Leavenworth Real Estate Blog's 3 Year Bloggiversary

This real estate blog has successfully been published for 3 years now and I am pleased at how it has slowly grown and matured. The blogosphere was young in 2005 when I first signed up for a Blogger account and jumped in the deep end of real estate blogging.

 

In those 3 years, I have seen the growth of communities like Real Estate Community, Rain City Guide and LinkedIn . I have gotten great tips about building a community through blogging and educating the consumer about Leavenworth real estate. Sites like The Real Estate Tomato and RSS Pieces have helped transform this blog from a short advertisements to a source for in depth news and analysis.

 

Blogging has helped build my business through educating buyers and sellers. I have been interviewed by the New York Times, quoted by the Spokesman Review, and have been invited to blog for the Seattle PI's Real Estate Blog.

 

For years, I was the lone wolf in the Leavenworth blog scene, but recently a few folks have decided to dip their toes into the water.

 

Local sites include the new blog format at Lake Wenatchee Info and the Leavenworth blog of webmaster 11worth.com. In the real estate world, Windermere's Erin and Blaine Davidson have a Leavenworth blog and Carol Williams has added Leavenworth Condo Blog to her ever growing stable of blogs. Local Leavenworth real estate agent Sam Ernst and his broker have even added a real estate blog to his LeavenworthLeavenworth.com site.

 

I wish all these newcomers to the Leavenworth blog scene the best of luck. With 80% of blogs dying and giving up in the first year, I know it is a hard row to hoe especially when the benefits aren't always clear. I also challenge these new bloggers to minimize the fluff and the self-promotion. Focus on educating the consumer, and we all win.

 

Best wishes to all in 2008.

Congratulations. I am glad that the Tomato has been such an inspiration. See you on the blogos.

Hey Geordie,<br/><br/>Congratulations are in order here. We're glad you have so much to add to the conversation!

Hey Geordie, was glad to see the notice on Dustin's site today, great news and congratulations.<br/><br/>Haven't been over to your site lately, I think I lost a few of my old AR SEO feeds, that gives me something to work on this morning. <br/><br/>Have a great year.

Thanks everyone for your support. Thanks too to Dustin at 4Realz.net for announcing my bloggiversary and sending me some traffic as a present.

I enjoy following your blog! The Bend Oregon real estate market continues to be slow. It looks like a good time to buy in your area.

As “west siders” looking for a getaway near Leavenworth, Geordie provided insight … his knowledge of design features important in a “snowy winter wonderland” was appreciated. Thanks Geordie!

Geordie made this somewhat complicated transition easier for us…going above and beyond to help us work through issues that came up during the sale of our parents home. We appreciated his knowledge, attentiveness to details and his willing spirit.
Our family is grateful for Geordie!

Geordie was great in every way. We have been looking in the Leavenworth area for some time, and Geordie was absolutely the best for local knowledge, history and depth on neighborhoods, developments and the local market trends. He was very quick to respond (even when he was on his vacation) and worked very diligently to get all of our questions answered in a very timely fashion. We would recommend him highly to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Very friendly, and helped us navigate all of the local options before we made an offer on the property that we purchased. Thank you, Geordie!

It was such a pleasure to work with Geordie and his wife, Allyson on our cabin purchase. They showed us a variety of locations, listened to what we wanted and helped us find the perfect match. Everything was smooth and not stressful, just relaxed and easy. We would definitely recommend Geordie and use him again if the need arises!

Moving to Leavenworth?

Are you looking for a cabin or a condo in Leavenworth that your family can use as a home base when climbing, skiing or hiking around Leavenworth or Lake Wenatchee?

Maybe you rent a house here and have decided to stay, surprised how a summer of rafting somehow turned into seven years.

Maybe it’s time to escape the hustle of the big city (and its rain) and move to Leavenworth with its four seasons.

Maybe you bought a condo years ago, don’t seem to use as much, and it’s time to sell.

Whatever your motivation, we are here to help. If you are buying a home, the best place to start is with our Homebuyer’s Guide to Leavenworth.
