Leavenworth Horse Property

Horse property in Leavenworth WA is hard to find. There are two obvious reasons for this. First of all, land here is becoming more valuable every day - larger parcels continue to be split up into smaller ones that aren't roomy enough for horses. Secondly, we are on the slopes of the Cascade Mountains. We have a lot of hill country and not the large flat expanses that you need for horses.

Helping the kids get their First Home

Guest Post by Darel Ansley of Peoples Bank in Wenatchee

Many homeowners I talk to are excited about all the appreciation they have gained over the last few years, but for us Baby Boomers, the conversation often turns to : how are my kids ever going to get into a home? This has been an issue in the Puget Sound region for some time, but now we are having to address this issue in our markets of Leavenworth and Wenatchee.

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!
