In the pursuit of home

By in Real Estate Career with 0 Comments

I love the unspoken rules that exist in various communities.  I love that there is honor even among thieves.  I was watching the Yankees vs. Mariners game today and found out something interesting.

Josh Phelps, first basemen for the Yankees, plowed into Mariners catcher Kenji Johjima (totally mowed him down, went out of his way to knock him over!!) while sliding into home.  My husband said, “He’s gonna pay for that.  He’ll get hit next time he’s at bat.”

“Really?” I asked incredulously.

“Oh yeah, you just watch.” he told me.

Phelps was up the very next inning, and sure enough, Mariners’ pitcher Jarrod Washburn’s throw beaned Phelps.

Excellent!  First off, anytime someone on the New York Yankees is hurt, I’m all for it.  Secondly, when things work like they should, when proper procedures are followed, the conscientious side of me skips with glee.

There are customs in real estate, too; especially within the Tri-Cities.  We’re still small enough that we know most other agents by sight, and certainly by name.  We’re still small enough that if someone ‘steals’ a client, that person will be ostracized until they somehow redeem themselves.  You play a dirty trick, you get walloped.  Period.

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.
