I am the techiest tech techster Realtor in Tri-Cities, WA!

I like the Internet.  I like my laptop.  I love my Mac desktop that I have at home but can’t use for business.  Our MLS (multiple listing service) doesn’t run well on Macs, so I have to use a PC, which is what my laptop is.  But the fact that I have two different kinds of computers doesn’t make me the techiest tech techster in Tri-Cities.

I love that my officemate calls me “Ms Googlemeister 2007” because if I need an answer, I go to Google. Everything from ‘is an avocado a fruit?’ to ‘lyrics for Hannah Montana’s theme song’ gets typed into the search box and the answer comes up seconds later. But the fact that I am a champion Internet searcher is not the reason I am the techiest tech techster in Tri-Cities.

I was at our local Realtor board meeting this afternoon and we were discussing the creation of a Technology Committee and who should be on it.  The woman next to me said, “Cari should be on it!  Cari is very techy!”  I shook my head.  Not in false modesty, but for good reason.  I don’t know anything about the behind-the-scenes workings of computers.  Just a week ago my Outlook Express program compacted my e-mail, which it does every week.  But this time, when it was finished, all my saved e-mail from May 25th on, had disappeared.  Now, if I were technologically inclined, I could get those e-mails back, couldn’t I?

So, people nod in agreement with the woman next to me who keeps insisting that I am a perfect candidate for the Technology Committee.  I keep protesting and finally, another woman from my office says, “She has a blog!” The man next to her contributes, (in all seriousness), “Well, if she has a blog, OF COURSE she’s technical!”

So, I have a blog. And apparently that makes me the techiest tech techster Realtor in Tri-Cities, WA! Ah, it’s good to be Queen.

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.
