Do you feel the pressure of Cupid’s bow because you’ve been slow to hatch the perfect Valentine’s Day plan? Don’t worry about it. I’ve got you covered with a few ideas that are sure to put a smile on your sweetheart’s face—and ensure that Cupid’s arrow is aimed at his or her heart, not your head!
- If a fancy, romantic dinner will do the trick for your ideal Valentine’s Day date, Ristorante Paradiso is the place to dine. Serving quintessential Italian cuisine with a wonderful wine list, this stellar restaurant offers an intimate atmosphere and a local vibe. But, it’s always packed—so be sure to make a reservation!
- When you’re ready for dessert (and, really, who isn’t?) be sure to make your way to Lady Yum for a scrumptious and delectable assortment of mouth-watering macarons and champagne.
- If you’re looking for a more casual night out with your sweetheart, why not keep it low key and have a few local beers or ciders and play a round or two of Mini Golf at Flatstick Pub? It’s always fun, and you can even bring your pooch—because I know who is really the love of your life, am I right?
It’s hard to choose favorites when there are so many gorgeous parks and beautiful water views in Kirkland but here are my “Top Three” because of their spectacular sunset views around Lake Washington.
- Lake Lane
- David E. Brink Park dock

My Name is Georgia, friends call me Peach. I live in Kirkland where I have been helping Buyers and Sellers for 14 fun years! 206.948.0431
Letter of Authority!!! My sign will go in soon. If you or someone you know is looking to buy new construction in Kirkland, call me for details. I’ve got an exclusive listing agreement and proud of it!
Kirkland is hot! So hot! Have you noticed all the new construction popping up downtown near the Library, on Market and near Houghton Beach Park?!
Well stay tuned for more info on this new development by Envision Northwest. There’s only 6 homes!
More info weekly.
In 2006, this top floor view condo in Juanita Bay was sold for $575,000. At it’s lowest point, the appraised value and Zestimates were hovering around $325,000-375,000.
August 2016, I negotiated 2 offers. The first one walked as we haggled over a low price.
There are just 42 units in the corner of this protected bay which is a bird sanctuary and surrounded by parks on both sides.
I instructed the Seller to hold out and we could do better. 2 more weeks go by and then we got a good one and settled at the final price of: $694,500.
I am still getting “Zestimates” that say the value is nearly 100K less than what I sold it for.
Real Estate value will ebb and flow with the seasons and the economy but over a 10 year span there is historical evidence that supports that values steadily go up. Finding the right buyer at the right price is what my job is as a listing agent. Not selling fast. Speed does not translate to expertise in real estate.
Knowing when and how to market and sell a property to maximize your profit is everything.
You don’t have to be the expert, you just have to hire one.
I am a 2nd Generation Realtor who got my Real Estate license at 19. I receive referrals and recommendations from friends, family and other Realtors who know they can rely on my area expertise. And so can you.

I love a good collaboration when it comes together!
Caramel + apples!
Corn maze + Hay ride!
Art + local business!!
Ryan James Fine Art is doing an amazing job bringing culture and color to local business. I spotted this colorful number trifecta at Waxing the City Kirkland. 3 cheers!
The Kirkland Wednesday Market is still in full bloom! And the veggies are sweet and fresh – especially the tomatoes.
What a day for a walk ’round the marina and a Cappachino at Aura!
Love my city! Don’t you?
Supporting the Seattle King County Realtors and fitting into the framework of what I believe in!

A Full Home Inspection.
Knowledge is power. Take the fear out of the dreaded inspection by doing it yourself! This is everything! No Buyer will be able to surprise you with a repair or reduction in purchase price when you already know what’s behind the paint and under the house.
Shampoo the Carpets.
No odor is the best odor! Think: New Car Smell. It’s clean and fresh and ready for the Buyer. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve opened the door for a Buyer to show a home, and a funky odor seeps out of the house! This happens all the time. It’s the first impression for the Buyer and it will literally make or break a potential offer.
It’s cheap, easy and effective. Nothing says groomed and ready more than a fresh lawn and fresh beauty bark. Curb appeal is what gets the Buyer excited to GO INTO THE HOME. You can’t get an offer if the Buyer is not even compelled to go inside and take a look. And like a book cover, it’s a good indication of what’s inside!
I’m Georgia. My friends call me Peach. I’m a Second Generation Realtor obsessed with Real Estate since 1999.
