Multiple Offers

This is a hot market and I am finding myself representing clients in multiple offer situations more and more. I can think of 7 instances recently where this occured.

It’s Spring!

You might guess this is the annual “Spring Is Here, Time to List Your House” message – it’s not. No, I just thought I should chronicle the crazy weather we’ve been having lately. Steven’s Pass closed early after a horrible ski season and the weather has been unreasonably warm. Highs have been in the 70s for some time. Luckily we’re getting a bit of …

They have been closed ever since. The effect on the Leavenworth has been sad. Many of the seasonal employees who work at the resort have …

Trends in Real Estate

These single story homes are also known as ranch style houses or even “ranchers.” Single story Leavenworth homes are becoming more and more popular every year. Why are Leavenworth ramblers so popular? Simple demographics. Our population is getting older every year and …

An agent in your neighborhood?
