Sunny Days! As I wrote yesterday, our average temperature in and around University Place (and right next door in Lakewood), Washington is about 52. Of course, that means there are days cooler than 52. But there are also plenty of days warmer than 52. Those usually occur in the summer of course. But yesterday was pretty close to the mark - close to or in the 50s! And the sun has been gorgeous and bright the last couple of days. I snapped this photo as I took a walk with my senior mom earlier this week and thought it would make a grand picture to go with this Scripture passage from Psalm 108. As you probably know or can imagine, the real estate business can be full of dramatic and not-so-dramatic ups and downs. Most of us have seen this up close and personal over the last ten years! For t...

Washington is a beautiful state, full of evergreen trees, hence the nickname - The Evergreen State of Washington. The bodies of water are gorgeous to see as we drive around on errands or showing off the area to visiting friends and family. I really enjoy discovering new things about this lovely state, particularly the area of Pierce County where I am living and working. Five of my favorite cities in this area are DuPont (I love both sides, but the new homes, parks, and biking/riding trails are grand), Steilacoom (this lovely quaint village on the gorgeous and serene Puget Sound make my drives so peaceful), Lakewood, (good food, good shopping, good neighborhoods), Fircrest, (another piece of history blended with today and a lovely place to visit), and University Place (among many other g...

True Confession Time! I am NOT a mega sports fan. GASP! Yes, it's true. I rarely know who's playing who. I do know the Washington Seahawks won today and are still in the running for the Super Bowl. That's primarily because of the fun stories about blue and noise and how well they can play even in the midst of stormy weather. Plus I have a couple of loved ones who ARE major sports fans and we do have fun talking about sports occasionally. Fortunately, they are very patient with all my zillion and fairly dumb questions, but still.... While taking a road trip with one a few weeks ago, she was trying valiantly to keep up with a playoff game even though we kept changing radio station-areas. As part of our strategy, I downloaded an iPhone mobile app she recommended, Team Stream, and that also...

ActiveRain is a grand help for many of us in the real estate business. It's a terrific place to learn new things, encourage each other and be encouraged, and an excellent way to help grow our businesses online and off.  One of ActiveRain's guiding principles from their "Weltanschauung," is "we believe that real estate professionals will thrive if they demonstrate their local market expertise. With ever greater access to listings, local knowledge is now the key differentiator." Well said! Local knowledge is definitely a powerful tool for real estate agents to help their clients, those who live in the area already and - even more - those relocating to a totally new area. I love sharing information about the area of Pierce County Washington that I live and work in through my blog at Active...

For over five years, I've been blogging about boomers and seniors and real estate and life and caregiving and family and moving and... I've learned a lot over the last five + years. Some things good. Some things bad. Some things exciting. Today I learned something that made the younger folk in my family quite excited. If my senior dad was still with us, he'd be dancing the jig as well! What in the world could that be, you might ask? I wrote an article spotlighting the lovely town of University Place in Washington. This is one of several cities in Pierce County that is on the Puget Sound. It has grand schools, a lovely new civic center with the library, police department, city hall, and more. It has walking trails, and parks, and an excellent-sounding and resource-full senior center. It ...

My wife and I were trying to find a place for breakfast on a Sunday morning. We visited several places throughout Lakewood and University Place to no avail. Either we had had a bad experience before with most places or they were way too busy (Some were both bad and busy!) Then we remembered the Pine Cone Cafe (7912 27th St W University Pl, WA 98466) and we headed that way.  First thing to remember is to seat yourself. Next be ready for superior service, were had asking us what we needed to drink within a minute of sitting down. My coffee cup was always being topped off as was my water.  Although they were busy, our food arrived within 10 minutes and we were asked several times if we needed anything. Another thing I appreciate in a restaurant is cleanliness and the Pine Cone's staff is ...

During the month of January  there were 12 homes that sold in University Place. These University Place  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 University Place Washington.   Let’s look at those 12 University Place homes -  Original median fo...
