KIRKLAND, Washington (May 5, 2015) – Northwest Multiple Listing Service members notched a record high level of pending sales during April, surpassing the year-ago volume by nearly 1,800 transactions. Both closed sales and prices also surged last month as the spring market kicked into high gear.

Buyer confidence and buyer ability to purchase are fueling activity, suggested Ken Anderson, the managing broker and owner of Coldwell Banker Evergreen Olympia Realty. "Long building pent-up demand is being unleashed," he commented.

For the 10th year, The Cascade Team once again hosted Project Crayon Drive this April!   The residents of Northtowne and QFC Northtowne in Bellevue helped brighten a child’s life at Seattle Children’s Hospital by donating Crayola Crayons.  On Sat April 25 from 10am-2pm, customers at Northtowne QFC  donated crayons for children who find themselves receiving medical care at the Hospital.  For the young who find themselves at Seattle Children’s Hospital, sometimes the simple things like a coloring book and a few crayons can be as soothing as the trained staff and smiling doctors.  Several Northtowne residents shared their stories of medical help they received for their adopted children from Seattle Childrens’ which  allowed the children to lead a normal

Adventures in Gig Harbor!

To fully enjoy this park you need to check the tide tables and you want to go to the tide table and select a date or range of days.  In my case I selected May 4th, best day of the year because it's my Birthday!!!

Day High/Low Tide Time Height Ft Sunrise/Sunrise Moon Time % Moon Visible

4 Low 12:19 PM -0.7

April 4, 2012 report summary: March STAT reports a continuation of good news seen over the last several months. A 7.9% decline in inventory to 21,863, coupled with a 22.3% rise in sales to 8,869, exerts positive pressure on pric-ing. Once again STAT reports gains in all four pricing metrics: median and average prices, for both listing and sales. The upward pricing trend that began in the August/September time frame contin-ues. Although not robust, it is steady and definitely upward.
