Lots of local stuff this week –

This came out on Thursday

A real estate developer accused of bilking Tri-City residents out of hundreds of thousands of dollars in deals involving property foreclosures has been charged with theft.

Forty-seven-year-old Armen Lucius B. Weishaar of Richland pleaded not guilty Thursday in Benton County Superior Court and was jailed on $100,000 bail. Trial is set for Dec. 8.

He’s accused of keeping money he was given by investors to buy foreclosed properties.

The Tri-City Herald reports Weishaar was arrested Wednesday after police saw moving trucks outside his condo.

and then Friday, we learned more.  I’ve met this guy, and like anytime you’ve met someone who winds up in the paper, for good or ill, you’re interested to see how it turns out.

And also, a builder with whom my clients have had personal, negative experience with, made the local paper and hit the TV stations with headlines that would give any PR director a migraine.

And I linked to something similar earlier in the year, so I don’t know if they’re repeating the story because it’s a slow news day or what.  But, the Tri-Cities REMAINS a fantastic bargain.

And remember how I urged you to watch Mad Men a couple months ago?  No?  Well, go read this. Then, go read this about the show.  Seriously.  Best show on TV.  Really.

Bye for now!

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.
