Last week I went to a business conference in Las Vegas. It was RE/MAX’s Annual Convention, called R4. I went to a safety class (no more Open Houses for me!) and the instructor had this quote on one of the slides –

I find it interesting in this world of ready access to quotes, even with a Bartlett’s Book of Familiar Quotations nearby, I’d never heard that before.

SO MUCH of my job is based on gut feelings. This never-before-seen client that wants to meet me at my new listing…valid buyer or assaulter? Will the market support a $5,000 increase over the comps on this house just because it’s decorated perfectly? The dreamy-eyed look this buyer has…is this house THE ONE, or did the buyer not get enough sleep last night?

Don’t get me wrong – a LOT of my job is also numbers-based and details and fact-finding. It’s walking that line between the two worlds, using just enough of the gift and the servant, that creates the perfect scenario.

My husband and I came to the Tri-Cities in 1994, and we thought it would be a temporary stop on our way to larger cities. He was a television sports anchor at the time, and we planned to go wherever the "next step up" took us. Twenty-plus years later, we're still here and we've loved every minute of it! We have two children now, and we've found the Tri-Cities area is a wonderful place to raise a family. It's a great place to do outdoorsy things -- I like to hike Badger Mountain or run along the river path. I also love reading ... by a cozy fire in the winter or a beautiful picture window in the summer (with the A/C on!). I've been a licensed Realtor since 2004. I earned my managing broker's license in 2016, which means I can run my own brokerage, or create a team of real estate agents and supervise them, which is exactly what I did when I formed the Cari McGee Real Estate Team in 2018! We have administrative and marketing personnel, as well as additional agents to serve you. I became a director of the Tri-Cities Association of Realtors Board of Directors in 2016, became Secretary/Treasurer of the organization, and was elected to Vice President in 2019.
