Sure, apps are convenient, but buyers need the personal experience and expertise of a real estate agent, too.

Why work with a real estate agent in this internet filled world we live in? Let me put it this way: You could do a Google search for “Paris” but what if one of your good friends has been to Paris say, 20 times over the last few years? Isn’t it good to get advice from both? Sometimes the internet can be overwhelming with facts and data, and the use of a good reliable real estate agent can help you decipher which facts are the most important for you to know. Also, it’s one thing to see a property online, it’s another to stand in it physically and really get a feel for how big the space is, how much light it’s getting, and how close the…

Welcome To The Cascade Team Shawna Stanley!

I live in south Snohomish with my boyfriend of 11 years – Chris Avery.  We are now ‘empty nesters’ as all our 4 children are in college or living on their own.  I left Microsoft about a year ago after working there for 17 years.  I wanted to leave the stress and long-hour position and take a break to decide what to do next.  This last year  I have been doing remodeling projects, sold and bought a condo and took some time to relax.  I have always loved looking and investing in real estate so thought getting my real estate license would be a great second career for me to pursue.  Now that I have my license I am excited to start with the Cascade Team!

Shawna will be a wonderful addition to The Cascade…

Other brokerages are inconsistent with their commission rates...

With The Cascade Team, you will always know what you are getting!!!

Getting the most for your home or property means doing more than putting a "For Sale" sign out front. In a competitive market where new homes for sale are added daily, your listing needs to be seen in a variety of places in order to stand out. And sometimes the right buyer is waiting out of state, or even in another country. To ensure sure your home gets noticed and sells without a hitch for full market value, consider working with a top professional. It could mean the difference between no sale, and the payoff you've been waiting for.
