Our New Years Blog Resolutions

As 2011 comes to  a close, many of us look towards the new year with hope and promise. For many, New Year’s resolutions are a way to make a list of things we want to do better, to try again, or to try for the very first time.

As this blog continues to evolve over the years (has it been seven already?!!) I thought some New Year’s resolutions for this blog would be a great way of previewing some of things we hope to have in store for you in 2012.

More Videos in 2012

There is so much we want to do in the video realm.  It’s easy to post home videos that we shoot ourselves, but ideally we’d like the production value to be better than that.  This takes both money, in terms of equipment and software, and time for both shooting and for editing.  We may or may not decide to hire someone to help us with these projects, or even better, find an intern looking to build a resume.

Our ideas for videos:

  • Home Tours
  • Neighborhood Tours
  • Interviews with Geordie and Allyson
  • Stories of client experiences
  • Interviews with insurance agents, mortgage brokers and home inspectors

In 2011 we actually filmed a series of educational videos about mortgages with local mortgage bankers, but couldn’t get the bank to approve them.

More Guest Posts in 2012

We love having guests add another perspective here on our blog. In the past we have had posts from local mortgage professionals like Darel Ansley of Peoples Bank in Wenatchee, insurance tips from Eric Kossian of Leavenworth Insurance, and home inspection info from Chip Roberson of Mission Home Inspection.

I would love to have more posts from these authors as well as other articles that would be helpful and educational to our readers.

Would you consider writing a post for us in 2012?

Expand Our Series “Life of a Leavenworth Real Estate Agent”

We have done just a couple of posts in this series. From the comments we have received, people really learn quite a bit about how we spend our time in these “behind the scenes” articles.

Did we miss anything?

What would you change or add to this blog in 2012?


Chris- We have always strived for great customer service. We did start a monthly customized sellers report for our clients which I think is a nice touch. It shows the online activity regarding the property as well as comments from agents and prospective buyers. It also outlines the market activity relative to the specific listing. Our content creation - new blog posts and videos has not been as great as I would like. Mostly because we have been blessed with so much business. We had our best year in the business in 2011 and 2012 is going to surpass that by a landslide. We have been wonderfully busy writing offers and listing new properties. We have started some work with a professional videographer and I looking forward to sharing those at some point in the future.

We are six months into 2012. How are you doing with your New Year's resolutions now? We have just one-"Great customer service will yield greater sales." It works.

Allyson and Geordie Romer

Leavenworth real estate agents - Allyson and Geordie Romer

For over a decade, Allyson and Geordie have been serving clients in the Leavenworth-area real estate market. Together, they work tirelessly to stay on top of the regional market and present the most relevant opportunities to their clientele.

When not in the office, they can be found exploring the endless recreation opportunities of the area in all of its seasons.




Geordie provided excellent real estate representation! We appreciated his detailed knowledge of the market, his up front and honest approach, and his negotiation skills.

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.
