Links Back to the Week That Was 10/19

By in Week That Was with 0 Comments

On Wednesday of last week, I was able to do a walk-through of a new home with a buyer that I have come to really enjoy spending time with.  She’s a Christian, like me, and she’s older and has raised four wonderful children into adulthood.  I love the perspective she provides – a sort of “this, too, shall pass” attitude.  It’s so easy to get caught up in the drama of the day that we forget that there is “nothing new under the sun”.

For example, there have always been layoffs and people losing their jobs, as happened at Redfin and Zillow this week.

Some cities crumble when times get tough, and some shine (as per this Business Week article).

People offer tips on how to save money, like how to detail your car like a pro.

We look for humor in grim realities – how fun? to find these on the shelves of my local library.

Tragedy strikes and we try to help ech other out.

We dig into foods we probably shouldn’t spend too much time with, but they look soooo good!

And we laugh, because at the end of the day, that’s still one of the best things you can do.

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.
