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.

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.
