Just a comment that our schools need our help!  The buildings are in poor repair, the books are old and falling apart, and the schools in the Allyn and Belfair area are deteriorating.  Let's all lend a hand and make our community better.  This is certainly a quality of life in our area issue.  Go...

    Happy New Year Everyone from Puget Sound, WA.  (Hood Canal and Case Inlet)!  School in North Mason and Grapeview is 2 hrs. late, so we stayed up late and built a snowman.  My 8th grade sun found the pinecones for the mouth and eyes.  Today is warmer and the snow is going fast.      On the rea...

This year, I have one listing that will have to be a short sale and we are running out of time before the lender forecloses on the home.  Out of curiosity, I asked about this on the Trulia.com website and quickly  received an informed answer that gave me some cause to be careful and reflect on th...

It has been a busy 2 weeks getting in touch with past clients, relisting and extending listings as the football season winds down.  With the fall colors and sunny weather, watching my 8th grade son play and win is very enjoyable.  Of course there is always time to talk to friends and other parent...
