Leavenworth Shorts: Nov 16

  • Leavenworth will have a new mayor starting Jan. 1, 2007. Rob Eaton, a Leavenworth City Councilman, ran unopposed in this year’s election. Eaton said he is very excited and “looking forward to continuing the tasks that have been laid down.”
  • Local Olympian, Torin Koos, got pulled over last Saturday for obstructing traffic on his roller skis. A local resident called the police a Koos started up Beaver Valley Hill leading out of Plain. The resident was concerned since the road has no shoulder and hairpin turns. Koos is a two time cross-country ski Olympian.
  • Leavenworth Winter Sports Club is holding their annual fundraiser this Sat Nov 17th at the Enzian Inn from 6:30pm to 9:30pm. This year's main goal is to expand Junior and Adult ski programs and instruction. There will be a silent and a live auction. Tickets are $18 and can be purchased at the door.
  • The Cascade High School football team continues to win. They defeated Cle Elum 42-14 last Friday night. Cascade will head to Pasco this Saturday to play Royal (11-1) in the second round of the state finals. Cashmere High School also made it to round two of the state finals and will play Connell (11-0). Both teams face tough opponents, as Royals only loss was to Connell.
  • A few inches of snow still covers Steven’s Pass. The Pass received 8 inches earlier in the week but today’s rain has compacted the snow. The ski area typically opens when there is 24 to 36 inches on the ground. Mission Ridge continues to make snow and hopes for a Thanksgiving weekend opening.

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!
