Welcome To The Cascade Team Jeff Japar!

The Pacific Northwest is home to me. I was born and raised in the Bothell/Woodinville area. I grew up riding my bicycle in the streets, and playing outside with the neighborhood kids. I look back at my childhood in this place with fond remembrance and a deeply rooted sense of home. I have a vested, personal interest in shaping my community by building neighborhoods where families grow, play and bond. My family and I currently live in Granite Falls. We love living nestled in the evergreens at the entrance to the Mountain Loop. Nothing beats sipping hot coffee on the deck while watching the sun rise over the mountains. We spend our free time roaming the logging roads and trails with our dogs, or kayaking on any

After monitoring the account to determine the likely timing of a close, the hacker may send an email to the buyer, posing either as the escrow agent or as the licensee. The fraudulent email may contain new wiring instructions or routing information, and request that the Buyer send funds accordingly.

With scammers increasingly targeting real estate transactions, the National Association of REALTORS® is teaming up with the
