For the first half of 2006, the average 3 bedroom home in the Leavenworth area. (including Plain and Lake Wenatchee) was $375,000. For the CONTINUE READING

I ran some stats today for the Leavenworth real estate market. The statistics show what my instinct tells me. Generally it is a Buyers market based on months of inventory and percentage of pending listings. However, sellers are continuing to raise prices and are perhaps more confident than they CONTINUE READING

I noticed today we have 83 active listings for single family homes in the Leavenworth area. This is certainly a CONTINUE READING

I had a spare moment so I decided to take a look at market numbers for the Leavenworth market. I think this is really important since these numbers are in contrast with housing sales nationally. (National Stats) If we look at the number of homes (single family, not condos or manufactured homes) CONTINUE READING

Will Zillow revolutionize the real estate industry? That's the question that seems to have surpassed all the bubble babble these past few months. For those that don't know, Zillow is a website that claims to help home owners price their home using sophisticated computerized pricing analysis. CONTINUE READING

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.

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!
