Every time I meet a new Buyer or Seller, whether or not they were referred ( & I hope they were) to me by a former client, I have slight anxiety.
Obviously, there are some basic things you *NEED* to let me know in order for me to be best equipped to help you buy or sell a home:
– location preference
– price range
– bed/bath count
– big yard/small yard
– how fast do you need to move?
You know…the usual. But there are also a few questions that I really want to know but probably won’t ask:
…at least not right of way
1) What other Realtor ( Sorority sister, Auntie, Parents Realtor, half Uncle, old college buddy) have you also interviewed that you haven’t mentioned yet?
2) What are you actually qualified for? This said pre-approval that you mentioned on the phone, was that completed on line on a whim years ago?
3) Are we actually hitting it off like…super awesome…or is that just in my head?
Believe me…you are not the only one who feels a little hesitant! So let’s have some coffee and talk for real!
The sooner we get to know eachother the better job I can do for you!
I’m Georgia. My friends call me Peach. I live in Kirkland where I’ve been advising Buyers and Sellers in Real Estate for over 10 years!

Mom and I and our matching fluffy hair! This card and our logo was our first stab at team marketing.
It cracks me up when I think about the first time I met buyers and we drove to about 5 houses. I was NOT convinced that this was the job for me. And now here we are as a team 10 years later!
I’m so lucky my mom taught me everything she knows about this crazy exciting business of Real Estate.
New jobs, new babies, new locations, new life chapters…it’s an amazing career to work with buyers and sellers in the middle of big decisions. Feeling Blessed to have a mother daughter team in a career I love.
New listing in Lake Sammamish coming soon!!
The Northwest Multiple Listing Service has released new stats.
18% change in listings on the market over last month.
What does that mean? It means there is a finally a little bit more on the market. Buyers are just starting to feel that shift of more homes to choose from and less pressure.
In general, 4-5 months of housing supply is considered average, or an indication of a balanced market. If the supply drops below 6 months, some consider it to be a sellers market with prices expected to rise. When supply is greater than 6 months, prices are more likely to fall.
Current housing supply is hedging up to meet the demand.
Whoa. Ya, it’s been a while since I’ve heard the word “balanced” in relation to the housing market.
Sellers: Set listed. Get on the market. * Les go! * Don’t wait.
Buyers: Get serious about looking. You may not see it right away but you need to at least be ready when you find it. You won’t have to give away your 1st born to buy a home. I can help you with SMART strategy.
Current home owners: Check your interest rate and ask me about your current home value. With enough equity in your home (finally) now is a good time to refinance and get that PMI dropped off your monthly payment.
Renters: Really!? Do I even need to say it? As soon as the market gets balanced out rates WILL go up. A 1% change could price you out of the market entirely. You could go from pre-approved to not-a-chance. Don’t waste time. There is not a housing bubble. Get on the home ownership bandwagon.
