Have you ever heard Bill Engvall's "Here's Your Sign" routine?  It's a very funny take on people doing and saying things that Bill Engvall feels warrants that they should wear a warning sign around their necks so the rest of us can be alerted to their lack of intelligence.  Well,  Pierce County g...

Our real estate market here in Gig Harbor has been pretty healthy throughout this past year's national "crisis."  We're just now starting to feel the effects of the housing market slow down, and are for the first time in my real estate career pretty clearly in a "buyer's market."  While that may ...

I'm definitely not a green thumb.  About the only thing I can consistently keep green is the moss in my yard.  One of the advantages of living in Gig Harbor is our climate pretty much grows things on its own.  I have rhododendrons, roses, lavender, and other plants that I either don't know their ...

Here's the weekly look at Gig Harbor's open houses for this weekend.  Not too long ago open houses were beginning to fade away, as they were simply a tool for real estate agents to get more customers.  Now, as the Gig Harbor real estate market shifts, open houses are becoming a more useful tool i...

Gig Harbor's Uptown Center is getting further and further along.  I didn't really want to say this, for fear that my wife would read it, but Ann Taylor Loft is now open in Gig Harbor.  I'm going to have to sell a few more houses to support her Ann Taylor habit.  Actually, I'm quite fortunate in t...

Before I entered the world of real estate, I taught math for 7 years and was the head track and field and cross country coach at Life Christian Academy in Tacoma, WA.  Coaching cross country was a lot of fun, but it was a completely anonymous sport, and we were up against football and cheerleadin...

I frequently get emails and phone calls from folks who are considering a move to the Gig Harbor area.  One of the most common reservations is the weather.  I can't begin to count the number of times I've heard, "Isn't it always rainy in Gig Harbor?"  If by always you mean sometimes, or by rainy a...

I need to stop getting so caught up in these online forums that I read.  I just can't believe how negative some people are about everything.  I'm not an outwardly giddy type of person, but some of these folks must just be miserable.  I jumped into the online world with the idea of providing infor...
