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". That name rang a bell for me because just last year I helped one of my clients buy a home that was being retired from "Mama's Hands".  At the time of the transaction I had done a little internet research to find out what

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. Younger consumers, like Gen Z, are even more environmentally aware, with nearly 70% making an eco-friendly purchase over the past year.

So which tree fits better

Hi All, 

I have a beautiful listing in the Cedar Falls neighborhood, right across from the park. Just thought I would throw it out there if anyone has interested buyers. c It has gorgeous mountain views from every window and is the largest floorplan in the neighborhood. Bring your buyers or send them to the open house this Sunday from 1:30-4:30.

  • The dollar volume of homes purchased by foreigners from April 2018 through March 2019 dropped 36% from the previous year, according to the National Association of Realtors.
  • Foreigners bought 183,100 properties with a total value of about $77.9 billion, down from 266,800 properties valued at $121 billion a year earlier.
  • “The magnitude of the decline is quite striking, implying less confidence in owning a property in the U.S.,” the Realtors’ chief economist says."

Challenging conditions in the U.S. housing market, along with tighter currency controls by the Chinese government, caused a stunning drop in foreign demand for American homes.

Hello All, 

This is a great cause that is easy to support. If you would like to help, a box of crayons (or more) will do the trick! Please see below for the details, every box helps- I really appreciate your support!

Our goal this year is to collect 250,000 Crayons for Children's Hospital!

The Cascade Team is once again hosting Project Crayon Drive this month!  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. Yet, something as simple as crayons often goes overlooked.

Each year, Children’s Hospital goes through over 240,000 crayons, but each child only gets a couple to use.

And that’s where The

In January, I had the opportunity to attend and become a member of the organization "100 Women Who Care GSV", what I did not know at the time was how much I would come to love what these ladies are all about! When my friend Adrianne invited me, it seemed like a simple outing with friends to support local organizations in the valley, all while having a glass of wine. As we walked in the door of Sigillo, we signed in, got name tags, grabbed a seat, a glass of Malbec and chatted with the ladies at our table. It wasn't long before the event was underway and there were two lovely ladies at the podium discussing what the night would hold... For me, this is when the magic began, it turns out that by the end of the night this room of ladies would all vote and

I hope you all are having a great start to 2019. So far we have been blessed with some beautiful sunny days to start the new year! Below is an ever changing board of quotes that we have hanging in our home. I thought I would share what I learned yesterday about the importance of those that help and service the items in our homes. It is these important people that keep our lives running smoothly on a daily basis. 

Learn from yesterday, Live for today, Hope for tomorrow.

We heard about Craig at Peacock Appliance several years ago when our dishwasher suddenly quit working, since then he has serviced almost every major appliance in our home. Most recently our washer unexpectedly quit and I found myself in a state of panic as I
