What a fantastic weekend, weather-wise! In the 70’s, blue skies studded with puffy-white clouds. Perfect property-showing weather.

Look, look!  Move into your new house and decorate it with this groovy stuff!

The age-old question (no, not THAT one!) – buy or rent?  Looks like renters will pay a pretty penny here AND in the Seattle area, as occupancy rates are up all over.

I loved Sleepless in Seattle (who didn’t?), and now I could own a piece of film history.  The houseboat where the Baldwins lived in the movie is up for sale.  Here’s the thing – buying a houseboat is like buying a manufactured home on a rented lot.  The big value in any home purchase is the land you purchase that the home sit upon.  When you buy a houseboat – no land there.  But, over in Seattle, you get views and convenient access to the water (obviously), and in this particular case – you get a great stage upon which to recite oft-quoted lines and re-enact your favorite scenes!

This guy is my son’s hero.  You may recall we’re not WASL fans in our house. The kids in our schools just finished their testing for this year.  I kept urging my son to incorporate something about fashion into the writing portion of the exam.  He didn’t.  Some kids just don’t listen, I guess!

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.
