Real Estate Agent - Coldwell Banker Kittitas Valley Realty



I was taking some photos of a sign post that I make recently, and I found that the pictures were fuzzy when I tried to use them on a web site. I went to the local department store and bought a tripod for my camera. Now I am no camera buff at all, but the quality of my photos just went up a 1000% ...
I live in the Pacific Northwest, Washington State, and to be exact, Ellensburg Washington. Ellensburg is a small town of 20,000, which is home to Central Washington University. It is a great place to live and raise children, quiet, pretty, and envelopes much of what America is make of. We have be...
The stimulus plan that would not even see the light of day before it was voted on by a congress which had not read it. Oh my gosh, then to eliminate the only part of the plan which I felt may actually help stabilize the housing market, the 15,000 home buyer credit portion. Now today I read an art...
I have to confess here, I have been a steady oopponent of the stimulus plans, both the first one, all the bail outs, and the current stimulus/spending bill. I am a believer in the free market.

The telling of this story won for me the "Foot in Mouth" award last year at the Realtor awards banquet. although my foot definitely was involved, I am hear to say unequivocally that my mouth was no where near the event. I was showing the perfect home to my clients, just what they were looking for...
The idea was posed to me by the first broker I ever worked for. in a conversation about production and sales, (he) looked at me and smiled saying "women are just better real estate agents than men." At that point I did not have enough real estate backgroundto make a judgment of my own, or even ma...
I could never get into Myspace, actually I never tried. I did start a Facebook page as a source of networking. I understand that given time FB can become a good networking tool. Yesterday I got a "wall to wall" note from a friend showing some interest in a property I have for sale, there's the pr...
I had some extra time this afternoon, which is one of the main advantages of being a real estate agent, the flexible schedule. It has been a long winter in the Pacific Northwest and today the sun came out and warmed it up to around 50 degrees. If you have not lived in a northern tier state, you h...
As a new member of the community (hey there) I found that the web address I placed into my profile was short the http:// portion. Since the entire address was not there (my fault) it did not link to my web site. I assume that everyone else did it correctly until I needed to contact a community me...
