest, having an alternative means of heat and cooking can be very useful in times like this.  If you can, a generator is a wonderful investment too.  Gas cook tops can light with a match, but don't rely on them too much or you may end up with Carbon Monoxide Poisoning. NEVER bring a barbecue or propane stove inside.  This picture is of a fairly busy street in Sammamish with a Douglas Fir resting on power lines.  Puget Sound Energy is doing all they can to restore power to all that are affected, but th...

Happy Independence Day Sammamish!  We’ve seen a lot of changes through the years, but one tradition we love is the Fouth on the Plateau celebration at the Sammamish Commons.  Live music near city hall starts around 6:00 pm with vendors on site for food and activity booths. The bounce houses are fun for smaller people in the lower commons area. The fireworks start after 10pm. We like to find a piece of grass on the natural bowl in the lower commons and lay back and enjoy the show.  It’s always fun to see so many people turn out and have a great time. Parking can be a challenge, so consider arriving early and plan to walk. Some neighbors provide parking for a fee. Nearby schools, businesses and community organizations also have parking available. The weather this year will be cool, but th...

My Three Sons!Fred McMurry had nothing on me. I'm so fortunate to be the father of these 3 great boys/men, both then and now.  We've all gotten older, hopefully wiser but I'm as rich as a man can ever hope to be with these guys in my life.  This picture was created in 2013, so it's almost time for another update.

Having deer in my yard is nothing new. I could probably see some everyday.  What I enjoy is the transformations through the year. This spike, a young buck was probably here before as a fawn, but now that he's grown a bit, his velvet covered antler's are evident.  I can't wait to see him again in the fall when they are on full display.

Sammamish Homes on Large Lots! One of the great things about Sammamish is that there are homes and lot sizes for everyone.  From new construction on smaller lots with neighborhood parks to beautiful homes on ½ acre and larger parcels or land.   If you want a larger lot, don’t assume you have to break the bank.  While not starter homes, a quick search finds that as of right now, prices for recently sold homes fitting this description start in the low $400’s.  As of this writing there are listings in the low $500’s available.  Some of these homes may be older or in need of updates, but if you can see the potential there is opportunity. If you have the funds and want some readymade luxury and privacy, there are estate like homes from the upper $700’s to over $1,500,000.  This includes some...

As your clients take eons to list their home, be patient and remember the living they have done there.    My parents moved into their dream house when I was 3.  They chose the lot in a new development in Redmond Wa. (Timberline), the builder (John Buchan), and the house style (rambler/ranch).  It was everything they wanted.  At the time they bought it there were no other houses around the property only trees and roads that promised neighbors with the hope of good friends.    The house saw us through 30+ years of holidays, parties, new jobs, new friends, and tears of joy and sadness.  Our house has been cherished by one family through the good times and the bad.  Passed from a couple to a mother to a daughter and with a heavy heart I am preparing it for sale.     As I hire the contractor...
