Season's greetings on this frosty Christmas Eve! I have been meaning to share this post for the last week, but the week before Christmas has been a little bit busy. Wishing you and yours the best on this beautiful day!

We have been wanting to find more ways we can help people in our community and show Leif the importance of getting involved and helping those in need. In talking to one of my clients about this a few months back, he mentioned that he had taken his boys to feed the homeless through an organization called "Mamma's Hands".

Christmas trees are the centerpiece for many holiday celebrations and traditions. But, as consumers become more environmentally conscious, many may wonder: Which type of tree is more eco-friendly, real or fake?

After all, cutting down real trees seems to be shrinking our already depleted forests. However, fake trees are made of plastic, which doesn't seem all that green, either. 

These days, a survey by CGS found that for more than two-thirds of consumers, environmental concerns drive their purchases, and they're willing to pay more for sustainable products.

New data from the National Association of Realtors® shows that, together, young baby boomers, older baby boomers, and the silent generation comprised 39 percent of the buyers in 2019. Senior-related housing only accounted “for 13 percent of buyers over the age of 50; that number was eight percent for buyers 54 to 63 years and 29 percent for buyers 73 years and older.”

If you're in one of these demographics and are weighing the pros and cons of buying a home, read on. There are a number of factors

KIRKLAND, Washington (December 5, 2019) - Brokers with Northwest Multiple Listing Service reported "plenty of buyers" competing for sparse inventory during November, which ended with a 7% year-over-year increase in pending sales. The volume of mutually accepted offers rose even more (9.2%)  in the tri-county Puget Sound region consisting of King, Pierce and Snohomish counties, with Snohomish leading that list with a jump of about 12%.

Median sales prices also jumped compared to both a year ago and to October.
