Okay, I would pass this first test if the darn program realized that Maine and Montana are exactly where I say there are!  This post courtesy of Teresa Boardman in St. Paul Minnesota.

Waaay back in the 1980’s, my husband wrote a speech about abolishing the penny for a class at Pepperdine.  I remember reading his rough draft and was astounded.  Get rid of the penny?!  We already got rid of the ha’penny, a fave denomination of Dickens and Christmas carols…what more did he want?  Well, apparently, it makes economic sense to do away with them, according to this recent 60 minutes story, by way of The Consumerist.

I had a chat with a client this week.  He lives in Chicago but keeps an eye on our economy out here, as he owns some land that might become pretty valuable one day (it’s in the Red Mountain Appelation).  He said, “You’re going like gangbusters out there, aren’t you?”  I proudly reported that we are.  This article in The New York Times mentions Yakima, but it could have easily been us.

And, I decided to change my ring tone on my cell to Daughtry’s Home.  My son, a Daughtry fan, was all for it, and even more so when I explained the connection – “Get it?  Home, and I sell homes??”  “Oh!” he grinned.

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.
